GymJunkie’s random list of gym tips

1. Creatine Monohydrate is a very cheap, safe, and effective (for most) supplement.

2. Always do cheat meals or even cheat days on a particularly brutal day in the gym so the extra calories/carbs/fats can go towards energy and recovery.

3. Work every muscle, not just your chest and arms.

4. If you are unfamiliar with an exercise someone is doing, wait until they are finished with the current set and ask, most people will happily tell you.

5. A lot of people think the Abductor and Adductor machines are for women but an under developed muscle surrounded by very strong muscles is a recipe for an injury.

6.  Don’t be afraid of fast food if you are on the go, just watch what you eat.
6b. If you need a lot of calories quick and can squeeze in the extra fat, 3 McDonalds hamburgers equals 720 calories.

7. Drop sets, forced reps, Negatives, Rest-pause, Super set, tri-set, giant set….all these can be very powerful techniques to use, but be careful not to over use them.

8. Slow progress is still progress.

 

Bullet for my Valentine - Waking the Demon

Even if you’re not a fan of them give this one a try, it is by far their heaviest song. I will try to change up the songs I post from metal, rap, screamo, hip hop, etc to give a variety.

New Overnight Oats (gainer) recipe

I thought of this earlier today and will know tomorrow morning how good it is.

3/4 cups old fashioned oats
2/3 cup milk/almond milk (I used fat free milk)
1 container of Dannon Light and Fit Banana Cream Greek Yogurt
1 scoop Vanilla protein

In the morning I will add slices of banana and crushed walnut pieces. With 1oz Walnuts, 1 medium banana, and the protein I used is Syntha-6  the totals are:

Calories: 854
Fat: 27g (Healthy fats, 17 being from the Walnuts, exclude if you can’t fit them in)
Carbs: 106g
Protein: 55g
Potassium: 1,091mg
Fiber: 16g
