    Hmm, 1g of carbs not too sure about that - seems like a lot you should skip it.

    Question: why do the protein chugging guys at the gym I frequent never go near the cardio machines? It's like they're all allergic. Impressive bulldog necks, but wheezing after climbing up a flight of stairs. Madness.

    I'd have to get an orgasm from eating it to pay that.

    BTW, just thought I'd be smug for a moment about my recent fitness escapades. Started the year at 90kg; now I'm down to a much saner 79kg. Rarr.

    A long time, 7 years-ish. It's not terribly impressive. It's something that anyone training for that length of time should be able to do.

    Wouldn't say I'm scared of carbs

    I just think excess wheat and sugar (typical western diet) is the main reason for our obesity and health problems wouldn't you agree?
    With respect, I think you're missing a vital point. It's not carbs that are bad for you, it's the wrong type and too much of it. Not only do carbs provide energy but they help with proper organ function.

    I wasn't referring to sugar, or processed carbs in general. There are plenty of other more useful sources of carbohydrate available and of course eating too much of anything can cause obesity. My diet is quite high in carbohydrate but it tends to come from whole grains, fresh fruit, veg, stuff like brown pasta, couscous etc.

    I don't just use carbohydrates to fuel my cycling, I use for the above too.

    heh unless you are like me and didnt train legs at all when you are younger due to being stupid and now have incredibly spindly legs.

    I can only squat about 95kg, and i weigh 80. Random personal trainer says my form is good though. And i have a dodgy back and dodgy knees

    I weigh 54kg, can do 100kg on the Leg press machine for 8-10 reps. Thought that was impressive but then I realised you're not lifting your bodyweight + weight on that machine, it's like squatting but you're weightless.

    Sure enough when I try squatting with a barbell for 8-10 reps I can do only 40kg

    Unless I take carbs pre-workout then the weights start floating and I can hit 250kg front squats, 12 reps.

    @Trane

    Cool only been doing it 6 months would like to get to that in 7 years. I'm sure alot of is about technique as that seems to keep holding me back. What sort of routine you do? I've been doing starting strength for last 2 months and it's going well, you heard of it?

    Reminds me of rhyme from the father-in-law:

    "Roll up, roll up, see the elephant shit,
    when he shits, he shits a ton,
    watch out son, don't tickle his bum...

    Too late. dig him out, Bert."

    That's Rippetoe isn't it? I've heard of it, he's a very smart guy, there's a great video on YT somewhere, of him helping someone with their deadlift technique - helped me a lot. Definitely stick with it.

    I'm following Wendler's 5/3/1 for powerlifting right now. Basically the 'big lift' followed by associated assistance work.

    @Trane

    Yeah you start with empty bar, squat 3 times a week. rotate bench press and overhead press. Rotate barbell row and deadlft add 2.5 kg every session

    Workout a squat, bench, row
    Workout b squat, overhead, deadlift

    Yeah looked at 531 looks like a good routine, will stick to mine until I get my lifts up first though.

    Anyone got/used Powerblocks? I want some, but they're so fucking expensive. Granted it's cheaper than buying a pair of every dumbbell I'd want, but still.

    If I was starting again I'd go that way, I've already spent more than their cost on individual weights. =/

    The tip about consuming carbs first thing is the morning for body composition has recently been de-mystified, there never was a proper clinical study into the myth in the first place, consuming calories (including carbs) later in the day/evening over morning actually is an asset; especially if practicing intermittent fasting.

    Carbs post workout - G.I. is totally floored as we know and glycogen replenishes over the next day anyhow, so for the average gym rat, or the natural am. or pro. that ACTUALLY knows how to train properly carbs aren't even needed - however, I do think that carbs should be included around workouts/post workout for OPTIMAL body composition, not taking health into account.
    I've been an endurance cyclist for nearly 7 years and compete in events both in the UK and Europe (Marmotte in French Alps and Gran Fondo in Italy, plus I've spent time with www.sportstest.co.uk and been tested. I'd like to think I know a little about how carbohydrates are used.

    And you?

    I'm not willy waving it's a serious question.
    I am the preeminent carbohydrate and nutrition specialist at St John's Hopkins University. I have searched through rain-forests, mountains, deserts and the ocean in search of the secrets of the consumption and use of carbohydrates. I have climbed the highest mountains and swam the deepest oceans and have worked with all of the worlds leading athletes and bread makers to optimise their diets while allowing them an occasional slice of bread.

    And you?

    I'm not waving my floppy cyclists penis either.
