What sort of lifestyle do you have? What sort of diet do you undertake? How much exercise do you do? Exercise etc...

I'm going to be making/organising a plan for myself soon, was just curious about other people.

Thanks.
All I do is cycle though I also enjoy doing the occasional bit of weights / squat work. I used to take running quite seriously but I didn't find it enjoyable enough to continue so now I just hop on the bike and enjoy the experience. My advice for starting a training plan would be to work hard, eat hard. I have never followed a strict diet and don't intend to anytime soon - I see tasty food as a reward for climbing up some bad-ass hills. However different things work for different people - I just have an enormous sweet tooth and so it forced me to work out quite hard.

Sorry to use you as an example Kenny, you were the closest one, but we get the same questions all the time. That's the mian reason I don't bother with this thread as much as I used to.

Conjugated linoleic acid. CLA is used for weight loss. Never used it myself but i've been interested in trying it down the track.

I'm currently in a bulking phase using Natadrol and Methyl 1-D. Been on it for about 4 weeks now and most of my lifts have increased by 10-12%. I have another 4 weeks and I'll see how I go once I'm of it. The Natadrol is a "non-steroidal androgen" and the Methyl 1-D is used for Post Cycle Therapy.

does anyone know how important carbs are to build muscle? i heard different things from 1.7grams of carbs per bodyweight up to 4 grams of carbs per bodyweight lb. i'am 150 pounds and i'am taking around like 260 carbs a day. not sure if i need to up it. also anyone know about macro ratios, i heard 40% protein, 40% carbs, and 20% fat, and others who say 50% carbs, 30% protien, 20% fat, not sure which is the best one.

Carbs don't build muscle, protein does. Carbs are used as energy. All these sports drinks you buy like Powerade, Gatorade etc are carb based. The only time I incresemy carb intake is in my post workout shake, I add about 50-60g of dextrose (natural sugar) to help the delivery of the protein where it's needed. Dextrose is a key ingredient in a lot of bodybuiling supplements, especialy protein powers and creatine. Thing is it's a very cheap product to buy. In Australia it's less than $5 for 500g. A lot of your "weight gain" powders will have dextrose in them, as do creatine supps to help the uptake through your body.
I'm trying to find the ad for a Muscle Tech creatine where they advertise the fact it's full of dextrose to help the creatine. You're better off buy raw creatine and adding a scoop of dextrose yourself than buying their prodcut. Same with protein powders, buy a low carb protein, have it during the day and add a scoop of dextrose to your pre and post workout shakes.

You need carbs, plain and simple. Just keep your fat intake low. Not sure what I eat, I don't bother counting. I use the mirror as a guide.

Found the Muscletech ad. Celltech Hardcore. Advertised as 10,000mg of creatine - which is a fancy way of saying 10grams - and 75 grams of dextrose. Again, cheaper to buy a straight creatine power and add dextrose.

So, here's my new split that I'm digging a lot

Day 1 - Shoulders/Back
Day 2 - Legs
Day 3 - Off
Day 4 - Chest/Triceps
Day 5 - Shoulders/Back
Day 6 - Legs
Day 7 - Off

For anyone wondering, I get a lot of my chest size from incline db presses and weighted dips. Flat bench might be the most overrated chest mass building exercise. That is of course my 2 cents as I know a lot of people want to know how to build a thick and dense chest.

Anyways, my main focus right now is building up my incline db press to the 120 lbers for 8 reps, weighted pull ups, weighted dips, and squatting 385 at proper powerlifting depth.

Yeah. Exactly how I feel. People should do some research then if they don't understand the information, that is when they should post for some help. Seems as though a lot of people put in little to no effort but expect some of the veteran recreational lifters to piece together a diet and training program for them. Tis' a shame.

Nice. I've read up on that a bit and know a couple of guys that use natadrol. None of that stuff is for me but let me know how it goes.

It is extremely difficult to give advice with no background information. How active are you? What is your weight, height, body type? Tell me a little bit about your diet, your goals, etc,.

Generally for a guy like me that stays in fitness model condition, I try to get about 300 g of carbs and 1 g of protein per lb of bodyweight. 2 g of protein per lb of bodyweight is a bit excessive.

Of course consuming 2 g/per lb of bodyweight isn't bad but you can consume the same amount of calories in a day by lowering the protein intake and upping CHO's and receive more benefits.

About to pound out a session on the indoor trainer - putting on the athletics for motivation:

planned 2 sets of 2 mile, 1 mile, half mile

Hoping for 2 mile efforts in under 4 minutes, 1 mile efforts in under 1:55 and half mile efforts in under 55.

Will report back after the blood, sweat and tears.... well mostly just sweat but whatever.
