Use the same logic as you would buying a car. You need a "car," you go to the lot and then trust the dealer to put you on the right one. After all, they clearly know more about cars than you, right? Lol no
No one does this because you'll get bullied and coerced into getting something you don't need, can't afford and costs too much to keep up. If you live in the city and can't find parking, getting a bigass lifted truck isn't a good idea.

Find out what your goals are. Find someone who wants to help you reach those goals and who helps you realize what other goals you want to set for yourself. Find someone who can both handle your pace and tempo but who isnt shy about pushing you. Find someone who isnt going to charge you an arm and a leg for waving your arms around for an hour; someone who's able and flexible to accomodate potential irregularities in your schedule. They work for you, but you are also working for them.

I've dealt with some serious life issues and so have pretty much literally been sitting around all day for the past eight years. Luckily I'm still only 20 but my joints have been clicking like crazy for years and my posture is fucked. I have a bunch of what feels like pinched nerves and everything hurts (neck, lats, spine, biceps, lower back, knees, shins) quite badly in some way. I can get more specific if you need.

I'm going to begin somewhere with Starting Stretching and the joint routine Molding Mobility. Is that good enough for my case? What else should I do? My goal is to release stiffness/tightness and improve my flexibility, I think. My muscles are unusually weak, if you can imagine. I guess I should include some cardio and bodyweight exercises.

What stretches and exercises should I do to help correct my posture?

Now I know it's pretty fucking hard to do but I see it happen. I'm not trying to lose much fat at all so I know this won't be difficult. It's just that I have abs barely visible at this point and want them to pop a bit more. I mean I can literally pull down a bit of fat and see most of the definition in them.

How do I lose that tiny bit of fat covering my abs while still gaining muscle? I've looked it up and see various answers. Thanks.

When should you stop losing fat and start gaining? Currently I'm 70kg at 5'10 and just trying to get rid of my gut (not that big). Will that naturally burn off if I do weight training since it's very little fat or should I just focus on getting body fat way down or i'll never lose it?

I realize that's a fairly convoluted question but I'm trying to save myself a lot of wasted time and effort and just not sure.

Depends on whether or not you're just trying to lose fat (sounds like you are) or are trying to build muscle. I didn't have visible abs at all but started doing weights and I gained muscle plus lost fat. I eat maintenance on days I don't work out and a little over days i do. I'm no fitness guru by any means but for reference about a couple months in and this is what my stomach looks like now...

Kinda depends on how much fat you have/want to lose

I do not go to the gym and only really do brief workouts at home 4-5 times a week. I mainly focus on doing pushup variations, ab workouts as well as doing a dumbbell workout 2 times a week. My biceps and triceps have been growing really really slow and don't know how to increase my gains. I don't have a gym close (trust me there isn't one close and don't live in the West) so I use dumbbells.

I start off with around 12KG and do 3 sets of 10 reps on bicep curls, then increase to around 14KG. I then do hammer curls with the same weight and routine, then do a few other exercises like sitting down curls. I eat healthy and my only real downfall is beer 2-3 times a week. I intake enough protein for muscle growth but nothing crazy. How can I improve with what I have to work with? I was thinking maybe callisthenics...

Dude I have been doing 200-300 push up variations for 3-5 days a week and I have noticed that my chest has bulked right up in comparison to how it would be naturally, but I have only been doing that for around 6 weeks.

I had an arm day today and did 5 sets of 5s with increasing weights on curls and hammer curls, and yeah I added in other dumbbell exercises and hit my triceps. Diamond pushups also help with that I hear and I did 30 reps of 3 sets of diamond pushups, inclined. We see how this works out and leave beer along as much as possible, so thanks for the input people

I use to be very skinny. 6'0 and 130-135 lbs. Then I started working at a desk and gained a fuck ton of weight and got super fat. I made it up to 240 lbs before deciding to do something about it.

I've now lost quite a bit of weight. I'm down to 197 lbs. I'd like to keep going but I feel like the weight is not coming off as fast as I'd like it to. I have no problem with extreme calorie restriction but I'm worried it is not as effective? I currently eat 1200 calories a day but would like to go down to 800. When I try to google for answers I get a lot of stuff saying that by going that low your body would go into "starvation mode" and you won't lose fat as quickly. I'm not sure if this is truth or if this is just something that fat people came up with as a reason to not eat less.

Is there a serious problem with me going below 1200 calories per day?

bruh 1200 calories is like nothing. You probably rekt your metabolism. Track what you're eating, start working out. If you're really eating sub 1200 and not losing weight you should probably eat at maintenance for a few weeks so your body stops thinking that you're starving to death.

Even when i was 135 i still had quite a bit of fat. Im not necessarily saying i want to get to that weight again as i do have a bit more muscle now and im a little stronger, but i dont want to be fat anymore.

And yes, i have been eating exactly 1200 calories and i am still losing weight but it is taking longer than i want it to.

I didnt mention in my OP but i have also been doing body weight exercises in the mornings... pushups, lunges, squats, and crunches.

Thanks for the replies. Im not going to go down to 800 calories but I increasing my calories from 1200 sounds completely counterintuitive

Exercise more. Do 400-600 calories more exercise a day and add a couple of hundred calories on. Worst case is that you're deficit increases 200-400 calories, however it might encourage your body to cling to it's fat less. If you're losing weight but your body hordes fat what tissue do you think is going?

When I'm 175 pounds, at about your height I am below 10% body fat. You were skinnyfat at 135 (probably not much more fat actually just no muscle definition). If you're not changing your diet fine but lift weights. I'm 30 and I am a long way off optimising my muscle growth. Strength training while you lose weight and maybe continuing after will work, Someone else can probably offer a better alternative but if you're doing a variety of lifts working all your muscles, hitting the gym 3 times a week (at first just go when it stops hurting) 3 sets of 3 to 5 and eating a decent amount of protein it will help immensely. You're probably so unfit your noob gains will be unreal. When you start to feel your waistline (not weight) is appropriate you might want to change your approach or just continue on a higher calorie diet. Someone proper experts post here and can probably give better advice but this will benefit you.

Going off the top of my head but I do have a friend who is stick thin but also very meticulous, his favourate physical activity is hang gliding so he aims to be as light as he can be without making himself ill. He's 6 foot and 130-135 pounds.

135 at 6 foot isn't technically underweight but drop even 10 pounds and your life expectancy is about on par with someone who is morbidly obese. You have a lot more give upwards than down. Being overweight doesn't actually reduce your life expectancy though 240 pounds is obese and OP will be better off a bit thinner.

hello, i use opiates poppy tea and heroin. the poppy tea especially makes it hard to get past half mast. i take pine pollen, ginseng, tribulus, they help but unless it's so 18hrs after dosing, getting my rocks off will be a crap shoot.

was thinking of using clomid and some sort of estrogen inhibitor. any advice or guide to follow? preferred brand of clomid?

  1. Clomid isn't the drug you think it is. It can increase T, but at the same time it can increase E which will make any problem even worse. Sides also include T dropping back to base after a couple of weeks, depression, long term risk to vision and lowered libido in men.

2. For you Cialis may be a good short term drug. 10mg the night before you want to fuck will do the trick. Coincidentally the 10mg will last 60-80 hours. It'll give you a 10/10 erection anytime you want one during this period.

3. A long term strategy is getting off the drugs. A common side effect of opiates is lowered libido and ED.

This. Also, Clomid selectively binds to receptors in the nipples, so it won't help.

Bodybuilders use a lot of opis because of injury etc., but they are also using testosterone. Try that. Or try the viagra. But dont do clomid, or even anastrazole, which is an actual estrogen blocker.

So I just got one of these last week, the Charge HR, and fuck these things are pretty awesome.

It's amazing to see how many calories I actually burn in a day. I thought I burned less but it makes sense how I can loose weight so quick. It adds up. Not only that seeing how I sleep (I'm a huge insomnica and take Seroquel and trazadone at night) is amazing considering my levels of energy level off during the day big time. It's nice being able to check up on my sleep so I can try to adjust it the next day.
I thought it was going to be a waste of money but the little thing is useful as hell to me and is pretty cool looking.

Not only that it's a fucking motion activated clock!!!!

eat small fruit meals and some water whenever you feel thirsty or hungry, but eat until you are no longer hungry, nooot when you are stuffed. if you keep moving, the sugar will go right into the muscles as soon as you eat it. high quality in season monomeals is the best. of course you cant eat eggs and bacon one day and do this the next but if you are hclf vegan you will have excellent insulin sensitivity and if you put something as stimulating as acid on top of that you will be able to dance like mad tirelessly for 20 hours straight.

hey fellow festival goer, I usually do a ton of cardio come spring time to prepare myself and it works out great.

I run at least 3 miles twice a week, sometimes more. The key is non-stop. I was just at hulaween and when my friends were fried the fuck out and tired on day 2 from walking, I was tired but definitley able to catch the late night sets unlike them.

Some strength training would be good for poi spinning, I know that can tax your shoulders quite a bit.
