Good IPA and pizza. Pizza is bad enough but when my favorite beer is close to 1500 calories for a six pack there is no way to look good unless I'm active for at least 8 hours a day which is unreasonable in college.
I've cut out booze and eat under my BMR and have started running and in a few days I've already noticed the beer weight melting off.
Can't really look good and be and alcoholic at the same time unless you've got genetics which keep you naturally lean, I've found. At least not without a super active lifestyle.
Hey guys, didn't see one in the catalog so I thought I'd start a Cardio General. Discuss anything cardio related here - running, jogging, swimming, cycling, rowing, etc.
Thought I'd start off asking you all a question:
So I've been into weightlifting for a few years, but am now trying to get into more serious cardio training. I played sports in high school, so I consider myself a somewhat proficient runner already, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't overdoing it. For the past few weeks, I've been running 5 days a week, sometimes 6....

Bumping with my second favorite cardio exercise
Damn, these threads sometimes get a lot of traction around here. Anyone got any runs or rides planned for the weekend? If you had to pick one and only one type of cardio to do for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
How long should you train for one of these for someone whos semi regularly active and not overweight
YOu don't need to train for shit
>everyone runs in the beginning
>starts walking not even a mile in
>everyone helps each other on obstacles
>damn food and water every half mile
it's a glorified walk
I just started doing lateral raises and i can comfortably do them with 10lb dumbbells but once i up the weight to 15lbs i feel this pain in my right anterior deltoid. It feels like im moving against(strumming?) two large rubber bands before the movement is complete.
I just bought a lacrosse ball, should i just take a week off and just try to rehabilitate myself?
Can we get a motivational fitness poster thread going. Also useful pics in general. Thanks
Just started working out once a week

B-b-but he doesn't have a six pack and 8% bf!
/fit/, I don't wanna squat three times a week.
I'm already very naturally T. Rex as it is.
legs don't grow forever. they grow a lot initially then stop. if you're already t-rex they probably won't grow much at all, though honestly when beginners say they have big legs it's almost always fat legs
They're both, big and fat. I used to sprint in my teens and stop because of a hernia injury, got a gf, got married, started a business, etc, etc.
Honestly, it's not even so much that I'm afraid of getting even more T. Rex (though fitting in my pants is pretty nice) it's just that I don't know if I can handle the volume of a typical beginner routine.
I do something like this for pullups but on the side of a wardrobe
how fucked am i?
After doing Mixed grip Deadlifts I can barely do Pull-ups or rows because one of my biceps is always weak as fuck the next hour. Should I stop using Mixed grip or is this normal?
You need to make sure both your arms are completely locked out. As you get to heavier weights there is a real risk of bicep tear or tendon damage or something if you don't keep your supinated arm straight.
Why would you even lift mixed grip if you have these concerns? Is it one of those things where you can pull more weight and feel stronger and show off at the gym?
If so, stop that shit and dl like a normal person for gains.

I just bought a pair of Power Perfects and today was my first workout in them. Im 5'10" 158lbs and do lowbar squats. I was able to squat 210 lbs in my NB minumus but I couldnt do 185lbs with PP. They felt a lot heavier and i had to drop down to 155lbs. What the hell is going on, I thought this shit would help me sqaut more ( altough i felt particularly weak today for some reason so that might also factor into this).
Should i just stick with the shoes and progress from 155 or just stick to squatting in my NBs? I do feel more stable as in my knees or ankles dont buckle.
Lowbar works fine with raised heels, you just have to give it time. Takes a while getting used to the change of having a block under your heal. In a month you will be back squatting your old weights. The heels will make it alot easier hitting depth.
