  • I've found that the easiest for me is to include a protein shack with each meal. That's in addition to the protein that I have with the meal.
  • I've been doing intermittent fasting can't do keto. But I'm keeping carbs low. I really like the intermittent fasting. So far I've lost 7 lns and 3 inches off my waist.
  • Standing military press 5x5 Nautilus pull-down machine 3 sets of 8 Hamstring curls 2 sets of 12 Incline DB Press 3 sets of 8 DB rows 3 sets of 8 Seated leg extensions 2 sets of 12 Close Grip Bench 3 sets of 8 Nautilus preacher curls machine 3 sets of 12 to 8 reps Hanging leg lihts 3 sets of 10
  • rheddmobile is totally correct. Box squats are your best bet. Google hox squats. There are some excellent videos on now to do them correctly. I've done them myself to help me get my depth. One of thise plastic milk type creat is about the right height.
  • I've spotted for some guys that want to go for one rep to many and made me do all the work. I've found that just keep my hand under the bar not touching but just under. Works good that way if the bar drops just a little or they stall you can give just enough to keep the bar moving.
  • I am 70 had both hips replwced and arthritis in my back. Doctor told me not to squat deadlift or do powder cleans. I've never really been an ego lifter. Colse to it but always tried to do complete reps. I've really started being more concerned with proper form and complete reps. I have ti shake my head when I see someone…
  • I'm 70 and been on this roller coaster for over a year. At this age my metabolism is really slow. Which makes it really hard to burn fat and loose weight even with exercising 5 to seven days a week and eating at the calorie deficit that is recommended. I started intermittent fasting about 6 weeks ago and have dropped 7…
  • The rule of thumb for protein is 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound. You can up that to 2 if you're in a bulking phase

  • Beer is Corona premier 90 calories. I'm a big Jim Beam fan so limit myself to 2 drinks. I drink mine with ice and a little water.
  • I log My HIIT as circuit training and log the exact time
  • I had hit a plateau and wasn't loosing and weight when I came across this “5 Biggest Fat Loss Mistakes”, Phase One. I changed my micros according to this article. Now I'm back on track.
  • Yes you are right. But what I do is look for what matches the calories listed on the package. Using your shredded cheese the package say. Serving size 1/3 cup (28g) 110 calories. I look for what best matches the calories listed. I've found a lot the the food and calories listed in the data base to be off. Either in food…
  • Except the things that are in measurements like tablespoons and cup not everything is listed by weight.
  • I understand and know how to measure my food. My food diary is open. Take a look and see for yourself.
  • The 1600 calories is what Myfintess says I should be eating. My BMR is 1829. I have found that at my age and activity level and calories the 1200 works best for me. yes I'm measuring and entering my food correct, as correct as you can with Myfitness. For me 500 calories seems to work better than the 300.
  • Believe me I'm not trying to exercise the calories away. I know you can't do that. I'm just looking at some ways to change my workout. I'm also curious if anyone has tried what I'm thinking of doing.
  • Take a look at planks and the plank challenge
  • Everything rheddmobile is 100% correct. Your knees should not hurt doing squats. Bad form or weak hips can cause knee pain. I recently had hip replacement surgery and have been doing box squats to regain my strength back in my hip. Box squats are great for teaching you good form.
  • Do a search for 1rep max calculator I use the one on strength they work off how many reps you can do with a certain weight.
  • I've taken them for years. I take Universal Nutrition Uni-Liver 4 tablets before and after workout. Once had the gym owner come up and ask us why no one had told her about them before the help give you that little extra you need to make it through a tough workout.

  • A purpose of a lifting belt is to stabilize the core when lifting heavy weights. Don't get one the is small in the front and big in the back. There is not enough surface for the core to push against. Also did not get any one with a plastic buckle. At some point you will be putting so much pressure on the buckle it will…

  • I agree 2 hours is not enough time to rehydrate. I have lost 5lbs the day before a meet by sweating and then rehydrate after the way in but I had all night to do it.
  • People doing 65lb curls in the power rack
  • That's the reason you let someone work in with you.
  • I have 2 belts one 4" leather single prong that I use for training. I have blown 2 notches out doing heavy squats and deadlifts. Then I have my competition 4" 10mm double prong leather belt
  • Mine is open 24-7 so I think I'll hit it early
  • Yes I am eating at a deficit and I lift heavy 5 times a week 1 body part a day
  • That's what I have done. Also set up some meals but it still is a big hassle when you do something new
  • There are all kinds of home programs online that also shows you how to do the exercises. It sounds like you don't have a lot of experience lifting. So I would encourage you to go online and do the search see what comes the closest to match what you have.
  • 1/4 cup powdered egg whites with whole egg scramble with salsa and cheddar cheese
