Can jefferson DL replace conventional? If no, why?

    It's like a trap bar deadlift, way less stress on your lower back. Just better leverage and less muscle used
    I guess it can replace it but it won't be as effect as the conventional

            Conservatards have been losing without pause and non-stop since the invention of the wheel. A conservative of the 1920's would consider a conservative of the 1940's a liberal. A conservative of the 1940's would consider a conservative of the 1960's a liberal. A conservative of the 1960's would consider a conservative of the 1980's a liberal. And so on, ad infinitum, because the only constant in conservative ideology, the only thing they manage to actually conserve, is their unending and unrelentless losing streak.

                The majority of states in the country still allow abortions. Securing gun rights and preventing federally backed abortion pales in comparison to the tremendous change progressives have enacted in the past 100 years.

          Is all about preference, before starting my bulk I want to cut down to at least 15%, you will look like shit, weak and tiny but is a phase I'm willing to go on because I really dislike seeing myself as fat.
          The other way is to bulk straight away and cut (slowly, you don't want to lose muscle mass) once you have a decent "base" of muscles, and just for being super clear this is most suggested route.

          Again, is all personal preference, you WILL NOT look as you wish either after a cut or a bulk.

          The only exceptions are obese fatlords that of course need to cut first

        Bulking is for retards who need quick bursts of progress to get a dopamine hit. The inevitable loss of muscle mass during a cut would probably lead to an average increase in muscle mass equal to steady progress at a healthy weight.

          Can someone help me here. I am basically autistic.

          So I have been alone for years but got in contact with some old buddies. I finally have somewhat of a social circle thing going on. We all go to the bar and they notice I lift and say they want to go to the gym too.

          They have been going for 5-6 months now but they're lifting like shit. Their form is awful and they are ego lifting wanting to keep up with me.

          Do I correct them or leave them to keep fucking up until they lose interest ?
          Would you correct them or just let them do their own thing ?

          I'd advice them to use proper form and help them with it if they need it. Training with bad form and ego lifting can lead to serious injuries after all.

          I've also got a question of my own:
          Can you recommend any dumbbell or bodyweight exercises to replace pull-ups? I don't have access to a bar sadly.

          • 3 weeks ago

            you have a couple options. my opinion, you shouldnt force the issue too much, they are likely going for the social aspect as much as the gains aspect. they can always lift without you.

            you can say nothing and wait for them to injure themselves, then offer help. theyll be more likely to listen then since they touched the hot stove. then just be like, hey you should bring the weight down a bit and make sure your form is really good so you dont reinjure. offer to check their form on big lifts.
            you could also just say hey, i was hoping i could give you some pointers if you are interested. if they arent, just dont say anything. if they are explain the point of form and how lifting less can be preferable for muscle and strength gain.

            either way, men are gonna be men, so theyre probably going to be stubborn as shit and not want to listen. in which case, fuck it, its not your spine.

            Thank you Anon's.

            > you could also just say hey, i was hoping i could give you some pointers if you are interested. if they arent, just dont say anything.

            I did try this and got a 'Yeah, I know' response like their ego was hurt. I will leave them too it until they injure themselves and advise from there.

        People ate foods high in saturated fat and cholesterol for centuries (eggs, red meat, shellfish) and never had heart issue epidemics.

This is the same situation with the sugar lie and the lies about meat and dairy told today. garden gnomes hate when people are healthy.

      heavy curls can aggravate a sprain of the interosseous membrane. the actual cause would be impossible to determine if you aren't able to recall when the issue first occurred. interosseous membrane injuries are relatively slow to heal. should seek out physical and/or occupational therapy if you have the means else the recovery will take longer than needed.

    1. Got any tips for training to get a bigger ass? I'm sick of being reminded of my lack of it. Preferably bodyweight or dumbbells.

    2. Is there any reason not to take whey protein while cutting? Seems like a no brainer to me to retain as much muscle as possible.

        One more question though, how much leg work is too much?
        I've seen people do them every (other) day or once a week. Is it best to just try and see what frequency and exercises you can handle without creating dips in performance and do that?

      I won't reply to 1 as I don't feel I have enough knowledge.
      For 2, depends, if you cam fit it in your Kcal budget why not? For me is easier to eat some meat or cottage cheese as overall they are lower on calories while shakes are around 500kcal. Whey protein should be a substitute to a meal not a mandatory item, if your diet alredy ensures enough protein you can totally skip it

        >shakes are around 500kcal
        Are they THAT much? Guess it depends on what liquid you use and how much whey.
        I was mostly planning to use it as a supplement in case I don't get enough protein on a given day while cutting by mixing it into a yoghurt or something I would have eaten anyway.
        Sorry if this sounds like a bad idea, I'm completely new to using any sort of supplement

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Of course it depends on the liquid and quantity/quality of the protein powder itself, anon.
          I use 50gr of my powder, which is quite shitty (can only afford the discount one atm) that is 75% protein "only", mixed with 400ml of milk simply because it tastes fucking amazing.

          Some INSANE folks drink it with water, is almost half of the calories but holy shit is disgusting.

          But again, in a cut I'll rather eat some lean meat, eggs or cottage cheese simply because the kcal to protein ratio is much better.

          Again, protein shakes are not mandatory, if they are useful to you and you like them then is all good, otherwise just get your protein from somewhere, as long as you get enough you are good, the source isn't relevant.

          Shakes are just a tool

      You target the glutes the most at the bottom of the squat, the further you go down the more glute activation.

      Your body gets rid of what it doesn’t need, if you stimulate your muscles while at a calorie deficiency your body will avoid cannibalizing the muscles you use as much as possible.

    Can someone help me here. I am basically autistic.

    So I have been alone for years but got in contact with some old buddies. I finally have somewhat of a social circle thing going on. We all go to the bar and they notice I lift and say they want to go to the gym too.

    They have been going for 5-6 months now but they're lifting like shit. Their form is awful and they are ego lifting wanting to keep up with me.

    Do I correct them or leave them to keep fucking up until they lose interest ?
    Would you correct them or just let them do their own thing ?

    • 3 weeks ago

      you have a couple options. my opinion, you shouldnt force the issue too much, they are likely going for the social aspect as much as the gains aspect. they can always lift without you.

      you can say nothing and wait for them to injure themselves, then offer help. theyll be more likely to listen then since they touched the hot stove. then just be like, hey you should bring the weight down a bit and make sure your form is really good so you dont reinjure. offer to check their form on big lifts.
      you could also just say hey, i was hoping i could give you some pointers if you are interested. if they arent, just dont say anything. if they are explain the point of form and how lifting less can be preferable for muscle and strength gain.

      either way, men are gonna be men, so theyre probably going to be stubborn as shit and not want to listen. in which case, fuck it, its not your spine.

    I don't know what's wrong with me I was a man of focus and commitment to fitness my numbers used to be 1/2/2.5/3.5 and losing weight used to be easy. Now I'm a fucking weak loser :(.

      What the fuck are you eating to get 10k? A million metric ton of big macs?

      Man, hunger management comes down to what food you choose to eat during the cut. Some are much more filling that others. I usually eat some meat or stuff that I like with a BIG portion of veggies, where the only purpose of the veggies is to fill me up and avoid hunger, as they are dirty low on calories.

      Avoiding eating too much carbs can be a good idea too, some people have quite an addiction to them

      Depends on what you mean by cutting 5pb, 5lb of weight in general is very doable, the first 3lb that come off when you start will be water weight, a rate of 0.5lb of fat loss per week should put you at 2lb after a month.

      5lb of strict fat loss in a month is not possible without some extreme diet where you’ll lose half your muscle mass.

    What can I do against back pain while deadlifting? I was at ~3 1/2 plates just a few weeks ago and never really noticed anything with my back. Then I injured my leg while jogging and had to pause for two weeks. Last week I then tried to get into it again and suddenly got an insane electric pain in my back making it impossible for me to lift anything after that. Then today I tried again with two plates and noticed the pain creeping up again after two sets. Anyone know what exactly that is and how I can get used to deadlifting again?

      Don’t do deadlifts, they’re a meme exercise, shooting pain down your leg means you’ve got a nerve trapped in your back, putting more stress on your lower back is gonna make it worse.

          Anonymous

          Different anon here. If you are trying to become bigger/stronger, then bulk. I assume you're currently eating at maintenance, so perhaps 200-300 calories more could help.
          There are multiple other things to consider though, ime: Effort & Rest.
          I would seriously ensure that you are actually putting in effort at the gym. I know that sounds condescending, but what I mean is that you need to be aware of what it FEELS like to lift for maintenance vs to lift for growth. I personally stunted in the gym when I was younger because I was unaware of the difference. Try adding 5% more weight with whatever lifts you do (aka, progressively overload) and see if pushing through that slightly harder workout does anything for you.
          On the other hand, if you are unable to add that slight amount of weight, then the issue may be one of rest. This is more unlikely though, because most people don't train hard enough to begin with, but it is still possible.
          Therefore: How is the quantity of your sleep? How about the quality? How long have you been consistently progressing (strength or weight, you choose)? Do you think its time for a rest week?
          I personally take a whole week off (and focus on things like calisthenics and stretching) once every 3-4 months. Take it with a grain of salt though because I have only been consistent with my training for about 8 months now.

      If you go hard on legs, you might see stars or get a little dizzy for a minute or two, maybe even feel sick for a minute or two, but definitely not for an hour afterwards.

          It might be your blood sugar, or just a completely empty stomach. Try to see if you can catch onto a pattern. Next time you do legs, eat a meal and have a candy bar an hour before lifting. See if that helps.

      Depends on bodyweight and effort. For someone who weighs more, it is more impressive. For someone who weighs less, it is less impressive.
      That being said however, it still requires a good deal of effort to get to that point, regardless. There are plenty of folks who are very skinny who can't even do 10.

      If you really want to push the potential of each workout all the way or ego lift, then yes.
      However, you really still need to make sure that you are adequately focusing on the deltoid rather than the legs in the pushing movement. Can you reliably keep the exact effort of your legs the exact same every rep? If not (like 99% of people) then you should keep both in your routine.
      Perhaps try alternating between them every other week. That way you can benefit from both of them.

    guise i have a little home setup with plates and a bar from craigslist, nevermind the fact that the two sleeves are different (one is ridged and makes a PRRRR sound when sliding plates on/off and the other one is totally smooth) but the bar leaves tiny specks of chrome dust on me when i use it, and i'm not 100% what its from, but i have a slight itchy rash right on the front/bottom of my neck that becomes visible if i scratch it at all, this only appeared after doing front squats and the bar came in contact with my neck.. i dont have this anywhere else on my body. the chrome specks are like dust, not flakes. should I buy a nicer bar? is there any way for me to brush/oil or otherwise clean it and prevent this?

      Depends
      If it's just from contact,you likely weren't holding the bar on your shoulders and the friction on the skin irritated it
      If they repainted the bar before selling, you have paint coming off

      why do the gym mirrors make me look smaller than my bathroom mirror

      Warp/perspective

      The pain doesn't really shoot into my legs or arms. It's just the entire muscle area around my lower back and my upper glutes that start to hurt like crazy.

      That means you have bad form.
      I'd guess you arch your back instead of bracing and staying neutral

      you need to do dumbell isolations. stuff like curls and LTE. by doing this the left arm will have to move the weight all on its own, compared to barbell lifts where the right arm would likely dominate and take a little bit more of the load. When you do the isolation work, don't increase the weight until your left arm has caught up with the right (performance wise, not visually). If you want you can also add an extra set just on the left side for your isolations until its caught up with the right.

      You need to eat more and cut your protein intake to 0.8g/lb of lean body mass
      Most lifters get too excited and adopt a shit diet because some roiders told them to. Too much protein kills test and hype.
      Not eating enough calories otherwise has similar effects

      So true. Conservatives have no ideas for how to solve any modern problems. They just want to go back in time but don't understand that's not possible.

      Having some random people generate semantics about non-issues (gay rights etc) is not progressive, it's retarded.

    I'm sure this is stupid but I can't figure out the right search terms to get a good answer.
    Is it more effective to hold a pose, or to flex and relax? For example, when doing pullups, would it build muscle faster to pull myself up and then slowly lower myself back down? or just to pull myself halfway and hold there until failure? I feel like the former makes more sense, but I can't give a good explanation of why.

    Lower days are my main concern idk what to replace the rack pulls on lower 2 with or if i should just keep them in.

    If you train fasted you need to prioritize eating and recovering right after. Also I find I need an hour of being awake before my nervous system turns on, maybe going for a walk in the sunshine before training will help you wake up. If training fasted in the morning allows you to train a lot more consistently then there's a clear benefit. But not, in general training after your first meal is optimal. I only worked out before breakfast because I could not train consistently in the evenings after work last year. Definitely not optimal, but if your consistent it's way better than nothing or inconsistent training.

    beginner here, just read that you're supposed to get about a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.

    i weigh 140lbs so that would mean 140g of protein. even if i eat pure chicken breast twice a day that's still only 50 grams which would mean i'd need to eat chicken breast 6 times a day. eating that meal twice already makes me feel extremely full, i can't imagine 6 times. what?

          Change your food choices and go for more calorically dense sources of protein. Red meats or processed meats might be smarter for you. Nut or Dairy products might help as well. Use protein shakes here and there as well. And get your stomach used to eating more.

So doing anything productive is super hard already, but what's even more hard is sleeping. Hearing nothing and trying to turn my brain off is like turning up the volume of a song to the point your ears hurt. How can I sleep?

    I know this will probably be the stupidest question I've asked here but here I go:
    Let's say I start eating just animal protein (beef, chicken, pork, whatever) with a raw vegetable salad (greens, tomato, carrot) and eggs for lunch/dinner, some form of oats with milk for breakfast, two pieces of fruit per day and possibly one piece of wholemeal toast each and every single day. Is there something inherently WRONG with that? Would it be worse than my crappy diet of takeout and processed shit?
    One of the things pushing me back is dealing with depression and cooking varied and "healthy" recipes with like 999 ingredients each, can I eat just meat, veggies, eggs, oats and fruit and that's it? I don't have the willpower to cook a fucking 5-course meal everyday

      Add fish. Omega-3 is important. Also, Kiwis might be a great option for a fruit.

        You're right, didn't think about that. I can substitute beef/pork/chicken for salmon or sardines a couple times a week to balance it. I love kiwis so that's a good option too.
        I know it sounds stupid but I've been scared with the "YOU NEED TO EAT ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING OR YOU'LL BE MISSING NUTRIETNS" thing but logically just going from eating trash to eating real food MUST be better for me, even if I'm missing some very specific micronutriets from not eating idk, mushrooms.

          My brother in Christ, if tiny micro nutrient deficiencies had such a big impact, the average American life expectancy would be 30.
