Default j1r!!!'s Diet - 10-10-2008, 05:18 PM

Cross Country Season will end tomorrow so I'm pumped to get back into working out. I started off just doing some stuff on my own the last time I started. Could you guys give me guidance on workout routines, diet, etc? Right now I'm currently 5' 6'' and about 125 lbs. Thanks so much in advance for your help!

Here's also a specific question: How much cardio do you need in your workout?


Do work!

Cardio? Your so small/Lean now Id be willing to bet you don't need any. LOL I do it 1 to 2 times a week for about an hour. But Im leaning out pretty good with my diet alone.

As far as Workout and Diet. What do you want to do man? You want to Bulk(put on muscle) or Just GET Stronger or what? Because the diet will have to fit the routine.


IF you doubt yourself you've already lost

Thanks for your advice about the cardio. I just thought it was something you always added after your workout. I'll probably do the fitness bike for my cardio to start off and then run for my cardio after a while.

I'd definitely like to gain muscle and get stronger if those two things are possible at once. If I had to choose one over the other I would like to gain muscle first and then get stronger.

you can do the cardio if you want, but with you being young and coming off cross country season i would recommend you to do it as LITTLE as possible to really allow your muscles to grow. when im maintaining or trying to gain muscle i do absolutely zero cardio, even when im trying to loose weight im at max going to have 3 cardio sessions a week @ 20-30 min.

and yes gaining muscle and strength at the same time is possible, and at your beginner stage it is guaranteed.

just get your rear in the gym, do all the major movements :bench,squats, lat pulldowns,lat rows, shoulder press/raises.

AND EAT, MEAT!

x2.

The best advice you can have is to follow along with a basic powerlifting routine and premise. The powerlifting routine will focus on heavy compound movements. You need to eat EVERYTHING in sight (this goes mainly for whole foods) if you've gotten away from it, get back to 6-8 meals a day. High protein intake, Moderate carbohydrate intake,and moderate fat intake. I would also recommend that you do not do cardio, and allow your body to recover properly from the season and from the workouts. That is by fay the fastest way to put on strength and mass.
