QTDDOT - Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread

If I only care about hypertrophy, is it worth completely replacing squats with bulgarian split squats (with a lot more reps of course) ?

    Switching from 6 months SL -> ~11 months nsuns to PHUL
    Is it okay to just edleete machine stuff, because home gym, switch things up with barbell compounds but leave the sets/weights?

      Don't see why not, PHUL is meant to be adaptable

        So i did the upper body power day from PHUL with just barbell
        >5x5 close grip bench
        >4x5 bench
        >3x8 ohp
        >4x5 row
        >3x8 curls
        Felt weird? Nsuns has like 9 sets with varying weights/reps for each lift
        Somehow my version oh PHUL while time in the gym was way less, felt like i didn't do enough

      how does that even happen? just drop the dumbbell if you can't make it

        It's not so much the up and down movement, it is having good balance that is important with these. Once you work up to 180-200lbs of dbs on a single loaded knee, it is the lateral (side to side) movement that comes from trying to balance that is harmful.

      Might as well never bend your legs with any weight on your knees lest you fucking wanna snap them. I prefer to have massives bundles of helium filled balloons strapped to me so I can walk around at near weightlessness because otherwise I'll snap me knees. I heavily urge you anons to follow suit unless you want 90 years old knees. DONT EVER BEND YOUR KNEES WITHOUT ANTI-WEIGHT ASSISTANCE

    How much can a beginner train a week before overtraining and risking injury?
    Like can I go for a full PPLxPPL routine after only training for 3 months?

    I'm got into a training "high" and I'm antsy all day waiting for my job to be over and finally hit the gym. I started with a full body workout 3x a week, but even when I feel like I gave everything that day I didn't feel like I'm doing enough, so I started training every other day (4x week A, 3x week B) with an additional day for steady state cardio each week. I want to up this further but I don't know if I'm doing too much already

          just do main lifts and accessories later, if you're feeling too tired to finish main lifts then do the risk free accessories
          like you can't get injured doing dumbbell curls or lat raises, if you fail you fail just put down the dumbbells

            Ok

            also don't do retarded volume. if you can barely finish your lifting session everytime it has too much shit in it or you're not taking enough rest time between sets

            Yeah I also heard about "good bench" days where you feel like you can do 10 sets with higher weights than ever, but you actually can't and just rip your chest muscle

            That's the best answer but i meant more along the lines of things you'd add or change in your routine, diet etc. Things you wish you found out/started doing sooner.

            Ok, from my 3 months in:

            I'm 6'5 and weigh 195lbs, which isn't much by that body size but it's hard to get the 150g-190 of recommended protein intake each day. I just found out about red&yellow lentils, which have 24% proteins instead of 10% in rice, so I'm eating my chicken with lentils now.

            I also don't do the 3x15 sets/reps machine workout plan my gym gave me anymore. I do 3-4 sets doing clean reps with so much weight that I fatigue at around 45 seconds (which is normally 6-10 reps). I've read online that the recommended 8 reps from hypertrophy comes from 45 seconds of max load anyway, and personally, not focusing on counting reps allows me to focus more on execution and moving the right muscles

          Immediately switch to a plant based diet. High carbs. Nearly no fat. I struggled with my weight for decades and nothing has worked as well as this. I'd buy a chin-up bar and a dip station and stick to calisthenics.

      Better to go a bit slow until you are sure that you have the form correct. You sometimes feel the results from using bad form (sore rotator cuff, etc) the next day so the less you did that way the better.

      I was two months in basically training what ever recovered and winging it before I started doing pplpplx

      I've had 2 or 3 days where I was gassed light wieght was heavy very lethargic bad sleep, overtraining simply.
      Basically what I'm saying is you're ready,just make sure to get in alot of calories and carbs and when you feel over trained from hitting failure six days a week listen to your body and take the extra day off and don't beat yourself up about it david goggins is a dumb moron recovery is just as important as actually lifting the weights

      Sounds like you have the right mindset do the routine you have in mind to failure and when it becomes too much just relax do some active recovery and stretch god damn it ygmi

      But like the other posters said make sure your form is spot on film your lifts and watch them specifically movements that put pressure on your spine or rotator cuffs if your squat is turning into a good morning you need to deload and get it right

      Most guys Ive seen go 6 days a week right when they start out lose pace after a few weeks or a month. 3-4 days a week, hour sessions imo is very maintainable for everyone, longevity beats out intensity always imo.

      Some weeks Ill get in 5 or even 6 workouts with lifting and BJJ together, but I really aim for 2 solid lifting days, 2-3 days on the mats and maybe 2 conditioning workouts for 30 minutes and rest 2 solid days with active recovery at work (serving so walking all the time). its a lot now, but ive been training over 12 years at this point. I think at 32 it just feels like I need to be more mindful of getting the right nutrition and enough sleep which is challenging.

        To add, I personally dont think there is anything wrong with full recovery, laying down and resting. But sitting will always cause some detriments for long periods especially if you work a desk job. And if you ARE only training 3-4 days a week Id say the majority of your off days should include some stretching, yoga, light resistance work, walking or jogging, or some type of movement to allow yourself to work through the stress, as that progressive overload allows your body to adapt better. But I do try and take 1 day where I really just properly rest. Find what works for you though.

      when you started lifting, how did you get over any anxiety about going to the gym alone without a friend to spot for you or help out with form? like I used to lift back in high school and I've watched videos on how to squat and deadlift and shit but I'm still kinda nervous about signing up and going in and feeling like I have no clue what I'm doing

      all it takes is going once to overcome the fear. start light, use the safties. its all in your head.

      I’m a skeleton and started lifting maybe a month ago. I’ve gone from 10lb dumbbells up to 20 for biceps, 10 to 15 for wrists and forearms, and 5 to 10 for lats. I feel like I can see some more definition starting to develop, but it isn’t apparent to anyone else yet obviously. Am I making good progress IST?

      be patient. in 6 months time people will start to notice. make sure to eats lots and hit all your muscles.

      Is 5x5 still considered a good beginner routine? Links in sticky are dead.
      I'm 30, no prior lifting experience. Some back pain, zero stamina.

      Active recovery helps if you have shoulder doms do like three sets of light lat raises where every your doms may be contracting and stretching them under LIGHT weight and getting a touch of blood in there will speed up your Newby recovery time within 2 weeks the doms won't be near as bad

              1. Because your doing an exercise designed to fatigue triceps before an exercise which uses triceps as one of its main drivers. If anything you should do it the other way around, but you're still blasting your front delts which you'd need for OHP.
              2. If you think DL are a back hypertrophy exercise I really don't know what to tell you.
              3. Other programs have dedicated Leg days, yours has two exercises. Again, if you fail to see what the problem with that is, especially in the context that you think this is hypertrophy focused, I don't know where to start with you.
              4. See 3.

              I'm not even trying to shiggy your diggies here, I have legitimately never seen a program that is designed worse for what it wants to achieve. You'd be better of following a proven PPL routine with dedicated, structured days.

    I've been lifting regularly without missing a day (I lift one day and rest the next) for 3 months now, which is an accomplishment for me, a chronically depressed loser. I'm not looking for an ideal physique, just fighting my demons, working hard every day and not quitting is challenge enough for me. I've learnt to push through and work out even in those days where I'm deeply sad or even literally crying like a gay, which is often. I've also learnt nutrition so I've lost +20 kgs and gained some muscle. Nothing radical but I look significantly better.

    The thing is... lately I'm struggling in terms of strength. I make sure my nutrition is on point in terms of carbs and protein, but I've hit some kind of strange phase these last couple of weeks where the lifts feel heavier and I feel weaker each day. I don't want to quit but feeling weaker and weaker and not being able to perform to my maximum in the gym is getting to me. What's happening? How can I correct it? Thanks a lot anons, this board has already saved my life in many ways.

        Thanks, will do. The 1 day lifts / 1 day rest rhythm works pretty well for my brain so that's why I was resisting having a longer resting period. I'm afraid if I don't do it for a couple of days my fucking self-defeatism will kick in again... but I guess I'll just have to man up and find a new rhythm.

    when you started lifting, how did you get over any anxiety about going to the gym alone without a friend to spot for you or help out with form? like I used to lift back in high school and I've watched videos on how to squat and deadlift and shit but I'm still kinda nervous about signing up and going in and feeling like I have no clue what I'm doing

      Go in super late like 10-12 at night when most of the normies have left. Be straight up with the workers and tell them you don't know what you're doing and you want a tour of the facility. They may not have all the knowledge but ask them how to use certain equipment. Stick to machines in the beginning and then work your way from there. Use something easy like a treadmill in the beginning to become more comfortable with the gym atmosphere and etiquette.

          Yeah sure. Just be on the lookout for them trying to hook you into hiring one of their personal trainers (if they have some at that gym). Unless you want a personal trainer, then go for it.

      By going.
      You can start by going late in the evening or morning, to avoid having to wait on turns on whatever area you are going to occupy.
      But once you are happy with your form, stop giving a fuck about others and see if you can't be happy over the fact your form is immaculate. Unironically you want to go at crowded times, so you can observe other people using machines or free weights.

    I’m a skeleton and started lifting maybe a month ago. I’ve gone from 10lb dumbbells up to 20 for biceps, 10 to 15 for wrists and forearms, and 5 to 10 for lats. I feel like I can see some more definition starting to develop, but it isn’t apparent to anyone else yet obviously. Am I making good progress IST?

    What can I use instead here? I cut out milk and my acne (on my back, shoulders, and face) disappeared within a couple days. I'm trying to think of something that's just as cheap and efficient when it comes to sneaking in a little bit of extra calories. I was thinking peanuts (or some other kind of nut). Deenz would've been good, but at $1 per tin, an extra $7 per week is not ideal at all (I'm also poor).

    Does working out a different muscle group the next day still count as resting the previous group or does the stress not allow for good recovery?
    For example: let’s say yesterday was arm day and then today is leg day. If I do arm day the next day, would my arms have recovered from the work I’ve done or would the stress from leg day hinder my arm’s healing process?

      Yes, that counts as resting the previous group. Someone doing a 3-day split might do chest/triceps day 1, upper back/biceps day 2, legs day 3, rest day 4. Your arms don't need to recover from a leg workout.

      what are the best lifts for a golfer?

      A gilf swing is a full body movement so any routine that is compound movement oriented with barbell lifts mostly. Areas of extra importance are obliques, lats, and glutes. But its not a huge deal just do SS or PPL or whatever and add in wood choppers and a glute thing sometimes imo.

      Is the gut microbiome real? I've been told it's bro science even though it makes sense to me...

      Ya. You can develope infectious diarrhea when we kill off your normal gut flora with antibiotics and C difficile moves in. There is even a subset of neurology/GI that specialists in the gut-mind connection. These bacteria also produce nutrients and help digest shit. You don't have to do anything special though just eat healthy. Source: nurse

      I've been having issues with bicep curls whether dumbbell, barbell and ez bar, my forearms get too pumped and I have to stop at about 7-8 reps. How do I stop this?

      Your forearms are weak relative to the biceps. Make sure rest of program has adequate pulling (rows, pullups, deadlifts or some kinda bar holdy thing like RDL). This might just take time to normalize.

      I know your wrist are supposed to be straight while benching but anytime I try to keep them straight and have the bar in my lower palm I feel like its slipping and am constantly have to readjust my grip. Should I go a lower weight (currently 5x5 1pl8) or is there something im missing with my bench press grip?

      Don't worry about the wrist thing hold the bar comfortably for you. What helps me is intentionally death gripping it.

      No. All heads work in pretty much every lift you can only just shift emphasis around a bit. There's only so many ways to do an elbow extension (triceps) so it's kind of ridiculous there's 5 million variations. If you have an isolation on top of your normal pushes, which also work triceps, you're probably good.

    There's a really long story to this whole thing, but I'll spare you the details. I also know this is far from optimal, but I am curious.

    Starting date: 15th July 2022
    Starting weight: 139.6 kg / 306.4 lbs
    Starting bodyfat (unreliable): 46%

    Current weight: 125.5 kg / 275.5 lbs
    Current bodyfat (unreliable): 40%

    Workout: Some novice split I cobbled together that's fun. AxBxAxx / BxAxBxx
    A:
    3x5 Deadlift
    3x8 Military Press
    3x8 Rows
    3x8 Whatever I find fun, I mostly focus on Forearms, Calfs or Biceps.
    B:
    3x5 Squat
    3x8 Bench
    3x8 Lat pulldown
    3x8 Whatever I find fun, I mostly focus on Forearms, Calfs or Biceps.

    Initial 5 rep max DL: 100kg / 220lbs. Usually failure and short break after 3rd rep, massive cardio issues after 5th rep.
    Initial 5 rep max Squat: 50kg / 110lbs. Same issue as Deadlift
    Initial 8 rep max Bench: 40kg / 88lbs. Massive issues with last 2 reps. Gets worse with each set.

    Current 5 rep max DL: 115kg / 253lbs. No issues anymore.
    Current 5 rep max Squat: 60kg / 132lbs. Same as DL.
    Current 8 rep max Bench: 50kg / 110lbs. Less issues than before.

    Goal: Increase all lifts by 15%. Reduce bodyfat by 15% to 25%.
    Deadline: January 1st, 2023 (When normies make their new years promises, I want to have finished my first goal)

    With the given data, is my goal achievable?
    How much inferior is this whole thing when compared to bulking & cutting?
    Can I even expect any strength gains, or was it / is it all beginner gains?
    Will this at least maintain LBM, or will I inevitable start losing LBM?

      dude you should be aiming for a 5 kg increase on your squat and deads per week and 2.5kg minimum on your bench as well. increase your lifts by 15% in 3 months? the fuck. yes, it's harder to linearly progress while in a deficit but noob gains are incredibly powerful.

      >How much inferior is this whole thing when compared to bulking & cutting?
      you are cutting right now. if you just keep doing what you're doing now and don't eat less or move more over time your weight loss will stagnate. definitely pick up swimming or biking for cardio gains.
      >Can I even expect any strength gains
      yes. like the other anon said you should be able to push yourself harder in the gym as a beginner.
      >Will this at least maintain LBM, or will I inevitable start losing LBM?
      as long as you're lifting you should be fine. you haven't mentioned anything about diet so its hard to say. if your deficit is too steep or you don't get enough protein then yeah you could have some loss over time.

        TDEE: 2400~
        Daily calorie intake: 1500
        Daily deficit: 900~
        Daily protein intake: ~200g

        Nutrition overall is very high quality, mostly fish, cottage cheese, whey/casein protein and a fuckton of vegetables, potatoes, rice. Does this change anything in your opinion?

      I mean, this is basically the Reddit beginner routine where exercise order is switched, you exchange rows / lat pulldowns, you do some exercises 3x8, and add some random set at the end.

      I don't think the routine is bad, though I would put squat / deadlift at the end. However, I have one question: how on Earth do you have a 115kg deadlift while only having a 60kg squat?

    I have been working out for six months now, and have noticed no significant growth in any area other than my legs and shoulders, which were newbie gains. I experience no apparent hypertrophy or DOMS, nor have I ever reached failure unless I do push-ups. I’m still the same pudgy DYEL I was when I started.
    The routine I have followed, as prescribed by a PT I took two months of classes with, is as follows:
    Core:
    >2 min plank x2
    >16 straight-leg leg raises x2
    Main routine ( free weights only, circuit, incremented dumbbell weight (25, 30, 40, 45) with a decreasing number of reps for each increase in weight):
    >Row x2 + deadlift x7/6/5/4
    >Dumbbell press x20/15/12/10
    >BGSS + OHP x10/8/6/5
    I have done this routine three times a week for the past four months and it has not yielded any noticeable results. Is there something I am doing wrong? Also, would this degree of comparative inexperience mean that one of the recommended beginner programs such as SL 5x5 work for me?
    Some additional personal stats;
    Male, 5’5, last I checked (2 months ago) I weighed 195 at 28% body fat.
    Pic rel, I look exactly identical to this except clean-shaven.

      Forgot to mention that I have seen no significant strength gains either, but I just assume that’s because I’m too much of a pussy to advance in weight. The fear, primarily, is that I will not be able to complete full ROM with heavier weights, so my form will deteriorate until I have no idea what I’m doing.

    So I'm going to get my T levels tested for the first time. They offer either
    >Testosterone Free/Total + SHBG
    >Testosterone Total
    >Testosterone Total by LCMS
    Which of these is the best to get? I hear LCMS is more accurate but was under the impression it's best to get free test done too.
    While I'm at it are there any other things in blood I should get tested too? They offer everything you could think of...

    I'm 5'11 and 171 lbs -- so I'm not terribly fat or anything. I eat really healthy, but I don't exercise at all.
    I live alone in a 3 bedroom house, and I want to start doing farmer's walks using two 40 lbs dumbbells. If I walk once around the house with them right now, then back to where I began, it definitely strains my arms.
    What if I just did this 4 times a day, while listening to a news podcast.

    So I've been indirectly fasting for a long time due too being a poorfag so I'm already at one meal a day, now I'm paying attention to calorie intake and trying to cut it down. But my question is how do I gain enough protein? my one meal today only contained 58.85 grams of it 100 grams less then my goal. I went and bought some of those Atkins protein bar which I'm also not to sure if those are the best choice either but those only contain 15grams and I read it best to not eat more then one.

        if less than 4 hours, do not engage in excercise at all. you risk fainting

      you are probably using the wrong muscles during hip thrusts. try doing them without weight and make sure to squeeze your glutes even before lifting your hips and just keeping that squeeze through the whole set, do them sloooow. do 3 sets of 20(contracted glutes at all times) right now and youll see that you dont need any added weight(until you can do these with ease). your arse will burn.

          I know IST hates youtube fitness cunts, but alan thrall said it best when he said that cutting when don't have a solid foundation of muscle in the first place is almost pointless.
          I'll acknowledge that I'm a fat fuck and I should lose weight to look more pleasing, but you're in a different boat from me. You're not overweight for your height.
          If you cut down from 80kg, you'll probably become a lanklet. I'd just keep maintenance or something if your bodyfat is really bothering you.
          But if you do bulk, you'll look better with a bit more weight on, muscle+fat than you would just being straight out africa tier emaciated.

    I measured my weight today and I am barely in the normal BMI range at 24.5. However I also did strength exercises during the whole process and built some muscle during the process.

    My question is how accurate is the BMI for me? Is it still a good guideline?

    Have a question about bulgarian split squats.
    I'm doing 4 sets 8 reps with 10kg dumbbell in hand (mostly to balance)
    But here's the problem. I have no problem doing them with my left leg. But it's significantly harder with my right leg. Harder to balance, harder to do reps.

    Why my right leg is so weak?

      Lifetime of standing and doing movements 60% left leg and 40% right leg leads to what you're describing.
      Did you play any sports as a child often that required more stabilized movements based around your left leg?

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        I have not. Can't think of anything what I did that made my left leg stronger than right.
        I assume with time their strength will equalize?
        Now that I think about it when I was running a month or so ago I had knee pain in my right leg too. Can this be related?

        • 1 month ago

          Yeah with time they'll equalize in strength, but coordination will potentially always have a degree of handedness to it, just like your hands do.

    For the first time in my life I'm trying to bulk up.

    What's the point of cardio aesthetically if I'm trying to get big? Obviously it's still good for heart health and endurance, but really can't I just hit my macros and not do 10k steps/jog etc because they're really just calorie burners?

    Thinking of replacing jogs with the stairmaster to tone some muscle, but even that seems like a waste of time when I could be squatting or something instead

      Cardio lets you work harder on the strength training parts of your workout. My squat went up when I started doing 10 minutes of cardio after every weightlifting session because I had the energy to push myself

    My adjustable dumbbells only go up to 30lbs each, so I worked on upping my reps after reaching the max weight. I do 5x15 biceps curls for example right now, but maybe it's getting a bit too high on the reps, any way I can DIY add extra weight to them without buying more plates?

      Sure you can make some nice gains with that, get a pullup bar or some rings too. For squats you can do one legged variants to effectively double the weight since 100lbs isnt a lot even for a total beginner.

        A pullup bar would probably destroy my shitty doorframes. What do you mean by rings?
        For squats, I was planning to have to anyway; when I lived near friends, I could give even a ~200 pound guy a piggyback ride with minimal difficulty, one of the few things I've been remotely proud of physically.

          You can drill the bar to the walls, others stay in place just by pressure as well but might ruin the paint. Rings are more versatile though.

    i noticed while deadlifting that i get in the what i think is the correct position, i slightly squat down before i lift the bar but then i dont use my legs but my arched back instead to lift it. how the fuck do i fix this?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      the muscles that contribute in the deadlift are heavily dependent on your body proportions. if the weight is challenging, you're not going to budge it unless your hips are high enough that there is significant tension in your hamstrings. this is why you'll see a lot of peoples hips shoot up as the bar breaks the floor.

      so if you have leverages that will result in having a wide knee angle in the starting position in order to have your hips at the optimal height, you will naturally have less quad activation and you will be more back and hamstring dominant.

      that's perfectly fine so if you're properly bracing and maintaining spinal position theres nothing to worry about. target your posterior chain with deadlifts and focus on your quads with high bar squats, leg press etc.

    I can't figure out how to do dips without discomfort in my shoulders. I don't let my elbow angle go past 90 degrees but it still feels off in my shoulders. How do I position my torso and legs to put as little focus as possible on shoulders? I don't care about hitting chest on dips so chest engagement isnt important to me.

      Contract your back to allow full rom of the chest, I make my upper torso (chest) go from perpendicular to the floor to parallel on the way down, then follow that same movement path on the way up. Worked wonders for me. It should feel like a very declined bench press

      I refuse to believe someone is this dumb, but if you want to get into the metaphysical:

      You can never lift 100% of your weight since that would include your gravitational pull. You can't lift yourself into mid-air without having something to prop yourself up or it's just a quick moment (jumping). Dips and pull ups are the maximum amount of weight of our own bodies we can lift, since it's exerting the maximum amount of gravitational pull possible our bodies contain.
