    yeahhhh brah he should know like your ppar alpha ghrelin levels get all out of whack when the body's hypertrophic cannibalistic missles fire, thus inihibiting tsh/t3/t4 rise of the machines, and also causing a negative seratonin metabloite 5htp to form and cause catabolic arrest to inidividuals experiencing upper dorsimus pain from TUT training and not maximizing post workout GH levels by a 55/30/15 sugar/starch/chlorofluorocarbon mix

    anything that applies such a specific amount to everybody is gonna be false 99.9% of the time.

    do you attribute the gained inch to acutal growth or more because of posture being fixed by having a stronger back? Since I got back into working out I've gained like 1/2 an inch because my posture is a lot better.

    I've heard that too... but I think it's rare for men to grow past 17 or 18. That's just from my observation though.
