Any good stretches to stop achilles tendonitis? Every time I run I can always feel it at the mile mark and i'm assuming the weight I put on makes it even worse. I do the general stretching for it (hand on wall one leg forward bend knee as far down as one can) but it doesn't seem to get rid of it altogether. It makes walk sprints a nightmare.
User avatar #17885 to #17879 - derpityhurr (09/20/2014) [-]
practice drawing the alphabet with your foot, its a good exercise/stretch for your achilles; make sure when you do one foot to do the other as well

achilles heel is fine, its the achilles tendon thats the problem.

Ahoy there fitness people, two questions:
I recently heard of a product called Fatgripz, which are rubber grip things that supposedly widen your grip to increase forearm strength, was wondering if anyone here had heard of them/used them and could tell me if that works, and if it does work I would like to know if I can just wrap towels around my weights and get the same effect

Question number 2, I'm trying to bulk up, I already know about the whole caloric intake, I need around 3500 per day, how much should I be working out, how much weight should I be using, and would you all recommend a mass gainer and if so, which one?
User avatar #17881 to #17876 - lordketchup (09/20/2014) [-]
I have fatgripz, use them sometimes, you defintely grow your forearms but there's other ways that are cheaper, fat gripz can be pricey.

Just eat big, if you really need one, but they cheapest one

1) Fatgripz are a waste of money. Just do famer walks.
-grab two 45s or dumbbells of your choice
-walk back and forth a set number of times
-increase weight like any other lift
2) mass gainer is also a waste of money. Just eat.

#18004 to #17874 - KungFuZerO (09/22/2014) [-]
TokenWhiteKid is exactly right. Just wanted to add that a good mixture of cardio and weightlifting will speed up this process, or make it so you don't have to cut 500kcal a day (burning 300kcal per day means you only have to cut 200 from your diet, still a net loss of 500)
User avatar #17875 to #17874 - TokenWhiteKid (09/20/2014) [-]
1) Calculate TDEE (how many calories you burn a day)
2) subtract 500 from that number
3) count your calories so you eat that number every single day
4) When you plateau on weight loss repeat this process

Deciding to lose the fat, thought I'd post here every now and then to share how its going.

Last September I was a 17st 9lb fatass and for some reason decided to do something about it, in about 3 months i came down to 15st 4lb at a rate of roughly 4lbs a week, give or take. I did this by eating healthy, moar fruit/ veg, less shit, I cut out the whites - bread, sugar, salt etc. and started ice hockey again twice a week, and also walked about 3 miles from college each day.

After that I plateaued and struggled to lose more so I took a break and maintained the weight, albeit longer than expected, and now 7 months later here I am doing something about it again, I have gone up to 15st 9lb however I'm back on track aiming for another 3 stone, however I'm driving now and not walking to/from college so Ive hit a boxing club for 3 times a week to do bag work and circuit, also I'm drinking at least 3L of water and calorie counting so I don't lose track. I'm looking at roughly 1800 calories a day and exercise 4 x 1hr a week. Ill probably keep a photo log of every 2 weeks or so.

As a side note too, I'm doing art at college studying human form so I'm thinking of using that as motivation to lose weight so I can be a smart ass and call my 'body transformation' my final piece.

Sorry for the huge post, TL;DR: I'm going for round 2 at losing weight.

What has happened is that you cut your calories to something lower, lost weight, but now that calorie level is your maintenance level.

1) Calculate TDEE (how many calories you burn a day)
2) subtract 500 from that number
3) count your calories so you eat that number every single day
4) When you plateau again, repeat this process


User avatar #17865 - cptmongtard (09/19/2014) [-]
Okay, so since Monday I've had a strict diet of a meal a day, and a strict weights regime, with creatine as a supplement. I've lost 7lbs so far and noticed a massive difference in my muscles. Everybody should try this if they're after a more athletic figure.
#17877 to #17865 - xxxsonic fanxxx (09/20/2014) [-]
thats going to destroy your metabolism in the long run and make losing weight even more difficult later in life. it's an extremely unhealthy way to live and not recommended by any physician.

User avatar #17945 to #17944 - derpityhurr (09/21/2014) [-]
Id say to only do it for 1 week (which you already did), then eat a bit closer to your BMR and replace your weights with cardio till you get to the figure you want

At least I'm not fat, right guys.

Good job on your loss but I'd stop right there. Consider it a jump start. Your probably already in ketosis regardless of the amount of rice you ate , so continue a proper keto diet at a calorie deficit, then switch to low/moderate-low carb diet . If you have the will power to live off a handful of rice and supps, you shouldn't have a problem following a proper diet and achieve great results.

User avatar #17861 to #17860 - marinepenguin (09/19/2014) [-]
As your body fat decreases, you'll need to start eating more to make up the lower energy your fat can give. If you don't your metabolism will plummet, your fat loss will stall, and you could gain it all back very quick. Once you reach about 25-30% body fat, starting eating more. If you are lower then that, and you are still losing 3-5 pounds a week then I will be extremely surprised.

1 in 1000 people carry the chromosome, but few of them show noticeable symptoms. 60% are never diagnosed because the symptoms often don't appear as more than genetic variances (slightly smaller or mal-performing testes, tall stature, less hair growth during puberty.)

How do you come up with a good diet plan? I'm about 30 pounds over where I'd like to be. I run every day, but only like 2 miles or so, nothing crazy.
Biggest problem is I work late at night so the only things open around that time is fast food. That and I'm too lazy to cook when I don't know exactly what I want to make.
User avatar #17845 to #17844 - derpityhurr (09/18/2014) [-]
The simplest way is to find out the number of calories your body needs to run itself AKA your BMR (you can find online calculators) and try to eat 200-300 less than that everyday
Also some basic foods to remove are sodas and fast food

I'm tired of being overweight. There's no Gym nearby so I have to do all the basic stuff, like Pushups, Situps, running, jogging blah blah blah. I haven't done any real physical labour for a while since I started working so my muscles are seriously weak. I did a few pushups yesterday and today my arms are in pain. I don't want muscles, I just want to be slim for once in my life. I've already cut out Sugar and am planning to go on a Tim Noakes diet. Any other tips?
#17837 to #17835 - KungFuZerO (09/18/2014) [-]
Cutting sugar is good, but cutting fat is better. Remember, fat has 9kcal per gram. Cutting alcohol is also a good thing, or at least reducing it.
User avatar #17836 to #17835 - scandinavianpedo ONLINE (09/18/2014) [-]
eh, i myself just found a diet i can enjoy and is healthy.
aka, lots of fish, chicken and no sugar.
also, try to see how many calories you eat daily if possible, youd be surprised how many calories some foods have and how little you need of those in a day.

loosing weight is all about self control and having good control of what you eat.

also, you can only get so big doing body workouts, building muscle is manly done by having heavy and few reps, not many reps witch you will slowly build up the more weight you loose and your strength builds up.
so, don't be afraid to get buff from puchups and stuff like that, you will build muscle, but not that much.

So I've been struggling a bit recently. Started running, added timed pushups and sit ups to my routines to prepare for basic. Started running too much too quick, got shin splints worse then I ever have (attributing that to weighing more then ever while not being in good shape cardio wise), so now I'm doing cycling so my shins can heal and get back into running without excrutiating pain.

On top of that my squat has gone way way down. Expected it since I'm running and cycling and doing a lot of extra leg related stresses, and I should bound back after a month or so, but it's just a bitch month in my training.

User avatar #17832 to #17831 - leobaloy (09/18/2014) [-]
Does your cycle have RPM/Cadence meters on it?
High intensity seems vague

I will say that cycling isn't a substitute for running though, so heal up and stuff

I cycle
Although yesterday was the first time I worked out in about a month
I'm sore yo, gotta get back in the habit.
User avatar #17833 to #17832 - marinepenguin (09/18/2014) [-]
Well I mean that I basically pedal as hard and fast as I can for 10 minutes.

And I know it isn't the same, but I was told that while my shins were getting healed up for me to run again, that I should cycle to get my lungs trained better.

And that's a bitch, it sucks to get out of the groove and try to get back into it.
User avatar #17834 to #17833 - leobaloy (09/18/2014) [-]
I've never tried pedaling as hard as I can for 10 minutes, mostly due to having a 30lb flywheel and I usually sit on my bike for 1.5 hours on average
Try singing while cycling, that is a lung workout protip: its hard
Also if you want to work out a different part of your leg (assuming the cycle you use either has clips or straps), pull instead of pushing, try it next time you cycle, its really different

Yea it is, I took today as a break because I literally feel sore everywhere, but gonna get back into it tomorrow and make it a daily habit again to the point its as natural as brushing my teeth, like it used to be.

Use this to track your calorie intake


Here are three very good beginner routines:
1) Starting Strength 2) Stronglifts 3) Greyskull


How to perform the lifts in the above routines:

So, keypoints: Eat 500 calories above your TDEE because muscles don't pop out of nothing (yes you will gain some fat. You will "cut" later on (TDEE minus 500 to lose body fat past a certain point), learn proper form and technique (this cannot be stressed enough), and sleep 8 hours a night.

#17856 to #17820 - TokenWhiteKid (09/19/2014) [-]

Here is what you need to know:

Since you are skinny, you need to gain weight, this is a given. We are going to talk about "bulking".

Bulking is where you calculate your TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) aka calories burned everyday and then you add 300 to that number.

Useful website: www.fitnessfrog.com/calculators/tdee-calculator.html

Put moderate considering the routines I'm going to give you.

And don't forget to eat.
#17821 to #17820 - eatsleepswim (09/17/2014) [-]
Simple answer? You just gotta fuckin eat dude. Right now I'm assuming you're either starting/in/finishing puberty so your appetite is gonna get pretty big. Use it to your advantage. An outline for a solid day of eating would be:
Breakfast- Two bowls of cereal, some kind of fruit, hard boiled egg or yogurt
Lunch- Two sandwiches, fruit, crackers
Dinner- Some kind of meat (burger, chicken, turkey, anything with some natural protein), a carb (potatoes are great), and a green vegetable
That's the easiest outline for gaining weight. Definitely throw some snacks in there in between each meal. Long story short, you should never feel hungry. In regards to working out and putting some muscle on, you should start with the basics, work on your body weight workouts (pushups, air squats, pull ups). Perfect those before you start lifting weights. At your age, unless you are 100% done with puberty, you shouldn't be doing any serious weight lifting. Start with basic stuff, light squats, light benching, maybe deadlifts. The biggest thing I can say is you should not be doing any kind of exercise if you are not doing it perfectly. If your form is not perfect, you're wasting your time. You got any more questions feel free to ask!

Inner part of pecks aren't getting targeted as much as the outer part of my pecs when exercising.
Any exercises I could do (only got bodyweight and dumbbells) to exercise the inner part of pecks?
Heard compound exercises are best but not sure which ones
#17974 to #17819 - KMD (09/21/2014) [-]
When I really want to target the upper inner portion of my chest with dumbells I'll do a variation of a pec fly.
Stand up, with a dumbell in one hand, palms facing forwards, square shoulders your shoulders and with a slight bend in the elbow bring the dumbell up and across your torso at the same time. at the top of the rep your palms should be facing upwards.
#17838 to #17819 - KungFuZerO (09/18/2014) [-]
Two things: First, theres no separate parts of the chest. If you have a small upper/lower/inner/outer chest, it just means youre not working your chest enough. That being said, you can emphasize different parts of the chest. Ive found hex press and diamond pushups get my inner chest amazing.

I just squatted for the first time. Figured 100 lbs shouldn't be a problem, it wasn't. But now what I'm assuming are my lats feel like fucking death. Is this just first time pain or did I just fuck up?
#17817 to #17816 - thisismyhandle (09/17/2014) [-]
Squatting with a barbell is a very taxing exercise for your body, so it makes sense that you would be very sore from doing it the first time. I don't know if that would explain soreness in your lats though. Pic related, your lats are under your armpit.

Where on your body is the pain? Is it on your back, shoulders, or what?
User avatar #17829 to #17817 - imashitbricks (09/18/2014) [-]
It's mostly gone now. But it was around the shoulder blades and the lower back. But it's all good now.

Right below and on the outside of the shoulder blades.*
User avatar #17858 to #17830 - TokenWhiteKid (09/19/2014) [-]
It's good that your lats are sore

If you're doing proper barbell squats, your entire back, legs, and abs should be sore the first few times (soreness naturally stops occurring in time)

You should be focusing on pulling your elbows back while holding the barbell and this is where you utilize your lats.

Also, you don't need to do the random junk KungFuZerO is mentioning. Beginner routines just have squats and deadlifts for legs and lower back and as a novice you'll make considerable gains in those areas. You should only do isolations like that when you're squatting 315 lbs for reps because then the tiny details will matter.

All I do for legs are 3 sets of 5 reps of squats, one set of 5 reps on deadlift and I have large legs as a result.
#17839 to #17830 - KungFuZerO (09/18/2014) [-]
Since you just started, mix it up a bit. Squat 1-2x/week, and then on the other days do things like deadlifts/RDLs, leg press, ad/abductors, jump squats (body weight), etc.

Any safe lifting exercises to do with dumb bells? Many of them are so form dependent that it's really unsafe to do be yourself. So far I just lie flat on my back and lift the dumb bells up for a couple of a sets.
User avatar #17810 to #17805 - marinepenguin (09/16/2014) [-]
You can't really claim that working out isn't safe when you have no idea what you are doing. Working out with weights is perfectly safe if you aren't stupid about it, like anything else in life.
User avatar #17807 to #17805 - thisismyhandle (09/16/2014) [-]
The exercises are not unsafe if you don't try to lift too heavy or for too many reps. Basically, do anything that isn't impossible without a partner, but with a more reasonable weight so that you have total control of your form at all times.

guys, I need help.
In the last 3 weeks, I've decided to get fit and build/define muscles.
Over the last 3 weeks I have:
Completely cut every single fluid from my diet and drink only a lot of water.
I pretty much eat only fruits and lots of protein, very, very little sugar and carbs.
Each day I repeat this cycle twice:
3X12 diamond push ups
3X15 stomach crunches
3X12 diamond push ups
3X15 stomach crunches
3X8 Bicep/hammer curls with 2 10 kilo wights.
And 2 20 minute walks/jogs per day.
In this time I've seen some good development and am feeling much better, but I want to improve on this.
Can someone improve my routine to build muscle and slim down, I do not have access to a gym right now.
+ does anybody know a good core strengthening exercises to do with my weights?
Thanks in advance.
#17840 to #17804 - KungFuZerO (09/18/2014) [-]
In my opinion, you're not going about this very well. Ill try to address everything.
1. Its only been 3 weeks. In that time the most you could gain is neuromuscular connections, no real strength or hypertrophy gains.
2. Don't cut all fluids, milk and orange juice are amazing for you. Carbs are also amazing, they should account for about 50% of your daily calories. If you're consuming less calories than you're burning, you won't build muscle.
3. Fruits have a ton of sugar in them. Eat vegetables instead.
4. You're routine is lacking quads, hams, calves, back, triceps, and shoulder. ADD them.
5. Don't work the same muscle twice in a 48 hour period.
6. Strengthen your core without weights. Planks.

Thanks a lot for the advice, I'll definitely use it to change my regime.
What carbs would you recommend?
What kind of exercises should I add for those muscles?
How would I go about planks? 3 sets of 10 with each rep being 60 seconds?
+how does working the same muscle twice in a 48 hr period affect me negatively?
Thanks again.

As far as carbs go, the less processed it is, the better. Whole wheat bread is good, and brown rice.
For the exercises, it depends what kind of equipment you have. Squats (quads), deadlifts (hamstrings), calf raises (caves), bent rows (back), overhead extensions (triceps) and lateral raises (shoulders) can all be done with dumbbells. Google them for proper form.
Go for endurance when you're doing planks. If you can hold it for 60 seconds, go for 90 the next time, and 120 the next time, etc.
Muscles need at least 48 hours to fully recover. Working them every day doesn't allow them to recover, which means you won't be able to work as hard as you did the day before.

Thank you.
So, for the plank, there is no real need for reps and sets, it's just progression and endurance?
#18086 to #18076 - KungFuZerO (09/22/2014) [-]
Exactly. Planks work your core muscles, which you'll never need to 1 rep max or anything. You just need endurance so it doesn't give out during squats, deads, etc.

Thanks for all the advice. Very helpful.

I have decided to get in shape. Not build muscles, but get in shape. I went out for a jog/powerwalk today, and it is the first time in my whole life I've ever actually tried.
And Im so fucking mad that I didn't try it sooner. It felt fucking fantastic!
But I need help guys, mostly with a foodschedule. What should I eat, what shouldn't I eat. I just turned 20, wich is the age you are allowed to but alcohol in sweden, but I don't drink, and I don't smoke anymore.

Pic is my breakfast, is it good? Shitty camera, it's scrambled eggs, bacon with the grease padded off, half an avocado and a glass of milk. What should I add/remove?

not bad for starting off but get rid of that milk

That's a pretty good breakfast. If possible, go with turkey bacon, but milk, eggs, and avocado are all very good choices.
#17802 to #17801 - thesadassasin (09/16/2014) [-]
Sweden don't really have turkey bacon.. But thanks!

Whats a good dinner then? Im think about.. I dont think it exists outside sweden lol.

You take Falun Sausage, and istead of chopping it to bits, you just slice it, about halfway through. Then you put some mustard and greens inside the slits, and put cheese over it. Usually mashed potatoes with that. Good or bad?

Pic is the meal Im talking about

Based on the two meals that you showed me, you seem to eat food with decent nutritional value. I would say that you should vary your meat choices to be more than just pork and to eat some whole grains if you don't already, but otherwise you should be fine.

As for coffee, drink it in moderation. If you drink a few cups every day (or more), I would tell you to lower your intake of coffee (and thus caffeine). The best thing to drink is water.

I drink maybe 2 cups a day, and I eat apples instead of drinking water.. It tastes funny where I live. I never buy plain bread, and usually I get whole grain pasta, but lately, money have been low.

Thanks for the help man, feels good Im not fucking this up!
User avatar #17809 to #17808 - thisismyhandle (09/16/2014) [-]
So... you don't drink plain water at all? Do they sell purified water in Sweden? That could help with the taste problem.
User avatar #17814 to #17809 - thesadassasin (09/17/2014) [-]
They do and its really expensive. I mean, of course I can, tastes much better after being in the freezer.

Also, Coffee, good or bad?

Power cleaning my own weight for 2 sets of 4 is a magical feeling.
