Embarking in marathon training sessions may seem manly and Spartan-like but you are having weight training sessions that consistently high the 1½ to 2 hour mark are hurting more than your helping. If you are having trouble making it through these long training sessions, the problem might be hormonal. Keep your weight training workouts to around 60 minutes to optimize your anabolic hormones. If sluggish muscles are keeping you from peaking at the end of your workouts put one of these tips into action to breakthrough your sticking point for maximum muscle growth.

If you are working on building up your muscles, you probably already know that working out, on its own, isn't enough. Diet is also important. Body builders try to keep their body fat lower than what is considered normal—between 3 and 8% for men and around 10% for women—so that their muscles show through and are not hidden by a layer of fat. Eating like a body builder will help you build muscle and lose excess weight if you combine this diet with the right exercise regimen. The basic idea is to eat a diet high in protein and fiber , and low in carbohydrates and fat. This diet also involves eating a lot more often.
Hi, I'm a 16 year old girl and I'd like to ask some questions about this diet.
1). It is stated that I have to adapt for 4 weeks and then go through a bulking phase in order to get into the weight losing part. Is it possible to just lose weight without the bulking part?
2). How long does the whole process take until I can eat normally again?
3).Also, my uncle did this diet but he mixed it up a little by having 2 weeks of high fat no carbs and then 2 weeks of healthy eating and after that he slowly went back to his normal eating habits and he said it worked. Is it possible to try that way or it wouldn't work?
4). How active should I be while I'm doing the anabolic diet? And what type of sports should I do?
I really hope you'll answer all my questions because I'm very confused and I'm interested in trying out the diet, thank you!
