OK... where'd the real Fiz go?

This is good info for people... my membership at Gold's doesn't cost as much as he mentions, but otherwise, spot on.

fiz typically comes above board when it comes to diet/exercise. No shock to me.

Month 11 of last year's new years resolution is almost complete... Been steady at 17 pounds of muscle gained for a few months now.

<< Can bench press all of you

That is really good Jase.....besides working out, what else did you do? My son is wanting to beef up and although he is working out a lot, he can't seem to put on pounds. He is only 16 and I refuse to let him have supplements.

don't let him if he's obviously still growing.

if he's as tall as he's going to get, there's really not much you can do. He has to fill out naturally. Most people don't hit their physical stride until their mid twenties, it's just that they've become completely sedentary by then and it doesn't matter.

there's really not much harm in protein shakes, but at his age there isn't much point either. just make sure (and this is if he's still growing. if he's 5'2 with size 13 feet he's not done) he eats a healthy diet, high protein, lots of good calories.

but honestly being a full time student + homework really doesn't lend itself to serious working out. the time commitment as well as diet dedication is really hard to do, especially when you've been at class all day and OH MY GOD A BAG OF OREOS

if he's like every single other 16 year old i see, probably nothing worth doing

Not much really. I've found that the "want to" to get stronger and push the extra rep or two does more good than anything.

Also, not taking time off. If I skip two workouts, it seems like I'm making up for a month's worth of work when I come back.

(For the record, I might have gained 17 pounds but I still look like a skinny f*cker)

I've also found that machines are pretty much worthless for me. If you can find a good dumbbell exercise to work that group of your body, it will do you much more good.

machines aren't worthless at all

resistance training is an integral part of an advanced weight lifting routine.

Last month noticed the big boy pants fit a bit tight.

Stepped on the office scale (almost never weigh myself) and noticed I'd picked up 10 extra. Work out every day, but when it gets colder I snarf WAAAAY more food.

The eat less/portion control + exercise harder/longer has resulted in the ten pounds going away and pants are loose again.

Thank you "eat less, exercise more", you are a miracle!!!!!!11111eleventyonephysiologyisfun.
