    I was looking at that one too... they are not NECESSARY by any means, but they're a good way of saving time if you're in a rush and need to take in some carbs and fat with protein... just obviously take them in moderation

        Tim Knows his shit my friends.

        He advocates an almost identical off season eating plan as I would.

        Keep in mind that Tim has been in the sport a long time and offers strong solid advise, beginners, pay attention.

          That was excellent advice. I agree with everything in the post for the most part.

              Hey guys! I just had a quick question for anybody that could help me. I'm a Diabetic and have been training for close to two years now. I've been looking for some good supplements that would work for me and am currently thinking about trying out Nutrex's Mass xplosion. Is this product even worth my time? also, has anybody tried Anabolic pump? if so, does it work like the ads says it does? thanks!

                i'm in the same boat being diabetic, but i've only been lifting for about a year. Only supps I've found very helpful are whey protein, and creatine as well as a fat burner for the morning workouts. Most other things seem to have too much sugar in them for me. Also, i'll sometimes cycle my diet to be low carb for a month or two and that seems to cut back on the fat gaining as i'm lifting for strength.
                Try not to let hurdles hold you down because they will always be there.

                  Yeah, So far I've only tried a couple fat burners and Whey protein. The only problem with fat burners for me is I have a low tolerance for caffeine. Otherwise, I was thinking of trying some creatine but I've heard good and bad things about it. Right now I'm holding about 10% bodyfat at 195 lbs. My goal is to get up to 205-210 with only about 8-9% bodyfat. But it's hard being natural and putting on good size without gaining too much excess weight. That's not a bad idea going low carb for a month or so. I usually just keep my diet clean, usually only eating about 100-120 carbs a day. If I start cutting my carbs for too long I lose strength which sucks. what kinda training split are you doing?

My first misconception that you cleared up was the weight gainer mix I just bought from GNC... guess Il be taking that back before I break the seal...lol I hope to become very active in the forum, hopefully learning everything I should as I know absolutely nothing about gaining weight or lifting in that matter. If anyone has any help/tips etc... please do not hesitate to contact me.

                            Do fiber carbs count?

                              Great post and Great community!

                              I am fairly noob and have questions:
                              1) What is a barbell press? I searched google and there are many variations of this. which one?
                              2)Barbell vs Dumbell any thoughts? Could these exercises be one or it's equivalent other?
