Biceps Not Growing Much At All by Phineas Gockleshaw - Thu, 11 Aug 2016 01:09:00 EST ID:cx85dbH7 No.93576 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have been working out 6 days a week for a few months now. I have never been fat but I used to be kind of slim with a slight beer belly.

My abs are starting to pop now, my shoulders are naturally broad but getting bigger, my legs are ok but my biceps suck s bad. I work my arms 2 days a week with dumbbell workouts. I have no gym anywhere near and only dumbbells. I have searched for various workouts on Youtube and yes they have grown a little, but they seem to have hit a wall and any growth is super slow.

>Any tips on home dumbbell workouts for biceps?

you could do hammer curls and, though its harder with dumbells than a barbell, reverse grip curls (overhand grip). But what I think was best for me was pull-ups, especially with an underhand (supine) grip. no big deal if you hit a wall OP, people have different body types n shit. congrats on your work so far

Not an answer but I think you should definitely keep in mind that your rear delts need attention as well. Be sure to do rear delt flies with that 8 pound weight, even if it doesn't make much of a difference in your shoulders, it's incredibly important that the front of your delts do not become unproportionally stronger than the rear. Your arms are gonna have a bad time in the future if that goes down

I've read that stretching before strenuous exercise increases the rick of hyperextension on the joints. I think afterwards you're fine.

Do warmups that involve an aspect of stretching but is mostly still an activity, like lunges or high kicks. Use different bodyweight movements to warm up your hips, abs, quads, hams and calves.

When you are done your run do some static stretching.

Thats what I do except I cycle and dont run.

My dad was a personal trainer for years, he is your stereotypical gym rat muscle man. As a child growing up, I never wanted to get jacked, because everyone told me I was going to follow in his foot steps. My dad is a great man, but I wanted to be my own person.

Now I'm 24 and I'm pathetically skinny. I live in an area with not that many hot chicks, and I realized that all of the guys that get hot chicks that they actually stick around for are jacked.

I have very few friends and they are all extremely beta. Like, to the point where I don't want to even be friends with some of them anymore because they are so beta. The point where I know someone who would think i'm offensive for trying to get jacked for being "too masculine". Needless to say, none of the few friends I have work out or go to the gym. Theyre either skinny like me or fat.

I don't have a workout partner. I have a friend who says he'll be my workout partner but hes a fat alcoholic and hes very unreliable and I dont want to see him every day anyways. I can't go work out with my dad who knows his shit, I dont live in the same area as him anymore.

Would it be a bad idea to start going to a personal trainer?

Lots of people will tell you it's a complete waste of money or a scam. In most cases, this is true. But if you shop around, a GOOD PT is worth their weight in gold. If you're just starting out with very few (if any) suitable workout partners and with little or no direction, yeah, a PT is a good idea. You will need some form of external accountability that isn't a bunch of text on a screen-- someone to provide positive reinforcement to develop good habits and to teach you how to do things the right way so you don't hurt yourself.

You don't really need to have a clear goal when you're starting out, but after a month or two, you really need to start to develop a clear idea of what you want out of the PT and articulate that to them. otherwise, you'll either get led around by them as they try to figure out how to spend your session, spinning their wheels and wasting time; or they'll turn you into one of their "projects" and push you into something you're not interested in. And shit, people's goals change, so they should also be willing to be flexible but strong enough to keep you focused on a path.

Find a PT you respect but you're not afraid to question. They're going to be your teacher, and a good teacher / student relationship thrives on curiosity. It's also a personal relationship as well-- you're going to be sweating, grunting, swearing and stinking in close proximity to this person, so you should feel comfortable enough with them to do it.

My first PT was one the gym randomly assigned me. He flaked out on appointments, didn't touch on weights or nutrition and didn't push me. I got my next PT when he just decided one morning to hand in his two weeks notice. The current PT is obsessively dedicated, has a list of certifications as long as your arm, plans out my workouts weeks in advance and pushes me harder than I've ever been pushed-- because she knows I'm capable of so much more.



You only get out of a PT what you put in. There is a massive field of science behind sports medicine and there's no way you're going to even scratch the surface in a month, even if you went eve…

Been taking Winstrol for the past 25 days. 20mg in the morning and 5mg of anavar at night. I am now out of both of these and the last piece of Winstrol I took was yesterday.

Since 7 days ago, I started taking 1.25mg pills of this weird drug that prevents testosterone from being converted to estrogen. I hear it's strong as fuck but I forget the name. Does anyone know what it was and if that shit is as strong as winstrol?
What to expect now that i'm coming off such a high dosage?

You're a moron.

Not only is that cycle going to do nothing for you other than very temporary strength gains, it is going to kill natural testosterone levels.

The weird drug is likely anastrazol, an aromatase inhibitor. You take this during cycle, not after. It prevents the winstrol from aromatizing. You want to take a SERM such as clomid for about a month now, e3d ideally for clomid.

If you don't, your body won't produce testosterone in sufficient amounts, your strength will return to baseline, sexual function and mood will be down. Though, stopping any oral only cycle will likely make you feel better for a week, which is easy to confuse with "not being shut down" due to the systemic effects of powerful androgen (test flu)

jesus christ idk which of you is a bigger retard

those are such low doses idk what you've done other than lowered your body's natural production of testosterone. Anavar isn't active below 50mg in women and usually not below 100mg a day in men. "1.25mg of a weird drug" sounds like Clomid already like >>93599 said but that was the extent of the proper info they had

Clomid is an aromatase inhibitor (also known as an estrogen blocker, this was found in Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar), it's not a SARM. Also Clomid is literally the gold standard for what is referred to as "post cycle therapy", or the set of drugs you take after you run a cycle. If you're already taking steroids and you don't know what "this weird drug" is, you probably don't know what you're doing.

But with those dosages alone, you probably don't know what you're doing.

People like you are why I stopped coming to /ana/ over here. Nothing I said in the original post was wrong.

You're a moron. And here's why:

Clomid isn't a SARM, such as ostarine, but a SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator). This is a fact. Clomid is dosed at 50mg/day, every other to every 3 days for optimal effectiveness. It stimulates LH, with a 3.5 day half life in most subjects. It blocks estrogen in the HTPA, starting the GnRH:LHRH>LH:FSH cascade, which stimulates testosterone production in men, estrogen production in women, and a larger number of fertile follicles in the ovary in women.

The drug, at 1.25mg/day is Letrozole. It IS an aromatase inhibitor which blocks the conversion of testosterone or other testosterone derived steroids into their estrogen or estradiol counterparts. This should be used ON cycle to prevent gyno, sexual dysfunction, etc. It should NOT be used with either anavar, as anavar is a DHT derived hormone that can't aromatize. I was incorrect about it's use with winstrol, as I was posting quickly and meant to elaborate that winstrol should be used with testosterone, and an AI such as anastrazol or letrozole... But then I thought the OP was most likely trolling, and gave up any residual effort. You, however, are spreading misinformation to the OP, if he is sincere, and can hurt his HTPA recover, for quite some time.

Also, it's worth noting that 50mg of actual, good, anavar is VERY active in men. Women are advised to take 5mg/day as their maximum dose. Pharmaceutical grade anavar is very, very powerful (and very expensive) but some UGL gear can be just as good around the 60mg dose. I know, because I used it, along with test, to get below 8% BF while staying over 190lbs.

You are right about the doses being wrong, but you don't know as much as you think you do.

As the other guy said, obscure sports tend to have a wider range of skills and there's often several tiers of competition. They also tend to have nerdier players. Stuff like archery and fencing will be full of weird ones but hey maybe that's your crowd. If you want only moderately weird, newbie friend and aerobic you probably want to play ultimate though all the ultimate players I've met are either scarily squeaky clean or massive stoners.

But yeah, it's uni. Turn up to meetings for various sports and ask what level they're at, talk to people get a feel for the sport and if the game and people suit you. No one will judge you, they're at the most open and accepting of their life.

I dunno I only like to compete with myself. Best opponent there is. He keeps losing but he puts up a good fight.

Are you talking about division one teams and sports like football and basketball at a high level university? Cause if so, you are not just gonna show up and try out and make the team...

But if you wanna walk on to certain sports you definitely can try out and they will most likely work with you. Ones like rugby and boxing. People who play rugby are usually very down to earth and they recruit a lot of people because it is hard to fill rosters (at least in the states). They were recruiting people from my organization and said they would take people from all skill levels and you didn't have to have any experience.

Boxing is another sport you can join and not have any background either. It is considered club sport, so universities aren't fully behind it. You can join the boxing gym if your university has one, see how you like it, and then tell the head coach you're thinking about wanting to compete. People are pretty friendly and helpful in the fighting world. Try not to join if there's a lot of egos though cause you don't want to get hurt because some fuck boy thinks he is some hotshot.

You can also just join intramural teams. They will have open league teams that play all sorts of sports from basketball and volleyball to water polo and dodge ball. Make friends and go to the rec center/gym at your school and see what they have and what you can join. Even if there isn't an intramural league at your school, check around your town/city and see what there is for you to do. I'm sure there are plenty of club and rec sports at your school though. Even if it is just throw together games. Most people are nice and willing to let you play.

And I don't know what you mean by "lower skill level". If you're implying that you want to join a sport and get the professional level it isn't impossible, but very unlikely since just learning and mastering the fundamentals can take years and years to do. You might be naturally good at something, but just about everyone in professional sports has been playing since they were young. You're in your second year of college, so you're relatively young, but find something and stick with it, learn heavily about it, and work h…

skinny loser coming out of a weird druggy phase that lasted about 6 years too long. I'm 24 right now.

My dad was a natural body builder and owned an athletic club. My entire childhood people told me it was my destiny to get fucking jacked like my dad but i always said no fuck that I dont want to be like my parents. I was just a nerdy emo kid growing up that got really into drugs after hs

Now I want to get in better shape, I see some of my friends from high school who i no longer talk to got in really good shape. it reminds me of my dad when I was a little kid. I see another guy bitching on Facebook about how everyone else is getting in good shape and he can't make it, when he works out for 3 hours a week and eats dennies.

Now I want to get ripped, i'm about 5 10 160 pounds. My pops is an old man now, and he broke his arm earlier this year and hasn't been lifting since. Plus, I dont want to go to him for help, I want to do this on my own, but I don't know where to start.

Schools starting soon so I'm off all drugs, including weed and alcohol and cigs. I've been clean for all that shit and coke for 2 weeks, i'm trying to focus and keep a clear mind. I haven't rolled or tripped since spring which is amazing for me.

Where do I start? is a personal trainer worth it?

Theres this boxing studio by my house that costs $120 a month, theres 2 programs, one to learn how to box and one to get into shape, and I heard the guy whoops your ass into shape. I was considering joining. Its 3 days a week, and I was considering getting a personal trainer too, I want to be working out at least 5 days a week and taking a yoga class on the weekends.

I have no idea where to start. I have no idea how to cook lean meats, I have no idea how to do a regular exercise routine, and I dont even have my shit together enough yet to do a regular workout schedule with my work schedule. I will once school starts and I get a new job. I've been doing really basic shit, I can do like 50 pull-ups if I take a break in between

Classes and shit you have to pay for is generally a scam. I know it's cynical but it's true. Don't pay for anything, not even a PT.

After a year,, of progressively adding weight, and lifts, and weight to those lifts, your test is going to shoot up like a Fucking oak tree. There's a fine curve to follow between undertraining and not pushing yourself as a natty. Find that curve and your golden.

Be patient. your test level is different than your gym bros, so don't expect similar results for the same work.

Towards the end of your year, up the rep ranges to 7-12. You need to make an objective decision about how hard to bulk depending on how your gains have come and whether you are actually strong for your weight. Don't jump the gun.You have time.

Don't buy supps. But good food. MAYBE some vitamin d3, zinc, magnesium, and fish oil.

Be honest with yourself and never cosign your own bullshit like ahh I'll work out another day I just don't have time

>Plus, I dont want to go to him for help, I want to do this on my own, but I don't know where to start.
Why...? You're already not doing it on your own by coming here and asking for help. It's okay to admit you don't know something and talk to your parents for advice and help. You said your dad is really in to it and has been forever, he sounds like the perfect person to ask besides some anons on an imageboard. Honestly you should check your ego and go to him if you really want it as much as you say you do.

Besides that.....

$120 a month sounds expensive as fuck for only 3 days a week. If you really want to learn boxing, look around for different gyms and look to see if your school has a boxing club because it will be FAR cheaper. Our rate was $65 for the remainder of the year, no matter when you joined.

Just buy a gym membership and start going there. You can do a 4-5 day split if you're that motivated. Do back and biceps, chest and tris, legs, shoulders, cardio, body weight days. Do cardio every day that at least 10 minutes. 30 minutes is ideal, but do what you can.
I would just start out doing 8-12 reps with three sets in every weight training regiment and exercise. Warm up with 10 minutes of cardio before your work out and if you're up to it cool down with 10 minutes. After you do that for a few months you can start strength training if you want to because you'll understand form is everything and the amount of weight you can move doesn't mean shit if your form isn't good.

As for diet. Fruits and vegetables (what a surprise...), complex carbs like pasta, bread, and rice (just examples there are a ton more that are healthy). Carbs give your muscles energy and have the least amount of kcals per gram, besides water which is of course zero. Eat clean proteins like chicken, turkey, and some occasional beef (steak) if you want. The way it is prepared has an effect on how healthy the meat is too. Grilling and baking are two of the most healthy. Avoid fast food, processed food (canned shit or anything that has a long shelf life), anything deep fried, sugar, and high sodium diets. Drink lots of water. Make that your only liquid you consume and make it a habit to constantly be drinking water throughout the day. Carry a water bottle with you and refill it when you can or just buy a jug at a gas station and see if you finish it before you go to sleep. You should be peeing a lot and it should be close to clear. Don't over hydrate and chug water excessively, but just make it a habit to drink water.

Yoga is awesome and I enjoyed it when I had the ability to go. I was doing yoga twice a week, boxing twice a week, and throwing in some weights on another day or two if my schedule allowed me to. Look around for different yoga studios and see what they offer, who they cater to, and how much it is. I wouldn't pay for more than 50-60 a month though because I know I would not be going consistently and a lot of those places are stupid expensive because they know fools will pay for that shit. BUT if you join a gym, a lot of the bigger name ones will offer classes for free as long as you have a membership.

To add to this I would also say try and work out sometime with one of your old highschool friends (if you can stand them) , since your dad can't actually work out with you. after breaking his arm and all that.

When I started exercising having a friend who already knew the ropes and how to properly lift with form (except he didn't squat for whatever reason), and going with him to the gym helped me out immensely.

Hey guys not sure if this is the right place.

But i have a sugar addiction, whenever i dont have sugar i experience depression until i eat something sugary (which i would end up binging on).
I know this is the typical "eating your feelings" rhetoric, but how do i beat this? how can i tell my sugar withdrawals to go fuck themselves and not binge on sugar?

Any advice or tips would be welcome.

The physical addiction of sugar is pretty weak. I believe I have an addiction to sugar but it's psychological. I mostly have it in check and I am healthy as fuck but I display 4 to 5 symptoms of addiction as per the DSM. Which means I might have an addiction because fuck the DSM. That said of all the drugs I've taken and hobbies I've been accused of being addicted to I managed maybe 1 and maybe 2 symptoms respectively. I think I had a physical addiction to caffiene once, but that's babytown frolics to get over. Sometimes I feel the physical element of sugar cravings but they pass.

But anyway the physical part only last a few days. I'd guess if you want to accelerate the normalisation of your body you want to avoid insulin spikes. Eat to reduce insulin resistance. This means go at least 12 (up to about 14 hours really) hours without eating between dinner and breakfast. Eat lots of fiber, avoid processed carbs. Accept you'll feel like shit for a few days. Hydrate well (water not fruit juice) work out a load. Lots of veg, some fruit whole. Fiber fiber fiber. Also fiber.

If it's purely physical you will only need days, maybe 2 weeks to get back to normal or be approaching that.

If you still crave it then "sugar" addiction is more of a symptom of your real problem. That's more /qq/ or /med/ or /see a fucking doctor/.

I could post about my own struggles but they are the result of something other than a physical mechanism and I keep them in check.

Sugar addiction can be powerful. Sometimes I want to go to the dollar store just to buy a whole thing of cookies.
Then it becomes a struggle not to eat too many or else you feel too stimulated then crash and nausea.

Yeah this is a fairly real thing, and the only real way to beat it is to replace the dopamine high with another dopamine high. If drugs aren't your thing, natural opiates from a decent workout are a good option.

Sup /ana/

Im going to join a boxing gym next month and I wanted to know what type of workouts I can start doing now to prepare myself.

I've already started doing light heavybag work and running 1/2 times a week

Is there anything else I can start doing and also, are there any good heavybag routines I can do from home??

skip rope,wall sit,lunges,squats for legs

different variations of push ups

honestly nothing can really prepare you , cause you dont know what you'll be doing in the gym,but if your legs are conditioned you should be fine

how do we un-fat-ify an entire board??? they are all self-admittedly taking anti-psychotics which increase your weight by like 50lbs a go. so like how can an online community aspire to a better standard of personal fitness?

I posted in that thread and lost over ten pounds so far just from eating tons of spinach and broccoli and watching carbs and sugar. Also running an hour a day when I'm not sore from the previous day.

Make sure you're actually eating protein. I mean spinach and broccoli are great in that using low carb veg to fill up and bulk out your meals is the healthiest way to approach this shit but if you don't ensure you're repairing the damage and encouraging muscle growth you'll just end up burning muscle off and not replacing it. Go out and walk loads every day. Intense shit 3 times a week is plenty if you're not otherwise chairbound. Try doing some strength of body weight shit on the non running days too

If it's been more than 2 weeks you've got the discipline though just make sure it's not being wasted on really bad routines diets which don't help etc.

Also in answer to OP, the answer is you can't, you have to wait for someone to want it then make sure they get the support once they do.

I see people online who haven't figured out how to consume food so often that it doesn't even shock me anymore. I just hope none of them are older than 25, because then we're really just fucked as a race. Here's a helpful step guide on how to eat:

1) Decide what you want to eat
2) Read the nutritional information (usually found on the back of the product) and, to the best of your abilities using the nutritional information provided, figure out how many calories you will be consuming in this instance
3) Repeat this process every time you eat something, and keep a running tally of how many calories you have eaten throughout or by the end of the day
4) Do not exceed your daily limit of calories. There are many tools and calculators available online to help you find your personal, optimal daily limit of calories. However, a good starting base for most people is no more than 2000 a day.

Congrats! You can now eat whatever your heart desires and not become a fat piece of shit! It didn't even cost anything or fill your bookshelf with useless fad dieting books! Nobody here profits but YOU!

Trying to get back into cycling, so I can mountain-bike again (used to be a big hobby of mine) and after 4 years of doing fuck all and taking up smoking weed, my fitness level is practically 0. I almost threw up after less than an hour of cycling and it was relatively flat/slight uphill but something I could have breezed past before.

How do you get the motivation to get gud again if you've taken a few years out? I used to be fairly fit. Never went to the gym but always did some kinda sport. If it weren't biking it was skating, trampolining or gymnastics. University destroyed me in more ways than one.

It's even harder because I look at a small hill, think "oh I'll get up that easily with a bit of a push" then I guess I put in the same amount of effort as I used to and after about a minute or less of cycling like that I'm completely wrecked and my muscles don't want to co-operate anymore. idk man it's equal parts soul destroying and motivation that I can barely make it 2 miles without feeling like my heart's gonna burst from my chest when I'd be out on my bike all day going over rocks, roots and mud before I'd get tired.

It's just gonna take time OP, I have 2 tricks for you to help you keep motivated tho.

This only helps in the first few phases of training, but realise that every time you complete a cardio exercise you do 3 times a week, you'll be 20% better next week!

Next is to set progressive goals, like when I go running, I see a tree like 50 metres away, and I say: that's my next goal, I can do that. Then when I pass the tree I choose a new goal (cracks in the pavement?) this keeps me motivated way longer than it usually does.

The first few training sessions are a bit of a grind but I hope this helps.

I rarely cycled until a few months ago. Now I gotta do 20km a day because of my job.
Things get easier after a month lol but things do get easier.
Just start easy, make some casual destinations for the first week and then slowly step up the game.
The key to getting back in shape is not torturing yourself because obviously your brain and body dont like it, AT ALL. So try avoiding the really tough and grueling until you are ready because your motivation will drop rapidly.

Day by day dude.
