This is the /fit/ FAQ. You should read it.

It contains a fuckton of incredibly useful information for anyone seeking to improve their physical fitness.

If you post a question which has already been answered in this FAQ, don't be surprised if you find your post mocked, saged, or missing.

It's here for a reason.

Credit belongs to ZigCat for the original FAQ, with small amendments by /fit/ as a whole. RIP ZC.

I'm 45 and want to build a little muscle mass.

There's a plethora of different training programs and resources to choose from.

Where should I focus my attention?

Anonymous 19/03/25(Mon)05:17 No. 27387

just do a simple linear progression program like starting strength or stronglifts, eat a decent amount of protein and carbs. get a testosterone test from your doctor and consider TRT if you are low.

The Ketogenic Diet 14/12/01(Mon)08:42 No. 16691 [Reply]

Hey /fit/,
After reading up on the ketogenic diet, I've come up with a couple of questions and qualms about it.
I know a couple of you here are firm adherents to the keto diet, so can you explain these please?

1- The brain works on glucose, and will have no substitute. Your body metabolizes the fats into ketone bodies, which can cause ketoacidosis if unmonitored. This state of constant mild hypoglycemia, I'm sure, leads to defects in mental function (named the "keto-mind-fog"). This is not as unsignificant as websites would have you believe, such a mind-fog would be devastating for people whose jobs require high mental output.

2- A high-fat diet means chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, and HDL; bubbles of lipids and lipoproteins in your bloodstream, transporting the fuel to wherever it is needed. The problem is, a high LDL amount is linked and causative with vascular diseases like atherosclerosis. Conversely, a high HDL is linked with a reduction in such diseases. The function of HDL is to bring fats back to the liver to be metabolized during the fasting/hunger state. Does the (presumed) increase in HDL make up for the increase in LDL? Is it even safe to have so much lipids in the bloodstream to begin with? A high fat diet increases the expression of inflammatory mediators, which leads to all sorts of health problems, and also causes insulin resistance (the pivotal point of developing metabolic syndrome).

3- Besides supplements, you can only get a certain percentage of necessary micronutrients from a ketogenic diet, like minerals, folic acid, fat-burning phytochemicals like adiponectin. Also you consume a low amount of dietary fibre. Diets rich in fibre have been shown to reduce the risks of breast and colonic cancer. While red meat (especially the processed kind) has been shown to do the opposite. Is this trade-off for better physique/weight loss favorable?

4- Just making your portions smaller (calorie counting) combined with regular exercise should work with everyone (unless they have a medical condition - though I cannot think of any). Why should people try to adapt to such a drastic change in eating routine? It might be useful from a public health perspective to promote this in countries like the US where people drink sugary "soda"s to oblivion, but the Mediterranean diet provides a much better (though perhaps not as efficient) alternative in terms of overall nutrition. Wouldn't it be better to remove simple carbohydrates (like potato starch or simply sugar in the form of sweets, chocolate bars, etc.) from the diet in such countries?

Please don't get angry with me, I'm just trying to find out if there is something I've missed.

Running a Cycle Anonymous 19/01/19(Sat)23:38 No. 25879 [Reply]

I'm currently just finishing up the 6th week of my first cycle which is 100mg of testosterone propionate every other day, and front loaded with 50mg of dianabol every day. Ending the dianabol after tomorrow (the full 6 weeks), and I've been taking various supplements for liver protection, avoiding alcohol, etc. while using the dianabol. I'm planning on running the test for another 4 weeks, and then ending what is a relatively short 10 week cycle. I've been using about .5mg of arimidex every other day to control estrogen levels (although I may need to adjust this down after ending the dianabol), and I have had good results controlling the side effects (although there is still some expected water retention with these compounds). I have clomid and nolvadex on hand for post-cycle therapy, although I may try just running nolvadex alone, as the side effects with clomid can be a bit harsher.

Almost immediately on starting the cycle, my training capacity became virtually unlimited, although large strength gains didn't start rolling in until about 3 weeks or so, but they have since been coming up by 10 pounds or more a week (for the big 3 compound barbell movements I'm currently repping at 265lb bench, 315lb squat, 405lb deadlift). My tendons and joints are starting to not be able to keep up with the strength gains, but otherwise it's been ridiculous fun. As far as size gains, that is a bit harder to tell. Both compounds I am taking cause water retention (the dianabol very much so), and I saw size increases within days, but this is really attributable to the water in the muscles (and everywhere else really). I won't really be able to tell what actual size gains I made until after I come off of both compounds and the water retention fades.

I'm hoping to keep most, if not all of my gains, through proper post-cycle therapy and sticking with my training program through the ensuing testosterone crash.

If any of you out there have run any cycles too, tell me about your experiences, and if anyone has any questions about mine, let me know and I'll do my best to answer.

OP here: Orals (Dianabol) has been discontinued for a week now, and for the 7th week, I slightly upped the intramuscular testosterone propionate dosage to 125mg every other day. Water retention has decreased significantly, and strength gains are still coming along nicely (although not quite as strong as the were when stacked).

Anonymous 19/02/04(Mon)14:52 No. 26520

OP here: Headed towards the end of this short(ish) cycle, and I've added in Winstrol at 50mg per day as a hardener. While I won't be running it long enough to have a profound effect, I have noticed some results with it after only a few days of adding it. Injections, and Winny should be done by Thursday, and post-cycle therapy starting Saturday.

So I just recently started lifting/working out about 3 weeks ago and I’m just wondering if my routine so far is pretty good.
For starters I’m 6’2 about 185-190 lbs, I’m eating about 3200 a day (trying to bulk) and here’s the routine I’ve been doing- just wondering if this is a pretty decent routine and if you have any suggestions/advice.

I do bench (5x5 of) started out with 155 and today I moved up to 165 (had some trouble on the last set could only do 2 reps so I brought it down to just 135lbs and did 7 reps) then I do pull ups (I did 35 today) and ended it with 50 pushups.

On leg day I do squats (5x5) of 185lbs and then I’ll do some lightweight front squats (100lbs) also 5x5 and then finish it off with some stationary lunges (30 each leg).

I know this is probably a weak ass routine but I’ve never worked out seriously before so I’m just doing what I know. Is this pretty decent? Every week I try to do more weight, pull ups, push ups than before so I’m also trying to improve not just plateau. What do you guys think?

Today, I started taking Zoloft (Oral). I took my first dose some hours ago, and some time ago I wanted to beat my meat. Not only I wasn't getting much aroused (i could get an erection with no problems, though), I also got a bit sleepy. I checked the package insert and it described some of those same problems.

To anyone taking Zoloft, did you get (or are you getting) these symptoms? What should I do?

no need to speak to an MD. its well known that almost most anti-depressants are inhibitors for sexual activity. when I used to take sertraline (the generic of zoloft) i could get hard but took forever to cum. hope you get better man

>it's well known
>implying that day 1 side effects are useful predictors of once he reaches a steady state dosing concentration

Yes ask your doctor over anons on a goddamn imageboard OP. Most important things are it will take time for your body/ brain chemistry to reach an equilibrium on an antidepressant. Like weeks. During that time if you notice things like confused or disordered thinking, or thoughts of suicide, get a hold of your doctor and tell him immediately. I'm not your doctor but are you taking zoloft for depression or for something else? Are you getting enough nutrients and eating clean first and foremost? Exercising? Socializing IRL?

It's been said that many clinicians either don't have enough training or knowledge on these last three things, or don't have enough ability to influence others in this area, and so they prescribe drugs for many cases that could be easily cured by changing diet and exercise, and making connections irl.

Fortune go with you anon.

It will take a couple of weeks for it to fully take effect. Sexual interest decrease is a common side effect, so it's often prescribed with a bit of Wellbutrin to counteract that.
