Omega 3 dosage ? (Silvy)

« Optimal » for fish oil is probably an impossible goal; the ideal dose will change based on:

  • Your history of fish intake and supplementation
  • Dietary omega-6 intake from all sources
  • Excluding plants, your dietary intake of arachidonic acid (omega-6 from meat products)
  • Dietary intake of phytonutrients that influence omega fatty acid metabolism (ie. rosmarinic acid or fucoxanthin)
  • Activity level
  • Intake of antioxidants to assess lipid turnover

And I can confidently say that all the above are not only difficult to measure, but even then they aren’t perfect indicators of your ‘optimal’ level. It truly leads to a « fuck this shit » conclusion. There’s a reason why most educated persons just hedge their bets and say « eat some fish or supplement fish oil kinda maybe evenly with your omega 6? »

The 1:1 ratio thing (animal sources of omega-3 and animal sources of omega-6) is a vague goal but it works pretty well, no better measurement seems to be on the horizon so we’re sticking with it still.


1:1 is just some vague target. We know that some populations work well at 1:4, and some also at 3:1.

Most of all, we know that if you tell people to aim for 1:1 they still won’t get it because they can’t micromanage their diet that well, but at least it gets them close.


Jesus some of you are so helpless and hopeless. Phat ppl whatever it doesnt fucking matter. JUST LIFT. LIFT 7 days a week if you can.

Fucking lift. Cutting is diet. Lifting is lifting. Stop asking questions regarding if your program is ok to cut on.

Grunting in Tennis Increases Ball Velocity but Not Oxygen Cost

RPE significantly increased over time with periods 2–5 being greater than period 1 (p = 0.001). It was concluded that grunting increased ball velocity without increasing V[Combining Dot Above]O2 or VE/V[Combining Dot Above]O2 or RPE in comparison with not grunting. It may be worthwhile for players and coaches in tennis and other sports to experiment with grunting to determine possible improvement in performance.
