In Topic: How to Strengthen My Back?

02 March 2013 - 07:43 AM

I recommend Elliots Hulse's youtube channel 'strengthcamp'. He competed in professional strongman events and is now a coach. There's tons of videos on his channel on posture, back pain, neck pain, flat feet... and whatever else there is, so you're going to have to sift through a lot of videos.

If you're like me, sitting for long times everyday, the back of your neck is propably tight, as well as your hip flexors. Stretching those and doing deadlifts helped me a lot.
I don't know what your problems are specifically, so I recommend you inform yourself on things that can cause bad posture and see which ones apply to you. What worked for me might not work for you at all, so use your own judgement. I too would not overlook your abs/core. If you end up with a hyperextended lower back because of a weak stomach, you just exchange one problem for another.

In Topic: water or gatorade?

All these supplementing, engineered drinks or food are a ripoff, I say. Drink water, eat healthy --> Profit.

In Topic: the GOMAD "diet"

27 March 2012 - 07:04 AM

I started trying to gain weight a few months ago, had only minimal success so far.
What I did was change my diet to eating a lot of FAT (45%+) cheese. I'm living in Europe and there's lots of this white creamy cheese (Feta cheese or similar) available here. Don't know if there's some special word for that kind of cheese in English.

I'm eating a lot more than my parents, doing martial arts training (and pb obviously) and I somehow managed to gain about 2-3 kg in the last 4 months. I think I'll start a workout routine to focus specifically on muscle weight gain. The way it is now I kinda hit a plateau, I'm not really gaining anything more like this.

Well the point of this post was to throw in fat cheese as an idea, if you're fed up with milk :P

edit: this stronglift site that op linked also has tips for gaining weight other than GOMAD. I personally think there's healthier ways to gain weight than GOMAD.
