    Just go on pof and **** a whale or something. I don't get why losing your virginity is such a big deal. No one cares unless you're 15 and still at school. Fact is you're gonna be **** at sex until you have a lot of experience, having sex once will be useless so if you think losing it will give you more confidence you're wrong. You're still gonna disappoint every girl you ****. If anything it'll make your life worse, you'll feel how heavenly a warm wet ***** feels wrapped round your **** and let's be honest you can't get laid now so it'll lead to frustration.

    I'd rather just fap

    Anyway my forearms get really painful when doing wide grip curls. It's a very specific spot in both forearms hard to explain where exactly. It feels like a bruise if I poke the area, but goes away after a while. I'm guessing it's just some sort of pump? But worried it might be my form although I don't understand how I can **** my form up curling :/

    Instead of curling at the wrist aswell, just let the wrists bend back slightly.

    I'd assume cooked. I can't see boiling pasta in water making a difference anyway?

    Edit - just realised you were on about the weight. I dunno then.

    Is there any benefit to using a barbell for chest over dumbbells? I very much prefer dumbbells and will continue to use them over barbells unless there's anything fundamentally wrong with that?

    That will be cooked weight I'd imagine, looking at the macros. I always do my measurements before cooking.

    Dumbells for chest are probably going to be better from a pure hypertrophy point of view.

    thanks guys figured as much.

    @smudger i would agree with jdsm about the dumbells being better for hypertrophy. The way alot of people bench they don't really use/contract the chest muscle properly where as with dumbells the act of pushing them inwards towards each other helps target the chest more.
    CAN'T WAIT TO BENCH!

    ^

    Yup. A lot of the issues people have when barbell benching and struggling to build a good chest is more form related, though. 90% of average trainees can't seem to bench for ****; they underestimate how technical it actually is!

    But one of the benefits of the dumbells is the fact that you can actually get a (and I HATE saying this, as it sounds so bro-sciency) deeper stretch, or as I'd rather say, greater range of motion.

    I hate barbell benching tbh. I know its my form but it's all shoulders. I've tried wider grip, elbows in different positions and it still feels ****. For my goals, and the fact this is just a hobby, I'm gonna stick with dbs as I actually enjoy it.

    Here's another question that's been bugging me. How much protein can your average person actually synthesise in 24hrs? I know it will vary greatly from person to person so I'm gonna predict the answer is "how long is a piece of string?" but I'm just curious.
    Also what's this about protein synthesis only occurring in a muscle 48hrs after damage? What's the relationship between protein synthesis and DOMS? If protein synthesis only occurs up to 48hrs, how is the muscle repairing if it still hurts 72hrs after lifting?
