Best Of The Forums - April 2nd, 2006.

The best of the forums is back again with some interesting new topics. Our forum members this week are talking about when to drink water, an ignorant society, cutting for summer, and much more. Check it out!

Poll Of The Week

Should There Be A Company Promotion Forum Category?

Since companies have reps (as well as owners) on the Bodybuilding.com boards, the boards have become a place of product promotion. This has occurred mainly on the supplement board, and for good reason. This week's poll is a good one.

Should There Be A Company Promotion Forum Category?

Yes.
No.
Not Sure.

With respect to company advertising, should Bodybuilding.com open a new forum category for this purpose only? Some people don't like how this kind of stuff is clogging up the supplement boards and others probably don't mind.

Vote here and depending on the outcome of the poll, there may just very well be a new category opening up soon for company reps and promotion! Check it out and voice your opinion. Great poll, "Bane"!


Discussion Of The Week

People's Ignorance On Supplements!

Most day-to-day people have a hard time understanding the world of bodybuilding and fitness and an even harder time trying to get a grasp for supplementation. In fact, most people don't even bother trying to understand supplements and what they really are. Everyone is so uneducated on the topic and they simply don't want to learn otherwise, it seems.

This week's discussion is a really, really good one. 'storm shadow' tells us about his experience with a friend of his in a certain situation. Here, he explains how he never realized how ignorant society really is towards supplements and how sad it really is.

I agree with him 100% and so does just about everyone else that responded to his little rant. A great read on a very important topic, so check it out.

Whether or not you follow the action in the supplements board, you'll probably know of a company called Controlled Labs.

In the relatively short time that this company has been around, it has produces some incredible supplements that have been getting nothing but rave reviews.

This week's supplement review is a review of an entire Controlled Labs stack. Since they just released a new product call Purple Wraath, they selected a few people to test the new product.

'cervasa1977' was lucky enough to get his hands on some Purple Wraath and get some Green Bulge, White Blood, Blue Up, and GlycerGrow to go along with it.

This is one h*ll of a stack and from the review thus far, I can tell that it's going to be very successful.

Check out the review here and see how detailed and helpful this review really is. If you're looking into some Controlled Labs products, you really should take a look at this one.

Question Of The Week

Water?

Everyone knows that water intake is extremely important when living a healthy lifestyle (because those fatties can stick to coke and root beer). As important as water is to good health, it is equally important to drink the water at the right time during the day.

Doctors say that drinking too much water during a meal can dilute the digestive enzymes needed to properly digest the food in your stomach. What does everyone here think of this? 'coreyhalliwell' wanted to know the truth so he came to the boards in hopes of answers.

If you know anything about the topic or would like to see what others think of this, check out this thread. Pretty interesting school of thought, if you ask me.


Workout Log Of The Week

Shape Up For The Summer And Beyond

I don't know about you, but all of this warm weather is really making me crave for the beach season! For this week, I have selected a cutting log and I'm sure you can guess why. Most people probably aren't ready for the beach and to be honest, I'm not quite there either, but whether you want to admit it or not, it's just around the corner and now's the time to start getting cut.

Information Thread Of The Week

Protein Jargon 101

This week I'd like to get back to the basics. As much as we deny it, a lot of people don't know the difference between the different types of protein. As trivial as it may sound, the differences are extremely important to understand.
