Supplementation: is it to early to take now?

Hi, Quick question. I need to drop BF%. Ultimate goal is to compete in fitness model contest. Since I'm new to weight training should I be using supplements that help build/repair muscle now or weight till I have less body fat? I currently only use raw protein powder as recovery after weights/cardio...

Protein powder frequency question

Hey all. Question regarding protein shakes. I use one protein shake as recovery after my workout daily. 1 banana 1 scoop powder (25 grams) soy milk (1 1/2 cup: 12 grams). I only have one daily. I weigh 150 currently and actually am trying to reduce body fat %. I weight train daily and do HIIT traini...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

Ok. So I would like to respond to the blatant argument that has become this thread. It's foolish and petty and totally off topic. Unless you are responding to my original post, please refrain from continueing this argument. I'd greatly appreciate that. Thank you. :)

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

Yes, agreed. I met Giacomo and he is pretty massive. His fiancee does it with him, though I haven't met her. I think it is awesome, and eventually I think that will be where I go. Maybe after I move somewhere warm, or if I had someone as a mentor to share/ask questions then I can possibly do it now....

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

beansnbroccoli, just as a heads up I never implied that women tend to hold fat more so then men. I was advising how my body holds onto fat, and that is definitively related to genetics since my family is all obese or overweight. I have the same exact shape as my mother did when she was young, so gen...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

So how about raw vegan body builders? I can imagine they are using other food sources that don't rely on tofu or seitan. When looking at the chart, I think the 30% female figure is the best: since she is te most curvy. I personally am quite similar to her shape just thinner. Luckily for me I won't l...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

I actually do have a journal or more preferably a workout book I use to write out all my exercises down in. But it looks like after I wrote back to my trainer with my new concern to drop fat and still tone he decided to have me do giant sets. Today we did full body workout and I completed my workout...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

jamesxvx, I am looking to bodybuild so that I can eventually model. So that's my ultimate goal. But I just sent an email to my trainer to advise that after today's workout I reassessed things, and really want to focus on dropping weight rather then build at this point. Either way I will lean out, bu...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

If I followed the BMI calculator then I would be considered overweight which I'm not, since this measure does not account for muscle. I don't want to hold onto fat in my thighs and butt, I just do. This is my problem zone. I don't look at all, but my body composition according to the analyzer says m...

Re: Carbs/fat reduction/body building

I've been doing a mix of bodyrock and Turbofire prior to adding weight training over the last 4 or so months. During this time I was over eating still (just figured this out recently) along with still a lot of sugar. Since the beginning of January I really cleaned up my act with regards to eating cl...

Carbs/fat reduction/body building

Hi all, I just started training with weights this week at the gym. I took the body fat analyzer and I am pretty high fat % at 33. (I don't exactly agree with this since I have reduced overall fat in the last 4 months or so) but for argument sake lets say that I am this amount. I am currently 150 lbs...
