I will. Though I quite literally can't start now( Literally ) since I've run out of food. Can't build muscle without food. Tomorrow I'm going shopping for food. So I can indeed start tomorrow.

Though that just includes pumping iron( Which I need an decent amount of protein to eat after which I don't have ATM). But I will do some sit-ups.

So. You say rice is the best carb? Over Pasta? What kind of rice? I'll see what I can pick up.

So far. I'll try and pick up potatoes, spinach, a little bit of soymilk for the mornings( Along with Bananas ), and from there whatever else.

What about rice pasta? Same as rice?

Anyways. Expect a sit-up update soon.

Update:


Just did 50 sit-ups. 25 first. 2 minutes rest. 25 more.


Guess that means you need to do 100. =P.

Damn. I was out of breath after all that. I need to keep at it so I can get better.

things like pasta, bread and bagels are full of additives like flour, sugar, sodium and just a lot of crap.


I usually only buy Pasta with one ingredient. The flour it's made with. And it must be Organic. I quit Generic Pasta years ago( Maybe a year and a half or two ).

I'm also looking into getting a home pasta maker. And perhaps making my own out of Hemp and Quinoa. Processed Pasta. No thanks. Every time I had that junk I got sick.

I will try and incorporate more grains too.



Next set of abs in the morning. I will attempt to double my output. Push, Push, Push :twisted:.



I read a source( Well. Meaning a friend on another forum ) who suggested abdominal workouts being best hit on everyday of the week but one. That the abdominals are the fastest healing muscle group. So for example M-S with Sunday being a restful day seems like the best output.

Curious what you all think.

I myself will attempt that. Doing it morning and night is probably not necessary.

Update: 11:01 AM

Well. I wasn't able to do 100. More like 37. Must still be tired from yesterday. Since I'm still relatively new at this. I'm going to try and maintain the 50 x abs a day through December. Starting January it kicks up to 100 X a day( Always minus Sunday for rest...since Sunday is after all the least active day of the week ).

Form

Abs-25 X 1
Rest 3 minutes

Abs-11 X 1

Absolutely. Starting tomorrow. Late afternoon or early morning. Depending on the answer to this question.


Is it required to bulk eat/eat a lot of protein after push-ups or is that just for heavy ass lifters?

Yeah. I'm not too good with the Push-Ups either. Just 10 felt like hell. Though I managed to do 25.

So. Got any advice on simple leg exercises? I got push-ups( Arms ) and sit-ups( Abs ). What's the "definitive" leg exercise?

lolz. Thanks. Cool vid. They looked silly but it looks like fun. That would be a good thing to do in-between while I'm resting.


What are lunges good for? Legs too I'm guessing. But how do they compare to squats?

False. Lunges are the BEST exercise to hit all leg muscles IMO. They hit everything... There are so many variations on a lunge also. Forward lunges, reverse lunges, stationary lunges... and my personal favorite walking lunges... walking lunges with dumbbells, walking lunges with a barbell, walking lunges with a weight plate over your head. Lunges with one leg on a bench. Lunges are the BEST.

It will be a trip through Hell. But hopefully this month will be the Month to get in shape. And starting January( The new year ). A new chapter. And possibly a gym membership to further improve my progress through bulking.


My Diet still needs fine tuning. I'll need to improve on that. I'd say the budget is pretty shitty. Around 10-15 bucks a week( If I'm lucky ).

So far. I've bought two half gallon things of soymilk( To have a shake every morning ) 3 pounds of Tofu( To be cut in half ), Potatoes( 3-4 a day ), Beans, Whole Wheat flour( which is left over ). And Mum's at the store buying the generic stuff for the family which I'll have to use. Like Non-Organic Veggies and Bananas. Eh. I take what I can get. For now.





Just for fun. My Optimum diet( What I'd be eating if I was bulking ).

Morning:
Main Meal:From 5-6am.
A pound of Pasta( Home Made ) cooked with A Pound of Tofu and a Pound of Spinach. Cooked in Home Made Pasta Sauce( Home Grown Tomatoes, Home Grown Cinnamon for a slight hint, a dash of sea salt ).

Drink-From 7-9am: A Half-Gallon of Soymilk( Home Made ) made into a super shake. No added sweetners.Flavored entirely with fresh fruit, and Organic, Fresh Coffee Beans. Washed first then added into blender( Not sure if you absolutely must cook/turn it into coffee directly. I'd imagine the coffee bean itself washed and blended into a cold drink would taste heavenly ) to make a super protein fruit ass kicker.

Afternoon:( What I'd probably be eating at work at lunch break ).
Lunch-From 12-2PM: Super Nut Mix. Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, Cashews( Heck a bunch of em ) and raisins. No need for salt.

Drink-Right after: A super Fruit Shake( Random Fruits. Strawberries, Oranges, Grapes, Apples, Plums...whatever you can imagine....juiced ).

Snack before heading into gym.
Super Protein Shake
A Half-Gallon Soymilk, Hemp Protein Powder, A little bit of fruit( For taste ).

Dinner: Between 8-10 PM
Two Shakes. A super Veggie one and a Super Fruit one.

Wow/ Really? 6-350 calorie meals a day? That sounds kinda boring. I must admit. I can drink a half a gallon of soymilk( which would be about 800 calories ) and then do it again and in an hour I'm hungry.

I can eat a pound of Pasta( Which...Google is correct. It's usually either 1600 to 1700 calories )...on top of having tofu in there. And in two to three hours I'm hungry again.

I must have a bottomless stomach. =p.

I should google what counts as a 350 calorie meal. Or just see what some of the bulkers on here eat. And then fallow there advice.
