There's just no way I could work out in the morning. My internal clock doesn't really start until 10:00am or so, I couldn't consistently motivate myself to get up at 5:30am to hit the gym. But, it's become a non-issue for me. My old gym has re-opened under new ownership, still with 24 hour access, s...

Thanks stu. That's a cool link and looks workable for me if I have to go that route.

Frustration/Motivation

I started walking for fitness last summer, 2006, and then earlier this year I joined a gym to start doing strength training. I have really begun to enjoy lifting weights and got myself into a good habit/routine of days doing it. But now the gym that I was using has closed. It was open 24 hours a day...

I saw a very interesting thing on television the other night. Prior to the invention of the electric light bulb, we got an average of 10 hours or so of sleep per night. Since then the average has dropped to 7ish per night.

Is there any nutritional difference between raw and boiled? I can't imagine that there would be. I always keep boiled eggs in the refrigerator for a handy snack. I've eaten one raw egg in my life and that was enough for me, pretty high YAACCK factor on that for me.

It'd be almost impossible for me to eat enough protein in one day by just slamming down chicken. Not totally impossible, but pretty close. And it's hard for me to carry a couple of chicken breasts with me to eat at work before going to the gym and a couple more to eat afterwards while on my way to g...

I started taking creatine about 1.5 months ago. I'm also a beginner with this weight lifting thing, so all the following is purely anecdotal and should be taken with a grain of salt. I'd been having trouble maintaining strength through my workouts, and within sets themselves. I'd tried some stuff nu...

One more question about this, I hope it doesn't get lost in this thread. Is there a limit to the amount of protein that should be consumed at one time. What I mean is that based on the idea that "It's not how much protein you ingest, but how much you digest" is there a limit to what the body can han...

The Iron Fortress stuff? I looked at that in there, and the price was certainly right, but I was unsure. I'll take your word for it though and give that a try.

What is the best source for Whey protein? Brand names, stores, websites, whatever. I live in a very rural town in Northern Oklahoma so my choice for shopping for anything, without driving 100 miles, is either Walmart, GNC or the internet. Right now I'm using the GNC 100% Whey. It's available locally...

Thanks for the critique TimD, I'll make that suggested change to my sheet. Tonight will be my first night trying this, I'm really looking forward to using a more structured attack.

These numbers are pretty lame compared to a lot of them, but they represent what I consider good progress for me. I just started moving weights around in late March, so I'm happy with them. Bicep curls with dumbells: Started at 15 lbs, now doing 35lbs each side. Bench press: Started on Smith rack at...

Please review my plan

Greetings, After a post last week in the nutrition section and doing some additional reading on my own I've come up with a plan that I hope will help me burn fat better by trying to increase my metabolism and increasing my overall strength. My focus will be on increased strength training with weight...

I will do that. I'm not sure how I will react if it is high. I've done a really good job of cutting out the cholesterol and fat related stuff from my diet, mostly staying away from the transfats type BS. If it's still high and the doctor wants to put me on some kind of pill I may very well tell him ...

That all makes sense. I know I was losing a lot of muscle before. So I was thinking of switching to just two days a week of weights, instead of three, but it sounds like maybe I'm better off doing three. Which is what I'd rather do anyway. I've been making really good, steady strength gains over the...
