What’s your height and weight?

Obvious answer is to eat better and run to lose the weight. If your only goal is to look good in a tank top do tricep and bicep workouts, farmers carries for forearms, pushups + dips for pecs, and some pull ups for lats. Actually you probably want to do something for delts and traps while you’re there.

Basically what I’m saying is workout properly if you want to look good
>>
>>50502341
It could be some one with downs syndrome even. There are a lot of retards in /fit/
>>
Next summer is a more realistic goal. You need big, defined shoulders to really carry off the tank.
>>
All you need for a tank top is the right attitude bro.

What's your take on Reverse Pyramid Training, made popular by Mr. Berkhan and Kinofag.

OP has 5yrs+ of powerlifting with poverty bench but pretty decent squat/deadlift. I have tried many programs and can program my own training fairly well, but every time I am experimenting with minimalistic RPT approach (very low frequency, very low volume, high intensitety) I get the best gains.

None of the more sophisticated programs (eg. Sheiko, Smolov, basic programming with volume blocks, strength block and peaking) work as well and aren't nearly as fun as RPT, but RPT calls for less sacrifice and is far more flexible. I have had two different coaches, but still putting more effort has not yielded better results than working out only ~3 times a week, 3-4 exercises and 2-3 sets per exercise.

Why does this work so well, even though it is completely the opposite of what modern strength training science suggests (for example, CWS's or Tuschererererer's training philosophies which are based on science)?

His physique is really good and the guy is 6'8 and above 200 lbs. Compared to some other berserk characters (not counting apostles cause they mog everyone in terms of physique) I think he has a good shot.

Must not be counting your semen intake a day op. Sounds like you’re just leaving out 2500 cals or so.
>>
>>50504826 If you eat at a deficit your body slows down it's functions and decreases your daily calory need. Also 3000 calories might not be enough to gain weight depending on how hard you are working out and how big you are to begin with

Find me one (1) example of an obese person who starved to death. You can't go into starvation mode over like 15% BF
Bloated starving children are just that, bloated. They have nearly no fat on them. Why the fuck would a starving body store its fat exclusively in a pot belly?

/thread

Hello /fit/ friends, I’ve been looking around for ways to lose weight quickly and I’ve found a few things I’m confused about. Sorry if I sound completely new to this, because I am. Alright, so question 1: does carb cycling work at all? It seems like a good idea. Q2: Can I consume fats from good sources like steaks and eggs like normal while also losing weight. And finally, does HIIT work? Thanks in advance, although I’ve been playing rugby for 11 years now I feel like actually focusing on weight loss.

>>50504523
Pic sort of related? Idk what it means but I got it off a site.

Yes, yes and yes. People will always debate on 1st question though.

I went over to the dude afterward and just told him to look up proper form. There's better ways of telling a person to do a workout properly than telling them not to do them.

Reduces liability on her end. Imagine countless imbeciles deadlifting, a few are gonna end up snapping their shit and suing. Most gyms have agreements to sign in the beginning, but even if the case won’t go anywhere, the paperwork involved isn’t worth it so she’s told by management to discourage people from doing “dangerous” exercises.

seriously tho how do you stop this epidemic? some of my dyel friends decided to join the gym but they won't take my advice because their PT's just throw their meme exercise sience knowledge like toning and smith machine bs on them, I feel like I'm powerless.

Can I use a treadmill barefoot?

I bought a treadmill. I don't like shoes. Can I use the treadmill barefoot, or will that fuck up my feet/shins/knees?
>>
If you aren't used to barefoot running it can hurt the bones in your feet over time. There used to be a thing on Vibram's site about how to transition to barefoot running. Also be careful of the friction between your foot skin and the rubber of the treadmill.

PF doesn't have such a fee.
Like most gyms they make the majority of their money by customers that sign up but rarely visit the gym.
Unlike most gyms PF goes full hog on this tactic by doing their best to keep /fit people out (lunk alarm/marketing that makes fun of /fit people /weights that will be to light after a year of serious well planned training)and keeping the fees really low so people won't bother canceling their membership just because never use it.
They also take care to give you the impression you are receiving good value for your money (pizza/bagel events amenities)

If you need a place to do cardio (I love moving my sprints indoors for winter) Or you are a broke/frugal beginner or maybe someone that just wants to do some light to stay healthy PF probably is a great place.

On a side note I am blocked from commenting on their YouTube vids.
>>
PF is the cheapest gym in town that is open 24/7, and even though I'm maxing out most of the machines, it is only supposed to last a few months at most for me, so I'll take watching dumbasses sitting on the machines for 10 minutes and the shitty locker rooms for the no commitment.

hello anons, I'm new to fit and working out, not new to 4chan but that's beside the point. I've tried to work out in the past, but I have eye problems so when my blood pressure goes up from exertion it's risky for my vision, which has made me reluctant to work out in the past, and makes me panic when it happens. However, I've recently come to the realization that unless I at least work out a bit I will never get a gf. currently I'm 5'11 and about 135 lbs. so things are pretty dire since my face is already not the best.

anyways, what are some good, light exercises I could do that won't strain my eyes too much while also fixing my skelly physique. not looking for anything crazy, just enough so that I can get a chance with girls. ty anons.

if it's that bad dude do a lot of body-weight shit and consider going to a 24/7 gym when nobody's around. But in reality, hardly anyone gives enough fucks to belittle you. The people that do wouldn't ever tell you anyway because they're weak pussies trying to get stronger just like yourself

>but I feel like I'll look like a pussy if I go to the gym and can only safely bench like 50 pounds due to my eye
Find a big commercial gym full of DYELs and cardio bunnies and your light weights will blend into the crowd.
