I read somewhere that Phelps' TDEE is something like 12000.

Don't know if that's true, but I really need to swim more.

I've come here for one reason. I've looked and can't find an answer, so, i need advice. And, I'm not quite desperate enough to go to the..."other" place.
Long story short, former fatfuck here. I've lost almost 8 inches from the gut, and nearly 80 lbs. I'm thinking now of my goals. I want to be stronger. Not powerlifting strength, but stronger than average. I've heard low rep ranges (maximul effort, 5 reps) does this, btmut does little for size, as this recruits the body to better utilize what it has. High reps (13+) are endurance, and 7-10 for hypertrophy. I want more size, but not too much. The look and general idea I'm going for is your typical martial artist of film, such as Shou, picture attached. If I'm right in my theory, on a full body workout,3x/week if two of these are low reps, and one is median, this should effectively do what i want, correct? Mostly strength, but still enough to get me the size I desire? Also, i know this may make a difference, I've switched to (and plan to continue) a ketogenic diet, i know people may bring up carbs. Just can't eat em. At any rate, am i correct in my theory, or is something amiss?

its best you keep to higher reps, you will still be stronger than average but with healthy bones and joints.

Low rep training is not a good start. And by start I mean - having under 5 years of serious lifting.

Form is very important and every bber out there is stronger than average while keeping in 8-12 rep range. Once you are over 15 reps you can add.

3 times a week might me too much to recover. Consider having A and B workouts and cycling between them every other day in total 3 per week. A B A B A B

stronglifts 5x5 Anonymous 18/03/01(Thu)01:42 No. 20501

what you are looking for is stronglifts 5x5, it is 5 reps each, 5 sets. just don't keep adding weight like the program suggest, and you will notice a difference in a bout three months. Just use a bar that is 45 pounds.

The reps thing is good science relevant to the speed of achieving specific goals, but it's not nearly as important as you're thinking. There's a direct correlation between the size of muscles as how much weight you can lift. If the weight keeps going up, your muscles will keep getting bigger. Have you ever seen someone deadlift 700 lbs who didn't look like they could deadlift 700 lbs?

You're right that high reps is just endurance. They don't really help strength or size for the simple reason that the time you spend adding endurance is time not spent increasing the weight. The difference between low and medium reps, on the other hand, is probably going to be too slight to be relevant to you unless you get devoted to strength or size at the serious powerlifter or serious bodybuilder level.

I'd suggest medium reps (8-12), but since this board is slow, you've probably had time to try out your low-medium split. If you like it, there's no reason not to stick with it. If you've come to prefer the low rep days or the medium rep days, you could switch to all one or the other. You'll be able to reach your goal whichever you choose, and it'd be pretty surprising if you noticed any significant differences.

The things to keep in mind are, of course, form and safety. If you're switching between low and medium reps--and thus between heavier weight on the low days and lighter weight on the medium days--it could be easy to accidentally develop bad habits because the weight on the medium days doesn't feel as "serious." Also, think about your rest time between sets. The strength focused people tend to take longer rests, which is probably more significant than the actual number of reps. That's for powerlifter, 1RM type strength though. Actual martial artists put more emphasis on endurance because tiring your opponent out is common enough strategy, although you did say that you wanted to look like a movie martial artist, not actually be a marital artist, so I don't know if that's important to you.

The martial artist look tends to suggest very evenly developed musculature, so you might put some thought into that as well. Calisthenic exercises tend to be good for that, just keep in mind that for strength and size you need to spend your time increasing the weight you're moving, not just mastering complex gymnastic skills. As an example, moving from push-ups to one arm push-ups is an increase in weight, but moving from push-ups to two-finger push-ups is an increase in one particularly specialized gymnastic skill.

We purged the board of requests threads yesterday, and while I was in there, I decided to clean up the /fit/erature thread. Was full of dead links, so I started deleting posts, and then realized there were >5000 of them, and couldn't batch delete them because Kusaba hates doing work. I considered making a script go through and delete all the posts that didn't have working links, but then I realized you guys obfuscate your links.

So I got lazy and nuked the thread.

Use the requests thread for now. If there's ever a /fit/ mod again, they may reinstate it.

Tips for olympic weightlifting beginner recovering from snatch-related injury?

Currently running a 40g Fat/200g Carb/200g Protein diet, doing isolation movements this week until I can hit the gym in college next week.

Planning on giving Torokhtiy's 12 week program a go.

Anything in particular /fit/ would suggest?

DUDE you NEED MORE FAT! i would focus on eating 70-80g a day of fat from avocados and fatty fish(or fish oil supplements) for your hormones to be healthy. i would also suggest looking into carb cycling so you can be your fullest on your main training days try checking out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gicPn3nAPQ

The Ketogenic Diet 14/12/01(Mon)08:42 No. 16691 [Reply]

Hey /fit/,
After reading up on the ketogenic diet, I've come up with a couple of questions and qualms about it.
I know a couple of you here are firm adherents to the keto diet, so can you explain these please?

1- The brain works on glucose, and will have no substitute. Your body metabolizes the fats into ketone bodies, which can cause ketoacidosis if unmonitored. This state of constant mild hypoglycemia, I'm sure, leads to defects in mental function (named the "keto-mind-fog"). This is not as unsignificant as websites would have you believe, such a mind-fog would be devastating for people whose jobs require high mental output.

2- A high-fat diet means chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, and HDL; bubbles of lipids and lipoproteins in your bloodstream, transporting the fuel to wherever it is needed. The problem is, a high LDL amount is linked and causative with vascular diseases like atherosclerosis. Conversely, a high HDL is linked with a reduction in such diseases. The function of HDL is to bring fats back to the liver to be metabolized during the fasting/hunger state. Does the (presumed) increase in HDL make up for the increase in LDL? Is it even safe to have so much lipids in the bloodstream to begin with? A high fat diet increases the expression of inflammatory mediators, which leads to all sorts of health problems, and also causes insulin resistance (the pivotal point of developing metabolic syndrome).

3- Besides supplements, you can only get a certain percentage of necessary micronutrients from a ketogenic diet, like minerals, folic acid, fat-burning phytochemicals like adiponectin. Also you consume a low amount of dietary fibre. Diets rich in fibre have been shown to reduce the risks of breast and colonic cancer. While red meat (especially the processed kind) has been shown to do the opposite. Is this trade-off for better physique/weight loss favorable?

4- Just making your portions smaller (calorie counting) combined with regular exercise should work with everyone (unless they have a medical condition - though I cannot think of any). Why should people try to adapt to such a drastic change in eating routine? It might be useful from a public health perspective to promote this in countries like the US where people drink sugary "soda"s to oblivion, but the Mediterranean diet provides a much better (though perhaps not as efficient) alternative in terms of overall nutrition. Wouldn't it be better to remove simple carbohydrates (like potato starch or simply sugar in the form of sweets, chocolate bars, etc.) from the diet in such countries?

Please don't get angry with me, I'm just trying to find out if there is something I've missed.

>Contrary to popular belief, consuming a higher amount of fat (about 35 per cent of energy) is associated with a lower risk of death compared to lower intakes. However, a diet high in carbohydrates (of more than 60 per cent of energy) is related to higher mortality, although not with the risk of cardiovascular disease.
>The research on dietary fats found that they are not associated with major cardiovascular disease, but higher fat consumption was associated with lower mortality; this was seen for all major types of fats (saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and mono unsaturated fats), with saturated fats being associated with lower stroke risk. The researchers point out that, while this may appear surprising to some, these new results are consistent with several observational studies and randomized controlled trials conducted in Western countries during the last two decades.
>The large new study, when viewed in the context of most previous studies, questions the conventional beliefs about dietary fats and clinical outcomes, says Mahshid Dehghan, the lead author for the study and an investigator at PHRI.

So I have finally hit that point in my life, (almost 30) where I want to finally try to get myself in shape. I'm not worried about bodybuilding to get massive gains. I just want to feel healthier and lose some of this chub I have.

What's the best tips someone could offer me to get me started and to stick with a routine.

I'd like to honestly lose about 20 to 25 pounds.

Totally get a scale and my fitness pal.

Micronutrition is the key to fight hunger. Either you get a balanced diet OR you take supplements.

I have protein powder with all that stuff added and it totally killed my hunger cravings. Naturally without any effort my first meal is at like 5 o clock. Every night 45 min before going to bed I take 2 scoops and the next day is easy.

Also a shake is perfect against hunger. So when I try to diet extreme and my hunger is killing me I just eat a protein shake and it's over.

Gym - body building feels awesome. I like the muscle stimulation feel, I like the gym I am there with 2 friends and no one wants to be the one who skips a training.

The first 6 months it's hella easy to build muscle and lose fat. While training seeing myself with a pump just motivates me more.

If you can't stick with a diet/gym - build discipline first.
