Not losing weight? barbellbunny 28 2 monthshaole (1911): @ValMadalinski I'll be honest and admit that I don't know much about fat burners but my rule with supplements is that they should all be used sparingly or as little as possible. You should be getting everything you need from your regular diet/food intake. Fat burners are a "shortcut" and might help cut fat but unless that person learns how to keep the fat off then they will be right back to where they started when they get off the...

Problem is I can't get into a deadlift stance. Just focusing on gradually stretching and getting it loose. Also, weight is down to 197 despite taking a full week off of lifting and cutting out the cardio. Probably because my apettite has been shit.

The untitled: MMB's Log MMB Jump to first page152Jump to last page 8 monthsMMB (3616): Didn't updated for a long time cause my workout is a bit boring by these time. Thought last week I did a colume PR for sure, so wanted to highlight it. Got 5sets of 10 reps at 265LB on the squat which I'm really happy with. I've done more reps with this weight before but never close of 5 straight sets.
Progress of bulk. Think of mini cut darklight79 7 8 monthsBeans (3970): You're still pretty lean, so cutting for body fat purposes seems a bit silly. I year you on not wanting to eat as much though. What about just a short break, like a week or two of just eating less but not actually extending it into a cut? I usually do that when I take time off. A week or so of not stuffing myself and I'm good to go.

Clarification arnoldjr 3 9 monthsBeans (3970): I found bro splits fun for the first couple of years of training, but eventually beginner gains slowed down and I found it hard to progress. Programming really comes down to what your goals are and how much time you have, but I would say a bro split is probably the least efficient split for any goal that I can think of.

Weight Gain concern ArchT 5 1 yearsdmusev (1): Hello ArchT! You can be sure that it was not the creatine which made you gain excess weight but the food that you were consuming each day. Tell us what do you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You are definitely eating more than you are burning. As eknight said, if you are concerned about weight gain and you want to achieve some personal goals, you should start weighing your food with a kitchen scale and counting calories.

If the subscapularis is under-performing, it won't hold the joint in the socket tightly, and the pecs will pull your shoulder joint forward...

Dietary question swollenscott 3 2 yearsdarklight79 (2923): When i came off my UD 2.0 cut, i was sub 10% at 68kg, 5'8". In the past 4-5 months of bulking I've gained only 4kg but lifts have exploded and body comp improved. Been adding 15-25g carbs weekly, sometimes more. Tolerating 750 ish g carbs daily. My advise is to focus more on performance in the gym than the weighing scale.

deadlift and squat tehnique golago 26 2 yearsMMB (3616): I personally don't like the way you lockout at deadlifts. Leaning backwards like you do can cause too much back hyperextension with that much load we put on ourselves when deadlifting. Maybe I'm wrong on this but when I use my glutes to lockout anyway I don't need to do that with my back and it makes you stay super straight over your gravity center. As for the squats, like everybody said.. Too fast, I used to do the same but @wannabemuscular...

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Not necessarily. You still have plenty of energy from your meal the night before. My workouts never suffer from low energy doing IF.

almost passed out deadlifting 465x2 Rand 9 3 yearsStupot316 (481): @Rand think the valsava manoeuvre as mentioned is when you take in a large breath but hold it in your stomach so essentially you're pushing out on your abdominal walls. Think what you have done and what loads of us do Iz hold our breath right up into our heads causing burst blood vessels and that red faced look.

Devil's log Devil82 16 3 yearsDevil82 (1240): Todays was squat, overhead press and deadlift. Squats was pretty easy since I only went up to 68kgs Overheadpress is nearly killing me. was so shaky last reps. Maybe I should lower the weights? Deadlift was awesome, felt every rep of the last set. Probably could have added a couple kg more to the bar but that is for next week. Macros today: Over with 7g prot, under with 4g carbs and 8g fats. Is this ok? or should i aim to be more precise?

18 years old/125kg SQUAT/320 kg LEG PRESS PaBloS94 7 4 yearscardinal (6175): Keep an eye out for your lower back arch. If you look at your squat your lower back and pelvis curl under as you reach the bottom of the lift. It means you're essentially compressing the spine. This will lead to injury so it's best to correct it now. Focus on sitting back into the squat and breaking with the hips and knees simultaneously. If needed, do box squats till form is corrected. Keep at it and you'll be at 200 kg by the time you're 20...

And although I'm not squatting near what I'd like or think I'm possible of doing, I've been diligently squatting all the way down and as opposed to just below parallel. It makes it a bit more difficult but my hams are finally growing since the change. I believe it'd be much more impressive to get back to 465 but do it as deep as possible so...

HIIT is very good, in the cutting phase i do on-off sprints (sprint 1 min, walk 2 min, repeat) it really does burn that fat while keeping muscle gains. calories look pretty normal, it all depends on your body type/structure, everyone is different! My maintenance is around 3000 cals and i weight around 188lbs

Blood test Dragonian 29 4 yearswannabemuscular (29982): It's the Cholesterol that helps increase test. It's only a few steps away in converting to test. That's why whole eggs and red meats are so important. Whole eggs get a bad wrap in the general community. They actually don't contribute to raising LDL, they raise HDL (the good cholesterol). Don't throw away the yolks! And like Swayz says, eat a good share of red meat. Just pick the lean cuts.

Progression Progression Progression.... Youngbrah 5 4 yearsmikew (11061): Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 could also work. You can get by with less effort since your goal is to simply maintain. Therefore your motivation level doesn't need to be as high. It's good to take a break every once in a while anyway. But if you start up a strength program my hunch is that you'll get sucked back into the game.

PHAT soreness Rand 6 4 yearseknight (53743): Negative. Technically the human body doesn't produce actual lactic acid. It produces lactate, but even there, increases in lactate concentration doesn't result in DOMS or any kind of acidosis. delayed onset muscle soreness. Lactate can't donate a proton to create acid, thus the acidic form of lactate (lactic acid) isn't actually produced in muscle. That's a myth. -EK
