GS and DM's Swole your Role- Second instalment

Alright folks, we're finally back for our second go at "Swole your Role". If you missed it the first time around, we basically answered questions that were asked by various users on the Vine and using our personal experience and intellect regarding body-building and nutrition, GS and I answered each question to the best of our abilities from our own perspectives.

So in short, this blog will merely be the Questions thread where you guys ask us for advice if needed and once we go over the questions, we form our conclusions and a respective "Answers" blog will be created in reply to your questions.

Note: As both GS and I are busy with school, work and what-not, the answer thread might not be created for a certain amount of time, but bear with us, we'll try our best!

Hey what are your guys opinions on running in the morning versus running at night?  

Moderator
Posted by Deranged Midget

@SC: There are both positives and negatives to doing either. If you run in the morning on an empty stomach, you'll burn more fat although you'll potentially have a poorer physical performance due to not being fuelled. At the same time, it basically comes down to availability and preference.

Does running help tone your body?

Your opinion on the no carb diet?

Posted by Deranged Midget

@nick_hero22: Tone your body in what sense? Lot's of exercises can do that. If you're trying to build muscle, then weight lifting can help you can get a toned or muscular look. Running or any type of cardio for that matter helps increase endurance. It obviously can help you burn calories and lose some fat, but it shouldn't take precedence over weight lifting or full body exercises for cutting down some weight.

I know it's against what is advised, but when lifting weights on smaller reps it is easier for me if I don't breath every single rep. Try to change that?

Do you have a 6 six pack (I had to ask a slutty question)?

Oh mate, breathing is the most essential thing to do while lifting weights. If you don't breath, you aren't transferring any oxygen to your muscles, which in turn doesn't allow them to grow.

Pills work better bro and just rock the makeup ;)

Depends on what you're trying to do. If you're trying to cut down fat really fast, then it's a decent, but dangerous thing to do. If you're trying to build muscle, then ignore it completely. Carbs are your biggest calorie and energy source and the only way to gain muscle is by eating more food. Protein has the least amount of calories out of everything you eat when regarding muscle growth.

Haha, for now yes, but I'm in my bulk season so it'll fade for the most part by the time I'm done.

So lessen the weight if I have to? Sometimes I just forget to breath.

Cheapest way? Dirty bulking. Eat anything you want.

When bulking, I do single body workouts everyday of the week, but when I'm cutting I usually stick to 2 body splits and cardio every other day.

@Xanni15: I would try to perfect your breathing before lifting any heavier. If you can't breathe properly, you can't lift heavier weight and your muscles won't grow.

@Deranged Midget:

Fair enough. Are there certain body types that no matter what you do (outside of injecting stuff. :\), you won't get bulky? Like say some people will always have longer muscles while others have more compact and bigger muscles?

I'm a slut not a chessegrater there's a difference!

Posted by Deranged Midget

@Xanni15: You're referring to what is called a specific body type. There's most commonly ectomorphs and endomorphs.

Ectomorphs are constantly skinny and thin and have an extremely hard time putting on weight as their body just burns more calories.

Endomorphs tend to have high body fat counts and easily gain weight albeit they have extreme trouble cutting down. (I fall in this category).

Mesomorphs are the lucky few who have best of both worlds. They can easily cut and gain weight and have the best body shape for athletics.

Are you trying to gain muscle? Eat a larger surplus of protein, fat and carbs. Protein has the least amount of calories so pack in the fat and carbs.

So if you were an ectomorph, how would you approach weight training? If I can I really don't want to "bulk up" but just stay fit. I got the cardio aspect down with other activities.

If you're an ectomorph, then you shouldn't have to worry about bulking up at all. If you're an endomorph, cut down on the calories and you won't pack on weight.

I personally avoid all sugar, but if you're an ectomorph, go for it. :)
