I'm working on my back but I still have winging scapula. Will pull-ups be able to fix that?

yogurt and nuts.

Red Bull might give you wings, but yogurt gives you bigger cojones. Male mice that ate a diet supplemented with yogurt grew larger testicles. The change was dramatic enough to give them a distinctive “mouse swagger” as they compensated for their greater endowment.

The study, by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was intended to examine the effects of yogurt on obesity. Previous research had shown that yogurt could prevent age-related weight gain.

Researchers fed one group of mice a junk food diet—high in fat, and low in fiber and nutrients. A second group ate standard mouse food. One half of each group also received vanilla-flavored yogurt.

At the end of the study, the testicles of the mice that ate yogurt were five percent heavier than those of the standard-diet group, and 15 percent heavier than the junk food group.

These changes were not just superficial. Yogurt-eating mice inseminated their partners faster and produced more offspring. Female mice also benefitted from eating yogurt, with larger litters and more successful weaning of their pups.

Researchers think that probiotic microbes found in yogurt helped make the mice slimmer and healthier, which encouraged growth of the testicles.

Yogurt isn’t just for mice, though. Other researchers are looking at the benefits of yogurt for semen quality in men. Keep that in mind next time your girlfriend offers you yogurt for lunch.

so guys i really need to get in shape but really not a fan of the gym

like i run a mile a day with the occasional rest day and will probably up that to two miles shortly but its not really enough to compensate for my shitty diet

how effective is swimming as a weight loss/fitness thing? there's a pool about two minutes walk from me but it's kinda expensive but willing to pay to get fitter

also heard green tea is good any of you can confirm this?

I've been swimming since I was 5 and it's kept me in shape, if you get into it it would most definitely help you with your fitness and if you kept at it there's a good chance you'd lose some weight as well. Diet's important but it's a slow process. I eat some shit but at the end of the day it's about moderation and not over-doing it.

As for green tea I'm really not sure, anything is a super food these days so I'd take it with a pinch of salt.

Yeah i figured it was a good idea. Never really swum as much as i'd have liked to because of asthma but i do enjoy it. Diet should improve anyway as I'm trying to reduce my food budget and look at healthier and cheaper alternatives to most things.

Thanks for the help man

i think there's some evidence supporting the health claims about tea preventing cancer and cardiovascular disease. white tea is sometimes claimed to be most healthy variety as it has the highest amount of polyphenols. diet is really about the big picture tho. minimizing sugar and processed food consumption and substituting them with a wide variety of whole foods would be a really good start but probably not inexpensive

variety is also important with regard to exercise, as sticking to only one thing might cause imbalances and eventually injury. i suppose swimming, calisthenics and running at varying lengths and intensities will get you fit, toned and sort of sporty looking but it won't give you like mass and shit

i've come across a few sources claiming that low intensity steady state cardio might actually be bad for your health, as it apparently might increase insulin resistance and visceral fat storage. one doctor or researcher talking about metabolic syndrome mentioned it and cited hormonal changes as the cause

any of you know more about this

there are many man made dangerous combinations of otherwise safe substances. so much so that we really have no clue how the filler in anti histamine tabs reacts with the enforced hydrogenation molecules added to mac fries 6 months before they are consumed.

world's fucked.

if you are carrying a 4 stone bag of green tea then you will be 4 stone heavier

go figure chuck

and if you really want to get scientific about it, green tea is known to help flush toxins from your system as well as making you piss a lot

so if either of them can happen without weight loss being involved then sure

I walk that pretty much every day. Some days a lot more. I don't have a car so I have to walk to bus stops and a lot of places I go I have to walk to get to. Now you'll say, 'Ha! He doesn't have a car! What a poor piece of shit!' No, I'm reducing my footprint. I'm saving the earth. You should try saving the earth sometime instead of raping it you filthy pig.

I also like walking in the middle of the night. I am like a panther, moving by night. Between 11-6 are my favorite hours. I'll go lots of places at night time.

Don't eat vegetables, they will kill you.

You should however eat fruits, such as strawberries and blackberries, which are high in omega-3s which I just cannot say enough about.

love swimming so much.
gonna concentrate on strength; free weights, and bodyweight exercises [want to be able to do 5 pull ups and a handstand by end of august]; and swimming in next few months.
