Which is the one that can be used as a metaphor for the posterior chain/glutes of the brain? It’s whatever one that one is.

well firstly, thank you very much for the shout out! I don’t really feel I deserve this as there’s guys on the forum with much bigger and stronger brains than me.

The picture in my avatar was taken a while ago now; I was at about 75% skull when that was taken, which is the condition I try and maintain year round. I don’t see the need to bulk your head up excessively just to remove the scalp later and see that despite your head filling out XXL hats, you don’t have half the grey matter you thought you did. That’s why loads of dudes with big heads are scared to cut.

Supps wise I just use the usual fish oil, vitamin D and ZMA. The fish oil in particular keeps my sulci shiny and full looking, and I definitely notice myself getting a bit flatter if I stop taking it for a while.

Honestly, training-wise I don’t think there’s anything too much I can teach you as my genetics are good and keep my brain at about 60% fat without any LISS or calorie counting. When I first started training I bought into the whole idea that you didn’t need direct work for the temporal lobe so I’ve been training it twice a week to try and get it to catch up.

My basic training philosophy is

-stay in school
-don’t do drugs
-go to university
-read books

I try and read something 5 days a week and modulate intensity, so I’ll have a heavy literature day, then a light reading day and go on like that. I take weekends off from training usually and’ll have a cheat day where I read something trashy.

any other questions just ask

Would you let Fr0nk mindfuck you?[/quote]

do I get a mindreacharound?[/quote]
I can’t imagine him not providing one

I’m going to need more of a guarantee than that before I commit to anything

Good for you rds. Keep it in the hat. No need to think on the first date.

I guess either one, but the cerebrum looks more like glutes.

These guys are dying to give you lines like - “My, what big lobes you have” and “Won’t you stick your gyrus in my sulci?”

so wait…that picture in rds avatar ISN’T a girl???

You’re not whiny and self-entitled enough for it to be obvious. You probably don’t even have a business degree either.
