This is the /fit/ FAQ. You should read it.

It contains a fuckton of incredibly useful information for anyone seeking to improve their physical fitness.

If you post a question which has already been answered in this FAQ, don't be surprised if you find your post mocked, saged, or missing.

It's here for a reason.

Credit belongs to ZigCat for the original FAQ, with small amendments by /fit/ as a whole. RIP ZC.

Strength vs stamina training Anonymous 15/05/19(Tue)04:36 No. 18222 [Reply]

So, I've been into calisthenics for some years now, and have achieved a fair amount of muscle mass and can perform some complex exercises like one arm push-ups and hanging leg raises and stuff like that. I've been mostly following a 6x6 program, in an attempt to get strength above all else.
Recently, I started taking martial art lessons, Pa-Kua for more information. In there we do a lot of calls, but mostly focused into stamina. Countless repetitions of push ups and sit ups and body-weight squats, and a little running too. This is almost as difficult for me as for any of my untrained partners, and many times I can't even complete the full set before failing.
So here's my worry: am I going to lose my long achieved strength and hypertrophy if I continue following this new routine? And if so, how can I stop that from happening?
Thanks in advance guys.

>a lot of calls
I meant calisthenics.

You'll probably lose some of the hypertrophy if you stop the strength training, but you'll still be toned; just not "ripped".
You can extend your workout sessions to minimize the loss, but it will take up quite a bit of time and energy.

It has to do with your personal buildup of muscles as well. If you have a propensity for strength (sounds like it), you won't be as successful in stamina/endurance. (for me it's the opposite, I can run for hours, but don't ask me to sprint for my life) It has to do with fast and slow twitch muscle fibres (early tiring and stronger versus long winded and weaker).

See image for an extreme example.

Gym Trainer isn't being fair , what to do ?

i joined this gym near my house , and the trainers there won't give my fair time on the equipment.

its been 6 days since i joined there, and i only used the Tread mill 2ce :/

the trainer barley notices me at all ,i don't even know if i'm doing it right.

Today i just did some stretchings and warmed up a bit , after 20 mins on the cycle , a group(4-5) of other female members arrived.

since all the treadmill was occupied i asked him i'll work on the light weights till the Treadmill is free .But he says , you have done enough for today ,better take go home and have some rest.

Why not just continue using the damned cycle?

Anonymous 14/11/17(Mon)03:29 No. 16565

This is hilarious. Unless there's something about it in the membership contract they can't kick you off equipment, let alone tell you to go home. That's insane. Complain to the management and/or quit.

Anonymous 15/05/17(Sun)13:17 No. 18218

Why run on the treadmill in the first place? Go outside and run ya hamster :P

I get it though you paid for it. stand up for yourself man. You are the customer and they are supposed to provide a service. PT's are bullies so tell em you'll see from your lawyer or something if they don't respect what you ask for.

Sup guys.
So, a friend of mine is starting this freeletics routine and inviting me to join him.
I've been into calisthenics for years now actually and know a bit about them, following mostly Convict Conditioning and 666. I don't know anything about this new site and what does it have to offer, but I'm generally speaking the kind of guy that avoids all what's new (like this current crossfit madness and shit on the like) and I wan't to know a bit of your thoughts and experiences about this method if you have any to share before I jump into it.

Sup /fit/
I'm a lazy faggot but finally decided to join a gym, where I'm trying to use a range of machines blah blah. I'm also walking a bit, sometimes jogging, and filling in on the odd game of futsal with some friends. So far I've been wearing my Vans for all of this, and it sucks even harder than I do. I only really want to buy one pair of shoes to cover all my bases, are cross trainers the way to go? Thanks!

PS, I won't be doing any big lifting as that's not a look I'm into, but some weights are involved.

Anonymous 15/02/05(Thu)16:28 No. 17369

if its mostly cardio some normal cross trainers will cover you. if you start lifting you will need something flat and stable.

Feiyue's are excellent shoes and cheap as dirt.
Parkour guys have been wearing them for years, chinese kids even longer than that. My personal favorite.

Chuck taylors are supposed to be the best show for powerlifting, and not bad elsewhere.

'Barefoot' type shoes like vivo's or innov8's are super comfortable,but I haven't yet found any that I can really run around in.
