Do I make a shake with milk in the morning as well or do I not give myself liver cancer. Working for strength not looks I could give a shit if I looked obese as long as it's all visceral and not in my systems
User avatar #22386 to #22385 - pwnagraphy (1 hour ago) [-]
*77 grams I'm illiterate sorry
User avatar #22397 to #22386 - marinepenguin ONLINE (54 minutes ago) [-]
You won't get liver cancer from drinking milk. Plus adding milk into your protein shakes is an easier way of getting more calories into your daily intake.
User avatar #22401 to #22397 - pwnagraphy (45 minutes ago) [-]
I'm aware, that was said on the fact that I'm drinking a shake before and after my workout with a lot of the powder in it

I used to just do milk and whey in the morning but opted for post workout instead because better gains
User avatar #22402 to #22401 - marinepenguin ONLINE (18 minutes ago) [-]
Yeah it's always a better idea to drink a shake after a workout along with your post-workout meal. But doing a shake in the morning would put more protein in your diet and add a few more calories as well. If you feel you aren't growing to your full potential then I'd take one in the morning as well.

jk, you look good bruh.   
   
   
I'm actually going to be doing my first real cut starting sometime in February (or whenever I hit a 500lb deadlift). Gonna try to get down to about 180 - which would be pretty lean for me. So we'll see what happens with that.

Nice. This is where it starts to get fun. 185 was where the weight started getting heavy for me. 205 took me a couple workouts to get to (16 one week, then 18, then 20).

All 'bout that steady progress mayne.

What are you doing for 20 reps now btw.
User avatar #22345 to #22344 - studbeefpile ONLINE (17 hours ago) [-]
Fucked up my hip after squatting 385, so I haven't been squatting. Just been focusing on deadlifting (been deadlifting twice a week).

When I'm happy with my deadlift I'm gonna go back to squatting with the sole intention of hypertrophy, then I'll cycle strength training back in when I get close to my next comp. Probably gonna run the 20 RSR again.
User avatar #22343 to #22341 - marinepenguin ONLINE (17 hours ago) [-]
I figured, right now I'm not worried about missing a rep, but I had to pause at about 15 res to catch my breath and reset myself. I'm so shaky afterwards and I love it.
#22336 - leal (20 hours ago) [-]
How bad would I look if I cut right now?
I wanna keep gaining mass till my bench hit's 100kg (currently only 65kg 5x5) but I'm tired of feeling fat all the time as well and I feel I'm gonna end up being pretty fat before I hit that 100kg bench.
User avatar #22395 to #22336 - lotengo ONLINE (1 hour ago) [-]
If you start cutting you will dissapear.

You gotta gain atleast 15 kg before bulking bro.

u must be pretty tall then. Cuz you dont look heavy.
Dont eat TO much, look up info on cleanbulking. And do that for at LEAST a year.
Dont wanna trashtalk you, but on that pic there is to lil muscle to go cutting. You'll end up like a stick figure.

You have potential, especially in the shoulders and arms, but you gotta give it time to grow, before you can show

#22379 to #22336 - KungFuZerO (9 hours ago) [-]
Eat more, but make it good. High protein, fruits, veggies, lots of water. If you're lifting heavy you'll gain muscle. You are nowhere near needing a cut.

You're still pretty lean, keep bulking. If you feel like you're gaining too much fat then eat a little less. If you can't eat less, then walk in the morning to burn some more calories.

Listen to KungFuZerO. Hes absolutely right.
#22327 to #22326 - KungFuZerO (12/17/2014) [-]
Absolutely and categorically no.
Everything about that workout will set you up for failure. Ill try to cover everything.
You shouldn't be working the same muscle groups two days in a row, especially if you're a beginner.
Progression at the rate would be impossible.
Flutter kicks are a terrible workout. If you need a third, pullups would be better. If you need an ab workout, crunches and reverse crunches are fine. Flutter kicks work your hip flexors bc you're spine isn't flexing (the action of the abdominals), your hips are.
I probably missed some things but thats the gist of it.
If you want an actual workout that you can do at home, PM me.

How many miles can you run in 30 minutes?

I'm trying to get to 4 miles in under 30 minutes and im wondering if anyone has any experience with it.

User avatar #22351 to #22349 - weaponexplain (14 hours ago) [-]
OK I read the thread. You asked how many miles we could run in 30 minutes. What am I missing?
#22353 to #22351 - youregaylol (14 hours ago) [-]
you missed the part where another bullshitter also said he could run 6 miles in 30 minutes and was called out on it because it's fucking ludicrous.
User avatar #22355 to #22353 - weaponexplain (14 hours ago) [-]
Alright let's walk through this. Right now I can run 5 miles in 30 minutes no problem. Thats 6 minute miles. For me that's easy, I'm a collegiate triathlete and before this I ran cross country and track from 5th grade until the end of high school. My best 5k (more than 3 miles) in cross country was a 15:50. If I was running on roads or a track it would be a lot faster. I also didn't say that I could have done 6 miles in 30 minutes. I said I would have been close. Now that I've moved from all running to dividing my ability to between 3 different sports, I'm not as fast as I was.

tl;dr I'm not bullshitting. If you can't wrap your head around someone being faster than you when you can't hold 7:30/miles thats your problem.

Again, I never said I could do 6 miles. I said I could get close. Maybe in a couple days I'll get out my GPS and get proof of 5 miles.
User avatar #22366 to #22365 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12 hours ago) [-]
You know that at a college level running a 5 minute mile for several miles isn't too far fetched? Even in my small town cross country team. The winner of the 3 mile run would routinely run a little over a 15 minute 3 mile race. That's a small school cross country team. So now try imagine just a small college with 10 times as many athletes.
#22367 to #22366 - youregaylol (12 hours ago) [-]
the question is if i can believe someone can run 6 5 minute miles continuously just based on their word, and the answer is no.

btw did i tell you about my time as a navy seal
User avatar #22368 to #22367 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12 hours ago) [-]
Okay. Fair enough. I'm just pointing out that I can see a college level athlete doing that. Most I've ran is about 4.5 miles I'm that time period and that was when I was in early high school.
#22369 to #22368 - youregaylol (12 hours ago) [-]
I'm sure they can. I'm sure a navy seal could kill 50 people in career.

#22329 to #22312 - KungFuZerO (12/17/2014) [-]
No, running is much better. Its more difficult and provides a small loading stimulus to your bones, where stationing cycling does not. But if you can only do stationary bike, its better than noting.
#22356 to #22329 - anonymous (14 hours ago) [-]

#22377 to #22356 - KungFuZerO (9 hours ago) [-]
I don't know your fitness level so I couldn't answer that. If you have a heart rate monitor, you can track it after you calculate your max and target heart rates. If you're goal is just weight loss and you don't have a HR monitor, I would just say if its easy, go harder. Or look into HIIT.

So I want to add more protein powder to my life, but I'm not sure where to add it. Suggestions?

I prefer it when it's convenient.
User avatar #22388 to #22307 - pwnagraphy (1 hour ago) [-]
Convenience and best gains: Immediately post workout. Don't clean up you last area just drop all the weights and start drinking

Get huge and strong: Immediately before and immediately after your workout

Get Liver cancer: In the morning as soon as you wake up, immediately before and after your workout, right before bed, 1 am, 4 am, repeat cycle
User avatar #22309 to #22307 - TokenWhiteKid (12/17/2014) [-]
why protein powder?
User avatar #22311 to #22309 - severepwner (12/17/2014) [-]
Why not? A little extra always helps, especially since I want to build.
User avatar #22313 to #22311 - TokenWhiteKid (12/17/2014) [-]
Personally I favor cooking over protein powder so I was just wondering if it was budget reasons or what.

Nothing wrong with a little extra protein. Just watch out for those protein farts though
User avatar #22314 to #22313 - severepwner (12/17/2014) [-]
To be honest I have to skip breakfast on mornings I have to get up early, otherwise I'll be late and get a deathly stomach ache. On top of that I often skip lunch for a good while, because most of the lunches served on my campus are unhealthy and taste like shit. So I don't eat until I get home. Because of that I'll only get 2 good meals on a working day.

I also don't like being small, so if adding protein powder can speed my building process, I feel like there's no reason not to take advantage to it. But I'm not sure what to do it with. Adding to water would probably be terrible, it works with shakes but those are a pain to make, so I was looking for a convenient manner to go about it.
User avatar #22354 to #22314 - TokenWhiteKid (14 hours ago) [-]
use whole milk and protein powder

it's an easy way to make that shake 700 calories
#22330 to #22314 - KungFuZerO (12/17/2014) [-]
To answer your question, shakes are the best way. With just water is terrible. Try blending it with milk, peanut butter, and a banana.
If you're only getting two meals a day though, protein is the least of your worries. Make your meals ahead of time and never skip breakfast and lunch. If you're trying to build muscle, your protein and caloric intake needs to be high, but if you're two meals aren't 1500kcal each, you'll be wasting money on protein powder.

Live For This - Hatebreed After 10 months of deadlifting, I've finally hit a 405 deadlift. I hit it in a sumo stance, which I have always been stronger than conventional My best conventional is 385 for comparison even though for the past 5 months or so I have only gone heavy on the conventional stance, not really practicing my technique more than twice a month for sumo. Do leverages really play such a huge role in the deadlift for this to happen? Video is the song I had playing during the pull
User avatar #22310 to #22306 - TokenWhiteKid (12/17/2014) [-]
I don't want to poop on your parade but sumo is the stronger stance for everyone.

The range of motion is drastically decreased so you don't have to pull the weigh as far to lock out at the end of the lift. It's not so much leverages, but moreso spreading the legs out to decrease the ROM
User avatar #22389 to #22310 - pwnagraphy (1 hour ago) [-]
I'm built for sumo and I think sumo deadlift is shit. It puts too much pressure on your spine compared to conventional and your range of motion let's you use less muscles in your legs
User avatar #22315 to #22310 - studbeefpile ONLINE (12/17/2014) [-]
That isn't true. There are a lot of lifters -namely Jonnie Candito- who have tried sumo, and still prefer conventional.

The ROM is decreased a bit, but it does also have a lot to do with leverages. My sumo lockout and my conventional lockout are only about an inch away from each other. The main reason I'm stronger sumo is because of my limb lengths. I have pretty long femurs, which means in a conventional stance the area the power is coming from (glutes, hams, etc) is pretty far away from the bar. However, with the sumo stance, the hips are much much closer to the bar, improving the leverage.

I'm getting some love handles, I'm in one of those moods where I feel like I need to cut back down and get my abs and v-lines back instead of staying the course with muscle gain.
User avatar #22283 to #22263 - studbeefpile ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
Stay the course. You don't wanna be that guy making absolutely minimal gains because he's constantly cutting his bulk short. Make your gains, and when you do decide to cut, it'll actually be worth it.
User avatar #22284 to #22283 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
Yeah yeah yeah. I have days to where I have to remind myself of that. Gotta remember that I started out as a kid with little to no fat on him at all. I don't look bad by any means, people tell me that all the time, I'm just not used to being over 12% body fat at all.

Plus there's no use in cutting right now anyways, I'll lose some size and mass when I go through basic training, so I'll have to build back up after that anyways. Maybe having a little extra fat will preserve muscle mass, who knows.
User avatar #22287 to #22284 - studbeefpile ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
Definitely man. If you're doing a lot of cardio in basic, having fat means that you'll burn it off first before your muscles. If I were you, I'd bulk until you went into basic.

Make those strenf gainz son.

By the way I've never been under 12%, if it's any consolation. #ForeverBulkingBros
User avatar #22288 to #22287 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
Maybe by summertime I can hit 220 pounds if I focus on trying to get some lean gains, I don't want to be so big that I can't run very quick. I still feel pretty damn athletic at 204 pounds right now, plus once it warms up I'll start doing sprints again.

That's no biggie, you're coming from the opposite side of the spectrum as me, you'll get there easily when you want to

And today I'm going for 165 for 20 on Squats. It still hasn't gotten too difficult, but I've had to rest around rep 17 or 18 for a few seconds.

Das it mayne

I've actually never felt un-athletic at all, even now at 210 I can still sprint fast, jump high, climb easily, etc. I wouldn't worry about that too much. Just focus on getting stronger.

Same here, I've actually gotten more athletic as I've gotten heavier, which is weird. The only thing that has suffered for me is my ability to run long distances.

Or you could get someone to handle your love instead.

I have a girlfriend to take care of that.

Your problem is obviously resolved, there is more of you to love and later there when you cut the fat you'll just be loved more densely.

My chest is lacking compared to the rest of my body, how can I make it bigger?
I've decided I'm going to do 100 pushups every night omit weekends to get a start, what are some killer chest exercises to do at the gym?
#22267 to #22261 - KungFuZerO (12/16/2014) [-]
Dont do 100 pushups every night. Thats dumb. Go to the gym and hit chest at least twice a week. At minimum, do flat db/bb press, incline db/bb press, and db flys.
#22268 to #22267 - KungFuZerO (12/16/2014) [-]
5x5 for strength, 4x12 for hypertrophy, and deep pushups to burnout at the end if you feel like it.

While you're doing pushups anyway, try deep pushups. Increases the range of motion, and gets your pecs more involved. It also seems to help move your sticking point upward on the bench.

So I've noticed most of my fat is on my pecs and my stomach area, But not much on my back arms or legs, what excersizes can I do to tone my pecs and stomach?

You can't lose fat in one spot. You have to lose it everywhere.
User avatar #22260 to #22259 - sineztro (12/16/2014) [-]
I see, any tips?
User avatar #22262 to #22260 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
To lose weight or what?
User avatar #22264 to #22262 - sineztro (12/16/2014) [-]
Yeah to lose weight and tone
User avatar #22265 to #22264 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
There's no such thing as "toning", you can either lose fat or build muscle. Lose fat by eating a caloric deficit of about 200-500 calories, and do some kind of exercise like walking or sprinting.

Is a cross trainer any decent way to get more into shape?
I'm not lookin to get super beefed, just to lose some of this extra stuff I've got
User avatar #22273 to #22254 - lotengo ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
you mean like buy one?

I wont reccomend it. Either you get one for a somewhere between 100 and 500 euro/dollar and you got yourself a piece of crap where the given functions dont work properly, a thing that will start squeaking and creaking after a few uses.

Or you buy a professional model for 1000+, and you spent 1000 or more on a device you only have one use for.


Either way its better to join a gym for the cardio equipment, or go for a jog outside.

Just read an article about Kane Sumabat (ripped 41yo who's doing double workouts a few times a week). He said he hugely recommends revere grip bench press.
Anyone ever try it? Like? Dislike?
User avatar #22392 to #22253 - pwnagraphy (1 hour ago) [-]
I used to do them, they use a lot more chest and less tricep, but you put more strain on your wrists to hold it there and if you have babby fingers you're going to fucking guillotine yourself
User avatar #22256 to #22253 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/16/2014) [-]
I've tried them. I feel it more in my chest. It takes triceps out of the equation a lot, so the chest is forced to compensate.

Holidays just starting, so im gonna try lifting again... currently 6'1 137 lbs

When working my triceps, i only really feel a 'burn' just above elbow and not across the muscle (which is small anyway). Is this normal? just feels more like a tendon or something.

Also, i always feel stress in joints, especially elbows. Any way to tackle this or will it dissipate?
User avatar #22250 to #22249 - BwainPhreeze (12/16/2014) [-]
and any general 'beginner' tips
#22251 to #22250 - KungFuZerO (12/16/2014) [-]
You can PM for more tips, Im always happy to help.
As far as what you've posted though, you definitely need to eat more. Like, waayy more. Someone your height with enough muscle can look killer around 200lbs.
As far as triceps go, try incline skullcrushers to work the entire muscle (overhead work allows the entire tricep to be used).
And for joints, just build more muscle and put on more weight. They will strengthen as you go.
