Reminder that if you do any of this
A: Take steroids
B: Take strong supplements (proteins, aminos, creatine or any other bodybuilding supplement)
C: Have a good diet
you are cheating
Do you guys use any 'over the counter' pain killers before a workout?
I'm an out of shape piece of shit and get bad cramps everytime I exercise, but if I take these before I'm fine. I'm just wondering if it would hinder my gains or health at all.
What exercises do y'all do for core work? I'm on some incarnation of 5/3/1, and i want a routine to add to the end of my workout to really build my abs, obliques and adonis belt without adding another hour of gym time
Goal / inspiration thread
Because I like to browse them during workouts
Do you guys count sodium content when couting calories?
Should i really care about it so much?
If you train, you need more sodium ( and potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc) than normies who don't.
Electrolytes are gud.
Try to keep under 3g daily, which is really easy.
Basically just dont eat only fast food and you are set
What is your "go to", secret tips or favorite recipes ?
I use all the time:
Apple cider vinegar: (about 100ml in a 2l bottle with stevia every sunday) perfect for cutting (stops hunger) and recuperating during the night.
Frozen veggies: full of nutrition even with vegetables out of season.
Favorites are onions and mushrooms, i use them in almost everything.
Whole weat wraps: i use them for everything nowadays, you just have to make sure there's not a lot of water, prep time is next to nothing with frozen veggies.
Semolina: cheap and easy to make, goes great with tuna of fried eggs.
Fromage blanc 0%: product, 49kcal for 100gr, great stuff for breakfast, a few fruits and stevia or mixed and rested overnight with some oats.
I've heard about marmite and it's 40gr ( 40 !) of protein for 100g of product, also seems very versatile, I've got great apprehensions about the taste tho.
Go to recipes:
Homemade chili, red beans, corn and red bell peppers, i can use beef but i prefer chicken.
I do this thing with pork and onions, fry some pork up and some onions with a lot of cumin and deglazed with a bit of cooking alcohol.
Marinated chicken with garlic, soy sauce, rosemary, salt and pepper. i fry them up with green beans, broccoli, onions, mushrooms and red bell peppers.
All of these i can use with wraps, alone or with rice.
I also use a can of tuna, fried with onions, 2 eggs and broccoli as a wrap filling for lunch.
I ALWAYS spice rub my chicken. Decent table spoon of coriander, cumin and tumeric to taste. Mix it all up in oil and roll your chicken around in it like a flaccid cock.
Havent crumbed my chicken in years. Add next to no calories to the chicken itself except the oil which I use for pan frying anyways. Tastes better than crumbed chicken by a mile.
Also make my own harissa at home, find a recipe you like online and do it in bulk, fucking god send for steak. Adds so much fucking flavor to it.
Honestly just buy a big book that goes over different spice rubs and pastes and just try out every single on of them, theyre easy as fuck to make and completely negate the displeasure of eating chicken, rice and broccoli every single fucking night.
Also if you can cop a decent japanese cooking book they have literally ten billion different recipes for plain white rice that greatly increase flavor without really raising the caloric value.
Also I cook up edamame beans in vinegar, sesame oil, chilli flakes and salt and just smash.a quarter of a kilo of them while reading or watching tv. They're pretty much calorie per gram too so theyre easy to weigh out.
Basically just learn as much about middle eastern and oriental cooking as you can. They're super inventive with their use of spices and seeds and vegetables to add flavor. Just slap a half kilo of your preferred meat onto any of their recipes and you've got a serviceable meal.
Fuck is wrong with my posture?
What stretches/exercises can I do to improve it?
Or does it just look bad since I'm skinnyfat?
Feels like my shoulders and head are rolled forward and my pelvis is pushed forward as well.
I've seen jockstraps in porn and I thought it was a just lingerie for gay men but I was shocked to learn it is legitimately used in sports.
What is it good at?
I don't understand, why would anyone wear it for exercising?
Can you lift in one or will everything just show through your shorts?
Its help me put 50lbs on my squat :)
I never understood it either, but it's pretty hot so I'm not complaining.
I've always been a fatty, but now at 24 i've started to get fit, thing is my habits made me get some pretty nasty stretch marks. Any way to get rid of those?
Hey /fit/izens I just read this shit
And I kinda liked it,but in the middle of my reading I started to realize that the guy that wrote that probably uses tumblr and now i'm scared of becoming one of them.
I mean idk guys but he is kinda right and at the same time is not tumblr enough for me to hate it.
What do you think?
The entire article falls apart in the face of culture and history. Name a single society where men act the way the author wants them to. Bottom line is when it comes to defending your family and attracting women masculinity sells.
I mean ofc we cant act like little bitches,but he is kinda right that masculinity is a fragile shit,atleast the masculinity that posters here pursue.
I just think that he has some good points and wanted to know if i'm the only one and im turning into a tumblr fag.
What beards go best with a fit body?
This. Beards are only useful for hiding your babby jaw. If your jaw is average or above then just be clean shaven. The whole beard meme is appalling and most people look fucking ridiculous with any facial hair bar short stubble which only works if you're already handsome as fuck or you just look like a lazy fuck.
How much protein powder do i need per day?
Currently on 30g
Do you enjoy lifting weights?
What to do if your parents are gains goblins?
>Won't let me sleep enough to recover normally(they go to sleep at like 11 pm and are up by 6 being loud AF, so even if I sleep at the same time as them it's not enough)
>Keep nagging me about getting a job and moving out and doing chores which further lowers my testosterone via cortisol
>Won't buy good food so I can't bulk nor cut properly
>Can't get gf because of their bullshit

Opinion on high pulls? I've been doing them recently and it's really making my upper back sore.... Think it's better than Power Cleans and rows?
This nigger propaganda triggered me.. hard..
gotta have them faggots, pakis, niggers and women, even if they barely speak english and suck at hosting anything.
