This forum is great, and much is devoted to different routines/splits and diet, which are indeed easily the two most important part of making progress (besides, of course, teh creatinez).
I was hoping that I might hear from some of you about the other things you do during the day that you feel keep you progressing in the gym (or things that people do that might hold them back).
-For example, outside of any other forms of exercise, I try to spend at least two hours a day or so walking daily. I haven't been lifting long enough to test whether walking less and eating, say, 200 calories less would impact progress one way or the other. I feel like it wouldn't.
-I try to never go an hour straight sitting down if I can. Nothing too big a deal--just standing up real quick, maybe stretching the hamstrings before sitting back down.
-I stretch before bed for five minutes or so.
Anyway, I just thought it might be interesting to hear some of the small things you guys do outside of the gym to keep on top of your games.
