Is mixed grip still natty? What if I use chalk?
No sorry. As soon as you use mixed grip, a squadron of /fraud/ will parachute down screaming LIGHT WEIGHT and inject you with creatine and semen and you lose your n-card.
pretty rare, so long as you make sure to keep slack. Hook grip gets kind of painful at heavy weights
Greetings fitizens, it's been a long time.
My body currently looks like pic related, except for one difference. I've been lifting on a deficit to cut my bf some, but my ass has somehow managed to get plumper. I do kickbacks, lunges, squats every other day, and yet my ass is going in the direction I don't want it to go.
>inb4 big butts are nice
I want a smaller butt.
My ass is disobeying my efforts. What am I doing wrong here?
Is marijuana usage conducive to muscle gains, assuming a proper lifting routine and diet?
From my own anecdotal experience, I've found a spliff before a workout is quite helpful in allowing me to focus on the muscle contraction and really push that weight up. I get the most sore after workouts while under the influence of marijuana, however, this may be due to the drug itself and not the workout.
This thread happens everyday, and I'll sum up what each one of them comes to:
>If it helps you and you see gains, then use it
>Smoking anything can cause cancer in the end
>Vaping it lowers or eradicates that risk
Now please never make weed threads again. Hell, there should be a weed section in the sticky.
Is cardio essential to end up lean when cutting?
cardio is the simplest way to raise your TDEE
higher TDEE => more food => faster metabolism => faster recovery/healing
higher TDEE => same deficit is less of your total food => easier cutting
2000 kcal TDEE w/500 kcal deficit => 25% reduction in food
3000 kcal TDEE w/500 kcal deficit => 17% reduction in food
only way cardio sucks is if you don't eat
huge deficits from cardio alone is fucking insanity
Hey guys, I've been really having awful shits and gas the last couple days. The only thing in my diet that's changed that much is me trying out soy protein in my shakes. Is this stuff known to cause that kind of indigestion or did I just fuck my shit up from something else?
You guys didn't warn me about the jaw gains I'd be getting from eating oats. This is ridiculous. I feel like I could chew titanium into a pulp.
Hit a new pr on deadlift and bench today guys!
I know its not crazy but Im feeling pretty good today.
ITT: Hit any new PR's today /fit/?
lol im actually gonna go out pretty soon, just felt like sharing ya know?
>tfw it's a rest day
RATE MEE hi, i like working out but i want to have chickentuna's ass and legs but keep my tiddies.
Rate me /fit
ITT: We discuss our weakness foods.
I'm a little bitch for doritos and tostitos cheese dip.
Heavy, meaty, and starchy classic American meals like pic related.
I don't get to attached to shit like chips, and the only sweets I really appreciate is fancy chocolate every few months.
>i don't have discipline: the thread
inb4 nobody ITT makes it
> You must build a strength base before progressing to an aesthetic routine
You start on a full-body beginners routine to make the hypertrophy workouts viable later. There's a reason you see skeletons doing sets of 8+ reps, and it's not because they haven't been working out long.
Alright /fit/, real talk here.
Get out and start taking swing/salsa dancing lessons. Ideally both.
I just got back from a night out at a combined dance event and had the time of my life. I left with three numbers and spent the evening with dancing with gorgeous women.
Seriously, it's a great way to fix that terrible autism you have, put your gains to use, and it's just straight up fun.
Just make sure that before you go to lessons:
-Be well groomed. Don't wear a fucking suit but looks presentable, that includes a flattering haircut, well fitted clothes, and a shower sometime prior to going.
-Communicate if you don't have any experience dancing, but express eagerness. Everyone is there to have fun so this should be pretty easy.
-Just keep going and practice. Sooner you start the sooner you'll get there.
We're all gonna make it brahs.
Yah, I attest to this. Excellent opportunities if you're open and try to enjoy yourself instead of just impressing others.
I don't even like dancing but went with my fiancee. Wide range of women there who are all pretty eager to practice and have fun with whomever. Had some girl shout out an invitation from across the room. If I had gone alone I could have danced all night without having to ask a single person to the floor.
