Like I said.
It's your discretion. and seriously the whole to smoke or not to smoke the weed while working out is not a debate i wanna get in.

My attention was more on the gateway affect drugs and alcohol can have to the veering off the planned schedule. As well, alcohol is bad, period, and there is no argument there. So Thought, my man, if you like to blaze and work.... have at it brother.



as for the rest. It's pretty much safe to say that the advice I have given, coupled with a good, and HONEST regimen, will produce a persons optimal fitness level.

The real challenge is in getting people to actually follow the plan 100%.

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.
u wont know unless u stop smoking if ur lifting to ur potential just sayin'

I did some squats yesterday with 185-225lbs. My quads were so sore this morning, I could barely get out of bed.

I fear the leg extension machine the most

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.
Some great points there to be sure.... dunno if I agree with everything there though.

60/30/10 for a diet sounds a bit crazy to me.... 60% carbs?? Considering that what you're generally looking for is 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight that ends up being A LOT of carbs if you do the calculations... I need about 250-350g of protein based on my weight (245lbs)... I'm not sure how I'd manage 600-700g of carbs per day.... or if I'd even WANT to. You also need some healthy fats in your diet... no need to cut it down to 10%. Most effective diets these days are closer to 40/40/20... cut out the CRAP fats (trans fats)... but eat the healthy ones (nuts, olive oil, Peanut Butter).

Vitamins and Suppliments.... There's a lot of "snake oil" out there... but there's also a few things that DO work. Creatine... BCAAs... Arginine... do you need 'em? No. They're not essential.... an athlete doesn't necessarily need the best equip either.... but he plays better when he has it doesn't he? I've talked to a number of men & women over the years in a variety of sports who have definitely noticed a difference in their performances when they've used supps. I'm talking about people who religiously track their diet and the amount of rest that they get (as well as their workouts) to ensure that they're working with a "controlled environment".... the only thing that's different is the supps... and they've made a difference.

I think you're bang on with everything else though.

What ToRap also meant to say is that beer and Big Macs are part of a healthy lifestyle.

It'll be tough to add those things in to my diet, but I'll somehow manage.

Ha! Part of the meal plan my man... just swipe the card and go.

On another note I bought a new supp the other day that a buddy recommended.... it's called "Amino Energy" by ON... I'm a fan! Contains BCAAs, some Glutamine, Arginine and caffeine. I take it about 30 min before my workout (as well as directly after) and I've found that it helps A LOT. More energy while lifting for sure.

I've been into protein shakes after workout and before sleep for a month now. I noticed it makes me drowsy after I drink it. Is this normal?

This used to happen to me when I was younger. I think it has to do with your body size. If you are smaller, the serving size may be too big for you and your body has to work harder to break it all down, thus you get tired.

Yep. Esp. the high-calorie ones.

I remember a couple of years ago I gave one of my buddies (who doesn't work out) one of my shakes to try..... he drank it and then passed out on my couch for the next 4 hours. LOL! It was hilarious seeing his face when he woke up. He thought I roofied him.
