Instead, purchase yourself some PB2 (85% fat free peanut butter powder) from amazon and use that in your shakes with a banana and some skim milk. Healthy, full of protein and MUCH better for your body because it is something your body can and will actually distribute to your muscles and burn up.

It doesn't hurt that it tastes so fucking good.


OMG this stuff is amazing, good bye shitty whey chocolate chalk taste, hello more protein.

Ugh. I ordered a 5lb tub of ON Gold Standard on a recommendation and it tastes terrible. Not looking forward to powering through this stuff.

Leg day yesterday, I did lunges and now my ass hurts sooo bad that just trying to sit on the toilet hurts.
PS: 9 months! WOW


So Im gonna make a post here about things I've learned about GETTING HUGE...or building muscle.

#1 Rule - Only ONE thing builds muscle, and it aint steroids. Its HARD WORK AND CONSISTENCY. You need to work HARD at the gym and need to go REGULARLY. If you follow only one piece of advice. That is it.

#2 Rule - it takes a fucking LONG TIME to build muscle. Building muscle is counted in YEARS. So be realistic in you goals. Dont think you will look like Arnold (in his prime lolz) in 6 months a year or even 5 years. Building a body building physique is measured in years of hard work.

#3 Rule -Diet is essential for losing weight and building muscle. If you eat shit, you will look like shit. Plain and simple.

#4 Rule - EVERYONE is different. What works for you might not work for someone else. There is no one formula works for all, you need tot ry stuff and see if it works for YOU. If it does stick with it, if it doesnt change it up.

#5 Rule - Have fun. Examine WHAT you're doing and why. Your goals should be realistic and you should foremost have fun doing it. If you hate it, find it a chore, stresses you out, you will fail. Fins pleasure in working out, there are so many things you can do like crossfit, group work outs, home work outs, finding a workout partner, etc. Find something that gets you motivated.

#6 Rule - Dont believe the hype. All those Youtube people who have miracle programs are lying and/or you dont need them. Refer to rule #1. If you're thinking of wasting money on programs and ebooks and all that crap, dont. You will find about a zillion free workout routines and tips for free from GOOD and reliable sources. If they are trying to sell you, its most probably a gimmick.

Since my knees are bound to give out if I keep running, I've taken up biking. Luckily there's a lake nearby with lots of great trails. Now I just need any of my friends to be in good enough shape to go 3 miles without taking a break.

Struggling to stay with my program. Trying to gain five pounds by the end of summer, but it's hard to find the motivation after I get home from work to get to the gym or fix proper meals.

Hard to believe this thread is 4 years old.

Its funny how much my body has changed within these 4 years, and I dont just mean in muscle size, but over all.

Its tough being in a decline, I mean, Im not saying Im 70 years old with arthritis and can barely move, I just mean that after a certain age, your body doesn't behave like its 20 or even 30. Its funny to say this since Ive always complained about being old on OB, even when I was 30 something and now that Im 41, I can really mean it. Though, its nice to see the familiar faces have all aged with me. It would be super weird to be on OB with constant turn over of younglings signing up. I guess its the appeal of OB, even though we've lost quite a bit of our family.

Anyway, back to the original point, which was to say that I've had to change my workout and the amount I lift. Things Ive noticed with lifting extra heavy is that I need more time to recoup and I'm just not willing to do that anymore. I cant be sore for 3 days and walk funny just to life extra heavy, so I've lightened my loads with more reps. I've also switched my splits to full body, the splits were just too draining on my muscles, to do 3 or 4 exercises per muscle group is just as killer as lifting extra heavy. Ive decided that the frequency of doing 1 or 2 exercises per muscle group and resting it less works great for me. Ive also found I get more of an overall look instead of a non uniformed look. My shoulders and back always seemed larger than the rest of my body.Lastly, I seem to sweat and burn more calories doing a full body workout, which keepos my line in check.

Thins are good.
PS: things and thins are good.

I love that about OB - we've been through a lot of years together!

It's funny how we're in different situations at nearly the same age.

You are in much better shape than me because you took good care of yourself in your 20s and 30s!

But meanwhile at 38 I feel like I'm in my best shape ever. It's still not a very good shape. But my 20s and early 30s were so bad... I can still achieve my best.

I heard a doctor say: "Can you be in the best shape of your life when you're 40 or 50? If you were serious about fitness in your 20s and 30s... then no. Otherwise, yes!"

B...


haha thats almost a PSA for young people.... hey, under 30? Eat crap all day and dont exercise, you'll thank me later in life. lol

But actually, I didnt take care of myself until my late 20's (probably around 28). In my 20's Id pretty much eat crap every day, drink heavily and did an absurd amount of drugs and smoked. I never felt "bad" or got really fat (I guess its my genes, my dad was a toothpick) but around 28 is when I had no energy and Crohns was starting to show early symptoms. So that's when I started being more conscious of health.

I know what you're saying John, but you will notice when you reach a certain age that your recoup and energy levels just arent what they used to be, even a 5 year difference from 35 to 40 is major I found. It sucks, but c'est la vie!

Been doing this ab August challenge on facebook. 100 ab workouts per day and seeing amazing reulsts after only two week. I also took my first nutrition class which and been a complete eye opener in terms of what my diet consists of. Feeling better then I have in years.

AB CHALLENGE
Do 100 Sit Ups, Crunches, Leg Lifts, or Jackknife Sit Ups each day for the month of August. It doesn't matter how many or how long each set is, just get to 100 by the end of the day. By the end of August you will have completed 3,100 abdominal reps and have a glorious six-pack worthy to wash clothing on! Post pics or tell us all if you've completed the daily challenge. Feel free to invite all whom might be interested!

I'll probably keep this up the rest of my life if I can, I can easily knock out 100 in like 10 mins now. I've found workout routines that don't require me to go to the gym are the best kind because I have zero excuses not to do them unless im injured or sick.
