What is your biggest problem area when it comes to training?

Page 2 of 7 First 1234 ... Last

  1. I'd say diet is a main issue. Cutting is hard, period. And eating clean foods can be expensive. Buying in bulk is important at the grocery store but it's still a pain in the ass. Also after my stressful week at work I just wanna go out and get hammered to unwind so it sets me me back a little. It also effects the recovery time of the muscles worked on friday so it's a double slap. Extra calories and longer recovery. Damn but I need a nice cold yuengling lager or 15.


  2. trainning chest and shoulders. these are my weak points. when I train back I really enjoy it, because I can move some respectable wieght, when I am doing chest I don't put as intencity into it, nor do I fallow a decent chest and should plan. I also have a hard time eating good. I is hard for me to eat every 2-3 hours. too often is the case that I grab some romen noodles instead of chicken and rice or that kind of thing.

    Well there is your problem - focus danielson and gains will come. but really - try changing up your chest routine. switch ramen noodles for microwave packs of oatmeal.

    Hmmm, maybe.

  5. My 2 major problems:
    1. Training alone so pushing to limits can be difficult.
    2. Getting stuck in between wanting to gain more muscle/size and wanting to get leaner.

  6. My diet is so fine tuned that people think I'm crazy...lol. I'd have to say my problem area is sleeping right. I normaly get 7-8 hrs but sometimes I get as little as 2 hrs. That is easy enough to fix though. I just have to get in bed....to sleep that is.

    That goes for me as well.

  8. number one on your list size is a big factor for me too. Especially since there is no hammer equipment at my gym......

  9. My problems occur on the 'ends' of my bulk/cuting programs. Towards the end of my bulking period I tend to slow down gains of LBM and add a higher lb portions of fat. When I'm at the end of my cutting period I lose LBM at an increased pace as I hit around 8% and cutting to lower percentages takes a heavier toll.

    I probably need a good diet 'tweak' as I hit these limits, but I tend to follow what got me to that point.

    I also will probably never get the proper levels of sleep as I tend to only run about 5-6 hours a night...but I consider it the less evil as opposed to diet and training issues.

    .

    Thats probably your problem. You'd be amazed at what a small adjustment can do.

    This goes for me as well. My diet can kind of suck at times too, I have been having pretty good luck with ckd fo the past year, but right now I am tired of it and just trying to watch what I shove in the gullet. Protein/carb or Protein/fat never carb/fat. Hopefully I can keep the fat off that I lost. My sleep is the worst, I have a kollicy (sp?) 1 year old that is letting me get about 4 to 5 hours at night, I find that melatonin helps me get to sleep but its the staying asleep thats not happening.

    I have given up trying to train with other people, I tried a couple of weeks of dogg crapp with a coworker over the winter, they guy wanted to change the routine up every damn workout. Could never get into a groove with it.

    I really need professional clown lifting/diet/training help

  12. It'd be nice if one could clone oneself so you could always have a WO partner who's always on the same page.

  13. I would kill my training partner then. He's would be an *******.

    LOL! I guess I would also. I can't stand myself.

  15. 1. Diet. I've got the bulking thing down, cutting OTOH...
    2. Rest/recovery. What can you do other than the best you can?
    3. Training partner. Back in the day I used to train with my brother, and that was about as good as it got. Just wish I hadn't wasted those days with a ****ty ass volume routine and subpar diet. But now he's in Southern California and I, am not.
    4. Strength gains. I'm honestly not satisfied in that regard, but I guess any gains are good gains.

    I too am looking forward to this Clown Posse.

  16. diet is my #1 weakness.

    i cant maintain good diet for bulking or cutting. i simply consume alot of carbs.

    I honestly think my Workout partner is the reason Ive grown so much in the last year and a half. We both push each other so freakin hard its unbelievable. We are constintly teaching each other new **** and improving our workouts greatly. He's a certified personal trainer and knows his **** but he is amazed at some of the stuff I tell him that I learn off this site. Im trying to get him to sign up here but he's also a teacher, head coach for his high school soccer team and assisint coach for his football team so he's just as straped for time as I am.

    It is a great thing to have someone as dedicated to something as you are if you two are working together at it. We have definitly become great friends.

  18. You are lucky to have a training partner like that.

  20. My diet is screwed up!
    I cant lose the last little bit of midsection for some reason.

    Its probably like three puonds i am trying to lose, but i get down so far and then my fatloss comes to a screeching halt. I get tired of getting smaller and start to get fat again?

    Same ol same ol.

    I think he means, you can schedule your most intense sessions on the days you eat the most, make better use of the extra calories.

    Makes sense to me.

  22. I'd definately say diet. I lose weight like its going out of style if I don't get at least 3000 cals a day, so if I get a little lazy with my diet for a couple days here and there all my hard work to gain those pounds goes out the window. Unfortunately, I have my fair share of those lazy days with my diet

    Different types of training induce different type of stimuli and if you time it right you can bascially eliminate the damage a day of splurging can cause and actually make use of those calories WHILE still burning fat. Now this doesn't mean you can go eat 3 pizzas and get away with it. You still have to have some discipline but your options of what to eat increase drastically.

  24. Diet and training alone.

    I'm single so I have to make all my food. I tend to drift to the quick and lazy foods. Pasta is so quick and easy to make and I can freeze a lot of it. But, it's pasta. ...and Chipotle is Chipotle.

    I train alone so I have to limit myself sometimes. This can be a draw back. I'm sure there are training principles that maximize the lone workout method, but I haven't really found them yet.

  25. My problem is that I feel like I don't know enough about my diet to make good decisions on a daily basis. Like all winter I felt like I was bulking right, until I started to realize that I was getting really fat. Then I got an overhaul from SC and bobo and others, and still two months later this gut isn't coming close to going away. I train hard, I'm very good at sticking to my diet, it's just that I guess I don't design them very good to begin with. I take a look at my training partner and some other friends of mine and they eat pizza and fried foods and drink beer and all that ****. Here I am with my tuna and protein shakes and whatnot, and they look better. Sometimes it just gets very frustrating. I feel lost, and I feel like all the work I do goes to waste, but I just don't really know how. Like I can't figure out what I'm doing so wrong, I look like someone who's never exercised in their life. Sorry for the rambling, I'm in a 'feel sorry for yourself' mood.
