just finished my chemo round and noticed that all my gains are fucking gone.
also had cravings cuz fuck chemo and gained like 30 lb
want to hit gym and start lifting with my gym bros again but my doctor keeps telling me to btfo and rest
what should i do? i cant stand my current proportions. i also researched some posts on bodybuilding which said that lifting + whey make your immune system stronger, killing tumors
How can I get rid of this?
Feels bad finally getting fit but still ashamed to rock tank tops because of those.
Is pork rinds a /fit approved food?
Hi /fit/, I have a few questions. First, looking at sculptures of ancient greeks, how did they get so ripped? I mean, they didnt have squat racks, barbells, or benches. Was it all bodyweight? If bodyweight can be that effective, it seems like a good alternative if I can't get to a gym.
Now, I have some questions about bodyweight fitness, as I really won't be able to get to a gym for a long while(travelling). If I keep eating like I am bulking, will bodyweight give me gains? Should I run to get extra fitness while doing bodyweight? Will running make my ass flabby?...

That guy has very little musculature (you can get that in 6 months lifting, easy).
He looks good because he is like 9% body fat
This is a good goal as you can't expect huge muscularity from calisthenics
I know I wont get huge from calisthenics. I am just looking to be stronger than most, and better looking. The thing I am most concerned about is running. I plan to join the military and go for a bretty active mos, so I think I should run at least 4-6 miles a day, but I don't know if running like that is good for me. I know that marathons are bad and make people skellies, but if I eat enough and do calisthenics, will 4-6 miles a day be healthy cardio/leg workout instead of skelly creator?
This guy gets it OP. After about 6 months - 1 year of bodyweight for your upper body and maintenance of any lower body gains on SS you should have something similar to David's body type after a cut.

I don't think it's for me
What is the best PPL routine floating around the Internet?
Is the leddit routine, with some modifications, just a meme?
Is Coolcicadas the shit?
What does /fit/ think?
Coolciwhoever's has way too much shit in it.
The reddit one is decent as far as a PPL goes, if you chuck in some ab work. But if you're lifting 6 days a week it's best if you've lifted for more than a few months else your body will find it rough.
It will also be easier if you're bulking and making sure to sleep lots. Doing all that on a cut will wear you out.
I realize that; I was being retarded and realized they were each meant for a different level so it's not exactly a fair comparison. I'm curious about what the consensus on these routines is. Is Reddit one actually good? I, personally, would make some modifications to it such as the retarded 5x15-20 face pulls and taking out the lateral raise superset. I also think weighted dips should be in there.
Would a 24 hour swimming pool be viable? One of my main gripes is wanting to learn how to swim but having a fucked up schedule where most of my free time happens to be butt fuck a clock at night.
If there was one would people go to it?
Last two digits for reps, third for sets of you're man enough.
>inb4 bicycle kicks look gay
Does /fit/ want to get shredded or not?
Because the boys get a thread for high test.
Lets have a thread for us girls.
Is there a novice barbell only routine? (no rack/bench). I'm looking for specifics.
Not really that I know of.
But there's no reason you wouldn't be able to get big and strong using only a barbell and some weight, no racks required.
Obviously backsquatting is out of the question which is too bad because the back squat is basically the #1 excercise for overall muscle building and strength.
But the front squat is still a great tool. Unfortunately you're going to have to clean the bar first to be able to do it.
But you should probably be able to do cleans at whatever weight you can front squat for sets of 10 or something.
The most important thing you're going to have to learn in only having a barbell is without a doubt going to be the POWER CLEAN. I put it in caps so you can go look it up and figure out how to do it, or maybe even have a bigger guy than you show you how.
Every excercise you do is going to have to start from the floor because you don't have a rack, so you're going to have to learn the clean to get the barbell in the rack position (standing upright and holding it at your shoulders).
I'm gonna write out a whole scheme for you and it's going to be dependant on you learning these excercises; Power clean, front squat, overhead press, deadlift, stiff leg deadlift, pendlay row.
Training 3xs a week full body is GOAT and probably your only real option here anyways witht the stuff you have available to you.
Front squat 3x8-10
Overhead press 5x5
Power clean 5x2
Front squat 2x5 (recovery, use lighter weight)
Behind the neck press 3x8-10 (use lighter weight than overhead press)
Pendlay row 3x5
Power clean 3x2 (you can use lighter weight if you want)
Front squat 3x8-10
Overhead press 3x5 (try to go heavier than Monday while maintaining good form)
Power clean 5x2 (at least same weight as monday, or increase if you're comfortable)
Pendlay rows 3x8-10
or Pullups 3 sets of as many as possible
How do I get a high-test girl, who now weighs more than me since I'm on a cut, to fall in love with me? We fuck but she won't date for some reason.
>calls me daddy
>massive H-cup tits
I want a gf /fit/ I won't feel like I made it until I have one.
Are rest days a meme? I feel like shit after sitting all day and doing no exercise. I feel great after even a light workout.
Yeah but I had a lot of pain in my back and shoulders and I took a two-day straight break from the gym last week and I healed completely. Then again, I worked out one morning at 6am then went and did a 12-hour work shift and felt like complete shit all day at work.
Just do what makes you feel good as long as you can stay in the game.
how do i avoid lower back pain when working out?
i feel like it happens every time i workout...
>tfw you will never find the beauty to your beast
Why even live, bros?
>No pain, no gain is a myth. At no point during your workout should you feel any pain or discomfort.
>It doesn't count if you don't touch your chest!
