>nofap 2016 going smoothly
How's it been for you lads
How good is muscle memory? Can you really get your lost gains back quickly after a break from the gym.
I haven't trained in 2 months because of injuries. Waited till I was 100%. If my diet and routine is good how long can it take for me to get my lost strength and size back?
When I started serving I lost like 8lbs or so pretty quickly with all the extra walking and not increasing calories. Put it back on and then some pretty fast without gaining too much fat.
It's definitely easier to regain muscle once you've hit that mark.
why is eating fats bad for you? why are people obsessed with low fat diets? I don't get why people (girls mainly) always go for low fat things because they think it will make them fat. Do they not understand cals in cals out. So why is too much fat in your diet bad for you?
Let us see your before and after progress, lost weight or gains. Let us see them.
I'll start off, I'm 5'9, heaviest was around 170 lbs, before pic i'm 160 lbs, after pic i am 120 lbs, and i am still around 120 lbs. Opinions?
You just convinced me not to cut anymore and bulk OP.
I was the same weight and body comp as you - 72kg at 5ft 9 and I've been cutting for a few months, now at 67 and I was gonna keep on cutting till all my abs came out. You had to keep cutting till fucking FIFTY FIVE KILOS and you still look like a skinny faggot. Bulk hard now mate, do a nice bulk and make dem gains
Pic related is where I am atm... I'm gonna just cut down to 65 and then bulk man.
I'm a uni students but I'm poor as fuck.
I decided to join the gym this year because I'm sick of being that hungry skellington in the class.
I've worked and earned just enough for 7 months of gym this year. With regards to food, which foods can I eat and build relatively notable amount of gain? I need inexpensive foods (0 dollars for protein specific food)

tuna, rice and oatmeal are all cheap as fuck
egg, raw egg who cares
Does your shaft hangs lower than your balls?
Mine doesn't, what can I do?
I'm applying to planet fitness tomorrow. Anyone here care to share some experiences of lifting/working at PF?
most planet fitnesses are shit, but some of them aren't that bad. the one near me actually has a squat rack and nixed the lunk alarm. i still would look for other options if you have them, but going to a shitty gym is better than no gym at all.
Reminder that we live in a country where food manufacturers are allowed to design and chemically alter their foods in such a way that they effectively depress a person's satiety and even encourage a form of dependency from a young age leading them to eat/drink more than they normally would.
Why is this kind of shit allowed? How is the food industry any less evil than the pharmaceutical industry?
But the worst part is I have to watch them do it to a new generation. My neices get fed junk food and my family just argues and fights me when I try and explain why it is setting them up for an addiction.
At what point does it become acceptable to quit lifting? Before you all start calling me a lazy faggot, I still love training my body and want to be active as much as possible, I don;t ever want to feel like I'm 'giving up'. I'm just finding lifting weights at the gym really boring, even when I'm pushing PRs. It's lonely and transport to the gym is expensive and it doesn't exactly get me outside much. I also feel like mentally I've gained all I can from lifting, I now have much greater willpower and dedication, but I want to focus this energy elsewhere. There's lots of other stuff I want to do (Judo, swimming, mountaineering etc) and it feels like lifting every other day is really holding me back from doing these things. At the same time I don't want to lose the progress I've achieved so far, been lifting for about a year and a half now.
So, blogpost aside, are there any activities/sports other than lifting that I can do to continue to consistently build muscle and functional strength?
I don't think it's enough. That's why I want to continue to build strength. I'm just saying that so people don't get the impression I'm a DYEL who tried SS for two weeks and found it too difficult.
OP, you'll pick up these hobbies, maybe stick to them for a few months.... Then stop because they are boring, as all things become as they become easier.
And that will be your life, back to a regular fag.
You guys know the drill.
Is this body (or a bit better) achievable by May-June of this year?
I'm 5'10, 199. Put on 20 pounds in the dirtiest bulk known to man.
With the best trainers, diet, routine available and nothing else to do but prepare? Possibly depending on what you're starting with. That's what the actors do after all.
But for someone who's never trained, has no knowledge about diet or training and no real knowledge about how thei body responds to training? Nah.
Unless you roid.
>If I wanted humor I'd just ask how many scoops you take.
I'm one question away from winning a million dollars, the question is:
What is this guy's name again?
I'm literally obsessed with Mark Rippetoe.
I'm embarking on a 12 week strength and cardio plan in order to lose about 20-30 pounds by summer (might start the 12 weeks over again if it yields results). For daily nutrition, it recommends 1g of protein for each pound of body weight. I'm 6'0" and weigh 280 pounds. Can anyone recommend a good protein powder for a dude who has never taken protein powder before?
I'd love to eat an entire goddamn turkey every day, but I don't think i'm up for it.
When keeping track of my calories and macros for weight loss.....
Does it matter if I have eat low cal on rest/sedentary days, then high cal on active workout days?
Or should I keep my calorie intake consistent all the way through to promote recovery?
Bump because this the first post on /fit/ I've made in years.... Also the sticky only mentions on what to eat based on a linear 1 day, rather, whether to calculate calories based on day to day, or simply overall hours in a week.
Yeah, but say I workout 6 hours a week, I take a break on Wednesday.
Would I calculate the calories based on my activity level on Wednesday? Or do I stay course and eat what I would on a regular training day.
