It lifts me up when I'm down, clears my head, and I do what's best for me after I do it. I wouldn't be who I am without working out.

Sounds very similar to me bro. My girlfriend of two years cheated on me and lied horribly all the while, I took the same path and have not spoken to her in over a month and feel so much better for it. Since, I have made working out A LOT a new hobby to feel better about myself and am looking great compared to before. Just be the best you you can be and feel great about the person you are while single. People who treat you like that will only hold you back, true happiness comes from yourself.

If i were to work out alot more often and start goig to they Gym and such and gained a fair bit of muscle, If i were to stop almost completely what happens? i doubt the muscles stays but...
does it turn into fat or makes it look like you have alot more weight or would i go back to slim no fat no muscle?
#8564 to #8558 - devout feminist (01/13/2013) [-]
Muscle can't turn into fat. It's a myth. The muscles will decrease in size, but whether you gain fat or not depends on how much you eat.

lolpandas , I have been reading some of the posts on this board and you seem to know your shit. What is your (or anyone else's for that matter!) opinion on me cutting cheese out of my diet?

It was a resolution so I haven't eaten it in 2013. I already have a pretty damn healthy diet and wanted to cut something out so I decided cheese was a good idea since it is one of the few fatty foods still in my diet. I will get my dairy by drinking (skim) milk, and having greek yogurt everyday (I actually will be using the yogurt as my source of protein after workouts). I definitely will still get my daily serving's worth of fat with small portions of (raw) almonds, (unsalted) pumpkin seeds, and chicken/fish.

My brother (he knows a lot about nutrition) initially didn't think it was too great of an idea but I think it will be beneficial. I already didn't eat pizza or any unhealthy things with cheese. The main difference is I won't have cheese on my sandwiches (I go to university and have them often) or use alfredo/white sauce when I occasionally eat pasta. Do you think this is a good idea? I don't really miss it.
User avatar #8554 to #8553 - lolpandas (01/13/2013) [-]
Pro's of no cheese:
-Reduced inflammation. The enzyme that helps break down lactose is destroyed during pasteurization in the majority of cheese products, so you end up being hit harder by lactose which shows through inflammation, being bloated, and sinus issues(not as common). The severity of that really depends on your own body. Most people have some amount of sensitivity to lactose even if it just a little.
-You loose a fatty, salty, calorie rich food.

If you don't miss it, don't eat it, but I don't really have too many reasons on why cheese is bad, other than lactose sensitivity and it being high on the calories. If you do switch back to cheese or want to try alternatives, you can look in to goat or sheep's cheese. Goat & Sheep's dairy has an acid (CLA) that combats the inflammatory properties of cheese and has other benefits. It's pretty much cheese without the negatives (other than fatty), though I can't vouch for how great it tastes.
User avatar #8555 to #8554 - airguitar (01/13/2013) [-]
I know a little about the inflammation thing from my brother, I plan on taking fish oil pills daily, partially for that reason, when I go back to school (I get fish often at home but never on campus). I am mainly hoping the no-cheese helps my body be even healthier overall, I lost 30 pounds over the past 4 months and plan on reaching a whole new level of health this semester.

The main difference will be getting sandwiches cheese-less. The goat cheese thing sounds interesting and I may try it if I start eating it again but I severely doubt I can get my hands on goat cheese on a college campus. I greatly appreciate the input and thought you put in to mine and other people's questions!

I have made excercise for a good time now, but I may want to stop. I'm gonna ask this here:

If I already have a developed chest, can it be normal again? I mean, without all the muscles
#8566 to #8551 - devout feminist (01/13/2013) [-]
"Normal" doesn't exist. What you mean is "Can it be smaller" and the answer is yes. If you don't train your muscles, they'll decrease in size
#8550 - devout feminist (01/13/2013) [-]
I'm going on a diet and going running everyday. I have good abs but they're not visible. Will a diet along with cardio make them visible, and how long will it roughly take?
User avatar #8578 to #8550 - skyryth (01/14/2013) [-]
Well just a suggestion first: I'd recommend that you throw in some core / ab exercises if you really want results. A good diet will have belly fat as one of the key areas that it will reduce, and while running will help you lose weight, I would say to do some leg lifts, crunches, planks, or any other core exercises to make your abs pop.

Ok fitness, I'll admit to being a "resolution-fag" if that exists here. I've decided I want to become a lot more muscular and ripped, and not to mention in shape.    
I'm a teenager, and I'm new to this, so can you tell me if this setup will work?   
-3 minutes of punching bag   
-3/4 minutes of jump rope   
-3/4 minutes of switching between 20 reps of leg lifts and crunches   
-Pushups (10 reps of diamond, normal, wide, and the side to side ones each)   
-3/4 minutes of sqauts   
-3 minutes of calf lifts (Where you press up on your tip toes and back down?)   
 -25lb dumbbell curls (as many as I can do)   
-3/4 minutes of 15lb resistance band work   
-Pushups again   
-3/4 minute punching bag cooldown   
My key areas I want to build / define    
1. Pecs / Chest   
2. Legs   
3. Arms   
I also try to run around a mile every couple of days. I'm not on any diet, but I guess you could say I'm eating a little bit healthier.   
So any advice on how to achieve the goals on muscle definition, fixing the workout routine, or anything to just help improve what I'm doing would be fantastic! Thanks board!

3/4 of a minute as in 45 seconds? Or 3 to 4 minutes?

You posted a lot so i'll answer you in parts.
1. No, you won't gain muscle mass with these things. Maybe some biceps since you are using weight but not much.
2. You may loose some fat but you won't get anywhere near ripped. Eating "healthy-ish" and doing this stuff won't do much for that goal. To get ripped means to burn a large amount of fat. To do that means to do some moderate-intense training WITH a proper diet. As much as I hate to admit it, loosing fat is mostly diet related. You loose weight by creating a calorie deficit, working out only adds to that deficit.
3. You may get "some" toning (myofibrillar hypertrophy) with these things but not much.
4. Yes, there is such a thing as a "resolution-fag" and we've had an abundance of them recently. Great for them, I just wish they would cut down on the "DO U EVEN LIFT" posts and actually ask for some advice/post results.


Start from scratch. If you want to gain some size, you will have to invest in weights eventually. Dumbells are great, and you can find adjustable (not bowflex pieces of crap) dumbells that you can add your plates to, or look in to calisthenics (it won't give you as much size, but some people have shown great results with it). Split it up in to days for your weight training. Since you are just starting, you can get away with a simple 2 or 3 day split. Do your cardio after your weights or on a seperate day. Look in to HIIT(high intensity interval training) for your cardio. You can do it with your punching bag or on runs, pretty much any high intensity workout as long as you do it in intervals with alternating intensity. There is a plethora of information on this board, dig through a few pages to find what you need. If you need, I can give you a more in depth view on diet or search through the forum. Anything else you need help on just ask away.
User avatar #8529 to #8525 - skyryth (01/12/2013) [-]
I meant 3 or 4 minutes.
Thanks for that man. By adding weight training, are you suggesting that I purchase a bench and barbell or focus my training on something else?
And I'll be sure to look up this high intensity thing.
One more thing: Any diets you could recommend? Like any kind of eating plan I could look up?
#8533 to #8529 - lolpandas (01/12/2013) [-]
I meant these. A bench and barbell would help you take it further, but adjustable dumbbells will help you just fine if you are tight on cash.

As for the diet, don't look up a plan, unless that really works for you. I don't like them much because they try to dictate what you eat for every meal every day. What I would suggest you do is look up your basal metabolic rate. Use this calculator. (it includes activity as well)
www.mayoclinic.com/health/calorie-calculator/NU00598
After you find that, subtract 500 calories from it. For example, my bmr right now is 2400 calories, I want to create a deficit of 500 so I would loose about a pound a week, so that brings me down to 1900 calories.

Then you count your calories. Count all the calories you eat in a day including drinks and do not go over you set calories. If you don't know how many calories it has, google it. Eat lean meats: Chicken breast, turkey breast, lean cuts of beef, tuna, salmon, etc. Keep the carbs a bit lower than you usually would and make it full of complex carbs: whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, brown rice, peas, beans. Drink mostly water, little milk and juice. No soda, sweets, processed foods, or fast food. It's okay to have it every now and then, but don't get it every day. The most important thing is staying at or a little under your set calories.

If you want to loose the most fat quickly, cut the carbs out almost completely while eating lean meats and loads of vegetables. It will give you results, but it's a rather strict diet and not all that great tasting.

Do you squat to parallel or ATG? You could always try front squats but not a lot of people enjoy those.

Hang from a pull up bar and do some spinal decompression for your back if it starts to hurt.

#8528 to #8523 - devout feminist (01/12/2013) [-]
Do you tense your core while doing squat? That may be causing the lower back problems. Another reason could be that you round your back while going down.
Form > weight.

Hello. I have a questions. This morning I was a nice weight after a week of working hard. I checked tonight and it is 4 pounds more than it previously was. I still haven't taken a shit, but could it be what I at today? And the water I drank?

Also I have two 25 lb dumbells. Should I do a workout routine that consists of those? Like Power 90 first and then work on cardio like jump roping, and running? Or should I do Power 90, and jump rope at the same time. Get into better shape and then start running? I plan on doing couch to 5k. Thanks!
User avatar #8526 to #8522 - lolpandas (01/12/2013) [-]
You need to always check your weight at the same time every day. There is a large amount of reasons why you probably gained 4lbs during the day, water retention from salty foods/hadn't taken a shit/ big lunch/ clothes/ etc. It's nothing to worry about.

Should you do a workout routine with dumbbells? It depends on what you are looking to achieve. If your goal is the couch to 5k then I don't see how a weight workout will help you in running a 5k. Power 90 is also a predominantly cardio program, set up your workouts however you feel best. If you do add the weights, do weights first, then cardio.

Start running and getting in shape at the same time. They are two parts of the same thing. Why wait to run?
User avatar #8531 to #8526 - ILikeGreen (01/12/2013) [-]
I wanted to wait so I jiggle less lol. Power 90 uses dumbells in the exercises.

Thanks!

I have the ability to join a gym.
I want to, but I never have the motivation.
I also know I should prepare to work out.
I'm not a fat fuck, but I am overweight by like 20 odd pounds.

Can you guys help me? What do you do to say no to the cheeseburgers? What do you guys do when you need to get outta bed to exercise?
User avatar #8520 to #8509 - thee (01/11/2013) [-]
Well, join the gym, if you lack motivation, you will find some once you start working out. The more you exercise, the more you will love it, simple as that.

Make a plan, diet or exercise plan, doesn't matter, it will help you keep an overview and will give you a goal.

Or start jogging. If you want to lose weight, that's one of the best ways. Maybe even the best. Find some music you enjoy, it'll help you stay motivated, and you will actually start enjoying your jogging sessions because of this.
User avatar #8516 to #8509 - hybridboxll (01/11/2013) [-]
I don't have to say no because no one is offering me a cheeseburger all day. Just stop wanting cheeseburgers, it's simple.

And I usually work out after college so I don't have much problem with the getting out of bed department, but if you just force yourself to do something for somewhere around 3 weeks it becomes a habit and you no longer have to consciously force yourself to do it.

a inspirational movie always helps
inspirational quotes
like i said, i'm a swimmer, so what i like to do is watch races of guys like Phelps or Lochte or Nathan Adrian. it makes me train harder and swim faster because that's where i dream to be. if your an athlete, i suggest watching the greats of your sport perform.

This probably won't work for you but I think about a really cute dress that I want to look good in. What might work for you if you're on a team is to not disappoint your coach. I know whenever I don't hit my times or run the hardest I could, my coach views me a little less favorably so I try to not let him down. Sometimes I don't even think about it. I just get up and run as if I don't have another choice and by the the time I'm into my second mile the motivation just kind of sets in on its own.

You know........this board would be a lot more helpful if the people posting for advice would post their body so the people giving advice can give more accurate and personalized advice.

Everyone naturally has disproportionate muscles that are bigger compared to other parts of their body that can be fixed with proper lifting and or fat loss.

If you wanted to have a more aesthetic body then lifting weights is good advice, but if you don't show us your body we might not know you have maybe extremely small pectoral muscles compared to your shoulders and lats, therefore the person asking for advice would not know this and continue to lift weights but not emphasize chest workouts among his routines.

I'm saying this because I have gave numerous amounts of advice on this board, but none of the people I was giving advice to was willing to show their body and therefore I could only give vague and general tips on how to improve their body in anyway.

Look at /fit/ on 4chan, people are constantly posting their bodies whether it be skinny or obese and therefore they can get more personalized attention and routines to help them better themselves.
