Gahh here it goes:
Since I now exercise for personal pleasure, I only lift about 3-4 times a week.
I hate cardio with all of my being so I only do it when I feel like it, which is like almost never. The only enjoyable cardio I do are walks, hikes, sometimes I go on jogs. When I am cutting, I sprint (which is not fun, but doable). But it’s not a consistent thing.
Two a day? You mean working out twice a day? I used to do it when I was powerlifting. I don’t think there’s anything necessarily wrong with it, just make sure you’re eating enough. And you’re not going bat-shit crazy for both workouts that you can’t even function as a human lol. When I was exercising twice a day, I was doing my normal powerliting trainings, and then I would go for sprints and accessories.
I do all three.
I change it often because I do what I want.
I don’t really fuck w/ preworkout because it’s too sweet for me and sugar makes me feel sick. I just either take caffeine pills or drink coffee or nothing at all. I used to sometimes drink energy drinks but that shit is not good for anybody.
I never drink protein shakes. Because that also fucks with my stomach and after a workout I rather eat a huge ass steak, than to chug a sugary shitty drink (again I dont like sugar very much, i am lactose intolerant, and good protein powder is expensive anyway). I understand that protein shakes are more bio-available than protein from food sources, but I just never cared that much about that.
