Ketosis and heart rate increase Boydsta 10 1 monthATN_Coaching (1480): Here is my question to this as we have a general basis as to what your goals are. 1.) What are your current numbers, people think they are running keto and really are not as people truly misunderstand. If you have no clue as to how much you are eating issue as that may causing the issues. 2.) How much salt are you taking in, are you using any added sodium at all? 3.) Hydration what does your hydration look like? There is no set goal for water...

Please help me Benchify 2 2 monthsJsn3004 (1126): Start bulking. Everyone on this forum will tell you to bulk. You're 150 and still want to lean out? If you keep cutting you're going to look like you don't lift. 2,000 calories is very low and you already mentioned that you're increasing your cardio. And stop program hoping. Stick to one program.

Thoughts on Fastin Diet Pills? jayjay770 3 3 monthsBeans (4048): My thoughts are that most fat burner pills are overpriced and practically useless. Any advantage you get from their stimulant effects can be gotten with green tea or anything else that's dirt cheap. You can get really lean with a consistant caloric deficit, so spending extra cash when you're not already 7% bf seems silly to me.
How to lose belly fat and keep it off Benzenunovic 6 3 months3rnald0 (10): Agree that magazines are full of bull. You might be able to spot reduce but if it IS possible it will be to such a small degree it's pointless even thinking about it.

I've lost all the weight I have mostly by just eating better and being more active - most of the weight loss came before I started going to the gym regularly. I didn't crash diet or deprive myself during the weight loss. I have still been dropped lbs here and there but mainly have hit a wall. I just recently dropped my calories to 2100, I was at 2300.

Build muscle at maintenance/recomp? Oslo1234 5 5 monthsHamb0 (2146): @Oslo1234 I'm not confident enough about that, to tell you, that you can gain any appreciatable amount of muscle, but not eating in a surplus. The answer is "possibly". I'd feel better just tell you to either cut or bulk, because then it is guaranteed that you will move in SOME direction, rather than using months "maintaining", ie. not getting anywhere. If you want, you can have my opinion on what could be a good idea for...

Transformed myself, looking to get shredded SamirDripz 8 5 monthsAndyCap (118): Okay. the next step would be to track your calories and macros. Macros are things that can be tweaked but in general people here advise a 50/30/20 split. There is more info in the faq about that. If you want to get body fat lower you are going to have to track your calories religiously for a while. Getting that knowledge in place is vital. Also i would advise you add in some HIIT intervals a few times a week. Find out your maintenance calories...

Cutting for 3 months after a 4 month bulk? Oslo1234 11 6 monthsHamb0 (2146): I'm not confident that it could all be done in 3 months. For some people, sure, and for others, maybe not. Given that you are in the 150's, its still a significant part of your bodyweight you want to lose yet. Im not saying you'll need a year of cutting to do it, but probably a little more than 3 months, to do i right. What might be an alternative for you, is to cut 10lbs, take a break from the cut, where you'll stay at maintainance (or even...

FIT Radio app? DancinDirk 4 9 monthsDancinDirk (1): Sadly no, music licensing prevents having a browsable list, it has to have a sense of randomness in order to fall into the broadcast license category, which allows us to keep our rates low. You can favorite a mix though and if you can remember the DJ that made the mix you can find them on the DJ tab.

Bulk??? anteis99 2 1 yearJsn3004 (1126): 15 pounds in about 2 weeks? A bit of overeating lol. You don't need to do cardio when bulking but it can be beneficial. You don't want to be playing basketball or something with a group of friends and be winded as fuck. Either way cardio can be good if you're going over your calories. If you're bulking on 3,500 calories and you think you went over 1,000 calories, over the next two or three days have 1,000 less calories. Either way it's all about...

Started bulking...need advice Vinny 2 1 yearSOLARSUPLEX (6952): You're thinking about this all backwards. First, I understand the cardio if you just enjoy it or play sports or something, but optimally you shouldn't be doing that because that is calories that could go toward adding muscle. Second, don't have a set weight you stop bulking at. Do it in time frames. Bulk for 5-7 months and then spend a month and a half cutting if that's the way you wanna do it. Also eating clean is relative to your...

Eat reasonably and burn more than you consume. This is the physique of someone who...
Too big of a deficit on cut? kozzletoff 9 1 yearqtdreams92 (1624): totally! @Beans .. I guess the most important step is to figure out what your personal maintenance kcal is. That is a lot of trial and error and patience to log everything and keeping an eye on the weight. the calculators give a nice estimate, but for example they were over by nearly 100kcal for me.

Ideal macro ratio for carb cycling anteis99 3 2 yearsWilliamjacksonxo (1): Also, there are 5 tricks to double your muscle for fast body building: The FIRST muscle to engage in ANY movement must be the muscle you are trying to target.

Football/strength/cutting Robin 3 2 yearsRobin (1): Cool. I do intermittent fasting and eat between 12 and 5 and it's been working like magic. I was thinking if I did a refeed my match starts at around 3.30 and ends around 5. So I thought I might eat all my food before 4 on my chest/refeed day then do a 24hour fast after. John Romaniello does a feast fast thing where he does a full cheat day followed by a full fast the next day so u could do that.

You plug in your stats and then it runs off your actual heart rate so I think the calculations are fairly accurate.
Am I doing HIIT right? jazus 2 2 yearsLVjack (2749): In theory yes but doing them outside so that you are at a max sprint and propelling your body forward instead of having the ground moving beneath you will always be better.

Weekly Calories for Fat Loss+Macros KoredeJoshua 5 2 yearsFrostshock (13309): Take 2-3 weeks to find your true maintenance (calculators are just a rough guesstimation). Once you know it subtract -100 cals (going by daily cal intake not weekly) stick with it for a week and reassess based on weight loss. Cut for no more than 12 weeks, 8 weeks should be a good enough time frame to cut. Reverse diet back up, choose what to do from there.

Then do parradiddles lrllrlrrlrllrlrr (right left) and straight doubles rrllrrllrrllrr. Turns it into a brain and timing game and you think less about the actual work. Also. battle ropes...

It's hard to lose waist fat RHGF 13 3 yearsFrostshock (13309): You don't just lose waist fat. That's just not how it works. If someone lost waist fat specifically doing some routine or diet they probably already had a genetic tendency to lose fat in that area first no matter what. The point of the matter is you need to lose overall body fat to lose waist fat. Find your maintenance, cut the cals slowly to a max of 500 deficit, get your macros, train, and sleep. All you need to do.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE FROM BULKING(HELP) ezvmoneybeast 4 3 yearswannabemuscular (30228): How are you checking your BP?

Take it either in the morning before activity or at night after you've relaxed for a bit. Also, personally my BP always starts going up when I drop cardio from my routine. 1-2 sessions per week is usually enough for me to maintain decent BP readings.

Lean bulk - my thoughts - please help Shest 4 3 yearsMonster81 (1678): Use the Harris Benedict formula (it's already calculated in for you). The HB does the adjusting for you based on your choice of how much and how intense you exercise weekly, so you don't have to go "shit I just burned 300 cals on the treadmill, do I add that to my cals I need to eat?". Then with this number, add 200-300 cals for the bulk.

But you're not going to get down to 10% if your not strict with your diet and you're not in a deficit. Like @Jezza_91 said too, you don't have to overdue your cardio just to lose weight. Just stay strict on your diet and lift like a boss and be in a caloric deficit. EITHER way, don't be in a surplus

Is intermittent fasting good for cutting? Runningaway95 29 3 yearssriram (2047): My personal take; IF isn't a magical tool whereby the act of IF provides you with some overall benefit that is superior to any other method of cutting.

Personally, lowering your caloric intake, watching your macros, is far superior. Look at the data provided by Dr. Norton about the...

I love it.

Cardio advice Beebopalooa 8 4 yearsBeebopalooa (70): Thanks for the advice, guys! If I had my way, I would never have to do cardio. Unfortunately I live in Texas where refusing my mother-in-law's cooking would be punishable by death, so even though I barely eat any of the typical southern food, I still need to do something to offset the calories for when I do. Good to know that cardio isn't absolutely necessary though.
Need to lose body fat kgreene110 19 4 yearstrumotivation (25): I tell everyone this and please let me know if I am wrong, but myfitnesspal app has helped a lot. I just started using it a couple weeks ago. But I train hard with my lifting, I do cardio every other day, usually intervals, and keep my food in check. I have lost over 20lbs this year. I got 20 more to go. trying to get to 8-10% body fat.
Low back burn/stiffness/pain while running. DFMaster240 8 4 yearsSnoogal (190): Now then kidda I run a lot, and used to get the same problem. I also used to get the same problem from quads/squats I cured it with back extension/hyper extension(machine). I would do 2 x 50 reps with no weight before each run, and on back day, and on quads days. A little tip for hamstrings is stand on heels and point toes up to really stretch out and hit them more direct. Worked/works for me, every time.

Cardio In4gainZ 8 4 yearseknight (54007): Cardio is never going to be an overwhelming tool for building muscle (although HIIT can be useful). What I was referring to is an average person, looking to shed bodyfat, but not necessarily concerned with hypertrophy gains, or a bodybuilder looking to make the most of limited gym time and content with his/her current size and concerned with fat loss. In that case, cardio beforehand can be useful as a tool. -3X

More cardio = more fatloss .. right? ionatan 11 4 yearsMonster81 (1678): With a caloric deficit and cardio, you should only be looking to lose about 1.5 lbs a week. 2 lbs would be the max. Anything more and it'll be unhealthy (taking into consideration that you're not obese, etc).

whats your HIIT routine? tamere01 4 4 yearsMethod (379): Stationary bike works well. You don't have to keep adjusting the levels like a treadmill and you get a great burn in your quads. I typically go 3 min warm-up then 1 min sprint and 2 min slow for a total of 18-20 min.
Outdoor conditioning cassious 2 4 yearsBRANDON_12 (1528): One of my routines with HIIT is i will run uphill for 30 seconds, then do box jumps for another 30, jump rope for 45, and work on a punching bag for 45. It's pretty good stuff. You can do a lot of different things for HIIT that is why i like it so much. Those things you want to get looks like a good start. I would also get some boxes for box jumps and setup that allows for hanging and doing pullups. 3-4 times a week sounds pretty good those...
Am I HIIT'ing right? YoBrah 4 4 yearsZny93 (91): Seems like you're on the right path for it. When I do HIIT I personally do 1 min off and 15-20 seconds on. If you're seeing results with fat loss & little to none muscle loss then that's the true deciding point on if you're doing it right.

cardio + hypretrophy juanf122388 3 4 yearsBaiTu (3096): Don't worry too much about building muscle. You've got plenty of muscle, it's just under the fat if you're underweight. A hypertrophy specific routine won't help you get muscle definition. Losing fat will do that. Up the intensity on the stationary bike and throw in some sprint intervals while riding the bike. Also, when lifting, keep your rest periods to a minimum - 75 seconds or less. Preferably around 45 seconds.

Or 30 sec all out intensity on the bike with 3 min rests once again repeating this 6-10 times. You could use the same technique for a row machine.

If your cardio is hurting your recovery for your weight lifting, then you are doing to much. If your going to do cardio on the same day as weight lifting, do cardio after the weight lifting. You want maximum performance in the weightlifting. Usually people do 2-3 cardio sessions a week.

High intensity cardio might become problematic in the long run, it may feed into your recovery ability, and as such impair your gym performance.

Would I be shredded in 14 months time? Does Giann4evaMirin 10 4 yearsRamses (223): Exactly what EK said. Personally I think that the best thing you can do for yourself at a young ge is bodyweight exercises. Might sound a bit lame but give it a go. Maybe 2 or 3 times a week just do a few sets of pushups, pullups, diamond pushups, 1 leg squads etc... I don't think 6kg dumbbells will be enough to pack on much muscle, even if you are only 14/15.

cardio advise brahs!!! GettingThere 2 4 yearsDukenhiemer (23893): If you're incorporating cardio into PHAT you will need to adjust your caloric intake accordingly. Especially if you're trying to bulk. I personally do 30-40 minutes of steady state cardio 3-5 times a week to keep myself in shape. I personally wouldn't do sprints with PHAT, sprints tear my legs up and would affect my workouts negatively. There really is no "good" cardio workouts in my opinion, whatever you enjoy doing I would do.

Pre Rugby Match Supplements JB77 3 4 yearscardinal (6175): If you check out pre-workout supps you'll notice a lot of them are just a bunch of caffeine and tyrosine with added creatine, protein, taurine ect. You're looking for an energy boost pre-rugby however. personally I would just make sure your blood sugar is high, you've consumed carbs roughly 1.5 hours before your game, you've had an intake of caffeine and then in addition to this consume a tyrosine supplement.

You should probably mix up your workouts and run harder, not jog. Look at running less and varying the distances. Who has designed your workouts and why?

Cardio and cutting. ilifthard 7 4 yearsNeverbackdown19 (183): I usually dont do a lot of cardio - diet usually takes care of cutting. But if I'm in a rush to cut (photo shoot, stubborn fat to lose for comp) I'll stick with HIIT. Works like a charm. I did steady pace cardio awhile back, but found I got better results faster with hiit. Just depends on what you like and how long you can stand cardio

You need to reach your protein macro everyday weather you are training or not.
Do Plyometrics burn fat? omarpogi43 4 4 yearsmikew (11076): Plyometrics will not help you lose weight unless you're on a caloric deficit. Personally, I would not call any exercise a "good fat burner" because most weight loss comes through diet. However, weight training, HIIT cardio, plyometrics, etc. and similar exercises keep your body in fat burning mode.

cardio after legs day? endouille 6 4 yearsEFJK (2316): I wouldn't do HIIT the day after if it's leg intensive simply because you'll interrupt the recovery process in doing so (say sprints, stairs, etc).

moderate intensity cardio...any good? drakula 4 4 yearsmikew (11076): General recommendation is to do any cardio on non-gym days or *after* your workout. I would do HIIT if possible. Saves time and seems to fit with the goal of a sprinter physique rather than a distance runner physique. I don't eat any fruit. Lots of veggies though.

Is there a gray area between LISS and HIIT? mattcrouch1502 2 4 yearsstewie (442): There are different kinds of cardio. In the bodybuilding world, LISS and HIIT is the most common. With endurance sports you get LISS, tempo, HIIT, VO2max etc. What you're doing is most probably tempo. Tempo is at a higher than normal intensity for a prolonged time. As a test without a hrm: LISS (can hold a conversation) Tempo (can speak half sentences) HIIT (can only say words, if that)
cardio doubts anky 8 4 yearsmikew (11076): When I do LISS, I set the treadmill to a 1 degree incline and the speed to 4MPH. It takes a minute or two to adapt but the body adapts pretty quickly. That example is from the article on bb.com. I guess it does seem a little extreme. I usually do HIIT on the elliptical so 30 on/30 off is more feasible there. Also, there is a typo in that article. It should say for a total of 12 minutes not 18. Thanks for pointing out this mistake.
Beginner advice cgfern 4 4 yearsPittMuscle (1896): Don't go too low on carbs, you still need them. Keep your macros somewhere around Protein/Carb/Fat 50/30/20 or 40/40/20 when starting out until you know your body. There's also no NEED to eat 5-6 small meals, if you want to fine, but there's no real extra benefit.

cardio on a fasted stomach?? spyderboys 3 4 yearsEFJK (2316): I think it really depends on the type of cardio you're doing. Fasted cardio is not beneficial as many think (and as EK's thread discusses), however I believe that by taking in a full meal before cardio, you waste the Free Fatty Acids (FFAs) that have been mobilized through sleep that you could be burning. However, these FFAs are burned through LISS, never going past roughly 70% max VO2. Since carbs are the easiest to break down for energy, a...

Morning Cardio salvati5 2 4 yearshurricane92 (3699): I like it, just I don't always have time for it. I like to do AM cardio and then go lift at night. I feel like my appetite is bigger all day by doing that. Its also a great way to lose weight if you do cardio in the morning, and then cardio after lifting too. Just don't use your pre-workout twice.

HIIT jkkj303 4 4 yearsacxonline (1): I am currently trying to retain muscle and burn fat, so at the end of my workouts, I would go to the track and sprint straights and walk curves about 2-3 times a week. Does it matter if I walk or jog the curves? I assumed I wanted to walk as if I'm taking a 30-40 second rest for the next set.
startin from scratch Pengin789 10 4 yearsSwift (1411): Supplements and correct dieting would go hand in hand. A lot of people see supplements as an easy way out, that there is a magical pill or powder to exactly what they need. A supplement is really just there to fill in the blanks in your diet, to provide what your not getting from your regular foods. So while there are pills to increase testosterone or 'kickstart' your metabolism...with an incorrect diet, the effects of these will mostly be...
Dieting vs Dieting+Cardio Highdeas 9 4 yearsYoungbrah (112): I really dont think you should be cutting at the moment mate. Dont worry about how much fat you have on you as you are just going to put fat on again when you start bulking. Also when your muscle mass is higher you can lose weight a lot easier due to more energy being needed to sustain basic life processes, with low muscle mass you will find it very hard to drop bodyfat and even then you cant drop bodyfat without also losing some muscle; a bad...
Bike vs Treadmill Justin94 10 4 yearsShadow (448): Fuck I hate running... Not since I finished playing basketball have a run for more than 30 metres lol Every morning the first thing I do is go for a 20-30 min walk with my dog. i don't do cardio for weight loss btw. Simple diet manipulation and weight training intensity will cover that. I do cardio for heart health and to get some blood pumping thru my body first thing in the morning...
cardio pw? igg 8 5 yearsAlexstak (13): that's interesting man so it will not affect fat loss?
Thumbs Down Education hurricane92 9 5 yearsknockout2281 (181): The video was probably "Forks Over Knives". It's a documentary that shows the correlation between a meat high diet and an increase in cancer precursors. I actually thought it was really interesting. The point of the video wasn't to not eat meat though. It was more focused on avoiding processed foods. They legit had subjects move to a whole foods diet and within a few months they were off all medications, dropped weight, and some even...
Please Critique My Diet mkerdeme 6 5 yearsmkerdeme (7): Thank You everyone for your comments, I was planning on lowering my carbs, but will also adjust my fat intake, I also take fish oil which adds a few grams as well. Will HIT first thing in the morning on an empty stomach burn muscle? I also sipp BCAA when i do my morning cardio

HIIT igg 17 5 yearsigg (2626): jesus....i've said i'm not going to do HIIT right now. I will in about a month time. My other question was whether I should drop the calories when I'm doing HIIT or just keep them where I am now. (clean bulk). Also, when I say will phat not work on a cut, I mean diet wise - as in if i were to drop 500kcal, since it's pretty intense would it be better to go back to my normal split of 2on/1off/3on?
Tough Mudder or Spartan Race? Fitz28 9 5 yearshaole (1920): It can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be...it all depends on how fast you want to finish the race. 3.1 miles is nothing and the obstacles are easy (in the warrior dash) but if you go balls out your lungs will be dying and your lactic acid should be making your legs feel like led.
Weight and Cardio overkill? Nyko 11 5 yearswobbly_91 (60): Also depends on when your last meal was BEFORE you started your workout. If you had a food like half an hour before your workout, you should be fine, if you last meal was like 2 hours before you began I would highly recommend eating/taking something in between. Maybe a BCAA shake?
Layne Smashes the myth of fasted cardio eknight 13 5 yearshurricane92 (3699): Good read EK. Only reason why I feel fasted cardio is efficient, is if I just wake up in the morning, I take some caffeine and I hit the cardio on a MACHINE which forces me to give it my all, as opposed to sprints or manual cardio. I feel that by doing it on an empty stomach, I eat after, as opposed to eating before AND after, meaning I only take in half the calories therefore helping me lose weight through caloric deficit. But that's just my...

Hiit or LISS? Archdacko 12 5 yearsKyle0910 (42): So if I did liss 3-4 times a week the only difference would be a bit of muscle loss and it would take a bit longer?
Any Nike+ users? NorCalJR 3 5 yearsNorCalJR (49): Its fairly accurate, it depends on your signal, occasioanlly it says I started a few yards away from where i actually did or something like that but its good. Yea I calibrated
HIIT salvati5 20 5 yearssalvati5 (22): So what I'm gathering is the most popular HIIT is just a sprint/jog type deal? I'll just have to wait until the weather warrants me running outside.
Do you do cardio when bulking? Be honest MrMailliw 21 5 yearsSidewinder (408): It already exists: http://www.fitnessatlantic.com/images/Supplements/Myostatin-1.jpg There are some breeds of animal that produce very little myostatin, like the Belgian Blue: http://futurismic.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/belgian-blue-cow.jpg This article says low intensity cardio will lower myostatin, which is the opposite of the Simply Shredded article saying only HIIT will preserve muscle.

swimming good cardio? wheels25 14 5 yearsrowie (66): i live on a hilly property thats 250 feet wide and about a 18-20 degree incline , i do 2 warm up joggs up it, stretch then do as many as i can flat out 100 % before falling over in heap like soft dog shit! sprint up, walk down sprint up walk down , so far i havn`t got to 10 reps , sounds like a quick cardio but its murder . I read that swimming is not efficient at burning fat because your core temperatures is not elevated but it sounds like...
cardio while weight training simplymuscle 2 5 yearsMyOwnEntity (1074): Supersets, circuits, or add in 2 LISS sessions at a high incline for 20-30 mins if you are bulking. I am almost positive you will lose muscle anytime you drop weight.
Best HIIT varunj17 5 5 yearsEFJK (2316): The best way to start is 15/45 second intervals. This can be done many different ways, but it's usually a good level that pushes beginners hard. 15 seconds at all out intensity, 45 seconds at a "coasting" speed or even rest period depending on what you're doing. Rinse and repeat 10-15 times. This can be done on a spin bike, stairmaster, treadmill, running outside. If you're doing heavy rope HIIT or sprints, use that 45 seconds for...
Interesting Question? Morgan 8 5 yearsseansm10 (906): isnt that 'window' thing just a load of shit to sell more products? pretty sure insulin spikes when you take a shake postworkout, evidently storing more fat, which seems counter productive to your goal i still take my shake. but still. and dont do cardio before workouts, pretty sure that diminishes test. levels which will lead to poor workout the first paragraph was what ive learned from reading loads of articles. it makes sense too, so...

Cardio when bulking slamdoozle 11 5 yearsslamdoozle (21): The olive oil thing was a joke but I actually just bought a bottle of it and I'm going to start drinking some daily. It may be a good option to drink some before games as it will give me high calories without making me feel too full and sluggish from eating a lot. I'll try and follow my intake more closely and bump it up a bit.
Cardioo training Morgan 2 5 yearsKReed (165): How old are you? The old way of thinking is to take 220 minus age to get a maximum HR. Then you take that number and take 65-85% for the "fat-burning zone". I think this idea is outdated. Yes, research shows that you are using more fat than carbs in that zone for fuel, but the truth is that it doesn't translate into results as well as everyone would hope. If you are only doing 20 min after a workout, don't worry about losing muscle...
