    Help with a Paper

    Alright so right now I am swamped with school work I'm currently juggling 4 research papers each with a required minimum of 10 pages. As you can see I am busy.

    For my Bio paper I chose to do a project on skeletal muscles and for part of my project I need to analyze studies so if anyone could point me to studies that show muscle hypertrophy in weightlifting or maybe something on nutrition. Heck I would take any article or study on muscles at all.

    I would normally have no trouble searching for this stuff myself but these other papers are really taking more time then I had planned.

    thanks in advance

    I think you would benefit from narrowing your topic a little... what are you using the research to support or argue? Do you have a thesis yet?

    I would suggest searching around on t-nation for some of their more sciencey articles. At the end they usually have all sorts of citations and refernces that you could look into, and in most of the articles they give a nice summary anyways.

    www.pubmed.com is a good source if you are looking for research materials.

    Wikipedia also has some pretty good info - as Hazerboy suggested I would browse the citations and go from there.

    Any anatomy & physiology or kinesiology book from your library should be plenty for a basic paper like that.

    Well normally my response would be in the form of a resounding "no" but seeing as how easy this is, here you go.

    Did you guys notice that first, he asks us to do his research for him and then says he's "stooping low" to do this. Does that mean we're low?

    I in no way meant to insinuate this. I asked for help because I realized that many on this forum are already much more knowledgeable in this field then I am.

    I imagine had i worded my request more of along the lines of, " Can anyone point me to research that provides a link to the increase in serum testosterone after squatting" than I would have gotten much more friendly responses.

    I had tried to do some research at both my library and on google about squatting but was unable to find any quality information.

    Thanks Tom with the pubmed suggestion as i got my information there.

    Thanks for the other links posted guys,

    Once again didnt mean to cause such a stir, just was looking for a little help from a much more knowledgeable group of guys.

    Didnt mean to come off as some lazy slacker mooching either,
    It was the wrong move and I wont do it again.
