I have been bulking for nearly 4 months now and I was just wondering if a little cardio would help at all to minimise the belly fat which is starting to look pretty awesome. My diet's 100% clean except for the odd 5-6 beers on a friday or saturday night and I was just wondering if it was worthwhile jumping on the treadie a couple of times a week to burn a bit of that lard or at least slow it down a little.
Not worried at all...Just curious
I have been drinking powdered gatorade mixed with BCAA's pre/during workout and adding 10g BCAA's to my P/workout shake.
Is there any benefit to adding glutamine to my PWO shake also? I read somewhere that amino acids compete for absorbtion (but I can remember where) therefore I've cut the glutamione from my diet all together and was planning to use that during my cutting phase.
I know a lot of you guys wake up in the middle of the night and have a protein shake to prevent you from getting up in the morning looking a bit like my avatar. I'd do this as I'm keen to get the max out of my training however when I fall asleep and get up for a piss I'm in a complete zombie state and the idea of making a shake doesn't excite me plus I wouldn't want to risk becoming too alert and fucking up my deep sleep. (growing time)-
What I have been doing is drinking water before bed therefore I wake up for a piss and then shovel 5g powdered BCAA's down my gullet and wash it down with some water. This does not affect my sleep pattern as I get back to sleep with no problem... I thought I was on a winner with that one however I read in some article a while ago on T-Nation (which again I cannot find) that this method is useless as I am not providing the "bricks" or the "building blocks." (something along the lines of that)
Do you guys agree that this approach is useless? As far as I'm aware it's not the protein that does the building of muscle but the amino acids in the protein that do the work.
But what do I know? I'm just a newbie.
Do I really have to chug a full protein shake down during the night to get that extra growth?
Am I a supplement junkie?
I'm training to the max and my body is just starting to get used to it now after all this time. (8 months of serious DOMS) Thank christ that's finally eased of a bit!
My supps/vitamins I'm taking are per day- (basic description)
High potency Vit B's 1,2,3,5,6, (1 tablet with a bunch of other stuff in it)
Vit D (1000IU)
Zinc Picolinate (50 mg)
Magnesium (2g mixed)
Vit C (1g)
1 x High Potency Multi Vitamin (Balance Muscle Technology brand)
Rez-V ( Biotest)
Fish Oil ( 12-14g)
That's about it but I was thinking about getting into Tribulis and various testosterone boosters as I have just hit 32 yrs old.
Is that a reasonable mix of supps?
Is there some that I should be taking but aren't?
Or am I just a fucking supplement sucker?
I'm just doing my best to avoid injury and speed up recovery.
I'm not gonna proof read this as today was leg day and I'm spent but thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any good advise.
