So Ive been cutting hard all summer, but there are a few scattered days where I eat a ton. I noticed... that immediately following these days my strength and apparent muscle definition go up and I dont gain any fat from it as the rest of the days im cutting... Can this be called micro bulking? is this plausible?

that is a "refeed" and before anyone defines that, yes when you go on a cut you can refeed every 2-4 weeks and eat at a surplus or maintenance and sustain muscle mass, performance all while losing the same amount of weight .

The physiological aspect is, your body is used to running on less nutrirents so your insulin sensitivity is high and you just gave it a bunch of food and insulinogenic items so, yeah, of course your energy stores and muscles will go "GIBBE PLS"

Yes, for the same reasons I mentioned. You can gain mass while losing weight if your protein is high enough and you get your calories right

also maintenance refers to your caloric intake.
So if you burn 2000 a day, and eat 2000 a day, you are eating at maintenance

Yeah, 52 kilos is not skinnyfat. It's the sort of weight where gaining weight makes your lfie expectancy shoot up and losing it makes it plummet. Run a small surplus ensure your weight increases over time. Make sure you get a wide variety of foods in as there's a good chance your body has depleted supplies of things. If you genuinely think you're not just thin, you have an unhealthy body image. Skin always has a little give, it's never so taut you can't pinch a tiny bit or fold it, seeing ribs doesn't make you underweight but if you can do it without raising your arms and think you're fat then also see a psych. Or at least acknowledge your own self image is skewed and remember to offset it a bit.

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

I've just been out of work and working out each body part a day (5x a week)with a fair br of volume on top of that swimming 2x a week and boxing circuit 1x.

Now I'm about to be working in construction again,long days lots of moving about so I'm going back to 3 days lifting 1 circuit 1x swimming.

For the lifting I'm thinking just doing this

A/b/a
B/a/b

Workout A
Press from Stands (out of the rack, if you prefer)
Bench Press
Two-hands Curl

B

You dont need to test your 5rms yet, because you usually start with 90% of your 5RM anyway.
That being said, use the maxes you think you can easily hit for 6-7 reps.

An easy way is to divide your max by 1.2 for squat 1.15 for bench and 1.125 for deadlift

Hmmm I did it any way today

I got
Squat -117kg x5 it sort of felt easy so I went to 120 and I knew my lower back wouldn't be able to handle it probably due to not squatting much this year.

Bench press 1x4 85kg 1x190kg (so hard at the top of the lift)

Deadlift (my nigga) 162.5x1 155x5 over under hand

Never done ohp but I'm guessing 62.5 1x3 maybe 2-3 push press with 65

What weight should I start with on the program ?

>Are you better off doing seated barbell ohp ?

I've always done bb standing and db seated but someone who's been huge before told me I should just do barbell seated as you can lift more weight which means more strength and growth to the shoulders.

You read online that ohp standing is better for the whole body but be honest who cares if it's good for your lower back and legs of you are squatting deadlifting and doing an exercises

train each like seperate lifts.

This is the progression tree I make for people
*If at any time they can simply do 5, they do not need to do 3. Minimal goals listed.

ohp x 5
ohp x3 ohp x 5
ohp off pins x5> ohp x3 >ohp x5
ohp off pins x3 >ohp off pins x5 >ohp x3 >ohp x5
seated ohp > ohp off pins x3 >ohp off pins x5 >ohp x3 >ohp x5
seated ohpx3 > seated ohp x5>ohp off pins x3 >ohp off pins x5 >ohp x3 >ohp x5

usually by this time its time to move onto a routine with more periodization and volume, but people stall on OHP really fast on LP, but while we wait for deadlift and squat to start stalling, I do this for OHP and bench.

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'm in my mid-20s. Work in a kitchen. Play video games. Play music. Drink a lot. Do drugs. I've always been tall and skinny. In the past 5 years my gut has slowly grown into a full blown gut. How do I get rid of this bitch. I've always thought about it but hell man. I've never had to work out to maintain a skinny tall dude stature. Louis CK even has a bit about tall skinny dudes walking into parties and getting free pussy. Tall skinny dudes don't give a shit until BOOM. Your gut is huge from all the not caring.

How do I get rid of this bitch? I don't need a sixpack or muscles or anything like that. Not looking to be addicted to working out or going to the gym. I just want to get rid of the gut. What do you suggest?

I don't consume /hooch/ so I dunno how that works.

Soda is the biggest contributor to me being skinnyfat. If I completely cut that, I'll shred off the weight in a month or two. Drinking a 2 liter a day will turn everything from my knees to shoulders into a nice supple layer of dough.

I if drop all junk food and soda, I'll look pretty damn good with very limited muscle mass. The problem is I don't buy the groceries and don't have much say in that regard so I just get what is bought. Which is usually hungryman microwave shit, coca cola, and devil squares. All of which have become nasty as fuck for me to eat.

Bear with me here this might be a shit post.

So years ago i was a skinny drug addict, then suddenly something just clicked and i can't explain it. I sorted my shit out and started exercising I still carried over some bad habits and got on the steroids but after my course finished I was able to maintain my new body naturally and life was great.

Skip forwards a couple of years and I've just left a long term relationship which caused me to neglect my body a little bit, also I got sick for a month and ended up loosing a whole load of muscle mass. Now i'm pretty much back to square one and I think i'm starting to get a little chubby on the belly too.

Problem is this time the motivation I had the first time to sort out my body is gone. I just can't seem to force myself to get back into it.

So I ask you for your advice on how to force myself to improve my body and also wanted to ask what keeps you guys going?

Sorry for the /qq/ style post

That's good man. Don't look too much for what other people say is inspiration. Have this nice story though, it's a classic.

Anyway, for me personally, lifting makes me feel good. Feel good in my body and feel good in my mind. It's satisfying in that way that only hard work is. I have other motivations but that's the core of it.

I am a beginner when it comes to weight lifting, I mean properly weight lifting in a serious manner to get bigger. I have been going through my routine for 8 months or so and have seen good gains. However I have been using a split such as;

triceps & chest
biceps & back
rest
legs & abs
rest

equally 5 days and repeat. However I have stared to take notice of compound workouts. Yesterday I did a workout that was soul compound and boy oh boy it has left me aching today lol! I did;

5 sets of 10-12 bench press
5 sets of 10-12 military press
5 sets of 10-12 dead lift
5 sets of 10-12 squats

reading over your post, you need to focus on a strength base if you plan on making any exercise plan longer than 6 months worth your time. You should bench 1.25-1.5x/BW Squat 2x and deadlift 2x before thinking about doing higher volume. You are doing a lot of volume with high rep work that will not sustain long term progress and will plateau very quickly.

Seriously hop on the starting strength train already
X / Y = Alternate (IE Alternate bench and press, row and lat pull, arms and abs)
Day A
Squat/Front Squat 3x5
Bench 3x5/Press 3x5
Row 3x5/LatPull or Pull Up 3x6-8
Arms/Abs 3x10
Day B
Deadlift 1x5 (Top set)
Squat/Front Squat 3x5
Bench/Press 3x5
Row/Lat Pull or Pull up 3x68
Arms/Abs 3x10

yeah I know I won't become a monster by mistake lol, I have seen how much it has taken to make the gains I have already in the past 8 months or so.

Protein, I take in around 80-100 grams at the moment. I have read research on high amounts of protein, especially animal protein, that increase the gh1 hormone which can lead to cancer and shit. I don't want to compromise my health, and at around 100 grams I think I am consuming enough right now to get an ok amount of gains.

My diet is pretty good though, I hardly ever drink alcohol anymore, I used to a lot! I use a lot of leafy greens but then again I always have. Chicken, whey isolate, oats, peanut butter, all that good stuff.

I try to focus on the negative of a rep, so for example a bar curl going back down I will count to 4 as I slowly lower the bar. I have read that you should keep the muscle under tension for a good 40-60 seconds each set

Sounds like you got a good healthy diet going but you don't really have that much muscle built up. Time for the dream bro, it's time to B U L K.

That all sounds good otherwise, don't forget a nice big squeeze at the top of the rep too.

Is it a good idea/safe to try and work out when I can't actually eat anything solid? I literally made the decision two days ago to get back on healthy eating and exercising with the intention of bulking/strengthening enough to give me the confidence/incentive to finally start going to the gym, but then after one day of that some creep outside a bar smacked me in the jaw leaving me unable to chew solid food.

I've been drinking soup and protein shakes with added fruit, would it be wise to try and keep up with exercise or would I just be doing unnecessary damage?

I hate my life

Someone posted a thread on /b/ a little while back, and in the thread the OP posted a link to a really complex, free workout system planner. It had exercises for every muscle group. I lost the link. Does anyone know what website I was talking about?

fitloop.com

bump this thread if you plan on doing barbell stuff, or just bump it months from now when you grow out of BW training because this board is slow

broke bitch trying escape the skinnyfat by Jack Banningfuck - Sat, 29 Jul 2017 02:00:26 EST ID:ulkV8gHl No.94328 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I must preface all that I say by emphasizing how broke I am. I'm working on getting a job and car and shit, but in the meantime I have a lot of free time and I don't want to wait until I have money to start getting in shape.

Also I can't do pushups because of some weird shit with my elbow. Feels like bone against bone, and changing arm position doesn't help.

Now that that's out of the way;

>Broke and skinnyfat, just ordered some creatine. Have like $150 to spend on workout equipment but would like to spend as little as possible.

So what are "the essentials"? Right now I have shitty 10lb weights from when I was 12, a bike (figure I could lift the bike like an odd and uneven weight), and a tree I can somewhat do pull-ups in (eucalyptus so the bark is smooth enough it doesn't hurt).

I have ~$150 to spend but, again, am broke as fuck and trying to get my life together in other ways too. So I'd like to spend the absolute minimum while still being able to see clear improvements. I don't mind working harder or longer.

Also wish me luck with the creatine, I've been vegetarian since birth and read the effects of creatine can be more pronounced in vegetarians

I mean I have a shit diet. I doubt replacing it could do me much harm. I mostly it bread and cheese and then vitamins so I don't immediately die. Not the healthy kind of vegetarian.

Now I've just been eating almost nothing for like a week ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ eggs and beans and other stuff sounds healthier anyway

As for the creatine, it was under $20 on Amazon with shipping for 500g I think. That's at least 100 days worth, and really not much money even if it is a waste, which I don't think it will be.

Make sure you fit some vegetables in if you can. You won't need tonnes to not get sick immediately but the more the better. Buy stuff that keeps well or easily and comes in bulk. Frozen vegetables might seem like a cop out but a bag will provide a good few meals. Beans come cheap in bulk. Potatoes are mostly carbs but if you eat the skin they actually contain fibre and a good selection of minerals and vitamins. They also keep well, onion is cheap and keeps well and should be included in lots of recipes. Sounds like you're going to be eating a lot of eggs and beans and baked potato, but through in some frozen veg, onion maybe a couple of other cheap greens, maybe a carrot (hell eat one a day as a snack) and you'll probably be a LOT healthier in general. Do calorie count though so you don't go from "skinnyfat" to "actual fat".

The internet says red potatoes are relatively healthy. I wouldn't want to eat the skin on a regular potato really but I'd eat red potato skins on their own I don't give a shit, shit's delicious. Is this true /ana/ guru

and yeah I'll try to get some actual non-potato/egg/bean food in. Mostly I've just eaten eggs so far

Just under the skin is where most of the nutrients in potatoes sit. It's also where the fibre is. Potatoes aren't super nutritious but they have a bit of everything.

If you're thinking of sweet potatoes those are different. Red potatoes are pretty standard nutritionally as far as I know. Sweet potatoes aren't as cheap but they are reasonably nutritious. They don't have the same spread of minerals as potatoes but they're really good sources of vitamin A and a small portion of sweet potato every couple of days will help a lot with that particular micronutrient. .

The key is not to just eat one thing. There's a bunch of cheap staples. Mix it up. Explore the list, look beyond it. If you want the best results OP you need to put a little thought into things, look at some comparisons, work out what will cost you what. If you think you can just eat sweet potato every day you're going to get ill.
