Is it possible to not gain weight even when you're doing nothing. I used to have a physically demanding job and I lost around 60+ pounds and gained alot of muscle in my legs during those months. After the job ended I haven't done a thing for 2 months I would "occasionally" go to the gym every now and then. Alot of the muscle has deteriorated but I haven't gained weight. I don't even eat healthy either so it couldn't be that.

Muscle weighs more than fat. So the fat is slowly taking over as the muscle withers away.
User avatar #11647 to #11646 - mondominiman (11/16/2013) [-]
Will you gain muscle back faster if you start to exercise the old muscle.Or do you have to work on it as if you didn't workout at all.
#11648 to #11647 - unncommon (11/16/2013) [-]
Uhh to my understanding after you've already developed a muscle it's easier to redevelop.
Imagine it as a house that's rotted out, it's easier to repair one with an existing foundation than to build it from the ground up.
User avatar #11649 to #11648 - mondominiman (11/16/2013) [-]

As long as you're not consuming at a caloric surplus, you won't gain weight
User avatar #11626 to #11625 - mondominiman (11/14/2013) [-]
Well I haven't been eating that much seeing as since i'm not doing anything I'm really hungry. I eat like twice a day and they're not even big meals more like small snacks.
User avatar #11623 to #11617 - alphabethsoop (11/14/2013) [-]
The muscle you are losing is turning into fat so you won't gain any weight until after all the muscle that you gained from that job turns to fat.

I've been sick for ever. I lost five pounds and haven't lifted in two weeks. Tomorrow's arms day (doing bodybuilding to get some size back). After that Legs/Core, then Chest/Back.
>pic is my agenda for tomorrow
It's amazing how much you lose in such little time, hopefully it comes back easily but I'm not sure.
Once I'm satisfied with bodybuilding I'm going to focus more on function and do maybe 1 - 3 BB sessions a week.

Squatting

do you want max or workout sets
User avatar #11628 to #11612 - tittentei (11/15/2013) [-]
never maxed squat, but I guess it's around 80kg
max bench = 87.5kg
max deadlift = 150kg

What's your resting heart rate alphabethsoop?


Inb4 sub 60
User avatar #11664 to #11574 - delphine (11/17/2013) [-]
my resting heart rate has always been fast. It used to run around 100bpm until I started running and after 2 years it's down to 80bpm. Still high, but normal.
User avatar #11587 to #11574 - alphabethsoop (11/13/2013) [-]
its seems to be about 80 why do you ask?
#11596 to #11587 - Womens Study Major (11/13/2013) [-]
Was just wondering since you run a lot and shit. I would have expected it to be a lot lower for you actually since mine's about 80 and I haven't ran in months


Lowest I got it to was 60
User avatar #11606 to #11596 - alphabethsoop (11/13/2013) [-]
Maybe it has to do with my asthma or something lol
User avatar #11582 to #11574 - sommerli (11/12/2013) [-]
How does hearth rate affect you? Not as in OP, but "you" the general person.
User avatar #11583 to #11582 - thisismyhandle ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
If you have a stronger heart, your heart rate will be slower because it can pump the same amount of blood in less "beats". This makes the heart's job while resting much easier. Also, if you ever need to pump a ton of blood somewhere for the oxygen, your heart is far better equipped to do so.

It's almost like you need to do a bunch of 20 pound bicep curls and you trained so that you can curl up to 100. You will be able to curl the 20 much easier than if you hadn't made your muscles stronger, but you also can lift that 100 if need be.

[spoiler] That was not my best analogy, but I think you get my point. [/spoiler]
User avatar #11570 - delphine (11/12/2013) [-]
I've always run either outside or on a track, but now that it's getting cold out and I have no access to the indoor track at college, I'm forced to join a gym and use a treadmill. But I have a secret confession: I am secretly afraid of treadmills. I don't like the idea of the ground moving so fast underneath me. I used to have dreams of falling on a treadmill and knocking my all teeth out.

How can this girl get over her irrational fear of treadmills?
User avatar #11588 to #11570 - alphabethsoop (11/13/2013) [-]
Running in the cold is great. Just buy some nice running tights and get a windbreaker or some long sleeve shirts and you will be fine. Trust me, you will love it.
User avatar #11590 to #11588 - alphabethsoop (11/13/2013) [-]
Also if you live where it snows a lot then you really only just need to do is wear think long socks. You should be fine without much more on if you are doing long distances and the snow will increase your workout intensity which will make you 10times better in the spring when it really matters.
User avatar #11594 to #11590 - delphine (11/13/2013) [-]
You must live somewhere warm. I live in North Dakota... Negative 20 degrees. 2 feet of snow is a mild year. Last year there were parts of the trail with drifts taller than me. There are days school and work is canceled because the cold is too dangerous to leave your house. I don't think cozy socks will help. We are a hardy breed, but not insane.
User avatar #11595 to #11594 - delphine (11/13/2013) [-]
also, don't forget that lovely straight line wind that blows colder air and snow in your face. Could bring that -20 to a -30 with wind chills. Oof-da!

Winter is the best weather to run in. Run outside and stop being a pussy. Fuck treadmills
#11581 to #11573 - delphine (11/12/2013) [-]
Hell no, I'd have to be insane. I live in North Dakota. There are many days when they don't plow the sidewalks, and everything is covered in ice. Some winters we'll have 3 feet of snow with drifts taller than me, and other days it hits -20degF. It is simply not possible.

Hail fitness of Funnyjunk, for I have a question.

So my running shoes just got ripped to the point where the hard part of my shoe is now sticking out enough to actually cut the skin where my calcaneus would be. So instead of running for my cardio which I do everyday besides saturday, I've switched to jump ropes. I do wear my lifting shoes since they are the only shoes I have left and are flat footed and so I was wondering, does anyone find jump ropes harder/more intense than running? or no?
User avatar #11592 to #11560 - alphabethsoop (11/13/2013) [-]
Buy new running shoes or you can always try pool running which is a cardio workout but no impact so you actually heal yourself at the same time.
User avatar #11567 to #11560 - lolpandas (11/12/2013) [-]
Yup, but I can't jump rope as long as I can run so it evens out more or less.
User avatar #11571 to #11567 - ehzio ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
But I was wondering, does jump roping burn more calories than running? or is it the same/not the same/ or no?

Uh, heh, that's a good question. I dunno yet, it's up in the air right now. Our JV team needs a goalie, which I can do, but my coaches had planned for me to have varsity prep as a defensive middie, but I also played some LSM on our fall team, and I've played attack all of my life. So not too sure.

User avatar #11579 to #11578 - thisismyhandle ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Well, if you want to get stronger, you could go for a simple routing like this:

Bench Press: 5x5
Deadlift: 5x5
Squat: 5x5

If you did this three times a week for a month, you would definitely improve overall as well as develop a good overall strength base, especially because they are all compound exercises. If you do these exercises for only 5 reps at a time, make sure you don't go to failure because you can hurt yourself pretty easily that way.

Also, you may want to run a bit to get in shape. In case you don't have a routine for that already, you could try this:

Sprint (100%) for 15 seconds, rest for 60 seconds -- complete for a total of 12 times

You would want to do this 3 days/week as well. If this is too easy, you could lower the rest time to 45 seconds or even 30 seconds, and if that is still too easy, raise the sprint time to 30 seconds.

I bench with dumbbells, and I tend to keep my lifts above 5 reps per set to minimize stress on my joints and keep sarcoplasmic hypertrophy high, so I don't have much of anything for max stats. My best guess:

Do NOT overwork sore muscles. The soreness is the body repairing the cells to create new ones so that the muscles can withstand the workload you just put on it.
#11526 to #11523 - Womens Study Major (11/07/2013) [-]
Mobility work, stretching, and foam rolling can help a bit. The best thing to do is just workout again though. Working the sore muscles is really the only sure way to get rid of soreness

I've heard that song plently of times, I just don't listen to that while lifting. It's DMX with the occasional African rap song thrown in there. And I've never seen a lefty's stance at the gym, I'll have to check it out. What's it like?

when you take your stance a orthodox puts left arn & leg forward(weaker parts, let them take the hits). i as a south paw lead with my rights, but shadow boxing is something that comes to a southpaw easier than a orthodox. shodow boxing puts you against a person in the opposite stance, IE my shadow is an orthodox, what most people are, while theirs is a southpaw(rare), so they don't think they have to worry about us because we have fewer people. Oscar De La Hoya is a southpaw, or that is what they have him under, don't know if he switches durring fights though.
