So, I woke up today from a weeks vacation. I have had nothing to eat yet this morning therfore, empty stomach. I weighed myself and I am 158.5. I’m not laying the blame on anyone but myself, but about a month ago I was up to 168-170 and very content with my gains. I got “depressed” or whatever excuse I have and stopped eating and lifting. I am ready to bounce back and get back to my goals. I am doing this for myself and no one else. I would, however, appreciate any feedback. I am going to try and post what I eat and how my training days are. Tell me if I should be doing something more, less, etc. Here are my questions though…
I am taking the creatine I ordered from this site.
What should I take it in?
Let’s say I get too full off of liquids.
Should I take my protien first or after my workouts? If before, should I also take after? I’m kinda on a budget.
On the second four weeks of my training, it goes to a strength phase. 12 sets of 4 reps. Is there an easy way to know how to guage your weight without getting destroyed by your 8th set? If not, just trial and error?
Of course, like a lot of people on here, I am here to gain, not lose, I’m alright sized and “cut.” The only thing that has confused me about lifting was the diet part. I figure, from what I read, I need 1.5 grams of protein per body weight, surplus of good calories, and as little fat as possible? Just tell me about dieting, and if you tell me to go to the dieting page, at least give me a helpful link.
Thanks to anyone who replies. I’ll check up on this periodically throughout the day.
