I use body fortress whey as I didnt really take the time to search the internet for any cheaper, alternative brands.
Does the job and the strawberry flavoured one is actually quite nice I think.

Long term heavy abuse of both alcohol and cannabis are obviously dangerous to both mental and physical health however i believe in terms of physical health cannabis has to be the worst, plainly due to what ironman said about the smoke being the damaging factor. Yes alcohol will destroy your liver ov...

Excessive protein

I saw a TV programme last night on the life of Arnold Scharzenegger, spanning from his days working out in the East end of London to becoming the Govenor of California. During an interview with the bloke who put him up in London he mentioned that Arnold used to "get out of bed, eat his 8 egg breakfa...

Cheers for all this advice but unfortuantely i had to undergo quite a large operation yesterday, one which involved a large incision to be made on the left side of my abdomen. Now i expected this to mean i would not be able to lift for a couple of weeks, however after talking to my sugeon it turns o...

Thank you Ironman, its good to know that there are people around willing to pass on valuble information, because what you said about there being a LOT of BS to sift through is absolutely true! I have done a lot of internet research of late and the more I do the more apparant it comes that there is s...

I keep seeing young beginner's out there wanting a 3-4 way split, which supps to eat to get hyooge and ripped at the same time. Oh well. They'll learn. Tim You say about beginners like myself: 'oh well, they'll learn' But i wonder how, if information is not passed on from experienced weight trainer...

yes i think you are right, i have probably been putting too much emphasis on the volume of each workout and not so much on the intensity of each set...

ok i will limit my exercises to 2 or 3 exercises per muscle group. I thought that intensly working out each muscle group once a week by doing a wide range of exercises would be the best way to grow. However after listening to the posts and doing the workout above for 3 weeks i think that maybe, cons...

Also, if you don't want to eliminate an excercise completely, you could try alternating certain excercises. For example you could do pressdowns one week and kickbacks the next. This generally works better with single-joint isolation excercises than major compound lifts. PS.) You might want to drop ...

Apparently, a split where you work bodyparts once a week isn't working for you. For people who are starting out, they rarely do. You might want to look here for a template for a full body workout. Do the workout two or three times a week on non-consecutive days. At 18 you have a fast metabolism, so...

After a bit of scan of the internet, for weight training tips, i recently found out that my method of using every machine in the gym, therefore working every mus...
