What this guy says. Just go in there with the intention of exercising and don't overthink it. The more time you spend in the gym the easier it will be to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new.

gotta start somewhere.. You can either stay at home bitching about it or get to the gym. I was really anxious about going for the first time but after the first session I wanted to go back ASAP. Also I find y workouts are a lot better at the gym than at home, i.e. I have more stamina and endurance, not sure why that is. Maybe because other people are there so you feel you have to give it your best

Home workouts suck because you don't get the mandatory, "Well I'm here so better make the best of it." that a gym forces. Homes have shitty air circulation in small rooms which makes them suck balls to work out in. And you can postpone home workouts too because it is at your literal doorstep.

Also, just go OP. That is the hardest part. Just get in your car and drive to the place. Once you've done that, the rest will all fall into place.

I threw my protein shakes away because I have finally discovered the ULTIMATE SOURCE of protein. Gallon of semen a day. The nutritionals blow milk out of the fuckin sky, and the male hormones in it build your gainz better than anything else.

Semen is the ultimate body builder protein. If you aren't drinking AT LEAST a half gallon every day, you aren't gonna make it brah.

Probably going to sound like a stupid question but are the calories in vodka bad?
Apparently there can be 50-70 calories per shot, and for someone watching their calories that could be a load especially if they drink a lot
are these calories bad? because also apparently vodka doesnt have any fat or sugars or sodium or anything
so what makes them bad?

Alcohol is a carbohydrate.

I've seen a lot of conflicting shit but it seems like "alcohol calories" are very slightly "discounted" but maybe you only end up getting the effect of 90% of them.

Spirits are the lowest calories per unit if you're trying to get drunk. Vodka is mostly alcohol and water and if you are trying to get drunk on a calorie budget it's the way to go. However someone who "watches their calories" need to account for the vodka they will drink. Because they are drinking I would say they should calculate in advance and make some generous calculations. If you're drinking a bottle assume the whole lot is going down. That may be dangerous but then if they don't drink the whole bottle they a) don't make an ass of themselves and b) can eat a bit more later.

Calories aren't intrinsically bad. It depends what you're trying to achieve and what else you've consumed. In a void they're just an measure of energy. Nothing more, nothing less.

Long story short I work in construction(cladding) and I've been working long ass days mainly due to commuting,wake up st 5.30 to get to work for 8am then finish about 3.30/4pm get back home at5.30-6pm.i go the straight the gym from work as going back and forth is another 30-40 min walk so really I don't come home u til 7pm.
>I average about 8-10miles walking a day.6is back and forth from work the rest is around site up and down stairs and carrying things.Oh I also carry 15kg back pack to and from work with my drills in them.

On top of that I'm renovating a house when I get time through the week after work or mainly of the weekend for a few hours.

So any way I stupidly tried to do 5x a week single body split,go for a little swim twice a week and try to rip apart and do this house up and now I'm burnt out and laying of the weights for 2 weeks.

I need a plan for when I come back tho,I need something hard enough to build muscle but not burn my self out.

I was thinking of trying the Texas method again for a few months,I don't really want to squat 3x a week.

What do you think ?

Im in a similar situation, working 9 hr days with a long commute as an electrician on a huge skyscraper, just started running a mk677 cycle dosed at 30mg in the morning and noticed my lifts have been going up visciously and my energy levels are crazy with the only side effect being minor fatigue throughout the day and some serious water retention.

Sarms are RCs.
If you want to do roids (and yes sarms are roids) I'd suggest going with traditional steroids which have been tested for decades and make sure to follow the proper safer use protocols. That way if shit goes sideways at least there will be unlimited amounts of information out there to help you much unlike sarms.

Sup /ana/

I figured 420chan would be the best place to get some advice.

I'm fat. For the first time in my life. I'm uncomfortable, insecure, and embarrassed to be in pictures. Most of my life I was ~150 pounds (6'1) then growing into my adult body I hit 180, and was happy and looked filled out. Now I'm at 220 and I legit feel fucking gross. My weight has been pretty steady for a year or so.

I have an eating problem. I was in a high stress job for a couple years and ate a ton of really fucking awful food. I kind of got lazy, gave up, and ate whatever I want whenever I want (no fast food, no soda, just lots of garbage.)

I'm lazy. I'm looking for a short term solution to cutting calories. I'm actually looking to cheat. I'm curious if there are any weight loss pills that work. Whether they speed up metabolism, curb appetite, I don't care. I have 3 bottles of hydroxycut which I'm 99% sure are bullshit, but I don't know.

Short of amphetamines, are there any legal/illegal pills that work? Any hacks to stop being a fat fuck? I've tried eating less in the past by slowly cutting portions, snacks, replacing meals, etc etc etc and I always suck.

If you cheat you won't address that you currently eat for 220 pounds so you'll drift up. I am going to tell you what you don't want to hear because it's the actual right answer. You can do stims and lose weight but you'll be destroying yourself on stims or you'll just put it on when you stop.

You can lose 2 pounds per week easily by running a 1000 calorie deficit. And if it's via exercise and a thought out diet sure it's harder but the benefits are greater. Feeling fit and great will in time be "easier" than taking the short cut. And that's the thing. The easy short term route often ends up harder in the medium and long term.

Arbitrarily changing things without locking down everything else will fail because you just tend to compensate in other ways. Instead of just eyeballing it try counting. I lost a bit of weight by cutting out alcohol and high calorie shit but that got me from 300 to 280 pounds I'm around your height and I bounce between 170 and 190 depending on the season and water weight, 90% of the time I weight 175 to 185 and that puts me around 10-15% body fat

>calorie budget and don't buy what you don't plan on eating before you next reach the shop. Don't keep food you can graze on. Make sure it needs a lot of prep.
>Make sure you satisfy macro and micro nutritional needs. You can probably do this with 1000 calories which leaves a little room to not eat optimally which is good for your sanity
>don't eat under 1500 calories though. This is below maintenance for your target weight if you lay in bed if you actually exercise the weight then falls off
>Have your first meal as late as possible if you find it's hard to stop once you start.
>Breakfast being the most important meal doesn't mean you need your sugary carb flakes with sugar. It means make it count, fibre and protein.

Oh I plan on making lifestyle changes as well. I work 10+ hour days. I'm sure I have lots of "excuses" like having to drive 3 hours a day, and not having time for meal prep. My first order of business is slowly titrating calories. I want to see relatively fast results. I'm fulling aware of the consequences of "cheating." I know this is a short term solution to a long term problem.

I want to buy lgd and mk677 in powder form and turn them into liquid my self (because it seems to be a bit cheaper)

How do I workout the math for it tho?

With the lgd I want to be able to messaure it out in 2.5mg doses
With the mk677 5mg doses

From what I've read peg or ethanol seem the best liquid to us

now won't different chemicals be at different doses with the same liquid.
Lgd 1gram to 30ml liquid would be a different dose per 1gram mk677 to 30ml

Any guides on how to do this ?

what's your current intake, specifically what are your goals? What is a little bit of muscle? How much weight are you trying to drop?

I'm willing to bet that if you ate the same amount but made sure it was moslty protein (60%) fats 20% and complex carbs 20% while avoiding all simple carbs and sugar you'd achieve your goal

My goal is to just slim down a bit so probably 10-15 pounds and as far as muscle goes I just plain don't work out so I'd like to at least get toned I'm not going for the lifter look or anything
If I had to guess my consumption it would probably be around 2300-2500 a day, I eat moderately healthy meals, no frozen foods, rarely ever get fast food maybe twice a month and I don't drink soda. My real problem is I snack quite a bit but it's usually stuff like nuts or rice cracker mix
I downloaded an app and it said I should try to cut down to 1800 a day which is doable. I've just been trying to think of little things I can cut out like for breakfast I usually do 2 over easy eggs and toast, I can make that better by just not buttering the toast. Don't really need it anyways since I dip it in the runny egg

yeah 1800 will drop your weight, your diet sounds good overall just reduce the portions, those calorie counting apps are okay in my experience makes it easier.

As for looking toned you're not really going to achieve that without building a bit of muscle. It's not that bad and you seem to already have the motivation with regards to the diet so i don't see it being difficult for you do do 30 mins of pressups and some sit ups now and again.

When i started working out I really got into it a lot more than i expected, it's very rewarding and fun. If you were looking into it, strength training is fun enough get your cardio from walking / cycling and maybe playing some sports or doing outdoorsy stuff. I always found cardio in a gym to be boring as fuck and far too easy to give up on.

Anyway if you're really not going to work out at all you'll just get slimmer.

It's decreasing carbohydrates and for the most part, getting people to look at caloric and macronutrient content and avoid sugar

caloric deficit is cruise control for weight loss

>This is where you went full retard though.

Okay, let me add onto my statement, you need carbs to progress in strength and performance.

If you want to lose weight, by all means. I fully understand ketogenic diets, and the joke is, you can simply take ephedrine and caffeine and your body will go into ketosis even if carbs were eaten 8 hours prior.

I would like to see someone go on a ketogenic diet and make strength/size gains.

You are really wrong though. You don't need to eat carbs. They are synthesized out of fat in your body.

I was at a really low weight at the beginning of last summer, like 145 lbs at 6ft. On a keto diet eating 3000-4500 calories per day and lifting moderately I was at 175 lbs by the end of the summer.
Sure the gain was like 33% (dont remember) fat, but the point is, you don't need carbs for SHIT, and honestly, with their context in human history (prehistory I guess), you shouldn't have carb-based foods EVER if you value your full health.

Another biology student here, de-novo glucogenesis is ineficient, and carbs are the best source of energy for the human body. Also liver damage and decreased insulin sesitivity can and does occur if a ketogenic diet is implemented for a long time. Likely dou to the saturated fat that is eaten along with it (inevitably, even if you just ate plant based- foods). Peace and nb

I know roids are a pretty drastic option given the side effects, and there's also HGH (which is apparently expensive as all hell and can have pretty bad side effects too if you aren't careful).

Anything less dramatic that I can do on top of diet and exercise to accelerate results a bit?

Buy Dianabol or Turinabol from your local roid emporium and pop 10-20mg of either per day - 4 weeks on/4 weeks off. You'll get a very respectable and noticably solid body in short order. Not to mention your strength will jump hugely.

Go for D if you have under a 34 inch waist, T otherwise.

Both are real athletic drugs unlike most roids. Both are low on the androgenic scale, so you will not get estro sides at these dosages. And unlike test - which, IMO, is popularily touted because it's dirt cheap and mass pharma are doing a good job promoting the shit - will not give you negative effects like hormone shutdown (D/T don't come close to shutting you down - see medical lit - and you'll rebound within a week -my own hormone panels), baldness, ugly red skin, hair growth, infertility, etc.

People are geeks and will disagree, but the shit is true.

>"You can't build a body on orals!"

BLAH BLAH BLAH. Tell it to every fucker who did prior to the mid 70s. (Protip: aiming for that 70s Arnie look of curved muscle and clear skin? A few hundred MG DECA with D/T cycled in. Worked for me and, yes, 'deca dick' is another internet myth created by geeks on the net.)

meh, I got serious with lifting and went from 180 to 215lbs in 2 years natty.
Got up to 500lb deadlift for 3x. 400somehing squat, etc. I definitely looked like a big guy, my previously baggy jeans became tight, large t-shirts were snug, my traps were huge and I was still pretty vascular. Didn't have abs but my stomach was "flat".

Was happy with my gains, got lots of compliments and then I quit lifting. I dunno if my genetics are just really good or what, but I'm glad I didn't do roids because I know my body can naturally go where I want it to go. It just takes time.

I could probably make the same gains in 1 year or less on roids, but in the grand scheme of things its not a bigdeal. I recommend people lift natty, HARD and SERIOUS for 2-3 years to see if doing roids is even worth it. Unless you're a pro athlete, model or personal trainer and you make income based on your body then its most likely pointless to do roids.

Only Vit D has medical merit. 1 D3 per day will likely benefit many.

Zinc, for instance, is a goddamn joke that has taken the internet by storm. Don't fall prey to oversupplementing heavy metals. Very bad for long term health.

>"But what if I have a zinc deficiency? I have all the markers of one!"

Get a test done. It'll cost less than $100 dollars.

But you're going to supplement the 50mg/day, i.e. ten times the commonly recommended intake, of a HEAVY METAL? HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

I been considering taking fighting to the next level by joining a boxing gym then later wanting to chase MMA

What are some insightful advice do you fellow fighters have to offer like on diet, work outs, drills, cardio, scheduling, mentality, discipline.

I have experience on fighting but the main things I struggle on is self discipline, diet and I'm concerned about scheduling also due to having a job. What are good ways to combat lack of self discipline and unorganized diet.

What role does weight lifting play also and what kind of weight lifting should I be doing. I have so many questions so please just lay down any advice thanks

>Basic beginner boxing:

Focus on actual training over everything else. If you take it up try to get in 3 sessions per week. Boxing is as much skill as playing pool. Everything else for a beginner is the finishing touch. You're sessions will likely involve a calisthenics/cardio warm up, so 3xweek in the boxing gym for 1-2 hours is all you need early on.

>diet

Don't be fat or 'overfat' (i.e. keep your waist under 36 inches).

>work outs

Focus on your three sessions per week and then add these (to be a better boxer) in order: 1) shadow boxing, 3x2min, throughout the week. 2) Footwork skills. 3) Roadwork, 20min jogs or 1 mile times runs would be very good for a beginner.

Any of you like to use phone apps like Strava to measure your times? I try to work out every other day and on my day off I like to go for a 20-30 mile bike ride. It's fun to compare your times with other people. My personal best record is 1st place on one segment, but only for my weight class (200+ pounds). It's actually 24th overall on that segment, but I smoke and drink too much and am too high to really push myself when going up hills.

I use it. It's a neat tracking app and it's real motivating to see you beat your old times, but then you look at your standings compared to everyone else and all that motivation flies out the window. Then again, nothing beat the feeling when you see yourself clawing up the global leaderboards!

I have fitness goals but im fucking lazy. I got a personal trainer and he isnt at the gym so i find it hard to get to the gym. Part of it is personal laziness and another part of it is not wanting to be the "new guy at the gym". Another part of it is being afraid of failure. I also have no clue on nutrition or anything about counting calories.

I got a personal trainer last week and hes having me do all these correctional strength exercises before I start. I cant even get myself to go to the gym. I feel like a failure.

I got a fitbit the other day and I just set it up. I'm 5 10 25 year old male 165 lb. 16.4% bodyfat.

What do? I'm about to go grocery shopping, give me some ideas on good shit to make

Okay OP. All this shit is simple. But you need to break it down instead of turning it into a big insurmountable mountain. This isn't really a fitness thread this is a /qq/ thread about a guy who is procrastinating and needs advice on making the mountain into a series of gentle steps. There is one step per paragraph except diet which is probably about half this post. But there's still not much to it.

First of all, either get a personal trainer at the gym or get a new gym.

Secondly, correctional exercises are still exercises. HI wonder that if you don't have a specific injury or massive deficiency that it might be best to go with the new trainer idea. Or do normal exercise as well. Focus on your form and if you have a specific weakness that will limit exercises and thus will be what is trained hardest anyway.

As for being the new guy at the gym. I've been going to mine for 4 years and every time I go I see someone I've never seen before. You know what I assume? That our schedules haven't previously overlapped.

Nutrition and counting calories isn't super hard. Plan your meals out in advance. You can google the calories per 100g or whatever of anything ever at this point so you can work out what you're eating. Same goes with drinks, don't forget to work out anything you drink that isn't water. Alcohol is weird and if you drink vodka or neat strong spirits there's a weird effect where the calories are maybe 10% discounted but honestly that's fuck all. Look at protein, try to get a good amount. People will say aim got 1g per day per pound of lean weight and stuff and that can be really hard to reach sometimes, but the RDA is 50-60g and getting 100g in is easy. Keto may help or maybe it won't but you don't want to easy colossal amounts of carbs anyway (which is what your liquid calories will be by the way).

You may have to actually plan your shopping out. I recommend filling up on green veg. This has the added bonus that you'll shit like a champ, use a wide variety of vegetables and you will benefit in a lot of ways though. If you're getting enough protein and getting the calories right then the next concern is your micr…
