So /fit/ why do people think bodybuilders are the worlds strongest people? Why is bodybuilding associated with strength at all?
because being strong and fat is like being scrawny with abs.
nobody gives a shit about muscles, unless they can see them.
being able to bench 3pl8 is a lot harder at 8% bodyfat than at 35%, everything else being equal
it isn't that people think bodybuilders are the strongest..
they just recognize their feats of strength as the most impressive, and most desireable
>So /fit/ why do people think bodybuilders are the worlds strongest people?
The general population knows nothing about strength training, fitness, etc. They only see surfaces and judge books by their cover. This is true everywhere, actually. Politics, entertainment, et cetera. There's a reason why movie stars look like movie stars and not lumpy, middle aged housewives.

Tell me about powerlifters. Why does they wear so much fat?
Your body will sustain more muscle at a higher body fat percentage.

I'm 6ft tall and have lost 90 lbs (210 lbs currently ) while lifting and I am honestly tired of permacutting.
Current lifts are 315x4 squat and diddy
190lbs x 1 bench and 125 lbs ohp
I have lose skin so fuck abs. Bulking up to 250 going for bear mode
Pic related. My dyel back. My stomach is gross.
>lose 90 pounds
>plan to gain back 40 pounds
If i were you, i wouldn't start bulking until i got down to like 185 or 190 and i would not go over 210 or 215.
How's that weight loss going /fat/?
Personally I'm down 32 kg since January.
Anyone know of any supplements that help with weight loss?
Good on ya, mate. Keep up the hard work!
Downing one or two full glasses of water after a meal usually allows me to eat half the amount I would require to be full normally. It doesn't get you completely full, but with a bit of willpower you can eat way less and still not feel like you're punched in the gut.
I'm already at a 1000 calorie deficit compared to my TDEE and I work out 5 times a week so I can't really do much more than I am in that regard. I could drink more water though I suppose.
So I've been 5'9" and a stable 275 lbs for a few years now. I've been keeping track of my calorie intake and I average around 2000-2200 a day. I don't work out regularly, but I'm not entirely sedentary either, usually hitting 10,000 steps a day according to my phone.
What's /fit/ recommend when your metabolism is in the shitter? I'm panicking a little because my doctor actually recommended gastric bypass surgery and doesn't think exercise would be enough for me to lose weight.
Pic related because I've been diagnosed since I was 9.
Nigga, thyroid condition does not affect weight loss at all as long as you take your fucking TSH. And that's comming from a guy with a thyroid that's 3 times smaller than it should be.
Working out more will hopefully be accomplished shortly upon finally getting a car. I figure I'm going to need a gym membership to counter not having to walk everywhere anyway.
It seems to have been a factor for me. Even when I was working out 4 hours a week for two months for a college course I didn't lose any weight, just felt like shit all of the time.
How can I just increase my strength but not my size?
I'm happy with my size and prefer dense muscle to puffy one !
I'm doing HIIT cardio and most of my compound lifts are in 4x5 range with heavy volume
Is smoking an effective way to lose weight? what about just chewing nicotine gum?
There is a section about stacking nicotine with caffeine, it is a not as effective EC stack but it will still blunt your appetite and yeah chew gum or wear a patch.
2 a.m. here in Philly. Just pulled a 545 lbs raw deadlifts at 190 lbs, 5 feets 10 incheroonies, roughly 10ish% body fat. Feels good man.
What's your most recent PR fit?

What is this guys name again?
Who else here /winterbulk/?
ITT: rate bulks, discuss bulking nutrition, post progress made since September.
>rate my bulk today
How to I achieve this mode?
Your pic is pretty easy to achieve, in case you have wide shoulders. Do some core workout, some pushups, some chinups and then cut until you are 10%bf or something. There are many people that have that kind of muscle without needing to work out and just need to cut.
Does high testosterone (not even on roids) levels lead to aggression and anger? I had road rage today.
