Which is best for cutting (i.e less muscle mass lost, more fat lost, quickest), between carb cycling, keto and intermittent fasting?

Okay, so I just have a question.
So like I said a while back, I started swimming at my local college's pool for major weight loss, been going twice a week, and after a few weeks, last week to be precise, the presiding swim team coach struck up a conversation with me at the end of my workout. He was doing smalltalk, introductions, exchanging of names, swimming tips. I told him what I know about nutrition and swimming, how I wanted to focus on freestyle and backstroke technique. All went well, I went home, bla bla bla. Cue this week. Today, he came up to me at the end of my workout and asked me when on Monday I'd be available to swim. Normally I don't swim on Monday, but whatevs, it's not like adding another day for swimming will hurt me in the long run. So I said noon on Monday, but I'm just curious about the whole ordeal. Is that, like, normal? I'm a pretty introverted guy, partly due to social deficiencies in my early life from autism. I like to think I've gotten pretty successful socially, but every once in a while I'll still totally blank out on people's motivations for actions they take. Example, I needed years and UrbanDictionary to finally figure out that your mom jokes were supposed to be fraternizing, rather than just insulting your mother.

I've been working out regularly for about 6 months now and where my left leg joins at my hip has started to hurt. Like tighten up and sting kind of hurt. This hasn't happened on any other part of my body and it will randomly start like when I'm walking regularly or working out. I'm not sure what to do because it don't hurt enough to warrants a doctors appointment but it does make me stop from working out. Does anyone else have this problem?

Excellent job. You built a decent amount of muscle while losing a hundred pounds. Though I'd still put you at the upper teens or lower twentys in terms of BF percentage, you could honestly continue losing fat while building muscle until you're under 210 at least.

That's strange, since the deadlift is the lift most unaffected by fat loss. You could be training it incorrectly, your form could be improving, or it could be something else entirely. Honestly it's hard to tell with just "my deadlift is going down as I lose weight".

So my close grip bench seems to want to sit just shy of my bodyweight where it stalls, so I'm going to continue slowly widening my grip until I've "peaked" my strength back into a 3-5 rep range. Might test my max in a month or two if I'm feeling up to it. Did 170 with a close grip for 3 sets of 7,5,5 paused, not happy about missing reps considering last workout I think I got my numbers across the board. I also think I'm going to bulk 20 pounds by June and jump on Wendler 5/3/1with a bunch of accessory work in about a month.

Other than that, it's gonna be two squat days (one for sumo stance squats, one for Oly squats), one deadlift day, and one back accessory day. I'm hoping to be a less-fat 200 by December....we'll see.

Sounds like a good plan. I'm mostly rebuilding now for obvious reasons. My bench went way down, but I managed 185 for 5 paused on my last set so its an improvement.

My squats are utterly despicable. I'm doing sets of 5 with 205 and they're difficult. Although I've been going up 5 pounds every workout fairly easily, so hopefully I gain back quick.

Give me another month or two and I'll be back on track.

Am doing this currently to bring up my weak quads/ high bar squat. It's working. I've gone from 135 up to 165 in 3 workouts in 10 pound jumps and they are brutal. Since you're rebuilding, your numbers should blow up pretty hard on an intense routine like that.

Don't push yourself to that point every workout. Do 80% of what you would do to cripple yourself and add a little more each workout and you should slowly build up your work capacity. Don't constantly test your maxes on compound exercises (not even 5+rm) and control your volume.

Ok I want to lose weight but the odds are against me... I take antidepressants and sleeping meds that I have noted made me gain ten pounds and it is impossible to lose. My family are not healthy eaters they buy junk food and only junk food and they order fast food instead of making it so lack of groceries. So diet is out of the way. I am constantly at school working or at home working. I have no time to workout and I want to lose it and when I do have time to workout Im so exhausted from everything else Id just sleep So what do I do?

You gotta work out and eat healthy to lose weight.
You could consider buying/cooking your own food, but I think you should have a talk with your parents about the fast food and stuff. Not only it makes you gain weight, it's also very very unhealty and your body needs vitamines.

You also got to find time for your workouts, everyone has busy lifes. Check out the video. You can also look at other videos form Elliot Hulse. I recommand that.

To start, you can just walk an hour before breakfast (You start to burn calories after 20/30 minutes, so if you do less, it's not really effective and before breakfast because otherwise your body is busy digesting -I don't know if that's the right word since Englist isn't my first language- the food you just ate and not busy with burning fat.)

Eat less calories, I don't know how much you weigh or how tall you are so I can't say how much you can eat, but heres a site you can use: www.healthyweightforum.org/eng/calculators/calories-required/
I never worked with it so I don't know how accurate it is, but I guess it's good.

I hope you can do something with this information and I wish you luck! You can always message me if you have questions.

First rule; you wanna gain muscle, you gotta eat. Try to eat a lot of proteins. This helps your muscles recover.
Since you want to grow muscle, I suggest you do light weights and a lot of reps. Like 12-20 reps per excersise.
If you never worked out before I suggest starting with training every muscle like 3 or 4 times a week. This is because your body isn't used to weightlifiting and you have a higher risks of injuries and stuff.
Try to do the biggest muscles first.
One or two excersies per musclegroup and 4 sets each.
So as an example;
Legs, back, chest, biceps, triceps, shoulders, abs.
And please, please, don't forget your legs, cause it'll look fine in the beginning, but after a while it's horrible.
You can do this for a few weeks or so and then do one or two muscle groups per day.
For example
Monday: Chest. Tuesday: Legs. Wednesday: Back. Thursday Shoulders. Friday: Biceps and triceps.
For this around 4 excersises per muscle group and also 4 sets.

www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/
Here you can click on a muscle group and you get to see excersises of that muscle group.

I hoped this helped and if you have questions you can message me!

The most important thing is that you do sets till failure, so that you really can't peform another rep.
I learned that a lot of reps is muscle growth and low reps, heavy weight is getting stronger. The 6-8 reps is inbetween and also good. If you can do more, do more and after the set, go heavier. If you don't make it, make it a little lighter.

It's your typical bro split with no deadlifts, no progression and more abs than legs. 2/10, would not recommend. If you're a beginner, I'd look into a full body routine like starting strength or stronglifts 5x5. If you're more intermediate, look into an upper/ lower split like Wendler 5/3/1 or a Legs/Push/Pull split.

Theres no hip hinge in general. I'd be okay with a dumbbell romanian deadlift or a hyper extension, but having little to no direct lower back work is a horrible idea. Unless you're severely injured (I mean you're in physical therapy bad) there's no reason not to have a hinging movement.

You never need one specific movement to see progress, but bagles is correct in what he says.

It tells you what reps to aim for and to track them, but not what to do when you reach those reps. Most programs will have a set progression, like adding 5 pounds when you can do the programmed amount of reps and sets. Another thing I should mention is that you get more results from exercises like bench press, row, and shoulder press twice a week and squatting up to three times a week if you do it right.

If you play hockey, squats and power cleans would you build strength and power out of your lower body. You should look into starting strength and run that for a few months in it's pure form but after a while, add in some extra upper body work like dips and cin ups. Initially, you will see great upper body development with just a bench press, overhead press and deadlifts but after 3-6 months, a few sets of bodyweight exercises can help you develop lagging areas that can form because of the amount of lower body vs upper body of the program.

Building a solid strength base will make adding size later on an easier task. Just worry about the basics for 6 months or a year before trying anything too specific.

Yes, mastering proper form is a huge part of the beginner stage. Your goal should be to get down good form and adjusting to the increased work loads.

From my understanding of bras, the first number is the chest measurement in inches, while the letter is the cup size. My previous girlfriend was a 34B, so she had a 34 inch chest all the way around, and B cup breasts. Now the one you gave an example of is complete gibberish to me.

well it might be centimeters so 85 cm = 33 inches

Okay. Then the A/B probably just means that the cup size is in between an A and a B.

You could probably just Google that bra size to get a visual representation. But, a ~33A/B wouldn't be that big. My previous girlfriend was a fairly high B and it wasn't more then a small handful.

I really don't care how big tbh
and she's not even fully an adult yet (not even close to 20) so it'll probably still develop. I have no strong feelings one way or another.

As someone who is planning to become a Nazi Eugenicist work in the field of Genetic Engineering in the future, I had a theory today on how to create the perfect physical man naturally through selective breeding. Please give thoughts as to why I should be put down before it goes any further

The first step would be choosing parentage. The ideal candidates would of course not have a history of drug use or hereditary ailments. Ideally the child, when fully grown, would be around 6'2-6'4 and would way somewhere between 220-245lbs. Any more height would be detrimental for everyday life and for various exercises such as squats. Any more weight would mean that there is a higher bf% than necessary.
To this end, the father would be around 6' Mesomorphic man, while the mother would be between 5'8-5'11 Meso or Ectomorphic woman. This would produce the desired height and a much more optimal metabolism for the next step

Childhood caloric intake directly affects one's growth. The reason we see many children being much shorter and leaner is due to them not eating much as a child while creating a caloric deficit through sports. Often times when they do eat, it's junk food or whatever edible paste the school serves during lunch hours. This is how we get manlets. In order for our specimen to to be optimal in adulthood, they would need a high intake of protein and testosterone rich, ideally this would come from Red Meats and various fish and carbohydrate rich foods. Protein to promote muscular growth, carbohydrates to create fats used to naturally increase muscle strength Due to excess weight the muscles strengthen themselves in order to carry it, protein aiding this process to a great extent and also to create a caloric surplus used for promoting growth in height at an early age. Effectively, we'd be creating a fat kid who plays Minecraft all day. However, instead of sitting around doing nothing, the specimen would work with fitness bands and spurts of bodyweight movements to prevent muscles from getting atrophied each day, along with pushups and situps in the lower numbers to create a beginning of strength but not lose fat. Through this we would achieve our ideal height and frame. Think of it like chiseling out the ideal amount of Marble from the much larger stone to work with. You need more than you will need

Once the child has reached the age of 15, they should be at our 6' height and around 260-300lbs. Now is were we begin weight training and proper dieting. For dieting, we would cut out most but not all of the carbohydrates, adjust the protein intake as necessary, and introduce more fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins B, C, and D, along with necessary acids and Calcium. Weight training would be introduced slowly at first using primarily bodybuilding techniques and cardio to remove the no longer necessary excess fats. The subject would work in 4 day intervals, followed by a rest day where they would take in larger amounts of proteins than during the rest of the week. This would contain more bodyweight and light-weighted movements at first, such as weighted sprints and lateral movements with dumbells and machines. Gradually we would increase weight and volume, specifically targeting muscle groups to promote size and definition. Once we've achieved a weight of 200, the subject should be fatter than most, but at the same time showing good hypertrophy.

At the age of 17, we being strength training. The subject will now switch to a 6 day cycle, with 3 days focusing on high weights for 2-5 reps with the big 3 and Strongman exercises, and 3 days continuing hypertrophy training, increasing weights and reps as necessary, followed by their rest day used for excess intake of protein and other necessities

By age 20, we should have a man able to bench 4 plates, squat at least 5, and deadlift at least 6, with a functionally perfect physique and low lactic acid production

From there we clone, Mengele out

Just get sperm donors to breed with egg donors, the screening process to get into those things are already doing half the work for you. Guaranteed no history of health defects.
Honestly, in my genomic selection philosophy, natural selection of humans isn't the way to go. Genetic altering is where it's at.
Cats have insanely efficient kidneys. Gorillas naturally grow horrendously insane amounts of natural muscle. The axolotl and the starfish both have extremely efficient regeneration capabilities Elephants have a chemical that totally supresses the onset of cancer. Why not just add all those traits to the gene pool?
Most early eugenics proponents were coming from a completely off-base direction.
We have society to make up for our base weaknesses. The existence of competition in the olympics is a testament to physical human capability as a whole.

Although on a slightly related note, have you actually seen how strong a gorilla is? Just imagine what the hell would happen if we trained one to train like a strongman.

I'm well aware that genetically engineered people are the way forward, but the technology to do that is roughly 20-30 years out. As stated before this was without any alteration of cells

Are you implying I haven't prayed to the Based Backsnap Gorilla of 10pl8

Slow down there Gataca, you forget that selective breeding circumvents natural selection. What is ideal to you may very well not be best adapted, and thus detrimental to the species. Variability is necessary for survival. Go back you lab Kreiger.

It would take much more then just one generation to create a perfect individual. Intense genetic screening, followed by a meticulous breeding program for at least a dozen generations to weed out the weaker characteristics and emphasise stronger ones. A complete micromanagement of their daily lives wouldn't really even be necessary since we're just talking genetics, physical activity and training doesn't really change your ggenetic potential. Unless you wanted to measure improvements in performance.

If you really want to get nuts about it, wait until genetic alterations becomes more fine tuned and can increase things like muscle density, bone density, amount of mitochondria in a muscle cell, amount of satellite cells within muscles, strength of tendons, the efficiency of waste disposal, etc.

Why is that the perfect body type?
Certain body types fit certain things.
Olympic swimmers =/= weightlifters =/= basketball players =/= baseball players =/= gymnists =/= marathon runners
Besides if everyone is huge and big, then nobody is.

Because they'll excel equally in all of those things. They won't be the greatest, but they'll be above average all around.

The goal is not to be just huge and Big, it's to be functionally perfect. Aesthetics are part of function, as they allow easier movement for each activity. We're not going for Mr Universe or Fastest Man Alive or Strongest, were going for above avaerage rating in all fields

I think you should add some mental traits to your breeding selection.
Pragmatic, high intelligence, adaptive, hardworking.
