I've heard so much conflicting information on this. Can anyone clarify this for me?
Links or at least anatomy based explanations would be appreciated. Yes or no answers aren't very convincing.
I searched catalog and the FAQ for shit about meal replacements/soylent.
I've moved to drinking Soylent with my meals which I supplement with hard-boiled eggs and cliff builder bars for additional protein. I've gained ~10-15lbs (bulking) in ~4 months since I have started this diet. This seems a little bit high for the average .5lbs of muscle per week. Anyone else mixed bulking and soylent?
TL;DR Soylent. What's your experience?
OP here, If anyone is curious... 2-2.4k of my daily calories are from Soylent and the rest from hardboiled eggs and the occasional cliff bar. I range between 2.5k and 3k calories while maintaining a 100% DV balance of vitamins and minerals.
I'm going on a "diet" in the next 3-4 days, and I wanted to see if you had any good recipes and maybe if you could direct me to an actual "diet plan"..
Right now I'm planning on just eating a lot of baked chicken, some beff, and a lot of veggies.
I'm not a huge fan of chicken, but I've had some damn good chicken before. I have no idea how to start to season baked / roasted chicken. Could anyone throw some recipes at me?
With veggies, I'm mostly looking at carrots, cauliflower, zucchini, cucumber...

Am I doing these right?
I've never done then but I want to start doing about work to assist my deadlift.
I've been going to the gym for many years and I still haven't made a single friend.
I think the problem is me.
What's your excuse for not being able to rest in an atg squat?
Keep your heels grounded. This holds true for heavy squats, bodyweight squats, casual Grok squats, poop squats, and Indigenous People’s Stretches: resting all that weight on your toes, as opposed to your heels, places far too much stress on your knees, and the resultant shearing forces will tear your knee apart, given sufficient time. Of course, if you’re playing a sport like volleyball, staying on your toes allows better reactions and quicker movements, but that’s a totally different situation. In all other...

Sit back. I’ll say it again because it’s so crucial. Squatting isn’t just sitting down; it’s sitting back, which spreads the load and creates a more manageable center of gravity. If you were to “squat” down and not back, your knees jutting way out, all your weight would be borne by your quads, and you’d probably topple over onto your face. At the same time, an inexperienced squatter attempting to sit back for the first time might topple over onto his or her ass. In a casual, weight-less squat, these issues become less likely to manifest, of course, but sitting back creates a more stable base and promotes good habits for when you do pile on the weight.
Hint: Imagine there’s a short chair just behind you and sit back in search of it. Or, better yet, use an actual tiny chair, stool, or anything that will allow you to reach the proper depth.
Squatting may seem completely natural (because it is!), thus rendering a “How to…” guide unnecessary, but you’d be surprised at how easily unnatural bad habits can disrupt our natural tendencies and instincts. Read through the tips and hints, make sure you can perform them correctly, and practice your weak points. Even if you’re confident and comfortable with a few hundred pounds on your back, give it a quick run-through. The squat movement figures into our lives on a daily basis, and it would be a damn shame to do it incorrectly.
What do you think of MSG? Is it true that it fucks with your metabolism/hormones to promote weight gain?
I moved into an apartment that was built in the 1920s and has non-standard door frames. As a result, the chin-up bar I have now doesn't fit.
I'm looking to get one that goes directly into the doorframe like pic related. I need it to hold up to 200 lbs.
Do any of you guys or gals use one? If so, which one? This one on Amazon has good reviews: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012I4NSMM/ref=s9_simh_hd_bw_p200_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Wouldn't overtraining be common in boot camp, especially for Navy SEALs?
No progress to be seen.
I don't eat enough. I can't.
I'm 120lbs right now, and I went to a chinese buffet with a freind yesterday. He's 141lbs, for reference. Both of us are 5'10.
He literally ate twice the stuff I did.
I'm so fucking weak you guys, it's laughable. Even girls eat more than me.
What should I do to drastically increase my appetite?
ON Serious Mass + whole milk + olive oil + pb + banana. drink that shit and track all your shit on myfitnesspal. youll probably throw up a few times but youll stretch out your stomach and eat more over time
Pic related is me after 1 month of getting /fit/. Previously was a skinnyfat MMO playing borderline autist. My question is this:
With my current love handles and just...well...fat, should I focus on bulking or cutting first?
You have nothing to cut into but you also have a lot of fat to lose.
It depends on your priorities.
Do you want to be strong? Or presentable naked?
The choice is obviously yours and in the long term, doesn't matter too much.
So my general strategy should be to eat a fuck load of protein while staying 500 calories under my TDEE while continuing to lift until I'm satisfied with my fat loss?
Also what can I do about low energy from eating less calories?
Honestly, how long will it take /fit/ to realize that Caladan is the treasure of this board?
Only tripfag that has any idea what he's talking about. Cute Tomato isn't fit to wring Caladan's compression shorts into his samefagging mouth
>inb4 he's dyel
I honestly have no clue how big he is but he consistently pops up with helpful advice actual non-broscience and you can't argue for one second that isn't what this board needs more of
ITT we praise our king and shitpost about the other worthless tripfags
