    Dexa scan

    DK’s public service announcement I got a dexa scan for the first time today and would recommend it to those who haven’t done one in the past.

    Joined a new gym (planet fitness)

    So I joined a new gym called planet fitness (pronounced pfffff). I like it because it I like it’s colors and that fact that they don’t have any barbells that I could hurt myself with. They also are quick to offer encouraging works and like to remind me that I belong and I am accepted. The...

    Full range of motion. Why?

    Those who were in the game in the 90’s might remember the ads and introduction of Power Factor Training. They used Paul Demayo as their spokes person and it was an overly complicated system that required a stop watch and mathematics. One of the aspects of it was the exclusive use of partial...

    Shbg too low?

    Anyone know the effects of having low shbg other than it making sex hormones more “available” My last two blood tests have showed me being lower than normal and I can’t find much literature on it that isn’t geared towards females. On the surface more free T sounds great if I am managing my...

    Weider Principles - the fundamentals never change

    Saliva Kits for testosterone testing

    Looked a little pricey, but has anyone used those saliva tests kits you can get at CVS to test their testosterone? I am wondering if they are a viable option for those who live in states that don’t allow private blood work.

    Female Bodybuilding Circa 1984

    Hard to believe that in 84 if question was being asked if Gladys Portugues was too muscular. I always appreciated her physique, but don't even think she'd place in an amateur show now a days. Side Note: I don't remember Brian Moss, but look at that hair!
