    Beard Softener

    Anyone found any beard softener that actually works for really thick/wiry beard hair? Over the last year or so mine has gotten to the point where the parts around my chin are the texture of fingernail lol. I've used Maestro's Bear Butter, Honest Amish balm, and some different conditioners to...

    Zarzuela de Peix (Spanish Cod Stew)

    Here is a delicious Spanish cod stew recipe. Not for prep obviously, but can be used during normal dieting. Just weigh out your fish per serving and add a little broth and veggies. Just add a couple grams of fat and a few carbs to the macros of the fish and you should be pretty close to reality...

    20-hydroxyecdysone - Dante Trudel

    So I figured I'd post this up to share with the community. Dante wrote a long blog post on this compound and it's amazing looking studies. Orally it's metabolized off too fast to be effective, but as a local/site specific injection it looks to be of tremendous value. Anyone have a way to...

    Still Delivering the Goods

    Just a quick note for GC. Still keeping up the good work for me. Solid as ever. Aromasin is still working reliably, and just tested out some of his Viagra that feels correct to me. Just figured after years of solid service and products I'd say something publicly to acknowledge that. I always...

    Anyone else having issues with logging in here on Tapatalk? Earlier I couldn't login at all, now it's just Tapatalk. Kind of odd. I haven't been able to get in since this morning

    Contest TD

    Hey guys, got me a surprise in the mail! My MK-677 from the contest a while back happened to show up. It had looked like it got lost in the origin postal service so I didn't sweat it since it was a gift anyway. Then suddenly it arrived! The package took a serious beating so I have the feeling it...

    Lazy Ass People...

    What the hell is going on with lazy ass people looking for spoon feeding these days? It seems like over the last two weeks we've had a big boost in breastfeeding requests. I can't understand why people would trust one of us jerkoff "vets" without at least vetting how much of an asshat we are...

    CKD/Kidney Recovery Regimen

    Alright, I know the kidneys are the most underappreciated and under-remembered vital organ in our body when it comes to lifting and using gear. Most don't even think about it until they feel like shit one day and get labs done, to find their eGFR is low and they have chronic kidney disease...

    So here's some interesting stuff I just stumbled across while looking stuff up. Here's an abstract regarding the role of HGH and IGF-1 in increased kidney function. The long and short is that infusion of rHGH in normal and GH deficient adults increases both eGFR and renal plasma flow, both...

    Beer Teriyaki Steak

    This can be used for steak cut into cubes and fried or just as a marinade for your favorite cut of steak. We typically do sirloin or another cheaper cut and use it for meal prep! Today we swapped the beer for Ace pineapple cider and it turned out killer. A nice extra sweetness instead of the...

    George Peterson Wins Arnold Classic Physique

    What are your thoughts on this? I've only really started following bodybuilding again over the last year and was kinda liking the way this division was going. To me George Peterson doesn't have the physique to compete in classic physique, especially the large waist. There's no doubt he came in...

    Awesome Knee Warmup

    Wanted to put this up for everyone that has knee problems. Works really well to warm up the tendons instead of just the muscles and prep them for the load. I'm usually not a fan of this guy but this is a solid warmup for me and really helped my knee pain this week https://youtu.be/g5vOGrtHT9Y

    Autologous Blood Injection Experiment for Tendonopathy

    Hey guys, So I've been doing a ton of research on recovery methods for tendonopathy and I've came down to the two most successful methods being PRP injection and regular autologous blood injection therapy.
