Just had an awesome shoulder workout. Utilized drop sets again after half a year of not doing them. Had great results in the first year, don't know why I stopped doing them

After four months in the gym, I got my PB bench press to a plate (3 sets @ 5 reps) I could barely lift the bar+15 pounds when I first started. Progress is slow, but then again, I didn't expect fast results. A lot of my exercises come from the links and other peoples routines...so thank you RS!

B) Extended cardio is a horrible idea if you are under 20g carbs, and is probably not the best way to reach your goals (unless your goal is to be able to run for a long time, running for a long time isn't really a great workout). Instead, short intense workouts that increase your resting metabolism is probably a better option. High rep weight training, for instance, with a bit of short, light cardio (under 30 mins, low heart rate) every morning.

EDIT: I would recommend following the V-diet training programme. It was put together specifically for doing low carb (even lower than <20g) and should be very suitable for you. Just pick one that fits your experience level, and go from there. Be sure to add the very low intensity walks each morning before eating.

That's what I did before, going from 200 lbs or so down to 186 in just over a month. And I'll be doing it again to go from (hopefully) 220 down to 200
Thanks for the info, mind sharing how much all that costs for a months supply? kind of broke at the moment due to not working for quite a while due to school :S

btw, here's the info for the Casien Costco Protein:

I didn't do the actual v-diet, as in I didn't use their products. And this time I am going to cut the protein down a bit, and add fat (coconut milk, some nuts, eggs each night) which should make it a lot easier and SHOULD work roughly the same. Who knows!

good call perfect that form. remember to use those HIPS

not directed at you anthony, but i dont get why some guys load up 3 plates on the squat rack...only to do a quarter squat? correct me if im wrong but i dont see much benefits from this...other than the egotistical.

BTW that label doesn't really add up...

41g per scoop

35g protein + 1g carbs + 0.5g fat = 36.5g

So it's missing about 5g of what? There's only 20mg of sucralose in there

Maybe they are loading it with maltodextrin under the "natural flavours" listing?

In any case, 4 scoops of that, and you are getting 20g of something, possibly carbs. If that's the case, your 20g of carbs per day just got doubled.

Well holy shit. I'm stuck in Texas using the hotel gym. Yesterday I did some cable rows, pullups. Lat pull downs when leaning back 45 degrees or so (Never done these before), bicep curls. And I've never have my Lats sore before. This is a whole new feeling! Finally lol. I'm psyched!

I usually don't work out on a day if I were to party the same night. Feels like such a waste.

is it possible theres a couple of grams of unlisted minerals or something? i mean, potassium is on the label and makes .2grams. im sure theres a few things in it that add up to make it not contain an extra hidden 5g of carbs.

I run an Isolate of the same stuff.



the container also has a label with the breakdown of the whey microfractions and what percentage of 7 different ones there are.

with all the labeling it seems to be a fairly 'transparent' brand. i would hope they wouldnt be hiding anything. but at the same time, i dont know really know what im talking about.

and all that being said, when I can pick up a 4.4lb tub of it for under $30, and it tastes fantastic, and doesnt make me want to shit my pants, its hard to beat.

if any of you guys have a pull up machine at your gym, put a medicine ball on top of the seat and push with your hands down, really good for triceps

Those aminos are already acconted for... And there's no way there's 5g of minerals and vitamins in there... Imagine eating a mouthful of multivitamins, that's what it would taste like!

To compare, ON Whey Gold is about 1.5g... So whatever these mystery ingredients are, more expensive stuff seems to have less of it

odd that there would be that much missing on the label..

maybe next time im at costco i will take a picture of the other brand they cary [unfortunately only comes in unflavoured i belive lol] but perhaps we can see if that isolate is more transparent than the caisen

although, do u really think there could be an additional 15+ grams of carbs coming from those unaccounted numbers?

holy fuck am i sore today from snowmobiling yesterday, went on a free 3 hour ride with this skidoo VIP demo event, had to dig my sled out of 4-5 feet of powder twice after getting stuck and i dont think i've ever been this sore in my life, forearms, legs, and back have me sitting in my computer chair barely able to get out of it :S
