I'm trying to lose weight around my face. Is there any specific exercise I should be doing to focus on for that area?

Anyone have any workout plans to help me increase my muscle mass? I feel like I've been getting very little improvements with my current routine. I was considering on doing Steve Cook's Muscle Building Program. Let me know what you think.

I've exercised for about a year now with cardio/5x5 with a small bit of weight lifting on the side, and I've actually slimmed my body down to where the abs are becoming visible, but my arms (primarily biceps) are still basically sticks still, so what kind of routine would you guys recommend to build arm mass?
User avatar #31743 to #31739 - donnybergerstory (8 hours ago) [-]
Same issue here. Every muscle looks like i lift except biceps..
#31741 to #31739 - baglesbites (8 hours ago) [-]
Chin ups (weighted if possible) and curls for biceps, narrow grip bench and skull crushers for triceps.

I have a question.   
Right now I'm currently just doing simple strength training before I move on to building actual aesthetic muscles and such.   
Basically I just do 3 sets of 5 reps and every time I go back I add 5 lbs (2.5 lbs plates) and my workout is AxBxAxxBxAxBxx so I essentially workout  3 times a week.    
My question is for the more advance stronger people who usually workout 5 to 6 times a week and do 3 sets of like 10-12 reps. How and when do you know when you're suppose to add weight to lift? In my workout I just add 5 pounds to the major lifts like benching, ohp, and squatting (I don't dead lift cause I have a fucked up back) and this just slowly adds up at an easy pace and I don't usually struggle but for people who do 10 to 12 reps, I don't know when you're suppose to add weight to that. Can anyone help me out here?

If you can hit all the called for reps with good form and a full range pf motion, add weight. You don't need to worry about any fancy progressions until your squatting over 300 pounds for reps and benching around 2 plates depending on how much you weigh.

Looking bigger than ever on this cut. 203 right now, hoping to go ahead and get below 200 within the next couple weeks. Goal is about 190 I suppose.

Also, OHP is making gains. Hit 125 for 3x8 today, after heavy benching.
User avatar #31745 to #31737 - marinepenguin (7 hours ago) [-]
I'm gonna catch your OHP with my rear OHP.
User avatar #31749 to #31745 - studbeefpile (6 hours ago) [-]
Hahah, were you at right now?
User avatar #31752 to #31749 - marinepenguin (4 hours ago) [-]
I'll be attempting 105 for 4 sets of 10 next Monday. But I've gotten 115 for 10 on just one set. And I've gotten 125 for 5 just Fucking around.

Watch out man. You better pick it up.
#31735 - anonymous (11 hours ago) [-]
Shit thread I'm 5'8 and ~130 poons and still have some bellyfat
How much more do I need to cut before it goes away/I get to an unhealthy weight
User avatar #31744 to #31735 - donnybergerstory (8 hours ago) [-]
Do u work out abs? It honestly might just look like fat/youthinkitsfat because your ab muscles aren't lArge enough to be visible.
#31746 to #31744 - anonymous (7 hours ago) [-]
I have been but only for a couple weeks
Anyways the oh-so infallible /fit/ sticky says abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym and that abdominal exercise has very little to do with it
User avatar #31748 to #31746 - donnybergerstory (6 hours ago) [-]
Well thats true. Diet is whats going to be the determining factor in getting abs. But you still need a low bf% and for the muscles to really be there. Some people store fat in different places, maybe you store yours in your stomach mostly.
User avatar #31736 to #31735 - studbeefpile (10 hours ago) [-]
I recommend building some muscle to outweigh the fat.

Hey guys, a friend and I are looking for a video, but about 40 minutes of searching has yielded nothing.

It's the video where a group of doctors are being asked questions about weight loss and there's a good number of obese people in the audience. One of the doctor's explains that anybody can lose weight, "Energy in, energy out", and one of the women comments that "Exercise is hard".

are raw nuts and peanut butter bad for clean bulking?
#31742 to #31723 - baglesbites (8 hours ago) [-]
If you're worried about excess sugar, they sell natural peanut butter that has none added. But overall peanut butter is great for bulking
User avatar #31726 to #31723 - marinepenguin (11 hours ago) [-]
Peanut butter is amazing.
User avatar #31727 to #31726 - ieatbengay (11 hours ago) [-]
is it clean though? i eat a lot of it
User avatar #31728 to #31727 - marinepenguin (11 hours ago) [-]
Yeah it's good. Got lots of fats and protein. Very calorie dense.

is using a cardio machine for 5 mins and then use the wieght machines untill my muscles are sore a good way to lose belly fat ?
#31734 to #31717 - KungFuZerO (11 hours ago) [-]
No. Subtracting 500 from your TDEE and supplementing with both cardio and strength training is the way to go.
User avatar #31716 - marinepenguin (14 hours ago) [-]
Felt like absolute shit today. It's so hot and I felt exhausted. Hit 295 for 5 before I failed on 6. Then went down to 175 and did a few sets focusing on form while pausing at the bottom.

Tried a few deadlifts, just 245 for 10 felt like murder.

Gave up there and did some abs. My left knee is bothering me a little bit, so I think it's a good idea to chill a little this week and make it a deload.
User avatar #31729 to #31716 - marinepenguin (11 hours ago) [-]
I was squatting btw. Didn't make that clear.
User avatar #31720 to #31716 - ieatbengay (12 hours ago) [-]
what do you do for abs? they look swole
User avatar #31725 to #31720 - marinepenguin (11 hours ago) [-]
Crunches, hanging leg raises, leg lifts.

All for usually 3 sets of 15-20 with some weight strapped to my legs 2.5-5lbs or so
#31714 - anonymous (14 hours ago) [-]
Should I or should I not lift twice in one day? Such as once at noon and once at night.
User avatar #31715 to #31714 - marinepenguin (14 hours ago) [-]
Don't.
#31713 - anonymous (14 hours ago) [-]
About how many calories do you burn when you exercise? Like you, personally.

What if I have the muscle but I don't have the looks
User avatar #31721 to #31706 - ieatbengay (12 hours ago) [-]
anything over a 5/10 has the potential to be a 10/10 with a good personility, and 10/10 can drop a lot by being bitches or boring
User avatar #31708 to #31706 - marinepenguin (15 hours ago) [-]
Who cares? Looks don't matter as much as people give credit. Sure, you may strike out right out of the the gate more, but people are more attracted to your personality and the vibes you give out.

I've had a few girls that were incredibly beautiful, but they were such negative and down people that I stopped finding them attractive, while I've known girls who are slightly below average who I found attractive because of their funny, bubbly, confident personalities.

I may choose the beautiful downer for a one night stand every time. But I'd always choose the person I'd enjoy being around for a long term partner.

Plus, you should lift for yourself anyways, the attention you get from others is just extra.
User avatar #31719 to #31708 - leal (12 hours ago) [-]
beauty+personality exists tho
User avatar #31724 to #31719 - marinepenguin (11 hours ago) [-]
I didn't say there wasn't. I was simply talking about those specific cases.
User avatar #31705 - psychadelicace (17 hours ago) [-]
Feel like getting fit as fuck, so i will
User avatar #31709 to #31705 - marinepenguin (15 hours ago) [-]
Good. Do it then.
User avatar #31704 - pwnagraphy (17 hours ago) [-]
I haven't squatted in 2 weeks because busy and sick, and when I did it was a bullshit quick low weight squat because I had 30 minutes for gym that day. So I squatted 320 for 3 sets of 2 last night and felt fine


So long story short does anyone know how much one of those stair lifts and a wheelchair costs? Asking for a friend
User avatar #31703 - donnybergerstory (19 hours ago) [-]
When juicing can you eat regular food? Or is juicing strictly a juice diet only? Been wondering this...
#31695 - anonymous (22 hours ago) [-]
I wanna go from 112 kilos to 45-50, how do I do this?
User avatar #31707 to #31695 - fuzzybutt (16 hours ago) [-]
How tall are you? 45-50 kilos is quite light unless you're below 6 feet by some margin.

Either way, if it's just fat loss you want it's as simple as regular cardio, smaller portions and healthier diet. I say simple, ofcourse it's never THAT simple, but it's the basis for losing fat, provided you have the motivation, willpower and energy to keep it up.

Once the results start coming in, it gets easier though. If you consider yourself badly out of shape, just start with 1 - 2 mile walks. Daily if possible, and keep a decent pace. Enough for you to sweat or feel flushed. As you get lighter you'll get more energy and can increase the distance or pace as you feel fit. Setting personal goals can help, pushing yourself to go just that little bit further each time.

I spent last summer cutting my fat down, ended up losing about 30lbs of fat and 4 inches off of my waist just from walking, cycling, jogging and cutting down snacks and meal sizes.

More details would probably help.

cut off your limbs

Okay so I am 5'9 (175 cm) and 185lbs (84kg) I haven't gotten too overweight but I have recently noticed stretch marks, so I am in want of making a change. I can't decide whether I should bulk (I'm a mesomorph), or should drop weight down to 140-150lbs? (63-68kg) Which is healthier FJ? And whichever you recommend how would I go about doing so?
I'm 17 and my Mom is about 5'0 (152.4 cm) and Dad is 6'3 (191 cm) is there any exercises to optimize my height? Or is 5'9 gonna stay my final height
User avatar #31697 to #31689 - ieatbengay (22 hours ago) [-]
5'9 sounds about right, i heard men grow to the average of their parents plus 3 inches which is 5'10.5 for you, depends how old you are

and lose weight first, imo, if you bulk now with a huge layer of fat you will only gain strength without losing fat, meaning you'll look no different, and be no more healthy

Raise your hands towards the sky and chant "GROW GROW GROW"
