Off the wall question, guys. I'm thinking of getting a motorcycle. All I do is make small commutes to and from work/class and I barely carry any luggage when I do.

Is riding a motorcycle known to affect your lifts, body, or fitness in any way?

From what I've heard the open air ride is anabolic as fuck.
#26929 to #26922 - anonexplains (02/25/2015) [-]
theres no point in getting a motorcycle unless you have a car. you can't carry groceries or anything of value with them and they only hold 2 people. they are purely aesthetic and hold little value unless you want to park it near a bike rack to save money on parking if you live in an area that functions like that.

So I've lost between 30-40 lbs within a year, and it seems I have quite a bit of loose skin/stubborn fat on my stomach. Is there any easy-ish way of fixing it?
User avatar #26921 to #26915 - methylgroup (02/25/2015) [-]
How old are you? Loose skin can fix itself to some degree as long as you are still growing. Building muscles will also help, as the additional bulk will fill out the skin but look much better than fat.

I've heard of some people using prescription topical HGH, but that and surgery are probably your last options, and don't do either without consulting your doctor first.
#26928 to #26921 - anonexplains (02/25/2015) [-]
16. My brothers are about 4 inches taller than me, so it's to be expected that I grow that much within a few years.
User avatar #26932 to #26928 - methylgroup (02/25/2015) [-]
I'd say have some patience and keep the weight off, and add muscle. It sounds like it might take care of itself.
#26919 to #26915 - anonexplains (02/25/2015) [-]
I forgot to ask: How do I tell the difference between loose skin and stubborn fat?
User avatar #26918 to #26915 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
You can help with that loose skin by building muscle, if you build muscle mass then your skin will fill out some. It may not fix all of it, but it could help. If it's too severe then it may never fully go away. And you can get rid of stubborn belly fat like that, but it's a lot easier if you have some muscle.
User avatar #26916 to #26915 - leal (02/25/2015) [-]
Loose skin= surgery
Fat= No.

User avatar #26948 to #26917 - studbeefpile (02/26/2015) [-]
Uhh, don't listen to him. He's wrong.

Loose skin -for the most part- will take care of itself in time, and is also aided by building muscle like penguin said.

Getting rid of fat is easy. Reduce calories, increase activity.

Funny how when I ask about forearm development, an article gets posted the next day.

>A weak grip can equal elbow pain. If you can't carry a load equal to your bodyweight in each hand for 15 meters, your grip sucks. Farmer's walks will help.

I'm supposed to carry 370 lbs 15 meters?


Is this thing for real?
User avatar #26911 to #26910 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
You can farmers walk with a ton of weight bro. But they said aim for more like 75% of your weight in both hands. Only issue I could see is actually getting the weight in a position to walk, if you can't deadlift that weight you'll have issues.

Jesus I think I need to start incorporating more forearm work into my workouts. Either my arms are huge or my forearms are terrible.
#26890 to #26889 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
Bad angle and also unflexed, just to be fair. However it can't ever hurt to have stronger hands!

My forearms are one of the few things about myself that I'm actually proud of. My forearms are comparable in size to my upper arms.
#26891 to #26890 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
Well it's all unflexed, I picked an unflattering angle on purpose. It also doesn't help that my forearms are long as fuck.

Regardless, I think I'll add in some kind of forearm movement every other day. I've noticed that my grip fails me more then my other muscle groups do.

Plate pinches are my #faaave

If you wanna be a boss, just add a few sets of plate pinches to failure at the end of every other workout. Forearms are small, and can be trained relatively frequently.

User avatar #26871 to #26853 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
I used to run 800 repeats some days, and then ran miles on other days, while throwing in some Sprint work every now and then. But my fastest mile ever is 5:48. I ran a 2:08 800 though.
User avatar #27021 to #26871 - swaqq (02/26/2015) [-]
I'm doing a qualification run for a race in April, the distance is 800 m. Any tips on how to train? seeing as you have a 2.08 800.
User avatar #27022 to #27021 - marinepenguin (02/26/2015) [-]
The 800 is possibly the most mental race out of them all, it takes more sheer mental toughness in my opinion than physical ability.

But when I was in track we did combinations of mile runs, 800 repeats at a 2:45-3:00 pace, 400 repeats as fast as possible, and even 100 meter sprints on occasion. It's harder to train for because it not quite long distance, but it's also not quite a sprint. So the best way to get better is just to do it often and try to improve every race.
User avatar #27023 to #27022 - swaqq (02/26/2015) [-]
I usually do 1000 meter intervals, down to 200. It's hard to get 100 meter sprints in the winter yaknow.
But did you do this every week, or did your training vary from week to week?
User avatar #27024 to #27023 - marinepenguin (02/26/2015) [-]
It's been a few years so forgive me if I can't remember details. I think we did 800 repeats nearly every week, and we did different specializations each week on top of that. So one week I think we did miles to build endurance, then another week we would do Sprint work to build speed. The 800 repeats allowed us to sort of put them together.
User avatar #27026 to #27024 - swaqq (02/26/2015) [-]
That's a respectable setup, thank you
User avatar #27027 to #27026 - marinepenguin (02/26/2015) [-]

#26864 to #26853 - baglesbites (02/25/2015) [-]
Im no pro when it comes to running but you probably need to prioritize sprinting for a little while. Work on your 40 and 100 yard speed for a while and then start progressing to a full mile.

Day two of my 12 week program. Turns out I'm a wuss and have no upper body strength.

anyways the real thing is I'm not sure I need to be eating all I am. aboy 3000 cal and 3-5 scoops of protein and junk. I just you need this to build mass... but is is really needed? Could I cut it out and still be jacked but just not as big?

User avatar #26868 to #26851 - nanako ONLINE (02/25/2015) [-]
you've got a complete wrong attitude here. This is pretty trinary.

1. You don't eat enough, you go nowhere. you won't get stronger or bigger or anything. you will just waste time.
2. You eat enough, you will get bigger and stronger and probably slightly fatter
3. You eat too much, you will get bigger and stronger at exactly the same rate as #2, but you will also gain lots of fat

how big you get in the end is a matter of time and effort. lots of time. you will NOT get too big by accident
User avatar #26865 to #26851 - Draigor (02/25/2015) [-]
Eat big to get big. You're kidding yourself if you think you'll get too big, that shit takes hard work.
User avatar #26857 to #26851 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
Nope. You need lots of food to fuel your body and progress. If you don't, your progress will drastically slow and even possibly completely stagnate. You aren't going to be "jacked" overnight.
User avatar #26850 - studbeefpile (02/24/2015) [-]
Turns out cutting weight while trying to maintain/refine strength ends up having a pretty difficult balancing act with food intake. Been sitting at 210 for the past week, but I guess that's okay. I'm still 6lbs down from where I started, and I'm finding the balance now. Here's to hoping I get below 200 by the end of march!
User avatar #26866 to #26850 - Draigor (02/25/2015) [-]
From what I've heard, its common to lose strength initially on the cut, but once you reach your goal and keep your bodyweight steady, the gains return.
User avatar #26860 to #26850 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
That's because you are rarely going to get stronger while your weight goes down. Your bench especially and your OHP is going to suffer the most. Then squats suffer a little, and DLs don't usually suffer at all.
User avatar #26862 to #26860 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
There are definitely ways to do it. I've seen it happen many times both with myself and others. With my current level of strength it's certainly within the realm of possibility to get stronger on a cut.
User avatar #26852 to #26850 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/24/2015) [-]

User avatar #26858 to #26854 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
That was before you lost the 50 pounds and had more fat to lose. You are a lot slimmer now. If you want to lose solid fat you'll have to aim for a couple pounds a week at the most. Or else you risk just losing mostly water weight and glycogen stores, which you'll gain back as soon as you get back to eating normally.
User avatar #26861 to #26858 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
I've gone from 250 to 200, back to 230, back down to 200, back to 220, etc. in the past 3 years now. I know what I'm doing.
User avatar #26863 to #26861 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
Goes against literally everything I've ever researched about weight loss. But I won't argue. You do your thing and if it works out, it works out. Same with the strength thing, with higher levels of strength you are actually more prone to fluctuations, not the opposite.
User avatar #26878 to #26863 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
I don't have a high level of strength though. I'm like a super novice-intermediate. Since I'm not super duper strong, it's within the realm of possibilities to get stronger while cutting. I did a lot of Hypertrophy work of this past quarter, and now I'm just refining my nervous system with the muscle I already built.

Also worth noting, I wouldn't be saying any of this if I hadn't actually done it in the past. Maybe I have good genetics, but it definitely works for me.
User avatar #26881 to #26878 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
Or you had a decent amount of muscle mass while you were at a higher percentage of body fat. You can shed fat like clothes when you are like that. It's just that when you get under 200 pounds and you are decently muscular, losing body fat is a whole different ball game. For your lifts, Your lower body should be fine in my opinion. But I think you're underestimating how much your bench is effected by your weight. Even as a novice, you can be affected. I've seen 250 pound football players lose 80 pounds on their bench as they cut down. They recovered after they started bulking again, but for a few months they were really struggling. That's just one example, but it's one of the most extreme ones I've seen.
User avatar #26882 to #26881 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
I think it's all a matter of how well it's done. There's only one way to find out, so we'll see.
User avatar #26884 to #26882 - marinepenguin (02/25/2015) [-]
Well alright. I just don't want to see you lose some strength, get discouraged, then stop your cut early. That's one big reason most people stop a cut. I'm not wanting you to fail is all, if you make it and it works out, then perfect. But I'm still going to interject with my opinion if I think it'll help or improve something. Just like I'd hope you would do the same for me. So don't take any of my comments as shitting on you or your knowledge.
User avatar #26885 to #26884 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
Absolutely man, I totally feel you. I enjoy breaking expectations of the norm though, so if people think it's difficult to maintain/gain strength on a cut, then dammit I'm going to do my best to do it.

Why not train in the most difficult ways? Wearing shoes DLing conventional instead of sumo stance or some other self controlled handicap will make your strong in time. Powerlifters who do this sort of thing can then peak for a competition without shoes and in a competition stance ect and make mad gains.
User avatar #26879 to #26874 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
There are different reasons behind sumo vs conventional. One isn't just inherently easier or harder than the other.....your point is true though.
#26880 to #26879 - baglesbites (02/25/2015) [-]
I personally am stronger in a sumo stance, always have been. I usually train in a conventional stance because I enjoy it more and it builds more mass in my upper back. When it comes time to test a max I switch over. I also recently found out Ed Coan used to do this and he is arguably the strongest power lifters pound for pound with a 901 deadlift in the 220 weight class. I'll probably never reach his level, but dammit I'm gonna try.
User avatar #26883 to #26880 - studbeefpile (02/25/2015) [-]
It has to do with limb lengths yo. It's different for different people. Sumo isn't just stronger for everyone, in fact the American Deadlift Record was set by Vince Urbank with a 906 pull conventional. A lot of lifters pull better conventional, it's just based on the length of your arms and femurs. People with long arms and short femurs will be much stronger conventional, whereas people with shorter arms and longer femurs (such as myself) will do better sumo. It's not that one is inherently stronger than the other for everybody, it just depends on what does better for your genetics. If you have better leverages for sumo, then you should train sumo and accessorize with conventional, and vice versa - especially considering they emphasize slightly different muscle groups.
#26887 to #26883 - baglesbites (02/25/2015) [-]
I understand the whole leverages thing. I was just stating that in my time lifting, I've found that I personally make the best progress using conventional for a bulk of my training. Conventional stance also translates a bit better to my squatting making it a touch better for total body development.
Most deadlift records are set using conventional stances, including the 1015 world record. Brian Shaw hit a high 900s DL in his Worlds Strongest Man training and he uses an unusually wide conventional stance. That may be due to his height, but it works for him.

lifting should only take 1-1.5hrs. You're either using too much time, taking it too slow or you're too lazy to do it/making excuses.

If you're dedicated to exercising, you'll find a way. The student-athletes at my university who major in stuff like chemical engineering and biomedical engineering always prove to me that you can be balance both if you really strive for it.
User avatar #26830 to #26829 - Draigor (02/24/2015) [-]
that you can balance*
User avatar #26825 to #26816 - methylgroup (02/24/2015) [-]
Maybe try some time management skills? Figure out when you're free for the day and dedicate that time to working out, just like you dedicate the other time to class.

Diet will make or break your workout, but then again shitty programming will yield shitty results. Losing weight can be all diet, but being in great shape is about 50/50 of each in my opinion.
User avatar #26824 to #26800 - methylgroup (02/24/2015) [-]
Yup, I was adding muscle when I worked out, but I didn't start losing fat until I started eating right.

Diet is a big deal.

can someone help me out with a diet plan for body building?

i know there's a lot on the internet but i'm looking for one that doesn't involve 100 fresh ingredients and hours of cooking, i'm a student so i don't have to space, time or money to constantly buy the stuff that they suggest so i'm looking for simple meals

if it helps i'm a skinny-ish build (6'1" and around 75-80kg) and am purely weight lifting to build mass, no cardio just a bit of casual football (soccer) and other light activity

User avatar #26826 to #26791 - methylgroup (02/24/2015) [-]
If you ever change your mind about wanting to cook, here's a badass cookbook. It's made for people on food stamps, or anyone who can't spend more than ~$126.00 a month on food so that they can eat healthy. It's free online, and it has a bunch of really healthy recipes.

From there, I'd say count your calories and your macros.

I'm still noob-y, though. Anyone feel free to correct/edit.
User avatar #26827 to #26826 - ieatbengay (02/24/2015) [-]
it's not really the cost so much its the fact that i'm living in student accomodation where i only have 2 cupboards (which need to store my plates, cutlery, pans etc, as well as food) and 1 shelf of fridge space which barely holds 1 week of milk, eggs and meat

but thanks for the link though some of that foods looks so good
User avatar #26815 to #26791 - leal (02/24/2015) [-]
just count the calories..

White rice, oatmeal, cheap bags of chicken breast, eggs, and spinach or green beans.

Roman noodles actually have a good amount of calories if you eat like 3 at once. And they are $1.

If you got cheap nuts in your area, they got a lot of protein, calories n fat.

So I went to the supplement store and picked up some new preworkout (i use it off and on) and they gave me this free sample packet. I tried it and not only did I not feel jittery, everything I did today felt light and easy. Did 235 for 20 on squats like nothing. Even my alternating sets of leg extensions and RDLs barely got me out of breath and I used less rest time then usual. At the end of my workout I even attempted heavy RDLs for 5 with 265 and that even felt super smooth and light.
User avatar #26787 to #26786 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/24/2015) [-]
.... or placebo
User avatar #26803 to #26787 - marinepenguin (02/24/2015) [-]
Plus I think I've taken enough preworkout to tell between a placebo and a real thing. This was better then any other preworkout I'd taken.
User avatar #26807 to #26803 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/24/2015) [-]
I may start taking preworkout too. Right now I'm just worrying about eating as much as possible.
User avatar #26808 to #26807 - marinepenguin (02/24/2015) [-]
Not a bad decision at all. Preworlout isn't really necessary anyways. It's just a good boost and allows higher quality workouts more often.
User avatar #26799 to #26787 - marinepenguin (02/24/2015) [-]
Could be. Although there are quite a few stimulants in it. Like kungfu said, if it works I can't complain.

Heavy benchin' today.   
   
Hit 250 for 6 singles, then a double because I felt like it (second rep was grinder as fuck though).   
   
OHP, 100 5x12 afterwards and some tricep push downs for good measure.   
   
 award for highest quality video of the year goes to.....   
   
Video is one of the singles at 250, the 5th or 6th I think. I chose to put it up because I wanted to show an example of how I set up, and how I use leg drive in the bench. I plan to do a higher quality video explaining it more and answering questions about it later on.

You using 100lb plates there? They would be mighty useful when doing heavy compounds rather than having to load and strip extra 45s.
User avatar #26802 to #26801 - studbeefpile (02/24/2015) [-]
nah, just 2 45s and some change.

hundos would be useful though.
User avatar #26790 to #26784 - Draigor (02/24/2015) [-]
Nice single. I used to keep my heels off the ground like that. When I got oly shoes, I went with heels on the ground and got soo much more leg drive.
User avatar #26793 to #26790 - studbeefpile (02/24/2015) [-]
I've tried both, and I prefer heels off. It's just more comfortable with me and my personal mobility. The fed I compete in allows it too, so I'm fine with it.

For those of you who are into hiit cardio, which is better? Running a mile with 30 second sprint and 30 second walk, or two miles with 2 minute walk and 30 second sprint?
User avatar #26820 to #26779 - xtwinblade ONLINE (02/24/2015) [-]
a jog with 15 seconds sprints, 30 second jog, 15 second sprint, 30 second job, 15 second sprint and 3 min jog, repeat until you clock in about 30 min.
User avatar #26783 to #26779 - marinepenguin (02/23/2015) [-]
For fat burning, the 30 second walk is better. Higher workout density means more fat loss.

There's a supplement store I started going to that's right across the street from my school, and the guys in there make me feel dumb and small. One guy has a massive beard, is 6'4, maybe 250 and leaner than me. It's super intimidating to try and hold conversations with these guys.

I want to be massive. I don't want to just look athletic. If I could reach 240 before I'm 30, I'll be happy.

But why?
User avatar #26773 to #26772 - marinepenguin (02/23/2015) [-]
Why not? I want to push my limits. I want to get stronger, as strong as my body will ever allow me to. What's so confusing about trying to be the biggest baddest motherfucker your genetics will allow?

The fact you arnt aesthetically pleasing?
BRAH

You wanna look like a lean skinny cunt that can dodge and run while doing flips n shit. Not some steroid lookin monster that aint aesthetic, fuck dat shit brah.
