Protein Powders emmyweird84 23 36 minutesemmyweird84 (289): @Fayzeh lol its ok, it's Friday! I definitely precook foods otherwise I'd be wasting money and consuming things I shouldn't. I sometimes have my eggs already done, like mini quiche like cups and then just reheat. Same with lunches...brown rice already done with a protein and veggies. Dinner I cook each night because I love cooking and some habits die hard!! But it's more healthy habits now

Phat Log ParkerHenry 26 4 hoursParkerHenry (88): I'm really liking the program so far, still haven't run it long enough to notice any progress yet. I was pretty sore in the upper body and legs the first week, but I think my body is starting to adapt to the program since I'm not as sore anymore. I'm planning on staying with this routine for at least 3 more months and see what kind of progress I make.

Vacation... Lost weight CaptainKanter 5 10 hoursEagleRare10 (58): I too fluctuate quite a bit in weight throughout the week, though in my case it usually follows a specific pattern where I'm about 5 lbs heavier on Monday than I am on Friday. Then I indulge a bit on the weekend, and boom, by Monday its spiked back up again. I don't think that fluctuation is at all related to body-composition, because the weekly average still trends down when I cut, and up when I bulk. So don't sweat 3 lbs in 11 days.

Sleep Aid jack3d14 10 1 dayjack3d14 (7): I think a big part of it is having a daily routine and sleeping the same time every day. I do watch tv before bed too so those are some things I need to work on. I haven't taken jack3d since the original was discontinued lol. Somatomax has some of the ingredients mentioned like GABA so I'll give that a try too.
Post Bikini Competition Diet anastasiaova 2 1 dayhaole (1908): I've heard people usually indulge for a day or two or week and then get back on track with new goals for the next event. Reverse diet is right but gradually increase calories.
Bulk Macros nevermore81 4 1 dayFiremanSi (41569): @nevermore81 ur 205 and were eating 110protein... probably lost a bit of muscle there in those 50lbs. Personally i like meat in my diet so i tend to stick to the old reliable of 1g/lb of protein 205g in ur case. U shouldn't need much more than 400g carbs unless ur very active during the day. Ur also gonna want to moderately ramp in eating 3500 from 2100, so add 250-400cals every 4-7days and monitor weight gain.
How long to get visible abs Ernieknowsasecret 7 1 dayanastasiaova (19): I think it's impossible to say how long it would take for you. If your diet is on point and you're slowly decreasing overall body fat, abs will show up one day :) Also depends on your genetics and where you store fat and where you lose it first/last x

Don't get caught up in the numbers, they don't really matter. 2nd. You've been tracking cals/macros for a long time. What is your average daily macro intake? What types of food provide the majority of your calories? 3rd. How much do you sleep a night? My guess, mind you it's not a very informed one at this point, is one of 2...
Reverse dieting and saving calories robinxchrom 4 1 dayNaturalBrawn (130): "this so called 'maintenance' is such a mis-used term. Your maintenance calories is a moving target.. If you've been hovering around 10% at 2450 calories THAT is your current maintenance." I agree you need to apply critical thinking and constant adjustment to have a 'workable' goal dependent calorie benchmark. What cracks me up is people using a 'maintenance' of when they were a different weight and not refactoring... so for...
Eagle's log EagleRare10 26 2 daysEagleRare10 (58): 5/25 workout (legs/core) Weight: 206.4 Nothing really worth logging today. My plan today was to hit some heavy deadlifts, and do some volume squat work. But when I showed up at my gym, all olympic barbells were already in use, as was the squat rack. So I had to improvise. Trap bar dead: 135x10; 185x7; 275x5; 345x5x5 By then squat rack opened up Squats: 225x10; 275x7 x5 RKC Planks: 30 seconds on, 30 seconds rest x3 Hanging...

Noob supp advice nevermore81 7 2 daysNaturalBrawn (130): Solid advice above, I cant really add much to that other than that I take caff in the pill format (convenience), creatine mono (cheap) and Whey (convenience). I may go as far as add Omega 3 if your not a big fish eater, if your going to be fancy you could stretch to a pump agent like Betaine for a PreWo, budget permitting Leucine has mixed but promising reviews/studies. I live in the permanent shade in the UK so Vit D is my other regular...

Fatigue West165 10 3 daysNorIda (45265): Here's a novel idea: Don't train to failure. Crazy, I know. But failure is a tool you should utilize, not rely on. I guarantee of you train short of failure, the combined total weight lifted on ALL EXERCISES will increase greatly. Overall volume and poundage lifted will be greater without going to failure. Resulting in better gains. Example 4 sets of 8 with 100lbs is 3200lbs lifted? Now if that's going to failure you could likely do 5 sets...

5/3/1 set-up SnackIt 12 4 daysJsn3004 (619): You said your goals are size and strength. You will gain size by being in a caloric surplus. You will gain strength by following the template and being in a caloric surplus will help as well. Boring But Big is a well known program proven to work. Once again follow the program and eat in a caloric surplus (Don't dirty bulk, eat 300-500 calories above maintenance). Sometimes we overcomplicate things when they are really simple.
newbie help fraser1133 4 4 daysLiftamusprime (64): Well that changes from person to person..I maintain at 3400 calories and bulk well above that..so 3000 isn't too much. You can do cardio if you want for health reasons.. But weight training tends to be enough for many..especially when bulking. I record my weight every morning and make a weekly average to determine if I'm on track (weight changes everyday due to other factors like water retention etc). For example if I'm aiming to gain 2lbs per...

NEED HELP leg workouts!!! anteis99 3 8 daysJsn3004 (619): A workout won't get your legs lean. Having a low bodyfat percentage will make your legs leaner. I'd recommend bulking up though, you're lean enough. I'd follow a program and stick to that and your legs will become more developed. If you make your own program, I recommend reading this first. http://forum.simplyshredded.com/topic/16702/page/1/routine-design-for-dummies-10/

Hold at maintenance for about a month and go again. Ur body needs this and u mentally need the break dude.
