Just curious as to what type of ab workouts you guys do? I'm thinking of doing the P90x Ab Ripper X for my ab workout.

hal0g0dv2 08-11-2009 06:38 AM

leg raises
that is about it 4 me

RRxtar 08-11-2009 09:20 AM

leg raises is about it for my main ab workout too. i also do oblique side bends sometimes. and i do what i call "Tyler Throws" (long story. haha) thats basically holding a 45lb plate out infront of you almost at full arm extension an swinging it side to side but with an arc up in the middle.

jeffh 08-11-2009 10:33 AM

you need to incorporate holding a beer at the same time tho haha

RRxtar 08-13-2009 11:06 AM

legs on tuesday. still cant even get out of a chair. damnit

SkinnyPupp 09-03-2009 06:21 PM

I don't consider protein or fish oil as supplements. So creatine, beta alanine, BCAA. Sometimes I'll take 5-HTP and Rhodiola.

are you supplimenting them into your diet? if it comes in a pill, liquid, or powder and doesnt come dirrectly from regular food, then its a suppliment.

No, it's food. A protein shake is a shake. With a lot of protein.

Fish oil, I guess you could call that a supplement.

So yeah, I supplement with fish oil. Not with protein shakes though. I eat protein shakes, supplemented with creatine and beta alanine :lol

jeffh 09-04-2009 08:59 AM

symantics is definatly relevant to a fitness forum...

looking forward to destroying wood camping this weekend, if for nothing other than the great workout that it is hahaha

as for a protein supplement to my regular diet, i just have whey in shake
and glutamein

SkinnyPupp 09-04-2009 06:46 PM

I just supplemented my diet with a glass of water. That was awesome!

does anyone here know the side effects of smoking pot + weight lifting? I heard it can hinder muscle growth, is this true or does it depend how much of a smoker you are? I smoke maybe once or twice a week.. but small amounts

im sure it might hinder muscle building a little bit , maybe try and cut back

I just remembered, right before I got sick, I tried something different with my PWO nutrition. I usually take a 2/3 serving of Torrent (for the insulin spike + BCAA's and hydrolysed whey). But since I am really trying to cut weight, I tried going with just whey protein.

I felt the same for a while, but then on my last workout, after weights I went to do my 12 minutes of HIIT on the bike. I literally could barely pedal! My legs just weren't working. Even at the "jogging" level of 9, it felt like it was already set to 16. That sucked.

To me, this hows quite clearly how important a high carb post workout shake is. Of course I "knew" this from reading advice from People With A Clue, but I wanted to see how big a difference there would be.

So if you are working out and NOT taking a high carb shake afterwards, you could be severely limiting your performance.

If you're wondering how it works, basically it uses insulin, which is a very powerful and very useful hormone when utilized at the right time (it can also be very bad for you if you have a lot of it in you at the wrong times) to shuttle glycogen into the muscles rapidly. This basically shortens your recovery time by a significant margin. If you are only workout out 2 or 3 times a week I'm sure it doesn't matter. But if you are doing weights + HIIT + steady state on off days, that means 6 days a week of training and you will kill yourself without something like this.

Look for Universal Torrent or Biotest Surge, or perhaps something similar. Or even a handful of raisins + whey shake + BCAA's.

yeah bio test is good stuff

SkinnyPupp 09-05-2009 08:19 PM

All that, and that is your response? :lol

Honestly I think Torrent is far superior to Surge. It's loaded with Leucine.

Oh I should point out that you do not want any fat in a PWO shake.

hal0g0dv2 09-05-2009 11:35 PM

SkinnyPupp 09-07-2009 04:59 AM

Just had my first workout in almost 2 weeks, after getting over a cold. And it was an ass-kicker:

5 minute warmup on elliptical

Bent-Over DB Rows - 50 lbs x 2 DB's
DB overhead push-press - 50 lbs x 2 DB's
DB front squat - 60 lbs x 2 DB's
Hanging leg raises

All for 20 reps, 40 second rest between sets

Then 13 minutes of HIIT, 2 minute cooldown.

I had to sit down after the last set of squats.
