So I have an overactive thyroid and eat a ton of shit food and still can't gain weight. Also have epilepsy meds that has a chance to induce weight gain, have only been on it for about a month, but doesn't seem to affect my weight either. Should I try protein powder since I'm a skinny bastard and hope the leftover protein turns to fat?

Most likely you're just really underestimating your calorie intake. Actually count calories for a while and try to stick around 3000-3200.

It varies. I'm guestimating here without actually counting. I'll say I eat 2200 to 2700 lately. Sometimes maybe higher cause I eat a shit ton of fast food. Before I ate ramen for meals so id say I got under 1800 calories. But after some urine tests I had some protein in my urine, meaning some of it is getting dumped by my thyroid. So at a height of 6ft, 166-170 is my resting weight. I'll probably just try being more of a fatty and focus on dairy products. See if it works out.

I'll put it this way:
Say you're doing a 3 day split
Monday - Push
Tuesday - Pull
Wednesday - Legs
If you're doing double simulation training then 24-36 hours after working one muscle group you're going to lightly hit them again for a "pump". E.g.:
Monday - Push
Tuesday - Light push work, primary workout is pull
Wednesday - Light pull work, primary workout is Legs
Thursday - Light leg work
Now when you're working these muscles over again you'll only do about 3 sets and 10 reps or so of each muscle group and you'll be keeping it under 20 minutes. So light push workout would look something like:
Cable Fly - 3x10 (Pecs)
Tricep Pull Down - 3x10 (Tris)
Lateral Dumbbell Raise - 3x10 (Delts)

As a kid I was always chubby. Not fat, but I did come to a point where I basically had manboobs as a kid. Then comes middle and high school and I shed the weight and start getting in shape. Even after not having a gym class for the last 2 years of high school I kept my thin shape/structure. Then in the past year I started to notice some of my clothes weren't fitting around my legs the way they should. And now it's to the point where the jeans I had worn for years (my growth is stopping) I can't even get into comfortably or fit neatly in.

I have been reminded that metabolism doesn't last forever, and maybe it's starting to go. Once I realized how awful I felt for having manboobs again and thighs the size of my hand spread out it hit me. I don't want to be like this, I want to go back, to when I was decent looking.

I have started to eat more fruits and salads recently, but I know that's gonna do jack shit for me at the moment. What I'm asking for is some guidance on how to get back to where I used to be. And possibly doing more. I attend school and have a job, so going to the gym isn't ideal but a consideration. Anyway, I hope to hear from anyone who knows their stuff.

I have a friend who's into health and fitness so I'll ask him too, but I wanted to post here too because I know a lot of you are intelligent and I trust you guys.

What advice I give anyone who doesn't really want to go to the gym (or doesn't have time to, altho my opinion is that you have to make time for it), is to walk an hour before breakfast. I say before breakfast because otherwise your body is busy with digesting the food and not with burning fat. After the walking eat something protein rich. If you do just that and start eating right, you'll see changes pretty quickly

Oh fuck

Ok ok.. lets see with what we can work with. You pretty much fucked yourself up brah. No worries, it is an easy fix, but itll take some time.

You look like a NEET, so lets change that. Lets start shaving first so you dont end up like a neckbeard brony lover. Switch to contacts would also be preferable, or at least get thicker frame glasses. Rather you be a hipster than a virgin-reaked neckbeard, know what im saying?

Now about the body; very simple. Change your diet. It isnt the physical exercise (although it helps), it is the diet that makes or breaks you. Get rid of all foods. Just eliminate everything in your house. I will make a list of the stuff you should only buy.
1. skim milk (protein)
2. fat free cottage cheese (protein)
3. oatmeal (carbs)
4. grits (carbs)
5. eggs (protein + cholesterol)

That is it. Get some multivitamin gummies too, because you'll need vitamins. Infact, you should be at a very low carb intake. If you are going to start working out (which i doubt), you might wanna intake a high amount of protein.

First off you have to know that pretty much no one knows what the fuck they are talking about here or on most boards. So take every bit of advice with a grain of salt.

Second even if they do kinda know what they are talking about they don't know your body or how what works with what.

Third, the amount of effort required to lift properly is probably more then you want to commit right now if you have a Job and have to go to school. So its best to stick to dieting on that alone.


On that I got two options for you.

Option 1. Stick to your roots. Eat healthy, try your hardest. Maybe in 6 months you'll be down a decent amount.

Option 2. Look into an ECA stack (ephedrine caffine aspirin) make sure you read up on it A LOT before you take it, you don't want to just take it because some asshat on the internet said so. If you do decide to take it, It helped me go from 205 to 165 in 2 months about (can post progress pics). I'd imagine it could help you lose a lot of weight while keeping you focused on school work and your job.

It's really hard for me to pay attention while reading books, so my apologies for just now responding I've been reading since yesterday. But all joking aside you need to cut carbs and junk, start drinking water instead of sodas and don't over eat, no midnight snacks or food just before bed. If you can get your diet straight then you'll be set. Being active such as lifting weights or doing cardio is going to help out a lot.

Heyho everyone.

Sooo... my 91239478126th time of tackling my weight issue. I know that counting calories is the best way to go and everything, but as a motivation, I need somewhat of a boost (also, I've gotten super wobbly and am essentially disgusted my reflection in the mirror, so yeah, gg).

About me: I'm about 1,77m and weigh 141kg, have had surgery in January and recuperation was done like 3 months or so ago (so I basically spent 6 months in bed)

Anyway, I have started a "coached" program called "Programm 21" (yeah, it's in German, who cares). It is, essentially, a low carb diet with HIIT exercises.
I don't really have much trouble with the low carb stuff. I just compensate by eating a shitton of veggies (like a whole head of Broccoli for dinner), meat and beans/lentils. I can deal with that, doesn't bother me that much.
The program consists of 21 days following a certain pattern: day 1: program 1, day 2: program 2, day 3: free exercise (like cycling or swimming or shit), day 4: program 3, day 5: program 4, day 6 and day 7: recovery or program 1 + 2 (depending on the intensity you picked. I picked the minimal plan, since I haven't exercised in over a year and I kinda felt like exercising 4 - 5x/week should be somewhat sufficient).
However, I am REALLY struggling with the work outs. Apparently, they're... egh... exercises with own body weight (I forgot the name, sorry ._. ) and consist of 3 rounds, while 1 round consists of 3 - 4 work outs (30 sec w/o, 30 sec rest inbetween).
Thing is, I only manage 1 or 2 repetitions before I grow absolutely tired (like, I barely feel my arms atm, they're still tingling). Should I first drop some weight before I start exercising or should I exercise for as long as I can, with as many repetitions as possible?

Help much appreciated, I might not reply asap as I'm headed for bed (gotta work tomorrow and then write my papers for college and shit).
Also, feel free to give me shit for being a land whale, I'd appreciate some butt kicking.

You should be using oly shoes and trying to to go deeper. Doing some mobility and lowering the weight may help. Besides that, form was decent.

Studbeefpile in your experience with higher rep deadlifts, how does your 10ish rep max compare to your 5 RM vs 1 RM ect. I'm aiming for 275x 15 dead stop after squats before trying to peak up to new rep maxes. Anyone else who does high rep deadlift work feel free to chime in, just don't know if anyone else does this crazy shit too often.

Depends on about a million different things.

High rep deads will for sure build up your strength, however you shouldn't expect to go straight from high reps right into a new 1rm. What I suggest is gradually increasing weight as you decrease reps, naturally peaking yourself up to new 5RMs, 3RMs, etc.

For example, if your 10rm is 275 and you increase it to 315, will your new 5rm see a similar increase, or do you reach the point of diminishing returns quickly?

It all depends on what your body is adapted to at the time. If you've been doing sets of 10 for a while, 5s and 3s will need some getting used-to. Conversely, if you've been doing a lot of 5s and 3s, doing sets of 10 will take some getting used-to.

With that understood, if we assume CNS temperament is ideal, there will be a great carryover of strength from sets of 10-20, to 5s, 3s, and even 1RMs. In fact, I would say that sets of 10 do a better job of building (specifically building, not refining) strength than sets of 3 or 5 do.

Sure they build mass, but you also stated that strength is a skill. I think that doing high reps for short durations are beneficial, but will not be enough to keep your max high if you're not doing heavier work. They may also limit your volume since you have to tap into more energy reserves than pulling a couple of heavy triples. In short, theyre great in moderation, but conventional methods should probably be used more often.

I was asking your opinion based on experience. This is my first go at high rep deads and I'm going based on how the weight feels compared to 20 rep squats. My wording is fucky in that last post so it looks like I'm trying to argue about what you said, more than stating that I think it's a great training method in shorter 12ish week blocks but not for much longer or you risk frying yourself.

To keep my motivation for lifting, personally I just imagine that one girl that I like and then i go bonkers. If you have no girl in mind, then being physically strong just helps with overall confidence. In order to find your motivation, ask yourself what YOU WANT out of it. if it's better chances with babes, then there it is. If it is for a boost in self confidence, then there you go.

The solution is doing DeFranco's agile 8 or limber 11 lower body mobility drills. They're designed for athletes to warm up before any kind of strength work or practices. Add some upper body stretching on your rest days and you're set. if you don't have a foam roller, invest in a decent one with a PVC pipe core. They're 15 bucks and last forever

AFTER!!!
Warming up before is a must. But DON'T stretch!
I know why but couldn't really explain it well so I got this from a website that explains what I mean:
Stretching before exercise may actually increase your risk of injury. That's not just because it undermines your warm up. "Traditional stretches, like when people bend over to touch their toes or stretch their legs on a fence," wrote Cheng, "often cause the muscles to tighten rather than relax—exactly the opposite of what is needed for physical activity." Your risk of overstretching at this time is greater, and this tightness can undermine your speed and range of motion when you start exercising. Some research has shown that certain athletes who stretch are more susceptible to injuries and performance problems. Experts theorize that a certain amount of "tightness" is needed for muscle strength and power in certain sports, such as throwing a fastball or kicking a soccer ball.

Tbh with about 15 seasons of full contact sports and like 6 years in the gym; not strong before working out definitely puts you in a bad spot. But I can also see how stretching improperly could tighten you up.

I love when you're preparing for a set and something just clicks, turning the next 30 seconds into a euphoric feeling like nothing else. It's not like setting a pr, it's not like getting a promotion, it's not like sex. It's just inner peace. This must be what Tibetan monks train for.

It really depends. Usually 2ish cups of coffee and a pre workout with a decent amount of caffeine. I think the worst I've done (that I remember doing) is 2 monsters, a cup of coffee and a 5 hour energy. that's over the course of probably 10-12 hours and not all at once. I'd drink some at work and some pre workout

Haven't been able to lift for a week. Been hitting me really hard, its prob gana get a little gay and personal.

About a week ago (while takeing a shit, not even lifting) I felt a tearing in my abs and instantly knew what it was. Saw where it was, and saw where my organs were and knew right away I had umbilical hernia. I already knew a bit about hernias (I mean you got to if you like lifting) just didn't think I'd ever get one. Went to the doctors, they confirmed it, saw the ultrasound, now I'm scheduling a surgery that is prob going to take 6+ weeks to recover from. The docs say I shouldn't do ANY lifting. And all in all it really REALLY fuckin sucks for me.

I took a year off after highschool to persue this bodybuilding goal (or rather dream now) just to see if I could do it. Now I'm going to be out of lifting for the next 2 months. Not just the next 2 months but the most IMPORTANT 2 bulking months I could have had an injury on. these next 2 months is when I was supposed to start my tren/dbol/test cycle and push myself to the max to gain over 40lbs as fast as possible before I cut for a show.

Now I'm fucked. I can't compete in the show i wanted, I can't workout. I can't even do ANYTHING for the next 2 fucking months. I just get to sit here and stare at a wall. I can't even get a job because when I stand up I have to hold my intestines inside myself. My parents already thought I was a lazy piece of shit because I didn't want to get a job so I could focus 100% effort on this, and I was waiting a year before I go to college. Now I actually AM a lazy piece of shit, I don't even have the excuse that I was lifting, because I can't.

As if it couldn't get any fuckin worse too my gear, needles, and alchoal wipes all showed up on the exact same day to my door ready and waiting. So I now I get to just stare at those too while I fucking sit here with a thumb up my ass.

I'm not giving up because that just not who I am, I'm still going to give it my absolute all (even more so now) but now I have about a 1% chance of even placing top 5 in local leagues, let alone winning anything. Guess this is my karma for being a shit posting faggot.

I'd say keep taking the test even while you're resting for those 6 weeks as it will help maintain your muscle mass and maybe even build more as long as you're eating enough. Studies have shown that people can build more muscle while on gear without even working out, compared to a natural lifter who is working out, providing you keep your diet in track.

Sit down and listen son, you're going to learn today.

This past February I started working a fucking terrible construction job, an additional part time job, and met clients, AND built the foundation for the success of my marriage. All the while, my strength went to shit, and I got EVEN FATTER (if you could believe such a thing). I pathetically attempted to train, but there was simply nothing left my body could give. Luckily, my financial options opened up in May, I left the construction job, got back into training, and came back BY AUGUST to smash the state record in my PL fed.

We all face setbacks.

Except you're goals are tiny compared to what mine where.

I never expected to go pro, but I was hoping to atleast have a CHANCE at being sponsored or potentially market myself in a way to make a sort of income off of lifting.

You're last quote is great and all. But it doesn't change the fact that if I don't attempt to do SOMETHING even if it is minor, I just get to sit around for 2 months and waste away, and I spent a year of my life doing nothing.

What's that? You've never competed? You've never worked a full time job? You never learned the difference between "You're" and "Your"?

I've accomplished significantly more through my "tiny" goals, than you EVER will if you keep up this whiny bitch attitude.

Tiny my ass. You don't know anything about hard work, jackass. You think you can just hop on roids, do a few curls, and get sponsored? Dream on, kid. You are a delusional, lazy, impatient, leach on society. And you're right. You have wasted your time. Time you could've spent working AT LEAST A PART TIME JOB and saving a little money, or something dude. Even after I quit construction I was still working a lot of hours with my various jobs, and I still trained, peaked, cut weight, and broke recods while STILL DOING MY JOBS! Shocking, I know. It's almost like most people train, and work a job....but that's too much for poor wittle awex.

I'll take my "tiny goals" that made me a local record holder, professional musician, personal trainer, etc. over your foolhardy aspirations, any day.

And by the way, you could spend these two months studying you damn eyes out about training, nutrition, hernia recovery, etc. Dumbass.

I'm real glad you think you're shit goals that no one knows about are impressive. Good for you.

You worked all these jobs, couldn't find any time for lifting and guess what you got to beat some LOCAL records! Wow. What an amazing story. So you're telling me if I work some jobs that have nothing to do with my goals and I still half ass train then I TOO can be a fat loser who spends his day on FJ talking down to kids with dreams?

Say what you will about my accomplishments, I'm a lot further along in life than you are, kid. The fact that you don't understand why it's a good idea to work and save money makes you even more of a dumbass than I previously thought, which proves that truly anything is possible.
