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.

I can barely even move my arms Weak faggot 14/07/09(Wed)23:26 No. 14483 [Reply]

Hey 7chan.

So, i got in a gym last Friday, because i want to stop being a beta faggot and get sum fuk, and i think that being fit will help a bit atleast.

I started friday with arms and legs, all good, with 5K weights on each arm, all good, on some routines i had a hard time doing it, but i did gr8.

Then yesterday, i had to do the same thing again, in 3 sets of 15 reps each, and after 10 reps on the first set i just couldn't physically bring my darn arms up to lift the weight, it was really embarrasing, struggling trying to bring up a 5kilo weight up.

Then the coach/trainer gym guy toldme to help my lifting arm to bring the weight up with my free hand, but even then i was struggling, when the first day i did that kind of training i could do it normal, with one hand, with very little problem

Now i try to lift my arms up alone, with no weight at all and i have a hard time doing it too, i feel weaker than when i started going to the gym, and its really embarassing struggling with very small(5k)weights.

Is there anything i can do at home to help my muscles rest faster or something?

TL;DR I just got to the gym, and i'm weaker than when i started and i can't do my reps, what do i do?

Do you think the majority of adults can benefit from regularly consulting with a psychologist?

Anonymous 14/07/22(Tue)13:26 No. 14587

Psychologist are like hypnotist. It's entirely dependent on the person. If they feel that the psychologist is helping, or they want to be hypnotized, then placebo will kick in.

However, psychologist have never really helped me through any problem because the entire time it was "You are getting paid, you care nothing about solving this issue" so each session was a waste of money. The only reason someone should go see a psychologist is to get a perspective they might not have seen, but unless they drag it out, that can be done in one or two sessions max.

Some time ago, a feget told me that the body can only make use of 40 grams of protein from one meal. Is this true at all? This would mean that if i ate a can of tuna and have a glass of milk, i would no longer be able to make use of any more protein. For some time at least.

If this is true, then how on earth do serious lifters keep their protes on top bros? Keep in mind, some pro bros eat as much as 10.000 calories a day. Certainly they can't be hindered by a 40 gram limit per meal?

While we're on the subject, how much protein is enough for a day? I try to eat about one gram per kilo of weight, so about 70-75 grams a day. I know those who eat 2 grams per kilo, but that seems kind of excessive to me, especially when they maybe weigh over 90 kg. That's a lot of food. That's like fifteen hamburgers a day.

Anonymous 14/07/04(Fri)02:17 No. 14413

I for one don't believe such thing as an "excessive" protein intake even exists. I weight 75 kilos and have been eating a pound of meat per day for 5 years now and I've never been better (I also eat cheese and eggs, protein and fats everywhere). I also happen to think that it's unnecessary to eat in those amounts, I do it because I like it and in order to restrict carbs all I can (those bastards are the real enemy in here).
So between 1,5 grams per kilo and infinite is an OK intake as far as I can tell.

Anonymous 14/07/22(Tue)11:08 No. 14584

Excess protein cause problems with the Pancreas. A lot of people who have the muscle milk all the time end up with pancreatic problems.

Hey /fit/,

I had a reaction to a fluoroquinolone antibiotic and all my tendons and joints got completely wrecked to the point of being in a wheelchair.

I think I'm slowly starting to able to walk again after 2 months but the doctors won't help me much and I need to do some exercise to get a blood flow going.

So far I can't walk far it hurts too much, but am trying an exercise bike on easy mode. My knee hurts a bit after but achilles is okay with it.

What good exercises can I do that don't put pressure on joints but get some blood flow going and maybe keep muscles from atrophy? Have to rule out swimming for now.

Also sorry for triple-posting and fucking up posting all over the place. This is actually OP and I completely forgot I posted this here (braindead). It's also in /grim/ now in case you want to know how bad this gets. Trying to do anything after some weeks was a mistake and only created more pain and exhaust precious energy. And creates depression for days.

For the record the only things I'm sure helped were magnesium, NAC and ALA but it's not enough in the end. Maybe they work better while you're taking it.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I was already done with my dose, but I'm sure this will help someone else.

The ankle pain is gone. Still have issues related to the epididmytis. Prior to that I was lifting pretty heavy weights. I'll probably restart in a week or so and start moderately light and build back up slowly to what i was doing.

Anonymous 14/07/22(Tue)07:30 No. 14583

I live with a guy who had an epididimitys too and neither got healed with the quinolones. You could try another antibiotic instead, maybe CMX. I've heard of well results with it.

I'm looking for the RTS manual by Mike Tuchscherer (actually, anything by Tuchscherer would be good). Someone already scanned it but the link is dead.

Also, if anyone on earth had a scanned version of MobilityWOD positioning posters, that would be great.

Let's talk about sex drives Anonymous 14/06/29(Sun)19:09 No. 14342 [Reply]

This is going to sound idiotic, but what exactly is a 'healthy' sex drive? I recently had a complete physical/blood test. With the follow-up, the doctor was asking me about how active my libido is.

I grew up in a household that demonized sex, and though I never drank the kool-aid, it wasn't until the doctor asked that when I realized that I don't really have much of a sex drive. I figured it was more the fact that I hit 27 last March and I'm not overflowing with raging hormones, but according to the doctor, I should have desires to have sex more than once every couple of months at my age.

However, I have absolutely no frame of reference of what should be considered a healthy libido. The doctor couldn't really describe it to me, other than medical terms (certain hormones were lower than average, etc.) However, I've really grown to prefer not masturbating every day.

So my question is, what is considered 'healthy' and is it really that big of deal to have one?

I know I shouldn't. From 16-24, I had what I assume is a naturally healthy libido (once or twice a day) but that became annoying really quick. (I got shit to do other than masturbate). That's sexual prime when hormones are telling to to stick your dick into anything.

Then around 25, it slowed down to maybe once ever other day. 26 it was like once a week, to once a month, now at 27 it's like once every couple of months.

I figured that was typical. I know sex drives slow down. But with my check-up, apparently it's not supposed to come to a screeching halt like that. The doctor wants to prescribe me some hormone treatment, but I do not want to deal with the sex drive again if it's going to be how it was 10 years ago.

I'm just wondering how often should I want to bone as someone my age.

Don't let the doctor reverse slut-shame you. It's weird how we've done a complete U-turn with respect to sex and now you're labelled a weirdo for not doing it. Just enjoy life and forget about your doctor's expectations about your sex life.

Can I lose belly fat easily - what meals - what workouts? ConflictedAverageWeighter 14/07/09(Wed)04:50 No. 14463 [Reply]

File 140487421181.jpg - (348.59KB , 1280x960 , IMG_1095.jpg )


First and foremost - What can you suggest to help me slim this down in three months or shorter? What foods? What workouts that don't cause me to take pills or purchase heavy equipment (as I'm kind of poor), and what have you done to help self-esteem?

Secondly, I understand it is a very silly question to ask. To lose belly fat? Crunches more as I've been told by so many. What meals? Go vegetarian with a little red meat. What workouts? Run, Bike, Crunches. But here's the thing: I'm in my mid 20s (above the half way mark), I feel horrible with my weight as shown in the photos attached, and I want to lose it within the next three months.

I feel like such an idiot asking for suggestions and I feel disgusted by myself. I was a solid 240.00 this time last year, but I began rock climbing and jogging three days a week until mid-March due to injury.

My belly has never gone away neither...
I have some bad habits as follows:
- I work out too hard at times (push body too hard)
- I smoke once every one to eleven days
- I drink once every eight to sixteen days
- I live alone
- I eat alone

Totally. Calorie expenditure is complex and extremely variable from one person to the next. Starvation diets will mostly lead to muscle loss and rebound dieting - they do for the vast majority of people who go down that route. I feel that insulin control has a profound effect on weight gain and body composition. Weight training has given me way better body comp than hours of cardio.

Personally, the formula that worked best for me is the Carb Nite Solution + Weightlifting + HIIT cycling. I recommend Carb Nite Solution because my personal experience with Keto is that my testosterone levels dropped very low from the carb restriction. With CNS's weekly carb refeed, I've lost and kept off the belly fat and my testosterone levels stay strong. Also, it's extremely helpful to be still be able to eat junky carbs like pizza, chinese food and desserts as far as food cravings go. I've tried the whole trying to create replacement versions of favorite foods and in general they suck. I can eat just plain meat, some fats and some veggies for a long time.

What's with all of the bad advice on this thread? OP, if you want to change yourself, start by not being lazy. Properly educate yourself on the topic, instead of expecting easy answers on a thread. Every body works in a different manner, but to understand the behavior of yours you need to understand how the system works. And if you want fast results, it is most certainly possible. But do not expect it to be easy. Losing 5 pounds of fat per week or gaining that amount weekly in muscle? Been there, done that. But I can only do those things because I know my body well enough to fine tune it as I desire, after years of educating myself on the topic and experimenting. Most likely slow and steady would work better for you, as it is hard to fail that way. But, you have to educate yourself, there is no way around that if you count with a limited budget.

Anonymous 14/07/18(Fri)07:21 No. 14546

Do keep in mind, however, that it is hard to be so overweight without eating too much. You're eating too much, plain and simple. Focus on eating less and watch miracles happen. If you find that too hard, try to start by not consuming any more liquid calories. Drink only water. It is an easy way to cut back a HUGE amount of calories and start losing weight, as I doubt you can maintain that belly for long on solid calories alone.

Hello /fit/

Do you recon it to be possible to have a 7x 30 minutes sleep schedule and still work out to any sizeable degree?

Currently I'm napping 4 times a day for 20 min, sleeping 3.5 hours at night. Diet is not a problem.

Plan is to jog 8 to 10km interval every 5-6 phase, and do muscle separately with free weights, maybe in between every other set of jogging. Also swimming every other day, with some increment in intensity.

Sometimes long distance without interval.

Plausible/lethal? Will my body be able to recover with minimal sleep? Or am I being retarded?

Anonymous 14/07/09(Wed)06:09 No. 14468

why would you want to do that? my guess is it could be pretty dangerous, because a full sleep cycle takes about an hour and a half according to what I've heard from my dad, which is a neurologist and knows about this stuff. Interrupting it before it would lead to incomplete rest.
You could try it and share the results, for the sake of science, but my advice would be not to.
