obstructive sleep question raefdoesser!WBRXcNtpf. 19/01/09(Wed)07:05 No. 25441 [Reply]

File 154701390416.jpg - (3.09KB , 98x98 , 150745223354.jpg )

lets say I'm 178 pounds at 5'6" (or 80kg and 167 cm in lolmetric). been strength training for three years and am 18-20bf%. most on ass and midsection.

showing novel signs of obstructive sleep apnea (no sleep study to confirm): 2 immediate male relatives have it including my father.

should i keep training to reach my natural drug-free genetic potential for another 8 years (i.e. 155# and lean) if indeed it is OSA and or are there too many individual factors to generalize?

tripcodes encouraged.

If you possibly have sleep apnea go to the doctor and get checked, then make an educated decision on what you need to do next.

What happened to the request thread? I was here a lil over a month ago, and there were thousands of posts with a ton of programs available...now all I see is 59 posts. Am I doing something wrong, or are they gone?

The thread had previously been purged of any post that did not contain a link, which reduced the thread count. However there were so many dead links that it would be impossible to check each one. So an admin made a post stating that he would delete anything but the 50 most recent posts and that he was giving people who had shared anything of value time to save it then reshare it after the delete. After that he cleaned out the thread.

TL;DR it was too big to mod so this is a fresh start.

Hey, everyone! As requested by my psychologist, I'll start going to a gym in order to gain some muscle and distract myself a bit from computers (and hopefully cure my depression).

If the prices are worth it, I'm signing up on a gym near my house. I've been told that I'll first make a test so that I can get accompanied by a trainer so they can "see my current capacities". I was wondering, how can I start? Should I start by lifting up some weights? Should I run a bit on a treadmill?

Thank you.

Anonymous 18/11/26(Mon)21:21 No. 24554

It's hard to know without knowing your physique. But remember that to start off by getting your blood pumping. Cardio, treadmill, exercise bike, etc. Also if you want to do weights remember that weights are used to work your muscles through repetition, so don't strain yourself by putting too much weight on. Besides that, don't be self-conscious and make yourself comfortable and have fun.

Anonymous 19/01/05(Sat)02:26 No. 25314

They will probably have you do some generic exercises and note it down and they will tell you about any hazards, not to lift too much weight etc.

Some light cardio is good.

It's good if you pick a program, at least initially, so you have a plan of what to do.

Gl man, remember it's all about consistency.

build explosiveness thru strength training cuz that will help with vertical jump greatly and power exertion. I'd recommend box squats (watch Louie Simmons video on this, the greatest powerlifting adnd strength coach of all time) and pause training like pause squats, pendlay rows, pause bench, dead bench,paused overhead press, etc.)

Hey bros, how are you doing today?
I've been working out these past 5 months, and noticed some results. Even though I was following a diet (about 2250kcal per day, I'm male, 18 years old, 6'0/1,85cm and about 215lbs/97kg) I didn't lose much fat, and builded up some muscles. I believe that my BF% is about 23%. My body type is probably Endomorph, since it's pretty hard for me to lose fat but kinda easy to build muscles.
My question is: Should I focus on getting muscles first (I don't really care about getting ripped, and I got the feeling that I will look like a really if I lose all my fat based on my actual muscle mass, and considering that part of this muscle mass will vanish too) or to lose body fat?

Keep in mind that some of us have seen this post and aren't replying because you really should figure this out yourself.

Anonymous 18/11/30(Fri)13:48 No. 24634

I know right? Someone trying to get fit goes to a board called /fit/ - Fitness & Health, which is full of people who work out, and asking for advice. I don't even get what he was thinking.

Anonymous 18/12/25(Tue)20:26 No. 25004

i have similar stats to u but been lifting for 2 years now, I'd recommend you reach intermediate status (225 bench, 315 squat, 405 deadlift) and then begin a cut. Use ur novice gains to the full advantage, when linear progression stalls proceed with a cut or even maintenance. I have reach intermediate status and am now cutting because I have enough muscle mass to support the look, chances are you wont have enough muscle mass to get the Hollywood ripped physique because u have only been lifting for 5 months

I used to come here a lot around 10 years ago, before 4chan had a fit board, and I remember ZC. It saddens me to see that he's passed, but after searching around on google for a while, I couldn't seem to find any information on him? What happened? Who was he?

What's the best way to lose weight with minimal exercise? I just really don't want muscle to be honest. I want to get back to being a thin twig. So I can wear my tight clothes again. I'm 155 wanting to get back down to about 115 - 120. Also I'm 5'5" if that information is useful.

can some one redpill me on protein powders ?
i'm 230 and 5.9 i've been going to the gym for like 4 months now , i've noticed the noob gains and now i can't wait to grow more , my diet was godlike i spent most of my money on good food but in the next couple of months i'm going to have to scale it down a bit now should i get a protein powder ? and if so what kind should i buy ?

Anonymous 18/10/06(Sat)13:23 No. 23600

if you get enough protein already (you'll probably need about 150g a day) then don't bother, but if you need to either easily pack in calories, or easily cut out calories by replacing meals with shakes check out a cheap brand thats not packed with too much shit like myprotein, dont fall for any of the gay marketing ploys, keep up what you're already doing

Anonymous 18/10/12(Fri)17:15 No. 23722

Casein or whey protein. Myprotein is good quality and cheap, nearly always has a deal on. Youll get more protein for your money if you go with powder but food is always better if you can get your protein from that

Anonymous 18/10/19(Fri)19:14 No. 23866

It's just a convenient method to get more protein in your diet. I'd be careful when buying protein powders however, some brands are known to have heavy metals such as Muscle Milk, while others are known to contain filler such as Musclepharm. It's generally recommended to buy safe brands such as MyProtein and Optimum Nutrition.

I am fan of Manchester United and sometimes visit games of my lovely club on Old Trafford stadium. I am going to visit tomorrow's game with Valencia. Now I am in Manchester city, I have already booked cheap hotel near legendary stadium - Trafford Hall Hotel. I found a lot of useful info about Old Trafford stadium and Manchester city on https://worldstadia.com/old-trafford.html Such kind of information can be interesting for tourists.

I just want to know about the reviews of mountain dog training programs ? Is it good ? Can a woman do his programs ? I heard his programs are all geared to those who are not Natty ? Is it true ?

Tdlsu777 Anonymous 18/10/05(Fri)05:49 No. 23570

Training programs are for women or men and Natty not Natty. All of this is determined by volume and frequency.

John's programs are great. He has a women focused program. I suggest you visit the request thread above and find some to download and look over yourself.
