  1. It's all about proportions - 5'8" at 190# looks IMMENSE; 6'2" at 190# looks lanky. To get more impressive looking proportionately, at 6'3" you need to weigh significantly more than someone even 5'10" , for example. I mention 5'10" because it's just about the "perfect" bodybuilding proportion size - 5'10" and 180# is damned impressive!
  2. Hmmm.... I'm going to guess that I was on the original Forum by 2005. I've been on this iteration since the first - April 17th 2014!
  3. I just came across this story today. I can't believe that I'm not paying money to enjoy writing of this quality! The technical details - about cop squads, military and medical protocols, the types of people who inhabit these places, and the jargon -- AMAZING! The research and extensive background in a large number of areas to assemble such a finely detailed, gripping, compelling story, boggles the mind. The subtlety of the emotion between John and Gabriel, the short glimpses of John's initial fears of entering the domain of "the big men" in the weight room, the hidden menace in Dwight's "helping" with the weight bar as he pushes it into John's chest --- simply superlative writing! Thank you for the story thus far!
  4. Having gone through my own "outgrowing my bullies" experience, I have to admit that that DOES make it easier to put the agita of the past to rest. I feel like I've matured/evolved/ grown from my skinny weak awkward and geeky adolescent years into a mature male. That's a big thing in favor of bodybuilding and exercise in general - the strength and competencies you develop do a great deal to help your self confidence, as well as your physical being. Strength training and other life experiences in overcoming adversity did a lot to make me the man I am today. I totally agree with BigSteve6ft3's point about "that which does not kill us, makes us stronger".* *Note: the quotation is paraphrased from Nietsche. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Nietzsche He was a proponent of the super man. More to the point of this thread about "toxic masculinity", he also said, "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."
  5. I LOVE the dialog - ======================== Dave turned around to look at his boyfriend. Then back at me. Then back at his boyfriend. “You’re hotter,” he said to Luke. He went over to his Luke and wrapped his arm around his waist. “I got distracted by the new and shiny.” Luke didn’t break the embrace but did pull away a little. “Forgive me?” Dave said and kissed Luke’s neck. Luke blushed a bright scarlet and pushed him away. “Alright, alright. Just keep your tongue in your head.” Dave looked back at me. “But there are so many new places to put it.” ====================== Excellent writing! I sometimes wonder (am pretty sure) whether we have professional writers in this group. The way the dialog flows, the effortless movement of the plot, the casual descriptions of muscle and growth that don't seem shoehorned into the text.....It's all good!
  6. Thanks for the follow!

    Great muscle growth descriptions! Also, the set up in the road side rest stop, late at night. Everyone can relate to the "Icky" feeling of dropping your shirt into some puddle on the floor. Usually it doesn't turn out this way! Interesting little interlude at the end where the narrator ruminated on how his actions have drastically altered other's lives. Is it for the better, or will it be for worse? Time will tell. Good writing style, Garrix! Your stories always flow well and also capture the thinking of the characters. They're very relateable.
  8. You're talking about this, right? Here's what the Russian translates to in English: alekseylesukov Today, for the first time in Russia, proton MRI tests have been carried out to study muscle metabolites. Studies were conducted on the basis of the Institute of Human Brain. N.P. Bekhtereva RAS. The goal is to develop a non-invasive method for analyzing cellular metabolites and the ergogenic potential of chemical compounds used in sports. The experiment was completed: a clear change in the pattern of metabolic shifts against the background of taking the tested samples (biochemical regulators of energy metabolism). The discoverers of this method are waiting for a series of experiments and new discoveries. And we have new opportunities and the benefits of the work of scientists in the future! Thanks for the new discoveries! P.S. Google Translate makes it all possible: https://translate.google.com/
  9. *Groan* A horrible, corny, but very funny PUN worth of moi. I think you've gotten to the MEAT of the (t)issue! Perhaps our pec-tiferous hero is a mere 300 pound, 60-inch pec shelf shadow of his former self! Or maybe we're making this all up! Muscledrain: A tip of the punster's cap to you!

  13. I started watching this the other night and got distracted. I'll have to go back to it. FWIW - another Netflix show, "Vexed" (British cop comedy about a male and a female cop who are constantly arguing) - not much muscle growth, the male lead, Toby Stevens, is handsome and very funny! https://www.pinterest.es/pin/183943966007459009/?amp_client_id=CLIENT_ID(_)&mweb_unauth_id={{default.session}} He was in "Die another Day" "Lost in Space" and a number of British and American shows. He's the son of Maggie Smith (Harry Potter's Prof. McGonnigle, "Prime of Miss Jean Brodie", Mother Superior in "Sister Act") https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0827170/
  14. I live in the MD 'burbs. I work out at a gym downtown and at Evolution Forum.
