Re: The new Ryan Hall

With my measly 2-3 hours/week of strength and not adding in tons of protein rich food, I can see muscles that I didn't know were there. I don't think it's so far fetched that someone who is dedicated and puts in hours of training each day could realistically make a transformation in that short time...

Re: The new Ryan Hall

i'm not surprised that someone could gain that much muscle, but i am surprised that someone with chronically low testosterone levels could gain that quickly. the january 2016 article said, "Supplemental testosterone is a banned substance, but Hall would be eligible for a medical waiver if he wa...

Re: The new Ryan Hall

I can't help but wonder... He quit professional running because he couldn't train hard because of chronically low testosterone. Then in four months he makes these pretty dramatic body transformations? Is that normal to happen so quickly? I would hope that all he's taking is medically approved hormo...

Interesting. I didn't know that. Not really a laughing matter.

I think it's a case of SA law being different than Canadian law. Even if it was an intruder, it didn't matter. In Canada, you could claim self-defence (I didn't know it was her, I thought it was a burglar!), whereas in SA you can't. yes, it does seem to be different. that said, i'm not sure you wou...
