three workouts in one day? that's cool. but how the hell do you manage to work your chest first and later your triceps. Isolation movements only?

What about organic food bars? Larabar's are great, but it seems like they're lacking in protein, and pretty high in calories, fat, and sugar. I understand they're raw, and delicious. I guess I just feel guilty eating any bars. Sorry, i'm posting this in your eating log.

Yeah the tricep and legs were isolation only.

threeloaves: I cannot get all the healthy stuff like different food/bars here in AL so I stick with what I can get. I dont wanna have another CC as long as I shall live, so internet ordering is out too. Also, you say its high in fat and sugar but most of them only have 3 ingredients: almonds, dates, and what ever main flavor(fruit) the bar is. If I ate this separately Id get the same amount if not more cals,fat,sugar, etc. Protein is not a main concern for me.

I didn't mean to criticize. It was more of a question, and i was curious as to what your opinion was on bars. It seems as though people get stressed out about the calories, and sugar content of them. I'm still a wimpy slag, and don't concern myself with counting anything. Im more focused on eating nutrient dense foods. But, It becomes tiresome cooking 4 + meals a day, and figuring out what to take to work.

With a pound of baby red potatoes and pancakes, no wonder you can lift in the morning! Do you have energy after eating all of that at night? Or has your body learned to handle the insulin spike from the potatoes and the syrup from the pancakes? Push it right into the glycogen stores for tomorrow's workout perhaps?

Actually I dont feel the spike like I would if I ate candy or something with bad sugars in it. This was last night(hence the time). Im eating low-budget and thats what I had around. I ate all but two of those potatoes. Carb on carb filled me up quick.

Hey octo, what is this naked protein?
I am looking for a cheap, well not cheap just cheaper, protein shake.
Right now I am paying 45 to 35 for 4lbs, depending on where I go.
Just looking for more options

We gotta learn to see the beauty in each moment of life
Everyone has different pasts and we're seeking the light
The world is divided between peasants and kings
But the truth is everyone is looking for the same thing
