i workout 3 times a week and do cardio on 2 days.. and i agree its good to do it.. if you dont your not in shape.. sure your strong and look good.. but you wont even be able to run a couple hundred meters without gasping for air.. thats if you dont do any activity outside the gym

Good cardiovascular health also is good for building muscle.

hmm.. cardio.. dam im really broke between doing it or now atm.. the fact is im still light at hell (126lb) i dont know if i want to put in cardio into my work out just yet... my original plan was to work out with 0 cardio work till i hit my ideal weight (135-140) Hopefully by the end of the year or so... i actually plan to give the p90x a try (my cousin has it lol) i was hoping the program would cut off w/e gut and shape my over all body better...

Well if i were to put cardio into my routine it would probaly be this (ex. of what parts im working out dont worry im doing my lats, shoulders and what not)
Monday - Bicep/Tricep
Tuesday- Cardio
Wednesday - Pecs/Back
Thursday - Cardio
Friday - Legs

Atm im currently takeing 2scoops Quick mass with my breakfats and 2 scoops after i work out..
I was recommended by my brother to take Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein
1 scoops a day before i go to sleep as a booster..

Id like some opinion on this should i put in cardio at this point... and should i take the casein protein..
Also when u say light cardio.. could u expand on that?.. would a 30minute run be light? .. or uhh.. ?

Links to what protein im using and what i may start using

I'm thinking of adding whey protein to my normal PWO shake, but I don't know which to choose. What do you guys recommend?

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.

I'm not looking to replace my current PWO shake. I'm just looking for an additive that I can add to my existing shake to increase my protein intake.

well most pwo shakes have not that much protein compared to carbs.
and a normal shake has aprox 20-30g of protein i dont see why you would need to go over that,
plus 45 min later you are going to eat a low carb high in protein meal anyways

any updates on melonboy's progress?
been doing some research and peanut butter is one of the best bang for buck i think.
besides the high amount of fat, about 1500calories and 65g of protein in a cup.
is it a huge deal though if you're trying to gain a whole lot of weight anyways?
anyone have before and after pictures to show off?
also has anyone had a considerable gain taking creatine while on weightgainers?
i just went through a 15lb bag of PVL mutant mass. i think it's better value than the quick mass too for the price. but it sure is pricey.
you're supposed to go through the bag in about 2 weeks. $70-80 a bag

how long do you guys usually work out for? i've been hearing after an hour, its just using up too many calories. dont know if it's true.

OK, your workout is totally wrong. Yes, good concept on breaking up the major muscle groups, however you cant work out one muscle group / week and expect results.

First thing is first: You should definitely work in cardio, at least once a week, for at least 30 minutes into your routine. I try to work in 3 days, usually after a workout..yes Im dead, but meh. Or gym in morning, do a run at night.

As for diet, if you want to bulk up, a trainer showed me that you need 1g of protein / lbs of body weight, and 2g of carbs / lbs of body weight. Follow this and with a dedicated weight routine you should see results after a while. Once you are a desired weight, trim it back though.

Also, before and after a workout do at least 5-10mins of warm up, such as bike.

I have experienced some of this, but I have changed my diet and am consuming wayyy more. If I wanted to determine if this is a problem, lactose that is, whats an alternative? Shakes with water, or soy milk? What type of protein?

I had a suspicion that I was lactore intolerant when I kept getting stomach aches and gas after eating things with high milk content. What I did was, I went and bought lactaid supplement pills (no prescription necessary), and used them before I consumed any milk. Since there was no more stomach aches or gas because I took the pills ahead of time, I knew I was lactose intolerant.

Now, I just take those pills before I have a shake with milk in it, and 99% of the time I have no issues.
