I'm getting some love handles, I'm in one of those moods where I feel like I need to cut back down and get my abs and v-lines back instead of staying the course with muscle gain.
User avatar #22283 to #22263 - studbeefpile (12/16/2014) [-]
Stay the course. You don't wanna be that guy making absolutely minimal gains because he's constantly cutting his bulk short. Make your gains, and when you do decide to cut, it'll actually be worth it.
User avatar #22284 to #22283 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
Yeah yeah yeah. I have days to where I have to remind myself of that. Gotta remember that I started out as a kid with little to no fat on him at all. I don't look bad by any means, people tell me that all the time, I'm just not used to being over 12% body fat at all.

Plus there's no use in cutting right now anyways, I'll lose some size and mass when I go through basic training, so I'll have to build back up after that anyways. Maybe having a little extra fat will preserve muscle mass, who knows.
User avatar #22287 to #22284 - studbeefpile (12/16/2014) [-]
Definitely man. If you're doing a lot of cardio in basic, having fat means that you'll burn it off first before your muscles. If I were you, I'd bulk until you went into basic.

Make those strenf gainz son.

By the way I've never been under 12%, if it's any consolation. #ForeverBulkingBros

Maybe by summertime I can hit 220 pounds if I focus on trying to get some lean gains, I don't want to be so big that I can't run very quick. I still feel pretty damn athletic at 204 pounds right now, plus once it warms up I'll start doing sprints again.

That's no biggie, you're coming from the opposite side of the spectrum as me, you'll get there easily when you want to

And today I'm going for 165 for 20 on Squats. It still hasn't gotten too difficult, but I've had to rest around rep 17 or 18 for a few seconds.

Das it mayne

I've actually never felt un-athletic at all, even now at 210 I can still sprint fast, jump high, climb easily, etc. I wouldn't worry about that too much. Just focus on getting stronger.

Same here, I've actually gotten more athletic as I've gotten heavier, which is weird. The only thing that has suffered for me is my ability to run long distances.

My chest is lacking compared to the rest of my body, how can I make it bigger?
I've decided I'm going to do 100 pushups every night omit weekends to get a start, what are some killer chest exercises to do at the gym?
#22267 to #22261 - KungFuZerO (12/16/2014) [-]
Dont do 100 pushups every night. Thats dumb. Go to the gym and hit chest at least twice a week. At minimum, do flat db/bb press, incline db/bb press, and db flys.

5x5 for strength, 4x12 for hypertrophy, and deep pushups to burnout at the end if you feel like it.
#22266 to #22261 - songemot (12/16/2014) [-]
While you're doing pushups anyway, try deep pushups. Increases the range of motion, and gets your pecs more involved. It also seems to help move your sticking point upward on the bench.

There's no such thing as "toning", you can either lose fat or build muscle. Lose fat by eating a caloric deficit of about 200-500 calories, and do some kind of exercise like walking or sprinting.

you mean like buy one?

I wont reccomend it. Either you get one for a somewhere between 100 and 500 euro/dollar and you got yourself a piece of crap where the given functions dont work properly, a thing that will start squeaking and creaking after a few uses.

Or you buy a professional model for 1000+, and you spent 1000 or more on a device you only have one use for.


Either way its better to join a gym for the cardio equipment, or go for a jog outside.

I used to do them, they use a lot more chest and less tricep, but you put more strain on your wrists to hold it there and if you have babby fingers you're going to fucking guillotine yourself
User avatar #22256 to #22253 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
I've tried them. I feel it more in my chest. It takes triceps out of the equation a lot, so the chest is forced to compensate.

Holidays just starting, so im gonna try lifting again... currently 6'1 137 lbs

When working my triceps, i only really feel a 'burn' just above elbow and not across the muscle (which is small anyway). Is this normal? just feels more like a tendon or something.

Also, i always feel stress in joints, especially elbows. Any way to tackle this or will it dissipate?

You can PM for more tips, Im always happy to help.
As far as what you've posted though, you definitely need to eat more. Like, waayy more. Someone your height with enough muscle can look killer around 200lbs.
As far as triceps go, try incline skullcrushers to work the entire muscle (overhead work allows the entire tricep to be used).
And for joints, just build more muscle and put on more weight. They will strengthen as you go.

What brand of Whey do you guys use? What flavor?
Do you take Pre-Workout?
Creatine from powder or red meat?

Gold standard, chocolate
I used to take C4 on 3 scoops but it started to taste like shit and not do anything for me
Red meat, get calories and protein at the same time plus the cretine I used to have didn't dissolve in anything
User avatar #22233 to #22226 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
I use On Performance Whey Isolate, Chocolate flavor (GAF in milk). I don't use it too often though, I prefer to just eat a lot of real food.

I've never really taken pre-workouts (I took Hyphy Mud once, but only once, just for fun). Sometimes I do feel tired and unmotivated, but I find that once I get out there and start my warm ups, everything starts to come together.

I don't supplement creatine at all, but I do eat a decent amount of red meat. I have some creatine powder, I just don't use it.

If anyone remembers I decided to start working on a kind of comprehensive paper involving many users that people on this board can read for general questions on losing weight, gaining muscle, diet, etc. I haven't been on top of it recently because of finals for school ( I just had to build a bridge out of paper and glue, took literally 6 hours a day for about 4 days to complete). But after tomorrow morning I'll be totally free and able to work on these things. I see a ton of people asking the same questions and it gets bothersome trying to answer them all when there aren't very many dedicated users on the board.

I had a kinda fucked up childhood, so I think about some of the messed up stuff that's happened to me, right before I go in for a big lift. So that's one.

Another source is when I was in middle school, I was really fat and generally unattractive, so I was immediately getting rejected just as soon as I started interacting with girls more. So I often get worked up thinking about how much of a sack of shit I was, and how much people seemed to hate me.

User avatar #22231 to #22230 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
You know, I never really wanted to be "the big man" per se, (don't get me wrong, I definitely don't want to be small, and I want to be decently intimidating) it had a lot to do with the idea that if I were big and strong, people wouldn't mess with me, and I could just be nice to them, and they would be nice to me back. Now, I really just wanna be the guy that my friends feel safe around. I want to be the guy that people ask to walk them to their car late at night, because they know nobody will touch them if I'm with them.



Of course, if someone were to mess with me now, they'd get majorly fucked up. I don't really want that to happen, though.

Isn't that just painful to watch? I hate how I used to do that in high school. I would Box Squat like 385 2 or 3 times on a super high box to where I went down to maybe a quarter squat. I was decently strong for my scrawny frame of 145 lbs, but some of the stuff I did was cringey.

This was on deadlift. But I can squat 315 for a good 6 or 7. Below parallel of course, I'm a competitive powerlifter, so I have to hit depth.

Deadlifts are the only exercise I'm naturally afraid to push myself in because I have a fear of snapping my back. Not that it hurts or anything after i do it atleast anymore, I was doing it incorrectly before but I fixed myself , I just do since I'm lifting so much and get the most intense out of any other workout.
User avatar #22236 to #22198 - TokenWhiteKid (12/15/2014) [-]
don't be afraid of deadlifts. As long as you keep your core tight, chest up, and don't let your lower back round, you're good.



The best part about deadlifts is that if you feel your form is breaking, just drop the weight. You don't need a spotter.

User avatar #22199 to #22198 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
I recommend either having someone experienced watch you deadlift every so often, or posting a video on here and having one of us critique your form from time to time just to make sure you're still doing well.

As long as you're keeping decent form, and bracing properly, you're not gonna go to snap city.

Hey guys, I'm trying to put on atleast 10 - 12 pounds within the next 2 months. I got really sick a while back and dropped from 165 to 150 in a matter of a week because I could not eat. Since then I'm back to 160 and have been working out every day for the past 3 weeks, I try to eat and eat whenever I can but i've been stuck at 160, Basically what I'm asking is, what do you guys do to gain weight to turn into muscle?
#22221 to #22181 - baglesbites (12/15/2014) [-]
If you're a beginner, you can probably put on around 1-1.5 pounds a week and see great strength and size gains with minimal fat gain. If you struggle gaining weight you really need to count your calories and finding out your intake to gain. If you are an active person outside of the gym start at around 3000 calories and see if you gain any weight after a week. if not, add 200-500 calories until you're consistently gaining 1-2lbs a week. Try drinking milk and eating calorie dense foods like nuts and oils. Don't worry too much about what you eat as long as there is a lot of protein and you get in a decent amount of fruits and veggies.

Alright guys, I'm a 5'11, 60kg ~130 lbs weakling. I need advice on how to put on some weight. I'm buying dumbells tomorrow and I'd like to know 2 things. Will 2 25lb dumbells be enough to make me toned up if I make the right routines? And also, do I need to have a special diet to get to 70kg ~150lbs in a period of 6 months?
User avatar #22217 to #22176 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/15/2014) [-]
Eat a lot of food, ~3500 calories a day and at least 150 grams of protein.

Doing a purely bodyweight routine mixed in with other things involving the 25 pound dumbbells, you MIGHT be able to gain 20 pounds. I couldn't imagine someone getting much bigger then that doing just bodyweight movements though. Doing lots of pushups, pullups, leg raises, lunges, sprints, box jumps, overhead presses, etc, could help you gain size. Get creative with those dumbbells, and you may as well stick for high reps. Soon doing 25 pounds for sets of 8-10 will get ridiculously easy.

If you are really serious about gaining an appreciable amount of muscle, I HIGHLY reccommend finding a way to get into a gym. Barbell training with bench presses, squats, deadlifts, overhead presses, rows, etc is one of THE best methods to build size and strength.

I'm gonna need you guys to treat me like a retard here because I have little to no idea how weight loss works or anything (I'm shit at biology), and I want to slim down my thighs, ass, upper arms and belly. I don't have a lot of fat on my upper arms or belly, but I would like to get rid of what fat is there. For my thighs and ass, I have a very large ass or a man and my thighs are slightly larger than normal but I'd like them to be smaller. I have no access to gym equipment (complicated and personal reasons why, basically too poor).

Is there a way to lose fat in the aforementioned areas? Again, I'm a literal retard when it comes to biology and what foods do what to your body.

Eat less.
User avatar #22141 to #22137 - unncommon (12/14/2014) [-]
Yes, there's a way. And I'll male it easy:

* * *Diet:
Cut carbs down to ~<100
Eat healthy foods duh
Reduce caloric intake (should be easy if eating right)

*Exercise:
Push ups
Planks + side planks
Squats
Jog

* *Monitor weight:
Go for 2lb (~1kg) a week, if it's not going down, reduce calories

Also note, spot reduction is a myth (meaning you can't reduce fat in one specific area, you reduce it every where). It will take a little bit but you will noticea difference.

If you want to gain and keep muscle though, eat lots of complex carbs, at least 50% of your caloric intake should be carbs. Otherwise your muscles won't grow.

Also, how much of each exercise should I do, and is walking a good substitute for jogging?

I'm not sure if I should loose too much weight, I'm 18, 178cm tall and I currently weigh ~72kg. I'm just unfit, I guess.

On a bmi scale you're probably good, but bmi is shit and doesn't account for bf% or age or anything other than height:weight.
You should start off at about:
Repetitions × Sets (1min. rest in between sets)
Plank - 1min.×2
Side Plank - 1min. (each side)×2
Jumping Jacks 45sec.×2 forgot this one
Push ups - 10×4
Squats - 15×4
Jog - 1 mile (1.6km)
Every other day

Also walking is good for you, but don't cheat yourself out of jogging. If you can't do a 1 mile jog then jog as far as you can and walk the rest.
Do this for about 3 - 4 weeks then get back with me, once you've prepaid your body for decent exercise I'll help you gain muscle. In 10 weeks you can have your current body weight but look better and feel better.

Alrighty then. Couple questions. Should I be eating foods like vegetables, meat and whole grains, with minimal carbs? Should anything in my life change? Like, does my sleep or stress levels affect weight loss? What should I be drinking? Currently I drink pretty much nothing but Apple and Blackcurrant (no added sugar).
User avatar #22186 to #22150 - nyawgga (12/15/2014) [-]
Do everything the guy above mentioned, except do NOT rest inbetween any of the sets, and zip through it all as FAST as you can, as intense as you can. Rest ONLY if you have to.

You'll gain results four times as fast.

No idea what blackcurrant is but it looks like black berries so it's k
However your primary drink should be water and don't consume too much wheat products because they're high in carbs. And sleep 8 hours a night (I tend to try and go over that, personally because I have sleep problems). But stress does affect eight fluctuation, you should try to reduce this factor anyway. The way that I personally tackle stress is by getting alone time and thinking and having a positive attitude about stuff. Not for everyone but it works for me.

How about this for a "meal plan": Scrambled eggs every morning, meat and vegetables for dinner, and fruit for lunch?
User avatar #22154 to #22153 - unncommon (12/14/2014) [-]
Sounds like a good plan to me, if you stick to that and consume about 2L of water a day you'll be doing pretty well

Sweet, thanks for all the help. So is this all of it? (I'm also working on my personal hygiene).
User avatar #22158 to #22155 - unncommon (12/14/2014) [-]
Yessir, abs I try to floss at night, it's supposed to be good for your health and hygiene. Also I learned an interesting tip about showing and that's to always wash your hair first. After you rinse your hair all the dirt and grease and stuff goes all over your body, so if you just cleaned that then everything that was in your dirty hair is on your clean body.
Good luck bud, I'll check up on you in a couple weeks.

Oh, one last thing: Should I have gravy or not? I'm British and my family has roast every Sunday and there's always gravy.
User avatar #22160 to #22159 - unncommon (12/14/2014) [-]
If you follow your diet 80% of the time you're good, enjoy your gravy my friend.
User avatar #22149 to #22148 - unncommon (12/14/2014) [-]
Also, try to increase the Repetitions (or time or distance) Every week.
User avatar #22151 to #22149 - niimajneb ONLINE (12/14/2014) [-]
