Curls for the girls. If a man can't lift his own weight repeatedly, what is he worth? An autographed Jan Hrdina stick?



This is how I do it (but only because Gary Roberts won't invite me to workout like supa-star James Neal).

Speaking of BodyBuilding.com.... their website is amazing. I order something in the morning and i get it the next day. It's ridiculous. Their shipping is so damn fast.

A BCAA to try out if you are looking for a new one is: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/rs...ion/regen.html RSP ReGen is the easiest thing in the world to mix with water. I love the taste. I feel it does a good enough job.

Preworkout energy/focus: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/bsn/hyper-shred.html Hyper Shred by BSN. Pill form - great quick energy w/o crap jittery ****. I don't ever get anything from caffeine because I drink way to much, but this does a nice job for focus.

I'm trying to drop 10 pounds, but jesus christ smoking cigarettes is the worst thing you can do for your body. I used to be able to run 3x7 minute miles no problem, now I can only do 10 minute miles with a few breaks in between.

Does anyone here drink muscle milk? i've had it for a few weeks. I've read it's not bad for you, either. Zero sugar in it, 20G protein. It's a little pricey, like almost $3 per bottle.

Drop the smokes, you get more energy and a healthier body and no risk of lung cancer unless it's second hand.

Still to this day I struggle with pull ups. I prefer to dangle while having 3 45's tied around my waist.

I've been doing 400 crunches, 100 push ups, 3 sets of 15 of 50lb curls, and 30 minutes a day on my heavy bag. My shoulders look pretty damn good. Only redeeming quality I have lol.

Instead of going to a tuna/veggies diet, i'd highly suggest just finding a diet that is right for you to actually live with. I watch too many people diet strictly then completely give it up. Portion control and finding alternatives is the best diet, IMO. Then you can really live the way your diet works for you.

If you can do one pull up, that's all you need for now. Here is an easy way to build yourself into a pull-up machine:

2-3 times a week do 12 sets of one pull up each. Rest 45s - min in between sets.

When you can do two pull-ups in a row, move it up to 6 sets 2 reps. Rest between sets.

Then when you can do three, do 4x3.

Keep slowly building up your reps per set and you'll be surprised how easily you can crank out pull-ups in a month or two. Then start experimenting with hand grip positions to make it harder.

You guys notice any difference with creatines? I just use quality creatine monohydrate powder. A friend's using that pricey CON-CRET stuff, but everything I've read suggests that as long as you get quality creatine, that CON-CRET jazz is just expensive window dressing.

Nice, good job. Guy at my work lost 87 pounds in 2 years walking up mountains, another lost 71.

What about the scale part? Should I subtract 13 pounds from it? Or pretend I gained 13 pounds and try losing it again? Would take me a month to do as I lose 2-3 pounds a week now. I dunno what to do about this problem. I never gained anything but if I subtract 13 pounds I'm cheating not starting at 0. I like watching my progress. I'm on recovery week of Insanity, I start the new month Monday.

The life of an arthritic writer is a sedentary one...I'm thinking of getting an elliptical machine that will, almost certainly, not fit into my tiny little apartment...any (fairly) inexpensive recommendations?

About 6 years ago I bought a Schwinn 430 elliptical on Amazon.com for $600. It has held up really well from a quality standpoint, but it lacks some of the nice features you get on the gym-quality ones like articulating pedals and such. But for that kind of money, you can't expect too much, and it does provide every bit as good of a workout.

It looks like that one is no longer available, but has been replaced by either the 420 (http://www.amazon.com/Schwinn-420-El...inn+elliptical) or the 425 (http://www.amazon.com/Schwinn-100321...b_title_sports)

The A40 looks really inexpensive, but kind of chintzy. That said, its lighter than the others and would probably still give a solid workout.

Move the scale to like 5 different spots and whatever the most consistent reading is... that is likely the true weight.

Scales do sometimes give a false reading in a certain spot, so that can happen. If you never moved the scale from that spot since you started your whole workout routine, then you can probably assume you were actually 13 pounds heavier when you started, too, and therefore you have still lost the same amount of weight.

I would also consider using waist circumference as a measure of progress, though, if I were you. Using a scale is tough, because as you get more fit, you will gain muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat, so there will come a time where your weight is not changing much despite a lot of effort, and it can be easy to get discouraged, but you will actually be losing inches off of your waist and such. You could technically lose an inch off your waist without gaining or losing any weight, and you'd look better and be healthier all the while.

Steel-cut oats. Eggs. Chicken. PB2. Squats. Deadlifts. Curls. Skullcrushers. Dumbbell lateral raises. Military press.

That's all you need.

This is what I drink. I get Vanilla, and the bottles that are already pre-made.

They're actually 25G of protein. Lactose free as well. It's like, 25% to 50% of all your daily needs in one drink. I love it. It's basically a meal replacement if you're trying to lose weight as well. It's got like 2% of your daily fat and only 150 calories I believe.

I've been taking Whey Protein, too. Found it's only $15.99 at Wal-Mart. Two scoops gets you 340 calories, 4% daily fat and 60G protein. Between that and a shake, I already get near 100G of protein.

Over the last 3 weeks, I got back into lifting and I've done this.

On days I can lift, I'll drink a shake, I'll eat one thing that is fattening, but will still give me protein, and make sure I get 2 scoops from the Whey Protein. Like, I'll get a plain sandwich from Primanti's when I'm out with work (JUST Steak and Cheese, NOTHING ELSE) and that has like 30G of fat, but it's also got high protein (I think 45G?) Right there, I'm already at 130G protein; which is already pretty good since I'm only 160 lbs myself.

Over these last couple weeks, I'm already seeing big results in my biceps, triceps and chest. I havn't gained weight (I make sure I lift and run off the grams of fat, so I never get near 65G a day) and I always drink water with meals. Nothing else.

Days I can't lift a lot, I end of eating a lot of chicken. I've tried to hold back on fattening food, so I cut back on things. However, If I am eating things fattening, I work off the Fat G's and get light workouts in if I don't go hard for the day.

Honestly can't remember when I ate Pizza last. I LOVE pizza, but my love for chicken has overtaken it now That and my wife has made me steak ums or steak whenever she can

A few weeks back, I was going at 120 lbs for uncontrolled press (mind you, I'm a small dude; I'm more focused on staying in running shape for hockey) but I'm already up to 150. Starting to get results in my back as well. Here's what I generally do.

3 exercises of biceps. Minimum of 12-15 reps each set.
3 exercises of triceps. (See above)
3 exercises of shoulders.
3 exercises of chest.
3 exercises of abs.

I work in back lately, especially upper. I have to be careful, I have some shoulder damage right now. I usually focus on shoulders and back as "secondary" muscles. For example, if I go with a Vertical Press, I'm working my chest, but the secondary is my shoulders.

I get at least 60 minutes lifting, then spend 10 running (about 8 minute pace) then 10-15 on the stationary bike, or 15 minutes shooting hoops.

Any tips on losing stomach fat? Tips with underrated protein gaining foods that aren't fattening?
