Eating carbs late is working for me.

Might be onto something that works for me. As few carbs as possible before pre workout meal at 1530 and then a good amount of carbs later in the day. Max 150/day on a 2000 cal/day diet. I'm eating fat and protein rich whole foods up until to pre workout oats and whey. Eggs, nuts, lean meat,...

Exertion Headaches...anyone gone through this?

I got one in a big way about 3 leg workouts ago. I felt them a little on upper body days, but the two subsequent leg days I felt them in a big way. This morning I was lying on my gym floor holding my temples waiting for the pain to go away. After that, I had to look it up to see what I had,...

An excercise in reality and perhaps some motivation.

Think about seeing them look so much better, when you noticed, what was it that made you notice? Then think about how many of them maintained there condition. How many slid back in to bad...

That first DB press rep...

So I am about 1 1/2 years out from a major shoulder surgery of a torn bicep tendon (now fused to my upper arm bone), bone spurs removed, clavicle ground to make more room in the joint space. I have recovered very well for the most part with just slightly less strength in that shoulder vs the non...

Should muscles be worked together as groups?

I don't know if the title accurately describes my question, but I was curious to find out the opinions of people here about doing excercises that repeatedly hit the same muscles. For example, doing bench press and then following it up with tricep kickbacks or something similar that targets the...

What are your macro percentages?

Just curious what everyone's macro percentages are. I use percentages because I'm not specifically relating it to cutting or bulking. Should your macros change or overall cals for cutting/bulking? I've settled on 40%Carbs/30%Protein/30%Fat This seems to be working for me as far as having...

Barbell training when you reach 50+

Is it still doable? I know a lot of older guys in my gym who can no longer do them because their body wont let them. Also whenever I see a video of Arnold training all he does is use machines when he used to love barbell training in his prime

Muscle Building over 40

By Scott Miller MYTH: A man over 40 years old can no longer build muscle. Granted, at 40 years old, men usually have less testosterone in their systems, but we can still build muscle. It just takes a bit more persistence and hard work. If you read all the muscle mags and try to...

Does the age part of the body fat scale apply?

Just wondering if you are working towards getting lean with diet along with your weight training do you have to ad extra bf points based on your age or is it something like the BMI that doesn't account for the extra muscle you have and that you are exceptionally lean for your age group?

Dumbbell think they are worth it?

I noticed in my gym at least the times I go, nobody does weighted lunges, or lunges period. I try to get at least 4 sets weekly, of one or another of lunges.
