I dont think the French lift at all. Hmmm. Mail order I suppose? any advice
How long are you there for?
I did find protein powder in Southern France at Sports stores.
as much cheese as they produce, there has GOT to be some form of whey powder available.
French don't eat chicken?
Here for a month and a half. Hence the NEED for protein of some kind. Just found a fellow gymrat who has a store to send me to!
BTW: Ive been told by a few guys and girls here that french girls dont like weightlifter guys. They prefer skinny dudes with no muscle. Apparently the girls here are scared of muscley fellows.
I thought they were more impressed there than here. Seriously.
Kinda sorta not really.
Like a lot(most?) women around the world, they prefer fit/athletic but not necessarily the big mass look.
i'd totally be cool there
Not so, from what I hear. Although Im sure youde be fine. Shredded is loved everywhere.
Ladies love me cause Im soooo vascular - Stewie.
There's less competition that's for sure.
Hard to find there. Honestly dude, you're in France, who gives a fuck. Eat tons of éclaires and foie gras, even if its for 6 weeks. I traveled through France for 3 weeks this summer with my girlfriend, didn't exercise once, ate everything in sight, and was totally fine when I got home. Go running or something for exercise and worry about the weights when you get back.
And yeah, nobody there lifts weights. The guys are very skinny on the whole. We went to a Rage Against the Machine concert with 15,000+ people when we were there, and walking out of the middle of the crowd with my girlfriend on my arm was hilarious, everyone parted to the side like I was fucking Moses, afraid to bump into me. And I'm a small dude, was only 190lbs or so then.
Awesome, thanks! Ive made a few friends here in the last few days. One of them happens to be part owner of www.bodystore.fr so I think I may check both of these places out.
Honestly, I am the biggest dude I have seen since I got here on Monday and that is just sad. 6'4 218lbs is not big. These people are tiny. Lol.
go to f'ing grocery store or deli and buy yogurt, eggs or meat. you do not NEED whey protein!!!
Working 14 hour days without a grill while trying to cut. Of course I dont need whey, but do I want it? fuck yes I do.
Working 14 hour days + Paris does not compute.
im with memor...just have fun bro. eat what you want and boss out..worry about all thatcrap when you get back to the states. turn ya swag on for now and enjoy it
This reminds me of that "what's the biggest sacrifice you have made in the name of fitness" thread.
