If you keep eating a defecit, you will keep losing weight. You can help yourself out of a plateau faster by changing up what you eat or adding some more cardio, but you will get out anyway as long as you keep the defecit.
ahahha nah its just fat i wanna burn off, let my abs pop..and yes I know some of it is about having genes.

To me it sounds like you're losing weight for vanity, rather than health. I hope that isn't the case.

Been a while since I've posted on this thread.

Recently got on Muscle Milk and Creatine(optimum nutrition brand).

I'm starting to see more definition in my body.

I'm doing an ab class tonight for the first time ever. Don't really know what to expect, except soreness lol.

it is a bit. I don't really want to drop weight, its more of dropping body fat %. And since i can't find out what my % is, eye ball test and a scale works I guess. I don't want to do that electrode test because your results can be off from 40-60%.

Supplements are exactly what they say, supplements. They supplement your diet and workout, they don't replace.

I know it sounds stupid for me to post but it's just a reminder that you still have to watch what you eat and work hard in the gym even when you are on supplements.

Yeah, my only supplement is whey. I am thinking about using Universal SuperCuts, but i'm put that off untill like May/June if i really need it. I'm take a break from cutting in 2-3 weeks anyways.

Ok so I just recently got back into working out now that school has been winding down for me. I'm 5 foot 11 and around 150 pounds and I'm looking to bulk up of course. I have school all day on tuesday thursday along with a radio show so I only have time to work out on the gym on Monday, Wednesday and Friday along with the weekend.

I was thinking of doing a routine of:

Monday - All Upper Body
Tuesday - Cardio
Wednesday - All Lower Body
Thursday - Cardio
Friday - All Upper Body
Weekend - Rest and some cardio

And then flip it as the next week comes up.

I do 3 sets of decreasing reps (usually 10 , 8 , 6) but that's just from what I used to do in high school. I read about 5X5 but I guess I don't fully understand.

I get plenty of complex carbs, protein and calories, I just need a solid workout routine to help myself.

Any input would be awesome. Thanks.

^I wouldn't do days of " all upper body". I'd isolate one day to chest and bi or tris and one day to shoulders and bi or tris.

Does anyone else prefer lifting by themselves then lifting w/ a partner??? I see many people lifting w/ other people but when ever I lift I seem to get off track very easily and dont get my whole workout in.

Having someone to lift with for chest day is pretty nice to have a spotter. Other than that, I could care less.

Cliff bar has a lot of sugar in it. Like most bars it sucks, but sometimes its better than nothings.

Been on this P90X for awhile now, I stop lifting for gains now but to tone. I've been doing it with a few friends and I much prefer to have a work out partner to push you, I find myself stopping sooner if I was by myself.

Definitely prefer to work out alone, the meditation-ish part of working out is half of why I like working out so much.

And booo tests, have to work in the afternoon twice this week. So many people >_<.

Another solo worker. Lets me concentrate and more importantly focus on what's important. I'm very competitive so having someone there just makes me want to put up higher weight than I should at the expense of form, kind of defeats the purpose.

To me it sounds like you're losing weight for vanity, rather than health. I hope that isn't the case.
Appearance is every bit as good a motivator as health and really, they are related anyway. The better you look, the better you feel about how you look, the more confident you are in your appearance, these are all good things and good reasons to work out. By being in that shape you are also inherently healthier. I'm a big fan of whatever the motivation for being healthier is not important as long as it is there in some form.

I personally am motivated probably even between three things, Sport, Appearance and Health. One day in the not too distant future the sport one will not be there anymore, just puts more emphasis on the other two but as long as it is enough to get off my ass and do it, it matters not why I do it.

Also... Currently have a knee injury, badly twisted about 5 weeks ago. Just wondering if anyone has ever had similar and how they treated it, how long it took and the like. Gave it rest for 5 weeks but I have nationals starting in 2 weeks and unfortunately have to get back into training and playing RB means there really isn't any way to go easy either. Anyone know of good management/prevention/healing mechanisms?

I workout with a partner.....not a random guy tho, it's always one of my best friends that I actually trust spotting me and won't limit me in the gym by talking too much or just being a jerk off.

I like lifting with someone else but only sometimes. Some days I just want to be alone in the gym. I get more done when I'm alone because I don't have to worry about anyone else getting in between sets and talking is always a distraction. Lifting with someone else is also a motivator.

I normally prefer to lift alone but having a good partner is not something I'm opposed to. I just don't have anyone to lift on the same schedule as I have currently. Lifting is sort of 'ME' time right now as I am crazy busy with everything else so its nice to kinda go solo for awhile. I actually feel as though I push myself more when I'm alone which is kind of strange I suppose. All that hootin and hollerin from people trying to encourage me usually doesn't work too well for some reason.

Have you seen a physiotherapist? They possibly are the best around to help rehab knee injuries.

Healing...ugh. Ligaments tend to heal on their own, but it takes a while. Rates of healing will differ between ligagments. I took 1 month off for a MCL grade 1 sprain, and reinjured it 3 weeks ago, along with my LCL.

As for prevention, wrapping/taping up the knee as well as doing stretches to warm up the stabilizer muscles will help to an extent. A knee brace similar to those people with torn ACLs use would be useful, but it will limit lateral mobility.
