Greetings, /fit/
Tomorrow is the first day of June, and the beginning of the summer months (yes, I know, summer starts at the 21st, never mind that for now)
I want to get rid of some extra weight I've been keeping on me in the next three months, until the end of August.

My vital statistics are:
Age - 22 yrs
Height - 185 cm (~6')
Weight - 91 kg (200 lbs)
BMI - 26.6 (Overweight)
Basal metabolic rate - ~2000 kcal/day

I've had a checkup last month, it seems my blood values are great. No hypertension, heart problems, or cholesterol. My fitness level was "normal". So basically, this is mostly about preventive measures, and of course, cosmetic reasons. The exercise also helps keep my mood up, and perform better mentally, and regulates my sleep.

I'll be cutting down on calories and engaging in exercise 3-5 days a week. I enjoy running quite a bit, and I have a treadmill and an exercise bike available for use.
Sadly I also have previous sporting injuries which flare up if I force my knees too much.

Instead of running, you should either use an elliptical machine or walk on a treadmill at a steep incline(without holding on). Both are better on your knees and keep your metabolism burning longer after your workout.

Anonymous 15/08/01(Sat)10:20 No. 18406

More than a 500kcal deficit is dangerous, and it sounds like your exercise plan is cardio-only.

Your body will go into starvation mode, and the lack of strength training means you will be losing muscle mass.

I make the prediction now that you're going to gain all of the weight back and you won't understand why. Not eating enough is dangerous for you.

Anonymous 15/08/23(Sun)13:28 No. 18463

This so very much. Losing weight is easy, not gaining it back is hard. Slow and steady does indeed win the race.

Personal annecdotal evidence: Gone from ~90Kg to 85-83Kg range (depending on hydration) in 6 months, and still slowly ticking downwards. I expect to reach my target weight of 80-77Kg before christmas if I don't cheat too much. (ultimate goal is to be able to dehydrate to 75Kg- for amateur "light" MMA matches).

My "diet" is basically reasonably healthy food and as little refined sugar as possible, without being fanatic about it:

For breakfast/lunch/supper - two slices of unsweetened full grain bread with solid nutritional toppings like cheese, ham, eggs, salmon, and as much vegetables (letuce, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots etc) as I like. Small helpings of fruit and a glass of milk to wash it down. Sometimes just oatmeal with milk and a dash of jam.

Dinner: Cook from scratch with as unprocessed food as possible. Solid staples like pork-chops, homemade meatballs, poached fish, etc. Meat/fish & potatoes essentially. Pasta in reasonable amounts is okay. Modest helpings and as much salad as I need to be full.

Treats: One small cookie or small piece of dark chocolate with my afternoon coffee. Small helpings of cakes/desserts if I'm visiting someone else.

Mind, this is coupled with biking to work (5km each way), and doing MMA/BJJ 3-4 times a week. No heavy lifting at the moment due to injured thumb, but will add powercleans and squatz once I'm able to.

As german science proves shape and form and conscious existence and a world is all a lie.

Perhaps it's time to start lieing your way fit.

• Fake history
• Made up terms systems and effort history training
• Fake photo's of you training with your head put on fit bodies
• Spreading the lie
• Fake nutrition profile and bloodwork diagrams
• Fake training environments and history

right now i weigh around 125 pounds and i'm trying to gain weight. i make my own lunch and dinner from stuff i buy in bulk from costco, each meal usually being around a half cup (precooked) white/brown rice mixture in 3:1 ratio, a little over 1/4 pounds chicken breast (precooked), and around one cup mixed vegetables. i don't have time for breakfast so i just eat some sort of protein/granola bar. i eat out a few times a week. other than some fruit after dinner, i don't eat any snacks.

by my calculation, my daily caloric intake is around 1600, with around 60-65g protein. i think that's enough protein for muscle gain at my current weight, but i feel like i'm not getting enough calories, although i'm not really sure how much i should be getting. the number i keep seeing is 2000 but i realize that depends on activity level. at work i mostly sit around, with some standing and walking and very occasional heavy lifting. i do 15-20 minutes of medium-high intensity calisthenics every day.

thoughts? suggestions? my plan right now is to get a bulk bag of walnuts to snack on and try to push the calories up closer to 2000

As far as I know, the most reliable way to ascertain your daily energy expenditure is to follow a strict diet for a period of time, simultaneously weighing yourself regularly.

Gender, weight, age, and activity level all obviously play a role, but individual considerations are king. If you wanna gain weight, why not just increase your portions?

Anonymous 15/02/04(Wed)03:14 No. 17350

i don't have the appetite to eat larger portions, unless i sit there for like an hour forcing it down.

Anonymous 15/06/02(Tue)02:47 No. 18263

Lift weights, and your appetite will increase. (And once your appetite increases, you can lift even more weights, which will increase your appetite even more!)

Also, you don't need to start eating a ton of food all at once. If you gradually change your diet, it will give your body time to adapt.

Strength vs stamina training Anonymous 15/05/19(Tue)04:36 No. 18222 [Reply]

File 143200299050.png - (2.24MB , 1052x1420 , useII.png )

So, I've been into calisthenics for some years now, and have achieved a fair amount of muscle mass and can perform some complex exercises like one arm push-ups and hanging leg raises and stuff like that. I've been mostly following a 6x6 program, in an attempt to get strength above all else.
Recently, I started taking martial art lessons, Pa-Kua for more information. In there we do a lot of calls, but mostly focused into stamina. Countless repetitions of push ups and sit ups and body-weight squats, and a little running too. This is almost as difficult for me as for any of my untrained partners, and many times I can't even complete the full set before failing.
So here's my worry: am I going to lose my long achieved strength and hypertrophy if I continue following this new routine? And if so, how can I stop that from happening?
Thanks in advance guys.

You'll probably lose some of the hypertrophy if you stop the strength training, but you'll still be toned; just not "ripped".
You can extend your workout sessions to minimize the loss, but it will take up quite a bit of time and energy.

It has to do with your personal buildup of muscles as well. If you have a propensity for strength (sounds like it), you won't be as successful in stamina/endurance. (for me it's the opposite, I can run for hours, but don't ask me to sprint for my life) It has to do with fast and slow twitch muscle fibres (early tiring and stronger versus long winded and weaker).

See image for an extreme example.

Sup guys.
So, a friend of mine is starting this freeletics routine and inviting me to join him.
I've been into calisthenics for years now actually and know a bit about them, following mostly Convict Conditioning and 666. I don't know anything about this new site and what does it have to offer, but I'm generally speaking the kind of guy that avoids all what's new (like this current crossfit madness and shit on the like) and I wan't to know a bit of your thoughts and experiences about this method if you have any to share before I jump into it.

Sup /fit/
I'm a lazy faggot but finally decided to join a gym, where I'm trying to use a range of machines blah blah. I'm also walking a bit, sometimes jogging, and filling in on the odd game of futsal with some friends. So far I've been wearing my Vans for all of this, and it sucks even harder than I do. I only really want to buy one pair of shoes to cover all my bases, are cross trainers the way to go? Thanks!

Anonymous 15/02/05(Thu)14:35 No. 17368

PS, I won't be doing any big lifting as that's not a look I'm into, but some weights are involved.

Anonymous 15/02/05(Thu)16:28 No. 17369

if its mostly cardio some normal cross trainers will cover you. if you start lifting you will need something flat and stable.

fyooeez Plans for Nigel 15/05/06(Wed)04:49 No. 18192

Feiyue's are excellent shoes and cheap as dirt.
Parkour guys have been wearing them for years, chinese kids even longer than that. My personal favorite.

Chuck taylors are supposed to be the best show for powerlifting, and not bad elsewhere.

'Barefoot' type shoes like vivo's or innov8's are super comfortable,but I haven't yet found any that I can really run around in.

hey people,
so I've never posted on here but I thought maybe you guys would have an idea of what I"m looking for. I haven't been able to find any reliable info about the amount of calories burned at my job. Some say 200 an hour, some say 400 for six hours.
I work at a grocery store as a clerk, so I lift boxes (~10 - 50lbs) of product onto carts, push these carts, and then bring them to shelves and stock.

I generally work 8 hour shifts - breaks = ~7 hours of work generally.

Any ideas would be helpful, thanks!

usually people at office jobs get FAT. If they're not getting fat, they're getting heavy. You know how much donuts & coffee the typical office goes through? CRAPLOADS

I'd say something like fifty calories over your baseline metabolism. Unless you break a sweat light work doesn't add up

Anonymous 15/05/01(Fri)08:58 No. 18172

you must actually exert yourself to rise above your daily average/maintenance calories
