If you go on an empty stomach, your body will turn to muscle for protein, as its an intense workout. Eat too much and you might throw-up, get cramps, etc.
would my body not use up the stored fats before it uses my muscle protein?

I would never not have any kind of food before my workout. Of course eat something about an hour or hour and a half prior to whatever workout you plan on doing. Or depending if your taking any perworkouts; which will set back your meal even further.

For HIIT I would definitely have something to eat prior before. Nothing heavy, but just enough. Never neglect healthy foods; either your goal is to lose weight or gain.

Google "Fasted Training" and read up on it. Typically for fat loss and fasted training you want something more prolonged, low intensity vs. HIIT. A slow absorbing proteins like BCAA or EAA is recommended for fasted training to avoid any chance of muscle catabolism.

so everytime i do anything kind of barbell curls or spot someone and gotta lift for them, i get this huge intense sharp pain across the other side of my forearm. so like the back of the forearm. Should i just stop doing them ? At first someone said perhaps if i use the ez bar and hold the bar with my arms more slanted itd be okay, so i did that for a bit and it seemed to work. the pain wouldn't come as much or if it did it would be small, but now even doing it that way i get sharp pain should i just stop ?

+1

best to eat 1 hour before working out. When i first started out, I ate then hit the gym right after, but I got so tired/weak half way through the workout.

Now i eat my dinner an hour before my workout and drink plenty of water during that rest period.

Tendonitis. I had this before when I would do any sort of curls. Start taking glucosamine

tendonitis or forearm splint brah. I just have this recently. stop curling for a week or two and work on building your forearms. you get this injury when your forearm cant support the workload your bicep can.

Anyone think they got a solution to my shoulder? When i raise my right shoulder, it locks out, and the joint(or something) pops out abnormally. My left side is normal.
So when i look in the mirror, its straight/v taper, then at the lat where the shoulder is, it protrudes.
Results in constant dis-comfort, cracking/grinding/locking. It's come to the point where i refuse to do any upperbody excersies, all i do now is cardio, and legs
I've gone to see the doctor, X-Ray's say nothing. He says to "excersise full range of motion/shoulder rehab excersises, could be joint/lingament" problem. I take glucosamine already. Can Anyone else recommend anything?

Anyone have ungodly tight hamstrings? Or hips/legs in general? I've always had tight hammies even since I was a kid, but they are getting worse. Ive been trying to stretch more lately but its tough when my legs are jacked from squats/DLs all the time. I might take some time off legs to focus more on stretching.

Anyone had any success with loosening tight hips/hammies?

I remember few years back, i could hardly reach my shins, or bend even teh slightest to the side with the hips. Now, i can touch my toes and my hips feel fine.
Takes a loong time, but stretching everyday will help, its also good to join in on those stretching sessions that some rec centres have, or some yoga/stretch class.
If i recall, p90x covers some stretching too. Probably be able to torrent that shit from somewhere.
I also heard stretching right after getting out of bed in the morning, and every night before going to sleep is good.

T NATION | Feel Better for 10 Bucks

Check out this link, it has a brief routine you can follow.

I swear on this and you will feel 5x better. My first few times I had to bite on a towel. good luck. I now include this in my training. 3x/week.

Edit: Many of my clients after complaining about a similar problem or pain in there knees or just lack extensibility, I have prescribed a PVC tube/foam rolling routine for them. Within a week 4 out of 5 went from bending over to touching their shins to being able to put their palms on the floor.

Bounce plates. They just look impressive, that's probably only 5 or 10 a side.

Whoever said weightlifting isn't good for cardio can ride it. Did the Chief the other day with a group of fairly athletic people. I was the biggest and heaviest guy there + I had a backpack with all my camera gear + 6 bottles of water, and I had no problems at all while people literally half my size were dying.

Day after, no leg soreness, nothing. Time to hit up some squats



EDIT:

Found this sick video, hope its not a repost:
