If thats a routine Il just going to say, no

please do starting strength, and learn how to lift for the first month rather than rush into heavy weight.

Do starting strength and eat a fuck ton food and get strong along with gaining a decent amount of mass from all the heavy compound lifts (the big 3) and gaining weight in both muscle and fat. Bulk!! Also, make sure you are getting enough sleep so your body can recover asap.

I want to do somthing a bit different
Full body heavy weight workouts burn me out too much
I like pplxppl now
But I'm bored of just doing straight sets of like 3x5 3x12

But then when I've tried other programs what mess about with different rep ranges I sort of lose strength (but have looked more cut)

i was half thinkin ofgoing to some big bodybuilding gym close to me for a change and start using machines but i wouldn't know what to do in terms of making it all consistency and making sure I don't burn out due to doing too much

I was also looking st the PHUL workout doesn't seem bad but I feel like there are better programs out there

What should I do ?

Btw my stats are
Bw 80kg

I do a variation of pyramid training where I do a set of 7,5,3 reps in increasing weight, then do 6,4 reps of a related movement in decreasing weight, then go "across" for the main movement 12,10,8,6,6,6. On my last day I just do a fullbody to support the main lifts, but sometimes I squat 3x5 that day because I obviously hate walking normally.

Upper Back + Arms:
Cable Pulldowns (widegrip) 7,5,3
Cable Pulldowns (closegrip) 4,6
Cable Pulldowns (straight armed) 12,10,8,6,6,6
Overhead Press 3x5
Preacher Curls 7,5,3
French Curls 4,6
Curl (combo pronated and hammer per one count) 12,10,8,6,6,6
Shrugs 3x5
Chinup until failure

Body Cannot Handle Consecutive Days by Martin Meshmot - Sat, 23 Jun 2018 21:30:26 EST ID:D2SGLHZi No.94791 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I've been weight training around a year and a half now, coming from a somewhat skinny-fat physique, you know, a little beer belly and skinny extremities.

As of now I am looking pretty decent, 5'11 and weighing in at 88KGs. Probably around 18% body fat. I've had several people who I haven't seen in a few months comment 'have you been working out' and people at my gym who I have never spoken to, say hello, and comment that I'm getting bigger. So, my routine is working.

The issue I have is that, I have been using a push-pull FULL BODY workout, one day on and one day off. I have been using this for 4-5 months, and have seen the best gains in doing it. Prior to that, I was doing a split routine, of 2 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, and 2 days off, repeat.

I switched to the full body 1 day off and 1 day on, because it felt like I was overtraining, I would wake up shattered, my sleep was getting messed up, and I my gains were super slow. I also got a few colds here and there, which is rare for me.
I recently switched back to the split routine nearly 2 weeks ago, and already I am feeling knackered. I worked out yesterday and today I cannot even imagine giving it my all in the gym. I went back to the split because I feel I am no longer a beginner, and should move to an intermediate routine. So what gives, why can't my body handle 2 sessions in a row? I am eating enough calories, and on each day I train 18-22 sets total. I will list yesterdays workout below.

Incline Smith 5 sets

Overhead Press Machine 4 sets
Chest Decline 3 sets
Tricep Dbell Overhead Extensions 3 sets 

Tricep Pushdowns 3 sets

Side lateral Raises 3 sets

Try rotating through the big three - squat, bench, deadlift - and see how you feel. You can cut way back on the number of sets you're doing with these exercises because they're compound exersises, meaning that they work more than one major muscle group simultaneously. Squat and deadlift alone will work practically your entire body. Remember to follow the principle of progressive overload to figure out your reps/sets (tons of info exists on this just by googling). Figure out your 1 rep max and 5 rep max on each exercise and go from there. Hope this helps

I recommend you don't attempt to do one day on one day off because that's bad habit, you don't work out 50% of your days?

Try this:
Day 1: Running and Back and abs
Day 2: Running and Legs and abs
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Running and shoulders/deltoids (there are 7 different shoulder/deltoid exercises, it's a whole day) and abs
Day 5: Running and Chest and Bis/Tris and abs
Day 6: Rest

You can hit one section hard each time and have 5 days for it to recuperate before you hit it again.
Also this routine has you resting every third day, that's pretty manageable.
Eat plenty but avoid sugary foods and drinks including juice which is all sugar. But When you want a snack, eat fruit, what person with a six pack doesn't eat fruit?

I started with the stair machine. Be careful if you lift weights. Just make sure you don't screw something up. Google lifting with scoliosis. For cardio start slow. For weights start light. Don't be afraid to lift light. Even the jacked dudes lift the tiny weights. They just do more reps. But if you can do it ten to eight times with good form it is where you want it to be. After a month or two of going to the gym it will become a habit and you most likely won't stop probably ever.

This comes from a person who fixed his lordosis/kyphosis in the course of 4 YEARS.
In the last year only I found what really helped me a lot and this was: Handstands and running.

Handstands is the best exercise but not your average "loose body" banana handstand.
Go for the gymnast straight handstand, learn to use your shoudlers and pelvis (each one influences the other when moving) to achieve the straight body posture during handstands, brace your whole body from the feet to the glutes to the wrists, brace everything all the time so you can teach your body to work as one during handstands. Also be sure to breath, to breath deep but relaxed, no need to force your breath but also no need to deprive your muscles of their precious fuel (oxygen).

This exercise alone made me stand better, it strenghtened my whole spinal chain and i feel like I have tons of metalic meat protecting me there now.

For the record I started with 5 minutes of total handstand time per day (yes 7 days a week you faget), I did them through the day, for example I woke up did a 30 second handstand, then did another 30 seconds at work and then I did the other 4 minutes until the night, some days I only did 5 and 10 second handstands because I was too tired or totally out of it but I still did them.
After 5 months my handstand skills went crazy and I no longer needed a wall for support and I also raised the time to 10 minutes per day since I could easily hold a 2 minute free handstand with ease, I achieved perfect straight line at this time too and I found out that my central upper back muscles (between the 2 scapulae) were very weak since they got sore all the time from doing STRAIGHT handstands (if I had done the banana ones they wouldn't have got sore) and those muscles were the reason for my kyphosis, after 2 more months I wachtes as my posture while walking got prettieer and straighter.

All this time I was also a lot into running, when I say running I mean serious 20 to 30 minutes running with a good pace and even some sprints in there.
The running helped too I think but the handstands were what really made my posture muscles stronger.

I’ve personally always felt like finding any kind of good working advice on losing weight is some kind of secret, probably because of being constantly hit with barrages of “ONE SECRET TO WEIGHT LOSS YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW!” ads on different sites. I want to know what the ACTUAL best method of losing weight quickly is. I know diet and exercise are obviously the key factors to looking better and really I only want to lose about 30 or so pounds (I’m currently approaching 200, about 180 or so and used to being 140, I’m 5’8” and 26 so I feel like I’ve gotta do this NOW and get into a routine otherwise I’ll be a fat slob at 30 and that’s not how I’m trying to be). I live in an apartment complex with a basic gym that has treadmills and weights/lifting contraptions so it’s pretty basic but I don’t know where to start. I have significant belly fat now and really only need to get rid of that, as I’m what you could call “skinny fat” from drinking so much beer (I quit recently, as in a week ago). I have a huge thing of protein powder and I think doing a meal replacement thing would be best for me but not totally sure, which is why I can to the ones I trust; you guys.

TL;DR I’m trying to lose about 40 pounds of belly fat and don’t have an exercise routine but have access to gear to use and need to know some tips on quickly losing said weight. Thanks y’all

I did 1000 calorie deficit (eating about 1600) and turned out alright however I paid attention to protein and weights and tapered the deficit when I was down to about 190 pounds. I stopped around 175 (from about 300) as I'm 6 foot 1 though. At that point I was neither skinnyfat not super ripped.

However you're right, its important to get more info than just "this is my weight, make it less". I have seen a guy who was I think 6 foot 3 and about 160 pounds asking for weight loss advice though and we just don't know if this person is actually suffering body dysmorphia or the like and it's worth checking proceeding.

Anyway you're doing good work.

I'm OP, I bought a scale and it says I'm 132lbs after eating. I can't really believe it, I weighed dumbbells and myself holding them and it was accurate but I just don't believe it somehow. I guess because I lost weight too fast through cardio with no muscle underneath I still look really fat. I don't think I have BDD because I can clearly see I've lost weight and I feel smaller, I just feel a lot bigger than 132.

My TDEE would supposedly be 1695 doing the same amount of cardio as I was since I'm 21/5'5"/f but I don't know what it'd be doing calisthenics (this routine https://www.circlejerk.com/r/bodyweightfitness/wiki/kb/recommended_routine but he https://youtu.be/AB3HhP2GYk0?t=442 says beginners should skip pull-up progression and dip progression) 3 times then doing cardio for half an hour on rest days. Is that really enough to get into shape, like lean and toned, if I'm sedentary otherwise? My goal now is to build strength and to be really fit but I doubt my body will show much change with just this routine and no other changes. What about strengthening my core, like if I found a routine for that could I just add it in the morning or is that too much? I want to make progress as fast as possible but I'm not sure what to spend my time on in a way that's sustainable.

You are not fat. You're probably a little squishy but in a healthy and attractive way. Your harsh deficit is why you're so tired, you're not fat.

Your TDEE is not going to ever being 1695 doing anything. That's your BMR. What you'll burn if you spend your entire day in bed. Eat at least 2K a day and start increasing that. You want to flatten your weight loss out. You can sustain another 10-15 pounds before you start making yourself ill but if you want to gain muscle don't, at your current weight you have a month or two before you need to stop losing weight, but you're going to get more tired and ill. You need to slow that shit down and ideally stop before then. Nothing is sustainable if you're not eating more than you are. I bet you also walk places, do you work, how do you get there etc?

If you want to be strength train for strength. Low reps high weights. Eat more protein. You won't get hugeswole that way. You're a woman and even if you run a small surplus this will not be an issue. Doing cardio on off days will further attenuate the gains without killing your strength. You probably want to switch a 500 calorie deficit right away and taper that after a couple of weeks. You don't need to lose a lot of weight, just a little fat and gain some muscle.

Personally I only do my core once a week but that's my one not gym day. I do my shopping, walk many miles and then do some sit ups, leg raises and stuff like that.

Lastly you are probably way too hard on yourself. If you were off by about 40% of your body weight (and thus thought you had about 4 times the fat you actually do) you do not have a very reliable self image. Be careful.

You're fine, dude. 180lbs on a cheap door frame with this pull up bar is still far from its total capacity.

I forget what they're called, but I'd had one now for about four years and I love it because it fits in every doorframe I've ever tried and it has zero installation. I use it once or twice a week to compliment my weight lifting sessions.

It's amazing to me how many people can't do a single pull up. Or friends of mine who are well within a healthy bmi but they can't do three pull ups in a set.

Another good way to build upper body strength is climbing trees. Climbing trees puts a lot of focus on each arm individually, and many different muscles. It also helps build your lower body, especially on largely branchless trunks where you climb by clamping your things around the tree.

Honestly climbing trees is one of the best, most natural work outs you could do. You won't get as muscular as with traditional weight lifting, but you will absolutely get ripped as fuck.

Ive been going to the ymca the past month or 2. Its this huge facility a block away from me, the only issue is the other members.

Every time I go into the locker room I get stared down by greasy fat ass old men in their 70s. They sit their naked and stare at me as I change. I feel super violated and its to the point where I may start a fight with one of them at some point.

Anyone else have this issue? I feel super violated, I see them go into the boys locker room for 12 year olds too. I feel like there isnt really much I can do about this except buy the upgraded locker room, but thats waste of money and i shouldnt have to deal with that.

I go to a gym at a tennis club and there's a lot of 55-75 year old men strutting around naked.

Now they don't stare me down and I don't do much changing because I chose the gym due to its extreme proximity to my house. But I do notice that they just don't give a single fuck about what people think. Several of them clean their teeth in the shower.

Maybe you have a problem. Maybe you're projecting. Take another look at what's going on and if you still don't like it remember you have several steps of escalation between posting on an anonymous imageboard and committing assault. If it's the same handful of guys and there are designated kids changing rooms inform the staff you've seen those guys going in there and you're worried about it as a concerned fellow user.

Hey what's up!

Is Yoga really a workout? I find it very relaxing and good for releaving tension. It even raises my heartrate when I do it long enough, but of course it's not nearly as intense as cardio or other bodyweight exercises.

There is a yoga instructor who attends my gym sometimes as a patron. Which is to say she is SERIOUS about yoga but also does strength training and cardio.

Now she obviously believes in yoga but she doesn't rely on it alone.

I don't know what the hell you are talking about. You have to seek out hipster gyms like this. You are doing something wrong. It is just the same shit that you are talking about except. My gym has a half cardio/weights section and has roid dudes. Go to one of the chain gyms and it will probably like the "good old days." They play music according to the area. More hip hop if I go to the other gym that has less white people. But most will play top 40 wear headphones but top 40 is really easy to ignore.

The gym I went to for years had a really even cross section of America in it, it was pretty damn chill

As for the masculine thing I have no real idea what's causing it but it is absolutely infuriating me atm. I mean anyone my age, mid twenties just wants to talk about fantasy and multi-media crap instead of doing shit and smashing pussy, it's truly the age of the kidults <sigh>

Lol at the deadlifting 350 line. Maybe I just follow too many deadlift pages on instagram. I myself hit 470 right before the new year (was trying to go for an even 500 but didn't get it) and I'm not a super jacked up dude.

Commercial gyms are one thing but there's still hole in the wall places you can clank around actual metal plates with the big boys at least in my area. Look for powerlifting/strongman gyms. I used to go to one for a while but it was like $80 a month. I loved it though, they had atlas stones, sleds, power racks, the whole 9.

I don't know, even all of the Planet Fitness' I've been to have at least 3 or 4 super muscle-y guys there at any given time. I've never been to a gym without at least a few meatheads.

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.

Used to be a thread posted by some guy that was a good beginners guide, like it was as good as you could get without an essay and dozens of links and he'd link it in threads like this. But it only got love from new and passing posters so it was a losing battle. It might still be somewhere between here and page 12 for all I know though.

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

This is great advice. I meditate on a regular basis, but would like to try and get in tune with my body and mind connection via tai chi or yoga. It's no good having a strong body that is essentially not functional

you're either trolling at a lot quality level, or you're stupid.. either or.
Go and research into the science research of meditation. Brain plasticity is a real thing, as well as meditation having various physical and mental health benefits.
