Yeah, it is a great starter/intermediate program and it is packed full of info that can get anyone started on the BB Road.
Even without the all you can eat, the take away is: eat, eat, eat.

Awesome! yeah I try to eat statistically- I never leave the house withput food and make sure I never run out of anything.

Thanks for the advice!

Hi I have a few questions about tiredness,fatigue and workout
Today I was doing my upper body split and I usually spend about an hour and a half to 2 hours doing this (including 10 minute cardio at start).
I never felt quite right (had a cold,maybe flu symptoms) and the cardio only lasted 5 minutes before I got tired.
I had quite a succesful workout and nearly completed it despite feeling a bit light headed and tired. I spent about 1 hour and 15 minutes, and I was about to start my deadlift sets (I usually do 5 as this is my favourite lift plus I finish with 1 lightish to practice my form and cool down) when I just felt way too tired and had to finish.
Is it normal to feel really tired and have to finish early?
Thankfully I managed to do all my shoulder and chest work etc, just never got to do deadlift.
Also last week my nutrionist said I should be finishing my upper body workout with 3 sets of inclined sit ups, and DocMattic gave me some information where they do either crunches, inclined leg raises or situps at the end of a workout.
I find sit ups etc extremely boring and I'm usually too tired so haven't really bothered, is it worthwhile doing it if I'm not too tired?
Also would it be ok to add my deadlift sets in tomorrow with my lower body routine?
Deadlift is the only lift I do that really hits the back, and apart from cable crunch is the only ab exercise.

If you are having trouble completing a workout you normally have no trouble with then something is up. You are either coming down with something or have taxed your system too much. No matter which it is the answer is the same. Back off a little. If you are sick no point in possibly extending it and if you are overworked no point in digging a bigger hole to crawl out of. Take a day off, or at least go easy for a while till you feel strong again. If you find yourself running into a wall sometimes the best idea is to take a step back and look for the door.

Thanks- I'll see if I feel any better tomorrow- I think I might just have a cold.
If I still feel crap I'll take tomorrow off and rest until Monday.
I would like to take a week off but its nearly christmas, so If I can try and last until christmas, then I can take a week off over the holiday which seems pretty cool!
Thanks, I'll bear that in mind for the next time I get sick too

You really don't need your workouts to be 2 hours. an hour is enough, in and out!

I think a hard thing for many to grasp, especially new guys, is that less can be more.

yeah I'll try and be more sensible as opposed to stupid sets lol
Happy New Year everyone!

Your physique has definitely improved. By this time next year you could easily be hovering around 160+. Im sorry that you suffer from an eating disorder, this can be very difficult to overcome and it takes time. Little goals here and there are better to help you get to the end goal. My wife deals with teens who have eating disorders weekly through her internship and clinicals as a counselor in her grad program. I hear about the issues they deal with from her, not specifics as this would violate her professional relationship with clients, and it seems to me that you would benefit greatly from meeting regularly with a counselor who specializes in eating disorders or body dysmorphia issues. Especially if you could find one that has knowledge of nutrition and exercise as well and encourages both.
Keep updating bud as this will also help you stay accountable to yourself with the added bonus of positive criticism from others. Ignore the haters, theyre always around...

Yeah I fel I probably had body dysmorphia- I have 2 disfigured ribs that sticks out very far (the bottom 2) that makes it look like I have a gut when I wear shirts but I don't. I also have a really long neck which makes me looked hunch even though I have a very straight back. This probably gave me confidence issues that led to the disorder.
I don't know if I would reach 160 since I have a naturally small frame, I've been told I won't et much bigger but I think I could make 150.
n terms of lifting, I can do double my bodyweight with some things- I weigh 60kg and squat 95 but can do 115kg for 2 reps, I leg press 135kg, deadlft 95kg, bench 50kg so I'm getting stronger but still quite weak

you need more fat in your diet...skinny people that eat clean and are trying to gain weight are ridiculous....if you have a fast metabolisn then use your activity level to get you into or keep you in the shape you want to be in, dont worry so much about diet. slow down if you want to put on weight, sleep more, take naps, eat fatty foods that will help weight stick, use your training to help put the weight in the right places.
