    I have no problem with eating well, when I can. I've had nutritionists and taken an OVERLY healthy interest in it since I was a teen.

    But, I need to eat for vitamins. And sometimes, I cant. It's getting better. I can drink that old people/ anorexic girl juice "Ensure" in the mornings most times. But I'd like to be able to eat real food again to take my vitamins with.

    I used to always smoothie with my morning Vitties.

    Soon....soon...

    Don't eat anything canned brother...
    BPA is a mofo, and somehow it's still used in damn near anything canned.

    Well that's what I mean about not starting things I can't maintain.
    while I agree with you in theory.
    reality says I'll eat canned and frozen but hopefully not much.

    Now a more disciplined person can make those grand claims.
    not me.

    They eat healthier and were more fit, 95% of supplements are pointless for most people

    What they used to do was eat peanut butter by the gallon.

    If you are just a regular Joe and eating to stay healthy whole foods are perfect.
    if you are abusing the shit out of yourself multiple times a week might as well take advantage of modern day society.

    What people did in the past is not always because they had a choice.

    Today's athletes would crush the ones of yesterday due to modern training methods, diet and supplements.

    People used to live in caves I hear

    ubiquinol (coq10) is super depleted for smokers, omegas are essential, vitamin e is essential.
    it's like pot plants, you can grow without all the micros, but the end result is much better when they are healthy.
    Most people don't eat a healthy diet anyways...

    shit, and the fact that humans are evolving as we speak...
    Go look up the average size of a NFL defensive lineman in the 60s.
    Like 200 lbs is the avg.
    NOW?
    ya got 300+ lb lineman that can run a sub 4.5 40yd
    Yea... so it'd be like having gale sayers from the old days.. add a hundred lbs... and he is the same speed..
    Yea...
    Shit just LOOK at usain bolt... that dude...

    Let's face it. Most elite level athletes are cheating anyway so I don't want to give too much credit to fish oil.
    That is unfair to the uninitiated guy who is busting his ass off and looking nothing like the dude in the magazine.
    Blood doping and anabolics that's what you need.
    I recommend it.
    just not until your diet is on point and you have a great workout routine and have already gotten past the newbie gains. Then dial it I. And hop on the juice. But please don't think you can just order some testosterone it don't work like that.
    It's a bummer

    I agree with you on that, but most supplements geared towards working out are worthless. Turmeric, boswellia and aloe Vera are great for inflamation which is a problem we are all having

    I usually rest for full recovery when doing 5x5 in order to lift heavy for every set, usually 2-3m sometimes more if I'm going for a 5 rep pr. Sometimes less if I'm in de -load , warming up, or ramping sets, or stalling. When ramping or stalling I wait until the heaviest sets to do full recovery.

    Theres a lot of different versions of that program.

    I fuck with DHEA a little. It's worth mentioning that DHEA needs to be cycled as supping too much can lead to shut down of the adrenal glands . Mercola recommends 3 weeks on /3 weeks off. DHEA is also banned in all pro sports.

    DHEA absorption is best when used as a topical cream through the skin, as stomach acid and the liver break most of it down when taken orally.

    Not recommended either for younger athletes or if your bodies own dhea levels are good, as too much DHEA can cause bad diverse side effects.

    Another good supplement wether somebody lifts or not, is vitamin D, maybe the most important . Easy to remedy by daily sun exposure
