    • My cardio is pitiful. I just got back from the gym and playing basketball with a couple of guys there and I had my hands on my knees in no time.

      Anyone else find it funny that people circle the gym parking lot looking for a close spot? I mean, you are going to a place to workout but you dont want to take a few extra steps to get inside the place?

        I suppose there is some irony there but sometimes I do that because I know I won't want to walk too far to get in my car after I'm done.

        • Exactly. I'd circle as well but like Killxswitch said, after my workouts, I want to walk as little as possible.
          That was then though... I live across the street from my gym now. Best thing ever.

          • I need the low down on protein powders. Are they worth the cost? Which ones are the best? Are there more cost-effective substitutes? Gimme the jist.

              Protein powders are definitely worth it, because it's very difficult to hit your proper macro intake without them. (At least this is what I've found.) The right one is based upon your budget and goals really, so I could help you more if you provided me that.

              • Whey Protein. It is your friend.
                If you only take one supplement, this should be it.

                • I haven't taken any supplement in months but my strength gains have been great, even though I lost some weight. I'll probably be looking for some protein, any suggestions.

                        I've spent way too much money on supplements in the past, I'm looking for something cheap. My goal is just to get mainly more strength and maybe even gain some weight.

                        • I'm going to start the P90X in about a week. Right now i'm 5'9, 153 pounds, around 17% bodyfat, 32 inch waist. Just as recently as April 2010 i was 171 pounds and a 35 waist and about 21% bodyfat, and ive lost all this weight and fat simply by dieting better (but not great) and pushups. But i want to go to the next level and get fit. I'm kind of a "skinny fat" guy right now, if you know what i mean. My goal is to cut down my bodyfat from 17 to 9-10% and get a more toned, defined body. So P90X for 90 days, and then after that I plan on joining a gym and lifting 2-3 times a week with cardio a few times a week. Any thoughts or advice before i start?

                            Well, strength isn't going to really come from a powder. That's going to be from how you train. If you're looking to put on some weight, I'd look into something like Monster Mass. I found it to be really good, and it will definitely help you in taking on some extra calories.
