Re: Suspected Psoas Muscle Injury

Old thread but I pulled my psoas really bad a few years ago and am just now back to 100%. I tried every stretch and mobility thing I could find but at the end of the day the only thing that actually...

Re: Supplement advise, please

Chris, I would like your reasoning behind why you think someone should take BCAAs. Everything I have read shows that in trained individuals they do little to nothing as a stand alone supplement...

Re: Supplement advise, please

If you are eating enough protein I can't see the need for extra BCAA's. Maybe if you workout fasted but I don't see much benefit to working out faster either. It has to be the most overrated and...

Re: Supplement advise, please

Re: Proper Body Weight Gain?

Percentages are pointless. Eat at least your body weight in g of protein (that is really more than you need for bulking) and other than that eat as much or as little carbs/fats as works for you...

Re: Proper Body Weight Gain?

If you really love milk that could work. I prefer things like peanut butter myself. If you google things a bodybuilder eats for bulking you will probably be overwhelmed with options. The thing is, it...

Re: Proper Body Weight Gain?

Just a note, that is 4+ years of PROPER training, just hitting the weights for four years with a crappy plan is way different that a proper training regimen.

I agree with the rest with the...

Re: Crossfit and Coke

Re: Velocity Diet workout questions

Re: Recommened Calorie Intake

It is really pretty simple, if you are looking to maintain you probably want to eat in the 14-16 calories per pound body weight range, if you are looking to cut then 10-12, looking to gain 16+. You...
