Hi Stuward, thanks for your input, I already run a decent defecit and have lost 10-13lbs in maybe 7 weeks - this was quite easy, all I did was stop eating 4 bread every day and refuse 50% of the mental foods (takeout etc, I'll just eat a big meal before a stoner/drinking session instead :) ) I'll ta...

Please check my plan/diet (Fat loss/low carb)

Hi guys, I want a good stab at burning fat in an aggressive way (roaring and beating my chest before I eat.... errr... hmmm... ok not that kind) and am willing to work hard for 4-6 weeks to see results . My plan is to practically eliminate carbs except the 2 hour window after my workouts. So... My p...

Re: 10x10?? are you serious?

it's maybe not necessary for a newb, but i tried it and it works. It really really works. Try doing 10x10 with squats with one minute (be strict about that) between sets. I made the best (size) gains of my life doing that. Your on ;) - Im going to do this for 6 weeks once per sunday (I also do leg ...

That is exactly what I do if I'm looking to bring up something. Start upping the frequency and the calories. It works very well... Not sure why you think the opposite. Just an example of the conflicting information I get between the gym peeps, here, and reading incorrect examples (i.e. "you're a be...

No rack - next best thing for squats?

I'll keep it short - at the start of May I plan to do starting strength - but I only have 22kg bells (50lb) and a smith machine in my work gym. So what do I do? to put it simply... Do I get the bar on my shoulders and play it VERY safe? do I set up an area behind me thats 99% safe to bail onto (if t...
