Trouble losing fat, 6yr lifting, love advice Jcoff 10 2 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6634): I agree with this advice 100%. You've been dieting for so long your body is used to starving. Slowly give it the food it needs and get reacclimatized to eating 3k calories a day and then try to start cutting again. Also as noted, the percentages listed are correct. Carbs are energy, not the devil.

Becoming shredded for the first time ever Buttons120 8 3 monthsSalokin (295): Where to begin... Ok, 1st off, you're not 29% bodyfat my friend, it's much higher, but that doesn't matter. Don't get caught up in the numbers, they don't really matter. 2nd. You've been tracking cals/macros for a long time. What is your average daily macro intake? What types of food provide the majority of your calories? 3rd. How much do you sleep a night? My guess, mind you it's not a very informed one at this point, is one of 2...

Starting Log kmac 8 4 monthsLiftamusprime (88): What about lower body? Deadlifts won't just cut it for legs! you'll look out of proportion. Find a routine thats been properly designed and run it for a fair amount of time. You could try an upper/ lower split, theres a template in the routine for dummies thread but you might need less volume for your experience level. You also need to eat to grow..you'll find all the information you need in the faqs.

Diet down to 185 Bubs126 19 6 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6634): Do a test on yourself, you can find your maintenance pretty easy... Download MFP and just track everything you eat on a daily basis. Just eat normally, don't pay attention to the numbers of things you are eating. After a week add total cal and divide by 7. Thats your daily average cal intake. Now look at the days, if they are ALL over the place, 1000,3500,1200 without any real pattern, the results may be skewed but you can still roll with it....

A little advice - newbie to site CHAPP785 3 6 monthsmikew (11061): No need to eat 6 meals per day. I would use My Fitness Pal to track your calories. Set the macros to 50c/30p/20f. Start by hitting your goal of protein goal for the day. I think a legitimate weight lifting program like Strong Lifts and responsible dieting will be easier than following a video program like Insanity.... not my idea of fun. As @SOLARSUPLEX lots more info in the FAQ to help you get started.

Returning to sport oj205 2 6 monthsmikew (11061): I would focus more on Rugby specific drills as opposed to work in the gym. (Might mean hiring a private coach or catching on with a team to train.) And of course a calorie surplus if you want to regain the 20KG you lost... although I would focus more on getting into "game shape" so the conditioning will make it harder to bulk. Still I understand 7 months is a long time and it could be helpful to supplement your training with time...
Help in Calculating Bulk Calories! Oslo1234 8 7 monthshghani13 (85): @Oslo1234 Aim for between 120-150g protein. That's all you will need. However, make sure you are hitting your other macros too. It's alright if you don't have protein shakes. Google protein rich foods. Yes you can get protein from milk, eggs, chicken etc.

When to cut down protein. Olympian_Andy 5 7 monthsFiremanSi (41716): @Olympian_Andy 270 is overkill IMO. And it also depends on how much of a Lean 190lb u are... are you 10% @190lb which means u have more muscle to lose while continuing ur dieting phase.. if ur 20% 190lb then u dont necessarily have to be consuming anything near 270 even 190g is PLENTY.
new to the forum looking for good help max12480 Jump to first page52Jump to last page 7 monthsdarklight79 (2965): Also, to add to what @Beans and @Jsn3004 are saying, it's better to start off at a conservative poundage so that you have more space to progress. Doesn't matter if you think the weight feels too and and that you feel you can do more. You're still depositing into your "muscle account". The gains add up. Don't overthink. Beginner programs are set up that way for a good linear progress.

Changing nutrition and starting a routine Kind 10 8 monthsBeans (3982): @Kind all calculators will give a different value, what really matters is just picking one, trying it, and adjusting accordingly. They're all just guidelines, chances are most of them won't be spot on what you need. You CAN take into account lean body mass, but again, it doesn't necessarily mean it's more accurate. Plus, you're just adding an extra layer of guessing. Personally, I'd go with the lower end of your BMR calcs to start off since...

As for the relationship between dietary fat and hormonal levels, I have yet to see any research indicating that greater than 25% of your calories from fat make a meaningful difference in test levels, whereas getting into higher fat diets absolutely DOES increase estrogen levels.

At the point you're at you don't need to worry about the detail in your arms and calves as much as just getting stronger.

Sup Alby_Josh 5 1 yearmikew (11061): Probably... there are some beginner workouts linked in the FAQ that would put you on a 5x5 type of routine. Those routines will probably have you back off a tiny bit on the weight but think of it like this - gotta jog to get into a sprint and that's what will happen with a 5x5 program. Just takes a little time to gather momentum. PS- You want to be close to your fail point but I believe failing too often harms progress.. usually means you bit...

It is also great that you are so set on reaching your goals and have a long-term plan in mind.

5 DAY BULKING SPLIT Rui16h 5 1 yearEat2Trainn247 (2557): @Rui16h rather than designing a "bulking" I think it would be appropriate to embark on a hypertrophy-focused training block(s) while eating in a calorie surplus.

Please critique diet + training! Barbell_Jedi 8 2 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (6634): You have basically broken your macros. Easy fix is to add 50 calories a week until you are back to a normalish number of calories. Hopefully with little weight gain. If you notice you are gaining weight. I'd say more than a quarter pound over the course of the week then you need to slow down on the adding of calories.

IF food intake is low and cardio is high, then maybe I would slowly ween off doing as much cardio and add food in little by little--but if not then lean out further. When you get to a much leaner state and then begin to go into a phase where you...

Hello, simplyshredded, help me out. livelovelaugh 22 2 yearsFrostshock (13309): If you know where your true maintenance is, go into a 100 cal surplus from that for a week. If you still gain greater than or equal to (>=) 0.5 lbs, keep that surplus for another week- if you you gain less than or equal to (<=) 0.4lbs then you could safely add another 100 cal surplus. Wait another week. Rinse. Wash. Repeat. Lean bulking made easy, just have to be consistent and track reasonably accurately.
where do i start? shantell 30 2 yearseknight (53743): Absolutely. Neuromuscular adaption to weight training- and thus, hypertrophy gains- take about 6-8 weeks to reach full potential. If you change every workout, that will never happen. -3X

Cellucor SuperHD & CLK Stack - when to take? evolution_fitness 10 2 yearsevolution_fitness (1): CLK is for more energy, but also can be used for weight loss. I use it more for the energy factor.

I know the instructions are written on the bottles, but I have read MANY different things about other suggested times/on an empty stomach/etc etc. so I just wanted a few more educated opinions.

skinny fat bulk or cut? dollar786 5 4 yearsBaggy (859): Consider making changes to your split. That is a lot of arm and chest work with a blatant disregard to your biggest (read: best) muscle groups, legs and back. Regards to fat gains on a bulk. Everyone is different so if you feel you are gaining fat too quickly you could cut back 200 calories and monitor from there. My other thought would be that a 500 cal surplus would be a lot if you are only ever working small muscle groups.

Help and advice needed SamM23 6 4 yearsZny93 (91): Well that "ripped abs and throbbing arms" would be a cut, which is eating ~500 calories less than what your BMR says. Cutting is lowering your body fat percentage, and dropping weight. And with carbs, IF you go on a cut, eat around 100g of carbs a day, this will force your body to use up stored fat rather than the carbs, losing weight & fat. That's what brings out the sculpted arms. If you want to get mass, thickness etc. go on a...

Body problem ! fearless 5 4 yearsBaiTu (3096): Welcome to the forum! Where are you from? (And is English your first language?) Anyhow, you say you're not seeing the results you'd want after three years but I don't know what results you want - bigger, smaller, more aesthetic. Also you say you're not seeing the results you want in strength. Are you keeping a log of your workouts? Are you following a specific workout program? I recommend doing both. Also you say you've been training...

Where to start AdonisBody77 2 4 yearsalexmuller (5449): For beginners it is always best to begin with a starting strength program to build up a good base to start adding muscle and gets you used to the gym environment and DOMS etc. If you use google you will find many starting strength programs. You also need to get a diet to start adding lean muscle. We recommend a calorie surplus of about 300-500. Good luck AM

New Here and Need Advice Please FingerCity1226 6 4 yearsNorIda (45442): I agree with he cut 100%. Same reasoning as skullay. When you see rests its that much easier to stay motivated! The leg workout roar said looks pretty legit. Can't think of too much more than that. Don't puss out on squats. When you think your low enough, go lower! And welcome to the boards. Your a friend of @roar, so I'm expecting you to be Alpha. So don't be makin him look bad! Lol
