Losing weight quickly even after lifting hard by Edward Bledgewill - Fri, 08 Apr 2016 01:16:19 EST ID:O131irfv No.93248 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I have a question maybe you guys can answer

I've been lifting hard for about 5 months. I gained about 20 pounds in that period.

Been eating a shitload and been consuming high calorie/vitamin/protein shakes.

In the last four weeks though I've been slowly losing about 2 pounds every week. It doesn't make sense, I'm lifting higher weights and going harder on my workouts. Haven't changed my diet. What do you guys think is going on?

OP here to clarify

So I'm lifting hard as fuck now. My weights are growing up dramatically. I use this Mass Gaining powder with 1250 calories and 50g of protein and 25 vitamins/minerals. On top of that I eat a least 2-3 more 1000+ calorie meals.

That brings me up to about 3500-4000 calories with a shitload of vitamins and supplements. Everytime I work out I get 1g of creatine.

I actually have leveled off at 167 pounds flat. I was 146lbs about 6 months ago.

I've stopped GAINING! I went through a dramatic gaining period and now I've just stopped suddently. I want to keep gaining and dont wanna use steroids. You guys have probably been at this stage at some point. How did you beat it?

Its pretty normal for people at pretty much all experience levels to plateau every once in a while, you just gotta keep putting in work and avoid deloading weight. One thing that helps me is laying off a exercise for a week if I was doing it a lot and replace it with accessories, like switch bench press out for chest flyes and dips. Then when I come back to the bench I'll usually be able to hammer out a PR.

It may also be useful to physically keep track of your calories on paper or with an app just to be sure. It can be surprising how much more or less people think they're eating compared to what they really eat.

Thanks for the advice. I've been thinking that taking a week off is probably good, maybe just doing pushups and pullups every other day. Something light.

Maybe its just improbable, but I really miss the gains on top of the strength I was getting. I crave mass, I've been skinny AF my whole life!

.Old fashioned man meals. Post yours

Just ate an entire can of corned beef hash mixed with a can of corn hot sauce and american cheese. Over 1200 calories in one go.

I know there is alot of anti-dirty bulk, but if you use your head and cut properly its pretty damn efficient. My progress is explosive

grean peas or other canned beans or lentils with maybe some basmati rice or just like that with some veggies or curry or sauce or smth of the kind, but honestly just lentils alone or green peas completely satisfy my taste. I love some cooked spinach with that though.

First thing I thought of was Irish coddle which I haven't made in forever: http://www.food.com/recipe/dublin-coddle-irish-sausage-bacon-onion-and-potato-hotpot-288885

It's good for your soul. I need to stop being a puss and cook me up some.

Oral only cycle thinking anavar by Angus Semmledale - Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:17:31 EST ID:t8dktI8f No.93265 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Main reason why I want to use this is for recovery reasons because im working construction and also riding my bike to work.Its like 3.5miles there so im doing about 7 miles cycling as well as working with my hands all day.

My goal at the moment is mainly recomp but to be honest Im not too bothered about results any more just lift mainly for fun but I do lift heavy as much as I can and do aim to get stronger each time I go the gym and I do eat healthy and try to meal prep as much as I can mainly for health reasons.

And thats why im thinking of using something weak like anavar and not pinning because all I want is a little extra boost with recovery.

Ive read little bits about var cyces and most people say don't bother with it but I know a few people in different gyms I've been to who have used it while cutting and a few boxers who have done var only cycles and said they where good and got all right results.

So if im to do this do I need a pct ?
I know the 4-5 people who I have seen use it haven't used a pct and they have probably just bought the pills with out knowing too much.

Could I be better of with using a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators ?

Thinking of just doing ostraine now then later on in the year I'm just going do test with maybe eq for a few months(maybe after the Sumer time partying).

Any one have any experience with ostraine ??

All in wanting to get out of it is increased energy so o can keep my strength up in the gym and work while being so active and hopefully help heal my rotor cuff which I've read it can help with..

Wierd question about musularity/muscle mass gain-loss? by Charles Sottingdodge - Mon, 18 Apr 2016 02:31:03 EST ID:lbIWyBpF No.93268 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So.. I'm a 6ft tall, 150ish lbs male. I'm skinny but toned. I work out on a daily basis and don't use weights unless I'm doing squats. Other then that, its all body weight exercises. I notice that a while after I'm done working out my upper body, my left arm.. specifically my left, seems to have deflated a little? My right arm keeps the mass but not left. It WILL keep some but not compared to my right. Is this because I'm a "righty" so i naturally use my right hand/arm for everything so that means its noticeably stronger? I separated my left clavicle a little less then 10 years ago. Could it possibly be muscular dystrophy?

TLDR - After working out, left arm seems to shrink? or get smaller then right. (im a righty).

>seems deflated
Measure it to be sure...

when you work out, you'll get a "pump". it's normal for your muscles to look bigger & fuller immediately after a workout compared to some time after the pump wears off.

but, yeah, if you are a righty and aren't isolating your left arm, it's possible your right arm is doing more than half the work, leading to more development & bigger/longer pumps there.

it's not dystrophy, it's probably just bad form.

Sorry my post wasn't really that clear, i do more on the barbell bench than barbell press, but i did the same weight for dumbell shoulder press and dumbell chest press.

I guess i was just tired last time, since i was able to progress on the dumbell chest press last workout more than on the shoulder one.

Does anyone feels really revigorated after stretching? Feels like i just got full of energy, i am now elastic enough to stay in the full lotus position, gonna do some meditation tonight on it, get some mental gains.
