Snap City is no fun, hope you fully recover some day. Goodluck broseph.

you're lifts are impressive, possibly the strongest guy on this board so far. I'm getting there.
Bench 225 (always been a weaker area)
Deadlift 325
Squat 350ish, need to update my max.

my lifts saw the most increase when i got certified as a nutrition consultant, and learned how to manipulate my nutrition, rather than hit up mackdombles after the gym lol.

we're all gonna make it brah thats it
User avatar #15120 to #15119 - marinepenguin (07/15/2014) [-]
That's probably where I'm lacking, I don't watch my nutrition like I should. I just steer clear of high sugar and a ton of fats.

I just eat high protein, and make sure I get around 4000 calories a day. I'm only 19 so I got plenty of time to reach my goals.
User avatar #15121 to #15120 - jaggedpvp (07/15/2014) [-]
i hear you you, you got plenty of time for the gainz, but just a heads up, fats are actually very important whether you are bulking or cutting, dont aviod the fats! fat doesnt cause fat gain, excess calories do! gl brah
User avatar #15122 to #15121 - marinepenguin (07/15/2014) [-]
I know that fats are needed in a good diet, but they still aren't good in excess. But thanks!

Anyone on here do 5x5, Maddcow, or some other strength program? I've been doing Stronglifts for a couple of months now and have made considerable gains. Feel free to reply with you're experiences, numbers, etc

quick question, is doing like 40 Chins a day in 2 sessions everyday effective in any way or form,
User avatar #15108 to #15098 - marinepenguin (07/14/2014) [-]
Yeah that's pretty good, as long as you aren't training to failure all the time. I'd start adding weights to you're pullups.
#15110 to #15108 - tjocksnorris (07/14/2014) [-]
i dont have any weights
User avatar #15111 to #15110 - marinepenguin (07/14/2014) [-]
You don't have any kind of heavy object to hold between your legs?
User avatar #15099 to #15098 - Draigor (07/14/2014) [-]
It's better than nothing. Best thing to do is a full body routine, so add some push ups, bodyweight squats, etc
User avatar #15100 to #15099 - Draigor (07/14/2014) [-]

Some 20 year old sucker punched me at a party and then got me a couple more times before he got me on the ground, I'm only 17 and wasn't doing digestive end product so I obviously lost I'm going to get a rematch since that was obviously bull digestive end product, and we don't call cops where I come from. . Does anyone know how to fix a dislocated shoulder? I had surgery on it and he kneed the intense bodylove out of it a couple times.
#15096 to #15093 - anonymous (07/14/2014) [-]
Did he just catch you off guard, because you're a rather fit dude

If it popped out of place don't do anything stupid and just report the little faggot

What the hell would he do that for? A 25 year old sucker punching and picking a fight with a 17 year old is absolutely ridiculous and uncalled for. Where do you live? Lets 2 on 1 this not so good lady.

I live in Florida, but I've got it handled. Thanks bro.
And I have no intense bodyloveing idea why he'd do that, this is the first time I'd met him and I was just sitting there then I get clocked I'm the jaw.
User avatar #15106 to #15102 - marinepenguin (07/14/2014) [-]
Well that's good to hear. But it's still bulldigestive end product. If a guy did that where I'm from he'd get jumped and thrown in the woods after getting the digestive end product beat out of him. We fight fair where I'm from.

Well looks like at the gym here, I'll only be able to do some bare necessities. I can bench, deadlift, and overhead press. But I won't be able to squat which is terrible. There are a ton of machines that I didn't get to look at, and there is a smith machine, maybe I can find some stuff to do to make up for it.

Beach is beautiful though, thought I'd let you guys know.

I'm just gonna do sprints and some pushup variations on my days I don't do major workouts, just keep in the groove of staying in shape while I'm not getting as good of a workout as I usually would.

And I'd make sure some women were watching while I was doing it, don't you doubt me.

Swimming, dude.

After i just use the bar to get the form right would 30KG be a good starting weight to deadlift?

Anyone link me to some good deadlifting equipment as i'm still looking and haven't bought the bar yet.
User avatar #15082 to #15077 - scoobydoobydo (07/13/2014) [-]
30kg is really low for a deadlift. Look up elliot hulse corrective deadlifts. You will learn a lot.

Why aren't you eating calf liver? If you cook it right it tastes amazing (I fry mine and eat it with a ketchup/hot sauce dip). It's an amazing super food, you don't need much for the benefits, cheap as fuck when you weigh it with it's benefits. If you think about it it'd be a waste to not eat the liver, since there's a higher demand for the meat of the calf than liver of the calf there's a bunch of livers that to waste.
If you love the earth and you're body then you'll eat the livers of babies not human babies you idiot

I don't have access to a gym (or any equipment at all, really) and I've been doing alright with that, except there doesn't seem to be much I can do to work my biceps.

Anyone think of a way to do it?
#15084 to #15069 - chocolatehotdog (07/13/2014) [-]
I saved this ages ago. But seriously buy some dumbbells
User avatar #15083 to #15069 - scoobydoobydo (07/13/2014) [-]
Chin ups with supinated grip for biceps.
User avatar #15071 to #15069 - leobaloy (07/13/2014) [-]
Without any equipment its kinda hard. Push ups would be a place to start, but I assume you already do that.

If you have anything you could try pull ups from that would be ideal

i need help with dieting and getting more energy at the end of the work day. i am 253 lbs with a BMI of 32.5 if i remember right. i got some advice from my doctor who said to basically do a high protein, low cab diet and get at least 30 minutes of exercise, 3 times a week.

I am stuck doing a traveling lifestyle atm so most of my meals are eating out. im usually pretty good about not overdoing it on fast food (maybe 2 meals a week are fast food).

i started eating that cheerios with protien cereal although cereal was on the list of things i should try to avoid. lately i've been eating a couple of tuna melts for lunch, maybe a burger or whatever the cafe at work has on special instead. dinner is usually a nearby restaurant, like the one at the hotel i stay at or a nearby town. i snack on yogurt and cheese sticks through out the day at work too so im not so hungry between meals.

i haven't had the energy lately to do any working out when i get done with work. im pretty sure im getting enough sleep so i dont think thats the issue.

Basically any advice for accommodating a high protien, low cab diet and how to get more energy for working out would be appreciated.
User avatar #15070 to #15066 - leobaloy (07/13/2014) [-]
I don't know you're age of occupation, but considering your doing a traveling lifestyle. You could always do you're body weight exercises in you're room, if your constantly going into buildings, take the stairs opposed to the elevator. But if you do have access to a gym or somewhere you can do some light jogging on you're days off, I'd do that.

As far as eating egg whites goes scooby mentioned this , your looking about a 20 cal or so difference in comparison with regular eggs. I used to eat egg beaters, and I just found that saving myself 20 cals an egg isn't worth paying 3x for eggs. Plus, you get tired eating the same type of egg everyday. With regular eggs you can make overeasy or scrambled, poached, or however you want. Which makes eating them easier. I recommend turkey sausage patties for you're breakfast in addition to you're eggs. 90 calories, 9g of protein, no carbs per patty at least the ones I buy

Cheese sticks are actually fucking great for a high protein, low carb diet. Low fat cheese sticks are about 50 cals a stick, 0 carbs, and 7g of protein each. Seriously keep the cheese sticks. scooby mentioned this
The best nuts are definitely peanuts. 1 oz of peanuts 150~ cals, 7g of protein, 3g of carbs srsly, google "x" nutrition at 1oz, peanuts are best, plus it helps that they're the cheapest too .
I also recommend beef jerky as a snack, 14g protein, 3g carbs, 80 cals per ounce, it can be pricey though.

If you can't switch directly to water, from drinking soda, I suggest Brisk half/half drinks, like their cherry limeade is 40 cals, 11 g of carbs per serving, which is miles ahead of soda, not to mention its freaking delicious.

For fast food, try to avoid anything breaded or with bread. Opt for a grilled chicken salad w/ a balsamic vinaigrette dressing

As far as energy goes, make sure you get enough sleep, and if your consuming enough protein, you won't feel tired.

Good luck
User avatar #15076 to #15070 - dafuckisthisshit (07/13/2014) [-]
im 25 years old.

thanks for the advice. sounds like i should try to incorporate nuts into my snacks and start eating salads.
User avatar #15068 to #15066 - scoobydoobydo (07/13/2014) [-]
Oh and I missed the biggest part. Only drink water. If you are one of those people who don't like water and drink pop all day then force you'reself to drink water and after a few weeks you'll eventually like it. Pop is just empty calories and sugar.
User avatar #15074 to #15068 - dafuckisthisshit (07/13/2014) [-]
ive actually done a lot better with drinking water instead of soda. i used to have soda with every dinner and now its pretty much water all day except for breakfast.
User avatar #15067 to #15066 - scoobydoobydo (07/13/2014) [-]
Just seems like you're lifestyle does not accommodate fitness man :/. Most hotels have small gyms so take advantage of that. Going into foods I would use almond milk in you're cereal or even better egg white beaters. Cut out the cheese from you're snacks. That is a big weight gain add in for snacks. Buy unsalted nuts. High protein, easily accessible, small, calorie dense, no excuses for not snacking on nuts. Try a turkey or chicken sandwich at lunch instead of a burger or tuna melt. Get side salads but no fatty dressings. Get the myfitnesspal app and track you're macros. It will tell you the calorie deficit you need to lose weight. No one can really tell you how to get more energy to work out. I mean I can tell you to get preworkout and feel hyped up but being motivated is something you have to find for you'reself. I look forward to going to the gym and it's a high point of my day. I can only describing this feeling with others passionate about it though. If you want it bad enough then you will do it.
User avatar #15075 to #15067 - dafuckisthisshit (07/13/2014) [-]
myfitness pal is the app my doctor recommended too. according to the app, my target calorie intake is 1750 a day with the intent to lose 2 lbs a week.

What does it say you're maintenance is?

im not sure. where would i find that?
User avatar #15081 to #15080 - scoobydoobydo (07/13/2014) [-]
It will show you're calories to loose weight, then maintenance, and then to gain weight. You can take you're maintenance calories and just subtract 500 instead of using 1750.

How many times on average throughout the week do you bring you're JO crystal and just jack it with some gymbros?
I think right now I'm up to about 2 or 3, because I love it when my crystal charges. Just gives me more energy.

What is that
#15049 - silverlance (07/12/2014) [-]
What effect does caffeine have on building muscle? I know energy drinks are garbage but what about coffee?
User avatar #15055 to #15049 - lolpandas (07/12/2014) [-]
Short answer: there is no considerable effect on building muscle.
Long answer: There are some possible positives and negatives associated with caffeine use and muscle building but there are too many variables to conclusively say that it is good or bad for building muscle. On one hand, you might hit a new PR or have a great workout, which would lead to progression. On the other hand, caffeine is a vasoconstrictor (not a vasodilator as mentioned before) which would cause some oxygen and nutrient deprivation leading to possible muscle tissue damage. That being said, some studies that promote occlusion training (Blood Flow Restriction Training) state that vasoconstriction promotes protein synthesis. I'm not sure if caffeine alone would have a similar effect. You also have to take into account that caffeine is thermogenic and could be catabolic to muscle tissue under certain circumstances. Take it if you'd like. The possible positives and negatives pretty much cancel each other out so it comes down to personal preference.
User avatar #15062 to #15055 - scoobydoobydo (07/13/2014) [-]
It is not thermogenic enough to be catabolic lol.
User avatar #15063 to #15062 - lolpandas (07/13/2014) [-]
"Could" "under certain circumstances". By itself its only catabolic effect would be from not making up the additional calories burned which would still be small difference but it is still a difference. Pair the little difference with someone already on a cut and taking too much caffeine and bam, higher cortisol levels which is entirely catabolic. I'm grasping at straws here but I'm just saying there is potential for caffeine to be detrimental to muscle building, however unlikely.

p.s. dunno if I'm making sense atm, baked for that bulking appetite 420liftitfaggit

Looking to get some fuller looking legs right now and I feel like I will but could use any extra advice on getting big legs, particularly in the inner leg right above the quad that goes by your kneecap. I'm eating a lot and squatting 5x5 moving up each week along with either box squats or pin squats and an extra quad movement as far as quads go and deadlifts and good mornings for hams anyone have anything extra that could help me?
User avatar #15059 to #15040 - marinepenguin (07/13/2014) [-]
Deadlifts, Squats, leg press, leg extensions and hack squats are probably all you need at this point in the game.
User avatar #15054 to #15040 - unncommon (07/12/2014) [-]
You wanna fuck up you're legs and build you're strength like a fucking bawss? Load up that fucking bar like your about to go 5 reps with that bitch. Then do as many as you're fucking can. Then once you reach that, take off some weight and continue. Do this once for 20 - 25 reps.
Guaranteed to crawl out of the text rack. One set is all you should be able to do. Expect results after 3 - 4 times of doing this. Expect crying too.
User avatar #15057 to #15054 - marinepenguin (07/13/2014) [-]
Drop sets seperate the men from the boys, that's for sure. thisistheguy, if you do this, do it sparingly. Like once every couple weeks, if not once a month. Doing this frequently will fry you're legs and you will become too fatigued to progress.
User avatar #15065 to #15057 - unncommon (07/13/2014) [-]
your right about that one. When I did it, it was once a week at first and that was a mistake. Once every other week is good. It's a huge movement.
User avatar #15073 to #15065 - thisistheguy (07/13/2014) [-]
Yeah those movements are crazy I know what you guys mean by that I had a friend text me going into the gym he was doing a two minute long squat and five minutes later told me he puked everywhere. Thanks for all the suggestions

5x5 is actually the perfect balance between strength and size gain, so just keep up with that and you should see some growth too.

People always talk about what happens when you eat too much in terms of diet and excersise, but never what happens when you don't eat. I hardly eat at all. Maybe once a day and just drink water in between. I've done this for years and ended up gaining quite a bit of weight from just that. I imagine my metabolism is at rock bottom because sometimes I can go a day or two without eating and feel fine. It's almost like a chore to force myself to eat more than once a day because I really am not hungry and feel like I'm just putting on extra calories or fat that I don't need. It's not really psychological, I'm just not hungry.
User avatar #15056 to #15034 - marinepenguin (07/13/2014) [-]
You probably haven't gained nearly as much weight as you could have. It sounds almost like an issue.

So I started lifting around a month and a half ago and i'm finally starting to see changes, is diet that important though?
Do I really have to change everything I eat, even though I eat rather healthily?
I've kept the same diet as before I started but added lots of protein to my diet, would this give me the gains I want or would I have to change to the 5-6 meal a day thing?
I usually have 2-4 slices of toast for breakfast then a banana or apple. Lunch is almost always 2-3 fried eggs in buns or sandwiches then dinner is always some sort of meat e.g. chicken, pork or beef and veg with some sort of potato like mash or baked. Lastly I have a yoghurt afterwards to help with calcium but I really don't know if this diet is suitable.
I'm not going for full bodybuilder sorta body but definitely a large strong buidl in the long run.
User avatar #15031 to #15027 - marinepenguin (07/10/2014) [-]
You don't have to eat like ridiculously perfect, no. And if you eat shit then you will keep progressing, but it will be slower and you will gain more fat. Just eat fairly healthy, and eat a lot. You aren't really eating a lot if that's what you are eating.
User avatar #15030 to #15027 - chocolatehotdog (07/10/2014) [-]
If you're eating healthily you don't need to change it or follow macros intrinsically, but you do need to be aware of what your body needs. Definitely work out (with a few calcs online) what your carb and protein needs are and keep it in mind with each meal you choose, and what day it is (i.e. more carbs for leg and back)
User avatar #15028 to #15027 - scoobydoobydo (07/10/2014) [-]
No you don't have to change it because you are still getting the noobie gains. Later on if you decide to cut or bulk it is beneficial to track your macros though. Most people you the myfitnesspal app.
User avatar #15025 - alicorn (07/10/2014) [-]
I've asked this before, but I'm still confused

All you need is a good diet with things to pick up to get stronger right?

I've just read multiple sources that all say different things to the point where I'm clueless as fuck
User avatar #15037 to #15025 - unncommon (07/11/2014) [-]
Large diet + heavy ass weights = strong man healthy
Varying diet (large/minimal) + moderate weights = bodybuilder least healthy
Clean diet + varying weight (high, low, & none) = athlete healthiest
Clean diet + small weights/no weights = endurance somewhat healthy
User avatar #15032 to #15025 - marinepenguin (07/10/2014) [-]
As long as you are eating more then your body needs then you will grow and get stronger. Eating good and healthy foods will reduce the amount of fat you gain, and will make the gains come quicker.

To answer your question in that exact why you asked in I would say no you do not need to good diet to stronger. Good diet to loose weight? Yes. If you ate McDonalds everyday and a surplus of calories your strength would be improving fast but you would look fat. That's what we call powerlifters lel.

Eat 10 everyday and it is like roids but you look like shit and have a heart attack at 35. Ct fletcher had this kind of diet and his heart almost exploded before he was operated on. He benched 730 or something like that though.

Alright guys I'm gonna want some serious help right now, I finally joined another gym for the first time in months and I really want to be serious to this one since during my last one I went maybe 2-3 times a month. Now my goal is to get around 15-19% bodyfat (currently at around low to mid 30's of mostly fat) and be able to lift at least mid 200's I was hoping you guys would give me a workout regimen since you guys know more workouts than I do, If I come up with one I would keep altering it with new exercises or skip certain ones because I think they all workout the same muscle. I want one that that splits into 3 days like upper body, lower body, and legs as well as last as long as 1.5 hours or more to complete. Last time I came up with a schedule it lasted like 30 minutes had 4 different workouts and it was over. I know I'm asking for too much but I know you guys can help out someone who's trying.

if you'ree trying to cut bodyfat diet would be the most important thing, the gym will help but you will see results when you change you're diet. I just eliminate carbs if i'm trying to trim

It is not about the time it to takes to complete the workout at all. Beginners benefit most from frequency.

minus the dude, on gym sets like this, with the pulley systems, are the weights you are lifting the true weights? so if you were to bench 300lbs(just a number) are you actually lifting that much or are the pulleys making it easier for you so you dont have to lift that much.

They wouldn't equal out, no. Most machines only train one muscle, so they're not working together. While you'd still have a good chest using that as a baseline isn't smart since it doesn't take into account the other muscles/stabilizing it all.

It isn't the same as lifting 300 pounds raw on a bench. It all depends on how lubricated and well built the pulley systems are, but I generally take around 2/3 of the weight and count that as what I really lifted.
