ach just to inform you subway is loaded with GMO, and their breads have huge amounts of high fructose corn syrup in them, you should stop eating subway and taking advice from a runt like true adonis...............jus t train like an animal, be consistent, and make an effort to train harder each day.
Yes I am aware there are a lot of negatives that go along with eating Subway... as I said, I'm ok with that.... its not ideal but its convenient.
and did you know splenda is rat poison
So be it - lol
hey ach, do u use any fat burners? From what I understand ephedrine is not allowed in arab countries (sucks -- i love ephedrine) they consider it an amphetamine/narcotic (eh?...) if I'm not mistaken?
no idea how the supplement system works over in arab countries, i just know the juice and hgh is otc.
I will eventually use a fat burner - not sure which one yet, will have to see whats available, whats gotten good feedback, etc. I did not know ephedrine was banned in Arab countries - but I don't live in an Arab country anymore. I live in the US lol I think ephedrine is banned in the US too though?
Ya I know for a fact Qatar and Uae are hardcore on ephedrine.. Lame. They do not allow ampheatmines, bronchodilators and yes class them all under narcotics and equate to even metaphetamines...
Well I know through a lab process ephedrine can be converted to meth... so I guess that's their reasoning.. maybe?
I want to move with the wifey to Qatar... it will totally suck working out and cutting especially without ephedrine lol.
I lived for a month in Doha, Qatar when our company opened up a branch there and I had to go train and prep the new employees. Nice place... Golds Gym had some weird hours there.... opens at 12 pm and closes at 3 am? lol
gross... why not at least add the low calorie vegetables? would make it taste better... for dressing you can use yellow mustard (very low calorie)
subway is shit... anything freeze dried is usually bad news from a health perspective... it's ok on occasion but i would never build a meal plan around it
I like the way it tastes dry with nothing on. Eventually as I diet down and decrease calories, I will begin replacing starches with green vegetables like broccolli, lettuce, green beans, etc.
Big Ach what type of lifting routine are you doing. What's the split, sets and amount of exercises per body part. High reps or low?
By the way with a forum full of ball busters you have always been a class act.
Thanks for the kind words buddy!
My work outs are high volume... 2 - 2.5 hours a day, 5 days a week, monday through friday.
I do a combination of both high reps (25-30) and low reps (4-6), I don't utilize too many different exercises per body part and instead do a select few but many sets 6-8 per exercise. I definitely use way more machines than I do free weights, probably a bad thing but I don't really care, I keep it fun. I haven't squatted for over 2 years and probably never will again aside from the fact that I don't like squats (call me a pussy, I don't really care) I developed a swelling on the back of my neck as a result from years of heavy squatting by holding the bar pretty high up and not on my traps, I know many squatters develop a squat bump, but it was definitely getting out of control and was giving me a lot of neck pain, So I stopped and it improved (though its not totally gone).... I do deadlifts from time to time, can't really say its an integral part of my work outs (though it used to be for many years) but now i'm just lazy - thats really my only excuse. I pretty much have stopped any exercise I don't enjoy and found an alternative for it, I know some will say thats bad, but honestly, I'm not gonna do this whole bodybuilding thing if its not fun.... I hardly ever do abs - they just sort of appear when I diet down, I really should probably start but I just find a hard time fitting them in, maybe weekends could be good. A lot of what I say may not be EXACTLY "the best bodybuilding way" but whatever, its always worked for me and given me good results as long as I stayed consistent!
