Muscle Building Regimen
About an hour after my Post-Workout Shake I have a solid meal of:
1 (if I'm at work) or the same as Meal 5
I don't think just one workout works the best. I am constantly changing rep rage, rep tempo and volume to make sure the muscle is always being shocked into new growth.
In the off season I try to focus on the basics and doing heavy compound movements to build that dense hard muscle.
Steve Cook's Personal Philosophy
Nutrition is the most important aspect when it comes to being healthy and in shape. By eating lean protein, complex carbs, veggies and healthy fats you will provide your body and mind with the proper nutrients it needs.
By staying away from fast foods, sugary sweets, and anything with hydrogenated oils, you look and feel better.
Motivation is key! My Motivation comes from a deep love for weights and to see how far I can push myself everyday in the weight room. I want to be the best I can genetically be. As healthy and as strong and lean as possible.
I sometimes have to remind myself not to overdo it. As I've gotten older I realized how important recovery is. Ultimately I want to be the next Steve Reeves.
I want a body that is appealing to the masses. My goal is to have the perfect balance of size, shape and symmetry.
While good quality supplements can make a difference (especially when dieting) they aren't an excuse to have poor nutrition and sleep habits.
By taking the right supplements for your goals and in the right amount, one can achieve results faster than without supplementing. It's important to know exactly what you are putting into your body.
Follow the instructions...just because some is good doesn't mean more is better!

I have started going to the gym for a month and a half but I wasnt following any order... I recently find this page n I like this program from steve cook, mostly the trainning cus as for the nutrition n suplementation I cant followed due to economic problems, but I least I can follow an order in my workout. My personal goal is my chest cus I have what is called pectus escavatum so I was doing to much chest excersice n end up injuring my shoulder. hopefuly following this program I will avoid those injures n be more discipline. I wish i could follow the complete program but even though I think I will see results eventually.
What would you say are the necessary supplements? Those are a lot of supplements which is a lot of money that I don't have. Following your program what would you say would be the most absolute vital supplements to have?
The basic one is Whey protein, then (and this is all my opinion, I have started taking supps a year ago), Creatine(drink a lot of water) and BCAA's and L-glutamine, which are in a lot of wheys now a days, this is what I take... If you need a extra pump to go to the gym take a pre workout, but for me that is more psychological than really the supp.
