    Cutting Calories

    Last time I cut, I lost too much muscle for my liking, I think it was because having too low calories as I dropped the weight pretty quick. Had no proper carbs only eating meats and vegetables (although no potatoes etc), only a bowl of oats in the mornings. What sort of calorie target should I...

    Post workout carb

    Wow, it's been a while since I posted here... Anyway, I've run out of dextrose and been thinking about trying something else. My friend recommended having creamed rice in a can. Would that create the same insulin spike as the dextrose and is it as fast absorbing? Any thoughts?

    L-Glutamine Dosage and Times

    Hey guys I decided to buy some pure L-Glutamine (1kg for $55) and was wondering what sort of dosages to take and at what times. I was thinking 15g a day, 5 in morning, 5 afterworkout and 5 before bed. Everything else I find on the interwebs is pretty mixed.

    I'm about to order a 20kg WPC bag and Professional Whey | Australia’s Supplement Specialists for Whey Protein Powder & Sports Nutrition at Wholesale Prices look very attractive at $250+$12 shipping flat-rate. Has anyone ordered with them in the past? Any feedback? Cheers

    I am quite annoyed with how my traps look. They are big only towards the neck and go down diagonally from there, not the box type look. Maybe there might be something missing with my traps workout. Normally I do around 4 sets x 12-15 with 50kg dumbbells, whenever I do shoulders, normally once...

    Cottage Cheese or Protein Shake b4 bed?

    What should I take? 250g of cottage cheese before bed or a protein shake with milk? I managed to score a couple of tubs of 500g cottage cheese for $1.80 from wollies yesturday, expires on the 6th of August. Still plenty of time :P

    Supplement Price Hikes

    Hey guys, After 3 months of a break (being too busy to join a gym after my memebership expired), I've rejoined my local gym and have been going for around 3 weeks. My strength has come back to me and have regained most if not more than what I had lost (around 5kg). I wanted to buy some...

    Hey guys, I'm 18 and I've been lifting for about 2 years, until recently I've come off a 2 month break as I had exams and I moved to Aussie. I've recently started training again and am buying supplementary once again. My performance has decreased a bit and I lost 5KG over this 2 month period :(...
