Re: when weights get heavier.barbell curls

Just out of curiosity, how many days a week do you work out? Does ABA BAB mean you work out 6 days a week? Or is that 3 days a week for a cycle of 2 weeks?

Also, how often do you work out your legs? And what does your leg workout look like?

Re: when weights get heavier.barbell curls

I would say that all depends on your goals. Typically 8-10 rep sets are when you're trying to gain mass or "get a pump." If you're goal is to gain strength stay with sets of 5. I would also start learning about the difference between progressive linear loading (adding a fixed amount of wei...

Re: Fruit vs cutting

Getting "ripped" or "cut" is all about calories in vs. calories out. I find that eating a lot of carbs makes it harder to control calorie intake, but carbs in and of themselves aren't bad. However, at 126 lbs and 5'6" I don't think you'll look very cut if you achieve a low B...

Re: when weights get heavier.barbell curls

should i lift even when my arms are tired and try to finish those reps? That's the difference between being successful and failing. When you're tired, that's when it can be the most important to finish those reps. And with barbell curls, if 5kg isn't working, trying 2.5kg at a time. The bicep is a ...

Re: Looking to lose fat & lift to build muscle

My thighs/butt are way too fat/thick for my liking, so I've been doing a lot of cardio and eating at a huge deficit in hopes of losing that fat. I'm also, however, looking to lift to build muscle, but I'm not sure how exactly I should eat in order to achieve both goals at the same time. I've lost 6...

Re: Hi from South Carolina

Wonderful Job and a great story! How did you find juicing for 60 days? I did it for two and started to gag at the thought of it. I really admire you sticking with it John. Is your wife Vegan too - what a great support to you she is! She has probably saved your life :) I've always been able to eat/d...

Thanks man! When I finished loosing the weight, my wife looked at me and said "There you are! Where did you go for the last seven years." It made all the sacrifice worth it.

Re: Anyone get grief mentioning youre vegan? Trying to deal

I know I'm a little late to this party, but here's my take on it (and I apologize in advance for the novel)... First off, I want to accurately portray myself... I am not a vegan. I don't claim to be. I also don't have a problem with people who are vegan; I just don't personally believe strongly in c...

Posted this in response to another thread, figured I'd add it here too. http://www.proteinpow.com The website is all about using protein powder in different ways. Lots of good ideas. Some of the stuff has too much sugar and fat in it, but a lot of the stuff is really good, like the cake sandwiches t...

I saw that thread and have read through most of it, lots of awesome stuff in there. I just didn't want to hijack your thread, especially since it's called "MF's Recipes..." I couldn't just go adding mine in there, that wouldn't be proper :wink:
