If you're under 6'1" don't go skelemode, you'll just look like an easy target.
>don't eat shitty food
when i was dieting, i just maintained a diet of 1200-1500 and made sure i got in an hour of cardio everyday. this is a grill tho. for guys, probably 1400-1700 sounds good. no junk food, no soda. if you're hardcore, cut out all sugar including fruit (i couldn't do it personally.) do all of this, and you're good to go.
Lawl @ 2 or 3 days a week...
Those guys are probably doing 2 hours of hard cardio each day.
I run 10k every 2end or third day and have an INCREDIBLY structured diet and am not as lean as those guys.
I was thinking more for someone who does no exercise atm and drives everywhere. Starting to bike for half the work-week would be an efficient but not to daunting way to shed some weight.
No its not. 40lbs in 2 months is 5lbs a week. thats 17500 calorie deficit below metabolic rate(per week). So if you eat what you need and exercise to makeup the difference, its more than 200kms of running.(1 big mac is the equivalent of running a 10k)
Its just not possible unless you're incredibly overweight(which raises your metabolic rate), have a ton of water weight, and possibly flirt with using parasites.
yup.... each pound is 3500 calories. You need 1500 calories, minimum, to function in a healthy manner.
The math just does not add up, unless you're carrying dozens of pounds in water.
Its fucking pathetic how people can act like gross pigs for YEARS to slowly put on the weight(and yeah, if you're more than 10lbs overweight, you're a gross pig) and then try to fool themselves into thinking they can crash-diet it off in a few weeks.
And heres another bit of harsh reality to make you feel like an even bigger piece of shit: The faster you lose the weight, the less time your skin has to adapt to it, the more flabby and gaunt you'll look.
Sorry fuck-head, but you screwed yourself out of atleast 2 years of looking 'good' because of your lack of will power.
Yeah, when i said 200kms, i should have been clear in thats 200kms each week.
typical person burns 120 calories per mile, and you need to lose 17500 a week... so thats 146 miles each week if you eat to your metabolic rate.
You're joints will explode on the 5th hour of this workout regiment.
You're fucked, bro.
yeah, i dont think you understand what 17500 calories looks like.
You're not going to burn that in a week. You could eat NOTHING for the next 2 months and you'd still not lose 40lbs(and your organs would shut down from lack of energy and nutrients)
You fucked yourself over by being a weak-willed pig, and now you gotta deal with the consequences. Either aim for a more reasonable goal(2lbs at first, then maybe 1lbs a week in the 2end month after your body adjusted) or accept that you'll always be a chunky monkey and work around that.
please help me figure out how to wear clothing that looks good on my body
Look for a TDEE calculator to find out how many calories you need a day, eat 100 to 500 cals under TDEE to lose weight.
Install my fitness pal on phone, set your macros and calories, search for food that fills your macros and calorie requirement, eat that.
maybe that's cuz cardio doesn't shape ur body, it just conditions ur heart & lungs. lol @ the shitty advice here, just drink lots of water, don't be fat, & do bodyweight exercises every other day
Lol, you're a fucking fool. Look at sprinters legs. Look at bike riders asses. Look at swimmers entire bodies.
Cardio build and conditions muscle and burns calories. Take your fatlogic out of here, faggit.
>Hurrr, my life-guru on tumblr told me i dont need to run or swim because i dont smoke. Doing a few pushups is all i need. Lets go eat some gluten-free pizza!
Go die of aids, you're fucking moron.
My current program is basically:
Where A = pull-ups, chin-ups and push-ups and B = squats, calf raises and sit-ups. Is this a pretty comprehensive setup or do I need to more? Also gonna start C25K.
Just to everyone who says it's impossible to lose significant amounts of weight fast, I lost 1 stone (14lbs) in 5 days about a year and a half ago when I got severe flu. Sure I felt close to death and survived by sucking ice cubes, and at the end struggled to walk up stairs, but it still can be done. I didn't eat anything for 5 days straight and drank nothing for 3 of those 5 days.
Oh! And for people looking to gain lean, wiry and athletic bodies, I highly recommend the navy SEAL BUD/S prep routine. It ultimately has you running 30 miles a week with a great deal of calisthenics and swimming. I am in extremely good shape and am often complimented on my body.
I wish a body like Kate Moss
Too bad I'm pear shaped ;_;
I want to put on a bit of weight because I'm 6'5 and about 150-160 pounds, so massively skinny. The qt I'm chirpsing atm even said about how skinny I am (even though she said that's a good thing?)
I also wanted to get my fitness up and start going running because I'm not fit at all and have a weak AF heart. And I'm moving to a bit of a rough city in a few months so would want to be able to outrun people if they start shit
Will I have to eat like a pig to keep up the calories and put on mass while running? I find it really hard to eat that much in a day
Jesus christ, someone who actually knows what they are talking about(>>8325658) explained how its PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE for you to lose weight in such a short amount of time.
Obviously you can drop a few pounds if you starve yourself right off the bat, since the food in your stomach also has tangible weight(Fat delusional fucks like you idiots prob. have 6lbs of cheeseburgers in you right now) and maybe a few pounds a water... but you morons realize that weight comes back when you start eating and drinking again, right?
Honestly, theres so much retarded fat-logic here is funny. I can understand why skinny /fa/ people might have it, because whatever... they're already skinny and what they're habituated to is working(atleast aesthetically. Health-wise is another matter) but to see wanna-be effay people DELUDE themselves is just fucking tragic.
No, you're not gonna look like cole mohr in 2 months if you're a tubby piggy now, and start 'walking and skateboarding' more often. Its just not fucking possible, unless you get someone to physically, mechanically remove the fat from your body.
Pretty easily. Running is one of those things that you eventually learn how to do properly through experience... but if you're like most of the fat fucks here, you'll think you can just jump into a half marathon without any prior training... so not only will you teeter out on the 2nd or 3rd mile, but you'll be destroying your legs and back in that short time.
You realize there are sports scientists and doctors who dedicate their lives to that, right? Are you really saying they're a bunch of morons who know less than you? Running can cause a lot of harm to the body if you arnt properly adapted to it. Spend 1 week doing a 5k each morning without reading up on how to have a proper stride and foot placement, and tell me how good you feel at the end. Also, ignore conditioning your VMO to stabalize your knee...
Hi guys me again
Still looking for legitimate advice, but do feel free to mock!
I wanna look /fa/
>If you're under 6'1" don't go skelemode, you'll just look like an easy target.
On the flip side, if you get hella jacked at a small height, you'll look like you're compensating.
Ottermode is the only mode.
This looks like shit. He looks like a boy not a man. Gotta have a little more muscle than this.
Your growth plates fuse at around age 25.
You will have more spurts of growth until then so long as your genetics allow it. (i.e. you parents are 5'11")
If you are not genetically capable of growing past what you are currently at, then you can buy REAL (must be real, no IGF-1) HGH and since you are not 25, still in puberty, and your growth plates have not fused- the HGH will increase your height. It will also cost you about 20k to run a cycle, even if from a doctor. Insurance will not cover it.
Gay-guy here... he's pretty avg, but i'm into that...
Yup. Heel striking is pretty easy to solve if you just keep saying 'dont heel strike' as you run. Then, after a few blocks/miles/whatever measurement you want to use, you'll stop doing it without having to think about it.
The bigger issue is conditioning your knees. You could have perfect form, but if you try to run beyond what your knees are capable of, they'll start to collapse inward on each stride and you'll feel really uncomfortable at the end of the run, and will be in excruciating pain the next day.
eat more, but make sure it's the correct diet (go look at da sticky on /fit/)
if u eat more make sure that you're also exercising. u should lift weights since ur skinny af so there good chance yo muscles will look all toned and sexy
gud luk m8
Just do the WoW diet.
>play loadsa WoW
>forget to eat
>get skinny as fuck
no eat heathily. you'll just retain water and look like shit if you starve yourself. ever notice how vegans are always thin af? it's bc they mostly only eat things low in calories high nutrition stuff.
im aiming for low bodyfat, but it's hard to keep yourself motivated when you have ugly spots and some red things on your chest. also stretch marks on my hips, like a fucking fat girl, from growing too fast or something, i was never fat.
now im getting some red spots infection, why do i even bother.
5'10" 78kg here. I'm aiming for 1800 calories per day, lifting mon/wed/fri and doing cardio on tue/thur/sat. I only eat for six hours per day and around that all I have is water or black coffee. Am I on the right track for an effay body?
Why on earth would someone with no muscle cut , i don't understand any of that logic. If you're planning to cut atleast get some muscle to hide your horrible barrel ribcage. hit the gym bro, you won't turn huge just eat a deficit and get enough proteins in and you'll gain muscle while still being skinny.
That is 20k just for a legitimate HGH only cycle.
You should not be adding other anabolic substances with the HGH if you just want to grow. Steroids will prematurely close your growth plates and render you unable to gain height from your HGH.
..That is if you were talking about actual steroid cycles.
You could make a basic steroid cycle under $200 without any HGH or IGF-1 if you wanted... but that won't help you grow in height.
What are the best calisthenics to be doing, /fa/? I'm trying to get into better shape in general, so I figure starting calisthenics will at least get me up and working out while I correct some flexibility things preventing me from working other parts of my body.
>Why on earth would someone with no muscle cut
To get a lower bodyfat? Even if you don't have muscle you will look better. And some of us don't want to lift fucking weights, this isn't hard to understand.
20 Box Jumps
20 Lunges (10 each side)
20 Jump Up Step (10 each side)
30 second plank
10 pushups (declined)
10 "fat man" pull ups
chinups until failure
Pause for 5 mins after completing one circuit, then repeat 3x.
my old calisthenics routine was something like
chest dips 3xF
inverted rows 3xF
(lower) (with a backpack filled with rocks)
bulgarian split squats 2x20
calf raises 2x15
wall squats 2xF (idk if that's the correct name; it's the one where back is against the wall, feet much farther forward, then you go down very slowly and hold down at slightly below prallel to the floor with as little pressure on the back as possible for 30 secs or so)
planks 3x60 secs
V holds same as above
Nobody responded to this, and because it's an important topic, I will.
When you run, especially when you run fast, or extreme distances, you eat a metric fuckton of calories. In order to gain mass, you need to be eating more calories than your TDEE. The important thing about lifting weights is that you are tearing your muscles significantly more than if you are running and those calories go to rebuilding your muscles.
When you run, you're really only burning the calories that you burn when you run, you do not get the lasting effect that lifting weights provides, due to less rebuilding taking place.
TL;DR - when you run, you are ultimately reducing your mass. When you lift, and eat a lot, you rebuild muscles which allows you to get big.
>implying bodies do not have weight, and that moving that weight does not build muscle
>mfw I read on /fit/ that HGH for a year won't cost more than $300
Models have disgusting bodies, how is this not obvious? They are suppose to wear clothes like a hanger--as in, have paper thin shoulders and non-existent mass below the neck. For fuck sakes /fa/, lift weights.
I'm 6'1 and 150 lbs. It's sad, really. In high school I was 5'11 and 138 lbs. Auschwitz mode.
I just can't gain weight on a normal diet. I'm going to try eating just fast food for 30 days and see how it goes.
why would you do something as ass retarded as that? Just look up your bmr, add 500 kcal to that and make sure you eat at least that much every day. If you do that for a week and don't gain weight, add 500 kcal more to that. Repeat this process until you start to gain weight. Also, workout (lift) and try to eat at least 75g protein or you'll just add fat and look shit
Runfag here, some people strike their heels (land on them) instead of mid-feet, people don't stretch afterwards or they don't warm their bodies up a little (walk, jog, get joints loosened up) before they start running. Breathing is sometimes terrible as well. Also people tend to run too fast at the beginning, because you see other people run faster than you - they forget you have to build up condition before you work on your speed.
There's lots of ways, basically, but it's easy to learn. And fun as fuck.
>Tfw managed to go from 77kg to 70kg over a few months just by eating less (192cm tall btw)
>Last week I started eating lots of shit again
>Start feeling bloated and look more skinnyfat again just after a week
I need to stop, my skin has also gotten worse (not that it was great anyway). My extremely wide hips and large legs don't help either.
lmao i eat like one good meal a day. its decent sized and i went from 80kgs to 69 rite now.
no excersie either.
i know the whole thing that "will i keep it off?" but like i honestly dont feel like eating much these days
i just had a lot of dedication to not eat at the start but dam i dont even needa try anymore
>tfw 6'2 and 140lbs
luckily there's a niche market of girls that love collarbones and skinny legs :^)
>fat as fatass manlet now
>manlet with loose skin after
What's the point? It's obvious that I'll never make it, making an impression on people or looking attractive is completely out of the question, even if I happen to have a good face and dressing style.
>What's the point? It's obvious that I'll never make it, making an impression on people or looking attractive is completely out of the question, even if I happen to have a good face and dressing style.
>even if I happen to have a good face and dressing style.
How would they know you used to be a fatty and have loose skin from a first impression? Do you remove your clothes as soon as you meet people or something?
Juice is actually one of the worst things you can consume. Its incredibly high in calories and sugar, and has zero fiber. With real fruit, the fiber is enough to satiate you. Without it, you can very easily over-consume.
Even pure fruit smoothies is kinda iffy, since your body can be tricked into thinking its getting less food when its dunk as opposed to chewed and eaten.
If most people *only* drank water, there would be a massive drop in obesity rates in the world.
Haha.hahaha..hah.. why in the fuck.. never mind..under no circumstances does looking like a holocaust survivor make you attractive.. fuck it. This board is full of loons.. I'm going back to/fit..
why is /fa/ filled with the same edgy retards from /b/? One thing to give constructive criticism but to call someone a manlet for no reason and then say being tall is nothing to be proud of is retarted
>except they aren't
Yea that's why i said almost.
>Lots of girls like my body actually
your mother, sister, niece
>how about you post pics of yourself "manlet"
how about no. I posted pics in cbt on fit, go search them.
The fact that you think you look good proves that you are delusional.
It's a high-test thing, you wouldn't understand.
thank you man. I guess /fit/ must have invaded or something seeing as the guy hating on me told me to go look for pics of him there. Probably some beef monkey who looks shitty in anything he wears
I'm not the beef monkey you're referring to.
But are you honestly happy with yourself?
I swear, even teenage girls have bigger arms than you. Your chest looks like a barrel. Clothes can't hide that, everyone notices, nobody likes it.
i am pretty happy. i dont have a barrel chest either because its not rounded or bulging nice try tho.
Still looks like one to me. But that's not my point, my point is that being true skelemode is ugly as fuck. I could flame you more, but I feel like you won't exactly budge. You're too lazy and happy with fucking around, eating nothing.
theres nothing wrong with the sweater which you would see if i had a better webcam. I have better things to do than argue with you useless assholes. Enjoy jacking each other off cuntbags.
Give it to me straight /fa/, are my legs too short?
I'm barely over 6'
Been loosing my hair since the age of 16, buzzed head since last year. I still have hair almost up to my hairline, but I'm not fooling anyone into thinking I've got something to work with
how do you guys have time in your lives for a full hour of cardio every fucking day? don't you have lives?
just watch what you eat. it's not like you're spending that many calories doing some light jogging for a full fucking hour. what a waste of time.
>run a mile and lift 5 or 6 days a week + sports
>eat a lot
>tfw 6'5" 142lb
>not many gains
You guys are lucky. I have gyno (man boobs) and it fucking sucks.
>tfw lost 30 pounds but only a bit from a my chest)
>tfw flat stomach with abs coming along but moobs are still there
>tfw can't wear fitting clothes because it'll just put emphasis on my bitch tits
>tfw no matter how much cardio, calisthenics or lifting I do, my man tits will still be there
>tfw too poor for surgery and heard of various complications because of it
i enjoy browsing browsing 4chan, it's also something i do while doing other shit.
unless you really enjoy cardio choosing to spend a full hour every day doing something you don't particularly enjoy is just insane to me. that's more than a full DAY spent every month just jogging along. think about it.
again it's not like you're burning that many calories in the first place. just watch what you eat and do higher intensity cardio for 30-40 min a week if you really want to push your cardiovascular system.
All the males on my dad's side are short as far as I know, but all the males on my mother's side are 6'+. Could I still grow more at 19? I'm 5'11 so not exactly complaining, but another inch or two would be nice
Not into any of these at all. I wish I could get that "I work at the docks unloading things all day so I am naturally buff, but I don't really work out" look. Instead, I'm just a skinny faggot ;_;
neven seen the inside of a gym in my life... woodworking and welding is pretty much all the workout I get plus I get cool stuff from it like neat furniture, media coverage and blowjobs. chixdigit. it's no secret : get a physical hobby and you won't seem self obsessed
pic somewhere itt
>200kms each week
run 5 days a week, each session 20km (1/2 marathon) more feasible
rest to prevent injuries, rest fully if injury, else counterproductive (might have to rest for 3 weeks straight)
u wot m8
at least 6 months, unless if you get cancer (side effect of terminal is extreme weight loss, could be due to chemo) or a worm (certain parasites will literally melt the shit out of you, again rare cases only, more likely to get fuckd up by disease they carry)
if juice is homemade then it's fine; most of already made is artificial or have waited long time due to shipping and all causing half life of most vitamins and active igrediets to be long gone.
tl;dr eat fruits or make your own jooce
How the hell you untrained skeletons are able run half a marathon every day? I can do 4, maybe 5 kilometers without stops, then I just run out of breath and switch to walking pace. I'm not even fat or anyhting (191cm/76kg is within /fa/ accepted measurements).
>not being 5'3 masterrace
Hahahaha fucking tallfag piece of shit. Enjoy your shorter lifespan and clumsiness hahahaha
shorter people have shorter lifespans as do taller people. the ones in the middle with average height live the longest and 5'10 - 5'11 is the average.
but if you're female and 5'3, you'll live fine
Not that it's a reason to be happy about being a manlet, but there's actually sufficient evidence to suggest that short people have longer lifespans.
Surprisingly I've met quite a few chicks that said they were into that. I don't fucking know how they think, I'd guess it's probably the same thing as guys that are into small tits. She was probably 5'5ish, she's taller than the guy she's dating right now at least.
i'm 5'4, I hooked up with a chick a couple months ago that was probably about 5'10. She definitely had a fetish. It was kinda cool at first having some actually be attracted to my height, but then it got extremely fucking annoying
>anon does it bother you that im taller than you?
>i hope this isn't weird haha i just like short guys
>are you sure it doesn't bother you? i feel like im too tall hahaha
like holy shit bitch shut up
...and normal relationships. If I had a choice to swap to a millionaire celebrity manlet from a poorfag tall uni student I'd do it in a heartbeat
