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.

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

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

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.

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.

Are the science backed fitness guys getting boring?

Schoenfeld, Helms, Israetel and their add on people like Steve Hall, all spouting science backed training advice.

Study after study comes out and they all have their own videos on it, but there is nothing new about how to train that hasn't been said over and over again.

Thoughts?

It's kinda simple in reality. More volume is better ONLY when it's not slowing the rate of progression on the mechanical tension aspect. for example, if A is progressing at 5% every week (strength wise) with 10 sets x week and we increase his volume to 20 x week and he is STILL progressing at at least 5% every week, then more volume here is better (at least in the SHORT TERM..). But if subject B progress 5% every week at 10 sets x week and at 20 he is just progressing slower or not at all, then lower volume is better. The key is the highest volume with which you can progress the most, and probably a little lower (for reducing injury risk and for increasing the time that occurs every time before approaching the overreaching state, before having to take a deload).

That's the thing, in every Schoenfeld study or whatever, the subjects, even with that high volume, are still increasing weight/reps every week on the exercises (for whatever reason, it can be more motivation, more rest, whatever), even in the last "45 sets to failure x week for quads" study! BUT if it isn't the same for you, then all you are doing is losing time doing junk volume, overreaching sooner and increasing injury risk tenfolds. If those subjects didn't manage to increase their strength, i can bet they would not realize that much hypertrophy, probably lot of edema, intracellular water, increased glycogen storages, etc.. (sarcoplasmic hypertrophy we could call it).

In practice, if a subject is not progressing in strenght (weight/reps/..), then all that high volume is useless. Much better a lower volume approach. It's always been the art of finding that sweet spot for that particular subject, there is no fucking perfect number of sets x week for everyone, it's impossible, there is no fucking need to study it again, and all the inter variability in muscle hypertrophy response during these such studies demonstrated this very clearly.

I think we're on the same page here.

Who the hell has time for 45 sets per week?

Good Afternoon Everyone.
As indicated by the title, I did in fact contract lyme disease close to 2 months ago. I have been on two separate antibiotics for the treatment of this ailment thus far and I am coming to the end of the second prescribed dosage. I was wondering if it is common for symptoms of lyme disease to persist after completing a dosage for a short period of time before it's completely gone. Thank you.

I started fitness 2 months ago. When i start i was 72kg and now i'm 69 kg. My body fat is too. It's approximately %20. I need to decrease that. My TDEE 2500 so i deficit that and make 2000 calorie. I also take my macros as posssible as i can. First 1.5 month i tried full body workout 3x12 but i can't progressive overload weights. So i changed program and started StrongLifts 5x5. Should i continue it or change it? I think i need to firstly fat loss but how. Is it good?

Your body fat is not that high, but your lack of muscle makes it look flabby. You have nothing to cut back to, so consider bulking VERY slowly and build a solid foundation of strength (what a your lifts, btw?). Keep doing 5x5 for a couple of months, but then I recommend changing to PHUL, since it has more volume. Also, if in that state you're having problems overloading you're either not eating right, undersleeping or your form is shit. At beginner stage your lifts should be going up in the 4-6 rep range pretty quickly.

Yohimbine HCL and a diet like leangains would have an effect. You can always check out their subreddit.

I'm being moved by my work for six months to an area that has no gym or exercise equipment. My luggage is limited, but I have a bar thing that I can hook into a doorframe for pull/chin ups that I'm taking with.

Is there a decent calisthenics program that I can follow that will help me continue building strength/muscle?

>>continue building strength/muscle

That depends on where you're at now. If you want to continue to increase your strength/hypertrophy, you're going to need to continue progressive overload. All bodyweight exercises involve lifting a percent of your bodyweight. If that's higher than the weight you can currently lift, then bodyweight will continue building strength and muscle. If not, it won't.

For an example, pullups done right involve 100% of your bodyweight. Imagine doing a lat pulldown at the gym with the weight equal to your bodyweight. (No, they're not exactly the same exercise, but they should be close enough for an estimate.) Can you do 3x8-12 of them? If yes, now try it with one arm. Can you still do it? If that's too heavy, then you can continue your gainz with a pullup bar by working to one arm pullups. If you're strong enough that it's no sweat, you'll have to find something heavier to continue to see growth.

You can always strap something heavy to yourself to increase the weight, of course. How doable that is will depend on the details of your situation. If you can already do a one-arm lat pulldown with weight equal to your bodyweight + a backpack filled with rocks, then you're pretty damn strong.

>>20878 cont.

To actually answer your question, I'm a fan of Convict Conditioning, although I'd add inverted rows to the program. I also like all of Al Kavadlo's work, but most programs will be fine as long as you keep in mind progressive overload.

The basic idea is to try to find a decent balance of exercises and increase the weight you're pushing/pulling by moving to harder variations and, where appropriate, moving from two-handed/legged exercises to one-handed/legged exercises.

There are basically two things to avoid if you're working for strength:

One is endurance focused programs. It doesn't matter how many pushups you can do in a row, your strength won't increase after about 3x20, maybe even before that. You have to move to a harder variation. More specifically, you have to move to a variation that involves pushing a higher percentage of your bodyweight or concentrating that bodyweight on a smaller number of muscles (I.e., working to one-arm pushups with elevated feet).

The other is programs that focus too much on gymnastic skills. Reddit's recommended routine is fine, for example, but its focus involves more gymnastic skills than the ones I mentioned. Those skills are super cool and benefit your over-all athleticism and ability to avoid injury, but anything that isn't going to increase the amount of weight you're moving isn't going to help increase strength or hypertrophy. /r/bodyweight's sacred text, Overcoming Gravity, is a great resource, but there's a reason it puts "gymnastics" before "strength," in the subtitle, and it's the same reason the author, Steven Low, looks the way he does despite being able to perform some impressive feats of gymnastic skill and athleticism.

As an example, ring dips are harder than parallel bar dips for most people, but the added difficulty comes from stabilization and coordination, not from pushing more weight. Also, silly things like one-finger pushups are pretty much just gimmicks.

You can try to master both the gymnastic skills and the strength work, but most people end up choosing which is more important to them and neglecting the other--some gymnastic skills are pretty much impossible if you're too swole.

One last thing about Convict Conditioning: There are more incremental progressions than anyone actually needs. Start with the hardest one you can do safely and feel free to skip some of the progressions that are just minor variations. Also, the progression standards are way too many reps. 3x8-12 is fine.

Basically, this is all just stuff you already know if you've been lifting. It's just that there are a surprisingly large number of lifters who think that muscles suddenly work differently when they're lifting your own body.
