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.

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.

Anonymous 18/04/21(Sat)08:28 No. 20898

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.
