Thanks alot Sohail, i was going to the gym now, but i was sure you must have replied to my queries, that was indeed very helpful.

Quote:
By the way, do a proper stretching after completing your workout, so that there is enough blood circulation for your muscles.
I do make it a point to do that.

What should be the pre-workout and post-workout food.

My post workout food includes 3 egg whites and whey protein but i have heard you should consume carbs too?

What about Creatine Monohydrate as a supplement i have heard its safe?

About Steroids, they are safe IF (REPEAT IF) taken and cycled properly. But it is tooo risky, the side-effects and results you may recieve can be horrific. It is actually not worth the risk. However, if everything goes right [IF!!!] then you can turn out to be awesome!! If not, you'll be suffering all your life (READ short life).

Always remember, Steroids and Dietary Supplements are very different. They are in no way similar to each other. They are way apart. Both need to suit your body to get proper results. Dietary supplements are much much safer than steroids.

ANABOLIC steroids are meant for you if you need to pack on say 15-20kgs of Muscle Mass(read compete) in a short span (read 2 years). So yes they are good for that.

Anabolics help in recovery, they dont necessarily make you huge.

EATING = BIG , LIFTING = STRONG, ANABOLICS = RESISTANCE/RECOVERY

Regarding your privates : Usually most basic Anabolic stacks begin with Testosterone. So if you keep shooting up for an extended period of time your body STOPS producing natrual test, resulting in your ***** shrinking. This can be countered with PCT(post cycle therapy) and going off the substance for sometime.

Exactly, if your going to compete and you need to get massive fast then yes its worth your time and money.

Here's a little secret, buy dextrose(glucon d) and chuck in 3-4 tsp with your whey protien!!

Monohydrate is safe. Just go for a "creapure" label brand, most reputed companies use creapure. And skip the loading phase

You my man, are very wise! Good to see that people keep themselves informed instead of going by the usual gym "myths".

Damn all this gyaan makes me want to go back to the gym.... soon hopefully.

I started working out after I completed my first year. I used to get too bored sitting at home in front of the comp the whole day. And I hated the way I looked with a tummy and fat all over my body. And that too at the age of 18 . My mom constantly used to dato me for being in such a bad shape. And this being in bad shape had spillovers in my life too. I never used to go out. I wasn't motivated to do anything. And was a lazy guy all around. So I got bored of it and decided to take action. But I didn't just go to the gym and start lifting weights. I devoted about a week to research diets, exercises etc even before I lifted my first weight. I worked out from May to September and then a bout of fever for 2 weeks and also my university started and I couldn't keep up with my strict diet so I stopped lifting(remember lifting is nothing without eating).


Now I don't remember my before stats but these are my after stats from abt 8 months ago.

Height: 5'9
Weight: 175lbs(79-80kgs)
Arms [unflexed]: 12.5"
Arms [flexed]: 13.5"
Forarms: N/A
Chest: 39.5"
Shoulders: N/A
Quads: 22"
Calves: 14.5ish"
Waist: 34"
Body-fat percentage: 14%

Supplements: Just whey protein. And a multivitamin pill taken once a day

Diet: Daily intake of about 160gms of proteins, 550gm of carbs and 90gms of fats.

Here is my detailed diet

I will just post the protein value in the sidebrakcets.
7:30AM Just after waking up: 250ml milk + 1 scoop whey(30gm protein)

8:30AM Breakfast: Usually cereal + milk + nuts (15gm)

10:30AM: Bagel + peanut butter + packet soup( 14-15gm)

1 or 2PM Lunch: Rice/roti + sambhar/dal + yogurt + sabzi(or sprouts) = (atleast 30gm I would guess, probably more)


5PM: Protein bar + some crackers (20gms) OR Milk + whey protein(25gms)

8PM or 9PM Dinner: 2Eggs + Same as lunch but usually with salads or something extra (45gms)


1030PM or so: Fruits and milk(6gm)

Total protein: 160+/-5gms.

On workout days I would have an extra protein shake(another 25gms of protein).

Training

Training was simple for me. Just three major exercises and supplementary exercises. For 2 months I was on the newbie routine to let my body and CNS get accustomed to weight lifting. I wanted to ease into it and get my newbie gains without too much effort.

Routine 1 (about 1.5 months)

Day One:

Bench Press 2 x 6-8

Incline Press, or incline Fly 2 x 10-12

Military Press, Or Hammer Shoulder Press 2 x 6-8

Tricep Pushdowns 2 x 10-12

Heavy Abs 3 x 10

Day Two:

Pull-Up 3 sets to failure OR latpulldown: 3 x 8-10

Barbell Row 2 x 8

Squats 2 x 10

Deadlifts, or Stiff-Legged Deadlift 1 x 10


Routine two(After I became more experienced)



Day 1: Chest and triceps and shoulders

DB/BB bench press : 5x5( if I went with a friend) or 4x8

Incline/decline: 3 x 8

Military press: 3 x 8

Tricep(assisted) Dips: 3 x 10

ABs: 3 x 10

Day 2: Back

Deadlifts: 3 x 10(excluding warmups)

Latpulldown OR pullups: If it was pullups 3 x till I can't do anymore, if it was pulldown 3 x 8-10

Barbell row : 3 x 10

You will see that I have no bicep and forearm exercises. That's because when you do deadlifts your forearms will get worked better than any other forearm exercises. And if you do pullups or barbell row your biceps get worked pretty good.

Day 3: Legs

Squats: 3 x 10(excluding warmups)

Leg press: 4 x 8

I also used to do sprints to build some strength.

That's it for my whole routine.

Hey Gordon and Stud: Gents, please be cautious about increasing the wt anyhow. Once the the waist size gets into a habit of growing, its very difficult to stop the growth

Couldn't help noticing, you've put on mainly muscle, and yet 5" on your waist?

Serious Mass
Recently bought it. Made a new diet and started taking this. Added approx 0.7 inch on my arms in one workout with the new diet and Serious Mass.
I prefer icecream. VFM, tastes better, more easily available.

Whatever you do guys be careful about what you do. I learnt it the hard way, let me explain.

As a kid in boarding house I suffered a nasty fall around the age of 10 years in which I got hurt at the base of my spine. After a few days of Iodex & Hot Water bottles the pain went away & I thought I had healed. However, a few years later I realised that if I arched down for extended periods of time (Like say when I was chaging my car's flat tyre) I would feel slight pain at the base of my back. I continued ignoring it as I thought it was no big matter.

Then when I got into 11th standard and the bug to build my physique started and I joined a gym. After doing weights for about 3 months I couldn't gain much due to my naturally wiry frame, hence me & my trainer increased the weights a bit more. Bad move as I learnt later.

After a few days I started suffering excruciating pain in my back. Consulted a renowned Orthopaedic surgeon who put me on painkillers & advised Traction at a physiotherapy centre. Once I had traction done my situation worsened so bad that I had constant pain from my wrists to my neck down to my feet, I found it hard to even climb out of bed.

Finally, consulted another expert & it was diagnosed after an MRI and a myriad of tests that I had a slipped L5 disc which was causing this pain. After that regular exercising and physiotherapy brought me to a situation where I don't have a problem doing day-to-day activities but it took a lot of time & patience.

Moral of the story being, please make sure your trainer knows what he's doing & don't over exert yourself. it certainly ain't worth a lifetime of pain & suffering. Like I learnt albeit a little too late.

Guys please note that this thead is more than 2 years ago. I guess Gordon and Studbuddy's measurements might have changed a bit now.

Im lactose intolerant, so no milk for me :(

If your worried about taste then just chase your protien shake with Glucose in water. H20 is a Bodybuilders best friend !! But glucose in milk wont taste bad, it will just get a tad sweeter (supps usually taste crap anyway)

Coaches Formula products are a money making gimmic.

Like I said stick to CrM brands that use CREAPURE. Everything else is not worth your $.

c3p0 is right though, food is the ULTIMATE supplement
