What surface do you run on? Vibrams + pavement is probably not a great combination...

It would be helpful to add a bit to your question about what your eating schedule currently looks like on spinning days.

comment Foods with optimal amino acid profile?
@Jojo I believe it; much of that list came from jssm.org/vol3/n3/2/v3n3-2pdf.pdf. In reading it, it doesn't seem to me like egg was actually separated into white and yolk, they were just "suggesting" it because of the fat content (another topic). My feeling is that the 1.00 rating actually applies to whole eggs (just goes to show don't believe everything you read on wikipedia!).

@Ivo I once tried an energy drink - shot size - that had over a year's supply of vitamin B in it (according to FDA recommendations).

comment biceps gaining slower than the rest
The lift heavy advice depends on whether he means a strength gain or a mass gain (not clearly specified in the question). If he wants mass, then lifting heavy isn't the best solution and 8-12 reps is about right. If he wants strength, then definitely lift heavier, but NOT to exhaustion...

comment Crunches before or after sit-ups?
+1 Agree despite my answer. The OP asked specifically about the order of sit-ups vs weighted crunches, but a better solution would be to focus on full-body exercises like squats or deadlifts.

comment Crunches before or after sit-ups?
@Jeremey Well, I assume you are working on strength when you're loading weight onto the machine and you want to be fresh for strength work...

Is this question different in some way from fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/262/… ?
