Question for you funny junk version of /fit/. I have be training to do kayaking and a bit of canoeing for just under 6 years now, this has left me with quite largely unbalanced muscles. The right side of my upper body is a lot stronger than my left and my left lower body is stronger and larger than my right. I am moving away from doing a lot of sport now and am joining a gym to stay in shape and am hopping to rebalance my muscles. Is it best to spend more time working on my weaker side or if I work out both sides equally will they rebalance naturally. inb4 too much masturbating

Scooby is right. I was gonna say that first and I wouldn't have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for those kids and that dog.
User avatar #16563 to #16562 - scoobydoobydo (08/08/2014) [-]
Workout equally and in time they will rebalance. Stick to dumbbell training so each side gets its own weight to move.
User avatar #16570 to #16563 - blargchikahonkhonk (08/08/2014) [-]
Would you suggest equal weights on both sides my left arm and right leg can lift less than my right arm and left leg

Yes equal weights. You will look like a complete moron with two different weights.

I'm a chef and for 5 days a week I cycle 4.6 miles x4 (there and back twice). I work in a busy kitchen where I am constantly running around or just twisting and turning. Average of 9/10 hours a day.

Drink heavily and smoke heavily, I hope my job cancels some of the damage out!

just make it easy for yourself. Have your running shoes by the door and make an arrangement that requires the least minimal time consumption. Then you just make a habit of getting up, jogging 10 minutes and going in again. You build on it from there.

I have been working out for a while but i can't seem to gain muscle, i went to a nutrisionist but here in my country they suck and gym trainers are just random dudes that only recomends anabolics and shit
i have willpower, i used to be 1,80 and 105 kgs (pure fat) and now i'm 1,90 and 75 kgs. Using 4chan's bodyscale i am a skinnyfat, i have been going to the gym for the past 18 months with almost no results (aestheticals) .
User avatar #16625 to #16503 - newposterintown (08/10/2014) [-]
Just eat correctly and push yourself hard.
Make sure you eat well so you have energy, keep yourself hydrated, stretch your muscles, and make sure you get some protein but only if that's something you worry about. I'm a vegetarian, so I eat three eggs every morning.

What if i want definition?
User avatar #16518 to #16514 - Mward ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
Cutting fat is easy. 4 months out of your life for amazing definition. Putting on muscle is very hard. Just do 6-12 months eating a surplus with weightlifting to put on muscle, then diet on a deficit with cardio until you get what you want. The biggest issue I notice people have is they think they can put on muscle and cut fat at the same time. To get the best results you need to pick what you want to do, and stick with it. Put on muscle, or cut fat.
User avatar #16520 to #16518 - theguywhofarted ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
But i don't have that much fat left, according to my weight, but i still look skinnyfat. I even weighted less but it was the same.
User avatar #16521 to #16520 - Mward ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
How much do you usually eat and what? And at what times during the day?
User avatar #16524 to #16521 - theguywhofarted ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
i breakfast in the morning 1 cup of cereals and light yogurt. for lunch usually steak, pasta, chicken with potatoes, rarely pizza or fried chicken. some random snacks during the day every 2 or 3 hours, like some rice crackers. for dinner usually chicken, vegetables or pork.
Not much of any, i don't eat a lot, some weekends i eat some icecream or other random dessert, not a lot either and not more than twice a month.
User avatar #16528 to #16524 - Mward ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
I know it's a scary thought, but don't worry about fat gain. The biggest issue i've seen a lot of people do (Including myself when I started) is eat too little when trying to put on muscle. If you don't eat enough of the amount of macroes you need (Protein, Carbs, Fats) You will never put on muscle. Building muscle is very difficult process for the body, if you keep breaking it down (Working out) And don't feed it enough, it won't focus on repairing muscle, and your gains will suffer greatly. I don't mean eat as much of anything as you can, but figure out how many calories you burn in the day (There are many calculators on line that will help you figure out your metabolic rate). Then figure out how much Protein you need (Try for about 1.5x your body weight in grams) How much carbs (Take how many calories you need per day, and cut that in half. Then divide that by 4, thats how many grams). This should leave a pretty big gap in your caloric needs though, try to fill that with fats (Polyunsaturated and Monounsaturated, not saturated and DEFINITELY not Trans. Remember 1g of fat is 9 Calories) After you've done all of this, try to eat about 500 calories more each day than you burn. You should gain about a pound a week, but if you haven't been seeing gains for 18 months most of it is going to be muscle. Yes you'll gain fat, but don't worry about that. A year of bulking should only put on about 20 pounds of fat, with a good diet that can be cut off leaving a shredded sexy body in a quarter of the time you put it on.
User avatar #16533 to #16528 - theguywhofarted ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
That sounds good enough for gaining muscle, but shouldn't i first lose most of my fat? I have weighted 150 pounds, for a 6,3 feet guy is not much and i still looked skinnyfat (even while working out)
User avatar #16536 to #16533 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
The reason you are skinnyfat is because you don't have a lot of muscle mass. Work out to gain muscle mass first, then it'll be a LOT easier to lose fat.
User avatar #16534 to #16533 - Mward ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]

im 171 cm tall and weigh about 68Kg. overall i dont have much fat on my body but i have a beer belly. i dont work out or go to gym most physical exercise i get is from when im out playing football(soccer) or basket ball with friends. we usually go about once a week and play for about 3-4 hrs.

there is no easy way of achieving this but what is the most efficient way of loosing the beer belly. any advice would be appreciated.
User avatar #16637 to #16502 - LtMcG ONLINE (08/10/2014) [-]
Running. Soccer/Football or basketball is not enough cardio endurance for you blood to run oxygen through that area. You need to pump blood in that area with prolonged distances and time with running.

Consider also light weights and long circuits. You can do this all body weight exercises.
Example:

1 min pushups
1 min situps
1 min squats
1 min pullups
1 min lunges
1 min crunches
1 min planks/bridges
1 min jumping jacks

That's an 8 min circuit. Now do that 3 times. See how long you last.
#16552 to #16502 - expand (08/08/2014) [-]
don't drink beer? also check if you have APT (Anterior Pelvic Tilt)
As a sidenote, I can see that there's no way to remove fat ONLY from the belly, so if you're sure it's fat you'll just have to start eating healthier
User avatar #16495 - geothermal ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
I need to lose about 20 pounds. Any way possible, i dont have any money to fund anything special, i would prefer to do this diet based.

Help with motivation to eat less would also be useful, i dont do much and i dont need many calories but i eat a bunch anyway.
User avatar #16511 to #16495 - skeptical (08/08/2014) [-]
Not gonna happen bud
You need an actual change in lifestyle
Anything strictly diet-based will only be temporary and will only damage you further
Try just running at night after your last meal, before you go to bed. Activity before sleep helps cancel out a good deal of fat storage as it's when you're asleep that your body begins to store fat (this is the basis of how sumo wrestlers gain so much weight)
Also try smaller meals, but more of them throughout the day

Sorry if im not answering these questions correctly, im not sure how to answer them as you ask them, because i dont remember alot of things. I dont even know what i ate today besides some popcorn and tacos.
User avatar #16523 to #16522 - geothermal ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
Its in general not good, i only ever have one real meal a day and thats dinner, which is usually healthy. Tacos, some kind of pasta, grilled chicken, etc...

During the rest of the day, i just scavenge, i eat alot of poptarts, granola bars, and bread with things on it.

I do not drink anything other than water though.
User avatar #16526 to #16523 - Mward ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
Alright, i'm starting to get a good idea of what you want. Weight loss all boils down to calories in vs calories out. My best guess from the calories you burn in a day are probably around 1960, which is your RMR. (Resting Metabolic Rate). (A VERY basic Formula is weight x 10) That's if you just lie in bed all day and don't move. If you don't do much through the week that's a good estimate. You probably burn much more during the weekends, but two days out of the week won't do much if the rest of the week is storing it up. If fat loss (Never say just weight loss, that can be from anything in the body. Muscle, water, etc) is your goal the first thing I would reccomend is just make sure your calories are below that in a day. 500 Calories less than your RMR per day will equate to about a pound a week, strictly diet. There are a million other ways to help it though. More Activity of course, but also eating more meals through the day in smaller portions. Try for 6 with around 30g Protein and 60g Carbs. Also try for more complex carbs like Oats, Brown Rice, and Sweet Potatoes. I would also reccomend try spreading your Cardio (Bike Rides) Into smaller sessions through the whole week.
Drinking water is one of the best starts, when I cut I try for about a gallon and a half a day. It's really underrated how much water can help fat loss.
This is like the most basic advice you can get, but the basics are the skeletal structure of anything fitness related.

So, I have a question about what you can do exercise wise on your own in your home. I'm working to try and motivate myself to loose a lot weight. I'm currently 235lbs (not all fat but a good amount). I'm basically raising my siblings when I'm not in college (I'm 21. Siblings are 3, 6, and 7) so I'm not really able to get out unless I'm going to/ coming from college. I have to come straight home after classes to watch the kids. During the summer (or anytime really) I'm not sure what I can do exercise wise while I'm stuck here in the house. I'm going to start biking to the school when the semester starts but I want to do more too. I would also like some advice on how I can get healthier food in the house or maybe some diet ideas since I don't know the first thing about dieting. The person that does the food shopping for the house (mom) generally doesn't care if the food is healthy. It just needs to be cheap. Because of this we usually have junk food or not so healthy food. Thank you for reading and I'd appreciate some help.

User avatar #16491 to #16481 - slenderwolf (08/07/2014) [-]
I'm in the same boat as you, do push-ups, planks, squats, and chin-ups. You can get a pull-up bar for like $15 off of amazon

Healthy foods arent more expensive if you buy them in bulk, but they take longer to prepare I guess
You can do pushups, curls/squats with milk jugs or something, dips off a sofa or table, crunches, sit-ups, wall sits, jump-rope, lots of stuff

Let me educate you real quick on supplements. Take 100% Whey Protein AFTER you workout. When you workout, your muscles basically tear, and protein repairs them. I will link you to everything after I tell you everything. For a guy like you, I would say take a mass gainer. Mass gainer powder makes you gain weight, but since you workout when taking it, that mass will turn into muscle. I was overweight and took a weight loss shake, because I wanted to lose weight, so I have no experience with mass gainers, I am just explaining how they work. NEVER take pre workouts, they are harmful for your body. ALSO, NEVER EVER take creatine. ONLY drink whey protein. IF you need any help or need me to tell you some good workouts let me know, if you intake the right foods, drink your protein, and do the right workouts, you'llsee results fast.
User avatar #16561 to #16560 - donnybergerstory ONLINE (08/08/2014) [-]
shit, forgot to link the protein and shit: www.gnc.com/GNC-Pro-Performance-Mass-Gainer-Complex/product.jsp?productId=41343406 (GNC is VERY expensive, so if you want, check out the vitamin shop. They are a lot cheaper. I just trust the GNC branded products cause they have actual doctors doing their homework on their supplements.)

Also, eat a lot of broccoli.

User avatar #16590 to #16584 - donnybergerstory ONLINE (08/09/2014) [-]
yeah, that'd work. Broccoli would be better though, considering it's not as light as spinach. You would have to consume in large amounts. Like when eating broccoli (i know this will be hard but...) eat a pound of broccoli a day, and a gallon of water a day. It might be hard at first; actually, it WILL be hard at first, but you will see rapid results. The reason I say consume a lot of broccoli is because people automatically assume that when they want to gain weight they should eat fast food, which is wrong. You want to consume a lot of calories through super foods, such as broccoli, or spinach. Also eat A LOT of chicken, rice, and fish. I don't know what your goal is, so set one for yourself. Watch workout tip videos in your free time, devote a lot to working out and eating healthy, in a month or so, it will be like 2nd nature, you'll soon forget what it's like not to be at the gym. The more you go, the more you'll like it. Don't make it a chore, make it a lifestyle.

alright imma let you in on a secret
i was the hungriest skeleton in jan 2013, 92lbs 5'10

drink 3 gainer shakes a day, i recommend star nutrion gainer pro, mix it with milk and ur ready to go.
and eat all large meals, going to mcdonalds? buy 2x what you usally get
at home eating dinner? take 2 times as much as u used to
then you wanna lift ofcourse
and chocolate bars n stuff are also good to eat (when dirtybulking)

Well 50 pounds is pretty good. Keep it up. At 5'10 you'll probably have to get to 170 before you start really looking muscular.
#16479 to #16476 - imalex (08/07/2014) [-]
im 6'0 now...

User avatar #16487 to #16479 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Well if your 6 foot now I'd say even bigger then that. I'm 6'3 and 190s and I still have a bit to go.
User avatar #16488 to #16487 - imalex (08/07/2014) [-]

Yes. Adding calories of any kind will help you break the curse.

if you build your body just for your look
you are a faggot
User avatar #16464 to #16445 - ohmeghon ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
What if I'm building my body to look good and to have a healthy lifestyle so I don't die fragile and young?

What if you do it for the looks to get chicks?
Is that still gay?
User avatar #16449 to #16445 - guanyu (08/07/2014) [-]
I do it for health, but the new look is also a good motivator.
User avatar #16448 to #16445 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Most people start out like that, but then it usually evolves into something else.

Alright guys have a question about lifting and exercise in general. Sorry if this has been post before
1. I'm starting my b.a degree in engineering this fall, so i only want to either do cardio or lift, i don't feel i can handle both( yes i know cardiovascular health is important, hell i WANT to do both, but I want my studies to come first, plus me running around my campus should be cardio enough. UCF is huge). I'm a 5'7" 180 lbs chubby guy, with some conservative tits . With a clean diet with a decent amount of carbs, what would happen to my body, in general , if only weights were put into the formula. would i burn enough calories to kill my fat and bit up a bit of muscle in say, 6 months?
User avatar #16470 to #16429 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Lift. It takes less time, increases metabolism and will burn much more fat then just doing cardio. Find out what your body needs in calories and go about 400 calories below that MAX.
User avatar #16462 to #16429 - imalex (08/07/2014) [-]
only lifting weights will make you loose fat but wat slower
i would recommend 1800kc a day
User avatar #16468 to #16462 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Not true.
User avatar #16473 to #16468 - imalex (08/07/2014) [-]
very true
User avatar #16475 to #16473 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Lifting weights, when done correctly, is much more efficient at burning fat. Doing full body movements makes your metabolism skyrocket. Much more so then endurance exercise.
User avatar #16453 to #16429 - songemot (08/07/2014) [-]
Yes, you can absolutely lose weight by lifting weights. Calories spent are calories spent, regardless of whether it's through strength training, endurance training, or cardio. Like moechler said, full-body exercises are best for this. As for carbs, that depends on the individual. Some people are more sensitive than others. For example, I can stay thin while eating as many carbs as I want as long as I keep my calories within reason; my brother can't. You'll have to figure out that part yourself.

Interval sprinting is basically where you sprint as fast as possible for a short time, then walk or jog for a short time, then repeat this cycle for the duration of the workout.

Burpees can also be a very effective cardio workout with only a small time investment. Set a timer for 15 or 20 minutes and do as many as possible.
#16436 to #16429 - moechler (08/07/2014) [-]
for your cardiovascular health: do a lot of full body excercises (Squats and Deadlifts are the best for this purpose). My heart beats faster than after 20 minutes of treadmill after those excercises.
User avatar #16431 to #16429 - scoobydoobydo (08/07/2014) [-]
If you remain consistent with your lifting then yes you will burn fat. Muscle mass also increases metabolism. It's easy to fit cardio in. Just do some interval sprints for 10 minutes. It doesn't have to be an hour on a treadmil wasting your time.
User avatar #16434 to #16431 - comandante (08/07/2014) [-]
What are interval sprinting?
User avatar #16458 to #16435 - scoobydoobydo (08/07/2014) [-]
Sprint, walk/rest, sprint, walk/rest, repeat.

Alright gentlemen. Here's my conundrum. I used to be skinny. Now i've bulked up. But i'm looking for more muscle mass in my chest, shoulders/trapz/bi's+tri's.

I'm 21, about 210 lbs and 6 foot (on the dot pretty much)

Trick is, I want this mass in a couple weeks. Not huge gains, but somethin. Ya know?

I have a LOT of time at my disposal, a bowflex all-in-one gym, two 25lb dumbbells, a 50lb squat bar (which I use for curls and single arm presses) a pair of twisting push up grips, and a hanging punch bag w/proper gloves. I also have a couple huge tubs of protein shake and one of creatine powder.

Can anyone help me with a routine or something? Much appreciated!

Also, pic on left is me current (only i've slimmed the stomach a bit since) and on the right is me roughly 4 years ago.

I ain't looking for ripped (I don't define too well) lol I'm looking for mass. But yeah, right now i'm just going to town with my bars and the heavy bag.
#16439 to #16422 - Orc (08/07/2014) [-]
**Orc rolled image** Er, dude, I don't know if this is going to offend you, but I don't see a difference.
User avatar #16456 to #16439 - themassivefail (08/07/2014) [-]
pictures don't show it well, but there's an 80 lb difference there
User avatar #16504 to #16456 - gingeredhead (08/08/2014) [-]
What is that in kgs?
User avatar #16505 to #16504 - themassivefail (08/08/2014) [-]
Bloody Americans... XD

It's 36.2 Kg difference.

I'm 95 kg's now.
User avatar #16506 to #16505 - gingeredhead (08/08/2014) [-]
cool. That's about 30 ks more than me.
User avatar #16507 to #16506 - themassivefail (08/08/2014) [-]
It feels good man. I like the mass.
User avatar #16508 to #16507 - gingeredhead (08/08/2014) [-]
That's good.
I'm kinda thin, so that's why i'm much lighter.
User avatar #16423 to #16422 - scoobydoobydo (08/07/2014) [-]
Lifting for four years. Wants mass in a couple weeks. Not possible. Steriods.
User avatar #16425 to #16423 - themassivefail (08/07/2014) [-]
Most of my mass was gained in a month of pretty hard work. I know it's possible, just not how to isolate.
User avatar #16427 to #16425 - scoobydoobydo (08/07/2014) [-]
Ehhh you can't have lifted for that long and say you did most of your development in a month.
User avatar #16428 to #16427 - themassivefail (08/07/2014) [-]
I never said i lifted for all four years. Those are just relevant pictures. I only really started about a year ago.
User avatar #16430 to #16428 - scoobydoobydo (08/07/2014) [-]
OK then 1 year is a bit more reasonable but still it takes time. Results only come fast when you first start.
User avatar #16421 - rubikzcubesolver (08/07/2014) [-]
Hey guys so I will get straight to the point. I am 15, 5'8, and about 225 pounds. Yes you read that right. Luckily, I don't look as fat as I am. But basically I want to lose 30-40 pounds in a few months. I hate running but LOVE playing basketball, not just shooting but running pick ups at my local court(fat but a very on point shot) Would like this basketball love into my excercise daily so I actually want to excercise. Help please.
User avatar #16424 to #16421 - scoobydoobydo (08/07/2014) [-]
Just change your diet. Eat at a caloric deficit and keep playing basketball.
#16437 to #16424 - moechler (08/07/2014) [-]
yeah! ketogenic diet (almost no carbs) + caloric deficit + a lot of sports will bring results
