I'm considering taking on P90 (the easier one, not the X variety). Haven't worked out properly in ages. What do you guys think about it? Anyone try it? And if so, what were the results? Thanks

It's pretty good, the 5.7x28 is preferable over the 9mm Parabellum but both work just as well unless the target has some form of body protection. The bottom side eject is nice and the recoil is practically non-existent

Alright fam real talk I need opinions

I can set the NJ State Record Bench Press for Raw Teen III division of USAPL in August
Currently it's only 300. I can hit right now 305 easy as fuck with full commands, no wraps. 315 is slow but doable on a good day
The catch: I need to drop to below 264lbs to compete in the weight class below me. Currently I don't know my weight but I'd say somewhere between 295-310
I also would need to keep my current strength or get stronger while cutting for it

Is it worth the chance at a state record? The cut isn't the issue it's 3 months away, it's the risk of fucking the rest of my totals and something else super important that I can't remember because it's late at night

Don't commit to the cut if you're afraid of losing strength in the slightest. I don't care what everyone else is saying, keeping strength in such an aggressive and large cut would be nearly impossible to do without taking drugs. Also, don't hop on gear if you're going to compete in a drug tested powerlifting meet because that is retarded.

PS you spelled my name wrong

While I am afraid of losing strength, I feel that if I do it correctly and split my work days between strength and rep work I'd be fine, worst comes to worst I pussy out after a month and still have a month to unfuck myself. And I wasn't going to take anything, was just going to do a standard less calories/more rep work type deal with extreme care given to choice of food like forcing myself to survive on turkey and yogurt for the next 3 months with a bowl of spinach as dessert

Hop on a keto diet and stick with it, you'll lose the weight. As for the strength just take 40-60 mg of oxandrolone every morning and you'll be fine. If you have to get tested for drugs I suggest you don't take it the morning of the test.

You could do it but you'd need to be at a daily deficit of  about 1700 until the big day give or take. Currently you probably need 3000 to 3200 daily but that number will go down as your weight goes down.  You'd be losing about 3 lbs a week which is doable but extremely aggressive given that the max recommended is about 2lbs. Losing the weight in that time frame is definitely doable but keeping your strength would require a professional tier nutrition and exercise regimen.

It's implied that the deficit includes those adjustments (whether it's from activity or food intake), it is an energy budget after all. How the deficit is achieved is ultimately up to him but that doesn't mean the the laws of thermodynamics stop working. That's what it would take, he could average it out over time but if wants to drop that much weight that quickly his caloric intake has to be reduced by that much. Macronutrient adjustment is what I meant by nutrition regimen, but a calorie is a still a calorie whether it comes from carbohydrates, lipids or proteins

I think you can do it. If you work hard and smart enough, it shouldn't be a problem. I'd say that it is hypothetically possible that you even gain strength on the cut, as long as you do it right.. I think people mostly have issues maintaining strength when they're dropping from already low bf%, like 14%-8% or whatever.

I think if you cut down now, you'll be happy about it in the long run, and I think you can hit that record, too. Even if you don't, I think you'll still be glad that you cut.

I would not reccomend. Maybe if you had a coach. Your 1st meet is a huge learning experience, youll already be nervous as shit and you dont need the pressure of a state record over your head. Ive also never had to cut more than 7 lbs for a meet, so I have 0 1st hand knowledge of cutting decent weight before a meet.
Btw I live 5 minutes from that meet and alot of my friends will be competing, so ill be there.

30-50 lbs is obviously doable in 3 months, and if you go slow and keep the weights heavy, you probably won't lose too much of your total, and you might even gain strength in some areas. The problem is that if you go slow, you may not make weight. If you lose too much too fast, you might lose too much strength. Obviously you know all this, so I'll just say that if I were you, I would definitely go for it.

Hey guys, first time posting here first time in general but whatever , and I need help making a workout program since my weight training class requires it and I have no clue where to start with it and when I try to I end up deleting it all worrying itll lead to overwork/imbalances. Only requirements are 3 days 10 to 12 exercises per day and it needs to include bench, squat, pullups, and dips. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look up starting strength. Do that as the base and priority.

Since class requires more, add in some assistance exercises (front squat, dumbbell bench, individual bicep,tricep, calf work) at higher reps and there you go

I've never really taken good care of my teeth.

In 2013, I got my first cavity, but I thought it would go away soon - as I never had one, I didn't think much of it.

Fast forward to early 2015, I have four cavities, but they started hurting.

After a few weeks, they no longer hurt, but my teeth would continue to decay, and I just didn't care enough to take care of it I brushed my teeth every few weeks, but that's it .

This year, I sort of made it a regular thing to brush my teeth when I had access to water - the place I'm living at now has no running water.

I need dental advice... will my teeth be removed? Are they just going to fill it up? Am I going to get a root canal?

They are going to x-ray your mouth and find more cavities than you think there should be. Then they will draw up a treatment plan where they most likely drill a bunch of your teeth and fill them with amalgam (silver or ceramic) Silver last longer/ is cheaper/ is more obvious, your call. You'll also get a tooth paste that you'll need to use for a long time with extra fluoride. It's only gonna get worse if you don't take care of them.

I've had trouble keeping it going, and I believe it's because I'm doubting the efficiency of my work. Now that I have a trainer with years of experience guiding me through, both with the training and diet, I'm confident I'll get results if I work with him by my side.

In general, you may need a gym buddy, or just someone who can help you get going. Lifting alone is great, but doing it with someone else is even better; someone to keep you going. It isn't someone you should rely too much on, though.

Also, think about what you want to look like by training. It can be anyone; an athlete, a fictional character--just someone you can look at, who makes you think "I want to work hard so I can look like that in the near future". Never forget your goal.

Those are my two cents. Take them as you will.

Not looking to boast or anything (I'm fat, ain't nothing to boast about) but I am genuinely curious.

I'm male, 180 cm (5'9), pretty broad build, 87 kg (191 lbs)

Now, my lumbering fatty ass can run 10 km (6,2 miles) in 45 minutes. I was under the impression that this was OK to decent but I'm hearing that some people struggle with running like half that and even finishing. I don't run frequently, I don't even really frequent the gym.

Have I just been hearing dumb shit pussies who can't force themselves to keep going when they get tired?
Any fatty of similar weight that runs faster/slower/similar?

Any advice on how to lose even more weight?
I'm taking strong no salt, sugar or bad fats in my diet.
Taking thermogenics after first meal and 4 cups of green tea everyday.
Still taking (1 scoop because 2 give me nausea) Nano Vapor as preworkout and Iso-100 from Dymatize as iso protein.
If I don't take any of the other I take Mega Men Multi-Vitamin two capsules for my joints.
I feel like I just need to do 20 or 30 minutes more of cardio and that'll be it.

I've personally kicked pre workouts and cut my caffeine intake to only a few cups of coffee a week and an energy drink if I really need it. I'd keep using it until you finish your cut and then try cutting back so that you lose the tolerance. Once you go back to any stimulants, they are soooo much better.

Copying a post over from some different forums. Would love some Sherbro's opinions, even if it's mostly fitness goals here and not sport training. The drive is similar enough and I respect quite a few poster's here's opinions


So yeah, a little down here and wondering if I should continue. It seems everything the last 3 years has been conspiring against me to get consistent gym time in and improve to the point of taking some mma fights. Shoulder injuries, commitment issues, family life, ect. I'll be in for 2 months a consistent 3-4 days a week then something will happen and I'll average once a week for a few months or need to be out 2-3 months fully. I'm only 25 and it seems I get hurt every 3 months and every 3 months life tanks. I'm probably only consistently training 4 or 5 months each year the last 2.

Recently, it was a work project going horribly wrong and needing 24/7 engineering coverage. I got stuck on 12+ hour nights (5pm til around 6am) which kept me out of the gym 6 weeks and then I was back for a week still planning on just going to and trying at the no-gi sub only tournament I'd signed up for a week from today, when yesterday I blew my knee and may have torn my lcl from what my coach saw. Waiting til Monday to save on the emergency room bill to get it looked at by a sports med doc. Goofy outer turn and I heard two pops and it seized up on me. Had to had my girlfriend drive me home because I couldn't do the clutch on my manual.

Now it's got me thing on this Saturday morning of even if it doesn't need surgery, should I take some time off and see if I truly miss jiu-jitsu? Take a summer here off and spend more time with friends (which I feel are lacking in this town), I'd have more time to go fishing during the week, being more active in the church, grabbing beers and going golfing, maybe just enjoying life more?

Wondering if anyone else has voluntarily taken 3 or 4 months off, with the notion that they'd see if they wanted to come back after that season?

Edit: I really enjoy Bjj and the boxing/MT I've been working this last year. I have a strong desire to have even just a couple mma fights. I love working towards that goal. I'm just wondering if there's anything to say for stepping back from a passion and goal and seeing if the desire still burns as strong when you think about getting back to it?

That's a tough situation man, personally if I was in a similar situation I'd continue training, because training is an outlet for me and helps keep me sane. I have maybe 3 hours of free time any given day to do anything I want, and I make it to the gym every day unless I have something super pressing I need to get done. I highly doubt that your life will continue to be as hectic as it is now, and stopping the training will only set you back for when you have the time to start back up.

You would probably be able to continue after you have time to recover, you'll just have top start back slowly. Make sure you do a lot of physical therapy, it does wonders.

I don't know about stopping entirely. Life gets in the way for me a lot, but I think about fighting every day. Its more or less what I live for. I dislocated my thumb in a boxing match last year, and that had me out for a few months. During that time, I worked on cardio. You won't be able to do that, but upper body weight training could do you some good.

A break might not be bad, just make sure you recover. Do whatever makes you the happiest and what you can live with

Get one of these fuckers. Chuck in some oats, whizz that shit until it's fine. Crack in a lot of raw eggs. Don't try this if you live in a country where salmonella is a thing. , then top it off with milk almond, dairy, coconut, whatever floats your boat.

This shit is delicious, and packed full of vitamins and protein. Not to sound like a libfuck hippy, but the fact that it is 100% natural is a lot more appealing to me. Downside is you have to store it chilled, so not good if you're on the move.

I want to get in shape and I'm not really sure what to do? i'm 152cm tall (roughly 5 feet I think???) and range between 110-120lbs. currently I'm probably 116lbs? but within the past 5 years I've not dropped below 110 nor gained more than 120 so I'd like to think I'm stuck in that range.

I don't want to get super beefy, just toned I guess.. I have a gym membership but I've never used anything aside from a treadmill and one of those stair climber things before so I've no idea what to use or how to use it

help?

alright so I've read a little bit in here and I've seen a lot about dieting as well as to not be so vague when asking for help

my diet consists of canned veggies, mashed potatoes and whatever mystery meat we have in the fridge bc my dad's deployed and my mom is out of state for work 85% of the month every month. I'm unable to get a job as the only place that hires under 18 in my town is not currently hiring so my mother gives me $30 a month for whatever extra food I want aside from canned green beans, corn, and the spooky wonder meat in the freezer, until I turn 18 (august). fortunately, everything I've seen is about protein and veggies so I think I'm mostly covered there.

as for getting "toned".. I think I'm just looking to work on the arms/tum/butt/legs area... I guess that's still super vague but I'm currently a limp noodle with a mildly notable layer of pudge on my legs, my stomach and my sides... and I lack any sort a defined ass. any sort of public physical exertion generally requires me to explain that I don't have severe asthma; I'm just severely out of shape. I need to fix that and I'm not sure how.

Step one is to sort a decent, high protein, diet.

If you're doing that and working out consistently you will achieve what you want.

i live in the us of a

whatdo about raw eggs? I read somewhere that thoroughly washing the shell (before you crack it obviously) removes a great deal of salmonella risk but I'm no health expert at all and very gullible on top of that

Pretty sure US eggs are pretty dodgy, I live in the UK.
It's a shame, cause if you're on a budget, this is just about the cheapest way of getting protein in. Pretty sure you can buy pastured eggs, or just risk it

I've never had issues with eggs here. I usually get my own farm raised eggs though.

So after not having really used my muscles in months and going full out last Wednesday, my limbs have been in great pain whenever I move them ever since. I didn't feel any actual pain during the actual training, but when I woke up the morning after, so I assume it's just beginner soreness. Because of this, I've had to be pretty inactive for a couple of days, although I've still walked around from a couple of hours a day because of voluntary work.

Is it a good idea to give it a few days' rest after the first day before resuming the training, and should I expect it to get as bad after the next session? I'm thinking my muscles just have to get used to actually being used, but I'm not sure if they get a hand of it after only the first time.

Try finding a structured workout program for beginners and start light. Stronglifts 5x5 and Starting Strength are two of the most popular options because they're simple, effective and have so much info on them around the internet. By starting light, you're going to slowly introduce your body to the new stimulus and the soreness with be a little less severe and the frequency will mean your body will adjust faster.

Oh, and I'm thinking that stretching after the workout might be in order, as it slipped my mind the last time, but I'm not entirely sure how much it impacts the recovery.

I need to lose a lot of weight now. I weigh 287lbs, and I am thinking of going on a strict diet of celery sticks and water.

Is my plan going to work?

Going on insane diets are more harm than good. If you eat only celery, you're going to have cravings out the ass in a day or two, and you'll waste away because your body is getting not fat or protein. Eat a balanced diet of lean meats, vegetables, and limit your carbs to foods like beans, oatmeal, and occasionally fruit and you should see a ton of progress. I have an aunt who lost around 100lbs in a little over a year by going on a VERY strict no carb diet and doing as much exercise as her injured back allowed. Her doctor eventually told her to slowly introduce complex carbs such as rice and oatmeal and an apple for breakfast.

What exercise(s) did she do?

Walking, swimming. Anything easy in the joints. If you have no joint issues some light weight work would help you out too.

That sounds pleasant

I asked this so that I have a reference to think about.

Where I live at, walking is my best option. I also have a boxing bag. Not a lot sources to go to with living in a trailer park in the middle of nowhere and limited transportation.

Thank you!

you need to eat more than just celery and water, other fruits, vegetablesand meats work too

but like it's not a good idea to drop 10+ pounds a week unless you want loose skin

If I ate meat one day a week, would I maintain my normal skin?
