I used to run a weekly of 15 miles. I stayed at around 130lbs for a good 2 years. Up to recently I stopped running and focused on weight training and gained a solid 30 lbs. I feel way better than I ever had before. I don't plan on running again. Gainz are now life

Keep running. Don't make the mistake I did. You can make gains while still being a decent runner. I weighed 220 while still running a sub-6 minute mile.

405x5 from last night. Decent rep PR after a very small peak. Dropping back down in weight next week, and hitting up more high reps.

I can't do crunches without feeling like asphyxia and dying. I used to do fine, now I can't do 10 without feeling like I'm strangling my throat.

And yes, I'm thin.

A gym is somewhere with a lot of nice benches, plenty of squat racks and caters to people who want to better themselves. Optionally they have lifting platforms and play lots of metal.

Fitness centers offer the idea of trying to better yourself and make you feel like you're accomplishing something. If you want to better yourself, find somewhere with plenty of people who are hard working as well as more experienced than yourself. If you're the biggest/ strongest guy in your gym, it's time for a new one.

This isn't necessarily the truth but from my observation gyms are built with guys in mind while fitness centers are built with women in mind.

Fitness centers usually have separate rooms where classes like yoga and zumba are held. Gyms usually only have one room filled with weights and machines that focus on strength building. You can kind of see why people would be drawn to one or the other.

But apart from that, they're basically identical. You have to pay for both, they both have pretty much the same machines, they both basically have the same hours, you'll get the same kinds of people in both places.

Whichever you choice should be based on convenience and preference.

Tried Anderson Squats today, where you set the bar at the bottom of the squat and start the movement from the bottom. I just did 135 today to get into the swing of things, but I actually felt it pretty well.

I'm going to incorporate it into my leg day after my main squatting, and see how well I can progress on it. If I like it enough I might treat it as a main lift to progress on and see how that effects my overall squatting.

Guys I have a serious problem. I can't squat 405 anymore

In the past 2 weeks I've tried to hit it 4 times. All failed. I've changed nothing with my squat work except adding some rep work on to the end with lighter weight. Meanwhile I neglect my bench and it not only stays good, it got flat out better. 310 for a heavy single is barely resistance anymore, but 385 on squat in low bar, my stronger stance, just had an 8 second grind in the middle

I don't know if it's the cutting or what. I've been going to the gym more, I've been playing videogames less, my diet is clean as a whistle, I even started doing some cardio. I don't want fancy veins anymore, I just want my gains back

Hit 300 for a clean training max today. Followed up with 225, 4x8, all paused.

I've only been benching with rest pause sets for hypertrophy since I've been back. So I don't have a clue if I could even do 205 for more than 4-5.

I'm back to 175 for 12 on my rest pause sets, worked up to a total of 24 reps in a single set with it. Before I left I was doing that with 185 at 25 pounds heavier. So I'll take it as decent improvement so far.

GOMAD is for underweight people. If I did that on top of my normal diet I'd just get fat.

Plus I'm not trying to get my bench up right now. I'm actually doing loaded carries twice a week to see if I can reach a double body weight loaded carry for about 30 yards.

Finally starting my 6 month bulk and i couldn't be happier. being able to eat whatever and already seeing some strength gains but i've accepted that i'm going to get pretty fat in the process. I have terrible self control and being at home for the summer is not going to help that but i'm going to cut as much of the fat when i cut for about 6 months come January. Just feels so good to be able to not worry about every little calorie.

Eyyy das it mayne.

If you've already decided you're going to be super lose with your eating, you need to fully take advantage of that. TONS of volume. Everything ought to be 8+ reps, and 3+ sets. Accessories should be up in the 15-20 rep range, etc. If you're just eating like crazy, and doing shittons of volume, you'll grow like a mofo.

Yeah i switched from 5x5 to 3x10 near the start of my cut because of a shoulder injury and i got recommended to change to 3x10 which i've found i enjoy more that 5x5. I'm hitting my protein macro which is about 170g a day but i usually hit around 200 which is massively overkill and im being fairly loose with everything else because i want to enjoy my summer. Now i'm just trying to put on shit loads of mass because at the end of my 3 1/2 month cut i realized i was just really skinny and don't have enough general mass so that's the aim now, even if i get fat as fuck im still gonna shred through that next year

When you lift heavy weights all the time your body will use a larger percentage of your muscle fibers for more menial tasks compared to untrained people, leading to faster rates of fatigue.

But otherwise, having big legs doesn't mean you desire to walk around more.

I made a post on here a while ago about beginning to improve my health with some exercise. Now I'm thinking about my diet. I know if I tried to cut out soda and junk food all at once, I'd quit. Maybe I'm weak willed, or just a little bitch, whatever, but I really don't think that's an option. Any tips on phasing these things out gradually? I'm especially looking for alternatives to soda. Something to drink besides water that's decently healthy. I've had junk food my whole life, so I really don't know the first thing about eating well.

I recently switched to water from soda, so hopefully what I say might help. At first i was drinking 2 sodas a day and decided to get better so I gradually moved down to one soda. However the biggest leap would be going from cutting soda completely, for which I recommend that you start out by spacing days out you have soda and move into flavored water or Gatorade/Vitamin Water then do the same thing with that to water. Another way I found helpful was if you have a water bottle at hand if you go out so that if you get thirsty you drink from that and get used to it.

Hummus and pita chips are probably a good start for junk food, working your way to using veggies to dip. As for drinks, you could try making homemade iced tea and avoid adding too much sugar and just using lemons, or buy zero calorie water mix of some kind.

So, I've gained back all my weight and then some.

A few years ago I lost 40 pounds, and I could fit in some fabulous clothes, I was 110lb.
I used to be 145lb.

Within the last 2 years, I have gotten a Job where I sit down all day, and my diet mostly consists of fast food, mostly because of it's convenience.
I am now 163lb.

I am so fed up.
So I bought a bunch of pre-set meals (frozen dinners) that range from 250-360 calories each, because I feel like that's what I need to do for a little while, and it'll help me keep track of my caloric intake. And I have vowed to walk at least 5 miles every day.
Wish me luck, guys.

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?

You dont need to workout at all to get there, Im talking what do you want to look like muscle wise.

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.

That's literally one reason people do isolation movements, because there is a greater muscle-mind connection.

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.

Haven't joined a gym yet, have had some thought into it. I'm a bit unsure of it as i wouldn't know what and/or how to do things.


I'll pass on that becoming your son. Haven't had a good farther figure, you know...was eaten alive?

Push Ups, Pull Ups, Jumps and Sprints are an okay place to start in order to develop kinesthetic awareness, but you'll ultimately get the best results from Barbell training.

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.

Fuck front squats man, they make you feel like a bitch. My working sets are a good 80lbs below my back squats, and it's more difficult to get through them.

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.
