Thanks for the tips guys!

Basically...I'm a 5-6 day a week "worker outer" ( unless cicumstances pop-up), and have been for many years. On top of gym time I do a lot of "extras" that keep me fit, so motivation isn't the problem. My problem is just getting to that next level of "bench press" or weights in general. My cardio is fine...I can go to 10k if I pace myself right and my 5k time is decent.

I just like to set goals and see if I can get there. Thats what keeps gym time interesting for me. My short term goal for lifting is 100....as I'm almost there. After that I'd like to get to 150, and thats good enough for me.

One last question (CO)....would you say eat the carbs the night before, for next day training..........or eat the carbs a couple of hours before. I'm usually doing my biggest activity early afternoon, so that would put breakfast/brunch as the meal before. If I do any fitness at night its usually pushup sit/up unless I'm at the Dojo.

I'm just really trying to get some middle ground to keep my energy level up, but also be able to make some gains with the weights. I'm trying to stay as "natural" as possible.

I believe that every meal should have healthy carbs. That being said, the most important time to have carbs is right after training. Never wait more than forty five minutes to have some fast acting carbs. This replenishes glycogen in the muscles and aids in recovery.

O.k....thats good, I'll keep that in mind. I actually eat a "carb" (supper) meal about 1.5-2 hours after workout, so maybe my problem is there. I'll need to bring something to eat shortly after working out because my workout times won't really change in the near future.

Thanks for that. :alright:

It shouldn't be anything heavy. A banana, some juice, a little chocolate milk. Just something to put some quick sugars in ya.

Got mine from EBAY, only 50$ brand new. You have to wary of counterfeit copies if you don't buy it from the website. I lucked out. Some of the fake ones do not run in all DVD machines for some reason. If you know someone try copying theirs

But not if you are an RCMP applicant...or care to try and explain why you are copying copyrighted material while a police applicant. Usually can be had for just over $100 bucks, with all material you need in it and can keep for yourself.
