Not fapping allows your testosterone level to get to a higher average than when you masturbate regularly. Higher testosterone is important for muscle growth

Am I the only one who finds massive weight loss transformations fascinating? The skin repair, the muscle tone, the stretch marks, everything.

Heres one the more successful transformations, and considering it only took a year and it seems like his body made a full recovery it's shocking.

300 pounds to 170 in a year with almost no visible skin damage, visible abdominals and toned biceps. His nipples are a little large but all in all massive recovery.

So another question.

So would doing planks daily help cut down on body fat?
User avatar #18617 to #18527 - jokerjack (09/29/2014) [-]
You can't spot train fat. The body puts fat where it wants to, and pulls off where it wants to, as determined by genetics or some shit we can't control. You can just lower overall body fat percentages through either burning fat on a caloric deficit or increasing muscle mass.

Planks though would definitely help with your core strength and posture, giving the appearance of a flatter stomach like I'm sure you want
User avatar #18551 to #18527 - unncommon (09/28/2014) [-]
Help?
Yes.
The way you think?
No.
User avatar #18528 to #18527 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
Not really.
User avatar #18529 to #18528 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
Ok. Is there something alternative to heavy cardio that i can do? Something that i can substitute in with light cardio?
User avatar #18530 to #18529 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
A regular weight lifting routine. It'll raise your metabolism and will maintain your muscle mass as you lose weight.
User avatar #18531 to #18530 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
Well i only have a small set of dumbbells which have 7.5 and a 2.5 lb weight on each side. I mean can i work with this?
User avatar #18532 to #18531 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
No, I'm talking a real weight lifting program. Not some curls with 10-20 pounds. Cardio will work, for now. But it'll be easier in the long run using strength training.
User avatar #18547 to #18532 - donnybergerstory (09/28/2014) [-]
Wow, for me I thought it was the opposite. I've stopped seeing results all of a sudden so I am gonna start cutting. I only used to do hard weight training and thought that it would help me lose fat. I lost some fat for awhile, then started up cardio and I lost a lot more weight but it stopped. I thought the weight training was making it harder to lose fat cause I wan't doing enough cardio.
User avatar #18548 to #18547 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
Weight training completely by itself isn't effective against losing fat (when overweight anyways). You should have it compliment another form of exercise built for weight loss, like HIIT or cardio. Those will shred the fat off of you, weight training keeps your metabolism higher, and helps you hold on to the muscle mass you have. Cardio alone will burn a pound of muscle for every 3 or 4 pounds of fat. Complimenting cardio with weight training will burn nearly pure muscle.
User avatar #18533 to #18532 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
ok so i think i can invest in a decent weight set. Do you have anything to reccomend?
User avatar #18534 to #18533 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
Well to have a proper set of weights at home to work with. You'd need a few hundred bucks at the bare bones.

My home gym does the job, and it was at least 1200 worth of weights and stuff.

If I were you I'd invest in a bench, a small squat rack. And around 200-300 pounds of weights.
User avatar #18535 to #18534 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
So somewhere like sports authority would be a good place to start?
User avatar #18537 to #18535 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
You can also get them online, but I would only do that for the sets themselves, buying weights online would cost a fortune for obvious reasons.
User avatar #18536 to #18535 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
Yeah, that and dicks sporting goods, scheels, and any other outdoors/activity based sports store.
User avatar #18538 to #18536 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
Ok saying that i get the weights. What would a good routine be for what i need?
User avatar #18539 to #18538 - marinepenguin (09/28/2014) [-]
Well you won't get much stronger while trying to lose weight. But I'd follow your basic Starting Strength workout. Look it up. It's by Mark Rippetoe.
User avatar #18540 to #18539 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]

Well, realize why you want to get fit, lose/gain weight, and think about it in workouts. Thats more what I was tryin' to say.
User avatar #18521 to #18520 - ashinydoornob ONLINE (09/28/2014) [-]
Yeah i got what you meant. Its just i always think that end then i end up putting it off. I really embarrassed to even admit it. Its even worse because i have a heart condition (Not super serious btw). The condition makes it hard to do cardio workout for more than like 5 minutes at a time.
User avatar #18522 to #18521 - mynameisfinn (09/28/2014) [-]
I'm just going by what I know or what works for me here. With the heart thing, I have no idea where to go from that. Only thing I could say with confidence is just do as much as you can.

can immediate care give diet pills? i dont care if any are bad, just want to know
User avatar #18553 to #18515 - unncommon (09/28/2014) [-]
Do not take diet pills, they kill you and don't give you any results without serious use.
#18585 to #18553 - imtryingmybest (09/29/2014) [-]
they do not, its only if you overdose
User avatar #18549 to #18515 - sciencexplain (09/28/2014) [-]
Diet pills aren't immediate care based. Diet pills are lifestyle and unnecessary, so they won't provide you that. If you want them, you need a decent medical reason and signings from a doctor as approval, or get shop ones.
#18587 to #18549 - imtryingmybest (09/29/2014) [-]
is that a yes or no, you guys are so blah blah blah blah blah
User avatar #18604 to #18587 - sciencexplain (09/29/2014) [-]
It's a no. Avoid diet pills at all costs unless recommended by a qualified doctor.
#18609 to #18604 - imtryingmybest (09/29/2014) [-]
well im gonna anyway
User avatar #18610 to #18609 - sciencexplain (09/29/2014) [-]
Well then don't overdo it. Take the recommended amount, don't exceed it. It will just end up with you being unhealthier than before.
#18618 to #18610 - imtryingmybest (09/29/2014) [-]
i dont think theyre that unhealthy unless you overdose or get mixed with medicine that makes it bad
User avatar #18619 to #18618 - sciencexplain (09/29/2014) [-]
They're unhealthy as fuck. The only healthy way to pursue weight loss is eating right and exercising well. Any other methods are short term and don't provide the lifestyle change you need to better yourself and make being healthy part of your life.
#18634 to #18619 - imtryingmybest (09/29/2014) [-]
ive been eating right and exercising for over a year plus the activity from work. not a pound. plus i know all of the health foods and exercise info, i got 100% in my nutrition class without any extra credit or studying
User avatar #18657 to #18634 - sciencexplain (09/30/2014) [-]
In that case, maybe I could help. If you send me your food plan and exercise plan with the necessary information, I could help you out where I could. How old are you?

Does anyone know what the best chest/ab workouts are?
#18590 to #18514 - KungFuZerO (09/29/2014) [-]
Chest: Healthy mix of bb and db bench press.
Abs: Low BF%, and after that, weighted/8-10RM exercises like weighted decline crunches, cable crunches and toe-to-bars. Personally, I really like swiss ball crunches and decline reverse crunches added on to that.
User avatar #18554 to #18514 - unncommon (09/28/2014) [-]

Putting it in your mouth would be a start.

For serious though, protein supplements serve the sole purpose of getting in those grams you're not hitting in regular meals. There's nothing magical in whey that makes you grow, it's just more protein. That being understood, timing isn't super important, just take it throughout the day whenever you can get it in, and make sure you're getting enough protein per day (around 1 gram per pound of lean body mass i.e. I weigh 205, but I'd be shredded at 180, so I eat 180 grams per day).

So, I'm trying to get a flatter stomach. I'm not fat by any means, but my stomach definitely protrudes more than it should. I've gotten pretty self conscious about it. I've asked a few people what I should do. My step-father said its just because I don't have a very strong core, but others have said its a layer of fat on my stomach. I'm more prone to believe my step-father, because when I flex even slightly, I get the stomach I want. But I want to be able to have that without constantly flexing. So, what should I do. I'm not trying to get swole, and I'm not that interested in getting abs. I don't have the time to devote to that kind of workout regimen. What would /fit suggest?
#18591 to #18488 - KungFuZerO (09/29/2014) [-]
Getting a strong core might help. My guess would be bad posture. A lot of people have anteriorly tilted hips bc everyone sits all day. Try hamstring exercises like deadlifts to strengthen hip extensors and align your pelvic bowl.
User avatar #18494 to #18488 - derpityhurr (09/27/2014) [-]
do like 3 1-minute planks a day if you think the problem is weak abdominals

One right after another or spread throughout the day? I don't know much about fitness, obviously.

Driink some lean muscle protein. I drink GNC's lean shake burn. It will support looking toned.

I would suggest looking on bodybuilding.com for some workout plans.

My grandparents just left after staying for a night, my grandfather just told me to eat more and put some weight on my frame. He was a huge football player, played in the NFL for a few seasons in the 60s for the Broncos. He also coached NFL hall of gamers while they were in high school, and coached guys like Ben Rothlessberger in college while he coached at Miami of Ohio. Knowing that he still sees me as his skinny grandkid makes me want to get even bigger

I think it's motivating more then anything. I've had all kinds of people come up to me and compliment me on how good I look and how strong I look, and then my grandpa comes over and just says that I look skinny and need to eat more. It's almost funny I'd say.

Don't cut out carbs, Reduce total calorie intake, the easiest way to do that is to reduce fat intake which has more than double the amount of calories per gram compared to carbs
User avatar #18476 to #18459 - donnybergerstory (09/27/2014) [-]
Chicken breast, brocolli, eggs, salad, lean protein shakes.

I use this protein, gets you energized, has l-carnitine which helps you body use fat as an energy source, so it's good for gaining lean muscle: www.gnc.com/GNC-Total-Lean-Lean-Shake-BURN-Chocolate-Fudge/product.jsp?productId=33755596

Really though, losing weight just depends on your caloric intake. (I'm bout to hit you with some bro science.) Many say "eat what you want as long as your at a caloric deficit", which basically means your burning more calories than you eat. Honestly, I somewhat agree with this but very little. Eat chicken, it has 0 carbs, low calorie (~200 calories per chicken breast). Brocolli is also a super food, which I love to eat. It will help you with overall health and allow you to lose weight a lot easier. Eggs are low calorie and are great for breakfast. Salad itself (lettuce), really won't do much for your overall health. But mixing it with other things is just a great way to pack a lot of veggies, chicken, and other things into one healthy meal that will make you feel full without a lot of calories. Also, you have to drink A LOT of water. I try to drink about a gallon a day, and it will make you feel full, has 0 calories, and will help you burn fat a lot easier.

Supplements:
I already listed the protein I take. If I were you, I would drink that or maybe GNC's wheybolic protein: www.gnc.com/GNC-Pro-Performance-AMP-Amplified-Wheybolic-Extreme-60-Original-Chocolate-Limited-Edition-Value-Size/product.jsp?productId=41420326 It is really good for staying in shape. It's got some BCAA's, L-Canitine and will really help you see results. I know it sounds like I am sucking GNC's dick, but I am just suggesting supps that I know of. Secondly, take a BCAA drink. I recommend Alpha Amino by cellucor. They will help you recover faster. I am running out of characters, so I will just stop here. Start doing your research. Watch youtube videos for tips. Good luck!

The station that I volunteered at had a full gym, but we mainly just reserved that to the pros. After working an 8 hour shift you don't have a lot of energy to work out at the fire house.
