Wow just when I thought the retardation in this section had ceased...
From whom?
Protein isn't THAT hard to get out of everyday meals, hell, I eat over 200g protein a day. 1 can tuna = somewhere around 30g protein and it's not even filling. 1 cup milk = 8g protein, easy to ingest literally any lean meat = lots of protein Eggs = 8g protein per egg (I drink mine raw to ingest it quick and easy) Just saying, if you pick the right foods 1g protein/lb of body weight isn't as difficult as you claim it to be.
There are different egg sizes ranging from 3-6.6 if I recall correctly. Tuna, for the most part, is 28g maximum per can. 1 cup of milk, 200ml, if I remember correctly is 6.6g of protein. meat = lots of protein depending on portion size, as in tuna versus meat, tuna contains a denser amount of protein per 100g. To say you touch 200g protein a day, of solid foods (milk included) is for the most part over bloated.
Cook your eggs. Eating then raw is just stupid. -Digestibility/bioavailability of cooked egg protein: 91% and raw 51%.

[QUOTE=Region;35819803]Creatine = Water weight and 3-4 reps on your workouts. Protein = Muscle building. From personal experience, i suggest that you only supplement protein. Creatine is not needed.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Jallen;35820363]Getting an optimum amount of protein from your diet alone is extremely difficult. The guide I've frequently seen is 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight for making muscle gains. Well I weigh 180lbs, so I would have to eat 180 grams of protein every day. That's doable if you are a body builder who eats 6 high protein meals a day with nutrition as a key part of their life, but I and most everyday people do not have the time to ensure they eat such a large quantity of protein. If you are going to choose between protein shakes and creatine, pick protein. The creatine, while it has some benefits, is in no way essential. Protein on the other hand is the most important thing to give your body to allow growth and regeneration. If you do not get adequate protein, you will not get the benefit you could do, and if you [I]really[/I] don't get enough, you can actually get weaker and lose muscle. In summary, pick protein over creatine.[/QUOTE] Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate it. I'll stick with protein shakes then. It's damn good and I definitely saw an improvement from when I first started!

So I'm going to start lifting weights, going to follow the Stronglifts 5x5 program. Anything I should think of during this time?
SS PP or SL5x5? I totally forgot about SL and just wanted to hear what i should use, as a complete newbie.

Squats and DL's can be detrimental if you don't know what you're doing.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I eat a lot of egg and meat already. I also checked out Squats from the Stronglifts guide, I just gotta get new shoes because I only got running shoes, used to do a lot of cardio. What are some good shoes for lifting in?
I have just recently started to fix my forms on squat, and it sucks. I went from doing about 250 for 10 reps to only about 180, but I guess it is better to fix my form now before it causes actually problems.
Everything is shit right now. At my school I can easily without a problem squat 115 lbs for 5x5, and at least a set of 135 easily. At the gym, I can barely squat 100 5x5 the only difference is the bars seem thicker, but theres no way because i can bench the same (pretty sure) and for deadlifts holy shit, at school we used trap bars and I could do a set of 185 no problem, barbell at the gym 135 is out of the question. I'll shit my back before I start and to top it all off I've lifted since august with a fucking horrid diet. 6'0 155lbs, disgrace

IS that 115 counting plates only? Or 115 plates + bar? You should always include the bar weight, it's not like it doesn't add pressure. I'm gussing the one at school is 15--20lbs, and the one at the gym is probably 30-45lbs.
all weights include bar, assuming they both weigh 45, but there's no way they can weak i dont even know man
[QUOTE=Atrbfs;35829374]all weights include bar, assuming they both weigh 45, but there's no way they can weak i dont even know man[/QUOTE] If the bar is thicker, then it's obviously heavier. What's your program and diet like? What are your goals?
sl 5x5 from august to january, then from jan to now i had to follow something for a weight training class in school, back to SL i guess i exaggerated on the horrible diet. i dont really drink anything other than water and milk. i love strawberries and grapes and I usually eat chicken, have a turkey sandwich, cereal, or some other stuff. working for strength

It took me about 2 months to from 110x5 (base point, no prior leg work) squat to 200x5. Of course, that's just me, everyone is different and plus you're taller than me. But, I have a feeling you aren't getting enough calories. Count your calories for a few days, tell us what it was. Someone else on here will probably be able to help you better, assuming I'm not wrong :v: I recommend livestrong.com myplate for calorie counting
[QUOTE=Perfumly;35816735][IMG]http://www.bodyresource.nl/forum/imgcache/21652.png[/IMG] jeez does this faggot even lift? not impressed at all 0/10[/QUOTE] holy shit that cunts tiny. more muscle in my fingernails. [editline]6th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Shovelpass;35797332]A trap many people fall into when starting to lift weights is the myth of quantity = quality. You don't need to do a million isolations and whatnot like bodybuilders do, at least not when starting out. If you do it right, you're going to be exhausted after doing those big compound lifts.[/QUOTE] it never is quantity=quality, if you're doing reps comfortably, add more weight.
F*********. My extertion headache is back. I was doing high rep squat sets for change when it struck at 13th rep @ 100kg. Now I can't do shit without the pounding at the back of my head. It always seems to begin after 4th heavy rep. Gladly I'm going to Spain on Wednesday so I would have taken a weeks break from lifting anyway.

I've been doing weight training since about 2 years now and have been doing cardio all my life. One thing I noticed during weight training is that my sweat smells much more neutral and really doesn't stink all that much as when I'm going runnig/cycling or even a game of basketball or football. I'm curious, does anyone else have this? Google didn't help.
Now that you mention it, I think my sweat also smells less bad than when I go do cardio, but I'd imagine that might have something to do with the clothes (or the lack of them) in my case. Maybe the clothes you run in don't get a wash as often as the shirts/pants you lift weighs in?
My training shoes smells like death and decay, just after a week of lifting(lift 3 days a week), my pants also smell like sweaty balls. Even if I wash them every other week. In other news, finally got to lift today after having a cold for some days. I'm also going to go running with my friends sister. Wonder how it will turn out..
Shoes don't count, those abysmal cesspools of evil do not count.
Got depressed and ate under 500 cals for about a month. down from 138 to 133. now i measured and i'm like 126...
My shorts smell like nuts after just a day running in the summer.
[QUOTE=Region;35856733]Got depressed and ate under 500 cals for about a month. down from 138 to 133. now i measured and i'm like 126...[/QUOTE] Then do something about it. Stop drowning in your own sorrow, it's all in your mind. Nobody else is responsible to that besides you.
