Moishendlishus saidNO Explode is the pre workout drink I take. I was going cleaner with Beverly's Uplift, but I think the Creatine was helping me, and also the muscle soreness relievers so I'm going back to it.
Ok, so my questions.
I am trying to bulk. I don't however want to become fat and lose all the tone I have right now. I eat a lot, and fairly healthy (eat out too much and aware of it) but I recently saw a nutritionist who told me that too much protein is actually really bad for you. What are the recommendations to be gaining weight and mass without adding on the extra fat for cutting later? ( I workout 5 days a week, split between body parts and sometimes a day of just abs)
I also take Isopure Mass after my workouts for gaining. Clean source of whey isolate I believe, 600 calories, 55 grams of protein per serving size (6 scoops) Is that a useless supplement that I'm wasting money on?
I grew fast, have scoliosis, bad knees, and misaligned shoulders. I've found incline chest to really hurt my shoulders on the bench and not much better with dumbells. What exercises can I do to increase that area of my body without all the pain in my shoulders?
I've also found fly's are just not effective. Cable crossovers are pretty good but my shoulder goes kinda outta socket, any other exercises for building up the crevice between the pecs and making them connect? Same problem with decline. About the only bench press exercise I can do without major shoulder issues is regular bench.
Same questions for butt and legs. Can't seem to do squats. Can do deadlifts, but not as high as I should be on the weight. Are there other exercises you recommend that target these problem areas for people with bad joints?
thanks for stopping by ...now to answer the questions ..
1. i cant really tell u how to gain the mass without knowing the basics. like height weight stats bodyfat. but answer back and i definately will tell u
2. isopure mass. -- thats gotta be alot in money . cheaper mass alternative is this
8 ounces lowfat blueberry yogurt
1 med banana
1 cup of milk (2 percent fat )
ice cubes for texture (optional )
water to then if needed
calories 488 carbs 80g, Protein 24 ,fat 8 grams ...
now u can add a scoop of regular whey for bigger protein intake . cheaper and healthier.
3. Shoulder issues - take fish oil if not now . 6 to 8 grams. see how that is . also look above at posts about shoulder exercises and also started stretching them . I would also buy a bodyband to rehability the shoulders honestly the pdf i added first would be a great place to start . I have had two dislocated shoulders and I def can do the big weights now but it took me a while to rehab them to get where i am with good supplements as well for joint support. Animal flex is what i took..very cheap to buy over the web. but best is super cissus rx ...but it is expensive . once ur shoulders are in good rehab then i would move onto Hammer strength machines . but we are dealing with rehabing first so they can get strong and flexable first .
The regular bench with a dumbbell is ok or if going to do it do it Powerlifting style for the bench.
But i would also take some time off a week . cause i dont know if its cause ur overworked or not . cause even with the weakest of shoulders after building them up you should be ok with most bench machines. or do the bench press machine in where u push outward cause its lesser of stressing shoulder.
Rehab that shoulder though.
4. exercies for legs. thats a tough one honestly cause i dont know how bad ur knees are. i got one bad knee but i still will do this
Lying squat machine.
Hip Adductor machine (these two are main ones when in rehab)
hip abduction machine
Most Important take home is this
if hurting for couple of weeks if not month concentrate on higher reps lower weight to build the muscle up and then do alternative exercises. the process should be for what weights do to
Start with bands (they will work more than u think trust) then once bands feel decent (squatting with bands even) then work your way to machine assisted (even smith machine-- i loathe but still its just for rehab so not very long ) then dumbbells then barbells
hope this helps
but u will find plenty of relief once fish oil and animal flex (joint support is there then rehab yourself )
