short post because of a fuck up

I just want a little boost so I'm that extra fit looking for the summer for a change.

I don't want to use test because..
>I've trained enough to know it doesn't magical make you huge but I Still I don't need them sort of gains from it and I also don't want feel like I'm cheating too much.

>I'm not scared to use needles but I am sort of scared to get used to injecting and thinking it's a normal thing to do.

Now I'm thinking of doing either winny/anavar or somthing like ostrine and mk677

Online people say not to do orals on there own..shit gains and dangerous.

In real life I've seen a few people do winny and anavar and they have looked good.Nice lean gains,body has went hard and they have gotten a lot stronger and More energy even though they have been dieting hard.

help

i've been lurking for a while and doing my best to learn. i calculated my daily calories and protien and bought a fat jug of protien powder that i use as a daily supplement because i'm skinny and poor and want muscles. since i started eating extra protien i've had way more energy and i actually want to work out.

the problem is all i'm doing is cardio (jogging biking and hiit) and an at home core strength routine

i have access to a student gym and i want to get better defined arms. i don't know what any of the machines are or how to use them.

can you guys help or point me to some websites that break it down for absolute beginners or some other forums?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if your goal is to get bigger, you're going to have to spend more money. There's just no way around that. You need to consume 3-4000 calories a day if you want to gain weight, and don't eat shit while you do it. Animal protein, rice, pasta, vegetables, oatmeal, nuts. All the protein powder will do is make you leaner, it won't help you gain weight if that's what you think it'll do.

I don't think that's entirely true. The further along you go the harder it gets and the more thought you need. Running a surplus isn't expensive. OP needs some protein but yeah, not tonnes but if he's not trying to fit in a tight calorie budget there's tonnes of cheap ways to get the food he needs. Oatmeal isn't expensive. Nuts vary. Rice and pasta are cheap. OP can buy half that shit in bulk and do it cheap. Eggs provide animal protein cheaply, beans are another good source. None of this is costly.

I'm not sure OP needs to run a 1000 calorie surplus either. What you're describing might be optimal but OP is a beginner, as long as everything he does points in the right direction and he has a good routine (and commits to it) he'll make massive gains and probably to the extent he's looking for. He wants muscles, but unless he wants to be super swole he's never going to need to take it as far as you think he does.

I'm not saying your advice is bad, it's probably great advice. It's just not necessary. OP isn't even past the stage when you make gains because your brain is recruiting neurons yet.

Sorry for the double post didn't see this was too busy replying to the guy who loves to stroke himself off with his superior knowledge of semantics before dropping the same tired recommendation for SS.

Protein powder will not make you leaner its just a way to supplement more protein and calories in your diet. That's like saying eating an extra chicken breast a day will make you leaner. The protein powder is good just don't use it in place of a good diet.

Honestly OP just check out the fitness FAQ here https://ceddit.com/r/fitness (I changed the website because wordfilter, but everything you need to know is in the sidebar) its really fucking comprehensive, there are routine recommendations for beginners, and it should have real informative answers on the FAQ that you won't get here.

So lets get a thread going of things you have realised throughout your years or time spent working out, that can benefit others.

I have 2 pretty good things to share, and I feel if we pull together we can get some good tips going.


The first thing I want to share relates to recovery. Everybody is different of course genetically speaking, and so we all need different periods of recovery. Muscle mass is built in recovery, the gym is where we break it down, so it is crucial. I've been lifting only a little over 2 years now, and I saw some decent gains in that time. However things have really started to ramp up when I went from working out 2-3 days in a row with a rets day, to working out every other day.

I've gone from working out specific body parts to doing a push-pull routine that focuses on full body workouts every other day. I have seen a lot quicker and more obvious gains this way. If you're on juice then sue you can get away with a bro split, but I feel for beginners especially, working out every other day is best, and to go balls to the wall on a full body workout on the days you do workout. For me like I said the push-pull method works best. NOT push pull legs, but push one day full body, then pull full body the next.


the second thing that I have realised relates to my arms. Like most people my arms grow slowly, but I feel slower than what is normal as I am fairly tall. I tried all kinds of things to see better gains on my arms, like more volume, different routines etc, nothing really worked.
Then I started to do this thing where after each set that was an arm exercise, I would raise my arms above my head for 30 seconds after each set, restricting the blood flow to the muscle. After a couple of weeks I could see an uptake in gains and then researched more into this. Now I use elastic restrictor bands on my arms when I train them, and still raise them above my head after reach set, they are growing pretty quick now!


So yeah
>post your general tips of things you have come to understand and realise about training and getting gains in this thread, in a bid to offer help to others

Do this, for at least 1 week, best for 2, and obviously if this is challenging stick with it more.

eatthismuch.com - track your food, much better than myfitnesspal or other calorie trackers, has comprehensive search engine
if you want to track, just clear the pre-made list on the website, and then search for foods and track them in the cleared list

>TDEE
http://www.fitnessfrog.com/calculators/tdee-calculator.html

find out how many calories you burn, find out your BMR (choose 0 activity)
and then figure out your calories burned either by choosing an activity level, or googling how many calories are lost per X (bodyweight, running, jump roping) for Y time and add it to your BMR.
It's easier to use the activity setting on the calc, but it does over estimate the expenditure

Depends on what you already have. Also the size of the deficit. The harder you burn and the more muscle you already have the harder this shit gets. The level of exercise probably affects this. I suspect lowering your intake by x calories probably causes more muscle loss than burning x more by using your muscles but this is something experts could verify.

I eat 120-150g most days and can run a 1000cal/day deficit until I'm barely above 10% body fat and retain muscle, and even make slight gains, After that I have to reduce the deficit though I can lose a bit more weight before I start to lose muscle or just tire easily. However I'm not enormously muscular. I am hitting about 180 pounds with a 32 inch waist and I'm 6 foot 1. The girl in Octoberfest up there is marginally less muscular (if she was 6 foot 1 anyway) than me though I am nowhere near as defined. Especially just after christmas. Yeah I'm currently burning fat too.

I train for strength 3 times a week (about an hour but that includes waiting for shit and usually a toilet break because I have no intention of pissing myself and I usually hydrate pretty well pre workout) and do high intensity cardio (half an hour non stop) 3 days a week, I do some core shit (sit ups, raised leg raises etc) on my off day and walk a fair amount.

Hi, how are you? Same.
Hi pals, I need help figuring something out that my googling skills cannot. My girlfriend is an archaeologist to be. This summer she’s revisiting a dig site that she worked on last summer. Being the best boyfriend I can be, I want to be able to help her despite the distance between us(California>Italy).

The dig-wide rule over there is no knees. You have to stand or squat the whole time. I’ve looked up lower back support, long term squat support, searched similar questions hoping for some key words. But all I’ve found are weighted back support for squats and other similar products. Does anyone here squat all the time maybe? Does anyone can help?

She’s going to be squatting for up to 10 hours a day and from what she says, it’s the most complained about thing at the dig. Imagine for a second a world where people use their human brains to overcome hardships with technology instead of “toughing it out bro, be strong”
And as to your physiological dysfunction point, my girlfriend was diagnosed with a rare lower-back arthritis when she was 22. No possible surgery. Just pain meds for life.
Again, just trying to be a good boi here.

If she's in Europe they should have better support for illness. I would say your girlfriend needs to practicing lifting her prescription/diagnosis from her doctor and unfolding that.

I'm not saying they should get on their knees for it, but that there might be some compromise. They can always leave her in standing positions. Standing 10 hours is fine as long as you get to move around and aren't carrying a lot of weight.

Squats and shit will help her all the same. The lower back isn't the area limiting squats so working on that a bit will make her life better. She has 2 months. She doesn't need to lift big, she needs to do endurance. So every day lots of bodyweight or body weight plus a single figure number of KG squats and maybe just lots of holding it. She's got 3 or 4 months to practice so within 3 or 4 weeks she'll either make progress or realise that this just isn't going to work at all. She will be sore the first few days at least. She wants to be mostly doing lots of sets of lots of reps because she's training endurance. She doesn't need massive quads, just the ability to feed the ones she has.

If your girlfriend is not already a healthy weight then reducing the load on her back and knees will help immensely with this also. There's probably no easy answer but intelligently directed hard work will always yield results.

Also someone who actually works on training endurance for stuff may be able to give better advice than me. I figure that practicing squats will either prove she can't do it BEFORE she's out there or she'll get some improvement and it's better than nothing.

I only hit the gym a couple times a month but want to get jacked. My old man knows alot about fitness and is hella jacked and gave me this routine today.

Some might argue that i need to be doing less reps/heavier sets but honestly im weak af right now and I think this will help me build strength before I can adjust to to something better.

Currently 25 years old 5 11 and 175 lb skinny fat. Looking to start this routine tomorrow.

Also also, a higher number of reps with lighter weights will yield better results IMO. I never push myself to the point of failure. 30 minutes a day and a decent diet nothing wrong with a greasy bar burger every so often has kept me at ~135lbs +/- and I'm 5'9".

you want mostly compound exercises OP, and you will want to increase weight every exercise until you plateau and will then need an intermediate program

keep volume low and weight at about 85-90% of your One Rep Max

day 1:
squat 3x5
deathlift 5x1
bench 3x5
row 3x5

day 2:
squat 3x5
deadlift 5x1
powerclean and press 3x5
chinup as many as possible until failure or lat pulldown 3x5 if that's not an option

general tips:
>if you push something, you should also pull with the same group 50/50
>your beginning program is going to increase your neuromotor recruitment, which is baseline 10-15%, and increase the number of motor neurons your brain recruits to do a motion, this is why it is important to TAKE NOTES and increase weight
>focus on good form, look at video tutorials
>work on the foundation first: for a human that is hamstrings and posterior chain; if you don't build the foundation, building the shoulders and arms becomes risky
>if you have trouble getting the bar out of the rack for Overhead Press, just remember to palm strike that fucking jolly african-american like you were Vegeta taking the punch test right before Buu saga

25lb dumbbell BP to start? Somehow I suspect you can and should use a weight that is challenging in that rep range and aim to progress on each session or every other session.

Muscle soreness will plague you for a few days to about a week, but from then its smooth sailing.

Squats and DLs are pretty boss exercises, require many muscles to work in coordination.

Have fun.

In the middle of a cycle of LGD-4033 right now and wanted to give my thoughts on it.

LGD-4033 is a selective androgenic receptor modulator, or SARM, which is a long way of saying it sensitizes the body to its own natural forms of testosterone.

Bought 1g of powder online and have been dosing 10mg daily. The powder is only somewhat miscible in water, but dissolves quite easily in the presence of lipids so I have been using whole milk.

After three weeks, I can say that overall I have had a somewhat increased healing rate; bruises and injuries, especially muscle strain, seems to heal quite a bit faster than expected. Not scientific at all (although clinical studies have been done) but I am experiencing increased anabolism.

In addition, I have experienced a boost in mood and have generally more energy. Not significantly more, but noticable. Furthermore, no shrinking of testes 3 weeks into cycle. I will monitor this with interest to ascertain whether clomid is necessary for PCT, because forums seem split on how suppressive LGD-4033 really is.

Current thoughts: definitely worth the purchase

I suspect after adjusting for water weight (all those calories weigh and draw in water, suddenly having half a kilo of extra carbs going in during a week will pull in a lot more water). It's probably not a pound per day but I guess when we get to mid february we'll see how much progress this really makes. If he really did gain significant amounts of muscle it will show by then.

Still unless he's measuring his waist incorrectly then there's got be muscles gained without fat.

>I have no scientific way of doing this

You don't need to be super precise, just make sure you're measuring the same thing every time and ensuring other factors are consistent.

OP, going forward ensure you're weighing at a consistent time of day but also be consistent with any exceptions the few days before and if you've taken you're morning piss, if you've had your morning glass of water etc.If you have nights you regularly eat differently that's fine as long as you weigh at a consistent time. I eat differently at weekends. Water weight is dismissed as a cop out or buzz word but it's real, it's something you need to consider and control for as it can hide or exaggerate results. It's why after christmas I started dieting on the 2nd and didn't get on the scales until the 10th. I mean sure I'd be able to say "I lost 5KG" but really that first week of data would be meaningless.

Also other information matters for a better picture. How are your lifts going and how is your waistline? Measure it or at least see if you're going in or out notches on the same belt (with the same trousers, things tucked in etc) Also with lifts be wary of the first few weeks progress, a lot of those gains will not be your muscles growing but your brain learning to use them for that lift. If you worked out before starting this and are coming from that angle you'll be okay but if it's new lifts be wary.

So pick a time and day and ensure you're consistent with whether you take that huge shit first or not. Make sure your waist is genuinely coming in and check your weights lifted are soaring. If you're new to working out you were still a few weeks from the point where this is going to be particularly meaningful though.

I suspect some of it is mos def water but I am also increasing my lifts pretty quickly. Tried to take this pic at same time of day, after a wake up piss and three glasses of water. End of month 1 I guess.

Yes, get back to us at the end and do a comparison pic. I'm glad you're making progress, but the guy is right. I'm just glad you didn't include your benis in the bic lmao. Sorry if I'm being rude, I was just trying to be light-hearted about it.

tl;dr: My gym coach/instructor won't help me with the form of Starting Strength exercises. I'll be in this gym only for one month, will I be losing time for doing only what he thinks is the best for me?

He's really into machine exercises mostly, some dumbells for arms and shoulders. I want to commit to SS as I'm skinny af and need a proper introduction into the world of using-your-body-in-a-proper-manner.

If I follow whatever he says to me, even if for only 1 or 1 + 1/2 month, will that hurt my progress if only after this I start SS? I'll change gym because I'll go back to the city where I work and there continue this journey. When talking to the coach of the next gym, I'll try to convice him using better methods.

Nice reply. Thanks anon! I'll follow what he is saying, as he studied whatever it was to be there. I'm doing the best I can with the form, trying to do it slowly and if I can't last to the that one last rep, almost failing, I know it's good thing.

Thanks

Your coach is a faggot, if he would show you all the SS exercises, then you will never use his coaching again. Therefore, he lets you do a shitload of unnecessary machine work that you don't need and that does not stimulate all the small muscles that you need to build a foundation of strength. Look up videos of Alan Thrall on youtube for form tutorials on the big lifts and please get rid of your coach and start Starting Strength.

TL;DR
Machines are useless, unless you are rehabilitating and need assistance with stabilizing a load. Use Barbells, Dumbells, Kettlebells,Clubs and Maces. Even Calisthenics. Just not machines. Your Instructor sounds like he doesn't know what he is doing NOR like he is meeting your specific needs. Ill list a few good sources at the very bottom of post.

Rant:
Machine exercises are virtually useless. There are 3 axis of movement. X, Y and Z. This is going to get a little rambly, and simplified at times, but please bear with me.

X is the direction you wish to work to move a load or exert force. Y and Z are the forces you have to fight to stabilize the load you wish to move. In every real world application of strength, you are resisting Y and/or Z with your stabilizers, when you are both moving and static, along the X plane.

Machines hold you responsible for X work only. They completely eliminate Y and Z stabilization and also distort the load you are bearing through:

1) Pulley Systems
2) Neglecting Stabilizers

This means, that 100lb load will feel more like an 80lb-90lb load and will not prepare you to deal with a real 100lb load as you will not build stabilizer strength.

i agree with everything you said except for recommending kettlebells and maces to a beginner. i think one should at least have a moderate foundation with barbells and dumbbells before progressing to the more awkward shapes to reduce chance of injury

So a few years ago I got into lifting, got myself pretty big and I've never really felt better about myself than those times, then a long term relationship happened and i kinda let myself go for a while. I did build myself back up about half a year ago but then i got pretty sick for a few months and lost pretty much all muscle mass and became very unhealthy.

My relationship recently ended and I know building myself up will make me feel better but I just can't find the motivation. Something that doesn't help is that I had access to testosterone and Dbol for both times i've built myself up and i can't afford to buy a course right now to do it again. This kinda makes me doubt the progress i'll be able to make and puts me off even more.

>How do you keep yourself motivated, have you ever lost everything you've gained and then built it all back up?

I have found myself wanting to jack off aound the same time I would be lifting, and while I would ordinarily just wait til I was done as a form of reward, I never noticed pre-work ejaculation causing me any issues or demotivation.

never again wanting to feel like a fat slob is enough to motivate me. seeing my disgraceful body in the mirror makes me so fucking angry.
haven't missed a week since I began a year ago. I'm so used to it now that I don't even need motivation, I just do it out of habit. if I skip a workout, I just feel wrong.

I used to be a fat slob, now I've gone through a year and a half of boring weight loss and spent several years enjoying actually being fit I can't go back. Sometimes though I go nuts for a week or so, and I think it's good in the long run but then I have to get back on the wagon hard for a while before I can go back to normal. Dieting for 4 weeks at the start of January and a couple of weeks here and there is worth it to not look in the mirror and hate what I see (some of it I even like a bit).

Today's pancake day and tomorrow's discount chocolate day but when I'm eating a lot not skipping the gym becomes more crucial. Encouraging my body to store fractionally more muscle and fractionally less fat probably isn't noticeable over 2 days but it adds up over a a dozen such breaks in a year and the aforementioned December period I usually notice I'm stronger in the second week of January. I figure that the gains happen by the 2nd but it takes a few days of not eating carb crash inducing shit to actually feel the benefits.

Is doing push ups and sit ups and other body weight exercises enough to at least get you muscular?

What this guy said mostly but there's a few caveats.

If you end up running a small calorie deficit (you'd have to be in balance before and spend a lot of times doing these)/ you might gain some definition. If your muscles are really small they might grow. To experience hypertrophy you still need a level of challenge during your 8-12 reps (x3-5). Sit ups and push ups are "I'm not a piece of shit" tier fitness and so you will outgrow them very early if you're not fat, don't get me wrong they have their place and are good to do, but they will not make you muscular. There are ways to use your body weight to challenge yourself more but it is doing things the hard way. If you're broke there's "convict conditioning" style, because there's lots of harder variants on body weight (plus you can hold stuff, carry a bag etc) but if you have a choice lift weights but like any work out you want to put some thought into working all your muscles hard, several times over the routine/cycle.

Also if you can easily do a thing every day you're better off doing something a bit harder you need a day to recover from.

I used to do parkour ten years ago just around when I was getting out of highschool and I was, as told by others, "ripped." I never used weights, and my only exercise besides parkour was sit ups and push ups. As long as you keep the fat off your body you should be decently strong and well defined just from body weight exercises.

If you have access to weights and equipment then I highly suggest lifting weights instead because it is significantly more efficient at building a muscular body.
