i dont think food takes that fast to be digested though. iirc i remember reading somewhere that it takes longer than that.

maybe if you eat an american sized serving i.e. 3x more than you should be eating at a serving

well the possibilities are too numerous for anyone to speculate over the interconnect without a lot more info. i can tell you to lay off the NO explode or any other NO product for that matter. there is no concrete proof that they do anything for you. in fact most studies real studies show its pretty worthless. i could talk for hours about supplements, but there is a lot of caffiene in NO explode which causes dicomfort to some if youre not used to that amount

Maybe in status quo land. That said I am a fat ass.

2 anecdotes that may be helpful but probably not:

When I got to around 250# on my deadlift, I was stalling too. I was training only 1x5 at that time. The next few weeks I kept the weight at 250 and increased my volume to 3x5. After 3 weeks, I went to max and pulled 300 1x3, still overhand only. I continued from there doing 3x5 at 250 + 10 per week.

Later I began stalling at 300 3x5 due to grip. After 4 reps, the bar was no longer firmly against my palm (it was resting in the crooks of my fingers). By the 5th rep, the bar was almost out of my grip entirely. Switched to mixed grip and voila, progress proceeded.

So uh, switch up the rep scheme and/or go mixed grip.

This sounds like perfectly legit advice to me and I'm gonna implement it right away. Stagnating on deadlifts for so long has probably hindered me in other areas, as well. Definitely time to turn that around.

Now if I could only figure a way to make slight progress on the overhead press. I have my fingers crossed that perfect pushups might help. I was also shocked to find out I can't do a single full motion diamond pushup. I seriously had a what the fuck moment.

If I go another 2-4 weeks without minor progress, I think I'm gonna try tossing in a half liter of 2% a day.

As far as the food question goes, I don't have time to eat a big ass breakfast on my third day. I was debating what the best 200 cals to consume would be on those mornings. Carb, fat, or protein... oats, pb, egg beaters, or yogurt, for example. I'm leaning towards pb as the volume of food is so small.

pb would work. i always have a protien shake in addition to a little solid foor even if im not working out in the morning. its good stuff to have around

PB and coffee seems to work.

If I forget to do shoulder dislocations before squatting, I can't get the bar to the 'low' position.

I think perfect pushups helped my overhead press. I also took it a little slower between sets at one minute as opposed to 30 seconds. I don't want to go longer than that, though.

I feel good about increasing reps on deadlifts. Stronglifts says to only do 1x5 because squatting 3x / week is rough as is. I've been stagnate, though, and I have overhead on deads I am not utilizing, so I'm gonna push them for a while.

I'm reading "Brawn" by Stuart McRobert and enjoying it. He's slow to get to the point, but it seems like a good read.

Some (thankfully cheap) pants I bought at 120 lbs are starting to get tight in the thighs at 135.

yes squatting 3x/wk is prob too much

Hi everyone,

I'm 24yrs old. I want to do situps and pushups but I don't know how many should I make per day?
Can any one help me?
post #26 of 57
A billion of each.

Anyone else think that having a pump in your delts is the most painful? Sure, after a heavy leg day I wobble around and might feel kind of queasy, but no other muscle group seems to have the same throbbing feeling PWO.

I have 2 quick questions. They are more health/nutrition related, but I figured you guys might know it anyway.


1. Why is there such a hatred of Carbohydrates? Do Carbs turn into fat?

2. Is it bad to eat meals right before sleeping? Is less fat burned from the meal because you aren't expending energy?

Thanks.

Everything turns into fat eventually; its the long term storage format for your body.
