That sounds like a good workout. What do the medium and light days consist of?
ProSource.net is hard to beat. Used them for years. RTR
Haha, they are called gym roosters and they are everywhere at my gym.
AllStarHealth.com has the cheapest prices and a 5.95 flat shipping rate.
if they do not have what I want then I use lockout ( https://store.lockoutforums.com/).
Both are great sites, reliable, and have great customer service.
Sounds like Prosource.net. $5.95 shipping and I always get it in 2 days. RTR
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
How are you liking the Trutein?
the backne or arm acne is usually a good sign
Was thinking about joining that gym. How large is the douche population there?
You should be asking how is the Milf Talent, or just talent in general
Anyone local to Birmingham should look at elite nutrition for supplements. There's a store in Vestavia by the rave movie theatre, on valleydale road, and in moody. It's a locally started and owned chain of a good friend. His prices are competitive to online prices and if you are a consistent customer or refer others to him he'll hook you up with a little discount. I know he's trying to build up the valleydale location and has been running a special for an Intek protein plus 50% off any PWO with it.
And someone mentioned recovery drinks earlier. Hands down best for rehydration is coconut water. I have one after every sparring session or Crossfit class.
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
Taste is terrific and helps keep me full as well. Great stuff.

I've been to gyms where there are a few guys we called "Chester" that had similar, albeit different routines.
On Monday Chester's routine consisted of Chest & Back
On Tuesday Chester's routine consisted of Chest & Triceps
On Wednesday Chester's routine consisted of Chest & Biceps
On Thursday Chester's routine consisted of Chest & Delts/Shoulders
On Friday Chester's routine consisted of Chest & Hamstrings
On Saturday Chester's routine consisted of walking on the treadmill to work his quads & calves...oh and for cardio
On Sunday Chester rested to give his chest time to recuperate.
What has been left out of this thread is the importance a quality breakfast makes.
If you truly want to look like a champion, then eat breakfast like one.
Two Little Debbie Oatmeal snack cakes and coffee.
For what it's worth, my orthopedic doc told me after he fixed both shoulders and my wrist that after his NFL career was finished, he does nothing but cardio along with push-ups and crunches. He said after your athletic playing days are over, this is the best routine for longevity and health. TIFWIW
Couldn't imagine taking two scoops of this stuff. Half a scoop gets me going. Full scoop and I am ready to run through a wall. I had coffee a couple of hours before the first time I took it and was a little unprepared for the, um, side effects.
Yes, got those too. I see guys every day - I mean every day - lifting and never seems they take any days off to let their muscles recuperate.
Appreciate the advice....I ignored lower body too in previous attempts to stay in shape. Friday's are my shoulders and legs day and it is the most grueling day by far of the week.
Where are you buying your supplements Shane?
I would set aside a day for legs only. Do legs and nothing but legs for a full workout = beast mode.
Obviously, this includes squats and deadlifts.
Agreed. For most people, a moderate weight would be one that they could do ~10-12 reps. This should also be a moderate enough weight to maintain proper form. When done properly, and with enough nutrition and recovery between squat workouts, the squat is one of the very best exercises on the planet. If someone is still worried about his joints he could go with even lighter weight, let's say a weight he could rep 15-20 times.
Also, if anyone is worried about damaging joints, lifting *almost* to failure (i.e. "near failure") rather than to absolute failure can possibly protect the joints from the shearing forces that can affect the joints when you lift to total failure. It's not recommended that people over 50 lift to failure.
Didn't mean to offend. I am the last one to brag about anything, especially how much I lift. I just think gyms - or my gym - has too many space wasters who sort of clog up space, bullshit endlessly and appear to be doing very little for the kind of physique they have. I absolutely think lifting lighter has its benefits, but some of the guys I see doing it have physiques that in my opinion come only from either steroids and lighter weights to prevent injury or doing it clean and lifting heavy. Enjoy your feedback in all of these threads.
I shop around. Use google's shopping search engine. Been to bodybuilding.com's online store the most.
Agree with everything you said -but I said it would be just as effected for performing your average daily activities, obviously any sports/heavy lifting need a different kind of work out to optimize the impact you see from the training. Generally, you still do plenty of basic human movements if you are training for aesthetics - I was just trying to make a point, because too many ppl (especially those who are just starting to get past the beginner stage) like to justify their workout routines by saying they lift x amount on their basic lifts - and there are so many other things to training IMO
Also agree with using soreness as an effectiveness meter - again, just making a point. I know you know that if you've been training for a while, you almost never feel sore unless you subject your muscles to new movements, rep ranges etc... Muscle confusion baby.
