Although, as long as you eat like mad and get on a linear routine you should be able to get your gains back fairly quickly, especially since you know proper form and wont be making any rookie mistakes.
>>35792657 >>35792705 Have you actually tried this? If you can do 3x10 chinups after all that work on Friday you most likely aren't working out hard enough.
I can guess the reason why you're putting deadlifts first but I recommend doing OHP first and deadlift last (before accessories) as otherwise progression is going to be difficult, if not impossible.
Cut down on the accessories if possible. Also the power clean is an important part of SS, I recommend swapping deadlift on Monday for it.
>>35792815 There is no point in strength at which you should wear a belt. Belts allow you to maintain proper form in heavy sets of deadlift and squats. Pretty sure the hernia bit is broscience. If you can afford one, I'd say go for it but try not to become too reliant on it.
>>35792847 1pl8 is 60kg with the standard oly bar. That is, 20kg on each side with the bar 20kg itself. Thus 2pl8 is 100kg, 3pl8 is 140kg and so on.
My body seems to be completely rejecting exercise, and I have no idea why. I've been lifting heavy and doing cardio regularly for about 7 months, but since a month and a half ago, it's all started going horribly. I used to look forward to working out, it was the best part of my day, and I wanted to do more all the time. But it randomly shifted from rest days being the worst of my week, to workout days being the worst. The idea of working out sounded fucking terrible. Every time I went my lifts went down, my recovery slowed IMMENSELY (I went from feeling almost no doms after a session to being unbearably sore even 5 days after), I felt mentally and physically tired the whole time, and I just wanted to leave. I cut down my volume, intensity, and even took a full week and a half off, but when I went back I was still sore and hated it.
I don't even get endorphins anymore. No rush, just pain. My form is fine on everything, I got it checked, same as it was before, but now suddenly my knees and shoulders are killing me on every lift. Cardio feels tedious and even though I have the capacity to go on, I just can't do it. My body wants to slow/quit at every moment and it takes all my willpower to force myself to not half rep. I eat the same as before, nothing has changed, but I just fucking hate working out. All I want in the world is to never work out ever fucking again.
I literally get suicidal thoughts while exercising or going to the gym. Like, "I would rather die than do this". I even burst into tears after failing a bitch weight squat last week. It was embarrassing. I don't experience this emotional stability in any other area of my life. Wtf happened? Sorry for blog post.
>>35792611 I have been lifting for around 2 years and started doing PHAT recently, is there any issues/anything I should add to it? Is the routine good for building aesthetics? (Link to routine below) http://www.simplyshredded.com/mega-feature-layne-norton-training-series-full-powerhypertrophy-routine-updated-2011.html
Conventionally, the heaviest plate used in powerlifting (and thus found in gyms) is a 20kg/45lbs plate. Some gyms do carry 25kg/55lbs plates for some reason, but this is the exception rather than the rule.
Note that the heaviest oly plates come in 25kg though (red) and this is their standard. I have no idea how heavy crossfit bumber plates go however.
How do you quit sugar without feeling sick? I'm on my 4th day of no candy/chocolate/sugary bread/sweet yoghurt or fizzy drinks. My brain is melting, it feels like I'm having the flu and a tremendous weight over me, constantly. I even have a blurry vision and slightly shaking hands. Mind you, I'm used to eating 150g+ of chocolate EVERY day. Combined with sweetened bread and apple cider to every meal (My family produces it) How likely is it that it's some kind of pre-stage to diabetes?
There was a thread semi related to this yesterday, I was too busy to post but I read through it. I'm a skinnyfat grill who is very low weight (5'3 100 lbs) but I still have a pretty noticeable belly pouch. I've been trying to lose bf but not weight, which is really hard. /fit/ told me (as they said in the aforementioned thread) that if I just ate at maintenance/slight deficit and lifted heavy weights, I would lean out. I've been doing so with HIIT cardio for 6 months, but it just seems worse than ever. I eat around maintenance generally, but I lost ~4 lbs of scale weight since I started, controlled for water weight etc so it's for sure 4 lbs lost.
I'm not really sure why, but it seems like my bf% went up. I lost fat in my ass and tits but I have half an inch more of fat in my stomach, love handles and back fat I never had before, and noticeably more jiggle in my arms/legs. I look bigger despite being a lower weight, but not more defined. I eat 0.8g/lb protein per day, is that too low? What is the issue here? I know girls 30 lbs+ heavier than me at same height with flatter stomachs. I lift 5x weekly (lifts have been going up, nothing special but I am making progress) and do HIIT 3x weekly, sometimes added LISS.
Should I see a doctor? I didn't want to call muh genetics or anything but I've been working so hard and seeing reverse progress. I'm so self conscious I won't wear anything tight or even take my shirt off for any reason. I thought lifting would help me become high test, but I just literally look like I have high test.
So im your typical skinnyfat DYEL. My flatmate has a free wieght set that another one of my friends who is a gym bro and I have been playing around with, nothing too serious. But I really want to lose the beer gut and get a bit muscle, so when the family got together and they asked me what I had been doing, I said I had been playing around with some wieghts and wanted to lift more.
They all laughed at the same time. Literally all of them. My sister, my father, mum dad, all laughed and said something along the lines of "No anon, you cant do that, ahaha that was a funny joke!
Shit really tore me up. Does my family really know best and should I not bother, or should I use this rage as motivation and get ripped.
>>35792697 I'm in a somewhat similar boat. About 2 years. I have about 60 percent strength and it comes back at a nice pace. Just gotta remember not to overdo it as you could seriously get injured by trying to relive your past.
>>35793086 I also have something similar. If I don't a ingest a certain amount of sugar I get headaches and develop some anxiety. I notice this when I attempt to limit my sugar intake and drink a gallon of water a day. What do?
>>35793216 Don't let em get to you anon. It's crabs in a bucket, they all just want to drag you down. Or projection, since they know they would never go to the gym and get ripped, so they think you won't either. There's literally no reason you can't, if you put in the effort with a good routine, you can do it.
Ignore families and friends while getting swole, unless they also go to the gym. People are really ignorant nowadays when it comes to fitness, especially lifting.
On the other hand, it's worth mentioning that sugar IS a drug and does have withdrawal effects. Much like any other drug, if you go through a long period of eating a lot of sugar consistently, once you stop, you will feel like shit and get headaches. If you stick to low sugar, you'll start to feel better after about a week or two. If after that point you still feel very odd without sugar, you really might have diabetes. Get it checked out now if you are constantly thirsty even while hydrated, have poor recovery, are constantly fatigued, or have tingling in the hands and feet.
>>35793189 Post a pic from the side, you could have bad posture (posterior pelvic tilt?) I have it and my lower belly pooches out. I've been stretching my hip flexors every day for about a week and it has helped a little bit already
If you stand flat against a wall, there shouldn't be much space between your lower back and the wall. If someone could fit their whole arm in there, you likely have bad posture
>>35793236 Water weight causes my weight to fluctuate up or down about 6 pounds every day. If it bothers you watch your sodium intake and eat asparagus as it is a diuretic that also causes your body to flush out salt.
>>35793546 Guess it sort of does, but come on man, 2 months of semi serious training? It's nothing. You can't even rightfully say you lift yet. You've barely made it out of new year resolitioner mode. No offense.
Havent been on /fit/ very much in the last year or so, just wondering whatever happened to Supermang
>>35792802 Could try adding "x" caloies/week into your diet for a series of weeks so that you aren't jumping straight in the deep end and it will also help avoid stacking on fat in the first few weeks imo
>>35793216 Been in the same position bro, if you find people react negatively to you working out then try to avoid talking to them about it as it will only hamper your motivation. Definitely don't let people stop you trying to improve yourself though, just keep going and most of the negativity stops once you have a bit of size
>>35793712 Theres no sure fire answers but 100-200 is generally what I have found good in the past (I've never had to drop below 2400 calories tho). Just try to track your bodyweight and judge bf% from the mirror and use that to determine how your calories should change. Just play around and get to know how your body reacts I guess
Yo beginner from 1 month here. My left side is way weaker than my right side, like I can military press at 10kg easy with right arm but 6 is kinda hard for my left arm. Should I ignore it and will it somehow balance itself out? Or should I change weight whenever I swap arm for 1 arm exercises?
How accurate is MyFitnessPal's calorie goal estimate? I'm 5'11.6" and 145lb. I've been cutting for a month on 1500 cals and I'm now beginning a lean bulk. According to MyFitnessPal, at my height age and weight with a sedentary lifestyle to maintain I should eat 2100 cals/day. After adding in cardio and lifting its 2590 So I add 300 cals (for lean bulk) and I'm at 2900 cals This seems like a shit load of food to me. Does that sound accurate to you guys? Basically eating double what I was before
What weight did you start lifting at /fit/? I just started last month, and when I read other people's achievements and realise that I'm lifting not even 1/4 of these people it makes me think I'm not even trying. I deadlift 40kg, squat 30 but can only OHP 10kg.
>>35793216 The hardest part about fixing your nutrition and training is deal with the anxiety of switching your life habits and the response you get from your peers. Get over this and then its so much easier after that. The satisfaction of proving everyone wrong was enough to keep me motivated.
>>35793424 Fasting for 16 hours can raise your hormones but it's not going to make a difference in the long run.
>>35793535 Oats with berries Greek yogurt Protien bars
So I've been lifting a year and hit my 2 big goals, hit 150 pounds and bench at least my body weight. So I'm benching 170 now but I've been kind of stalling on that for a while. Is lmao2pl8 an achievable goal for this year? I'm assuming you start hitting diminishing returns pretty quick.
>>35793747 I also started supplementing creatine monohydrate so I'm just going to assume any weight gain is from that. I know it's recommend to eat at maintenance for a week or two for you metabolism to "re adjust" but is that just bullshit?
>>35793847 Don't worry about it. You will curse your muscles time and time again but eventually you'll reach 1pl8, feel awesome for a few moments, then see the road ahead and weep. But ultimately, everyone started somewhere. [spoiler]I started with double what you have btw, but I was fairly physically active prior to lifting[/spoiler]
My sleep schedule is kinda fucked, and I almost certainly have to go one or two nights with limited sleep in order to fix it. Question is, would it be better (gains wise) to sleep less the night before I go to the gym, or the night before a rest day?
>>35794226 Processed cheese is a wide definiton. It's basically cheese with whey, emulsifiers, milk, salts, preservatives, and/or food coloring added, but the legal definition gives opportunity to alter the cheese base in so many numerous ways that it is very difficult to know what a product actually contain of different additives and what processes the food substance actually has gone through.
It's because of the wide gray area of manipulation that processed cheese is dubious. I can guarantee you that all processed cheese is made with profit in mind rather than health or taste benificialities, so it will undoubtedly do more harm than good in your diet.
I recommend going cold turkey, as you should with any food addiction. After going without it for a while, retasting it will reveal how shit it actually is for you.
>>35795271 Just swap one of your lighter squat session (assuming you've progressed to that point) for front squats.
Front squats are a bit of a pain to do- the limit of how strong you are at it is usually more of how much you can hold in the rack position than the strength of your quads. As such they really aren't a replacement for back squats but are fine as a light weight/hypertrophy exercise.
>>35794979 >smith machine >triggered.jpg Smith machine squats are glorified leg presses.
>>35795505 Reduce body fat + pump when you need it
>>35795530 Women in general are clueless what a decent male body looks like or is capable of achieving hence the love for "ottermode". Regardless I suggest you focus on these groups in the given order- lats, delts, glutes, chest.
>>35796282 You can get pretty lean in as little as 2 months from that starting point if you're focused. Personally I've already started. I like to take it slow and take breaks from the cut every now and then. Also reduces the risk of stalling on the fat loss in my experience. Basically I do a couple of weeks of cutting, then a couple maintenance. Back and forth like that. Makes it seem effortless.
But yeah, 2 months is enough if you just want to be ripped and bulk up again when summer ends.
>>35794856 What sort of exercises should I add specifically? Is there any specific exercise people recommend adding to starting strength? I'm thinking I should add a forearm and bicep exercise. Does squatting hit your calves or should I also add some sort of calves exercise?? Also I'm a fat fuck at 263 so I've been dieting. How badly will dieting cut into my gains??
Doing SS. Currently, I add on a few accessories at the end, eg crunches, curls, skullcrushers, that forearm thing where you wind up the rope, etc.
The thing is, I actually like going to the gym and I don't like rest days. Can I make a whole separate "accessory/cardio" day to put between SS A and B? So it would be 3 days on (A, accessory, B) and then a rest day?
>>35796517 What's usually recommended are dips and chin-ups. These exercises also work your arms pretty well. For a fat fuck like yourself though, those may not be the best options. Instead you can do 2-4 sets of lat pulldowns and push-ups until you've shed enough weight to be able to perform the other exercises. Aim for higher reps on these exercises (8-15). You can also add some stuff for direct arm work if you like, and ab and calf work. The important thing is that you don't let it detract from your 3 main exercises of the day. Those are what will be responsible for the vast majority of your gains, so that's where your focus must be.
>>35792611 anyone got a link to yesterday's /fit/ book thread? It got archived and i had the tab open but my comp crashed. Would appreciate it if someone could post some of the images of good books to read.
>>35796592 Pull-ups obviously. But do them properly: From a deadhang (provided you have the prerequisite shoulder mobility) all the way up to having the middle of your chest touch the bar for a second while driving your elbows far back to almost touch eachother. That's hard as fuck to do, but you won't find a better back builder.
I'm in the same boat, started at 240, currently at 206. I do add accessories. My gains are slow, probably about half of what they "should" be, but the way I look at it is this: Right now, for us fatties, cutting fat should take priority over all else. We can worry about gains later when we stop being fat.
I recently moved to a new city and switched my home gym to my school's gym. I didn't have a normal 20kg bar at home, only a smaller ~5kg bar. I used to be able to load 106kg + bar and do rows with good form. Now at the school gym I did my sets with 85kg on the bar (so 105kg total) and it felt a lot heavier, even though it was supposed to be 6kg less. So today was my first time benching in the new gym and this time the weights felt LIGHTER than the same amount back home.
>>35796783 If you strength is total crap after 3 years it means you've been fucking around on certain programs for a long time, making no gains without changing anything. And if so, that's on you.
That being said, individual differences are HUGE. You cannot really compare yourself to others. Instead compare yourself to where you were a couple of months ago. If things are moving in the right direction, keep going. If nothing's happened, figure out what you're doing wrong.
Do not, I repeat, do not start to blame stupid shit such as testosterone levels for your lack of progress. For one thing testosterone is highly overrated - there are so many other factors determining your results. Secondly, and more importantly, focus on factors that you can actually control rather than finding excuses. As long as you wake up with morning wood, don't worry about your test levels.
>>35794057 https://youtu.be/wIB_X2N6020 The power clean is really easy and actually doesn't put quite a lot of stress on your back. You should definetly do a arm exercise, like chin ups if you need a routine ask trappy >>>35795985
>>35794076 both is bad, not sleeping before the gym will make interfer with your exercises. Not sleeping during resttime will make you not rest enough, thus maybe failing on your next gym day. But there is "nothing" to regenerate from, if your gym day isn't done properly, this leaves the rest day less important
>>35797498 >Go to club already drunk >go to washroom and do coke >dance >find girl that's wasted as fuck >talk to her You can kind of guess which girls do coke, but you have to lead the conversation towards it, don't just walk up and say "hey do you want to do some coke?". And one girls are really drunk and on coke, they lose all inhibitions and they just want to fuck.
I started to lift half way after my 18th birthday. When I started I was around 6'1 at 130lbs (186cm, 59kg) and weak. I casually lifted for the next year eventually reaching nearly 180lbs at 6'1 (81kg, 186cm). But then I made some huge decisions in my life and my lifting came to an abrupt end half way after my 19th birthday. I moved across the world by myself and have been living on a tight budget ever since then.
I haven't touched a weight in half a year and have been eating tremendously less than I had been. It is now 1 month after my 20th birthday and I am back to around 130lbs and weak. Every time I look into a mirror I am disgusted with myself and I can't take it anymore. And that brings me here with a few thoughts.
So to tl;dr it up for you >be 6'1 and 130lbs >lift, eat more >be 6'1 and 180lbs >stop lifting, stop eating, no monies >back to 6'1 and 130lbs
If I begin lifting again will it be like starting from scratch or will my gains be exponentially faster than say for a beginner? Any info I should know of? Any tips on what I can or should do?
I asked in the other QTDDTOTT and its mega slow, anyways. Sometimes I do one set one workout with added weight, then two, then three at the end of the week and repeat. How badly will this affect my progress and gains compared to increasing weight and lifting three sets every workout?
Been on SS for 2 months and now I'm getting gassed on squats, is there anything I can do about this? I can pump out the first 5 then rest 5 but it's up in the air whether or not I can get 5 on the next 2 sets even after all that rest time. I'm huffing and puffing after the first set and even when I pause at the top of the squat to get some extra breathing in just holding the bar at the top of the squat feels taxing.
Squat progression has slowed down due to this. Typically I don't get the new work weight in the first attempt but I can make it on the 2nd or 3rd. Though honestly all of my progression has slowed to that rate
>>35797753 You gained too much anyways 50 lbs in a year? Half of that is guaranteed fat. Aim for a gain of a kilo a month if you're natty, your body can only put on a half lb of muscle a week under IDEAL conditions as a natty. Don't worry about the progress loss, just get back into it. Muscle memory will return in about half the time it took you to get there.
My arms are lagging. Would it be better to only work out arms once/twice a week for a little while as opposed to full body? The way I picture it, more of the food I eat will be directed to making my arms bigger this way. Is this correct or am I retarded?
>>35798263 If you're fit and have a decent face, you can put yourself above about half of the guys. If you're tall that also helps, girls are always telling me they love how tall I am. But it's not mostly just a bonus for girls, don't fall for the manlet meme it's BS, my friend who is 5'6 gets a lot of pussy. Also smell good, dress well, smile, and don't be afraid to compliment girls, they love it.
>>35798359 Try eating more retard. Like really, after YEARS of no changes you didn't do something differently? It's very simply, if you're not gaining, you're not eating enough. Up your daily intake by 100 calories per week until you're gaining .5 to 1 lb a week.
Going to Hanover, Germany at end of Feb for few days, don't speak German, well, very bare basics like hello, and I need to find a gym for one day, with a power rack and barbells. I've searched online, but the only one I've found is a pay monthly thing. Wat do? I'd rather not spend 15 euros for a day of lifting.
I don't suppose anybody on here is German, who knows Hanover, and can recommend a good gym?
>Best friend wants to get into lifting after seeing my progress and wanting to improve himself >Offer him a discount at my gym and to go with him 3 times a week >"nah anon. Friend X has his own home gym with everything there. And it'll be more fun than an actual gym." Should I just leave him to it? I know he is either gonna quit it or fuck himself up.
>>35794030 I'm a different person than >>35794012 and I wanted to mention that literally nobody worth taking advice from will ever describe their stats the same way you did. Always use total weight to describe lifted amount.
>>35794364 Condiments are the worst part of a sandwich. They provide pretty much nothing for you while only making it unhealthy. I'd rather eat shitty meat without condiments than tuna with mayo. Don't be fooled into thinking light mayo is remotely healthy.
Will doing some basic bodyweight exercise hurt my recovery if I am doing them on "off" days. For example, say I lift MWF, would doing bodyweight stuff on T/Th (maybe Saturday, but likely just twice a week) really impact my recovery time?
Obviously there are a few groups I might limit on targeting for bodyweight exercises (such as lowerback) since they tend to recover more slowly.
Or should I just go for it and judge my own progress in the gym?
PS. I am talking about a relatively short session of bodyweight exercies, likely 30-45 minutes top (after warmup).
Shoulder hurts from dips ? or something from last night. I didn't go to the gym today.. Am I a copout failiure or should I take recovery breaks during the week . I've been lifting since sunday. Also had a late lunch today and think i am catching a cold.
If you can't be upright enough to backsquat comfortably, you're utterly boned at being mobile enough to front squat to depth properly. If you had the mobility, you could use it for back squatting and be properly upright.
>>35800232 >Shoulder hurts from dips Dips can work the shoulders. >should I take recovery breaks during the week working out every day is bad for 99% of people. Unless you're Mr. Piano rest days are good (if they're part of your program).
>>35800724 I'm confused by your workout, but i'll ignore that for now. If your that sick, then skip your workout and continue on Monday. Some people will tell you to power through it but really if your that drained your workout intensity is going to suck anyways. You will be fine.
Now, with that being said, if your still sick on Monday then I would reduce this weeks workout if you have to miss a 2nd training day....
For example i'm doing AxBxAxx style workout. I worked out on Monday (A) but got sick Tuesday night (week of christmas none the less), I ended up being majorly sick for 4 days, so I missed my Wed (B) and Fri (A) workout. When Monday came around even though it might of been a BxAxBxx workout, I went back and redid the previous week, redoing the same exact weight I had lifted the Monday before I got sick and resumed as if that week didn't happen.
>>35800839 It's just a full body workout for about 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of cardio. 3 times a week. Intensity is there for me because I'm not very strong, and I can't afford to go to a gym right now.
That being said, I guess skipping tomorrow is the best and see how I feel monday. Thanks!
I have a lower back injury, possible vertebrae damage. My physical therapist says I have poor glute activation because of it, and it's causing me to put more stress on my lower back, causing muscle spasms and cramping. What are good exercises to focus on glute activation and are there any techniques to improve glute activation during big lifts?
are some people better genetically at cutting fat? i started at 220 lbs with 21% bf and am now at 194lbs and still 19% bf, wtf am i doing wrong? i am eating tons of protein why is my muscle leaving me?
>>35801104 shit i hadnt even considered that i could be doing too much cardio, thank you for opening my eyes. can you see my reply here and tell me if you think running 5 days a week for about 2 miles is too much? i thought it was good since i was doing low intensity cardio, slow jog running
I'm looking for a good heart rate monitor that shows your live heart rate and that also keeps a log of your heart rate that you can see later on a computer or maybe phone/tablet. Hopefully one that is not too expensive, I would prefer one with a chest strap rather than a lone watch that gets your pulse off your wrist because from what i can gather they are much more accurate.
>>35801201 well I dont usually do high volume. I did 10x10 of 135 which I can always pump out a set. Just my arms were shaking after a while. Probably stabilizer muscles were prepared. So Im thinking of doing 10x10 again tomorrow or probably 6x10 because of failure with 135. The good thing about 135 is that I can always lift it so I dont have to worry about getting stuck under the bar.
Going to take Ostarine. First time with any sort of PED
I have been reading a lot about Ostarine and there is a lot of information to digest and some of it is conflicting / has left me confused so I have some (maybe basic) questions. I am going to get my blood test before taking this for the first time.
Starting dosage and increase plan for a 160lb male?
What do I need on hand in case of lowered test levels or other potential harmful sides? (SERM, AI, etc)
Any signs of aforementioned low test / sides that I should be looking out for?
Should I avoid anything while I take Ostarine? (Alcohol, any other supps, etc)
After I complete a six week cycle what should I do to maintain / make sure I am healthy?
>>35792611 My brother has never been able to do above 20 push ups because he claims his Biceps feel to strained. We talked about it for a good hour, and couldn't come up with an explanation for this peculiarity.
>>35792611 How autistic is it when a girl keeps glancing at you and eventually your eyes lock on each other and she gives you a smile and you just keep staring with a straight face like a creep? I never smile at bitches
This isn't fitness related but let's not mislead ourselves, we're all here for pussy and a chance at normal life
>>35803202 Just run test instead of something that may or may not work and hasn't really been researched properly yet. You don't know what you're getting into.
>>35804456 "shoulder workout" isn't very specific, but assuming you're talking about shoulder presses/overhead presses, you need to allow your shoulder blades to upwardly rotate, meaning that the bottom tip should rotate outwards and upwards. If you try hard to keep them back then you'll prevent that. So just do what's natural. You need to arch your upper back too (NOT your lower back).
>>35805078 Impossible to say, but you won't be able to grow your arms much without adding total bodyweight. The body likes to grow as a whole. You won't see 20 inch arms on a 135 frame.
>>35805361 The biceps do work as a stabilizer, but as he practices the activity should diminish.
>>35805382 Do not ever under any circumstance go below your BMR.
>>35805872 Depends on what you're doing now. Your maximum recoverable volume will be significantly higher, so if you want to maximize gains, you probably should increase your weekly workload. Just don't overdo it.
>>35806426 Unless you're an incredibly fat piece of shit, do not run such a large deficit. It leads nowhere good.
I workout 3 days a week. Each workout is more or less full body and basically I want to do this: Workout - drink post workout shake - do 30-40mns cardio. I'm cutting. Will this negatively effect my gains/muscle retention?
I've read that it's ok and it's not ok. Not sure what to believe. Doing cardio on the same day as lifting would be hugely convenient due to my job.
What's a good (preferrably group) activity that's /fit/ approved? Don't get me wrong I enjoy lifting, but I'm looking for something a little more dynamic and social to supplement into my lifts. What I'm thinking of is something like Crossfit except it's not retarded (i.e. class gets together, does some sort of /fit/ activity, everyone has a good time and gets a good workout) I was going to try a rock climbing class close to me, any other suggestions?
>>35807438 Simple Question --> Simle Answer Ok. But what do you suggest then? (The only gym near me is more or less commercial gym, so i cant do Power Cleans, because everyone is afraid of falling weigths)
>>35807542 It's fucking exercise. Rock climbing "classes" are not a social event. Crossfit is not a social event. Running races is not a social event. Doing these in a class is not going to get you anything and certainly not supplement your lifts. It's questions that don't deserve their own thread, not questions from a fucking retard.
>>35807635 M8, I never asked for a social event I said social, that means group work. So on my rest days instead of doing nothing, I'm looking for some groupwork. Quit being so bitter when answering a question and assuming the worst of what someone's asking. Christ
NYR fag here, in my 4th week of SS. I've been having a lot of trouble with pullups, what are some lifts I can add to help supplement growing enough strength to do them? I've been thinking of adding Lat pulldowns but is there anything else?
So I'm a skelly and I started doing stripped 5x5 and eating more about ~3 weeks ago. I've since put on ~4kgs of weight, going from barely 60kg to barely 64kg. Am I eating too much/gaining too much fat or is that a normal amount for a skelly who starts eating more/eating appropriately?
>>35811687 just wondering if waiting too long after the shake can hurt my gains, last workout i downed my shake and had to run out on an errand that took a while, ended up not eating anything for a good 2 hours or so..
>>35811726 m8 eating every 3 hours is a myth, max protein synthesis after workout is achieved with like 40 grams of protein on average, make the shake a bit bigger and don't eat for hours and it'll be fine
