1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Depending on what he wants to do, 6-8 reps to failure for building
    10-12 using extremely strict style for shaping.

    However the main focus is to MIX IT UP all the time so the muscles dont get too used to the routine.
    Muscles are blind, they dont know what you are lifting so tell your mate not to get to obsessed with what weight he`s lifting and look more to technique. You can make 80kg feel like 10kg if you adopt a really strict style and thats gotta be better for your joints!
    Diet, diet is about 80% of training.
    Whithout going into it too deeply the basic rule is lots of complex carbs leading up to before you train (EG pasta)
    Then immediately after he want to be cramming loads of protiens in him (Tuna, Chicken etc)
    Hope that helps.

    Working against your own body weight (EG situps/pullups) is great way of supplementing a weight training regime

    i allways do forced reps for bulking up . lift the most you can and nock out asmanny reps as you can by your self , the get your spot to take the tinyest bit of waight off when it starts to get too much and i allways do 6 sets of 10 .. and i sure some ones allredy put my other method for shapeing ..

    but ive noticed that some ways work for some people , some dont , its just how you get the best burn really

    Yeah, I'm working out. Working out why I'm so bloody fat.:D:D:D

    I can't believe it's the pear cider, the curries and the ice-cream:eek:

    Still, it's summer soon, if I get weaving on the turf wars, maybe some of that ultra low-fat rabbit meat will knock me into shape. Then again, if I was a gambling man, I'd probably put my money on Santa coming round at Xmas to find there's still a fat b*stard living at my place:lol:
