Sorry to waste a whole new thread on such newbie questions, but I've had these annoying questions in the back of mind for days now. First off, is it really needed to take in protein before you lift? I've read some articles and a majority of them say you do, but others say you don't, so I need some answers there. Also, when doing a cable row, are you supposed "to go with the weight" and let your upper body get pulled as you let the weight back to the starting position? If you don't know what I mean, here's a video link,
I was taught to never lean forward and to just keep a stationary position with the back. In addition, what would be a good replacement for dips that would workout the similar muscles? I'm doing dips in my routine A but I want to find a similar exercise that can be an alternate that would get me the same results? Also, since I'm kind of still new to Bent Over Rows, I'm thinking of just training myself on the side in learning how to doing it, but not including it in my routine just yet. But as a result, I must find exercises that work the same area, I was thinking somewhere along the lines of chins, t-bar rows and cable rows. I have chins in the first routine called A, but the routine called B I have bent over rows, so what could I put in for the bent over rows as a replacement? Also, what kind of foods do you guys buy that are cheap and have a lot of protein in them. I currently buy whey protein which seems cheap per serving and I've also found this tub of turkey that they sell that has 45 g of protein and it's only 3.99, I'm just curious what else you guys buy that I can just run down to the store and is very cheap. Also, also, also, before my lifts I normally consume complex carbs to give me the energy, of course. But I'm also curious to other things that can give you the energy before a lift. I just started to eat some honey before a lift because I've heard it's good before a lift and it gives you the energy you need, even though it's not a complex carb. Thanks guys, if you need both routine A and B, then just ask!
