I'm a new member,  whilst I was waiting for my new members login link to arrive I read this entire thread and I want to thank JRod. The help and advice that he has given has been so interesting to read.  I have bought many books and payed for website 'secret tips inside tips' (lol) etc over the years but none of them have been as useful as the info JRod had been kind enough to share on here!  I noticed he doesnt even complain about answering the same questions over and over a few times..lol..  I hope my question below hasnt already been asked.

 I'm really amazed at how you dont just give the simple answer but you go into great detail with your response to some really tricky questions.

 One question I have..  I need to increase my protein intake.  I have a good few solid meats but would prefer to include a few extra whey/oat shakes in there as it wouldnt be easy for me as it would be far more convenient.  The only problem is cost!  I live in the UK and to buy 1 (2kg) tub of whey is around £30.  I am wondering how many tubs of whey you get through every month?  I usually get through around 1 and a half tubs. Which is around £45 a month.   Would I be right that is you consume around 300g of protein from whey alone per day you must get through around £300 a month of whey alone?  (sorry I couldnt remember how much whey you consume per day so this was just a lucky guess from my poor memory! as I couldnt find the page you said about the amount of whey you use per day).

 My ques is...  (before you got a sponsor) whats the most affordable way to consume this much whey of around 300g a day?  It sounds a lot of money..  over a year it would be like eating the £value of a decent car lol.
 
 Last question...  what time of day would you take your last whey/oat drink?  is this not a good idea too late in the day?

 Thank u.



As for affordable whey, I would do research online and try to find a whey that has a good ratio of scoop size to amount of protein (the higher the better). Divide the #grams of protein by the scoop size in grams.

For example, isolyze would look like this: http://speciesnutrition.com/images/Isolyze%20Facts.jpg

27grams of protein / 29 gram scoop = 0.93 or 93%protein per scoop.

For what you are asking for you'll probably find something in the 80's, percentage wise.

bodybuilding.com might be an easy site for you to search through.

One thing to think about is that, gram for gram, whey protein is actually pretty cheap compared to chicken, beef, fish, and other sources.

The amount of tubs i go through varies, depending on how many shakes VS solid food meals i have, but i would say 3-4 (4 pound tubs) would be a rough estimate.

As for time of day for my last shake, it doesn't matter. I usually eat my last meal anywhere from right before to an hour or so before bedtime. Usually this last meal will be a shake, but once in a while it will be a solid meal.

Thanks very much for the nice words!

Haha... Ok, ok I'm here now.

I had no idea what it was, but I clicked on the link and took a quick glance.  I think this part will work for sure "Eat 500-1000 cals less than your maintenance every day" although it might be a bit much to just jump into it.  In the end, if you like it and it works for you then great.  Who knows, I haven't tried it so I can't say for sure; maybe I'll try it for my next show  Grin

Hey Jeff, great to have you on the board. Your work ethic is second to none and your physique certainly shows for it. Could you give us a brief overview of your experience at your last contest? Hows training coming along in the offseason? Any vids coming up? Thanks!  Smiley

Thanks!

I was asked a similar question after TU this past summer and here was my answer:

Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement now and along the way!

As for the result of the show (placing 2nd), its not what I hoped for going into the show, but I am very much ok and at peace with it. If I was not given a good look, a good chance to display my physique, then maybe I would be disappointed. However, I was given such a good look and comparison to Alan Bailey that I don't think the judges missed anything; they just preferred his look over mine (which is ok).

The result of placing 2nd may not be what I was hoping for going into the show, but I am very happy and proud of the way I looked--this was the best I've ever looked! All I have control over going into a show is how I look; I can't change who shows up and how they'll look. So I'm really happy with how everything went, because I did everything I could (show up my best ever) to put myself in a position to win my class and win the show.

Looking back on the past twenty weeks, this contest prep and Team Universe experience has been my favorite one to date. I had a great time getting ready for the show, a great time in New York (at the show, and the rest of the time spent with my girlfriend), and I looked the best I've ever looked. Winning would have been the icing on the cake; but I still had a damn good cake (best one I've ever had!).

In fact, I am more proud of and happier with the way I looked this year than I was with the way I looked last year (and I won my class last year). Furthermore, the fact the I didn't win has added even more motivation for me to make the changes I need in order to win that I'm probably going to be a better bodybuilder BECAUSE of this. Even more so now, I am so excited, motivated, and happy about this next off season! I know what I need to do to win this show, so now I just need some time and I'll put in the work needed to make it happen.

(above was taken from here (post #1686): http://forums.musculardevelopment.com/showthread.php?t=11634&page=71 )


Offseason is going well.  I plan on taking this year off from competing to allow myself more time to make the improvements I want to make.  As for videos, I've shot a few random sets here and there and I'll post them up on my blog (and here) soon.

you look great, calves are lagging but that's genetics and I'm sure you brutalize them to counteract that.  I don't believe that you are natural based on your look, so if you are take my skepticism as the highest compliment.  I'm a natural and I don't think anybody would distrust me Cry LOL.

About the calves, yeah, I know, thats never gonna change.  I'm sure that no matter what I do they will always be weak.  Also, whatever is I have that is weak is probably always going to be relatively weak to whatever my strengths are.   

About being natural, thats fine too.  Maybe I'm not natural, maybe I am, who really knows but me.  If I'm lying I'm gonna keep lying anyways; if I'm telling the truth, then I'll keep telling the truth.  Either way, in the grand scheme of things, none of this shit really matters anyways, as long as I enjoy what I'm doing (lying or not).  I'm just here passing through, doing my bodybuilding thing, trying to get ready for a show.  Just assume in not natural; no offense taken.

I considered responding to the above (italicized), but I realized its going to take too long and in the end, its pointless.

Thanks for the good luck.

VERY GOOD POINT!

I cannot wait to show you guys my next level of leanness. 

These photos are perfection in my mind.  I think everyone needs to realize that ANY LEVEL of CONDITIONING IS POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE TO ATTAIN, as long as they know how.

And,indeed. I have the how figured out.  At this point it is a waiting game of my choosing.

There is no difficulty anymore.  And I will show you that.


And yes, I will still eat Ice Cream and Cookies and Doughnuts whilst doing so!
