Didn't see one
I got no sleep and I'm wondering if I could eat without gaining a pound. All I ate yesterday was 12 Oz of skinless chicken thigh, 190 calories worth of baby carrots, a small green apple, and 2 20 Oz cups of coffee with creamer.
I'm trying to fix my sleep schedule.

Who do you guys go to to check form?

I've been lifting for about a month but i get this continuous pain in my groin, I think my form's off

Should I ask a PT or just another lifter using barbells?
>>
>>35485748
Record yourself lifting amd compare it to videos on youtube
>>
>>35485748
Watch lots of youtube videos, then try video taping yourself in the same kinds of angles.
Do not ask 99% of PT's. They don't know the difference between a pec deck machine and a bench press.

>>35485748
Film yourself and compare with good form on youtube videos.

>>35485762

That's a good idea, didn't consider recording myself, though I guess there are a lot of "check my form threads" circulating

Yeah I mean most PTs at my gym aren't even really doing too much free weight stuff, so i doubt they know too much about perfecting form

Thanks a ton guys

If I eat after getting no sleep and eating the day before, will I gain any weight?? I haven't eaten since like 4 or 5 am and it's 12pm now
>>
I'm coming off Boring but Big (5/3/1 with extra volume and accessories, essentially) and my theoretical maxes (the ones I am basing my program on) should be:

Wieght 166 lbs
Squat 345 lbs
DL 415 lbs
Bench 240 lbs
Press 180 lbs

Obviously these should be tested, but given the number of reps I've managed in my working sets, I should be somewhere around these 1RMs.

Could anyone recommend a program to hit next? Maybe one that includes cleans, or at least power cleans?

>I'm wondering if I could eat without gaining a pound

Yes, if you eat under your TDEE.

>what you ate yesterday

Doesn't matter. You either stick to your TDEE or per week, whichever is the easiest for you discipline wise. Overeating one day isn't going to make you gain weight, doing it for weeks at a time is.
>>
>>35485899
The total amount of calories in 24 hours is what matters, not when you eat. An you sound like you eat very little food. Be smart and go after your TDEE instead. You'll get better results and you'll probably sleep better.

And don't drink coffee if you have problems sleeping, mate.

You can workout your abs every day and still have good results. Other than that as a noob you shouldnt be overtraing any muscles. There are programs for things like squatting every day but thats way more advanced.

I made a thread about this but no one answered:

Is AxxBxxCxx good for a routine that's mostly compound lifts? Or is it ineffective?

3x5 Deadlift, culminates in one heavy-ass DL
5x5 Bench
3xf Pullup
random ab work

>B day:
Squats 5x5

Pullups 3xf
random abwork
farmer's walks, forearm blasters and shrugs


I train to get as strong as possible, I'm also eating on a surplus. I was thinking maybe 24 hours of rest between deadlifts and squats was counterproductive?

Is it reasonable to do Smolov with a typical hypertrophy program minus leg work?

My squat is weak af to be honest (1pl8) so I obviously need to strengthen it. However, I am not so willing to give up the rest of my body just to strengthen my legs. After all, work I still have yet to reach my goals.

So, can I just do my normal routine with Smolov minus the legs? If so, do ya'll have any recommendations for specific accessories? Thanks in advance.

What's a good goal weight for my height (6'7")? Startwd at 165, just broke 230 lbs, has been my goal for ages.
>>
So I have somewhat of a dilemma.. Recently started lifting weights again after some problems not related to it. I want to build a bit of muscle and get stronger but I'm not too sure about counting calories and all that.. since I have a past of disordered eating. Would it most likely work out if i tried to just eat enough, get plenty of protein for muscle growth, not eat way too much and just lift. I'm 178 cm 56 kg for the record. I don't look too thin or anything. My goal is slim but muscular.. Any tips at all would be very appreciated.
>>
>>35486019
That sounds normal to me.

>>35486080

So I just tried squatting with a belt (5x5 215) and it felt amazing. Im pretty sure I've just been losing tightness on the way up because even on the last rep that I had to grind I was still able to stay upright, whereas normally I might start tipping over. So I assume this means my core is weak as fuck? What kind of exercises should I do to get it stronger?

After bench press I get a pain in my front right delt. That can't be shoulder impingement, can it? Based on pictures I'd have thought an impingement would hurt in the back of the shoulder. Besides, this feels like muscle pain, like a minor strain. If I raise the weight do I risk tearing it? Is my form off if my deltoid hurts but pecs don't feel much of anything?

>>35486118
Make sure you do it correctly. Most research show that fatties underestimate their calorie intake by 20 % and skellies overestimate even worse. To keep a log over your eating would prevent fuck ups.

>>35485815

Nothing as long as you get all the amino acids.
Out of all the beans only Soy beans have the complete sequence.

I don't know about lentils and oats. If you drink milk or indulge in other dairy produts or eggs don't even worry about this as you'll get the complete sequences just by eating whatever it is you're usually eating.

If you're a vegan, you have to make sure you get the all the amino acids that make up the proteins. I don't know which those are but I know some of them are missing from beans which means = No gains if all you eat are beans (bar Soy beans).

Alternatively, pick up meditation. Meditate before bed. Give it a week and your body will develop a routine.

If you had to choose between these two ohp variations only, which would be better and why:

>seated barbell ohp with no back support
>wide stance barbell ohp, think like a sumo wide stance

My understanding is the seated press works the shoulders better but loses much of the core, leg and pectoral head engagement of standing. But does standing with a wide stance even benefit the same as with feet closer together?

As an anecdote, I can lift much more weight more comfortably while standing with the wide stance but ultimately it's a shoulder workout so I question whether I'm really gaining any benefit from doing it this way or if I would be better off with seated.

I haven't really seen anyone do the standing ohp with a wide stance which makes me wonder if there's not something horribly wrong with doing it this way?

But I suggest:
Shrug 3x a week, if you're doing fullbody training. Or 2-3x a week and do farmer's carries once a week.
All the pros of a static hold and extra upper trap gains.

Getting forearms to grow is best done by their main function, holding things. Ideally heavy things. If your grip strength is suffering at first, start using chalk or liquid chalk on your deadlifts.

So I'm finally able to start working out again, but I never did quite do anything about my shit diet when I was able to the first time.

Brown rice takes for fucking ever to cook, since my gym is 30 minutes away from me. 1 or 2 hour long workout + 30 minute drive + 45 minute cook time for rice alone = a lot of time before I get any benefits. Would it be alright if I just cooked a shitload of rice and just reheated it over the course of a few days, so I can have rice practically on demand?

3) My gf is interested in lifting too. She tried it before for some time and stopped, but now that I'm going for some time she feels like joining. Any recommended programs for woman? She has a lot of weight to lose (40 pounds iirc) which I believe is her major goal.

You shouldn't be caring what /fit/ thinks of the gym you use, even Planet Fitness has more than what you need for whatever your goals are except for maybe competitive powerlifting.

/fit/, I am in need of help for a friend of mine.
He's skinny as fuck. 6'4" and 143 lbs.
Solution is obviously to eat more, duh. Problem is, he's lactose intolerant so GOMAD won't work. He's tried peanut butter out the whazoo but apparently it literally makes him puke if he eats at caloric surplus on a normal day. His twin has IBS so it's very likely he has it too, but it's not been diagnosed.

I wish I could help him out with some advice on how to force yourself to eat more, but I'm the exact opposite and was fat as fatass a year ago, and had a practically bottomless appetite. Downed a 5 lbs burger (2.5 lbs of just beef, even), flushed it down with a large milkshake, bought a ~50 oz of soda and drank that, then went home to eat dinner back in high school.
I literally do not know how it is possible to not be able to force yourself to eat more, and he needs the most calorically dense shit you can possibly find, that won't fill him up (we tried potato chips, shit didn't work and I can't think of anything more calorically dense short of chugging straight cooking oil)

I'm at a complete loss but I really wanna help him. He's only 19 and has scoliosis, the aforementioned shit, and I don't want him to be sad that he's never going to be able to look like his favorite Jojo when he really is willing to put in the effort.

Step 1, there is only one step

1. Realize that your "oneitis" is a result of chemical attraction and literally millions of other girls can make you feel the exact same way. Some of those even like you back.

>b-b-but this one's special

No. She's not. Actually, let's get this out of the way, nobody is special. Not you, not her, not anyone. Once you let go of this your life will become a lot easier. You can start to see people for the flawed, yet beautiful creatures they are, and not the perfect ideal you've built your crushes up to be. Had you ever gotten them, and if you were to get this one, you'd be over it in six months when you realize she farts in bed and chews with her mouth open and loves really bad movies and steals from Sephora.

It's trite and it gets said here a lot, but you CAN NOT LOVE ANYONE ELSE UNTIL YOU LOVE YOURSELF. And the irony is that once you love yourself, you stop feeling like you need someone else to complete you.
>>
>>35490288
Depends on the context of the program. Yes, it can work to add additional volume to a lift, especially as fatigue sets in.

>>35490029
It's fine. As long as you can keep adding weight to it, it'll work as a decent upper body compound.

>>35490456
Look for high protein, low calorie foods. Cottage cheese, tuna, whey, Greek yogurt, lean cuts of meat, etc.

>>35489945
GSLP should be fine. Any program that has you hitting everything heavy will work, just understand that eventually you'll stall in weight progression in a calorie deficit as you lean out.

>>35489923
It's better a bit too low than a bit too high. Bend your knees a bit more and use your legs to get it off the rack. It shouldn't strain your wrists.

>>35489729
You might have some water retention, but it'll be fine. If anything it'll be more of a scare if you're going by scale weight alone as your measurement of progress.

>>35489646

really quick question hopefully straightforward answer:

when trying to get a calorie excess, would it be a good idea to pander to fattier/seemingly unhealthier versions of things (full fat milk, cooking lots of oil rather than being sparring) just to get those extra carbs?

So far my bulk is pretty healthy/clean, but it's always teetering on not being enough (one missed cottage cheese could be make or break), obversely i feel pretty satisfied with the amount of food i'm eating already (in terms of appetite and how it dents my wallet)

This is another reason whey is perfect for people on a cut. High-quality (read:Optimum Nutrition) is 120 calories for 24g protons. Though I'd have someone take a second look at your diet plan.

seated ohp is generally considered military press. for dyels like you and me it's a small difference but as you get heavier you'll arch your back more to turn it more into a bad incline. also when you stand you can kinda kick it up to cheat your last rep if needed.

i don't have a good answer for you but my opinion is if you're best with sumo stance i say go for it. i can't see how it's harmful at all, just your own preference. i am curious why you think these are your only two options.

anyway sorry i don't have a concrete, physiological reason for why one is better, just my 2c.

Arch looks a little soft and bad sequencing on the return. Your knees are bending before your hips and it's having the effect of driving your set up more vertical. Do a set next time where you release and stand up between pulls. Consciously think about keeping you glutes activated on the descent.

I have been going to the gym for 2 years to try and bulk up, I started at hungry skelleton mode at only 65Kg, I managed to bulk to 76Kg by the end of last year...

I lose like 1 Kg every 2-3 days, I now have only 72Kg and dropping!

What the fuck is going on? Im eating like I never ate before trying to gain some weight but im still losing it!

The only thing different is that im not training these 2 weeks because my gym is in another city.

I dont understand this shit, how is this even possible? I should be gaining fat weight not losing weight while trying to gain it!

Will I immediately know it if I've slipped one of the disc's in my back? or will I have to wait a few days to determine if it's a disc problem or a pulled muscle
>>
Obviously it's far from good but how bad would going to the gym only once/twice a week be?
How slow would progress roughly be if any?
>>
>>35495006
Not sure, but I had a scare a few weeks ago when I felt almost a pop in my back and it hurt like fuck to breathe.
Gave it two days and it went away.
Sorry I didn't help, but I imagine you'll know if it stays around at the same intensity for more than a few days.

>>35495012
If you do full body sessions 2x a week you'll still make great gains given nutrition is on point.
One time a week you'll still make some, but it will be much slower.
>>
how much should i be feeling it in the legs when i deadlift? i don't really feel at all and pretty much entirely feel it in my lower back.. but i'm not rounding my back
>>
>>35495138
You should feel your hamstrings and glutes doing some work. I never feel my quads when deadlifting.
>>
>>35485887
Pretty sure it's stock image guy harold
>>
>>35495154

it's not really possible to deadlift 110kg without using your hamstrings/glutes right... i pretty much only feel the burn in my lower back so i'm afraid i'm going to snap city but my form seems ok

You're not going to get anywhere by working out twice a week

ok i see a lot of pseudoscience bullshit on this board so i just want a straight answer on this. Is it possible to lose body fat and build muscle at the same time, or is the deficit needed to lose fat make it impossible to gain muscle?
>>
>>35487688
You need a squat plug, works wonders with balance.
>>
>>35493128
Happens to me the day after skullcrushers sometimes. Its a very blunt muscle pain, somewhat like when you get a bad cramp and it still hurts the next day. Also foreams hurt whenever I do forearm curls/pullups and let go of the bar.
Think its just overuse of muscle, rest rinse and repeat.
>>
>>35493241
Surround yourself with a circle of protein powder and chant the shoo shoo mantra
>>
I recently started going to the gym like the countless other peopler after NYE.

I did it sunday and stretching my arms out still hurts. Should I keep at it or take another days break? I did legs yesterday so it's not an option today, right?
>>
>>35495355
started working out about 5-6 months ago and believe me the first 2ish weeks sucks dick in a bad way. keep at it slow at first and eventually the soreness last for hours rather than days. keep going brah you can do it!
>>
>>35495258
Of course you can build muscle and lose fat, what youre getting confused is cutting from normal weight to ripped and going from hamplanet to normal.
In the first case your main goal is grtting rid of fat so your muscles show, which usually means you'll have to lose some muscle in the process. The second means lifting while correcting your diet so you build muscle but lose all excess fat that you accumulated by being a blob. As a fat fuck you probably have very little muscle so theres nothing to lose
>>
>>35495372
So should I go lifting today again or wait?
And thanks, I'll keep going. I got 2 gymbuddies who have been going for about a year now and we have a good time while were down there.
I also love being able to feel my body and my pulse being high.
>>
>>35495378
alright well that was aggressive but thanks for the straight answer
>>
>>35495400
aw hell man im not a doctor so take this with a grain of salt but i would try to unless you really seriously feel like you are gonna tear muscle or buy a ticket to snap city.

If it's a dull aching pain it's just DOMS. The best remedy for that is movement. Go workout. If it's sharp dtabBing pain, it could be threshold of injury. Take it easy.

Hammy flexibility is important, but for deadlifts it's probably your form or too much weight nigguh
>>
Can any boxers help me out, i'm a little over 5'11/182cm with a 74.5 inch reach pretty broad shoulders too, what weight class is my frame best suited for
>>
>>35486253
Anyone have any experience with this? Don't know whether to add 2.5kg on my Friday bench press or take 5kg off. Nothing hurts this morning.
>>
>>35495695
Sounds like your form is off and that's the top of your bicep. Proceed with caution.
>>
Does hiit make you hungry? I'm bulking anyway, but I did my usual weight session and then did 30 minutes of pretty intense sprint cycling intervals, and I've just been going into super saiyan levels of eating ability tonight
>>
>>35495751
30 minutes? Yeah you're going to be hungry. A typical tabata is 4 minutes. And HIIT has been shown to be an appetite suppressant.
>>
>>35495737
Caution it is, thanks. I know I should post a form video, but what on earth puts the pain in the top of the biceps?
>>
>>35495766
Yeah I wasn't too hungry straight afterwards come to think of it - I didn't have any desire to eat my lunch, but hours later, around dinner and afterwards I was fucking ravenous
>>
where can I buy SARMs

I seem to get contradicting information about whey protein.
Yay or Nay?
>>
>>35495786
Your biceps is a multijoint muscle. Its origin is in the shoulder and it inserts below the elbow. You're probably flaring too early.

>>35495811
Yay

>>35495792
You burned a lot of energy brah. Your body wants a refuel. That's all.
>>
>>35495811
Do you have trouble getting in the amount of protein you need and can't eat another can of tuna or piece of meat?
>>
>>35486917
Why don't you count cals?
>>
>>35495833
This is a good point. Ideally you want to get your calories from nutrient dense whole foods. Protein should be used as a supplement when you can't, on a bulk, and a meal replacement on a cut. For good nutrition it shouldn't be a long term solution. Whey is the fastest processing protein, so it's good in a post workout replenishment.
>>
This is probably a retarded question.
Does the time when you eat calories matter? I am doing a clean bulk right now, and should i just maintain calorie intake on both lifting days, and resting days? (I lift 3 days a week).
>>
>>35495986
Yes, natty lord scoob did an article about this. You're better off eating at +250 over two days (one training and one rest) than +500 on one and at maintenance on another.
>>
How bad of an idea is it to take an ibuprofen on rough days before the gym? I am just starting out and am sore as hell, but have several more days to work out in my week still, some with even harder exercises.
>>
is muscle confusion a meme? do you need to change your exercises on a regular basis in order to maximize muscle gain? or is progressive overload on the same exercises best?
>>
>>35495833
>>35495860
>>35495827
I live with my parents and they often make low-protein food, and I can't make an additional meal.

So whey protein after a workout seems like the best option then I guess, thanks guys.
>>
Is it somehow bad to do a full body workout ( lifting) every other day , basically three times a week. Started and seems to work okay for me, since I'm awfully weak with barely any muscle..
>>
I'm starting o build my home gym and I found out that olympic plate and olympic bar cost much more then regular "small hole" plate.
What do you guys think? should I go for the small plate or should I spend more and go for the olympic plate

how do i suck enough penis to get a nice jaw like jeff seid or scooby?

I've sucked 9 cocks in the last 3 weeks going AxAxAxx : A= cocked sucked
>>
>>35496120
im currently building my homegym and im getting the small hole.its better for me cuz its cheaper and fits both my bar and my adjustable dumbells
>>
>>35496054
Depends. Muscle confusion as it is understood in pop fitness is a meme. But, the underlying theory is sound. Progressive overload is a type of muscle confusion. Switching up isolation exercises is also muscle confusion. The reason it works is because you groove a lift and your muscles become more efficient at lifting that groove. Switching up will allow further growth and reduce stalling. If you're building a routine, look at keeping the main four lifts, and swapping out the isolations/accessories every 4~6 weeks.

>>35496117
Perfect newb routine. Yes.

>>35496120
You'll outgrow a standard weight set fairly quickly. The standard bar maxes out usually ~200lbs. If you can afford it, go with an Olympic set. You should be able to find a starter (300lb) set for ~$250.
>>
>>35496196
>>35496054

Switching up exercises will also help prevent injury.

Is greasing the groove a good method to use for my ring dips if my max is about 4?

I don't have the headspace at the moment for ring pullups/chinups. My knees start on the floor. Should I start with knees tucked back or legs in front and try to progress with L-Sit pullups/chins?
>>
Rolling for push-ups.
>>
Curious how long a Starting Strength session take? An hour?
>>
>>35496043
Do it. It's a good way to deal with DOMs, and it will not affect gains.
>>

>>
>>35496578
If you do your warm-ups right and are actually challenging yourself to lift weight it should take about that long.

>>35496462
What a silly notion. Expect gains.

>>35496043
DOMS will go away after a week at most if you are training each part frequently enough (ie- not a brosplit).
>>
>>35496793

>>35496812
If you want to achieve this jaw you must suck at least three penises a day, and make sure you hit your protein macros so remember to swallow. Good luck, senpai.
>>
>>35496848
thanks senpai, does colour matter. i heard asian dicks are too small and dont give as much of a hypertrophy.
>>
>>35496908
This is true. For max gains go for BBC.
>>
>>35496786
Thank you. I was worried it would affect them by relieving swelling or some shit. I don't know.

>>35496804
I am splitting groups up by day at the moment, so it will likely not go away for quite a while.

Is there an alternative for ephedrine if I want to do an ECA stack? To my knowledge ephedrine is not shipped to Estonia anymore.

Prescription medicine is also an option - I have a friend who can write prescriptions.

I feel like I'm really slow to recover after working out one rest day doesn't feel like enough. Any tips or supplements for quicker recovery?

I can't stretch my triceps.

It hurts my shoulder just as i can feel a stretch and it intensifies if i keep it there

What's wrong with me? I've never been able to stretch my triceps, even before i started working out

Can you guys think of any more lifts to add to these core lifts that im going to base a work out around?

Squat, DL, Pull Up, Row, Bench, Ohp

I have been doing xAxBxAx - xBxAxBx

A - Squat, Ohp, Pull Up

B - Squat, Bench, Row

I think i have the basic movements down but i want to add a little more in there. Please help /fit/
>>
>>35493566
Yes, I get that I will need to deload and start again. However, I still can't do it even with the empty bar. Should I half-squat with weights while doing SL and practice proper form at home with bodyweight?
>>
Whats the general advice for 6.1 male who weighs in at 190?

So how really necessary is to change your routine from time to time? How drastic the change is suppose to be? Can I just remix the order of my exercises or what?
