QTDDTOT: Old one at 300

Usually my penis is a grower, but whenever I take creatine and drink a lot of water, it is much larger when flaccid. Is the hydration or the creatine causing the penile gains

Because I am currently rigged to a machine that measures how much force my body is outputting every 60 seconds. If this amount drops below 240 pounds for whatever reason, a small but oddly shaped butternut squash is pressed firmly against my ballsack. The texture of the squash's outer skin arouses me. However, if I acheive a full erection, my penis will raise, thus tripping a system of wires connected to a priceless 17th century Braussan centerpiece. If the wires are activated, they will cause the centerpiece to fall from its pedestial, shattering against the cave floor. When the centerpiece is shattered, the bees contained within will be released, likely stinging a large portion of my body. As I am allergic to bees, the resulting hospital bill will leave me financially troubled, as I have no health insurance.

So my question is, do crabs think fish can fly?

Could I hit 1OHP/2bench/3squat/4diddies in my first year of lifting? Been on SS since december and progress has been delayed by my poor diet.

Earlier I dreamt of starting a cut on March to look good come July but it's looking to me like I'm just going to have to clean bulk if I want to get those plates on the bar faster. highbar fag too
>>
>>35623068
yes but you'll have to work hard and eat like a king. You can do it bro.

I always lose my motivation when winter begins and lose a lot of gains, so I've never been able to hit those numbers. This year it's going to be different though.
>>
I recently hit 60kg bench but i can only squat about 65, also every time i try to do deadlift at about 80kg my back always rounds so i cant progress
I dont think i am lowbar squatting but am actually doing the high bar, but i dont know how to actually do it correctly no matter how many videos i watch (I cant put the bar any lower and every time i do it feels like my arms are holding it all and it hurts)
I also keep feeling like i am about to fall over when i am standing back up and i actually did fall recently, i also think my hips raise faster than my back/head but i believe only at the beginning of standing up

No

I've been doing SS for three months now, my stats are

40kgs OHP
50kg Bench
70kg Squat
60kg Power Clean
100kg deadlift

Now, to the question, i'm 6'4 and 108kgs and trying to cut. However I want to ride the linear progression as long as I can. If I cut some more and then exercise at my stalled weight, if I then increase my intake would I start making strength gains again? I haven't stalled yet, but I want to plan for the future.
>>
>>35624206
just keep cutting until you seriously stall, on everything, not just you aren't increasing weight every workout on your squats

at 6'4, assuming you're going for strength and being lean at the same time, you'd probably want to your goal weight to be like 95kg

Been lifting for over a year and recently found out ive been highbar squatting with far too much buttwink. When i research it theres alot of conflicting information about how to fix it and/or wether it fixable at all. I already own lifting shoes but they barely help, and even when i increase the heel plateau i still experience buttwink (this regarding ankle mobility). I experience a bit of pain in the muscle that lies over the place where the legg connects with the body, on the front, when i squat. I dont know if my length has got to do with it, but im a very tall person. Anyone got tips/tricks/cues on how to fix this problem?

I crash dieted about 3 years ago (bad, I know) from 190lbs to 150 (I'm a 5'9" manlet). Then I started bodyweights and went back up to 170. I did the low calorie thing again and got down to 160 range.

I'm currently counting calories, and alternating between HIIT and Start Bodyweight 6 days a week. I'm eating high protein and keeping carbs down. I feel fine eating at 1400 calories and lower, though my TDEE is supposed to be around 2600.

My question: should I be forcing myself to up my calories to just a 500 calorie deficit, given that my primary goal is fast loss, or keep my calorie intake as low as I feel comfortable with?

I will give you some serious advice I have experienced first hand over the last couple weeks.

I am 6'2 103 kg.
60g OHP x8
110kg bench x7

Dont diddly or squat due to back injury but prior ti injury many years ago I had a 4 plate diddly and squat.


I have been eating whatever I want really for the last year but I wanted to lose a good 10kg or so.

I changed my diet to eat the meme of oats in morning, premade my chicken, rice and veggies and just ate whatever my girlfriend wanted for dinner.

I am down to 100kg since I changed 2 weeks ago, my lifts have either stayed the same or gone up including accessories.

Muscles much more visible.

Just eat better and you will be fine. The meme foods they promote here actually work.

So after a year of not going to the gym because of back injury, I tried lifting again last week.

My back hurt but it was not the usual kind of pain from my back injury (crushing/compression feeling).

It was more like my erectors are shaking and in pain because I can't move the weight.

Will I be fine? weight was around 40lbs (not including the bar lol). I know it's lightweight but small steps.

1. How can I tell if I have tendinitis or a muscular problem? I'm guessing it's tendinitis just because it's near to the joint, not by the bulk of the muscle

2. Supposing I have tendinitis (it would be near my left medial colateral ligament if that's the case), I keep reading it just needs rest. Does that mean I shouldn't do anything that aggravates it? Or should I not do anything at all with my knees, even if it doesn't hurt? Is stretching it and foaming rolling it still ok?

I'm not going to go to a Dr unless if I have to, because I just happened to go for a slew of other things and can't be bothered.

Sounds like you learned to squat with poor form.

You are more than likely performing a Good Morning motion more than a squat. Correct this immediately.

Pinch shoulderblades tight. Bar rests on the mound of meat your pinched blades has created. "High" or "proud" chest but neutral spine - at ALL points within the lift. Stop lowering the bar once your spine is forces out of the neutral zone (yes its not a 1-shape strict S-curve - there's some minor flex to it).

And do your godamn stretches. You're too tight.

Oh and grip width on squats doesnt matter - you grip it as close to you as possible AS LONG AS it doesn't fuck with any other part of your form. Yes you hold yhe bar in place MINORLY and from rolling off your back but ideally your back would support it the full rom.

If you are new to lifting (under a year) I would say to eat those extra 500 calories on your lifting days only just to fuel your work out a bit more. If your protien is in check you shouldn't lose any muscle and may gain some noob gains. At the worst you will waste your noob gains replacing the muscle that your body has cannibalized over your diet. I've been on a 1200kcal a day diet for the past 5 months to lose 70 lbs. I've had my body scanned twice and I've gain 4 pounds of muscle since I started. I know that isn't alot but it's better than losing it.
>>
>>35625169
if any of your t's suffered a compression fracture or dislocation at all, your stabilization muscles literally pick up the slack. Do not even lift a weight greater than half bodyweight and put it on your back. Your stabilization chain has to recover and build up in possibly a completely new way. A great way to recover is simply crunches, reverse incline crunches in extremely low amounts, and doing back squats with just the bar. Your goal is to stress the back, not to push more weight or do more reps. Never ever go for heavy weight on anything if your back is feeling stressed after a spinal injury, because in most cases it, esp. After compression your "back muscles" become
Fatigued and start placing burdens and weight appropriation where they shouldn't.

I see.

I was lifting fine a year ago though, for around 6 months before I was diagnosed.

But I knew beforehand that I had something wrong with me since I have sciatica pain that travels downward to my right leg and knee.

My condition is concentric annular tear and disc degeneration on my L5-S1. The doctors always say these things are bad but recovery is doable.

But resting for one year is enough and my condition only worsened because lmao no exercises. This is why I decided to go back lifting.

Is this a smart move? I was better when I stopped and I'm worse right now.

It is going to burn and feel sore like a motherfucker. pain means stop fucking immediately. Listen to those muscles because they're what hold your back up. The spine is not some magical pole you're rigged to, it's the scaffolding your muscles use to stand you up and place weight on. Never do more than the bar until your back gets better. That being said, don't give up either. Expect a year under that same bar. Record yourself, everytime you do a set and make sure you aren't hyperextending either portion of your back, stay neutral. Straight as possible, that bar should have no horizontal movement, only vertical. IF you're overweight do not walk with anything other than perfect posture. That spine has to be proper. If you have a pot belly, I'm sorry, but if you don't lose it you will never get better. I see people everyday who walk while they're doing a weak pendlay row from a bad angle with a pot belly. Guess what? Back problems.
Godspeed

I'm 27, female, weigh 51.0kg. My pain location is stated in the posting to be left medialcollateral ligament, so that's the inside of the left knee, though it's a bit higher up on the knee - sort of top inside corner. The activities that stress the area include skating, hockey, glute bridges if my legs are abducted, kneeing a pad for combat... I don't ever wake up with pain, the pain only comes when I use the muscle/tendon. I don't take any medications. Yes, stretching hurts as does foam rolling.

>>35629024
I would examine your diet and tell you that pain is a bad sign. Stretch it everyday and try to take a break from activities that put it under explosive pressure, like side stepping quickly, hockey is probably something you should completely stop doing since it's completely dependent on that sideways motion. Make sure you're eating well while you recover, no lack of carbs or protein. Women are always watching their figure. I feel like I need to state you need to be on the positive side of the spectrum and gain weight during a recovery with no exception. Being said, it's fine if you only gain three pounds over your few months of recovery. But let's say you lost three pounds and got a little worse rather than recovered. It makes a huge difference. Eat what you need, treat it like a sore muscle, tendons take time to heal, especially so in athletes

Here's the thing, I lost my job and haven't had time due to school to apply for health insurance.

Also, I need medicine for my psorasis which is fucking up.

You aren't using correct form
Do incline at multiple angles you should pinch your back on the bench and feel it in your pecs and clavicle head.
You probably feel it in your arms, elbow and in your back, all places that should never be site after bench
IF your chest isn't sore you are not benching

.5 lbs a week is ideal, a pound a week is more fat than muscle. Try to be sore everyday and meet your protein and carb needs. That being said, weight gain is good on fit

Having some weird shit go down. I've been bulking for like a year on 3250 cals, and about a week ago switched to a 2500 cal cut. While bulking I was severely stagnating for MONTHS. Could not gain another pound. Now, since starting my cut, my weight is a record high.
I'm counting calories exactly the same way, and regardless if the absolute values are wrong, I'm gaining with 750 less than I ever could before. Why the fuck did I suddenly balloon in weight? I'm eating the same shit, just less.
>>
>>35632239
I like to super set my incline curls with rear delt flies, or DB curls with lat raises.
Facepulls are also great.

If you find benching isn't hitting your front delts well enough, you could try pressing with a closer grip, or cable front raises.

I bought a tub of Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 and Amplified Mass XXX, and am looking into some other brands. I normally take 1 scoop of the protein every day, +1 more on workout days, and 2 scoops of the Mass Gainer just on workout days. The mass gainer helps, as I tend to eat a lot in one sitting, but I'm not used to steadily eating throughout the day.

Should I stick with hydrolized/isolate wheys? Does it make that big of a difference? Recommended mass gainers based on nutritional quality/price? What brands are your favorites?

I'm 5'8, I hover between 143-148 now (was at 135~ when I started a few months ago), not a lot of body fat, trying to put on 10~ more pounds.

Doing the stronglifts 5x5 Tu/Th/Sa right now and still seeing stead games.

(I tried GoMAD. I dislike endless milk-shits.)
>>
>>35634124
just make sure it has a wide amino-acid composition. Ive never had mass gainer, Ive never needed it so know fuck all about it.

However Im questioning why you need both brotein shakes and mass gainer? whats up with your diet?
>>
>>35634292
The protein shakes are about 20 grams of protein, and I take a maximum of 2 scoops of the mass gainer mostly just to be drinking some extra calories, and for the carbs/extra bit of protein. I work 6 days a week at pretty active jobs, bike to and from work, workout 3 times a week, and do a few hours of a physical combat sport 2 times a week. I don't have a crazy big appetite, so it seemed like it could help fit some extra calories into meals.

I might also be wrong and/or retarded. I'm not experienced enough to rule anything out.

then lose weight lmao

you're not gonna build muscle without a caloric surplus. at least not at any rate you care about

lose weight through cardio+lifting and deal with being weak for a few months (and probably getting weaker). eat protein to maintain the little shape you have, and then start bulkin up at whatever rate feels comfortable and shows results in the mirror

also hourglass figures come partially from bone structure, but if you're fat, you're probably holding a large amount of fat in your organs, under your ribs, which is widening your core

as you lower your body fat (NOT the same as losing weight, you need to have a better muscle/fat ratio), your waist will get smaller.

other than that you can avoid prioritizing core exercises. Should be ass>hams>quads>lats>calves

assuming the food you're eating is the same, then you're just burning less calories. up your cardio.

do this for 2 weeks and track everything. every meal, every exercise. everything. write this shit down. if after 2 weeks you're still gaining weight, see a doctor. you have a serious health issue

Anything dumbbell.
Unilateral cable/machine exercises.

>>35628507
Doesn't matter a ton post workout, eat however you feel will fit in with your meal patterns.

Pre workout, some people do fine on an empty stomach, others benefit from a small meal sometime shortly before lifting. Do whichever you prefer.

Reps that low aren't entirely optimal for muscle gains, 1-3 is generally more for cns gains, obviously muscle gains will occur, but not as much as your body adapting to recruit more motor units in a short amount of time

A trainer at the gym has been telling me that the best way to train is to do working sets, and then immediately do double the amount of sets with 50% weight.

If I were doing Squats, I'd do 1x5 300, then immediately do 1x10 150.

If I were doing curls, I'd do 1x8 30, then immediately do 1x16 15.

He claims this causes even more microtears, since the muscle has already been strained, and so what would normally be light weight endurance reps turn into hypertrophy and strength reps.

This smells of bullshit. Is this bullshit?

i'm pretty hopeless atm since no one can ever give me a straight answer to this. So i went anorexic near the end of high school in 2014 and ever since have been eating around under 1,000 cals a day to cut but i feel like my bodies in starvation mode due to lack of energy, sex drive, etc. and i could be burning more muscle than fat. Is there any way to fix my metabolism for good because as soon as i up my calories even a little i a gain weight fast. will doing a 500 mg weekly testosterone cycle for 8 weeks be enough to kick my metabolism back into gear and build enough muscle so that it stays fast in the long run?
>>
>>35638167
Stop being retarded.
If you don't eat enough starting a cycle will not fix anything. If you have been eating 1000/day for two years and staying the same weight you are either a skeleton that needs to gain weight, or you can't count for shit.
>>
