Need advice for a tight schedule & cutting.

Until the next 3-4 weeks, I have to train as a base in a cheerleader team, monday-friday from 7pm-12pm. Those hours is the only time I can go to the gym since my schedule is pretty busy and my gym don't open 24/7. I managed to workout in the afternoon after class for a while, but I feel like shit when lifting those bitches up in the air because I only have like an hour free time between finished workout and the training. I'm pretty sure there's no way I can recover in an hour, so for a while, I only lift 1/4-1/2 less weight than usual so I can still have energy for my training but I don't think it's enough.

I'm currently trying to cut to get dem abs, so I'm thinking to just focus with abs (since it's the least used in training, not because I believe I can spot reduce fat) everytime I go to gym and lift with less weight or reps for other muscle groups so I don't feel sore when training as a cheerleader.

Is this a good plan?

fat burners, good or bad idea?
User avatar #29181 to #29161 - dreygur ONLINE (04/10/2015) [-]
Nah, miracle treatments are almost always shady. Cutting down on food and daily exercise is very easy after you've asked a dietist for directions.
User avatar #29162 to #29161 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
Like the drug? Absolute bull unless you are obese. And even then they're not good on their own.

Only one fat burning pill has proven extremely effective, and it's so effective you die after using it for more then 6-8 days.
User avatar #29170 to #29168 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
Just read through most of their ingredients. All these are, are appetite supressants to make you want to eat less and then some caffeine to give you energy.

If you diet right and exercise, these could possibly hurt your progress. Eating too little could be bad, and at 300+ pounds, your blood pressure is higher and your heart is under extra stress, so caffeine in these levels are a no-no. Don't take it.
User avatar #29172 to #29170 - insertclevernames (04/10/2015) [-]
thanks man, i wont take any. are there substances i should take? (i.e. creatine, muscle milk, etc.)
User avatar #29173 to #29172 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
Maybe just take some muscle milk or protein powders to keep your protein consumption higher, and do some strength involved stuff so that you'll preserve muscle mass. Otherwise diet and some light exercise should be plenty right now for you to lose weight.
User avatar #29166 to #29162 - insertclevernames (04/10/2015) [-]
well i mean im not HUGE. but im def fat. im 6'3" 332 lbs (this sparked my wakeup call). and from what ive read theyre good if you use them with a good diet and a workout plan. and i mean the pills you get from any local GNC
User avatar #29169 to #29166 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
These pills usually only try to increase your metabolism a little, resulting in some weight loss. If you combine it with a diet and exercise your need for such a pill is nullified. If you want to be lazy, eat better and take the pill. If you want to see real, consistent results, eat better and exercise. You can take the pill too, but you may be wasting your money.
User avatar #29163 to #29162 - teoberry (04/10/2015) [-]
what pill? i wanna read about it
User avatar #29165 to #29163 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
DNP, essentially it takes your body fat and converts it to heat. And unlike most drugs, it only increases in effectiveness as you take it, so it works at a faster and faster rate, shedding pure fat at an abysmal rate.

Problem is, that heats gotta go somewhere, so you'll have a fever that will increase with each day that you take it. And after 6-8 days you will be under so much heat that you'll die of your organs cooking themselves. Although you can go from 20% body fat to single digits in that time period. Risk isn't worth the reward in my opinion.
User avatar #29167 to #29165 - teoberry (04/10/2015) [-]
oh fuck, definitely not. absolutely stupid for some people to be doing this. unless you're morbidely obese and are facing health problems anyways, i don't see the need. cut your calories and eat clean and you can have a 'beach bod''
User avatar #29171 to #29167 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
Plus the long term effects are unknown, heating up your body like that has to have some long term issues after a while. I wouldn't take it.

Using the stage method, I've done 6 singles with 305 on deadlift, then 2 sets of 3 with 275. Hasn't been too hard, but I'm excited to see how I'll progress on this particular setup.
User avatar #29174 to #29160 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
Also keeping track of total amount of pounds lifted during my workouts. Today's workout I lifted 16,420 total pounds, so next time I'll try to improve upon that number. Looked back at a couple other back days, and I had over 22,000 in one workout, so I'll work my way up to that for a while as well.

#29204 to #29145 - swiggityswooty (04/11/2015) [-]
when it heals work with a few low squats and some lower leg training, for knee stabilization to keep it from persisting in the future, for right now bengay and a few upper body days cant hurt

What are good songs to listen to while being at the gym/lifting? I listen to old rock mostly (Fleetwood Mac) but not metal and stuff. Thanks in advance
#29149 to #29144 - baglesbites (04/09/2015) [-]
Whatever gets you in the mood to move some weights. I personally listen to metal bands like killswitch engage and parkway drive during heavy lifts but like other rock like rise against for cardio or long sets with moderate weight.
User avatar #29155 to #29149 - marinepenguin (04/10/2015) [-]
Killswitch engage is always a classic. Also Korn and disturbed never fail me.

You seem not nearly that heavy, so you probably have a decent amount of muscle mass. Just cut down, then lean bulk as best as you can.

User avatar #29142 to #29139 - studbeefpile (04/09/2015) [-]
It's extremely difficult and somewhat complicated to lose weight and gain muscle at the same time. Safe bet is to cut first, then go into a lean mass building phase.
User avatar #29143 to #29142 - lazaman (04/09/2015) [-]

hey guys! not really sure how to word this but long story short i need help. yesterday i went to the doctor and saw my weight and instantly felt like a complete pile of shit. Im 18 years old, 6 foot 3 inches tall, and 332lbs. my senior prom is in a month and id like to look nice for it. since yesterday ive already got myself a gym membership and my plans so far are

mon-sun: run on treadmill for 45 mins from 6am-6:45am
mon-wed-fri-sat: lift weights from 2-2:45pm (in other words before and after school)

what i need help on is what type of lifting workouts should i do? i used to play football (american) so im pretty used to most things in the gym. if somebody could possibly take the time and draw me up a schedule to follow id be very thankful. any advice is very appreciated.
User avatar #29191 to #29128 - pwnagraphy (04/10/2015) [-]
Eat correctly. Weight loss starts in the kitchen, not the gym

Too much running, your body would rather put out muscle than energy. You're losing gains

Lift more, run less. You push out fat to make room for muscle

You're gonna be inclined to only bench press. Don't

Do squats and deadlift even though they fucking suck

Do core work, maybe get a trainer

Do leg press and hack squat. Throw in some pause sets every other day or so

Do pushups and situps every morning. I start with 15 pushups in the morning, 20 situps downstairs because dog is motivation, then do some shoulder touches basically get into pushup position, spread your legs like a whore, and touch your opposite hand to your shoulder on each side, like right hand left shoulder, left hand right shoulder. Do 20 of these, meaning 10 each side

So help me god if you fucking skip leg day I will find you and rip your asshole to shreds

Don't be the asshole who takes selfies

Don't be the asshole who sits in between sets

Don't be the asshole with gloves who does a set ever 40 minutes incorrectly on light weight and fucks around on his phone the whole time

Most important one: Have fun

He can drop more than 10 id reckon at 332, if he hardcore cut sugars and shit food and exercised.

Losing weight more rapidly is usually a bad idea but maybe op can try keto if he has the discipline for it.

I didn't go to the gym yesterday because my phone was dead so i couldn't listen to my rock playlist.

I went there today and realized that they were playing Motley Crue and Guns 'n' Roses on the gym radio
#29141 to #29119 - dehumanizer (04/09/2015) [-]
yes i know how that feels

my yesterday workout was ruined by my battery dying midway causing me to underperform and leave having only completed 3/4 of my quota

they were playing some shitty pop music like rihana taytay kek that guy who lifts for her on /fit/ is full of shit and some awful reddit tier balkan rap

I have decided to start.
Fuck it, why not.
I am 275Lb 6'4" tall
hardy do any physical effory. but i can maintain this.
last night i did 30 Flat backed situps and 600 half assed crunches(horrid technique)
A few pumps of some 10lb weights.
ill upload daily, because i feel i need to old myself accountable to someone to make sure i dont stop.
User avatar #29146 to #29114 - raskonock (04/09/2015) [-]
eat less
drink (a lot) more water
work out a little bit (I'm talking 20 minute light stroll. Nothing hard at all.)

That's all. The pounds will fall off. Then start a build phase if you want muscle.
User avatar #29122 to #29114 - lordketchup (04/09/2015) [-]
you're not gonna change shit with those daily crunches

if you want to lose weight and fat, do cardio and most importantly of all: !!eat less!!! hell you don't even have to workout, just eat less calories then your body uses and you will lose weight

iifym.com/tdee-calculator/
calculate your tdee and eat 500 less calories than it says
User avatar #29126 to #29122 - ghirahn ONLINE (04/09/2015) [-]
well the funny thing is i have kept this weight for 3 years eating healthy but a lot of it, so yeah i am planning on changing my amount of consumption but also engaging in actual physical activity.

Quite coincidental actually, I'd been keeping a log for the last 4 months or so and was on the brink of giving it up (due to pure laziness) but this should keep me using it.

Usually I'm just so beat from a workout that setting up my PC to type a journal of why I'm so beat is too much effort.

User avatar #29100 to #29089 - fuzzybutt ONLINE (04/09/2015) [-]
Define "Get in shape".

Do you have specific goals? Weight loss, muscle gain, cardiovascular health.

Getting in shape means something different to everyone, once you know what you want to achieve we can guide you a lot better
User avatar #29101 to #29100 - brackgrapple (04/09/2015) [-]
Lose some weight some muscle gain I don't want to be huge but I sat in a chair and didn't move for a whole year so im disgustingly weak
User avatar #29112 to #29101 - fuzzybutt ONLINE (04/09/2015) [-]
I know that feeling, I was agoraphobic for 5 years and in that time my muscle mass deteriorated massively.

Depending on how big you wanna get, you might not wanna lose TOO much weight since usually having a bit of mass beforehand makes the process a little smoother and faster.

Is your pull up bar adjustable? If so, you can do some Horizontal Rows to complement your pullups, there are a few variations of them that are more difficult depending on your current strength so you can tailor them to your needs.

Same with pullups, a few people who naturally have quite a bit of mass struggle doing "normal" pullups at first.

Unless you're on a tight budget I'd invest in a barbell, you can do a LOT of lifting variations with a barbell to target loads of muscle groups, don't wanna end up just working your biceps and looking too out of proportion.

Oh and don't forget leg day.
User avatar #29113 to #29112 - brackgrapple (04/09/2015) [-]
Never forget leg day, and its got different places I can pull up on it its one of those latch on the door pull ups
#29115 to #29113 - fuzzybutt ONLINE (04/09/2015) [-]
Ah right, that should be good enough then. For Rows you wanna get it somewhere around hip height and from the position the guy in the picture is in, pull inwards til your chest reaches the bar.

If it's too difficult with straight legs at first, try it with bent legs with your feet back on the floor. There's a very similar exercise you can do with a barbell too, I forget the name though since I do more bodyweight than free weights.

User avatar #29116 to #29115 - brackgrapple (04/09/2015) [-]
Oh boy im going to have to figure out how to mount the pull up bar on something, looks hard to do but ill give it a shot
