It's that time of the year. Let's see where /fit/ is from
I got my nipple pierced years ago and the piercing is now gone but the nipple is slightly odd shaped and there is a white puffy bit on one side and i squeeze every so often and a graysih fluid comes out what do i do?
Hey /fit, so as a DYEL who's 6'0 and 145lb, I want to put on weight. What's best to eat as a college student? the options in the dining halls are usually always the same but in general what and how much should i be eating each day?
If you are a skeleton and dealing with college dining options, just do IIFYM type bulking.
When I was in the dorms at my school, I was also DYEL and a skeleton, and I was stuck with my school's meal plan.
I would get a rotisserie chicken with a fuckton of rice and veggies for dinner, a wrap for lunch, and two egg sandwiches for breakfast, supplemented with a fuckton of milk.
Shit that makes you rage
>girl with a pretty face asks me for dieting advice
>explain to her calorie counting
>calculate her TDEE with her and give her advice on what number of calories she should be eating a day
>she seems like she understands
>she thanks me and says she'll start tracking with myfitnesspal
>two weeks later I see her again
>she approaches me and says the diet isn't working
>"I've been eating so much better but I haven't lost any weight!"
>"Have you tracked your calorie intake?"
>"No, but I'm eating salads!"
>explain to her that salads will not magically make people lose weight because it contains vegetables
>"But it's healthy!"
>"A lot of things are healthy but in moderation"
>"But it's a salad!"
Who the fuck sold women so badly on salads? For god's sake, it's as though women have this unfounded believe that salads, despite being drenched in cheese and calorie-dense dressing, will make fat melt away because it contains vegetables and not the dreaded CARBS!!!!
What is it about this shit that makes it work so well to curb cravings?
I eat around a teaspoon of it and I'm good. Is it the fat content? The fact that it's a slow release protein?
What other foods work like this?
So there's a fuck load of videos/articles/books out there on form for the big 3 compound lifts and some of it can be contradicting. My questions is what does /fit/ consider to be the best resource for learning to execute perfect technique on the squat/bench/deadlift?
Who /low test/ here?
I do cardio daily and eat only vegetarian foods and limit foods that enhance testosterone production.
I'm almost 30 but I look younger than 20 (even if I'm 190cm tall) and can easily fuck young girls since I have self confidence but look like a young boy. I have almost no body hair but I'm not balding like my father was at my age. Feels good man.
Hey /fit/, I was just wondering, how do I get a physique similar to candlejack? He looks ripped as fuck in pic related, and I think it'd be really intere
Reminder that handstands are the most beneficial exercise you can do
How the fuck does 5/3/1 actually work?
I have a lot of doubts that the volume is sufficient for the amount of weights that you're supposed to do (%RM).
Background: Intermediate lifter here, i weigh 70kg and bench 85kg. I usually train 4 sets of 8 with 80kg.
The program is telling me to train 3 sets of 1+ on 80kg (on the third week). What the fuck is that horseshit?
So you're telling me that 3 sets of 1 on 80kg is BETTER than training 4 sets of 8 on 80kg? Pls science me on this shit.
1. Buy the fucking book
2. Read the fucking book
3. Lift what the fucking book tells you to
4. Get fucking stronger & bigger
What bodyfat percentage is pic related?
When building muscle and bulking, is it more important to meet your calorie goals or your protein goals?
If you meet just the protein, will you still grow?

What's the difference?
Lifting shoes have elevated heels and incompressible rubber/wood sole. Very stable platform for lifting. Shit for walking or running.
Cross trainers are slightly firmer/sturdier versions of running shoes.
Do you need them?
Not unless you have really long legs and a short torso, or you don't want to or can't lift barefoot.
Big muscles but cant lift much?
Is this a thing? I'm more muscular than a regular person and I put on mass really easily, I started running and my legs and butt got bigger. But I can only overhead press 100lbs for 5 reps, and I'm struggling with incline bench at 135lbs for 4 reps. I'm 190lbs at 5'10
I've heard two arguments in regards to how fast you should cut.
>Cut slowly so you can maintain as much muscle as possible. Keeping calories as high as possible will help preserve strength.
>Cut quickly so you spend as little time in a deficit as possible. The less time you spend cutting the more time you can spend bulking or maintaining which allows for more progress over time.
Which argument do you think is correct?
You can also try both and then decide, some people can resist hunger better than others, muscle is not really much lost if you keep exercising.
with heavy lifting, very high protein intake, cutting at only ~1000 calories a day for a short-ish period of time (cycled with carb refeeds and maintenence periods) is totally fine safety wise (with supplemented amino acids, lots of vegetables and electrolyte/mineral supplemente) and muscle loss is minimal.
it's not for everyone though. both slower and faster cuts have their pros/cons and both are very viable options. it's really contextual and even preferential.
Can someone give me advise on this:
I started working out at home in summer and was bulking until a few weeks ago. I've reached a point where I'd need to struggle to get the calories to continue to grow, so I've decided to start to cut now. The problem is, that it's been almost 2 weeks and yet there is almost 0 change in my weight. My lifts are the same.
I keep a good track of my calories and I've not lower the workout intensity.
When I started (during bulk):
