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
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
Is it normal for some of my joints to "click" / feel like a vein/artery/something is being slushed around?
If I'm sitting at my desk and I do a leg extension with my right leg and hold a finger against the patella I can feel something being moved around forcefully.
If I do a skull crusher and my arms aren't tucked, my right shoulder clicks and it feels like I'm pinching a nerve.
Anything I can do to stop these?
I've been doing SS for three months now, my stats are
60kg Power Clean
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.
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
I'm trying to get into tinder since I'm a 20 yo virgin
Is this a decent pic? I wasn't sure who else I'd ask, pls no ban janny.
Never EVER use a selfie on tinder. Get a bro to take a picture of you lifting, a good one, another one with you enjoying yourself doing a hobby, another one in a group of friends smiling. This photo is shit, sorry bud.
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?
That's what I figured. Time to find some friends, or someone to take my photo at least
You're a fairly good looking guy so I'm just gonna assume you're autismo. Choose something you would like to do and go and fucking do it and try your best to meet new people through it. If you don't have a job get one, and make friends through work. You'll be ok bud, we're all gonna make it.
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?
What clothing should I wear when running outside in thirty degree weather that won't hamper my legs and shit? Don't have access to a treadmill right now and I need to work on cardio before I ship for basic.
Thanks for your response. I kind of figured this, thing is my buttwink without weight or with max.is just about as bad. But this still might be a good approach i figure, its hard to tell whats wrong without a video
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.
I bought a tub of 100% creatine monohydrate.
Does this help as a preworkout at all?
No. Timing is irrelevant to creatine's effectiveness. You just need to make sure you maintain your elevated levels of it.
Unless you're talking about the EC stack, in which case, yeah. Stimulants help many people.
>Once I stop taking it, will the creatine gains be lost?
No. The gains are yours to keep. Although you MAY experience a slight decline in performance.
Also, do not ever buy a supplement without researching it first, you goddamn moron. Go to examine.com if you have questions about supplements.

But then I can't be /mischievous/
Don't use fucking gym pics on Tinder.
Well, let me expand, unless you're only interested in sl00t slaying then go ahead. The quality of matches you'll get will be shitty, but if you jusy want a meat sack to empty your balls into then it doesn't matter.
Cute baby animal pictures > hobby pictures >travelling pictures > gym stuff
I'm 5'6, 138 lbs and 17% bf.
I want to have muh abs this summer
Should I keep bulking extremely lean until march and then cut? Will I have enough time in 3 months to go from 17% to 11% ?
Or should I just start cutting already and when I arrive to 11% bf start with the lean bulk without losing abs¿
>first world problems
>using tinder for anything else than banging sluts
The question is, why aren't you eating oats with milk and a scoop of scoop 3 times a day?
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.
There are a lot of women 25+ on there not interested in pump and dumps.
I've got a load of matches that are more interested in proper mod/long-term dating than a quick fuck. I'm 30 though, if I were still in my early 20s I 'd be matching club sluts just to tear up some hole.
I have a sleep formula pill that I take at least once a week. Here are the ingredients:
Valerian: 300 mg L-Theanine: 200 mg Gamma-aminobulryic acid: 250 mg 5-HTP: 250 mg. Melatonin: 2 mg.
Will I go through withdrawals if I stop taking it?
But, all that stuff is in a serving size of 2 capsules. I only take one.
tried asking this last thread but are there Ausfags here? Is $8 a good price for a kg of boneless Pork leg? Kinda new to counting calories and getting my own food.
Should I work out first for 6 months and get babbys first gains before taking creatine to boost my progress? Or can I take creatine immediately? I've lifted now for about a month. I'm not new to lifting though, I did Arnold's golden six for about half a year but stopped working out for another 6-7 months. I guess I started with the wrong program, now doing SS and I think it feels better to start with.
Ok thanks, I read a finnish "muscle doctor" (kek) blog and this guy suggested that only start creatine when you've worked out for 6 months or you stall. But I guess I'll just try it now.
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.

I started lifting in september and I can already Ohp 110 lbs, bench 160 lbs, Squat 230 lbs and diddy 280 lbs. I've been on a deficit the whole time going from 230 lbs to 175 lbs as of now. I started on SL but I just switched to ICF 5x5 a few weeks ago
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.
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.
Age gender pain location
Recent activities that are stressing the area
How long had this been going on
Do you wake up with sharp or dull pain
Do you take any medications on the daily
Does it hurt to stretch the area
Try to include these for anon
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.
So /fit/ I've always done dumbell seated overhead press because I'm 6'5 and my gym ceiling is too low to do standing. Can easily do 24kg (48kg total) for 3x8 reps.
Today finally tried barbell standing overhead press. Form good I believe and only managed 35kg 3x5... why??
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.
It takes me 8+ hours to finish a bowl of whey, PB and oatz. Same if I do it with grits. I don't know why.
Vegetable soup is also a favorite of mine.
Hop on an ECA, if you aren't already.
Why is my bench so poverty during SS but I'm making good gainz on Squats and DL? I get that you're typically supposed to stall faster on the upper body stuff but I can't seem to even get near 1plaet for bench even after deloading.
I weigh 145lbs and I've been increasing squat to 170lbs. Bench has been stuck at 95lbs for a while.
What's best if I want 200g of proteins per day:
-40g of every 4 hours even before sleep
-50g every 4 hours and not so much before sleep
How am I doing? Should I be putting on weight faster? I did the math, and if I keep gaining a pound a week I should hit my goal around mid April. I'm so fucking impatient.
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.
how do i get my bench to go up fast? its my most lacking lift at 115lbs, should i do it 3x a week, but when am i going to OHP then? it takes me maybe 4 bench sessions to get it up.
Can someone give me more information on explosive power? I'm doing Pendlay Rows and I really love them. How does explosive power differ from a slow squat or a slow row? Are there other explosive moves like Pendlay Rows? tyia
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
Does fit know where I can buy prescription medicine?
Here's the thing, I lost my job and haven't had time due to school to apply for health insurance.
Anybody have experience with all day chemist? Want to buy some viagra to bang my girl really hard for Valentines, but I feel sketched out buying something for my dick online.
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
Why don't fitness gipsys tell you that getting good obliques makes your core look awesome?
Like I had been lifting for a few months and I felt like I just had big arms & quads.
Start doing obliques and, holy fuck, I feel like Arnie.
Can I get nice hips by lifting? I know I can get a nicer butt, but I'd wish I could be more hourglass.
>before you get into bb
Before I get into the barbell?
Why the fuck are there 3 QTDDTOT?
I did SS for months now and my llifts went up pretty good. I want to switch to PPL now, but I can go to the gym just 5 times a week. Can I do push and pull 2 times a week and legs just one time?
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.
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.
you spent all that time writing something noone found funny, whew
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.)
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?
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
>not that anon but
>problem: have gross food that i want to eat.
>question: how to make food less gross
>answer: get a different flavour of the exact same food next time
>??? tf u expect u unhelpful ho
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
Unilateral cable/machine exercises.
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?
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.
nah i've been lifting in the process and now have a body that resembles the methhead from gta 5, not alot of fat but not alot of muscle. I was just wondering since i have been lifting the whole time and mentally perfected my training/diet would hopping on some test help me take my training to the next level and cure this fucked up metabolism?
Does the tinytrip push/pull do good with a power clean instead of a normal clean?
I started exercising my groin/inner upper thighs over the last few days and the pain has been so bad but only for today?
The pain in around my groin is weakening and the bone that connects the leg to the hip is still sore.
I am a noob lifter please help
