Is that some OC?
I got a huge folder for just such an occasion. Unfortunately it's kind of late. I'd be surprised if other anons didnt have some though.
Not sure if welcome here.
Week one, 103lbs. (Lost 4 pounds already)
Increasing protien and working on strength training in lower body (obviously, the ass mostly, already have decent calves from walking across town daily). Attempting to tone and slim belly.
"toning" is a buzzword without any real meaning, you have to put on muscle and decrease fat to look aesthetic, also toning is often associated with doing shitloads of reps in a belief that they somehow "tone" the muscle without growing it.
And about slimming that belly... you can't reduce fat from a specific spot, so the only way to do it is to decrease BF in general
Oh. Thank you for elaborating. I had no idea. I'm at the point where I'm unsure what to eat. I'd like to lose belly weight, but any calorie restrictions (from what I've been told) would greatly inhibit any kind of muscle growth. I've also heard that cardio based workouts are slimming but limit your ability to put on or keep muscle as you said. I'm seeing a handful of different approaches to the same issues and rather unsure how I should go about my goals.
/fit/ is generally in favour of fitness through strength, but of course it depends on your goals. You really can't go wrong with a strength training program as long as you do your homework and don't hurt yourself. Assuming that you do this, you really have two choices. Option one is a body recomposition, where you eat at maintenance calories and gradually swap muscle for fat. Option two to is to eat over maintenance and gain both muscle and (a bit of) fat, then cut the fat back down after the fact. Up to you.
The other poster's point is that muscles are bigger or smaller (not more or less "toned," whatever that is -- mostly a word magazines use to sell copy), and you have more body fat or less. How you look depends mostly on those two things. When people say that they want to slim a particular part, it's often because they think that spot reduction works (the only way to spot reduce is surgery, and that's temporary.)
If you don't know what to do, then learn to lift heavy. You won't get big and mannish, you'll just look and feel awesome. Here's one possible plan, but of course there are other ways to do this:
Eat a bit above maintenance, heavy on protein and vegetables. Common supplements include multivitamins, vit D3, creatine, and protein isolate (the first two will improve general health and mood, the latter two will accelerate muscle growth.) Eating lots of protein will promote muscle growth and suppress your appetite for junk outside of meals.
Do 12 weeks of Stronglifts 5x5. Get a friend or trainer to show you proper form, or look on Youtube for advice and go slow until you understand the movements. There's some excellent stuff out there. Alan Thrall's videos are top notch.
Switch over to Ice Cream Fitness 5x5 after 12 weeks or whenever. It's basically Stronglifts with a bunch of accessory exercises so you don't end up with strong legs and weak arms.
Find your way from there.
Stick with this for a year or three = victory.
Thank you so much. That helps a lot and is greatly appreciated. I apologize for not responding sooner (was 6am here, accidentally passed out)
I've found a coworker that's been doing similar routines and they've been helping me push my limits. I don't trust myself with the "cutting" methods I've seen, will likely Have been eating eggs and nearly a whole chicken breast a day. Carrots are about as far as I've gotten into veggies thus far. Will try to lurk more and pick up better eating habits and make use of those videos. I already have a small collection of them, though some are my dad's (T25, Beast workouts, etc) and seem too easy/I've been attempting them with little results. Arms are fine due to the job I have, I fear if they get any more muscular (with my shoulders, as broad as they are) I'd look manish. Will look into, sticky as well (sorry for the bother, first time here)
Dayum OP pic looks juicy
9/10 Would gently spoon whilst giving the reacharound
>One of the largest and most important muscle groups when it comes to fitness isnt fitness related because i'm an insecure fuccboi who is worried that simply viewing male buttocks with cause thousands of dicks to fly into my ass and mouth simultaneously.
Lmao at everybody thinking they have an ass. Ive gotten comments from grills, co workers, friends, family, got fucking nicknames for my ass. My first day at work a qt coworker came up and told me she couldnt stop staring at my ass. Another gril says my ass is always on point and even the older lady said "watch out he squats!" All the bitches at work mirin even the fucking dudes have something to say. Had a black girl feel my ass up and say "oooh u got a nice butt" had a new gril ask me to marry her lol wtf
Not posting pics of my ass just needed to vent this insanity its not even that big.
Tucked, and angling makes my bulge nonexistent. Sent that pic to a female friend a few weeks back because she claimed her ass was nicer.
Not that I'm hung anyways, have an average 6" penor, but i satisfy my gf so so I don't care.
> without hurting
Mfw thinking about hurting
>squat almost 3 plates
>still no bubble butt
Is it true that you get a qt muscular bearmode bf at 4 plates, r-right?
The buttocks which is usually a physical feature in which the bulker is usually proud of is the epitome of his slowly transfusing sexuality due to his lifestyle.
He see's the buttocks on a female as an attractive feature to normal straight men and attempts to mimic it to receive the same validation, the bulker then begins then to shift his source of validation to the very same males due to confusion and insecurity with his sexuality thus slowly altering his sexual orientation which is justified by the self delusion in which the bulker insists that his admiration for the male body comes from a technical physical level and the application of exercise rather than inherent homosexuality and feeling of lust and genuine attraction.
>tfw your ass no longer gets sore from your bf fucking it
>tfw your ass only gets sore from heavy squats
>tfw no vers Justin to enjoy a mutual dicking with
>anon why do you want to look at pictures of me?
some of this is OC but some people are definitely posting some random shit they found on tumblr
where is this adie worship coming from.thought he was a chub
omg that bulge, I've lost the ability to can
>he's my absolute dream husband and probably the sole reason I still lift (because otherwise he would be super disappointed in me ;_;)
>why do all the good guys have to be straight, /fit/?
he's every gay /fit/izens dream guy
>lifts a holy fucking lot
>just the right amount of body fat
>yet just the right amount of redneck
>does typically manly things like eating lots of food, well, lifting, hiking and shooting stuff with his guns
>if he'd sell his persona for a gay porn site he'd probably be a millionaire by now
What exercise is this? Is it good for hamstrings or glutes?
>hurts like shit
>hurTS LIKE SHIT
>okay doesnt hurt as bad
Is there a preferred way to do them? I'm assuming bands would be easier, as i dont know how i'm supposed to attach weights to my feet.
Or is body weight alone acceptable for beginners?
im doing deadlifts, glute bridges, occasionally cable pullthroughs (not lately because they really fucking hurt my forearms for some reason) but my bottom is still quite flat. i squat too but i'm not convinced that shit really does as much as people say. help?
dunno why my pic got deleted from the beginning of the thread but here it is again
>tfw shrug will never show you how he does shrugs and then cuddle after
Why must you fuckers start gay ass threads on every board on this shitty website....
We're supposed to be the alphas of this site and you faggy ass white boys always post the gayest shit... damn I hate you fuckers
This looks like the perfect thread to get some advice
>18 yrs old, skinny as fuck (5’5’’, 132lbs, 5.8% body fat)
>trying to put on some weight with the help of a nutritionist
>going to the gym, taking some supplements (whey/dextrose/albumin), also hypercaloric diet
>can see a bit of difference on my body, a little more muscular, but no butt
>BUT NO BUTT
>realize there’s not even one single butt exercise on my series
>talk to the gym’s personal trainer
>laughs at me, asks if I’m gay, doesn’t help at all
>mfw I want a bubbly butt so bad
What should I do, /fit/ ?? Should I gain some fat first, only then start working on my butt? Should I start working it already? I’m afraid I’ll lose the little amount of butt that I have if I start exercising it already. Can anybody help me?
pic somehow related, my dream butt (it's not much, I'm a humble man)
>Acne around asshole
Fucking dropped. I thought you were perfect too.
If I told anyone about it, maybe. I just kept it to myself. Probably because I'm shy as fuck...and closeted lol Also, he didn't do that in a douchy way, he sincerely asked me that in all his seriousness so, yeah, there's that :P
>>30507470 Thanks for helping, bro! So,should I start doing those already? Is there risk of me getting an even smaller butt because of it?
Please leave faggots... Do you faggy ass white boys really have to fuck up everything with your gay shit... damn.. I can't go to a single board on this shitty site and not see gay shit
Yall niggas gay. I'm just here to judge physiques
I heard Romanian Deadlifts are one of the best exercises you can do for hamstrings and glutes, problem is it strains my elbow and i'm not even using much weight to start off with. Anyone know what might be the problem? I'm kind of new to lifting in general, even my squat form is just barely acceptable and it required some research and work to get it there.
>tfw 29in waist but wear 32 because ass/legs won't fit in pants otherwise
barely, at that
we've also eliminated the need for the horrid existence that is /lgbt/. I honestly don't know why it was made, since we've always had faggot story/discussion threads and so does /hm/
I'd say about 20% of the user base is homosexual
half of that is closeted or denial
I can't be assed to bullshit a percentage for the amount of straight people who legitimately believe they are becoming a homosexual, but I'd say it would be higher than the actual homosexual population here.
>What do your farts smell like?
Nigga u nasty
this image has been around since the dawn of mankind, nice try
This thread suits me very nicely, thank you.
