Does the size of your place you live effect muscle growth? I was wondering because i saw that gold fish grow according to the size of thier enviroment. I just recently moved into a small apt with a few other non-bodybuilders and was wondering about muscle development. Let me know what you guys think

I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!
what about training in high altitudes? how much of an effect can that have?
I live in a small shitty apartment. I'm never going to get bigger.
Hmm well, no offence dude, but its a pretty retarded theory.
You should also start playing basketball, preferably power forward or center. They're usually the tallest players.
isn't it more harder/harsher to train in those enviroments? which make you more conditioned to fight in lower altitudes?
I thought low atmospheric oxygen levels only increased hemoglobin efficiency.
And as for the topic, everyone knows the only reason farmers are strong is because they live in barns.
No Milk, no.
Milk is for babies. When you grow up, you have to drink beer.
Please read and comment on my journal
Really? I swear I read that study and it said just goldfish.
Putting yourself into a chronically hypoxic environment, such as staying at high altitudes for extended periods of time, will cause the kidneys to release erythropoeitin (EPO). This signals the production of additonal red blood cells and subsequently increases the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. In fact, exercise accomplishes the same thing up to a certain point.
Athletes use this phenomenon when they do something called blood doping. They draw some of their own blood, enough that their kidneys produce EPO and more red blood cells are produced. Come competition time, they inject their blood (I'm pretty sure only the formed elements and not the plasma) back into their bloodstream. Instantly they can carry more oxygen and performance improves.
the adaptation to training at high atlitudes is a good thing. Initially though, you will have a hard time with O2 consumption, until that adaptation takes place. I believe this is what they were asking about? then again, this thread has gotten weirder by every post, so I have no clue what the fuck they are asking.
Oh my, this post disserves to be stickied. Best post ever hands down.
You should also only own big pets, like a doberman or a gorilla (this is why my bench is so huge). Oh and you better get rid of your goldfish, by being close to it there's a chance you'll grow gills - careful of that.
