post #121 of 125

So I've only taken it about 3 diff times since I first posted about using it...I just don't like the headaches, its killer for me.

Went ahead and ordered the Body Fortress whey protein shots...they come in portable tubes, premixed, 26g of protein, no sugar...6 tubes/$10 box, bought 3 boxes, I plan on lifting about 3 times a week, so it should be a months supply. Also got some Amino Energy for the pre-workout, watermelon flavor, has the least amount of color dyes out of all the flavors. Should make me less jittery and less headaches, supposed to have less caffeine

I ride about four hours a day on road bikes. I think a little leg press is OK, Depending how your legs feel should be the determining factor. Also the strange thing about cycling is, you can touch the side of your leg and it should feel sore even though you have not ridden for a day. This is why every two weeks I take two full days off. To fully recover from everything.



Bikes do a total number on your legs!
Imagine then putting strength traing presses and squats into the duty your legs have for recovery. Your legs should get super big just from the bike. Look at any truly advanced biker and see their legs.


Interesting though walking works a more complete workout for the legs than a bike. On a bike the stress is on only a few areas. At one point in my life I could do 900 Ibs on the leg press due to cycle legs. So ya, I would think any person taking the time to put in the miles on a bike is going to have spectacular legs.


I'm now doing the gym every other day. What they used to say about weight gains being small due to too much cardio is simply not true. At my age, just due to eating a ton, and getting serious about the gym, I'm now getting bigger than I have ever been, combined with being on a bike four hours a day.

Still I almost don' work my legs much at the gym, they are too sore.mad.gif

If you predominantly go heavy with leg presses, you're only going to slim down those big muscles if you start cycling. Calf muscles will become stronger though.

Yeah i second this... long term bicyclists have skinny legs compared to a proper bodybuilder... yet they have almost as much strength in the legs, or more, really depends on the person.
