why am I fat?
User avatar #22762 to #22759 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Because you have a lifestyle that contributes to you being fat.

I ate salad, still fat, what now?

Are the abs and stifled strength gains worth it?
User avatar #22791 to #22754 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
I'm also hungry all the time. I don't think he's starving himself, I think that he's pointing out the need to eat all the time. Which I can relate to. I had a lunch at 1:30 and by 3 I was ready for another meal.
User avatar #22793 to #22791 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
You eating small meals or something? Even fast metabolism mother fuckers can satiate if they eat enough.
User avatar #22794 to #22793 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
I wouldn't call them small. I went to subway and got a footlong, then went home and had the remaining amount of our mashed potatoes from yesterdays dinner, which was a fairly large container, then I grabbed a protein shake along with a banana and cheese stick. I wouldn't be surprised if I ate 1500 calories in that 30 minute period. I regularly eat 4 or 5 meals with about 1000 calories each in them. I'm a tall fucker with a quick metabolism, and now that I'm over 200 pounds it's only gotten worse.

I don't have abs
I eat tonnes of food but I keep on being hungry

Brah, goals. Not everyone is training for strength.
User avatar #22756 to #22755 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
Strength and size are not mutually exclusive. If you get stronger, you will get bigger (unless of course we're talking about learning new movements where you add weight simply because you're getting better at them).

Besides, I was just asking him. Not all questions are underhanded slants. It really was just a question.
#22757 to #22756 - KungFuZerO (12/26/2014) [-]
No shit they're not exclusive, nothing I said would imply that.
And if that wasnt an underhanded slants, you really need to work on your phrasing.
You wouldn't be offended if someone saw your routine and said: Is a fat gut and shitty aesthetics worth it?
User avatar #22758 to #22757 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
People have asked me that, and I say yes. Yes it is. I like being strong.
#22760 to #22758 - KungFuZerO (12/26/2014) [-]
So then why hate on this guy just bc his goals are different?
He's probably either losing weight or cutting to be more aesthetic. Why call him out and imply he's not as strong as he could be?
User avatar #22779 to #22760 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
I never hated on him. I never said he was weak. You can be strong, but with stifled improvements. Stifled doesn't mean small, it means restricted.
#22803 to #22779 - KungFuZerO (12/27/2014) [-]
Thats exactly what I said. "Not as strong as he could be"
Theres nothing wrong with cutting dude. Having abs is fantastic. Don't hate what you dont understand.
User avatar #22810 to #22803 - studbeefpile (12/27/2014) [-]
Lol dude, I understand alllll of this. I'm actually gonna be going on a cut in February, and I'm gonna try to get decently shredded just for the sake of 'been there done that'. I just like making fun of the 'hungry skeleton' lyfestyle. But that's not what this dude has going, he replied to my comment saying that he wasn't in that situation, and he's just hungry a lot.

Stop judging me because you think I'm judging other people. srs.
#22817 to #22810 - KungFuZerO (12/27/2014) [-]
He's eating as much as he can and still hungry, therefore he's not trying to get abs and his strength gains aren't stifled, therefore you assumed wrong, therefore you're wrong. Easy stuff.
User avatar #22820 to #22817 - studbeefpile (12/27/2014) [-]
"As much as he can". 90% of the time someone says they 'eat tons of food' they're really not eating that much. People don't know what a ton of food is.

Regardless.....I'm a pretty blunt guy. Just because I say something that might sound slanted or sarcastic, doesn't necessarily mean it is. Like I said before, people have asked me how it feels to be unaesthetic as fuck, and I answer them straight forward. I'm a fat kid that likes to lift heavy things. That's all there is to it.

Besides, I think you're just being pissy because I have the immortal deadlift gains of peace (srs) that are far beyond your pulling power, so you're trying to 'make' me wrong about something. (srs)

Doing deadlifts on the floor just lieing flat on my back with dumbbells. I'm starting to feel shit in my neck and am unsure of how to make it stop. I know I shouldn't be feeling anything in my neck, and can't be sure if its only related to the deadlifts or not, but I also can't think of anyway that having bad form would somehow cause stress on the neck. Any advice?
User avatar #22740 to #22738 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
I'm not sure if I read that wrong, but how are you doing deadlifts on your back? You don't do deadlifts lying down.
#22743 to #22740 - anonexplains (12/26/2014) [-]
bench press*
User avatar #22744 to #22743 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Ahh, that makes more sense. Those are floor presses if your lying on the floor, not so much bench presses.

Just try to relax your neck as you lift the weight, you are probably tensing up as you try to press, and your neck is in an awkward position. So keep you head laying on the floor and try to relax it while only focusing on your pressing muscles.

**cliffordlover used "*roll picture*"**
**cliffordlover rolled image** I started doing a new workout routine. 10 exercises for 40 seconds each and 20 seconds rest. I guess you're not really burning many calories in 10 minutes, but I almost threw up after 7. I had to walk outside in the cold to cool off. I could barely do some of the exercises because of my knees, though. It's sad. My legs are like nothing but muscle, but I can't do shit with them because of how bad my knees are.

Marinepenguin, it's been a while, but I think we're the same height. Do you have troubles with your knees? I've had surgery on both, so I know that's part of it, but I've heard tall people generally have more knee troubles.

Also, thanks for answering my question.
User avatar #22739 to #22737 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
I've never had any sort of issues with my knees. Not once. So I don't know anything about that. What'd you have surgery on both for?
User avatar #22741 to #22739 - cliffordlover (12/26/2014) [-]
I was doing lunges and dislocated my right kneecap, so I broke part of my kneecap and my femur. As far as I know, they're both fixed.

For my left leg, I was playing basketball, and I dislocated it because I tore my MPFL, so I broke that kneecap, too. They reconstructed my MPFL and took out the chunk of that kneecap. I don't think fixing the kneecap actually has anything to do with it, but I'm mentioning it because my left one is still numbish.

It may have nothing to do with it. I just wondered if you had the problem. Your opinions are the only ones I listen to this board usually.
User avatar #22742 to #22741 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Oh geez dude. Those are some issues. I honestly couldn't tell you what to do to help rehab those in good faith, because I've never had any sort of injury like that. I'm sorry I can't do much for you there. Only thing I could tell you is to not do leg extensions if youre doing them. Those put a lot of sheer forces on your knees.

And I'm flattered that you listen to my advice!
User avatar #22734 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
First day with rack, instead of resting in between sets I did as many quality pull ups as possible, it was already tough on its own but adding those pull ups and chinups was torture. At the end of the workout I had done 112 total pullups. I'm gonna do this every day. Eventually I'll start adding more weight instead of reps.
#22729 - marinepenguin (12/25/2014) [-]
Here's the rack that I got. So super excited about having it.
User avatar #22745 to #22729 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
Nice dude.

Is that bench attached to it? If so, that sucks....If not, you can slide a movable bench in there*, and use the longer racks as a fail safe so you can actually bench to failure, or attempt 1RMs without fear. That's what I do. I have a very similar rack.

* I'm saying this because the bench has to be in a very specific position in order for you to be able to un-rack the weight and bench to your chest, with the weight staying over the safety racks.
User avatar #22746 to #22745 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Nope I just put that bench in there. And yeah I figured. There's a lot of shit I've wanted to do, but haven't been able to. Stuff like wide grip deadlifts, pin presses, and stuff like that. I'm gonna love this rack.
User avatar #22747 to #22746 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
.....why wouldn't you have been able to do wide grip deadlifts in the past?
User avatar #22748 to #22747 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
When you do wider grip you should raise the starting point of the lift up a little. It allows you to start in a more favorable position and use more weight then normal. Also has a lower chance of injury.
User avatar #22749 to #22748 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
You silly. One of the main points of wide grip pulls is to increase the range of motion. Not to mention you're forced to get your hips a little bit lower. I worked Snatch Grip Deads for a little while, I really like them.

Rack pulls are a totally separate deal.
User avatar #22750 to #22749 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
That's only if your goal is to actually increase rom for your deadlift, if increasing rom was my goal I'd do deficit deadlifts. I do wide grip deads for back, have you ever done higher reps for them? The whole yolk of your back is destroyed when done properly.

But that's just my personal opinion.
User avatar #22751 to #22750 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
Yeah I catch your drift. Definitely have to keep your upper back tight for them. -lol bruh, you askin me if i dun high reps on da deadlift?

When I did them the main goal was to help my lockout, and help me get more comfortable in the bottom position, so I did them off the ground. I get what your point is though.

What's the difference between pullups and chinups?

Pull ups have you palms facing away from you. Chinups have your palms facing towards you.

Hit up 365 for 6 on deadlift. Not quite what I wanted to hit, but it felt like a pretty off day. I'm tired, haven't deadlifted seriously in a little over a week, etc. So I did a few back off sets. 315 for a 3x3, paused reps. Pause deadlifts are fun.

Gonna try to get 365 for 8-10 next pull session. If I can't hit those numbers, I'll back down to about 335 and try to get that to 20 reps instead.

Guys, I am about to start the stronglifts 5x5 workout. I only have free weights, so I will have to improvise some of the workouts. Has anyone else done this? I would really appreciate any help or insight you have, thanks.
User avatar #22718 to #22717 - TokenWhiteKid (12/25/2014) [-]
stronglifts is a free weights exercise. You shouldn't have to improvise
#22719 to #22718 - anonexplains (12/25/2014) [-]
He probably means that the exercises would be different to accommodate for a lack of a bar bell. You possibly could but it would be harder I think, since you would have to effectively have a ton of weights to manage it. Also some things may not be safe to do for lack of stability.

I honestly would recommend joining a facility that is going to provide you with quality equipment so you can do this safely. I suppose though if you are starting with really low weight that could wait some time.

It'll make a difference if you saw no weight gain with 3300, you should see some lean gains with 3600.

Tomorrow will be my second consecutive year deadlifting on Christmas day. I mean to make a tradition out of it. Will be doing 365 for AMRAP to see where I'm at. Gonna work it up to 20 over the next little while, same as I did with 315....

it begins anew....
User avatar #22693 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
Benching today. Doing 150 for 12, shouldn't be too bad. I haven't reached a weight that is super challenging yet. Once I get to 165 it should start to be a real struggle.

Also I'm still doing those incline bench drms and still progressing in weight, which suprises me. I'm doing 3x8 today with 155 pounds, although I can't imagine I'll be able to get all I reps in a row on the last set.

Also I am switching back to skullcrushers today, my biggest dumbbells (65 pounds) got too light, so I'll do some incline behind the head skullcrushers that KungFuZerO mentioned a little while ago.

All in all, looking forward to the gym today as my chest has been progressing very quickly.
#22694 to #22693 - KungFuZerO (12/24/2014) [-]
If you every wanna switch up your incline chest, i love landmine presses.
User avatar #22695 to #22694 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
I do those sometime. But those are more for shoulders then upper chest I'd say.
#22696 to #22695 - KungFuZerO (12/24/2014) [-]
You might be doing them too high. They would use much less shoulder than normal or incline bb bench if you're pushing out at about a 45 degree angle.
User avatar #22697 to #22696 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
I see. The first I'd ever heard of them was in a shoulder workout article. So I used it and it's always been felt more in my shoulder then in my upper chest. I could see it being an upper chest workout if you tweaked the movement a little.
#22699 to #22697 - KungFuZerO (12/24/2014) [-]
Yeah, theres not very much leaning forward

Tried something new for back today. 3 different super sets: Pullups/shrugs, bent rows/deads, db rows/reverse flys.
Felt amazing, gonna have to try it with chest tomorrow.
User avatar #22700 to #22699 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
Ohhhhh yeah I don't do it like that. I do it with one hand, standing up straight, bar is over my shoulder. I could see how that's more of an upper chest movement.

And nice, I actually managed to do 155 with my incline bench, although it was just barely. Those DRMs for pretty much every compound movement is an absolute killer.

Anyone know any good bodyweight exercises? Gonna be without a gym for about 5 months
User avatar #22688 to #22683 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
Push ups, pull ups, squats, dips, lunges.
#22681 - warkiller (12/24/2014) [-]
Alright, so I've been weightlifting for about five months now. Everything's going great. All my maxes are going up and I'm liking all the results except for one. My deadlift.
I started off maxing 295 and within two or three months it went up to 315.
Ever since I pulled 315, I haven't been able to pull anything above 295 and I've hit a plateau. I've seen almost no increase on my deadlift even though I do it every time that I should be.
Everyone says I have proper form, yet no gains.
I'm only experiencing this problem with my deadlift. Any help or advice?
And yes, I know 295 and 315 are laughable numbers, but you gotta start somewhere.
User avatar #22701 to #22681 - lulzformalaysiaair (12/25/2014) [-]
Don't test your maxes. Follow your routine (5x5, ect) and then you'll see strength/muscle growth. Which will eventually lead to growth in max deadlift.
User avatar #22689 to #22681 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
What rep range are you working with? Are you trying to beat that number every time you go into the gym?
#22806 to #22689 - warkiller (12/27/2014) [-]
I'll go about a month in the 8-12 rep range at between 50% and 70% of my 1rm. For the next month I'll stay in the 5-7 rep range at between 80% and 100% of my 1rm.

So for the first month my routine for say, squats, would look something like:
3x12 squats @ 50%
End of the first month will look closer to:
4x8 squats @ 70%

Second month will look like:
5x6 squats @ 75%
end of the month before I max will look something like this:
1x10 squats @ 50%
1x5 squats @ 75%
1x3 squats @ 85%
1x2 squats @ 90%
1x1 squats @ 100% (recorded max, not current)
After about two to two and a half months I'll test my 1rm and write it down.
I do this on my compound exercises such as bench, squats, deadlifts, cleans.
And I only try maxing out when I'm supposed to.
But with the above method, I've made between 20 and 30 pound increases on everything every two months.
Except for deadlift. I've done the above routine the entire time and deadlift weight hasn't budged.

And sorry for the late response. Spent yesterday and most of today with the fam.
User avatar #22816 to #22806 - studbeefpile (12/27/2014) [-]
I'm talking specifically for deadlifts. What applies to bench and squats does not necessarily apply to deadlifts.

If I were you, I would rebuild your deadlift from the ground up. Take a really light weight, like 135, do it for one 20 rep set, and just do accessories for the rest of your pull workout. Each week, add literally only 10lbs, and try to hit 20 again. Hit 20 reps for the set for as long as you can. Once the reps start to drop just keep adding 10lbs each week. Eventually you'll go down to 10, 6, 3, 2, and before you know it, you'll be at your new one rep max, which I'm sure will be much higher than it was before.

It's important that you load up on accessories though, since you're only doing 1 set of deadlifts - especially when that set gets down to 8 reps or less. I recommend bent over barbell rows, dumbbell rows, and cable pull downs for 3x15-20 for each.
#22818 to #22816 - warkiller (12/27/2014) [-]
I tend to do the same routine for all of my compounds. I just simply used squats as an example.
And thanks. I'll try that and see if it works.

Also, what's your input on rack pulls? I've heard people talk about using rack pulls to increase your deadlift. I've also heard, though, that it doesn't do anything for deadlifts.
User avatar #22819 to #22818 - studbeefpile (12/27/2014) [-]
It depends. If you have a weak lockout, they're great. I used them to improve my lockout.

If you're one of those guys that can finish as long as he breaks the floor, then they have no purpose.

When lifting does one lock the joints or stop before the lock. I've been told both.

Lock out. Full range of motion, keep everything controlled.

Now, don't go slamming your joints out, just make sure everything is straight before going back down.
User avatar #22673 to #22658 - derpityhurr (12/24/2014) [-]
unless youre trying to do some advance time-under-tension type stuff you should lock joints, you fatigue your muscles otherwise
Also, on some exercises not locking joints can lead to injuries (ie bent elbow on deadlift)

dont lock, it fucks your joins
User avatar #22676 to #22661 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
This isn't true.
User avatar #22684 to #22676 - teoberry (12/24/2014) [-]
really? everyone I've ever worked out has told me to push yourself right to locking, but never do.
User avatar #22685 to #22684 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
A lot of people also curl in the squat rack, but that don't make it right.

I've been locking out all of my movements for quite a while now. Never had any joint pain related to it. It's just one of those myths people use to get out of doing more work.
User avatar #22686 to #22685 - teoberry (12/24/2014) [-]
huh. swag. guess ill start doing that then
#22672 to #22661 - anonexplains (12/24/2014) [-]
i assume this goes for pushups and curls as well?

Tyrones Guide to /fit/

It's a good idea to go back to basics every once in a while.

9 is my favorite.

Yesterday was supposed to be my off day, from lifting and from work, but then I got called into work and what did they have me do? Move hundreds of pounds worth of shred, and then move hundreds of pounds of documents, and then move several hundred pound metal cabinets full of documents with a dolley. After 8 hours of that I was sweaty and exhausted, today my biceps and lower back are sore, and I'm supposed to Squat and deadlift today. Awesome.

Just eat like crazy and you'll be fine.

Gotta eat big to get big, Come On!

You're preaching to the choir here brother. Don't you think all that work made me hungry as fuck as it is?
User avatar #22645 to #22644 - studbeefpile (12/23/2014) [-]
Sugar cookies! Fudge! Candy Canes! Entire Turkeys! Strenf Gainz! Abs? Not even once!



User avatar #22647 to #22645 - marinepenguin (12/23/2014) [-]
My family made fudge and sugar cookies yesterday. Then we went to buffalo wild wings and I pigged out on grilled chicken tenders, fries, and wings for about 3 hours. Don't you just love the holidays?
User avatar #22648 to #22647 - studbeefpile (12/23/2014) [-]
Yeah man! Add like 2 sets to all your movements and take advantage of that shit!

Like Eric Thomas said: you can either be the lion or gazelle, either way, you better be running.

Oh I'm gonna power through it. There's no doubt about that.

Let's get it then. It's back and quads day for me.
User avatar #22629 - mendelevium (12/23/2014) [-]
Welp, I might be fucked.
I worked hard for nearly a year to gain 15 lbs of noob gains.
Was sick with a flu so bad I spent two weeks on an IV drip with nothing to eat in a hospital bed, then I couldn't even sit up straight for another week.
Ive been taking it easy for a month and now I lost all inspiration to work out.

Worst of all I lose 10 pounds of what Im sure is muscle cuz I've always been a skinny fuck.

As a last ditch effort to get back into the kick of things I did abs yesterday and the pain that noobs get has come back and is killing me.

What do, I lost it all in 3 weeks because I was in the hospital, and I don't even feel like I can work out anymore.

Also how bad is morphine and codeine?
Because that was my diet for those 3 weeks.
User avatar #22630 to #22629 - marinepenguin (12/23/2014) [-]
You didn't lose 15 pounds of muscle in 3 weeks. And the muscle you may have lost you'll get back pretty quickly. When you sick you lose mostly water weight. Since you were in the hospital for 3 weeks of say you lost some mass too. BUt lost gains take a LOT less time to get back then all new gains.
User avatar #22631 to #22630 - mendelevium (12/23/2014) [-]
I feel pretty shit as well.
Dont know if its the sickness or the lack of exercise but getting out of bed is a challenge at this point.

User avatar #22632 to #22631 - marinepenguin (12/23/2014) [-]
Rest at this point. Just try to eat a lot of protein to cull the damage.
