It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Did you try that egg/coconut/fruit recipe I posted in another thread? It's pretty damn easy to knock down 5 or 6 eggs with that.

Not sure if this has been addressed before, but I was just curious about something. I don't really work out to gain muscle mass; rather, I'm doing it to increase my cardio endurance and to tone the muscles I already have. However, I was wondering if there's really any particular order I should do things in. Would cardio workouts before weight lifting be more efficient, or vice versa? Or does it really matter?

Haha I just remembered this today. When I went to China one time, we ate breakfast at the hotel buffet, and they only served garbage.. Piles of rice and noodles, some buns, and that's about it. Well they did have a guy preparing fried eggs, so I could eat nothing but eggs for breakfast. I kept going back, and had about 12-14 eggs by the time I was done

Do high rep sets, followed by HIIT. Do steady state cardio in the morning before breakfast.

BTW you don't "tone your muscles". You either gain mass, or lose fat. What you want to do is lose fat.

Be sure to have a high carb/high protien/NO fat meal right after your workouts (and after your morning workouts make this low carb/high protein/no fat)

Question: What do you guys do for the 2-5 minutes rest between sets. Do you sit on the bench? Walk around? Wut the hell is the best way to spend those time??

Assuming you aren't doing isolated muscle groups

Just did chest today. About a week or two ago I was doing weighted dips and I got some pain in my sternum area. I was unable to do any sort of barbell presses in the previous few workouts due to this pain. I switched to the normal bench for the first time in well years (No workout partner). I wasn't to impressed with my lifts, but I tried the flat barbell press again today and work up from 45lbs (To see if it would hurt) all the way to my standard 85lbs. I then tried 90 (My previous heaviest weight with a set of 6-8 reps generally). I had enough confidence after that set and tried the 95's. I pumped out 4 solid reps. Felt good, i'm sure I could have done a few more if I wern't so tired from doing the test presses. At the end I attempted a dip, with no weight and immediately felt pain. I guess i'll be taking some time off from those for a long while

I just started going back to the gym again, I'm looking to gain weight, how should I split my diet up? I'm quite accustomed to doing 3 meals a day (quick breakfast, lunch, dinner). How should I be eating and what should I be looking for to get the most out of my work out?

Dude, it's pissing me off. Dip's are one of my favorite exercises! I could do narrow dips that focus on my tri's, but if I went wide focusing on the chest there was pain right away.

It's a dip, seriously how can you screw it up? I've been doing them for a long time now, but recently started adding some weight. I think I had around 50lbs hanging off my waist and it was apparently putting too much pressure on my rips. Unfortunate really.

Wait, wut the hell was I talking about.

5 minutes is too long, I usually rest about a minute then do my next set, but when I'm on my 3rd set I need to rest a bit longer otherwise I can't lift as much.

And Correction: I meant isolated muscle group

Hahahaha. Ive done that, and was pretty embarrassed, even though I dont think any one saw me. I didnt spit on myself, but rather let a bit of spit fly out onto the machine. Meh!

If you are seriously trying to do one instead of the other, you need to focus on that. HIIT I hear is great, never done it myself though. As for the order, if you do an intense cardio workout BEFORE your weights, you will have less energy to push yourself during your anaerobic workout.

My breaks are about 15-30 seconds in between reps, and 1 or 2 minutes between sets, which I will walk it off, take some water, and just breathe.
