Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I need to get back into shape.

I used to go to the gym on and off but my membership ended and now I can't afford it every month and wondered if it would be cheaper to buy some dumbells and maybe a barbell and do it that way instead.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Hey guys am new to this section part of the forum (just realized about a month ago it existed, always wondered if I was the only one that workout here), am 23 years old. I have being going to the gym on and off for about almost 2 years (college kicked my ass, I know, there is no excuses). Last time I went is about a month ago. I was just wondering what supplements you guys use and if they work (I know that everyone is different). Am a hardgainer, I use,

-Serious Mass Protein by Optimum Nutrition (Taste great and definitely seen results)
-CellMass by BSN (Taste ok, good results)
-Opti-Man Multivitamin (One of the best Multi-vitamins out there IMO, bang for the buck)
-ZMA by Optimum Nutrition (Seen results, gives you crazy ass dreams though)
-Tribulus by Optimum Nutrition (Good results, more energy, got little aggressive attitude while on it)

I've tried NO supplements before (NO-Xplode, Xpand Extreme Pumpe -sample-, Super Pump, and Vassive NO. I think it is because I have a high tolerance for caffeine, drowsy meds, etc.... But no NO supplement has consistently worked for me. NO-Xplode by BSN worked for 1 day and then nothing the next day (yes I did use 3 scoops as it is the maximum you can use on NO-Xplode). Which NO supplements have you guys tried that work? I have just being eating a piece of Salmon (grilled) and with a good portion of white rice before I workout to give me energy (got insane energy from it when i used to worked out at 11:30pm at night after work).

The workout plan I follow (keep in mind this is just for 2 weeks routine, then I change it up):
Monday- Chest, Tris, and Abs (3 sets of everything, 10-12 reps for chest and tris, 40-70 reps on abs)
(Chest-Bench press, Incline bench press, Dumbell flye)
(Tris-"Skullcrusher," Overhead triceps extension, cable kickback)
(Abs-Cable kneeling)


Tuesday- Shoulders, Back, Traps (same as above)
(Shoulders-Dumbell military press, cable front raise, barbell upright row)
(Back- Cable seated row, Barbell bent row, Deadlift)
(Traps-Cable standing row, barbell shrug)


Wednesday- Back, Biceps, Forearms, and obliques (same as above on monday)
(Back-Lat pulldown, One-arm row)
(Biceps-Seated preacher curl, Standing dumbell bicep curl, Standing hammer curl)
(Forearms- Reverse barbell curl, Reverse wrist curl)
(Obliques- Plate side bend)


Thursday- Legs (same as above, 10-12 reps 3 sets, also 10 minute jog warmup before leg workout)
(Legs-Calf raise, Leg curl, Squats)

Friday- off

Saturday- off

Sunday-Jog on treadmill 30-45 minutes

Anything that needs to be fixed, added, or removed let me know. Would list what I eat but, its late right now, I will get to it later. Well I hope to be a regular in this section.

DID YOU NOT GET THE MEMO SON?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I wouldn't change a routine every 2 weeks. You need to stick with it for a couple of months. You may be making progress but you never give your routine a chance.
I've stopped buying "premade" creatine supplements and started buying the creatine in raw powder form. Same thing as what you buy but without the bullshit and price tag that come with it. Mix 5gm of creatine in with your pre and post workout shake. I bought a kg/2.2lbs of Creatine Mono for $29 and a kilo/2.2lbs of Creatine Tri Malate for $25. At 5gm a serve pre and post, 10g a day, the 2 kilos of creatine will last me 200 days for a little over $50. You'll need 4 tubs of CellMass to compete with that.

As for a pre-workout I've used Jack3d and been happy with that. Next time around I'm going to buy the raw powders myself and make my own. All these magical proprietry blends can be made very easily.

I keep changing it because of "muscle memory." I have heard about keeping the routine for a month or so. Since am a hardgainer, do you think doing the same routine will be more beneficial if I do it for a couple a months? Or does it matter? Also, I did not know about making your own blends. Sounds like something that I will take into consideration. I have heard nothing but great reviews from Jack3d. I think it is fairly cheap I heard too. Do you know by any chance where samples are available online? I just do not want to buy the whole container and not want it to work. I have given my NO supplements that do not work to my gym partner (Vassive-No worked for him the best) and I do not want to waste money like that. Furthermore, have you tried Animal M-Stak by Universal? It is for hardgainers, I heard and read 70% good results 30% decent to no results. Thank you.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

You are going to do similar exercises all the time no matter how much to try to change it up. You can always do heavy days and light days. Say one workout bench at 3x8 then the next you do 4x12. You're still working the muscle but putting different loads on it. I will usually stick with a routine for about 2-3 months depending on how I feel it's going for me. I started a new 3 day twice weekly split and I'm feeling great.
For instance today I did incline chest work and triceps - cable work/pushdowns etc, and in 3 days I'll do flat chest work and triceps with free weights.

Jack3d isn't expensive, I'm in Australia and it costs just over the $40 dollar mark. You may have to look around online to see if you can get a sample. Try a local supplement store. They maybe able to help you. I haven't tried any Universal products. I've been using a lot of Lg Sciences products lately. My local online supp supplier lives near my place so i go and see him for most of my products as he gives me a good deal. I think I may try a product called Natadrol soon. Many have spoken highly of it - "The ingredients in Natadrol are 100% non-steroidal yet may give all of the positive benefits of optimized hormone levels! " I'll need a PCT afterwards, should be interesting. Our customs are a lot stricter than the rest of the world. There are many over the counter products we can't get here. I'm off to Fiji in a couple of weeks and I'm going to see if I can some decent stuff while I'm there.

It is good to change up your routine, but how you change it up and how often is unique for every person. I know of alot of IFBB pros that do something different every week, and some that do the same things for months before changing. What matters is that you are challenging yourself. If you can finish the last rep of the last set without alot of effort, you need to up the weight. Your muscles do have "muscle memory" but its not obtained in 2 weeks.

Before I talk about this, know that I'm a supplement user... I use Jack3d also, and it is decent for one thing, it gives me a boost before I walk into the gym, whether its the "Proprietary blend" or the caffeine, doing it, IDK. Supplements aren't going to change what you are doing in the gym, or change your muscle growth enough to make a difference. Workout hard, eat right and you will see results. If you want to grow, eat alot, if you want to cut, don't eat alot. The types you eat need be changed up also depending on what you are doing, but I'm not getting into all that. Just remember, supplements don't do much. For the money, you are better off buying 10-20 bags of chicken breast than spending $60 - $100 on supplements. You WILL get more out of the chicken breasts.

I agree here, when my schedule is tight, I end up going to the gym 4 days in a row, and it tears me up. I normally go Saturday, Sunday, Monday, off Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and off Friday. My workout week starts on Saturday btw.
