Back and Bi’s( 2 to 3 exercises each) with 30 min. cardio
Chest/shoulders/Tris( 2-3 exercises...


You can do 15min of cardio instead of running at a constant pace you should do intervals(HIITs), works like wonders for me. And for Legs, workout your LEGS. They are the biggest muscle group in your body, next to back and chest. Legs make up half your entire body. Squats and deadlift should have been one of the first few things you learn when you start weightlifting. Also, when you get into squatting/deadlifting, try doing it without shoes on.

Try the Stronglifts 5x5 program, you will see your numbers go up FAST.

Has anyone every tried this Super Advanced Creatine high performance? Muscle Mass and strength fuel but body fortress??
I've never tried creatine but now that i have it i wanna use it.
Any suggestions? on when to take how much etc etc?

edit: would it be dumb to mix a scoop of it with my protein for post workout? And just drink it all in one shaker? Might taste like crap but who buys protein/creatine for taste tongueface

When i first used creatine, people told me to go on a "Loading phase" which was about 20g a day for a week and then do 5g after that first week.

I never really followed the whole "loading phase" thing, i used 5g a day for about 2-3months with my protein shakes or you can even put it in juice or milk or whatever you like.

How many scoops on ON protein do you guys take post workout? I used to take 2 but now i'm only taking one to save money haha.
My workout consists of 3x10's, cardio after. Sauna after that. and i usually take my protein right after cardio.
October 27, 2011 @ 04:00:48
^ I take 1 and a half scoop. I usually do cardio on a different day completely seperated from lifting, I forget where I got it from but doing cardio after lifting is bad, it's ideal to warmup with cardio but I find myself dead tired when I do it before a hard lift session..

arms day today:

<p>sam what supplements are you taking? I just finished my 5lb on pro complex and im looking into natures best isopure…</p>


all the basics. ON whey, ON casein, animal pak, creatine, and fish oil. I try to not rely on whey too much other than the times I'm cutting, I go apesh*t over those pre-grilled tyson chicken fillets.. probably go through 4 bags each week lol..

I need to try those pre-grilled tyson filets. I buy a big bag of chicken breasts from Costco and cook 8 or so at a time but having to do that 2 or 3 times a week gets old. Do those pre-grilled ones have a ton of sodium?

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

I never loaded it either, I read that the whole loading thing is BS to begin with. I did 5g a day, but honestly I didn't notice a difference at all, so I doubt I'll buy it again. I know some other people who didn't get anything out of it either.

October 30, 2011 @ 23:00:12
load up on the 20g for a week and drink at least a gallon of water a day, you'll definitely notice a difference

is there really anything wrong with just alternating upper and lower body every day? i have strength training at school where i do bench, incline and military then usually go to the gym and do decline, tricep machine and curl machine. then on lower days i do sled, leg extension and some calf things. i also just started running, about 1.4 miles whenever i get around to it durring the day.

anything i should really ad to this? should i try to split it up more? (ex: biceps/tricep day, chest back day, legs day)

what should i do for forearms and back?

IRONHEART 364S SIZE 32 forsale, pm me

You should give your muscles at least 72 hrs to rest. so for example if you work out your chest,triceps, shoulders on Monday. Don't work them out again till thursday.
November 02, 2011 @ 00:53:12
in that case my strength training teacher is a retard

If you could you should really split it up.. so let me get this right.. you do bench and do military presses at school and proceed to do arms later on the day at the gym?

CrossFit is the shit! Great workout and a great lifestyle to live. It's awesome how the people involved are so supportive and genuinely kind to one-another.

If anybody wants learn a bit more about it, they're replaying this year's CrossFit games sporadically on ESPN 2.
