Heres the thing,I look muscular with just push ups and Bike riding.My arm is 15.5 inches cold.I have naturally muscular legs that I got from yrs of HEAVY squats and they never really seemed to go away.My quads have always been big and I easily work up to the full weight on leg extension machines at gyms.
For some reason though I just dont do well with weights.I get injured all the time.I have bad joints that just cant take the weights.My feet are killing me as I type
Also for some reason when I do weights I get severe insomnia.
SEVERE!!!I feel thats its not my muscles that dont recover but my nervous system gets jolted way too easy.
I do get good results from weights in begining and then wham I start overtraining.I feel that pushups/pullups are enuff for me and my low recovery ability.
All that said though I have friends that only do pushup/pullups and look phenomenal.Anyone remember Marky Mark the rapper when he was doing calvin klein underwear ads....well thats the look they have.I like it and will be content but i must say that if my joints were good id hit the iron,no if ands or buts!!
About my diet.....6 meals a day
Meal 1--protein shake and a pear/apple/grapes etc
Meal 2--4oz ground turkey breast and 1/2 cup rice w/spaghetti sauce
Meal 3--same as 2
Meal postworkout---10oz pure grape juice and half protein shake
Meal 4--4oz ground turkey and a small sweet potato
Meal 5--protein drink and 10 flax caps
Meal 6--protein drink
I grind my own meats so they are super lean.If I feel weak i'll add a small sweet potato to the last two meals for one day.I also will binge one day a week.
Monday and after my binge on saturday and I look leaner again.You know its working when women you see everyday all of a sudden "notice" you
