T1DM Powerlifting, Bodybuilding and High Intensity Training


T1DM Powerlifting, Bodybuilding and High Intensity Training

An open forum to discuss nutrition, routines and how to work with type 1 to fulfill your potential. Exercise routines and how to dose with insulin both with pump and MDI to avoid acute and latent-onset hypoglycaemia. Picture is me after a cut.

One of the best overall short synopsis by one of the best of all time Dorian Yates. Remember all of this is coming from a Mr. Olympia and all the associated supplements that come with being a professional bodybuilder. For those of use who already take enough shots (get the drift?) we have to tailor our intakes and cardio to how our bodies react in the real world. The biggest things are the main points and about goal setting. Long-term and short term achievable goals are the best things for the beginner through the advanced lifter.

Well Jon, Don't take this above your doctors advice. These symptoms are also caused by dehydration and this happens to everyone. Diabetic or not. Make sure you stay well hydrated. Especially during Cardio, Aerobic or any other exercise you do.

Hey guys, anyone have troubles with nausea during cutting season? I find that when dieting and burning fats rapidly I feel sick and often vomit much like when I suffered ketonacidosis as a kid. Any thoughts or suggestions?

So, I'm a skinny T1 trying to gain some weight (goal is 20 pounds) I have pretty skinny genes, always has been very hard for me to gain weight. I'm thinking about getting the Rip:60 program and a protein shake from Metrx (whey protein) which as far as I see doesn't have many carbs in it that could raise BG. Any advice from any one of you that has experience in this is much appreciated!

I agree with the quote much more than the quotee. Don't kill the messenger, I just cite the source.

I am speechless. Why would a "vegan" make a statement suggesting that he was willing to make any sacrifice necessary for the sport and then eat celery?

Of course the guy is "HUGE," what being 6' and 185 lbs.
