Training for heavyweight fighting. Overextending, clinching, tagging and weaving are all gonna be much more common place fighting people that are 6'1"+ like they all are on the high weight classes.

no matter what one of your hands should always be at the side of your head. that's boxing 101, well kickboxing anyway from what I learned.

Except that's not the case at all. They don't need to be for clinch drills etc. like I was doing here. Also body guard. I've been boxing for 8 years I'm pretty sure I know what I'm doing

It is if I was doing it with regular bag work, but this was after my regular training, after my lifting, just fucking around for 10 minutes and getting to grips with mostly clinching

Was working on what I put in the comment for that round. Heavyweight fighting is a lot different in the style of the boxing so I have to get used to things which, at middleweight are not as necessary

You could pick up a head injury from a bad habit though. Can you give me an actual reason why it's beneficial for you to drop your hands here? I think you're just getting defensive because you don't like being wrong.

Hey guys, this may be more of a medical question, but has anyone had a problem where their sweat stings and makes you itchy?

This happens to me every now and then where i would start to sweat from either moving around or just by going into a warmer environment. ( eg from out side to inside. ) It mostly happens on my back and shoulders. It becomes intensely itchy and stings a lot.

If anyone has had something like this or know something about it, it would be some great help to figure out what it is.

Hey guys, I'm kinda new to the aspect of working out, I've mostly done just cardio and messed around with a few machines at the gym, but I'm looking to start going and actually getting in to shape, I don't wanna spend a lot for a personal trainer, but I don't exactly want to just go and waste my time trying to figure out what I should be doing, anyone have any knowledge or somewhere that can guide me other than just random google articles? Somewhere to even just start would be wonderful.

Scales are broken but if I had to guess I'd say I'm around 180 this morning. Up 5lbs. Gonna get this weight leaner then go up to 190, get that leaner then go for the 200lbs which should put me around fight night at the top of heavyweight. Also hit 110kg b nah for 4 yesterday so that was cool.

What's more or less the ideal bodyfat% to avoid visible layers of fat around the torso, and what's a good way to fix it when I'm already on the lower side of normalweight?

Right now I can't visibly judge how it looks for other reasons, but my bodyfat% is about 17-18%, and I'm curious to know if I should cut back a bit by adjusting my diet and exercises a bit.

It isn't so much about abs since my muscle mass is nothing more than unremarkable, but it's more to avoid looking noticeably skinnyfat. The reason why I can't see whether or not that's the case is because I have quite a bit of leftover skin tissue from weight loss which basically covers everything on my lower torso, so the only thing I can judge clearly by is my visible ribcage.

And I am getting into more casual rowing, cardio and lifting so I'll gain just a bit more mass, but if I would have a priority, it'd to make sure I get more lean.

Intermittent fasting works wonders for me, personally. The thing with the skin is that no matter how lean you get, it won't go away and there's nothing you can do about that short of surgery. A set of clippers and a tape measure can be used for accurate body fat measurement

Any short explanation of how intermittent fasting works? I usually just eat about 2-3 times a day with no real pattern and fast for at least 12 hours every day.

And yeah, the skin has become more than a nuisance. I'm just waiting to see if it gets better, and probably just go for surgery if there's no improvement.

Fast for 16-20 hours at a time, eat for 4-8 hours at a time (make up the remaining hours of 24 with your feeding period) boosts metabolism and supposedly prompts a mild release of growth hormones

Okay so if you fast for 16 hours, there's 8 hours left in a 24 hour period, so that's the amount of time you can eat for before the cycle resets and you re enter the fast period. If you fast for 18 hours, it's only 6 hours to make up the 24 hour cycle, so that's how long you eat for.

Should be easy enough as I'm already used to doing it, sort of. I just need to eat bigger within a shorter timespan than currently. Although, if I wake up before the fasting is done, should it be alright to skip breakfast for a bit maybe for a few hours ?

That's more than enough. If you're eating a minimum of a gram of protein per kg of body weight, you'll be fine assuming you stay in a caloric surplus. Higher protein during cuts is probably for the best.

I've seen this study before, and the progress is amazing but it is full of misinformation for sure. There is no physical way for the human body to build that much muscle without anabolic drugs, even if he is regaining mass, especially of he's on a caloric surplus of maybe 2,000 calories when a lb of pure muscle is probably around 1800 calories to produce. 1 gram of protein = 4 calories, roughly 454 grams per lb Also, the article is saying he was at like 2-3% bodyfat, not even modern bodybuilders are that lean, they're usually around 5ish in the Olympia, and even higher in tested shows.

It's possibly a typo, but it still states that he lost 20 something pounds of fat, so he was probably down from 13% to 8-10. I'm not doubting that he put on most of the claimed mass, because the guy went from kinda swole to freaky.

Does any one know how to strengthen joints & bones? my joints are in pretty bad shape, its kinda the main reason I can't weight-lift, too much pain.
(though its doesn't mean I can't lift heavy objects)

and my bones also feel lacking in strength. not as badly as my joints though. but since they're connected, I just think I should strengthen them as well

Recently started doing stronglifts 5x5 after working out consistently but without a program for 3 years. I did mostly bodyweight and machine stuff, with occasional compound movements but not often enough. Current working set weights are:
Bench - 95
Squat - 105
Deadlift -125
OHP -70
Barbell Row - 95
Aside from the main lifts, which feel really light right now since i just started,i also do core and other isolation exercises (i.e curls, pushdowns, pec flys, reverse flys, front and side lateral raises, etc) and run on off days, with sunday as a rest day. Is this too much, or is it okay as long as i eat and sleep enough? Just doing the compounds doesnt really feel like enough volume to me.
Also, any tips on keeping my back straight during rows and deadlifts? Thanks in advance for any help

So there is this girl, fit as all hell, goes to the gym every fucking day, and I like this chick. Now what I wanna do is get back in shape and impress the fuck outta her (not by being a tool though) I haven't been to the gym in like forever, but I'm no fat slob i'm 6'2" and weigh about 208 I'm a mechanic and farm boy so I'm pretty fit, but my arms are slacken.

Ok so here's what I need from you guys, I need to get my arms bigger, get some definition to my abs, and fuck that leg day ( running 2 miles in 15:00 flat, so fuck that shit) Ask me what you need to, all I ask you is to help me get those gains.

Want to impress a fit chick?
Don't skip legday.

If you're new to working out start with training everything every two days. For every muscle group 2 exercises, 3 or for sets, 8-12 reps per set.
After about 6 weeks your body is used to weighttraining and you could train a different muscle every day.
If you want to know more, you can message me. I have a few workout schemes and stuff and I might be able to help you

I mean I walking around from 0500 until 1800 with steel toe boots on every day since I was like 16 ( 25 now). When I run my legs don't get tired its the rest of me that gets tired. But if I must do a leg day then I will.

A swole upper body looks incomplete if you don't have swole legs to accompany them.

Don't be a fucking pussy. Squat like a real man. Running doesn't do shit for your legs.

For arms, heavy compounds complimented by accessories. Weighted chins, close grip bench, then curls and skull crushers.

You're not quick enough to skip leg day.

Anyway, for biceps, preacher curls, hammer curls, concentration curls, barbell curls, 21s, pull-ups
Triceps, rope pushdowns, v bar pushdowns, skullcrushers, close grip bench, dips
Abs, grab 2 heavy-ish dumbbells (like 24kg) and do sit-ups holding them for sets of 8, zercher squats, squats, leg raises

I love me some decline hammer curls. Was supposed to only do 12, but I was feeling pretty good.

385x5, done after 345x10. Good speed on all the reps. Really happy with my improvements in form. I probably had at least 6 or 7 in the tank, but I don't like to push near failure on DLs, I find I'm way too fried to do anything else afterwards if I really go hard, and I believe accessories are super important.

Is it only logical that my energy slips up quickly when I'm running as I rarely eat over 2000 calories a day? I don't know if I'm just really badly out of shape, as I have a hard time jogging 450 yards before getting tired and having to slow down.

As the first sentence is implying, I don't have a lot of weight to carry around with to begin with, if that's any kind of factor to consider.

Well you need to eat more first off, food is energy. Also drink plenty of water. When it comes to only being able to run 450 yards before feeling tired, just push your self a bit further each time, work on a constant pace. Im pretty fit, I can easily do 10+ pull ups, and 40+ push ups but my runnings shit, I can barely go over a mile at a 7:00 pace while pushing myself. My recommendation is eat a good amount of food a day, and work on cardio and legs.

Yup. That makes sense. If you don't eat enough, your body won't have enough energy for working out

To elaborate, there are days where I barely even reach 1600 calories.

I've heard great things about it, but I doubt it's sustainable for long periods for most normal people. I personally enjoy milk and peanut butter too much to every go beyond a low(ish) carb diet.

Did some bench w/chains today. 225+40lbs of chain. Hit 6x3, and 1 set of 4, and destroyed my face in the process. Each rep added about 2 years.
