>>31673855
Once your in, you can't be out. If you stop taking it, your body resorts to using your muscle instead of the creatine as a source of energy in your body, thus removing your gains.

My gymbro stopped using creatine, now he's a skeleton.

I used to squat a lot, at least 3 times a week, at what I considered decent weight for a novice(nearing 2plaet). Recently I've gotten back into lifting, and things are going well except squatting.

The problem isn't that I've gotten super weak, but that I get a serious tightness in my quads when I go down. Today it was so bad I had to stop after two sets.

Wtf is happening /fit/?

Dear pink sad fish, as a grill should i train for strenth or hypertrophy if endurance has always been my natural base? At 225 5'5 from 280. Been keeping reps low and it takes about 2 weeks to advance 5 lbs with random 20 lb jumps mostly in squats and occasionally dls... Loose skin not here yet but i can tell its coming so i need to keep some bulk...

Dear pink sad fish, pls tell me its ok to train for hypertrophy.
>>
>>31675100
Im not this is what I do. Whats the difference if I get all my reps and sets in one day? Im still doing the same amount of reps and sets
>>
>>31675123
3x5*4 is either 12x5 (the most logical one) or 3x20 (more toards hypertrophy rather than strength, I think).

There's no way you're doing 12x20 without dying.
>>
>>31675104
There's nothing wrong with training in the higher rep ranges. All that matters is that you're progressively overloading over time.
>>
>>31675171
also you need time to recover in order to make gainz, which is why I was asking my original question.

Is it worth cutting for only 5-6lb?

Some background:

>be borderline fat/skinnyfat
>cut to skinny/skinny-fat
>bulk up to pre-ottermode

Problem is I never cut all the way down. When I ended my last cut I was still 13-14% bf and now that I've bulked for the last 3 months, the situation has only become worse.

I know the best thing to do would just be to ignore how I feel and bulk. But summer is coming up and this is the first time EVER that I can actually look somewhat decent and I'd hate to have to wait for yet another year to be able to proudly take my shirt off and not feel gross.

>>31675422

I want to curl 150+ lbs no cheats. Is there any particular trick to getting stronger biceps and arms in general, or is it just the typical low rep high intensity plan like for basically everything else?
>>
>be a 6'0" 197lb beginner
>can't bench past 3x5 95lb.
>watched hours of bench articles/videos to correct form including "so you think you can bench"
>tight back/core/arms, arched back, feet flat, "pushing against the bench", bar touches chest, bar goes up/down evenly, so I'm really doing my best to make sure my form isn't shit.
>always stall out on the 3/4 rep on the last set if i do 100lb and it gets stuck slightly an inch off my chest

Apparently incline bench standards are 80% of flat bench, and I was able to do 3x5 90lb on incline, which means I should be able to do 115lb 3x5. Strength standards says I should be able to do 115lb 3x5 as well.

This is happening for a months while my other compound lifts are still increasing. Do I just genetically have a weak chest (38.5" at nipple line)? Can I just increase my weight and start doing 3x4s? Should I keep eating until I'm 210/220lbs? Should I post a video of my bench to make sure my form is right?

I find that working on your triceps really help with flat bench. Things like kickbacks, skull crushers, rope pull downs, and close grip bench. It helps a ton in the push up phase and it helps give stabilization for adding more weight, which will inevitably occur from your omgsojacked tris breh

Best way to increase test and reduce est is lose body fat and not stress too much. Sadly for you it's easier to not stress if you don't have low test.

You can take foods that prevent aromatisation like tonnes of brocolli (tho you're better off getting a DIM supplement since eating that amount of cruciferous vegetable each day is difficult at best)

PUFAs are also aromatase inhibitors http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17178902 As is resveratrol, also is an estrogen antagonist for most or all secondary sex characteristics, but performs the same role on calcium receptors (so keeps bones strong and prevents artery hardening). Statins reduce free test but not active test so again potentially reduces amount of test aromatisation

Make sure you aren't deficient in zinc. Only supp I know reliably increases test production is forskolin

I've been working out for a little over a year now.

However, every six months or so, I get bronchitis. When I was a child, I had a horrible bout of pneumonia and almost died. My lungs have been prone to infection ever since.

Every time I get sick, I'm basically bedridden for a month or two.

What should I be doing in that time, other than getting healthy again? Its very depressing working up to a higher weight, then dropping twenty pounds off all my lifts because I can't breath for four to eight weeks.
>>
Should I bench on smith machine or bench press machine?

Those are the only two options I have.

This is in addition to DB bench/close grip and DB incline

Just do dumbbell Bench

Depends on how you perform the two exercises. The more similar, the better the carry-over and vice versa.
If you use 20 kg dumbbells I'd guess you could do 50 kg barbell.

my ffmi is around 20,9-21,3 according to http://www.naturalphysiques.com/28/fat-free-mass-index-ffmi

i want a physique like pic releated and i'm on 20%-25% bf at the moment.

is there any reason to follow a full body routine? i feel way more comfortable on a chest-biceps, back-triceps, legs-shoulders routine cycled once a week.
>>
My routine is based off SL:

A
Squats 3x5
Bench 3x5
Bent Over Row 3x5
Hanging Leg Raises 3x10

B
Squat 3x5
Standing Press 3x5
Deadlift 1x5
Pull-ups 3x5

c
Half hour of elliptical/exercise bike

AxBxAcc
BxAxBcc

After each workout, add 5 lbs to every exercise for that day, except add 10 lbs for Deadlifts.

A friend told me 3x5 will do nothing for me, and that I have to jump up to 5x5. Is this the right move?
>>
>>31678999
Only 50 kg barbell you sure? Like I said in my post before I switched to dumbbells I was at 55
>>
>>31678983

Really? Yeah ok. I do like knowing how much (give or take, as it is a machine) I could barbell bench tho
>>
>>31679014
if you are a novice lifter 5x5 would produce better result.

also i would consider adding some curls and dips. like, 3x10 curls to A and 3xF dips to B. ignore fatfucks who says "muh funchunal strentk" here, you should add work for your arms.

Ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure m8. It's likely overworking/stress that initiates it.

Anti viral properties of zinc http://www.med.nyu.edu/content?ChunkIID=22181 might be of interest but it's limited. Colostrum can help prevent you getting ill in the first place.

The only difference is swapping out Barbell Rows with Bent Over Rows. Is that going to fuck everything up that bad?
>>
>>31679051
See the only way to know how much you can bench is by benching of course, you'll never now for sure if you are using a machine
>>
>>31679100
It solely depends on his goals. You can't achieve aesthetics with SL w/o accesories.

>The interaction of linoleic acid and conjugated linoleic acid with aromatase mutants expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells showed that these fatty acids inhibit aromatase with similar potency and that mutations at the active site regions affect its interaction with these two fatty acids. Whereas these results suggest that these two compounds bind to the active site of aromatase, the inhibition kinetic analysis indicates that they are noncompetitive inhibitors with respect to androstenedione. Because only conjugated linoleic acid was found to inhibit the testosterone-dependent proliferation of MCF-7aro cells, the physiologically relevant aromatase inhibitors in mushrooms are most likely conjugated linoleic acid and its derivatives.
Those linoleic acids are PUFAs. You need to read better m8.

How is SS for starting out?

I've read the sticky but I'm at a complete loss for where to start planning my routine.
>>
>>31679155
SS is 3x5 from the start and generally considered to be superior to SL. also if you actually look at his routine you can see it's a decent routine since it's a good mix of SL and SS (which are very similar in the first place). if you actually think those minor differences are going to be a factor in that guy's success you're a fucking retard.

>>31679161
Read the book and do as it says.
>>
>>31679157

>>
>>31679161
Both SS and SL are excellent routines for begginers, personally I like SL more, having said that if you end up doing either up those routines remember to add 1-2 accessory lifts to complement them, stuff like Dips and Chinups/pullups have excellent synergy with it

tl;dr: you look like 12%, normal, and healthy

Without looking at the pic: You need to realize that fat calipers can only measure/estimate fat that is on top of muscle and below skin called subcutaneous fat. There is fat that stored around your organs called visceral fat too. This fat, due to its location, is what drives the gut to appear large and leads to the "beer belly" look. Visceral fat is typically lost first or at least more readily than subcutaneous during weightloss routines but it's possible that if you had a very large gut to start that you could have quite a bit left after losing significant weight.

After looking at your picture: You look like you have around 12% I guess. I don't see anything that strikes me as a "gut" insofar as it is not more prominent than a normal, healthy individual. If you are expecting to have a straight drop from chest to dick, you have a flawed sense of what can be achieved.

Depending on your individual sleep patterns you get 4~5 sleep cycles in eight hours. During each sleep cycle you get a growth hormone dump during slow wave sleep. Cut into that eight hours and you miss a GH secretion.

Incidentally this is where the broscience 'eating before bed slows gains' came from. A heavy meal right before bed interferes with sleep cycles and will cause you to miss a GH secretion.

Using light weights to get my form first. I don't hurt during any of the exercises and I don't hurt afterwards. I look funny though because I've had some guys comment on it. Do I just work through it or ?

Might do some assist DB on that side to bring the strength up.

>>31683780
pretty sure they're talking about working sets. Only faggot tryhards go by 1rm

Thanks. Any exercise you'd recommend? Sorry, I'm really new to this.
>>
>>31684746
your left will catch up rather quickly. Lift enough weight so that your form is on point and progress from there.
>>
>>31684877
Just do the DB equivalent for 3x10 on that side after the big lift for the next couple weeks.
>>
I started as a skelly, but now I look skinny-muscled, still thin. should I continue lifting to look "normal muscled" or how do I do it?
>>
>>31684888
Thanks! Also, check 'em.

Greatly appreciated.

got the worst headache and almost passed out from pull-ups.

not being hyperbolic either, I had to run to the bathroom so I wouldn't pass out in front of everyone

That was the first time I ever did pull ups and haven't tried again since.

my mom is joining a gym next week, she says she's gonna get a personal trainer, I said that she doesnt need it

should I just make a routine for her or should i Let her spend however much pt is

Grill wants me to go with her on a drug trip tonight, she's offering esctacy or shrooms and I've been straight-edged for most of my life.

Which ones will hinder me less when I go to the gym in the morning?

So this morning I woke up to blood flowing out of my belly button, what could it mean? It stopped after a while.
>>
>>31674755
Dermaroller and anything that promotes collagen growth, like niacinamide or creatine. Stick both in your bath. Dermaroller is not best suited to linear scaring though.
>>
>>31685277
shrooms

esctacy is less of a committment though

shrooms you're in it for like 4-6 hours

X will be like a 3 hour thing and you'll always feel in control

shrooms you felt like you just went on an exhausting adventure for a day.

either way i always feel fine the next day after either.

>Glycogen stores in the liver can last 24-48 hours, after that there is typically no more glycogen left in the liver to be converted to glucose and the blood glucose may drop drastically, while fat and protein cells will be used by the body cells at a high rate for energy.

Is it really as simple as not eating sugar for two days and then ez mode from there? (granted you can actually eat no sugar for 2 days)

Your body will go into ketosis mode and from there you can eat enough sugar to supply just enough for your brain? (no idea what amount that'd be)

IS STARTING STRENGTH GOOD OR BAD?

i see this asked so many fucking times, i just want some clarification. i'm looking for strength AND aesthetics, and all my lifts are at novice weight.

everyone says SS is terrible. now, i'm not following the original program, and i'm not eating a billion calories a day. i'm maintaining weight, and i'm doing babylover's SS.

am i going to look like a fucked up t-rex after? should i change my program to candito's strength program, SL, or PPL? is that too far ahead, do i need to reach intermediate lifts before i can progress to those? please help.
>>
>>31685561
I've been on this board for 3 years and I don't know the answer to your question m8.
I did SS for like, 4 months before I switched to SL 5x5, and I honestly can't tell which I liked better. Both gave me decent gains, both are very similar. My quads did get huge compared to the rest of me but that eventually equaled out when I started going heavier on OHP and added curlsc, some light core work and weighted pullups.
>>
>>31685561

the original is a good way for an actual beginner to start

yes you will get both stronger and more aesthetic if you don't eat a gigantic calorie surplus

this is really not an issue for an actual beginner -- virtually any program with linear progress and some mix of compound movements around the body will get you bigger and stronger

the only way it can even kind of fail is if you're too mentally weak to concentrate on your upper body press after you squat

How do you know the difference between a "this will damage you if you attempt to complete the rep" failed deadlift and a "I could probably complete this rep if I push through and keep going" deadlift when the slightest tweak under maximum load could break your vertebrae?

Can creatine cause acne outbursts? I never had a lot of acne on my shoulders, but started doing creatine 2 weeks ago, and my shoulders look like crap. A lot of acne. I think it might have started a bit before I started creatine, but not sure. I drink 3liters of water per day.
>>
>>31685714
just gotta feeeellll it out m8, I've never felt as if my vertabrae were going to snap, probably because good form. Keep everything tight, at worst you may pass out. I think people that snap their shit up usually have shit form or are trying to go way heavier than they're supposed to. I wouldn't really try one rep maxes as they're just ego boosting shit, add the 5lbs/week and you'll be doin high ass numbers before you know it
>>
>>31685734
the amount of hormones that are produced from taking Creatine can cause an increase of acne. drinking fruity shit like gatorade and whatever the fuck else can increase insulin levels and once again increase acne.

OHP, elbows to the sides or elbows straight in front?

whatever feels right -- but make sure you are getting your hips forward far enough

sorry bro you need to bulk. you cannot make effective strength or muscle gains while cutting or on maintenence. unless maybe you are on drugs and you have your diet 100% in check

Probably obvious but will Incline DBBP carry over into my OHP and bench?

You're a grill. That's not your belly button.

>>31685714
Prehab. So for back do lumbar strengthening exercises, for shoulders strengthen the rotator cuff. They're always high rep, low intensity exercises so a lot of lifters find them boring or beneath them, but it'll stop your prime movers snapping your shit up as easily.
>>
>>31686222
or bulk like i said

I am currently lying in bed, unable to walk properly because of some wicked lower back pain.

Got this back pain from doing deadlifts yesterday, was doing only lmao1pl8, with good form. How does this happen? Should I drop deadlifting at all and do back extensions instead? Can I progress in squats normally up until 3pl8 w/o snapping my back if i drop deadlifting?
>>
Fatty here, been lifting for 2 months and shifted about a stone and a half. Would like to do some cardio with it, would HIIT after lifting be alright?

I got this horrible stomach flu that's been going around and my appetite is fucked.
I can't seem to keep much down either.
Will I lose my gains living on soup and toast for a few days?
>>
>>31686389
So long as it's chicken soup you'll be fine.
No toast though, too many carbs.
/fit/
>>
>>31686389
you start losing gains after about 2 weeks- a month, I wouldn't worry about it. Try to get some protein in though. (not powder, shits hard to stomach when you're sick)
>>31686298
I'm assuming lmao1pl8 is lower than your working weight? Idk man might've pulled a muscle. Did you keep going after the pain started?
>>
/fit/ My program requires me to micro-load 2.5 kg each workout. When benching 65kg I only managed 1 set of 5 reps, then reduced the weight to 62.5 and completed the last 2 sets.

My question is, should I deload or wait till my next workout maybe I had a bad day?
To be honest my mind wasn't fully focused but I managed to progressively overload on squats.
>>
>>31686457
You're supposed to deload after failing 2-3 times in a row usually. As in 2-3 days in a row as opposed to sets
>>
>>31686492
Oh ok thanks, so I'll try and get 3x5 in my next workout instead of cutting it short and deloading. I'll make sure to eat and rest well.

I have had back pains for a while now, even before i started lifting. Grew in height really fast and had shit sitting position.

I have no idea what my working weight is. I squat 75kg (165 lbs) and bench 65kg. So i bet i can do more than 1lp8 deadlift, its just that almost right after deadlifting i get back pains, this isnt the first time. When i just started out i deadlifted 55kg, then got back pains and decided to switch to back extensions for 4 month, now i have been careful with the weights, but still got wreckd by 1pl8.

Gym trainer says my form is good. And now i had no back pain prior deadlifting yesterday.
>>
I've been working out regularly for the past three months (started on New Year's Day after a long break). Is it ok if I do a week-long break? Will it hurt my gainz? Should I eat as usual?
>>
>>31686610
Hopefully you've fixed your posture then. Have you been increasing your lifts slowly (2.5lbs per day)? and if you're a skelly then 1pl8 might be to high
>>
>>31686719
I only had 2 successful deadlift workouts so far (5 months of deadlifting)
started out with 55kg , next workout did 57kg, yesterday decided its time for 1pl8 (60kg) and got backpains right after.

Im just weirded out by the fact that most of /fit/ boasts about doing 2pl8 deadlift the very first time they come into gym, and my back is so fucking weak.

Auschwitz escapee here, currently 77kg (170 lbs) , 186cm (6'1)

Im really scared of doing deadlifts now, is it reasonable to just switch to back extensions for ever?
>>
>>31686923
I hate to say this but your form might be shit or the weight is too heavy making your form shit.

>make sure the bar is at the middle of your feet, it will look like it's almost at your shins if you're looking from above
>Don't let the bar touch your shins.
>Stance of feet is shoulder width
>Now bend you ass over while keeping legs straight and grab the bar as close to your feet as you can.
>Bend you knees forward until shins touch the bar then stop.
>Look up and bring you chest up, it's okay if ass drops a little
>Then you drag the bar up your legs, and by dragging I mean the bar better be scrapping your leg all the way up.
>>
>>31684823
But working sets vary, some people do 3 reps, some do 5, some do 8 or 10. Which one does 4/3/2/1 refer to?
>>
>>31687884
5
>>
>>31685646

i don't really like doing power cleans, and i'm definitely not confident enough to do them. i prefer babylover's, i just want to increase the 4 basic lifts along with 1 or 2 tricep/bicep workouts.
>>
>>31687827
Hmm, guess i didnt do the shin touching part, i was standing really close to the bar, shoe laces underneath the bar, but no touching when raising the bar.
Keeping my back straight while lifting, checked in mirrors.
Thx for the advice m8

Other than benching, can you recommend some exercises for bigger pecs? And how often should I do them?
>>
>>31688807
Dips, Cable Flies

>>31689019
Are cable flies better than pec flies?
