  1. Thanks
    MV Owner got a reaction from Endomorph84 in Cutting and a desired body fat percentage   
    Thanks Endo,
    I have nothing to loose of course.
    I assume that myfitnesspal is counting my calories correctly but I may have this wrong.   I'll do what you have said, presumably the increase to 2600 and then back to 2100 is to sort of'shock' my body?

    thanks for this, I misjudged it on the day in question by not realising how much of the mackeral was fat / oil

    MV Owner got a reaction from faipdeooiad in Quality Multivitamins and Zinc tablets for beginers   
    All,
    I am new to working out and have been advised that I should consume some good quality multivitamins and some good quality zinc tablets.
    There seems to be a shedload of information out there (some probably paid for to be highly recommended) so I would be very grateful indeed for any recommendations.  I am UK based.
    Kind regards

    MV Owner got a reaction from Sasnak in Squats v Leg press   
    Im sure thats true, Im just trying to familiarise myself with it all really.  We also dont have a squat rack which makes me a bit uneasy.  I dont want to bust myself

    Thanks for your help all.
    Yesterday I tried to do some Squats in a Smith Machine which turned out just fine.  The only thing I may have done wrong was slightly poor leg position which I suppose wasnt helped by using a Smith Machine.  I am now going to include these in my routine so many thanks

    MV Owner got a reaction from Sasnak in Boxing Day Lunch drink   
    Friends,
    On Christmas day I will be having a lunch of masses of turkey with no alcohol but on Boxing Day I will again be having masses of turkey but inevitably drink will be involved.
    I have cut back on drinking of late (I have only ever had a maxiumum of 10 units a week anyway but since starting to train I havent drunk and  I am just sick of hangovers especially that lathargic washed out feeling.  I would be grateful for thoughts on the drink which will have the least significant dietry / body impact.
    On offer will be  Stella Artois, Red Wine or unoaked and light White Wine.  If I was to go for the Stella it would probably be around 5-6 bottles and if it was Wine, probably abour 2/3 to a bottle spread out for lunchtime to around 8pm.
    This may seem like a stupid question but I do want to let my hair down a bit on this one special day with family.
    Cheers

    Hello Endo,
    Thanks for all your advice whilst I have been here on this forum.  It has very significantly contributed to be being motivated to get back to the gym.
    I have followed your advice above especially with regards to the rows and in my other thread and I have now started to use an app called simple workout log which has helped me in tracking everyhting
