Re: No progress

Hey Charlie I think bumping up your protein intake is definitely a huge must. Remember that you can still have lots of protein in your diet and still be vegitarian, it's just not going to be natural protein obviously. You're just going to have to be drinking protein drinks with non-milk based protei...

Re: Eat this to keep muscles strong

Well really what this contains is fiber. So basically what you are saying is that fiber could help prevent muscle weakening? Sounds legitimate but is there any more evidence around it?

We know that fiber is definitely good for a healthy body, this would definitely be another good quality of it!

Re: Bent over bb rows

Personally I do 90 degrees and just keep my back as firm as possible, and I also keep the bar as close to my body as possible like mentioned above in the 45 degree recommendation post. I guess like they said it's all what you feel more comfortable with and what you feel working your muscles better. ...

Re: Vegetarian newbie

I agree with Gulliver that light weight training is a great place to start, along with pull-ups and push-ups. If you can't do pull-ups then do the assisted pull-ups with the machine. Since you are wanting to focus on your elbow area you are going to be wanting to do some good arm exercises, biceps, ...

Re: How do you pull through a tough workout on little sleep?

It's funny this topic came up because I'm sitting here not knowing if I should go to the gym or not. I got about an hour or sleep last night and feel a little nauseous from it (part of that being I drank for the first time in like a year for st pattys day) - and when I imagine working out right now ...

Re: What Are You Doing To Work Your Abs ?

I try to do a mix of everything, but mostly I'll just do ab exercises.

Some examples are crunches, situps, bicycle kicks, leg raises, planks, etc.

Every once in a while i'll do the ab machines, but I try to do high reps with them so that it really burns the abs.

Re: Workout finishers?

IRV, I do something along the same lines as you do. I'll do something low weight high rep that BURNS. For example for curls I will do the 45 pound bar 50 times, without putting it down at all and no more than 5 second breaks (of holding it). Or I will do like 500 curls while walking on the treadmill...

Re: Walking Prevents Shrinkage

I agree six miles a week is nothing. Why not try doing like 2 miles a day - this would be even better. Do you think the more you walk the less chance you USB of brain shrinkage?

Re: how often/much do you drink?

Luckily for me I never drink - i don't even like it. I use to all the time but I guess I kind of grew out of it. It's horrible for your body and will definitely effect muscle growth.

Re: Unhealthy friends/family?

Luckily there is no one in my immediate family like this. I have to believe that if people in your family are like this then you are much likely more to follow suit and be obese like them. I'm glad I have a healthy family.

Someone might key your car or something but I doubt you'll get shot over this. I got to put it up.

Re: Fruit and Veggie diet for Bodybuilding

Unthinkable your fruit and veggie diet would be good with protein powders added. Why do you want to leave out the protein powder?
