  1. i can't remember where i read it online but it was a biography of jet li. he's legit. he was the national martial arts champ (adult open division) by the time he was 12 i think? out of any actor who does martial arts, chuck norris included, i think jet li could more than hold his own in the ufc. if i can find the link i'll post it. it was amazing to read how he grew up and bascially stopped going to academic school and was made to just train all day everyday as a kid.
  2. i (for the most part) keep track of how many calories/carbs/protein/g of fat i get each day. since olive oil and nuts are considered 'good' fat for you how would you keep track of grams of fat? like if i ate some ice cream (sorry, not vegan but veggie for 13 yrs!) i would count that fat in my total for the day but since nuts and the like are good for you would you put their fat content in there as well? i hope i was clear with what i'm asking thanks guys! brett
  3. i've begun keeping track of what i'm eating (calories/fat calories/fat/protein/carbs) my question is what is the ratio of calories to calories to fat that i should be looking for? i'm trying to get about 3000 calories a day so how many of those should be calories from fat? i know the less the better but what's ideal, in general? thanks brett
  4. i took the last month off of training and will get back into it this coming week...i'm going for a mon/wed/fri full body workout. i'd like some comments on my routine and what you'd change... mon flat bench press (alt. dumbbell/barbell after a few weeks) seated rows dumbbell arnold press barbell squat standing calf raise preacher curl tri pull down wed incline bench press pull ups/lat pull down dumbbell front and side raise (super set) barbell deadlift seated calf raise hammer curl skull crusher fri decline bench press bent over rows upright rows and shrugs (super set) lunges hamstring curl/quad extension (super set, light) incline curls close grip bench press keep in mind i will be mixing up the amount of sets/reps for each exercise and how i do them (dumbbell/barbell/machine) and abs will be done on all 3 days. i play soccer matches on tues/thurs so that is a heavy duty workout as well as super cardio cheers brett
  5. put your finger on your right nipple and go straight up till you hit your collarbone, now move your finger to the right toward your arm about 2 inches. right about there. now that i do that and really press and imagine where the pain is when i do it, i'm thinking it's in my shoulder muscle? i'll consult someone in person pretty soon but i thought since i was sitting here looking on this board i should go ahead and ask. thanks brett
  6. recently whenever i do dips i get this sharp pain right under my collar bone on the right side. it's only on that side and it's only when i do dips, nothing else. never even had that area pulled/strained before, not that i've noticed at least. any clue why/how this has happened and what i can do to correct it. someone told me it could be because it's a weak spot on my chest muscle and doing more incline bench would help. but i've been doing dips for a long time and have never had this problem till about a month ago. thanks brett
  7. i ate some more before bed so edit what i had posted to: calories: 1882 from fat: 320 protein: 116g carbs: 193g thanks!
  8. i'm always at the gym and i gained well (5'9", 160lbs). i want to really get cut so my main question is what is the best protein to carb ratio in you diet? i remember reading about 1:1.5 or 1:2. like if you ate 100g protein you would eat about 150g or 200g carbs. is that correct? here is what i ate today. i know i need more protein (this is my first day actually counting) so besides that is everything else in order? calories: 1642 calories from fat: 245 protein: 107g carbs: 160g thanks! brett
  9. i've been lifting for a year now. always have been doing splits (chest/tri, back/bi, shoulder, legs or something similar) i took a week off and now i'm going to try a full body workout split into two days. this is how my week looks tell me what you guys think or what i shouldn't include or if i should include something i'm missing thanks! brett monday SET A deadlift leg curl for hamstring flat bench press seated row bicep exercise (how often should i change which one i do? same with tricep) tricep work out tuesday SET B squat leg extension lat pull down shoulder press upright rows do all the above for 2 sets of 15 wednesday cardio and abs thursday do Set A but 3 sets of 12 reps friday do Set B 3 sets of 12 reps sat/sun off i've only just begun this last week but i feel i'm missing something. not enough for the chest maybe? should i perhaps add in incline bench press on one of the days? i do a little cardio and abs on each day anyway so dont think i'm lacking on the days i didn't put that in? and one other thing. can/should i change up the exercises every week. like instead of doing upright rows could i do shrugs ? any and all help is appreciated thanks
  10. i've read everywhere you should have somewhere between 1g and 1.5g of protein per body weight, sometimes even 2g. what i'm wondering and never have read is how much carbohydrates and fat should you intake? i'm 5'9" and 160lbs. i started lifting for the first time just about a year ago and i was at 140lbs. my body shape has changed a lot, in a good way. i want to refine my diet and make my muscles really stand out and look cut. so if anyone has any idea numbers wise how many grams of fat and carbs is good to be at that would help a lot. i'm not vegan, just vegetarian so i tend to eat a lot of cheese and pasta. i know there's a lot of carbs in pasta and fat in cheese, just seeing how much i need to cut out. thanks! brett
  11. hey jonathon..hardcore? where you from? i've heard of no comply..the band from cali? Sucide file were from boston and had the same singer..much better too. i know all the hxc bands..i've been going to shows and playing in bands for almost 13yrs now
  12. punk rock kids on here...good lookin out i'd be stoked to look like rollins someday. i've gained about 20lbs since i started lifting about 10months ago. just stick with it and you'll see results. go to the gym and be consistent. eating right helps too peace out
  13. LOTS of Danzig. as well as Madball, Cro Mags, Judge, Sick Of It All, Inside Out, Killing Time. those have been in heavy rotation for the past few months at the gym. angry stuff that gets you pumped to keep going
  14. gold's gym in west springfield, massachusetts open 24 hours except on weekends. one huge room with all the free weights and machines you can think of to train on. tons of treadmills and elipitcal (sp?) machines. plus lots of pretty ladies. most of the guys if not all are pretty huge too. i'm not a big guy at all but i enjoy going there and it's cheap ($20/month)
  15. here in the states on cable you can get fox soccer channel. it shows tons of EPL games, french ligue 1, bundesliga, us college soccer and some serie a. they do show sky sports news everyday as well which is nice. fox sports espanol shows tons of brazilian and argentine games as well. so with those two i pretty much watch soccer anytime i want. then if you get random foreign speaking channels you can see games like i get a portuguese channel.
