Leg day and Cycling…

I’ve gotten into cycling and triathlons in a big way the past couple years. While doing this, I stopped weight training in the spring/summer and concentrated on those sports. It’s been working really well for me, but I’ve kind of felt like I reached a plateau on my bike this summer, so I figured I should try to work on my strength as a way to break through.

so i’ve been incorporating weight training into my routine for the past month or so. I lift legs on Monday and upper body on Wednesday.

I need a meal plan that someone who rarely cooks can follow

So I live a fast-paced life and I never picked up the art of cooking. I wish I could say I am willing to learn, but I’m not. I make enough income to where I can eat out every day if I need to, and I do end up eating out most days (for lunch anyway).

My wife is an ok cook, but not that great. She tries to come up with something healthy but she also works, AND we have a 1 yr old kid, so there isn’t enough time to plan fancy meals. Important thing is that I can at least eat dinners at home.

Besides fast gains-any way to tell for sure if an 18 yr old is using roids?

Serious question- I wont post pics, but I suspect my son has been taking roids.

Any tell-tale signs to look for?

your best bet would be to post pics. but otherwise- giant traps, possible back acne, smaller balls…

that’s about it really. the whole "roid rage" thing is horribly overrated

Acne on the shoulders and back is a pretty big giveaway. Face bloat.

Fast growth of the upper back, almost looks over developed. Some peoples lats grow like crazy.

Some guy was using the cable pull down machine to work out his Lat dorsi

He held the bar next to his head, head down, body sideways and pulling it down.

What is that called? How good of a workout is it?

going to need a mspaint drawing of the previously described exercise.

did the bar stay at his head?

sounds like a core movement

Sounds like a core movement, but since it’s sideways, sounds like holding a dumbbell in each hand and leaning to one side at a time to work those muscles out. I’ve done something similar, but not like he’s doing.
