When i was in middle school, i was a short, fat kid. So i decided to lose a lot of weight. I ate only about twice a day and rode my bike constantly. And it worked. But i still wasn't happy.

I'm now i'm in my junior year. I'm 5'6" and weigh 114 pounds. My family and friends say i'm skinny but i still try to lose weight. I can see some muscle, but i'm not that strong. I can only bench about 40 pounds. i still try to lose weight because i still have a lot of fat in my gut and im embarrassed to never wear a shirt. Whenever i try to lose wight i'm so hungry i eat like shit for the rest of the day. someone please give me advice

You might still be fat, might also be water weight, who knows.

But a fact of life is you can only bench 40lbs and at that point it doesn't matter if you're fat or not because you're a dyel.

Eat more, pick up some weights, research how to do everything right, and do that for a couple years. I mean fuck it you prob already have body dysmorphia you might as well get into weight lifting.

You're skinnyfat. The best way to stop being skinnyfat is to build muscle mass, trying to diet down only ends up hurting you more and makes you even more skinnyfat due to metabolic fatigue and dysfunction.

Put on like 30-40 pounds of decent muscle mass.

I've got work in the morning so I'm trying to get to bed.

But basically tldr version. Eat more food than normal, try to aim for 3000 calories if you can. Try to eat healthy foods, but as long as you aren't eating chocolate and drinking soda every day you'll be okay. High protein.

Join a gym, find a gym, get a hold of weights somehow and start researching routines online that revolve around multi-joint lifts like bench, squat, deadlifts, rows, etc. Learn proper form and slowly increase weight as you get more comfortable.

does any of you have any experience with tendonitis (tendon inflammation), how to prevent it, recover fast?

I am having tendonitis in the shoulder quite often (every 2-3 months). And it's really anoying because usually it takes from one to two weeks to recover. For prevention i do shoulder stabilization with elastic. When injured, ice, rest and antiinflamatory pills.

the bad thing is that it always stops my progress and puts me 2-3 weeks behind.

So any thoughts, experiences?
#48167 to #48161 - marinepenguin

What kind of movements are you doing to cause it? Since it's your shoulder joint, I would assume you've developed imbalances and impingments from improperly training your shoulders.

While recovering I would recommend band work, and doing lots of rear shoulder work like band pullaparts, rear delt fly's, face pulls, etc.

You could also start doing more shoulder friendly pressing movements like landmine presses, push presses, etc.

thanks for the advice I haven't heard about landmine press before. Going to try it from now on.

I think i usually get it while doing handstand training. though it does happen with other movements. And mostly it's located on the front part of the deltoid muscle (closest to the chest) where most of the arm muscles connect.

Thanks for the help

Sounds more like a muscle imbalance. Just throw in a lot more rear shoulder work and it should get better. It's common.

Went shopping for some more athletic gear recently because its pretty much the style now anyways so fuckin why not.

Picked out some sexy ass joggers that show off my badonk, also picked up some sleeveless shit cuz why not.

Always have a problem with shirts though that nothing fits my arms/chest/shoulders/lats but also fits my waist.

Looking around find this maroon sleeveless tank diego-T lookin thing, don't even look at the size and try it on. Fuckin love it, its tight on my waist and fits my chest but hugs my lats where is this shirt all my life. I flex around a bit in it, take it off, read the tag.

Its a small.
A women's small.
A women's small sports gear T.
gana fucking kms the fact that I can even fit in a womens small.


tl;dr
Tfw you shop around and that perfect shirt is a women's small

Real talk though, you gotta go for those skinny-boy brands. Rock and Republic in particular makes good quality, well styled clothes, and typically their shirts are created with a v-taper.

I can rdl 315 for reps though, just cuz bad knees don't mean bad glutes. Plus you know your boy likes them ATG squats, comp squats just make me feel like I'm cheating.

Some people can squat more by using the stretch reflex and "bounce" out of the hole anyway. I had my strongest squats ever by taking it slow until I hit the hole, then speeding up until I hit the bottom.

I either have the choice of wearing mediums that hug my waist but are like spandex on my upper body, or wearing L-2XL depending on the brand, under armor/Nike usually runs small and 2XL fits well that are just snug enough on my upper torso but huge on my waist.

I just usually go with big shirts, because people will assume I'm bear mode and then they'll be pleasantly surprised at a well developed core.

Super tight shirts give you that metrosexual look and I'm not into that.

tbh I'm a massive slut, I can rest assured in myself that no matter the girl I've probably had more sex than her. So don't really matter to me who she fucked, I'm pretty confident that I'm 3 times better then every guy she has been with combined.

You treat a girl like a girl when she is used to getting whatever she wants and you pretty much instantly win. confidence even when false is pretty much GG with girls.

I'm more of a relationship guy. Last one was three years, but she was a bit of a whore before we dated and she taught me well.

I just make them laugh and that's all I really have to do honestly. Confidence is never an issue. Plus being a cop means being used to being in uncomfortable social situations.

Lads, this might be where I leave you all

As some of you know I had an incident at work a few weeks ago that put me in the ER. I won't go into detail but it's pretty bad. Doctors told me I can't push myself too hard anymore or I could suffer a brain hemorrhage. I figured "Well, I guess that's the end of my strongman/powerlifting career. I just can't do Deadlifts or 1rms anymore, it could be worse" Then today at work I was asked to make some Divot fill. This calls for 3 bags of the mix and 2 big buckets of sand. So I loaded the bags into the cart, boss drove them up, and I got the sand. The buckets when full couldn't have been any more than 70 or 80lbs each, and the shop was about 50 feet away, so I decided to pick them up by the handles and walk them over. Picking them up gave me a weird feeling, and 10 steps in I was feeling cold, colors were switching all wrong, spots were appearing in my eyes if I could even keep them open for a second or two, and my entire skull felt like it had an incredibly bad case of pins and needles. Immediately I dropped them and started coughing like I'd smoked ten packs a day for the past 40 years while questioning if I had just died and was looking through just my soul.

This concerns me because not only was it complete bitch weight for a farmers carry to start, but I was doing this easily with 200's barely a month ago. I am capable of far less than half the strength I was a month ago out of fear of death. I fear for what my bench has become, or my squat, or what I am even capable of doing without having a seizure. I am terrified for what this means for my future if I can barely lift anything ever again, if I can't even push a fucking lawnmower around for a buck let alone haul a wheelbarrow. What would I do if I or someone I know was stuck under something heavy they couldn't move? Would I die trying to help them? Would I even be able to move out on my own? I'm made only for manual labor as I am not a smart man, and I can no longer do much manual labor.

It's been a good run lads, but there's an excellent chance I will die trying to move something soon, and quite frankly if the that saved me in life is going to be taken from me, then perhaps it's for the best if that happens. I'll live on here, :')ing and calling you all small on a regular basis as usual, but my days of PRs and Sumo memes have come to a very early end. It's been a pleasure shitposting with you, gentlemen

Hopefully it's actually something that's fixable through weight loss or a change of diet or even medication. It almost sounds like you also have super high blood pressure.

I definitely wouldn't give up on fitness entirely, I'd just focus on what you CAN do and get good at it, instead of focusing on what you've lost.

My diet has been very clean for the past few years. Rarely I is it I have something bad like when I activate my calceits

Weight is at an all time low of 247 right now, was 254 at the hospital. Before I started working I was down to 266 on my cut, working in the sun all day in dress clothes has been good for weight loss

At the end of the hospital visit my blood pressure was in perfect ranges according to the doctor They did it in the ambulance and when I first got there as well, both were higher than normal because I was fucking panicking from coughing and vomiting a total of 2.4 pints of blood onto the golf course and the bathroom sink followed by being told I passed out for a bit

The doctor said I had some weak blood vessel walls in my nose, stomach and chest. The nose burst and led to a chain reaction which caused the coughing/vomitting yes it was different blood, my head was tilted down and they were different shades , and to top it all off, my asthma came out of remission meaning I can barely breath most of the time and am now prone to random fits of suffocation

What I CAN do is probably pushups, MAYBE situps, but my days of enjoying lifting are done
