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?

i would need to get some weights or find something heavy to lift. I'm already adept in lifting my Xbox controller so I will need to find something a little heavier. Lol

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.

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.

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.

It sounds like a case of arseholes gonna shit honestly. This is more of a /qq/ issue and the answer is that some people are just turds. Big strong guys who can't even say it to your face. If they have no empathy or understanding for anyone then they're always going to be hideous. 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.

saving for a full steel kit, anyone have advice for training to wear 80lbs of steel?
Sophie Nommerbanks - Mon, 17 Jun 2019 06:59:00 EST WalKWnZ4 No.95509 Reply
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.

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.

I'm a 19 year old man in charge of looking after my 11 year old sister on weekdays after her school ends. She's just got into gymnastics and is trying to prove that she's stronger than me, so she challenged me to a play fight which I accepted on the condition that it would be in good fun with no hitting.

I'm 6'1, 115lbs and she's 5'0 75lbs or something like that. The pic attached is what we look like.

So I thought I was stronger and would win, but she ended up wrapping her thighs around my neck and squeezing hard. I submitted but she said she wouldn't let go until I said that "I was her b*tch". I said it, then after she let go I lost my cool and punched her in the face. This was stupid and purely out of bruised ego, I regret doing it.

So we both fall to the floor, she wraps her thighs around my waist this time and it's 10 times more painful. I submit and this time she says she won't let go until I say that "the only girl I can get is an ugly retard" referring to my enthusiastic girlfriend. I reluctantly say this as the pain is unreal, but instead of letting go she just squeezes harder then cups my mouth with her hand. I get a panic attack and wet myself. I can't contract my body up and down anymore in order to breathe and pass out.

I went to the hospital later and had 3 broken ribs and 1 cracked rib. My parents blamed me as I punched her first and agreed to fight her. Fair enough, but I think she should get some of the blame too. What she did was sadistic and she still hasn't shown any remorse, she's still trying to prove she's better than me. I can't even look her in the eye anymore.
I hate feeling this weak, having anorexia has literally made me subhuman. Its made my bones brittle, its made me weaker than a little girl. I just want to be normal.

What should I do when she tries to boss me around? There's like a power dynamic between us now, how do I stand up for myself? Also, does she look stronger than me? I don't think she does.

One pizza is about 2000 calories OP.
That's my entire daily allowance if I want to maintain weight.
I literally had to wait 3 months to eat another pizza last time I was on a cut, because even cheating only once with a pizza would fuck up an entire week's progress.
Also skinny guys always overestimate how much they (can) eat.

Don't compare yourself to others, especially not to people with completely different metabolisms. You play the hand you've been dealt.

The calorie game can be won with cruciferous vegetables. You have to eat like 30 pounds of lettuce to get 2,500 calories. Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts are foods that cannot make you fat. I always keep cabbage in the fridge because it's cheap and I can make a fuckload of it really fast.

Whole carbohydrates tend to have less calories and a lower glycemic index than their processed counterparts. So an apple will have %33-%50 the calories of a bran muffin. Table sugar actually has a lower glycemic index than white, or even whole wheat bread. Carrots are good, but turning them into juice raises the glycemic index.

Glycemic index is important because it represents how quickly and by how much a food will change your blood sugar. Flooding your body with sugar can trigger insulin production, sugar molecules sticking to your proteins and fucking everything up.

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.

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

nigga you do more sets and reps in one day than I do in whole week, why not use some weight? I can't even imagine doing deadlifts after fronts
