Trying to cut and lean up.

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I think i figured out my main problem, i dont eat enough, honestly i never have an appetite even when im not on any supps,so the supps decrease it even more usually but since ive been taking them ive been eating more and better, im gonna do full meals, but from what i calced from the above meal plan its only around 1600 cals? is that to much of a decrease from what i should be having? according to bodybuilding.com is 2625?

    I usually do this, Wake up whenever(always varies) make 3-4 eggwhites and 1-2 yolks and scramble them and have a glass of skim milk, then 2 hours later have a protein shake, then another 2 hours later because im usually at work and its better than eating the junk they sell there lol, then when i get home from work usually a chicken breast a salad with only lettuce & onions or some tuna with fat free mayo(its gross, i force myself to eat it) then later on, i have another shake. I usually get to bed around 2-3 am? lol its hard for me to fall asleep before then, trust me ive tried lol, im trying to get on a schedule,went to bed at 12:30am last nite set alarm for 9 am and woke up at 8:30 i was like wow, i woke up without an alarm and before i wanted to lol, went running on an empty stomach for an hour, then made eggs and went to work


  2. Wow, i actually never really compared pictures before lol, i guess i changed a bit, another month and i should be good, oh and i usually hit the gym everyday? sometimes i rest though, usually saturday? because i work like 10-8 and the gym closes at 8 and so im SOL, Saturday(maybe,if depends if i can get there or else i accomidate my works accordingly for the rest of the week so its spread out) Chest And Biceps, Sunday: Shoulders and triceps Monday: Back and legs/or chest. tuesday: Chest and biceps, Wenesday:Shoulders and triceps Thursday:Chest and biceps/ or legs and back and friday: chest and biceps or legs and back, I usually do back whenever and not always with legs,and i do abs everyday for about 20 mins? lol

  3. Sorry, the only reason I asked was because you seemed fairly young in the pictures so depending on age there could be fairly different approach methods.

Eat!
    Dude your sig made me LMAO, and spit out my favorite drink. How does one go about getting banned from a sushi joint? It really reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer ate too much...

    Bigtoy do you weight train? I skimmed through the thread and don't remember seeing it there.

  5. I weight train every day lol an hour and a half each workout usually and i go to la fitness

    Dude its possible , i know 2 people who got kicked out of all you can eat places, one of them was a sushi bar, because he was there for like 4 hours and they told him to leave

  8. You know, if you were going to supplement anything for as much cardio as you do, I personally would go with bulk BCAA, L-Leucine, and some Xtend or other flavored BCAA. Bulk BCAA is cheap as is L-Leucine, but I like to mix it with Xtend to spare me the bitter taste.

    You can probably get away with straight L-leucine if you weren't looking to dish out too much cash, either way take them between meals when you're not taking a protein drink, and pre-workout.

    This would help retain some muscle, help with protein synthesis and that noise.

    I also bought some bulk creatine for like $3 on Nutraplanet. Everything i've mentioned can be found there, under bulk supplies.

  9. Hm...well i drink alot of water and i kinda like something with some flavor, would that be doable with bcaas? i was reading about them earlier, and im not really worried about retaining muscle, i think im strong by nature, my reps usually go up after each session, the last increase i did was up 10 pounds on bench from the previous session, and a buddy of mine gave me some creatine he bought from gnc for 75$ a while back for free, but i havent been taking it because im going to a concert on july 12th and i dont really wanna risk a breakout

    I wasn't eating all the rice in the rolls and they said that that was part of the rules. I can't eat that many carbs at once. And I spend alot of time there, they're all like "You hear four hour! Sign say all-you-can-eat, not you-eat-all!
    So I don't go back cause they'll yell at me, and just cause their five-two and a buck ten, doesn't mean they won't unleash the fists of fury on me. Freakin ninja's.

    That's classic. They have some weird rules, like if you eat every item you order, it's a set price, but if you don't finish everything you pay individual items price at one I used to go to.

    Bigtoy I think retaining and building muscle should be a priority. If you lose fat and muscle, you just look like a skinnier fat person... I read that on MD and it made sense the way they put it. Building muscle isn't all about getting jacked and huge. You need it to look good when you are lean.

  12. Not to mention that building muscle means your metabolism is going to spike up since it takes a lot more energy to feed up muscle than it does with fat.

    Thats usually one of the "goals" of HIIT, to keep your hearth rate up and help build some muscle so you keep on burning fat even when you're out of the gym.

  13. la fitness !!!

  14. i retain the muscle fine lol, and i said i do do hiit...on the first post of the topic lol :S and im not fat, far from it lol i weighed myself today and it was 167 , oh and my bench increased again yesterday, now i rep 180 x10-12 for 3 sets

    If you do as much cardio as you are doing, you are going to have more cortisol running through your body than usual. Cortisol is bad for retaining muscle, no horrible. There are tons of Cort blockers if you don't wanna go with BCAA's Champion Nutrition has a cheap one called Cortistat PS. Anabolic Xtreme has a good one called Retain2.

    To each his own. However, you not having a problem retaining muscle with your cardio is like me saying I won't get fat eating a jar of mayonaise.

  16. before i say that, why would you want to eat a whole jar of mayonaise anyway :S that doesnt sound very tasty , but if you wanted to you could always just eat extremely high fiberous foods all day and take a dump like 4 times a day im sure thatd keep your weight down and heck you might even lose weight while at the same time get bulimic from the opposite end of your body (dont actually do this...lol) idk it was a joke me and a buddy at work were joking about, me and him are both in great shape btw, but he was saying he tells his friends who are overweight to do that lol

    you wont get fat eating a jar a mayonaise, but if you eat several you will, also if you eat one, and then just sit on the couch for the next week, yea then youll get fat, but if you eat a jar of mayonaise and are active as i am, id doubt it, and i retain muscle fine, because at work im always doing heavy lifting anyway lol so its like im at the gym while at work but with way less weight , and i think somethings wrong with the leftside of my body, my left arms always been smaller than my right, by far, and now not only is my left arm still way smaller, but my right arm is cut and my left arm isnt lol and i do the same exercises for both arms... and usually do them together...preacher....straigh t bar...cable curls/regular curls, etc. I just cant win

    oh ya, i just remember, i was talking to this dude at la fitness yesterday and he said hed hollar at me next time la fitness is hiring and hook it up so now work can be like being at the gym because it will be at the gym *whistles*, well it wasnt the first time id met him, id actually helped him out when he was benching a few times and we got talking, and yesterday i brought my bro to the gym, who just turned 18 and the dude said hed give him the same deal i got when i joined 3 months ago.

  17. but honestly i dont really care about complete muscle retention, as long as i keep some of it, because having big muscles doesnt really fit in well with my lifestyle :\, itd be kind of hard being bulky and trying to skate, itd throw me completely off balance lol

    Then you aren't looking to cut and lean up, you are looking to get SKINNY. Really what is the point of this thread, you've been given sound advice, but have taken none of it.

    Seems like you have it all figured out, good luck champ.

  19. What? your about 2 months late to be trying to give me advice lol, i had already been given advice and taken it...lol wow, and i am looking to cut and lean up, i just dont want to be huge -.-

  20. If you want to be helpful, even if it is late, know of any protein mixes that wont make you gag if you mix them in water? lol im currently taking ON gold standard cookies and cream but i can only bare it in skim milk, i tried it with water and i couldnt keep it down

  21. Brand: All The Whey Flavor: Cinnamon Bun or Cupcake Batter

    Their Mocha flavor is out of this world.

    The thing about Syntha six though is 2 scoops = 46g protein, 100 calories from fat, 26 g of carbs, and 4g sugar.
