I've been working out for 4 months now but haven't dropped a lot of weight

I have made a ton of gains in my biceps and pecs mostly, I'm doing about 205 with my pecs but not a ton of reps and they have gotten much better looking. My biceps won't work with me like they did 7 years ago in high school and I'm progressing much slower in that. I have been taking protein powder. Anyway I can't drop weight despite barely eating and gaining strength fast. The common knowledge I have is telling me that I am replacing fat with muscle strength and mass which I find to be partly true. My core has less flab that I noted before I started but it still looks kind of bad. I'm looking for something to do about my diet to cut. I think I slowed down my metabolism pretty badly and I don't even eat 2000 calories but can't drop weight. What should I do about it? Thanks. On a side note I used to do 300lbs with my triceps and did about 225 with my biceps back in high school.

I'll have little to no money for next 4 to 6 months so I'm in a forced cut phase.
That's not a problem since I'm a skinny fat.
The problem is: what I should eat? I don't wanna live eating cheap ramen et similia
Help me please

I practise calisthenic since 4 months, 2 times a week and I'm around about 14% bf

Poorfag eating guide

>Brotien:
Eggs
Bulk chicken breast
Bulk ground pork or beef
Pure Casein and/or Whey isolate
Cottage cheese
Canned fish (in moderation due to mercury content)
Frozen fish (a bit pricier but good for variety)

>Fruit and Veg:
Frozen veg mix
frozen broccoli
frozen berries
bananas (good for preworkout or in shakes but keep in mind they have a quite a bit of sugar in them)
Seasonal fruit (avoid or stick to lower sugar fruits if cutting)
Spinach (large tub is $5 at costco)
peppers both spicy and mild
Bulk Onions (keep in cool dark place to avoid spoilage)
garlic
whatever is cheap and fresh

>Carbs:
50lb sack of beans is $20 (Make sure to soak overnight and rinse before cooking)
50lb sack or rice is $18 (good if not trying to cut)
50lb sack of rolled oats is $25 (steel cut almost double that but worth it imo due to superior taste and lower glycemic index)

>Fats & Oils:
Reuse bacon grease and beef fat. You might also be able to buy tallow/lard but I've never done this so I can't make recommendations.

Let's say that I wanna git gud at basketball quickly to impress the local chocolate hunnies.

Obviously on-court practice is best, but what can at I do at home or during bad weather to maximize footwork, agility and mad air? I assume cardio in general but specific exercises/diet/tips from experienced ballers would be appreciated.

That's a meme. Weighted clothing (wristbands, shoes etc) are used for training muscles, in specific controlled movements (like glute kick backs). If you run while weighted down it's dog shit on your joints.

Does anybody notice that skin retracts more quickly when you smoke tobacco? Not sure if fit or /tobacco/ but wondering. It helps a bit with the weight loss and appetite control which was the first reason but I notice the streaks where I don't buy smokes for whatever reason the skin also heals less. Natives onto something?

So I realized that where I moved to has some very steep inclines especially around my house. I just did some laps where I would run up a hill and walk back down it. I never had interest in working out until now, I mostly just smoke weed, eat shit food, and play games. Needless to say I am fat as fuck. Can I lose some weight doing this? Do I need to do more besides eating better? What do you think?

Former 300 pound ish dude down to 170. Now I'm a bit over 180 but waist is another inch smaller. People have stopped saying I'm "skinny" even when I need a belt for 32 inch trousers. If your skin doesn't snap back fully you'll look a little bit fatter than you are (but only on your torso when it's exposed) but the more muscle the less the gap. Gaining that muscle means I almost look ripped in the mirror now and at worst I look like someone who is fit but maybe just had christmas rather than just flabby and skinnyfat. If you just want to impress people looks have diminishing returns. For a casual lay or a real relationship, once you're past the sack of shit level of flabbiness confidence and charm will get you further than a rippling body. Being dressed well also wins out both for that and for anything else. Though I barely possess any of those things.

Eating better means make a plan, work out how it's manageable and do it. It's not really about self discipline it's just not making excuses. I found the following things helped
>plan your diet
>only buy what you actually plan on eating, don't just assume you can willpower everything. You can't and that's exhausting.
>don't keep things you can graze off around, when you develop some self control you might move to keeping them out of reach
>be realistic. I know if I open some things they're going to all go. I don't open a pack of those things unless I'm under my target, at it without any big drinking or eating events ahead or it'll fit in my budget
>when you fail get back on the horse ASAP
>when you fail look at why see; be realistic.
>it's easier to not eat than to stop for most people. Start eating later in the day. Breakfast as you perceive it is a scam and empty carbs. 2 good meals a in a 10 hour window is fine.

I actually get a lot out of cardio. Weights definitely helps you look less you're still fat if you lose 140lbs but cardio makes day to day everything easier. Making those slopes and inclines easier is great, walking up a hill with friends and not looking like a bitch is nice, athsma not being a problem when it crippled you before is lovely, being able to speed up for a train or bus without arriving a drippy mess for the sake of 15 seconds is useful. All those big muscles won't do shit for anything. Do both. Mix it up so you build confidence in your physical capabilities. It's all well and good looking good but having that confidence that you can jump that gap, pick up that thing or whatever is also really nice.

Your body is good for starting out. If you get into the diet patterns, start cardio and work on body weight or even assisted bodyweight (pull ups are actually quite hard even when you're thin, I had to work up to them, now I can do 3 sets of 9 or 10 as part of a full workout) stuff it'll help. If you do those regularly with a good programme it'll at least give you practice before you buy weights or gym membership but it should help your strength if it's virtually non existent.

Everyday after work I exercise for about two hours. I always do about an hour of calisthenics, then half an our of juggling (lol), and then some weightlifting or body weight exercises depending on the day. Then after that I just fuck around on the computer until it's time to go to bed. What kind of fun stuff do you do when you're done exercising? Should I just give my life up to working out or something?

Sorry to shit up the board with my boring problem, but I'm desperate. I ain't got no one to turn to. Thanks

You'd get better muscle definition faster if you did weight lifting. It really depends in what exactly your goal is for working out. If you're trying to just lose weight then aerobic is your guv. If you want muscles then lift weights. The goal is to achieve muscular hypertrophy and then allow your muscles to grow by having a proper diet for such a thing.

Besides jogging, working out every day is usually not something you'd ever want to aspire to do. I lift 3-4 times a week, switching up muscles. I usually rest a group for the following two days after the day that I lifted, but during those rest days I can exercise a different group of muscles. They usually become sore 8-10 hours after lifting, and then remain sore for another 32-38 hours after that. Then I exercise that muscle group again.

But to actually answer your question, I read books, read/research world news online, draw, play a few instruments and make music on my computer, build things out of wood, hike, garden, and when my depression and anxiety gets bad I'll sit in my room in the dark watching things on netflix trying to escape ceaseless thoughts about death and the meaning of existence.

OP, I have quite a few hobbies. Working out I don't ever view as a hobby, just general maintenance. Like if your car needed an oil change uh.. 3 - 4 times a week. It's five hours out of my entire week, nbd.

I paint and sculpt, record a bit of music. Garden a bit, keep fish, play PC games. Experiment with psychedelics.

IDK I have never met someone who told me their only hobby was working out, I probably would avoid that person or view them as shallow and boring. No offense.

I'd say if you're on a weightloss/fitness journey, keep up your current routine, but I find an hour or so 4 times a week if I bust my ass each sesh is more than enough to keep me in shape. My point being, develop some outside interests - even if it is 'just' movies or video games; relationships and friendships depend on common interests, don't just have *one*

How do i lose weight if i am genetically fat? I have chronic fatigue like I am way to fucking tired to work out. My body is shit. My knees hurt and crack can't bike properly. I am getting tennis elbow from laying in bed so much with my laptop and phone bent at an angle.

Healthy food. Nothing. If i eat healthy food i get headaches, anger, shaking, faint, light headed, and shitty. If I starve it's the same exact thing. I constantly want to eat full pizzas. and I do. But I cant help it. If I dont eat fat food and greasy food every day PLUS a full pizza I constantly get shaky faint light headed sick headaches etc. I tried to overdose on caffeine today. Nothing. I still ate burger king and a full pizza to stop myself from fainting

What do I do? Bullemia is the only option right? I want to be skinny. I think eating food to the point of being fat is stupid little bitch shit and something like sheltered women and fat pussies do but my body fucking DIES without fat greasy food. I have been starving myself for years stomach never shrinks, never gets any better, never get used to it. Also uppers give me anxiety so thats hard as fuck.

Same boat. My fucking spastic knees hurt all the time and doing squats to get strong and burn calories cripples me. Deadlifts and Pendlay rows tweak the fuck out of my back so bad sometimes that I can't walk anymore. Want to use the boxing bag but apparently its reserved for some kind of Crossfit faggot people and the gym owner has a fucking spergfit when I want to use the boxing bag like I just ejaculated a fortnite of rancid yellow tinged nofap into his mouth while he wasn't looking. I have no stamina for cardio, and don't like eating healthy. Fat piece of shit it is for me.

If by boxing bag you mean punching bag, if you're motivated enough you can build your own using a section of pulled up carpeting, duct tape, PVC pipe, and a small section of plywood. You attach a circular piece of plywood to the bottom of a 2-3 inch wide, 3-4 foot long PVC pipe, then wrap the carpet as tightly as possible around the pipe (like you would roll up a sleeping bag) with the underside of the carpet facing outward. After the carpeting is secure, wrap its entirety top to bottom with a couple of tightly wound layers of duct tape. From there all you have to do is hang it from something.

It's very similar in weight and density to a professional grade punching bag, and you can make it using what can ordinarily be found as scrap materials in many people's garages. Looking online, the cheapest of cheap punching bags will go for roughly $100, and a decent one will cost around $200. I don't know if this includes a rack or stand. So, it's not a huge investment by any means to just buy a bag yourself, but I personally enjoy DIY projects, and making your own is a chance to save 90%+ on costs.

I've been planning to make my own bag and stand for a while now, but haven't come across any spare carpet. I've considered buying a cheap, used rug that's large enough to use instead. I also have a lot of vinyl fabric from where I work that I plan to use to make a nice cover for my home-made punching bag so that it both looks professional and will hopefully provide a little more durability over top the duct-tape layers.


Also, fuck crossfit. Anybody who actually cares about their physical well-being will do whatever they can to avoid it. It's for vain people who only exercise for looks and will go through any means, no matter how damaging to your body, to achieve said looks. I've read that being an instructor at a crossfit gym doesn't require you to be officially certified in physical fitness like at a real gym. Supposedly you get some bullshit "crossfit certification" that is not anything like a physical fitness cert.

The lyrics to that song by proto punk rock band the Sonics about liking "the taste of straight strychnine"..... eating poison and enjoying it more than water or wine, could be about masochism, male hubris or about a strange narcissistic fantasy of being immortal.

One of the founders of Stanford University, Jane Stanford was murdered with strychnine. She said it was agonizing.

Look, I know you should just ignore haters and not flex on them. But this bothers me.

I basically lived on drugs, fruit and hard liqour as a teenager. My body was super fucked up. Towards the end, things got better, but my family then realized I got way too pro-ana and overfed me junk food. Fat again. Then I went to college. Some shit happened and one summer I nearly starved to death alone. Skinny again.

Transferred schools, major depression disorder. Fat again. Finally bought weight sets, got in "real shape" for the first time and everything was gucci until I lost my first job in the first crash of 2009. Got fat again but thanks to drug use also really fucked up in other ways physically. Time passes, and I shape up again. Then, get seriously ill. Weirdly skinny fat for a while. Then, trouble with law. Homeless. Get the most pro-ana I have ever been but thanks to previous bulks (?) somewhat muscular.

Then, mandated rehab. They pump me full of drugs and give me a chemical lobotomy and destroy my kidneys and pancreas. Fattest ever. Then, out of rehab, meet chad shrink who realizes what happened and tells me to just hit the CBD instead of all that poison pill garbage. Working out so far. Been about a year and a half..

My point is, I don't want to let this happen again. Besides keeping me life fucking stable (which is on point now), there is a lot of emotional bullshit from bullying during this period that still gets under my skin sometimes. How do I make myself impervious to this? Sometimes it works for motivation in the sense of healing the pain and destroying the haters but I'm generally pissed off at being mocked for being too skinny because I was eating road kill or too fat because I had just emerged from the wilderness and was unable to restrain myself when presented with free pizza.

I can't reasonably explain to gym rats who have led comfortable suburban lives what I've been through nor do I really judge them for not understanding, just want to be able to focus more on it and not get distracted by the bullshit when it arises.

The truth is that in age that most of us will lose our size and mass and turn into a bald wrinkly ballsack and then all that differentiates the most hideous piece of shit from the charming old gent is one is how they treat others.

In the mean time though obviously keep lifting because this shit is increasingly in the past. . Fat shaming is another topic you and I know it's both partly that person's fault/actions/judgement but also not as simple as it seems (perspective, life pressure, mental health, just thinking it's not possible) but that being fat and its consequences are punishment enough without people being needlessly sadistic not that healthy at any weight isn't bullshit or that fat people are as attractive but that's their cross, or increased mass to bear. Those people are just insecure and all they have is trying to make someone else feel less intimidating. If all they have is "they used to be faaat" then damn their lives are sad. I mean people are usually impressed by a success story. These guys must be really failing at life. Hard.

Just set goals and keep knocking them down. You know you're winning if they start bitching about your form, because that means that you're lifting bigger than them and they can't critique it any more. But even if you don't get there fuck em. They aren't worth it.

Fair enough. Will suck it up and attribute it to bullshit for now and /qq/ about it if I can't handle it later.

I want to join a local gym. I have zilcho experience with gym equipment nor what regimes I need to alternate between. Without getting a trainer what basic equipment will I encounter and what do I need to know to use them properly. I don't really know what to expect. How can a scrawny neet like me gain some muscle.

Alright, I have seen creatine at cvs for like $25-30. I used to make fruit smoothies. I may start again. I used to put flaxseed in it, but I might switch to hemp. Is there a preferred type of protein? I am recovering from long term dxm abuse and need to cleanse and rebuild my body.

Just your typical whey protein is fine. I use Optimum Nutrition brand whey and creatine off of amazon and they both do the trick. Their vanilla flavors mix great with fruit smoothies. Remember, the laws of gains are simple: more work + more quality calories = more gains.

Also as much as we love to make fun of circlejerk around here r/fitness has a pretty good list of lifting routines on their wiki, I would poke around there and try and find a routine that will work for the equipment you have at your disposal as well as something you think you can stick with. Most all of them listed have at least somewhat have been tested to work so you should do fine with whichever on you decide on. I personally enjoy and have seen a lot of progress with a free weight variant of Push-Pull-Legs but not everyone is down for a 6 day a week regimen which is totally fine. Consistent work is, in my opinion, the most important part of any program.

saving for a full steel kit, anyone have advice for training to wear 80lbs of steel?

Without firsthand experience in re enactment or whatever I know that it's not 80lbs (whatevet the PHB might say) and that the armour was designed to distribute the weight and be as mobile as possible (because you know... you had to fight in it). The mobility of plate armour is lower than a firefighter's PPE but it's lighter than a soldier's armour, of course both of them carry a lot more kit (PPE, Guns, food, insulated wire cutters, first aid kits and er... also first aid kits etc) and they do so in "live fire" situations. This is probably why in US there's at least a few marines into this.

You want to be generally fairly fit so that wearing it is a test of long term endurance. The biggest thing you can do is reduce the amount of excess weight you're carrying needlessly. Ie make sure you're quite lean. You have to wear this all day. Having some strength so that this is only a low fraction of your total exertion will help a lot but not as much as all the other stuff.

If you already hit the gym and lift then just make sure you're also doing a lot of lower intensity long duration cardio as well. If you don't then doing a bit of strength training can't hurt but you're training to carry this weight for hours at a time.

When cutting, wouldn't it make more sense to consume around maintenance calories on days working out, and then super low calories on rest days? Especially so if you workout every other day?
My logic here is that you want to keep your metabolism high, and being constantly at in a deficit, means your body will adapt.
Also, on training days you expel tons of energy, and rest days you don't. I've also read that it's better to count calories over a week as apposed to day to day.
Thoughts?

But not like the guy who just doesn't eat and skips protein entirely? From what I can see it's important you keep your protein levels up every day as the carbs rise and fall.

That said.

Your body can't "adapt" too much because thermodynamics. I don't see how you'd increase your energy burned very much by switching it up but maybe you'll build more muscle if you eat close to maintenance on exercise days. Not sure you wouldn't then just lose more if you ran a huge deficit AND didn't use your muscles the next day though. It seems like if it works one way it'd work the other and it'd cancel out surely? Or has experimentation shown it's possible to limit the effect of the latter without harming the former while maintaining an overall deficit?

When I cut I've been able to maintain or gain strength reliably when doing so but if I can make it more effective still that'd be cool. What I've done works though so I don't want to fuck with it for unproven methodology.
