I’ve been taking that supplement for about 1 month now, and here’s my thoughts on it:

The girl that cuts my hair has noticed that my hair is a lot fuller and shinier
I’m eating about 200 less calories per day than I usually do
I am much more alert and focused during the day
My piss is bright yellow pretty much ALL THE TIME

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone. It’s a good supplement that has great results for the price.

No, it’s because of the high amount of vitamins and whatnot. I drink water constantly.

I drink water too much, you’ll see my with a water bottle most of the time.

I’ve started casual exercises, because I need to exercise and people suck so I’d rather not go to public gyms. Just planning on doing sit-ups, push-ups, crunches, and stuff I can do without much equipment when I feel like doing it.

You should buy a power rack, a barbell, and weights.

Yep, you can work out just about every body part like that. Maybe get a bench and a dip/pull-up thing.

Pull-ups = upper back

Dips = triceps

Use your barbell for:

bicep curls

squats = glutes, hamstrings, quads, lower back, abs, obliques

bench press = chest

deadlift = lower back, hamstrings, abs, obliques, a bit of everything

calf raise

I am currently at a place without workout equipment and would like to stay fit during my stay here. I have a sandy beach I can run on, and that’s it so far. Are there any activities that I could do in specific to keep fit?

 
Flag Post

run, pushups, pistol squats.

there is a guy doing the insanity training on youtube. note down the activities, the times needed with each activity, and you could do it.

A big hello! First time posting here in quite awhile! I’m so happy to see people are still posting in this thread and keeping it alive, and am so appreciative of every bit of information that people are putting into this thread. Keep up the good work, guys! I’m seeing a lot of good stuff.

I had my final competition, and am now formally retired from Strongman. At least for the time being. I’ll be putting much more time and effort into Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting, and above all my family and myself. I’ve not had much relaxation time, and I think it’s high time I started posting here again and spending some time on this great site.

Surprise protip: If you’re going for big biceps: don’t train biceps more than once a week. Remember the golden rule for biceps; LESS IS MORE. Your bicep is actually a fairly small muscle, and when you overwork it (which usually occurs right around 2-3 exercises) it retracts, and becomes smaller. The bicep only has two heads – hence it’s name – and in my personal experience, you should not do more than two, maybe three exercises for it at a time. A few of my absolute favorite exercises for biceps are

Barbell Curls
Preacher Curls (With a Barbell)
For an optional third exercise, I really like Farmer’s Hug (hold a weighted plate roughly four inches from your chest, with one hand on each side, and walk laps)

Something to remember to is that your bicep is responsible, or mostly responsible for almost all pulling motions you do – so it’s almost always being worked. Something that’s also helped me over the years has been training my biceps with my back at the same time – doing T bar rows, deadlifts, bent over rows, seated rows, and actually rowing on a boat. Your back and your biceps are good friends.

I’ll be checking up on this thread much more often, and am coming back to Kong (again). Cheers!

So, since summer started for me, I decided to do 5 laps in my pool every day. (1 lap is back and fourth) and apparently I lost 6 pounds! :D

isolating biceps will leave your body unproportional and you’ll just look ridiculous. as a beginner you need to do compound exercises, maybe one isolation exercise per workout, depending on what you want to grow stronger than the rest.
for example, if you want biceps you should do pull-ups because that also strengthens your forearm grip, your lats and upper back. or a deadlift which trains your lower back, forearm grip and hamstrings. then you can have a curling exercise. 3 sets of 10-12 reps each and bam, bicep/back day is done in about 45 minutes.

True that. I haven’t curled on a regular basis in over 2 years, and have seen tremendous bicep development with chins, pullups, and dumbell rows.
