I just wanted to say thanks to all of you. This board has been instrumental in getting me where I want to be.

I'm not there yet, but I'm closer. Thanks guys.

Kind of. I don't ask a lot of questions, and I try not to give too much advice since I'm new. I do post from time to time, though. Just not as much as others, like studbeefpile or marinepenguin.

Anyone else here have a hard time sticking to a certain lifting schedule/routine week after week, month after month? Although the gains have continued over time, I feel like I've been seriously reducing my lifting potential by continuing to switch my routine after like 3 or 4 weeks. Opinions?

Also, what does everyone's routine currently look like/what's you favorite? I'm trying to find something that I can follow for at least 2 month (or longer if I choose to continue gaining weight before cutting some).
User avatar #26467 to #26455 - leal (02/20/2015) [-]
As long as you're making gains you should STTP
User avatar #26459 to #26455 - Draigor (02/19/2015) [-]
If you're on a program that is giving you gains, how can you not stick to it? You are literally getting stronger. If your mindset is to work and get strong, rather than have "fun", you wont give a shit about what program you're on.
User avatar #26461 to #26459 - nwbballplayer (02/19/2015) [-]
I get how stupid it sounds. The basic exercises have stayed mainly the same (Compounds, accessories, etc), but the scheduling/rep ranges/periodization have been the aspects that have changed. The mentality and focus has stayed the same too. For some reason, I've had the idiotic idea in my head that nothing is ever as good as the next thing, but I'm working to change that.

Discipline is Greater than Motivation

I hear a lot of people talking about gym 'motivation' and not 'feeling' like working out, or whatever. The truth is 'motivation' is bull shit.

Like the man said, do some free weights. Bicep curls, tricep curls/extensions, lateral raise, pec flys, chest press, overhead press, rows, lateral pulldown (on a pulley). It's important that you start on weights you can handle so that you start developing a good muscle base and so you can increase naturally.
If you want to clean up your diet I'd start by using something like the myfitnesspal app is free for a week to give you a breakdown on how much carbs, protein, fat and calories you take in. Remember that you might not see any visual/performance improvement for at least the first six weeks so don't expect to come out three weeks later looking like Arnie.
User avatar #26443 to #26439 - kurusudarling ONLINE (02/19/2015) [-]
no i know its a process but thanks ill look into the app and try out those exercises, ive been going to the gym for a week, squats on the rack laterall pulldowns, bicep/tricep curls and situps. feelsing sore but im determined, thanks for the help
User avatar #26435 to #26434 - advice ONLINE (02/19/2015) [-]
if you want real gains, eat more protein/shakes and do some free-weight reps

Is there a name for the people who put on the weight on the bench or the squat rack, do one set and then leave to do anything else for 20-30 min, then get mad if you try to use the equipment?

I usually do all my sets and then move on to the next thing.

If I can't do pushups now, and do certain exercises to prepare me for them (statics, elevated pushups etc.) every other day (considering I'm 17 that's about as much as I need for any fatigue to heal), how long will it approximately take before I can do say at least 10 proper pushups?
#26425 to #26424 - baglesbites (02/19/2015) [-]
Pushups on stairs or your knees are probably your best bet. Do 3 sets of 8-12 reps (build up to this if you can't do them) on high incline like stairs. Then drop to your knees and do a set to failure like that. Also do planks at the top of the pushup and on your forearms. Just aim to do better each time you do them. How fast your build up your strength depends on how hard your work, but it should be pretty fast

Out of interest can we get a little thread going with:

Height: 6ft 1inch
Weight: 75kg
Age: 20
Chest Press: 50kg (looking for 55 maybe 60 this week)
Leg Press: 160kg
Deadlift: 90kg (added to routine 2 weeks ago)
Squat: 70kg (added to routine 2 weeks ago)

Each of these I do 3 sets of 8-12 reps.

I understand the exercises are going to vary with the machines etc at every gym but just as a generalisation I'm interested to see how FJ are and where I fit in

Fat slob here going to the gym for the first time tomorrow. Can I get tips? Like what is some gym etiquette I should know? Bring a towel to wipe off what I use after right? What should be my first workout routine? Just some stretching and cardio? I'm going to bed now. I'll check my replies in the morning.
User avatar #26414 to #26390 - crampers (02/18/2015) [-]
i weighed around 100kg when started fitness down at around 70 kgs now - You will feel so much better when you exercise regularly . Wipe off equipment (often there's sanitizer for this), don't hog equipment while doing nothing for long periods of times, ofc. you need to take breaks but some take a 20 minute break on the equipment...

Have fun, also in the start here i would recommend grouping up with another guy who trains because then you will feel obliged too go train with them - remember no skipping unless you're sick or injured
User avatar #26394 to #26390 - methylgroup (02/18/2015) [-]
Also, good luck, man. You're making the right choice.
User avatar #26391 to #26390 - methylgroup (02/18/2015) [-]
Rerack your weights when you finish with them.

If you're really sweating, then yeah, be polite and wipe down the machine/station.

Don't try to do everything in one day. If this is your first time ever going, don't overexert yourself on day 1, but push yourself a little bit every day.

Try to have fun with it. It's meant to be enjoyed.
User avatar #26401 to #26391 - vvriotvv (02/18/2015) [-]
I second what this man said.

Plus; stick it out. You may well hate it at first but trust me when I say, once you start seeing those results you will start to really enjoy it.

Also, don't be intimidated. This is one of the biggest things I see in new people. They don't want to try exercises through fears of other people judging them.

Everyone is in there for their own reason at the end of the day and you're your own competition, not anyone elses.

Something else. If you can, get a gym buddy, a lot of what I find boring about gym at times is when I have no one to talk to between sets. Don't go over the top though, it's gym time not social time haha.
User avatar #26386 - thunderquill (02/18/2015) [-]
Any of yall that use protein powder, how much do you think I should get and should I take it before and after or just after or just before. (5' 10" 245 lbs lots of cardio and lifting for an hour straight every day)

I currently just fill up to about 20 ounces or so of whole milk, and then 2 scoops of protein powder that has 25g per scoop. I'll drink half before and the other half after. The label explains that it has uses for both before and after.
#26389 to #26386 - baglesbites (02/18/2015) [-]
Protein powder is just food. They may say that whey is fast acting and casein is slow acting but its all the same if you're eating throughout the day. Just drink a shake whenever you want to or when its most convenient.
User avatar #26387 to #26386 - Draigor (02/18/2015) [-]
2-3 scoops per day is usually enough to add to your existing protein intake
User avatar #26388 to #26387 - thunderquill (02/18/2015) [-]
That's what I was thinking, I did forget to mention I already get probably around 20g of protein from my lunches (Usually incorporate some steak, chicken breast, or tuna) and home made "protein bars". (I just mixed together some peanut butter, oats, whole milk, a little dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa, and a banana.) I would estimate probably around 10g give or take.

Finally got a 205 5RM on bench. My bench has gone up really quick since I started implementing those pause rep benches with a bent bar and no leg drive, focusing on expressiveness. Let's see if I can get up to repping 215 for 5 in the next couple weeks or months.

I very clearly remember the days of having a 125 pound bench. You'll get there. Consistency and time will get you there eventually.
User avatar #26364 to #26362 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/18/2015) [-]
It's been what? 6-8 months? That's not terrible at all. Just improve in some way every workout and you can't go wrong.
User avatar #26365 to #26364 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/18/2015) [-]
I guess. Even though I've felt like I've been stepping backwards and my strength has actually decreased since a month ago.
User avatar #26367 to #26365 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/18/2015) [-]
Well than its time to take a step back and look at what you're doing. Are you eating enough to fuel your body? Is your program doing a good enough job of allowing progress? Do you have too much volume and you are wearing yourself out? Or do you have too little volume and aren't giving your body enough stress to build off of? Do you get enough rest for your body to recover? Stuff like that.
User avatar #26368 to #26367 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/18/2015) [-]
Took a 1.5-2 week break because of exams and then oral surgery while eating unhealthy. Also realized I had form troubles on a couple of movements, was pushing too much weight on some movements as well as I've added a couple different movements lately. I've made more changes this past week or so then the past 3 months.
User avatar #26369 to #26368 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/18/2015) [-]
Then all that is more then likely the cause. When you switch things up you usually have a little dip in weight before you start moving up again.
User avatar #26370 to #26369 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/18/2015) [-]
I don't even care about my strength, if my bench went and stayed at 150 but I was jacked I'd be happy as fuck. Sadly that's not how it goes so I gotta bring my strength up before I can actually cut. Probably will take 2 years.
User avatar #26371 to #26370 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/18/2015) [-]
Then just focus on higher than 5 reps. Lots of sets, lots of reps. You're at the point now where you could probably add more volume. I don't have that great of numbers, but I'm fairly decent sized because I do tons of volume. 5 sets of 15 and 4 sets of 12 is usual to me. But I also do 3 sets of 5 to keep at least decent strength gains.
User avatar #26373 to #26371 - lulzformalaysiaair (02/18/2015) [-]
I do 10 reps for all my movements now except bench, OHP, and bent over rows. My ego doesn't make me go higher, I don't even understand why. Should I go for higher reps if my goal is purely bodybuilding? Thing is though I want a bigger body, like broader shoulders, traps, arms and chest. Not just a decrease in fat, that's only half of it.
User avatar #26374 to #26373 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/18/2015) [-]
Higher reps builds more muscle and can shed fat if you have a high amount of muscle already. But for building muscle, the 8-12 rep range is king. So if your goal is bodybuilding over strength, focus more on higher reps.

But even for bench, OHP and deadlifts?
User avatar #26384 to #26381 - marinepenguin ONLINE (02/18/2015) [-]
I do 4 sets of 10 on bench and OHP.

Damn, I guess it's high fucking time I switch all movements to 8 reps or higher. I'm gonna start doing 10 for bench and OHP too. Thanks4the help.

Yes, and many a big back has been built without deadlifts. Rows and pull ups can build just as big of a back and are more easily performed in larger volumes.

Strength helps to build muscle, but building muscle allows higher capacities for strength.

Hey guys, I'm a 75kg male with about 20% body fat% and was hoping to embark on a cut. I'm currently consistently benching 60kg for 10 reps and deadlifting 110kg.

Is it worth embarking on a cut, (incorporating LISS and HIIT into my seasons and starting a generally healthy diet) at this level? Or should I aim to get my body fay within 15-17% to continue building muscle and get definition later?

So I probably got jumper's knees
Should I just not squat/deadlift at all for a while?
User avatar #26343 to #26342 - studbeefpile (02/17/2015) [-]
I would do very light weight squats, and focus on stretching in the bottom to rehabilitate.
User avatar #26345 to #26343 - europe (02/17/2015) [-]
Also what about deadlifting?
User avatar #26344 to #26343 - europe (02/17/2015) [-]
Will do
Same number of reps and sets? I usually do 5x5
Can I expect a major loss in physical strength?

I wouldn't even worry about programming it. I would just do what felt good that day. This isn't going to really do anything for building strength, this is just to get your knees better.

Deadlifting (in my experience) doesn't put too much stress on your knees. If I were you I'd take a day and just slowly ramp up singles (in increments of 20lbs) and see how you feel when you get heavy. If you don't feel any pain, then just keep deadlifting like you have before. If you do, back off the weight a lot, and take advantage of this time to work on perfecting your form.

Tendons already feel much less irritated than yesterday
Is it safe to assume that it will be over in about two weeks?
User avatar #26399 to #26395 - studbeefpile (02/18/2015) [-]
Yes, especially if you do the rehabilitation work I recommended.
User avatar #26400 to #26399 - europe (02/18/2015) [-]
Awesome
I've been stretching and been trying to be as careful as possible when cycling

I need help funnyjunk. 5 weeks ago, I decided that I am too fat and that I needed to make a change. I've been dieting for 5 weeks on a diet that includes eating a very low amount of carbs and have been going to the gym 3 days a week. I usually ride on a bike for 30 minutes at medium intensity and then I do about 15 sets of lifting alternating between arms,back,shoulders,chest, and legs every time I go. I noticed that I'm losing a very low amount of weight, around 10 pounds in 5 weeks. Is this typical? Or is there something wrong with me?

Thats great progress. Losing weight in a healthy fashion doesn't happen over night, it takes months.

It's a slow process. Took me 2.5 months to lose 10 pounds doing similar routines as yourself.

doesn't seem like there isn't anything wrong. perhaps increase the amount of time you do cardio. I know everyone hates it but either going on the tread or using the walking machine plus the bike will help out. also when lifting, try to concentrate more one certain parts of the body. ex. today I did about an hour of cardio and two more hours of doing my chest and triceps, then tomorrow I will do another hour of cardio and two hours of back and biceps. Wednesday I will do about thirty min of cardio and 1-2 hours of legs. Then finally another hour on cardio and begin abs with shoulder lifting for 2 hours. That's my routine for the past 2 months and my friends started to notice my slimming down

It's not all about the carbs, it's about the calories too.
Count yo calories bruh.
User avatar #26335 to #26334 - canyou (02/17/2015) [-]
That's about how much I lost when I started low carb. I need to start again. I wanna lose 10 more by summer
