For wemon weights and cardio or just cardio Spencer1104 3 3 hoursSalokin (322): Help her to appreciate that weight lifting can build muscle, muscle increases lean body mass, more lean body mass equals more calories burned daily. Get her out of the mindset of "losing weight" and into the mindset of losing fat. These are different things. The scale is an enemy in this battle for many because they associate lower numbers with progress instead of smaller measurements, looser clothes, and a better looking body. The...

Onward Onslaught Cannonball 99 6 hoursCannonball (5863): My hip feels kind of weird, it's like i wanna twist my feet inwards until my hip pops in the back mid part.

Anyone know what this is?

I eat 3 times a day i hate eating 5 times a day a guy the other day in my gym (good shape) told me i'm doing it wrong i should eat 5/6 times a day ... every 3 hours
Older Newb, Dumbbells only FattyMcFat 4 7 hoursJsn3004 (1882): Yeah if you call yourself a fat lazy bastard you're just setting yourself up for failure. You can say you were a fat lazy bastard but not anymore. Like @West165 said read the FAQ and let us know where you plan on going from there.
Back and Leg day 1 or 2 a week? Spencer1104 3 7 hoursframe (28): everything works, do whatever you like more. you can hit body part to failure so it will recover in one week - you will grow, if you like more half-ass workouts not going to failure on one of your gym sessions - you can hit larger body parts twice per week and you still will grow ( you must be able to know your body possibilities perfectly in this case). It all depends on how you like to train, muscle growth occurs if you give muscle enough work...

Macros for cutting VictoriaAlexis1 4 2 daysWest165 (382): Do a bit of research on leptin and refeeed days. Your body is probably getting used to the drop in calories. 450 calories under isn't as bad as I thought it would be, 1400 calories just seemed a bit low. Then again I'm 60+lbs heavier lol.

Quitting lifting for good. SOLARSUPLEX 8 5 daysSOLARSUPLEX (7714): @NorIda The only app i know that can do it is snapchat but you have to hold your finger on the record button which is useless when recording a lift.

Cutting Jaxbhoy 2 6 daysSalokin (322): Surprised I got here first. Ok, first of all, welcome @Jaxbhoy Second, please read the faq's and sticky threads thoroughly. A lot of work has gone into them to help out people new to the forum. Third, please use punctuation. It will make your posts and questions easier to read. And lastly, your calories are already VERY low. My guess is that you are already on about 800 calorie a day deficit, maybe more. DO NOT LOWER CALORIES ANY...
Pre-meet programming Thomas_Rascon 5 8 daysBeans (4201): The amount of time lifting is a big factor in how strong someone is. I wish I started lifting at 15, but didn't start until I was in college. One thing you'll learn is that nobody worth a damn cares about how strong beginners are. They appreciate that you like the sport and work hard. I think you're numbers are good for 15, but never worry about not being strong enough. Just lift consistently and do you. I don't compete, but you have nothing...

ICF 5x5, and how to cut? Oslo1234 1 13 daysOslo1234 (1): clickable text That was my old thread. If I cut @20% deficit, so at a deficit of 750kcal/day, can I still gain muscle/strength while losing fat? I'm 185lbs, and currently bench 115x5
New Year - New Routine (seeking for advice) Damu 15 13 daysJsn3004 (1882): @Damu I've been working out 3 days a week and have been progressing as well. You still hit each bodypart 3x a week and have plenty time to recover. I'm not saying any routine is better i'm just saying more doesn't always mean better. But Phat is a good routine. I'd recommend you do abs on your lower body days.

Shrug while shoulder pressing?.. SOLARSUPLEX 2 13 daysAnthonyDee (1): Have you considered not shrugging on that side? :P
Are not full bodybuilding better or split? vucutgelistirme 5 13 daysAnthonyDee (1): It depends. Any routine which is based on scientific principles and has sufficient volume, frequency and intensity as well as a good progression scheme and planned deloads should get the job done. With the above in mind, full body routines AND splits can work well, provided they are properly constructed.
Bulk didnt work properly. Cut? Oslo1234 5 13 daysAnthonyDee (1): Nutrition: - Caloric deficit (enough to lose on average around 1% of your bodyweight per week) - Around 1-1.5g protein per pound of lean body mass - Fill the rest with carbs and fats according to personal preference - Aim for 3-5 protein feedings spread evenly throughout the day Training: Any routine with sufficient volume, frequency and intensity that hits all major muscle groups. Personally, I like Lyle's GBR, ICF 5x5, etc.

Cutting for 5 months with no huge changes tman87 13 14 daystman87 (4): That's what I'm afraid of. I do want to bulk but I don't want to do it with +10% bf because I don't want to add fat on top of fat. And you could be right about losing the water weight fast. My first week I lost about 4 lbs.
