Yo, what's going on guysé Troy here with WeightGainNetwork .Tonight I am going to be watching my Oklahoma City Thunder win the series against the GoldenState Warriors. I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I am a huge basketballfan. My Oklahoma City Thunder are finally not choking in the playoffs. They're up threegames to one against the Golden State Warriors, who had the best record in NBA history thisseason. I'm calling it right now, they're going to win the championship, so hopefullyI don't curse them on YouTube right now, but they're going to steamroll the Cleveland Cavaliersin the championship. That is my bold prediction. I'm a diehard basketball fan. Literally theonly TV that I watch the entire year is the
NBA playoffs, so I am pumped to watch themtake home the Western Conference tonight. I'm also really excited because I just boughtthat yacht right over there. I don't know if you guys know this, but I make millionsof dollars making these YouTube tutorials for you guys, so thank you all for watching andhelping me realize my dreams. I'm going to actually start filming tutorials from that yacht.I think we're setting sail for France and probably Australia after that, so I'm goingto go on a really cool world tour, so I invite you guys in in my life. That is the officialWeight Gain Network yacht right over there. Today, what I want to dive into are ectomorphworkout tips. As you guys might know a quote
unquote ectomorph is a naturally skinny guy.I myself, way back in the day, was like 80 pounds. Actually a little more than that.One time I was 80 pounds, but I outgrew that and as I was a freshman and sophomore in highschool I was about 130 pounds, now I'm like 195 ï¿½ 200. I've had to try every singlelittle trick in the book. These workout tips to increase muscle and increase strength,they are things that I've actually implemented into my life in the last few months. I kindof hit a plateau and I really had to assess what I'm doing with my workouts, what I'mdoing with my nutrition and how I can overcome that plateau. I've made some really big changesto my training just in the last couple weeks.
I wanted to share them with you guys becauseif you guys are at a plateau, you're trying to increase your strength, you're trying tobuild more muscle mass, I think these are going to be really powerful. My first workouttip is my new workout split that I'm on right now. I was doing a bunch of different workoutsplits. I know I've had a lot of different tutorials talking about these workout splits.I did the insane squat and biceps challenge, where I was hitting my squats, hitting mybiceps every single day for 30 straight days. I had a little bit of growth. I've definitelyimproved my squat a ton. My arms are definitely leaner, but I was trying to think about whatmy most developed muscle group was and what
my least developed muscle group was. I wouldsay my traps, my chest and my shoulders are way ahead of all the other parts of my body.How I've been training them for the last couple of years is I just hit them really hard oneto two times a week. The muscle groups I think are the least developed, I think I've actuallybeen training the most. Just studying what a lot of fitness models do and a lot of theguys with the best physique in the world do, I decided to completely change out my workoutregimen. What I'm doing especially for my biceps and my triceps to try to jack up myarms is I'm only allowed to work them out one time per week, but during this one workoutI have to do 40 sets, so I literally script
out like an insane workout for biceps andtriceps and then the entire workout, I don't deadlift before, I don't do squats, I don'tdo benchpress, I don't do any other activity that's going to drain me physically. I focusall my energy and intensity on that one muscle group. I literally did like a 43set bicepworkout last week Monday and then I did it this week Monday and my biceps are more sorethan they've been in over two years, so just putting more overload, more intensity, moretraining volume and all of these different exercises that go into a 42set bicep workout,I feel like I'm going to make more progress on my arms over the next few months than Iprobably have in the last year to year and
The Best Bodybuilding Carbs Sources For Muscle Growth
What's going on, guys. Sean Nalewanyj here SeanNal BodyTransformationTruth and in this tutorial today I want to simplify the issue of proper carbohydrate selectionfor your muscle building or you fat loss diet. I get a lot of questions all the time, wherepeople asked me what the best bodybuilding carb sources areé Whether they should eat potatoes versus riceé Or if eating pasta is okay. Or, if it's okay to eat some chocolate aspart of their diet.
Ultimately, this is actually very straightforward. So I'm just going to break it down intosimple stepbystep terms here. So first off, all carbohydrates no matterwhere they come from are ultimately broken down into the simplest form of glucose. And that glucose is use to provide energyfor your muscles and your brain. So whether you eat a bowl of rice or an apple,or you drink a chocolate milkshake it all ends up as basic glucose once your body hasprocessed it. So in that sense, a carb is a carb becausethe end product that your body is actually
uses is the same regardless of which specificfood it comes from. Now, some people will hear that and think,â€˜Well, since a carb is a carb, can I just get my protein and fat needs for the day andthen fill up my carbohydrate macros with nothing but cookies and ice cream and cake'. And the reason why that's not going to beideal for your bodybuilding results or for your health is because, although all carbohydrateare ultimately broken down into the same end product the different foods, their packageup in are not the same in terms of their overall nutritional value and fiber content.
So a carb is a carb, but a carb containingfood is not a carb containing food. For example, if you ate fifty grams of carbohydratein a form of sweet potato you'd also be getting vitamin A, vitamin C, some B vitamins,some potassium, some fiber and other nutrients as well. Whereas if you ate fifty grams of carbohydratesin the form of gummy bears, you'd still be getting the actual carbs but you'd begetting next to nothing in terms of additional micronutrients and fiber. And for that reason even though glucose isglucose, you'd still want to base the bulk
of your carbohydrate intake around what wouldgenerally be considered as clean wholefoods. Because that's going to make sure that you'remeeting your nutritional needs and your fiber needs for the day, which is going to optimizeyour body composition and your training performance. The other issue that gets brought up is thequestion of absorption speed. So some people will say that you should besticking to low glycemic carbs as opposed to high glycemic carbs, or complex carbs asopposed to simple carbs. But for people who are otherwise healthy andwho are following a regular training program, this really isn't something that you needto worry about.
The main reason for this is because the glycemicrankings of different carbohydrates, which is how fast they raised blood sugar levels,those rankings are based on consuming each carbs source alone and in a fasted state. And it's pretty rare, if ever, that you'llbe eating pure carbs alone in a fasted state, and when you already have food in your stomachor you combine it with protein and fat, the absorption speed of your carbs will go downsignificantly. So in terms of choosing the best bodybuildingcarbs, the practical steps are really simple. The first step is to get around 8090% ofyour total daily carb intake from minimally
