Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

still don't need energy drinks. In fact energy drinks spike you blood sugar, which in turn spikes your insulin level and leaves you feeling sluggish.

sports drinks =/= energy drinks.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Fuck energy drinks. I don't understand how people can feel replenished and revitalized after drinking them. It's like candy in liquid form that gives you an unhealthy sensation running through your body, where the last thing you want to do is do anything physically taxing.

Water. It's free and good.

good luck

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

pretty much. i drink energy drinks for the caffeine and sugar to perk up when doing last minute assignments or listening to early morning lectures. Couldn't imagine anything worse than playing football after smashing down a red bull.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Lucozade Energy is actually a real nice boost after a tough workout. I don't use it all the time but it has a good amount of fast acting carbs to go along with my post-lifting meal (protein).

Apart from that, just drink water & milk. Fruit Juices are garbage.

I'll stick with eggs cause they're good to build muscle, but I'll probably just take boiled and scrambled. Can anyone give me an example of a good daily recipe? Every diet plan I'm finding is telling me to eat low fat, high carb stuff and the like. But I'm new to this stuff so I'm not sure what exactly to get, you know?

By the way, I'm 18. About 6'0 tall, and I'd say probably about 160lbs. I have no muscle definition, I'm just working on my abdomen right now, then I'll work on my arms and chest. I'm gonna start running in the morning and such.
Who mentioned energy drinks? I've never seen anyone work out while drinking energy drinks, I can't think of a single use for them and sports drinks are made for runners, usually with complex carbs to give them energy for running. You might want to use dextrose post training since your glycose storage (the part where your body takes energy for training) will be empty. By taking dextrose, you will recharge the storage without gaining fat.

Based on your stats I'd say you need a calory intake of 2500-3500, depending on genetics. Do you generally eat a lot or not that much (judging by your weight gives me the latter impression but every body is different so I can't say for sure)? Post your whole daily diet.

When you start out it's mandatory to train your whole body since the gains you'll get in your first six months will be your biggest ones you'll ever get, also called "noob gains" and it makes the most sense to train a lot of bodyparts during that time period. Neglecting legs is the reason most people don't ever get a decent look since the bigger the bodypart = the more testosterone the body produces, and legs are obviously HUGE. Not to mention it's extremely unhealthy and looks very disproportionate after a few years of training.

Eat under maintenance, do weights 3-4 days a week, do different body parts every day. Add in 30min of cardio a day.

is it really that hard?
Fixed that one part, training 5 times a week as a natty is more of a hinderance than help, 3-4 times a week gives better results by far, only pro bbs and fitness models train 5 days a week, or even more. There's no need to train a body part more than once a week or at least within a range of less than 5 days but I think you meant that by doing different bodyparts every day.

I wouldnt recommend a beginner to do a 5 day split right away, but you can still make great gains naturaly on a 5 day split without over training
