well thats kinda one of the things of hitlers old imperial german WW1 mindset - troops move only as the generals tell them when the generals tell them

one little quirk i remember hitler did was occasionally when production quotes came in he'd fuck around talking about what he knew about a certain thing on the list like shell calibers and the generals just had to stand there and listen till he stopped talking

if the generals had been allowed to run things properly...then france would have been rommel's fortress....he was a cityfighter and he would have built up the coastal defences better and spread troops out better rather than cluster them as hitler did.....if he gave rommel a free hand then allies would never have set foot in france and eventually germany would have settled in spain and used that as their launchpad for missiles pointed at usa to warn them "stay away"

the silliest thing about the eastern front is that the russians didnt give a shit what germany did as long as they stayed on their side of the polish border.....germany could have taken everything from finland to romania and russia would have just questioned would it mean better trade from centralized german leadership
plus it wouldnt have taken much to get russia to play ball on purging undesirables....hell russia hated jews more just over the political drive against capitalism rather than race

In the west most of Germanys military was in the Caen, the 5th Armored, and we had them convinced that Patton would lead an invasion there. We also had the Germans thinking we would lead a minor invasion into Norway, so they had 250,000 troops up there as well.

Then on top of that, when DDay finally happened, Rommel and Von Rundsted were told not to move their armor, so instead of a counter attack from Rommels Panzers in the South and Rundsteds 5th Armored from the NorthEast, we were allowed to gain a foothold.


As for Russia, an invasion was imminent. The Russians hated fascism, and the Germans hated Communism, they both considered each other to be inferior races and a conflict was inevitable. Had Hitler not invaded in 1942, Stalin would have invaded Germany in 1943-44. They only worked together to get some extra territory and resources.

one of the main reasons germany lost was being pulled in 3 directions...if they had secured europe...then play with russia....then africa.....

russians dont give a shit who leads them in fact soviets welcomed the germans as better than the ussr....in fact general vlasov joined the germans leading his own russian troops against the ussr....given more time he could have gained more troops and pushed harder into russia

Funnily enough the Luftwaffe very nearly succeeded in defeating the RAF in the Battle of Britain, but then some German bombers on a night raid went off-course and hit London by mistake, then the RAF hit Berlin in retaliation, and Hitler forced the Luftwaffe to switch to city bombing. Had that not happened, it's entirely possible that the Germans would've gained total air supremacy over the English Channel within six to eight weeks, which would've allowed them to attack shipping alongside the Kriegsmarine and starve the UK into surrender by the start of 1941.

Hitler had a problem of forcing generals to act in rigid lines with no ability to retreat tactically or with any sort of strategy. He wanted every inch of ground to be held at all cost.

One general that ignored that was Kesselring in Italy. He led a slow and steady tactical retreat up the peninsula starting in early 1943, and had barely been pushed to the Alps by 1945 with the bare minimum in terms of supply and troops. And it was one of the most bloody theaters in terms of lives for amount of ground gained.

If he had allowed Model, Krieg, Rommel or Von Rundsted to simply do their jobs and not try to micromanage every conflict, the war would have been, at the very least, been extended into late 1945 or early 1946.

I don't have a liking for Herman Göring, he put way too much faith in the Luftwaffe and it cost Germany Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain.

Plus if Rommel had been allowed to beat back Montgomery in Africa, Britain would have likely capitulated, and Germany would have had the oil from the middle east and extra manpower from Rommel in the South to lead a three pronged attack into Russia. Russia would have capitulated soon after as well, and the US would have likely focused most of our efforts in the Pacific.

How this would have effected the course of history is another debate all together.

Why?
User avatar #29954 - ferrocordis (04/23/2015) [-]
Muscle is more dense then fat, thus, if you have a lot, you would weigh more then if you wee just fat. Here's a good test.

Try and float on water, if you sink, you have more muscle then fat, if you float easily, you are more body fat...

Reason behind this magic?!:... Fat, since it is less dense then muscle, is more buoyant then muscle. This is why the US Navy is more relaxed then any branch for body fat ratio... As a matter of fact, the Australian Navy will allow females to get breast implants for free, since the fat they add onto the chest will help them float in emergency overboards.

BMI goes purely on height and weight. It has no way to calculate muscle mass, body fat percentages, or any sort of body composition. 180 pounds at 6 feet tall could look anywhere between lean and mean, or loose with a caboose.

You think it is too much pressing?
I kinda built my program around compound lifts 3 times a week.
I want to try a split program thats like 4-5 day a week, but I don't know a good one to go for.
User avatar #29991 - marinepenguin (04/23/2015) [-]
And that's fine, but bench pressing and overhead pressing 3-4 times a week is a risk on your shoulder health.

There's lots of splits you can do too.
User avatar #29995 - loomiss (04/23/2015) [-]
You should help me build a good split based off my lifts, I am not quite sure what is considering doing too much/too little but my current program is boring me and making me lose motivation.
User avatar #29996 - marinepenguin (04/23/2015) [-]
There are several you could do, and it doesn't really matter what your lifts are when forming your own split following linear progression.

You could do:
push/pull/legs
Back, chest, legs, shoulders
upper, lower
Back, push, legs, arms

Or you could do days centered arounds lifts, with accessory movements based around said movement.

Deadlift
Bench
Squat
Row
Pull up
Dip
Power Clean
High Pull
Snatch
etc

There's almost a limitless number of different splits you could do based upon your specific goals.

He wasn't involved but he was informed about it by the Karl Strölin, mayor of Stuttgart. Strölin informed Rommel about the holocaust and that there is an ongoing plan to assassinate Hitler. Rommel didn't get involved but gave his approval.

Also, earlier than that Rommel and western commanders realized Hitler is insane. Rommel respected Hitler as a rebuilder of Germany, but thought he had gone insane. And when war turned and Soviets started to push back, Rommel and his people had a plan to make a deal with western allies, allow landing in France and join with them to take Germany from Hitler and keep it out of Soviet hands.
But a car Rommel was in was strafed by a british pilot and he ended up badly injured with head injury. Without his prestige there was no one who could take over that plan and plan fell through.

User avatar #169 - marinepenguin (04/23/2015) [-]
Well sure, he had the love and respect of his men, and he had the fear and admiration of his enemies. He could have fled and waited out the war, then let the allies install him as leader, if everything went according to plan anyways.

Problem is that Rommel would have never done that. He valued his home, his soldiers, and his people above all else, he could never sit by and watch as his men were routed and killed. He loved the thrill of battle. If only he had been well enough supplied for the battle of El Alemein, we'd see history go much much differently.

I catch your drift though. If you feel like discussing it, I've spent mannny many hours talking with different people about these sorts of things/decisions, so I really don't mind talking about it at all. For whatever reason people seem to like talking to me about that stuff. Of course if you don't feel like talking about it, you don't have to.
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.

Understandable, it's all good.
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.

Thanks for listening. Appreciate venting more than anything.
User avatar #325 to #324 - studbeefpile (03/24/2015) [-]
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.
User avatar #309 to #308 - studbeefpile (03/23/2015) [-]
pfft, maybe your skin.

I play the funky bass.
I pick up white chicks.
I can dance well.
I have a black name.
I really love fried chicken.
I have really dark hair and eyes.
I know how to move my hips.
I listen to a lot of ethnic music.
I don't get sunburned, I just get darker.

Basically what I'm getting at is that I'm a negro.

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 #298 to #297 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]
Thanks I will, I need an excuse to eat more.

User avatar #279 to #278 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah, my cousin went through a lot of that when he was in combat.
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) [-]
Wow. That's amazing. I have a lot of respect for anyone who proudly serves for the right cause. Your father is one of many that make this nation great.
User avatar #290 to #289 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
I'm sure he'd really appreciate that.

And we kind of got off topic a bit, but I enjoyed the movie as much as I did Saving Private Ryan, and Lone Survivor. You'll enjoy it plenty.

i made the mistake of mentioning it was my sweet 16 tomorrow, which lead to 16 lengths of the gym (which isn't that long, at least where the prowler is) with the prowler. idk the weight because i dont know the natural weight of the prowler, but it had 4 plates on it which was not very nice on my legs

I would call you jacked. Do you do only bodybuilding or strength training too?
User avatar #252 to #251 - marinepenguin (12/23/2014) [-]
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. Then recently I went purely with 5 reps and focused on strength for about 6 months. Now I've been doing a lot more bodybuilding type workouts to try and get bigger and improve my base of strength.
User avatar #253 to #252 - nyawgga (12/23/2014) [-]
Sweet.

I'm gonna try doing 2 months powerlifting and 2 months bodybuilding, alternating. Just to keep things exciting

User avatar #254 to #253 - marinepenguin (12/23/2014) [-]
Yeah that's actually the best idea for people who've been lifting for a few years. Just starting out it's best to stick with something like 5x5 and build up a base of size and strength.
User avatar #255 to #254 - nyawgga (12/23/2014) [-]
Right now that's exactly what I'm doing.

Is there a certain point I should reach where I should move onto bodybuilding?
User avatar #256 to #255 - marinepenguin (12/23/2014) [-]
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.

User avatar #231 to #230 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Interesting.


Now where did this come from?
User avatar #232 to #231 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
I don't know what
User avatar #233 to #232 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
Upon further investigation, you were on the science board after I posted my link. So I'll assume you came from there.

But I'm curious, why do you think that civilizations would commit suicide intentionally? What would lead them to believe that that was the best course of action?
User avatar #234 to #233 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
I actually actually came from religion board, went to the science board after looking through your comments

Its just that life's generally empty. We fill it with stuff but It doesn't last and we'll never really be satisfied. Just what I think. 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.

Most people give up? Or most people endure?
User avatar #239 to #238 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
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.

I'm not sure actually. Hard to pick which one seems more appealing to me.
User avatar #241 to #240 - marinepenguin (12/18/2014) [-]
I'm not saying you have to pick one to believe in, I'm saying that you should be open to all possibilities. If you believe wholeheartedly in one thing when it comes to science, you'll probably be disappointed. For me, whatever happens, happens. If we are alone in this universe, then humanity has endless potential to explore and learn (although we will most definitely remain divided for eternity). If we are not, the we will see how that goes as well.

Barbell Training Guide for Beginners

Intro
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.

Basics
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.

Diet

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.

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.

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.
User avatar #229 to #228 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
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.

what do you think of supersets? like with two movements for example.

They're good tools to use for building size. I haven't used them in a better part of a year, but you can include one or two in your routine if you feel like you need it.

I've found that there are a bunch of variations of it that take stress off the lower back though. Staggered stance, paused rows, etc. You can look some up. Lots of people have issues with rows.

I'm an idiot, I hurt my back from deadlifting yesterday. Hurts to bend around everywhere, I think I had good form but I might have done more reps for the weight I had then I should have...
User avatar #193 to #192 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
What did you do? And where does it hurt?
User avatar #194 to #193 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
After I finished my 5th set in a couple of seconds I noticed the middle-upper left part of my back hurts when I bend myself in certain ways. It's actually I think gotten better since yesterday.
User avatar #196 to #194 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
My upper back hurt like that when I deadlifted heavy for 5x5 every week for several weeks. Deadlift every other back day for 3x5 and you'll be fine.
User avatar #197 to #196 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
Yeah but deadlift was my main movement for back/bi day. I kinda would need another one and honestly power grips and snatch pulls look complicated (and I obviously can't do band pullaparts).
User avatar #198 to #197 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Do barbell rows.
User avatar #199 to #198 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
I do, the problem with these rows is that i literally don't feel my back effected and I try to do proper form next to a mirror. I feel my bicep more then anything. I feel stupid.
User avatar #200 to #199 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Shoulders may not be back. Tuck your shoulder back, like your trying to push the middle of your back forward. If I saw you in person I could help. Basically if you aren't using your back properly, and letting your arms hang too much, your biceps will take over.
User avatar #201 to #200 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
I try to keep my back straight like your supposed too and not move my shoulder, it's what I mainly focus on. I think I might try the snatch pull and power clean stuff. I probably asked this before but anything else you could think of for back except those 4?
User avatar #202 to #201 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Barbell rows are really effective, so I doubt you are doing them correctly.

As for other movements, you could try dumbbell rows, landmine rows, and there's a couple otthers where their names are escaping me right now.
User avatar #203 to #202 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
ohh **** wait, I thought we were talking about dumbbell rows.Those are the pain in the ass ones.
www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/exerciseImages/sequences/20/Male/m/20_2.jpg
Are you talking about the leaning barbell row? I used to do those, they were effective (not as much as deadlift though) to a degree. I guess I'll continue.
User avatar #204 to #203 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Barbell rows are way better. Keep progressing at them. Add 5 pounds every week like you would one of the big lifts. Build ya some huge lats. I just haven't done them as much because they irritate my lower back.
User avatar #205 to #204 - lulzformalaysiaair (11/13/2014) [-]
I always get a slight sting in my lower back as I straighten up after the last rep.
User avatar #195 to #194 - marinepenguin (11/13/2014) [-]
Oh that's not bad. You shouldn't do 5 sets of deadlifts, 3 sets of 5 heavy deads is plenty.
User avatar #190 to #189 - marinepenguin (11/12/2014) [-]
I'm carrhawks7 apparently, sorry. And I found like 3 people, sent it to all 3 cause I didn't know which one.
User avatar #164 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
I'm thinking I need around 120g protein/day if I weigh 135lb now. I don't think my diet however it has transformed to be incredibly more healthy, as in I used to eat McD and hot pockets 24/7 and now the worst I'll have is subway has enough protein so I wanna buy some protein powder for shakes. You got any good, cheap product you know of and also any recipes? Like how much should I add? How much grams of protein should be in my shake anyhow? 50/ 75 over kill?

Also is it bad to have pizza pizza every friday? It's a family dinner thing but I can drop it if it's really bad. I'm sure 8 slices gives a lot of calories though.
User avatar #165 to #164 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
You can never really get too much protein. After a certain point your body just doesn't use it to repair muscle anymore and the extra goes into your waste. So just get some whey protein, 20-40 grams per shake is pretty normal.

As for the pizza, if you are wanting to gain size, 8 pieces of pizza aren't going to kill you. Remember that in bulking periods as long as you are eating decent most of the time, you'll be okay. A pizza or fast food a few times a week may actually be good, it's cheap easy calories that can help you put on size. Just don't make fast food a habit all the time. Subway is actually pretty good.
User avatar #168 to #165 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
there is soo many different whey protein brands to choose from, is there any difference really between them? Should i try to get the cheapest price for most amount?
User avatar #169 to #168 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
I would find a brand somewhere in the middle. Get something from GMC preferably. If you get something cheaper it'll have a lot of filler **** in there that isn't the best. The super high quality stuff isn't worth the cash. Elite Whey Protein from GMC is okay.
User avatar #170 to #169 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
ca.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/whey.html for something like this. It just says 24grams of protein, is that per serving? And how many scoops is something like 2 or 5lb of protein anyhow?
User avatar #173 to #170 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
It says 74 servings. So if you have two scoops a day that leaves you 37 days worth if you get a 5 pound tub.
User avatar #174 to #173 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
damn so 5lb - 37 days - $80 x 10 periods of time in a year = $800 a year approx. **** that's a lot but I guess it's worth it.
User avatar #175 to #174 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
Yea protein can be expensive for sure.
User avatar #176 to #175 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
actually more like 900-1k if +tax and shipping, i wonder if there are stores I can get this **** from so i dont pay shipping. Do they sell this **** in stores?
User avatar #177 to #176 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
I get my stuff from Wal-Mart.
User avatar #178 to #177 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
good i live 150m from one. imma go check some out there, thanks a lot for all your help
User avatar #179 to #178 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
No problem. They're normally in the pharmacy section. Usually around 20 bucks a pop.
User avatar #172 to #170 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
But I'm not sure how big that thing is in comparison to what I get.
User avatar #171 to #170 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
That would work just fine.

Normally 1 serving is 1 scoop. I almost always have 2 scoops.

And I don't know exactly how much there is in each one, but normally one of those things will last me a week or two. Depending if I have one shake or two a day.
User avatar #166 to #165 - lulzformalaysiaair (10/13/2014) [-]
I don't think I get enough calories in my diet. Have any high calorie but good food in mind? The ones without the bad-for-you fat like McD.

Also thoughts on eating lots of fruit/berries?
User avatar #167 to #166 - marinepenguin (10/13/2014) [-]
Honestly I can't think of any foods that have a lot of calories, a lot of protein and are good for you. That's why a burger from dairy queen or whatever won't kill you every couple days. Berries and fruits obviously can't be bad things.
