When I was lifting, (Until an old injury stopped me) I thought to heck with that expensive protien powder....Tried a couple of different brands for about 6 months and really didn't see that it fit in my program....I didn't like the taste anyways.

Multi vitimins, amino acids, protien tabs, Creatine, DHEA, and sometimes a substance called gamma o....I worked out 3-4 times a week and I'd eat alot.

Worked for me until I was in my late 40's, had a pretty good build...now I look kinda like a hairless, baby Orangatang! grin.gif Thats pretty much where it always ends up.

The one thing to keep in mind with the supplements like you are talking about is that once you stop working out all of the muscle turns to flab very quickly. Alot quicker then if you built yourself up naturally.

I know alot of guys that used that stuff in high school and college and now they have stopped lifting as often and they are all paying for it. Most have ballooned up and lost all defintion because they never burned off all the axtra dump they were putting into their bodies to build the muscle. All of it happened within a very short time after they stopped lifting. You are much better off working out naturally and controling carbs and protein from your diet alone without the extra supplements.

In the end just controlling your diet will work well although a little slower, (but even thats is debateable, I did some study of them while in school and got mixed reviews from people using them) and you will leave you with better overall health.

Most of the ladies don't want the big muscle meat head types anyways.

I alternate between lifting and cardio 6 days a week. When I decided I was going to get into shape after college, I went to a 1 hour lecture at work on exercising. They said that there are three keys:

1. Frequency

2. Intensity

3. Time (duration)

Essentially, the lecturer's point was that to continually improve the shape you are in, you have to work on one (or more of these three elements). Either you need to work out more often, longer, or at a higher intensity.

I have heard that you don't want to train the workout (e.g. lifting) the same set of muscles two days in a row, but I don't really have an official source for that information.

I believe in those three as they have worked for me. They don't add additional costs into my workout and they are all natural.

Just something to keep in mind.

That is true. When you are lifting you are actually breaking down the muscle tissue a little while you lift and when you rest it regenerates and repairs itself bigger and stronger each time. So if you don't give yourself a day off in between you don't give your muscle the time to regenerate itself. Atleast thats how it was explained to me.

Also I was always taught that when lifting the workout should take no longer then one hour. If it does either you are wasting to much time or you are doing to much at one time.

Gaining muscle is a slow process that I don't think should be rushed. If you are serious about it talk with some strenght and conditioning coaches or better yet some sports medicine people. Most won't steer you toward those supplements mainly becuase most of them are not tested or FDA approved so you don't know what affects it will have. You are better off getting stronger by lifting the extra money in your wallet that you are saving by not buying into the hype of these supplements.

There must be some truth to that, have you seen the governor of California lately.

Speaking from the female point of view - you don't need to look like a body builder to attract the ladies. The first muscle they will notice is the one between your ears.

The best source of protein for muscle building are lean meats, such as chicken and pork, and fish. Fats are important in your diet as well, just remember to make them healthy ones. Balance is key when eating for body building or weight control.

Good luck!

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
