JMR. The tricep pushdowns have been my biggest gain, however, bench press db have gone up 5pounds each dumbell and I am able to complete 15 reps. I was curious the other day during chest day so I decided to pick up the 65 pound dumbells and see if i could do a set. A month before swole I could barely get this weight up. Last week I got 4 reps with this weight, and this was on my 4th set.
As I posted before there are some exercises that I have not moved up in weight but have been able to complete more reps with ease.
decline bench press move up 10lbs each side
incline bench press moved up 10lbs each side
Hammer db curls went from 35 to 40lbs 15 reps each arm 4 sets.
standing bar curls went up 5lbs each side.
As for legs I use the bike at a high speed with alot of resistance. I have noticed that I have more stamia and could go alot longer if i wanted to. Unfortuantley I have to train my legs with very low weight due to an injury I sustained back in the day. IF I go over 4 miles on the tread I cant walk the next day. Once my legs start getting stonger from the bike and tread I will try to start liffting heavy with my legs.
Creatine and Protein should not be taken at the same time. HOWEVER, Creatine and Glutamine can be take together.
******Dr. Murray J. Cohen, M.D. and President of Metabolic Nutrition said that extensive research has shown that Creatine (monohydrate or phosphate) competes with protein absorption receptors. Athletes taking combination products of these two ingredients protein + creatine) are wasting their money because the Creatine is not getting into the body.
He strongly recommends that Creatine be taken, preferably before working out, and by itself, for maximum absorption.
****breaking this down......creatine before your work out....protein after......OR AN HOUR APART FROM THE OTHER!!!!

wow, thats really interesting, but im pretty sure my creatine is working.... but maybe not to the fulllest
i'll wait to hear from the heavyweights on this subject before I pass judgement though
My friend,,, Babs IS a heavy weight. don't think because she is a fem means anything because she is built like a brick shit house and knows her stuff. What I'm trying to say is, if babs suggests splitting the 2 then trust me....split the 2.
If you still need a second opinion, I step up and do so. I also believe what Babs said it a factual statement.
