Is this a healthy breakfast:

1/4 of a Bell Pepper
White Bagel with Pesto Sauce
Glass of Gyokuro Iced Tea
User avatar #16931 to #16915 - delphine (08/17/2014) [-]
Not enough to keep you feeling full. I agree with other posters, cook an egg inside your bell pepper, or put some peanut butter on that bagel instead of pesto at least.

It is if you're anorexic or on a cut. But still, you gotta get some protein
User avatar #16916 to #16915 - hottamaleez (08/16/2014) [-]
Where's the protein?

I think it's time to get some advice from total strangers, because that has ever worked.

So basically I struggle very hard to gain any weight at all. I'm 18 years old and a few months ago I weighed 60 kg or around 130 pounds. Then all of a sudden I gained like 10 kg so that's cool, I just didn't notice any change on my body at all. I eat the same amount of food as any other human being if not more (africa excluded)

So in short: How gain weight? Gaining muscle mass is surprisingly easy for me all that's lacking is some friggin fat to convert to muscle
User avatar #16924 to #16914 - lech (08/17/2014) [-]
You gotta eat big to get big.
Try out GOMADS
User avatar #16934 to #16924 - hydren (08/17/2014) [-]
So just drink tons of milk? I can do that, I like milk. This should be easy

Thanks
User avatar #16936 to #16934 - lech (08/17/2014) [-]
Be sure not to drink too much. Check out myfitnesspal and try to gain a pound a week
User avatar #16937 to #16936 - hydren (08/17/2014) [-]
Alright I was wondering how I was going to down 4 litres a day, I'll check that out. Thanks mate
#16918 to #16914 - webeballin ONLINE (08/17/2014) [-]
You probably just need a lot of calories. Take your weight(in pounds, I don't know the conversion for kilograms), multiply by 1.2 and that is the amount of protein you should have each day. Go for 3000-4000 calories or more per day(but work up to it). Look into mass gainers on bodybuilding.com or wherever.

Anyone here tried intermittent fasting? I'm thinking about trying it but it will be hard to do with highschool around the corner. Also, I am worried that with school coming up, I wont find time to workout.
#16913 to #16910 - anonymous (08/16/2014) [-]
I'm in med school and I'm handling my work outs well, you should be ok.
User avatar #16912 to #16910 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I've heard of it and read up on it, I've never actually had to cut down before so I don't know how well it works in practice. The only thing I'd really worry about is that your body uses muscle more for fuel during the night, because you go the longest without food at that time, so if you skip breakfast and don't eat until noon you risk losing larger amounts of muscle. That being said, the body adapts, so once you settle into this cycle of fasting and then feasting you may have no issues with that. I'd say it's at least worth a shot.
User avatar #16935 to #16912 - donnybergerstory (08/17/2014) [-]
But for a guy like me with a lot of fat, wouldn't the body use my fat rather than muscle? I thought that was the whole point in intermittent fasting.
User avatar #16938 to #16935 - marinepenguin (08/17/2014) [-]
I would think so, like I said I don't have the most experience with it. The articles I were reading were more pointed towards people who were wanting to cut down beneath 10% body fat.
User avatar #16945 to #16938 - donnybergerstory (08/17/2014) [-]
Alright, well thanks for the help.
User avatar #16907 - badgerbaiting (08/16/2014) [-]
Recently had to stop drinking and my body fat has fucking plummeted. Even though I'm eating badly and not up on my cardio (exam time) it's lower than it's ever been.
User avatar #16932 to #16907 - delphine (08/17/2014) [-]
That's because alcohol dehydrates you and it's all empty calories from sugars. The reason most people gain so much weight in college is from drinking alcohol.
User avatar #16933 to #16932 - delphine (08/17/2014) [-]
Also, if you're consuming mixed drinks, any soda you consume is also empty calories.
User avatar #16908 to #16907 - badgerbaiting (08/16/2014) [-]
Anyone else tried this?
User avatar #16909 to #16908 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I don't really drink so I don't have any personal experience with this. But I've read that the way your body processes alcohol prevents you from losing or gaining fat and muscle, I guess it's because it's so hard for your body to break down. But I'm not sure how accurate that it.

jubbehhh take notes.

Hey Fit, I plan on enlisting in the Army, before I join I want to get some muscle on me. I just got a gym membership, and I am wondering what exercises routine should I do to prepare myself. Are there any current or veteran service members of the Army tell me what I should expect from BCT. I plan on doing 12B as my MOS, I also want to try Airborne School.
I am 6'2
220 lbs, last time I checked I had 20% BF.
User avatar #16911 to #16904 - donnybergerstory (08/16/2014) [-]
I've never been in the military, but I think a good way to go would be body weight exercises. Such as push-ups, & pull-ups. Also, do A LOT of cardio, and try benching, and using dumb bells. Make sure you use heavy weights with low reps so you can gain strength.
User avatar #16880 - hsm (08/16/2014) [-]
What are some good exercises to increase your pull up power?
I'm working on learning clapping pullups and for that i have to first learn explosive pullups. I need to increase my explosiveness and Pullup power/speed.
I can do 12 - 15 pullups in 1 set so i have the endurance and strength at least.
User avatar #16903 to #16880 - scoobydoobydo (08/16/2014) [-]
Muscle ups are all about explosiveness.
User avatar #16883 to #16880 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Get strong at the pullup. Don't do more reps, start holding a plate between your legs and start pulling some weight on the pullups. Then you can get strong enough to throw yourself over the bar. Explosiveness is just another form of strength really.
User avatar #16884 to #16883 - hsm (08/16/2014) [-]
weighed pullups?
User avatar #16887 to #16884 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Yessir. Get a weight vest even, if you have to.
User avatar #16893 to #16887 - hsm (08/16/2014) [-]
thanks, i'll give it a go.

Dear God if only I was lucky enough to have an hour alone with her. She'd probably use me as workout equipment.

Hey /fit/ just got my first job as a life guard. any advice on stayin in shape?
Picture is me
User avatar #16859 to #16852 - lordketchup (08/15/2014) [-]
Lift weights?
User avatar #16854 to #16852 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
Being a lifeguard is awful. At least where I worked. It isn't hard, it's just incredibly boring.
User avatar #16906 to #16854 - badgerbaiting (08/16/2014) [-]
First job I had was working with one of the most obese women I've ever seen as a head lifeguard. Christ knows how she kept the job. I had to buddy up with her for some life saving drills and the fat tart nearly drowned me.
#16856 to #16854 - nsfwviewerfav (08/15/2014) [-]
ive been working at this pretty nice water park. its sweet as fuck. no joke sometimes girls will give you their room number and you just go there after your shift. Party and fuck all night. i love it. i dont plan on leaving for awhile
User avatar #16879 to #16856 - alicorn (08/15/2014) [-]
Not trying to be a buzz kill, but fucking random girls you just met is a good way to catch something mate. Sex isn't worth herpes or shit like aids.
#16857 to #16856 - nsfwviewerfav (08/15/2014) [-]
Oh and yes very very boring.
User avatar #16874 to #16857 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
Well fuck me, you got super lucky then. I had just a generic city water park job. Mostly young kids.
User avatar #16853 to #16852 - connorjay (08/15/2014) [-]
Exercise and eat well
User avatar #16850 - FightClub (08/15/2014) [-]
i top out the pec deck
User avatar #16855 to #16850 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
No you don't.
User avatar #16873 to #16855 - FightClub (08/15/2014) [-]
312.5 lb
User avatar #16875 to #16873 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
I didn't even know what you meant by pec deck. I guess you meant bench press?

I bench 225 so good on ya.
#16881 to #16875 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
no, pec deck
User avatar #16882 to #16881 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Oh, that's a machine, no one is really impressed by how much you can do on a machine. It's different then just doing a straight press. I can max out on the lat pulldown machine (500 pounds), but I can only do 4 pullups with a 40 pound weight vest.
User avatar #16885 to #16882 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
try topping out the pec deck and get back to me
User avatar #16886 to #16885 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
with at least 10 constant reps
User avatar #16888 to #16886 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Next time I get into an actual gym I'll see. Haven't used that specific machine in probably a year. I'm not saying it isn't impressive, people just don't generally judge by machines because they aren't as consistent as raw benches, squats, or other movements.
User avatar #16889 to #16888 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
i just do standing flies, chest presses and pec deck flies
User avatar #16890 to #16889 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Wait so you do 312.5 for 10 reps on pec dec flies?
User avatar #16891 to #16890 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
the machine i use tops at 312.5 lb

i vary my sets from 7 - 15 reps, but topping it i do a max of 10
User avatar #16892 to #16891 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I'm asking if you are saying that you do 312.5 for 10 reps with flies, because if that's the case then I wouldn't believe you. Unless I'm totally wrong on what a pec dec is.
User avatar #16894 to #16892 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
a pec deck's repetitions are referred to as flies

standing flies and chest presses i do about 225-250
User avatar #16898 to #16896 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
impressive
User avatar #16895 to #16894 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I just looked up what a pec dec was to make sure I was envisioning the right thing. I was, it's a chest fly on a machine. There is no way you are doing 312 for 10 reps. If you can do 250 on one of those things a few times with good form you are considered a massive and strong ass guy. So unless you are about 220 pounds you're going to have a hard time convincing me of it. If you showed me a video of you doing it then I'd say I'm wrong, but as of right now I'll call bullshit.
User avatar #16897 to #16895 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
i'm actually 200 lb
User avatar #16899 to #16897 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Well I guess I'll believe you, no sense arguing about it on a board. If it's legit then awesome job, I'll have to get to a pec dec and see where I'm at on it. I'm 190's and pretty lean so maybe I'll get in the 200's at least.
User avatar #16900 to #16899 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
just build up gradually; i really only focus on chest all the time, aside from pullups in all variants

it'll build your chest well, but do upward standing flies to work your upper chest to balance it out. the chest press machine is pretty balanced as well
User avatar #16901 to #16900 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I'm sticking to progressing on actual bench press right now, I'm just trying to build a solid base of strength. Get my bench up to 250s, then I'll focus on building size after that. I've gained 50 pounds so far, hopefully I'll be able to get another 30.
User avatar #16902 to #16901 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
idk how much muscle mass i've gained in terms of weight as i've dropped over 30 lb since may due to all the cardio i've been doing, so

i know i've at least doubled in muscle though
