Gonna try to do another QnA next week. ASK YO' QUESTIONS!

It can be anything, lifting advice, nutrition/weightloss, recovery, etc.
User avatar #27765 to #27677 - nyawgga (03/15/2015) [-]
Hey beef! You know I'm always hungry for knowledge.

Anyways, I've gained a lot of bodyfat because I miscalculated my calorie maintenance requirements. I was at 4000 and I gained probably 8 lbs of bodyfat in the past month alone.

Anyways, I have a small gut now, and it's bugging the shit out of me, yet I don't want to cut because my muscles have barely developed, I've gotten 3 lbs of muscle tops.

Is there a way for me to lose fat WHILE still being able to build muscle?

Traps. I already have small calves.

I'm interested to see your explanation of deadlift form, specifically keeping your shoulders back behind the bar. That's one thing I've always had a difficult time with. I can't seem to lean back and really pull back, I always pull it straight up, if that makes any sense.
User avatar #27698 to #27680 - studbeefpile (03/13/2015) [-]
Actually I think I'll do an entire separate video on that, and go into more detail, because that's actually a really good question.
User avatar #27681 to #27680 - studbeefpile (03/13/2015) [-]
Yeah, that's actually a really easy fix, I'll do my best to cover it in a comprehensive manner.

Cheap bulking food to buy for a poor student trying to gain weight? I dont have time for a job right now because i am a kickboxing junior instructor every tuesday and thursday and train mondays, wednesday and fridays, so getting more money is not an easy task.

i.e ramen noodles and tuna. Things that are cheap and i can buy in massive bulks.
#27817 to #27671 - Absolute Madman (03/17/2015) [-]
I literally give this everytime someone says something about being on a budget but wanting to eat healthy.

This is a cookbook designed for people on foodstamps to cook and eat healthy. It's awesome, and you just pick and choose recipes from here to suit your diet.


This shit works.

Brown rice is pretty cheap and contains more than twice the amount of protein per 100 gram
It's more expensive than white rice though but it has several other advantages as well

damn he's spitting truth. Gonna find the cheapest buy-in-bulk place in my town, but here in norway there is only One cheap brand that sells good eggs, chicken and rice. but 1kg of chicken breast still costs like 12 US dollars. 100 NOK

Norway isnt cheap, but ill try my best
User avatar #27679 to #27678 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/13/2015) [-]
That's why buying large quantities is the best. You'll pay more every grocery day, but in the end every meal will be cheaper and will save you money.
User avatar #27670 - studbeefpile (03/12/2015) [-]
Back is almost completely recovered. I think I'm gonna deadlift again for the first time since getting hurt this Monday.

Gonna pull 135x20 sumo, then 135x20 conventional + a shitton of accessory work.

Isn't deadlift for hamstring? Improper form or just too heavy?
User avatar #27789 to #27775 - studbeefpile (03/16/2015) [-]
Deadlift is the best exercise for building a huge back.

Romanian deadlifts are a variation that focuses on the ham strings, you're probably thinking of that.

I was pulling 405 for 4 reps, the first 3 were clean, but form broke down significantly on the last rep, so I got injured.
User avatar #27707 to #27670 - dvmaster ONLINE (03/14/2015) [-]
How did you get hurt?
User avatar #27709 to #27707 - studbeefpile (03/14/2015) [-]
I let my ego get in the way of good form. Pulled 405 for 4. First 3 were clean, last one wasn't.

How do you guys gain weight to fix bony arms? Especially that bone near your hand that sticks out on your wrist.

Or am I just going to have to stick to having it because im a skinny cunt.?
User avatar #27672 to #27660 - xtwinblade (03/13/2015) [-]
workout arms everyday CT Fletcher style. and isolate forearm exercises.
#27668 to #27660 - Absolute Madman (03/12/2015) [-]
There's a simple and easy solution to fix your bony wrists, it's called wearing a watch or something so people can't see them

bony arms yeah just lift that'll go away eventually
#27667 to #27660 - nimba (03/12/2015) [-]
Using those grip trainers will give you pop-eye forearms
User avatar #27666 to #27660 - thisismyhandle (03/12/2015) [-]
You would have to gain some fat, I'd imagine. I don't know if you could ever bulk up your forearms that much (or why you would dedicate that much time to do so), and the fat is definitely not worth taking on.

I have a pretty thick/big bone structure and I've had that bone popping out even when I'm at a fairly high body fat percentage, so it's not something you can really get rid of. Like MP said, you can't change what roll of the dice you got on that one.
User avatar #27665 to #27660 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/12/2015) [-]
You cant really change your bone structure, I have bony elbows and thin wrists, even after gaining 60 pounds.

Hah, pointy elbows. No woman could ever truly love you.

Managed to squat 295 for 10 today. Seems I lose 5 reps every 20 pounds. Which puts me at around a 335 1RM. Although I believe I could do more. I stop more because of form breakdown than being tired. Once I hit a weight for 3-5, I'll go down and try to get 275 for 20. Then move up by 5 pounds again for a while until I decide to peak.

Want to increase the amount of protein in my diet, and lower fats and sugar...

I added a scoop of protein (Strawberry and cream) to some greek yogurt and thrown it in the freezer to eat tomorrow and the next day after my work out.

Any other easy solutions you guys can suggest?

I've also bought a "lean mean grilling machine" so I can always have chicken (yay)
#27646 to #27642 - baglesbites (03/11/2015) [-]
Reduced fat dairy products and fish. The fatty acids that come from fish are high quality so you still get the essentials. Reducing sugar is as simple as eating less processed foods and eating more vegetables than fruit. Dairy products can slowly but surely raise the amount of sugars, but they're worth it in my opinion.
User avatar #27657 to #27646 - connorjay (03/12/2015) [-]
Stupid fish is expensive and I'm a stupid student :/
Unless I just eat a tin of tuna...!
User avatar #27682 to #27657 - shedinja (03/13/2015) [-]
Tuna is GOAT if you're on a budget. Just make sure you don't eat more than 1 can per day of chunk light tuna
#27684 to #27682 - psyexplain (03/13/2015) [-]

I just had a tin, fucking glorious stuff

GOAT = Greatest of all time
User avatar #27644 to #27642 - scandinavianpedo (03/11/2015) [-]
I just get two slices of protein bread with tuna on for breakfast, there is 51 grams of protein just in one tasty 10 min meal.
Chicken and rice for dinner is an another 100 grams.
Some post workout protein powder for another 50 grams and you got yourself over 200 grams of protein in one day, which is enough for most males who work out.
If you need more just add another meal with the protein bred and you got another 20 grams.
All of this should be low fat, and next to no sugar (the bread has some sugar, but thats minimal).
User avatar #27652 to #27644 - connorjay (03/12/2015) [-]
So you have two scoops of protein powder at a time?
User avatar #27654 to #27653 - connorjay (03/12/2015) [-]
I've only been having 2.5 scoops a day on training...

Could increase that I guess!
User avatar #27655 to #27654 - scandinavianpedo (03/12/2015) [-]
Id rather recommend eating more protein through what you eat instead of eating too much powder.
Then again, i am no expert.
As long as you get enough of the protein its all good.
User avatar #27656 to #27655 - connorjay (03/12/2015) [-]
Well I now have some bright pink frozen yogurt for when I train on Monday...
User avatar #27658 to #27656 - scandinavianpedo (03/12/2015) [-]
hmmm, how about adding some musli to the yogurt to give yourself some filler and extra protein? tastes good as well.
You can get another 10 grams of protein just form the musli.
User avatar #27641 - nimba (03/11/2015) [-]
Anybody got experience with "Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex Lean Mass Gain Powder Double Chocolate"?
Alternatively any opinions on protein shakes?
I'm in the market to getting some more protein and this seems like it might be a simple way to do it.
User avatar #27636 - studbeefpile (03/11/2015) [-]
208 this morning. Progress was a little slowed because I had to adjust my diet to my lower activity level (since I can't squat or deadlift atm). Started going on walks a bit more frequently, but that's still nowhere near the same amount of energy expenditure.

Progress is progress though. Total of 8lbs down so far.
#27629 - europe (03/11/2015) [-]
So I could easily deadlift more than I'm currently deafliting but I'm afraid I'll injure my back, as an acquaintance of mine has.    
How can I increase the weight I lift while making sure I don't fuck up my back? I won't be able to get a spotter

Watch every video and read every article that you can find about proper form(credible sources of course) and apply it to your training. Record yourself on your heavy sets and post the videos on rpowerlifting or a facebook group that does form critiques. You're gonna have to be ocd about your form on every lift and have a purpose for everything you do. Stay mentally focused through the workout and dont get lazy. This way your chances of injury will be very slim

bulk more
start doing mixed grip
start doing rack pulls

Hey guys. I've recently been granted access to all the druid fruit and any kind of nuts for basically free. What's the healthiest and tastiest way to go about this?

I'm currently eating lots of roasted almonds

User avatar #27651 to #27650 - envinite (03/12/2015) [-]
My nuts jk, almonds already pretty good, and nuts in general already healthy. Maybe try some foreign nuts? There's a nut type named 'Koro' from Bali, with only 70g of this nuts contains a whopping 17g of protein with only 340 calories. I believe it's slightly better compared to almonds.

Pause rep benched 185 for 5 today. My pause bench has been shooting up 5 pounds every workout so far. We'll see how far it goes. If I hit 205 for 5 paused I'd be one happy little lifter.

I'm addictive to soda and caffeine, I drink about 3-5 cans of soda per day. I've been trying to cut back but its hard when I usually drink soda with meals and I sometimes forget that I'm not suppose to be drinking it. I've stopped buying soda but I still have some serious cravings for it. Any ways on helping the weaning process go faster or easier?
User avatar #27622 to #27619 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/11/2015) [-]
Cut it cold turkey. Caffeine isn't as addictive as other stuff, give it a few weeks and your cravings will almost dissapear. After a couple months you will barely be able to stand the stuff.

Or you could have something painful happen to you every time you get a soda, condition yourself to hate it.

I do 8 second sprints followed by 20/25 seconds of walking for about 10 minutes or how long i can go. saw some study that it's the most effective method for losing bodyfat and retaining mussels
User avatar #27618 to #27612 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/11/2015) [-]
What do you mean by cardio? Running a mile or two every other day or so can actually really help you. Conditioning work like sprints, complexes, tire flips, etc are awesome and build athleticism. There are lots of ways to incorporate non-weightlifting exercise into your workouts that will help you get even stronger throughout your regular training.

Anyone here experienced a non-related muscle moving when you do certain exercises?

Whenever I do bent over row or shrugs, the area around my right lips and cheek move like I were giving a smirk. This only happens when I use a heavier dumbbells, even when I still feel fresh as fuck.

Cat smirk pic is pretty much how I look like when doing those exercises.

I ate seafood yesterday (Grouper and Crab) and my poop was olive green today. Is that normal?

I figured the fitness board would know, sorry if this is in the wrong place.
User avatar #27630 to #27600 - nonbenderinlife (03/11/2015) [-]
You only have to worry if your poop is pitch black like asphalt which means theres gastrointestinal bleeding or if blood covers your poop and the water is pink/red hemmorhoids .
Olive green probably means theres an issue in your bile but it could also be the seafood. If it keeps being greek consult a doctor.
User avatar #27637 to #27630 - scowler (03/11/2015) [-]
My mom told me it could also be the result of high iron intake. Thanks, nonetheless.

If it smelled really really bad, there could be blood in it, which could potentially be something

I'm trying to get bigger for football season but I seemed to plateau. I knew this was gonna happen sooner or later because I don't take protein powder ever since I dislocated my shoulder while on creatine. Right now, I'm pushing 205 on bench, 365 on squats and a 295 DL. What proteins powders do you guys recommend?
User avatar #27599 to #27595 - Draigor ONLINE (03/10/2015) [-]
Eat more than what you're eating now and in addition add protein powder to your diet. And if you still don't make progress, change your programming.

Gonna start training my younger brother. Hes 15, about 180 pounds and hitting 6 foot. He already works out and is decently strong. Benches around 160, squats over 200, deadlifts 260-280 and power cleans 165. Hes only a freshman, so I'd really like to give him some help and make him into a serious athlete by the time he's a senior.
User avatar #27593 to #27591 - studbeefpile (03/10/2015) [-]
Easily doable.

I recommend starting him on a high rep program

User avatar #27594 to #27593 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/10/2015) [-]
Was gonna have him do basically what I do, put some size on him while building strength and explosiveness. While throwing in some complexes and Sprint work to build athleticism. By the time the kids a senior I wouldn't be surprised if he was 6'4 and 220, even without lifting weights. Hes got my grandfather's genes. and he played for the Broncos in the 60s.
