    Bro that’s awesome. Talk about marathon not a sprint for sure if you’ve been doing it 30 years.

    I wish I could’ve been able to enjoy the Arnold era. That dude seems so cool and inspirational
    Hahahahaha fuckkk talk about back in the day before all the snowflakes.
    Your dad at 67 can bench more than me at 25. That’s just insane. Can’t blame ya tho. I’ve always wondered if working out helps or hurts the joints in the long long run of things.

    Mine started when I was 22. I weighed about 115 lbs and ate terrible. Started working with a guy I went to college with, he liked to lift and kept telling me I should start working out with him long story short, worked out with him for for about 2 years, started actually eating and gained about 30 lbs. Now he is married with 3 kids and doesn’t lift anymore but I’m still in it. It’s several things for me but above all it’s therapy the majority of the time.

    Overall exercise improves joint strength, but obviously there are always exceptions.

    Like running gets a bad rap for hurting your joints, research shows runners have higher bone density and joint strength and thus are less likely to have arthritis.

    I think a few aches and pains are better than dying from a heart attack on the couch tho :thumbsup:

    Am I doing this right? Post workout breakfast for gains?

    Egg whites, 99% lean turkey, a couple sweet potato chunks, low fat cheese on a low carb tortilla with the prized pop tarts? Or am I supposed to do one or the other? It was arm day so I’m eating both but knowledge for future would be nice :p

    Growing up in the 80's and in Iowa it was He-Man and wrestling. Back then we had no idea how to cut weight so literally wouldn't eat for most of the week, then gorge ourselves after weigh-ins Friday or Saturday. My uncle actually started teaching me about macros how to lift and eat properly early in Highschool. Lots of Eggs and Wheat Germ where consumed during those years.

    I’m still learning about meal timing but this is how I do it. Doesn’t it mean it’s the right way but I know you have a fairly long gap from when you finish your workout before you get to work to eat...

    I eat 50-60g protein as soon as my workout is over along with 1 pop tart. I consume them in the locker room while I’m changing or I’ll finish my workout and grab them to eat while I’m foam rolling or stretching. Then around 60-90min later I eat a full meal, usually lunch depending on what time I get to the gym.

    Post workout window is 45-60 minutes after exercise. So eating directly after is ideal.

    Want meals to be low fat but high protein and high carb.

    Its definitely wild. Pretty sure “hard gainer” is an understatement. I looked sick. I eat way more now but my metabolism is still high and I’m currently 30 years old.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    When I eat "terrible" I poop. I poop ALL DAY. I cannot gain weight on POOP FOOD lol. Before I lifted, I was same way. Mcd, BK, fast food, pizza rolls, junk, shit, etc. LOSE WEIGHT. It took me awhile to figure out I need "REAL" food. not processed junk. I can handle some, but it really depends what it is now-a-days.



    Looks great! Perfect.




    See photo of what I looked like when I ate shit food

    What are you eating for that post workout 30-60g of protein? I’m slowly trying to add a little bit of weight. Never know what to eat after a workout.

    Whey. Just add water. 50-60, not 30. That’s not enough :thumbsup:
