So, I work a 9 - 5 with a lot of dead time and, I'm googling a lot on ways to use that dead time for fitness.

Is there some routine I could do for like 15m, to work mobility/abs maybe?

Like, I'm doing capoeira and i like the idea of being mobile, and ofcourse working out so I'm looking for ways to maximize whatever time i got extra.

Also...so I algo go to the gym, unfortunately I currently can't afford an instructor and I pretty much improvise my workout plans on previous experiences.

Last one had me go through supersets of muscle groups like...

Chest + triceps, back + biceps, legs + shoulders.
Do you think this is ok for a dude that is inbetween a beginner and an intermediate?
Also, any solid reference for stuff like this...?

If you already train capoeira and you only have 15 minutes and you want to do something that improves core and mobility look at any static / isometric workout that emphasizes mobility.

Yo that one chick broke the land speed record with 183.9 mph a few months ago.
Denise Mueller Korenek. What's super insane is she is 45 years old. Like... goddamn.

She can get it, for someone 14 years older than me, she looks hella good. I bet her thighs could literally snap your spine in half.

here I am reducing the fastest cyclist on earth to an observation about her looks and whether or not I'd do her despite me never accomplishing something a quarter as insane as she did. Men are trash lol but at least I'm self-aware trash

That feel when you work super hard and lose 40 lbs but the only person who notices, compliments, and encourages you is the person you're dating.

Friends, co-workers, family? Radio silence.

I know weight loss and fitness is supposed to be for you and no one else, but I'm feeling discouraged. Maybe I was just so fat that 40 lbs isn't a big change in my general size and shape IDK. I was feeling attractive again but not so much now.

Got another 40lbs to go. Trying to stay positive but this is hard.

Stuff like green veg is carbs and you should absolutely eat a little. They aren't high calories though, it's not like crisps, or cakes or refined carbs. Or even nuts. A couple of portions of green veg, maybe some carrot, the odd onion or cabbage, etc has 2 significant benefits and you only need a couple of hundred calories worth per day.

>micronutrients
>fibre
That second one though. If you're lifting weights a lot and not eating veg you're going to strain a lot. This is how you get piles. Or rather it's how I get piles.

>why you would willing consume carbs
Because treating piles is miserable but piles are worse. Licking a wax bullet, shoving it up your arse and then sitting on a wadge of tissues to catch the molten shitwax is better than piles. But a portion of cabbage, brocolli peas and carrots maybe the odd mushroom with your meal is preferable to either option.

Eat less than you burn. Unless you're epileptic keto doesn't have any super powers beyond avoiding empty refined carbs and THOSE are the real issue.

It's winter now and this is the time of year I tend to get less exercise and put on some weight. Any good recommendations on healthy meals? Doesn't have to be vegan or anything but I'd really like to lower my body fat % before summer hits. I always tend to forget about my health in the winter and when t-shirt weather hits i'm reminded of my lack in healthy eating habits. I want to change and I want to lose weight. pic related af.

11% here. I eat one salad almost every day, make sure you change up which greens and meat you use so you don't get tired of it as well as sunflower seeds or peanuts for something extra. If you really want to keep your body fat low just cut out carbs almost completely from your diet

I don't want to go keto and cut out carbs completely but lately ive been cutting bread out of my diet as much as possible, I know veggies contain carbs and obviously rice/quinoa which I think I would have a tough time cutting out completely but it's not impossible.

Just thought this would be fun to share the worst diet's / diet and exercise advice that we have ever heard. I'll start..

I saw an article that was posted on Bodybuilding.com about how to eat healthy and fuel your muscle growth if you are on a budget. This article advocated eating only three items, top ramen, peanut butter and lentils. WTF... but most inexplicably it said for the best results not to wash the lentils. I was speechless..

About 2 years ago I underwent an extensive surgery which left me quite debilitated (bedridden for months, then small daily rehab) and unable to be active for the next year. Gradually, I have been regaining my strength and am currently working towards being as active as I once was. During the course of the rehab, my weight ballooned up from 190lbs to a maximum of 260lbs. With the recent increase in activity I've dropped down to my current weight of 240lbs, but my final goal is to get back to the 200 mark. I've noticed some stretch marks that appeared near my lower stomach, extending a few inches surrounding my navel area. Is there any way to reduce their appearance? Or something I could do to while I'm losing weight to help reduce the appearance?

Not sure if it matters but I'm currently 26 years old and 6'1"

Vitamin A. Vitamin A is referred to as a retinoid. ...

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.

Just about everything >>95952 said is pretty on the money. Also as someone who had a pretty bad habit of munching hard intermittent fasting really helped quell that for me. Mentally I found it easier to resist snacking when I set a time when I would stop eating entirely. I think it helped those munchie ideations from creeping into my thought process when I was “done” eating for the night. Yeah the first week or two is a little rough but if you stick it out it definitely gets easier. It also helped me realize when I just felt a little “peckish” and when I was really legitimately hungry

I would say the basics. Exercise parts you want to have be better of in terms of their size and change your diet. There's not much to it. It's a relatively basic scenario. lol You might ask yourself a question or two. "Is discomfort all the time actually that reasonable?" And for that question I would say I suppose not. Unless you're striving for the limits of physical existence I wouldn't bother being uncomfortable all the time. You could try yourself with diet challenges, weight training, life philosophy stuff, and other habits but if you have too much that's gonna be beyond difficult. I wouldn't suggest it. Try a more handle-able approach. See what happens there. It's certainly more agreeable. I would think it's day and night to the other path. So run with that and notice the great state of your life. Not that hard. lol What do others think on this? What do you have to say about any topics that have been brought up? Based.

This is how I got fit.

Wake up 1hr before I used to.
Purchase this freestanding device: Stamina 1690 Power Tower Free Standing Pull Up Bar https://youtu.be/l16LGA1Ucbw
Now, at first I could not even hang off the bar. I just spent about a month everyday trying to hang off it until I could simply hang for about half minute.
Doing chin ups was easiest, so I started with that. About another month or so of just hanging, trying to pull myself up and failing.
I then did rows with the high dip bars, everyday.
So after doing these rows, one day I just walked up to the chin up bar, and tried to fail as I usually did, but magically I pulled myself all the way to the top of the bar.
I repeated this and eventually I could do about 3 or 4 without a break. Every time I lowered myself down as slow and as controlled as possible. The negatives really build 'gains' when trying to do a single chin up. Then I switched to pullups.
Same thing here, cannot for the life of me do one pullup but I kept watching youtube vids on proper pullup form, and again one day, after doing many, many chin ups, and many attempts at pulling myself in pullup position, I could do one pull up.

I repeated this every 2 days or so. Do some chin ups, the next day do one pullup, if I couldn't pull myself all the way up I'd just hang there in flex mode for as long as possible, or lower myself down as slow as possible.

Eventually I got to doing 12 pullups, and 25 chin ups no problem. I switched to dips with the dip bar and could do about 30 of those. Then I started doing pushups with the lower bars and could do 30 of those after a while. At this point I started looking for calisthetics people, stumbled upon this Ukraine guy and tried his routine https://youtu.be/U_I9LcWNrBg and I also tried his diet, just eating meat, small amount of veg, small amount of rice.
The hanging leg lifts he does hurt like fuck for the first few weeks. Then you get used to that stomach pain. The extra weight I had fell off (I weighed 250lbs when I started, the max limit for the pull up bar). The more weight I lost the easier these became where I could start doing planche positions while doing pull ups. Then I could do pull up, switch grip and push up above the bar. Then I became beast mode.

This was all accomplished just 1hr before I had to do my regular things in life. If I put it off, I noticed as the day went on, I was less likely to do any pullups. Anyway good luck anons

jseriously that things is ridiculous its like two bars of metal and I would call it a death trap, I mean this thing proves that gravity is not real because the surface tension would flip that thing over if I tried to do a sit up or a flying tackle on it

I have been sooo close to a six pack like three times but have always let circumstances get out of control and ended up in a bad place.
I'm now 260 lbs and want to be at least 220 lbs to achieve this (i am a big guy)

OK so
beyond simple calorie reduction, cardio, and of course, copious amounts of lifting, what else can I do?

Two things come in mind as of particular interest, the first being carb cycling, the second being psychological tactics that I can use to motivate myself when I feel like it's not achievable.

Both options would lead to gains as far as I know. I don't know that there's any differentiation between major muscle gains from either of these ways. Maybe somebody else has knowledge in this area. I think rest days matter but I don't know the full nature of how they're of necessity for people when it comes down to it entirely. I've heard of 7-days a week gym goers who are in shape and people who only go 3 days who are in shape so it's pretty unclear there to me. It could be any and all exercises lead to significant gains. The scenario is not one I really would say I have a full understanding of, I don't know the complete picture on how all this stuff is in place. lol I'm not just gonna put out swaths of health advice. People have been good and will be doing good. This is in terms of what I say to people because I don't want to express things excessively in this area and get people to a place where they have bad information.

Wonder if any of you meatheads on here can answer some questions I have about running.

I see a lot of training programs saying that they keep weekly mileage under 25. Why? I'm around 20-22 miles at 5days/week and feel like I could (and plan to) do more without much of a problem.

While distance/endurance running seems surmountable, I'm having trouble increasing speed. Any tips aside from fartleks? The problem I have with fartleks is I have one speed: slow. I don't have much trouble running for 50 to 60 minutes, but it is always the same speed. I need those /ana/reobic

Do long distance runners normally run without underwear? I've seen people talk about having trouble with chafing until they bought shorts with netting. It doesn't seem like this would be needed unless they're going commando. I had trouble with my inner thighs chafing when I was just wearing mesh (swishy) shorts and cotton boxer briefs, but haven't had any trouble wtih chafing since I bought more running focused shorts and still wearing the same underwear.

I've been trying to prepare for outside running during the winter. I see a big focus on shirts that wick moisture away. Normally, I wear cotton tshirts and after my runs I'm drenched. I understand I won't sweat as much on a cold, but even on a 70 degree day my chest and back are soaked through and with wick material that moisture is has to go somewhere. My shorts are supposedly fast drying and wicking, but they're always soaked through too (or is it because of my cotton underwear?). So what's the point of fast-drying wicking material on cold days if you still end up drenched in sweat?

On the bottom half of my body during winter runs, I've read that at most you need to wear tights underneath your running shorts. So am I supposed to go commando? Because as I've said above my underwear are drenched in sweat when I get done running.

On a completely subjective note, how bad is it to run in cold air? I've heard it is like daggers, from people who have never been stabbed, but yea, is it something that I'll be able to get used to in a week or two or three?

I've heard that REAL running shoes make a big difference. I'm barely an athlete, I want running to be a habit for me, but I'm never gonna be able to compete other than against myself. Do I need a $200 running shoe?

How hard is it to switch running shoes? I have a pair of Adidas that I've run in since the beginning of this summer. At the same I bought those (cause buy 1 get 1 half off, bullshit) I bought a pair of new balance that I've only run in a couple of times recently on shorter runs.

Finally, how many miles do you think I have left on my shoes? pic related

Something else that helped me was to try and run like you're running on eggshells. Ie. try to keep your foot strike as soft as possible. For me, if I'm hearing my foot strike the ground I'm probably letting my foot fall to the ground too hard.

Right now I'm not able to justify spending $100 to $200 on a pair of shoes. Both pairs of my shoes (~$70 each) are very comfortable and work well for my current routine/mileage. I'll keep it in mind and someday, maybe. Tbh, right now I still think I'm just a novice, 3 less oz. on my feet aren't gonna do more for me than improving my form, quality miles and practice over time.

Running isn't supposed to hurt. After a run: exhausted, yea. In pain, no.

I only bring it up because you asked in OP. All of my shoes before have been very comfortable, I don't think it's necessarily just a weight thing either. A proper fit really can help encourage proper impact. Idk all the shoe jargon behind it but there's an upper tier of shoe beyond just being comfortable and working, in my experience. I can't go back to a shoe that just works anymore.
