    All exercise topics, successes, diets and routines that worked for you.

    I thought it would be interesting to create a thread where we could all post our routines, diets, and exercises, and share what has worked and what hasn't. If you have advice that someone can benefit from than that would be helpful too. Summer is knocking on our door, let's get this started :)

    Ugh the bread thing would be very difficult for me. Do you stick to this ever day,or do you have a "cheat" day? For me I have to have a cheat day where I don't worry about what I eat. I follow Bill Phillips "Body for Life" program and have had great success.

    Compound lifts are lifts that use every muscle and work on overall strength/fitness.

    Most Important:
    Bench presses
    Deadlifts
    Squats (also aid in testosterone production)

    Secondary:
    Military presses/shoulder presses
    Power Cleans
    Power Jerks

    I haven't cheated at all... it's really been over a month since I've had anything containing bread or more than 1g of sugar. :P It's actually not as hard as it sounds.

    some people are more carb sensitive than others. i too find its best to cut carbs. its really not hard to cut them to 30g (and i wouldn't recommend lower than that really), after the first couple of days where you are getting over your carb-addiction. its referred to as the carb flu. it sucks but that is one of the quickest ways to lose weight.

    when glucose is in your system, your body is using that instead of fat, for fuel.. so its not burning the fat, its caught up trying to burn the glucose storage. some people have a slower metabolism and its harder to burn the glucose storage.

    another way to burn fat instead of glucose is to work out as soon as you wake every morning. this is the only time of day where you aren't going to use up your existing muscle for protein, and of course theres not yet any glucose in your system because you just woke -- you will just burn straight fat.

    alcohol is the worst thing on a diet because you will only burn 8% the fat you normally would while its in your system. unfortunately i like wine. XD
