The chest seems to be the difficult muscle to grow for most people mate just keep at it :)
Ahh okay probably a good call, I really admire your patience man if I'm honest I probably would just bench anyway :p
All good here dude cheers

so now that the weather is finally improving im back out on my bike, which is a very good thing. but this was before i started lifting. so im worried how ill be able to get big miles under my belt and still gain muscle. i dont cycle hard just like to pootle along but for long distances so my hr doesnt get to high too often. i burn an average of 50ish calories a mile so if i go say 20 miles ill need to eat another 1000cal to make up the deficit, i understand carbs before hand will build up stores to burn when im cycling and protein after will heal muscle damage as normal, is this enough?

on a side note i had a look at chris hoys training (as his lowerbody at least is fricking rediculous), he can leg press 631kg, thats just under 100 stone for gods sake.

boooo how can someone become a hero and then break your heart in one day, im planning on getting up to 2+hours a few times a week, would that affect muscle growth?

haha, i had the same feeling with lance armstrong.........i think at a low intensity youll be fine, i cycle quite alot but as long as i do it slowly/low intensity it doesnt seem to affect weight training strength etc........ as soon as i start pushing it hard though i start to get really thin, lose muscle as well as fat!

definitely, hes the biggest ass hole in history, he made out hes all amazing by beating cancer, but the juice works just as well on cancer cells as muscle.

do you eat/drink any more than non cycling days?

Yea gears are cheating, I treated my self to a no logo one, was about £300 before I stated customising, but I'd love a bianchi, some hills around here are a bitch but ive clocked up 40+mph on the way down before so it has it's benefits, it's not too bad, got a bench day tomorrow so I'm gonna start light and stop if I feel anything bad.
