How do I into handstand>handstand pushups?

User avatar #19333 to #19248 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/18/2014) [-]
I fucking hate this gif, I've spent a good 5 minutes mindlessly looking at it for no reason at all.
User avatar #19337 to #19333 - leal ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
No offense but I don't really care.
User avatar #19278 to #19248 - the one and only ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
Start from assisted hand stand push ups to get use to your body weight.
Hold your self on a wall your use to your weight pushing down wards.
Then learn to balance.

I thought you were going for a cut look, calisthenic work outs might take a while to build muscle.

I'm visiting my grandparents for a week.
If I can't find a gym with cheap 1 entry I'd like to at least try and keep a bit in shape.
#19264 to #19248 - KungFuZerO (10/18/2014) [-]
Do it against a wall first. Two feet on the wall > one foot on the wall > just using the wall if you lose balance
User avatar #19251 to #19248 - mendelevium (10/17/2014) [-]
Why would you want to?
User avatar #19256 to #19251 - leal ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
Why wouldn't you?
User avatar #19263 to #19256 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
because overhead press works the same muscles, and you don't look like an idiot when you do it.
User avatar #19294 to #19263 - leal ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
That's just stupid.

Sounds like people who say you shouldn't do squats because only girls should care about their glutes.
User avatar #19300 to #19294 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
But that isn't the reason.
Still workout your shoulders, by all means go ahead.

But if I'm doing bicep curls over by the free weights and you flip yourself on your hands to start doing handstand push ups, im gana laugh, and after that if you cant keep your balance and you fall on me, I'll knock your ass out.

Its a lot more complicated then it needs to be.

That's like saying that there's no point in doing pushups.
User avatar #19314 to #19269 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFzrFHqszQM

Use these exercises instead of kipping
User avatar #19315 to #19314 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
That's for if you can't do ANY pull ups and have to resort to doing motions that mimic it to get used to the movement. Notice I said Kipling isn't for beginners. If you can't do a pull up, you're worse then a beginner. You're a novice and shouldn't be Kipping.
User avatar #19316 to #19315 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
But like I said
Stupidity + danger = do a lat pull down instead.

If you honestly cant rep out that last set of pull ups, work your back in other ways and dont try to count something that isnt a pull up.
User avatar #19317 to #19316 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
You aren't reading anything I'm saying are you?

Kipping is not dangerous unless you are a beginner, this is a technique that should be used by people who are not beginners.

Yes you can move to another back exercise if you are just trying to work back. If you want to get bigger and stronger with pull ups (which are far superior then most other back movements) you should use it only when reaching failure. Getting off the bar and doing rows isn't going to help you do more pull ups with more weight.
User avatar #19318 to #19317 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
You still haven't told me what not being a beginner dictates.

Am I a beginner?
Getting off the bar is gana help you ACTUALLY work out and not pretend like you do 400 pull ups.

As for if your a beginner by a professional standpoint, there are as many opinions as there are assholes, but this article has probably the best definition I've seen when it comes to if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced. You definitely aren't a novice since you've been lifting for a year.
User avatar #19319 to #19318 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
You are probably still a beginner because I'm only a lower intermediate. From your pictures I've seen, I probably have 25 pounds on you at least. Not ripping on you or your progress, just what I've observed.

And doing 20 strict pull ups with a 40 pound weight vest is a Damisimpressive feat and doing that will build a godlike back.
User avatar #19271 to #19269 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
But you dont look stupid doing push ups.

User avatar #19272 to #19271 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
I don't think you look dumb doing bodyweight overhead presses. I think it looks impressive.
User avatar #19273 to #19272 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
To do it without a wall to rest against, sure. But otherwise? Ive never seen someone do a handstand push up that looked good doing it.
User avatar #19274 to #19273 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
Have you ever actually tried it? I can't really convince you that it's not ugly looking, but I think there are sillier looking things you can do. I struggle to do sets of ten if I try it on occasion.
User avatar #19275 to #19274 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
I've tried and succeeded.
to do 5 with no support.
And I gotta say, its a stupid, more risky, none impressive, way to get your balls hanging out of your shorts.
User avatar #19284 to #19275 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
Looks like someone's afraid of getting swole.
User avatar #19301 to #19284 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
I mean think of it this way.
I could do finger curls for that forearm strength.
Or I could go over to the benches by the free weights, pull down my pants right next to you
and jerk off looking myself in the mirror.

"I'm working out my forarm!"
Ya, well there are other, better ways to do it.
User avatar #19302 to #19301 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
Well I agree that there are better ways to do it, since overhead press does the job nicely. But it's still a legit exercise, and if you don't have a gym to go to or proper equipment then it'll work just fine for you.

Wrist curls for forearm strength? Not the best example.
User avatar #19304 to #19302 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
Its like cross fit in my mind.
twice the stupidity, twice the danger of doing an overhead press.

And I ment finger curls.
Its what I do for forearms sometimes.
User avatar #19306 to #19304 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
Well to he honest, cross fit has been largely proven to be amazing for strength and size in a short time period. Just that the intensity is so high that you can't do it for longer then say 3 months without overtraining and crashing (this is coming from someone who used to be the anticrossfit guy, then I had to basically eat my words).

And they're essentially the same. You can just either do them standing behind your back or in front of you while sitting. Both really aren't that great. You're better off doing Kroc rows, dumbbell rows, or deadlifts for lots of reps. Those shred my forearms more then anything, and it was a bitch to get mine stronger since I have such long arms.
User avatar #19307 to #19306 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
Well I'll wait till I eat my words then.
Or at least ill wait until the guy on the pull up bar stops doing his 1000th "kip" and maybe he will manage to do 1 pull up.

And for forearms I usually just grab a bar, slap some weight on it, and do a timed hang with an alternating grip. Or I do a dead mans hang.
User avatar #19308 to #19307 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
I've actually read how kipping, while ridiculous, has its uses. That you should use it when trying to get max reps off of the pull up. So you'd do strict pull ups for failure, then kip or cheat for another ten. So next workout you should be able to strictly do another pull up or two before failing. They can be considered partial reps. One thing I've learned is to never bash something because it looks or sounds silly. Because you could actually use it to your advantage as one point. I've kind of had to do that with a few elements in cross fit.
User avatar #19309 to #19308 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
But like my previous argument.
Why do something that not only looks stupid, but is dangerous.
When something else is right around the corner.
I wana work out back but I cant do one more pull up? great there is a row machine, lower the weight.
User avatar #19310 to #19309 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
Kipping is only dangerous when your shoulders are not strong enough to handle to extra force on the joint. Beginners shouldn't do them at all. Plus a row machine does not benefit the pullup. Just like the bench does not benefit the pushup.
User avatar #19352 to #19310 - TokenWhiteKid (10/19/2014) [-]
no one should kip ever

Kipping is absolutely retarded
User avatar #19356 to #19352 - marinepenguin (10/19/2014) [-]
I don't kip. But if you read the article I posted somewhere in this thread. You'll see that it has its uses as a partial rep to supplement pull ups.
User avatar #19311 to #19310 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
The major muscles worked are still the same.

It does not benefit that one specific exercise, but it does give you strength and gains in the same area.

And I'm sure the pull up does not get benefited by kipping.
#19343 to #19311 - KungFuZerO (10/18/2014) [-]
I was on marinepenguins side up until the end. Kipping has no place in anybody's routine, and crossfit is a load of horse shit and everyone knows it.
Regardless of any "benefits" of kipping, there are a ton of exercises that can strengthen the muscles involved in the pullup that are ten times less dangerous than kipping.
User avatar #19313 to #19311 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
www.t-nation.com/training/kipping-pull-ups-the-truth

Thibeaudeau is possibly one of the most reliable people on the whole site. He went from anticrossfit hater, to someone who actually uses variations of the cross fit wods for periods of time to increase strength and size.
User avatar #19312 to #19311 - marinepenguin (10/18/2014) [-]
Works the same muscles yes, but if you want to get better at pull ups you won't be doing rows. You have to do pull ups to get better at pullups. and if you get stuck? Do partial reps. Kipping is just an easier pull up, making it a partial rep. If you cannot continue to do pull ups in a set, start skipping so pump out more reps. I'll even link you the article about it just to show you.
User avatar #19247 - nustix (10/17/2014) [-]
Hello there, I'm here looking for some advice bet you didn't hear that one before I was wondering how effective strength training is for weightloss. I'm a kind of chubby guy and I want to lose some weight. So I went to the gym, but honestly I can't bothered with threadmills and hometrainer shit. So I was wondering whether strength training is a waste of time when your first priority is losing weight over gaining muscle.
I hope this is not a really retarded question, but I'm not really familiar in this scene.
User avatar #19384 to #19247 - haroldsaxon (10/19/2014) [-]
Cardio is way better.

Knowing your weight, and how active of a person you are, helps. If you're a really active person, even though you don't work out, means cardio won't work

I recommend going for walks, and some jogging. Cycle more. Cutting down on things that are just unhealthy (substitute chips/chocolate for fruit and nuts). You don't have to sacrifice too much in terms of regular diets, though, just hold back snacks and soda. Still do some strength training, but to gain muscles as goal.


Obviously, jogging, and more exhausting exercise is the fastest way to go. The easiest way is to go for a walk every day, and slowly building up, while doing some heavier exercise regularly, but not as frequent.
User avatar #19386 to #19384 - nustix (10/19/2014) [-]
I'm going to the gym either way, so in that case thread mills and hometrainers should be my priority or are you saying I could do strength training than like twice a week in the gym, but to really lose weight I should do some jogging at the same time.
User avatar #19387 to #19386 - haroldsaxon (10/19/2014) [-]
Short: Go to the gym 2-3 times a week. Jogg every day, or at least the remaining days.

Looking for outdoors activities available near you would be my best suggestion, to both get fit and lose weight. Gym is great for that as well. Not as well for cardio and to lose fat, but better in terms of muscle gain.

It all depends on how serious you are. Go to the gym 2-3 times a weak, go for runs the rest of the time is great. You can use the thread mill as well, but be really careful. They'll fuck your knees up if you overdo it.

Skiing, hiking, mountain climbing and all of that good stuff is great. The reason I like to recommend that, is that that is easier for a lot of people. It's often more motivating, more fun, and doesn't seem as much as exercise. Just going for runs is much easier, but demand more willpower.

Personal trainers are for motivation, mostly. Get a habit of jogging, or find an activity you like.

You can also look at your diet. My dad lost 20KG from cutting back on Coka Cola, so yeah
User avatar #19389 to #19387 - nustix (10/19/2014) [-]
I already cut back on my diet, but I guess I will just hit the gym and go jogging I live in the Netherlands so hiking is not that exiciting and skiing and mountain climbing are impossible. I might go do a sport like ultimate frisbee which is rather exhausting but I can only do that once a week. Thank you for the advice, I guess there is no way around cardio like excercises.

Work large muscle groups. Especially legs. And don't listen to anon. 1400kcal is the bare minimum for males. And low carb diets are shit.
Just eat 500 less calories per day than your daily average. Use an online TDEE calculator to find your daily average.

Strength =! Muscle mass
Muscle mass = calories need daily

Strength training will not help with burning fat, besides the actual act of the work out.
Should you want to burn fat, do a body building or aesthetic form of working out. The more muscle your body has, the more calories you need to have to keep that body. There for using up your fat stores on your body.

But to be brutally honest there is no point in asking that question.
because no offence, you are fat for a reason, and that reason is you are lazy.
meaning that you will not even use this advice and probably not even work out.

If you are actually working out or have been or will for more then a month color me impressed, but I doubt it.

Ill still give advice though.

I don't mind working out, but I quit doing it because my buddy who I used to train both in tennis and in the gym moved away. I'm currently 75 kg and 1.76 m you can't see I'm fat unless I pull up my shirt which is still fat, but not the kind of "I'm obese that's why I will never run kind of person". Thank you for the advice I will see if I can prove you wrong.

and sorry if I misunderstand you, but what you are basicly saying is that a bodybuilding form of workout is more effective than strength training, because I put on more muscle? I would have thougth that strength training would also result in muscle gain?
User avatar #19303 to #19296 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
Well it does.
Just not as effectively.

however like I said
strength does not equal muscle mass.
Like for instance look at pictures of strongman competitors, vs body builders.

The body builders have WAY bigger muscles, but that arnt stronger in anyway.

It because of diet, training, water weight, supplements ect.

and a body builders set up would be like
dumbell curls
15 reps 5 sets, 30 pounds.
while a strong man set up would be like
dumbell curls
6 reps 4 sets, 80 pounds

Repetition builds definition and size
weight builds strength.
User avatar #19305 to #19303 - nustix (10/18/2014) [-]
Ah I see, so with strength training I will actually train for strength results, which does not equal larger muscle mass. While body building training forms will result in the highest muscle mass but not necessarily in overall strength, but it will help me lose weigth.

There's just one thing that confuses me, if muscle mass does not equal strength what does? Do you just train different muscle groups when body building or does more mass not equal more muscle strength?
User avatar #19242 - littlebangaa (10/17/2014) [-]
I just started and i got a pretty decent beginner routine going, i was just curious as to what kind of supplements i should be going with? ( if any). I don't want to be a brick shit house but i want to get some pretty decent muscle in there, also curious on anyone else's beginner routines?
#19438 to #19242 - KMD (10/19/2014) [-]
In my experience over the last 7 years of sport specific training and powerlifting I can say that there is not a single substitute for real food in terms of healthy effective calories like protein, carbs, and fat. Now as far as I have seen it is extremely beneficial to pick up some sort of daily multi-vitamin.

Hit 165 deadlift, thinking about doing more of them, but lighter just to help with technique throughout the week.
However, I took off the "bitchpads" for squat and my weights have gone down from hittign 120-140 to 100-110. Fucking awful, but needs to be done I guess. My aim of 150 is out the window
And my bench is now back at 90kg, so not bad. Only 10-20 more and I'll be happy
Can't seem to do OHP at all though, my back seems to arch too much. Even 50kg is too much for me, and I shoulderpress that sat down.

For standing shoulder press, squeeze your glutes hard. It takes all the weight off your back. Its amazing, try it.

I worked out for lots of reasons. I was in sports all my life so I've always been active. Started lifting because I was a skinny kid and wasn't happy about it. Now I've gained 50 pounds and I'm happy with myself. But recently I've joined the USAF Air Guard so I've also added in running, pushups, and sit ups to my routine to be able to pass standards. I'm hoping I'll be able to score a 100 on my test and exceed in training, not just get by.
User avatar #19211 - hsm ONLINE (10/17/2014) [-]
So i was reading up on 5x5 workout and was thinking bout trying it but i have a question before i start. It says that you need to add 2.5 kg weight every workout. But how? the smallest plate is 2.5 kg. You can't just add 2.5 kg to an exercise.

For example if you're doing a 30 kg bench press and you do 5 sets of 5 reps. Next time you do that you have to add 2.5 kg which is 1 plate. So you just add it to 1 side of the barbell? Or does it mean add 2.5 kg to both sides of the barbell making it 5 kg heavier every workout?
User avatar #19279 to #19211 - the one and only ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
You you been looking it up.

For most work outs I add 1.25 kg plates to the side, you're gym has absolutely none?

And for dead lifts just add 5 kg everytime you complete a set.
User avatar #19297 to #19279 - hsm ONLINE (10/18/2014) [-]
yeah the smallest weights in my gym is 2.5 kg plate.

It doesn't really matter to be honest. Its just saying move up in the smallest increment. If you don't have smaller weights, add 2.5kg plates to each side, and if you can't lift it, follow the instructions for failing a lift. Never add weight to just one side of a barbell.
User avatar #19213 to #19211 - marinepenguin (10/17/2014) [-]
I have weights that go from 2.5lbs, to 5, then 10 then 25, 35, and 45. You may just have to buy those smaller weights. They'll be cheap. Usually a little under a dollar a pound.
User avatar #19212 to #19211 - marinepenguin (10/17/2014) [-]
My smallest plates are 1.2 kg or 2.5 pounds. When I get a weight for 5 sets of 5 I'll move up 5 pounds the next week.

I was wondering for some time now. I'm 6 foot 8, I weigh 289 as of right now. What would the right weight be for someone like me? also if you're fat and you slim down will your face slim down as well?
User avatar #19217 to #19208 - chiktikkavaspaus (10/17/2014) [-]
You'll definitely slim down in the face of you lose weight. I lost 100lbs and people hardly recognize me just based on the face alone.
User avatar #19209 to #19208 - marinepenguin (10/17/2014) [-]
Im 6'3 and my normal weight was around 150-170, so at your height I'd think a healthy weight would be anywhere from 180-200. And Your face will slim down some.
User avatar #19210 to #19209 - auroloon (10/17/2014) [-]

200 at 6'8 is pretty low. My cousin is 6'3 at like 185-200 and he looks pretty skinny. I'm 215 at 6'2 and I'm just torso-fat (imo). I'd think that 210-230 with decent muscle mass would be good for your height.

I'm pretty sure I saw this story on FJ so it's a flgrant repost but aw well. Fat acceptance shouldn't be accepting morbidly obese people any more than accepting 3 pack a day smokers.

Ah, that makes complete sense. Be prepared for glorious noob gainz.

Best advice you could get this early on, is just focus on improving bench squat and deadlift. If you're getting stronger on all of those, your physique will reflect that pleasantly.

User avatar #19238 to #19236 - studbeefpile (10/17/2014) [-]
Oh, then focus on improving push-ups, chin-ups, and squats.

By yourself? Nah, you got the brahs on this board. The smartest thing you could do would be to ask these people lots of questions. I've been doing this for a while now, and Marinepenguin is pretty knowledgeable too.

Yeah but when I mean at home I mean lifting at home fyi.
And I've probably asked marinenigga like 100 questions by now. The only problem with doing by yourself is that no one can correct you or help with super heavy lifts so it is slightly dangerous but I don't give a squat.

Had shoulder surgery 10 weeks ago now. Finaly got cleared for push-ups!

Baby steps haha. I just can't wait to get back in a gym and do something real again. Probably still two months away. Shoulder surgery took away my ability to squat and deadlift as well. It's sad just been doing rubber band rehab work, and then things like pistol squats and leg presses.

Got my eating under control and loosing weight steadily (if a few binge hiccups in there) past 2 months so I should be to a place were I can be comfortable doing a 10 pound bulk to get lost muscle back on after Christmas time.

What is some stuff that you didnt expect to see or happen when you started working out?
Could be anything. Ill start with a few.

Gym people are probably the nicest people I ever met. Seriously some of the smartest/coolest people I have talked to in a long time have been at the weight rooms.

If you have good aesthetics, people who probably never work out go out of their way to test your strength. "Bro let me hit you as hard as I can in the stomach" "Arm wrestle me bro!"

Girls will do literally almost anything to see a guy with a good six pack and a deep V.

Collar bones are apparently an attractive thing?

How big you are is almost not at all directly involved with your strength. I've seen small guys bench 4 times what I squat, and big guys struggle with 150lb dead lifts.

This one might come as a surprise, but actually not treating your body like shit, eating healthy, and working out for just 2 months can change your entire look.
User avatar #19204 to #19143 - jokerjack (10/17/2014) [-]
I'll just disagree on the 6pack and V. Sluts will do anything. The amount of cute girls you see with boyfriends with less than ideal physiques smashes your theory.

Mine wasn't going from never working out to starting. I had always hit the gym decently regualriy but was a big guy, then I shed all that excess weight and ended up shredded for about 8 months.

-Accepting compliments on your looks is extremely hard
-You enjoy it more when your close buddies give you shit about it
-Buying all new clothes is fucking expensive
-having to pull back out the size bigger clothes you had shelved is one of the worst feelings in the world. If you get to a point, don't lose it and have to regain it
-You realize how much less often you're tired throughout the day, and realize eating right and working out has more to do with it than amount of sleep
User avatar #19145 to #19143 - marinepenguin (10/16/2014) [-]
You hit the head on a lot of things.

Gym culture is possibly one of the most intelligent and hard working group of people I have ever had the pleasure of being around. Muscley people have the stereotype of not being very smart, but I find most people who are extremely well off physically have had to be very smart to get in tune with their bodies and grow and get strong like they have.

Girls do absolutely love guys with abs and a V cut, but you know what they like more? A guy with a nice ass, wide back, and chest that can rival their breasts. Seriously, girls love guys who have a bulkier yet lean look to them over then V cut and 6 pack guys.

People started treated me differently, when I used to encounter certain people, they treated me more like a kid, and they almost talked down to me. Now I have people talking to me and they treat me with respect almost right off the bat.

I'm very surprised at how often people consider others to be on "roids", and now it's even worse whenever I look at the same guy and don't even think he looks like he lifts.

If you eat too few calories, your body will start consuming more muscle mass at a much higher rate than if you were eating at a small deficit. Say your body needs 2000 calories and you eat 1800, your strength and muscles would mostly be maintained bu if you're eating 1000 calories a day, say goodbye to any muscle mass you have

The 50lbs I lost was over the span of 5 months. It's very easy for me to cut weight quickly, however I prize glorious strength gains over being at a low bf%, so I haven't gotten shredded yet. However, like I said, I am cutting now for the sake of seeing what I look like a bit leaner.

Chest is massive. I have good chest genetics, bench has always been a somewhat strong point for me (relatively anyway). In my last meet in august I benched 255 (w/pause of course).

Abs are thick as fuck, and completely invisible. I'm still rocking bearmode (still kinda fat), but I squat and deadlift heavy, hit 445 dl in last meet as well. Actually going to be cutting down now to around 190 (208 right now), so we'll see if they pop out then.

User avatar #19226 to #19220 - mendelevium (10/17/2014) [-]
I made sure to look up everything there is to know about bulking.
I don't put nothing in my body unless I know what it is, how it works, what ever.
And of everything I read it seems not only more effective, but just easier to do a lean bulk.

I have put on a tad bit more chub because of creatine and protein powder, so thats what I consider bulking.

Not only that my body was never ment to be big, I'm 6'3 and have been skinny my whole life, I'm trying to be as big as I can, but genetics will limit me at one point.
User avatar #19283 to #19226 - TokenWhiteKid (10/18/2014) [-]
You don't know what you're talking about. You don't need special chemicals to bulk, you just need to eat 500 more calories than you burn a day.

creatine and protein powder won't make you big, ever. It's a supplement to help you get big if you actually do bulk.

User avatar #19299 to #19283 - mendelevium (10/18/2014) [-]
I never said that you need "Special chemicals to bulk".
also
Creatine makes your body gain water weight.
and protein powder is 150 cal per serving. x3 for each meal.

Alone they wont make you bulk, but they will help. You obviously dont know how to read.
