high protein foods, lots of them

Besides the usual meats a food that can really help is Tuna Fish. They are extremely high in protein and aren't unhealthy, mix it up with mayo and it tastes pretty good imo. You can also buy peanut butter with high protein, cottage cheese(tastes like shit), eggs(good source), turkey, etc..



Do not exaggerate with tuna. Sure it's high in protein but it also contains a lot of heavy metals. All bigger fish usually contain more heavy metals than smaller fish. So I would pick sardines or similar fish over tuna anyday(I still eat tuna but in smaller quantities)

Been training for 3 years straight now (body building) seeing some good gains.

When I need motivation I always look to Arnold Schwarzenegger (old school body building Arnie)

Just finished up my first 10K. I had just gotten off of work at 7 AM, the race was at 9 AM and I hadn't had anything to eat in about 14 hours but I still felt pretty good up until the finish when I sprinted at the end and felt like I was going to throw up for a second

Some genius posted Arnold's Pumping Iron in its entirety on Youtube:

Ran a Tough Mudder in August, finished in the top 5% and qualified for 'world's toughest mudder'. Not gonna do it, though, don't have the time.

Check out layne Nortan PHAT routine. That what I'm currently on its really awesome and y'all see nice gains. It's mix of power/hypertrophy. But it ill be a little tough for beginners at first if ur not an advance lifter

It's the opposite for me. Not that I'm unhappy when I'm not working out but when I work out and eat clean regularly I feel faster, stronger, less tired, and generally more energetic. Also, I obviously look better and laid more often.


I'm about to start a new chest workout today:
Incline Dumbbell Press...3 x 6-8
Smith Bench Press to Neck...3 x 8-12
Superset: Incline Flye and Dumbbell Pullover...2 x 8-10 each

Narrow Grip Bench Press...3 x 6-8
Narrow Grip Smith Incline Press...3 x 8-12
Superset: Flat Cable Flye and Pec Deck...2 x 8-10 each

Decline Bench Press...3 x 6-8
Decline Flye...3 x 8-12
Superset: Cable Crossover and Dips...2 x 8-10 each

Got it from here:
http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/dimaggio11.htm


I've been working out regularly for about 7-8 months now but only seriously for 2 months or so and I'm down 30 lbs and lifting more than I ever have. Need to cut down my body fat by another 1-2% to have fully visible six packs.

2 can of tuna can be very relative. You know, there are cans from 40-50grams of tuna to up to 150-200g of tuna per can.


Also, I think its pretty clear that the symptoms of consuming to much heavy metals won't be seen after short period of time. Get back to me after 20 years of eating 300+grams of tuna every day.

Run 15-20 sprints on a hill
Do 10 sets of 20 pushups
10 sets of 8 chin ups.
5 sets of split squats
And a few planks, pilate 100, and stomach vacuums.

Time to get shredded, fast, and attain lots of stamina.
