In Shape Today
Stop procrastinating and begin your healthy life today!
what IST meme did you fall for?
extended fasting. ended up gaining weight long term
How the fuck did that happen?
This minus the weight gain part. Ive fucked up my endocrine system
Can you elaborate? How did you mess it up and how can you tell? I've been doing extended fasts for autophagy and intestinal health as opposed to losing weight and this has me worried.
I developed reactive hypoglycemia. Because of the fasts while still training, my body would go into panic mode and overproduce insulin when I would break the fasts to get that energy asap. My blood sugar would plummet and I would be horribly dizzy and fatigued, and over time I began exhibiting early signs of anemia (both verified by blood tests ordered by doctors when I complained about the dizziness).
If you're not insanely obese, don't bother with fasting. The autophagy and "gut health" shit is a total meme as nobody has been able to confirm consistent autophagy in humans. The stress from fasting can also cause gut inflammation as fasts are broken.
Autophagy is that thing that constantly happens, and any deficit increases autophagy. Lifting turns it up even more then fasting, cause if the systemic stress and adaptation needed. exercise increases autophagy in a more healthy manner.
and people with the most autophagy are cancer patients who lose weight due to their chemo. but fasting fanatics ignore those things
t. has never fasted more than 24 hours
I did 48s frequently over the past 6 months. Just because you were a fatass with more fat to burn doesn't mean everyone else was.
You would have only gained all that weight back if you eat over your tdee. So many people lose weight fasting and then go back to eating too much after
no shit you put the weight back on
Fasting can mess up some peoples NEAT. kinda the way depression messes with NEAT. your unconcious movements makes up for a huge part of your kcals burned
I’m just here to see the retards that fell for fasting, deadshitting, powershitting, roiding, ohp, gomad, omad, the list goes on
have i fallen?
>no body posted
I deadlift, I do OHPs
Power lifting. If you want to compete, roiding is for trannies, gomad has lost of estrogen just eat normal food, omad is for people who cant put the fork down
Your turn to post body
Also im 190cm 85kg
Nice hair retard, your opinion doesn’t count.
i appreciate your defense of press/dead, but bodyposting doesnt count if there isn't a timestamp
Wtf i hate ohp now????
nothing wrong with deadlifts and ohp as long as you learn to do them in a correct form. can't vouch for other things you listed.
>thinks OHP is a meme
weakfag dedected. it did wonders for my shoulders and triceps
I think a lot of the power of the OHP comes from holding the weight overhead. In that respect, overhead squats and push-press can also be beneficial.
There's a reason people use push-press to get improve their strict press.
the power comes from training the weakspot of OHP. at least in my experience. i do traing the rack position too. being able to hold 20-30kg more then your OHP makes the lift a lot easier, and helps with the power in the bottom of the lift
iirc push press helps a lot cause its so similar, and you can overload the lockout, but i dont have much experience with it.
Hey thanks for the tip on the rack position, right at the bottom is where my reps fail.
i do static holds, but it works wonders. i cant properly rack my OHP on my shoulders, so i have to hold it in my hands. and this is the solution i found. i hope it works for you too
I fell for the rack meme
rack meme? what is that
None of them. My program, diet, exercise selection, form, and rest have all been perfect since I first touched a weight.
Dirty bulking from IST
Nopoo from IST
what the fuck are they trying to do with that one
It means no shampoo, it works quite well for some people
This picture immediately popped in my head, lol.
If you are a former fatty don't bulk. The fake natty fags on Instagram will lie to you as well
How do you gain muscle without caloric surplus?
Keto before it became "just eat a stick of butter" nonsense.
I lost a shitton of weight but gained it all back in the course of a year because I was lonely and started dating a slampig with massive honkers who unsurprisingly only ate fast food.
*in the course of 5 years
5x5 deadlifts, got a hernia
You got architected bro
Get back on that meme diet
The gay one
>IST tells me to do a galleon of milk a day
>go bankrupt buying the ship
He is literally shaped like a ice cream cone.
>Wasted two years trying to compensate for big hips through gymceling
>fasting retains muscles
after a mini bulk then cut i was 10lbs heavier yet maintained the same amount of body fat when i was at my leanest while i was doing prolonged fasting.
Eating more doesn't on shit genetics unless you want to rupture your stomach
I've been on IST for 14 years now. most of you probably won't remember but steel cut oats were a big meme on here back then. so I saw them one day in the grocery store and bought them. shit takes ages to cook and ages to cool down after and while it is unique compared to regular oats, it isn't worth the preparation time
Just do overnight oats, bro
i find steel cut more filling which is perfect when cutting
None, not a single one.
I made my own that I'm trying to push actually, I've been encouraging people to jump on those little rebounder trampolines and I've also been encouraging people to make hot cocoa from raw cocoa powder for antioxidants and energy.
I'll have to think of some new memes to start after these ones, I'm not really a graphic designer so it'll be hard to get the cocoa and trampolines memes to take off with just text.
taking vitamins made me start to lose my hair
i fell for so many
the onion meme
>read post on here saying ancient greek or romans ate raw onions (actual onions no the other ones) before battle to boost test
>they won battles and shit cause of it
>believe it and decide to try it myself
>didnt want to eat onion so i decide to use my moms juicer
>juice red onion; produced about 1 cup of onion juice
>plug my nose and down it all
>throat burning as all the onion juice makes its way into my stomach
>finish entire cup
>stomach feels like it's dissolving, begin to panic thinking it might burn a hole through the stomach walls
>get urge to throw up, but determined to hold it in
>lye down on couch in absolute misery for 3 hours as it digested
needless to say, fuck you whoever posted that infopost. there is no way they fucking ate onions before battle. they would have definitely lost
wasn't as embarrassing as my experience with falling for the sardine meme though. the olive oil meme wasn't as bad but still was awful
I don't know why I still come here
You're so fucking dumb, you cannot follow most simplest of instructions, no wonder you're low test. I drink onion juice every other day and never ever had stomach problems.
what fucking onion are you supposed to use then?
and how do you drink onion juice every day? that's like 365 onions a year what the fuck
Umm, hello? White onion? And learn to read, i said every other day.
I think you're partially at fault here, you should work your way up. Try at first a piece of raw onion, then eat a quarter in a day, then a half, then a whole onion
Anons weren't telling you to eat onions, they were telling you to eat ESS-OH-WHY.
Good Lord you're a retard, slowly work your way up to a whole onion. You're not a Greek hoplite or Roman legionary, you can't just munch an onion brfore training without practice.
>inb4 it was s o y instead of onions
onion juice actualy raises test levels, iirc. i read a paper where about 1-2L of onion juice would make you not natty. but im guessing youll get other issues + the high test issues from the juice itself
Onions worked for me, but it did scare away a workout partner and my gas smelled like death.
Bugs never bothered me during it though
Onion eating is actually a common battle thing right up to ww1, but I'm pretty sure it's less for any performance enhancing benefits and more that they're strongly flavoured, perfect for going into battle.
Squats and oats, years ago. Oats and greens ruined my digestion for years and I didn't fix it until carnivore got popular. Mad at myself for listening to meme diet pushers for all those years and forcing myself to eat that crap thinking it was normal to be bloated, constipated and farting all day.
>"Don't crash diet you will gain all the weight back!1!1!1!1!11!!!!!11!!
Almost every meme that has a general is a meme. The biggest tell is if they have cult like behavior and can't concede on the slightest downside.
Doing minimalist strength routines, drinking 2 litres of milk a day and several mcdoubles
minimalist strength routines are awesome, if you work. jsut make sure theyre balanced
Fell for the dont do cardio meme. Not that i do it often (like 1.5 mile run a week), but cardios helped me get leaner and allowed me to recover quicker between sets of heavy lifting
but cardio kills gainz, im cutting so i have little muscle and it will go away if i do cardio
To answer gay OP, i fell for Rippettoe SS, and squats, lol
Im cutting too anon. Cutting is the best time to do cardio. I run it alongside a lighter version of nsuns 531, keeping most of my gainz (1.5/2/4/4 of lifts still)
keto, powerlifting, GOMAD, sex and onions.
went from 70kg to 94 in a little over a year. Ruined my skin with stretch marks because of this.
>carnivore diet/mongol diet
gave me high blood pressure
>stretch marks at 94kg
180cm/5'11. It was more so because I gained too fast
When did you notice the marks? Could you just not have cut when you first noticed?
I’m slightly taller and heavier than you, and I’ve gained a lot the past six months. No signs of stretch marks yet afaik, hoping to bulk for another two months before cutting.
yeah I should have but I was young and stupid so I kept going and made the problem worse. This was like 8 years ago. They are barely visible now.
Calisthenics, it's such a waste of time bros. You'll get better faster at calisthenics by training barbell compound lifts at the gym with some pull ups and dips on the side than by doing calisthenics.
>what IST meme did you fall for?
White men are the strongest race.
Did it for 3 months, got stronger but had next to no gains so I quit
2 months ago I started again, but this time I do PPL with all the SS compound lifts included. I've already seen way more gains and I'm just as strong.
>Pump vs gains the post
>Liver and raw milk.
I was liverpilled for a little while, saw basically no difference in gains or mental clarity whatsoever. Plus I hate fucking liver. Raw milk was just a pain in the ass to get, and for what? To drink hipster milk and pretend that I'm a farmer even though I don't even own a house yet lmao? Nutritionally, meme supps like zinc unironically did more for me than either of the above. I'll probs go raw milk gang eventually when I drop a down payment on a property though. Want to have a goat and make milk/cheese with it. Seems like it would be fun.
Was 1/2/3/4 a meme?
Counting the first rep. You don’t count the first rep, right anon?
No, the warm up sets do count tough.
But you don't count the bar, ffs
I’m not a zoomer, of course I don’t count the bar.
But you don’t count the first set of plates on your warm up sets, right?
Don't tell me you count the collars
Of course not, but I use two sets of collars…did I fall for that meme?
Squat plug. It just made me shit myself while squatting.
Treating deadlift as a grip exercise and letting it lag behind my other compounds.
working legs (at all)
eating more than 30g protein per meal
also yo-yo dieting
Tipping the receptionist. Fuck you guys
Unironically the old squats and oats meme which is why I can squat 505 with no assistance but can barely bench 2pl8
Not killing myself
SS, but then i did rows instead of cleans, and added curls, rear delt lateral raises and chest isolation, and it turned into a great program for aesthetics
Realized I've just fallen for Jim Wendlers 5/3/1 meme.
>be me, dyel gay 90 kg bw
>not really gay
>do 5x5 with accesories while eating 200-300 above maintenance
>happily go to 5x5 70 bench but stall on 50 kg OHP
>start 5/3/1 to break plateu
>says to start with deload or ngmi
>deload on all lifts
>1.5 months later can't even do 1x5 70 kg bench
what the fuck
Honestly surprised someone fucked up 5/3/1...it's so simple and progress is slow, so not sure how you minced it
Memes aside, I did the 2day/week version together with oly lifts twice a week. So going from 5x5 to benching once every 2 week seems to be too little volume for a newfag like me. I did better on lower body lifts, because of snatching/cleaning, I guess. Also got covid in the meantime.
So basically it's my fault for being retarded
beginners thrive of frequency. you can train each lift every second day without issues. at the start you can probably go everyday, but youre increasing the chance of overuse issues. too much too fast is often a road to injuries
Abs made in the kitchen meme. You need to train them or youll look skinny fat after a cut
doing powerlifting exercises (squat, bench press, deadlift)
Lifting for strength. My lifts are way stronger than they were in first pic but I look the same. 4 months progress, not trying to complain because I feel good and I like seeing numbers go up but I might have to throw some hypertrophy in my routine so I don’t continue to look dyel
>compounds are all you need for abs
Trained for a year, never did ab isolations and now my abs are nowhere to be found unless I flex them like I'm trying to take a shit
>b-but you're not as lean as you think you are
I literally have lower ab veins
shit dude, thank you
it never sounded right to me that just squats and deadlifts are "enough for abs". makes no sense
what do you do for abs now?
Fell for this one too.
I second this.
Right now I just do legs and abs on the same day. I'll throw in leg raises and use the ab crunch machine.
Though I'm certain there are better exercises, I just haven't figured them out yet.
SS + GOMAD meme combined with the cardio kills your gainz brah meme
