      Cardio can be related to many things. It is not machine-specific, anything that involves doing a process manually is cardio. The activities for you are much like cardio. Start by spending some time in the weight room first, make out a plan for yourself. Do weights followed by high-cardio of any of those activities, you will burn out fat quickly. Weights followed by an intensive cardio would be my routine, in your scenario. Not only you are gaining lean muscle and burning out fat tissue from your body but you are also shedding the extra amount of fat during the rest of the time when you are not at the gym.

      People, chime in with your additions.

      yes, ofcourse.. infact i dont do cardio exercises when im in gym, because cardio exercises can be done anywhere...you can run, jog, play whatever kind of sport u like... its all cardio my friend. Anything that increases ur heart rate for some time is cardio, to put it in simple words. But yes, you have to first try and shed that fat and then start thinking about gaining muscle mass... So go ahead, play squash,tennis,badminton,football, soccer.. and have patience, it'll take time..but you'll def. get rid of the fat if u keep doing what u're suppose to ...consistently.

      FrozenFire, how long did you take/cycle Nitrix for and did you observe the tight schedule on taking it on empty stomach? Was there a reason why you stopped taking it?

      hmm....well apart from having my wallet lighter...i didnt really experience any significant side effect of it..the only side effect i could recall is that i had some major headache during the days i took nitrix.. now, im not sure if it was nitrix that was causing it or just pure stress from college... so the only reason i stopped taking was becuz my parents made me stop taking it..and they start telling me all this fantasy stories about how this guy took this and this happened and blah blah.. but ya.. i took it just for an experience and stopped now...it was a good experience overall...im just on glutamine and whey these days.

      Yes, i cycled the supplement for 2 weeks on and a week off. Tried to observe the schedule by taking it empty stomach but had some cheating days too..

      Any new things going on in the bodybuilding world?

      In two weeks, I am starting a long Nitrix cycle, 402 tablets for near 2-1/2 months. The last one was 180 pills and I have hit some personal roadblocks that I need to plateau.

      In another news, I recently came across Promax protein bars - although it would be decent if the ratio was higher than 20 g - but the taste of it is good, actually not too bad. The only downside in this bar is ~5-6 g of saturated fat, which, for the amount of proteins in it, is relatively quite high.

      Any (high-protein) products to choose from, for meal replacements?

      i like bsn products alot. If you are looking for meal replacements then true mass works pretty good.

      Also, when working out there are some other supplements that are very important for health and well being. This includes vitamins, Fish oil ( very important) and Glucosamine ( joint health) products.

      I have a question. I've often heard that doing cardio and weightlifting together, or within a short span of time results in no muscle gain. So one should leave a 6-8 hour gap between cardio and lifting. Is this true?

      Also, can one pursue this if the goal is fat loss and not muscle gain? Ofcourse I'm talking about a total body workout involving lifting and cardio together, within a short span of time.

      If you do too much cardio for too long of a time then yes there will be muscle loss because your body will use the muscle for energy. Use HIIT two to three days a week and brisk walk at a slight incline for 30 to 45 minutes in the morning to burn fat.

      A little bit of cardio right after weight lifting can be good. This helps to get the blood flowing and transport all the growth hormone that is released during weight lifting.

      BSN products are one of the very best. BSN Nitrix, BSN CellMass, also as you mentioned, TrueMass is also looking good. With it's nutrition label, you might have to skip two meals, 16 g of fat, this is heavy stuff. Related to meal replacements, Manno's Advantage is also quite decent. Only 2 g of fat per 33 g of protein.

      What BSN products have you used, any experience with them?

      Best is to leave gap in-between for an entire 24 hours. As Iori stated, a short 15-/20-minute cardio works out in your favor because you will be burning the fat a lot more quickly. The only downside per person is ensure that you are also taking in a relatively good number of grams of protein in your body right after your workout. That is when your body taps into and sucks in all the sources of energy and if there are no proteins left in your body to take advantage of and convert that into energy, your body ends up tapping into your muscles for energy source, which is what you might look to avoid.

      If your goal is fat loss with no muscle gain, simply cardio can get you there. When you mentioned that doing both things together at the same time could result in no muscle gain, yes, it could actually reduce your muscle mass considerably. That is when you have to give your body all the energy it can get from proteins. Without it, your body suffers from high muscle-to-energy ratio and the strength in your muscles starts to get weaker.

      Supersets is also an important topic under bodybuilding. What is superset and how would you define it?

      One definition of it consists of getting the most out of your workouts in a relatively shorter time frame in the gym. It requires focus and the ability to do 2-3 sets of each of the two exercises with, in some circumstances, 1-minute gap within each.

      An example of it-

      A1: Standard pushups (X number of reps, 2-3 sets) - No rest
      A2: Body Squat (X number of reps, 2-3 sets) - Rest 1 minute

      B1: Stationary Lunges (X number of reps, 2-3 sets) - No rest
      B2: Weighted Pull ups (X number of reps, 2-3 sets) - Rest 1 minute

      C1: Burpees (X number of reps, 2-3 sets) - No rest
      C2: Plank position (X number of seconds, 2-3 sets) Rest at least 2.5 minutes before moving on.

      Supersets can also be done on alternate sections of the body, one superset for upper body and the next for the lower body. For most, it requires a tandem and smooth flow. To perform above, one will have to perform both A's in tandem, take 1 minute break, repeat it 2-3 times and move onto B's and C's. It is good to get your heart rate up without the use of machines and could also be used in conjunction to your weight-lifting days where you would want to get a little bit of cardio into your routine.

      ^^great piece of information. Also, if possible..enlighten us with circuit training. What is it and how can it be performed, if you know. Thanks.

      Also, according to you...how many different kinds of exercise should one perform for a specific muscle group?

      .
      I have used their creatine products and true mass. For me they worked pretty good. NO explode worked like crazy, helped me get over some hurdles. True mass helped me out during a loading phase last year while working on deadlifts and squats. Although i figured, i could use ON's casein, whey and a banana for the same or better results. Im not a big lifter.. i just have some goals in my head that i wanted to reach after getting surgery on my back. Supplements helped quite a bit. I had quite a stack going last year but now its mostly just animal paks joint packs, Multi vitamins and whey protein since i havent really been working out for a while now .... just a couple of days a week of weights and the rest is walking and a bit of cardio.

      From my side of things, circuit training is combining strength training and aerobics into one 'circuit'. The first advantages that sticks out for this type of training is it requires less time but more out of you than perhaps many of the usual exercises that require you to spend more time with the machine. If you partner up with someone, it keeps both of you on your toes, and is done specifically amongst a group of people. The outline of this program is it gives you the ability to get your heart rate up considerably quick, is done with a high number of repetitions with lower sets and helps you burn fat from your entire body. Although not necessarily designed for a power-lifter, this program is far from that. The entire circuit training has the ability to give you specific body workouts, from upper, lower or a total body. It requires persistence, and could also be designed for beginners which mandates that they stick to the program regularly so get themselves proficient. Also, perhaps the biggest advantage of this routine is it does not require you to be present at the gym, one can do it from home or anyplace else. If you dedicate one day out of the week on circuit training, you will notice the difference in your stamina and the maximum amount of time that you can have your heart rate be up and consistent.

      On the other hand, it could also be designed for power-lifters, with lower reps and higher weights, and that is when you can really combine the weight-lifting with the aerobics and forget all about the machines. It is fun to do, in an environment where there are groups of people with music and an instructor, you can get a sense of belonging.

      Regarding your question, any and all exercises could be done for specific muscle groups provided they get alternated between different days and not all of them are performed on the same day, or the very next day. You could possibly combine your exercises with resistance or circuit training which will give you positive results as well. I would also like to ask anyone who has any sort of experience to add to the discussion, about this topic or anything related to it.

      Excellent. I am glad you put this forward. Based on what you have shared, did you take the NO explode after your loading phase? Does the explode work in a similar way as their Nitrix product, or is it completely different?

      I had asked above if anyone had any experience in animal paks. How do you find this pak, any feedback based on how long have you been taking it and perhaps the advantages of it also? What I have come across for Animal Paks is it is largely sold under the label of "multi-vitamins", although it could be more or less than that. What do you think?

      During the loading phase i used a normal creatine product. Noxplode will help you to train harder and faster, so you can use that too. I usually use it only if i get to a point where i am not moving forward, or if i just feel like training really hard. I used it for about 4 weeks and then stopped. It works differently than nitrix i think. Nitrix is only an NO product right ? NOxplode is designed to be used before your workout so that it gives you that rush and boost of energy. Try it...it works good for some people. For some it does not work all that great.

      Animalpak makes different products which includes vitamins and joint health products. Their vitamin paks are supposed to be the best around for athletes. I use the joint health paks and they work pretty effectively.

      Ok.. so what you're saying is if one hit their plateue, they shud use noexplode products to break their plateue?..

      If noexplode is not the supplement for breaking plateue, what should be the technique/schedule/diet that should be followed to overcome plateue?

      hehe no thats not what i am saying, i am saying thats how i used it . You can use it anytime.

      If you do get to that point then that means its time to change things up. You have probably been working the same muscles the same way for a while and now your body is just not responding to the same old techniques.You can shock your body in to growing by using a different exercise or different reps or other different techniques. For example, if you have been following a normal routine of say 3 to 4 sets and 8-12 reps per set, the you can change throw in a set that goes maybe something like this:

      2 warm up sets
      1 working set of 8 reps + rest for 10 to 15 deep breaths + as many reps as possible + 10 to 15 deep breaths + as many reps as possible + hold last rep at the mid point where it is exerting maximum force the target muscle for 20 seconds and/or baby reps till failure.

      Once you are done with the set immediately go in to a deep stretch targeted at that muscle for one minute. Studies show that stretching alone can increase muscle strength. Keep in mind though that the set i described here is not for big mass moves like sqauts or dead lifts. This is for exercises like the smith machine bench press. Also do not do this for more the one exercise for one muscle group per day. This usually works best with total body workouts.

      Again this is the method i used. You can use any number of different ways, mostly its just mixing up new things in to your workout and/or resting for a while if you have been over training.

      Diet again should be high in protein with appropriate amount of carbs and good fats. Chow down some protein and a slow digesting source of carbs 30 to 45 minutes before your workout. And take in alot of fast digesting protein and carbs right after.

      I have started my Nitrix cycle and I have a question on combining Nitrix tablets with protein shakes. Is it okay to take these two together at the same time? Does the effects of Nitrix diminish if taken with a protein shake? If this is not the case, should there be a wait period of [X] number of hours after taking Nitrix to consume a protein shake (which, I assume, is a normal wait-time for an hour or so)?

      Please advice.

      Hmm i think you are supposed to take it on an empty stomach. I would think it would be ok to drink a shake after 20 minutes or so.

      Please advice.
      it is recommended to take it on empty stomach prior to workout and then u can take protein shake post-workout.
