  1. https://tdeecalculator.net/#metric I ran some quick numbers for you at an estimated BF% and came out with: 2,625 cal based on 197g protein, 102g fat, 230g carbs. This would put you at around maintenance calls. Just in my opionion given your BF%, you should be able to add some solid muscle at the above without adding any/or very lit additional fat my man.
  2. Copy and paste, original article by: Linda Carroll Men who consume fish oil supplements, which are high in omega-3 fatty acids, might get a boost in fertility, a new study suggests. After examining data from nearly 1,700 young men, researchers determined that fish oil supplement consumption was associated with a higher sperm count, larger testes and improved levels of hormones that contribute to male fertility, according to the report published in JAMA Network Open. While all men could benefit from adding omega-3 fatty acids to their diets, the biggest impact would be in those with poor sperm quality, said study co-author Tina Kold Jensen, a professor at Rigshospitalet and the University of Southern Denmark, in Odense. That's because these types of fatty acids are essential to fertility, Jensen said in an email. "The composition of the sperm cell membrane with rich fatty acid content is critical for proper sperm function," Jensen explained. "The sperm cell membrane plays a critical role in the key fertilization events. Omega-3 in the sperm membrane increases as the sperm matures and it cannot be synthesized . . . in humans and needs to come from diet." To explore the possibility that fish oil and other nutrients might impact male fertility, Jensen and her colleagues approached men between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2017, who were undergoing physical exams as part of Denmark's military conscription procedures. The men were invited to participate in a study of testicular function and those who signed on were given an appointment for an examination and compensated with 500 Danish krone ($74.23). During their appointments, the men filled out a questionnaire, underwent a physical exam, delivered a semen sample and had blood drawn. They were asked about diet, vitamins or dietary supplements, lifestyle and health issues, and specifically about testicular health issues, such as inguinal hernias, and about sexually-transmitted diseases. The men were also asked about alcohol consumption, tobacco and marijuana use, and whether their mothers had smoked during pregnancy. When Jensen and her colleagues analyzed their data, they found that men who had consumed fish oil supplements on fewer than 60 days in the past three months had semen volume that was 0.38 mL higher than those who took no supplements. Men who consumed fish oil on 60 or more days during that period had semen volume that was 0.64 mL higher than men not using the supplements. Similarly, compared to those who did not take supplements, testicular size in men who consumed fish oil on fewer than 60 days was 0.8 mL larger and among those who consumed it for 60 days or more it was 1.5 mL larger. Men who consumed fish oil also had higher numbers of sperm than those who did not take the supplements. In addition, they had higher percentages of sperm that swam straight ahead, as opposed to in circles, for example, and that had healthier shapes overall. The new study is interesting since it looked at men from the general population who were young and healthy, said Albert Salas-Huetos, a researcher in the urology, andrology and IVF unit at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, who wrote an editorial accompanying the new study. "Because it's an observational study you can't say that there is a causal relationship between fish oil supplements and testicular function," Salas-Huetos said. "But it's a good starting point that might (spur) others to do a well-designed randomized controlled trial." Until such a study is done, no recommendations can be made about fish oil and fertility, Salas-Huetos said.
  3. His game plan was to drive to the bank after the fight and cash his check + "loss bonus" I think he checked out as soon as he got the...check.
  4. Watch it end up being a 45 second repeat of Aldo, lol. I dont know if I would be happy or sad. To be honest, I would like to see MG take a big beating for 3-4 rounds but come out with the W in the end to keep the show going. If he loses, pretty sure its over...
  5. I may be mistaken, but was this company not selling fake or under dosed raws? Just wondering if you had any problems with them as my info may be really outdated and completely wrong. Correct. Its an "illegal distribution ban" which was always there, but now they are just beefing it up (pun intended) to look good ahead of the Olympics. All government and licensed manufactures are still operating. Same as any country. And you know the PRC has some special projects for their Athletes lol.
  6. Finished up the Nutrend product so I just picked up some ANS Performance Prophecy. See how it goes. A little sad that there is no creatine or beet root in there though lol. 400mg of caffeine might be a little rough.

    Business update

    A big push of the like button just for using the word "clientele ". I think this will be a common move we will see a lot of over the next month or so and everyone out there should fully understand...in theory.
  8. Who? How? What Round? Were is your money on this one? I feel like Dana is really just trying to give MG a off the bench warm up fight to get the rust off and hype up "the best I have ever been" etc etc. But Cowbow can take a beating, throw, and he has fuk all to lose. He is slow out of the gate though. So...
  9. I believe they are still active, but not on the domestic side. According to their service department, they are still in operation and have no plans to stop due to the "new ban" which is not so new. I guess they have all their paper work and "extras" in order. That said, domestic supply has a lot of advantages.
  10. I see what you did there...lol I finally got around to watching this. Talk about cherry picked information and studies. Man, I really need to start eating me some beets.
  11. Alright, lets see those resolutions for those that do them. Physical: To hit 15% bodyfat, hold it within +/- 1 to 2 % while getting my bodyweight up to around 220 to 230 w/ the most improvement focused on my legs and overall strength. Mental: To sleep better, get my HSK LV4, and somehow snag a raise. Fun: A few places I would like to visit this year, mainly Australia or Taiwan. Also get a solid week of cottage time in up North. Bonus: Finally get the wife knocked up and have a happy and healthy little one.
  12. Amazon US links for decently priced. In theory. Just to bump this up in support of liver health. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XL4QJR1/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A8QGBKD2DMVE0&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XJZBXJM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A8QGBKD2DMVE0&psc=1
