    out of the loop for any post before this but don't bother with diets, they're a waste of time

    2-3 hours before going to the gym eat 100g of carbs(not solely 100g of a carb food, check the carb content and measure out how much you'd need) and around 20g protein. Gives you all the energy you need for your workout. My main staple pre-workout is basmatti rice and chicken/salmon. Some people bother with checking out the fat content and all that, I don't really bother. you only really want to be doing that if you're looking to be a bodybuilder. if you're just looking to get a decent shape and get stronger, don't sweat it. look at the strongest men in the world - Eddie Hall, Brian Shaw - you wouldn't look at them and think shredded, but they're the strongest guys in the world

    A good place to start post-workout is around 45g of protein. chuck some carbs in so your body gets some fuel to actually repair the muscles and add some vegetables to get your vitamins and help digest the food. if you're strapped for cash eggs are your best bet, one hard boiled egg has 6g of protein


    it's a lot simpler than a lot of these nutritionists(unqualified dietitians) on social media make it out to be. don't forget that at the end of the day humans were made to be wild animals. strain the muscle, muscle tears, food intake repairs the muscle bigger than before to avoid a tear from the same strain. simple as. eat right before and after working out and if you need to get your calories up chuck whatever sugary shit you can find into a blender and drink it(although if you can afford it healthy meals are always better), that way your body isn't in a deficit and using muscle for energy. good luck my friend

    The video that basically forced me to hit the gym for the first time

    It's nearly a bi-monthly ritual for me to watch this video

    No, I'm not ready yet to take an after pic

    Just uhh. Keep in mind that consistency is key. We're all autistic enough to do rollenspiel on Gerhard's Modification set in Half Life 2 where just 15 minutes of gameplay is the only consistent lore

    Just go balls deep on the food, you'll grow used to it.

    I mean when I eat I EAT, and I don’t got an affiliation with sugary stuff so I imagine my diet is good enough

    eat meals that would typically be eaten to lose weight but eat them a lot more often throughout the day

    i.e salmon, rice and vegetables. people on fat loss diets eat that because it's low in fat, low on calories but tasty and very filling. while people looking to lose fat want to keep the calories down, you want to keep them up to fuel muscle growth. that means eat similar meals to that but eat them perhaps 3-4 times a day to make sure you're keeping above your calorie limit. your fat % shouldn't go up but your muscles will get all the nutrients they need. put clean proteins and carbs into your body and you're good to go

    you've probably heard of the word dirty bulking, which means throwing whatever shit you can find into your body to keep your calories up. i.e fast food burgers, pizzas, kebabs. it works but you'll put a lot of fat on in the process and it's not exactly healthy for the inside of your body. the only people who can really get away with that are strongmen like eddie hall or brian shaw

    Just had a guy do 3500m in 12 minutes during the endurance and strength test

    I've never seen a man run as fast as he did for so long

    holy shit I can't even fathom what that's like
    best I did in 12m was 3000m and I've been declining ever since then because I stopped running as much as I used to

    I've only seen one other person run that fast for that long, and he was at 3800 at his peak. It's blisteringly fast to the point where you get overtaken like 3-4 times while running the laps. And then you got the strength test afterwards too that they both beat

    Averaging 2600 now every time I do the test. Dipped 7 meters below but that's because I'm still in the process of recovering from an overstressed muscle

    I did it in 12 min to build up better stamina. I always do it as a wrap up after weight routine

    Do it before

    Warms your body up and gets your blood flowing through your muscles at the intensity of which your workout is going to be at to prevent injuries and muscle aches

    Thing is I bike to my gym and it is uphill so I count it as cardio which gets me warmed up.

    Should still really do the run before any other workouts to get the max out of it

    You will be relatively stationary once you've done the biking and running, so it won't impact targeted workouts

    do you run 3k in 12m after every session? that'd be my max and I'd never get any benefit from that except for exhausting myself completely without a purpose

    if you manage to do that without exhausting yourself though, damn, colour me impressed

    I try to separate all my targeted trainings on separate days completely - things like strength training, speed training and conditioning. It's almost 90% focused for ice hockey, and looks like the weekly routine for track sprinters

    @Ond I said I'd update you on my zinc intake. It has made me more aggressive
