I made a workout mix with energy-filled house songs, some people here might like it

User avatar #14139 to #14138 - marinepenguin (05/16/2014) [-]
I probably wouldn't use it for anything else other than cardio, I prefer heavy stuff.

Although the mix is awesome, I'm not proud to admit it had me dancing like an idiot for a solid 20 minutes.

What do you listen to? We might aswell have a music thread

Thanks! i appreciate it man

Maxed out today on power cleans after doing 6 sets of 3 at 185lbs.

While tired as fuck I managed to break 200 for the first time and got 205lbs. Almost managed to get 215 but couldn't get under it.

Sup guys. To the user that recommended I start doing wides to get past my pull-up plateau, thanks! I've noticed pretty immediate progress.
My goal right now is the same as it was before. I want to get around 20 pullups max and be able to do a muscleup in the future.
I've also adopted a new workout. I do a set of wide pullups, then pauses. Then the same pattern again.
Then I do pushups. Superman, no specific goal, and tricep pushups but with a little bit of air height, I want to get around 30 on those. I also remembered, post workout, that I neglected to do diamonds, so I'll be incorporating those as well next time.
Then I do an ab workout. I like it, I think the new pullup variations are going to be really helpful.
Also, has anybody heard of samurai pushups? They seem like good practice, but I feel like they'd fuck with your forearm if you did them frequently. That's about it.

User avatar #14129 to #14126 - newposterintown ONLINE (05/15/2014) [-]
More or less, 'cept I didn't do the whole curl, just push-ups from my forearms.
#14131 to #14129 - baworo (05/16/2014) [-]
I would recommend doing the whole spectrum of motion, more muscles will be involved - also for MU's ( Muscle Ups ) pullups = when you are comfortable with 12-15 Pull Ups you can start thinking about learning the technique with rubber bands - the most difficult is the transition at the top - movement of the upper body - when you will learn it do it without the rubber and use the acceleration from the legs to do the proper MU !
User avatar #14132 to #14131 - newposterintown ONLINE (05/16/2014) [-]
Wouldn't it be easier to wait around 20? I was aiming moreso like at least 18-20 before really going for it.

It your body you know it best - I for example like to push myself little bit, get out of the comfort zone more and more !

>I want to get around 20 pullups max and be able to do a muscleup in the future.
Once you can do 8-10 pullups easily you should start doing weighted pullups, being able to do a huge amount of regular pullups is no different from being able to squat 150lbs for 25 reps, sure it's impressive, but you'd be much stronger and more aesthetic if you could squat 300lbs for 5 reps
User avatar #14123 to #14121 - newposterintown ONLINE (05/15/2014) [-]
I know, that's why I'm starting wides and pauses. Then once I feel like I'm well with with those, I guess that's when I'll start adding weight.

Thoughts on the Keto diet? I wanna start it but I have a feeling my gains will be none existent after a month or two
User avatar #14122 to #14103 - theoriginaltyson (05/15/2014) [-]
I did keto for a while, didn't affect my gains at all Why would it? , and it's super good for cutting (because you feel full on less calories)
User avatar #14127 to #14122 - novarip (05/15/2014) [-]
You mind telling me what your diet was? Cause I have no idea what to eat as my diet is mainly carbs
User avatar #14128 to #14127 - theoriginaltyson (05/15/2014) [-]
It's easy to get a lot of variety on keto if you try hard enough, but I didn't really care and was fine with eating pretty much the same thing every day, here's what I usually ate:
Breakfast: bacon and eggs with a glass of low-carb milk (regular milk's got quite a bit of sugar added to it)
Lunch: Some sort of meat (chicken, beef, pepperoni sticks, etc), cheese stick, mixed nuts (be careful about seasoning they add, read the package), small amounts of fruit. and I'd just have water to drink
For an afternoon snack I'd have a banana usually
Dinner: The main portion of my dinner every night was meat. Usually had a chicken breast, or a steak, or a burger minus the bun. Fish is very good for keto too but I don't really like fish so I never have it. On the side I'd have a salad (No ranch!), and to drink I'd have more of that same low-carb milk that I had with breakfast (The chocolate kind is fucking tasty)
Remember that small amounts of fruits is completely fine on keto, fruits have dextrose in them instead of fructose which is processed in your liver so it doesn't throw your body out of keto or some shit like that I don't remember

hey fj fit board i got a question for you lifting bros. im looking for a good workout for belly fat, im not obese but i would like to loose a few pounds (50) and belly fat is really all i got.

my arms are not strong enough for pushups yet but im working those out to get there is there a good work out to burn off the belly fat?
#14114 to #14078 - lordketchup (05/14/2014) [-]
There's no such thing as spot fat reduction
You either burn all fat on your body or none

Just eat healthy, less calories, less carbs and do cardio as much as possible
#14110 to #14078 - Womens Study Major (05/14/2014) [-]
Start by cutting unhealthy calories and going for runs. Here is a good starting schedule for runs.

Day 1: 2 miles, Day 2: 2 miles, Day 3: 3 miles, Day 4: 2 miles, Day 5: 3 miles, Day 6: 3 miles, Day 7: 3 miles, Day 8: off, Day 9: 3 miles, Day 10: 4 miles

Take 1 day off every 14 days uping the milage or the amount of hills as you go. You might want to get a gps watch. I like the garmin ones but they can be pricey ($125)
User avatar #14106 to #14078 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
You can't lose fat in one place. To lose fat you have to lose it everywhere.

Diet alone can shed a lot of weight if you're heavy. Exercising as well, like simply walking every day, will only help.

As for the pushups, try to do pushups on a higher surface first (bench, ledge, chair, etc) and work your way down. You can also do pushups from your knees if you still need an extra step before an actual pushup.
#14098 to #14078 - Womens Study Major (05/13/2014) [-]
The most effective way you are going to burn fat it through a change in diet. Look up some various calorie counters on line to find your recommended calorie intake. If you are looking to lose fat cut about 500 calories off the number you need to maintain weight. Couple this with a solid workout and you should see progress. Keeps the percentage of fats in your diet to about 20%. Or about what the others on the page are posting. Hope this helps

Starting strength by Mark Rippe"ed"toe

Best book about lifting and how to start lifting, forms etc. Nothing will give you such gains like lifting and 55 Pounds ... Dude this will take you at least 3 months to do ( healthy way obviously ! ) I add in the picture how to calculate the diet calories intake ! ( from MH Training Guide 2010 Canada page 44 )
my example
"81 kg - 180 Pounds
158 Carbs - 4kcal /1g
180 Protein - 4 kcal/1g
90 Fats - 9 kcal/1g"

Kudos to you sir and start lifting
User avatar #14080 to #14078 - brotify (05/13/2014) [-]
Drink around 3 l of water a day (don't drink too much at once), run (start with intervals), cut away sugar.

Motivational article time by Chris Shugart

"Welcome to the suck." From the book and movie Jarhead.
In the tiny spare bedroom of my first house sat a bench, some adjustable dumbbells, and a few bars. There weren't many weight plates, because I didn't need many back then. I hated walking past that room and hated going into it even more. Training, in the beginning, sucked. I wanted the results from it, but I hated the process of getting them.
The weights reminded me that I was weak, that I was soft, and that I'd let school and work destroy my health. I got winded quickly, everything hurt, and there was no joy or feeling of accomplishment, at least not right away. I was in the suck. Deep.

"The suck" is a phrase used by Marines that defines any situation where conditions are undesirable. While it's nothing compared to being in a warzone, everyone has experienced the suck at one time or another. Setbacks, failures, divorce, getting canned, getting injured... all examples of the suck.

The newbie weight trainer knows all about the suck. The suck is physical and psychological. Your body fights back and your mind works against you. Every signpost tells you to stop and get back on the couch. The results aren't visible yet; there's no immediate reward. You're waist deep in the suck, and not many people can crawl out of it.

My newbie suck ended one day when I saw the first inkling of a triceps muscle. By then the home gym had moved to the garage and I'd even had to buy some bigger plates. I looked over at my reflection in the back window of my Jeep and there it was – the first sign that all this suck was paying off.

But as you'll remember, getting through the newbie suck is tough. Maybe you've quit a few times and had to have a do-over. But once you got some kickback from your hard work, the suck ended. And this is why, in all aspects of life, we have to learn to embrace the suck.

Embrace the suck

Love the Suck
Picture in your mind a car stuck in the mud. Your task is to get it unstuck. You find a good spot on the back to place your hands, take a deep breath, and heave. Blasted thing doesn't move. Get a better angle on it, set your feet, dig in deep, and push. Push harder, fight the mud that's sucking the car into the ground.

Finally, it moves. You're on your way again. It feels good too. A problem has been solved. Effort has been applied and it's paid off.

The lesson the suck teaches us is that we have the ability to escape it.

When your fat loss has stalled for weeks, you're in the suck. You're forced to try harder and learn new things. If you don't stop in the middle of the suck, your reward is a set of visible abs.

Plateaus in strength practically redefine the meaning of suck. Strength plateaus can last for years for the advanced lifter. He's forced to get smarter, get tougher, target and train his weak points, and get better. The payoff is a new PR and the knowledge that he's stronger than 99% of the people that walk by him on the street.

Self-improvement, in any area of life, doesn't begin with whining or blaming or feeling sorry for yourself. Those things only increase the suck. Real self-improvement has nothing to do with that coddling, wallowing-in-your-own-misery, cry-about-it-to-Oprah bullshit.

You don't get out of the suck with self-pity. I've never seen a successful person escape the suck by being sad about it. No, they get angry, they refocus, and they fight. They flip the switch and turn on some good, old-fashioned testosterone-fueled anger – the kind that takes the blinders off and gets shit done.

Listen, you can fight the suck or you can post your attention-baiting little cry for help on your Facebook page. Maybe your emotionally stunted friends will all "like" it.

User avatar #14076 to #14075 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
You don't pull a deadlift PR without first getting pissed at that stubborn collection of iron. You don't drop 50 pounds of fat without first looking in the mirror and confronting that porky guy staring back at you that couldn't control himself.

Every reward, every achievement lies on the other side of the suck. You face the suck. You accept it. Then you start throwing elbows.

Hi all. I'd like some tips. I am 18, 186 cm tall, weight 79 kg (fuck your imperial system). I don't wanna go to the gym because it's boring, I know I have a pretty good BMI, but it's mostly fat. I can do like 10 push ups when warmed up, hence, I'm weak as fuck. So, I want to lose some fat, gain some muscle, mostly just get stronger and a bit wider. I don't plan on going on some sort of counting what I'm eating diet, I want to keep eating the same as I do, I'll cut on some unhealthy shit and will eat a bit less, but that's all I'm willing to do. So, you got any tips on a workout plan of some sort or sth like that? Sorry for the long post.
User avatar #14108 to #14073 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
Also, you're tall like me. So building muscle is going to be a pain in the ass compared to if you were short.
User avatar #14107 to #14073 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
You can't lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. At least not enough to where it's worth trying.

To lose fat you need to be in a caloric deficit. Take in less than what you put out.

Building muscle is the opposite.

If you want to lose fat without losing muscle, you should do things like HIIT, complexes, and tabata exercises. If you don't like gyms, then HIIT is probably the best.

HIIT is just an acronym for High Intensity Interval Training, basically you do something intense for a minute or so, rest for around 30 seconds, and repeat. I recommend sprints. Go to a track, sprint the straights, walk the curves. After a few laps of this (assuming you are sprinting as fast as you can) you should be hurting.

I used to be about 180something (about 81/82ish kg if fucking the imperial system), and about the same height. I was mostly fat as well. I got into consistently working out in the beginning of last winter. I don't go to the gym for other reasons (no money), and my workout routine consists of lots of push ups, lots of sit ups, martial arts, and running. Those things combined has gotten me into good shape. It worked for me, so perhaps it can work for you.

Anyone got tips on what I should do to gain weight, or possibly a gym plan?

I'm 198 cm (about 6 ft 6 inch) tall and weight about 76 kg (about 167.5 pounds)
I'm actually of strong build, and was pretty strong while I played handball but two years of doing nothing took their toll on me. Also, I'm 16.
User avatar #14109 to #14068 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
You're tall and skinny, like me. So here's what I did that is working extremely well for me.

Eat a LOT, drink a protein shake with every meal. And when I saw a lot, I mean 4000-6000 calories a day. That's a ton of food, get used to stuffing your face. And make it high quality foods, meats, veggies, fruits, no shit.

Sleep more, get your full 8 hours, it's vital for recovery.

Work out a lot, 4-5 days a week. Being tall, your body has to expend more energy to do less weight (to put it simply, the weight has to travel about 6 inches further or more then the short guys). If you work out hard, and work out smart, you should see some gain in size.

Hello everyone, I came onto this board to seek advice that I am trying to change up my lifestyle and have taken notice onto exercising. I am 18 years old, 6'0" in height and 151.1 lbs, also I have been recently off surgery which now motivates me into getting a healthier and fitted body. I don't understand what are reps that I see on the board here and what kind of equipment do I need to use, but what I do have is a weight bench and boxing equipment(boxing bag, gloves, wraps, skipping rope, etc.).    
I also ask if any recommendations on what should I eat in the healthy section and daily training routines. Every tip and guides would be really appreciated.

-when should i do cardio i usaully do it at the end of my workout, but should i do it everyday?

User avatar #14082 to #14055 - brotify (05/13/2014) [-]
Do you have to lose it in a short amount of time? If not, just eat like you would normally, you won't lose muscle.

When you're trying to gain weight you have to be in a a caloric surplus, eating more calories then you're losing. You cannot cut at the same time that you are doing this. Although, usually you gain about 3 or 4 pounds of fat for every pound of muscle, you can stop this by doing HIIT. I prefer sprintwork, flipping tires, complexes. Because jogging is bad for muscle gain and so isn't long distance running. Cardio days should be their own, although I flip tires on leg days, or do sprints for a warmup.

Fat burners? Like the pills? Never had any experience with them.

The only supplements I'd say that you need are protein shakes and mass builders, they help you put on a lot of mass, quick, and are excellent and helping you get your daily protein.
Cardio should be done on their own seperate days, although like I said I like to factor them into my workouts or do them before as a bit of a warmup for lifting itself.
#14093 to #14064 - saltybanana (05/13/2014) [-]
i just recently discovered fat burners are just like a placebo pill smh

well thanks for the info mate, i was a biyt confussed on why i looese weigh soooo fast and my muscle as well? this body building stuff is still kinda confusing to me

when you ment cardio days should be on their own? you mean as in inbetween your workout days, or as in weekend days?
User avatar #14104 to #14093 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
Depends on your body and goals. I'm trying to gain as much pure muscle as I can. So I implement cardio into my lifting days to increase insulin sensitivity and keep myself from gaining fat along with the muscle.

If you are trying to lose fat. Cardio should be your main goal and they should have their own days. You CAN do cardio on your off days when you lift weights, but I wouldn't recommend it. In my opinion your off days should actually mean you don't exercise at all.
#14061 to #14055 - Womens Study Major (05/13/2014) [-]
I'm by no means an expert on lifting, but I find it quite easy to lost fat and retain muscle.

You're on the right lines, not eating any junk food, but also try to eat more fruit/veg and nuts.
I don't use supplements so I can't comment here.
Cardo, I'm almost certain, should not be done at the end of the workout. After your lifting session you want to rest rest rest and eat eat eat. I do lifting at early evening/late afternoon I come back and have dinner and some fruit and I sit down and rest for the night. Hope this helps.

All fat has to be burned off by cardio, you can't target a certain area of your body. It is literally everything or nothing.

I'm 17 y/o, I compete at 198, and have a

260lb Bench w/pause

360lb Squat

430lb Deadlift

155lb Overhead Press (don't judge me, I never work OHP)

my deadlift increased drastically since the last time i posted
User avatar #14135 to #14058 - studbeefpile (05/16/2014) [-]
Lol, you don't ohp more than you bench. That's proportionally preposterous. Especially for someone only deadlifting 475. Jeremy Hamilton - a world class powerlifter at 220 ohps like 335 or something like that, and he has a 500+ bench press, and a 700+ deadlift.

i dont do it sitting down its standing and using your legs
User avatar #14150 to #14143 - studbeefpile (05/17/2014) [-]
That's not overhead press, that's push press/power jerk. Totally different.
User avatar #14151 to #14150 - winners (05/17/2014) [-]
ur a power jerk
#14053 to #14052 - Womens Study Major (05/13/2014) [-]
Feels bad, man.

Alright, I have a question that maybe someone here can answer for me.

Been working out for a good few months now, pushing to failure on all of my exercises to 6 to 10 reps and 3 sets and gotten to a point where I now workout different muscle groups so I can workout each area harder.

These past two times have been different though. Almost immediately when I begin any workout a severe pain bursts at the base of my skull, seemingly where it meets the trapezoid. I'm theorizing an exertion headache but as I am new to this I want to rule out anything else it could possibly be before I make a decision. Any advice?

My boss had it - lack of oxygen and dehydration - visit a doctor ASAP !
User avatar #14054 to #14016 - saltybanana (05/13/2014) [-]
honestly this has happened to me in the past

i was doing pull ups, and felt as if someone hit my skull with a bat. i literally had to get off and sit on the ground to breath it out.

best advice i can give you is to drink plenty of water, and get good sleep.

Dude, first off, don't lift til exhaustion.

Second,go to a doctor.
#14045 to #14029 - groulgarigon (05/13/2014) [-]
I might have to.

And it was recommended I do the push to failure by someone who had more experience than me. I'll be researching the effects of it before too long. Thanks for your input.
User avatar #14026 to #14016 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
Well I'm not sure what would be causing the pain.

But I know that you shouldn't be pushing to failure so often. It can wear out your muscles very very quickly for obvious reasons.

Consult a doctor. You could be frying your CNS somehow, and that would suck. Better safe than sorry.
#14024 to #14020 - groulgarigon (05/13/2014) [-]
I haven't come across anything that would suggest it was my nervous system but you're more experienced so perhaps you could explain that to me.

User avatar #14015 - strallee (05/12/2014) [-]
It's like this. I am 195cm tall, and have 105 kg. Tall and lean. I have a not so small stomach, no chest at all (really small, chicnken brest), and good back (I am a little wide). Any suggestions how can I get mu stomach in shape, and have bigger chest?
User avatar #14027 to #14015 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
Pushups. Strict form pushups, not that ass in the air shit.
Works your whole core along with the obvious upper body.

Dips also work the chest very well.
User avatar #14018 to #14015 - bababadsheep (05/13/2014) [-]
Bench press.
User avatar #14013 - mrhumperdoodle (05/12/2014) [-]
I'm trying to put on my muscle using what little I have at my house. I have a chin up bar and two 20-25 pound dumbells, if i do a workout with just this can I still get gains?
User avatar #14031 to #14013 - marinepenguin (05/13/2014) [-]
Get good at doing pullups, chinups, and even muscleups. That will make you have excellent back musculature and will increase the size of your arms well too.

Use the dumbbells for lunges, Bulgarian split squats (you'll need a chair or bench), goblet squats, tricep extensions, etc.

Although if you want to gain some serious size you should join a gym or get better equipment. Jury rig stuff if you have to. Tractor tire, sledgehammers, anything you can get your hands on.

No. Unless you are 5'2" and then you will look roided with any muscle on you.

I want to join the military. I'm 17 years old, 5'10 and weigh 240 pounds. Right now i can bench around 225 but I do not run at all (I know running is important in the military and I plan to start putting it into my workout) but is me not running the reason I never lost weight? No matter how much muscle I gain it seems I gain just as much fat with it. Is it my diet or just the lack of running? And my diet isn't really a set thing. Sometimes it's chicken, sometimes it's steak, tuna or all of that on a bed of rice or I just go get fast food. But there is plenty of fruits and vegetables in my diet also.

Also if you can try to eat something every 2 hours. After two hours your metabolism begins to slow down.

Calories in < Calories out
This is the only way to lose weight, count them religiously.
User avatar #14022 to #14017 - imashitbricks (05/13/2014) [-]
That's definitely the thing the then. I've just had a eat what I want as much as I want as long as I work out a couple hours every day. Will changing my diet affect my gains though?
#14023 to #14022 - theoriginaltyson (05/13/2014) [-]
Keep your protein intake high and eat a lot of meat(dat der nitrogen) and your gainz will suffer minimally
Also don't be at too huge of a deficit, like maybe 500 Calories. You'll lose 1lb/week if you do that and it'll be almost entirely fat
Higher deficit = quicker weight loss but you run the risk of losing gainz too
#14079 to #14023 - SoundWave (05/13/2014) [-]
if you keep lifting heavy and hitting your protein macros you can be at a caloric deficit of 1000 cals a day and you wont lose muscle, i know thats how it worked for me, i ate 1800 cals a day with around 160g of protein and i didnt lose any strenght or muscle and i lost 10 kilos in 2 months
