Can energy drinks make you fat? Even the sugar free ones? My friend scolded me like a high school principal for drinking a sugar free rock star.
read the nutrition label..
if if fits your macros, you are good
>Zero carbs doesn't mean zero cals
somehow i doubt there is an appreciable amount of fats or protein in those.
i would be surprised if it had as many as 10 calories.
the only possible detriment is if it spikes your insulin
Alright, /fit/, I'm fucking sick of my body.
I've tried excersising before, but always gave up after a month or so.
I won't be able to go to the gym untill a couple of months from now, so i need to know what I can do to gain weight untill then.
pic related: me now and what I feel could be an achievable goal to reach around summer.

I need help /fit/
I find it physically hard to have sex with girls. I'm not gay. I'm attractive, funny, and can hook up with girls easily, but when I get into bed with them I just can't get it up.
In my eyes it's either; I'm gay, I have ED, or I'm nervous.
I'm certainly not gay, the idea of hooking up with men or having sex with them repulses me, I don't have ED as I can get it up watching porn and can jack off fine, and I don't think I get nervous as I'm still acting fine etc when making out pre-'sex'....

You might not be nervous, but you could be having performance anxiety. Like you're not completely in the moment, you're more like "I really wanna please this girl" and it fucks you up senpai.
Had the same thing happen this friday with a girl I've been seeing - first time we had sex. I constantly lost my erection, condom kept falling off, shit was bad. We stopped and I didn't even make her get off. I feel ya bro.
I've stopped as of a few months ago. I think the trigger of porn + dick in hand = a certain image for what causes an erection. If you lose that trigger and find yourself in another scenario then it fucks you up.
Good point, I'm very unselfish and did want to please her, ironically. So same thing. Next morning she wanted sex again and I still couldn't get it up. Fucking awful isn't it man
Hey /fit/bros do these altitude training masks actually work? Considering buying one but getting mixed reviews on the innanet so fuck it, I come to you guys
>tfw you hit a 200kg squat for the first time but have no gf to share the news with
So I was fat and I went to the gym, did cardio and a bit of weightlifting, mostly lower body because it was easy and I was a little bitch. Now that I lost weight, I've noticed that my pelvis is wide and my lower body is disproportionately bigger than my upper body.
So my main goal is to bulk up my upper body, but that got me thinking: should I skip "leg day" and never do any squats? I don't want my lower body to become even wider, I hate my feminine shape.
This is too difficult to complete on a mobile device
Also need a +/- for student status
Is the soleus machine bad for your knees?
If not, why is the hamstring curl bad for your knees and this isn't?

My body after 1 year of training, after a cut. 78kg 6'1
Now my stats are terrible. However, after I stopped lifting for two months and went back I had to start from squating 60kg, and even that was hard. Bench 60kg as well, ohp 40kg. In two months of eating hard as fuck (reached 85kg) I fucked up all my lifts completely. IN 2 MONTHS. I had no muscle, all of it was neuromuscular. And they just fucking disappeared after not training for a little bit.
I tried a few times breathing squats 1x20,...

Train for about 10 years more, and then tell me the same.
Whats stopping you from getting a big breakfast at Mcdonalds this morning?
What's your routine for serratus anterior day, /fit/?
Why do humans have the ability to build muscle? At no point through our history have we needed muscles since evolving an intelligence and being able to create and use tools that can achieve more than big muscles can and it seems every animal that does need muscle already has muscle they don't need to train for it
Because we are mammals and our muscles have the ability to adapt to the conditions, just like the rest of your body. Also, throwing sticks and stones at stuff, carrying stuff and fighting stuff is still pretty physically demanding, and cars and guns are fairly new.
>At no point through our history have we needed muscles since evolving an intelligence and being able to create and use tools that can achieve more than big muscles
In terms of evolution that wasn't a very long time ago.
/fit/, is using a smith machine for bench press really that bad? I have no spotter and feel like this is majorly holding back my press, a Smith would take this out of the equation. I've been focusing on hypertrophy for a while and want to get some strength gains so need to incorporate more bench into my routine.
Inb4 get a spotter - my training times are too erratic for a training partner.
Racks have safeties you know..
And yes, it's pretty bad. Bench on the smith machine for a while and then try doing a regular bench. You'll convulse a bit. It's because your balancing muscles aren't getting worked.
You could tilt the bar any which way, move it side to side, back and forth. Tilting up and down helps balance the weight on each arm too.
You are just pushing and not stabilizing.
Guess how that will play out.

Not that fucking hard.
"Most barbell exercises can be substituted with their dumbbell equivalent, or vice versa, and achieve the same training effect. As a beginner, you may find it easier or more comfortable to work with dumbbells, and this is fine. The only exceptions are squats and deadlifts, because it can be difficult to get enough weight on dumbbells without making it very awkward."

Suggest compounds movements with DB, I'm rewriting my routine.
All I have down for now is doing curls/military presses as a compound. And a question: if I do a compound movement, does a rep count for 2? I mean, since I do two movements, really, should I go for 4 reps instead of the usual 8?
What's a compound movement for triceps using DB?
And yes, I'm the anon from yesterday, who posted his routine. Thanks for all the input, it has made a difference, I'll train differently from now on (no more rounds, I'll do sets through and through).
And a last question: when it comes to squats and situps, why shouldn't I do these on days when I work my upper body? Provided I have enough energy left. I've never done a "leg day" and I don't know how that'd go.
And keep in mind I have neither gym nor BB available. All I have are DB.
Thanks in advance.
And another question about abs and obliques: should I go for 20 reps or should I do the same as with arms: 8 reps with weights?
I generally go for 40 reps with situps but always have to stop at 20 for a break, then at 30, then at 35. It halves itself damn precisely. Is this good, bad, less efficient than doing something else?
Should I carry some DB on me while doing situps?
Any other exercise I can do at home to work my abs and obliques?
I'm about to work out soon, so I may not respond, but I'll read it all. Thank you.
1x5 deadlifts are actually just one rep because it is a compound movement.
>What's a compound movement for triceps using DB?
You don't even know what a compound movement is ffs, a compound movement that uses triceps would be db bench or standing db press
