Well it could work this way if people thought in a way that we only deal in things that progress our species, so that in a way we put another kind of advanced natural selection on ourselves to further our own evolution. Only the smartest, strongest, and useful of the species would be allowed to exist. But we created concepts like honor, respect, brotherhood, family, morals, ethics, and other social aspects that show us all as equal human beings who all deserve the same equal rights. But eventually I think science will have breakthroughs in genetic engineering and we'll be able to eradicate most of these genes that promote many of our mental and physical illnesses we suffer from today.

I don't see it as killing, this has been happening for millions of years but it's only seen as 'wrong' because of society
User avatar #139509 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Again, I see where you are coming from, and I understand that society creates the idea of what is right or wrong, because ultimately there is no such thing as right or wrong. The Spartans, for example, killed any child who was physically or mentally challenged because they wanted to keep their bloodlines strong, basically the ultimate for of natural selection. That's why they were so revered as soldiers, their whole society was molded around that concept. So say if modern society cast away anyone who had an IQ under 130, the society after a few hundred years would be incredibly gifted intellectually.

Metabolism is directly related to lifespan and aging.

User avatar #300 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Your metabolism is simply the rate at which chemical processes occur in your body. This has no real noticeable effect on lifespan. The people with the slowest metabolisms, i.e. people who are 50% bodyfat and do nothing all day. Tend to die first in a generation. People who have higher metabolisms. i.e. Those who stay active and in shape most of their lives. Tend to die later. So while I could see how having a faster metabolism could in essence put more wear and tear on a persons body as they age. I think it's a better trade off then not being in shape.

Eating large amounts of food to gain size and muscle mass will not shorten my lifespan. Having a larger amount of muscle mass throughout your life has actually proven to lengthen your lifespan dramatically.

Jogging is an endurance exercise. It focuses on the Type 2 muscle fibers, which are smaller then the muscle producing Type 1. So as the type 1 fibers shrink, your muscle mass gets lower. As your muscle mass gets lower, your metabolism lowers.

If you're implying human physiology is simple you really have no idea about the complexity of human biology.
If someone burns through food faster than the amount they can eat, they won't gain weight. The only reason I gained weight was because I was drinking protein shakes every day and not working out. Once I stopped I returned to normal.

I was consuming a ridiculous amount of calories and not doing anything at all.

Eating that much in actual food would be fucking inhuman.
Suckling down shakes all the time would be just as insane.
User avatar #282 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Human physiology is complex, gaining and losing weight is simple. That's what I'm talking about. I have a metabolism that is insane. I eat nearly every hour. I shit 4 times a day. My body burns through food very very quickly. When you have a fast metabolism you simply have to eat MORE. That's the bottom line. I eat 5000 calories most days. You get used to it and eventually it's not difficult to meet that.

Depends on which end the stick you fall under doesn't it? This ain't about fitness in the fist place, it's about weight, metabolism and weight gain/loss. Some people have to eat tiny portions or else they will get fat as shit. Others can eat whatever they want and not gain a pound. Most fall under some normal range.

With your line of logic you just can't explain that.
User avatar #272 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
You can, using exactly what I'm talking about. But like you said, it's the opposite end of the stick. Your body will not gain fat if you don't eat more then what your body consumes. Period. If you eat more then what you need, you gain weight (that weight is fat or muscle depending on the type of food, and if you do activities of some sort). If you eat less, you lose weight. It is a very simple process. Most people cannot comprehend how simple it is.

Yeah? Well I don't give a shit what you think. My point is that ignorant people tend to know the difference between laziness and and actual genetic influences. There is a difference. This world ain't equal buddy. Neither are our bodies. You'd have to be delusional to think otherwise.

It isn't fair to generalize.
User avatar #259 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
The problem with what your saying is that you are acting like genetics is that big of an influence. Do some people have it better then others do at gaining muscle size or just in general fitness? Of course, but it's not the be-all end-all of how things work. There is only a very very slim amount of the population who's genetics are so terrible that they cannot do anything to make themselves better.

Can every guy work out and get 22 inch arms? No. Can every guy work out and at least bench press his body weight and be fairly fit and strong? Unless you are in that .001%, yes. I'm not generalizing, I'm telling you a fact. Genetics are not as big of an issue to your general fitness as you'd think.

Usually, you go to the hospital to check if you can't gain weight. Maybe it's different for me, since I'm Canadian and we have that sweet-ass tax-funded health care. Does it cost a lot to get checked in the US?

I honestly don't know. I've never gone to the hospital for something like that. Or really at all for anything but basic checkups. My family avoids the hospital like the plague, we refer to super glue for cuts, and boards to splint broken bones. So I guess that could speak for itself.

Oh, I know that. I know all the science behind it, but I don't believe it affects me that much that I would make a devout effort for it. I am a lazy cunt that doesn't like exercise and my weight isn't even at the level of obesity, but bordering on it. If I had something that forced me to do exercise, my metabolism would go up. But I know all the science for it, trust me: It's really all about the weight machines and muscle strength. Improving the muscle mass means your body burns more calories in resting metabolic rate blah blah blah. I'm just a lazy cunt who doesn't want to exercise and gets by just fine. That's it.

I would probably use that if I had one, but I have fucking nothing. It's pretty hard to go about losing weight with no income, no bike, no real places to go and whatnot. And I'm a social reject. Isn't my life fucking beautiful?
User avatar #260 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Well honestly just walking for an hour a day would be wonderful for your health. You don't need fancy equipment to lose weight. I just want to be a big strong badass motherfucker, and unfortunately walking isn't going to get me there.
User avatar #274 - sciencexplain (06/19/2014) [-]
I'll just walk 'til I'm low on body fat and lift to generate muscle to tackle calories in RMM.
User avatar #276 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
That works fine. Just don't jog. That shit burns muscle too. Your metabolism drops, and you could end up being worse off.
User avatar #278 - sciencexplain (06/19/2014) [-]
Pfft, jogging. That's too much for me. And how does that drop metabolism?
User avatar #286 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Jogging is an endurance exercise. It focuses on the Type 2 muscle fibers, which are smaller then the muscle producing Type 1. So as the type 1 fibers shrink, your muscle mass gets lower. As your muscle mass gets lower, your metabolism lowers.
User avatar #288 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Type one muscle fibers are larger, more powerful muscle fibers. I just fucked that up. Ignore "muscle producing fibers"

Do I ever talk about my other fucking health problems? Eh? Cause I have a lot going on, and a good bulk of it is related to my stomach and digestive system. This is the kind of shit that pisses me off. Yes, some people are just lazy and don't know the science, but it's not everyone so shut the hell up.

For fucks sake. I know what it takes to build muscle or weight, but I also know my body isn't very cooperative and I don't have the time or health to worry about it. My point is that my weight remains relatively stable no matter what. All the weight I gain ends up back to my regular zone. And it's not like I've been moving my body very much. I can literally consume thousands of calories per day and not do jack shit and still not gain weight, and if I do, it ends up back the same anyway.

Not even mentioning the fact that I can hardly handle food with the nasua and stomach problems, or my polyuria, thirst and dehydration problems. My metabolism is fast, that's why I don't get fat. Some poeple are just like that. If I ate any more than I used to do regularly it would twist my stomach and put me in the hospital.

I really don't give a shit about your personal experiences, that's your body, this is mine. Stop being a judgmental prick.
User avatar #252 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
I'm not being judgmental. And I still don't believe you have an excuse. I have a friend who has celiacs, diabetes, and about 3 other illnesses that ravage his knees, kidneys, liver, and god knows what else. He has almost died twice. Yet he manages to work out, eat well, and be in pretty damn good shape because he'd rather not die before the age of 30. I wasn't trying to piss you off, but you just seem like an angry person in general.
User avatar #256 - infinitereaper (06/19/2014) [-]
Yeah? Well I don't give a shit what you think. My point is that ignorant people tend to know the difference between laziness and and actual genetic influences. There is a difference. This world ain't equal buddy. Neither are our bodies. You'd have to be delusional to think otherwise.

It isn't fair to generalize.
User avatar #259 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
The problem with what your saying is that you are acting like genetics is that big of an influence. Do some people have it better then others do at gaining muscle size or just in general fitness? Of course, but it's not the be-all end-all of how things work. There is only a very very slim amount of the population who's genetics are so terrible that they cannot do anything to make themselves better.

Can every guy work out and get 22 inch arms? No. Can every guy work out and at least bench press his body weight and be fairly fit and strong? Unless you are in that .001%, yes. I'm not generalizing, I'm telling you a fact. Genetics are not as big of an issue to your general fitness as you'd think.
User avatar #267 - infinitereaper (06/19/2014) [-]
Depends on which end the stick you fall under doesn't it? This ain't about fitness in the fist place, it's about weight, metabolism and weight gain/loss. Some people have to eat tiny portions or else they will get fat as shit. Others can eat whatever they want and not gain a pound. Most fall under some normal range.

With your line of logic you just can't explain that.
User avatar #272 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
You can, using exactly what I'm talking about. But like you said, it's the opposite end of the stick. Your body will not gain fat if you don't eat more then what your body consumes. Period. If you eat more then what you need, you gain weight (that weight is fat or muscle depending on the type of food, and if you do activities of some sort). If you eat less, you lose weight. It is a very simple process. Most people cannot comprehend how simple it is.
User avatar #277 - infinitereaper (06/19/2014) [-]
If you're implying human physiology is simple you really have no idea about the complexity of human biology.
If someone burns through food faster than the amount they can eat, they won't gain weight. The only reason I gained weight was because I was drinking protein shakes every day and not working out. Once I stopped I returned to normal.

I was consuming a ridiculous amount of calories and not doing anything at all.

Eating that much in actual food would be fucking inhuman.
Suckling down shakes all the time would be just as insane.
User avatar #282 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Human physiology is complex, gaining and losing weight is simple. That's what I'm talking about. I have a metabolism that is insane. I eat nearly every hour. I shit 4 times a day. My body burns through food very very quickly. When you have a fast metabolism you simply have to eat MORE. That's the bottom line. I eat 5000 calories most days. You get used to it and eventually it's not difficult to meet that.
User avatar #283 - infinitereaper (06/19/2014) [-]
then good for you

enjoy burning through your lifespan
User avatar #291 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Eating large amounts of food to gain size and muscle mass will not shorten my lifespan. Having a larger amount of muscle mass throughout your life has actually proven to lengthen your lifespan dramatically.

Nice try though.
User avatar #295 - infinitereaper (06/19/2014) [-]
Metabolism is directly related to lifespan and aging.

User avatar #300 - marinepenguin (06/19/2014) [-]
Your metabolism is simply the rate at which chemical processes occur in your body. This has no real noticeable effect on lifespan. The people with the slowest metabolisms, i.e. people who are 50% bodyfat and do nothing all day. Tend to die first in a generation. People who have higher metabolisms. i.e. Those who stay active and in shape most of their lives. Tend to die later. So while I could see how having a faster metabolism could in essence put more wear and tear on a persons body as they age. I think it's a better trade off then not being in shape.

No homo, can you post a pic of your arms. Or just your muscles, this sounds so gay but I'm just curious as to how ripped you are.
#112 to #111 - marinepenguin (08/09/2014) [-]
No worries bro, I've seen you on Fitness some, so I can see why you'd be curious.

I'm about upper 180s in this photo. Currently in the lower 190s now. I wouldn't say I'm ripped, but I'm trying to get there.

My goal is to reach a lean 200, and I have more fat on me now then I'd like.

Oh. I just started taking 100% Whey Protein. I used to take this: www.gnc.com/GNC-Total-Lean-Lean-Shake-BURN-Chocolate-Fudge/product.jsp?productId=33755596

Then I dropped 15 lbs and I am onto whey protein.
User avatar #116 to #115 - marinepenguin (08/09/2014) [-]
That's cool. I've only every used Whey, I'm not going to start trying to actually slim down until I hit around 210 or if I put on too much fat in the process. I'm not sure how big I could get while staying natty though.

User avatar #103 to #102 - marinepenguin (07/29/2014) [-]
Well I'm flattered! I'm sure I could help you, what are you wanting to know exactly?
User avatar #104 to #103 - derpityhurr (07/29/2014) [-]
Well I wanted some advice on a few aspects of the workouts ive been doing the past month
I've run a mile everyday before lifting as a bit of cardio and to warm up; I don't run longer (which i easily could) because I dont want to be fatigued for my actual workout
Do you think this beneficial? I'm aiming to be a bit more muscular and to lose my excess fat
Also, I wanted advice on the exercises that I've been doing; should i post them all?
User avatar #105 to #104 - marinepenguin (07/29/2014) [-]
Well first off, running a mile before lifting isn't a terrible idea, it'll help condition you and keep your cardiovascular system in good shape. BUT, jogging is hell on your knees and if you do too much you can actually impair your ability to gain lean muscle mass. So if I were you, I would do about 3 or 4 40 yard sprints for a warmup instead. It'll condition you, burn fat, builds muscle throughout your body, and isn't hard on the joints.

As for the exercises, post away.

Couple tips here. You have a TON of volume, and it's really unnecessary. You should really only have 4-6 movements per workout max, usually centered around one big lift, which you don't seem to be doing any of those besides bench. So say for back, I'd do Deadlifts, then pull-ups (instead of lat pulldowns), bent over rows (barbell preferable), and some kind of rear delt movement, and then I would probably add in one bicep movement.

You also seem to use a ton of machine work, does the gym you go to have any free weights or barbells? Those will have more carryover to real life and a higher amount of strength and size gain compared to machines.

Lastly, switch it up from 4x10 sometimes man, throw in some 5x5 (considered the best combination of strength and size), 5/3/1 (second best), 10x3 (yes, 10 sets of 3, lots of size gain, lots of strength gain). Toy around with the sets and reps, stick with one for a few months and see how you grow. Find out what works best for you. I'm really tall for a lifter so 5x5 tends to work best for me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - derpityhurr (07/29/2014) [-]
I feel like I should haveve included this; I do all these over 5 days, with back on Monday, abs and shoulders on Tuesday, legs on Wednesday, chest on Thursday, and triceps and biceps on Friday
Do you still feel that I should do less movements?
User avatar #110 to #109 - marinepenguin (07/29/2014) [-]
Yes, I had assumed that you split it up.

Like I said, you only really need 4-6 movements centered around one main lift. Any more then that and you risk overtraining, especially when you work out 5 days a week. I would know, I used to do what you are doing, except I went 6 days a week. After awhile I would start getting hurt, my lower back, then my upper back, then my hip, or my knee. Now that I toned it down I have absolutely no injuries and I feel better then ever.
