    You should see a doctor immediately.

    I have been doing some levering for a few months now...haven't had this problem. Go see a Dr. dude.

    I thought levering was used in the cutting phase to shed excess pounds. It sounds to me like you're some kind of mutant.

    hahaha, yes very funny, oh wait, it WOULD be funny if i was some noob, but since i have been here longer than all of you (except ian), i guess i just don't see the humor in it, levering certainly isn't on the top of the list for gaining mass in the forearms, there are much greater things to use, and since i have been levering for a while and am only now seeing changes, it seems odd to me

    Perhaps it's because you live in Awesomeville. When did you move there? Did it coincide w/ the sudden onset of hypertrophy that has plagued you? I hear appendages grow like wildfire in the great village.
