Hi. 5'10 135lbs. I want to bulk up and get jacked son. I currently have two 35lb dumbells but thats it. I don't care for gyms because I can't stand being around people. What can I buy to get j4cked at home? The most cost effective route is...kettlebells? Thanks

try a low-calorie, high-protein, low-glycemic-index diet.
Eat a lot of chicken and hummus.
Try weightlifting like every other day and cardio every day.

it's important you go for the low-glycemic foods because the way they metabolize is incredible for weight-loss, even though they're carbs. It practically burns more calories than it stores.

I'd say start every day with a quality protein shake. The nutrients in those help all around the board, besides just giving you protein. Probiotics you add to the protein shake would also benefit you; they've been shown to help with weight loss, even though all they do is help your guts stay healthy. But also, maybe get some ab-cuts or something like that. I'm talking about extremely-concentrated fats/oils in pill form. If your body gets all the really rare and essential fats it needs, especially the fats that your brain needs, you'll gear your body to crave/store less fat.

And don't forget this;
muscle-soreness is essentially the same as cardio exercise in terms of calorie burning. Muscular growth/repair burns a ton of calories while you rest. Like if you got in a great weight lifting session, you'd probably burn an extra like 500 calories over the next 2 days just being stationary.

I can't. I don't keep shit around that I don't want to eat. Also it's easier to not eat if you haven't eaten yet. Eat within a 10 hour (ish) window and count on eating anything that's edible within that window. Don't keep snacks and shit around unless you know you can make them too hard to eat. For me once a pack is open it tends to go no matter how big the pack so either it's within my calorie budget or it's closed.

Work out what you're eating in advance and stick to it. Build in a little wiggle room if you're working in an office where cake is often offered but restrain yourself. Don't pick up cake at 11am, then eat lunch then have some after lunch then later. Just say "I'll have a slice at 3" and cut a small slice and properly enjoy it.

Fill up on vegetables. Processed carbs are like crack.

Sup /ana/
I'm about to have a major change in schedule that would limit my lifting days strictly only to Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
I want to maximize my 4 days so I'm looking for a few tips. Here's all the relevant info I can muster, lemme know if more is needed.

Background information
Male
5'9
150lb
24 years old

I started lifting last year in January weighing in at a laughable 120lb, after exactly year of Stronglifts and many, many, many deloads and rotisserie chickens I hit 150lb with generally low bodyfat (I never properly measured it, but I have very few soft parts)


Goals
Bulk up to around 165-175lb and maintain weight while carving out better muscle definition. There's no doubt I want to get stronger, but I'd lying if I said I wasn't after SHREDDED ZYZZ AESTHETICS.

I struggle with depression and PTSD. Working out helps me feel way better. The problem is actually getting off the couch and doing it. I usually just lay around before and after work scrolling my phone. The only thing that helps me get my ass up sometimes is putting on work out music, or reading this board or different /fit sites. I know if I could just start a schedule every day I would be feeling better in general and better about my body, but I just can't fuckin do it. Right now I'm just doing a few sets of core / cardio stuff like twice a week.

Do you have a gym membership? Go right after youre off and don't go home first to even be tempted to not do anything. If you don't have a membership, maybe go to a park right after work or asap so you can make sure you do it. Also getting a workout buddy helps a lot so you can be motivated and it will be harder to bail

after a while your body literally physically needs exercise or you get a form of depression associated with inactivity following consistent normal activity.

until then, you go to infintiy8oleg's YT channel or simply think about WHY YOU WANT IT

Do this, for at least 1 week, best for 2, and obviously if this is challenging stick with it more.

eatthismuch.com - track your food, much better than myfitnesspal or other calorie trackers, has comprehensive search engine
if you want to track, just clear the pre-made list on the website, and then search for foods and track them in the cleared list

>TDEE
http://www.fitnessfrog.com/calculators/tdee-calculator.html

find out how many calories you burn, find out your BMR (choose 0 activity)
and then figure out your calories burned either by choosing an activity level, or googling how many calories are lost per X (bodyweight, running, jump roping) for Y time and add it to your BMR.
It's easier to use the activity setting on the calc, but it does over estimate the expenditure

>bulk
+500 calories to BMR/calculated diet

Is this wrong?

(220lbs/f/20)
2187 BMR minus 2506kcals (from light exercise TDEE) = 319kcals burnt (x 7 days = 2333kcals burnt weekly, 1167kcals from 1lb)
2187 BMR minus 500kcals from diet = 1687kcals to eat, minus 319kcals burnt from light exercise = 1359kcals total (deficit from 3500kcals of 2141kcals x 7 days = 14987kcals, around 4lbs pw)

Another calc (http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/):
1828 BMR minus 2513.775kcals (light exercise maintenance kcals... you x1.3 your BMR to get to this) = 685.575kcals burnt** (x 7 days = 4799kcals burnt pw, 1299kcals over 1lbs)
1828 BMR minus 500kcals from diet = 1328kcals to consume, minus 685.575kcals burnt from light exercise = 642.425kcals (deficit from 3500kcals [1lb] of 2857.575 x 7 days = 20003kcals, around 5-6lbs)

**That seems like too much and I have a feeling it doesn't mean you burn that every day but in total, but I don't know.

What I found worked for me was working out the unmultiplied BMR of my target weight and then eating slightly under that. Then exercising as much as I could manage. As you lose weight you get fitter and so the loss stays pretty steady until you're grazing your target. I managed to average 2 pounds per week for a year plus a pound a week ramp up and ramp down of 3 months each.

Every now and then I had an off day. The next day I'd work out what made me succumb to temptation (usually that it was needlessly there) and resume my diet ASAP. I never lost more than 2 or 3 days and I suspect having a day where you run a small surplus every month or so probably does as much good as harm however I do not have any scientific facts to back that up with. Maybe I just had that big a margin that eating 1500 extra calories rapidly became insignificant.

However as a woman with presumably a target BMR below 1850 calories you have to be a bit more careful. You need to ensure you get your macro and micronutrients and if you under eat too much your body may "go into starvation mode" I imagine the magin gets narrower for a smaller person. Of course if you're 6 foot 1 and aiming to lift big then you'll be fine. But odds are you'll need to eat under 1600 calories so really think about your meal. Fill up on lots of different veg, make sure you have a good protein source, you do need a little fat (the only bad thing about fat is that it's calorie dense) but you've still got some wiggle room to actually enjoy your food.

A 500 calorie deficit per day is 1 pound per day.

When you're done you probably need to adjust your targets up but keep it up. There's no going back if you don't want to be fat again. But there's quite a lot to be said for being healthy.

Find your BMR without activity and then look up average calories per exercise and add it up

the way you should do it though, is just pick one and do it.
If you gain, eat less. If you lose more than 2lbs in a week, eat more. if nothing changes, eat slightly less

Hey /fit.,

It's a new year and there's a massive influx of new people at my gym putting clips on the smith machine and just kind of pissing me off in general. Needless to say I'm not super amped to try and workout without any tunes. But I'm in desperate need of some new ones. I haven't really paid attention to the music scene in a while and generally just listen to podcasts instead since, like, 2012.

I was hoping some of you could give me some choice playlists or tracks so I can get properly amped and tune out the world for an hour a day without hearing the same song every 10 minutes. More into the happy hardcore/witch house thing than metal, but really anything helps at the moment. Thanks guys!

Pic unrelated but I'm riding that WK afterglow.

I have 2 questions about working out.

  1. What would be the best formal for reps and sets in the gym? Currently lets takes hammer curls as an example. I would like like 3 sets of 10 reps and then up the weight and do 3 more sets. I have heard of people doing same weight sets but with reps of like 12, 10, 10, 8, 6 or I have seen people do a set with all of the same reps but the weight starts off a little lighter, then goes up with each set and then back down to the starting weight over 6-8 sets. I know it may be different for each exercise, but what do you do?

The other question is not technical. I used to workout at home solely until I found aa gym in my area (moved to a developing nation back in 2010 lol) and prior to going to the gym my gains were slow as hell. Now I have been going for only 4 weeks, my body has changed already in a big way, it's crazy. At home I found it hard to workout for more then 30-40 minutes but at the gym it gets around to 1 hour and I wanna do more, but stop myself as at my level it probably will be counter productive. So why is it so much easier to push yourself at the gym, and have you found this yourself?

See the thing is I looked through many split routines and I found 1 that works for me, however there are 2 days close together where one day it is chest, triceps and shoulders, then the next it is biceps and back. I was thinking if I should swap the back and biceps with abs and legs? Pic related, week 2, today in fact I did biceps and back.

your chest and back recover at a faster rate of 1x-2x/week.

splits and loading your body full of volume 1-2x a week is just inferior and retarded.

I know roids are a pretty drastic option given the side effects, and there's also HGH (which is apparently expensive as all hell and can have pretty bad side effects too if you aren't careful).

Anything that can get your natural testosterone levels up really.
Diet can cover that, as well as good sleep.
Things that are hard to obtain through diet are Vitamin D, Magnesium and zinc. Taking a reasonable amount supplementally can bring up your natural test levels.
Pretty much getting your vitamins/minerals is guaranteed to bring your test levels up. Supplements like Citrulline/arginine and melatonin have been shown to slightly increase HGH during sleep.

That's all I know, really.

So, around 14 years ago i dislocated my knee the first time playing hacky sack.
in 2014 I dislocated it again when i got caught between a couch and table.
2015 I got in a car wreck and dislocated the same knee again.

With enough exercise and conditioning will I ever be able to ride a skateboard again? It was my pushing leg and I haven't skated since 2001 after the first dislocation. I just want to be able to ride around.

I scooted around a few minutes ago and my knee started acting weird just from a couple pushes. This sucks. I've only got to climb one mountain. Never been water skiiing. I suck on a bike. I'm going to end up like that guy from Blade.

Best advice I can give is to maybe cut all impact related exercise and switch to something that doesn't put strain on your body in the same way like swimming.

I've got a repetitive stress injury in my first MTP joint (see picture) from smacking my foot on the ground with all the force I can muster when I ride, since I like to really haul ass. It's still not 100%, but having stayed off it has helped me tremendously.

Consider physical therapy if you are serious about getting on a board again, but I can tell you that multiple dislocations can cause some trouble.

Knees just steadily get worse until you die, however as someone else mentioned if you strengthen the muscles around the knee you will prolong them.

I've had one knee surgery and I still run and stuff, but I have to be careful. But no I can't fucking skateboard anymore really. I do mess around still on a skateboard but not seriously.

There is so much to say. I do parkour and my knees are sometimes my worst enemies. I have a bad one yeah; my landing/step out leg. Plus everything else that has hit and pierced that thing. First of all I would say to always have hope. Your positivity is in fact one of your best friends when healing. Its true. Depression hinders your cells. Nutrition: healthy oils, antioxidants, and general health. I've been suggested collagen. Habits: You start with the everyday habits. Are you walking uneven? Stand up straight, force your knee into place, stretch your back. Move. The knees can heal but they need to be active and warmed up to gather nutrients. The knee is a hard place to transport nutrients it seems. Exercise: Slow and steady. Look up videos on physical therapy and pick up some techniques that work for you. Work out your bad knee more than your good knee to bring them to an even point. working out is going to hurt at first. A little pain can go away. A lot of pain can do damage. The pain will go away if you persist. STRETCH! You can never stretch enough. Again don't push yourself. learn to properly open up your muscles. Learn to move the waste out of your muscles and joints. Massage yourself. Lacrosse balls rolling under your legs can help with that.

Honestly I stopped skating because it was fucking up my foot. If you love it though you should try your best at it. There are other sources of fun and love though.

Hear is a Athlete that I admire. He has knees of iron.

Doctor Ronda Patrick has some good advice on health and she sometimes talks about joint health.

One more thing. Every day you must tend to your injuries, It is what makes a warrior. Make that bad knee into your strong knee. Dedication and patience my friend.
