I think I'm going to start doing more hypertrophy related workouts. I've done 5x5 for about a year, and seen consistent progress, but I think it would be smart to switch things up. I'm already doing the 20 squat program, and because of that I plan on going lighter with deadlifts and focusing mostly on technique. For bench I am thinking maybe 3 sets of 12, and for overhead press 4 sets of 8. I'll incorporate some more DRM lifts into my training and maybe even some supersets or drop sets. Opinions? Ideas?
#21864 to #21853 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/10/2014) [-]
Youre going to love bodybuilding type workouts. Any idea what your routine is going to look like? PHAT, PPL, Dual Factor, etc?
#21885 to #21864 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/10/2014) [-]
Looks pretty good to me. Bis with back and tris with chest? abs and calves with legs?
User avatar #21927 to #21885 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/11/2014) [-]
Yes. You responded to your own comment so I didn't see this til just now.
#22006 to #21927 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/12/2014) [-]
Oh shit I did haha
User avatar #21865 to #21864 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/10/2014) [-]
Back, Chest, Legs, Shoulders. I like this routine. I was originally doing PPL, but I was doing too many pushing movements because I was doing shoulders and chest on the same day, so I added a separate shoulder day so I wouldn't have to alternate days every weeks. This particular split is one I like doing.
User avatar #21854 to #21853 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/09/2014) [-]
Isn't alternating sets better then supersets?
Also what does DRM stand for?
User avatar #21855 to #21854 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/09/2014) [-]
The whole point of supersets is to create a greater stress on your body, when it comes to terms of building muscle, alternating sets don't do as good of a job.

And DRM stands for Double Rep Method. I've been doing it for about 6 weeks so far and I love it. It's where you find a max for a certain lift, say an 8 RM for bench, your perform those 8 reps followed by a brief rest (10-15 seconds maximum), and then you perform another rep or two, then rest, then another rep, then rest, and keep going until you've doubled your reps.
User avatar #21857 to #21855 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/09/2014) [-]
So wouldn't you being doing 5x10 (DR method) instead of 5x5 but still doing a 5 max lift?
User avatar #21859 to #21857 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/09/2014) [-]
I would if that were what I had implemented into my routine. I was only experimenting with it for sets of 8 on incline bench and I loved it. I probably won't use it on my main lifts, at least for now.
User avatar #21863 to #21859 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/10/2014) [-]
Today my workout was effected by the pain in my wrists. Basically I always have pain in my wrist after I finish a set of barbell curls, I really don't know why it's the only movement that hurts my wrists but I haven't come up with anyway to change it. Should I just find a different type of curl to do for bicep or is there something I'm missing, it's literally a regular curl with the barbell.
User avatar #21866 to #21863 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/10/2014) [-]
Hmmm, mine used to hurt after doing heavy sets of barbell curls now that I think about it. But after I awhile they stopped hurting on their own. So I honestly couldn't tell you what I did to fix it. If it isn't excruciating then I probably would just dig through it, or try dumbbell curls.
User avatar #21868 to #21866 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/10/2014) [-]
Well it hurts a lot when you let go of the barbell after the final rep, enough that I'm afraid my wrist might break...
User avatar #21869 to #21868 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/10/2014) [-]
Yeah that sounds familiar. Your wrists could just be weak. Do you have naturally skinny wrists?
User avatar #21877 to #21875 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/10/2014) [-]
I honestly don't know why your wrists would hurt. I only know that mine did, and I had naturally skinny and weak wrists. So until I got stronger wrists and forearms I continued to have some pain.
User avatar #21880 to #21877 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/10/2014) [-]
Well if my wrists do break I hope you feel bad :^ )
User avatar #21846 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/09/2014) [-]
Should working out every muscle group twice a week be the minimum amount you should train them?

What do people think of the push/pull/leg workout schedule? chest, tricep and shoulders would have to be all on one day
#21848 to #21846 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/09/2014) [-]
Twice a week is good, but you can make gains on a once a week bro split.
Im doing PPL right now and loving it, but you do need a good strength foundation like studbeef said
User avatar #21847 to #21846 - studbeefpile (12/09/2014) [-]
I think it's a good idea for athletes who have been lifting for at least 6 months, and have built up a good foundation of strength. For beginners, it might be problematic since they're usually still working out issues with form and that type of thing, not to mention they may not have the capacity for such a large work load yet.
User avatar #21851 to #21847 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/09/2014) [-]
I've been doing it regardless but I do have to agree since pull day is going to have the most workload (2hrs).
#21845 - baglesbites (12/09/2014) [-]
My cleans are absolutely terrible. I feel like I always try and muscle up the weight rather than trying to explode and it does not help that I can't seem to coordinate into at quarter squat leaving me stuck with around a 2 inch dip to catch it. Anyone have any ques that helped out them out with this?
#21841 - jaytothedee (12/08/2014) [-]
you know what i hate kids at the gym yesterday i was running on the treadmill when a girl next to me brought 2 toddlers with nothing to do. note before i run i wash down the treadmill before working out the toddler stole the fucking spray bottle and started running around the gym with it sprayin all the fucking water not only that the second toddler took all the fucking paper towels so i could not even use them to wipe down after i was done Why the fuck would you bring your kid to the gym with nothing to do!!!

S'up fit, my knee isn't in great shape atm doc give me my medicine & told me to take a weeks rest, any ideas what i can do for 1 week not involving my knee? can't use gym as that's a 4 mile walk there and back
User avatar #21843 to #21840 - studbeefpile (12/09/2014) [-]
Push ups, pull ups.
User avatar #21844 to #21843 - gigantustesticulus ONLINE (12/09/2014) [-]
good call man, i thought it's ridiculous to do zero exercise because of one knee surely
#21834 - leobaloy (12/08/2014) [-]
Meant to post this a while back

Went to Texas for Thanksgiving cuz fuck the cold yo , and went cycling with my uncle and other cyclists.

Pic related is roughly 4800 ft elevation, if not more. I'm used to a 500~ elevation
Climbing that mountain was tough as balls, 4.5 miles of pure climbing
User avatar #21849 to #21834 - weaponexplain (12/09/2014) [-]
Damn nice bike. Do you do any racing?
User avatar #21852 to #21849 - leobaloy (12/09/2014) [-]
I want to race

But where I live the only competition is for mountain bikes, not to mention I've only been on a road bike twice in the picture and a day before , but I do spin cycle daily, so my stamina isn't bad, I just need to get the jist of when to change gears, when I can rest, etc. aka stuff that comes with time
User avatar #21826 - toncheky ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Just got back from my first serious gym visit.
I did the 5x5 program for beginners.
I was supposed to go with my friend but he cancelled, so I decided to go alone (I am a bit awkward around new people and new locations)
So I go on, buy the monthly pass, change clothes and head in. I was looking for what I need, a bit confused, when a huge friendly dude offers help. Tells me where's what, some tips, and generally helps me get going. Finished my workout (bit less than an hour). On my way out I spoke to him, introduced my self and thanked him for the help, he said anytime and I left.
It went so much better than I expected, I don't think anyone laughed at me (I didn't really care since the big dude was friendly) and I was satisfied with what I did.
Can't wait to go again.
User avatar #21827 to #21826 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
One thing that really irritates me is that so many people think that gyms are full of guys judging each other and laughing at those who don't have a clue and are new. When in reality everyone is usually very nice, helpful, and willing to help you learn. I've never had a negative gym experience. Glad to see you enjoyed it and I wish you the best.
User avatar #21835 to #21827 - lotengo ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
I had 1 bad encounter at a gym.
I was training for a few months when i got tired of my gym (didnt evn had a squatrack) So i went to a bigger one. After a few weeks some guy with big arms but legs of a 12 year old girl to move my arms further apart to focus on my chest (close grip bench press) i told him i was focussing on my triceps and he just freaked out. Talked about how big he wass and how small i was.
Came back a few minutes later, told me he was working out for over a decade and i need to respect him, but that he wont help me ever again and i fucked up.

Came back a few minutes later, told me i looked like a lil kid people always misjudge my age, i look really young because of my skinny arms, slim waiste and blond facialhair
User avatar #21838 to #21835 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
You'll always have assholes like that. I'm not saying there aren't any in the gym. It's just that more then likely you'll find good people who are willing to help.
User avatar #21830 to #21827 - toncheky ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that. It was more or less a self-centered feel, also from outer-world experience.
Thanks man.
User avatar #21832 to #21830 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
I wasn't saying you were saying that. But it's a comment excuse and complaint that I've seen.
User avatar #21833 to #21832 - toncheky ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Ah, right. Yeah it's lame if used as excuse.
User avatar #21813 - connorjay (12/08/2014) [-]
So, I can't remember which of you guys mentioned it, but I decided to increase my reps for deadlifts and realised how much of a fucking tool I am.

So I did 70kg for 5 good reps as a warm up, and then went up to 150kg (because the guy I saw mention it was doing it with 315lbs, and I just went to the nearest 10, studbeefpile maybe?)
So it turns out (which I really should have noticed) I have mini breaks between every 2/3 reps.
So my 11 reps went 2-2-2-4
Each break was only like 5-15 seconds but for fucks sake. And now I mention it, I think I've been doing that for ages. So I'm sticking with 150kg and aiming for that 10. And then going up to 160 when I do that etc etc.

Might have one more PR attempt before I leave my gym for christmas just to try and beat studbeefpile with his 207kg.

Just a bit demoralising realising I fucked up my training just to try and rush myself!
User avatar #21825 to #21813 - studbeefpile (12/08/2014) [-]
That was me, by the way.

And yeah, I do that to. It's perfectly fine. Like marine said, it allows you to make sure you're in your proper position before pulling again. Don't worry about it at all.
User avatar #21828 to #21825 - connorjay (12/08/2014) [-]
Ah cool.

I will still aim for a good 10, and try and hit 215kg by Christmas...
User avatar #21836 to #21828 - studbeefpile (12/08/2014) [-]
Go for it man! I'm gonna try to do the same. Let's make this happen.
User avatar #21850 to #21836 - connorjay (12/09/2014) [-]
Just got my stuff back, I'm 81kg, so my current 200kg is like 2.46x my body weight...

Unsure I can get much more weight out!
User avatar #21822 to #21813 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
I always reset after a rep. I'll rep out, let the weight down, then take a few seconds to fix my stance or grip before doing another rep. It lets me do more quality reps then if I powered through them all quickly.
User avatar #21804 - studbeefpile (12/08/2014) [-]
Deadlift PR brahs. 455lbs.

User avatar #21824 to #21804 - jokerjack (12/08/2014) [-]
That was what I pulled the week before my shoulder surgery. Felt awesome. Goal is to get back to it while getting body weight down to 165 from 190 at the time. I fuck up too much with the eating tho, currently 177 and pulling 335 5x3 and increasing rapidly as form and neuro comes back
User avatar #21802 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Found out today that more then likely I won't be leaving for basic training until mid summer. So that leaves me a lot more time to continue building up size. Considering to start taking creatine. I've gained 60 pounds on purely food and protein shakes, so I'm just curious on opinions for it.
User avatar #21810 to #21802 - fallenraven (12/08/2014) [-]
youll lose alot in basic man, i would just focus on cardio
User avatar #21812 to #21810 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
I don't want to lose a lot or stay the same for 7 months waiting for basic.
User avatar #21809 to #21802 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/08/2014) [-]
How much of that do you think is fat though? Have you considered that you are overeating fat? Jus curious.
User avatar #21811 to #21809 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
I'm gaining mostly good weight, which means I'm not over eating. I'm actually probably not eating g as much as I could right now. You can still see my abs, so I haven't gained a ton of fat since I started.
User avatar #21819 to #21811 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/08/2014) [-]
That is actually my main goal I'd think, to get a 6pack. That's why I worry about overeating.
User avatar #21820 to #21819 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
You get a 6 pack by not having much body fat. Once you get to about 15% you should start to see it. I was worried about it at first when I started gaining weight. But then I saw how much progress was going on everywhere else.

Whenever I finally cut after who knows how long, I'll have a 6 pack and I'll be huge everywhere else too. Not just be skinny with a 6 pack.
#21837 to #21820 - lotengo ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
unless you are a big guy 15% bf is kinda high for seeing it, maybe you can see a few lines when the lighting is good. But for most people you need a few percentages less
User avatar #21839 to #21837 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
True. It also depends from person to person. I still have a decent 6 pack and there's no way I'm 10% body fat.
User avatar #21829 to #21820 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/08/2014) [-]
Shouldn't the six pack come with the other muscle growth? It sounds like you are waiting to reach a max muscle status and then trying to get a 6 pack. I'd like the two to go together.
User avatar #21831 to #21829 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Well the problem is that it's difficult to gain purely lean muscle mass. The best you can do is try to gain as little fat for every pound of muscle possible, and even then you'll probably have to cut down after a certain period of time. You can have the best abs in the world, but if you have too much fat you can't see them anyways. Abs really aren't all that great to have anyways. I'd rather have wide shoulders and a big chest.
#21806 to #21802 - baglesbites (12/08/2014) [-]
If you want to build as much mass as possible, you might as well break out all the stops. There really is no down side to creatine that i know of as long as you're not dehydrating yourself
User avatar #21808 to #21806 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Yeah that's pretty true.
User avatar #21803 to #21802 - studbeefpile (12/08/2014) [-]
Creatine has good reviews, but it isn't necessary. I don't take it, and neither do a lot of successful lifters. It can help you out a bit though.
User avatar #21805 to #21803 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Yeah, I mean I know what it does, how it works, and how it usually is pretty effective. Just asking personal opinions really.

Feels bad. Had a crazy weekend. As in got a call at 2am Friday morning and had to be in the next state by 3pm that day. Of course, ate like utter shit (not helped at all by full buffet breakfast at the hotel)

Got back to town at noon today. Fully planned on making up my missed workout from Friday since that's how I have my plan set up to easily make up anything missed by just getting in on a weekend day.

Got tired. Made excuses. Ate more shit since why not (Tbell, Christmas goodies, and Icecream) now sitting on FJ feeling like a failure. It seems I pull some bullshit like this every other week. I'm always on a cycle of gaining weight, losing it, dropping like 1 real pound of fat, then fucking up and rollercoastering my weight back up again.
User avatar #21790 - lobselvith (12/08/2014) [-]
Question: Exactly how detrimental is skipping breakfast to weight loss? I've been planning on eating healthier, and I know that the key to weight loss is eating three square meals a day, but since my work schedule is random, I'm probably going to have to pack sometimes and maybe even skip breakfast.

That's really all I need to know.
#21807 to #21790 - baglesbites (12/08/2014) [-]
Not eating anything may not have a huge impact on weight loss in the short run, but will probably be a mental hell. If you you're already eating at a caloric deficit you may be tired, and not eating after sleeping may lead to a very long fast. If time is a pressing matter, try prepping some breakfast the night before that you can grab and go
#21800 to #21790 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Research has shown it can be detrimental. One study had two groups eating the exact same food, but one group had large, medium and small meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, respectively, while the other group had the opposite. At the end, the first group lost a larger amount of weight. That being said, what you eat is more important, but try not to skip breakfast.
User avatar #21793 to #21790 - jokerjack (12/08/2014) [-]
Zero effect positive or negative. It dependends on what and how much you eat in a day. Many people have had just fine results not eating breakfasts, many people find eating breakfasts gives them more energy throughout the day and makes it easier to eat at a deficit throughout.

Some of you may call me stupid for asking this, but is the Rock on steroids? Look, your first instinct may be to say "OF COURSE!!!" but in all honesty I just don't want to accept that one of my greatest childhood heroes is using roids.
User avatar #21791 to #21788 - jokerjack (12/08/2014) [-]

He's admitted to using them in the past, and with the way his size fluates up quickly for movie roles even at his age makes it hard to doubt he's on the juice. But really, Steroids aren't nearly as bad as media has made them out to be when taken smartly and on a cycle

Rock doesn't compete in any sports where they're banned so why not go for it?
User avatar #21792 to #21791 - donnybergerstory (12/08/2014) [-]
Yeah, he's just such an awesome guy, it would suck to think I can't be liek him without drugs. I know roids arent as bad as media makes them, i watched the documentary Bigger Stronger Faster.
User avatar #21795 to #21792 - jokerjack (12/08/2014) [-]
And yeah. He's def an awesome guy. And any Roid claims by anyone are nothing but speculation of course. Shit, maybe the guy is clean. But I feel with so many people calling him out, if he was he'd do WADA testing on himself to be a total badass and a suck it haters. Not like he can't afford it.
User avatar #21815 to #21795 - donnybergerstory (12/08/2014) [-]
Yeah, I honestly think hes on HGH. He got wayyy taller and his neck, wrists, and head got bigger too.
User avatar #21794 to #21792 - jokerjack (12/08/2014) [-]
Get as big as you can natty. Talking 350 bench, 475 squat, 600 dead. People have def gotten bigger without juice. Those just seem like good numbers to hit and be proud of what your own body can do. Things past that will be very slow without help Then, and only when you hit that point, decide if you want to get some assistance to continue. To me, I'd always feel like I cheated if I got on the stuff.

Full on plan on getting at least Testosterone replacement when I hit my late 30s
User avatar #21801 to #21794 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
Personally, I would use steroids. But only whenever I started reaching my genetic limit, if that ever happened. I like the idea of growing and getting stronger and challenging myself. So if I was stuck because I was about as big as I could possibly be, I would do it only to continue growing and getting stronger.
User avatar #21816 to #21801 - donnybergerstory (12/08/2014) [-]
Personally, I'd never take any type of roids, simply because it scares me. I respect people who do take them though, because a majority of the time they work harder than those who don't take roids. It just terrifies me; the idea of injecting yourself with an oil.
User avatar #21818 to #21816 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/08/2014) [-]
You're thinking of synthol. Steroids can be taken in a pill form, powder form, or be injected. Steroids are nothing more then synthetic versions of your bodies natural testosterone.

I've found that when I'm at work that I sweat more than when I actually work out. What's up with that? I work in a fast food restaurant.
Also, I need some comment's on my routine. I do 15 minutes on the treadmill, 15 on the recumbent bicycle, the I move on to the machines. Let say I move on to the shoulder press machine. What I do it 15 reps at a certain weight, then I add five pounds, and do 20 reps. After that I add another 5 pounds, and then do 25 reps, and move to the next machine. I'm not confident enough to use free weights which is why I stick to the machines. Should I change anything up?
#21784 to #21783 - anonymous (12/07/2014) [-]
It depends in the temperatures of the environment, it doesn't matter if you sweat less in workouts.
User avatar #21776 - guiguito ONLINE (12/07/2014) [-]
I heard most people have 6 packs but have a thin (or not so thin) layer of fat covering it, so no matter how many crunches i do they won't appear. So i need the minimal ammount of body fat for them to appear or can i just do like 60 bench crunches per day till i see them?

No. You gotta eat less then you normally do by about 300 calories.

Hey guys so, I'm currently losing weight and eat one meal a day.. But I'm really craving a burger right now but what's stopping me is that I've just stopped working out, I normally get these cravings but haven't for the past 3 days.. I'm 140 pound at 5ft5/6 my goal size is to be 120 pounds.
User avatar #21775 to #21771 - thisismyhandle (12/07/2014) [-]
One meal a day? Why?
User avatar #21777 to #21775 - slendermanspenis (12/07/2014) [-]
I don't actually have an explanation for it but I never really have the time or I wake up to late for lunch or breakfast.. So its always just the one meal and maybe a little snack on the side which would satisfy for a few days and then it'll be back to the snacking again.. Tommorow I'm fully started my diet (The scarsdale diet) the workouts these past few days are just a warm up to what is actually going to happen..
User avatar #21782 to #21777 - thisismyhandle (12/07/2014) [-]
Dude, fix your sleep cycle and eat more often. You can eat snacks, but just make them good snacks (fruits and veggies are basically the best thing ever for somebody trying to lose weight).

Also, be wary of that Scarsdale diet. I've never tried it, but it sounds like a fad diet. I would definitely advise you to just learn to count calories and use that knowledge to just eat better in general. I've been on diets similar to that one (South Beach especially), and very rarely does anybody follow such a strict diet indefinitely.
#21773 to #21771 - anonymous (12/07/2014) [-]
Thats why weight loss could be difficult, you also have to be mentally strong enough to avoid and not give yourself in. Just dont think about it, play a vidya or something.

Should I go get the burger or leave it be? I've been drinking water all day.

Just made 5 lunches for myself for this week. I am trying out the "Anabolic Diet" which basically is this:
On weekdays; eat very few or no carbs, lots of protein and fats.
On weekends; replenish your carbs and up your calories- i myself will only eat like 50 carbs a day over the weekend because I really am trying to lose fat and weight.

So basically here are my lunches (i will post breakfast and dinner as well after this)
Top 2 lunches- smoked salmon and mixed veggies
Bottom 3- Shredded chicken with mixed veggies.

My breakfast for the weekdays- 3 scrambled eggs
My breakfast for weekends- 2 scrambled eggs and hashbrowns wrapped into a burrito with a large tortilla.
My dinner for weekdays- chicken breast with asparagus and salad

For anyone who wants to know how the anabolic diet works, I'm not the best guy to explain it, but basically throughout the weekdays you cut, and the weekend you bulk- basically like how steroids work (they make you shredded and big at the same time) hence the name of the diet. Now given that I am already pretty fat, I'm not going to go all out on the weekends. I am still going to be conscious of my calories and carbs.

TL;DR here's the new diet im trying out: www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_UUvYrH0QI

Just curious, what is your bodyweight? Also, do you know roughly how much protein you are eating each day?

My weight is 208.4 lbs. I eat 90% of my bodyweight in protein (not sure if that made sense). But anyway 80% of 208.4 is 166.72. So I TRY to eat around 166.72 g of protein, but usually I eat less.

80% body weight is actually the correct amount of protein to get (well, lean bodymass in pounds in grams of protein and most people are around 20% BF).

But that entire diet is nothing but broscience. If it's something you can stick to over the course of 3 to 6 months, then by all means go for it. But it's no better than any "eat X calories and Y grams protein of non processed food" eating strategy.

Like I said, I am not going all out on the carb reloading. I am trying to lose weight, and I am keeping my caloric intake at 1500 for weekdays ad 1700-2000 for weekends. I just chose this diet because it intrigued me.

User avatar #21769 to #21768 - donnybergerstory (12/07/2014) [-]
Oh shit, totally forgot to include how many calories I'm eating a day:
Weekdays- 1500
Weekends- 1700-2000

Kettlebell swings + squat thrusts = glorious. Shit was so intense I couldn't feel my legs afterwards.
