Hi. This isn't really a weightloss question but I'm doing a project for school on MyFitnessPal and I need to find it's user count in 3 months and 1 year since its launch. Does anybody know where I can find this information? I've been looking for hours. And if possible, I'd like to be able to know the revenue from ads for ideally both or even just their percentage. I need to map out their growth. Thank you so much (:

Try sending them an email and explain what you're doing, they may like the exposure to people who don't know jack about fitness.

Whenever I perform any kind of shrug exercise, straight up, I just don't feel it.

When I carry heavy things around (such as a farmer walk) I definitely feel it in my shoulders and traps, but I want to learn to shrug, so I can hit the shoulders from that specific angle.

Same problem with barbell shrugs, I feel nothing with 315 except the barbell repeatedly hitting me in the cock and pulling down my shorts
User avatar #29890 to #29863 - marinepenguin (04/22/2015) [-]
Try high pulls or lawnmower pulls, those hit the traps way better then shrugs.

Go really light, and do a lot of reps, I'm talking like 30+. Reaaallly focus on squeezing at the top.

I want to become good at running. I usually run 2 miles at 7.5 mph at the gym, but the most I've ran was my regular plus an additional 2 miles at 6 mph. I don't know anything technical or any know how on how to git gud, can I get some tips?
User avatar #29960 to #29858 - ferrocordis ONLINE (04/23/2015) [-]
When I was losing weight, I ran... A lot. So, coming from personal experience, there's two types of running.... Endurance, which you seem to have, and speed training.

You want to get fast? Sonic.jpeg: sprints, your max speed, for 30 seconds - 2 mins jog for 2 more mins for cool down and repeat the sprint, repeat till failure.

You want endurance? #GetEmRock! : you seem to got that down, jog, jog forever, JOGSOMEMORE! throw up while jogging, keep jogging, jog, jog, jog until your feet fall off, jog until the morning, it's our jogging I'll jog if I want to jig like the jogging never stops baby jog jog jog.... When and IF you run out of breath, walk, but don't stop moving them legs, this isn't about time or anything, this is about distance, keeping going until you hit the distance you want...

Take for example, 1 mile, this is where I started out. It took me 16:50 the first time EVER getting to a mile. And, I slowly worked that down to 10 mins, then eventually 7, then 6. I then realized that this is ridiculous and I can now hit a Mile in 4:50...so, increased the distance... I went a Mike and a half in 13:30... Then 10 and so on and so on. That was the best, 10 min 1.50 miles.

The work out I would do for this is the Marine standard 1 Mile in 7mins or 1.50 in 13:30, so I would alternate between the two towards the end of my cardio "career."

Cardio, is not like weight lifting, no matter WHAT you do, you're going to improve in both fields, the longer you run, the faster you're going to get, regardless of sprinting, due to the leg muscles becoming stronger and the weight lose. It's just that if you sprint you'll gain speed quicker then endurance and if you focus on endurance, well, you'll gain that faster then speed.

Bonus: do a lot if leg work outs, this will also increase cardio.

Good luck, have fun and enjoy music while you run, defiantly without it I wouldn't of lost all the weight I did back then.

So I've been lurking this fitness board for a while and I've decided start losing weight. So far I've lost 22 pounds. My starting weight was 209 and my current weight is 187. I want to post a before and after picture cause this board was my inspiration, but I'm extremely self conscious. If it helps I'm a 16 year old girl 5'9".

User avatar #29844 to #29843 - fuzzybutt (04/21/2015) [-]
Keeping a decent pace at running, probably only 1 - 2 miles.

Walking, around 10 miles, from when I used to go to Cornwall regularly and there are things to actually see whilst walking other than people getting mugged.

I cycle a lot (I could probably average 10 miles a session) but recently I've stopped myself since apparently I'm doing far too much to try and build any muscle on top of that.

Because of it though I've never struggled with leg workouts like a lot of people do, which I guess is a positive.

God I hate having shitty workouts. Felt weak and tired, my normal routine quickly went into the shitter and I eventually quit halfway through.

Guess you cant be setting PRs every workout. It's better to listen to your body sometimes.

Well my last two bench days have felt fantastic. And even my back day yesterday felt good, even though I felt exhausted and hadn't gotten much sleep the past several days. I've felt extremely tired all day today and I'm stressed about my chemistry test tomorrow. So I think it's just a combination of short term issues and no mental focus.

REP QUALITY VS WEIGHT: Why Grinding Keeps You Weak

Extremely important information. I suggest every single one of you who is serious about lifting, watch this video.
User avatar #29822 to #29819 - marinepenguin (04/21/2015) [-]
More quality reps = more consistent gains and improved motor patterns. It's one reason why doing sets of 2-3 will improve overall strength a lot better then going for singles all the time.
User avatar #29823 to #29822 - studbeefpile (04/21/2015) [-]
Even 2-3 isn't really building any strength. At that point it's far more just training the nervous system than it is the muscle. Sets of 5-8 seems to be a good range for building both strength and size, and anything higher is just hypertrophy without strength training.

At this point, all of my main work sets are 5 reps or over (with the exception of pre-exhausted triples on bench, which I am a fan of), and then all of my accessories are 10 reps or more.

Honestly I really needed to see that video, because I grind on the reg....time to break that habit and start breaking PRs instead.
User avatar #29824 to #29823 - studbeefpile (04/21/2015) [-]
*when I say "isn't really building strength" I mean building new strength potential. It can - and definitely does refine strength.
User avatar #29826 to #29824 - marinepenguin (04/21/2015) [-]
Thats true, but reps of 2-3 under high load do still build muscle, just not nearly as much. So you could see continued strength gains doing that. 5 reps is usually considered the midway point between hypertrophy and strength gains, which is what I did for well over a year. Nearly all of my main sets were for 5-8 reps.
User avatar #29838 to #29826 - loomiss (04/21/2015) [-]
If I hit bench 4x5 but maybe grind last 1 or 2 reps on last set is it that bad?
User avatar #29828 to #29826 - studbeefpile (04/21/2015) [-]
They build muscle with super high frequency, like Bulgarian style training, but most people don't do that.
User avatar #29830 to #29828 - marinepenguin (04/21/2015) [-]
Well sure, It all depends on your training style, doing 2 or 3 heavy sets of 3 won't build much muscle, but doing 8-10 sets of 2-3 in the 85-90% range will build a ton of maximal strength along with a decent amount of muscle.
User avatar #29814 - fuzzybutt (04/20/2015) [-]
Out of curiosity, how much cardio do you estimate you do a day/week?

And do you mix it in with your main workout or do it on rest days (if at all)?

Turns out I've been doing way too much, over an hour almost daily. Sometimes 2 - 3 which has probably made the last 5 months of working out a lot less fruitful. Oh well, just gonna have to cut back from now..
User avatar #29856 to #29814 - nimba (04/21/2015) [-]
45-60min per week. I do cardio day seperate from my other training esp. legs but I've heard it said you can do as much cardio as you like immediately after strength sessions or later in the day but 'ain't got time for dat. I recently threw cardio day in just to rev my metabolism a bit because I was starting to get fat-strong when I'd rather be lean-strong.
2k cross training at mixed resistances, 3 sets of HIIT on the treadmill and 5k vertical bike at mixed resistances. It's mostly med-high aerobic stuff but on the fast sets on the treadmill it goes anaerobic for a couple minutes at a time. HR usually about 85% (170bpm) of estimated max but it creeps up to 90% (180bpm) at the anaerobic stages.
User avatar #29857 to #29856 - fuzzybutt (04/21/2015) [-]
It's what I'm scared of, I want to be strong, but I still want to be fairly agile aswell. It's why I do bodyweight routines since it seemed like it'd apply to me more, but I just need to run and cycle less even if I do find it fun.

User avatar #29821 to #29814 - marinepenguin (04/21/2015) [-]
I go on ~3/4 of a mile runs every other day. So maybe 20 minutes of cardio a week.
User avatar #29839 to #29821 - loomiss (04/21/2015) [-]
I do 1 mile, never more, but I do up the pace 3 times a week. I want a 6 minute mile eventually. currently stuck around 7:00-7:30
User avatar #29846 to #29839 - marinepenguin (04/21/2015) [-]
Its probably just Mental block, I used to have it all the time. Just go balls to the wall on one of those runs and break 7 minutes.

Either do that or find someone to run with who runs below a 7 minute mile and try to keep up with them.
User avatar #29865 to #29846 - loomiss (04/21/2015) [-]
I did have one mile time of 6:50 when I ran with my hockey player friend, made sure to keep up with him
User avatar #29889 to #29865 - marinepenguin (04/22/2015) [-]
It's a lot easier to run with people slightly faster, you just keep up instinctively.

Or just keep a watch on you and watch the time, easier to beat certain times like that too.

guys pls hepl, my left knee hurts when doing even really lightweight squats

i think it's because i start to lean on my toe when pushing up, i notcied when squatting without the bar that my right hip goes down further than my left

how do i fix this? thanks
User avatar #29813 to #29802 - Draigor (04/20/2015) [-]
Always push through your heels and push your knees "out", so you don't lean forward. Forward lean may also be a sign of weak quads.
If you're hips are so unaligned, you need to work on your mobility/flexibility. Defrancos Limber 11 is a good warmup for that. www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSSDLDhbacc

Pro-Tip, try to go lift with one of your female friends every so often. Guaranteed PR every time.

And when you're not lifting with chicks, at least try to pretend they're watching.

But yes, cheep, tuna salmon and tilapia are the big three. Just remember, the price you pay is the quality you get. And you're putting this stuff INSIDE YOU I don't know about you, but for me, that's a HUGE issue for me.

Well the point in having physique goals is to give yourself something else to strive for.

I suppose. I legitimately have literally no tangible physique goals though. Right now I'm cutting weight, but I don't care about having a 6 pack or anything.

I only really got serious about my training around my birthday in November, doing proper form workouts, decent diet, and isolation splits

That's still massively huge for that size. At 0% bf you'd still outweigh me by 50 pounds, yet you're only 1.5 inches taller then me.

So either the body fat test was way off, or you have a massive amount of muscle mass with only a short period of weight training which, even with great genetics, 255 pounds of lean muscle is a fucking LOT .

I mean my Great-grandfather from Austria-Hungary was, I shit you not, 7'2. My mom is REALLY fucking fat, but her readings were the same as mine, slightly elevated She was in ok shape like 10 years ago I remember but she fucked her knee hard chasing a guy who stole her purse . I fucked up my Pectoral in December and got a scan done on it, all my fat is Visceral fat apparently Fat that just sits on top of everything instead of invading your organs. So literally at the skin. Meaning I will never look good unless 0% because there will always be a layer of fat right below skin

I mean I pick up muscle/fat incredibly easily, and lose it at the same rate. I worked out with a bodybuilder friend of mine yesterday doing some cardio work for about an hour Prowler sled 140lbs on concrete which FUCKING SUCKS BECAUSE IT KEEPS GETTING STUCK, small drag sled doing the thing where you step and do a tricep extension sorta deal at 95lbs, then reverse flies with the same weight walking back on the sled, parachute sprints 75ft and back, then sled drags, then a lot of core work. Yes I paid for a training session because I have no clue what I'm doing as clearly pointed out here . Weighed myself at the beginning at 324. Did it again at the end and was 310. Went home, had chicken cutlets and Riceroni for dinner, and now today. possible gene freak? World Strongman chance? Because that's the dream right now

I mean if you are truly that large in size, and you fairly new to training yet are as strong as you are, you have a ton of strength potential to build off of.

So as for being a strongman, you have an excellent base for it. Whether you could be world class, I can't say, but you definitely have superb genetics if what you've told me isn't either a lie or you've gotten incorrect results.

Regardless, keep training and getting stronger, you could have a lot of potential to be a literal man among men.

Also your lower body seems to be lagging behind pretty bad.

User avatar #29760 to #29759 - studbeefpile (04/19/2015) [-]
Impressive! You've matched my record. What's your bench at right now?
User avatar #29761 to #29760 - Draigor (04/19/2015) [-]
Last time I maxed out it was 265 (not even paused fuck me).
Starting this cycle with paused bench for main sets tho
User avatar #29771 to #29761 - studbeefpile (04/20/2015) [-]
Nice, that sounds about right.

Pause bench will get your bench up quick, mayne. Look forward to those gainz.
User avatar #29775 to #29771 - Draigor (04/20/2015) [-]

How'd the deads go?
User avatar #29776 to #29775 - studbeefpile (04/20/2015) [-]
Ehh, only got 7. Gonna lower the weight and up the volume next workout. Probably gonna try to hit 315 for 2x10.
User avatar #29779 to #29776 - Draigor (04/20/2015) [-]
That's still awesome. You'll hit it for 8 next time, no doubt.

I'm shooting for 330 x8-9 tomorrow
User avatar #29783 to #29779 - studbeefpile (04/20/2015) [-]
Nice dude! My record for 335 is 20, but half of those were touch'n'go reps, and not true dead stop.

Make it happen captain.
User avatar #29811 to #29783 - Draigor (04/20/2015) [-]
got 330 for 9 (dead stop)
User avatar #29816 to #29811 - studbeefpile (04/20/2015) [-]
Nice!

Now I have to try to beat you!
User avatar #29785 to #29783 - Draigor (04/20/2015) [-]
Duuuude, if I did t&g reps at my college gym, the asshole who's in charge of it would shit a brick and kick me out. I've gotta tread the fine line....I'll try my best lol

On deadlift
User avatar #29757 to #29752 - marinepenguin (04/19/2015) [-]
I mean, you can live without those lifts. Hes not wrong. Is it a good idea to leave all those out? Not for most people.
#29789 to #29757 - jvcjvc (04/20/2015) [-]
it was more about, some of the point there was made, forgive me if i understand wrong:

"However, if you’re a deadlifter for life, he recommends doing them inside of a power rack to reduce the chance of injury. “That’ll lessen the risk by about 80 percent.”"

"consider subbing Hammer Strength machine presses for barbell presses. “They simulate the movement more effectively than a flat bench press,” he added."
