Re: Muscle Builder or Weight Gainer protein powder?

Stick with the gym, it takes time. Eat, train, eat, then eat some more and then eat some more. Make sure to get plenty of rest and adequate sleep as well, very important.

Re: Before Photo only w/ question

Don't maintain such a large calorie deficit. Your body will go into "starvation" mode and start storing the few calories that you have as fat for energy. Increase your caloric intake to at least 2000-2100 per day but 2400-2500 would be better.

You can develop your physique without adding mass, but the only way to get bigger muscles is by adding mass.

wevie, I just wanted to add that working your legs won't necessarily make them bigger but in fact stronger. They will only get much bigger if you start eating considerably more. Also I find if you warmup your legs before a run they won't be sore during the run, even if they were really sore to begin...

What's your diet like? It sounds to me like you need to eat more. The best way to increase your body weight is to eat more, plain and simple. Just keep it healthy.

I compete in MMA and grappling so I use my gains in the gym every time I step into the cage/ring or onto the mat. For example just last week I submitted a guy with a Kimura from in his half guard, which is hard to do. But I was so much stronger then him and was able to pin him to the ground and stab...

Not worth it in my opinion. You would be better off eating a pre-workout meal that is a source of slow to moderate digesting carbohydrates, protein and fast digesting carbohydrates. Sources or slow digesting carbs are brown rice, oatmeal and whole wheat pasta to name a few. Portion control and timin...

You don't need to run to be in shape, but it can't hurt. I'd say invest in a good quality sports bra for starters. Take a look at your diet and give this a read. http://shapefit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4681 Really good and helpful information in there. Also, have you considered weight training?

Well they do a really bad job at it. I watch some of these "championship" "fights" on TV... After two minutes, they both look exhausted and it turns into a hug fest. Awful shape. It makes me want to be a fighter when I get farther along in my training. A lot of factors come into...
