What’s The Deal With Palumboism?

Introduction:

Palumboism is a very rare and complex disease only seen in the ranks of professional bodybuilders, especially the ones from the 1990’s and 2000’s eras.

Palumboism effects mostly the limbs and especially the midsection area. Where the width of the ribs, waist and pelvis grow disproportionately, while the obliques thicken thus rendering the person from sucking in and holding in their stomachs. Something known as the vacuum in the bodybuilding world.

Where Did The Name Palumboism Come From?:

Palumboism was first noticed during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. It was first noticed on bodybuilder Dave Palumbo, hence the name Palumboism.

Causes:

Palumboism is a funny disease, since no one knows what really causes it. Some people speculate and assume that the reason the bodybuilders in the 1990’s and 2000’s got it was because of the high does HGH (human growth hormone) and insulin. I believe that in fact these are some of the causes of the disease. If you notice the bodybuilders from the beginning of competitive bodybuilding all the way to the early 1990’s, you’ll notice not a single person with the disease or its symptoms.

However, I believe the main culprit of Palumboism is stress and adrenal fatigue. Bodybuilders put vast amounts of stress on their bodies from various things, such as forced eating, steroid and performance enhancer use and weight training, which in itself is very stressful to the central nervous system.

Over time, it’s no wonder these people’s bodies begin to breakdown. Stress can do that to a person and high stress levels is one of the indications of adrenal fatigue.

Therefore the main causes of Palumboism can be broken down into these four areas

1. High steroid usage

2. High HGH/insulin usage

3. Stress

4. Adrenal fatigue

Cures:

There are currently no known cures for Palumbosim. The only solution to the disease is if the person gives their bodies a rest, meaning no more usage of steroids and other various performance enhancers. Simple rest and recovery will soothe the disease and halt it right into it’s tracks.

The Five Tale-Tale Signs of Steroid Usage

When we all see a massive and shredded guy in the gym we all want to know either his muscle building secrets or if he is on steroids. Well, my friends with these five tale-tale signs of steroid usage below, you will uncover even the most deceitful of steroid use.

Sign 1: Big Traps

Whenever someone has big traps it could be for a variety of reasons, either they are genetically gifted or they are on steroids. The reason why the trapezoid muscle gets pumped up and huge when someone is taking steroids is because there is a large concentration of androgenic receptors in the human upper body. Especially in the traps, delts and chest areas.

When someone is taking anabolic and or androgenic steroids they introduce a large volume and concentration of testosterone or a different variety of testosterone in the their bodies. Now, where does all of this testosterone go? Well it’s quite simple the testosterone molecule attaches itself to the androgenic receptors, especially the ones found in the traps, delts and chest region!

Sign 2: Armor Plated Chest

The other tale-tale sign of steroid usage is a huge thick armor plated chest. The chest region in the human body doesn’t have as much androgenic receptors at the traps and delts do, but still it has a higher concentration of these receptors then the rest of the body.

Sign 3: 3-D Delts

Again 3-D delts are a sign of steroid usage because once again that is the area where a high and vast concentration of androgenic receptors are located. When someone takes steroids they will notice a vast increase in size in their traps, delts and chest first before noticing any other growth in their body.

Sign 4: Pointy and Long Nipples

This is a sign, I noticed with most heavy duty steroid users and even the small time users. Their nipples become pointy, long and even there areolas shrink, signalling a sign of very high testosterone levels. way above the normal levels!

Sign 5: Gynecomastia 

Gynecomastia is another tale-tale sign of steroid usage. Now, the more experienced steroid users will hide and get rid of their gynecomastia if they had any in the first place by introducing an estrogen blocker such as Arimidex.

An inexperienced steroid user however, might not afford or know of estrogen blockers such as Arimidex, and boom all of a sudden gynecomastia will hit them harder then a hammer.

Gynecomastia is a result of too much estrogen in the male body. When an inexperienced user takes steroids their testosterone levels increase and so do their estrogen levels, since the human body always wants to be in the state of equilibrium. Not to mentions also some of the testosterone aromatizes into estrogen due to the aromatase enzyme.

Overall, I hope that these five tale-tale signs of steroid usage helps you to spot fakes naturals in the gym! However, it shouldn’t matter to you if they are taking steroids or not, since it’s their body and it’s none of your business, but the real reasons I wrote this article is because some people find this topic very interesting!

Kali Muscle’s Slap City Banned for Good

Kali Muscle has been keeping it real and gangster to his fans out there on social media land. He is known for his famous preworkout called Hyphy Mud and his famous way of motivating people before doing a set in the gym, by hitting and slapping them, which is known as slap city!

Thankfully slap city has been banned for good at bodybuilding and fitness expos. Now, I understand some people find tortures techniques motivating before they do a set or anything for that matter, but in my mind it’s pretty crazy and disgusting. However, I believe the vast majority of people in the fitness industry do not get any motivation from tortures techniques such as slap city. In fact I believe the only reason people do it is too look cool and tough, because lets face it Kali Muscle did a good job promoting and marketing slap city and now every person in the fitness community and industry knows what it is.

Slap city is like the knockout game, it caught on and now everyone’s doing it just to fit in because it looks cool. Like I said above, thankfully it got banned and I hope it eventually dies down. If you do not find something motivating then don’t do it, stay away from the rat race and just be yourself!

Tom Platz a Heavy Duty Inspiration

Tom Platz also known as “The Golden Eagle” was a professional IFBB bodybuilder back from the late seventies all the way to the late eighties. He is known for his massive leg development and hence earned the name quadzilla, lets just say his legs where a sight to be seen and that one can’t help but notice the blood, sweat and tears that went into building them into the giant tree stumps we know of today. His best result as a professional bodybuilder was third place at the 1981 Mr. Olympia. He is also known for his high intensity heavy duty type training, the same type of training that I preach to my readers.

Tom Platz also knew what worked for his body and utilized it to his advantage. I remember that Tom Platz once stated that he trained with Arnold Schwarzenegger for a while and tried his volume routine. He said that when he did that type of training, he felt weak and instead of growing he in fact lost size. That’s why I always recommend to my readers to experiment in the gym and see what works for them, no two people are the same and what might work for me, might not necessarily work for you.

However, though I am a true believer in the heavy duty type training which I preach to my readers. Lifting weights is more then you just going through the motion, it requires a hundred percent effort, intensity and muscular simulation through the use of various means, such as negative reps, forced reps and so on. Not to mention the heavy duty high intensity type training also states that muscular growth is made outside of the gym and not in in it, the gym just merely serves as a tool that you can use so that your body can send the growth signal to your muscles.

Below are couple of video links with Tom Platz in them, showing some people on how to train the heavy duty way. Take notice of how just one set taxes the body in an unbelievable way. If these videos are not motivation, then I don’t know what is!

2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MfwUmdc734 take notice 32 seconds in.
