File 136008239168.jpg - (76.38KB , 1000x1000 , 100-whey-protein-optimum-nutrition.jpg )

I'm a novice (been doing cardio, small weights excersices and cutting calories for maybe one month) and I want to bulk some muscle and ensure my daily brotein intake.

I was wondering which one will I buy if I can get "whey protein" or "nitro tech"?? should I drink it before, between or after workout? will it help me even if I'm a newfag?

thanks /fit/

also if it matters I'm a girl and I know I won't build muscle as a man -actually it's a good thing-

yeah, what this guy said.
a can of tuna fish has the same protein as a serving of that whey powder as well as other nutrients. plus it won't give you gas or bloat you.

and i think the nitro tech stuff has a bunch of caffeine in it.
read the labels

But the benefit of whey is that it's in a powder form and is mostly just protein, so it absorbs into your body a lot faster than having to digest food. Hence, whey is the best for post-workout because the fast absorption allows your torn muscles to utilize the protein more efficiently/faster.

Anonymous 13/09/14(Sat)06:13 No. 12581


It's not just that it's in powder form and absorbed faster, it's also that the amino acid composition of whey makes it more insulinogenic than other proteins

I need help, /fit/.

I need to get rid of this fucking muffin top.

I've lived a mostly couch potato lifestyle up until now and my diet hasn't changed since I was a teenager (Fatty foods, sugar, etc) (20 years old now) and I was wondering what lifestyle/diet changes you recommend for losing this spare tire before it gets any worse.

Lately, I've been jogging in my basement for about 15 minutes everyday as well as doing 2 sets of 25 situps and 3 sets of 10 push ups a day, usually spread out over the course of the day.

What do?

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Learn it. Love it.

Combine it with a decent diet, nothing is going to shred that fat faster.

One arm stronger than the other. Anonymous 13/04/21(Sun)00:44 No. 11588 [Reply]

Greetings fellows!
So, I'm having the uncomfortable sensation that my left arm is getting stronger than my right one. This is particularly notable when I perform pushing exercises. For instance, I can't do as much push-ups with my right arm as I can with my left one, nor perform them with the same exquisiteness of technique. Also, my right triceps seems to be getting slightly bigger that my left one, even when it's weaker.
So, what can I do in order to balance my strength?
I'm right-handed by the way, and I'm into calisthenics, and have no money, or time, or the will to go to a gym or get machines.
I'm open to any suggestions you may have, or similar experiences you could share, and glad to read them.

The picture attached is unrelated, at least for the moment.

1) It's mostly in your head.
2) Your body isn't symmetrical.

To balance your strength? If you really want to do something about it, isn't the answer obvious? Work out your right arm more.

In addition to what >>11591 said:

1) Almost nobody has a symmetrical body. As long as your tricep/arm/whatever isn't freakishly larger on one side compared to the other, don't sweat it too much.

2) Make sure you exert equal force on both sides of body when doing exercises. It might help to take note of your arm/leg positions (i.e. make sure both hands are equidistant from center of body when doing pushups, otherwise one arm will be worked out more, leading to imbalance)

3) get back into balance by doing the same amount of work on each side. If you can only do 20 pushups with your right arm, then do only 20 pushups with your left arm as well. You may be capable of doing more pushups with your left arm, but do the same number for both sides to get back to a balance.

4)In conjunction with point 3, find out how many pushups/reps of whatever exercise you can do with the WEAKER side of your body, with PROPER FORM. You say that you can't do as many pushups with the right arm with the same "exquisiteness of technique", so find out how many pushups with the right hand you CAN do with the same exquisiteness of technique, and execute the instructions of point 3.

Anonymous 13/04/21(Sun)18:09 No. 11593

Thank you both very much. So that's what I'm gonna do I guess, go with the left one only as far as the right one can go. Or don't give fuck about it and keep working the same as always, I'll decide it latter.

My lips have endured a life of biting, nibbling licking and bad weather.

They are essentially calloused now. Without licking them, they have a kind of veneer that isn't what lips are meant to feel like. If I rip it away with my teeth, it feels...softer, like lips are meant to: briefly!

Moisturiser softens them briefly, but it stings. It's not meant to be put there.

Vasoline and all those lip balm products do nothing! Sometimes they provide a tad pain relief but that's probably due to the pain medication in some of them.

Am I destined to have fugly lips?

Tell me there is some other product out there that I haven't considered which can save me.

FPOB!!R1ZmxlMzD4 13/03/28(Thu)02:08 No. 11508

I've cared for my lips by using Aveeno moisturizing lotion, the kind with oatmeal in it. If I'm in windy weather, I slap on an additional layer of lip balm to prevent them from chapping.

My lips get dried in some places, and I start to pick at them, which inevitably results in tearing of some kind. I find that Aveeno oatmeal lotion doesn't hurt compared to ordinary lotion/moisturizers when I put it on.

So buy a bottle of this: http://img2.timeinc.net/instyle/images/2010/bbb06/aveeno-body-lotion-300.jpg

I've also found that Carmex stuff to be good for healing lips in my experience. You can just put a nice layer on before bed, and wake up with your lips healed. The cherry Carmex has a nice scent: http://www.scform.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Carmex-Tube.gif

apply as often as needed. And for the love of God, DON'T BITE, LICK, OR PICK AT YOUR LIPS. I know, it feels weird when you touch the dead skin on your lips, but picking at it only reopens the wounds and makes the callouses worse. I had a hard time with this, but just use some willpower, put on the lotion and/or carmex, and leave your lips be.

Anonymous 13/03/29(Fri)10:57 No. 11510

Your skin is highly adaptable. Callouses are basically your body defending you against infections by toughening the outer layer. Only way to stop callouses or thick skin is to reduce the amount of physical wear on that particular area.

i recently bought HGH oral spray and have used it for 2 weeks now and i was wondering if it will be a long time before i start noticing results. i have heard that it should take 90 days for full results. Anyone using HGH out there that can confirm or deny? i am currently doing the Insanity workout and am in need of more muscle mass. stay /fit/ 7chan!

if you mean insanity as in that cardio program...you're not gonna gain much mass. Insanity is designed for losing weight/fat.

If you want muscle mass, eat more carbs and protein, spend that HGH money on Creatine and Protein powder instead, ditch the Insanity, and start on a 5x5 routine.

Anonymous 13/05/03(Fri)02:56 No. 11656

nigga, HGH is a protein. I don't really see how could you absorb it as an oral spray. Don't put much hopes on that shit, and, as said in >>11653, go do some lifting if you wanna grow up.

Alright bros, I want to loose 30 pounds by September. Every diet I've ever tried has either failed or I failed. The only thing that worked was Jenny Craig three years ago and I lost 30 pounds before giving up and cheating, then I gained all my weight back. I'm 15, 5'9, 250 pounds. I play football and use my schools weight room Monday-Thursday when it's open. I have gained a lot of strength, but I haven't lost any fat. Any diets good for a budget too, cause I'm tight on money. I just want to get back down to 220, where I was at 2 years ago and look better for when school starts up again.

Any tips on diet and exercise would be great.

tl;dr version

Always give up on diets, use weight room for football Mon-Thurs, 15 5'9 250 pounds, 30% body fat, gained good strength in past 3 months from weight room, need tips to loose 30 pounds by September.

Garcinia Cambogia and fever blisters Anonymous 13/04/23(Tue)23:48 No. 11601 [Reply]

So first I have type 1 herpes which creates fever blisters on the corners of my mouth. about two weeks ago I started taking Healthy Solutions for Vitality Garcinia Cambogia. It has helped me lose some weight but I have had fever blisters ever since I started taking it. The First outbreak was the second day after I started taking it. a week later blisters healed up. Scabs have just finished healing and another set of blisters in another spot on my mouth. I have allergies during this time of year that makes my eyes itch badly. I transferred the virus to my right eye. I stopped taking them yesterday thinking there may be a correlation. Today it feel like I may have one in my urethra, (not uncommon for type 1 to flair up elsewhere) and urinating blood. My question for /FIT is does anyone either have or know of anyone taking Garcinia Cambogia that also has either form of herpes, and did they experience outbreaks while on it?

sup /fit/, starting boxing couple months ago.
Generally hear that lifting is bad for boxers. Is there a plan where I can lift? Based off what I read, I want to be doing very low reps high weight. Compound, for overall general strength. But I really have no plan and don't want to just dick around at the gym. I do want to lift to compliment my hobby. I've already started to slowly implement changes in my diet but any words of advice on that would help as well.

Anytips in general for boxing, thanks

Goal weight ~170lbs
Current weight ~178
Height 6'1
Body Fat Percentage: Idk, would guess around ~23%

Thanks, I actually joined a gym for all the technical stuff such as technique and there is a huge emphasis on explosiveness. There are 3 days, Monday is circuit day, Wed is a lighter circuit followed by slow technical workouts that emphasize technique or light sparring and thursdays are all sparring. So I really shouldn't be lifting on the days I don't go to the boxing sessions?

I was thinking just some Low rep, explosive compound lifts for strength. Right now I have Day 1: squats, front squats, dead lift and dips. Day 2: Bench, Over head press, Bent over rows and chin ups. I only do 5x3 as fast/explosive as I can.

Also I guess I lied about my weight. My bathroom scale must be broken, it says I'm 178ish but I tried one at my friends house at it says 188ish. I don't know my real weight.

Thanks again

No problem. It's nice to see others here, who do sports besides bodybuilding, too. I used to do karate/kickboxing/judo and a little bit of greco roman, before. I'm sadly not that active any more but I'm hoping to make time for some wrestling at least, come summer.

Anyways, I really recommend learning power cleans. They are super awesome for explosive legs. (which translates into faster dipping/ducking and more leg/hip power in your punches.)

If you don't have anyone to instruct you try to follow this video series:
That guy is very good at breaking it down.

As for regular bathroom scales they are notoriously unreliable. Anyway, weight doesn't really matter unless you plan to fight competitively.

11484 again.

I've actually managed to make room for Karate once a week. It's GoJu Ryu, so it's mostly point fighting and kata, but also physical conditioning, and occationally full contact sparring.

Come summer I'll definitely be looking into doing some wrestling/mma.

Just how bad is alcohol when working out? I'm on beer number 10 as i type this, but it's ok, because i'm also quitting tobacco right now.

I've gone a week without snus now, and i feel pretty good. The secret is having your stomach full at all times. Working out also helps, because it makes you more tired, and hungry. The backside is, beer is good as shit for filling me up, and making me tired.
So if possible, i'd like to know how much of an impact 6 liters of 3.5% beer would have on me after walking 10-15 km a day. Combined with some situps, pushups and what not.

Cool update bro! I'm still off the tobacco! Almost 2 months off i believe. No problems. At this point i dare say the drinking was actually good for me. Or maybe not, fuck the haters, i'm off tobacco.

And everything was better from then on. Except for my urge to smoke cigarettes every other week or so.

Anonymous 13/04/26(Fri)23:51 No. 11627

I happen to be drunk right now, so why not explain the grand old story of how i was able to quit.

As you might know, vast amounts o beer will cause a vast amount of nausea. Some of you will also know that tobacco will make the nausea even worse.
The very reason i first opted to not use tobacco, was because i felt ill to the core. I can't say this is a perfect method to quit tobacco, but it seems to have worked for me, even though i still have the craving for the old nicotine, i haven't actually used snus for 2 months. I also don't crave it the way i used to.

When i did, i would take two in the morning, to fill my lip up. That was standard. Then i would chain-snus throughout the day.

For the record, i have smoked 3 cigs since i started this thread. I feel like i'm in control, even though it is arguably worse to smoke cigarretes than it is to snus. But smoking is not a big thing for me, and it never has been, since it makes me feel sick even if i'm drunk. Another 2 months from now, and i'll probably be clean as a whistle. The main thing i guess, is that i don't have the craving to have a bunch of shit in my mouth all the time.

Look into Intermittent Fasting. Cut your calories. Do not do keto, it will destroy your organs. Use Google.

Anonymous 13/04/26(Fri)20:11 No. 11623

check out the DASH diet from the mayo clinic. it will help you get a reasonable diet the is appropriate for caloric intake. do not go keto or try to starve of your weight. you need to have a workout plan the burns about 1/8th to 1/3rd of your daily intake. mix up your workout to keep your body in a mild state of shock. being overly repetitive in your workout will prevent results. take you time. reduce your weight slowly and make it a lifestyle change instead of yo-yoing up and down with your weight. I started the DASH diet do to a heart condition. I dropped 65 lbs in the first 8 months. feeling great and never hungry.

DASH is mostly for prevention of strange diseases, such ad diabetes or hypertension, than for weight loss. You need drastic stuff for a quick loss, then get into the DASH (or perfect health) for maintenance.
Go keto.
