The bodybuilding model is designed around, requires, steroids for significant hypertrophy. The neuroendocrine response of bodybuilding protocols is so blunted that without “exogenous hormonal therapy” little happens. The CrossFit protocol is designed to elicit a substantial neuroendocrine whollop and hence packs an anabolic punch that puts on impressive amounts of muscle though that is not our concern. Strength is. Natural bodybuilders (the natural ones that are not on steroids) never approach the mass that our ahtletes do. They don’t come close. Those athletes who train for function end up with better form than those who value form over function. This is one of the beautiful ironies of training.
Wow… flab is ugly so lets shoot down one terrible beauty ideal of women and put up another. Sorry but not all women can be ripped and sometime no amount of working out lifting or other wise ca fix that.
Speaking as a single mother with abdominal damage due to emergency c-section. I will never have a stomach with out “flab”. Glad to know that it will always classify me as ugly. Since I have nothing else to offer and only a female body counts as worth anything.
A woman gain any kind of strength is important but LRR you are just as bad as Hexjoe53
A 2011 ranking by . News & World Report, involving a panel of 22 experts, ranked the Paleo diet lowest of the 20 diets evaluated based on factors including health, weight-loss and ease of following. These results were repeated in the 2012 survey, in which the diet tied with the Dukan diet for the lowest ranking out of 25 diets; . News & World Report stated that their experts "took issue with the diet on every measure". However, one expert involved in the ranking stated that a "true Paleo diet might be a great option: very lean, pure meats, lots of wild plants. The modern approximations… are far from it." He added that "duplicating such a regimen in modern times would be difficult."
