User avatar #21175 to #21173 - marinepenguin (11/23/2014) [-]
You aren't wrong.. but DNP can kill a person if taken wrong and for too long.
User avatar #21192 to #21175 - leal (11/23/2014) [-]
He asked the fastest way.
It is.
User avatar #21193 to #21192 - marinepenguin (11/23/2014) [-]
I literally said that you weren't wrong.
User avatar #21194 to #21193 - leal (11/23/2014) [-]
So what's your problem?
User avatar #21195 to #21194 - marinepenguin (11/23/2014) [-]
Maybe give him advice without being a smartass. I could tell him he could lose weight by cutting him arm off at the shoulder but that'd be just about as helpful in this case.
User avatar #21196 to #21195 - leal (11/23/2014) [-]
I was simply answering his question.
What your deal man? I wasn't trying to be a smart ass or anything.
User avatar #21202 to #21196 - donnybergerstory (11/24/2014) [-]
I didn't see the comment, but from what I have heard, you were giving this man harmful advice, I mean it IS advise but its advise that'll kill him, which is what Marinepenguin was implying.
User avatar #21210 to #21202 - leal (11/24/2014) [-]
DNP is only harmful over a short period of time if you overdose, in which case you will for sure die.
Long term nobody knows if it has any adverse effects and anybody who claims otherwise is overextending data or lying.
User avatar #21214 to #21210 - marinepenguin (11/24/2014) [-]
It's thought to be a possible carcinogen. Not enough data to know for sure.
User avatar #21216 to #21214 - leal (11/24/2014) [-]
FALSE
Over the decades of research on DNP, scientists have never shown it to have the ability to cause cancer or any other mutations despite the fact that its a phenol and that most phenolic compounds are carcinogenic.

"New insights in the cellular processing of platinum antitumor compounds, using fluorophore-labeled platinum complexes and digital fluorescence microscopy."

Molenaar C, Teuben JM, Heetebrij RJ, Tanke HJ, Reedijk J. Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Leiden University Medical Centre, The Netherlands. DNP is used as a control in tests of antitumor cells because it does NOT bind to cell DNA, nor promote tumors, yet its staining abilities enable tracking of the uptake of antitumor drugs.

Specific inhibition of breast cancer cells by antisense poly-DNP-oligoribonucleotides and targeted apoptosis." Ru K, Taub ML, Wang JH. Department of Biochemistry, State University of New York, Buffalo 14260-3000, USA Are you ready for this? DNP actually INHIBITS (!!!) breast cancers!

Yes, not only does it NOT promote cancers, its being recognized as a cancer-fighter/blocker.

"Two membrane-permeable and RNase-resistant antisense poly-2'-O-(2,4-dinitrophenyl)-oligoribonucleotides (poly-DNP-RNAs) have been synthesized as inhibitors of human breast cancerfluorescence assay indicates that the targeted antisense inhibition by poly-DNP-RNAs leads to apoptosis of SK-Br-3 cells but does not affect nontumorigenic MCF-10A cells.

The control poly-DNP-RNAs with random or sense nucleotide sequence are completely inactive." Plain English?

DNP is being synthesized as an anti-cancer compound, because tests show that it blocks mutagens but does NOT affect non-mutagenic (healthy) cells, and has no RNA effects on them.

Okay well good then. That still doesn't change the fact that it isn't advice to give to a beginner.
User avatar #21219 to #21217 - leal (11/24/2014) [-]
It was the only answer to his question.
User avatar #21213 to #21210 - donnybergerstory (11/24/2014) [-]
I have no idea what DNP is, i was just imply stating why I think marinepenguin was irritated. And like I said, I never saw the original comment, itwas deleted.
User avatar #21215 to #21213 - marinepenguin (11/24/2014) [-]
He wanted to know the fastest way to lose weight.
User avatar #21221 to #21220 - marinepenguin (11/24/2014) [-]
Which DNP will do that. I causes fat to literally melt off your body by your body turning it into heat. In 6-8 days you can lose 15 pounds if fat with no exercise. The problem is that if you take too much or increase dosage too quickly or take it for too long, your body could literally cook itself and you can die. Not to mention that you feel like you're sitting in a sauna the entire time you are taking it. Read up on some people's experiences with it and you'll see what I mean. It could definitely have its uses in a controlled environment while being monitered by professional staff, but definitely don't give it to someone who's a beginner.

how do i prevent the bar from rolling whenever i do a heavy by my standards deadlift?
User avatar #21245 to #21170 - connorjay (11/25/2014) [-]
Mixed grip is the best thing. I use it for anything over 100 or 120kg.
User avatar #21182 to #21170 - jokerjack (11/23/2014) [-]
Use a mixed grip. One hand overhand, one hand underhand. I switch which is which each set to avoid fears of becoming unbalanced
#21223 to #21182 - anonymous (11/25/2014) [-]
gotta picture example?
User avatar #21183 to #21182 - hsm (11/23/2014) [-]
but that feels like cheating
User avatar #21186 to #21183 - jokerjack (11/23/2014) [-]
Nah. Look at most of the legit deadlifters. They use a mixed grip above 50% of their max

Why would you limit the amount of weight you can move with your legs and back, just because your fingers can't maintain the stability? I use regular overhand grip when I'm warming up, then on my work sets I used mixed grip as overhand can't do enough weight. And I chalk if I'm testing my max or hit something that heavy. Your grip strength still gets stronger while you do the stuff, you can just keep getting stronger at the larger and more important muscles as well.

What do you mean by rolling?
User avatar #21178 to #21171 - hsm (11/23/2014) [-]
i get in the deadlift position with my hands on the bar in standard grip. I lift, it's gets off the ground then the weight starts slipping and almost rolls out of my hands. I have enough grip strength to do 15 pull ups if that amounts to anything.
User avatar #21180 to #21178 - marinepenguin (11/23/2014) [-]
Well you could either try staggered grip, my grip always seems stronger there, or you could do some auxiliary lifts to help increase grip strength. Heavy Dumbbell rows are one movement I've seen that helps grip strength. Or just do lower weight with deadlifts and do a few more reps, like 6-8.
User avatar #21184 to #21180 - hsm (11/23/2014) [-]
thanks, i'll try it out. any other deadlifting tips?
User avatar #21185 to #21184 - marinepenguin (11/23/2014) [-]
Nothing I can think of. I've only been deadlifting for 6 months and I'm chasing a 3 plate 5RM. So I'm not necessarily an expert on good deadliftomg.

Dood I fucking love that song.
User avatar #21203 to #21163 - donnybergerstory (11/24/2014) [-]
I literally listen to it every time I workout. I listen to it when I do jump roping to make me feel like rocky and when I run. Sounds dumb but Rocky Balboa is the perfect definition of a man IMO and that movie is so fucking good, that song just makes you want to be like him when working out.
User avatar #21250 to #21203 - oborawatabinost (11/25/2014) [-]
Exactly! Most people probably think it's just some corny 70's movie, but I see it as more than that.

Hey guys, so I have been using C4 extreme before lifting 6 times a week, and I'm doing three scoops of it. Is this okay? Any downsides? (im 6'7 220)
User avatar #21161 to #21154 - joshkroger (11/22/2014) [-]
It has a shit ton of B12, like way too much. Just stay hydrated and you'll be good.
User avatar #21158 to #21154 - marinepenguin (11/22/2014) [-]
There aren't a ton of downsides, just don't take more then 3 scoops. The effect wears off as your body gets used to it though. I usually use it for a month or two then stop taking it for a month or two.

Hi guys my mom is anorexic and she wants to get better,so I thought an easy workout routine would make her feel more confident in getting a healthier body.So what workout routine do you guys recommend?
User avatar #21204 to #21146 - donnybergerstory (11/24/2014) [-]
KungFu was right, but get her on a great dieting plan. I don't know how bad her condition was or is, but start getting her to eat more and more calories every two weeks. I know you asked for workout routine but I thought I'd throw that in there.

Bodybuilding.com has plenty of good workout routines. Here is one I found by entering female and the goal of building muscle.

Ive been thinking about a No2 Explode and a creatine stack with l-leucine and l-glutamine, anything i should change or add, also as of right now im taking .8gs of protein per lb of body weight, anything i should change or add in my stack?
#21152 to #21144 - KungFuZerO (11/22/2014) [-]
What are you current stats? Why do you feel you need creatine and no2?
And I've always stuck to 1g/lb for protein. You probably won't ever get to the point where you're eating too much protein.
User avatar #21153 to #21152 - tommythetrain (11/22/2014) [-]
Stats as in core lifts and height/weight? and im planning on the no xplode because im gonna be doing strictly high weight low reps, because im just going for mass 4 a bit and i want that xtra pump, and because of that im trying to make a recovery stack which is why i planned the creatine to help mostly with recover mostly.
#21155 to #21153 - KungFuZerO (11/22/2014) [-]
Yeah, lifts height and weight.

#21159 to #21156 - KungFuZerO (11/22/2014) [-]
Those are some great stats, especially for your age. IMO you might want to wait off on the creatine, just because you're at the age where your muscle mass is going to start increasing dramatically. As long as your calorie intake is high and you're eating around 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight, you'll be fine. And if you can, I would suggest moving towards straight bar deadlift. More posterior chain activation.
User avatar #21160 to #21159 - tommythetrain (11/22/2014) [-]

Anyone know the best route to go if I wanted to build muscle specifically for fighting?
User avatar #21141 to #21140 - thisismyhandle (11/22/2014) [-]
Pick your favorite martial art, find a real gym for it (i.e. don't go to any family karate studios where there are eleven year old kids running around with black belts), and sign up. The actual training will help build muscles to support the fighting style, and you can always talk to whoever is teaching you to find out what exercises you can do on your own to ge closer to your goal.

Well not all cereal. But most cereals. Sugared up and not really nutritional. Cocoa puffs, reeses puffs, lucky charms, etc. Non sugary cereal with like raisins and blueberries is great though. Most people don't eat that when talking about cerealbthough.
#21150 to #21139 - KungFuZerO (11/22/2014) [-]
Yeah but anything is terrible for breakfast if you choose the unhealthy options. This entire conversation, and most of the other ones we've had, are unnecessary if you don't make blanket statements that aren't true until I add some clarification.

Dudes strong as hell. His legs seem so small compare to the rest of his body. Looking like mister incredible.

And I started lifting because I was skinny and weak compared to other guys, and I didn't want to be anymore.
User avatar #21121 to #21120 - studbeefpile (11/21/2014) [-]
Small legs? Dude, what are you smoking? He squats over 700lbs.

I had similar reasons to the ones he mentioned at the beginning of the video. I was fat, weak, and depressed, and lifting was something I could channel my emotions into.
User avatar #21122 to #21121 - marinepenguin (11/21/2014) [-]
I didn't say his legs were small, just that they looked small in comparison to his massive upper body. Dudes huge. There's no doubting that.

And I can understand that. I was always given the short end of the stick when it came to sports. And that frustration was thrown into my workouts. Plus my younger brother pushes me by being better at sports and much more gifted genetically, so he's naturally bigger and stronger then me even now. So I am forced to push that much harder to reach his level.
#21123 to #21122 - studbeefpile (11/21/2014) [-]
Yeah, my older brother was always thinner and more muscular than me, and his genetics for aesthetics are ridiculous, so I decided I'd beat him in the only area I could. Strength. When we both started lifting with barbells he could bench about 185, and I could only hit about 145. Now I'm repping out his current max of 225, and my deadlift is about 80lbs higher than his.

Feels good man.
User avatar #21124 to #21123 - marinepenguin (11/21/2014) [-]
My brother has one upped me in literally every aspect of my life. I played basketball, he's an all state basketball player, I played football, he's an all state linebacker, I join the military, he gets a call from West Point and they want him to be a linebacker for them. The kid doesn't watch what he eats, lifts unintelligently with no real programming and is 10 pounds heavier, leaner, and 2 inches shorter. He benches 255, squats 400, and power cleans 275. The only thing I have done better then him is not get in trouble with police and gotten better grades and scores then him. Most people would look at that and think that there's no point in trying to match him, but I take it as a challenge and a chance to better myself physically and as a person.
User avatar #21125 to #21124 - studbeefpile (11/21/2014) [-]
Some people are just gifted, dude. It's honestly kinda a waste of good genetics if you think about it. If he's as strong as he is lifting foolishly, imagine how strong he could get with proper diet and programming. But that's not going to happen, because it sounds like he doesn't have the same discipline and work ethic that you do.

That's what you beat your brother in. Working hard. Sure, he might get certain things handed to him, but eventually the free stuff is gonna run out, and he's going to be left without the experience of working for things. Meanwhile, you fought hard to get what you have, and are going to do well for yourself regardless, because you worked for it. You're in control, you're not relying on hand outs.

So chin up, mate. Take pride in what you've accomplished.
User avatar #21126 to #21125 - marinepenguin (11/21/2014) [-]
I realize all that, and I appreciate the kind words. But like I said, it's never gotten me down. I take it as a challenge and I let it drive me and work even harder then before. I don't want the kid to become unsuccessful, he's my brother, I want to teach him proper programming and make him be as big and strong as possible and I want him to do great things, because in turn that makes me work that much harder and try to learn that much more so that I can reach that same level. If that makes any sense.

Well, nothing seems to be happenin on the fitness board lately so I might as well add a rant I recently acquired.
I am not obese by any means. Could I stand to lose a few? Yes. Am I "fat"? Most would say no. I have been in amazing shape before, did all the programs like Insanity or p90x without much difficulties in areas that didn't pertain to a certain injured area. And I used to think all that fat shaming and whatnot was nonsense, but now that I have more a normal bodytype, I can kind of see what they are complaining about. Recently, I got a guilt lecture about not working out for 2 hours a day 6 days a week. I don't have the time? Well I am apparently obligated to make time. If I'm not in amazing body builder shape my entire life that is just not ok with my friends or people I know who work out.

cont
#21113 to #21112 - anonymous (11/21/2014) [-]
Now, when I was in shape I never saw this. People went about their business. It's so fucking annoying, I can't imagine how this would affect someone who is actually obese. If anything it's a full deterrent. It certainly doesn't make me want to work out harder, makes me want to tell them to go fuck themselves and stick to my normal 30 minute routine or stop completely as I am happy with how I look now.

This nonsense gets even more insane when you are older. Constantly compared to body builders and professional trainers whose litteral JOB is to be like that. A lot of people work 40-60 hours a week and spend their free time doing other tasks. If you are exhausted from working out 2 hours before work, or can't spend time with your family because you are exhausted from working 2 hours after work serious problems will occur.

tl;dr not everyone wants to be arnold or phelps
User avatar #21114 to #21113 - marinepenguin (11/21/2014) [-]
Now much of what you said is all well and good. A lot of guys who are in awesome shape rag on guys who aren't. Same with women. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with working out just to be healthy, when you're happy with yourself. But let me offer the perspective from the other side of things. Now people who work out don't just work out and that's it. The majority of big guys I know have lives. A 9-5 job, a wife, kids, responsibilities they have to fulfill outside of weightlifting. Theyre busy just like every adult usually is. The difference is that these guys have a goal that they are trying to attain physically, and to attain tat goal they have to MAKE time. Getting up at 4 am and hitting the gym early, or after putting the kid to bed. Could they not do that? of course. But they would rather bench 4 plates then get another hour or so of sleep. If your goals don't require that you have to make harder sacrifices to reach them then that's great. But don't be that guy that claims that big dudes have nothing they do in their lives but work out.

As for the guys pressuring others into training different. They're assholes. There are a lot of those in this world, you'll find them in literally every group or cliche known to man, get used to them.

As for fat shaming, I can speak for about a dozen other lifters I know personally that when we see a fatter guy working out, and is putting in work, we get a funny feeling in our groins. And we're silently rooting for him all the way. It's the fat people who complain about being fat and do nothing to fix their problem that we make fun of. I have just as much respect for the guy who lost 300 pounds as the guy who benches 300 pounds.

User avatar #21115 to #21114 - marinepenguin (11/21/2014) [-]
As for that last point, I'll tell you right now that 99% of big bodybuilders and lifters have a job other then bodybuilding or powerlifting. Unless you are in a class of the most elite lifters, you aren't getting paid shit for doing it. They either make their money like normal people do, training people, or owning their own gyms. The reason that these guys look like they do compared to the average Joe is because 1. They dedicate literally every aspect of their lives to their sport 2. They are on supplements like anabolic steroids 3. They are good at working out and know what they are doing 4. Unmatched hard work and dedication to something few people understand.

Not everyone wants to look like Arnold, but don't belittle and berate those that go the lengths and put in the work to follow the same path as him.

No more squatting for me for a few weeks at least.
And I probably also need to calm down on Deadlifts, so going to go down to 180 and make sure I'm alright and fully able and shit.

There are no effective diet pills out there. Sorry bro, no magic shortcuts. Just eating less and moving more

not true, the ingrediant in stackers 2 worked before they banned it for over the counter

Almost nearing a loss of 30kg.
(Don't mind the watermark over my grad photo)
All I did was cut out sugary drinks and ran when I felt like it.

About 119kg (left) - 92kg (right)
Almost a years difference...
Any tips to build muscle mass and lose weight would be greatly appreciated.

join a gym, do compound barbell lifts, add weight to the bar each week

Google Starting Strength and Stronglifts 5x5

I would just start off with push ups and sit ups.

Pulled 415 for a solid single, then hit 315 for 10. Pretty happy with that.

Side note, I've made sickening speed gainz since switching to sumo - like, all my pulls are whey faster.

Shorter pull distance and better leverage on sumo style. But that's awesome dude.

Leverage depends on individual bone structure and limb lengths. A lot of people do much better with a conventional stance - otherwise every single powerlifter would pull sumo. I'm only losing an inch of ROM, so I'm not really gaining a huge distance advantage. I think it's mostly because I'm genetically gifted when it comes to glutes and legs in general, and of course the sumo is more leg dominant.
