RACE DOES NOT EXIST
B-B-BUT ADAPTIONS TO DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS EXISTS
BUT ITS NOT RACE
Look at FST. Look at genetic distance. When we look at DNA, there is half as much difference between a bonobo and a chimpanzee than there is between congoids (subsaharan africans) and nordic europids (north europeans)
But, a bonobo is considered a different species.
Holy fuck how stupid are some people.

0:35 "Sociology 101, race is a social construct" Sociology has no qualified position on issues such as biology.
0:58 "race is not real, but ethnicity is" The guy has it completely backwards. Ethnicity is a large umbrella term that includes social constructs like religious or cultural ethnicity, but also biological ethnicity like race (See ethno-racial) So it's the other way around.
1:29 "prior to the civil war there was an Irish race" Yeah and it still is. Irish people are an ethno-racial group. This man seems to believe that races are purely separated via melanin levels.
1:99 "These countries don't see racial divide the same way" I don't know about Brazil and India. But that's utter BS with Japan and Australia. Japanese have always distinguishes themselves from other asians and Australians often have similar race issues the US has but with aboriginals.
2:14 "Categorizing other humans is related to pareidolia" Seeing faces in shapes and objects has nothing to do with race. Pareidolia is a term used to describe seeing faces in non-facial objects.
2:25 "There is no genetic basis for race but different looks such as bumpy noses and height are genetic" How often does this guy just contradict his own statements? Differences in physiological features between races are pretty obvious.
2:50 "Different kinds of hair proves race is a social construct" No it disproves it, otherwise we'd see naturally blonde with blue eyes black people which never happens aside from very unlikely mutations.
3:16 "We are all the same, we are all homo sapiens" Nobody ever disputed that. All different dog breeds are also all the same species.
3:21 "We usually boil it down to skin color which makes no sense" I agree, skin color is one of those things that doesn't define race at all. An African who is albino is still part of the "black" race.
3:40 "The AAA made a statement saying we're all homo sapiens" Yeah we established that. They made a statement debunking the claim that we're separate species not that race as a category is non-existent or a "social contract"
Overall what this video suffers from is that it tries to separate ethnicity from race. Which seems to have become a cop-out for scientists in order to study race differences without actually mentioning race. But race is a biological ethnicity.
Overall i think there are very little differences between races that are actually relevent and i reject the idea that one is inherently superior, but i also reject the idea that it's a social construct when different races clearly produce different biological and physiological features separate from each other. I think the taboo of studying race differences would only make research into diseases and anthropology more difficult.

Personally I disagree, deadlifts and squats work abs plenty, but do whaetever hits your lats the hardest. I'm simply going off my own experience, I can do 25 un weighted pull ups with perfect form and my gym doesn't weight belts so I use the lat pulldown.
Just do whatever responds best
#34437 - mexicanfood (07/12/2015) [-]
well what in you're terms is good ab definition since I was only lifting for about a year when this picture was taken. I could be wrong but the light seems to bleach the definition, I'm sure if I took one in better lighting it could be better. I'd say the real factor when it comes to abs is how much body fat a person has. Granted some people due to genetics can have abs at much higher body fat percentages but id say every one has abs at 10-12% body fat
#34279 - marinepenguin (07/09/2015) [-]
I can agree with the lat pulldowns if you lack a weight belt or further resistance.
But it's been shown time and time again, that squats and deadlifts, while greatly working the inner musculature of the stomach and back, it does not work the rectus abdominus to the proper extent to develop them well. Unless you are born with excellent genetics, your abs will look underdeveloped and soft.
I managed to put on over 60 pounds without losing visible abs, and in my personal experience, my abs looked the worst when I cut back on dedicated ab sessions. Even while moving up on squats consistently.

I must have been holding it differently since I'm using such light weight. Whenever I'm using 3 plates or so for parallel squats I've never had any sort of wrist pain.
And I had always thought my calves were doing alright, but in this video they look abysmal, like wow.
#34211 - marinepenguin (07/07/2015) [-]
I noticed that during this set too, I was too concerned with reaching depth and not leaning too far forward. I was keeping my shoulders back a lot more on the next set and it felt much better. I got a couple more weeks of work before I leave so I'll get it down.

In 1980, about 8 million people had AIDS. AIDS has caused over 30 million deaths since then, and another 40 million people still have it today. Countless millions, perhaps billions, will be infected and killed throughout the future.
Would it have been wrong to kill those first few million (who presumably died anyway) to save the other tens of millions?
#89538 - marinepenguin (07/07/2015) [-]
When it comes to diseases. The point is to cure, not to eradicate. If we were to have killed everyone with HIV, it obviously would have stemmed the tide and kept it from spreading, but as science has progressed people can live fairly normal lives with aids, and cures are becoming more feasible. Curing people with the disease sounds better than just eradicating those who have it, whether or not another 10 million people get it. That's human empathy.

I may have just been tired when I read it, but I thought the author made it clear he liked and used the big 3. I understand his point that doing nothing but s/b/d won't build a balanced physique the same way someone who does a mix of compound and isolation work that hits the muscles from different angles. I personally base my workouts off of the big 3 and ohp useing minimal isolation work (1-2 exercises per workout) because a barbell row is more challenging than a pull over and stiff leg deadlifts are better for my hamstrings. If you're a powerlifter, specify, if you're a gym rat just do what you have the most fun doing that gets you results.
#34176 - Draigor (07/07/2015) [-]
I read this yesterday. Seems we always come back to what big actually means, as in, there is a difference between powerlifter big and bodybuilder big. Can't say I agree with the article wholeheartedly. Movements that place an emphasis on a muscle will always engage the muscle. This is obvious, and pretty much what I got out of the article. Squats, deads, and bench will still give you size.
Dare I say it was bordeline click bait...especially for powerlifting style trainers.
I've starting reading Juggernaut Training Systems articles. Idk if you know about them already, but its another great source for lifting info.
