>>35 >the fatter you are the more calories you need to eat to maintain your current weight while doing literally nothing This is true, but people tend to massively overestimate the size of the effect. As I recall, back at my heaviest my break-even point was about 2300 calories, and then after losing 60 lbs, it went down to about 1950 calories or so. A difference of about 350 calories, but I was really fat, well into the 30% body fat area.

What's improved for you lately? I've started working more regularly and feel great, but I still need slim down on junk food. Also feel like rollan?
Covid closed the gyms and now they're open but at reduced hours, closing at 9pm so zero chance by the time I'm off work. I can feel that lazy feel getting huge, but I'm physically incapable of working out in the morning.

I've increased the intensity of my workouts over the past few months, largely due to hiring a trainer to help me out. It's nice not being a poorfag college student anymore. I've definitely noticed gains, and my friends have commented on me getting more muscular and slimmer too. I think I'm hovering somewhere around 12-13% body fat, and I'd really love to be able to drop down to 10%. I think I need to make more of a conscious effort to eat more vegetables though.
Got measured for a suit a few weeks ago and gained at least an inch of muscle across my entire body. Want to gain more mass so currently bulking. Right now sitting at about 20% body fat.

What do you anons listen to when working out? Besides 80's metal I've been listening to Eurobeat and Powerwolf. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8B4guKLlbVU

>>2 Have some more 80s metal

Calisthenics /fit/izen 10/19/2020 (Mon) 12:39:10 Id:1fc2f9 No. 38 [Reply]
Is it possible to obtain a strong build with merely calisthenics. I've been doing it a year or two and I've gotten a lot buffer and lost a lot of weight, I used to weigh over 14 stone now I'm in the 10 stone region. What I want to know is if I can build my muscles using just calisthenics so I don't have to use any money on buying impractical weights and not waste any money going to the gym. Better to use just your body than things that are completely unnatural imo.

>>44 I never drink anything with caffine. I think it has something to do with the alarm clock because whenever I'm off I get great amounts of sleep. This obviously isn't ideal for me either. I love my beauty sleep, But I'm not about to go quitting my job unless their is a pretty good reason for it. Thing is I start work at 7 am and I usually walk it which takes around an hour. So I pretty much have to wake up around half five in the morning. My diet is pretty much fruit, meat and wheat. I avoid shit like soy as well. So diet wise I'm in pretty good shape. It really depends on the day when I go to bed honestly. I go to bed around 11 and wake up around 8 so I think I've got decent sleeping pattern. Obviously this is talking when I'm not at work. When I'm at work I go to bed at around half nine so I wake up for the alarm.
>>45 To me this seems all in order then. I usually plan wit 7-8 hours of sleep and depending on what time i have to wake up is go to bed. Of course this means i go to bed between 20:00 and 21:00. If you think about it all people usually do in the evening is killing time, so i have no problem with going to bed early. On a side note i workout in the morning partly so i don't have to wake up to go to work. I wake up to do something i like. Other thing that could help is to take your smartphone when you wake up and do some reading or news checking.
>>38 I switched to calisthenics, and what I noticed is that I do make gains a lot faster, and in areas that I felt like I'd been neglecting for a while (like lats and pecs) I think they're more efficient for muscle growth, but then after recently lifting weights again I noticed that I get a bigger testosterone boost and development in muscle density when I do things like bicep curls and bench presses. Just do whatever works best for your body.

>>19 >Chaliapin Don** I fucked up typing it I guess Anyway here's a picture I found on Jewgle images of what an actual Chaliapin Steak would end up looking like. Onions are good for your T levels and steak is good for your gains. Best way to eat for your gains is to make sure what you're eating is fucking delicious. The Golden One also has some good recipes on his channel. Anons should check out the gains FUCKING kitchen.
>>19 >>20 Do you really put so much effort into cooking every day? I eat the same meals almost everyday. That way i know exactly what i need to buy and what the expenses are. It makes it easy to stick to it. I would suggest having an bunch of staple meals that you can eat often and are easy to make. More extravagant meals can be inserted as wanted. Important is a base that you can always fall back to.
>>24 >Do you really put so much effort into cooking every day? Actually, yes I do. You don't want to hear the steps I take to make Ramen, which I have about 3 times a week. Just out of curiosity, what does your diet look like?

>>4 Sorry to hear that anon. There's a few ways a punch can go wrong. The first and simplest is by scuffing your knuckles across the target. Everyone does this all the time when they're first starting martial arts. I've lost count of how many scabs I formed and then tore open by scuffing my knuckles. Something helpful to keep in mind for this is that you want to strike with either the top 2 knuckles (index and middle finger), or the bottom 3 (pinky, ring, and middle). Those knuckles should hit the target and dig in, then come straight back to your face for defense, no sliding across the target. The second way that a punch can go wrong is by closing your fingers over your thumb when you make a fist. NEVER DO THIS. It may not happen on the first punch, or the 100th punch, or the 1000th punch, but eventually you will break your own goddamm thumb by doing this. Finger bones and joints are fragile, and easy to break if a relatively small amount of force is applied in just the right way. And your thumb is NOT meant to have the full force of a max strength punch bending that knuckle joint, which is exactly what happens if your thumb is inside a closed fist; it's in the force load path. If your thumb is outside of a closed fist, then landing a punch doesn't transmit any force at all through the thumb. The next way I can think of for a punch to go wrong is by not holding your wrist locked and steady enough. So basically, you connect with the target, but you hurt your wrist like hell in the process. There's probably a few others, but those are the ones that come to mind immediately. As for my own feels: >spent the past several months (on and off) working on punching form >get to a stage I'm decently happy with >spar with training partner >he's much better and more experienced than me, but I land a few good hits >coach sees us sparring >"Anon, your footwork looks like shit. We're going to need to fix that." Life is suffering.
>>11 Good punching advice. I used to box as a kid and the tfour biggest things I was taught were >strengthen your wrist, because anything that bends will eventually break >the thumb-inside-the-fist-thing, never ever fucking do that >the 2 or 3 knuckle rule, it's critical for follow-up strikes because you have a consistent "base" and know where your hand is at all times (hard to describe but I liken it to having a consistent picking technique while playing guitar, or learning to type via Home Row) >don't try to punch through your target. Learn the distance and learn to "snap" your punches so you connect at the last possible instant. This is why "getting inside" is so critical in boxing if you're on the defensive; someone who can't fully extend their arm can't fully bring their strength to bear on you
>>4 >>11 Anon you really should use boxing gloves for heavy bag work. Seriously, in the beginning the most important thing is to train consistently and you cant do that if you keep hurting your hands or wrists.
