How much do you think enough is? Because I'd recommend consuming way over 100g a day. I need more detail on the routine and the food your eating to be able to help you out.

You don't increase the weight every time, lets say you bench pressing and your goal is to be able to do 5 solid reps with 225lb. You don't try to do 230lb 5 times the next time you work out you keep with the 225 until you reach your goal then you increase the weight. Hit the cardio, eat a balanced d...

Agreed, toned is a stupid term. Also we might as well consider this guy a beginner. If he has been lifting very light, that's not going to do much of anything. Therefore he is still untrained. More than 12 reps is endurance, it will have little to no effect on body composition. So if you want to ch...

The word 'toned' is such a generic term that I hate when people use it because it can imply a number of different things since everyone has their own definition of what 'toned' means. When I think of 'toned' I think of 99.9% of the population who have the ability to accomplish daily tasks (walking, ...

In my best opinion I'd cut out deadlifting all together and use machines that could possibly work those muscles involved in that type of lift. Or if you do deside to continue use a belt and be very careful/controlled with the lift and don't ever try to find your 1rm. If you feel undesirable sensatio...

If you havn't already add caffeine to your diet as well as a good multivitamin and fish oil capsules, take about 1-3 grams of it a day by adding with meals or just one in the morning. Said to help with weightloss and increase in energy.

How much are you lifting when you are doing your rows if you have to use straps? I can easily lift over 400 lbs (deadlifts not rows) without those but I do need a little chalk . I do got to say that the angle at which you are doing the exercise is a big factor, but it is still relatively important a...

Typically when it comes to rows I like to mix it up since I believe the changing the way you do the exercise adds emphasis on different parts of the back. What I mean is do bent over rows then do single bent over rows (dumbells). I've never experimented with the hand position using barbells but I ha...

I never was a big fan of the full body workout. I just don't think I'd hammer all the body parts enough in one work out to get end results from the workout. Im bigger fan of shoulders/back/traps then another day tri/chest and etc.

I wish I did know what you were talking about on that last handle you were trying to describe. But I do seem to have the ones that I would need and even a couple you never specified. Such as a chinning triangle which I have found to be great for cable rows and also the revolving stirrup handle. ----...

I work out whenever I get the chance at this period in time. Because of football and school its hard getting the time to put in a serious workout. Right now I get about 15 mins. in the gym before football, and I continously work my back since I need that to get built because I've always neglected it...
