Anyone tried modafinil before? Not really a fitness thing but its a smart drug that is supposed to increase concentration and create a kind of tunnel vision for the tasks you have to do so you dont get distracted (schoolwork and such). Anyone have any experience with it?

Hey guys, I'm really new here.
I'm a girl who's very overweight and I've been going to the gym for a few weeks now (around 3-4 times a week)
I really hate cardio, so i usually do them once a week only. The rest are machines.
I want to lift weights, but my gym only has 17.5 kg and above dumbbells. There are 6 kg ones, but they're very light :/
I can't really lift those 17.5 kg ones and sometimes I get really scared to use the weights because i really have low self esteem. So I retreat to the machines area.

So what to do funnyjunk? Any advice on losing weight?

Everyone has the diet part covered, but if you can do Strength Training, that'd be awesome. Most girls have a terrible amount of muscle mass and have a lower metabolism as a result. Work out with weights, build some muscle, raise your metabolism and it'll make losing fat that much easier. Plus eventually you can dedicate your workouts to actually building muscle and you'll build a very strong and sexy physique.

I think I don't really have the diet part covered... I sometimes over eat...
I don't drink soda, prefer unsweetened tea, milk or coffee though.

I love strength training, but I don't really like cardio and such. Except for swimming though if i had to be honest.
User avatar #19499 to #19494 - marinepenguin ONLINE (13 hours ago) [-]
I meant that everyone had already talked about diet. Listen to what everyone's saying here and you'll be fine.

Oh, and I give you a strong word of caution when it comes to working out/running bc if you are very overweight, the running/weight lifting will affect your already stressed joints and bones, and you are more prone to injury. Go on long walks through the park, listen to some music or an audio book, and work a sweat. Remember to listen to your body and not injure yourself!
User avatar #19498 to #19451 - marinepenguin ONLINE (13 hours ago) [-]
Strength training won't hurt her joints.
User avatar #19450 to #19376 - jayfizzle (10/20/2014) [-]
if I think I know what you mean by "very overweight", then most of your weight loss will happen in the kitchen. You need to change your diet asap. This doesnt mean eat less, it just means eat smarter. KungFuZerO has the right idea of types of foods to eat. If you drink soda, I guarantee you if you quit (and dont drink sugary substitutes), your weight will drop 10-20lbs within a month. Good luck getting in shape!

Thanks mate im replying through anon right now cause I apparently forgot my password :/

If you're doing any kind of strength training, thats great.
But the fact of the matter is you're going to lose the most amount of weight in the least amount of time from eating healthier. One easy thing for shopping is to shop around the edges of the grocery store. Fruits and veggies, lean meats (chicken, turkey, fish), and whole grain bread.

There are barbells, but I'm really afraid to injure myself as I don't have a spotter.

You don't need a spotter unless you're doing bench and even then just ask for one or learn how to do the "roll of shame".

My dad went from 130kg+ to bout 95kg from just cutting back on coke. (He wasn't less active than anyone else his age, while being super fat, though). He later began skiing during winter, later cycling for a period.

My advice is to cut out most anything that's only unhealthy, I.G chips, chocolate... You can still enjoy some unhealthy dinners every now and again. Also set off time for walks, maybe some cycling. Don't stop going to the gym

Simple changes in lifestyle can do a lot. Don't starve yourself, though.
In Norway, we had an add where several women in a cafeteria was talking about calories, diets, etc.. Then a pretty fit girl walks up and gets some ice cream. The women confront her and ask if she's not worried about the calories or something like that, and how she could keep so fit. "I just walk to work"
Either a fitness add, or a convenient store add, can't remember.

My dad got from super fucking fat to decent, lost more than 40KG in a year with that philosophy.

Alright, I feel like sharing. Again
1 year, 4.5 months
May 2013 > Oct 2014
320lbs > 220lbs
100lb difference
3xl t-shirt > Large t-shirt
48in pant size > 34in pant size
I regret not measuring BFP and other measurements like my waistline before and after Also, let's get this out of the way. Yeah, I look like a tool on the right. Whatever.

I've gotten really far, but I need to switch it up. I lost about 90lbs of fat with an all cardio, calorie counting approach for the first 11 months. I've been lifting and bulking up with my remaining fat for 5 months now cutting another 10lbs in the first month, but now I'm stuck at 220lbs, and my goal is to reach 200. I know how to get there, careful calorie counting without sacrificing the necessary amount of protein and carbohydrates I need daily. I just need the motivation and a little bit of insight on some things I wanna try.

I'm on a daily, two scoop, musclepharm combat powder protein shake, and I just finished a 30 day creatine cycle that really helped a lot with leaning out. Again, I'm terrible with measurements and progress tracking, but trust me, the creatine helped a ton What I need help with is leaning out the remainder of my fat without compromising the muscle I've built and I have some options in mind I want to get some opinions on.

Option #1
Lean out, using whatever means necessary, (Cardio, fat burners) Without compromising muscle.

Option #2
Keep bulking up using the fat I have, possibly gaining weight in the process before leaning out.

I'm really curious what you think of fat burners and fish oil when it comes to leaning out. Does it work? Should I keep taking the protein shakes with it?

What do you think FJ?

TL;DR Lost weight, bulked up, having trouble leaning out to my desired weight without losing muscle. What do?

Stop looking at calories. Stop looking at weight. Stop using anything powdered. Now is your chance to step everything up, the hard part is behind you. Eat more meat, and get a blender.

You have two options if you wish to move forward; go cardio (athletic), or get hella ripped (buff).
The cardio route will make you look more like the pic I had to save and search pictures of half naked men for you. Appreciate. This is for more fun stuff, cycling, x-sports, hiking and all of that good shit.
You can buff up, if you like. Back when I was in HS, I think 15 of the buys in my class actively tried to get big. A popular option, seems like that is what most fitness sites I know like, so I might be wrong about cardio being cool.

If you focus on cardio, you should still train strength regularly (pull-ups are great), preferably several days a week. You're also gonna use your blender a lot more.
If you focus on getting buff, you should still do some cardio. This choice requires a lot of meat, though. Don't neglect your blender.

And again, stop looking at your weight.
User avatar #19443 to #19381 - nefarian (10/20/2014) [-]
Could you give me a bit more insight about the blender?
User avatar #19394 to #19381 - chiktikkavaspaus ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
I'm still trying to incorporate a lot of meat along with the powder. Tilapia, Eye of round steak and Chicken breast are the big 3 I normally have. Sometimes I switch it up with Salmon or a fattier steak once in a while. I see the powder as a booster, and i understand it's completely unnecessary. Especially the powder I'm taking, because it claims to have all the aminos that are naturally occurring in the meat.

See, My issue here is that I wanna get bigger, not extremely lean. My friends say I'm gonna be a tank But I am too focused on this leftover flab I have under the shirt. It definitely doesn't build confidence even though it is tons better than having that 100lbs of extra weight. Sounds like I just need to focus on eating better and keeping with the lifting 5 days a week. Minimal cardio? how often would you suggest? because I've heard some people say you need 30min daily, and some say 40min split in two sessions every lift day. It's all overwhelming to be honest.

In the end, my goal is to be big, cut, and strong, but I want to be cardiovascularly strong too.
User avatar #19397 to #19394 - haroldsaxon (10/19/2014) [-]
Take in mind my answer is a bit biased, as I am a cardio fan.

Cardio, mixed with healthy eating is the best way to get rid of excess fat. Push yourself. Hard cardio exercise is A LOT harder than strength exercise for you, simply because of routine.

I just for the sake of getting rid of fat, I would cut back on meat (eat slightly less than an average person), focus on green shit. I really love throwing shit in a blender , and run 'till you're drenched every day (you can substitute running with a variety of options depending on what fits you best). You will most likely see an effect within 7 days.

Put away powdered shit. Only use that for the explicit purpose of gaining weight, and be careful with it.


You can also do much less running, but still some. Simply watch your diet for a while, while still doing serious strength exercise. A big change in what you eat can be hard, if you exercise a lot.
User avatar #19398 to #19397 - chiktikkavaspaus ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
Thanks. I should also add that I want to be big and cut, but I also want to be functional. I'm not a body builder, I don't want to be shredded for the sake of being shredded. I want to be fit and muscular, but also able to Jump really high or be able to do a backflip. those are some odd examples, but I think you get it.

Back to the powder, it's already incorporated into my routine, would it be bad to keep using it and just cut back on some meat, replacing meat with the powder, or should it go entirely? Because the powder has only helped me with building muscle, I haven't gained any fat with it. That's what I want, more muscle. I just want to get rid of the fat and the only way I see that is through cardio and a better diet. I just don't want to lose the muscle I've built, so I'm stuck in the situation of focusing on leaning out, or just keep building muscle with patience and lose the fat over time. I'm leaning towards the latter. I just need to be more patient and fix my nutrition a bit.
User avatar #19399 to #19398 - haroldsaxon (10/19/2014) [-]
Never ever ever replace meat with powder, ever. If it is really hard, cut down on it. Breaking and changing routine can be really hard, but for the sake of losing the fat, at least cut it down.

I recommend putting it away for a week, then consider using it once you're only looking at gains. You can exchange it for some sort of energy bar, if you like.
#19375 to #19370 - xxxsonic fanxxx (10/19/2014) [-]
>Keep bulking up using the fat I have, possibly gaining weight in the process before leaning out.

That statement makes no sense at all. You're going to bulk using your current body fat?
User avatar #19392 to #19375 - chiktikkavaspaus ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
I was tired as hell, but what I meant was keep bulking up with the fat eventually going away over time due to muscle burning it in my recovery time.

What about that part is funny? I never tried creatine before, so I tried it for 30 days. I noticed that it helped, but I probably won't use it again.
User avatar #19424 to #19393 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]
It's not a steroid cycle like you were cycling Tren or Test-e for 30 days which is the only appropriate way of saying you were cycling something in weightlifting because that implies performance enhancers.

You were just using creatine powder which is just a common supplement.
User avatar #19461 to #19424 - chiktikkavaspaus ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
Oh. Well that's how I knew it. Everyone I know who is into fitness, a few that are body builders, say that you need to cycle creatine. I'm new to the world of supplements outside of muscle milk.
User avatar #19487 to #19461 - TokenWhiteKid (18 hours ago) [-]
you can "cycle" creatine as in take it for awhile, gain some weight in water weight, stop, lose the water weight, and then go again, but there really is no need at all to do that. It's just a very common chemical you find in meats.

User avatar #19465 to #19452 - oborawatabinost (23 hours ago) [-]
Between my shoulder blades, sort of. It's not my spine, it's the muscles around it. Might have been caused by planks. It's not serious for a doctor, I'm up walking around. Can't do anything to strenuous.

i wanna take steroids. its impossible for me to make gainz.
i could bulk for months, make good muscle mass, but when it comes to cutting its like i lose all my gainz i made in the bulk?? i actually paid someone to help me out cause i thought i was fucking up, but my metabolism is too fast
someone recommend me to try this steroid called tren 75
i never ever want to use steroids but i want to make gainz so badly. i went onluy looked at all the side effects, but my most concern is what if it goes horribly wrong?
like sometimes id take pre workouts and ill feel like im dying i feel dizzy and light headed, even when i was bulking
my question is, has anyone here experimented with them? if so how did they go?
User avatar #19391 to #19359 - scoobydoobydo (10/19/2014) [-]
You are bound to fail. Don't do it.

I have a love hate relationship with winter. I work out in my garage, so when it starts getting cold around here my workouts also get very cold. Last winter it was -15℉ out here and my hands would stick to the bars. But I also love it because working out in the cold makes me recover very very quickly in between sets and even in between workouts. During the summer I may have to wait 8-10 minutes in between sets of squats or bench because it's 110 outside with humidity. It only takes a minute or two in the winter at most. Could be explained in part by new studies about cold temperatures increasing a hormone called Progesterone (i think that's the name) which helps recovery and muscle growth immensely.

Also, what do you guys think about preworkout? I've taken it on and off whenever I feel tired or unmotivated, and it pumps me up and makes me excited to workout when I need it. I've also been reading interesting things about it actually helping you get more weight during your workouts (energy drinks like monsters, rock stars, and even 5 hours energies have seemed to have the same effect). Seems like a pretty good advantage similar to what creatine does.

for me pre workout is a need I take pre workout called mr hyde massive pump
#19361 to #19321 - baglesbites (10/19/2014) [-]
I cant even imagine squatting in sub zero temps. When winter rolls around, my knees are super stiff and I need 10-15 minutes of warm ups before I even touch the bar. As far as pre workouts go, they are nice and help get you into a more focused and intense state, a reliance on the caffeine or other stims is a bit of a double edged sword.
User avatar #19353 to #19321 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]
for preworkout just use a nice cup of black coffee

It really wakens up my CNS. Good CNS + me getting pumped verbally before lifts absolutely clears my mind of everything but the lift I'm doing.
User avatar #19357 to #19353 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
I hate coffee. And I don't usually need preworkout, but if I wake up around 430 am to train, I'll need it to wake me up a little bit along with getting me pumped to work out.

User avatar #19346 to #19321 - europe (10/18/2014) [-]
I only just started lifting this summer, so I only have experience with the summer so far. But with previous sports it could be problematic to get through the cold after having exercised, because I'd often end up with a cold.

Never taken pre-workouts, though my breakfast this morning was, as always, oats. Which are apperently pretty good pre-workout according to some sites (the training went great today)
User avatar #19323 to #19321 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
First of all, wear gloves in the winter dude....Second of all, I work out in a shed, so I'm in the same boat. Recovery definitely goes better in the Winter. It is the season of gainz after all.

As far as pre-workouts are concerned, I never take them. Ever. Whenever I'm tired/not extremely motivated, I just go out there and once I get started with the warm-ups my energy gets going on it's own.
User avatar #19325 to #19323 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
I have gloves man, I got them before my hands started getting sticky last winter haha. And I stop taking them after a month or two, you get used to it after a while. But they help me ramp up the intensity and have better workouts if I time them well. They have their uses in my opinion.
User avatar #19335 to #19325 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
Sure, I wasn't saying nobody should take them ever, I was just saying that I personally don't use them.

To achieve the body of glory, you must train hard and heavy.

The myth that there is a giant separation between training for strength, and training for looks is just that - a myth.

If you progress in strength with heavy compounds (Deadlifts, Bench Press, Squats, Push Press, Weighted Chin Ups), you will put on size as well as strength. How 'shredded' you get is a result of your diet.

I'm sick and fucking tired of this whole "I just train to look good, I don't care about strength" bull shit, especially from beginners. Get strong, and you will look good.

Not to mention, women love a man who is strong as hell.
#19341 to #19290 - KungFuZerO (10/18/2014) [-]
Thats why I stopped going to /fit/
Everybody there thinks that any exercise over 6 reps is going to add 30lbs of muscle mass but won't make you any stronger.
Similar to r/fitness/, but they're better about it
User avatar #19344 to #19341 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
I spent the last 2 months doing nothing but sets over 12 on squat, and yesterday I hit my old 1RM for triples and doubles.

Progressive overload builds strength and muscle period.

Now, of course there is such a thing as training your nervous system, and it is possible to grow stronger number-wise without gaining a ton of muscle, but if your 10 rep max increases, your 1 rep max will increase too.
#19345 to #19344 - KungFuZerO (10/18/2014) [-]
I just recently switched back to a hypertrophy routine where each set is heavier with fewer reps, plus a dropset on the end. People call it a bro workout or whatever but my gains are crazy so I'm not complaining haha.
User avatar #19292 to #19290 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
People don't realize you need to reach about an intermediate level of strength before you even start thinking about being a powerlifter or bodybuilder. They also need to realize that power and size are not mutually exclusive. If you are strong, you are also going to be big.
User avatar #19351 to #19292 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]
The last part isn't true

There are different types of muscle growth

One makes your muscle cells bigger but not stronger, while the other makes them denser but they stay the same size.

The former is used by bodybuilders while the latter is used by power lifters

I know power lifters and olympic style lifters and they're really crazy strong, but they aren't huge at all.
User avatar #19355 to #19351 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
Yes I am aware of that, but bodybuilders are still going to be strong. Not as strong as a powerlifter, but strong nonetheless. And there have been many strong powerlifters who have also been bodybuilders. To be elite in your category you have to train mainly with one style, but you can be both.
User avatar #19354 to #19351 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]
**makes them denser but they stay the same size past a certain point
User avatar #19358 to #19354 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
Ronnie Ronnien was a powerlifter, Mark Rippetoe did both as well. Those are just two off the top of my head. They were both huge dudes when they powerlifted. Lifting in the style of powerlfting does favor cross sectional muscle area adaptations and muscle density over size, but if you have a large muscle like a bodybuilders begin to do that same kind of training it doesn't get smaller. That way you get that bodybuilder muscle having the same cross-sectional area and muscle density adaptation as the pure powerlifer, but with a higher potential for force output. So a bigger powerlifter has more pontential to lift more weight then a smaller one. It's why mixing bodybuilding techniques into powerlifting is super benefitial. Ask studbeefpile, he does a ton of high rep work like bodybuilders do to increase muscle mass and strength.
User avatar #19362 to #19358 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]

If you ever even want to dream about competitive powerlifting, you have to juice. He admitted it somewhere on his forum but I can't seem to find it right now
User avatar #19366 to #19365 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
Ive never heard it. And no one in Competitive powerlifting or bodybuilding is clean today. All of them juice.

But You don't need to take steroids to be successful in both bodybuilding and powerlifting. Steroids only enhance the speed at which you recover. HGH helps with massive muscle gains, but has way more negative side effects.
User avatar #19371 to #19366 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]
Steroids, depending on the ones you use, also allow your body to maintain higher amounts of muscle mass

There are all kinds out there. Yes you have to take roids to compete otherwise there is no other way because you'll be blown out of the water every time.

See with healthy fats, they don't get stored as fat, you just burn through it, even though it's like 1 gram = 9 calories.

I try and neglect carbs after 3-4 pm because as you sleep obvs to say you're body will slow down and burn less and those carbs will be stored as fat.

I try and aim for just meat, veggies and fruit diet these days, with carbs in the morning only.

I'm kinda new to this whole thing as well, safe to say, if you heat up oils, it changes that's why it's fattening.

Also the peppery olive oil taste, the healthier, ahahaha.

Biggest gym myth ever = crunches burn belly fat

Theres not such thing as spot treatment. You lose fat from everywhere. To lose stomach fat (and therefore fat from all over your body) decrease your caloric intake and do cardio and strength training 2x/week each.
Remember, a deficit of 3500kcal per week = 1lb of fat lost

Start from assisted hand stand push ups to get use to your body weight.

Use these exercises instead of kipping
User avatar #19315 to #19314 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
That's for if you can't do ANY pull ups and have to resort to doing motions that mimic it to get used to the movement. Notice I said Kipling isn't for beginners. If you can't do a pull up, you're worse then a beginner. You're a novice and shouldn't be Kipping.
User avatar #19316 to #19315 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
But like I said
Stupidity + danger = do a lat pull down instead.

If you honestly cant rep out that last set of pull ups, work your back in other ways and dont try to count something that isnt a pull up.
User avatar #19317 to #19316 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
You aren't reading anything I'm saying are you?

Kipping is not dangerous unless you are a beginner, this is a technique that should be used by people who are not beginners.

Yes you can move to another back exercise if you are just trying to work back. If you want to get bigger and stronger with pull ups (which are far superior then most other back movements) you should use it only when reaching failure. Getting off the bar and doing rows isn't going to help you do more pull ups with more weight.
User avatar #19318 to #19317 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]

As for if your a beginner by a professional standpoint, there are as many opinions as there are assholes, but this article has probably the best definition I've seen when it comes to if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

User avatar #19319 to #19318 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
You are probably still a beginner because I'm only a lower intermediate. From your pictures I've seen, I probably have 25 pounds on you at least. Not ripping on you or your progress, just what I've observed.

And doing 20 strict pull ups with a 40 pound weight vest is a Damisimpressive feat and doing that will build a godlike back.

Or I could go over to the benches by the free weights, pull down my pants right next to you
and jerk off looking myself in the mirror.

"I'm working out my forarm!"
Ya, well there are other, better ways to do it.
User avatar #19302 to #19301 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
Well I agree that there are better ways to do it, since overhead press does the job nicely. But it's still a legit exercise, and if you don't have a gym to go to or proper equipment then it'll work just fine for you.

Wrist curls for forearm strength? Not the best example.
User avatar #19304 to #19302 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
Its like cross fit in my mind.
twice the stupidity, twice the danger of doing an overhead press.

And I ment finger curls.
Its what I do for forearms sometimes.
User avatar #19306 to #19304 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
Well to he honest, cross fit has been largely proven to be amazing for strength and size in a short time period. Just that the intensity is so high that you can't do it for longer then say 3 months without overtraining and crashing (this is coming from someone who used to be the anticrossfit guy, then I had to basically eat my words).

And they're essentially the same. You can just either do them standing behind your back or in front of you while sitting. Both really aren't that great. You're better off doing Kroc rows, dumbbell rows, or deadlifts for lots of reps. Those shred my forearms more then anything, and it was a bitch to get mine stronger since I have such long arms.
User avatar #19307 to #19306 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
Well I'll wait till I eat my words then.
Or at least ill wait until the guy on the pull up bar stops doing his 1000th "kip" and maybe he will manage to do 1 pull up.

And for forearms I usually just grab a bar, slap some weight on it, and do a timed hang with an alternating grip. Or I do a dead mans hang.
User avatar #19308 to #19307 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
I've actually read how kipping, while ridiculous, has its uses. That you should use it when trying to get max reps off of the pull up. So you'd do strict pull ups for failure, then kip or cheat for another ten. So next workout you should be able to strictly do another pull up or two before failing. They can be considered partial reps. One thing I've learned is to never bash something because it looks or sounds silly. Because you could actually use it to your advantage as one point. I've kind of had to do that with a few elements in cross fit.
User avatar #19309 to #19308 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
But like my previous argument.
Why do something that not only looks stupid, but is dangerous.
When something else is right around the corner.
I wana work out back but I cant do one more pull up? great there is a row machine, lower the weight.
User avatar #19310 to #19309 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
Kipping is only dangerous when your shoulders are not strong enough to handle to extra force on the joint. Beginners shouldn't do them at all. Plus a row machine does not benefit the pullup. Just like the bench does not benefit the pushup.
User avatar #19352 to #19310 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]

Kipping is absolutely retarded
User avatar #19356 to #19352 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/19/2014) [-]
I don't kip. But if you read the article I posted somewhere in this thread. You'll see that it has its uses as a partial rep to supplement pull ups.
User avatar #19311 to #19310 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
The major muscles worked are still the same.

It does not benefit that one specific exercise, but it does give you strength and gains in the same area.

And I'm sure the pull up does not get benefited by kipping.
#19343 to #19311 - KungFuZerO (10/18/2014) [-]
I was on marinepenguins side up until the end. Kipping has no place in anybody's routine, and crossfit is a load of horse shit and everyone knows it.
Regardless of any "benefits" of kipping, there are a ton of exercises that can strengthen the muscles involved in the pullup that are ten times less dangerous than kipping.

Thibeaudeau is possibly one of the most reliable people on the whole site. He went from anticrossfit hater, to someone who actually uses variations of the cross fit wods for periods of time to increase strength and size.
User avatar #19312 to #19311 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
Works the same muscles yes, but if you want to get better at pull ups you won't be doing rows. You have to do pull ups to get better at pullups. and if you get stuck? Do partial reps. Kipping is just an easier pull up, making it a partial rep. If you cannot continue to do pull ups in a set, start skipping so pump out more reps. I'll even link you the article about it just to show you.

Hello there, I'm here looking for some advice bet you didn't hear that one before I was wondering how effective strength training is for weightloss. I'm a kind of chubby guy and I want to lose some weight. So I went to the gym, but honestly I can't bothered with threadmills and hometrainer shit. So I was wondering whether strength training is a waste of time when your first priority is losing weight over gaining muscle.
I hope this is not a really retarded question, but I'm not really familiar in this scene.
User avatar #19384 to #19247 - haroldsaxon (10/19/2014) [-]
Cardio is way better.

Knowing your weight, and how active of a person you are, helps. If you're a really active person, even though you don't work out, means cardio won't work

I recommend going for walks, and some jogging. Cycle more. Cutting down on things that are just unhealthy (substitute chips/chocolate for fruit and nuts). You don't have to sacrifice too much in terms of regular diets, though, just hold back snacks and soda. Still do some strength training, but to gain muscles as goal.


Obviously, jogging, and more exhausting exercise is the fastest way to go. The easiest way is to go for a walk every day, and slowly building up, while doing some heavier exercise regularly, but not as frequent.
User avatar #19386 to #19384 - nustix (10/19/2014) [-]
I'm going to the gym either way, so in that case thread mills and hometrainers should be my priority or are you saying I could do strength training than like twice a week in the gym, but to really lose weight I should do some jogging at the same time.
User avatar #19387 to #19386 - haroldsaxon (10/19/2014) [-]
Short: Go to the gym 2-3 times a week. Jogg every day, or at least the remaining days.

Looking for outdoors activities available near you would be my best suggestion, to both get fit and lose weight. Gym is great for that as well. Not as well for cardio and to lose fat, but better in terms of muscle gain.

It all depends on how serious you are. Go to the gym 2-3 times a weak, go for runs the rest of the time is great. You can use the thread mill as well, but be really careful. They'll fuck your knees up if you overdo it.

Skiing, hiking, mountain climbing and all of that good stuff is great. The reason I like to recommend that, is that that is easier for a lot of people. It's often more motivating, more fun, and doesn't seem as much as exercise. Just going for runs is much easier, but demand more willpower.

Personal trainers are for motivation, mostly. Get a habit of jogging, or find an activity you like.

You can also look at your diet. My dad lost 20KG from cutting back on Coka Cola, so yeah
User avatar #19389 to #19387 - nustix (10/19/2014) [-]
I already cut back on my diet, but I guess I will just hit the gym and go jogging I live in the Netherlands so hiking is not that exiciting and skiing and mountain climbing are impossible. I might go do a sport like ultimate frisbee which is rather exhausting but I can only do that once a week. Thank you for the advice, I guess there is no way around cardio like excercises.

Strength =! Muscle mass
Muscle mass = calories need daily

Strength training will not help with burning fat, besides the actual act of the work out.
Should you want to burn fat, do a body building or aesthetic form of working out. The more muscle your body has, the more calories you need to have to keep that body. There for using up your fat stores on your body.

But to be brutally honest there is no point in asking that question.
because no offence, you are fat for a reason, and that reason is you are lazy.
meaning that you will not even use this advice and probably not even work out.

If you are actually working out or have been or will for more then a month color me impressed, but I doubt it.

Ill still give advice though.

I don't mind working out, but I quit doing it because my buddy who I used to train both in tennis and in the gym moved away. I'm currently 75 kg and 1.76 m you can't see I'm fat unless I pull up my shirt which is still fat, but not the kind of "I'm obese that's why I will never run kind of person". Thank you for the advice I will see if I can prove you wrong.

and sorry if I misunderstand you, but what you are basicly saying is that a bodybuilding form of workout is more effective than strength training, because I put on more muscle? I would have thougth that strength training would also result in muscle gain?
User avatar #19303 to #19296 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
Well it does.
Just not as effectively.

however like I said
strength does not equal muscle mass.
Like for instance look at pictures of strongman competitors, vs body builders.

The body builders have WAY bigger muscles, but that arnt stronger in anyway.

It because of diet, training, water weight, supplements ect.

and a body builders set up would be like
dumbell curls
15 reps 5 sets, 30 pounds.
while a strong man set up would be like
dumbell curls
6 reps 4 sets, 80 pounds

Repetition builds definition and size
weight builds strength.
User avatar #19305 to #19303 - nustix (10/18/2014) [-]
Ah I see, so with strength training I will actually train for strength results, which does not equal larger muscle mass. While body building training forms will result in the highest muscle mass but not necessarily in overall strength, but it will help me lose weigth.

There's just one thing that confuses me, if muscle mass does not equal strength what does? Do you just train different muscle groups when body building or does more mass not equal more muscle strength?

In my experience over the last 7 years of sport specific training and powerlifting I can say that there is not a single substitute for real food in terms of healthy effective calories like protein, carbs, and fat.

Hit 165 deadlift, thinking about doing more of them, but lighter just to help with technique throughout the week.
However, I took off the "bitchpads" for squat and my weights have gone down from hittign 120-140 to 100-110. Fucking awful, but needs to be done I guess. My aim of 150 is out the window
And my bench is now back at 90kg, so not bad. Only 10-20 more and I'll be happy
Can't seem to do OHP at all though, my back seems to arch too much. Even 50kg is too much for me, and I shoulderpress that sat down.

To look good, feel good, and to be strong.

I worked out for lots of reasons. I was in sports all my life so I've always been active. Started lifting because I was a skinny kid and wasn't happy about it. Now I've gained 50 pounds and I'm happy with myself. But recently I've joined the USAF Air Guard so I've also added in running, pushups, and sit ups to my routine to be able to pass standards. I'm hoping I'll be able to score a 100 on my test and exceed in training, not just get by.

So i was reading up on 5x5 workout and was thinking bout trying it but i have a question before i start. It says that you need to add 2.5 kg weight every workout. But how? the smallest plate is 2.5 kg. You can't just add 2.5 kg to an exercise.

For example if you're doing a 30 kg bench press and you do 5 sets of 5 reps. Next time you do that you have to add 2.5 kg which is 1 plate. So you just add it to 1 side of the barbell? Or does it mean add 2.5 kg to both sides of the barbell making it 5 kg heavier every workout?
User avatar #19279 to #19211 - the one and only (10/18/2014) [-]
You you been looking it up.

For most work outs I add 1.25 kg plates to the side, you're gym has absolutely none?

And for dead lifts just add 5 kg everytime you complete a set.
User avatar #19297 to #19279 - hsm (10/18/2014) [-]
yeah the smallest weights in my gym is 2.5 kg plate.
#19214 to #19211 - KungFuZerO (10/17/2014) [-]
It doesn't really matter to be honest. Its just saying move up in the smallest increment. If you don't have smaller weights, add 2.5kg plates to each side, and if you can't lift it, follow the instructions for failing a lift. Never add weight to just one side of a barbell.
User avatar #19213 to #19211 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
I have weights that go from 2.5lbs, to 5, then 10 then 25, 35, and 45. You may just have to buy those smaller weights. They'll be cheap. Usually a little under a dollar a pound.
User avatar #19212 to #19211 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
My smallest plates are 1.2 kg or 2.5 pounds. When I get a weight for 5 sets of 5 I'll move up 5 pounds the next week.
User avatar #19208 - auroloon ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
I was wondering for some time now. I'm 6 foot 8, I weigh 289 as of right now. What would the right weight be for someone like me? also if you're fat and you slim down will your face slim down as well?
User avatar #19217 to #19208 - chiktikkavaspaus ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
You'll definitely slim down in the face of you lose weight. I lost 100lbs and people hardly recognize me just based on the face alone.
User avatar #19209 to #19208 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Im 6'3 and my normal weight was around 150-170, so at your height I'd think a healthy weight would be anywhere from 180-200. And Your face will slim down some.
User avatar #19210 to #19209 - auroloon ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Thanks for the reply. I now have my goal weight in mind with that. I'll start working towards it today. Thanks again.
User avatar #19483 to #19210 - imadps (19 hours ago) [-]
200 at 6'8 is pretty low. My cousin is 6'3 at like 185-200 and he looks pretty skinny. I'm 215 at 6'2 and I'm just torso-fat (imo). I'd think that 210-230 with decent muscle mass would be good for your height.

Fat shaming FridayIf you're working to better yourself for past mistake though we love you more than you can imagine

Chairman for Fat Acceptance died an early death to heart complication due to excess weight

I'm pretty sure I saw this story on FJ so it's a flgrant repost but aw well. Fat acceptance shouldn't be accepting morbidly obese people any more than accepting 3 pack a day smokers. Fat acceptance should be for "It's perfectly fine to have 10 or 15 extra pounds hanging around. You don't need to look like a model"

"insulin made me fat"
lel..
my brothers girlfriend has pity serous diabetes, and she is a fucking catwalk model... i am not even joking, she had done a few jobs as a catwalker

most of diabetes comes from bad eating habits, witch makes you fat, not the other way around..
User avatar #19237 to #19206 - Sperit ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
also some people are born diabetic

"Most people are fat because of genetics" lol

You know, I heard once that it was better for you to be in shape but overweight instead of thin and not in shape, but those people take that to an extreme. There's no excuse to be morbidly obese like that
User avatar #19216 to #19202 - nefarian (10/17/2014) [-]
You probably won't be that fat if you're fit. Good muscle mass does a good job of burning fat.
User avatar #19175 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
I can't wait to workout, I'm over-pumped all the fucking time and I feel like I could do it 8 hours a day if I had breaks.
User avatar #19200 to #19175 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
How old are you, and what are your current lifts?

I'm just curious.
User avatar #19230 to #19200 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Man I'm only 17 and 2.5 months in.
User avatar #19235 to #19230 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Ah, that makes complete sense. Be prepared for glorious noob gainz.

Best advice you could get this early on, is just focus on improving bench squat and deadlift. If you're getting stronger on all of those, your physique will reflect that pleasantly.
User avatar #19236 to #19235 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
My only problem is I'm doing all of this at home + by myself
User avatar #19238 to #19236 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Oh, then focus on improving push-ups, chin-ups, and squats.

By yourself? Nah, you got the brahs on this board. The smartest thing you could do would be to ask these people lots of questions. I've been doing this for a while now, and Marinepenguin is pretty knowledgeable too.
User avatar #19245 to #19238 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Oh you.

Yeah lulzformalaysiaair you have this entire board to help you out bud.
User avatar #19240 to #19238 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Yeah but when I mean at home I mean lifting at home fyi.
And I've probably asked marinenigga like 100 questions by now. The only problem with doing by yourself is that no one can correct you or help with super heavy lifts so it is slightly dangerous but I don't give a squat.
User avatar #19262 to #19240 - studbeefpile ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
