Don't see one, lets get this shit started.

Noticed during cardio that my calf started hurting but it was only the right side of my right calf. Is this normal or what?

If I've done an EC Stack before, do I have to ween myself back into small doses or start normal dosage?

Okay this is a stupid question but I honestly don't know this. If i have a can of beans that is 400 grams, with 240 grams of that being beans, what is the nutritional information on it about? It doesn't specify there? Like it's just 100 g = 53 kcal , 5,3g carb , 4,4g protein.. If i eat the whole can, do I multiply the 53 kcal by 4 or 2.4 ?
>>
will juice shrink my peepee
>>
>>35942096
4. The rest is just brine but I'm pretty sure the nutritional values on the label are the weighted average of 160g brine and 240g cooked beans.

How can I tell if chest pain is from DOMS or from heart problems?
>>
>>35942273
uhh dont think doms pain would be as severe. is it sharp pain?
>>
>>35942273
DOMS is in front of your ribcage, where the muscle is. Your heart is on the inside of your ribcage, baka. Also DOMS should get stronger when you flex the muscle in question
>>
>>35942283
Yes
>>35942293
The entire area hurts and I can't distinguish inside from outside atm. Every time I use the muscle I feel tightness in my chest which also is a sign of heart problems. The tighness is there all the time, not just when I flex, but DOMS also hurt a lot, so Idn.
>>
>>35942312
Could be doms or could be angina or some shit. Go to the cardiologist if your really worried. I had to do it a few months ago when I noticed heart palpitations, it's a pain in the ass but worth the peace of mind.

I'm working at home lately and I've noticed this decreases the amount of movement in my day, this concerns me most in relation to rest days, when I feel I'm noy doing shit. My question is: would it make sense to impose a rule to myself that goes like "Every time I drink a glass of water or a cup of coffee, everytime I go to the toilet, everytime I raise from my chair I do a set of something between pushups, pullups, kettlebell deadlifts, kettlebell squat"? I mean, I know this would not substitute a real training, but is there a value in a lot of quick sessions of something spread throughout the day?
>>

Could someone form check my squat and give advice as to how not to turn it into a good morning squat?

I eat below my caloric intake for 2 weeks now and yet my weight remains the same; I haven't lost a pound. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

I've decided to try loading/deloading/loading on my lifts and I've seen a pretty big improvement. Is this a legit method or am I brosciencing myself?

No, not at all: I know that this is nothing compared to a training session, just curious about the possible outcome. I would just burn a really small amount of calories, right?

https://www.t-nation.com/workouts/2-times-a-week-for-twice-the-gains

Have you ever tried it?
>>
>>35942991
>is there a value
Yes. You won't grow a shit ton of muscle, but it will help your overall health, burn a few calories and improve your sleep. It might also improve your movement patterns for your real workout, since what you're doing is essentially spaced repetition. But all of that only works if you put in the focus and the effort. If you do it mindlessly, you might mess up your form and injure yourself. I do something similar and it's a nice habit to get good focus.

Is foam rolling supposed to hurt this much?
It feels fine at first, but when rolling over my calves for more than 5-6 times after a run the pain just gets worse and worse until I have to stop cause I can't bear it.

>I eat below my caloric intake
I'm guessing you mean below your daily expenditure (TDEE)

>my weight remains the same
If your weight stays the same, you're eating at maintenance by definition. Eating below your TDEE doesn't mean eating below the number a TDEE calculator gave you. It means losing weight.

Weigh yourself after your morning piss/shit, before breakfast, once a week at the most.
If you don't lose weight in 2 consecutive weeks, reduce caloric intake by 500. Repeat as necessary.

Do you do tap and go deadlifts or do you let the weight settle on the ground first? and do you bench til your arms are parallel to the floor or tap your chest?
>>
>>35943135
It's called deadlift cause you lift a dead weight. Let it settle.

And you tap your chest on bench, but don't let it bounce. Rest it for a second.

I installed a pullupbar in the doorway to my kitchen. Every time I entered, I would do a number of pullups, which I increased by 1 rep per week.

My autism made me go from a PR of 12 to doing 20 reps erry day.
>>
>>35943135

DEADlift

Meaning the bar is totally stationary when you commence the pulling movement and your kinetic chain is in a state of relaxation (Not in an eccentric movement) Touch and go diddlys are for pussies and bodybuilders (Which a synonymous)

Bench press means that you will lower the bar to your chest, touch your chest (no bounce) and then push the bar back to the starting position.

If you touch-n-go deadlift or only bench to parallel, you are no better than the curl bros.

> If I had a dollar for every time I've head "Yeah dude I bench like 300lbs" even though they they don't squat or diddly becuz "Back/Knee problems" then see them bench and the bar barely goes parallel.
>>
Every time I try to do a back squat, I get sharp pains in my lower back the next day. It's reminiscent of the time I hurt my lower back on a trampoline. Is it because I'm performing the squats wrong? I think I might be bending too much at the waist. My torso is basically doing a good morning while my legs are squatting sometimes.
>>
>>35939438
Do seasonings count towards your macros ? Does cutting your hair short prevent balding or stimulate growth ?
>>
>>35943318
Your attitude is funny considering the fact that any good bodybuilder will bench with a much larger ROM than any good powerlifter will. A bodybuilder will always try to increase the ROM while a powerlifter will try to reduce it (via arching his back and taking a super wide grip)

main negatives are reduced energy, libido, and cognitive abilities if you do it long term. it's impossible to get enough fats and micros.
you won't lose muscle as long as you train it, eat enough protein and aren't close to natty limit, or 10% bf.
unless you're obese, then -1000 is fine.

Literally all of them. I've read a study that showed even subjects who only ate McDonalds got all vitamins they needed. Just make sure to eat meat, fish, other animal products, veggies, and fruit. If you cut out one of these completely, you might have to do some research to avoid missing something.
>>
>>35943501

Various vegetables, nuts, berries. Some red meat or spinach for iron if female.

But if you feel good then you're fine.

depends what your goal is, if you're bulking, stick to 1gr per pound , if your cutting it might be beneficial because you increase your insuline sensitivity and stay catabolic longer
>>
>>35943933
It's pointless, it costs more, is harder to eat enough on a bulk, it turns your shit into diamonds if you don't eat enough fiber, and it can lead to kidney stones if you don't drink enough.

Obviously the powerlifter will distinguish between training technique and competition technique.
They won't cut the rom as much as possible to build muscle and get stronger.
>>
>>35944164
>the powerlifter will distinguish between training technique and competition technique.
Absolutely not. The Principle of Specificity demands that the powerlifter trains his main lifts exactly as he would during competition. He'll do other variations of bench pressing to build muscle, work on weak points and avoid over-use injuries, but there is no difference in technique between competition and training the regular bench press (with the possible exception of the pause at the chest).

So i was thinking of changing up my diet a little and moving to a more carb cycling diet. How do you recommend the breakdowns while training 3 days a week. I usually do 3 lifting sessions a week (MWF) and do 3 GPP days with Sunday being more of a relax/off day.

Obviously I want to have more carbs on training days, but can you properly deplete muscle glycogen with just one day in between? Or should I instead do something like...

S-Low Carb
M-High Carbs
T-Low Carb
W-Medium Carb
Th-Low Carb
F-High Carb
S-Low Carb

Thoughts? What protocols have you tried that you like? Is carb cycling worth it?
>>

Build a bigger back to keep proper form.

Do a proper bodybuilding program focused on back for 3 months, you'll be amazed how not being an awkward twig can benefit your squat form.

No, seriously, you look very, very awkward under that bar, like you're having problems keeping the bar on your back and you're holding it in place with your hands.
This will lead to wrist problems in a few years.

Just get up and run.

You don't need proper shoes or clothes to do a fucking sprint.
Once you do that sprint, you've done something.

You can either run some more sprints right there, go home and change, then run some more, run two sprints tomorrow, run twice the distance tomorrow, or I don't know, think of some shit to best your former self.

Once you start, it's easy to continue, because there's a nagging voice in the back of your head.

>>35944768
>In particular, when I'm doing a glutes bridge, I feel it in my knees almost as bad as in my back.
Focus on putting your back muscles under tension. You should feel it in your glutes and back, not in your knees.

>Also, a standing pike, is it supposed to stretch my upper back?
No. Your upper back should be relaxed and straight.

Question....

Let's say in the morning you cook bacon, log the macros/calories in something like MFP. Then later in the day you are going to cook something (let's just use chicken as an example) Instead of adding say olive oil or something else and use the bacon fat/grease to cook it in, are you adding more calories back into the meal? Or since you have already counted the calories and macros from the bacon at the start of the day does that take into account that?

Obviously this is semi-hypothetical, I see nothing wrong with a little olive oil if its fitting your macros its more of curiosity.

I've just started a new job,it requires me being at home, VOIP meetings and spreadsheets. I might get 5-15 minutes to myself every hour or so, would I be able to make gains while doing a very spread work out.

9:45 - 3x8 OHP

Yes, but the ROM is shorter for your arms, and they work your core muscles a lot more.

So I've just tried out Candito's 4 day Strength/Control program and while I've seen great lower body gains on it I struggled to improve much with its upper body programming to the point where most of my upper body lifts are an entire strength standard below my lower ones.

I'd rather get a more balanced strength profile than see my squat and deadlift numbers shoot up while my bench struggles to keep up.

Right now I am doing stronglifts. I feel comfortable with all of the main lifts, making progress every week and I am enjoying the overall program. However, i've been wanting to add the accessory lifts but I find myself having to hurry through them if I do them at the end of a workout. I am a pretty busy person and I try to find about an hour a day for physical activity/training.

So what I am considering doing is moving the two accessory workouts to there own day, combine them with some ab / mobility work. Right now I am thinking Tues/Thurs or Tues/Sat.

If I make take 2 days to dedicate to other exercises (besides squat, ohp, bench press, deadlift, rows) what other areas/exercises do you think are worth doing.

Right now I was thinking dips/chinups. Some basic core work (planks, spidermans, hanging leg raises, etc). Maybe a little bicep isolation.

These would be work I do at a home gym, not at a regular gym so I don't have quite the same access to individual machines. But I do have things like dumbbells, ez curl w/ enough weights for things like curls or skullcrushers, fitness bands, etc.

any other recommended exercises to add to these days?

Yea, dont add days. Just do them at the end of the workout. If you can't take an extra 20-30 minutes to do the accessories, then just self-terminate. In all seriousness though, it would probably fuck with your progression on SL once you get to some heavy weight.

it will fuck your progression down the line.

if anything only add reps to the last workset of each exercise.

if you can do more than 10 reps on the final set, you can increase the progression x2 (So adding 10 pounds instead of 5)

outside of that, you should stick to the program until you can no longer progress on the lifts.

Instead of a bunch of extra excercises, just do chinups 3x10 on monday and fridays and dips 3x10 on wednesdays. Trust me, the chinups will help your biceps loads, and the dips will make your triceps and chest blow up even more. If you really want the extra pump, when you are done those accessories, just grab a barbell and curl it till failure.

You should make sure and do your mobility as much as possible. I do it after my workouts and on sunday nights if I am feeling bored.

These accessories should take you no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

>>
>>35947529
I didn't explain it very well, its simply not a matter of wanting to do extra exercises its a time constraint. Right now my workout takes ~60 minutes (+/- 5 minutes maybe) to complete. That's counting warming up / warmup sets.

I can't spend more time (on a given day) to do more working out. I can go to the gym other days (Tuesday/Thursday for example) but I can't spend more time at the gym on MWF.

So basically what I seem to be getting is that if you can't do the accessory work on the days you lift they aren't worth doing on another day, so its just best to cut them completely.

I simply have other responsibilities that prevent me from spending more then 60 minutes at the gym (per day). I can spend 5 hours a week at the gym but I can't split that up into larger groups of time then 60 minutes on anyday. So for now i'll simply cut them.
>>
>>35947595
Are you counting your calories?
To answer your question bluntly, yea you can eat a bad meal a day. Its not idea, but you can do it.

>>35947621
fair enough. You can probably do chin ups and small exercises on an offday. But you gotta be careful about what exercises you do. Incline bench is obviously gonna fuck with bench and OHP. leg press with squats etc. You can do a 'hypertrophy day' in between your strength days but be mindful. If it starts to make it harder to progress then drop it. I have always found chin ups to be fairly safe.

That's one of the reasons I asked about accessories being done on off day in a non-gym environment. I can go to the gym on those days and do accessories but right now with my current schedule is I usually take my kids to a local park on T/Thr/Sat.

While at the park I can easily get in some sets of chinups, dip on parallel bars and get cardio chasing them around. I will also usually do ab/core work while im there (hanging leg raises, etc) since they play and I just sit on the grass or bench.

There's a biiiig difference between "can" and "will" cause injury. If done correctly, neither should be a huge issue.

On the other hand, neither exercise is mandatory for muscle growth. No reason to rake them out if they aren't causing trouble though.

>>35947408
One potential issue with cutting on TM is that it's usually a good idea to keep intensity high on your lifts at the cost of volume.

When in doubt, try to maintain weight on the bar when in a deficit. Having your sets/reps take a hit is preferable to losing intensity.

>>35946659
Yes.

>>35946622
Yes.

Whole milk, any sort of nut butter, oils, fatty cuts of meat, etc. are all calorie dense foods that are easy to add in.

No, you're not wasting it. Digestion isn't a linear process for food, and thinking there's a "max protein per meal" falls into the same caveat of reasoning that "food eaten right before bed gets turned to fat" does.

Satiation is a different story though.

I need to do push-ups /fit/

I've already burnt out my muscles for today and I've been working on my pushups but i'll give some background info. (Also, general questions that don't deserve their own thread)

So i'm looking to join the military, i've lost around 50 lbs so far following scooby's advice and READING THE FUCKING STICKY here on /fit/ and it's all helped me make it to my goal that i've finally reached.

However, I can't do a single fucking pushup. I'm doing a lot of exercises to build up the muscles required, but I would like to know about how much time i'm looking at before I can actually crank out 3 proper form pushups. I don't want to be the loser who doesn't make it past basic because of the pushups and miss out on the graduation ceremony I promised my mother I would attend.

I need to get an idea of about what time I should schedule to head into basic training with my recruiter, i'm still overweight so it will play a part in addition to gaining muscle. Basically I need to know how long it will take me to be able to push an additional 50lbs with my pushups. I can barely push 100lbs at the tiny ass gym that is in our apartment complex, and I have almost no money. So far I've been doing girly man knee pushups and using the chest machine down at the gym. They don't have any free weights before someone shitposts about it.

Stats:
6'4"
218 lbs

Seeing as i'm still a fatass I can't put on any weight, otherwise I wouldn't bother posting here. I wanted to get some second opinions from /fit/ since I have no friends, co-workers, or family aside from my mom and dad.

My meals consist of 3 Nature valley granola bars a day, 2-3 16 oz purified waters, and 2 scoops of muscle milk protein shake (I know, shitty brand but it's all I could afford and I was retarded when I bought it).

Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to maximize my muscle gain specifically for pushup performance?

Bodyweight stuff is at /asp/ now.
Almost no one left on /fit/ knows even basic stuff about bodyweight fitness anymore.
And "how long will it take me to achieve X" is a question that no one can answer for you.

Just keep cutting that weight, and since pushups are very low intensity, do them as often as you can (like right now). Aim for at least 10 sets to failure per day, and keep trying the harder variations until you can do a proper one.

Hey guys, I am skelly trying to gain weight, but I am on a mountain biking team. We have one and a half to two hour practices twice a week and sometimes do races which is about eighteen miles as fast as you can. I am doing starting strength, but I'm still in high school, a senior though, and although I eat a lot, I don't eat enough due to only being able to eat anything significant during lunch, which is typically pretty low calorie anyways because school food is shit. I eat a lot at breakfast and dinner though. I'm doing starting strength and I am wondering two things. First, what should I do on my off days? Am I supposed to not workout at all? I mean I have to go to mountain bike practice, but the other days? Also, how much cardio should I do? Is the biking too much(if it is I cant do anything about it until the season ends), if it is, what is the ideal amount of cardio in terms of running? Also, because of this biking, I know I need to eat more, but how can I eat more in high school, when lunch is either some sandwich from the school with a shit ton of lettuce, two pieces of meat and one slice of cheese on a hot dog buns, or pizza or enchiladas, all shit? How much should I be eating a day if I am 511 and 150 lbs?

Is cellulite the same thing as fat?
>>
>Meaning to give blood
>It interferers with a gym day

What's the best choice of action here? I lift on a M/W/F routine and for some reason these blood donation sessions are really hard to come by.

I'm 0- so I'm leaning towards donating, potentially saving a life, and having a day off from the gym.

If it was your only source of nutrition, maybe. In the scope of a balanced diet, no.

>>35950062
Just take a day off and eat heartily. One missed gym day with a donation won't interfere with growth.

>>35950032
It's fat pushing against the connective tissue matrix, giving it that dimpled look. The disposition to have it pattern that way is different from person to person.

Losing fat may not get rid of cellulite completely, but it'll definitely help reduce its appearance.

>>35949377
Keep in mind anabolic steroids and corticosteroids are two completely different substances.

>>35948967
Depends. If you've taken it before or have a decent tolerance of caffeine, you may be able to jump to the working dosage.

The effect lasts long enough that you don't have to take it immediately before a workout. I usually time my doses so that I take my first one around when I get up, the last one around 3 PM or so, and the second one evenly spaced between the two. Taking any doses later in the day keeps me awake at night.

I did some deadlifts yesterday with pretty poor form (cat back) and now my upper back hurts a bit. It doesn't hurt a lot, i can still do heaps of shit like lift heavy stuff, run, etc, but its just a mild ache when i bend over in a certain way. Should I be worried or will it just pass eventually?

>>
>>35950513
Okay, cool. Is there anything i should do to help it pass, like avoiding deadlifts or specific stretches?
>>
>>35950523
Well i feel like mobilising helps.
If i had to guess i say that the tightness after the "heavy" lifts restricts the propper movement of nerves and vertebrae.

By mobilising i mean: Yoga movements and stretches executed gently, like the cobra.
Or the one where you are on all four and alternate between rounding your back upwards(like in a hyperextension) and downwards(like in a curl).
Apparently that one helps getting fluid and nutrients back in the compressed disks between vertebrae.

Hello, friends

If I have a workout where I'll be doing both compound barbell exercises, OHP, squat, etc. And dumbbell stuff, lateral raises, tricep extensions, etc.

Should I do barbell stuff first or dumbbell stuff first? Does it not matter at fucking all?

Pls no bully.

Dido on this also curious

Okay so I know that your body can only absorb so much protein at one time. I was wondering if it is counter productive to eat a large meal and then drink a protein shake about 30-45 mins after. Is your body able to make the most out of that shake or is it still dealing with the meal from before?

e.g. I ate a double steak chipotle bowl and then pounded a mass gainer about 40 minutes after (bulking here)

Buy Tupperware.
Then cook everything for a single week or more in one day.
>>
>>35951501
buy some tupperware and start making more than you need when you make a meal. Dont worry about separating it into different meals for different days. Just make enough that you can always grab a quick meal whenever you are hungry. My fridge is pretty much always loaded with already cooked chicken, beef, turkey and veggies/other assorted healthy sides. I spend about an hour cooking every 3 days so I dont have to do it for 20 minutes a day. Super fuckin easy man. Thats the first step. Next step is putting individual meals together in separate containers but fuck that.

If you get enough protons in your diet from lean meats then you don't need supplements. If you aren't counting calories/protons then how would you know if you're getting enough or not?

I've started hitting the gym last week and I need to add about 1000 calories to my daily intake according to myfitnesspal.

I currently eat 3 ~500 calorie meals a day and that has kept me pretty full. Cereal in the morning, ham sandwich and an apple midday, and usually ill microwave some rice and chicken for dinner.

I've tried peanut butter but I dislike the stuff, I don't think I could eat 10 teaspoons every day. What would be the best way to do this?
