    So I weigh roughly 175. My aim for protein should be roughly 122.5g of protein. The whey I use (Standard Gold) is about 24g per scoop. Therefore, if I'm supplementing, I shouldn't be consuming more than 98-99 g of protein from standard nutrition. Well, fortunately, I'm not beyond that limit usually.

    Is that .7 rule based on the goal of maintaining mass, building or losing?

    I try, as much as I can, to start with compound movements because I find them to be the most effective and the most fun. Sometimes the gym will be too busy to start that way but I'd say 90% of the time I do.

    If I don't do them first, I usually find myself tiring out much too quickly and not putting up the sets I know I can do if I'm fresh.

    Thanks for the advice. Gaywallet made a similar note. I honestly didn't know that and only started to do it on a recommendation from a friend. I did do a small amount of research and pretty much everything I read was conflicting. I'll try 7/week and see if I notice a difference.

    Thanks for the advice! I guess I was misled by the person who recommended it to me. I get that timing protein isn't necessary. I just do it because the routine helps me remember. I also understand protein supplements aren't technically necessary so I only started to see if I noticed any differences and I did. Figured it was likely because I wasn't consuming enough protein otherwise.

    Pretty cool. That's sort of how I got my start into going to the gym. Those small class/personal trainer gyms are a pretty great way to get into the mindset of exercising regularly. I've since moved on to going to the gym alone because I personally enjoyed it more. However, I still recommend to anyone that is reluctant about joining a gym to start off in classes.

    I don't really think that's unpopular per se. Also, understand that devs have to make money somehow.

    What a farce. Kind of exemplary of the power the Patriots have as an organization which I guess is interesting in its own way. But as a casual fan, the NFL has done a great job at sapping any interest I used to have with the sport and league. I'm not even mad that the Patriots got better yet again. I just simply don't care anymore.
