    How does your insomnia manifest?

    Yes. It is a natural source of lovastatin....which is why it works for cholesterol reduction. I was. Ubiquinol.

    Back & Bis Deads, Heavy Scott Curls, Landmine Rows, Cable-Rope Curls So I had been experimenting with a Red Yeast Rice product that contained about 8mg of Monacolin K, AKA lovastatin per serving and it made my legs/knees and biceps (oddly) so sore, I felt like I had aged about 25 years...this is less than half of the typical starting dose of Mevacor. It took me a couple of weeks to finally figure out what was going on but I am really surprised by how strong and pronounced the effect was....I was really wondering if I was going to be able to keep lifting my knees, hamstrings and quads hurt so bad. The pain has completely resolved since stopping the supplement.

    What you really want to work on is your sternocleidomastoid muscles....

    Resurrection of Blu

    Out of curiosity, you don't find it at all restrictive to be doing stuff like DL and squats in trainers and a hoodie? I'm assuming you are wearing shorts, tee shirt etc. under all that...there was a guy who used to work out at my gym dressed like that in all kinds of weather...didn't matter how hot or cold, he was dressed like Sylvester Stallone out for a run in Rocky II

    Consumption of fish and O-3 fatty acids and mortality risk

    Does it strike you as odd that dozens of studies using a wide variety of doses of cheap, generic fish oil failed to show any protective effect but the prescription version of fish oil appears to be over the moon effective?

    I was....270 as I recall.

    Normal Testosterone levels by age

    When I first went on TRT, we overshot using a topical product and my levels were up around 1300 at my first blood draw...it felt absolutely electric to me...

    It is, in fact, integral to my bracing strategy.

    Consumption of fish and O-3 fatty acids and mortality risk

    Possibly. But if you go through the clinical data yourself, you find that Cochrane's review is pretty spot on...most of the fish oil studies yield these kind of results: source source

    Consumption of fish and O-3 fatty acids and mortality risk

    So what do we make of this recent Cochrane Review then?

    Sorry....I just kind of use the Force when I lift and I don't apply 10% of the exercise science planning that the rest of you guys do...I do deads and squats every week so for leg day, I just fill in other stuff....seems to work okay... But I appreciate the input...I can probably do better if I put some actual science into my workout planning.
