    In other words, high intensity cardio increases protein synthesis? No it doesn't. Proof of your claim would be needed to convince us, good luck with that :rofl:
    When you perform high intensity cardio, testosterone increases. Testosterone is essential for building and maintaining muscle. Also when you perform HIIT, the transportation of glucose type 4 to the muscles increases, this means you're able to perform at your maximum during that HIIT workout.
    Not to dismiss the fact that HIIT increases HGH up to 530% which you can never get doing any other type of exercise other than high intensity cardio. The role of HGH is broad but one of them is to maintain lean muscle mass. Thats why you see body builders typically using hgh injections.

    Few problems with these theories snd figures. Firstly, any spike in hormones induced via exercise is very temporary and there's no evidence to support that this temporary boost is significantly beneficial. Secondly, there have been numerous studies done recently to show that the ability to gain muscle between males with naturally high anabolic hormone levels vs those with androgen deficiency isn't largely different, nullifying the once popular belief that your natural hormone levels determine how well you'll gain (not as if teenage boys with very high testosterone levels are making steroid-level gains after all).

    It's not quite clear as to why the body responds differently to exogenous hormones than it does to its own endogenous supply, but for example a person with a natural testosterone level of 100ng isn't going to get the same result as someone with the same level induced by an injection.

    This is not theory, its a fact.
    HGH is stimulated by the pituitary gland, responsible for the growth of bones and muscle. Its chemical name is Somatropin. Studies show that HIIT stimulates production of your Human Growth Hormone (HGH) by up to 450 percent during the 24 hours after you finish HIIT. Clearly levels or HGH are still elevated even post HIIT. Testosterone bone aswell and more importantly maintains muscle. You have what you called androgenic growth zones in you flat bones, these are bones which don't have a seal. All facial bones are flat bones, in males with high testosterone you will see stimulation of androgenic growth zones such are the brow bone ridge, chin and forehead. There may not be a significant difference in building muscle mass but there is for maintaining that lean muscle mass.

    The point- although nobody else has struggled with the inference thus far- is to demonstrate the hypocrisy when it comes to the objectification of the sexes i.e. outrage if that was a girl and guys were 'rating' her based on physical attributes but it's fine when it's a guy.

    There's a difference between purposely solicited and passive "rating". So your point doesn't hold except as an easy rep grab
    (In English: if a girl were asking guys to rate here there'd be no problem there either)

    well women decided to get their tops off out of choice for Page 3 and third party feminists took an issue with that. So.

    The issue taken was more about the principle of sticking nude ladies in a national newspaper, not about any injustice done to the individual women. Kind of irrelevant here.

    Yes, I'm already well aware of how the body produces and uses hormones
    I wasn't disputing that these spikes occur - I was disputing their effectiveness, as a myth that has been debunked a million times over. Interesting article on the whole thing (and why it's all been proved as not worth the bother) here http://anthonycolpo.com/boosting-gro...ct-or-fiction/

    What's wrong with sticking nude ladies in a national newspaper? No one involved even had a problem with it, not the paper, not the model and not even the readers.

    Something about normalising objectification, I guess

    So if women are allowed to nude model it's objectification and they're being oppressed, if women aren't allowed they're being slut shamed and oppressed.
    Why don't people take feminists seriously?

    Lol you have double standards and you don't even know how to have a normal conversation without thirsting or being salty. With me you appear to have taken the latter approach. Why don't you now uphold your apparent dislike of anything that doesn't have subjective 'point' to you and spend literally your entire evening on TSR calling people out on stuff you consider pointless?

    FYI you may have to outsource this work.

    That's some serious strawmanning. No reasonable amount of feminists suggest women being allowed to nude model is oppression. The issue as I've said is about it being in a national newspaper and the manner in which it's presented (you know, the little list of stats about breast size and stuff, among other things)
    The latter point is what most would agree with.
