In regards to the not eating after 7 thing...

Its not necessarily the time. It supposed to be not to eat within 2 hours of bed time.

The reason behind this is due to the release of growth hormone while we sleep. Growth hormone is the number one hormone when it comes to fat loss, and plays a major part in muscle growth. However growth hormone cannot be produced when insulin is present in our bodies. Eating within 2 hours of bed time blunts the release of growth hormone during sleep, significantly impacting fat loss and muscle growth.

There have also been numerous studies that have shown that after a certain number of hours of fasting during sleep, the bodies metabolism jacks way up and begins to burn body fat around the 5th or 6th hour of sleep. So another reason to not eat within 2 hours of bed time.

I would suggest reading some of Charles Poloquins' work. He is one of the worlds leading strength coaches, and an absolute genius. He advocates not eating within 2 hours of bed in order to maximize growth hormone release.

Dave : My journey began 3 years ago, at 100kg (200 lbs I think the conversion is 1:2), heavy smoker, drinker , zero exercise.
Decided one day I want to be fit enough to join the army and excel at it at that, and I began. I stubbornly saught no help or advice, just did self research and bought a pair of running shoes and got to it.
12 months, and an extended episode of shin splints and discovery of low feet arches later, I emerged : 64kg ( 128 pounds if im not mistaken), non smoker and light drinker.

Since then I joined a gym to encorporate to my cardio and build strength, and now am up to 74kg (148lbs I think) and ten fold stronger.

20M beep test / shuttle run : 3.3 started ( Horrid ) , ended at my best time 11.1 .

For this , I like you, have extreme respect for anyone with the DISCIPLINE and mental FORTITUDE to control themselves and achieve through blood sweat and tears, rather then just fester in Nurgles image haha .. Even though I like plague marines

For this I want to say; Keep up the fantastic work, remember every morning when you wake up how far you've come and achieved, and stand taller with the respect you have earned in this life.

As my favourite saying goes;
" And the weak shall inherit...Nothing. "

Fantastic work man, one day i'll show you my core routine.

Have you ever seen a person that's really tiny bench ridiculous weight?

I've heard of conversations and seen a guy that was around 5' 4" tall maybe shorter and he was benching 300 pounds. While guys that were 6' 2" or something were only at 180ish or 200. They looked I suppose equally strong as well.

Good vlog, Dave. Your philosophy of your mind controlling your body is right on to my mind. Four years ago, I got tired of being a fat git and decided to change my eating habits and begin exercising. Started with the exercise I hate the most; running. Moved to weight training (free weights) and swimming when possible. I had help, of course, in the form of a friend of mine who is a physical therapist. She really helped me get it in gear. That's she's pretty didn't hurt at all. (She's now my girl-friend.

Anyway, at the end of 10 months, I weighed 90 pounds less (155) and could bench 225 and military 170 with a 120 pound curl. I feel SO much better. Valerie says I probably transformed 20 pounds of fat into muscle. So it's more like 110 pounds.
The very best of luck to you, Dave and to Matt. I hope you guys exceed your goals and your expectations. Get fit and stay healthy.
Cheers, B

I don't do abs first, I do 15 minutes 3 times a week of abs and I only do them after my heart rate is up so I maximize the benefit. same with all weight exercises.

another thing you can add to your workout when doing leg lifts is to have a partner stand at your feet and have them throw your feet down to the ground or to either side. you then use your abs to keep your feet from touching the floor. i have found this to be a very intense ab work out.

ps they don't have to throw your feet very hard for you to start feeling the burn

@spartanfit: actually the boost you get minimal so it's safe to say it's not there. We should all do it, at least to have enough protein around so we can all grown big and strong; and not eating after 7pm is the best way not to grow muscle...

Anyway, congratulations Dave, it's awesome to see someone trying hard and achieving something they want. We all hope you get Chaotically Jacked

And here I am one of those that consider abs to be one of the most fun things to work on

Now, there are tons of different ways to train, but I'll give you my 2 cents: First of all, don't train the same muscle every day. A muscle needs 48 hours of rest to maximize growth. What I'd recommend, is that you spend one day for each group of muscle (Push, pull, core, and legs). As for abs, you got 2 solid exercises right there, (Put make sure to touch your knees with your elbows! ). The leg lifts you can try to just raise your legs up 45 degrees instead, also, add a 2 second way at the peak before dropping down, puts more focus on the lower abs. I would also recommend Iron Crosses and Crunch-Ups.

I'm a major fan of bodyweight exercises, I basically don't use any weights at all except for when I'm training intervals based on strength building. Eating 5 times a day is great, protein is great, you need 1.5g protein per lb of bodyweight ideally per day IIRC.

If you can press your own weight, you're strong. If you can do a one-legged squat, your legs are really strong. (Can you do those? )

Lastly, I would like to shamelessly recommend the book "You are your own gym" by Mark Lauren, if you have an interest in bodyweight exercises and some good training info.

Regards,
Kodain D. Kiwrath

Great job on the progress Dave!

I really have to second what Striker6 is saying. Bodybuilding.com is an excellent resource for not only building a workout/diet plan, but also tracking your progress through body space.

Awesome techniques to build abs, and I am losing to my mind and have not been exercising
SeemonkeyDomonkey (Over a year ago): - delete
Dave doing abs first is not good if your are doing some heavier weight sets after as they support your core, if they are tired when you do those exercises you increase the chances of injury. That's why they are usually incorporated at the end of work out routines.

@spartanfit: nothing really wrong with eating after 7 if your looking to gain muscle. Your muscles do most of their repair and growth while you sleep and if your have no fuel on board you limit it's ability to do so. Slow burning carbs and protein is ideal.

Awesome job Dave, keep it up.

Your 1RM (one rep max) mathematically calculated is about 230lb. Realistically though it would probably be around 205, maybe 215. That's still really good though, keep at it.

Don't be so concerned with your weight. You really should go by the mirror, as weight can change drastically based on many factors like time of day, day of the week, water, food etc. Body fat percentages and the mirror are the way to go. I can fluctuate by about 5lbs on a day to day basis.

You should get a body space on bodybuilding.com. You can keep track of everything on there, plus we can all check in on your progress. You can add my bodyspace too: Striker6

Keep doing what your doing. The 5 meals a day are great, just make sure to always have a protein source with each meal. And don't worry about the protein powder (while it is easier), real food is more thermogenic and helps you stay fuller for longer.

BTW I've been bodybuilding for 4 years now, so hit me up if you ever have any questions.

@balangaz: actually eating 5 times a day does boost your metabolism. You should really eat 6 times a day and NEVER eat after 7pm.

balangaz (Over a year ago): - delete
Eating 5 times a day does not increase the metabolism, it lower the total amount of food you end up consuming because you are never truly hungry.

Mind if I ask you what's your other maximum scores on other exercises?
