I'll start
how does /fit/ keep up with gains when sick and unable to vigorously exercise?
>>
>>29683906
Don't get sick.
>>
you don't. you rest until you're better then carry on.
>>
Brah, your gains won't disappear if you take a week off.
Just chill.
>>
gains come and go slowly unless you stop eating. a week or two off from lifting is nothing. even a few months break is usually overcome after a handful of workouts.
>>
>>29683993
don't listen to this dude.
there was some black dude who went to prison, and when he got out 5 months later, he was a skeleton because they had no equipment there.
>>
>>29683906
Dumbshit, you rest and eat until you're well again, then go back to the gym. Attempting to train while ill will just prolong the illness, plus you're being a selfish dick spreading your germs all over the gym. Stay home.

have you ever watched men's olympics? of course not. being flexible will never spoil your gains. ever.
>>
>>29684743

it's tough to say b/c it's very dependent on rest times, total volume etc. always makes me ravenous after doing it though, so that's some indication
>>
>>29684743
I want to know this also, pls someone, answer
>>
>>29684763
as compared to cardio and other workouts id say it doesnt burn that many calories. Not to say you shouldnt still eat afterword tho
>>
>>29683906
Sickbro here as well. Haven't worked out since Thursday. I can't stop coughing out phlegm and feel weak as shit. Hell I can't even clench my fist properly.

Just keep eating like a motherfucker
>>
>>29684743
The actual act doesn't burn that many. Recovery burns a little, but not that much. Less than cardio in a given time.
>>
>>29684743
not a lot. a typical session, 200-300 tops. it's more of an afterburn effect (raised metabolism)

if you want to just burn calories, that's cardio

beginnerfag here

had no problem today with 105 bench press 4x8 but couldn't complete even two sets of 12 for incline bench press at half the weight. the fuck?
>>
After doing a PPL for the past couple of months I've made great gains but I've decided to switch to SL 5x5 on Monday to increase the big 4. Thing is I don't think SL has enough volume. I'm gonna add 3 sets of ab wheel rolling at the end of each workout. Anything else I should add for overall general strength? I am home gym master race, my set is
>squat rack
>bench
>perfect pull up
>oly bar and some plates (gonna buy more)
>ez bar
>>
>>29686042
your muscles aren't used to the volume I would say. When I started lifting I would try doing push ups after all my chest exercises and I just couldnt. After my friend told me to do dips for chest and I couldnt do one of those either. Only way to get past he muscle fatigue is to keep pushing past it.
>>
Is there a way I can squat without weightlifting shoes until such time as I get some? I plan on buying some Romaleos or Adipowers but I just won't have the spare money for a month or more.
>>
>>29686237
yeah, running into this problem a lot. i'm doing multiple exercises per muscle group so after a few sets I feel like death incarnate
>>
Tried front squatting at 45/65 lbs for 5 reps or so each set

My fingers started hurting pretty bad. This was literally my first time trying it so my form probably wasn't all too great (bro tried to help). Will this hand pain during front squatting go away? It's not sore or anything today. Bro said it was probably just cause I never did it
>>
>>29686288
it's sorta like cardio, you run further the more you keep running. Increasing volume will help in the long run, just keep at it
>>
>>29686332
cool. thanks. i wanna make it
>>
>>29686257
either in flat shoes like vans or converse. if you want you can place some plates on the floor with your heels raised
>>
>>29686328
ran into the same problem when I started front squatting. the most common thing is just the act being uncomfortable in itself. fixing it all you do is just keep squatting and it wont be such a limiting factor

on my spare time whenever I remember I use one hand to pull down fingers towards my shoulder for wrist flexibility for a couple seconds and I switch hands
>>
is there any way to get thicker wrists? I have thin bitch wrists
>>
>>29686378
GH

Don't overdo it.
>>
>>29686378
forgot to mention, before anyone says deadlift, I can't cuz my back is fucked from an accident.
>>
>>29686388
GH? growth hormone? what does that even mean?
>>
>>29686378

farmers walks are an adequate deadlift substitute
>>
>>29686347
>if you want you can place some plates on the floor with your heels raised

That's what I was thinking. I just don't have the ankle mobility to go ATG in flat soles yet but I'm working on it.
>>
>>29686391
DLs dont get you thicker wrists but thicker forearms

>>29686405
yes it's growth hormone. if you're in your early 20's with a slight possibility of open growth plates your wrists could grow. but other than that there really isn't anything you can do for thicker wrists but it really isn't that important for general strength training. get bigger forearms and you wont worry so much
>>
>>29686451
if you want to go ATG practice with body squats but instead go heavy on low bar squats. before and after your workout stretch and try getting that ankle mobility, it will come.

Not the same thing but I couldnt touch my toes until I started stretching pre and post workout with toe touches (atleast attempting them). Just takes time, along with everything else
>>
How do I improve my bench, I've been stalling on it for a couple months while my other lift progress well.
Stats. RM
Squat: 100kg
Bench press: 80kg
DL: 150kg
OHP: 75kg (made it today)
>>
>>29686378
Wrist pull ups and wrist curls
Be sure to put tape on the pull up bar
>>
>>29686529
eat at a caloric surplus and just bench more. throw in dips (weighted if you can) and dumbbell bench
>>
>>29686499

I can't touch my toes right now either which is especially bad for me because my arm span is greater than my height (192cm vs 182cm). My left hip joint pops at certain positions too and my shoulders have terrible mobility and strength. All stuff I'm working on though.
>>
i've taken a job where i'm two weeks on, two weeks off. when i'm on i have no access to a gym and not a lot of free time

i've been doing ss for several weeks now and have commensurate lifts. i've found i like lifting a lot. is it possible to keep getting stronger with my odd schedule? if so how?
>>
>>29686160
Rows, reverse curls, calisthenic squats(shrimp and split) lateral raises
>>
>>29684052
five months is twenty weeks, not one you fucking sperglord
>>
>>29686529

how is your OHP so high and your BP so low?
>>
>>29684743
Lifting burns calories, recovery burns calories, maintaining muscle burns calories. Lift bitch
>>
>>29683906
>how does /fit/ keep up with gains when sick and unable to vigorously exercise?
You don't. You lose gains while you're sick which is why you're careful not to get sick.
Anything you do to improve or even maintain gains either draws out your sick time or flat out makes you sicker.
>>
>>29686529

your OHP seems like a push press at that ratio. Try fixing your form for all 4 lifts
>>
>>29684821
HIIT will burn heaps of calories amongst after burn which will be a lot higher too
>>
>>29684458
In track, sprinters are advised not to static stretch because the more flexible your muscle is, the longer it takes for it to fully flex during a movement.
From a literal and scientific viewpoint, you literally lose power from the weight moved over time aspect
>>
>>29686556
I'm already cutting m8, so should I stop worrying about any progress?
>>29686571
I guess is because I used to do only military press last year, until now I'm doing full body routines.
>>29686586
I do it strict press. no help from legs/hips.
>>
>>29686595
Not to mention you actually increase your chance of injury stretching before working out.
>>
>>29686599

sorry but unless you weigh something like 100kg and literally just started doing the other lifts, this all seems pretty dubious. Assuming your form is actually good for OHP, your form is either awful for the other 3 or you literally just started doing them

Skinny fat guy here, I don't know if I should cut or bulk, I have skinny arms and a bit of belly... I'm currently doing my version of "strong lifts" (because I only have a bench and no squat rack), my workout program is something like:

Workout A:
>Squats 5x8
>Bench Press 5x8
>Barbell Rows 5x8
>Some diamonds pushups
>Some bicep curls because why not

Workout B
>Squats 5x8
>Overhead Press 5x8
>Deadlifts 1x8
>Some dips
>Planks

I used to jog 2 times per week but I'll change that to HIIT. Any thoughts? What should I be doing? Bulking? Cutting? Is that program kinda OK?

I feel lost.

I'm 24 and I'm considering getting braces put in.

I'm not sure why they didn't do it when I was a teenager, but my parents are willing to cover the expenses.

>>29687300
>>29687300
They're not that bad, I guess thats why no one bothered to do anything when I was younger. I just don't know how to weigh the pros and cons. I could just see it as part of a bulk/cocoon mode period.

>>29687324
The main thing they would fix are my canines, which protrude a little bit. They could do Invisalign, but it would take twice as long/be twice as expensive/wouldn't be able to completely fix the problem.
>>
>>29687244
Getting /fit/ takes years. If it takes half a year to get your mouth /fit/, and have it stay /fit/ for the rest of your life, I'd consider that a good investment in yourself.

Especially since bulking can take six months as it is, and that shit kills pussy game just as much as mouth gear would. Go for it.
>>
So, I just realized I'm becoming a fatass neckbeard, before hit the gym and getting /fit/, should I start with some exercise routines at home?, I don't want to humillate myself at the gym and look like a rookie.

The idea of humiliating yourself at the gym, while understandable, is illogical. As long as you're doing the compounds, not faffing around on useless machines, and wear gym-appropriate clothing, no one will even notice you're there. No one goes to the gym to judge other dudes.

Consider going really early/really late in the day, though. You won't need to jockey to get at the bench.

So I've gotten a lot of conflicting data on just how much protein I should be eating. The two main numbers that keep popping up are 1g/lb and 1.5g/lb. Some sources say 0.7-1g/lb. So what's the truth?
>>
>>29687734
Depends on if you're cutting, maintaining, or bulking.
>>
>>29687651
No. You're cut is pretty good, but it's winter. Bulk for the next five months and squat. You've got dyel ass legs. Cut again when summer rolls around.

For the record, you look good (no homo), you just haven't made it yet.
>>
>>29687763

Cutting atm until probably the end of the year, maintenance for a couple of weeks and then bulking.
>>
>>29687651

Why does this dude keep deleting his picture?
>>
>>29687734
Same guy that replied first. I generally go off percentages for diet. As for overall protien consumption, bulking can be .8, while when you're cutting your fat and protein have to go up, and protien will be 1.5. Can you get away with just going 1g/lb all the time? Yeah. You aren't competing.
also, my diet percentages. I'm cutting.
>>
>>29687734
>>29687853
Also, here's when I take protien and which kinds. Keep in mind your total daily intake includes your meals. Also, you don't have to use a whole scoop if it puts you over. Don't waste that shit.
>>
>>29687853

OK cool, thanks. 1g/lb is what I'm currently eating. So since I see it in your pic there I'll ask; is keto/low carb hugely advantageous for cutting or is it something that a beginner like myself shouldn't overly concern themselves with? I've lost 35kgs in the last year just eating at a deficit and doing callisthenics+LISS and I think I've just recently dipped under 20%bf which is why I'm getting ready to start bulking with weightlifting.
>>
>>29684282
Strong Lift 5x5 and cardio. I swim in addition to SL. Maybe running is more your thing? HIIT is most efficient way to burn fat. #1 way to loose weight if you're actually obese: halve your caloric intake. you don't even have to work out. just eat less and you will definitely look better over time.
>>
I have the SL app on android. if you pay premium he let's you add in the only two exercises that are worth the time (and are good arm targeting compound movements). under hand pull ups after A and dips after B. body weight until you can hit 3 sets of 10 then slowly add weight. only ever 3 sets.
>>
>>29687937
Keto is used to keep as much mass as possible when you cut. It's also the fastest and most effective. With that being said, it requires the most discipline and hardest to find food for. I do it when I go over my bf% limit (16) and didn't catch it before I hit 18-20. Or, if I need to start bulking again immediately (in the army. can't waste time on cut, need to plan around field exercises and shit). Keto only lasts 3 weeks or less. Until you meet your target bf, or 3 weeks. Whichever comes first. Keep going, nomy friend. Cut to 8. You're closer than you think. Try Keto out if you have enough discipline. You have to, no fucking shit, stick to the plan. If you go outside it, Keto is a waste.
>>
>>29687999

Alright, I'll keep all that in mind. There's more than 3 weeks left before year's end so I may do keto during that time. Thanks for the help, man.

No. You should be doing both anyway.

How do I stay motivated? Beer is very tempting...
>>
>>29688171

No. That's a really fucked up habit to get in to. Just don't do it again. Are you cutting? It sounds like you were just overcome by cravings. You should refeed once every week or two depending on your bf% to restore your glycogen and leptin levels and combat cravings.

Probably a silly question but when you quote your lift numbers do you include the weight of the bar?

If you want to make gains while cutting down BF%, eat at maintainence and recomp.

bar weight always included
>>
>>29688398
Everyone includes the bar. A one plate lift is therefore considered to be 135lb.

Been doing SL for a month and I'm still going up on everything except for my bench. My bench has been stuck at 40kg for a very long time and I have no idea why. Should I eat more? or could it be just a form problem?

could be either, or both.
start counting calories or just eat more and ask someone in the gym to check your form

Im currently having a problem with my recovery. I have only been squatting for roughly 2 months and have been doing a low body routine since I injured my shoulder(AxAx). Every time I go to squat after the 48 rest period my glutes and hamstring are still ridiculously sore from last time. Is there something that can help with recovery? Atm im NEET so I literally sit down all day. Is that most likely the problem? (I did get a bike recently and have tried riding for 30mins a couple times everyday to see if it would help)

iam 5´10, 65kg. If i eat 200 cals surplus, i still get some gains, right? Ive gained some noob gains already. I want to get to 70kg then cut. Any advices? Maybe i should eat at maint and wait until i stall then eat more?

Drink some caffeine free tea, soda biscuits, ginger ale and lots of water.

>>29688920
Don't worry about your weight for the first while. Capitalize on the noob gains you can make, and squeeze them while you can. You'd be farther ahead to not weigh yourself, get your lifts up until they stall completely, THEN cut.
Don't eat at maintenance when you first start. If you're only 65kg, you'd be farther ahead to eat at 500+ and make really good gains. Cutting is for when you have the strength with higher bf%. That's what I'd do myself. I wish I could go back and do that.

My routine goes ABxCDxx, so should I be eating at a caloric surplus too on my second rest day in a row (sunday)?

I feel like this doesn't contribute to recovering my muscles anymore and is just gonna get me unnecessarily fat?

Depends on your goal body. Generally, I'd say yes though. Just don't go overboard on the calories.

I want to buy whey isolate for the first time, but I don't have a clue which one to choose on the product's page. Some sizes seem way cheaper but I don't understand what's the difference that could explain the price difference. Can someone enlighten me?

Is it normal, when you're hovering around the lower teens in bodyfat% (right before abs basically) and you're natty but take creatine, to be rather soft most of the day but the second you start lifting each body part/muscle that gets worked out swells and gets a mean pump, and by the end of my workout I've got abs and shit? Or maybe it doesn't help that I drink a SHITLOAD of water everyday.
>>
It's not OK
Do pure SL with chinups and maybe DB rows, shrugs and BB curls. Instead of back squats do front squats, RDL's and leg curls.

Add shrugs on non-DL days, DB rows on non-pendlay row days, curls on non-chinup days. Chinups on deadlift days.

And get a fucking rack, ASAP
>>
>>29689428
Is 100 kcal over maintenance too little? I feel like 200 would be too much. I'm currently going 100 over maintenance and I keep reading that it's not gonna do too much. Maybe I should raise it to 150.
>>
>>29689943
200 is still nearly nothing. Remember that 7000-8000 calories surplus are a kg of bodyweight. So having 100 surplus daily means you'd gain
one kg over 2 months. Eating maintenance +500 isn't gonna make you fat..

Also eating at +200 is too small of a surplus because you can't measure everything down precisely and you end up either eating at maintenance or at a bigger surplus.

This is life gains and I will answer any question that might be related to this so I can find out what's the issue I need to sort right now.

I am studying what you would call CS with the specialty bioinformatics and genome research.
I like what I do, but I can't believe how much I suck at maths.
The schooling is free so this doesn't bother me.
but fuck. I have a hard time learning the stuff they teach and everything is so academical, like full of definitions and sentences and no number crunching.

I am dreading the math and even when I use khanacademy and solve everythig I need as a baclground (algebra) I forget again how to do it.

How do I get over this procrastination and dread?

Oh and I either tired or I need to piss.
even sleeping enough hours isn't enough....

I trying to man up, try to cram the stuff and learn it, yet it's so strange the way they teach it.

How do I understand mathematics?
I have no idea...

SO i go to gym 4 times a week ~1 hour sessions, at 19.00.
Should i get recovery drink that has 50%50 carbohydrates and protein, or mostly ~80% protein? If i would get the ~80% protein drink i would eat something else with it during the evening.

300-500, seriously don't worry about weight gain, 300 surplus is one pound every almost 2 weeks

What does "overboard" entail exactly? Like over 500 calories?

>>29688035
Squatting below parallel, even if it's only bodyweight, will help unfuck his knees.

Not really. Running does do some glute development.

You're overthinking it. Look at calorie surpluses on a weekly schedule, not daily.

>>29689469
Get the one with the fewest ingredients.

It depends. I'm on a 200+ over maintenance because I'm older and fat goes on fast.

Over a 500 Calorie surplus usually results in more fat gain and minimal, if any, additional muscle.

Wut? But calorie surplus = muscle gain as long as you are lifting well, right? How can an over 500 kcal bulk result in no muscle gain?

>>29690687
Why isn't it possible for you to do SL, because you have no squat rack? You seem to do squats anyway... I'd recommend to stick to 5x5 instead of 5x5. 8 reps make more sense if you decrease the sets, like 3x8.
I'd still advise you to stick to 5x5. The curls are fine, I wouldn't do the pushups, though. Make sure to eat like a motherfucker. (So bulk, don't cut)

work out the muscles you want m8

Maintaining a healthy omega 3:6 ratio seems impossible to me, unless your diet is basically composed of salmon and shrimps or you drink fish oil from a bottle.

This means everyone is far from having said ratio, with people with poor nutrition being even farther away.

Does this mean I really should care that much about it? I mean, I just can't see any way to make it work.
>>
>>29690735
Sorry, forgot to clarify. I can't squat a lot of weight since well, I might fail and without a squat rack that would be shitty. Thanks for your suggestion!
>>
>>29690869
how you pair your macros and how much you overeat/undereat
>>
>>29690960
Get yourself some squat stands then or join a gym. You are doing DL 1x8, too, even though they don't need a rack. Doesn't make sense to me. Same with Rows etc.. So do your squat thing but stick to SL 5x5 for the rest, eat like a motherfucker and maybe add accessories and you'll make it.
>>
>>29690960
>>29691020
And don't get frustrated if you don't change that much during those 12 weeks. Look into the report, the change isn't that big for bulking guys. As long as your lifts go up it's fine, you'll have a good foundation after the 12 weeks to build the body you want.
>>
>>29691016
You are confusing gaining/losing muscle/fat with being healthy/unhealthy.

The kind of fats you eat does have a long term effect on your health. You wouldn't cook with canola oil, would you?

To the other guy: I don't know about butter being specially bad. You might want to check out coconut oil/butter if you are looking for a saturated fat.
>>
>>29691020
>>29691064
After an intense 15 minute googling session I have the conclusions of the scientific community on this subject. Saturated fats aren't totally the worst thing ever probably.
>>
>>29691064
I'm not confusing it.

For example, if all you eat is carbs, that's unhealthy. If all you eat is fat or protein, that's also unhealthy. If you eat too much, unhealthy. Same with too little.

Let's assume you're both eating and working out optimally. You're going to add a half-pound of muscle a week or so. Where do you think the rest of the calories go?

I got to a point where I felt like weighted decline diamond+wide grip push-ups weren't pushing me hard enough (8-10 rep range) so I decided to try out progressing on one-armed push-ups.

Regular 1-arm push-ups were too difficult; could only do 2-3 with terrible form.

Moved on to incline 1-arm push-ups, which was much better (5-7 rep range).
However, that was with my right arm. Much to my dismay, my left arm was much weaker and I could barely do 4.

I think it's because I'm right-handed and I use my anterior delts much more efficiently on my right, than on my left (Which would also explain why my left pec is larger than my left since my left anterior deltoid is lazier than my right one).

So, erm...do I continue with weighted decline diamond push-ups (maybe add more weight?) or do I force myself to do incline 1-armed push-ups with shitty form with my left arm?

My intuition tells me to stick to weighted decline diamond push-ups, but what do you say?

Why do I get headaches after lifting?

You can't have a body like that unless you are 6'5. The reason he doesn't look bad even though he isn't ripped is because his height gives him a very long torso and wide shoulders.

No it doesn't. Your base assumption is that lifting is merely a more intense form of cardio, but in fact the two involve very different muscle engagement and recovery processes.

I fucking love eating cottage cheese by itself. Why does everyone seem to hate it?

Though I am Bulgarian and we eat a shit ton of dairy over here, so maybe that's why I have an orgasm every time I taste cottage cheese.

But bro you might want to try another brand. I eat Goldessa cottage cheese, and it's fucking amazing. I used to eat Tesco's, and it wasn't that good at all.
