Re: Let's Talk About Theobromine - that means Chocolate.

It is my understanding that 99% chocolate is not something to be consumed on its own; rather, to appreciate the flavor, one starts out with a bit of 70%, and then a bit of 80% (or whatever), and then takes a small bite of 99%. Too much work as far as I'm concerned. Well yes, I was eating a bit of 7...

Re: Eating Correctly and Compound exercises.

Well, I am fairly young (teenager) and I have a -very- quick metabolism, so I don't think I'll need to worry about putting on fat. Considering this, it would be viable to have a fair amount of fat to use as energy, right?

3. Pullup/chinup, barbell/db row, military press, hamstring curl, seated/cable row - and variations of all those.


how exactly do you do barbell rows? I'll look it up, already doing dumbell ones and cable ones.

Re: How to "buff" up my arms

Helped me develop strength and size I spend approximately 10 to 15 minutes on biceps 3 times a week, and noticed a large change when I switched from doing chin ups and curls to just curls. :) Just saying what I encountered from personal experience. What other muscles are used in chin ups, by the way?

Re: Favorite piece of classical music

La Campanella - I prefer the Liszt version, but the original by Pagaini is very good also.

Big fan of 'Fantasie Impromptu' by Chopin and 'Islamey' by Balakirev as well, these 3 are probably my top 3 favourite works.

Oh, and I think Piano Concerto No.2 by Saint-Saens is particularly excellent.
