    the other way is to cut all physical activity between workouts, you will need 10 to 20% fewer calories that way.

    Use the elevator

    Don’t visit anyone if they live upstairs

    Send someone else out to get the mail

    Use a car if you have to walk more than 100 metres.

    ok, should i have a protein shake in the mornings?

    More food, up the intake, you eat like an average person (food choice wise) but as you dont gain weight easily you shouldnt have any trouble if you eat like that but just include more and more food.

    I usually tell people to cut liquid calories as they just make you fat but in your case (steer clear of too much sugary crap though) do it. More protein shakes, anything like that.

    2 weet bix!! I used to down 14-16 at 17 years old to give you an idea of the amount of food you need when you train.

    My office girl is a huuuge chick and she always comments on how good my metabolism must be with the amount of food that i eat and never gain fat.

    Red meat for two weeks then white the next. Prior to comp I will have anywhere up to 6 shakes per day.

    Realistically, your body will crave food when you are working it right…trust me on this. Your program could be suffering or it could be that you are not pushing yourself enough.

    If I knew back then what i know now…MAN I woulda trained with more intensity, less time and with more compound movements.

    Yep train hard and with a lot of deads, squats, pull ups, rows, bench (or weighted pushups) and you will not only grow bigger but have a LOT more strength.

    That mad cow link has a great spreadsheet for planning a 5×5 routine. I have used it a couple of times maybe about 06 or 07.

    You know it sad when training methods now have catchy names. Marketing is everywhere.

    Yup i have the template. Gives me every weight I need for every set. According to my data entry, In 7 or so weeks I’ll be doing 190kilo squats for 5 😯
    Im staying optimistic and I’m’a gonna do it.

    But for JD86, start with riptoes mate, its for newbies and your strength will skyrocket. A mate of mine whos only been training for 12months is doing presses that I was doing after my first 2years 😯 Im going with that hes just gifted πŸ˜†

    I find it more sad when people make excuses that they can’t squat
