Put a lazy person on any equipment and they’re wasting their time. I gotta say, i love the swiss ball. 4 minute plank or 4 minutes on facebook. i know which one i’d take…..March 8, 2012 at 6:50 am #17825
Crazy Planking Ray. I switched up my regular plank intervals to 2 min, 1;30 and 1 minute with minimal rest in between. Hurts like hell, I got a pretty fit Chinese friend at the gym to try it and he went into the pain cave.March 8, 2012 at 11:57 pm #17833
Confession: 4 mins is the goal…..March 9, 2012 at 6:13 am #17837
As Sir Squats A Lot I now dub thee ” Plankman” Good riddance Ray.March 9, 2012 at 7:40 am #17838SteeevyoMember

Arnie was into realdoll pedophylia?
Just came back from one of my best workouts of 2012, feeling good feeling healthy!!! Ran like hell for an hour and then pumped the shoulders and triceps hardcore. Hello endorphins <3March 21, 2012 at 7:29 am #18005May 17, 2012 at 6:27 am #18899VincentParticipant
Picked up a holy bible from Amazon China for only 120rmb. Delivered the next day and been turning pages ever since!
Friggin love this book!
And, oh, hi there 🙂
Got this stuff shipped from the USA. Ended up paying $147 delivery costs but in the end the items are about the same price as if I would’ve bought them online in Belgium. So pretty good deal still!
For example I used to pay 600RMB (75eur) for the 5lbs BSN Syntha-6 protein powder. I paid 47USD for them on the website, after shipping I ended up paying 65USD (50eur) per container. 33% less!May 17, 2012 at 6:43 am #18900
I scoffed at this thread but now have a serious question – what are the best exercises to tone arms and legs for girls.. don’t want to be ripped but just get some definition. Already doing diet-y stuff but would like to do weights as well. Have no idea where to start.May 17, 2012 at 6:51 am #18902Chris ZiichModeratorMay 17, 2012 at 7:50 am #18903
Cheers, but I am hoping a combination of weights and a thrice weekly workout of Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease will have me looking like Brendan in no timeMay 17, 2012 at 8:53 am #18904JustinParticipantQuote:have me looking like Brendan in no timeMay 17, 2012 at 9:13 am #18905
Danielle: try to focus on full-body exercises, such as burpees and lunges combined with dumb-bell lifts. You’ll work the areas you mentioned, but it’s more beneficial and you’ll get faster results. Aerobics with light weights is also an awesome way to build strength progressively and improve your endurance. (dinosaur squatting guys audibly scoffing but couldn’t handle 15 mins of high-intensity aerobics)….
PS: you wanna look like Dave Nvarro’s woman (ex?), there’s plenty of hospitals here can help you with the upper body part…May 17, 2012 at 9:20 am #18907
PS Thanks Ray, I’ll check out some sites too. r/fitness has been pretty good for protips.May 18, 2012 at 8:13 am #18911BrendanModerator
@ Chris: LOL! So true.
@ Vincent: Looks like you’re on a mission! Arnold’s Encyclopedia is still one of the most detailed books on bodybuilding available by it’s sheer quantity, but the routines of old (steroid using pros) were insanely high volume in comparison to what is known to work best today. This argument goes back as far as the feud between Arnold & Mike Mentzer at the 1980 Olympia!
@ Danielle: Whilst flattered that you too aspire to look like me, I think you’re at safe distance from that goal for all eternity. 😀June 4, 2012 at 9:14 am #19186
to revive a great thread:
how much protein you guys aiming for on training and non-training days?June 4, 2012 at 9:19 am #19188CharlieKeymasterQuote:how much protein you guys aiming for on training and non-training days?
I aim for my body weight in g/protein but almost never actually hit it. Even with eating 6-8 eggs for breakfast, three meals with meat, etc. It was a lot easier in the states! I supplement whey protein on training days. I don’t drink milk anymore because I’m trying to cut fat.June 4, 2012 at 9:25 am #19191
yea that would be over 180g of protein per day. i felt gluttonous eating 2 chicken breasts after the gym yesterday.
check out what this guy eats: namely the steak, avocado, feta pizza MMMMMMMJune 4, 2012 at 9:29 am #19192
cannot believe I just went on a website called TESTOSTERONE NATIONJune 4, 2012 at 9:42 am #19193
I go for about 200 gms, based on my goal weight of about 195 pounds. get it easy most days.
protein mix immediate post workout, water and milk (2 scoops) = approx. 50 gms
10 large eggs+ approx 60 grms
large chicken fillet lunch = approx 30 grams
night: brown rice, veg, chicken =approx 20 -30 grams
pre-bed: protein shake: 750 ml low-fat milk, 5 tbs non-fat yoghurt, 2 scoops whey protein, 1 cup rolled oats =60 grams
