    Are you taking anything, if so what? I prefer HIIT type workouts, namely the Gracie workout. I take protein, fish oil, and that's about it.
    For cardio I try to do 7, 3 minute rounds on the heavy bag every few days, and the speed bag every day if I can.

    I use to workout, but then I realized if I need to push anything off my chest that's over 200 lbs, I drank way too much the night before.

    I drink two scoops of isopure protein as soon as my feet hit the ground in the mornings,a pre-workout before heading to the gym after work,and another two scoops of isopure after the gym. And then if I have time run a couple miles before bed as far as cardio goes,I usually get about 3-4 runs in a week. I eat a lot of deli-sliced turkey and have a cliff protein bar for lunch,so lots of protein in my diet too. I want to take some kind of martial arts classes,like aikimbo (sp) or krav maga for the benefits that would carry over into real world self defense but there's not any of those gyms near me,just kick-boxing. And I'm not completely sure I could find the time for those type classes. Now I'm wishing I would have wrestled in high-school instead of football like my dad tried to get me to do.

    My best arm workout I like is a crossfit type workout,high-rep and high intensity workout like your talking about I believe,arms feel like jelly after and you get a huge pump. It's called the gauntlet arm workout by musclepharm. If you google it the Facebook link is the one that I got it from.

    Dude I was just thinking bout if ppl on here lifted yesterday when I was at the gym! Im hitting legs today. As far as a preworkout goes I take 400 mg of caffine and some beta alanine. It works great. I stopped taking jack3d and others like it because of the crash and also because it can give you a false positive for amphetamines on a drug test. Ppl will say its not true but it is because its the 1-3dimethy it contains. They took anything with it in it off the shelves at the gnc here on base. If ur in the military and they don't sell it on base u shouldn't be taking it so I don't take it.

    I don't like being in an actual gym so I work out home wearing boxers (it's all about comfort). I have 2 sets of dumbbells and a bench, I do 45 mins of my own workouts every 2 days. I only take protein supplements, one scoop before working out, one scoop after working out, no morning shake, no pills, only 100% protein. It's funny as I was typing this UPS delivered (one day early) my ON Gold Standard 100% Whey Natural Chocolate. For 3 years I used GNC 100% Whey Protein Chocolate, and for the last 3 weeks I was using Muscle Milk Protein Powder. I recently started a thread about lead exposure at the range which got me to research if there were any heavy metals in whey protein and to my surprise, the Muscle Milk ranked #1 in heavy metal content. Optimum Nutrition had the lowest (negligible) amounts so I decided to go with their Natural Chocolate to get rid of artificial sweeteners as well as the heavy metals. You gotta be really careful with what you put into your body, the nutrition facts labels don't tell you how much arsenic, lead, cadmium etc. there is in the powder. Combined with shooting every week at a poorly ventilated range, I really got keep my heavy metal intake as low as possible. Optimum Nutrition has their own plant (apparently) so they have much better control over quality. I'm about to taste for the first time Optimum Nutrition and I'm getting ready for the worse since it's their Natural powder and usually natural anything with that kinda stuff tastes really bad :) It's sad because Muscle Milk got the taste right and their nutrition facts are AWESOME, aside from using artificial sweeteners and containing heavy metals. Also one thing I hate about all the other protein supplements I've had is that day-long sweet taste in my mouth, I just realized that was probably caused by the artificial sweeteners so hopefully this new powder will get rid of that. This is actually amazing timing because I was about to work out until I got slowed down by reading this thread and then UPS dropped off my package :)

    EDIT: just tried it in 8oz of water and to my surprise, I like it better than anything I've ever tried. Not sweet, I could probably even blend it in 6oz of water instead but it almost has a dark chocolate flavor which I prefer over milk chocolate :)
