    What would you recommend to do in gym for football related stuff (eg explosivenss, speed, power, jumping etc) ? Obviously want to work all the muscles but don't want to become slow etc for football. Won't start again yet have exams soon.

    Still doing cardio every other day if not daily.

    On about FOOTball football btw
    As a footy player myself, i have noticed a HUGE improvement in my strength in football by training legs, back and my overall core really hard.

    What is the best way to work out without access to a gym or weights? Is it possible to combine long-distance running and body-weight exercises and end up looking shredded or no?
    Yeah just look up calisthenics loads of routines on YouTube and the people are shredded

    How can you not have access to weights? Why not just buy some off the internet?

    Protein peanut butter, is so sickly on wholemeal bread. May have to try it with celery instead

    Don't want to become slow?
    You're not going to turn into a chest overnight.

    Anabolic window and all that. Aim for about 1g of protein per lb of body weight

    You want to be having lots of protein. Could go for 1g for every 2lb

    I really don't get what you mean, I'm only trying out protein supplements for a month, because I won't have much time to prepare meals. I'm have zero knowledge when it comes to intake

    Normally you should aim for 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight you want to be.

    I.e 150 lbs means aim for roughly 160g of protein per day

    Then don't...It's easy if you put your mind to it. 3 eggs is 20g roughly. 150g chicken breast is roughly 45g

    Then eat more protein dense food to fill up your protein needs...

    I know two friends of mine who are on gear. Stupid if you ask me but it's entirely up to them at the end of the day. They're bright enough to have done their research but it isn't for me
  • People massively over estimate the amount of protein needed to build muscle. 60% carb 25% protein 15% fat Is pretty much perfect for most people.

    depends on your body type....
    people underestimate fats. they work with proteins, carbs and increase them to extremely high volumes and many times wonder why it is still not helping and they are not growing.
    and then you figure out they eat max 20-30g of healthy fats every day...

    It doesn't. Really it depends on your lifestyle/sport you play (if you do) rather than that of body type.

    Did you just say that your nutrition and macro needs doesn't depend on your body type? Nice bro science man.

    There is not one sport in the world where a high fat diet benefits the trainee more than a high carb diet.

    I think you're being far too narrow minded with regards to the variety of sports.
    Weightlifting and any weight class based (Strength based also) sport will generally have periods of higher fat to stimulate fat loss (Oxidation). Not every sport requires vast carb loading and high carbohydrate diets either. Most people vastly over emphasise the amount of carbs they consume

    So you have no examples?

    Higher fat diets are not needed to stimulate fat loss. The only requirement to loose body fat is a calorie deficit. Berto Nunez would be choking on his oatmeal.

    I never said high carb diets were a requirement, I said they were optimal.

    Please respond when you have some real world examples.
