What the dildo is a wall squat?
User avatar #30807 - marinepenguin (05/09/2015) [-]

Self corrective squat movement. Helps build a good movement pattern and helps you learn how to stay upright, keep your knees above your heels, push through your heels and sit back. It's awesome.

ohhh, I do know what those are, I just didn't know they were called that.

Is there a reason for such high reps on your squat?
User avatar #30787 - marinepenguin (05/08/2015) [-]
I like high rep squats, plus I only go heavy on my squat emphasis days.

I used to do 3x5 or 4x5 then i switch to 3x8 with lower weight I like it more

High rep squats are also mentally challenging.

I always seem to have more left in the tank when I do higher reps. like ill do 8 and be like well fuck i got more in me and do another 4

idk it's a dumb question in that i can easily find an answer, but i'll ask anyways. do macros really, really matter? sure, if i eat no protein i'm not gonna see many gains, but does the balance and shit really matter? being 16 it's hard to be able to get and prep the right food to balance macros so it's basically I'm just eating what I can trying to avoid junk. is that still good, or should i put a better effort into diet?

Do it, and please throw a mention my way.

I have two similar tales:
One being on the train. A bunch of teenage twats was cussing and swearing at a young, small, female conductor, going apeshit over how they didn't need tickets, that they were (and I shit you not, they said this literally) (minus translation from semi-Dutch to English) too swaggy to need tickets. Me and my friend came back from swimming in Bruges, and heard the argument. Then one of the taller kids started pushing her, hard, and he and I got up immediately and went towards them. We didn't do anything. We just stood behind the conductor, glaring fairly menacingly at them. I'm only a 5'11, my friend being a 6'. But the both of us are physically active, have broad shoulders, and we both have been in a few fights we didn't want to be in, and have gotten rather adept at it. You could see them shrinking back. The conductor smiled at us, asked us to stay here for a bit, then went to get Securail (rail service security). They came, forced them to pay for their tickets, called the cops (physical aggression), did the entire 'gonnacallyourparentsandyou'refucked' dialogue, and booted them out at the next station, where the police was waiting for them. Had a lovely chat with the conductor and the chill Securail guys afterwards.

Second story, with same friend, and few Arabic-immigrant twat teens again (who were a lot more fit than the swaggy white ones), in a pool. They were on top of a large floating thingy (no clue what it's called. Kinda like a bouncy castle), making life hell for any small kid for who the thing was intended to. So, young female lifeguard (who was hired for the summer) whistles at them (with a whistle, the warning kind), and tells them to get off. One of the guys swims to her, and I can hear the obscenities flying. In short, how dare a woman tell them what to do. Somehow applying one concept of their religion, taking it to the extreme, and ignoring everything else. So, he pulled her in and tried to drown her, without warning, turning incredibly aggressive. My friend and I were just walking out when we saw her get pulled into the water. I reacted first and decided to hop on the guy's head, feet first. Then his three friends half ran half swam up to me, only to be tackled by my friend, who, despite being weaker, is way more massive than I'll ever be, and just crashed into the bunch. We're experienced with fighting in the water, we love wrestling each other. We can hold our breaths for a minute and a half easily, even when choked, and don't frighten easily because of that. The guy I jumped on was pretty much knocked out cold, or close to it (after all, he just got hit by 78kg of pain, on the head), my friend decided to choke one guy, under the water, while the other two were trying to drown him at the same time. The lifeguard got out in the meantime, called for help, while I wrapped myself around the body of one of the two, and pulled him down, while biting him in the shoulder (somehow they forgot about me being there).
Boy, did that guy panic. I love the memory of him trying to scream and get me off him (try doing that when I'm hanging onto your back and you can't get a proper grip on me), while I just kept biting him.

The other guy tried hitting us, which is fairly ineffective under water, and started panicking as well by that point, as the guy my friend was holding was obviously running out of breath. He decided to make a run for it, which of course failed as other lifeguards had come running in and caught him. Then they hopped in, and tapped both me and my friend on the back to let us know they were there. We're well known there, and they knew we wouldn't start shit. They got plucked out, kept under watch by half a dozen life guards, and were handed over to the cops in their shorts. One guy had a concussion, another was half drowned, and the third guy had a massive bite mark in his shoulder.

Lols were had afterwards.

Tl, dr: Storytime Fj.

Is fighting really that common?
I am a 6ft2, wide gorrila chest and relatively musclegut, right arm tattooed and a goatee,

and the closest thing i got to fighing since finishing elementary was me throwing someguy out of a bakery harassing the shop owner, wich is a sweet old lady as his group of friends watched, while i did get threats the following day that they will gang up on me, it never really happened.

#125 - insanefreak (05/07/2015) [-]
It's not that common. It generally is just some pushing and pulling, but for some reason people who are from a certain ethnicity (brownish, I don't know who, and it's a minority. I've got too many friends among them to generalize, but it's a type of behaviour I haven't found with others so far), tend to get very aggressive, very quickly, for seemingly no reason. My dad had to save me once in the pool because they tried to drown me, after they hit me in the slide as they didn't wait for the light to turn green (I was five or so at the time). Then he got surrounded by adults as he pulled me out of harm's way.

The thing is that I generally get involved when it's obvious they're bullying someone weaker, and some people hate getting opposed. Also, I don't look that intimidating on my own. When you're with two, and especially considering how broad my friend is, it's different, but on my own, I have gotten into fights due to interfering more frequently.

I'm a guy who once got dunked headfirst into a toilet when I was in primary school. I got bullied often enough for being younger (due to me skipping a grade, then being forced to change schools). Since then I could never stand bullying or anything of the sort.

You get into funny situations at times. Once I forced a kid to go with me to the cops to report him being beaten up at the station. Then they contacted his parents, and by the time his mum got there, I got the school's number and the names of the people bullying him. Cops could only report the case and contact the school, I kept making a fuzz till I got the names of their parents, or traced them otherwise, and contacted them.

My father raised me to be good, and that you can change the world by changing yourself for the better, and doing especially that what you don't dare to do. And that's what I'm trying to do. He's not an easy person to try to live up to, but it keeps me alive and going through a lot of shit.
User avatar #136 - amonlavtar (05/07/2015) [-]
I was bullied too, when i was younger i was a fatty fatty, so i was
picked on, verbal harassment mostly.

but what i did learn from elementary is that 90% of time a razor-sharp tounge and a bit of reputation can prevent anyone picking on you.

But it allso made me stick for myself and the people i am good friends with.
Took a full hook to the jaw for my brother
User avatar #101 - marinepenguin (05/07/2015) [-]
I worked as a lifeguard for a few summer's and had to deal with assholes as well with a female majority staff. I'm not a big guy naturally, two years ago I was 145 pounds and basically put on 60 pounds of muscle because I decided I didn't want to be the little guy anymore. I know what its like to be picked on, so being fairly intimidating and knowing how to fight is satisfying when you can defend someone.

I might try to put together a comp like these then, since people seem interested. Probably won't be til this weekend though.

I sort of had your situation when I was working at dominoes... I was basically the only inside staff other the the owner who only worked every other week. Most of the time the customers were fairly nice seeing as I usually worked the front. Usually as soon as I would work the oven customers would get rowdy cause of the almost all female staff. Most of the time I would just have to go to the front to grab some boxes and thing quieted down real fucking quick. The only downside with all this is that the cash registers were below the counter so I ended up hunched over for sometimes up to 6 hours at a time if it was busy enough...

That last part was more pointed towards people who may just be reading.

So shorthand version would be:
For strength and a little size, do High weight and 1-5 reps.
For size and decent strength, do lower weights and 6+ reps.
5 reps is usually considered the sweet spot between the two.

I catch your drift though.

User avatar #316 to #315 - marinepenguin (03/23/2015) [-]
It's just a ton of different factors really.

I'm leaving for basic training this summer, and I have no plans on marrying her. And once I get back I'll be moving closer to my future college and getting a job there, away from my hometown where she also lives, and I don't want to move in with her.

And on top of that, a girl I've known, liked, and cared for since I was a freshman in high school has recently become single and has shown a lot of interest in me.

And included in all that, hanging out with my gf, and doing really any activity with her feels like a huge chore and I never look forward to it. She's my first serious relationship, and she's convinced we're going to get married. In her eyes everything is perfect and nothing is wrong, so me breaking it off would utterly destroy her.

I already know what I want, and what I should do, but actually doing it is hard. Especially after yesterday was our two year anniversary.

User avatar #317 to #316 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
That is rough dude. Very rough indeed.

There are a couple things you have to consider.

1. Love is more choice, than emotion. Ask any married couple - there will be times when you don't 'feel' like loving your SO, but you do anyway, because you're committed to them.

So look at the facts of your overall relationship. Does she give you something valuable, and you're just overlooking it at the moment?

2. If she doesn't give you anything, and you really don't have any intention to marry her whatsoever, you absolutely need to cut the relationship off as soon as possible for her sake. If you don't plan on going anywhere, ultimately it's going to end up hurting her down the road faaaar more than if you just break up with her now.

Of course it'll be difficult, but there are good ways to do it. Take your time, and be careful with your wording. If she understands where you're coming from, then that's good, and perhaps you guys can still be decent friends. If she loses it, it's a good thing you got out anyway.

Ultimately this is in your hands, but the worst thing you could do is not do anything about the situation at all. The longer it goes on, the worse it'll be when it ends.
User avatar #319 to #317 - marinepenguin (03/23/2015) [-]
I love her in the idea that I really care for her and want the best for her, but I don't love her in the way that I'd spend my life with her.

She doesn't really give me anything, companionship sure, but I've gotten her a job, a car, got her to go to college, without me she'd be way worse off. So for that she really appreciates me. but I don't get anything from her that I couldn't get from any other girl while having more freedom for myself.

This other girl that just entered the picture only makes things worse. My parents and all our friends have constantly told me that they think both of us will end up together in the end, and when we're both at work we talk almost nonstop. And now that she left her extremely constricting boyfriend she's started flirting as well. Now I would never stoop so low as to make something of this while with my girlfriend, but the temptation is there and I don't think that's much better.

Like I said, I know what needs to be done, I just find it hard to actually do it, it's like a goddamn massive bandaid I don't want to pull off.
User avatar #321 to #319 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
You just gotta be strong and do it dude.

My advice would be to take a whole evening and just set aside time to talk about it. You don't wanna leave anything to question. The sooner the better, you know this.

Besides, if you don't act on this other chick fast, she might get taken by some other dude that's quicker to the draw.
User avatar #322 to #321 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
Yeah that's something I really fear. I have liked her for a long time, lot of regrets with that girl. This could be my last chance with her.

The opposite of expression is depression. If you don't express, you get depressed. Venting is necessary.

I often have to vent as well, and you know, there's someone that's always been there for me. Through thick and thin, hot and cold. Depressed. Happy. Sad. Excited. No matter what, they've always been there for me......

That person is Deadlift Day.
User avatar #326 to #325 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
For sure, lifting always helps when it comes to really everything. Angry? Squats. Sad? Chest. Teenage angst? Back day. The iron always listens to your problems.
User avatar #327 to #326 - studbeefpile (03/24/2015) [-]
Hahah, teenage angst.

"Nobody understands me, I'm gonna go into my gym and lift to Greenday!"

Is that your set though? For me Deadlifting will help with pretty much any emotion - although especially anger and sadness. Squats are good when I'm just amped up and wanna crush something, and bench is actually pretty chill for me. I find that I typically don't get super duper hyped for bench and that's fine. Bench is just an easy chill day for me.
User avatar #328 to #327 - marinepenguin (03/24/2015) [-]
Nah not really, I just picked random stuff.

I have a ton of volume and high rep work, so while I look forward to stuff like squats and power cleans, my workouts in general are brutal enough to where I'm too wiped to experience any sort of emotion for an hour or two.

But yeah, chest day is probably my least intense day as well.

So how much would you recommend me for calorie intake, so far I've been taking in around 3200. I wanna gain a lot of weight, but I don't wanna fat myself up. 5'11, 136 currently and I workout 6 times a week between 1:30-2hrs. I of course understand that if I actually want abs I would need to cut so I won't be seeing them for a while.
User avatar #295 to #294 - marinepenguin (01/28/2015) [-]
Have you been gaining weight recently at 3200 calories?
User avatar #296 to #295 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]
I honestly can't tell because I don't measure in equal intervals (before eating) but I've definitely been eating more then I used to and I can definitely continue. I'm sure I've gained at least 5 pounds.
User avatar #297 to #296 - marinepenguin (01/28/2015) [-]
In how long of a timeframe? If you are wanting to gain extremely lean muscle, you should expect maybe a pound or 2 a month. You can only build about .25 lbs of muscle a week at max. So if you were to gain a pound of fat for every pound of muscle, you'd be doing good.

But considering that you are 136 pounds. You may want to put on some mass in general. I'd say if you aren't gaining a ton of weight, up it to 3500 a day.

User avatar #280 to #279 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Really? What branch is he in?

I just recently joined the Air National Guard. My unit has a reputation for getting a lot of deployments, so chances are that I'll be in a bad situation at some in my 6 years.
User avatar #281 to #280 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
He was in the Marines. Served from 2004-2007ish. Fought in the harshest situations when **** really hit the fan in Fallujah. Also in Najaf and Baghdad. Got wounded when his hummvee was avoiding an IED. But he's doing well. No signs of PTSD, he's fully mobile and got out in one piece and maintains a great job. So we're all thankful he's doing well. I still remember flying down with my father to Parris Island when he graduated that summer. It gave me a deeper appreciation for our troops.
User avatar #282 to #281 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Well that's awesome. In the movie they are in Fallujah for quite some time. I'm glad to hear he got out in one piece physically and mentally. I haven't even gotten to basic yet, but in my student flight I've already gotten to appreciate the camaraderie and discipline.
User avatar #283 to #282 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
If only more people had that spirit. My brother's in the Navy in near the Florida border and he tells me that some people just don't give a rat's ass about following orders. Mostly urban youth, people who are overweight and cheat on the physicals and some sexual situations. Some with military wives some with women in service. It's soiling the morale. But I guess **** happens and the military will handle it.
User avatar #284 to #283 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah those people irritate the hell out of me. People are in the military either because they're patriotic or they just consider it a job. It should be more then that. I decided a long time ago that I was going to get involved in the military as some point, my father was in the navy as a search and rescue and I wanted to continue the military tradition. Unfortunately the National Guard is all I can do while in college. If a large scale war broke out I know that I'd try to join the TACPs and enlist full time.
User avatar #285 to #284 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Honestly, I considered enlisting but I was too far into college to do so. I would have done it not for myself, but for the love of my country and to rightfully earn that title of a Marine. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey, just 20 minutes away from Manhattan. A lot of people in my town went to work there and unfortunately we lost a good amount of people on 9/11. I still remember it like it was yesterday. My mom also knew people when they were kids who were taken on that day, I'm always meeting new people and eventually find out that they lost a parent, our area stopped holding ceremonies after the anniversary because it was too much for a lot of us. But I'd say 9/11 was a day that made me appreciate my family, my country and our men and women in uniform more than ever. If ever you head out to NYC I highly recommend you check out the memorial. I was just there this past summer and it was breathtaking. Got me choked up honestly.
User avatar #286 to #285 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
I'm in a small town in the Midwest so fortunately we didn't lose anyone around here. Being a small rural town with big guns and a rich history of veterans you can imagine how we all reacted after that day. We have a lot of Iraq veterans over here because of it. I was in first grade at the time, but I remember being dismissed from school and seeing everyone cry.

I'll make it a point to visit someday. I admit I don't feel like I'm doing as much as I can just being in the guard, I don't think I deserve the title of airman even. Only people who give their full time and enlist deserve that.
User avatar #287 to #286 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
I truly believe what you're doing counts. Every little contribution in the efforts of freedom matters no matter what. Your area sound so Americana with the veterans. I can't imagine what it must be like on Memorial Day and Independence Day.
User avatar #288 to #287 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Regardless I'll still give those enlisted men the respect they deserve.

And it's crazy. Barbeques, services, speeches, parades. Out of every graduating class (40-60 every year) a good 2-5 will be headed straight to basic for the air force or boot for other branches. I remember on veterans day programs when I was in grade school, our new gym that held 1100 people was standing room only. Standing ovations, 21 gun salutes and all. My father rarely went because he felt he didn't deserve the honor. He was in during the first gulf war and he knew guys that got killed, but he never fired a shot being just naval search and rescue.
User avatar #289 to #288 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]

I've always worked like a mix of powerlifting and bodybuilding. I always worked in the 5-8 rep range, so I gained strength and size at the same time.

Well if you're wanting to become a bodybuilder, I'd say you can begin a bodybuilding routine once you hit a 1.5x bodyweight bench, 2x Squat, at least a 2x deadlift, and a .75 overhead press. That's just my opinion though.

Upon further investigation, you were on the science board after I posted my link. So I'll assume you came from there.

I actually actually came from religion board, went to the science board after looking through your comments

Oh and the diseases and pain and evil and stuff.. too many "and" but whatever. If someone could change my view of this sure. But that's how I believe for the moment.
User avatar #235 to #234 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
I don't really agree with that. I completely accept that life has no real purpose beyond just pure reproduction of our species, and that we have no real meaning in the world, but yet I'm still fascinated by the idea of going to space and discovering all that we possibly can. There will always be people like me who are curious and hopeful for the future, regardless of the reasons that we exist. So while many people may find that the world is bleak and terrible, others may see just the opposite.

In the end I think our natural curiosity and basic instinct to survive will overcome any feelings of hopelessness or uselessness. Just look at so many people who have been in terrible and hopeless situations, instead of just dying, they were desperate to survive and lived one day at a time. That alone proves to me that we wouldn't kill ourselves off as a species just because "life is meaningless and it sucks to be alive". Humanity will endure for as long as we don't kill ourselves off or we aren't killed off.

Exactly. Although that's one interesting concept as to why we haven't found any intelligent life as of yet. That they kill themselves off before they can advance far enough to explore space.

In my opinion it isn't because there aren't any other species out there, it's either that

1) We simply haven't encountered any yet. The sheer distance between stars creates a barrier between us and other races.

2) We have actually been discovered by other species, but they just monitor our progress and don't attempt to interact with us physically for whatever reason.

3) We have been discovered by other species in the past, and perhaps they even met some of our ancestors (watered down version of the "ancient alien" theory), and that they monitor/ guide our species in an attempt to create another interstellar civilization

4) We are currently interacting with alien species, but our governments are hiding that fact from us from reasons that vary from "massive changes in basic human social structure" to "keeping panic at bay because we have no way of keeping these beings from killing us whenever" and everything in between.

Or even a multitude of other reasons. I think other alien species existing that are intelligent is not only likely, but inevitable. It may even be possible that once we reach the level of an interstellar civilization we could discover that there is in fact a whole society of different species existing in space, in some kind of "star wars" fashion.

Barbell Training Guide for Beginners

Barbell training is one of the best forms of exercise out there. It’ll make you big, strong, fast, explosive, and make you look pretty damn good. This comes at the cost of discipline in what you eat, what you do, and hard work at the gym. Barbell training almost always centers around big compound movements, with most emphasis usually placed on the 3 “big lifts” like the Squat, Bench, and Deadlift. Other notable movements include the pull up, overhead press, rows, weighted lunges and front squat, but most programs put a large amount of focus on the big 3.

Now if you don’t know how to bench, squat, deadlift, or really do any of the movements that I mentioned before (which most of you probably don’t), I would highly recommend that you find someone who does and have them teach you. Some of these lifts can be highly technical and take some technique to learn, and the better your form from the start, the better and more easily you will progress. If you can’t find someone to help you in person, look up how to videos on YouTube and try your best to replicate them. Spend a few weeks simply getting down the movement and teaching yourself proper form. Then we can really get to the fun par, adding weight.

Now as a beginner your body has a remarkable ability to recover from stress, this allows you to get stronger and better at moving more weight every single workout. This means that you should go up by 5 pounds on bench, and 10 pounds on squat and deadlifts, every single time you set foot in the gym at first. If you fail and you can’t get that weight that specific workout, keep the weight the same and try again the next workout, don’t go up in weight until you can finish the previous amount.
User avatar #225 to #220 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]

Now depending on your goals, your diet will vary extremely. Losing and gaining weight all depends on your caloric intake, if you eat more calories then your body needs to maintain itself you will gain weight, the opposite occurs if you eat fewer calories than your body needs.

Gaining weight
To gain weight all you need to do is find out how many calories your body needs to maintain itself, then eat 500-800 calories more, while eating close to your lean body mass weight in grams of protein (For instance, if you weigh 180lbs, but you're carrying 10-15lbs of fat, then you'll only need to eat about 150 grams of protein a day). Ideally, you'd eat mostly clean foods, but it isn't completely necessary. You'll just feel a little bit better. Clean foods are not processed, not fast food, not junk. If you have to wonder to yourself “is this good for me?" It probably isn’t. Although when it comes to gaining weight, you have a bit more leniency than if you were losing weight. You can eat some fast food every few days to help get in more calories and protein, you can eat some "bad" calorie dense foods on occasion for the same reason. Now note that I say on occasion, or every few days, I don’t mean that McDoubles should be your main source of calories every other day.

User avatar #224 to #221 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Now the reason that you only want to eat a certain amount of calories above maintenance level is becuase your body can only gain .25-.5 pounds of muscle mass per week at a maximum on average. Once your body's capacity to build muscle has been exceeded, you will start to pile on the fat. That being said, there are some people who are known as “hard gainers” these people have naturally super quick metabolisms and have a resistance to gaining mass even when eating at a caloric surplus, these people have also been known as ectomorphs traditionally. One way to get past this is to literally force your body to grow by eating even more food. If you find that after eating at a caloric surplus of 500-800 calories a day you only gain about a pound a month, start upping your calories, try to eat up to 3500 or even 4000 calories a day to force your body to build muscle and gain mass.

User avatar #223 to #222 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Losing Weight
Losing weight is a bit more complicated, you find your maintenance level and then you eat about 400 below that, and you can add in some low level activity like walking to burn more calories, while weightlifting to put more metabolic stress on large parts of your body, raising your metabolism. This will cause you to shed nearly pure fat while holding onto your muscle, and you may even be able to gain small amounts of muscle. You generally shouldn't eat below a 600 calorie deficit, especially with exercise. Doing that can cause your body to go into a starvation mode and accumulate metabolic damage, which makes your body resistant to fat loss and can kill muscle gains. Basically your body thinks it won’t be getting food, so it tries to force itself to sustain it’s current weight by dropping it’s metabolism to nearly zero. Many people force themselves into having this affliction, then give up after seeing few results and begin to eat regularly again. This causes them to gain even more fat and thus the cycle will continue when they try to lose weight again. Do things right, take things slow.

It's been awhile since I've changed the paper up. What did you revise?
User avatar #227 to #226 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Mostly stuff about weight loss and weight gain, since I have first hand experience with weight loss (lost 50lbs a couple years ago, was fat **** ).

For instance, previously it said you should NEVER EVER go below a 400 calorie deficit, because it'll cause you to go into starvation mode. That's simply not true. You have to be eating a really really small amount of food for that to happen.

I also changed the protein intake portion. You don't need to eat exactly your body weight in grams of protein. You don't need to be eating extra protein for fat that you have. I weigh 210 right now, and I only eat 170 to 180 grams per day, and I have no problem gaining strength and size.

I also modified the part on clean eating. The truth of the matter is that Calories in vs Calories out is all there is to it. Clean eating just isn't completely necessary for everyone.

Other than that, I just fixed a couple grammatical errors.
User avatar #228 to #227 - marinepenguin (12/15/2014) [-]
When you are incredibly fat you can easily go below that because your body knows that it has plenty of left over energy stores. As your stores get lower, your body begins to lower your metabolism as it tries to stall weight loss. This can lead to people exercising harder to try and make up for less fat loss, and cause even more metabolic damage. Then you can further spiral down by eating even less and exercising even more, causing your metabolism to plummet and you to become lethargic.

I've seen a lot of people I know do this, and it only takes about a month to start becoming lethargic and sick feeling. I should have worded it differently, but I'm trying to keep people from entering this downward spiral. A 400 calories deficit with exercise can make you lose 5 pounds a month at the very least, that's 60 pounds in a year. Can you make a larger deficit and see progress? Yeah of course. Do you need to? Not at all.

That's fairly true, honestly I've read all kinds of things about it, like how we only need .5 g of protein for every pound all the way up to 2g per pound for maximum results. So I try to stay at least up to my poundage in lean mass in protein, but it's good to get people used to eating at LEAST 150 grams of protein a day. Once again, my wording could be better.

And true, but I'm a firm believer that not all calories are created equal. You can lose weight while eating McDonalds every day, but you won't feel nearly as good as if you ate home cooked meals that were full of veggies, fruits, and lean meats. That's just for losing weight though. For gaining mass you don't have to super clean, I have fast food every 2 to 3 days to help keep my calories up.

But thanks for the help man. I'll change some stuff up on my main copy that I have and write a little bit more. I'll try to keep everyone updated on current copies and whatnot.

That 50lbs was lost in 5 months, by the way.

I used to think the same thing about calories being different, but I've found with both experience, and other sources like this - www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4eaJe_lKsU&list=UUNqbcf-5nORpyfzrqQNLSVw - that calories really are calories. Of course it's not always ideal, but it isn't supremely important.

Anyway, let me know if you need anything else on it.
