Yea, probably too much caffeine I know, but I never get cramps. Caffeine is a diuretic, and will flush water out of your system, so that is a common cause of cramps. Austin, how much water do you drink per day? No flame, just curious.

Everyone is different.


More then enough, at least seven bottles of 750 ML's of water.

Austin, as far as running goes, he's right that bodybuilders don't run. Keep in mind what "bodybuilder" means, it most definitely doesn't mean "staying physically fit and being as healthy as possible". Being "physically fit" requires cardio, most any sport does as well, but that's not bodybuilding.

This is a bodybuilding discussion though, not gym class fitness tests.

On another side note, No Xplode does work, without a doubt, it's caffeine and arginine, those things both increase stamina while lifting. It's JUST caffeine and arginine though, all this talk about No Xplode "cycles" and the like is laughable and tells me you might be buying into the marketing of "No Xplode's gonna make you fuckin huge bro!" a little too much. It's caffeine and arginine, it works. It's not roids, BSN has no "magic" formula, you can get those 2 ingredients cheap if you like their effect on your workouts.

Austin, good to know you're seeing results but up to 3 hours in the gym 5 times a week is never a good idea, even if you're on roids that's a pretty outrageous amount of time and tells me you're not lifting heavy. Heavy as in, heavy for you, DIFFICULT.

As for me being cocky, well hell, I'm in the best shape of my life and it's because of the training I've done. Having someone tell me I don't know what I'm doing is beyond fucking retarded. I know what I'm doing...
#1: No shit on the supplement part. It's called cycling. You really think I didn't do it properly? There's not much of a need to cycle BSN's NO though.

I'm telling you that all those supplements really don't mean much (NO & Creatine). Supplements are supposed to be just that to your diet: supplements to help you obtain your nutritional needs. No product has magical effects and wont bring you results alone. It comes first and foremost through a good diet.

The only real supplements you need to take is a good whey protein shake and arguably a multi-vitamin; that's it.

#2: Just because you're seeing results doesn't mean you're doing it right. I'm not saying what's right for me is right for you but I'd check your technique on your lifts. You really don't have much of a clue what you're talking about cardio wise which is leading me to believe you struggle with the concepts of weightlifting. Chances are with you running the way you do that you aren't as strong as you'd like to believe, your technique isn't as great as it appears, and your diet is lacking a sound foundation.

I'm not accusing you of anything nor do I know you personally or your training personally but any beginner to weightlifting can make gains doing what you do with absolutely no knowledge.

I'm not so sure about this "no running on steroids business". Bodybuilders don't run because it's counterproductive for what they're trying to do, but there are plenty of athletes that have to run A LOT that use steroids.

My argument all along was that walking at a steady pace on a steep incline will burn more fat & keep more lean muscle mass at the same time. That's all I'm trying to get across really.

Nothing he said has been all that tragically wrong but I felt the need to shine some wisdom (not that mine means anymore than anyone else's).

I mean I can't even begin to comprehend some of his logic.

He thinks WALKING is better then RUNNING...is he high?
Be careful.

This used to be a civilised discussion, trust the "wrestling fans" to come along and ruin it. Save the trash talk for the wrestling section where an opinion is just that - an opinion.

NO X-Plode is a good entry level product. There are much better products out there. No real supplement seller will recommend it.

Best cardio imo is running. You could also go swimming to exercise all your muscles.
16, 5'11 and 85 kilos. Although I'm chubby.

I run sometimes, although I do the excercise bike 25 minutes a day plus various other excercises. I'm full dieting meaning no junk foods (chips, chocolate, lollies etc.), minimal eating alltogether and eating loads of fruit instead.

If you've never heard of it, Google it. You'll burn a shitload more fat than regular running or walking, and there is a lot of evidence to back this up, it's not an opinion.
Also when training, have short rest periods of 60 seconds between each set. This'll keep your metabolism working harder.

Wearing a jumper offers no benefit. You should be keeping up your water intake as it helps digest your food and flushes away toxins in the body.

Nice set up Brute. Make sure you put it to good use. Maybe add a couple of more attachment for the pulley's over time to hit your muscles from every angle.
Thanks for the heads up. I always believed the more you sweat the better.

I know some of you might not believe it knowing the long reviews I write-out on here but I am such a gym junkie.

Five days a week, 2-3 hours a day. Some say it's too long but fuck that, I make sure my muscles get the nutrients and lost fluid they need inbetween with breaks.

I just bought No-XPLODE for more energy and it's fucking incredible. No wonder it's so popular.

I love it.

The gym is my life...and oh yeah, I kind of enjoy Wrestling as well.

By the way, Invincible, RUNNING "IS" The best cardio to do in losing fat. It's been proven, so you were right.

I do that every day for 30 mins, run almost 5 K as I am going full out for at least 22 of those 30 minutes, at a pace not many could do and it took me two long years to get in shape to do this regularly.
Obviously I can't run as well as you can, but thanks for the tips I will take all this into consideration. Although tonight I'm bummed out, I might just do crunches and the exercise bike.

Steroids stress the heart, period... bodybuilders (many of which are close friends of mine) don't run or do any strenuous cardio because it adds extra stress to the heart. This is known to cause enlargement of the heart possibly leading to heart attack.

Running will eat away at your muscle only if you run miles at a time, not by doing HIIT or short wind sprints.

BTW, this is FACT, I'm not making it up.

I saw that running was being discussed--so as a runner I wanted to chime in. This is a staying in shape thread, after all.

Combine that with running or any other intense cardio, and you are at risk of your heart enlarging (common cause of death with alot of wrestlers). That's why most bodybuilders will do multiple 30 minute walking cardio sessions when they are in their contest prep. And yes, this is FACT.

I didn't cut anything off. I quoted the first sentence and removed the rest which wasn't relevant.
