build explosiveness thru strength training cuz that will help with vertical jump greatly and power exertion. I'd recommend box squats (watch Louie Simmons video on this, the greatest powerlifting adnd strength coach of all time) and pause training like pause squats, pendlay rows, pause bench, dead bench,paused overhead press, etc.)

u need to check your calories per day.
Calo in > calo out : Gain Weight
Calo in < Calo out : lose weight

eat more than ur body burns in a day (use a TDEE calculator to find a rough estimate of how much you burn). Eat about 500 calories more than ur TDEE to gain 1lb/week which is a good number to increase weight by when bulking. I would recommend you watch Athlean-X's videos on hardgainers so you get a sense of what you need to do/eat to get big

Hey bros, how are you doing today?
I've been working out these past 5 months, and noticed some results. Even though I was following a diet (about 2250kcal per day, I'm male, 18 years old, 6'0/1,85cm and about 215lbs/97kg) I didn't lose much fat, and builded up some muscles. I believe that my BF% is about 23%. My body type is probably Endomorph, since it's pretty hard for me to lose fat but kinda easy to build muscles.
My question is: Should I focus on getting muscles first (I don't really care about getting ripped, and I got the feeling that I will look like a really if I lose all my fat based on my actual muscle mass, and considering that part of this muscle mass will vanish too) or to lose body fat?

Keep in mind that some of us have seen this post and aren't replying because you really should figure this out yourself.

I know right? Someone trying to get fit goes to a board called /fit/ - Fitness & Health, which is full of people who work out, and asking for advice. I don't even get what he was thinking.

i have similar stats to u but been lifting for 2 years now, I'd recommend you reach intermediate status (225 bench, 315 squat, 405 deadlift) and then begin a cut. Use ur novice gains to the full advantage, when linear progression stalls proceed with a cut or even maintenance. I have reach intermediate status and am now cutting because I have enough muscle mass to support the look, chances are you wont have enough muscle mass to get the Hollywood ripped physique because u have only been lifting for 5 months

I used to come here a lot around 10 years ago, before 4chan had a fit board, and I remember ZC. It saddens me to see that he's passed, but after searching around on google for a while, I couldn't seem to find any information on him? What happened? Who was he?

What's the best way to lose weight with minimal exercise? I just really don't want muscle to be honest. I want to get back to being a thin twig. So I can wear my tight clothes again. I'm 155 wanting to get back down to about 115 - 120. Also I'm 5'5" if that information is useful.

if you get enough protein already (you'll probably need about 150g a day) then don't bother, but if you need to either easily pack in calories, or easily cut out calories by replacing meals with shakes check out a cheap brand thats not packed with too much shit like myprotein, dont fall for any of the gay marketing ploys, keep up what you're already doing


>>
Anonymous 18/10/12(Fri)17:15 No. 23722

Casein or whey protein. Myprotein is good quality and cheap, nearly always has a deal on. Youll get more protein for your money if you go with powder but food is always better if you can get your protein from that

It's just a convenient method to get more protein in your diet. I'd be careful when buying protein powders however, some brands are known to have heavy metals such as Muscle Milk, while others are known to contain filler such as Musclepharm. It's generally recommended to buy safe brands such as MyProtein and Optimum Nutrition.

I am fan of Manchester United and sometimes visit games of my lovely club on Old Trafford stadium. I am going to visit tomorrow's game with Valencia. Now I am in Manchester city, I have already booked cheap hotel near legendary stadium - Trafford Hall Hotel. I found a lot of useful info about Old Trafford stadium and Manchester city on https://worldstadia.com/old-trafford.html Such kind of information can be interesting for tourists.

I just want to know about the reviews of mountain dog training programs ? Is it good ? Can a woman do his programs ? I heard his programs are all geared to those who are not Natty ? Is it true ?


>>
Tdlsu777 Anonymous 18/10/05(Fri)05:49 No. 23570

Training programs are for women or men and Natty not Natty. All of this is determined by volume and frequency.

John's programs are great. He has a women focused program. I suggest you visit the request thread above and find some to download and look over yourself.

Are the science backed fitness guys getting boring?

Schoenfeld, Helms, Israetel and their add on people like Steve Hall, all spouting science backed training advice.

Study after study comes out and they all have their own videos on it, but there is nothing new about how to train that hasn't been said over and over again.

Thoughts?

It's kinda simple in reality. More volume is better ONLY when it's not slowing the rate of progression on the mechanical tension aspect. for example, if A is progressing at 5% every week (strength wise) with 10 sets x week and we increase his volume to 20 x week and he is STILL progressing at at least 5% every week, then more volume here is better (at least in the SHORT TERM..). But if subject B progress 5% every week at 10 sets x week and at 20 he is just progressing slower or not at all, then lower volume is better. The key is the highest volume with which you can progress the most, and probably a little lower (for reducing injury risk and for increasing the time that occurs every time before approaching the overreaching state, before having to take a deload).

That's the thing, in every Schoenfeld study or whatever, the subjects, even with that high volume, are still increasing weight/reps every week on the exercises (for whatever reason, it can be more motivation, more rest, whatever), even in the last "45 sets to failure x week for quads" study! BUT if it isn't the same for you, then all you are doing is losing time doing junk volume, overreaching sooner and increasing injury risk tenfolds. If those subjects didn't manage to increase their strength, i can bet they would not realize that much hypertrophy, probably lot of edema, intracellular water, increased glycogen storages, etc.. (sarcoplasmic hypertrophy we could call it).

In practice, if a subject is not progressing in strenght (weight/reps/..), then all that high volume is useless. Much better a lower volume approach. It's always been the art of finding that sweet spot for that particular subject, there is no fucking perfect number of sets x week for everyone, it's impossible, there is no fucking need to study it again, and all the inter variability in muscle hypertrophy response during these such studies demonstrated this very clearly.

I think we're on the same page here.

Who the hell has time for 45 sets per week?
