    I'll try my best not to start anything. worst thing that happens he shoves me, i shove him back, he goes in for a punch. But it'll end up with him shoving me and me shoving him back and then me shooting a blast double on him.

    Thanks guys.

    Thing is, he lives a mile away from me, i used to be friends with him, his dad's 240 pounds and 6'1" and has a whole fucking gym in their garage.

    They're kind of an aggressive family. That's what freaks me out the most. And they know where i live.

    Looking at youtube videos on squats etc.
    If the youtube comments are anything to go by, I'm weak as shit, because apparently there are tons of 13-16 year old kids who squat 400lbs+ and bench 300lbs+

    I don't even know why they post that crap, as if anyone buys it...

    Agreed. It's what's expected from you.. Now catch him off guard! If he shoves you, don't shove back. Instead, just knock his fucking lights out, give him the old one two right quick.

    Hi I just started working out at the gym a week ago and it feels great but I've some questions floating around my mind which need to be answered, but I really don't have the time for them right now so just wanted to say hi and soon I'll get to those questions.

    (yes I've read all the informative posts around this section and in some other forums, as well as talking to my gym's monitor, just need to get some small doubts cleared, get some guidance to make sure I'm doing ok, as said I'll get to those later)

    I'M AN ELITIST BELLEND. ASK ME ABOUT MY SOLILLA FETISH!

    I would like some advice about my diet/cutting. First a little background info. I'm 5'8" 154lbs at 14% bodyfat. My goal is to be at 10% bf before I bulk again. For the past six weeks I've been doing strength training along with some HIIT finishers 3 days a week. My average daily macro looked like this: Protein 60% Fat 35% Carb 5% with daily avg caloric intake being a little over 1000. Surprisingly, my energy levels were sufficient and muscle loss wasn't too significant. During those six weeks I went from 18-19% bf down to 14%.

    I feel like I've hit a wall now though, especially with my exercise routine and I plan on switching to another routine that's a bit more demanding (It wiil require longer periods of HIIT at the end of workouts). I'm worried that my current diet will not suffice. I know some of you react unfavorably towards low carb diets, but I live a pretty sedentary lifestyle outside of the gym and man I'm telling you, carbs are not my friend when I'm trying to lose weight.

    When I think about my macros and how I should adjust them to meet the demand of this new routine it seems obvious that I should increase my fat consumption, right? I'm hesitant to do so because during these past six weeks, if I went over on my fat (like > 30g) my weight wouldn't budge.

    The last 4% bf is a bitch. Fasting and eating clean foods (literally just fruit and meats) is key to getting thar from what I have heard.

    It's pretty much impossible for me to lose weight without fasting now. I've been cutting at 1400 calories and around 130g protein for probably a month, and I've only lost 1 or 2 lbs of body fat.

    Finding out that this is how my body chooses to handle weight, it's been a huge blow to my fitness venture. I have almost no motivation in the gym anymore. I don't even want to get big anymore, I just want to be slightly above average, because I feel that's the only attainable goal...

    Lowering calories blindly would induce nothing when you are oblivious to anything else.

    Few questions first;

    How lean are you currently?
    How carb tolerant are you?
    What's your actual diet like?
    How's your weightlifting routine like?
    What kind of anaerobic training are you engaging yourself with?
    What areas still are stubborn and don't seem to get off so fast?

    Around 12-13% BF
    I can't really say, my carb intake is 100-125 on non lifting days, and 150-200 on lifting days.
    I eat pretty clean, but I could probably put more veggies in there.
    I follow Madcow 5x5
    My lower stomach and back are pretty much the last of it to go.


    Squat 350
    Bench 170 etc

    Have you guys ever woken up with DOMS in an muscle (group) that wasn't worked recently?


    I take Sat/Sun as rest days, but I woke up on monday morning with doms in my abs. I didn't even work hard on friday as I didn't get good sleep at all, so there's no way it's from friday's session. I also never work abs with isolation exercises.

    Fucking smith machines, the cable fell off the wheel when I was doing squat, luckily I was just doing a warmup set with 165.

    Thing came crashing. And it was a school gym FML.

    Is there any other way other than eating more calories than you use in a day? Lift weights, eat in surplus (count calories), eat lots of protein (~1g/lb of bw, but more is good)

    Give me an average, "pretty clean" day for you.

    1.5-2gP~/lb Would be better in my opinion. Also, counting calories isn't useful as each calorie is not the same. (i.e apple and icecream)

    Depending on carb tolerance, it should range from 1-2gC~/lb.

    Remember that there is no wrong way, just an inefficient way.

    You can do ABCXABC all day, but the fact is you will stop gaining eventually unless a strong base is made first.

    Some get them, some don't.... pointless question, as you can't prevent them as far as I know.

    I have my own pull-up program I did with recruits and it works the best. I have tried them all with the recruits and the most gain I had was by using the below program.

    Depending on the amount of pullups you do right now when u first get on the bar will be your start point.

    Here is the start numbers and I will explain below.

    1-5 (50)
    6-10 (75)
    11-15 (100)
    16-20 (150)

    The number to the left is how many you can do right now and the number in parenthesis is the number of pull-ups you will do for the workout.

    1. Jump on the bar and do a max set You will rest for 60 secs and during that rest do at least 25 crunches but NO PUSHUPS.

    2. Keeping the number you finished with jump back up and do another max set. You will rest again for 60 secs and do your crunches. You continue to do MAX SET each time you get on the bar until you have reached the number in parenthesis.

    Continue your sets no matter how many times you have to get on the bar. Even if you jump up and only do 1, oh well keep doing it.

    If for some reason you can not even do 1 when you get on the bar, take longer rest but if you do this, you better double the workout because you suck.

    Do this every other day for 1 month and then take 4 days off and start again.

    YOU WILL HAVE GREAT GAINS IN PULLUPS BUT YOU MUST PUT IN THE WORK.
    Started this program today, apparently it's used by a drill instructor in the U.S. Marines. It made me realize how badly out of shape i am, but the good news is that I've got almost a year to accomplish this program before I join
