Is there anything (besides surgery) that can be done about loose/excess skin? It's not horrible like I got lipo or something but it's upsetting having it after all the diet and exercise.

Skin will get tight again on its own after some time passes... But get swole and fill with muscles.

I think that lifting weights helps. I might be wrong about that.

I started 5x5's at the beginning of this year because I kept falling off from splits I had come up. The other day I benched 135 lbs for the first time in my life and tomorrow I'll be squatting 200 (not sure if I managed that back in high school). I know it's not much to most here but my skinny ass feels accomplished so far.

I just reached 145 after only being able to bench 70 a month ago. Be proud every time you go up.. It means you're doing good.

Blood pressure increases when you lift weights, some people just get red faced. Personally I don't.

So lets say you put a 25 lb plate on both sides of a barbell. Are you lifting 69lbs or 94lbs?

A 45 pound barbell would make it 95 pounds. 45+25+25 equals 95

So, this is something I don't talk much about anymore.
I've struggled with my weight almost my entire life. Up until I was about 19 years old, I was clinically obese. Some factors were out of my control, many were my own ignorance. And for the most part, I've always been self-conscious about my weight and appearance. When I was 20 years old, I began my journey to finally get myself into shape. From various nutritional supplements, to different eating habits and exercise habits, I tried everything I could to find something that worked for me, yet I always seemed to overthink myself out of striving for goals. Lately, I began trying a new approach of just not overthinking things and just doing it. I've started going back to the gym 2-5 times a week and I've changed my eating habits. Over the last month of this new approach, I've found myself truly enjoying the ride and just going with the flow and I feel like I've finally found the right method for myself. I'm so much happier, healthier and I feel so much better about myself and have more energy than I ever have in my life. And although I'm not 100% where I want to be, noticing the progress is just as exciting.

75 in total, but gained 25 in muscle. When I lost all the easy fat, I realized I had no muscle tone because I almost never exercised. Needless to say, I changed that habit quick.

Thank you, man.
Here's another one that shows how scrawny I was before I started going to the gym.
I don't know how to describe it, I was just smooth. I wasn't fat, but I had very little muscle tone so nothing stood out.

I understand what you're saying. I went from being chubby to being scrawnier than you are in the picture to the right. Plus, I'm about 5'8 so I feel the scrawniness was a bit amplified. I haven't been lifting that long so I still have quite some way to go, but I definitely understand what you're saying

Any new record is worth getting excited about. Keep it up, youll do double your body weight unless youre 50kg already then aim for 3x your body weight on dl.

Thinking about getting cut, know a good deal about lifting but not enough about dieting (I try not to eat high octane crap and get enough protein but I've never measured it), there a good way to maintain around the same muscle mass while losing fat? (I know there will always be some loss when you go lower calories but I don't want to lose too much)

I don't mind if it's slow going, I've learned patience.

hlp pls

Honestly, the best way would be to not go crazy on your caloric deficit. If you instantly just drop your calories way down, it's going to affect your cut negatively. Other than that, eating enough protein, taking BCAAs, and possibly throwing in some HIIT cardio are great ways to preserve muscle during a cut.

I've lost about 12 pounds while here already. I'm eating maybe 5000 calories a day from what I can average out, and I down PBJs and protein shakes before bed, but my activity level is so high from training that I'm still losing weight. I don't mind too much, since I'm lifting weights and pretty much gonna get shredded from all the lifting and running I'm doing.

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advise. So I've been doing strength training and martial arts for a while now and I decided that it was time for me to move from strength training to something a bit more specific for my goals. I was wanting to do strength movements followed by calisthenics for body mobility, strength, and power. I was going to use my martial arts, jump roping, and sprinting for conditioning. My big issue is that I don't want to spend too much time in the gym(as it will take away from my martial art), but I firmly believe that strength and conditioning are important to martial arts. Any advise in how i should organize it? I was thinking a 3-4 day gym split with 3 or so days of conditioning.

Should've done farmers carries with the other hand. You're elbow might be 95% messed up, but your hand is still a 5%er. #8hourarmworkout

Hit 315 squat again tonight, this time for two singles, both of which felt great. Planning on going for a double sometime next week. Followed it with 4 sets of 300 singles, form was practically perfect according to spot

Supplement store I got my usual Whey and decided on God of Rage for pre. Flavors were a choice between Wrath Berry or G-Rape. Will give opinions on it tomorrow

Hit my first 315 squat since September the other day, did it with a pause and it flew right up. Felt like I could do more but my partner was done warming up so I cleaned up to start benching. I feel like I easily could have done more, and even more on top of that had I been running on anything more than a coffee cake and a glass of milk. Bench was just tempo volume at 185, followed it all with a 405 triple on a straight bar deadlift, meaning my trap bar work has translated over wonderfully. And to top it all off, I'm sub 300 for the first time since last March. Feeling bretty gud right now

Anyway, I need opinions on protein and pre workout. I'm out of protein so that's a necessity, and lately at the gym I've been practically falling asleep after like the first exercise, so I thought I'd go with pre instead of needing a Red Bull or something before every workout. My dad said just get more sleep and stop watching cartoons at 4am but fuck that he doesn't even bench lmao 1pl8 what does he know. For protein I was thinking of just going with the usual Gold Standard Chocolate, it's cheap considering how long it lasts, it works fine, and the taste is bearable speaking of which, NEVER use Russian Bear 5K in Vanilla flavor. I got it over the summer and it was fine for a day, but the vanilla is just so ridiculously strong it's disgusting . Pre is where I'm unsure, I used to take C4 but was told that it's actually really toned down and not worth the price

my personal advice, buy unflavoured whey protein.

Even without any flavour its kinda nice. and if you want a flavour, you can add one yourself, purchase flavoring powders seperately from a supermarket or cooking shop or something

add some instant hot chocolate powder, and you've got a chocolate shake. but you've also got the option to NOT have a chocolate shake if you're sick of chocolate

Gold standard double chocolate is great.

As for preworkout, just don't take anything thats sketchy "proprietary brand". C4 is solid.

C4s okay in my opinion. It's like the basic preworkout loaded with extra carbs and sugars for good taste. Personally I like stuff like Neon, Mr.Hyde, #Shatter SX-7, or even M1 extreme preworkout.

How do i get motivated? Im a chubby girl, i dont look very fat but weigh in around 198 lbs. Even my friend jokingly calls me fat and i really want to lose this weight. I bought a gym membership, but thats still not pushing to to stop being a fat lard. Any tips?

Honestly, getting motivated is all up to you. Think about the things that your weight keeps you from doing/enjoying. Think about what youd look like at a lower weight. Focus on how you feel when you get called fat. Only once you're motivated and honest with yourself will you see the change you want.

I download my favorite shows to my phone and allow myself to watch them only while doing cardio. It works for me. Pintrest also has a shit ton of crap too! Helped me lose 15 lbs so far, and I have another 30 to go. Once you start seeing results that will motivate you even more.
