tubs are sold by weight and not volume - clearly stated on the ON box. Different flavors and different brands have different volume for the same content weight - depending on density and texture of powder, flavoring, etc. Hence you may get different number of scoops from each box
edit - example of 2kgs each of rice, wheat, bajra, wheatflour, etc. Would they all occupy the same space/volume and would you get the same number of scoops of each ?? answer is not.

so that means we cannot order myofusion from them as of now ? lets hope they launch it soon! I quite liked the nutrient content of myofusion and i think it replaces the need for a multivitamin, right?

I've sent them a mail asking about Myofusion's availability, hope to hear from them soon. Yes Myofusion does have some vitamins and calcium but I don't think it could replace your multivitamin tab.

Can anyone recommend a good aerobics class somewhere around Malleswaram/Majestic area (Bangalore)?

My wife and I used to go to Figurine fitness in Chinnaswamy stadium some time back but now we hear that they are shifting somewhere else and the new place is not yet ready.

Specifically they are talking about short range squats, presses and extensions. Does anyone have a good video on how these are properly executed - the text on the link above states
"First, place a flat bench under the power rack set the bar to a position where the negative part of the movement, beginning with arms extended completely, will be about five inches. Use a weight that is sufficiently heavy (150% of ones one rep max would be best but this could be determined by the trainer) and complete six repetitions. A good rule of thumb is to lower the bar every week by one sixth of ones total arm length (a 24 inch arm divided by four equals four inches, for example). "
I am not quite sure if I am doing the right thing - any pointers or video on how a short range squat is done for ligament/tendon development would be nice
I am starting to feel the importance of ligament/tendon development (also useful for anyone into sport or martial arts). Any pointers on my query posted earlier?? Or are we just a supplements thread

I was thinking about this yesterday @ the gym. Coincidentally, I landed up with pretty much the same technique for triceps pushdown. Basically, all its asking you is to cheat the rep. I too was going over the 1RM consistently, because I was cheating. Kids were harrassing me, calling me "Arnold 1975, Arnold 1975" dunno why.
However, to me this seemed like a sure-fire way of snapping tendons, not building them. Google Dorian Yates' pec-tear story and maybe that'll scare you more. A much better way to strengthen joints/ligaments/tendons, to my untrained eye, would be to use the stability ball, non-impact exercises (swimming), and 15 rep-range sets (or just a few more reps, as compared to your routine, with less weight or less number of sets, whichever your ego allows and therefore suits you best).

well here is another article on partial rep training
Bodybuilding.com - Nick Nilsson - Partial Rep Training For Full-Powered Results!
Apart from being useful in developing connective tissue like ligaments and tendons, it can also be used for strengthening various weak parts of your overall squat or press.
It is however not recommended in place of full range squats or presses, but just as something which can be used to compliment and help in ones overall development.
A good example is when doing a squat the weakest position for one is when we are closest to the floor - the max weight we can lift in this this weakest position decides what weight we take then in our full squat. So although in the remaining squat movement you can take much more weight, its this weak link which holds you back (fear of not being able to get up from a$$ to grass position). Now imagine just training this weakest position in a partial rep and making it stronger and you would slowly start lifting more overall weight in your full squats too .
Apply this principle to any other exercise like bench presses and you can achieve similar results and improvements.
So partial reps in the top or bottom range of any movement are not only useful for connective tissue but also for increasing your poundages in full range movements.
A lot of us already do partials when supersetting biceps (set of 21s - 7 up, 7 down, 7 full).
Makes sense to add the technique of doing partials to atleast some of the workouts - it can only be beneficial. Ofcourse don't go ballistic and tear your pecs
