I keep hearing that getting fit builds confidence, but in my time training up to meet the army fitness standards (that's why I was training) my self-confidence hasn't risen above rather poor. What's going on?
#12478 to #12477 - anonymous (02/21/2014) [-]
That's most likely because the standards required to join the army are absurdly low and any average lazy piece of shit could meet them. Achieving your goals with strength training and having a nice looking body you worked hard for however will usually raise your confidence.
User avatar #12479 to #12478 - anonrandom ONLINE (02/21/2014) [-]
I don't mean the mere entry targets, I'm at the required fitness level for serving soldiers. I do look fit enough people have commented on it too.
#12480 to #12479 - anonymous (02/21/2014) [-]
Doesn't matter. Unless you're in the marines or some shit like that, army fitness standards are trash and even the more elite levels are still mostly endurance. Go deadlift 500lbs and see if your confidence doesn't rise

Ok fitness i know this board is slow and i'll wait as long as it takes for a reply but here it is:

I lift nothing, i am a 15yr old skinny white boy from UK

So, starting from the literal bottom how do i get stronger, upper body, lower body, stamina?

I already own dumbells from 1-20kg or 2.2lbs to 44lbs if i remember correctly
i am able to splash the cash if needed but would prefer not to, also just like a guide on when to work out and how much to do ect..
User avatar #12473 to #12468 - bababadsheep ONLINE (02/20/2014) [-]
Is you country as shitty as France and does not allow the youth to use gyms? If not, get a gym membership. Eat big to get big, squats and oats, Gallon of Milk a Day, and make sure you are doing calisthenics plus DEADLIFT, SQUATS, BENCHPRESS, and CLEAN and PRESS. Don't do cardio.

I think that about covers it.
User avatar #12475 to #12473 - teoberry (02/21/2014) [-]
Wait what? You're really telling that to a skinny 15 year old with nothing but dumbbells? Get real buddy. You really think he can afford a gallon a day? You're really recommending someone who knows nothing about fitness go straight into clean and press and bench presses? IF he can get a gym membership, he should start with machines.

I'm gifted with decent legs without having to train legs much. Having fucked up feet led to fucked up knees so I can't go too heavy with squats.

Deadlifts also give me the illusion of thick legs

thats always an issue never waste time with bad kru's. I'd go boxing they stress cardio big time and that should help you shred.
User avatar #12446 to #12445 - thisismyhandle (02/15/2014) [-]
Both will get you into incredible shape if you are consistent. Based on my (somewhat limited) experience, you should be able to work out which one you prefer when you begin training.

I wish I could help you find a gym, but I don't have much to offer. I went to one because of a friend and lucked out with a good one. My gym was fun, the trainer was incredibly skilled (and hungry, because he was actually training in an attempt to make it big in the UFC. He was training in Hawaii when I last heard from him), and we were pretty much always lighthearted and tried to make things fun for each other.

Most gyms I know of offer a short but free trial run, so you could try that and even sign up for a short while if they'll let you to try and test out each gym you choose.
User avatar #12448 to #12446 - buttfacemugee (02/15/2014) [-]
Also do you know which one is better for self defense?
User avatar #12449 to #12448 - thisismyhandle (02/15/2014) [-]
Against the average person without much or any training, I'd say boxing would be better simply because most people won't start throwing kicks out in a fight (and if they do and are untrained, it won't matter much). If you end up fighting somebody else who has martial arts training, I might say kickboxing just for the fact that there is stand-up grappling.

If you want to improve self-defense you can train in something like Krav Maga which is a mix of many martial arts forms with more of a focus on tactics for realistic encounters. I don't believe you can compete in it, but it would be far better than boxing or kickboxing for self-defense.

So I don't wanna lose weigh, I wanna gain weigh about 10-20 lbs if I could.

User avatar #12683 to #12434 - starJOCK (03/04/2014) [-]
i put on roughly 20kg (45lb) in around 2 and a half months.
now that i have your attention, im about to propose something.
this may not take your fancy, and you will more than likely gain a bit more fat but it worked wonders for me.
try the 'whole-food' diet, also commonly known as the 'see-food diet'
the premise of this is to eat whole amounts of food (so whole chickens, whole pizzas, whole tubs of ice cream :p)
you will easily consume more than enough calories to gain weight.
i did this in conjunction with an incredibly taxing, and intense strongman routine, 5 days a week. i blew up, put on at least 13kg of muscle (at the expense of 7kg of fat). on this diet i was on 4500-5000cals
anyways, i only did this too put on weight for the rugby season to become a front row, and i needed to do it quickly. this is what i suggest.
now if you want to put on clean mass, i suggest a protein shake 2-3 times a day, along with a good balance of clean carbs and meat (fucking any kind of meat). it will be a tad slower, but there will be a cleaner gain.
on this diet i would suggest 3000-3250

this is a vary vague post so if you have any quesitons please ask

I'm 16 and do swim and track. I'm already decently toned from those and I own a bench press, some dumbbells, and a curl bar. What should I do to build a little mass?
#12433 to #12431 - syntheticwatermelo (02/13/2014) [-]
And I mean some ideas on workouts for arms, chest and core.
User avatar #12435 to #12433 - alphajunk (02/14/2014) [-]
If you quickly wanna bulk up or build mass,try to buy some whey.
almost every bodybuilder uses this,but in your case buy and take a small amount.

if not, i recommend you to go easy on yourself and eat some food that would get you to gain a little mass. like for example home food.
I always try to get my mom to make a fat home meal,because usually parents(moms) know how to cook and it pleases you because you and your body are used to it by now.
I can't put a whole paragraph so ill just post really useful links from my favorite site.

Ill add in a extra bonus workout if you're up to it.
3x12 of sit ups on the bench press
4x6 squats and pullups
5x8 deadlifts

User avatar #12440 to #12428 - delphine (02/14/2014) [-]
If it's muscle soreness, and not an "i pulled something" soreness, that's a good thing. You want that. It means that you accomplished something during your workout. Your muscles are repairing themselves and just keep at it you'll feel a little less sore each time.

User avatar #12432 to #12430 - alphajunk (02/13/2014) [-]
It depends how old you are and how your stamina is.
Just keep on working, your body will start to get use to it. It wont be easy,but pain is gain.

aching is pretty much a natural response to this type of situation.
I recommend that you take something to get your muscles relieved like putting on a icyhot patch.

Jogging. There are a bunch of forest-y trails where I live (Northern MN) so I love running through nature. I also enjoy hiking through the river valley areas, lots of steep areas for extra burn. Winter sucks because most of the trails turn into either snowmobile tracks or snow drifts taller than me, so I have to run on a treadmill with an incline instead. I hate it so much because it feels like I'm a gerbil on a wheel, but I can usually make it more entertaining by watching a movie while I run.
User avatar #12425 to #12419 - thisismyhandle (02/13/2014) [-]
I enjoy sprints, anything involving jumping, and cardio workouts that include activities that are akin to drills for sports. Long jogs/runs are the worst.

Basically anything dynamic is good.

User avatar #12422 to #12415 - urinarytractinfect (02/13/2014) [-]
bro heavy weight builds muscle. just make sure to do warmups before. as long as you give a shit youl get tone. since ur not roiden up you arent going to gain much if any bulk. espicially since your not an active body builder year round.bulking big not on roids takes yeeeears. google scooby workouts. hes not on roids and he lets u know the long ass time will take to gain at least size like him.but get some really good preworkouts and take them every day. and have a rest day. the most powerful preworkout i know of is called 1 3 d nox by tbn (total body nutrition). it will get u where u want. but if u dont want to buy online. stuff called GAT preworkout is sold at gnc and vitamin shoppe. and thats pretty good coming from shit stores like that.

So I DEP'd in last week. This inspired me to eat healthier (I ate pretty healthy with exercise but still ha some fast food and chips and shit). So instead of eating ships with a sandwich at work and stuff for snacks, I snack on baby carrots and eat apple slices and a banana with a sandwich for lunch. I even drink half of a 5 hour energy in the morning before work instead of coffee.

And I have to say..... I feel a lot better and even ran a 7:30 mile mostly uphill with some later walking, uphill jogging, straightaway sprinting. (as opposed to my previous 8:10 mile and quitting).

What do you guys eat/snack on that helps keep you active?

Figure out your maintenance calories and eat more than it. One pound is about 3,500 calories. There are tons of free sites and apps, like MyFitnessPal, that let you do this based on your height, weight, and activity level.

Say you burn around 3,000 calories a day. Eat 3,500 each day and you gain a pound a week since 500 surplus calories a day for seven days a week adds up to 3,500. Eat more if you want to gain faster.

Seriously, just read the sticky on /fit/ and start lifting. You're already a skeleton so you're starting off well and could gain a lot of lean mass.
