    • Free Weights vs. Machines: Quick Breakdown of the Pros & Cons
      There's been debate about whether free weights or machines are best when it comes to working out at the gym. Instead of debating it, let's just take a look at the pros and cons of each, and which option may be best for you.

      We'll be leaving out cable machines since those have aspects of both (cables are great to use though, in case you wanted an opinion).

    • Whey vs. Casein for Building Muscle
      Many athletes, and nearly all bodybuilders, supplement with some type of protein powder. Getting all of your macronutrients solely from food (your diet) isn't the easiest thing to do when you have and are building considerable muscle mass. Sometimes you go over your daily calorie limit trying to get enough protein, or maybe you end up taking in too much fat.

    • Post in Which supplements do you take — if any?
      I think a lot of this is lost on the current folks here. It's strange that everyone keeps bringing up "natural" as if vitamins and supplements are unnatural. Vitamins are essential to us, there's no going around it; if you get your vitamin D from, say, almond milk, you're supplementing vitamin D from that milk, because it was never there to begin with. We have to put those vitamins into the milk. It's what we call fortified foods. I speak a little bit about that here:

      When I mention creatine, it is quite natural. We consume creatine through meats, and we produce it (creatinine) in our bodies. This is true of many of the various supplements out there.

      To first dispel the notion that these things aren't natural, we should define what natural means:

    • What's the Difference Between Vitamins and Supplements?
      The difference can be confusing for the mere fact that you supplement your diet by taking vitamins, or you take supplements that contain vitamins. While the two like to intertwine, there is a small difference between what they are.

    • At what age did you seriously start working out and working on your body? High School, adulthood? Sadly I didn't start working out until I was an adult, and even now I have let myself go a bit and had to get back into it.
    • Do you use shakes and what not before or after you workout? Should I only use them after I workout? I don't have a lot of experience with protein or the shakes, so I am not sure where I should be putting my focus. 
    • I recently had surgery on my knee for a torn ACL, and I was wondering if any of you had experience with getting back in shape after a surgery. Did you push too hard? Could you have done things a little different? How long did you wait before you got back into the swing of things?
    • I don't usually listen to rap. I am a country and alternative rock man myself. Once in a while I'll throw in some classic rock. I like Luke Combs, Deirks Bentley, Queen,  Rise Against, quite a variety lol
    • This was a very helpful topic. I have not been able to fill out my chest like I would like as well. With summer coming up, I want to really get everything looking it's best. I was always skinny growing up, so I was not able to look how I wanted. But now as an adult that controls my own workouts and diets, there is really no excuse. Gonna try some of the things suggested here and see how it goes.
