For me to help you better.

Alright for all of you new to this... I've got to point out a few things.

Pictures are worth a thousand words.
Post what you eat using pictures like I do. Don't LIE about what you eat. For one, its not going to help me give you better advice because I will assume you're doing good. So if you post all the GOOD meals you ate and discarded the bad meals or neglected to take a picture of it then its not going to help me have an idea of what you're doing. I don't care if you eat bad. Its your body and your choice what you decide to put in there. Its your results, not mine. I can help you the best I can but you're going to need to help yourself first. If you write down from which hours you ate your meals just once; I know it's not real because you're not likely to do the same thing every day! Be real with yourself. Your blog is for YOU to help you keep track of what you're doing.

Here's an example of Nick's blog:

http://nonpareilnick.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-eats.html

You can see how he added pictures along with description on his meals and how I can give him some suggestions.

I also like this post:

http://justlikedat9.blogspot.com/2011/01/dieting-worst-part-to-change.html

You can see he posted all the bad food he ate and he realizes that this isn't going to work. If you type out that you did everything perfectly.. there's nothing I can help you with.

What are your goals?
I have no clue what you look like or what goals you may want to obtain. For me, I like to put on lean mass. I don't like fat on me. That's just personal preference. I like lifting heavy and I want to increase my strength gradually without getting injured. I also like to balance my physique and stay proportional. It's just something I want to do for myself.

Anyways, about you... pictures of yourself will help. You can look back at it and see how much you gained. I can give you better advice in which direction you need to go. Understand that I don't know everything. If I don't know then I will say it.


What is your motivation?
I know most of you will quit when I tell you the truth that its not for everyone. It takes time and money if you haven't figured it out by now. But hey, I'm not here to waste your time or mine. I can only help those that are willing to do what it takes. I'm not going to buy your grocery. I'm not going to eat your meals 7 times a day for you. Nobody is going to do it for you but you. Understand that all of this is repetitive. Nothing will happen over night. If you made 5 good meals and ate it in a day; you're not going to turn into a super-sayian-like-warrior over night. It takes time so be patient.


Anyways... let me summarize this: just be real to yourself.

  8. ArussTots- Much better. Cut the cardio out for bulking.

    Falafel- You've disregarded my entire post. Fail.

    Brayn- Good blog. You need more food with protein sources.

  10. May you write a blog on how to build lean body mass without adding a ton of fat? Thank you Hanh!

  11. Hanh today I did chest work out but for some reason when I started to bench with a bar bell I didn't feel any stretch in my chest. So I tried and use dumb bells I had a good stretch on my chest, am I doing something wrong with the bar bell? I want to use bar bell so I can do till failure because I got a safety lock. On the other hand when I work with dumb bell its the opposite.
    Thanks - John

  12. Hey Hanh. I just made a new post, let me know what you think. Thanks for your help.

    Also, do you go out and party (drink) on the weekends? How badly does that destroy the diet hahaha (kinda hard to be sober every weekend).

    ReplyDelete
  13. lc88chavez- thanks

    PH Doctor- Eat clean and work out. The posts prior is pretty much everything.

    johnkhuynh- I don't know because I can't see what you're doing. Dumbbell or barbell is preference. You can build a great chest with either.

    JustLikeDat- What you put in your body is important. Alcohol doesn't belong in the body. Alcohol converts to estrogen. If you want love handles and bitch tits in the long run then that's your choice. Decide what you want to do if you want results or have fun. Or half ass it then your results will reflect upon your actions.

  14. thanks for the tip and advice. i will try to cut back on the excessive make up, although it's hard... make up or junk? what to do?! quite the dilemma. >_<

    ReplyDelete
  15. I figured you wouldn't be a big fan of alcohol. You're super disciplined. I guess that's an area I'm still working on although I have been doing pretty well in that department lately. Having a set schedule with work/school has definitely helped me. Thanks man.

  16. Hey Hanh, I just created my blog and put photos up of what I eat. Could you check it out? I am overweight and have a solid muscle foundation under lots of fat. I want to slim down and cut a total of 100 lbs. I just want to look good and still have great muscle definition. Could you check out my meal plan so far? aoboss.blogspot.com
    thanks! Oh I love your blog and youtube vids =)

  17. cool blog! cant wait to see next update, would also be interested in just seeing how you go about your own routine, as in how you build do you seperate body parts for different days or just choose one day upper body next day lower etc, also check out my blog if you got the time.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Jenny- feed the belly :)

  19. Hey Hanh whats good man? Your blog is sick man, has some really good stuff on it man.
    I was looking back at some of your photos man, damn son you have gained so much man.
    But one thing i noticed is that once you first started you won't that big in fact you look bare skinny. So my question is, would you cut down your weight first then build?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Poet- I don't understand your question...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sorry dude, so my question is:
    Is it okay/good to bodybuild even if your a little overweight by like 16 pounds or is it better to lose it before you build?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Up to you.. if you're fat you're only going to get fatter if you try to bulk. You wont see much definition. I would cut the fat that way I can see my actual gains.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah yeah i'm feeling that but like the problem is yeah, is that i ain;t sure how much fat i have left on me because i have alot of loose skin due to previuos diets. And if i were to lose the remainder of fat then i would have sooo much loose skin and then its kinda hard to get rid of. You get me?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't know how to get rid of loose skin. It may be something you need to research on. I've never had that problem so I never looked into it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hanh, what do you recommend for to gain weight / muscle mass? I weigh 120 lbs. I've been working out for a year. I was pretty much skinny when i started out, weighing the same and i don't really consider having alot of fat at all. Ever since i feel like i just gain more strength rather than bulk and muscle mass to be honest. I'm still weighing 120lbs and still feeling skinny, but more toned than before. My target is 140 lbs by the end of this year.

  27. GreenHornet- I don't know what to tell you. You've disregarded my whole post about me having no clue what you look like. Come on man, READ. I've already explained how to diet and what supplements I recommended. So check the videos on my channel.


    Steve- Good work. Keep as much protein in to retain the muscle.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey Hanh :D What are your thoughs about creatine cycles? Some people make breaks (month on -month off), some dont - and im quate confused about it :).. What do you think about it ?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Tath- It doesn't make a difference for me. You can do it they way they recommend if you like.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hey Hanh, been following your blog/youtube channel for a while now; learned lots on the way. I've created a my own blog and going to update it as frequently as I can with pictures; would you mind taking a look at my meals and provide me any feedback? Thanks in advance!

    thanks for the inspiration

    ReplyDelete
  35. michael- np

    kvnlol- You have no pics of yourself and I'm not sure what you're trying to do. I'm assuming you want to cut since you're 20% body fat. Your food is lacking sources of protein. The only significant sources I see are eggs. Lets work on improving that diet first.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for the critque, i'll get photos up now and i'm not 100% sure what my bf% is so maybe you help me estimate please!

    ReplyDelete
  37. kvnlol- Maybe 20-25% would be my guess. I am at 11% measured by a machine. Caliper test shows I'm at 7%.. but its not really accurate just to give you an idea. But yeah you're gonna need to clean up the diet and do a lot of cardio otherwise you're going to pack more fat on the waist area from bulking. I know a lot of guys that make the mistake of doing that and being discouraged from the amount of fat they gained. So that's just my advice to you.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hey Hanh. I've been training for a year now and when I first saw you, I started to push myself even harder now. Workouts have become really intense and heavy, but results are coming as well :). So, currently I'm working on my diet. I used some of your examples and I think they are great! So here's a basic meal for me. What do you think?

  42. Hey Hanh, thanks for the inspiration to stop being lazy and taking this working out thing seriously. I'm 135lbs, around 125 when I first started lifting weights. I'd like to get to about 150-160lbs but I want to keep the definition I have now. I feel like I've hit my plateau. (My pullup strength is the same as what it was 2 years ago, no matter how much I workout). How did you get over your plateaus over the years? I know diet probably has something to do with it but I don't want my body fat % to go up. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
