If yous mob dont do it,I suggest you start cos if you give yourself about a month of consistent training,you will see results, trust me. Get the right info though before you do.

Yeh with creatine your not just ment to use it for wieght training, your ment to keep your cario up as well, not just wieghts. But you'd be suprised how quickly you lose it if you stop.
I think its 25% of your fitness in 3 days then 50% in 7 days.

Yeah i started about a year ago to with similar gains as you. I use protein but i stopped using creatine. I go to Renaissance Gym above Toys R Us in Rundle Mall.
I'm not the hugest dood but i have a pretty stocky build. Havent actually tried to bench as much as i can, but i have done 10 reps of 73kg (3 sets), so hopefully i'll give it a go and do 100kg

I've been doing weights for a little whle now, but am not atm because I play footy so I'm either sore and injured from that or can't fit weights AND footy training/games around my uni timetable.
Im 6'1", 71kg and my 1 rep max on bench is 90kg.

You start loosing fitness after 3 days of non training. So if you run every second day, you're fitness will improve, however if you have a 3 day break till your next run, you will feel the difference. So its good to get some physical activity going at least every second day.

Yeah Ive been hitting the gym on and off since I was 16 Im 21 now..
I was able to bench 105 KG, 260KG on legs, 40kg Flys..etc
Used to do 40 Push Ups on the hour everyday for about 5 hours a day and about 40 situps every 2 hours.

Well I'm about 6'2", I weigh 90-something kilo's, I have pretty broad shoulders and I look like a fairly big dood. I'm weak as piss though. I have no idea what I bench becoz I haven't been to a gym in years. Why? Coz I just can't find the motivation. I'd like to want to go though...
Help me you guys!
I'd like to start going again, but I just can't be fooked. For one I am a computer nerd, and any free time I have is spent surfing the web, posting to forums, or playing online shooters. Another thing is that I have been dating the same girl for over 5 years and it's to the point where we care enuff about each other not to care how fit we are. If u know what I mean. And finally, it's just so boring at the gym, all you do is pump away, even when I went with a mate as a kid(16-18) I remember it was hell boring.
So I ask what motivates you guys to go to the gym and how can I get motivated?

hehe yeah ive been hitting the weights too last 2 years. Ive put on about 15 kgs since den. Im 83 kg, i bench about that much too... My problem is im not consistent enough...keep stopping going stopping again for a few months. back at it now.
Just use protein, tried creatine, it works but i dont like it. L-carnitine i think is a waste of money Glutamine is an excellent supplement too try mix that with your protein drinks.

I reckon supplements are a crock in general *except glucosamine, which has actually been proven to help soft tissue injuries, and a few others. Those big tubs of sh*t with "X-TRA BIG GROWTH FORMULA" stamped on the label look sooooo dodgy to me.
I say either be a hardcore jim bunny and hit some roids or do what i do and just eat properly.
