Hey /fit/ I've broken my femur and was on crutches for about a year due to some complications. I lost a ton of muscle and am now a skinny 5/10 150 pounds. I finished physical therapy and am now looking to start gaining my leg strength back any ideas?
I'm 28 and want to make it by 30. I ran a 4:57 mile in high school and slowly became skinnyfat (5'11" and ~130 lbs with 0 lifting in my entire life) until about a year ago, when I began doing pushups a few times a week. This is bodyweight only and with a pump. I use a pullup bar for arms and back. Going to start planking for core. I am genuinely only lifting for girls right now but I do like randomly noticing my arms being bigger when I'm reaching for stuff.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO MAKE IT BY 30
Also, I;m thinking about thos Beans.
If you want to continue with bodyweight, then keep adding weight in a backpack or invest in a weighted vest. Also, modify the exercises to increase difficulty. ex. Push ups-> diamond pushups-> one handed pushups or raised leg pushup-> handstand pushup.
Then just fucking stuff your face.
Redpill me on Masturbation, is it harmful?
so is it 5 reps, 8 reps or 12 reps to get swole?
I never do more than 2 or 3 reps on my squats and olympic lifts. 5 reps for heavy upper body compounds (weighted dips/pull ups, ohp, rows, bench), 10-12 reps for assistance and isolation, 12-15 reps for abs/lower back exercices
Stick of butter a day.
Good for test right brahs? Any downsides?
you have about 5 minutes to talk me out of this shit bros
Give it to me raw bros, is my meal /fit/ approved?
Zyzz was 6'1".
How can I ever make it?
I feel that I'll always be that average height guy with a nice body.
Just get taller. And plus, you arent trying to be zyzz. You are trying to be the best version of yourself. Learn life. Look into Taoism. Look into my ass. Tell me what you find. Stroke my needledick.
Ive been lifting for 4yrs now. Ask me anything.
Is Calisthenics just an unwinnable battle for gains?
Yea ok but I've heard complete opposite answers on various threads.
I'm a beginner will it at least help me with gains there?
>Is Calisthenics just an unwinnable battle for gains?
Nope,but is really hard to progres (Reach a good strength and muscular developmen)
You'll get faster and better gains on SS,they are basically the same movements.
push up=bench press
squat=low bar squat
hand stand push ups:militar press
pull up= weighted pull up
And various accessories such as dips-skullcrushes,rows,hyperextensions etc.

No. It means DOMS.
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.
It's totally normal when you start and don't be afraid to lift if you're still a little sore from your last workou.t you are not doing any damage.
It will go away within a couple weeks if you are consistently working out. You will only feel it again if you start a new exercise or take a long break from lifting. No pain no gain is the biggest exercising meme out there.
Today I got my first 495lb deadlift - I even did a 500lb one right after just because my power-lifting coach would have said something along the lines, "why didn't you throw 2.5 lbs each side for an even 500?"
It was about 2.5 years ago, when I just turned 21, that I pulled my first 4 plate deadlift. With school and life getting in the way, it took time to reach where I am now.
I haven't been a regular here for years. I just thought I would come back and post this to hopefully give you guys some positivity and to also thank...

>pulled my first deadlift
R U avin a giggle M8?
Muscles can only pull, anon.
Also, memeing aside, it's best described as a pull.
Don't let shit get in the way next time anon. I haven't missed a training day since I've started in September 2013 besides when I had the flu. That includes working 25-30 hours and taking 17 units this last semester, and now I deadlift 600. It's not a matter of having time, it's making it.
/fit/ have any good advice for a Corporate Lawyer slave looking to avoid a heart attack by the time I'm 35.
I work 12 hours days and looking for some routine to at least stay somewhat healthy.
Have you rejected a girl's advances because you haven't "made it" yet? I can't bench 225, how could she possibly be into me?

/fit/, I'm somewhat of a skeleton and I need to bulk up. The problem is, due to my living arrangements, I have no access to a functional kitchen. I cannot store or prepare any food for myself. No stove, no fridge, no dishes, nothing.
I'm looking to fix this, obviously, but in the meantime, any ideas for ways to meet the diet requirements anyway? It'll probably be half a year to a year before I can move anywhere else and I don't want to waste all this time because of something stupid like not being able to cook for myself.
I live with my mom, who's a bit of a hoarder, in a very small apartment. The kitchen area is pretty much ground zero of roof leaks, hoarding, and neglect (resulting in broken appliances). I wouldn't even know where to start to fix that, and I don't really want to sink any money into this place.
