In addition to the other points, after returning home, do not take a cold shower. Instead, use warm or hot water. You supposedly get cramps if you take a cold shower immediately after a high intensity workout.

I think it's just your current fitness level. You've been away from the game too long, and you are exerting yourself more than you body can handle(EVEN IF you can play for an hour without cramps). Allow your body to slowly adjust and give it a month or so of CONSISTENT play time.

Has anyone tried transporting protein tubs?

I have to go back to college, which means hostel, which means travelling with luggage but I am taking my protein tubs with me! Its either carry the protein or not go to the hostel at all! Dedication ftw

Now that 5lb tub might be hard to put in a bag and might just become a nuisance.

Are those zip lock plastic bags good enough for carrying it? It is a powder after all

Or is the tub itself the best way to carry it?

Guys help please

Plastic bags are easy to carry than tubs while travelling but you need to be carefull about not keeping anything heavy on the plastic bag as it might tear open. A 10lb plastic bag can be easily carried in a back pack when compared to a 5lb tub.

Throw it in some Ziplock bags and you should be fine. Or just switch to using smaller containers like water bottles. Just make sure there is NO MOISTURE in them.

The guy probably spends 3-4 hours a day to achieve this kind of strength. Wonder what lower body exercise he might be doing, he hardly used his legs anywhere.

Olympics bodyweight workouts are one of the hardest. Check out the physique of an olympian in the athletics department. Pure function, nary a thought spared for looks or absolute power.

The lower body is undergoing as much stress as the upper body in balancing the hips and legs. Though, the hardest working muscles in this guy's body is the abdomen and back.

As for the exercises, squats, pistol/one-legged squats and maybe lunges and something for the calves. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a 1000% more sincerety and ***-to-grass squats. No half-assed 15 degree squats

Default Fat Burners

Guys, how many of you have used fat burners and how effective are they? it is already discussed on the forum about fat burners but i would like to know your personal experience and not reviews taken from other sources. Does it really help in taking fat burners to cut that last bit of fat?

Fat burner will help if the rest of your triangle is in order (Diet, Rest, Workout).

You have stimulant type and the appetite suppresant type. Depends on your goals.

Personally Iv never used any.

I got my friend a pack of Cytolean by Gaspari and it worked well on him. My cousin used San Tight with good results as well.

Whatever you do make sure you take it early in the day. If taken in the evenings your going to have a funky night without sleep.
