I've been lifting weights every day for the past two weeks now. I'm still a newbie to all this, but is it normal to feel rage towards your exes every time you workout. Because that wasn't my motivation to begin with, but it happens every time.

great job, keep up the good work, but dont lift every day, let your muscles relax,

you should have 1-2 rest days

You'll get over it. I first really started working out because my ex dumped me for another guy. Next time she saw me I was 25 pounds heavier and tried to talk to me again, and that was another 15 pounds ago. Now she knows I'm out of her league.

After awhile it will fade and be replaced by the obsession of creating something badass and awesome from the body you have.

hey guise
15 years old, 5'10 (still growing) and 280lbs
just worked out for my first time alone yesterday and i plan on doing every day
I ran on the elliptical for 15 minutes, then did situps for 5 minutes, then 10 more minutes on the elliptical.
If I just eat fruit/meat will I lose a good amount of weight and be able to maintain a healthy body?
#16728 to #16724 - anonymous (08/12/2014) [-]
Go for a run as well. It's one of the best ways to lose it.

If you're no good at running, start by doing a couch to 5k thing. Gimmicky, but it worked for me.

Do you guys like push-press or military press better for gaining strength in the deltoids? Honestly I've replaced my push press with military press and I've been progressing pretty fucking fast and I'm more satisfied with the strength in my overhead press.
User avatar #16715 to #16712 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Military press, push press is an Olympic lift and uses your entire body, although you can use more weight.

Military press uses only the delts and triceps, so it's great.
User avatar #16716 to #16715 - unncommon (08/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, but I know a lot of people who would advocate for the push-press being superior in deltoid deployment due to explosiveness and the emphasis on Type IIB muscle fibers.
User avatar #16717 to #16716 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
I agree with that, which is why I made the point of using more weight. Olympic lifts are great for building up large areas of the body, they're fantastic at that. But if you are talking strictly deltoids, I'll go for the isolation movement over the compound movement. I like doing the push press much more though.
User avatar #16719 to #16717 - unncommon (08/12/2014) [-]
Also, have you heard about bench press being counter productive to strength because of its effect on the shoulder blades? I'm not taking it out of my routine but it's interesting to hear.
User avatar #16722 to #16719 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
I've never heard that, no. But I've heard how it's healthier to do weighted pushups because it allows your shoulder blades freedom of movement during the actual movement itself.
User avatar #16718 to #16717 - unncommon (08/12/2014) [-]
I said the deltoids but I'm also talking about the advancement in overhead press. I'm training for strength/functionality and they're both compound lifts, but the push press does use more muscles when compared to the military press. Since I'm training for functionality and not pure strength (a.k.a. explosiveness) I think that the military press is better for me.
User avatar #16723 to #16718 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/12/2014) [-]
Oh I see, well Military and Overhead press are very similar, so training for one will help the other.

But I do know that if you are looking for explosiveness then Olympic lifts are the best thing you can do, just because it promotes fast movements throughout every part of your body. I would continue to do push presses, and then supplement it with military presses. But that's just me, if you feel like the presses itself are doing it for ya then by all means go for it.

Alright, so I started working out about 4 months ago. I am 16, I weighed ~240 when I started. I have worked out EVERY day since, I might have missed a day or so from vacationing, but other than that, I have not missed a day from stupid excuses. Now, I weigh 223 lbs. I have noticed a reduction in belly fat, and an increase in muscle definition. I don't have six pack abs or super cut muscles, but I have seen a difference. So for anyone here who wants to start working out, I wanted to tell you; I used to sit on my ass everyday, I used to eat whatever I wanted. I was a fat piece of shit. I have lost ~20 lbs, I feel great, and my confidence has shot up. The pains of being overweight are way worse than the pain of going to the gym. If you go to the gym, don't make it a chore, make it an activity. Make it something you HAVE to do. That's how it is for me at this point. I can't wait to go back after I've left. I wanted to share this here, because I feel like I needed to. Results are possible if you put your mind, and heart into it.

If you have trouble getting motivated, here's some tips I used.

-Surround yourself with fitness. Subscribe to fitness channels on youtube, subscribe to Men's Health Magazine, or TRAIN Magazine. Go to the gym with friends, and always discuss fitness with them.

-Always think about how many bitches you'll get when your ripped, or think about how easier life will be when you are ripped.

-Watch Pain and Gain. Just do it.

If anyone has any questions, or anything to say, please ask. I am here to motivate and help anyone. I am very far from my goal of 170 lbs, I would love to get there with others. I'd love to get there with THIS community.

Gonna start working out when I head off to college in a few weeks. Focused less on fat loss (6'1", just under 160lbs) and more on building muscle definition. Ran cross country for 7 years so I'll conitnue to do some running for cardio. Suggestions for excercises/routines or sites I can use to get good workouts? (More specifically ab definition excercises, since it seems lots of traditional ab exercises like crunches are shit)
User avatar #16684 to #16681 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Why do you want to lose fat? Unless you are skinnyfat then 160 is a good weight for 6'1.
User avatar #16685 to #16684 - bminous (08/11/2014) [-]
I don't
User avatar #16686 to #16685 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Oh nevermind I'm an idiot. I though you said focused on fat loss, not focused LESS on fat loss.

But wanting more muscle definition means having to lose fat. But that doesn't mean anything if you don't have much muscle mass. You'll have to gain muscle mass throughout your body and then diet down if you want to see a lot of definition.
User avatar #16687 to #16686 - bminous (08/11/2014) [-]
Fair enough. I could still use suggestions for exercises/workouts though
User avatar #16690 to #16687 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
If I were you I would go to the gym and focus on big lifts, as a beginner you don't need to worry about doing situps or ab movements at all. Just squat, bench, deadlift, and overhead press and you'll see improvement in every part of your body (even your abs).

Starting strength is a fantastic program for beginners and has gotten a lot of people bigger and stronger fairly quick.
User avatar #16694 to #16690 - bminous (08/11/2014) [-]
Awesome. Anywhere I can read up on this prior? I know I can ask people there who know what they're doing, but I'd rather not go in completely clueless

Been on a split for ages, usually doing chest and tris and back and bis. I've recently started doing Chest and bis at the start of the week and back back and tris at the end and found it preferable as I can hit bis harder.

Right now you are working your triceps 3 days a week.

I only see it twice?
User avatar #16683 to #16680 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
When you do chest, and shoulders you will work triceps as well. Nearly any pushing movement uses them.
User avatar #16689 to #16683 - scoobydoobydo (08/11/2014) [-]
Chest yes but not shoulders.
User avatar #16691 to #16689 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Yes shoulders, any pressing movement with the shoulders includes the triceps.
User avatar #16692 to #16691 - scoobydoobydo (08/11/2014) [-]
Do not feel anything but shoulders when doing shoulder movements. Military press, shrugs, raises all isolation in the shoulders.

www.simplyshredded.com/top-5-triceps-training-mistakes-how-to-correct-them.html look at #5.

Triceps are by far the easiest muscle to train. Whether you feel the movement in the triceps or not is irrelevant. I always feel my triceps working in all three of those days.
User avatar #16695 to #16693 - scoobydoobydo (08/11/2014) [-]
It said triceps get some work when locking out in presses. I don't lock out on presses lol.
User avatar #16701 to #16695 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Doesn't matter. Triceps are still involved in the movement.
User avatar #16704 to #16701 - scoobydoobydo (08/11/2014) [-]
I don't see it and even if they are they are being hit indirectly and only in ohp.
User avatar #16705 to #16704 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Whatever you say man.

Every single source I have says otherwise to back me up, along with my own personal experience. Every pressing movement includes the triceps to an extent, regardless of being a secondary muscle or not. I had really overtrained triceps, and once I toned it tone to two days a week I saw to real size and strength gains.
User avatar #16706 to #16705 - scoobydoobydo (08/11/2014) [-]
Your source say it activates during the lock. And I only do them twice a week.
User avatar #16708 to #16706 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Triceps work throughout the movement, they just peak at lockout.

Despite being a few pounds underweight I have a about an inch or so of fat on my stomach, it's enough to make belt buckles really uncomfortable when I sit unless I sort of sag my pants

Basically how do I rid myself of stubborn belly fat, and will I have to worry about saggy skin? Already doing crunches, this shit is murder on your spine so I can't do many at once
User avatar #16676 to #16665 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
You are underweight while remaining fat because you are skinnyfat. You need to gain lean muscle mass before you worry about getting rid of your excess fat.

Crunches are bollocks. I generally do Russian twists, Plank, Obliques (Farmer's walk, side plank) and use an ab wheel.

As for reducing fat, you just need to sort your diet out and do cardio. You can't spot reduce fat.

So i'm a 17yr old guy who was born with a heart condition called a bicuspid aortic value, which basically means that one of my heart valves is completely closed and another is half shut. So i have been going to a cardiologist for 7+ years now and every year i have gained more wait and my doctor is always coming down hard on me. So my next appointment is coming up in about a month. I need your guys help to aid me in surprising my doctor.

Yes lifting weights will burn fat. But before trying to do a bunch of cardio or training just change your diet. In the morning before you eat breakfast you can take a light walk. Your body should be catabolic and you will burn muscle and fat.

We have a treadmill in my house (which we recently purchased) but I haven't found the time between work. How much cardio will help me lose weight?
User avatar #16651 to #16650 - derpityhurr (08/11/2014) [-]
Well, like I said itd be best to ask your doctor how much cardio will help, though any will help in your fitness
Ive read from other posters here that weightlifting is actually more effective than cardio at burning calories, makes you more muscular at the same time and is less intense on your joints
Ive read this guide, I dont know how accurate or good the workouts are but it seems pretty intelligent: liamrosen.com/fitness.html
User avatar #16652 to #16651 - ashinydoornob (08/11/2014) [-]
So lifting actually burns more calories than cardio?

but will lifting take off the stomach fat that i have?
User avatar #16682 to #16652 - gunni (08/11/2014) [-]
Try to eat a lot of (healthy) protein like fish or eggs or steak and vegetables and oats and wild rice and good fats like olive oil or stuff like that. It actually tastes really great but is kinda expansive. thugkitchen.com is good for some recipes ('cept that pina colada ice cream, that tastes like shit).
Also building muscle will cause you to burn more calories because it is not just very exertive but also having larger muscles need more calories to maintain (e. g. when you sleep or rest).
User avatar #16703 to #16682 - ashinydoornob (08/11/2014) [-]
sorry to be asking so many questions but, is there like a specific routine i should try to follow?
User avatar #16709 to #16703 - gunni (08/11/2014) [-]
There is nothing really strict that you have to stick to
I regularly do body weight exercises, they are all you really need. I mean, back in the days the ancient Greek didn't do it differently and they were fit beasts (at least some of them).
I usually do push ups, pull ups, planks (try to get to 5min), jumped alternating lunges, but also balancing stuff as it also trains your body.
You can do push ups with your hands close together, far apart, one next to your chest on stomach level, with your feet on a higher surface, with your feet on a chair and your hands on chairs allowing you to go deeper, with one leg up in the air, on one arm.
If that's too much for you, you can start by leaving your hands on a desk or chair or what ever.
There are fucking many exercises, just look that you train many muscles in your training.
If you like, you can split up muscle groups (like today I did chest and back and hamstrings).
It is up to you what you do. You can find beginner's routines on web sites.
What is important at the start is that you don't use too much weight because your joints will be fucked and that is irreversible.

Anyone know how heavy a 18.4-38 sized tractor tire is? I wanna guess it's about 300 pounds, it's over 5 feet tall when on it's side. It isn't super thick though and isn't hard to flip, I'll flip it probably 20 times as fast as possible just for a conditioning thing.

I know you should have a tire 2 or 3 times what your weight is, so I want to get a big 600 pound tire that I can use for brute strength.

When you say conditioning, you don't mean cardio-strength do you? With weight that heavy times your body, that's more muscular-strength
User avatar #16659 to #16633 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Conditioning and cardio isn't the same thing. Cardio is long distance, jogging and biking are prime examples. Conditioning is short, fast, promotes muscle growth, and creates a much larger oxygen debt. So sprints, tires, prowler pushes, farmers walks, complexes, circuits, etc. Conditioning, in my opinion, is much better then running for several miles a day.
User avatar #16668 to #16659 - LtMcG ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
I wasn't suggesting running. I'm trying to grasp your idea of what conditioning is. I get soldiers coming in with a different perspective.

Conditioning will sure get you far and give you a hell of a body. As far as functional fitness ... I would disagree.
User avatar #16670 to #16668 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Well I guess it depends on what your goal is. If my goal was pure endurance then I would do cardio, if it was a mixture of endurance, strength, and speed I would do conditioning.

And that's fine, everyone can have their own opinion, can I ask why though?
User avatar #16710 to #16670 - LtMcG ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
I've seen studs come in and try to perform an obstacle course. They perform no better than others. It's not necessarily the act of the conditioning that winds them, but the confidence factor and mind games. For example, climbing a rope. Not many know how to do it properly. Or lifting yourself up a ledge. There are many ways to accomplish it, but very little ways to do it with minimum effort.
User avatar #16711 to #16710 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Well that is a bit different I would say. They may be in better shape, but if they have no experience climbing a rope or doing the specific activities of course they may struggle a bit more. I've done a lot of obstacle courses, ran a race called the tough mudder run (12 miles with an abostacle every 1/4 mile, including ice water, ropes, and electrical shocks) and I had no issues with any of the obstacles, it was more of a mental obstacle to overcome.

I don't think what you are talking about is necessarily a cardio vs conditioning issue, other then just an overconfidence or lacking in that specific skill. Also, a ton of big guys have terrible conditioning.

Ok so a few months ago i started Brazilian jiu jitsu and muay thai to get back in shape but when i go i sweat like a fucking waterfall and before it i never drank a lot of water so in short does any one have a good way to start drinking the right amount of water cause i know i can't just up water intake super fast or else will get sick.

Stop drinking sodas and shit and you won't get sick when you drink water.
Also look into getting distilled water from Wal-Mart, maybe you're allergic to the chemicals used to clean the water.

That is extremely strange. Like that's a day? Or all at one time?

Where do you live? It could really be chemicals, I know that in the US some states put really weird shit in their water like chlorine.
And some are even affected by fracking.

I'm starting a diet tomorrow. any tips? (I'm about 6'3 and 220 pounds)

Remove soda all together. Even diet

Large breakfast, small meals afterwards.

Avoid saturated fats and sugars.

There are good carbs. And then there a bad carbs. A good carb is a baked potato. A bad car is from french fries.

Focus more on veggies and fruit. Best time to eat that is in the morning and afternoon.

Avoid midnight snacking all together. This includes small bowls of cereal or chips.

Drink more water.

What sort of diet?
User avatar #16615 to #16614 - radfactory (08/10/2014) [-]
trying to lose fat and gain muscle.

I think he was looking for what changes you are making to your diet, as in what kind of foods you plan to eat, how many calories/day, is it low carb, is it very high protein, etc.

Well /fitness/, I somehow wrecked my back. Any remedies for sprains? My back has been really tender to the touch and had a huge knot in one of my spinal erectors so I had my gf massage it out yesterday. I thought I'd be fine today (back day, dunno how I injured my back on any other day unless it was from work) but shit burns like a mofo. Of course I couldn't let it rest though because it's back day (aww yisss) and I figured "hey, it really only hurts when I turn so maybe I can still deadlift" and man was I wrong. 135 warm up set - cake. 225 warm up set - no problem, kinda. 285 on my way to a working set - can't even lift the bar. Even getting into deadlift position starts to burn. The pain is very localized to this one spot. About one inch left of my spine and 3-4 inches under my shoulder blade. It's warm, has a knot, and burns when I barely touch it. Hope it's nothing more than a sprain but it's definitely not just a pulled muscle. how2fix?

Stay out of snap city.

I'd take it easy for a week or two, very little lifting. A spinal issue can quickly turn back and then possibly mess up for the rest of your life. It's better to suck it up and let it heal then to possibly fuck it up.
