I came across a GREAT thread on bodybuilding.com that I thought I would share.... some of you who are pretty into working out might get as much of a kick out of it as I did!

In short, it's a pro bodybuilder talking about his experiences growing up in a gym in Alberta in the early 90s. Some really funny (and interesting!) stuff.

what kind of multivitamins are you guys taking? I'm thinking about taking centrum total, is that alright for someone working out or should I go for Animal Pack or something?

And I've stopped drinking pop and fruit juice and only been drinking water for about 5 days and counting lol, is it bad to have too little sugar in my system cause I'm thinking that the multivitamins will take care of that and the food I eat.

i dunno man i think cutting out fruit juice altogether is a little extreme. real fruit juice is still good for you, it's full of vitamins and natural sugars that your body uses as fuel. you need enough sugar to fuel yourself, but too much sugar will turn into fat regardless, so you should limit it in places. for example when i'm thirsty during the day i'll drink water as opposed to pop or juice. in the morning though i'll still have my glass of OJ and after a workout i'll still have a glass of grape juice to restore my glucose levels.

how is cutting juice extreme?
any sugars or vitamins you need you get through the food you eat... you want 'good' sugars; eat fruit. take a look at the nutrition labels on any fruit juice and you'll see that they are loaded with calories and unwanted crap.
you are talking as if fruit juice is some kind of miracle drink... its water loaded with sugars and calories.

I eat a lot for breakfast then head to school ... warm-up (cardio mostly, but sometimes just stretches), then ballet and jazz. Then after, I go to the gym and do mostly biceps and abs stuffs before I eat my lunch w/ Syntha 6 protein shakes.

What vitamins/supplements you guys taking aside from protein shakes?

i'm looking to add some core exercises to my routine. i know people are pretty divided as far as isolating the core is concerned, but for those who do, what exercises have worked for you?

cardio abs in insanity works great, 16 minute workout just working on different abdominal exercises. You could probably pick a couple from the workout.

Ab Ripper X from P90X is great too

I did Ab Ripper X for a month and a half and it improved my core strength by a lot. It's quite hard the first time you do it. It took me about 2 weeks to get everything right.

Mmmm ... my goal was to start running and swimming again a month after I gave birth. One month later, I have yet to start. The new plan is to start by mid-March. Lets see how that goes.

Guys,

I have to be honest with you. Almost everything you have been taught by ANYONE who is trying to make a buck is untrue. Most of the guys on here are under 30 Strong, healthy your guys and girls that should be in good shape. If you want nutritional advice, stay the hell away from Bodybuilding BS.

Here's my advice in brief:

1. Diet

Basically you need to look at diet in an intelligent way. Depending upon your body type, the percentages can shift (you can research this on your own), but you basically need to look at sticking to a very basic dietary schedule that includes the basic food groups. The Shit you were taught in Public School.... thats the same schedule Olympic athletes use, they just have a much more complicated and structured regimen designed specifically for them by a team of nutritionists. For you guys, look at it this way, for you daily caloric intake;

60% Clean carbohydrates
30% Protein
10% fat.

Again, don't be lazy. You have Google, research what a clean carb is. Learn about proper protein sources and fat sources. LEARN WHAT FAT IS!

Your diet should be structured around your day, your training schedule. Again, LEARN. You want to get a bulk of your carbs loaded at least 4-5 hours before a work out, with a quick carb hit from a fruits or veggie snack about an hour before. Protein should always follow a workout. It's essential for proper muscle and neural repair.

2. Water

Water is absolutely essential. don't listen to what people tell you about too much. Nobody drinks to much. You need to learn to make drinking it a priority, before, during, and after any work out. our body is 70% water, we use water as major tool in maintaining our body through energy consumption, as well as in cooling our body during stressful times through sweat. You use a shit load of water, always. You need to keep it replenished.

3. Vitamins

Not one study has shown a significant enough gain from a multivitamin, ever, for a test group already eating a healthy balanced diet. If you are eating well, and still have the need, grab a Life brand multi from Shoppers. At least when you piss it all out, it will be at half the cost of the inflated centrum brand (which is the exact same in composition, trust me)

4. Supplements.

This is where things get dicey. You don't need them. 90% of them act as placebo's. If you need a little extra carb intact, a basic carb drink is fine, gobble it down with your carb intake 4-5 hours before a work out. Protein is the same, however, to much is bad. if you are unable to get the proper amount of protein in your diet for some reason, a basic Whey protien will be fine. DO NOT OVER DO IT. It's like many drubs, more does not = better. The right amount = better.

5. Sleep.

You want your diet to matter. On top of drinking enough water, put down the effin PS3, get off the internet, and get some sleep. 8 hours if you can. You need it more than you know, and many of the most important biochemical protein based reactions take place while you're sleeping. Neural growth, muscle rebuilding, and general hormonal balancing. Don't mess with that. it's too important.

6. Alcohol and Drugs.

You want to see all your hard work go to shit. Get drunk or do drugs. I know that many of you can give me a million reasons why smoking pot is fine, drinking a beer is fine, you're right. But were talking here about young guys contemplating spending big bucks on useless supplements because they want optimal gains physically from their specific work out. This being the case, you have to optimize where you can control it. You can control drinking. You can control getting high. Listen, most people don't know when to say no. So cut it out completely it is no longer an issue. It's a discretionary thing for each of you, but I will say this; the single most negative thing you can do to your muscles after workout to retard any positive growth is to introduce alcohol into your system. it's a fact.

So thats it.

Learn the basic food groups and the optimal percentages for your body type.
Eat your food intelligently, in smaller portions, more often during the day to compliment your work out schedule....again, EDUCATE YOURSELF.
Drink water.
Get Sleep.

And most importantly, ignore supplements unless it's basic carb or whey protein to get your levels where you need them if you cannot get your food intake up enough to cover the calories you need to function.

It's not hard guys.

And the good people at the GNC will take every penny you have saying otherwise when all you need is Google, the discipline to work out hard every day, and follow a proper and clean diet, and you will see great gains.

I have no credentials really.
I took Biology and Chemistry in University though.
2- sported at the varsity level and did it all on my own. Poorly. I have learned from that and now at the age of 38 I'm finally doing it right. It's easy, and its great.

Good luck Jackals, and remember, don't think about where you wanna be, think about what you need to do to get there the results always take care of themselves, it's just simple logic.

i still get high nearly every night and haven't found it to be an inhibiting factor in terms of the gains i'm making at the gym. i also go to the gym stoned on occasion and surprisingly lift the same amounts as i would if i were not stoned.

cigarettes though, smoking (like real smoking) will really screw you over in the weight room. cigarettes choke your veins out and prevent oxygen flow to your heart, and your muscles need that oxygen to grow. i was a pretty consistent smoker until i really started getting into weights about a year ago, and i haven't smoked (except for the odd boon on weekends) since.

Yeah, I used to smoke regularly and have cut down a LOT... but since I've starting working out a bit more, I can really feel it. It's like my lungs are pushing the crap to the surface (which is good, I guess).

I just did a half hour of Insanity, and my lungs hurt a bit. Smoking is bad, boys and girls.
