Firstly just to say hello as i'm new
Wern't sure where to put this as it covers a few things, so thought i'd just make one thread here.
I'v read up a bit on things but just wanted some decent advice from you lot. It seems everyones trying to achieve slightly different things so not everything you read is relevant to you.
I'v just started working out at my uni gym but am going to buy some equipment for home, i'll come onto that in a minute.
I'm 6ft and about 13st 6 / 82kg. I wanna tone / bulk up, mainly upper body, arms, pecs and abs. Dont wanna look like a body builder tho lol, just nicely toned
What i'm like at the moment, jst to give you an idea..
I eat fairly healthily but know i'm gunna need more protein, its just theres so many different protein suplements etc and they all claim to be the best lol. I know about eating plenty of white meat, fish and steak but what protein or meal replacement would you use. I'v been told maximuscle? Also is it good to keep eating at least 5 portions of fruit / veg a day?
Also re: creatine and glutamine
Some pople have said take both, others have said just glutamine as creatine just draws water to the muscles. Someone else said creatine will mean you can do a few extra reps etc. Are there any proten suplemts / meal replacement shakes that include a good balance of both ?
also what is the optimum amount of protein per day ? 200g ? i think theres a calculation you can do ?
Also I'm planning on getting some equipment for home. I'm not realy interested in weight lifting type stuff, because i dont wana get massive, just toned / defined.
Probably gunna get this: http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/3352425/Trail/C%24cip%3D50353.Sports%2Band%2Bleisure%3EC%24cip%3D50406.Home%2Bgym%2Bequipment%3EC%24cip%3D50415.Multi%2Bgyms.htm
seems to have everything i need ?
Any help much apreciated
