    New Guy

    Hey ladies / gents I'm new here. This is the first forum I have ever subscribed to so any help in working out would be awesome. I have been going through threads and reading everything that I can to help me out, so I don't have to bother you guys about workouts and nutrition. One question though has anyone used ( Status ) at all I was thinking about getting their product?
    also glad to be here!!!

    Guess I should have added abit about me so anyways I'm active duty Air Force, I'm 26 yrs old and 190 lbs. I left on deployment and got hurt so lost all my gains I had and couldn't do any type of workout to stay fit since I had to learn to re-walk / run. Lost a lot of confidence in myself but I'm making the change and pushing forward and getting back into working out it's going to be a long journey for me but I'm ready to put in the work. Thanks in advance for any and all help

    First off, thank you for your service. If there's anything I can do to repay the favor, just ask.

    I don't know the extent of your injury but it sounds severe. We all lose some confidence when we are painfully reminded that we are human but most guys regain that confidence in time. I hope you find a way to do the same.

    Well the injury is done and over with and I appreciate the help. I have been going over a lot of threads to see what I should purchase for myself be it whey protein and vitamins etc. I have fish oil pills if that counts. The workouts I do, not really sure I don't have a set regime anymore I just go in the gym and workout but I'm thinking of getting a personal trainer at planet fitness and see if that works out for me. I just need to get back in the gym and bust my ass.

    If you have any idea on the things I should purchase for working out that would be awesome. I don't want to use GNC they are money hungry with their sale prices. Or if there is a good workout plan to follow that would be great to. I'm sure I could look up the nutritional part of this all.

    Welcome aboard. Don't get too wrapped up in supplements. I like buying individual items in bulk on Amazon and making a pwo, some fish oil (or krill oil), and some protein powder.
    Sorry more about your overall diet than supplements. Supplements are just what they're called--they supplement deficiencies in your diet.
    Don't be afraid to ask questions, but you'll get better answers if you do some research first.

    Welcome to UGBB. Thank you for your service. The important thing is to get the training nd diet nailed down. As far as supplements go, Costco also sells whey protein.

    right now I have no limitations since all the physical therapy and pain management is over and my goal is to have muscle and look good again not just for me but my wife also. I can be at the gym any and all days 7 days a week if need be. I wake up at 330am and work until 2pm and usually just go to the gym after that. I have been going over some threads about products but not sure if I should get any since there are mixed reviews on everything. I used to just eat a lot on deployment and gained everything that way since the food was free.
