I kinda started shooting heroin again for a little bit. I was off for 2 months. Just started lifting again early last month. The hardest part was my endurance. I would do one set and feel like my heart was going to explode.

Its just really hard getting back in when I've been out more than a week. So discouraging feeling like you have to work just to get back where you were, but you just have to suck it up and you'll feel fucking awesome after you finish puking.

I went to a modeling agency today, i was actually only applying for an graphic design internship but the guy actually offered me a part time job as a model too.

Said to get more abs definition in 30 days, besides cutting weight, what are some good abs definition exercises i should be doing?

I'll take a look at stomach vacuums and planks, been neglecting then for years.

Also i will be taking vyvanse for my attention deficit disorder, so i guess thats a no for an EC stack, or i will have some heart problems, i mind as well hope the vyvanse will help me eat less.

Thanks for the answers guys.

ok so first off let me say that all this advice i got from my bar manager who is also a competitive female bodybuilder

you know that piece of equipment people do back extensions on? instead of facing the floor, lay on your side, hold a plate with the arm facing the ground, put your other palm behind your head, lower (using your core obvs) all the way down til the plate hits the floor, then come up as far as you can. Use a heavy enough plate that you can do about 3x10 (high reps are better for ab development, you dont want them to get huge)

hanging leg raises and oblique raises are also god tier, but require quite a big of ab work to snag.

also ab rollers are pretty good too, especially if you can balance a pl8 on your back. These really helped to shred my upper abs and obliques (if you down them out at alternating angles each rep)

but yeah, just my 2 cents.

also anon, post some pics in the Current Body Thread!!! I wanna see what you look like for comparison, it's always been my secret dream to get paid to take my shirt off

sup guys, bit of back story. TL;DR - should i cut or keep bulking?

I'm 23 y/o 6ft tall

Jan 2012 - 225lbs of fat, never touched a weight, wanted to lose weight.

August 2012 - 135lbs skinnyfat, mostly did cardio/bodyweight stuff

August 2013 - 165lbs, average body, been lifting about a year but still learning form

July 2014 - 155lbs, just finished my first real cut. abs for the first time in my life but skinny as fuck.

June 2016 (Currently) 181 lbs. Calipers say 12% body fat, I'd guess somewhere closer to 15-16%. My abs are only visible if I flex in decent lighting.

I'm torn between these two options.

I went from playing world of warcraft all day and living off of junk food, alcohol, and soda to doing cardio 5 times a week, eating clean, and only drinking water.

I had been fat my whole life and was determined to get skinny enough to see my abs, which i now realize was fucking retarded.

maintaining 10% is near impossible, and at 10% youre weak and atrophy will be likely to happen. The lowest Ive seen thats manageable is 12-14%. I recommend the bulk 3 weeks at a 500 surplus, and 1 week at maintenemce or 250 surplus.

This will allow a steady gain while not getting too fat.

I really have been there by the way. I started and finished heavier because 135 pounds is a bit dangerous for a man of our height. But I went from 300 to 175 in 18 months with 280 to 190 done in a year. Not near as fast as you though. I did ramp up and ramp down at either end of the diet.

I did it at 26 though and my skin only shrunk back a little. I look WAY better I feel WAY better but I will never stop being flabby even as I pulling my belt in to 31 inches, let alone seeing my abs. You have some of my envy.

As others have said below 10% body fat you will find your energy drops off. Well no, if you're eating sensible and not at a deficit you'll be okay for a few more % but it's hard to run more than a very small deficit at that body fat without being exhausted easily. The thing is your exact mileage will vary though. I would have started tapering my deficit off by now but I have 5 days of work between me and some holiday and a fair amount of food and booze so I'll just power through the remaining gym sessions. Even then if that gets too hard I'll just eat more. No point in making yourself feel like shit.

Hey man, experienced lifter here (see >>93453 and >>93454 for my qualifications) and right off the bat, the simple answer is KEEP BULKING. Here's why...
  • Everyone wants to stop a bulk early, but this is bad because when you're gaining mass, your body is processing stuff differently than during a cut. Every time you switch up something as important as your diet and exercise, it takes your body time to adjust. Basically, you're just causing extra stress on your body when with the time tables you're talking about, you're only going to get a week or 2 at most of actual good cutting
  • Most people don't realize how much they're going to lose whenever they cut weight. Body fat takes up a lot more weight than you might think (me going from 14% to 8% lost about 20lbs of JUST fat, and I've always been a lean guy) and also YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE STRENGTH AND SIZE no matter what when you cut, so always take that into account and gain plenty of extra so you have something to cut away from without going DYEL as soon as you put a shirt on
-Lastly, and this is more psychological than anything else, but by now you've obviously learned that weight lifting is a lot more MENTALLY demanding than anything else. Picking heavy stuff up and putting it down isnt that hard. But driving yourself to do it EVERY DAY and stick with it consistently over a long period of time? That takes dedication and discipline. So go ahead and stick with your original goal. Keep bulking til your hit what you set out to hit. Complete your goal, finish it totally, then begin the next stage. It'll give you a good habit on which you can base a long lifetime of lifting weights and getting alpha af

remember bro, we're all gonna make it :)

I have always been lean built but I did have a slight pouch due to beer drinking. I have been working out more so the past few months, mainly resistance training, heavy weights, low reps, as well as throwing in some intense burpee sessions. The fat belly has gone and my body is becoming more dominant and muscular that is for sure. However if I have a cheat day or drink some beer, I seem to be put back like 3 steps.

The thing is I have a quite slow metabolism. My dad has an underachieve thyroid but he has always been fucking ripped. I don't talk to him much these days so I am asking you lot, what ways can you really tricker the metabolism to kick in overdrive?

there is no such thing as a slow metabolism, if I ripped your thyroid gland out of your throat, provided you got medical.treatment for it, youde gain maybe 10lbs.

you do not exercise and do not have muscle mass, that is why your body does not expend energy, especially energy you store on your body in the form of fat.

count your calories, cardio 3x week and lifting 3x week

I promise you everyone giving you advice here is DYEL af

If you enjoy a few beers one or two nights a week, its not going to kill your gains. If you go out and get shitfaced every night, yeah that's gonna fuck up your body's ability to repair itself. If you're lean and need help getting ripped, the simple fact is you need to eat more. You're not special with your metabolism, you've probably just never actually measure your food and tracked your caloric intake before, I promise it's always surprisingly far away from what you THINK you're getting.

Just work hard (lift HEAVY weights for 5x5, check out Starting Strength on google for a good routine) eat LOTS of good foods (at least 3000 calories a day, gainer shakes help w this) and make sure to get plenty of sleep.

I posted in the current body thread if you wanna see ^^^ in action

just make sure you're hitting the weights hard enough, no pain no gain as they say! also make sure you're eating about 1 gram of protein per lb of your body weight a day!! also its a good idea to eat your biggest meal right after your workout, or at least something calorie rich with good macros (like a gainer shake)

I honestly don't do cardio unless i have to pass a PT test but you've gotta be joshing me. All I said was any exercise at all helps, maybe it wasn't nice of me to call you a faggot so for that I'm sorry. But lets get real here, the only part of your post that isn't brosciene was "lift heavy" and "eat."

I remember being a depressed fat fuck who would rather get fucked up than break a sweat.

Hatha Yoga (Iyengar's) to get that near-perfect posture and spine setting.

Horse stance to hell to open up your pelvis.
Also add lots of active splits and side splits allong with leg abduction exercises.

Deadlifts and/or clean and jerks.

Heavy back squats, lots of rest squat during the day (At least 30 min), pause squats (with and without weight) to fire up your quadz.

Hip extension exercises (hip thrusts and glute bridges with and without weight and 1-leged) allong with others to fire up your hammies.

Sprints to make your butt like that, superset those sprints with back scales/1 leg deadlifts.

Full body three to four times a week is about optimum for a natural lifter. Protein synthesis gets elevated and then falls to baseline for any given muscle within 36 hours.


You shouldn't be so tired you can't do any curls after squatting. If youre super worried about it, rotate the exercise you were too tired to do last workout to the front of the list.

You don't need a spotter and you don't start lifting mad weight. Use common sense, you're not doing rocket surgery.

Read up on lifting exercise.
Download jetfit app.
Hit the gym.
Use low weight/just the bar as you begin. FOCUS ON FORM, GOD DAMMIT.

You want to master proper form before beginning to lift heavier. Squat the bar, deadlift the bar. Dumb bell curl with 10s. Your main priority is nailing down form so you don't hurt yourself. Slowly add weight over time.

I've never gone to the gym with someone. It's a solo thing for me, and I'd rather keep it that way.

While the necessity of getting form down before everything is true its not a bad idea to have a spotter. Even though I bench 2 pl8 now when I first started I needed help after a few reps of the bar.

OP, its not autistic at all to ask a random guy near you for a quick spot. Whether new or not he should understand, unless he's just a weird asshole. That said, you don't want to make a random miss out on their own workout by spotting you. You should only ask for a spot when you are fairly sure you might fail a rep.

People like to meme about dyel crews but the vast majority of new lifters start by going in with a friend, and for good reason. If you can find a friend who either wants to start lifting or already lifts it really is worth it to go to the gym with them, as long as you can stay focused and won't get distracted with conversation. The dyel crew meme comes from those guys who show up together but just stand around a bench or a rack while talking instead of using it. Avoid being that guy and its really not a problem.

Have fun and don't quit OP. However you choose to go about this the most important thing is that you've decided to start.

start at a rpe 6/10, do linear progression (add 10 to squat and deads, 5 to overhead bench and rows) everytime you loft, if you fail 5 do 3, if you fail 3 go back 10%. if you do 3, do 5 next time.

everything is 5x5

And most websites i was reading, say you have to take a month break of exercises, thing is, how can i avoid losing much muscle mass during this time? It also worries me that i will be unable to eat well at the beggining, i also been using gym for years as a way to deal with depression, and im kind afraid it will come back when i stop lifting weights.

Hey guys, I could use a little advice.
About 2 years ago I lost and gained 50 pounds in just a few months. I went from 180 to 130 and then back to 180. I had a severe case of Ulcerative Colitis, which makes you internally bleed a lot.

I've grown pretty well back to my usual size thanks to steroids (24-12 months ago), but my body has also sustained many injuries in the process, and I could use some insight on how to deal with them.

My muscles are pretty solid. My steroids and workouts have done them justice. But that being said, all my joints, and like my rotator cuffs and stuff, are all too weak. Sometimes my joints just slide out of their sockets when I relax, and they make a disgusting bunch of popping sounds and feel like they're being stretched way out. My ball and socket in my shoulders keep sliding out, and my lower back, like upper hip, chronically has hurt for the past 12 months. Feels like lots of little pins and needles right on both sides of the bottom of the lower back muscle. I've been getting it stretched out at the chiropractor, but it still hasn't stopped hurting. Also, I developed minor scoliosis, like my backbone is a little curved and a little rotated. And I constantly have pain right where my neck and brain meet, like the muscles back there get sore all the time and I desperately need to relax my neck or else I get serious migraines.

Any advice for me? I'm not afraid of diets or working out. I actually workout like 2-3 times a week (lots of no-weight workouts like pushups, pull ups, squats, dips, etc) and I eat pretty healthy. I don't get many vegetables, but I take vitapack vitamin packs almost daily as well as eat a lot of fruit and a lot of meat, like steak and chicken. I'm a big fruit smoothie fan, and I also like cooking steaks and chickens.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, but I smoke lots of weed and take like 10mg of cyclobenzaprine muscle relaxers every night before bed, as prescribed by a doctor who thought it would help me with my neck issues. Admittedly, it's been pretty successful, like my migraines have dropped by about 95%, but the soreness is still there.

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?

Believe it or not, alcohol calories aren't metabolized by the body in the same way regular calories are. What really kills people is eating a ton after they get smashed, because the body will prioritize getting rid of the toxic alcohol calories first and save the food calories for later, which leads to a better chance of fat depositing if you eat too much after drinking too much. In general if you moderate both alcohol and food you won't be too much worse for wear, especially if you don't eat anything after drinking alcohol.

Hopefully it will be helpful to any other newcomers

"beer gut" and visceral fat primarily attributed to sugar consumption. these are the two biggest factors when it comes to having excess fat around the midriff/belly

cut these two things back over a prolonged period and youll be fine. you dont need muscle, exercise and all that for this. And no, you cant chose where to lose weight through exercise nor is it necessary to. So long as your general body fat is where you want it, excess specifically in the stomach region is caused by these specific things

im talking zero added sugar if you really wanna be serious about it. drastically reduced if you wanna be "sorta" serious about it. Find out how much sugar is in the things you take for granted, honestly, these times its sneaking its way into absolutely fucking everything. sometimes its unavoidable, naturally occuring sugars (like in milk, some vegetables, etc) but quite often it is simply added as part of the flavour-base. im talking marinades, ketchup, curry sauces, cereals, supposedly "healthy" fruit drinks and smoothies and juices and such, fucking low-fat yoghurt. Start paying attention to the per-gram value of sugar in all these things and youll be blown away

sugar really is the foremost, leading cause of visceral fat. it is in everything and our body loves that, companies rely on our bodys hardwiring to crave and appreciate sugar when they churn out their gunky preservative-laden sickly products

Sugar doesn't matter at all unless you're diabetic. The only thing that matters is calories.

this is only correct on some levels, and wrong on others. for a beginner avoiding sugar is one of the lowest hanging fruit
