This comes from a person who fixed his lordosis/kyphosis in the course of 4 YEARS.
In the last year only I found what really helped me a lot and this was: Handstands and running.

Handstands is the best exercise but not your average "loose body" banana handstand.
Go for the gymnast straight handstand, learn to use your shoudlers and pelvis (each one influences the other when moving) to achieve the straight body posture during handstands, brace your whole body from the feet to the glutes to the wrists, brace everything all the time so you can teach your body to work as one during handstands. Also be sure to breath, to breath deep but relaxed, no need to force your breath but also no need to deprive your muscles of their precious fuel (oxygen).

This exercise alone made me stand better, it strenghtened my whole spinal chain and i feel like I have tons of metalic meat protecting me there now.

For the record I started with 5 minutes of total handstand time per day (yes 7 days a week you faget), I did them through the day, for example I woke up did a 30 second handstand, then did another 30 seconds at work and then I did the other 4 minutes until the night, some days I only did 5 and 10 second handstands because I was too tired or totally out of it but I still did them.
After 5 months my handstand skills went crazy and I no longer needed a wall for support and I also raised the time to 10 minutes per day since I could easily hold a 2 minute free handstand with ease, I achieved perfect straight line at this time too and I found out that my central upper back muscles (between the 2 scapulae) were very weak since they got sore all the time from doing STRAIGHT handstands (if I had done the banana ones they wouldn't have got sore) and those muscles were the reason for my kyphosis, after 2 more months I wachtes as my posture while walking got prettieer and straighter.

All this time I was also a lot into running, when I say running I mean serious 20 to 30 minutes running with a good pace and even some sprints in there.
The running helped too I think but the handstands were what really made my posture muscles stronger.

I’ve personally always felt like finding any kind of good working advice on losing weight is some kind of secret, probably because of being constantly hit with barrages of “ONE SECRET TO WEIGHT LOSS YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW!” ads on different sites. I want to know what the ACTUAL best method of losing weight quickly is. I know diet and exercise are obviously the key factors to looking better and really I only want to lose about 30 or so pounds (I’m currently approaching 200, about 180 or so and used to being 140, I’m 5’8” and 26 so I feel like I’ve gotta do this NOW and get into a routine otherwise I’ll be a fat slob at 30 and that’s not how I’m trying to be). I live in an apartment complex with a basic gym that has treadmills and weights/lifting contraptions so it’s pretty basic but I don’t know where to start. I have significant belly fat now and really only need to get rid of that, as I’m what you could call “skinny fat” from drinking so much beer (I quit recently, as in a week ago). I have a huge thing of protein powder and I think doing a meal replacement thing would be best for me but not totally sure, which is why I can to the ones I trust; you guys.

TL;DR I’m trying to lose about 40 pounds of belly fat and don’t have an exercise routine but have access to gear to use and need to know some tips on quickly losing said weight. Thanks y’all

You are not fat. You're probably a little squishy but in a healthy and attractive way. Your harsh deficit is why you're so tired, you're not fat.

Your TDEE is not going to ever being 1695 doing anything. That's your BMR. What you'll burn if you spend your entire day in bed. Eat at least 2K a day and start increasing that. You want to flatten your weight loss out. You can sustain another 10-15 pounds before you start making yourself ill but if you want to gain muscle don't, at your current weight you have a month or two before you need to stop losing weight, but you're going to get more tired and ill. You need to slow that shit down and ideally stop before then. Nothing is sustainable if you're not eating more than you are. I bet you also walk places, do you work, how do you get there etc?

If you want to be strength train for strength. Low reps high weights. Eat more protein. You won't get hugeswole that way. You're a woman and even if you run a small surplus this will not be an issue. Doing cardio on off days will further attenuate the gains without killing your strength. You probably want to switch a 500 calorie deficit right away and taper that after a couple of weeks. You don't need to lose a lot of weight, just a little fat and gain some muscle.

Personally I only do my core once a week but that's my one not gym day. I do my shopping, walk many miles and then do some sit ups, leg raises and stuff like that.

Lastly you are probably way too hard on yourself. If you were off by about 40% of your body weight (and thus thought you had about 4 times the fat you actually do) you do not have a very reliable self image. Be careful.

You're fine, dude. 180lbs on a cheap door frame with this pull up bar is still far from its total capacity.

I forget what they're called, but I'd had one now for about four years and I love it because it fits in every doorframe I've ever tried and it has zero installation. I use it once or twice a week to compliment my weight lifting sessions.

It's amazing to me how many people can't do a single pull up. Or friends of mine who are well within a healthy bmi but they can't do three pull ups in a set.

Another good way to build upper body strength is climbing trees. Climbing trees puts a lot of focus on each arm individually, and many different muscles. It also helps build your lower body, especially on largely branchless trunks where you climb by clamping your things around the tree.

Honestly climbing trees is one of the best, most natural work outs you could do. You won't get as muscular as with traditional weight lifting, but you will absolutely get ripped as fuck.

Ive been going to the ymca the past month or 2. Its this huge facility a block away from me, the only issue is the other members.

Every time I go into the locker room I get stared down by greasy fat ass old men in their 70s. They sit their naked and stare at me as I change. I feel super violated and its to the point where I may start a fight with one of them at some point.

Anyone else have this issue? I feel super violated, I see them go into the boys locker room for 12 year olds too. I feel like there isnt really much I can do about this except buy the upgraded locker room, but thats waste of money and i shouldnt have to deal with that.

Hey what's up!

Is Yoga really a workout? I find it very relaxing and good for releaving tension. It even raises my heartrate when I do it long enough, but of course it's not nearly as intense as cardio or other bodyweight exercises.

'd love to hear your thoughts.

There is a yoga instructor who attends my gym sometimes as a patron. Which is to say she is SERIOUS about yoga but also does strength training and cardio.

Now she obviously believes in yoga but she doesn't rely on it alone.

Lol at the deadlifting 350 line. Maybe I just follow too many deadlift pages on instagram. I myself hit 470 right before the new year (was trying to go for an even 500 but didn't get it) and I'm not a super jacked up dude.

Commercial gyms are one thing but there's still hole in the wall places you can clank around actual metal plates with the big boys at least in my area. Look for powerlifting/strongman gyms. I used to go to one for a while but it was like $80 a month. I loved it though, they had atlas stones, sleds, power racks, the whole 9.

help

i've been lurking for a while and doing my best to learn. i calculated my daily calories and protien and bought a fat jug of protien powder that i use as a daily supplement because i'm skinny and poor and want muscles. since i started eating extra protien i've had way more energy and i actually want to work out.

the problem is all i'm doing is cardio (jogging biking and hiit) and an at home core strength routine

i have access to a student gym and i want to get better defined arms. i don't know what any of the machines are or how to use them.

can you guys help or point me to some websites that break it down for absolute beginners or some other forums?

Sorry for the double post didn't see this was too busy replying to the guy who loves to stroke himself off with his superior knowledge of semantics before dropping the same tired recommendation for SS.

Protein powder will not make you leaner its just a way to supplement more protein and calories in your diet. That's like saying eating an extra chicken breast a day will make you leaner. The protein powder is good just don't use it in place of a good diet.

Honestly OP just check out the fitness FAQ here https://ceddit.com/r/fitness (I changed the website because cat planet, but everything you need to know is in the sidebar) its really fucking comprehensive, there are routine recommendations for beginners, and it should have real informative answers on the FAQ that you won't get here.

Used to be a thread posted by some guy that was a good beginners guide, like it was as good as you could get without an essay and dozens of links and he'd link it in threads like this. But it only got love from new and passing posters so it was a losing battle. It might still be somewhere between here and page 12 for all I know though.

So lets get a thread going of things you have realised throughout your years or time spent working out, that can benefit others.

I have 2 pretty good things to share, and I feel if we pull together we can get some good tips going.


The first thing I want to share relates to recovery. Everybody is different of course genetically speaking, and so we all need different periods of recovery. Muscle mass is built in recovery, the gym is where we break it down, so it is crucial. I've been lifting only a little over 2 years now, and I saw some decent gains in that time. However things have really started to ramp up when I went from working out 2-3 days in a row with a rets day, to working out every other day.

I've gone from working out specific body parts to doing a push-pull routine that focuses on full body workouts every other day. I have seen a lot quicker and more obvious gains this way. If you're on juice then sue you can get away with a bro split, but I feel for beginners especially, working out every other day is best, and to go balls to the wall on a full body workout on the days you do workout. For me like I said the push-pull method works best. NOT push pull legs, but push one day full body, then pull full body the next.


the second thing that I have realised relates to my arms. Like most people my arms grow slowly, but I feel slower than what is normal as I am fairly tall. I tried all kinds of things to see better gains on my arms, like more volume, different routines etc, nothing really worked.
Then I started to do this thing where after each set that was an arm exercise, I would raise my arms above my head for 30 seconds after each set, restricting the blood flow to the muscle. After a couple of weeks I could see an uptake in gains and then researched more into this. Now I use elastic restrictor bands on my arms when I train them, and still raise them above my head after reach set, they are growing pretty quick now!


So yeah
>post your general tips of things you have come to understand and realise about training and getting gains in this thread, in a bid to offer help to others

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
>cut
  • 500 calories to BMR/calculated diet

If you are skinny af, bulking will be your best option as losing weight just to gain it back for gaining muscle will be pointless

Once you have a base of muscle, then you can cut depending on your goals

>lifitng more
find some starting strength routine after the bodyweight one, and then ask for a powerlifting one
>getting big
I recommend working on lifting more on the main lifts like a powerlifter while at the same time, doing hypertrophy training on the accessory work
Avoid overtraining! You dont need to do 50 different chest exercises
>fokkin zyzz brah
work on the main lifts as above, but aim for different rep ranges
work on creating a shoulder: waist ratio, work on abs, dont ignore other both parts, just emphasize that build

Depends on what you already have. Also the size of the deficit. The harder you burn and the more muscle you already have the harder this shit gets. The level of exercise probably affects this. I suspect lowering your intake by x calories probably causes more muscle loss than burning x more by using your muscles but this is something experts could verify.

I eat 120-150g most days and can run a 1000cal/day deficit until I'm barely above 10% body fat and retain muscle, and even make slight gains, After that I have to reduce the deficit though I can lose a bit more weight before I start to lose muscle or just tire easily. However I'm not enormously muscular. I am hitting about 180 pounds with a 32 inch waist and I'm 6 foot 1. The girl in Octoberfest up there is marginally less muscular (if she was 6 foot 1 anyway) than me though I am nowhere near as defined. Especially just after christmas. Yeah I'm currently burning fat too.

I train for strength 3 times a week (about an hour but that includes waiting for shit and usually a toilet break because I have no intention of pissing myself and I usually hydrate pretty well pre workout) and do high intensity cardio (half an hour non stop) 3 days a week, I do some core shit (sit ups, raised leg raises etc) on my off day and walk a fair amount.

Hi pals, I need help figuring something out that my googling skills cannot. My girlfriend is an archaeologist to be. This summer she’s revisiting a dig site that she worked on last summer. Being the best boyfriend I can be, I want to be able to help her despite the distance between us(California>Italy).

The dig-wide rule over there is no knees. You have to stand or squat the whole time. I’ve looked up lower back support, long term squat support, searched similar questions hoping for some key words. But all I’ve found are weighted back support for squats and other similar products. Does anyone here squat all the time maybe? Does anyone can help?

OP you sound like a drug addict and also are not straightfoward on what you really want.
Do you want us to give you exercises for your girlfriend to make her squatting ability better?

How often do you tell her you have a bone to examine?

In the middle of a cycle of LGD-4033 right now and wanted to give my thoughts on it.

LGD-4033 is a selective androgenic receptor modulator, or SARM, which is a long way of saying it sensitizes the body to its own natural forms of testosterone.

Bought 1g of powder online and have been dosing 10mg daily. The powder is only somewhat miscible in water, but dissolves quite easily in the presence of lipids so I have been using whole milk.

After three weeks, I can say that overall I have had a somewhat increased healing rate; bruises and injuries, especially muscle strain, seems to heal quite a bit faster than expected. Not scientific at all (although clinical studies have been done) but I am experiencing increased anabolism.

In addition, I have experienced a boost in mood and have generally more energy. Not significantly more, but noticable. Furthermore, no shrinking of testes 3 weeks into cycle. I will monitor this with interest to ascertain whether clomid is necessary for PCT, because forums seem split on how suppressive LGD-4033 really is.

Current thoughts: definitely worth the purchase

Yes, get back to us at the end and do a comparison pic. I'm glad you're making progress, but the guy is right. I'm just glad you didn't include your benis in the bic lmao. Sorry if I'm being rude, I was just trying to be light-hearted about it.

tl;dr: My gym coach/instructor won't help me with the form of Starting Strength exercises. I'll be in this gym only for one month, will I be losing time for doing only what he thinks is the best for me?

He's really into machine exercises mostly, some dumbells for arms and shoulders. I want to commit to SS as I'm skinny af and need a proper introduction into the world of using-your-body-in-a-proper-manner.

If I follow whatever he says to me, even if for only 1 or 1 + 1/2 month, will that hurt my progress if only after this I start SS? I'll change gym because I'll go back to the city where I work and there continue this journey. When talking to the coach of the next gym, I'll try to convice him using better methods.

TL;DR
Machines are useless, unless you are rehabilitating and need assistance with stabilizing a load. Use Barbells, Dumbells, Kettlebells,Clubs and Maces. Even Calisthenics. Just not machines. Your Instructor sounds like he doesn't know what he is doing NOR like he is meeting your specific needs. Ill list a few good sources at the very bottom of post.

Rant:
Machine exercises are virtually useless. There are 3 axis of movement. X, Y and Z. This is going to get a little rambly, and simplified at times, but please bear with me.

X is the direction you wish to work to move a load or exert force. Y and Z are the forces you have to fight to stabilize the load you wish to move. In every real world application of strength, you are resisting Y and/or Z with your stabilizers, when you are both moving and static, along the X plane.

Machines hold you responsible for X work only. They completely eliminate Y and Z stabilization and also distort the load you are bearing through:

1) Pulley Systems
2) Neglecting Stabilizers

This means, that 100lb load will feel more like an 80lb-90lb load and will not prepare you to deal with a real 100lb load as you will not build stabilizer strength.

Barbells let you work against X and Z axis, but since you are anchored at 2 points along the Y axis, it is negated and you get some, but not all stabilization work. This is still good real-world work, since you will sometimes have 2 anchor points when utilizing strength outside of your conditioning.

Lastly, single anchor weights (sometimes can be used as dual anchor weights, as in 2 handed Mace or Kettle work) will give you the best bang for your buck. They not only allow you to work freely along the X,Y and Z planes, but can also be used for rotational work and uneven load work.

eg. when you arm curl a barbell your obliques don't have to work to keep your posture. When you arm curl a single dumbell (no dual wield) your obliques and other core stabilizers have to work to keep your spine aligned while you curl, since your shoulders will be pulled towards whichever side you are holding the bell, as well as the bell pulling the same side's shoulder forward, which you will resist with your rotational stabilizers. A barbell will pull both shoulders forward, but you miss out on fighting rotation and lean.

If you want real strength avoid machines at all costs.

Calisthenics (bodyweight) are good. Engage your WHOLE body when doing them.

Barbells also good. only having 1 direction to stabilize can let you lift heavier
weights while still getting in some stabilization good work.

Ketllebells, Dumbells, Clubs and Maces are best. They may not feel as rewarding because the weights are much lower, but the quality of work that you get done is superb. Especially useful if your strength goals are partially motivated by self-defense training.

i agree with everything you said except for recommending kettlebells and maces to a beginner. i think one should at least have a moderate foundation with barbells and dumbbells before progressing to the more awkward shapes to reduce chance of injury

Machines are useless, do SS and fire your coach.

I also do online coaching ;)
