Net carbs Takeiteasy 5 18 minutesSickoShreddo (100): @wannabemuscular A carb gets converted to glucose, and then after to glycogen. It fills the muscle, liver and intracellular (inside the cells) with glycogen, anything remaining reaches out to the extracellular part (What you also called water weight) Fiber does not do that, and I meant 6 gram, it was a typo, lel. Fiber does not get digested by the enzymes, like a carb does < it gets digested by a enzym called spit amylase (Yes the spit in...
Tendinitis and squatting jippo88 1 14 hoursjippo88 (10): Just curious if anyone has ever trained around patellar tendinitis? I've always struggled with squatting due to my long ass femurs, I recently started trying out high bar squatting and my knees have been killing me. Any advice for someone with crappy knees and/or dreadful squatting leverages?
Please critique my new push/pull/legs split! forgottenpass 20 14 hoursjippo88 (10): Sorry to hijack, but just wanted to clarify something regarding the push/pull balancing. I've also recently ditched overhead work. With my long ass leverages it just destroys my shoulders. Have been doing a bunch of rehab stuff and have eased the pain, but now looking at my routine as a whole. Does vertical pulling count towards pull volume - specifically in terms of balancing out the shoulder girdle?
My training log getfit24 46 17 hoursSalokin (640): have you considered increasing the weight you're using? I see the last 4 months have virtually not changed, but at these early stages you should be seeing strength increases.

Another LOG for the Old Man wannabemuscular 81 1 daywannabemuscular (32058): @WinnersNeverQuit Hey, thanks for checking in. Yeah, bench is going well. I actually hit an easy 360 last summer, but then ended up with some should issues and took a step back. OHP has been of the table as I've come to realize that when I put focus on it I always end up with should issues. I've been doing consistent light weight accessory type shoulder work for a while now. Hopefully things hold together and bench keeps improving.
New intentions WinnersNeverQuit 17 2 daysWinnersNeverQuit (10200): workout was meant to be squat and deadlift but both areas were in use so did bench instead.

Should I increase my calories? bflare 10 3 daysFiremanSi (42145): @bflare more carbs won't make u fat bro. Too high a caloric surplus makes u fat... yes increase ur total calories by 200-300/week until u start gaining again and hold there unless u stall for 7-10days.

Cutting improvment better than first cut dollar12786 9 5 dayseknight (56434): Still unclear. What does "grams per body weight" mean? Per pound of body weight or per kilogram of body weight? Either way, nice work making the commitment to start tracking. -3X

Cut in winter bulk in summer Humblelifts 2 10 daysJsn3004 (2623): Why would any specific month out of the year make it harder on one to bulk or cut? So if it's September 27th you have problems cutting, but once it hits October, then it's smooth sailing?

Midway Through The Thor Challenge mgurnow 1 13 daysmgurnow (1): Hey, fellow iron addicts. So . . . back in November, I set the goal of gaining 45 lbs. while dropping a third of my body fat in one year’s time. I’m calling it The Thor Challenge because, if all goes as planned, by Oct. 31 I’ll match Chris Hemsworth’s physique when he shot the Marvel movies. (This way I can heft Thor’s mighty hammer on Halloween with pride). So far, things are coming along as planned and, to my surprise, my...

Eagle's log EagleRare10 133 14 daysEagleRare10 (706): 5/12 update Weight: 204.8 My daily/weekly deficits are staying pretty slight, so the weight is not dropping significantly. Regardless, maybe it's some kind a placebo effect, but I'm looking a lot leaner visually. I've had some random acquaintances comment on recent weight loss, and that my arms look bigger, even though the weight loss has been pretty minimal. Ive got to say I'm pretty pleased with where I'm at, though I'm going to continue...
Couple of questions, as a noobie CasuallyLiftin 4 14 daysjostrosky (169): I agree with @FiremanSi. Lift and see where that will take you. You will see some newbie gains as well as some water loss. Now would be a time to look at your diet and just track what you typically eat in a week and see what you would cut out/add in. Cut out anything from a package or fast food and try incorporating whole foods (fruits, veggies, and lean meats) add in oats and other grains as well. I am not saying change your entire lifestyle,...
Cut + strength loss johnb46 10 14 daysjohnb46 (10): I just hit 280 about a month before at 198. generally at around 168lbs with low body fat i maintained a 250 bench or so. Im currently at 188 give or take from 198. was hitting sets of 6 with 225 weekly, then all of a sudden got a single set of 3 and had to drop weight to 205. No where near 10% BF yet still a ways to go but my bench has always been very sporadic and generally terrible. Ive worked the movement for 7 years and been...

How often should i refeed now robinxchrom 9 14 daysSOLARSUPLEX (8296): in my eyes refeeds do not need to be a scheduled day/feel. They are more of a mental break than. If you are going crazy eating your low cal foods, replace your salad with a guilt free steak and potatoes one day and that will get you all out of whack. Some people are better than others when it comes to dieting. All about keeping the mind healthy while you literally make the body suffer.

Am I ready for my first NATURAL competition? kubicka 7 15 daysrobinxchrom (22): If you want to compete, compete. Obviously in 3-4 years of continuously training and bulking, you'll be way more prepared. Its like why does anyone in their 20s whos not 20% bodyfat cut? Because they want to. If you're asking could you win with your current physique, probably not but if you feel like the challenge or competing then go for it bro! Theres more to competing than just winning. Its pushing yourself to those deep and low body...
What would you do? BigMoney 2 16 daysJsn3004 (2623): In my opinion if you're able to count your calories i'd just do a slow bulk. I imagine it being very difficult to cut if you can't prep some food. I wouldn't put much emphasis on an exact number though. It just seems like an arbitrary number saying "sub 10 percent". I'd just go off of how you look in the mirror. And as a natural, the lower you get from 10 percent bodyfat, you're going to look more flat.
