    Nice, jeax!


    I've heard shit about Metabolism slowing down, and "When you start eating again, you'll get fat again quickly".

    Is this something I should worry about, or should I just disregard that fact since I'm weight lifting doing a fuckton of compound lifts?
    Metabolism doesn't really slow down, at least noticeably with regular diet. But some weight will come back quickly, because you often lose lots of fluids when you start dieting.

    Alright, I don't care about "Weight" Just the fat I was concerned about, so I'm just going to continue my bulk and lift hard.

    Regardless to fluids, if you finished cutting and immediately afterwards you start eating like your normal routine, you will gain fat. Your body is used to consuming much less nutrients per day. What do you expect?

    What would be a proper transition from cutting to bulking then?

    Edited:

    also I just figured out why my bench is so low

    maybe I should do it with correct form next time and not use my delts 24/7

    About time you realize this. Powerlifting benchpress will help you utilize more muscle and by thus automatically increase your bench. Much more healthy anyways.

    Also, I would consider a good transition a slow one. Slowly up calories while gradually reducing cardio. But this is a concern to most people, the "rebound effect", due to poor dieting knowledge.

    If you know how to diet correctly, this is rarely an issue.

    There's no right time to cut. Unless you 110 lbs and think you're fat. Do it whenever, just do it right.

    In very general terms, maybe. Your maintance level changes obviously, as you lower your bodyfat%. Your metabolism adjusted to lower calories. So, you'll have a new maintance.

    Not that simple and straight forward. Read the ebook, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle. Trust me.

    Does anyone here know that one website from livestrong that helps you calculate how many calories you have by selecting from a huge list of certain foods, and calculating how many calories you burned by selecting another huge variety of certain exercises?

    I've seen some of you guys on the DD forum, so..

    Anyone else smoke weed after workouts or on rest days? I've heard of lotsa people who do it during workouts, but I get lazy as fuck and can barely even get proper sets done. Plus, feels great coming home sore and tired, getting the munchies, eating half the house and going to sleep.

    Wait, weed is a muscle relaxant right? That doesn't sound smart to smoke when you lift but I don't know.

    Yeah, it's supposed to relax your muscles, feels great after a workout or when sore. That's why I never understood why some people workout while baked.

    I think toking after a workout would be good, not before though. The endorphins from the workout would mix with the weed high and it would feel great.

    why are you still doing 10 10 10 ?

    do more reps on your first set or increase the weight or you're making much less progress, you fool

    I'm slowly rising weight, I don't need to rush. After all I'm not that familiar with squat. I'd need a spotter if I added like 20kg more weight straight away. I was doing 80kg a while ago, and hoping to reach 100 soon. And I'm not aiming for max strength and mass only anyway.

    Anyway how's 10 reps so horrible you make it seem? Many finnish site I read say 8-12 reps is optimal compromise between mass and strength.

    yeah, but if you can keep doing sets with the same amount of reps each time, you aren't making the muscle work hard enough

    for each set, you are supposed to go to EXHAUSTION, until you are struggling and can't do anymore reps. if you're doing 10-10-10, you can clearly be doing more than 10 reps on your first set

    if you want good results from squats, you have to work really hard to get those last reps
    also... you're doing squats without a spotter?

    Who taught you that? No need to get overly exerted. It's sometimes counterproductive, especially if you do it every workout.

    One should strive to achieve progression with each workout. If it's strength, then it's obviously more weight on the bar, progressively. If it's mass, then obviously one would want to progressively load more weight while maintaining more reps.

    ive read some stuff on several bodybuilders who were lacking development in their legs, and they found out they were simply not working them hard enough, they raised the weights and worked them so hard they could barely stand up after sets (i LOVE that feeling) and they got great results

    tom platz apparently worked to exhaustion all the time, and did 20 miles on the bicycle machine things right after his sets, results are scaring the fuck out of people when you pull your pants down
