I workout 3 times a week (4-6 hours) and I am about 184 cm (6 feet?) and weight about 84 kg. Ive just purchased some whey protein but not sure how much to take. And if I should before under or after a workout. Any suggestions/tips?
#25666 to #25650 - fefe (02/08/2015) [-]
KungFuZerO sounds about right. 1g protein per 1pound of your weight. I think it just depends on how much protein you need after all your meals and such. I believe it's just personal preference. I drink 3scoops of whey protein a day: one in the morning, one after a work out, and one before bed. The brand I use has 20g protein per scoop, so I take in 60g of whey a day. Some people drink it before a workout, but I prefer to not have a full stomach since I start with cardio. There may be directions/suggestions on the jar or whatever, unless you're buying 100% whey and not some sort of protein shake, in which case I have no idea. I'd say take it whenever or in the morning.
#25663 to #25650 - KungFuZerO (02/08/2015) [-]
Literally everything that anon said is wrong. Take the protein powder once a day, at any time, but make sure you're getting about 180g of protein per day (1g per pound of bodyweight) for maximum muscle gain. The number of scoops depends on how much protein you need to reach that number.
#25653 to #25650 - fefe (02/08/2015) [-]
whey protein is a meal replacement so depending on the time you go you could have before or after. After a workout though your body is searching for protein so taking some right after your done is good for you. I do 4 scoops a day of protein
User avatar #25652 to #25650 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/07/2015) [-]
2 scoops after a workout is usually good.
User avatar #25660 to #25652 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/08/2015) [-]
I usually hit 60g of protein more then I need per day with just 1 scoop of 30g. I'm guessing you hit above ur normal too so why do you take 2 scoops?
User avatar #25665 to #25660 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/08/2015) [-]
Mine are around 20 grams for each scoop. So 40 grams from a shake is normal for me.

Health question: My teeth have been hurting recently. I think it has something to do with sugar. I do have cavities that I have poorly managed since I have first had them. I ate something sugary days ago, and that caused sharp pain in my teeth, mainly in one area. That sharp pain had been recurring, and I just went 2 days without it. Should I be worried? If the pain goes away, does that mean that it's going somewhere inside of me?

FYI, for whom does reply: here's what I've been doing recently to try to help heal myself: Chew minty gum, and used mouth wash

So I've been running a lot lately, and just recently my shin splints have gotten pretty bad

what's the best way to decrease the pain you feel and how to prevent the splints?
User avatar #25657 to #25637 - advice (02/08/2015) [-]
I did cross country for a bit, you may need to get different shoes, change your stride, increase your warm ups, wear thicker socks, buy gel insoles, there is a LOT you can do.
User avatar #25647 to #25637 - Draigor (02/07/2015) [-]
I've heard that properly warming up helps alot, along with landing on the balls of your feet instead of slamming your heels in the ground with each step. Landing on your heels transfers all that force to your shins. Also wouldn't hurt to ice your shins after a run
User avatar #25656 to #25647 - bionicpanda ONLINE (02/08/2015) [-]
Yeah I heard about the landing on your heels thing.

running question
is it normal to feel like i'm gonna collapse while i'm forcing myself to run (can still move but heart can't keep up) or is it because i'm just out of shape

You are out of shape. The more you run, the more your heart and lungs will improve in pumping and capacity, respectively.

"Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-tow minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a-half minutes per mile].
So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.”
I said, “Bruce, I can’t go five. I’m a helluva lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.”
He said, “When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do it.”
I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.”
So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out.
I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” — and we’re still running — “if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles.
Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”

That's good in theory. Not so much in practice. Limits exist for a reason, constantly trying to surpass them gets you hurt.

Knew a guy who ran so hard he got a hernia. It's one thing to run an extra mile in a workout, but limits do exist for a reason and should be acknowledged. Telling someone to push themselves to their limits constantly is terrible advice.

Stayin inside being a sad cunt wont get you anywhere in life. I used to be like you, staying inside and playing WoW all day. I said fuck dat shit, brah. Im gonna get gains and drown in pussy, which I did.

You clearly know nothing about modelling lmao, it doesn't mean you're atheistic at all. It depends what you're modelling for, and you should know that Paris isn't the modelling highlight, Italy is.

You know it's a career choice? You aren't just forced into modelling, right?
If someone wanted to make a difference to the world by contributing to an understanding of medicine and improving it, even with the prospect of being a model present, they'd take the thing they wanted most. To someone who isn't egotastic and strives for the best and to show the best in people, they'd choose the first.

You're the lowest of the low, you couldn't of been anything more than a model, I'm sorry for you, I'm sorry you have no academia and are a shitbrain. You could try doing both but it's difficult to balance at the top end, I should know because I have friends that are fucking models.

#25627 to #25626 - itszyzzbrah (02/07/2015) [-]
It aint about the girls, m8.
It's about your own body. Bitches are replaceable and can be lost. Aesthetics are with you forever. You can wake up everyday and be mirin' at your sick shredded body. Tell me a better feelin than that brah, there aint. At least none for me.

And there's levels of autism. Saying a guy is full on autistic means he's mentally handicapped with a severe problem. He'd most likely not attempt to gain sick gains because he does not care about aesthetics. He can jack off to ponies instead, and if thats what the man likes, so be it. He fuckin proved to himself he found what he wants in life and made it his reality. He may not be a sick cunt like you and me brah, but he is still a sick cunt inside. He made it.

Those that may think theyre autistic, yet theyre chasing their dreams about being aesthetically fit to get bitches, theyre not really autistic. They suffer from social anxiety. And for many of these sad cunts, lifting is the only solution. That's what the Zyzz Revolution is all about. Good luck to all you bros, youre all sickkunts if you wanna be.

Yall are usually smart about this stuff, so here it goes--I currently have a healthy BMI although im like one point away from being unhealthy but my fat percentage is unhealthy, im at 3.48 percent body fat, and 2-5% is the essentials, should i stop working out so i can gain fat?

Cable crunches, planks, side planks, hanging V-holds.
For cable crunches, start light, get the form perfect, and perform around 4x12. Its spinal flexion, not hip flexion. Do these 2-3x per week.

Damn, that sucks. Planks and side planks are still viable, V-holds can be done on the ground as well. Besides that try weighted crunches on the ground with a DB on your chest or help straight up. Remember, hypertrophy is 4x12. If you're doing 100 unweighted sit-ups, you're waisting your time.

Thats what I just said:
"Besides that try weighted crunches on the ground with a DB on your chest or help straight up."
That stuff isn't great. Russian twists are ok, side bends can be replaced with weighted side planks, and crunches with a DB is good but make sure the db is high on the chest to get the best workout.

Running long distance for basketball won't do you any good, basketball isn't endurance as much as it is being able to maintain an inconsistent amount of explosive speed and agility over a longer period of time. You need to get good at sprinting, and being able to change direction quickly. Why do you think suicides are the main form of exercise for most coaches?

Lifting wise, strength and explosiveness will really help you with your jump and being able to maneuver down low and in the paint.

I guess I should do sprints and conditioning drills as well, but It would do me good to lose some of this weight I have. I am probably 20-30 pounds overweight, and looking to cut down on that by the end of summer. Right now I am 230 pounds, and I am shooting for 190-200. It would definitely make doing drills and exercising easier.

Why do you want to run long distance? There are a lot better, easier, and less injury-prone ways to lose healthy weight than steady state cardio.

When it comes to someone who's overweight and wanting to lose fat,almost anything else.

Dieting alone would work better.

Dieting combined with HIIT would work great.

If you have access to a gym, doing some lifting would only accelerate the process. On top of improving your athleticism in general.

I am 16, and my parents have been saying they will get a gym member shit since october. Even when they are offered free 2 month trials they still don't do anything about it. So the gym is out of the question. However, I do have weights in my garage. Just no lifting partner.
User avatar #25570 to #25567 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
If you don't have access weights, research HIIT, research shit about dieting and what you need to do for you.

Your high school doesn't have a weight room?

www.amazon.de/Fit-ohne-Ger%C3%A4te-90-Tage-Challen

I'm planning on getting this to workout at home (I wanted to start my diet like two months ago, but christmas/finals season isn't exactly the best time for me to start, since I start devouring anything edible within my reach).
Would you say this is recommendable for a starter? Reviews say it has a 90 days plan which you can follow.

Nutrition wise I can get back to my "no sugar, all protein" nutrition from a year ago, since I'll write my final exam on monday.

Huh, strange.

It's a book by Mark Lauren, which I'd had to freely translate from German to English.
Something like: "Fit with no Equipment: 90 days challenge".

Too broke to sign up for a gym atm and, to be honest, I'm not a big fan of gyms anyway, so I'd preferably work out at home.
User avatar #25554 to #25551 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
You can get fit with purely bodyweight movements, but adding just a few things like just a few kettlebells could instantly make you even better and build an even better body.

Just be wary of these "fit in (insert time period here)". Being fit isn't something that you can just acquire, it's a life decision. To be fit you have to have a dedicated routine throughout your day to be fit and maintain an active lifestyle. I've seen so many people reach their goals and then say, "sweet, I got what I wanted, now I'm done". Then in 6 months they have to do it all over again because they didn't continue to better themselves or even maintain it.

Being fit isn't a body type or end goal, it's a lifestyle.

tbh I don't want to get all super slim and super muscular and stuff. I'm trying for ages now to efficiently lose both weight and some of my excessive volume. I'll try to keep up with it as much as I can, but since I know that I couldn't keep that lifestysle decision, as you called it, for an exactly long period of time, I'm glad with losing about 30 kg so I get to a less unhealthy 90kg.

Which I won't achieve in 3 months, obviously, I am aware of that, don't worry
User avatar #25559 to #25556 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
Maintaining a lifestyle like that isn't difficult. It's only difficult if you thrust yourself into it all at once. Take baby steps with nutrition and workouts. Why anyone wouldn't want to be muscular and atheletic is beyond me, there is quite literally nothing but bonuses to being lean, muscular, and fit.

Lose the weight you want to, but don't focus so much on the scale, focus more on the mirror. Achieve the look you want, not the weight. You can look vastly different at 180 pounds, or you could still look chubby, and just a smaller version of yourself.
User avatar #25562 to #25559 - mion (02/06/2015) [-]
Well... might be the fact that I'm gluttonous. Like, seriously. If I open a bag of chips, that bag is gone. I lack self control when it comes to food, god knows why, since I have self control in pretty much any other situation of my life.

Also, being fat all my life, I just can't see myself posing infront of a mirror super fit and stuff.
User avatar #25566 to #25562 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
Anyone can be fit, anyone can learn to hate the foods that they once loved. I used to have a soda or two a day in high school. Now having just one sip makes me have serious stomach acid and I can't touch it anymore. Like I said, baby steps. Start off by replacing soda and juices with water.
User avatar #25568 to #25566 - mion (02/06/2015) [-]
I only have water at home. I usually add half a lemon/ some slices of ginger to about 700ml of water, of which I drink 3 - 4 bottles/day.

It's mainly the part of me eating uncontrollably, really, which makes it so hard for me to lose weight. And my malfuntioning thyroid, according to my doc.
User avatar #25571 to #25568 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
Then stop buying that shit. Tell your parents to stop buying it. Encourage them to buy healthier foods, everyone struggles if they see the good food laying around their house. You gotta eliminate that shit.
User avatar #25572 to #25571 - mion (02/06/2015) [-]
living alone. I'm a wreck

Anyway, as I said, I will be able to repick up my diet (low carb/high proteiny shit) once I get my final exam done on monday. Kinda looking forward to it, since it's pretty simple to buy food as I completely lay down fruit sugar and lactosis

the latter of which making me occupy the pot for half an hour anyway :/
User avatar #25575 to #25572 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
Carbs are good, especially when you are exercising. No carb, or low carb diets, suck ass and rarely work long term. They just make you lose weight by depleting your muscles of glycogen and water. You rarely lose good weight.

Chicken breast, veggies, fruits, eggs, lean meats. Shit that isn't processed or in a box. Figure out how many calories you need, eat around 10% below that. Then add in exercise. Like I said before, HIIT, and some form of strength training works best when combined with good dieting.
User avatar #25579 to #25578 - mion (02/06/2015) [-]
According to the internet, I'd need about 2500kcal/day, so basically 2250/day + working out?

Ugh... counting calories is the worst thing that could happen to me D:

Again, thanks for your precious advice, you've been a great help
User avatar #25580 to #25579 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
No problem. And you don't need to constantly count your calories. Only do that for around a month or so, after that you'll get used to eating the right amounts of food and it'll be easy.

If you start stalling, check your weight, recalculate, then do it all again. Losing around 2 pounds a week should be expected if you do it right, but it should be mostly all fat.
User avatar #25611 to #25580 - mion (02/07/2015) [-]
A question that just popped to my mind (sorry to bother you again D

I have eaten my 3 meals for today and I have eaten 1429 calories, so I still have 800 "to go". Can I leave them out or do I have to somehow include them into my diet?
User avatar #25632 to #25611 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/07/2015) [-]
You should be eating that much in a day. No matter what. If you cut out too many calories your diet will become inconsistent and you'll start to just feel crappy and won't be able to maintain the diet.
User avatar #25633 to #25632 - mion (02/07/2015) [-]
So include them. Oh boy, let's see what healthy stuff I can chuck in to get some more calories ._.

You don't need to get slimmer. You are already incredibly slim.

I use my brain for the most part, but I just started jotting down my main work sets on my profile.

User avatar #25528 to #25525 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
I log everything I do. Every rep, every set, and what weight I used. I even write notes to let myself know how I felt about specific sets if I'm trying something new or to remind myself how difficult something was, or if I did a slower cadence, stuff like that.
#25515 - fefe (02/06/2015) [-]
Somewhat OT, but I don't know where else I could post this, so bear with me please.

Hey guys,

I have a huge problem (or rather, small, if you want to see it that way).
I'm 20 y/o, a fat fuck (234lbs/117kg) and I'm really unhappy with my dick's size. It's only about 7 - 8cm long erected and barely visible when it's limp (about 7 - 8x4cm)

I read several times on the internet that my dick will grow a little in size when I lose weight, can anyone confirm? I don't want to end up as a size queen, 10 - 12cm erected would completely suffice for me to be content with little me.
Any other advices? Like docs I should/could visit? Urologist? Endocrinologist?
I also suffer from hypothyroidism, could that be a reason either?
User avatar #25521 to #25515 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/06/2015) [-]
Sometimes when you are overweight the fat will cover up some of it and make it look smaller. Otherwise you are pretty much stuck the way you are.
#25516 to #25515 - fefe (02/06/2015) [-]
Wow, this is unexpected.

However, your questions have answers.
Your penis won't so much grow as it will become more available. There is a reservoir of fat that builds over the pubic bone essentially on and around your genitals. If you loose fat weight, the size of it decreases just like everywhere else. So yes if you loose weight your penis will become revealed.
I don't know how much your weight factors in though. 234 lbs while not light is also not super heavy so the effectiveness of this approach is dependent on your height relative to your weight. Consider being 5'6" versus 6'2" at the same weight. Take that into account for your expectations.
What might help is if you find a proper way of measuring to give you a better idea of what is really going on. Look this up, particularly something called bone pressed length, which is what is used for most scientific studies. Your result will not be super accurate if your "fat pad" is significant but it may give you some guidance as to weather or not your should look for medical assistance.
#25518 to #25516 - fefe (02/06/2015) [-]
I can personally say that yes, the weight loss has made a difference, I can say measurement wise it's changed anything since it's not something I kept track of but there is definitively significant improvement in presentation and performance. Pardon the euphemism. If you really are concerned about the size you can speak with a urologist to get some clear answer as to what is going on. If you have not recently evaluated your hypothyroidism (please don't be self-diagnosed) you may wish to revisit with your specialist to see if it may be affecting your growth and seek an appropriate medical solution.
#25519 to #25518 - fefe (02/06/2015) [-]
I don't know if it will help you but you can also get some perspective from becoming educated. I know that it can be embarrassing to address what we see as shortcomings or inadequacies openly but there are things one must learn to accept and embrace. I felt a great deal of anxiety at one point about a number of personal issues and I think most men feel the way that you do regardless of what is actually going on in the world versus what they think is the norm.

There are 3 documentaries that I would suggest you watch to give you perspective. One is by a bloke from England, it's called "My Penis and Me' and "My Penis and Everyone Else's". The last one is called "Unhung Hero". Hero is on Netflix, the others are available online in multiple places.
