The Bodybuilding Fail-thread is pumping up with people's fails, or learning experiences as some call it.I've certainly had a few aha-moments as I read the stupid shit we've all done in the hopes of getting more muscle and less fat, simultaneously. ( See what I did there? )
Now, what has gotten you on the right track? Your bodybuilding WINS!
1: Morning walks. Some people call it cardio, but it's just a walk. Get up, drink 1 l of green tea, burn some fat, and I'm ravenous and ready to hit the weights and plates when I get home. Before I'd be nauseous from a few eggs in the morning, now it's pounds of beef and eggs before noon.
2:Short hill sprints. Anywhere from 40-100 m. Walk down, run up again. Has helped tremendously getting my posterior chain to fire together and helped me with my puny calves.
3: Ramping sets.
4: Water, and lots of it. Usually around 5 l para-workout.
5: Split routines. Currently liking
6: Eggs. Raw, fried, boiled, as long as it's eggs. 8 raw eggs = win protein shake.
7: Front-loading calories.A fancy way of saying breakfast like a king, supper like a pauper. A pauper than eats beef and meat anyway.
8: Supplements fail compared to eggs any day.
9: Creatine, fish oil/cla/gla/flax seeds and protein powder is food, not supplements.
