Transformation Tuesday thread
Complete overhauls edition
a little under a year and a half
I didn't focus on lifting though. I'm a runner and swimmer. I only lift because it's fun and so I can overeat and have excess calories go to gains.
finished muh bulk
6 months, 5'10, 19 years old
after. lost 106 lbs trying to get buff now
I don't remember new years ever being this bad
Thinking bout doing a round of dnp just to help get the last 15 off b/c I've put on weight since my "after".
How dangerous is it /fit/?
Would recommend or nah?
You will permanently lower the efficiency of your atp energy production in the mitochondria of cells (read: your metabolism) by doing dnp.
To get rid of that stubborn fat, what you need is cardio.
Cardio literally changes a receptor balance in the body to burn more fat (refer to Lyle McDonald's work for more info on that)
Do HIIT if you can but it's not absolutely necessary.
Oh okay, thanks for the advice familia.
What's the best cardio to do outside of HIIT? Like if I just swam more laps would that give me similar results to HIIT?
I'm a smoker, so super intense cardio is the devil. I'm more of a consistent jog for 45 minutes sorta lady rather than sprints.
One of my homies just finished a cycle of it, lost like 15 pounds in a month. Great results. Although he told me it was like literal death the whole time and strongly advised I not do it.
I was just asking for more opinions on it, personal experiences, etc. Probably would never actually cycle it, was just looking for some more thoughts on it
The tattoos look real shit in that picture but I swear they're not.
Doc told me I need to lose weight. I would say that means I'm fat
thing is you won't look that different on or off dnp and there's a real chance that you'll fuck something up.
The good thing about cardio is that there are hundreds of things you can do and each provide their own unique benefits. The main reason why cardio is beneficial (because keeping bf% low) is general cardiovascular health. So you don't get winded walking up a flight of stairs or dying at 40 from a heart attack etc etc. Consider: walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, badminton, bodyweight exercises, any sport, yoga. doesn't matter really.
also pls be my waifu
2016 would be a pretty good year to get suffocated under someone's luscious glutes desu
How long between before and after? I've got the same kind of skinnyfat thing in the before pic, looking to cut for at least 2 more months before I bulk again
I mean I do a decent amount of walking everyday (bartending/serving), and yoga like 3x a week or so. I just stopped doing cardio when I started lifting and it's so hard to convince myself to do more than like 30 mins of cardio at a time. And I feel like to get the results I want I'm probably looking at 45-60 5x a week.
Also yes I will be ur waifu even tho I am 3D trash. How weird is it that I'm flattered you have that picture
New Years resolution: death by booty
You may have just gone up to a more maintainable weight. Before I started lifting I got down to 12 (168lbs) stone from 25 stone (350lbs). As I am 6'2 I looked quite thin. I went up to 14 and a half stone (200 lbs) after half a year and looked way better. Stayed that way until I started weights and cardio, don't know how much I weigh now, I just measure my stomach now.
Is that what Cancucks call football?
Maybe, who knows. I think it's more just the fact that I've stopped being so diligent in my diet. I didn't touch refined carbs or fatty protein for a solid year while I was losing weight. Then I got back into pasta etc (moved out, couldn't afford not to have pasta a couple nights a week) and got to where I am now
Ugh football is almost worse than baseball
Americunts and their shit tier tastes in sports baka
In the begining I starved myself and walked miles everyday dropped 50ish pound then there was a phase where i just lifted heavy and ate all day now I do cardio and lift that picture was taken A while ago ive dropped and additional 10 pounds and as for holding my shirt with my hand. It was a progress pic and all the shirts i had were 2xl and 3xl so you couldnt see progress and im not sucking it in i just have lose skin like a mother fucker
ignore the comments on how bad DNP is. I have been cycling for years, it is dangerous if not tooken properly.
If you were to stick to a 125mg pill every 12hours for 21 days you would see the progress and have zero risk of injury.
You could easily up it as well just depends on your activities, I cycle 750mg a day for 15days usually. If I want to go longer I drop it down to 250mg every 12 hours for 21 days. I also am my own boss and can control my schedule 100%.
I wouldn't recommend working out on dnp unless its a brisk walk, because you wont gain any muscle at all. Stay away from complex carbs and eat your 3protons.
>tldr DNP is only dangerous if you are an idiot.
Not really a transformation pic. Just few months progress.
