    I want gains in mass mostly. But not inflated muscles, don't want to look like a stump. Also my athletic performance does matter to me alot I dont want to loose agility speed etc. So I guess A works for me. But three days off a week seems excessive, and I hate not touching a specific muscle group for longer than three days. And yes imI using pure dumbbell, im told they provide better strength.

    I went to Turkey and got a hair transplant. The guidelines include the advice to not exercise for a full two weeks after the procedure, which is frustrating. I have another week to go.

    Good questions. I hope that these responses will be informative.

    1) I don't associate my beard with my hair. They're separate things. I can have or not have both independently of the other. Right now, beards are fashionable and so I sport a thick beard cut to about 0.5 guard, which I would do regardless of the amount of hairs that i have atop my head.

    2) Different men will be differently impacted by balding. You know what's nearly never happened? A man with hair completely shaving his head. A lot of men buzz, but that's different, a 1-guard and a 0-guard are different. In your case, you probably took one step back and three steps forward, those glutes that you got from deadlifting 700 lbs more than make up for the rest ;-)

    3) I did this for me ... . I like having a Jewfro. In terms of the chicks, the absolute best thing that I could do is to stop eating so much when traveling, that really dwarfs everything else that I could do, in my best modesty informed opinion.

    Edited for typos.

    That line manages to simultaneously seem both crude and wise.

    I was really really depressed in my first years of balding. Freaking 18 and balding? That aint cool. But now I realize that I would have never cut my full head of hair and that I wouldve never had that Dwayne Johnson charisma thing going. I thought about the transplant for a while, my parent even offered to pay for it because I was seriously depressed. All in all, I think Im happy I never went for it.

    Were you just thinning and wanted it thicker ? Or did you make the crazy jump from full on horseshoe to fro?

    I dont know what the heck inflated muscle means, so I cant help with this one :laugh:

    If you choose A, which movements would you be prioritizing? Are you familiar enough with barbell training? Maybe picking up a few lifting classes around the movements would be greatly beneficial.

    Otherwise, I currently run a four day split, but during the winter months I run a five day split. The number of days on and off doesnt really matter, what matters is if you hit your MRV (Maximum recoverable volume.) Depending on age, weight, level, steroids and what not, your volume can vary from about 10 sets to 40 depending on the muscle.

    There aren't enough donor hairs to go from full horseshoe to Jewfro. What they did was a slight lowering of the hairline and increases density behind it, and a tiny bit if increased density at the crown, 2750 grafts total.

    So I'm about 6'1 and creeping up to 220. I carry most of my weight in my torso. I'd like to be under 200 with a bit of tone. 190-195 I'm guessing would be ideal.

    What am I do?

    I'm 6'2ish and just got back down to sub 200 after hovering around 220 for the winter months. Took about 4 weeks of eating better and making sure I was getting in a good amount of compound weight lifting sets/week. Intermittent fasting works very well for me and IMO, speeds up the weight loss, but I wouldn't say it's necessary. Keeping your protein intake relatively high should also help with the weight loss and maintaining any muscle you have while on calorie deficit.

    It can be hard to get going, but if you do it right you can see results every day and that makes keeping up the effort much easier.

    How about you stop screwing around and realize the potential you have and put up 100 pounds on that sickly body of yours? Thank you.

    Non troll post would actually be to either a) more intensity b) less calories.

    No other way around it.

    I have very thick hair and beard, after my kid was born I let both grow for ~6 months and ended up with a huge afro and mountain man beard. Shaved the beard off completely and tried to slick my hair back, and once the beard came in a little I looked pretty good actually. But with the summer heat/humidity I can't slick my hair back at all so I shaved it off, now I have a shaved head (used a 1 on the clipper) and long beard since I haven't cut it since May. I get a lot of compliments, so I think this is a good look.

    I had some aggressive goals to get up to squatting 3 plates 5x5 3x a week by July, but ended up scrapping that at around 265 lbs because I started to absolutely hate workouts, it was just way too much and too aggressive. I dropped my squat work weight down to 135lbs and worked on going back to where I was, and didn't get too down on myself if I missed a workout or skipped one cause I felt injured or something. I also stopped taking creatine. I dropped 10 lbs and I think I am looking pretty good now. Lighter weights keeps me going back to the gym more often and less likely to skip a day, cause I can finish my workout in ~1 hour. Before, the heavier squats were leading to 2-3 minutes rest between sets, so including warmups and all that, my squat work would take 30 minutes alone. Knees feel good, shoulder seems to FINALLY be feeling better. Getting more and more "wtf??" comments from coworkers/friends because I got "all of a sudden jacked." Good feelings!

    I really, really, really want to start some martial art but I can't decide on which one Id rather do. Judo, JiuJitsu, boxing, kickboxing are all interesting to me. I can't take a hit because it will make me even more of a vegetable so I wonder if grappling could be too rough for my head, and then boxing and kickboxing would be only striking practice and this sounds pretty sad after a while...

    Depends what your goal is really. I did boxing for a long time and it is a great, great workout. But to me, that's all it really was, just a way to stay in shape. Striking is part of it, but it's more about foot movement, coordination, cardio, balance, etc... I was not boxing competitively and never hit hard or got hit hard sparring besides a few accidents. Boxed at the gym in St-Henri.

    Yeah, thats what Im saying. I want to actually practice the sport. I dont just want to strike and move around. A good part of my motivation usually comes from either chasing a goal or seeing tangible results.. just striking and running around a ring wont give me that.

    I'd consider wrestling - the real kind. I can't think of any contact sport better for overall musculature, strength and symmetry.

    I have little to no interest in the "fitness" side of martial arts, Im already way beyond what some would call "fit", I really just want to get good at something else, branching out and while Im really not someone aggressive or anything, I feel like I could be good at it and also really like it.

    I mostly miss the feeling of letting go and just becoming someone else like I used to when I played football. I get a lot of that while lifting weights for sure, but I have some time left on my hands to be good at something else.
