    3,5-diiodo-L-thyronine (T2)

    3,5-diiodo-L-thyronine increases resting metabolic rate and reduces body weight without undesirable side effects. Antonelli A1, Fallahi P, Ferrari SM, Di Domenicantonio A, Moreno M, Lanni A, Goglia F. Department of Internal Medicine, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy. alessandro.antonelli@med.unipi.it Abstract Recently, it was demonstrated that 3,5-diiodo-L-thyronine (T2) stimulates the resting metabolic rate (RMR), and reduces body-weight gain of rats receiving a high-fat diet. The aim of this study is to examine the effects of chronic T2 administration on basal metabolic rate and body weight in humans. Two euthyroid subjects volunteered to undergo T2 administration. Body weight, body mass index, blood pressure, heart rate, electrocardiogram, thyroid and liver ultrasonography, glycemia, total cholesterol, triglycerides, free T3 (FT3), free T4 (FT4), T2, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and RMR were evaluated at baseline and at the end of treatment. RMR increased significantly in each subject. After continuing the T2 treatment for a further 3 weeks (at 300 mcg/day), body weight was reduced significantly (p<0.05) (about 4 percent), while the serum levels of FT3, FT4 and TSH, were unchanged. No side effects were observed at the cardiac level in either subject. No significant change was observed in the same subjects taking placebo. PMID: 22217997 n=2 FASEB J. 2005 Sep;19(11):1552-4. Epub 2005 Jul 12. 3,5-diiodo-L-thyronine powerfully reduces adiposity in rats by increasing the burning of fats. Lanni A1, Moreno M, Lombardi A, de Lange P, Silvestri E, Ragni M, Farina P, Baccari GC, Fallahi P, Antonelli A, Goglia F. Dipartimento di Scienze della Vita, Seconda Università di Napoli, Caserta, Italy. antonia.lanni@unina2.it Abstract The effect of thyroid hormones on metabolism has long supported their potential as drugs to stimulate fat reduction, but the concomitant induction of a thyrotoxic state has greatly limited their use. Recent evidence suggests that 3,5-diiodo-L-thyronine (T2), a naturally occurring iodothyronine, stimulates metabolic rate via mechanisms involving the mitochondrial apparatus. We examined whether this effect would result in reduced energy storage. Here, we show that T2 administration to rats receiving a high-fat diet (HFD) reduces both adiposity and body weight gain without inducing thyrotoxicity. Rats receiving HFD + T2 showed (when compared with rats receiving HFD alone) a 13% lower body weight, a 42% higher liver fatty acid oxidation rate, appoximately 50% less fat mass, a complete disappearance of fat from the liver, and significant reductions in the serum triglyceride and cholesterol levels (-52% and -18%, respectively). Thyroid hormones and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) serum levels were not influenced by T2 administration. The biochemical mechanism underlying the effects of T2 on liver metabolism involves the carnitine palmitoyl-transferase system and mitochondrial uncoupling. If the results hold true for humans, pharmacological administration of T2 might serve to counteract the problems associated with overweight, such as accumulation of lipids in liver and serum, without inducing thyrotoxicity. However, the results reported here do not exclude deleterious effects of T2 on a longer time scale as well as do not show that T2 acts in the same way in humans. PMID: 16014396 n=rats

    Running Gait & Injury

    Running research: Heel-toe or toe-heel? December 12, 2019 Science News New research from La Trobe University suggests there is no evidence that changing a runner's strike pattern will help prevent injuries or give them a speed boost. In a bid to avoid shin splints, sore knees and other injuries, many runners have adopted a toe-to-heel trend, running on the balls of their feet. This is often encouraged by coaches and health professionals. However, in research out this week in Sports Medicine, La Trobe injury researcher and physiotherapist Dr Christian Barton found there is no evidence to suggest running on the front of your feet reduces injury risk or improves performance. "We analysed 53 studies which looked at the impact of forefoot, rearfoot and flatfoot running patterns on injury, running economy and running biomechanics," senior author of the study, Dr Barton said "Our comprehensive review suggests that telling someone to run on the ball of their foot instead of their heel may make them less efficient, at least in the short term. Additionally, there is no evidence either way on whether running on the balls of your feet reduces injury." Dr Barton said switching your running style shifts the body's loads but doesn't make them disappear. "Running toe-heel might help injuries at the knee, where loads are reduced. However, it may cause injuries to the feet and ankle, where loads are increased," Dr Barton said. "Put simply, when it comes to running style: If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Journal Reference: Laura M. Anderson, Daniel R. Bonanno, Harvi F. Hart, Christian J. Barton. What are the Benefits and Risks Associated with Changing Foot Strike Pattern During Running?

    Lancet. 2018 Aug 25;392(10148):637-649. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(18)31773-2. Epub 2018 Aug 16. Efficacy and safety of semaglutide compared with liraglutide and placebo for weight loss in patients with obesity: a randomised, double-blind, placebo and active controlled, dose-ranging, phase 2 trial. O'Neil PM1, Birkenfeld AL2, McGowan B3, Mosenzon O4, Pedersen SD5, Wharton S6, Carson CG7, Jepsen CH7, Kabisch M7, Wilding JPH8. Obesity and Endocrinology Research, Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK. Electronic address: j.p.h.wilding@liverpool.ac.uk. Abstract BACKGROUND: Obesity is a major public health issue, and new pharmaceuticals for weight management are needed. Therefore, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue semaglutide in comparison with liraglutide and a placebo in promoting weight loss. METHODS: We did a randomised, double-blind, placebo and active controlled, multicentre, dose-ranging, phase 2 trial. The study was done in eight countries involving 71 clinical sites. Eligible participants were adults (≥18 years) without diabetes and with a body-mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or more. We randomly assigned participants (6:1) to each active treatment group (ie, semaglutide [0·05 mg, 0·1 mg, 0·2 mg, 0·3 mg, or 0·4 mg; initiated at 0·05 mg per day and incrementally escalated every 4 weeks] or liraglutide [3·0 mg; initiated at 0·6 mg per day and escalated by 0·6 mg per week]) or matching placebo group (equal injection volume and escalation schedule to active treatment group) using a block size of 56. All treatment doses were delivered once-daily via subcutaneous injections. Participants and investigators were masked to the assigned study treatment but not the target dose. The primary endpoint was percentage weight loss at week 52. The primary analysis was done using intention-to-treat ANCOVA estimation with missing data derived from the placebo pool. This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT02453711. FINDINGS: Between Oct 1, 2015, and Feb 11, 2016, 957 individuals were randomly assigned (102-103 participants per active treatment group and 136 in the pooled placebo group). Mean baseline characteristics included age 47 years, bodyweight 111·5 kg, and BMI 39·3 kg/m2. Bodyweight data were available for 891 (93%) of 957 participants at week 52. Estimated mean weight loss was -2·3% for the placebo group versus -6·0% (0·05 mg), -8·6% (0·1 mg), -11·6% (0·2 mg), -11·2% (0·3 mg), and -13·8% (0·4 mg) for the semaglutide groups. All semaglutide groups versus placebo were significant (unadjusted p≤0·0010), and remained significant after adjustment for multiple testing (p≤0·0055). Mean bodyweight reductions for 0·2 mg or more of semaglutide versus liraglutide were all significant (-13·8% to -11·2% vs -7·8%). Estimated weight loss of 10% or more occurred in 10% of participants receiving placebo compared with 37-65% receiving 0·1 mg or more of semaglutide (p<0·0001 vs placebo). All semaglutide doses were generally well tolerated, with no new safety concerns. The most common adverse events were dose-related gastrointestinal symptoms, primarily nausea, as seen previously with GLP-1 receptor agonists. INTERPRETATION: In combination with dietary and physical activity counselling, semaglutide was well tolerated over 52 weeks and showed clinically relevant weight loss compared with placebo at all doses. PMID: 30122305 Weight loss of +10% in a year is hella impressive. This stuff is also now available as an oral formulation.

    No, you don't get it. You'd be at worst, petty bourgeoisie. But not even that since you're not part of the capitalist class who owns the means. That is generally reserved for owners who work beside labor. In reality, you're a prole just like me and everyone else here. If the revolution comes, we won't be executing people like you unless we get real, real far down the priority ladder (at least in my view leftism). But your love of rules bothers me but that's only on a personal level.

    One of the reasons that I think Red Hat isn't awful as a place to work is that when we have our inevitable yearly re-org, it's all done out in the open. There's some stuff that goes on under the cone of silence, no doubt, but a good majority of it happens in front of us and with us taking part in the project over the course of the re-org.

    Have you all never had that one manager who you had built a relationship with on mutual respect and trust and would lookout for your best interests? I have had a couple in my career who I owe a lot of my trajectory to, and perhaps I am wrong, but those were the best managers in my experience. There’s a time to be a corporate shill, and then there’s a time to care about people as people. I am not necessarily advising Construct to do this, but the tone of his post struck me as someone who has been in my shoes in the past, or has been a manager of mine at some point. I’m derailing your log so I will leave it at this - you seem like a good manager.

    Periodization Meta-analysis

    A pretty interesting/cool read on different periodization types, and periodization vs no periodization. https://www.strongerbyscience.com/periodization-data/ TL;DR: Periodization is about 15%-20% better than no periodization. Daily undulating periodization is slightly better than linear periodization. Pretty much all types of periodization (block, linear, undulating, etc) can be combined and are not mutually exclusive. None of the studies lasted longer than 32 weeks, so any advantages seen in one type vs another may become a wash out over an extended period of time.

I actually forgot to take my preworkout until after my first working set, so it's not impossible I could have hit more on my OHP. The tradeoff I guess was hitting good numbers on my CGBP and being able to do them all paused. I am very obviously feeling increased power from the A50 right now. I am a little shocked at how much I'm throwing around on the row, but I've learned since that the way the machine leverages the weight is not the same as a Nautilus. I call it the Nautilus because it looked exactly like the row I had back where I used to live, but a) it's a Hammer Strength, and b) it's notably lighter per weight loaded. Bodyweight is still at ~242 (technically 241.X but shh). I'm not sure how well I did my second set of hammer curls as I made sure to lock in my scapula during my first set and not heave the weight up, but I caught myself heaving a little during my third set, so it's possible my 2nd set had some body English. It kind of doesn't matter since it's an accessory, and well I'm on cycle, but I thought I'd note that anyways.

I'm officially up 8lbs to 242 from 233/235lbs, and instead of merely hitting my target I hit well above. I could theoretically bump up my max but I'll wait until next week to see how things feel. I think the rule is if I go above 2 reps I bump (at 2 it's optional), so I might have to wait for that.

I'm starting to feel really good control and aggression from the cycle. From memory strength doesn't really pick up until around the 2nd week, but there are generally obvious effects elsewhere, like the fact that I look fucking huge overnight even though my scale doesn't indicate a weight change. That could very well be a change in self-perception, which is a known effect of aas. I reupped my syringe and needles and even got some 1" to hit my quads. Those 1.5" are just too scary to go into my quad. I always feel like I am about to scrape bone with those. I'm not a huge fan of this batch of test because I think I must have added a pinch too much BA or BB, so I develop some PIP. I've read about a technique to dilute the gear with sterile USP oil. I'm thinking about giving it a shot if it's in the budget. For the time being, the left quad wasn't too bad and just caused me 24 hours of PIP (plus a little the day of). EDIT: forgot to mention I have been doing low back stretches and core activation work daily since the 17th, and as of today it's helped a lot. I will keep at it.

    3,5-diiodo-L-thyronine (T2)

    I can't attribute the overall outcomes to any one particular ingredient, but I used to love the original (is there a new version, even?) Alpha-T2, which was a mix I believe of rauwolscine and 3,5-T2 (and methyl-synephrine, which I know I don't respond at all to). It was quite a powerful product when combined with (fasted) cardio. The only thing I didn't like about the product is it would give me this symptom I can only describe as strong heart pump echoes the first few days or so. From memory, I remember that an advantage of 3,5-T2 over 3,3-T2 is that 3,5-T2 doesn't cause endogenous T4/T3 shutdown, or at least not in like a 4-8 week setting, whereas 3,3-T2 did.

    That escalated quickly. No company is perfect, but IMO it doesn't take much effort to be a decent place to work. Especially at large scale tech companies where the revenue per employee leaves plenty of margin for taking care of people. I'm ambivalent about the superficial perks like company parties, expensive off-site retreats, snack rooms stocked with junk food, ping pong tables, and the other perks that companies like to advertise. Just give me open communication, clear directives, market-rate pay, good health insurance, reasonable transparency, and an environment of mutual respect.

    This is tough. There are scenarios in which, as God and Sanction are suggesting, the personal blowback could be quite severe. I have always pushed my senior leadership to lift the cone of silence on restructurings asap and have tended to have corporate knowledge transfer + succession plans in place, but the cone generally has a nestedness, and that nestedness is sometimes there for very good reasons.

    This week was fucking hell. Just absolute ass. Long hours. Some yelling and dropping of the ball at work (by others, not by me). Missed meals. Missed gym sessions. Some sleep issues. Surprise bills. The girl I'm seeing coming down with something bad. Thank God nothing tragic happened. I was just really stressed out the whole time. It's like I can never get my average, baseline stress down. As I find an outlet, more stress piles on top of the usual. Ahhh!!! 😵 The good thing is that I had a really great day today, and I'm hoping it continues on this trajectory. I also made it into the gym, so here is what followed: 19/12/07 OHP A2S C2W3 OHP 95x10 115x8 135x5 165x2-3 added belt and wrist wraps 170x5 <-- RPE easy 160x5 150x11 <-- +3 reps, bumping max up again CGBP 235x11 225x11,9 <-- really fatigued.

That was really cool. But today's workout was really nice. My weight is sitting around 241, which to me is a reflection of some missed meals (unchanged, or 1lb lower, than Monday). I've eaten shit like McDonalds and fucking donuts this week to just keep up with calories. I wasn't able to, or decided not to, buy food this week, so I have been making due with just breakfast, protein shakes, cottage cheese, and a couple of salmon filets, which I already had purchased. No salads or chicken. Thankfully I was able to reup everything today, so I will be back on track.

    My doctor is very positive on it and he is a progressive one. When Memantine was promising, he helped me with it, right dose, tapering, etc. We've tried everything and when it came to talking about psilocybin, he wanted the data and supported me @STENDEC . So I think the science is there for CGRP.

    I've been going to the gym about twice a week. Haven't been great at logging it, though. Most recent trips: Friday, 29 November 2019: Bouldering: Light Pullups: Some Deadlift: 5 x 135, 225, 225, 225, 255 Sunday, 1 December 2019: Rowing machine: 5 minutes, moderate intensity Benchpress: 5 x 135, 155, 175, 185, 195, 205, 135 Felt good to lift slightly higher weights and add some cardio back. Unfortunately I'm paying for it today with a major crash. I can deal with the physical pain, but it's the brain fog that gets me.

    Periodization Meta-analysis

    Here is a recent paper which takes a critical look at periodization. https://journals.lww.com/acsm-msse/Abstract/publishahead/The_Basics_of_Training_for_Muscle_Size_and.96471.aspx The Basics of Training for Muscle Size and Strength The periodization of resistance exercise is often touted as the most effective strategy for optimizing muscle size and strength adaptations. This narrative persists despite a lack of experimental evidence to demonstrate its superiority. In addition, the general adaptation syndrome, which provides the theoretical framework underlying periodization, does not appear to provide a strong physiological rationale that periodization is necessary. Hans Selye conducted a series of rodent studies which used toxic stressors to facilitate the development of the general adaptation syndrome. To our knowledge, normal exercise in humans has never been shown to produce a general adaptation syndrome. We question whether there is any physiological rationale that a periodized training approach would facilitate greater adaptations compared to non-periodized approaches employing progressive overload. The purpose of this paper is to briefly review currently debated topics within strength and conditioning and provide some practical insight regarding the implications these re-evaluations of the literature may have for resistance exercise and periodization. In addition, we provide some suggestions for the continued advancement within the field of strength and conditioning.

    I haven't heard of the migraine research, but with chronic CH, psilocybin is the off-the-books magic, yes. I'm pretty sure that my bouts with it were atypical migraine, but the pain mirrored CH very well. I haven't had one in about 12 years. I am pretty sure I had a new baby at the time of my last cluster of headaches. They were horrible and could wake me from sleep. Every single night.

    Sanction lifted

    Most injuries on Smith machines comes from beginner trainees getting out of position and the aforementioned POM issue becomes the cause of the injury. I don't disagree with Ben insofar as it's not "the devil", and it can probably be used safely by some, but definitely not all.

    Is that a failure of the robots or the humans who designed and programed them?

    Sanction lifted

    Much appreciated. Now that mwarren is taking a sabbatical, the number of three letter acronyms on this board has reduced almost to a manageable level..

    You're Doing It Wrong

    I suspect from a neural recruitment perspective, the physics trumps the anatomical, but the anatomical is an important heuristic to work through in order to leverage the optimal physics solution.

    GF's "CS Goes Pubic" Log

    So last night I was visiting the girl I'm seeing, and in the midst of our time together I felt pain and saw large protrusion around my upper right abdominal wall around my ribs. It was soft. I suspect it was just an aggressive spasm that pulled a rib out, but it could be a hernia. I'm trying to be seen by a doc but the fuckers are taking their time turning around a call. Hopefully it's not a hernia. Either way, this doesn't bode too well for my lifting. Of course this happens now, too.
