i agree diet is very important, people think if you work out than you can eat worse and it will be ok, but the truth is you need to be eating better to be able to sustain the workouts

but you can eat more than just salads and veggies

getting enough protein is key, good foods are turkey, chicken, tuna, eqq whites, cottage cheese....anything with high protein and low fat is great

if you do 40 mins of cardio 3 days a week, and then lift weights the other 3 days a week then that is good, but you should do at least 10 mins of cardio before lifting just for a nice warm up

Please don't be angry, I came in here thinking "The Guys" part meant U2, but before I left, I saw that a couple of you just quit smoking, and I wanted to pass this on for what it's worth. I quit last November, and never increased my caloric intake at all, and I have the lumps on my head to prove it, and about three months later, I gained 15 lbs. and was ready to put my fist through a wall, when my pulmonologist said that people gain an average of 15-20 lbs. even if they are as good as gold when they quit, because it is a build up of toxins that hang around for God knows how long until they're ready to flush themselves -- depends on the person. I wanted you to know, because you all seem so serious about the workouts and the diet, and if this happens to you while you're working so hard, you might get discouraged...I'll go back where I belong now. And good luck!

I keep routine fairly simple.....

* I drink whey protein powder 2 or 3 times a day...(this fills you up to) and it also helps burn fat, build muscle, gives energy... I drink it on an empty stomach to make sure its most effective.
* I take Vitamin C tablets daily that help restore and build muscle tissue.
* Then I do an hour in the weight room, rotating muscle groups daily.
* I then run a mile or 2.

Thats what I do Monday through Friday. I used to do it for basketball but now I justdo it for myself.

This is a great thread, I think men should really think about their health at an early age. I'm 39 and I'm in pretty good shape. I think I look better than I ever had, but my energy level just ain't what it was 5 years ago. My diet is mediocre at best (as I sip on a Corona), but I try to eat 3 good meals a day with minimum amount of snacking.

I also lift 4 or 5 times a week, and have been (finally) mixing in a real cardio workout. I also cut back on sodas and went to a lot of water instead...beers are water right?

Hey Mr. BAW great job, it feels good when you start seeing the fruits of your labor isn't it?

Shaun that's the best post I've ever read from you. He's absolutely right I play 9 months of softball and three months of basketball and it does wonders.

daily commuting to the office via bike helps me a great deal. over the course of 5 days, i only get 50 kms out of it but supplement it with longer weekend rides (usually between saturday and sunday i'll do 150-200 km).

and i hit the gym every week day morning (each day focus on a specific: legs, arms, shoulder, abs, back) to work out and shower before going to the office.

if you want something carb heavy have it in the morning.

of course i have no kids and no great sleep demands (i can go to bed at 12 and wake up for 6 so as to accomplish everything and arrive at the office for 8) so this all might be a lot easier for someone in my situation.

I golf as often as I can, sometimes two to four times per month, but I've taken to leaving the cart to my partner and walking a majority of the round,,,,works!

I'm moving into the dorm at school in 2 weeks from today ( ) and with that comes a free membership to the gym across the street. I figure that an opportunity like this should not be passed up, but it seems that previously whenever I went to go to the gym I never really was sure what I should do for a weight routine/how much cardio to do, etc. So, my question to you guys is what I should be doing in the gym? I'm not looking to get into a bodybuilder's physique or anything, just bigger, with a modest amount of definition.

I'm 5'11" and weigh 120-125, and it shows, I'm insanely skinny. I play hockey, so I'm not out of shape, but I want to be able to build up some muscle.

Any suggestions on what I should be doing in terms of a routine? Keep in mind that I don't want to spend hours every day in the gym.
