I JUST realized upon posting in another person’s thread (him wanting to get defined and only being 140lbs)…you guys are the reason I am alive today.
8 Months ago when I was still ignoring advice to put weight on, I got down to 117lbs, heart failure onsetting, kidney and liver failure and I was going to be dead in another month. Now this site provided me my poison to get down that low (multiple nutrition articles on losing weight) but that is my own fault and now my weight gain of up to 21lbs now (138.5lbs today) I owe to you guys.
I just thought I would actually thank you guys…seeing as how I literally owe you my life.
Now to keep it on-topic for supplements and nutrition
Sadly, I have to stop my weight lifting due to Cross Country. I don’t want to really run although school requires we participate in one sport and this is the only sport I am naturally good at, that I somewhat enjoy and my parents are making me too haaha.
Anyways, I was wondering if I run Monday-Friday (Wednesdays and Fridays are ridiculously light days though) racing on Saturdays, what days should I hit the weights so that I don’t lose the size I worked so effin’ hard for? Also what program do you suggest (probably need a Full Body routine)
And for the nutrition part, would a 50/30/20 approach in carbs/protein/fat be enough protein to hold onto the mass (meaning am I going to need the 1.8-2.0g per lb of weight to keep my little muscle? or can I focus on the carbohydrates to make sure I recovery properly from my training?)
Thanks again guys
I owe you my life.
