    white flood is pretty good stuff, but it sounds to me like you dont need a preworkout supp

    Tell us what you do for your workout and explain your diet in more detail before you jump to the conclusion that you need a pre-workout supp

    Its called overtraining in my book. He wont do it for long, don't worry about it. His body will let him know when it's time to stop. I mean, oatmeal and grapes for a preworkout meal and wondering why you're killing yourself fast in the gym. What if something got after you after your workout? Thats the logic I use. The logic of nature. We're not supposed to render ourselves immobile. Obviously the body isn't made for such a workout. Nice way to overload the central nervous system as well.

    a preworkout sup? I think you should do some research on proper nutrition first. What do your other meals look like Yazzy?

    Ok the diet seems pretty decent but not the workout. First, why do you do Cardio before you lift? If your goal is to get bigger and gain mass the cardio is not helping. I cannot tell for certain based on your diet if you are cutting or bulking or what. SO tell us what your goals are.
    Also, I think your sets and reps are a little odd. Not sure why you would do 3x10 then do another set of 7 and then another of 4. It seems excessive to me and probably contributing to the fact that you can barely move after your workout. I would say you are doing TOO much

    And 10-15 seconds of rest time is WAY too little. Your rests should be 60-90 seconds so you can maximize your lifting

    I stand corrected, after more clarification of the preworkout meal. Thats ALOT different than what you first mentioned.

    I'm curious as to where you got this workout?

    Back and legs on the same day?

    What are your goals?














    Of course there's mention of a bench press in there.

    Info on pre and post workout nutrition:

    It's All In The Timing - Pre & Post Workout Nutrition
    by Will Brink


    Most people are aware that nutrient timing is as important as nutrient composition. In other words, it’s not just what you eat, but when you eat it that gives optimal results. As the man says, “Timing is everything.” Consuming the right foods at the right time can have positive effects on body composition: which means more muscle and less body fat.

    Health-conscious people are told to avoid simple carbohydrates, and for good reasons. It’s not true all the time and in every situation, however. Following a heavy workout, there is a metabolic “window” - so to speak - where the body preferentially shuttles glucose into the liver and muscles to replace lost glycogen via both insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent transport mechanisms. Translated, this means your body will shuttle carbs and protein into the tissues you want (muscle) instead of storing them as fat after a workout.

    To carry the analogy further, the metabolic window doesn’t stay open indefinitely, so you need to take advantage of the opportunity while it lasts.
