/fit/, how i increase my libido?
I've never really had high libido, am i low test?
I am 31 years old, 140 pounds and have 13% bodyfat.
I'm interested in building muscle, body definition. Would a bodyweight program accomplish this task as effectively as weight training?
If bodyweight training is okay, is there a recommended program?
I remember doing
for a couple weeks with the routine taking one and a half hours. Is this time effective compared to weight training?
body weight training is great, howver it takes a long, long time to see meaningful results and increase strength, weightlifting takes far less time and results are significantly faster.
Plateauing on bodyweight is basically what happens the vast majority of the time.
For sure. Herschel Walker never lifted a weight in his life, and he was yoked. That said, you need to take an intelligent approach. Make sure your program has some kind of overload(getting tougher each week), balance(an even split between pulling and pressing), and variety. For legs, do a fuckload of walking lunges, with a weight vest if you have it.
>Would a bodyweight program accomplish this task as effectively as weight training?
No way. Try SS, or any other noob linear programming routine, for a week, and you'll know it's just night and day.
I'm starting a mini-cut cuz i gained to much fat,
any tips and advice?
Pic related my transformation, u jelly fags?
Can I lose weight by starving myself, like my ancestors in Auschwitz?
See, I've gained thirty pounds in the past three months. That's, like, a pound for every three days. I'm now 5'11 and 277.2 LB. I'm incredibly lazy and don't want to exercise, but I want to get rid of those pounds, and possibly more. I know I'm not supposed to starve myself, but the people who tell me not to do that are touchy-feely types who probably think no one should care about their weight to begin with.
> it's unsustainable
> you will feel like literal death
> you will get loose skin
> you will lose muscle
Why not just lift weights + bit of cardio and eat 500 calories under maintenance?
Following the USDA recommendations to consume more fruits, vegetables, dairy and seafood is more harmful to the environment because those foods have relatively high resource uses and greenhouse gas emissions per calorie, say researchers. A new study measured the changes in energy use, blue water footprint and GHG emissions associated with US food consumption patterns.
"Eating lettuce is over three times worse in greenhouse gas emissions than eating bacon," said Paul Fischbeck, professor of social and decisions sciences and engineering and public policy. "Lots of common vegetables require more resources per calorie than you would think. Eggplant, celery and cucumbers look particularly bad when compared to pork or chicken."
Burn it all down.
It's the only way to save this planet.
Nobody eats their required energy intake in celery or lettuce.
If the numbers were about a balanced vegan vs balanced meat-eater diet, I'd wager the environmental impact would be less for vegan diets.
If you're going to feed you bacon-piggy lettuce only, it would be pretty bad for the environment too. And for the piggy
>tfw shoulder pains every few months
I'll never have cannonball delts. Kill me
Tell me about your injuries /fit/
gain 20lb in 6 weeks
always been very skinny
Used to be very good on a bike before it got stolen so strong thighs
Now because I can leg press/extend so much, and because I'm lots heavier than I used to be I've got runner's knee and it won't fucking leave
>dips are the shit man
>explode your tris and chest man!
>can't move shoulder for months
The bar width not being adjustable didn't help either. I've just cut them out completely and learned to live without them I guess.
Sometimes I still feel pain in my shoulder, dips feel like they permanently fucked up my shoulder. Shoulder truly is the worst place to injure, the most aesthetic muscles all need it
/fit/ does this pants make my ass look fat ?
>tfw stuck at same size for at least a year
>looked much better lean
>bulking (even slow) leads to fat gain around abdomen and barely any if at all strength gains
>fucking kill me
Pic is from a year or so ago
Pic related is most recent lean pic I have, right around July/August
Is learning to cope with hunger an essential part of cutting down from being a fatass?
Tell me about your experience /fit/, does hunger eventually stop?
ITT: we discuss our progress on SS. Are you bulking or cutting? How are you numbers looking? What are you switching to once you're done with the program? Etc.
Pic related is 5 months of doing the lifts while on a deficit. Right pic was taken today. Left pic was day 1.
I've always been checking with /fit to make sure I'm doing the right thing with my diet. Most of the time I've been told to cut, and on some threads I'm told to bulk. My cut these past 5 months has been more of a half-assed one. As in, I don't really count my calories...

Nice progress. Lifts?
Switched to Texas Method after a mild back injury done fucked up my linear linear progression gains. Going high bar atg instead of low bar might have something to with it as well.
>That is, for natty lifters at least. Instead, we should be lifting while on a small surplus and playing it all by the mirror. Can anyone here shed some more light on this?
Pretty much what I do. If my numbers are going up weekly, I maintain. If they're going down, I eat slightly more.
How long was it before people started noticing your gains?
I wanna get a head start on my New Year's resolution of becoming more fit and building some muscle while losing my gut.
I really only wanna tone up and look good naked, I don't care about powerlifting competition or anything like that.
Any other guys who're in the same situation as I am around? Any good routines to follow?
I've looked into it but as I said I'm not gonna start powerlifting so the entire squat/deadlift/bench thing isn't what I'm after.
My gym has a bunch of great machines that I'm planning on using, alongside with the cardio equipment
No /fit/ grills thread? Cmon guys!
Mental health and stress thread
I'm 25 and have been in upper management and executive roles since I was 19. This has come with many benefits but the down side is stress a lot. Stress has a lot of negative effects on the body and can shorten ones life considerably. I watched a ted ed video the other day that really outlined the negative effects such as increased risk of stroke, increase in body fat, cells dying quicker than they should and slower healing.
Let's talk about tips to handle stress, because I don't want to work my ass off and be rich just to die at 50
