Hey guys, i want to start doing 5x5, this was recommended to me, but i didn't listen. So if i watch what i eat, and do the basic 5x5, would i see fat loss along with muscle gain? im just a bit chubby, size 34 in pants, and im 5"7' 170 pounds. I keep reading 5x5 is not for 5 loss, but if its weight lifting, shouldn't i tone up and lose fat also?

For a few months, if you're new to training, you should recomposite your body, but after that you'll either need to change up your training to strength for compound movements but hypertrophy for accessories, and add some cardio in to continue seeing the same sort of thing

Favorite post workout shakes? I like banana/blueberry/strawberry with half a cup of milk. Not really ideal in any way I know but it's my favorite. Sometimes I throw in some broccoli and kale since they're good for you and I can barely taste.

1 cup of milk

3-4 scoops of Critical Shock After mass

Chocolate syrup because it's delicious and I love chocolate
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Well when I'm eating that much I'm usually lifting with ridiculous volumes, running, and doing conditioning too.

And IF is okay, it's helped me lean out a little in the past, but I wouldn't use it as a permanent strategy.

Professionally? So you box for a living? I have a hard time believing that. You should post vids of your lifting. I have a difficult time believing you bench 260, as well.

One thing I know for sure is there are very few people in shape at the levels of most boxers. I just started trying out adding whey protein to my fatty shake, half a cup blueberries, half a cup raspberries, half a cup strawberries, and half a cup milk. I haven't been measuring the amount of protein I get like I have my calories but I eat meat or fish every night. Usually atlantic salmon, chicken breasts, and steak once a week because I fucking love steak. Normally I just drink a shake made of various fruits for lunch in substitute for a midday meal, just recently started post workouts.

I think that's why I'm unbeaten so far. I sit at 180-185 when I'm not leading up to a weigh in, with some pretty decent mass because I lift, and cut down to middleweight for fights, so I've got a better composition than most of the guys that box. I've also been boxing for 5 years, and spent the last year boxing 2-3 hours a day most days so that definitely helps. Sounds like a great shake, the raspberries would fuck me up though cause I'm allergic. Sounds lie a solid diet to be fair. When I'm cutting down I eat a shitload of protein and do intermittent fasting, usually get 1800-2000 calories

I've heard good things about intermittent fasting but I'm not quite that level into it yet. I made the mistake of dieting down to <1000cal a day for two months. Dropped 25lbs but now my gut's a little fucky. I started adding that shake into it the mix along with my normal breakfast of eatmeal/eggs, lunch of broccoli/carrots/kale in a broth and protein dinner to try to even out and sit at 1500 cal.

I definitely couldn't hack that much of a deficit, I passed out when I tried 1400. Some mad weight to drop in two months though, my man! Must be proud! I think the reason IF works for me is that it lets me eat something substantial after training without cheating on my diet. Had a big session this morning so my feed period consisted of a Tuna sandwich, a Chicken wrap, a steak pasty and a tub of pasta

15 minutes is a long as fuck interval for bag work! I've sparred with martial artists before and it's tough for both of us because of the different disciplines. Especially a friend of mine, who practices Savate, he broke my wrist with a kick

I love skipping, great cardio and great for developing footwork and coorination. A lot of new fighters don't understand the importance of it, but it's great for having your feet move according to your hands, being able to move the feet precisely without having to glance dow. You can tell when a boxer just boxes as soon as you step in the ring with them because they're not aware of what position their feet are in enough. Easy enough to develop with ladder runs, box jumps and skipping

Yeah I suppose it might be more beneficial for smaller intervals with more intensity, I just haven't really tried fine tuning anything up to this point other than diet. For sure on the differing styles though, lost a tooth to a boxer once because, and I quote "Everyone should know the cross follows the step body straight body hook.". I did not.

I do enjoy hammering a bag, have for the longest. tried doing some amateur MMA when I was 17 but never got too much into it before I went off to college, def didn't go undefeated. My cardio workout (Which is tomorrow) consist of 15 minute intervals of going ham on heavy bag, 1 minute rest and water, 15 minute jump rope, 1 min rest and water, repeat 3 times then sprints for 10 minutes(30 second sprint 30 second rest).

What's your opinion on jump rope? I think it's one of the best workouts out there as far as general usefulness, gets calf muscles for days and real good cardio.

Is there such a thing as an ideal weight? Like a weight that is the most healthy (given that you exercise regularly). And if so, how do you calculate it.
#44964 to #44957 - KMD
Reply +1
(04/30/2016) [-]
An ideal weight is very hard to determine. You're best bet is to go off of body fat %. So if i'm 6'3" and 245lbs at 25% bf v.s. being 6'3" 245lbs and 12%bf theres a huge difference without changing the weight. Now if your bf% is at a nominal level, say 12-15% bf, and you can keep it in that range while you put on muscle you'll eventually reach an uncomfortable weight for your build/ height. So in order to find YOUR ideal weight you're going to need to bring the body fat down to an optimal level then start packing on the pounds until you feel comfortable. That's really the only way to find your individual ideal weight in an ideal world. This should take about 3-5 years with a serious commitment & coach.

Not that I know of. Personally I hate using BMI anyways. Generally there's a large range of weights where you can be healthy depending on your levels of muscle mass and body fat.

That was the back of the supplement center, they had a rack and 80lb heaviest dumbbells and there was no deadlifting allowed because of the telemarketer downstairs. They're opening their actual gym in a few months for $20 a month, and I've seen the equipment

But for a little while its this AIDS or Planet

Offer to buy used log to save the owner trouble
Hey Mr. Owner can I keep this piece of equipment I just purchased in your storage area while I'm not using it?

It's a win win.

First pull day. I found that I'm really limited on barbell lifts by my grip, I went from deadlifts, to cheater rows,to shrugs and I was always having to stop because of my grip failing. That seems to be a serious problem of mine.

Went pretty light today to get back into the flow of things. Did some sets of 8 with 275 on deadlifts, sets of 12 on rows with 185, then sets of 15 with 185 on shrugs. Did machines or dumbbells for the rest.

Just bought a ton of extra food I plan on eating in these last 2.5 weeks in Texas.

For someone who hasn't been lifting all that long, does 3 sets 4 pumps at 130lb sound good for benching? I can't do more than four and I am skeptical of a 150 max but it's somewhere around. Need to even out the fatty mantits. Diet as well of course, eating <1000cal a day.

At less than 1000cals/day for as long as you have been doing it is very un-healthy.
what you're doing is starving your body of any outside fuel sources causing your metabolism to shut down. You think "hey iv'e lost a bunch of weight this way by essentially not eating so it works". Now when you reach your target weight what your body is going to be doing is trying to survive by storing any food that you eat into long term storage more or less. So if you get your weight down and you're feeling good and you want to start building muscle whats going to happen is that any carb or fat sources that you take in wont be used as short term fuel by your body like its supposed to. Instead it will be stored as fat. The kicker is the longer and more drastically you diet like this the longer it will take your metabolism to return to a state where it will actually burn the calories from what your eating. Before it returns to normal all you're going to do is put on more and more fat. In extreme cases (Bodybuilders/fitness & figure athletes that do consecutive shows) it could take years to re-start your metabolism. You'r best bet would be to go find a registered dietitian and get an actual diet sorted out before you seriously hurt your insides.

So would a better way to correct this be to just start eating more, let's say, 1500 calories a day right now, or gradually increase? Also I am building some muscle as well, not a huge amount or anything but a small noticeable amount.

How heavy/tall are you? Because there are very few times anyone should ever be eating that few of calories. I'm glad you've seen progress, 25 pounds is awesome, but you'll hit a wall pretty quick and won't see any more progress.

I'd been acting a fool saying I was gonna get in better shape for the longest, and then one day I just decided to hit the ground as hard as I could and keep it going. Been dieting like this for almost 2 months with one day of 2k-2.5k a week. At this point I've just gotten used to it. If I'm not mistaken with my somewhat physically demanding job and modest workout routine I can probably eat 2k a day and maybe lose a little, or 1.5k a day and go a bit more steady. Staved off fruit for the longest but I love it, thought of at least adding a all fruit smoothie for a jump of around 400cal.

Generally you want to eat around 200-400 calories below maintenance for consistent weight loss. But if what you're doing is working for you currently I won't tell you to change things up. Just keep your protein high.

We did 315 2x5 after hitting 385 and 395 respectively, I found out 2 things. 1 is that during reps my belt rides up horrifically and stops doing its job around rep 4, and 2 is that you actually need to inhale/exhale while pushing through the final rep of a second set otherwise you're going to fucking die

Ever try putting the front underneath your front-butt but keep the back of your belt over your erectors? That way you'll also protect against any hernias if you try to lift any heavy ass weight.

I am about 5 foot 7 and a half and weigh around 175-180, i definitely still have fat on my body but over the last 2 years have probably put on about 15 pounds of muscle from football and working out in general, My Bench max right now is 210, squat 305 and power clean 155, I have terrible form lower body and have no clue how i ever managed to get 305. I still jiggle when i walk and i dont want to anymore. I want to come back from college next year having a six pack of abs, what are some exercises or websites that have good ab work outs as well as general muscle building workouts as well. I would always love to increase a max on a lift but I would love to look more well defined. Any suggestions guys?
