    a v-sit is like a sit up except you lift your legs at the same time as you sit up, so your body kinda looks like a V. If you look like a J you're doing it wrong.

    now do that on the ball. i recommend a stability ball balance ring, or a nicely padded floor if you plan to do these.

    Lily: I eat a lot of rice, and I pretty much eat everything my mom cooks up - mainly Chinese dishes but not a lot of fat. A lot of meat, but a lot of carbs too. I eat a lot of veggies (usually stir-fried with a little oil). No protein shakes at all - couldn't afford them (I'm studying and living away from my parents so money is a bit tight).

    I started drinking fresh milk (full cream) 3 times a day 2 weeks ago, but found out that I could not take in that much milk; I had upset stomachs pretty much everyday. I found out I was a bit lactose intolerant (I heard most Asians are).

    Whey protein powder for shakes are pretty expensive here...I have heard green beans (in porridge form) contain lots of protein and can be an alternative to expensive protein shakes. Is this true? If not, do you know any alternatives, besides lots of meat and egg-whites?

    diesel_tke - About the inmates - they didn't take in any protein shakes in jail, did they? What's their diet like? I'm curious to how they did it without supplements.

    Sometimes it's not motivation that I lack; it's low energy levels before I start working out. I feel tremendously lazy and my eyes are tired - even though I had a good 10 hour sleep the last night. Although I had enough sleep, it wasn't normal. At times I slept at 3am, and woke up at 1 or 2 pm. I hate my sleep cycles. I am sure that this is the cause of my lack of energy during the day. I'm going to fix this over the next week and should see an improvement in my motivation and energy.

    I like taking diet coke to give me a boost - is this wrong? What about strong tea with brown sugar, will this do the trick?

    Yeah, the inmates don't get supplements. They did it the old fashion way. They make sure to eat everything the state gives them as far as meals. And those are the bare minimum...Trust me. On top of that they would go to the canteen(which is a little store where they can buy things like soap and snacks. Limited to certain things and amounts.)

    They eat as much tuna, peanut butter, and hamburgers as possible. Usually eating the tuna strait. Sometimes mixing it in with noodles. And that is it. Most try to eat one gram of protein per pound of body weight. That figure is a little debatable. But it is a good rule of thumb when trying to gain.

    The main thing is to take in more calories than you use up in a day. Do that with healthy food, and a little more protein than not. When you get to the weight that you want, level it off.

    I saw your diet up there. not bad but you need to eat more protein. Crucial!!

    So I was bench pressing 405lbs as my max and I got on the RRT(rapid response team) and had to make the PT standards. Well I was too big for the running, and pull ups. So I started a lot of cardio. I got down to about 230lbs when the PT standard changed and I had to start maxing out on pushups for the test... I figured I was money because I could bench so much...Wrong! I could only do like 40 push-ups. Then I noticed that I was soar the next day. So I figured I would change up my routine and see what happened.

    How much do you bench press now?

    Well, the last time I got on a bench was at a squad meet where they decided to have a competition on who could bench the most. I could only get 350lbs one time. But that was after doing, 225, 250, 275, 315, 335, 345, then finally 350lbs.

    That was about a year ago. haven't touched a bench since.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Wouldn't you normally warm up before going for a maximal lift anyway? But my real point was it looks like you've sacrificed maximum strength for cardio. Although not nearly as much as I would have guessed.

    Yeah, but it wasn't really a competition, just a bunch of guys screwing off. And at that point I had no idea what I could do so I was just laying down and pushing one time. Then everyone would go around the room and see who could do it and who couldn't. By then end my arms felt like jello.
