    Observation on my part, coupled with acquired knowledge. All averages, really. Yes, other potential factors should not be disregarded as irrelevant/non-existent, but, overall, things average out. If...

    It's healthier than adhering to an all-too-typical 'Western' diet and having the fat that comes from which (assuming we eat predominantly healthy food, as opposed to going for calories of any nature,...

    Thanks for the replies so far. I, personally, do have a strong desire to get muscular (as we all do, around here), but also to have a good time (conflicting? For sure.); as said, you only live once....

    Alcohol and my regime

    Were I to workout Mondays and Tuesdays, and drink Fridays and Saturdays (enough to get a little drunk on each occasion; perhaps two Beers (pints), two Ciders (pints) and two other drinks of similar...

    Quite right, Geoff. Mountains out of molehills. I said that I didn't exercise my legs, not that I only exercised my left bicep and right wrist muscle.

    I use free weights for my chest and biceps, now, although haven't done for long.

    To be fair: isn't bodybuilding about vanity for most of us?

    I meant more that you seemed to be 'hitting out' too much at those who choose not to work their legs.

    Oh: and I use machines for my back, which, admittedly, isn't perfect a case scenario.

    You take things way too seriously (guy two posts above). I do actually work my back, but have never been too bothered about legs, purely because I see it that people are less likely to notice leg...

    I just thought that, being as there's less muscle to build up, perhaps fewer calories would be required.........

    ........but I'm obviously missing something fundamental, in thinking such a thing.

    Thanks for your reply, and same here. Do you know how it affects your calorific requirements?
  12. Anyone concentrate only on the upper body?

    This may make me sound proportionately-challenged as well as ever so slightly strange, but are there any others who are more concerned with bulding up their arms/shoulders/chests, than they are their...

    I've not much to say of any use, but I can say that I'm in a similar boat. I'm 155 odd pounds at 6', and find eating, quite frankly, an ordeal, often. Before I started bodybuilding, I ate probably...
  14. A rather strange, perhaps ******ed, question

    This may sound an odd question: but is it usual to not be able to flex your biceps for a good few days after working out? It's just that mine seem to take the best part of a week to feel...

    At 6', I'm not short, but at 155 pounds, I'm perhaps skinny; or at least what some would class as such. I used to be a lot lighter, actually, being about 135 pounds at the same height as I am now....

    Alcohol and bodybuilding

    As aware as I am, as regards the effects alcohol can have on muscle gain, I find it hard to entertain the idea of cutting alcohol out of my life. In the UK, it is pretty much common practice for...

    Five meals a day?

    How important is it to spread your daily calorie intake over 5 meals? I know it's desirable, but is it of great importance? Would my progress be inhibited, were I to spread out the same number of...

    Protein shakes

    Is it a good idea to have one before bed, and as soon as you get up? Also, can protein shakes be bad for you? Is there a sensible limit as to the number of protein shakes one should have in a day?
