I've started working on my front squats. I really like the movement, and I think I'm now getting into a respectable "front rack" position (pictured). It's nice, stable enough to nearly match my regular/back squat.

Thing is, the outside of my collarbones are still bruising where I'm holding the bar. Can any weightlifters comment on whether the collarbones eventually adapt?

3936 Fat bastard weight loss thread
Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

Did I already do my "dumb cave person" bit in this thread? Regardless, it's because your brain's still the same organ that had people chasing mammoths off cliffs tens of thousands of years ago, so when it sees two pieces of chicken and chips or a pack choc-ices it's beside itself with joy. It's very difficult to overcome those baser instincts, and we have to artificially train ourselves to do certain "unnatural" things and that's hard. Especially, as it sounds like from the tone of your posts,if you're attempting to do these things on your todd by opting for "staring at a wall and being annoyed" instead of eating. Not to mindlessly parley a meme but perhabs joining something like Slimming World might help, as people often learn better in groups and what you're doing is essentially learning not to overeat.

This is a very smug and presumptuous post I'll probably regret later so I'm ending it here, for all our sakes.

Started doing this workout 2 months ago and I'm already getting bigger and feel fitter.

Row
Dip
Sumo Deadlift
Curl
OHP
Squat
Calf raise

All exercises for 3x20, 1 min rest. 2 workouts a week.

The high reps give me a massive pump and leave me breathless. The latest studies show that high reps are just as effective at building muscle as low reps. They're also easier on the joints and give you a good cardio workout.

Low reps are for wimps. High reps are what the real tough guys do.

A 5 rep set is all over in a few seconds. A 30 rep squat or 20 rep deadlift is a whole other kind of beast. Your muscles will be set on fire and you'll be breathing like a horse at the end of the set. It's the difference between a little scuffle in the street and going a whole round in the ring taking pounding after pounding.

Any really effective drug is going to come with side effects, so I'd encourage you to think about the underlying causes first.

The biology for hunger and satiety is a bit more complex than most people acknowledge. You might do well to read up on hormonal regulators like leptin and ghrelin, and what affects them. For example, losing sleep can affect how we experience hunger and how we digest food.

The solution to your problem could be something as simple as eating slower, giving you a chance to feel satiated before eating too many calories.

It's well known that people are capable of eating a lot more calories from hyper-palatable foods like chocolate or salted chips/skinny fries. Something as simple as adding highly satiating foods like protein or vegetables, in place of snacks, might help.

Also, are you on any drugs for which increased appetite is a known side effect? Antidepressants, steroids, etc.?

It's also worth asking, are you currently underweight or overweight? Often our perceptions of our bodyweight dont line up with the reality. Have you experienced any kind of disordered eating in the past?

I drink quite a lot of water at work. This might sound daft but it feels a bit... thin and hollow is probably the best way to describe it; not filling. Perhaps I just need to add lemon or honey to it.

I'm not on any drugs. I'm about 5'11" and I'm not entirely sure on my weight; I think it's somewhere around 12 stone. I'm reaching the point where I'm going to have to go from 32" jeans to 34" ones.

I do eat vegetables with most meals. I think the issue might be that I follow a largely vegetarian diet and it simply doesn't fill you the way that meat does.

Did you change to this mostly veg diet recently?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you're consciously registering cravings and mid-morning hunger pangs more because you're naturally climbing a jean size as you get older. 34" is fine and the increase is expected at this time of year with the winter gorging and Christmas treats. Eat and be merry now but get on the old bike come January to burn it off before summer.

From a medical point of view you sound perfecly healthy, my crude math says your BMI is 23.5 and your body fat is under 20% if you want to be slimmer you are probably at the point where exercise would be better then dieting.

Get some scales. Healthy BMI was 20-25, but lower bound was taken down to 18. Sorry to say, but it's highly unlikely you have some hormonal leptin secretion defect that's influencing your weight. The answer is the same as it's ever been; and it's as horrible as it ever was -- eat less, exercise more.

>>4739
There's a proven link between increased stress and weight gain, and a link between <N hours of sleep and increased stress. Aside from the other bad side effects, this is one way in which caffeinated beverages might hurt somebody on a diet even though they're 0-calorie. They're also diuretics, which I think is bad for appetite regulation.

Check out -- https://www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/being-overweight-linked-to-poorer-memory

That's another mechanism to link lack of sleep and overeating. Dr. Cheke's other research is interesting. The strength of your memory of how recently you eat, will influence when you eat next. If you eat with distractions (eg. using your phone, in front of the TV), you remember the episode less well, and eat your next meal sooner. She's investigating a hypothesis of a causal link between age-related memory impairment, and weight gain in middle age -- people gain weight in middle age; middle age is when memory begins to decline. Lots of interesting research, lots of academics and medics with lots of explanations as to why everybody's fat now. But there's a consensus on the solution, which is, "eat less, exercise more".

Any of you lads have or have had travel sickness and beat it?

I'm starting a job in January that is further than my current and I'd want to use that time on public transport doing something useful like reading. The problem is I can go about 1 minute of reading while moving before I feel dizzy and get a headache. I'm fairly certain it would then evolve into a migraine.

Looking out the window will get fairly boring.

A few practical suggestions spring to mind. If you need glasses, wear them. Similarly, books with larger and easier to read print are likely to be less aggravating. Experiment with facing different directions and places on the vehicle and see what works best for you. If you don't want to take medication, I've found ginger really helps as an antiemetic.

The nausea, in my experience, is actually caused by trying to hold the book too steady. Your inner ear feels your body moving, but you're focused on a book you're doing your best to hold still. It's these mixed signals that make you feel sick. Personally I relax my hands and arms so the book moves along with any bumps or swaying.

I got over it just through repeated exposure. When I started taking flying lessons I would get it quite badly, but by the time I got my licence it was no longer an issue.

It would be unpleasant to put yourself through it, but you could find that by just forcing yourself to do it every day (stopping well before you actually vomit of course) could get your body used to the sensation.

Work it out in terms of cycles. You're going to want to run half a gram a week or 250mg e3d. Your cycle will be twelve weeks long, so you're looking at 2ml / week x 12 weeks = 24ml or roughly three bottles of gear. Don't forget your PCT.

I sometimes use a mask I purchased for this very purpose from the Cambridge Mask Company.

One noticeable difference while wearing it out and about is that people are unable to see you smile at them. So if you catch someone's eye and want to be friendly, or bump into someone and want to look apologetic, you can't. It's quite dramatic how being bereft of that single facial expression can suddenly make you a social outcast, quite apart from wearing something odd in the first place.

>People who pump themselves full of steroids then stand in front of a mirror all day aren't exactly the same as people who get a body like that through hard work alone.

I don't see why they wouldn't be at that point, I struggle to think of the job that would warrant someone passively developing a body like that, someone has to be going out of their way for some reason to develop that body, either because they are highly competitive or out of ascetics, and at that level of obsession I don't see why one is any more virtuous than the other. Mike Tyson was an absolute daemon at the height of his career but if you ignore the money, could you imagine your life being this heavily devoted to a few minutes of fighting, that isn't hyperbole either Tyson had 23 professional fights where he knocked out his opponent in the first round a lot of those in under a minute.

Diabetic lad here.


I want to cure my type 2 diabetes before it turns me into a rotting zombie. The doctors do not want to hear any of it, they just want to pump me full of Metformin, Lantus and Novorapid.

Here's my plan: intermittent fasting, no food allowed from 8PM to 12AM. 1000 calories every day, mainly beans, rice, green vegetables, lean meat. Only drinks allowed are coffee or tea without milk or sugar, sparkling water.

Following this guidelines, I had my blood sugar at 7, without taking any insulin or metformin. I am going to speak with my diabetic nurse next week and ask what she thinks of it.

Any advice?

4602 Health benefits of following a vegan diet
Alright lads

Wondering if there's anyone on this who can shed any light on the health benefits/drawbacks of following a vegan or otherwise plant-based diet?

Reason I'm asking is that anything I find backing up my own experience seems a bit quacky or otherwise contains a bit of an agenda. Nutritional advice on the internet is mental.

Thoughts?

For myself, I cut out the shite at the end of December, and have noticed a lot of positive changes. My reasons for doing so were that I was getting a lot of colds, flus, coughs, fevers and the like. Since then, I haven't had a sniffle, I've lost 4 stone and my erectile dysfunction disappeared.

However, I'm not sure if those are a result of introducing a lot of veg, or a result of cutting out the mince and cheese.

>There are also plenty of vegans who don't really like cooking, and still manage to eat pretty well with minimal effort

This was what I've always wondered about. I'm a cheflad so when I think 'vegan' I think about lots of lentil and bean soaking, lots of roasting aubergines, and lots of complicated japanese tofu dishes. I suppose the reality for someone who isn't a food wanker like myself it's closer to quorn (or whatever else if that's not vegan) sausages and chips, but for some reason I never thought about that until now.

As someone who has to design menus I've always been very conscious of the limited choices you lot have in 'regular' restaurants. I'm sure there's only so many bowls of risotto one person can eat. I know it's getting better these days, but I still work hard to offer interesting options wherever I can.

I've been thinking about this a lot, really. As a professional I'm quite confident that I understand the wants and needs of people like me, i.e. meat eaters - I have that sixth sense for what people want on a menu, but it's always meat centric. Even my veggie plates often end up being adapted from meat based dishes - which is why I've been considering going vegan for a decent amount of time, maybe half a year minimum, so I can learn what it is you really 'want' when that's your daily diet. Not to mention I suspect it'll be cheaper and probably healthier for me, as I think about my fridge full of chorizo and fatty calf's liver and so on.

Sage for being a wanker and musing about the culinary mindset of a vegan as if you're an alien. Hopefully you get what I mean.

Yes, people didn't eat meat very often in generations past, but that's irrelevant. If you're going to appeal to your ancestors then you might as well start eating everything raw like a caveman.

Personally, my favourite meals tend to be similar to thali. They're not necessarily very complicated, but they have a variety of distinct tastes and textures. I appreciate that cooking and plating lots of little things is a pain in the arse in a commercial kitchen, but some simple additions can make a big difference - some crunchy raw peppers in lemon juice or vinaigrette, a crispy little puri or some tortilla chips, a blob of chutney or relish, a little nest of grated carrot or sprouted seeds, a sprinkle of nuts. If my plate looks fresh and colourful, I'm probably happy.

One thing I've noticed in restaurants is that there's never just a nice big salad, it's always one that's intended to be served with a meat or substitute (halloumi is the 'in' thing right now), or otherwise something vegan that's still somehow pumped full of salt, fat and sugar through overly rich dressings.

It's not even a proper whinge though, but I'd like it if, when I'm dragged to a restaurant by the missus or mates that I can just enjoy the veg for what it is, cos it tastes nice enough to me as is.

That's just me though, as I enjoy simple food. It feels like there's a bit of a concerted effort to overcomplicate food even in the chains. Even the normal pubs round here are peddling sweet potato and halloumi like it's going out of fashion.

All I can tell you is I've been taking a multivitamin and "men's health" tablet for the last couple of weeks and my stiffys have been well vigorous.

4553 Rests between reps
I've been doing a workout consisting of chin up, dip, squat, stiff deadlift, curl, OHP, and calf raise all for one set of 20.

Instead of just bouncing the weight up and own and cranking out the reps as fast as possible I've been doing the reps with a short pause after each one. It's about 5 seconds or 1-2 breaths. It takes about 3 mins to do each set of 20.

By slowing down and doing each rep individually it improves the mind-muscle connection and prevents you from getting too out of breath. Total workload is also higher since the rests allow you to use more weight. One set done in this fashion is probably worth 2 or 3 sets in normal continuous style.

The clue is in the name. It's specifically aimed at strength training, not general fitness.

Incidentally, an equal part mix of SS and SL started me off in the gym, and now I specifically train for Oly so horses for courses really ennit

Coach has the gall to be away this week looking after better lifters who are actually at competition so I'm being left to do snatch practice on my own on Friday. Mummy hold me I'm scared

Is that picture real? they look like a cut n shunt even the clothing style changes from dude bro to hipster. I fail to belive that guys legs could be that under developed. Even just carry the weight of his torso should make his legs bulkier then that.

Ok, the more I've examined your theory the less sense it makes to me. My max OHP is 67.5kg: 75% of that would be ~50kg. I can in no way do 20 reps of this, or even close. With bench I'd be doing 75kg and again, not even close. Ditto for every other lift without even getting started on chucking pause sets in there.

And why would anyone know or want to know their 1RM for bicep curls? It's an accessory, not a main lift, and one that's notoriously hard not to cheat on. And people cheat on it like the Dickens anyway, how often have you seen some jackass loading 50kg or what have you onto a barbell and practically throwing their whole body forwards to get it up? I'll admit this can be worth doing to overload the eccentric but it's not a clean lift in any way. I'm inclined to think you are woefully underestimating your 1RMs.

For all the people complaining that SS is a strength program unsuited to the everyday gymgoer, bear in mind that you will still get loads of those gainz you're seeking from it. Moreover when you improve your overall strength you're increasing the total volume you can lift for hypertrophy anyway. And you'll be learning good form which will protect you against injury.

This thread is baffling.

Try taking a short rest in between each rep...
