Recently I dropped down to low body fat so that I could workout and get more definition. I need to know what workouts and reps I need to do for fast gains for a V shape torso? High reps low weight or low reps with heavy weights? HIIT exercise?plyometrics? What will create gains the fastest? Thank you very much

It can be on any machine or on any lift.

List the absolute maximum amount you have ever lifted. Your one time max-rep.

I know it is not unheard of though relatively uncommon. I managed to reach four digits in the vertical leg-press. I lifted over 1,200 pounds in one rep. Bearing in mind this was on an OLD machine. the bar itself weighed 250 lbs and the pieces of metal that the bar rested on? thin pieces of iron. So I had to let the weight back down slowly to rest on those small pieces of iron, lest they snap and I found myself fucking mutilated or something.

And although lifting over 1,000 pounds on a vertical leg press is not unheard of, it is still a point of pride for me. With sheer muscle and determination I lifted over HALF A FUCKING TON.

Goddamn I love it.

So, whatever lift or press you did, list your absolute maximum one-time rep, and why you are proud of it.

Every injury is easily avoidable, except the ones that aren't. Accidents happen, momentary lapses of concentration happen, people fuck up. Maybe you didn't spend just enough time warming up your calves so they're still tight when you go to squat. Maybe you didn't know about an underlying condition with your right TFL so you never did soft tissue work on it, or you couldn't find the right equipment to work on your Psoas. All bad form, all stupid mistakes, all easily preventable, but they happened-- so now what?

I haven't spent a single day without taking some sort of drug since high school and I am a massive beast that could eat whoever wrote the OP.

Also, steroids are drugs and I do those too. The only really bad drugs for gains is cigarettes and alcohol. The cigarette thing is obvious... You really have to limit yourself to never getting a hangover. If you drink enough to get a hangover you won't be able to train that well.

Weed does nothing to your gains, and even though painkillers lower your test, you should be taking steroids anyway.

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.

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

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.

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.

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)

>>93585
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.

Growing up was never into sports but now going into my second year at university I want to get into one of the University teams. Am I pretty much destined to always be way lower in skill in any given sport due to not playing it growing up? Is there any Sports that are particularly made up of players who began when they were young adults rather than as children? IDK fencing or some shit like that?

I'm in Ireland so Rugby is actually one of the most played sports since Childhood

I've never heard of inter-murals, it seems to be just a group that casually plays multiple sports? That would be perfect but it sadly isn't a thing here.

After watching fencing in the Olympics, I wouldn't mind trying it out myself, but I'm still open to suggestions

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.

I was not prepared for just how physically demanding fencing is, so I only lasted one semester of intramural Epee before I discovered that I loved beig a lazy slob. It's a martial art, make no mistake. Try it, check out Foil, Epee and Sabre!

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…

OP Here. Decided to join the surfing society. Would recommend it to anyone interested in taking up new hobbies at Uni, although I hear the surfing community is quite toxic in the US. It's basically a social club with surfing as the medium, trips around the country every second weekend and a trip planned for Morocco in January.

Thanks for all the advice guys, needed to stop thinking about how to "win at sports" and just find something that I enjoy doing
