Tyler - Keep your reps in the 8-12 range. 10-15 total sets for each muscle group
Your shoulders are jacked! What's a good routine to do on a day for shoulders (putting on size)?

Tyler - Shoulders have been something that have always been a strong point for me. Every workout though I pick some sort of overhead press, a lateral raise, and then 2 rear delt exercises and finish it off with some sort of shrug. I'll be posting a video of my shoulder workout very soon!
Tyler, what are good examples of pre-workout carbs? My goal is to put on mass, but im eating as clean as possible. I'd like to maximize my energy and focus on the right type of carbs pre-workout (other then supplement related). I know oatmeal is great, but i typically take my pre workout meal at work and cant really run to the microwave before i do so. Thanks!

Tyler - Stick with either brown rice or sweet potato.
Do you think it's okay to lift weights while you have a cold? When i say cold i mean Sinuses, runny/.stuffy nose, mucous etc.

Tyler - Of coarse. If you feel like hitting the weights then do it. Only time I'll take off from being sick is if I feel very weak and lethargic.
When putting on mass, you say straight sets are best, increasing your the weight or reps you lift every workout to get stronger. If doing a body part similar to yours and lifting in the 6-10 rep range, how many overall sets (and/or exercises) per muscle group do you suggest to inflict growth?

Tyler - I keep all of my reps from 8-12. As for overall sets for larger muscle groups I'll do anywhere from 16-20 and for smaller groups anywhere from 9-12.
How are your workouts like? Do you do straight sets or super sets or circuit training to get a rip body like yours?Also, how many times do you do cardio in a week?
25 December 2011
Tyler - If you take a look back at my workout logs I used to do a lot of supersets,trisets, and giant sets. I've even done circuit training. I used to box,bike,swim,run. That being said I definitely was in shape and my cardio was the best it has ever been BUT...My passion is the "bodybuilding" lifestyle and style of training. Since I linked up with Hany I do all straight sets. Right now I'm doing cardio 6 days a week. That is something you will have to experiment to see how your body reacts to certain amounts of cardio.
Tyler, Are you familiar with Animal Stack and Animal Test? If so, what do you think. Thanks man

Tyler - I am not familiar with those products. I have taken supplements from Universal Nutrition before and they are solid products. If I were you just google reviews and see what comes up.
