I'm doing stronglifts now and I had to miss mondays session (m/w/f) and do it tuesday - I did my bench *and* pushups tuesday, then wednesday it was shoulder pres...

Not at college :) I work for a large IT company - they give us engineer titles but in my opinion its just a slightly advanced form of admin - we set up printer servers, create mailboxes - essentially when our customers create an office we are there to get it all running with equiptment, servers, net...

Bassel, you should read this article. http://healthcorrelator.blogspot.com/2009/12/half-hearted-atkins-diet-and.html If you're going to go low-carb, go low-carb. Don't do it half way. A diet rich in saturated fat may indeed be bad when it is also a diet even moderately rich in insulin-boosting, eas...

1. Base you training around compound lifts - Why o why did I stick with a split for my first 4-5 months despite being told otherwise :( 2. Work/learn proper form 3. Leave your ego outside. This is difficult for us guys. 4. You have to have some flexibility and cardio 5. You gotta eat if you want to...

May come across as "hey i'm new but im super educated and I concur with tim" but ....

if you are on low carb and load up on carbs just before a workout - I'd have thought thats not a good idea. it's called carb cycling, a lot of people swear by it. I've been trying it the last couple of weeks, seems to be working but it's a bit early to tell I thought that was still after the sessio...

If you are trying to get freaky ripped, the most important thing is to lose weight. Management of your workout meal nutrition is pretty much a fine point and not the key lever which will affect getting freaky ripped. (Not that there is anything wrong with optimizing workout nutrition...it's just no...

I did 6-7 weeks of low carb and it did work somewhat but I decided later to wait until my foundation was better, moved to full body like I've been told :) so going to work on squatting body weight and getting close to on bench, I want a 170k dead. Anyway... wont ramble on about goals, point is im ea...

That is why you hear fat people proudly talking about how they burned 1000 during their workout. It ain't happening Indeed - get this one in ear shot a lot. Then see them counting calories on the worst imaginable foods, AND going on very low carb then machine gunning their diet with a 3k calorie ni...

I'm on the bike for sprints - anything else feels like my 93kg ass is jumping on a steel block (no give) - I admire (maybe too strong a word... respect? :) ) people who can belt out the jump rope or do proper out door sprints but for me sitting on my ass using my legs is my fave HIIT I dunno - maybe...

HIIT on off days (stronglifts 5x5)

Hi guys - I've jumped over to Stronglifts 5x5 - I can't give you a decent answer as to why not starting strength just when I checked the resources stronglifts gave me a spreadsheet and warmup calc faster so I thought I'd put 3-4 months into it. Anyway - since my normal routine is Mon/Tue/Thurs/Fri a...
