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.

Don't take creatine. It's stupid unless you always want to take creatine and have a curiosity about the strength of your hairline genetics .

Always work evenly on 3D Plane- balance pull lifts with push lifts, upper lifts with lower lifts.

Don't use machines. Your stabilizers, serratus, and other muscles and muscle groups will not develop properly or cohesively.

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

No social media posting. The only validation you need is from shitposting on /ana/

.one rep maxes serve no purpose but exact markers. They aren't good for training.

>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.

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

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.

Sup, /ana/. First time posting on this board.

25 yo male. Trying to become a better version of myself this year. Spent over 4 years addicted to benzodiazepines, they changed my personality, they destroyed my personal relationships and lost me jobs because I couldn't control myself with how much I took. I was an absolute waste of space, I stole from people I care about and I almost lost died so many times. I've been clean for nearly 6 months and I'm proud as fuck.

Stuff's been getting better since I quit. Sure I'm unemployed and I don't have a girlfriend anymore, but I've learnt to drive and I'm on the brink of getting my license. Even got a tidy car lined up. I started hitting the gym a while back with a friend who's got a setup at his house. The adrenaline rush was new to me and I enjoyed feeling like I was getting stronger. But he stopped inviting me and I did nothing to replace the exercise so the muscle I put on went away.

I don't have the cash to join a real gym right now. But I do have access to the place in my picture. It's an outdoor gym full of machines that utilise your bodyweight, it was built 1/4 mile from me years ago and nobody ever uses it.

Right now, at home I focus on my abs. I will do the following exercises daily unless I wake up with sore muscles in which case I'll let the sore ones recover for a day or two. 40 pressups, 50 situps, 20 bicycle crunch reps, and 20 spiderman plank crunch reps. While I feel like it's helping to tone me up, I don't feel like it's enough as I'm yet to get a sore abdomen from doing it. What are some of your ab routines?

At the outdoor gym, I haven't really got a routine together yet. I went there the other day and exerted myself a little too much on a machine that works your back and shoulder muscles, as well as your triceps. All those muscles were incredibly sore the next morning and still are a little bit now. There's that machine, as well as a chest press, leg press, dip bar, pull up bar. It's got more or less everything I should need. I was hoping you guys could help me work out an effective routine for myself, as I know it's good to only focus on two major muscl…

Okay there's people who know more than me but getting the ball rolling.

If your muscles are sore you didn't really over exert yourself. If you've actually injured yourself you'd know. What you likely got was DOMS which is a result of pushing a muscle that you rarely use hard and is caused by the muscle repairing itself (and making itself stronger). As a rule of thumb if you're getting DOMS then your frequency should just be "Go back when you aren't sore any more". However if you regularly exercise those muscles they will stop getting sore even as they progress. So don't take "No soreness" as "no improvement". Look for what your limits do.

As far as numbers go, if you're doing absolutely tonnes in one go you're just burning energy at that point. People will tell you it's anywhere between 3x10 and 5x10 but if you can do more than 30 in one go, odds are you should try to increase the resistance/weight if you can safely do so.

For a lot (thought not all) of those bodyweight machines carrying a weighted backpack might help when you're getting to that point. Again this will vary with the machine, i've seen some of them where a backpack wouldn't impede motion or hell you could even just have it in the seat with you and it'd increase the load and some where weight distributed badly would hurt you. It's probably better to play it safe. If you can do the bodyweight machines well you're be fairly fit, and you will have a great basis for going to the gym, it'd be better to "settle" there for a few months before you can afford gym fees than to injure yourself and never be the same again but there's definitely machines you could load extra weight on to.

My understanding of creatine is it allows you to hold more water and thus increases endurance and how hard you can push yourself, just taking it doesn't do much so don't just consume it for the sake of it. Only take it when you are going to go use the outdoor gym for example.

For pullups if you can do any multiple of them that is enough. I do 3 sets of 5-7 towards the end of my routine so it's not reflective of what I can …

I can't figure out what's wrong with me but I have some sort of weird thing going on with my throat, it could be related to my anxiety disorder. I can't figure it out.

At random times my throat will feel like it's closing up, I can kind of feel mucus or something stuck in the back of my throat and nose. Sometimes it's so bad I actually feel like I'm dying.

It's happened in the past but one night I decided to smoke a piece of moldy, old weed I found under a blanket. It gave me an irritated throat the doctor said, but wasn't anything serious.

Since them I only smoked once after a week, but it happened again and I quit for good.

Some days it doesn't happen at all and others it feels like I'm being strangled for hours on end. Yesterday I was find, but tonight it came around again randomly at 9pm... I can't figure out what the fuck it is and it's really scaring me. I'm going to go to the doctor tomorrow to see what they think, but I don't know if it's just my anxiety disorder causing my mind to play tricks on me. Once I took a ton of Klonopin and it didn't go away so I feel like it may be some sort of leak... Mucinex doesn't seem to do anything and sometimes it's accompanied with a deep, hacking cough, after which I spit out my phlem.

Thoughts? This shit is psyching me out.

You could be allergic to something and are having an allergic reaction. Or maybe you have asthma. If you're going to the doctor just get a bunch of tests done. They'll be able to tell you far more than us
