Try and avoid or keep supplements to a minimum. Whole foods is the way to go in general.

Protein shakes are very helpful and easy, a couple shakes a day times after some rigorous training can help big time. Cottage cheese is another top draw. Pistachios are another rich source of protein too. Peanut butter yet another.

Don't discount good fats too. A wonderful source of slow burning energy for people who train on the regular. Get them nuts in - walnuts, brazils, almonds. Paneer too!

I got to add: just increasing your protein intake without training to rip your muscles won't make you grow. The two come hand in hand. Don't forget some cardio too!

Are there other basic exercises you'd recommend for a beginner?

What's wrong with supplements ?

Doctors don't give out vitamins, supplements unless there is a deficiency.

Overload of vitamins is not good either. So only take them if needed and within the recommended daily intakes.

Best thing to do is to have a blood test to make sure you are not deficient in anything, then your doctor will advise accordingly.

Vitamin D and B12 are not normally tested within the full blood test, so one may have to request them.

Jkvlondon penji has some good alternatives.

These are just examples from the Internet, but your doctor may have publications for the public.

What type of exercise routine do you want to do? Weightlifting? Cardio? HIIT etc? What are your goals?

What do you want to achieve? A flat stomach? Ripped body?

Mostly getting stronger and muscular.

If you are a beginner and want strength then you can start on stronglifts program. This program WILL make you strong but not really muscular. For a mixture of strenght and muscle building I would recommend Dr Casey Butt's program the weight trainer. I have personal experience with both so you can choose any. Also depending on your body type you can do cardio as well. I have been doing Muay Thai for the last 6 months and it's awesome cardio and also teaches how to fight.

Do you have a little budget for some basic/cheap equipment?

I suggest he gets his mass./strength up a bit before doing a martial art. That'll put some weight behind his punches/kicks.

First thing (in your mind) break your body up into certain parts:

  • Shoulders
  • Arms (biceps and triceps)
  • Back
  • Core (abs and general mid-section)
  • Legs (quads = front of top leg, hamstrings = back of top of legs, calves)

I'd suggest a mixture of weights and body weight exercises at this stage.

After you've been training for a year, you can try some creatine, but get that year of training out first.

You have to be careful, some of the high protein foods are also high in carbs!

That's why it's important to get advise either from a dietician/nutritionist or a personal trainer if one is doing exercise.

It also depends on how much one is having, if it's in high amounts or whether it's balanced with other foods.

Vitamin supplements are not usually need as suggested above BUT MINERAL supplements are necessary.>>we lose out on minerals because of the stuff sprayed on veg and fruit>>>you know your fresh apple from grocery store has 22 different chemicals sprayed on it ??

>>problem is that nearly all multi mineral supplements come with vitamins. >>>so you wanna take a ggood look at mineral content and not worry about vits.

I used to eat a lot of broccoli as well and this is good source of protein>>>>>>>>the shakes should be limited and only used if you really pumping out or post heavy workouts. Or you could also use the new amino acid drinks for after workout to help with maintaining.

I've worked with a trainer for a few years >>that's why dopey me wannabe knows a thing or two

Seriously man>>>check out Protein content of BROCOLLI because it is super high >>>someone told a guy at gym it was more than steak.

the best bit is that it also has NO FAT but you will fart away most nights but feel good about it :)

Raw spinach leaves (as part of a salad, uncooked), cottage cheese, and cucumber (believe it or not). These are easily available, and can be incorporated into a healthy desi diet with the minimum of fuss.

Oh, and porridge!! Then start pumping some loha like it's about to go out of fashion.

jacfsing, you never said if you had some small budget for some equipment?

There are a couple of things you can buy to keep you good at home.

I'd imagine a barbell, dumbbells, and various sized plates would do for now. And a bench if you're feeling a bit adventurous.

I'm from Canada and get really good equipment from kijiji. The equivalent of kijiji in America is Craigslist. They have some cheap equipment that will be more than enough for you.

Cool. That's enough.

Grab one of those doorway pull up bars to start with. They are REALLY cheap. Like $25.

Like one of these:

Let me know when it comes, and we'll set you up with a routine you can do with them.

Grab this too: It's one of the best, most compact dip stations ($80), I've got one, they are awesome. This with the pull up bar with let you training loads of different body parts without taking up loads of storage space like other equipment would.

If any one else out their wants to get fit and strong, grab these two things now! The (1) pull up bar and the (2) dip station. Get your ar5e in shape, if you're a Singh and your looking weak or kudhoo (due to laziness), you KNOW you need to sort your slob ar5e out! Do it now. Order the stuff! Jump in, don't delay!

I haven't ordered it yet; however, I will when I get the time. (I do admit that I am slightly lazy) To your question about America, (I don't live in any major cities), people aren't rude or crazy as they make it in the media, many don't know much about Sikhs, but they don't have any unnecessary hate to them either. Most people own many shastars because of the freedom to own Shastars here, many evangelicals and missionaries constantly preaching, (even to their own people), it's basically a normal country as long as your not too bad.

    • In the increasingly feminised world, Islam is seen by some as the last bastion of masculinity.
    • How many of them are "religious" and "spiritual" in prison like they are "gay for the stay" And the ones that go to Syria to fight for ISIS are hardly less animalistic. There are a lot of perks to be muslim in prison, it's like being bribed. I very much doubt they cook their own food, they probably get their food from outside. What it means is that prison services are discriminating against non muslim prisoners. This muslim conversion is like a gang and yes it is like a brotherhood but muslim brotherhood is built on a "us" versus "them" mentality. Which makes sense because they are in a constant state of war "Dar Ul Harb vs Darl Ul Salam ". It is not like a Sikh brotherhood. True brotherhood is not built on antagonism. However, if you feel this great respect for this being that you are an east end cockney bad boy tearaway ensure you are not becoming a dhimmi.

      Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh  Sometimes we need to reflect inward, what I'm about to say may even hurt a little more (not my intention, but I think it will) during the ardaas when you were asking for high marks ji, before you asked you heard of Gurmukhs who undoubtedly had it way worse, mothers who had children cut into pieces put around like a necklace, Gurmukhs who were tortured to death by grinders, now if we think about it, they have more of a reason to be mad then you do. They lost there lives. You had one bad exam grade. They still at the end of the day said thank you to mahraj. They had such priceless thinking. We can't even be the dust on there feet! That's the pyar we as Sikhs should aspire for. To just get sad with mahraj over one grade, I don't think that the pyar for mahraj was there at all in the beginning, I think that the pyar may have been for someone getting the job done, that someone we (I'm in the same boat) decided was mahraj, and as long as our desires were filled we didn't have a problem, one exam grade and like the manmukhs we are (again you and me both) abandon mahraj. So now we have a choice, accept that we messed up ask for forgiveness and stand back up, or get mad stay mad, until we find someone else who can bless us (Loads of these "babay" out there) with good grades and live life based on lies. You will get true sikhi, you'll get the true pyar, just stay strong. If any of my words offend you. I'm sorry. If our ithhaas/gurmuth philosophy offended you, I'm not sorry. Again I'm the type of pakhand to go out there and tell other people this, yet I myself probably would get mad over doing an ardaas like you did. I'm one of those who can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk.  Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh 
    •  No mate, I don't hate you at all.  You talk too much and that's kinda irritating!
    • Again, it's not about pinning blame, or going after certain groups. It's just a case of reminding people that as Sikhs we need to look out for each other. I'm not blaming Amritdharis for the woes of the world, lol. I just think we should be at the forefront of certain issues that I wouldn't expect others to bother with. But that's not happening for some reason, or at least not in a noticeable manner.
