Well, there's the original flavor which is better than what I remember it to be 20 years ago or so. Orange, Blue Frost, Fruit Punch, are flavors I've had. I'm not sure if there's more.
I just went to www.gatorade.com and it's got a lot of info about their products and uses, history and the whole works. I've gotten bottled Propel and its pretty good for something different. I have heard that a lot of the lemon-lime type sports drinks are hard on your tooth enamel, but I don't how valid that is.

ok, thanks both of you :)

i've been working out for a month and a half now, mainly focusing on back, shoulders and chest. i find hammerfall to be great to listen to when working out or any power metal for that matter, death metal just doesnt work for me when im working out

Seriously. Get under the bar.

L,B'XXX 2005-08-31 19:44

i can't believe one of those wasn't a boob. That blanc mange looked good though. Ummm, pudding.

far_beyond_sane 2005-08-31 19:54

I never thought I'd see the word 'kettlebell' on MTabs. Kettlebells are fun. I have two. They are heavy.

For those of you arguing about Gatorade, suffice to say it is not necessary. I don't like it.

The point, old woman, is that the man who is scared of the big nasty weighty-bars was GAY. Explain to me how that could possibly include any kind of breast, unless it was hairy man-breast.

kin 2005-08-31 20:14

I masturbate.

The Execrator 2005-08-31 20:38

Haha. Gatorade is gay. I only drink water when I work out.

you can roll the bar off your chest to your stomach,sit up,transfer it to the middle of the bench,take a breather,transfer it to the stand<balance it on the bench and turn around it then lift it obviously>. unless you're pushing up 300 pounds or something benching without a spotter is ok in my book, its a pain in the ass<when you fuck up and gotta roll it down> but it wont kill you, i do this time to time coz the bench i use is my roomates who can lift alot more than i can and i wont realize im benching like 140-150, then im dough rolling my entire body with it

newHELLonEARTH 2005-08-31 21:07

i need to get excercising... i wont go to a gym cause im underage unless i take a some odd week training course and i dont have the time with that between school and doing nothing (im serious haha i need me time) but i will try to excercise at home.. and i donno why but i think queen would work for me to listen to.. fuck.. i need to get in shape. i just got back from eating treats left right and center and ice-cream almost every night from a dairy bar (giant banana splits and chocolate brownie ice-cream things) all camping.. so yeah im fucked for energy:p

Hah, my friend almost killed himself trying to do that. He was benching at like 2 in the morning, so no one could spot him, he went for a 10th rep, couldnt do it. He tried rolling it down to his stomach and putting it down and it flung up and just missed his head, hah.

KevC 2005-08-31 21:59

hey trans i have a spin problem as well, one of the disks in my spine are deteriorating at a unusual speed for my age, so i cant do exercises such as squats and rows, where the weights go above my head or bend my back, it sucks

Transient 2005-08-31 22:22

yeah but htat doesnt mean you cant get your exercise and you cant get into shape. my problem was ah ell of a lot worse than spinal deterioration ( i actually had arthritis in my spine that was fixed after my surgery, coincidental and convenient)

keep doing what you need to do day to day and dont let it slow you down

Trans told me that you have a blood pressure problem of some sort.

I would recommend doing sets of 1 or 2. Do a rep or two, walk around for ten seconds, repeat. I say this because the squat is your BEST excercise. If you can perform the squat, then it should be at the center of your weightlifting regimen. The testosterone peak after performing a squat is greater than that of any other excercise.

And about the kettle thing, to me I think that would help distribute the resistance of the weight more effectively across the muscle group experiencing the resistance, which this is what a cable system at your local gym achieves. But, it would be free weights, which will be more effective, for obvious reasons. So all in all it sounds good.

I would'nt down it.

Transient 2005-08-31 22:49

i didnt mean he has a consistent BP problem i just meant the problem was what he described already

Rapture 2005-08-31 23:11

You all make me giggle.

I have access to a free gym every day with no self motivation required... im in weight training at school. Since im about 3 times bigger than anyone else in there, the coach lets me do my own thing.

Music definitely helps. If you're going to lift something heavy, skip to your favorite part of a good song. It helps.

Transient 2005-09-01 08:51

without a doubt, thats how i get at least 25% of my energy at the gym, music just makes me want to work hard. like, amon amarth - death in fire. theres some heavy lifting music. or devourment

humancorpse 2005-09-01 09:17

Aggressive music = aggressive me, which means extra energy. I especially go crazy when i hear some furious vocals :smash:

Young guy, powers' has never struck me as gay. I think he was the one that said that. And it seemed a bit sarcastic to me. And why would a bar equate to a chicky more than a boob? Same difference to me.

Since I commented about the Gatorade I'll say something about that, too. I like it. Lots of people do. It's not necessary, but if it works or helps someone, that's fine. It does give me more energy and it might someone else. You use suppliments so you may be fine without it.

low-tech 2005-09-01 12:04

i just looked up those kettlebell things, they look cool, i'll probably get a pair sometime. i didnt know they were actual weights. my roomate was telling me about them demonstrating with a propane tank, i thought it was all improvized lifting or something. i picture in my mind russian behemoths lifting kegs and railroad ties, oxyacetaline tanks in some soviet era dungeon.
