Hey /a n a/ I'm 5'9 135lbs and wanna pack on weight and muscle.

Usually no matter how much I eat I can't seem to pack on any pounds, I don't do much cardio besides a little bit of jogging and I do lots of push ups, pull ups etc.

What am I doing wrong? I've been doing this since new years.

Is there some type of website or app I can go to that helps with food? Some suggested I try things like blue apron or some subscription app and pick meals with the highest cals and protein intakes

That's not bad. If memory serves correctly, the average large egg has 6-7g of protein (some of the highest quality protein you can find) and 70-80 calories? A slice of toast roughly the same calories minus the protein, plus fiber. So say you eat an egg sandwich of three large eggs and two pieces of toast, that's at most 350 calories plus roughly 25 grams of protein, plus the cream and orange juice doesn't add too much. That's not a large breakfast by any means, probably not much for gaining weight, but it's a step in the right direction.

Ideally I'd want roughly twice that amount of calories, and almost double the protein (I eat 1 gram of protein per lb of body weight for weight lifting). I think the average bagel usually consists at least 300 calories. You could switch that for bread and have a bagel and egg sandwich, plus adding an ounce or two of sliced cheese will give you a significant calorie and protein boon. Supplement that with a handful of nuts and you've got a small time builders breakfast.

Well I'm trying to make it 6 small meals and a healthy snack in between. Like a protein shake or some protein bar.

Oh and it's grain bread, the bread is more for the health purpose.

When you lose a whole bunch of weight, your skin tightens around your muscles, like say in your chest, changing the entire structure. But here's the weird part. As you lose weight, if you suddenly are able to move and articulate parts of your chest that you weren't before, what does that means?

Not exactly sure what you're talking about but I would guess that you have probably developed some muscle as well as losing some fat. Very possible especially when you're relatively new to working out, as in your first year or so, it's where the term "beginner gains" comes from. You will eventually hit your limit on what you can gain from being in a caloric deficit, but for the time being I would say keep doing what you're doing.

The actual fitness history is really complicated because it gets interrupted by things like prison and homelessness. I was in really good shape towards the end of college and then gained again after office work, then got in shape again, then went homeless and got jacked temporarily strangely, then got fat again in rehab. And here we are! Yay. I have a home weight set but need more plates probably will get some more off of CL, ebay or amazon, whichever is cheapest and conveient

Hey /ana/ (when did it change from /fit/?) anywho, I'm starting this year on the right foot. I'm not drinking for a month, I've started doing yoga every day, and I'm trying to eat better and keep my finances in check.

I'm a full-time line cook, about 5'11" and probably 130-150 lbs, and i've never really worked out besides walking every where, or riding my bike. The yoga has been great, I'm on day 4 of a 30 day yoga challenge and I certainly plan on continuing my practice after the 30 days.

I come to you today as a total newbie to the workout life. I just looked around on the internet for a beginner bodyweight program that i can do at home until I can get enough money together for a weight set. Here's the routine:

Three Circuits of:
>20 squats
>10 push-ups
>20 lunges
>10 dumbbell rows (using a jug filled with sand or something)
>15 second plank
>30 jumping jacks

I think that's a pretty good start for me, not knowing much about working out. So I guess my questions are this:

>What are things that I should include in my diet? Keep in mind that I don't make too much to buy a lot of groceries. I do have protein powder however.

>Is yoga a good way to warm up before working out?

>Does anyone have a particular weight set they'd recommend that I can get on the cheap?

And basically any other general tips for a newbie who's goal is to transition from a stick with a beer gut, to having a sort of Christian Bale body (best analogy I could come up with)

Thanks for any advice, links, videos, tips, tricks, etc!

I want to do somthing a bit different
Full body heavy weight workouts burn me out too much
I like pplxppl now
But I'm bored of just doing straight sets of like 3x5 3x12

But then when I've tried other programs what mess about with different rep ranges I sort of lose strength (but have looked more cut)

i was half thinkin ofgoing to some big bodybuilding gym close to me for a change and start using machines but i wouldn't know what to do in terms of making it all consistency and making sure I don't burn out due to doing too much

I was also looking st the PHUL workout doesn't seem bad but I feel like there are better programs out there

What should I do ?

Btw my stats are
Bw 80kg
When I get back to my 5 rep Max's this is what I end up getting

Bench 85kg 90kg with a spot(must be scared to drop it even on the rack ha)
Deadlift have been up to 160
Squat 115kg
Ohp 60kg
Rows 90kg

Yeh maybe you could say I should go back on the Texas method or somthing but that's just so fuckingg boring.
And that's my main problem at the min I want to aesthetically look good but in just sort of getting bored to death of it all

Sup /ana/

So I'm in average shape, most of my exercise is just doing long runs to blow off steam and help my mental health, pushups from time to time. I noticed my back is lacking in muscle, upper and lower.

Do you guys have any suggestions for getting a normal healthy back without a complicated routine? I do have a gym membership. I'm looking at exercises on youtube and google but theres so many..it's a little overwhelming. I'd feel a little more confident in giving them a shot if somebody here is willing to just recommend a few good starter exercises for a well rounded back.

I did starting strength about a year ago and that was going well. Should I just jump back into doing that?

Pull up
Pendlay row & 45° bent over row
Overhead press (for upper back)

Don't forget your lats and your shoulders are also part of your back and will contribute to making it look bigger. Especially your upper back shoulder area is prone to getting bumpy.

Thanks guys. Gonna hit the gym today and do Deadlifts, pendlay rows, and maybe squats and overhead press.

I honestly don't know if I could do a pull-up right now.

sounds like starting strength alright. jk

i reread the thread and i find the phrasing )well rounded back( hilarious
how long did you do the SS routine for and how far did you get? thanks to muscle memory it can be very easy to get back to a good portion of previous functional strength
best of luck to you and keep at it!

Okay, so I need a little bit of guidance.
I have a horrible gut. And I'm so fucking ashamed of my body that I'm having struggles just being in public and shit, anxiety and weird body issues and the whole shabang. I used to be really fat, then I got in OK shape, and now I've noticed after 2 years of crippling depression I'm on the fast lane to right back where I started.

All in all, I just wanna get in good enough shape so I can remove my t-shirt when I'm with a girl and not feel so shit it literally kills my sex and self-esteem. I've been seeing a private trainer for about 5 sessions now, and we're doing a full body workout for strength training, but the only cardio I do is running 15-20 minutes beforehand to warm up.

I just thought I'd ask what I can expect till summer, if anyone here think I'll be able to go to the beach or something without feeling horrible, if I should start dieting, if I should start to do more cardio or whatever, just general tips.

I'll post a picture I took last week just to show you guys where I'm at, and I'll also most what I've been doing this last weeks. It's written in Norwegian mostly, but what muscle group I'm practicing is in English at least. Reps is repetitions and Vekt is the weight of the weights, lol.

I'd really appreciate some feedback, because I hear so much crazy shit and I'm kinda embarrassed talking about to my coach weirdly enough, I don't wanna be seen as incredibly vain even tho I am. Still feeling exhausted after last session, and I kinda think what's the point, but I think it might be my bipolar hitting me + bad sleep. Just feel horrible.

Thanks for any help guys.

Should probably mention that I work out 2 days a week, and I can't really work out strength more than that since I'm literally jello in my whole body for the next two days. But I wanna fit in one day of cardio on Sundays when I'm getting into it. Probably after I've at least worked out one month and my muscles don't ache as much as now that I'm a newb.

Lol relax nigga it aint even that bad.

Start by keeping track of all your calories coming in (there's some good apps). That way, whatever you decide to do won't leave you unsure about your diet and have you gaining unwanted weight again.

>>I don't wanna be seen as incredibly vain even tho I am
My man. What's so vain about not wanting to look like shit? What's so vain about asking for help to accomplish your goals in an efficient way? Talk to your coach ffs. That's what you pay him for, no?

Ive met more than one who do so. I couldnt be bothered, its a sport/exercise to me, not commuting. I could save about $130 a month doing it over bussing, but I like to be driven places (as a passenger on the bus). During winter I dont want to have to buy another bike to deal with the snow and ice, and during summer I couldnt stand sweating on my commute to work more than I already do.

I used to be a fatass and I'm still in the process of losing weight. I want to get rid of everything that I can safely so my skin can shrink up as much as possible. How low can my calorie consumption go without incurring lasting health issues?

Here's the situation: Right now I'm a BMI of 27at 191 lbs. at last weigh-in and 5'11" of height. FitnessFrog says my BMR is 1994 and my TDEE is 2393, I count 1700 calories a day as I thought men could not go any lower than 1600 without crashing their metabolism or whatever. That's probably bro science though. I also cheat all day once a week (Sundays) but that has become a 24-hour junk food binge and I really can't give it up. Pizza is how I cope and that's how I got into this predicament in the first place. I think it would be easier to just fast all day on some other day of the week but once again, I think that might shithouse my body.

I've been losing about a pound a week for the past 5 months but now I'm starting to see my results peter out and that's a problem, plus I had to drop weightlifting out of my routine because I kept hurting myself no matter how much I focused on my form. Now I just do dynamic stretches and cardio.

tl;dr how little can I eat 6 days of the week without fucking myself up?

tbh OP, you can easily go on a 1.2k deficit, once you drop to 160lbs reduce your deficit to 800 calories a day. what has worked for me is to treat eating with mindfulness. TAKE YOUR TIME WHEN EATING! Treat it like a ritual, be grateful. Even when you just reach into your fridge for a snack, be mindful of it. Put it on a plate and eat it at the kitchen table. DONT EVER EAT ANYWHERE NOT DEDICATED TO EATING! Also, dont restrict your food choices!! only thing that should be off limits is sugar!
also, find a way of exercise you love. be it resistance training, cycling, hiking, dancing, swimming, climbing, anything... we are not meant to be sedentary. 4 years ago i was a neckbeard overweight by 100 pounds, now im a ripped dancer and calisthenics dude, and not once have i missed my sedentary lifestyle.

I believe in you bruv! Greatness awaits!!

The kind of strength that makes heavy/awkward things lighter and can give me the ability to overpower others. End goal is a dominating physical presence but also the ability to use it. I'd say my goal is to be 170 pounds.

I do not do bench press or squats, due to ligament damage in shoulders/knees. I do not use machines, only dumbbells and an EZ Curl bar. I have access to pull up/dip station, incline bench, balance board and bow flex. I usually cycle 10-16 miles a week and my job requires me to be on my feet/carrying things all shift.

Currently :
5'8/176cm and 11st3/158lbs/71kg
5 wide pull ups, 7 raised legs push ups, 30+ raised leg crunches, 8 dips
15kg/33lbs dumbbells for arms, shoulders, chest or 7.5kg/16.5lbs for weaker excercises


My main "idea" is to try pursue a mix of weight training and calisthenics. Get really good at pull ups, dips, push ups, incline crunches. Mix it in with some standard issue dumbbell workouts and niche workouts such as grip training, bow training and working all the little muscles/forearms. Mix it in with some MMA/Climbing for overall functionality.

I figure as long as I eat enough calories to not be losing weight, I could get the bulk on and then work on getting my strength to catch up with it once I've hit my target.

>Would a routine like this actually produce practical results?

Is it better to be able to powerlift a huge weight or use 30kg dumbbells, compared to the say, crushing 30 pull ups and 40 push ups?

Who would have an easier time lifting heavy boxes all day or overpowering someone in a fight by grabbing their arms? I understand the subjectivity of "goals" but when it comes to applying these types of strength, is there any routines which come out on top?

sounds pgood
maybe do some basic gymnastics stuff for abs and arms (if your shoulder allows it), do lots of weighted carries and train your fucking neck

also dont enthusiastically focus on resistance training, MMA/Climbing should probably amount to 80% of your training.

Also dont do "bulks", aim for one, max two pounds of weight gain per month. Progressing as a natty is slow asf but just being patient WILL be worth it!

I only hit the gym a couple times a month but want to get jacked. My old man knows alot about fitness and is hella jacked and gave me this routine today.

Some might argue that i need to be doing less reps/heavier sets but honestly im weak af right now and I think this will help me build strength before I can adjust to to something better.

Currently 25 years old 5 11 and 175 lb skinny fat. Looking to start this routine tomorrow.

Shit that looks dope. One of the hippies at work is always telling me to try a sweat lodge. This looks way better.

My local gym does a pay as you go entry for sauna n steam room. Just got out now after a workout at home. Feels dope, considering a monthly pass to go daily.

We have sauna at my health club. Comes with the package. About 10'x12' teak room with constant 170F temps. Has the little wooden bucket and ladle to sauce water over the electric heater/coals. Do 10min after my workout 6 days a week. I'd go in longer but I either don't have the time to do multiple 10min sessions, and 10min at a time is about all you can take at 170F.
