    umm well Im lifting like the big barbell, 5 reps of 25kg umm 10 sets of those. Ive been going on the pec machine doing 5 reps on those aswells 10 of those. Then the rowing machine for 20 mins. I cycle a bit. Then go and do cuircuit training across the corridor. Which involves like sit ups on those big balls (lol :rolleyes: silly me) and running and skipping etc for half and hour. Im not sure If I should really change my routine and these guys in the changing room were recommending me to drink like this whey/ creatine mix or something should I ?

    Whey protein is important, but only if your diet is sorted, otherwise it is pointless. SOme people tend to just overload with protein powders, end up with big belly and then complain. If you take too much, it will either go down to ur gut or youu will literally piss i out.

    But I would recommend you try it, maybe take 1 shake a day and work on your diet more.

    In regards to your training, is that what you would do in an avg session or for the week?

    got a quick question! Basically, im on a placement year out of uni and im working full time. Im going to the gym to build muscle and its going quite well at the moment. Think Ive got my diet almost spot on! However, when I go back to uni next september im going to have so much work to do so i cant go gym and wont have the funds to buy all the food. So my question is: Will I lose the muscle ive put on if I cut down going to the gym and stopped eating as much?

    Generally, YES! Since you have been training so much and eating, your appetite has increased. If you cut down all of a sudden you will definately feel the effects. Believe me, been there and lost a helluva lot of weight.
    My suggestion is that you gradually start training less ie if your doing 4 days a week, maybe 3? Also, even when you get to uni, it shouldn't really be a problem. Stock up on pasta, noodles etc (V. cheap way of getting ur carbs) I n reg to protein, whey protein powders are quite cheap and chicken breasts once/twice a week shouldn't be too much of a financial burden.

    Hope that helps
