Hey guys and gals,

We're running a, how should I say, pilot or beta version of our new Raptors Republic app. We haven't made it official as we're still trying to work out some bugs while improving the user interface. So, its not the final version so expect to see more changes over the next while.

Anyhow, please feel free to download. Available on both Android & iPhone. It's absolutely free.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rsrepublic.app

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-...6946?ls=1&mt=8

If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    -On this day in Raptors history: January 11th 2008. The Toronto Raptors defeated the New York Knicks 99-90 in Madison Square Garden. Chris Bosh finished the game with 40pts and 11rebs while Anthony Parker and Jamario Moon chipped in with 13pts a piece.

    These are not the Nets of yesteryear's; this season iteration is a tough and hard fighting squad with many good but no great players. Kenny Atkinson has a toolbox full of versatile players and goofy hairdos to throw the opponents way. Currently sitting at 7th place Brooklyn has found themselves in unfamiliar territory, firmly entrenched in the playoff race of a top-heavy Eastern conference. The pesky Nets who are 6-4 in their last 10, will host our friends the Hawks on Wednesday night before they take the short trek to Toronto for Fridays game. Keep an eye on the Nets injury report as they have been bunged up lately. Carroll and Harris have both missed time recently but may be available to return soon, while Hollis-Jefferson will miss extended time with a groin injury. Despite stings from the injury bug the Nets are no longer a schedule win and teams need to come correct if they want to snag a dub.


    Despite the near hiccup against the Hawks the Raptors come into this one hot winners of 3 in a row and 5 of the last 6. After two solid games Toronto needed some clutch defensive stops and a mid ice body check to sneak by the Hawks in crunch time. The lack of time that Kyle and Kawhi have spent on the court was visible on Tuesday. More minutes together will only improve the chemistry of the local all-star paring and should be a point of focus moving forward. Toronto played down to the competition in the last game and must avoid falling into the same trap in this one. They should come into this one with more fight as revenge is on the menu after the dinos lost the December match-up in OT 105-106.


    -Keys to the game.

    Exercise and carb reduced diet will definitely help provide more definition which always looks better. A winning combo under any circumstance.

    It was Linda Hamilton, in her reprise role as Sarah Connor in Terminator 2, that started the popular acceptance of "women with muscles" and next thing you know the gyms were full of women lifting more than 5 pound dumbbells and showing off arms with bicep and triceps muscles actually visible.

    Sounds like a genetic predisposition to carry extra fat on the legs or she just has extra large muscles there. If her arms aren't big around, but her legs are, it is likely just her natural shape.
    Facts. Get rid of chunky legs now before it's harder than it has to be. God speed yuri gargari

    Definitely wrong thread for that discussion. Lol I believe there is a "Health Thread" or something like that in the Off Topic Forum.

    If you have too much of a deficit you won’t lose fat for a while. Your body will go into survival mode and store fat because it thinks it has lost its source of food. There are lots of factors that can affect the CICO idea but the basic premise is true. If you don’t eat enough protein then you’ll burn muscle not fat. If you eliminate carbs supposedly you can put your body in ketosis and it burns fat as energy instead of carbs but that isn’t particularly healthy IMO, and probably not sustainable either.
    Yeah, the sustainability is the hard part. Too many delicious carbs around.

    Wasn't there a recent study that showed CICO isn't entirely accurate? Was put on a keto-type diet a while back. Lost weight, even though I cheated by eating a lot more than I should have, but only meat/veggies/fats.

    Should be fine. Those cyclists you see with massive tree trunk legs don't get that just cycling, they do lots of leg-intensive weight training. Just think calories in, calories out (CICO, in fitness talk). Fewer calories in through diet choices, more calories out through exercise. Pick the calorie burning exercise that makes the most sense for your lifestyle... it's not like you need to exercise the legs specifically to burn leg fat. if you don't have much time, skip cycling and do something really intensive to burn more faster. If just getting on the bike for a while watching TV or listening to audio makes sense for you, do that.

    Sounds like a health question best left to her doctor. Seriously, it could be any number of benign or serious issues.

    PS
    You can't get "massive muscular" legs from a stationary bike unless the resistance was off the charts.
