Can't tell if my body's getting stronger from farmers walks or if I'm just getting faster.

Three days of the week.

Also front squats back to back with deadlifts = suicide.

So yeah, basic question.
I need a work out/nutrition schedule, where's the best place to find info about all this? because every site claims something else and I really have no idea what to believe.
User avatar #17203 to #17199 - unncommon (08/24/2014) [-]
1. What's your goals
2. Do you even lift?
3. What do you have available
#17222 to #17203 - masarua (08/25/2014) [-]
Building muscle ofc. I want to be that asshole that's confident of his body
2. No not atm, but I don't need to get /that/ bulky
3. Not sure what you mean with availability
User avatar #17224 to #17222 - unncommon (08/25/2014) [-]
Well start off with either Strong Lifts or Starting Strength.
I'd recommend Strong Lifts 5x5 because it has an app.

How do I do them correctly? Do you have a video or instruction about it?

The lifts? They're pretty simple but if you're having any difficulty try YouTube or reading about it.

Hey, what have you guys found as a good way to cut stomach fat.
I'm in pretty good shape and have a good amount of muscle, I just want to tone down my core and work on my abs.
Like did anyone get any success out of P90x or Insanity?
I don't really want to lose weight per se. Its just when im not activley flexing my abs, there's not much definition.
Everywhere else im pretty cut, but i have never found an ab workout that has yielded consistent results.
Any thoughts?
#17229 to #17194 - hottamaleez ONLINE (08/26/2014) [-]
yeah, stop being fat
i.e go on a cut you lard

You can't lose fat in one spot, you have to lose fat everywhere.
User avatar #17191 - derpityhurr (08/23/2014) [-]
Is it a good idea to start "bulking" during the winter months and then cut around next march?
User avatar #17196 to #17191 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/24/2014) [-]
It's easier if instead of bulking and gaining a ton of fat along with the muscle, eat just over what your body needs. If you eat enough to sustain muscle gains, but not too much to where you gain a couple pounds of fat for every pound of muscle, then you should almost never have to cut.

Guys, quick question, I ahve actually started weighing myself more frequently, and I noticed I am actually losing weight, A LOT. I made a post awhile back when I was ~224 and now I am 216. I dont really remember how long ago I made the post, but either way, I have lost weight. But for some reason my stomach doesnt look any smaller than it did before, if anything it looks bigger. Some days I look thin, some days I look fat. This might be all in my head, but I am not actually seeing a difference. I am seeing it on the scale, but not in the mirror. I have started doing ab workouts, and cut my calories this past week and a half, and thats the first time I did that in awhile, so I think I need to just be patient. I am proud of myself, but when I look in the mirror I lose my confidence. I don't lose the drive to workout, I just don't feel confident. My question is, why am I not seeing the difference in the mirror?
User avatar #17190 to #17183 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/23/2014) [-]
You never lose or gain weight in a linear fashion. There will be weeks you lose 10 pounds, and then you'll struggle to lose a couple pounds in one month. Gains and losses come and go. You also have to take into account how much water you in your system. I've weighed a whole ten pounds less after being dehydrated before.

I drink 1 gallon a day. My main issue was I'm losing weight but looking fatter.
User avatar #17185 to #17183 - derpityhurr (08/23/2014) [-]
Maybe youre losing muscle, or maybe youre just losing fat thats not visible or are just looking at the wrong areas
stomach fat is usually the last area to lose fat
User avatar #17186 to #17185 - donnybergerstory (08/23/2014) [-]
I thought a possibility could be that I have started abs, yet don't always do cardio, so I am just building muscle under my belly fat and it's like... pushing the fat?
User avatar #17187 to #17186 - derpityhurr (08/23/2014) [-]
Its true that if you build muscle while having fat on top of it youll look even bigger cus of the muscle, but built muscles are actually denser than weak muscles so you wouldve gained weight
User avatar #17188 to #17187 - donnybergerstory (08/23/2014) [-]
I think for a whole week striahgt I am just gonna do a lot of cardio, and try to actually do fat burning exercises and see if anything happens.

I'm a 5'7'', 76kg guy with practically zero muscle mass and no workout/sports schedule but I have decided to change.
I decided to start with stamina, so basically I'm gonna start running. Can you guys suggest some good exercise/workouts that focus on stamina for a total beginner like me? Also, how much can you guys run at medium pace without getting out of breath?
User avatar #17184 to #17178 - ablueguy (08/23/2014) [-]
Yeah, it would be better to focus on strength training first.
Also, what sort of food do you normally eat?

As for you question, I can run about 3.5-4k at a steady, kind of slow pace, before I start to lose my breath, but I don't really focus on cardio. Sprinting, I can lose my breathe in 200m
User avatar #17181 to #17178 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/23/2014) [-]
If you have no muscle mass, I'd focus on that first. Endurance is something that can be built and lost relatively quickly (a few weeks), while gaining muscle mass takes a lot of time.
User avatar #17179 to #17178 - derpityhurr (08/23/2014) [-]
I think people recommend interval training, where you do something intense for like 30 seconds, then rest for 30 and repeat. You can do sprints like this

User avatar #17182 to #17174 - lolpandas (08/23/2014) [-]
Muscle memory is going to be your friend. Eat at maintenance or just over so you don't lose the weight. You can't really take anything (legally) that will slow down muscle loss that isn't already covered by basic nutrition.

My brother had his hand broken just recently and he couldn't use it to lift for about that same amount of time. He lost maybe 10 pounds, but he's gained it back in like 2 weeks.

But if I were you, I'd use this time to focus on legs.

Just came back from the doctor, and I was told my bones aren't fused yet.    
Currently 19, 5'11", I want to stretch that last bit of growth and possibly hit the 6'0" mark.   
Any suggestions on what should be done to help improve and milk out the last bit of growth?

Get plenty of sleep, Vitamin D, Calcium and proteins.

Emphasis on the sleep, and keep lifting.

Went from 5'10" at 19 to 6'1" by 23-24.
Progress may seem slow, but it'll come, and it seems like you're a late bloomer.

exactly what should i do to become a skinny fuck

i do a bit of walking
and i've eaten like 5 times in the last two weeks

Don't starve yourself.
MyFitnessPal is a great app for counting calories.
It can search up a lot of food items, by brand and all that.
First find what your recommended calorie intake per day is
Mine is 2470

Then just add what you eat to your Diary on MyFitnessPal
It's 7pm here and I have a 200 calorie deficit for today.

Just go running for at least 30 minutes. if you wanna get skinny af then go running more than 3 days a week.

Muscle workouts barely cut down fat. But yeah keep doing them because excessive cardio starts to cut down muscle tissue too. So I would do light leg workouts. Goblin squats (Google it), all that shit.

count the calories of your normal diet and then reduce it by a few hundred, and replace your exercises with cardio exercises

I'm 15 years old and stand 5'7'' and I'm constantly heading to the park to do push ups and pull ups in order to build my chest/back/biceps. But I'm also concerned about the risk of these calisthenic exercises slowing or even stopping my growth rate.

I'm basically asking if doing pull ups/push ups will stop my growth rate because I prioritize my height over having a toned body.

Working out with weights has never been proven to stunt your growth, if anything it helps promote bone growth. The only way you can stunt growth in a bone is to damage the growth plate, and controlled compression forces that come from lifting weights won't do that.

Working out with just your body weight will make it tough, and you'll have to get super creative, if you want to get big.
User avatar #17160 to #17154 - lolpandas (08/22/2014) [-]
It won't close your growth plates. Weights won't either if done properly. I'd be willing to argue it might help with growth because of the release of hgh, igf, and increased bone mineral density.
User avatar #17158 to #17154 - unncommon (08/22/2014) [-]
I don't particularly want to see a naked picture of a 15 year old, whether I'm on fitness or not. Especially when the picture doesn't reveal much about their physique.
But if you're asking if getting big with body weight is possible, it's very possible. Plyrometrics, slow reps, advanced reps, eating big, that's what it comes down to.
User avatar #17156 to #17154 - fac (08/22/2014) [-]
as long as they're body-weight exercises no

Never even been in a gym before
Want to avoid embarrassing myself
What do?
User avatar #17189 to #17151 - donnybergerstory (08/23/2014) [-]
People at the gym aren't mean, or rude. They are actually pretty cool. Just don't act cocky, clean up after yourself and wipe your shit down with wipes if they have them. Usually gyms have trainers, so if you really don't know what to do, ask for a trainer.

If you want a workout plan or instructions, visit www.bodybuilding.com/fun/bbmaintrain.htm

That site has instructions for workouts. My current workout plan is:
Monday- Arms + Cardio
Tuesday- Chest & Abs
Wednesday- Shoulders +Cardio
Thursday- Back + Cardio
Friday- Legs + Cardio
I also workout on Saturday and Sunday, but I just repeat those workouts. I don't have a 7 day plan.
Pick what muscles you want to workout, for instance, if I wanna workout my triceps, I would google "tricep workouts". Then follow the instructions given.
Before you do anything though, get to know your gym. Know where the free weights are, where the machines are, and don't be afraid/ intimidated. Put your headphones in, blast your music and get in YOUR zone, fuck everything else. You aren't working out for the bigger guys in the gym, your doing it for you. So don't be afraid to use light weights at first.

Best of luck, bro.
User avatar #17157 to #17151 - fac (08/22/2014) [-]
best idea is to go with a friend or someone who knows

they'll teach you what to do, this is if you're too embarrassed to ask people
User avatar #17153 to #17151 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
Oh and also, if you are genuinely stumped on how to do something, ask one of the more experienced looking dudes. It's a good way to gain some knowledge, get introduced to the people at the gym, and start making some friends.
User avatar #17152 to #17151 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
People aren't there to judge you, they probably won't even notice you or pay a lot of attention. Just go in there, work hard, and for christs sake don't be curling in some dudes squat rack.

After running 5/3/1 for 3 months and actually seeing all my lifts go down, I decided to move back towards a routine that has a lot more frequency and intensity in it. I'll go 4 days in a row and take one day off. Started off today with Chest and Tris, went kind of like this.
Bench 5x5
Tricep pushdowns 5x8
Cable fly's 5x8
Close grip bench 5x8.

Tomorrow is back and bi's, I'll be adding in olympic lifts on this day. Wide grip snatch pull and the power clean.
Then Legs
Then finally shoulders, they're my weakest body part (I'd like to be able to overhead press my weight, instead of 135, plus I don't want to have so many pressing movements in one day on chest and tricep day. Wanna keep my shoulders healthy.)

My only question is where could I fit in deadlifts? I would rather not leave them out completely(I normally do it on back day), but when I do them the day before I squat I feel super weak on legs.
User avatar #17163 to #17146 - lolpandas (08/22/2014) [-]
You could do it every other week on back day and just deal with it on leg day. My 4 day routine is back/bi - chest/tri - legs - shoulders. Gives me a days rest between deadlift and squats plus a day between tricep work and ohp.
User avatar #17167 to #17163 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/22/2014) [-]
I'll probably just switch the back/bi with chest/tri. So I can do them both without messing with each other. Can't believe I didn't think of that at first.
User avatar #17159 to #17146 - unncommon (08/22/2014) [-]
I usually do mine on pull day and leg day. But Idunno bud, try tossing it in on a day that doesn't have as much exercises.

Sit down
back straight
legs like -\ (pretend that's ya knee m8)
Take a medicine ball, or just a weight that you feel comfortable. could use a dumbbell, even a heavy speaker I guess.
And do twists with it.
like, handle the ball from side to side. I think you know what I mean.

Do as many reps as you want and as many sets as you want

Running and gradually lowering your caloric intake are always good approaches to losing weight.
User avatar #17139 to #17133 - lolpandas (08/21/2014) [-]
The general guideline is about 1/2lb a week (not counting water weight), and that's by burning/consuming 300ish calories under maintenance a day. You could easily do more than 1/2lb a week but I wouldn't push it to more than 1lb at your weight. That being said, it will still be a while before you can realistically achieve your goal. You could always choose your least favorite limb and "accidentally" chop it off.
User avatar #17143 to #17139 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
Many people don't seem to realize that unless you are in extreme conditions of either malnourishment or obesity that gains and losses aren't going to be instantaneous. It's a process, and it's going to take some work.
User avatar #17137 to #17133 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/21/2014) [-]
Fastest way to do it is to lower your calorie intake to a few hundred below what you need, while also ramping up your metabolism as much as possible by doing a fat loss workout routine. Lifts 3 days a week ever other day doing big compound movements (squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press), then on days you don't lift weights you should do some HIIT (High intensity interval training), basically sprint or do some super fast activity for 30 seconds, then rest 30 seconds and do it again for about 6-8 repetitions. If you are a girl (I'm assuming you are, few guys want to weigh 120lbs), I wouldn't want to weight a certain amount, you could weight 120 pounds and look terrible if you lose muscle instead of fat. If you do what I just told you you will not only lose 99% fat, but you'll look great and probably will weigh around 135-140. If you do this right it may take a couple months. Anything faster then that you risk losing muscle, killing your metabolism, and gaining all the weight back and more, looking worse then you started.

It'll be much more difficult to retain muscle mass, but you could. Lots of pushups, pullups, sprints, and core work.

Hey I'm trying to get down to 160, a healthy weight for my height, and I was wondering how I would go about it. I'm at 214 now, lost the 6-ish pounds by cutting out a lot of junk food and soda, and I've taken to 5 reps of 10 pushups and 5 reps of 10 situps. Is this enough? And if so, how long before I notice some bigger change?

See how many calories your body needs a day with a calculator on the internet. Then make sure you eat a few hundred calories below that. Combine that with some kind of physical activity like walking, working out, playing basketball, etc and you'll lose about a pound or two a week.
