I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I don't know a lot of fitness. I was just wondering what type of muscle is built doing exercises that use your own weight.
The type of exercises that use unusual positions like planches and holds similar to the one in the picture, but using the ends of parallel bars. would this be creating dense muscle?
Burpees, bodyweight squats.
Also, go ham and try out different ways of pushups:
Crunches and bicycle crunches are some variations on situps. That way you can hit your upper abs and obliques more. Someone told me situps have some unnecessary movements in it that make it less effective than crunches. Not sure about that.
Dragon flags for lower abs
Get into a Gravitron. When at full speed, do some sit-ups. Roll around, and do some push-ups. Then stand up, and proceed to do a few squats, arms outstretched in front of you. That should do.
Hand stands, for support muscles and balance.
Hand stand pushups if you can do them.
Yoga leg lifts. (Lifting legs and lower body while supporting with upper back and lower arms)
Horse stance/ wall sitting(?). Add light weights held in hands as you advance. (like, water bottles or whatever)
Karate-water-jar style lifting for fingers/lower arms. Technically not bodyweight but adding it since you can do it with random items from home.
A year or so ago, a blood analysis showed I had high cholesterol.
Doctor says I should stop eating two eggs a day.
Right now I eat more vegetables, less meat and three eggs a week.
I took a new analysis and my cholesterol levels rose.
What can I do, /fit/ ?
(and there may be a period post-depletion where it is still useful to restrict carbs)
Eat your eggs but less saturated fats. High cholesterol in the diet doesn't necessarily raise yours.
Despite what doctors might say there is not enough research known on exactly what impacts cholesterol levels in the blood. Just eat a normal healthy died and don't worry.

let's talk running
i recently started and got up to 5k every other day. i still have to slow to a walk for a few minutes in the middle to catch my breath.
is it good to run every day? lately i have been doing every other day and trying to increase the distance a little each time.
so /fit/, talk to me about running.
i also dropped 5kg with running and cutting dairy out of my diet. another 5kg will drop me to my ideal weight!
>It is really bad for your joints, particularly your knees.
That's what hills are for, run up, walk down. If you're smart you'll take the long route up and the short one down.
i have heard contrary opinions on the joint issue.
i have heard that running helps strengthen joints and i have heard that running damages joints.
is this dependent on where you are running (up and sown hills, on a treadmill, on the beach, etc.)?
i don't personally notice any joint pain from running, but i'm not overweight, don't run on concrete, and don't run incredible amounts.
The main issue of stress on joints comes from people who run exclusively on hard surfaces. You should always run on grass when possible.
This blog has a lot of good insight
i beg to differ.
This retard doesn't even know how to spam his own shit in from an unbiased perspective.

Broscience experts: DON'T EAT CARBS AFTER 6PM
Today I completed 2 sets of 10 full pull-ups for the first time in my life. I know that for many in here that wouldn't mean shit, but 3 years and 70 pounds of fat ago, when I first started lurking here, that seemed totally impossible.
So thank you very much /fit/.
I remember when I first went in the gym. I could do four pullups. Now I can do sets of 12 with ease. Right now I'm doing sets with a 45lb plate. Feels good man. GJ OP
The funny thing is I couldn't perform a single one when I first started. Now the other day I could do this ones, hanging from a staircase on my building, under the rain. Felt really good.
I don't use /fit/ that much so I hope this is appropriate. It's quite simple-- Just looking for simple advice or experiences relating to quitting tobacco and alcohol.
I regret to admit it but I am addicted to both of these toxic substances and want nothing more than to kick my bad habits before they have a chance to kick me into the grave.
I have found that it is usually the most basic and simple pieces of advice which I sometimes gain the most from so if you have any, I definitely appreciate it!
P.S. I'm 33, smoke moderately, and binge drink about 3 times a week (12+ drinks). So yes, I am an alcoholic to make it clear. I went to AA and decided it was a stupid religious cult, haven't been back since.
The brain can overcome ANYTHING. Your superego is far more powerful than your id or your ego.
When you smoke and drink you're letting your id and ego take over.
Could be worth checking out Alan Carr's stop smoking books.
You rack disciprine. Go learn a martial art, and then just quit smoking. Once you learn how to make yourself do something whether you like it or not, you'll be able to make yourself do anything. Strength of will is a very underrated skill.
Can a person die of DOMS? I think I might be dying.
I personally think you're lying.
That's just the feeling of living, which you're unaccustomed to.
you're cute for a bodybuilding tranny.
After running, my shins hurt and keep hurting for a couple days.
I have tried not running for a couple weeks and I'm okay, but if I try to run the pain comes back in less than a week.
What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it, /fit/?

>>10344 your key word describes something like thrombosis. I think it is more this:
inflammation of the Periosteum
It can be cooled down. I have hope that this helps. But i am not realy convinced. So i am doing a self test.
Invest in some orthotics for your shoes. It may be $100 but its better than abusing your shins.
I'm basically between ottemode and atheletic. I don't like the look of abs, cause, frankly, they are intuitively disgusting. They are just culturally appreciated and blatantly weird when pronounced. SO, I want to remain flat abbed, but my ribs are qiute pronounecd. I basicaly have a bit of a curve out, but it's rather nice looking. If I get fatter I will look skinny fat, if I get skinnier, I will be too skinny.
You might want to see a psychiastrist, body dysmorphia is a common problem, especially these days where we are bombarded daily with "ideal bodies" in magazines, TV and on the internets.
