My knees have cracked for years and it takes me well into my lower body work to get them to stop every workout, and they'll start cracking again in the morning.

If you aren't in pain, don't worry about it too much.

Happens to everyone who is a DYEL and doesn't warm up.

Do about 15 reps (each leg) of slow and controlled lunges and you should be good.

Wanting to start loose weight, currently weigh around 80 kilos, maybe a bit more. ( 176 pounds )
Although i'm not fat or close i still would like to look better than i am now, have already thought of starting bit of a diet by cutting processed foods, and soda's.

What work outs would be best for me, not that fit at the moment.

Until you join a gym, calisthenics are probably your best bet. Gaining muscle is going to help you out a whole lot more than trying to cut down to 150lbs to shed off the last of your day reserves.

Watch out, you are prime target for people advertising ways to get in the "tone zone".
And tbh you prob arnt looking for squat, bench, deadlift. Studbeef would tell you to do those 3 if you were a 90 year old looking to get rid of backpain.

Your just trying to look good right? You might end up needing to go to the gym, do you have an idea of your "perfect body" like some celebrity or something?

Thats alot of arm work, dudes got no chest/lats and only decent abs.

Proper nutrition and training (as long as you dont have fucked genetics) will get you there in a year maybe 2.

Prob not going to look like that any time soon unless you are already naturally decently muscular and have a gym membership.

No gym membership I'd recommend close grip underhand pullups, tricep pushups, regular pushups, chair dips, if you have any decent weights lying around do curls/overhead press/tricep kickbacks/overhead tricep extensions.
When I first started I had one rusty dumbbell and really thats all you need at first to get used to lifting as long as you push yourself.
Ultimately your severally limited by a lack of free weights/machines.

Get a gym membership, work in a 5x5 program at the start, dont fall for any memes like crossfit or "functional strength" and dont ego lift. But most importantly enjoy the gym, if you don't do what you want to do, if you arnt having fun, then you arnt making progress.

Yeah, that would be the end goal, but anything that looks better how i am now would also be a goal/milestone.

Don't have any equipment at home, so a gym membership would be needed.
I am going out today into town to have a look at what gyms there are and what their prices are ect. Before joining one.

If your going to start hitting weights I recommend butting yourself in the mindset of a lifter, and getting in the liftstyle of it.

Start watching these guys on youtube
Buffdudes, Bradlymartyn, Broscience, Calum Von Moger
Those guys will give you some entertainment/motivation/knowledge
Also
kalimuscle, mike O'hern, rich piana,
Those guys arnt the best, and tbh most of their info is just a bunch of memes, but rich piana has some pretty good info sometimes
Watch out for guys like
vegan gains, mike chang from six pack shortcuts, and strength camp
Those guys are just pure meme bullshit, pretty much univerally hated and gaurnteed to try to sell you some bullshit before they would even think about giving you ideas for gains.

Also realize that like 90% of the people who lift on youtube are on A LOT of steroids.

If you watch those videos I find it helps keep you in the lifting mind set.

Well in studs defense, multi jointed compound movements like those are generally the best way to gain strength and put on size for long and consistent periods of time. If you aren't incorporating some of them in some way, you're really limiting yourself.

Nah b, over hyped. They are just exercises, same as anything else. I rarely deadlift but my back is great, I never hit flat but I got a decent chest, and I only ever pause squat but I still got glutes and hams.

Maybe I am limiting myself, dont feel like it though.

I'm not talking just bench, squat, dead. Plus the pause squat is still a compound movement, so aren't lunges. Anything from a standing overhead press, to a loaded carry, is a form of a compound movement. I'm saying that in general, for 99.9% of people, someone who squats 405 for reps is going to have better developed quads than a guy who is really good at leg extensions.

Also your personal experience doesn't trump the other literal thousands of studies and lifetime successful lifters that say otherwise.

I feel you on that.
I guess its in my head, more of a mind muscle conection when you isolate muscle groups.
I can feel my chest pull in my humorous in a fly but not a bench, I feel my bicep flex in a curl and not a pullup.

exactly, when I do bench or squat I dont feel a burn or a flex, I just do so many reps and then cant do them again until I take like a 90 second break. I do always include them though, just not always bench skwat and DL

That's different for me then. I feel a burn and pump when doing compounds. Like just yesterday I did deadlifts with 275 for a finisher set of 25 and my quads were destroyed I feel the deadlift more in my legs and I couldn't walk after. Then the pump I got was insane.

Is there any correlation between physical fitness and the body's reaction to allergens, specifically pet dander?

I am violently allergic to dogs. Allergic and Asthmatic reactions to dogs have almost actually killed me on 3 separate occasions. Yet my entire family ignores this and continues to buy more and more dogs and cats and filling up their houses with animal air pollution.

I no longer live with them, thankfully, but I do still like seeing them, and would like to be able to visit without actually having to wear hazmat gear just to stay in my mother's house for a night without having to be rushed to the hospital to get the fluid siphoned out of my lungs.

Them getting rid of the animals is entirely out of the question, as I found out and was aggressively shamed by them for asking.

So, would me getting fit help my body to not being a violent wheezy sneezy fucktard in response to allergens, specifically animal dander?

All I want to do in life is pet the dog.
And I miss my family.
What can I do?

My brother has had major asthma since he was about 3, both sports and animals set him off pretty bad. Lifting weights and running has helped reduce his sports related triggers for the most part but animals are sill tricky. He can spend more time in houses with dogs or cats if he takes an over the counter allergy pill and keeps his inhaler on him, but ultimately it depends on how long he's there and how clean the house is to determine how long before breathing becomes impaired.

Age also helps as some people have allergies dissipate or disappear over time, or gain new ones. You could also talk to a doctor about anti alergen shots or drops, I've heard that those work pretty well for long term treatment.

Physically fit individuals are harder to injure, less susceptible to disease, and recover from injury or sickness faster.

I'm not entirely sure how it would effect you in terms of resisting allergies, but I can imagine that you'd recover from them quicker.

more than likely you don't have good enough mobility to progress as much on the FS. If you go ATG (which you should), try stretching your ankles more and tracking your knees out more when you FS, it should become tremendously easier. (This advice works well for BS too but applies more to the front rack position)

I've always been more posterior chain dominant. Yes I have to work on hip and ankle mobility some, but front squats force me to rely on my quads more so than glutes and hamstrings.

Moving tomorrow 2 hours into the mountains, the only "gyms" they have are crossfit hippy shit-holes because it's hippy-ville. Campus gym is packed with the 19,000 students living on campus. Luckily I have an apartment off campus, next to a smallish gym. No contract, $55 a month, has a Physical Therapist on duty during hours (who will work on you or help you in you're injured for free), and it has indoor and outdoor areas to lift.

Squat just far enough so it isn't bad for your knees and don't touch your best on bench, since it can hurt your ribs

There's no such thing as a spoto press, that's incorrect lifting form. Going past half way down will destroy the tendons in your elbows, just like with squatting going the mythical "ass to grass" will make your knees blow out

You'll never get toned lifting like that, lifting that low will make you a big fat powerlifter

Do you stop eating when you are no longer hungry?
That's the problem.
Also if your eating shit food your body is not going to keep as much of it cuz its shit.

Eat good carbs and protein, rice and chicken, and eat it until you literally can't eat anymore and then you take another bite.

Treat eating like a workout.

(All this info is fake/just a prank bro, seriously don't do steroids, they are bad for you, take every sentence with a grain of salt and know that this is all FALSE and just a joke do your own research fam.)

Couple weeks ago I made a post about me doing some anabolic steroids, figured I'd follow that up and tell you guys how it's going if your interested. Also its an AMA so go for it bruv.

Currently doing a 4 week cycle of Dianabol (just that beginner shit not about to go crazy with it day 1), on my last week right now but I'm going to slowly lower the dosage for another week after. First 3 days I was doing 15mg, then 30 for 4 days and then every day since then 45mg.

PRs: I usually don't try for PR's ever because I focus on bodybuilding routines but I figured this would be a good benchmark. About a month ago my max bench was about 185, the very first day I did 45mg I hit 205, in a week I added 20lbs to max bench, and 3 weeks later I added another 20 to hit my first ever 225. Squat is getting better I did 3 225 pause squats because they felt good, and I've consistently hit 375 every day I DL which was normally my max on a really good day.

Some weird stuff you don't really hear about. I'm damn near legally blind, but the first day I took this shit my vision was noticeably improved to the point where I could drive without glasses (most likely do to better blood flow). I normally eat a lot of sodium and creatine to retain water because it helps make the lift more smooth and I don't mind losing vascularity because it takes like 3 days max to look like a leaf if I really wanted but even then I was getting veins out like crazy even though dbol notoriously makes you gain water weight like crazy.

Possibly the weirdest thing was this "synthetic Alpha" that I thought was just a meme but its pretty spot on. I'm by no means a cringy meme king who can't hold a conversation, and I try to be pretty out going but this just turned me into straight Bro-Chad mode. I involuntarily/indirectly hit on girls all the time and got free food twice at panda express and steak and shake by just talking/hitting on girls at the regester, I feel like I stand taller and every witty comment/joke ect comes twice as fast, I find girls try to stand closer to me and laugh more with me, ect ect.

Aesthetically my muscles look more solid/cut/vascular, though I have been cutting while I take this. I gained about a half inch on my arms, they were 16 1/4 inches but now their 16 3/4 and I bet if I did it with a good pump I could maybe hit 17inches, legs look better, lats grew way more then I expect, chest hasn't developed as much as I hoped but noticeable size atleast. Were it hit hardest was calves and forearms, which for me are my worst muscles for looks/size but damn they blew up. People have even commented on how much bigger I look regardless of knowing what I'm on or not. I weight about 175 which is up just a bit from my 168 but I was cutting the whole time and that's 7 pounds of almost only water and muscle because I have lost a lot of fat as well.

Had what I think are liver pains early on, some kind of right side pains but it was too low for liver and too high for appendix but I took some milk thistle anyways just to be safe and haven't noticed anything since. One day my balls hurt like a mother fucker but it was just for an hour and its because my natural testosterone was being shut off since the dbol was producing X more Test than my bodies norm.

Anger for me is not at all an issue, though the guys I was taking it with would often freak the fuck out sometimes, I haven't even raised my voice once, but I'm naturally pretty chill so I didn't expect to roid out anyways.

All and all would I recommend doing steroids? No of course not, I am only doing this because I have severe body dysmorphia and horrible self esteem. Most people will be able to achieve their goal body without steroids so don't use them ever, but will I be doing another cycle? Yeah, probably.

Did you quit because you got tired of what you were doing or was it something non related to working out that made you quit?
If it was somethig not related to the gym, well then suck it up and go work out! And try to fix it in some way.
However if you just got tired of what you were doing then try something else. Try a new routine, maby try going from bodybuilding (of thats what you did) and over to powerlifting or strongman. Hell you might even try crossfit, yes everyone hates on it but EVERYTHING beats you sitting on your ass getting fat.

As for diet, if your notivation for training comes back your diet will fix it self.

The problem is, is that you have no motivation to workout.

So you could either
A. Stop being lazy and just go lift
or
B. Hit an all time low, gain 50 lbs, cry yourself to sleep for a couple months and then start lifting because you hate yourself more then you hate lifting.


Or you could just get some pre workout/caffeine pills, shits addictive as fuck and gets you pumped so it really just gets you addicted to working out.

Let's see, I was made fun of, my energy was very limited, I didn't feel confident, and I was depressed at one point. Aside from the noticeable empty sack hanging from the front of my torso, my life has very much improved since my weight has become 2/3 of what it used to be, and for once I can appreciate my looks as I can look into the mirror and see a visible jawline.

No I've just been eating less because money and I'm too lazy to cook shit since that means dishes and fuck that. On days my mom is off I eat eggs and bacon and kielbasa for breakfast, usually some more chicken for dinner or we order something from the Armenian place.

Sup shit lords, got a fun work out program that I think you guys might have fun with.

Recently, I've been getting seriously into MMA, drilling technique at my gym at least 4 or 5 times a week with a solid cardio or weight lifting session beforehand. My cardio is on point, but my power could use a little work.

I need mass. Serious mass. I can go the distance no problem but I'm worried when I finally step into the ring I won't have that knock out power I need to end the fight like a baller. I know in fighting you have to play to your strengths, but I always like to fill in the gaps in my fighting style where I can and strength is definitely a glaring gap for me.

What I'm asking for is a workout regiment that plays into this need for power. I'm hoping you guys have ideas of workouts that will translate perfectly into a powerful punch, kick, takedown, or what have you. I was hoping for some solid core exercises to work between sets as well, if you guys have them.

Another concern I had is the amount of cardio I will inevitably be doing on top of this bulking. I know the whole "cardio kills gains" is a load of crap but I was worried that the muscle confusion from bulking in the morning and drilling technique/cardio in the evening might be a little too baffling for the body and go nowhere.I know to compensate for this I need to eating the proper amount of calories with lean protein like chicken but if there's any concern I should be worrying about I'd appreciate the tip.

Any tips are appreciated, I really want to go far with this.

Get better at the squat, bench, and deadlift. Developing those, as well as practicing your striking techniques, will make you more powerful.

Don't worry about "baffling" your body, that's just ridiculous.

Men aren't as picky as women. Personally I'm not attracted to most girls bodies, since the majority of people are generally out of shape.
