But it's 2015 now.

Why haven't you started thickening your water for maximum gains?

Benefits of thickened water:

Do you want smooth muscle strength and mass gains to match your skeletal muscle gains?

> increased fiber content of the water adds mass for gastrointestinal strength gains

Have you ever drank a bunch of water, pissed it out and gotten thirsty again?

> the fiber in the water acts as a binder and lets that water stay inside you longer, where it's needed rather than slide right through?

What about making sure your serum glucose and insulin levels are stable?

> soluble fiber in water means that thickened water has a lower glycemic index than regular water

If you're not thickening your water, you're a goddamned fool.

So we all know the "pump" helps with hypertrophy, because the rush of blood to the muscles adds interstitial tissue to the myofibrils, stretching out the myosin and actin fibers and increasing the amount of sarcoplasm.

BUT WHAT IF THICKENED WATER WAS GOING IN THERE?

> more stretching
> more sarcoplasm
> more hypertrophy

Thicken your water, my friends, and gains will abound.

> thicker water
> thicker muscles
> thicker gains

how long have you been trying this thick water program and what kind of results have you seen?

There are many brands of thickened water. You can get thickened water at any chain grocery store. If you are so inclined you can even thicken your own water.

You have no excuse. They say blood is thicker than water, but thickened water is even thicker.

Let's point out the fact that the increased viscosity of thickened water means that a body which drinks thickened water is a body less prone to the negative effects of post-exercise inflammation. A body which drinks thickened water will be resistant to catabolic effects.

PS, /fit/, this is how you train your throat.

If you have a chicken neck, its because you're swallowing weak shit
>>
>>30432337

This guy gets it.

Look: the weakest point in your Valsalva is going to be your glottis. You can strengthen your pelvic floor, you can strengthen your diaphragm, you can strengthen your obliques and transverse abdominals, but unless you strengthen your glottis, you won't be able to hold all that big air. If you can't hold in the big air, your body's safety mechanisms (Golgi tendon organs) will kick in and you won't be able to maintain a stable spine.

TRAIN YOUR GLOTTIS. DRINK THICKENED WATER.

Thickened fluids and thickened drinks are often used for people with dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing), a disorder of swallowing function. The thicker consistency makes it less likely that an individual with will aspirate while they are drinking. Individuals with difficulty swallowing may find liquids cause coughing, spluttering or even choking and thickening drinks enables them to swallow safely. Patients are often ordered onto thickened liquids after being extubated. Liquid thickness may be measured by two methods, with a viscometer or by line spread test.

There are several levels of consistency/viscosity.

Thin liquids: Unthickened, such as water or juice. Common thin liquids include coffee, tea, clear broth, clear juice, skim milk, 2% milk, and whole milk.
Nectar thickened: Approximately as thick as a milkshake. Should pour in a continuous stream without "breaking" into drops. Common "natural" nectar thick liquids include nectar, tomato juice, and buttermilk.
Honey thickened: Sticks to the sides of a cup like honey. Pours very slowly. Liquids include honey and cream soups.
Pudding thickened: Will hold its shape when scooped with a spoon.

Patients who have a restriction to thin liquids should avoid ice cream, popsicles, and Jell-O as these melt into thin liquids in the mouth.

There are multiple commercial thickeners on the market for thickening liquids. Vendors are also preparing pre-thickened liquids such as water, juice, and milk in individual serving sized cartons. Some commercial thickeners use modified maize starch, which helps support hydration and nutritional levels, while others use xanthan gum.

Ran a shaved ice stand summers in high school.
We used thickened water to make our diet syrups more sugar like.

Rarely did I see mutant-diabetes kids jacked on our thick stuff.

Couldn't you add fiber to water with just those powders? This stuff is pretty expensive, $35 for a 48 oz bottle.

This is for patients who have had strokes or other brain injuries like tumors who can no longer control their pharyngeal muscles to swallow. It doesn't offer any other benefit other than being difficult to choke on. Literally nothing else. You guys are idiots

t's a not-so-stealthy child porn ring/shock sub. So... you need to be a pedophile with a camera or somebody who's into that. Please report postings of that link to mods/admins in the future; I've already done so in this case.
It's a CSS thing, and a pretty well-known one at that. Kinda like how a few circlejerks change usernames to reflect a theme, except mirroring other subs cosmetically while the links direct to kiddie porn assuming you're using some tool (it's like TOR, I think, but I don't really pay attention to the shady side of the net - if you're tech savvy I'd guess you've heard of it). So this sub moves around whenever it gets deleted, and it's up to people reporting it and the users maliciously linking to it to get the admins' attention. I assume they report it to authorities, but these subs keep popping up. I miss the days when at least you knew /r/creepshots[1] would be the disgusting borderline sub instead of having to be wary of every sub you get linked to. Also, most of the links there will attempt to install some nasty viruses on your computer if you don't have the requisite tool. Unless you're using VirtualBox or have a trustworthy firewall I'd recommend a virus scan.

The increased viscosity of thickened water leads to a better heat transfer. My calories are 10W40 cooled.

>drinking your thickened water at less than body temperature

If you want to cripple your gains by reducing the osmotic pressure in your vascular system, I guess.
