I didn't need to see these negresses in gym gear.

I refuse to look at the gifs long enough to check form, but the article in general is weird in its love for barbells as opposed to dumbbells.

What are the worst practices of diet and exercise that you encounter among people genuinely trying to lose weight/get in shape/maintain?
Awesome question!

With regards to diet, what I have found with virtually all my fat loss clients (which is to say the vast majority of my clients) is that they are healthy all week and then go mental on the weekend. So they stay the same shape as they burn the calories during the week but mess it all up on the weekend. My fix to this, by the way, is not this "80/20" bullshit where you have 80% healthy 20% unhealthy foods everyday. The long term goal is to fix your hormones. I usually challenge them to go 2 weeks low or no carb, and zero sugar, as a sort of "reset" of the hormones that make you crave junk.

With regards to training, virtually nobody is trainias hard as they're supposed to. The nerd faggot "I FUCKING love Science" crowd has invaded the fitness industry like bedbugs and their whole shtick is that volume is the be-all- end-all, which is false. It's intensity.

Oh, yeah. That's definitely been true for me in the past, and what I've observed in others.

Any plan (that isn't unique, i.e., identifiable to you) that can be shared? Maybe a partial example?

Yes so keep it simple, hit each body part twice per week, look to progress each workout.

So a simple example would be splitting the body 2 ways, and hitting the gym 4 times per week. For example, Day 1 is Chest, Back, and Shoulders, and Day 2 is legs and arms. You can do Day 1 on Monday and Thursday, Day 2 on Tuesday and Friday.

2 exercises for each body part 3 sets each exercise. The first 2 sets should be easy tk medium intensity, because you want to have the energy to go to your absolute max on the final set.

Stick to a rep range of 6 - 10 reps. Try add a rep to each exercise each workout. Once you can do 10 reps, add weight and go back to 6 and repeat.

That's basically crossfit.


ZERO!

Semi-serious question: What do you think about vegan natty bodybuilding and this guy's 300 reps?

Vegan Natty Bodybuilding Vlog: Day 2 - Chest

My biceps this morning feel AMAZIN'! very mild soreness with a euphoria I haven't experienced since I was a teenager getting my dick wet.

Today's Workout:
30 minutes flat/incline/decline bench press
20 minutes bicycle
10 minutes machine press
Total Sets: Approx 30 sets of 10 reps. Rotating type when bicep compensation became apparent.

I didn't achieve the total exhaustion I hoped for because biceps were activated on everything towards the end and I'm supposed to rest them for 3 days to profit on the gain. I'm unable to imagine doing shoulder workouts without inevitable bicep compensation also. The lesson learned is that biceps should be focused at the very end of the week and not the beginning. Next week will go chest -> leg -> shoulder -> abdominal -> bicep -> cardio

What do you think of intermittent fasting diets like the 8:16 or the 4:20 ? (16 and 20 hr daily fast)
I would go as far as to call it essential. And not because it helps "limit calories". It has actual physiological ans hormonal benefits.

When your body isn't constantly digesting stuff, you give it time to do what it needs to do. This is key to keeping your hormones in check. Remember, it's your hormones that give you cravings and make you feel hungry.

I eat between 10am and 5pm every day (7 hour window) and full day fast on Saturday.

Been absolutely crucial in my battle with my broken relationship with food. I now treat myself with fruit and maybe a little bit of custard when I want to "cheat" instead of tons of chocolates and biscuits like I used to when my hormones were screwed up from having 6 meals a day and excess carbs.

my fasting gurus are telling me that fat during a fast is a-ok especially mct oil in coffee...of course dave sells mct oil and coffee...

I fast on Sunday and have a little butter and MCT oil in coffee part way through...seems to shut down ghrelin. now I'm not buying the clean coffee because I'm a cheap jew, but what do you think of toxins in commercial coffee as a detriment to hormonal/cellular health?

it does work for me, but I'm no AMA fighter.

Good day Kings. If anyone has any questions about their workout, diet, or generally getting fit and healthy, feel free to ask and I'll try to answer!
Greetings! I'm 57, I weigh 160#s, 6' tall and very muscular in excellent health. I have arthritis in every joint but my knees, I take turmeric and aspirin. I'm always very stiff in the morning, I lift light weights and walk a lot. How can I turn back the clock on inflammation and arthritis joint pain. I've never had a doctor, self analysis, I don't think it's rheumatoid arthritis, just age wear and tear related. Thanks for any advise you think would help!

I've done a couple three-day fasts, which I strongly recommend to anybody for whom it isn't medically proscribed. Those were pretty intense. After 24 hrs of no food, my thoughts became dramatically clearer, and my senses sharpened--especially my sense of smell. The food cravings were pretty harsh but they gave me a physical sensation to focus upon. I will need to do another such fast when I have a block of time set aside for protracted alone time.

It sounds like you would benefit from taking up qigong or Tai Chi practice. Both of these are effective at counteracting degenerative illnesses and cumulative damage, as well as promoting general health and vitality. I do qigong to expedite recovery from weight training and calisthenics. One book I recommend in particular is The Way of Energy, by Lam Kam Chuen, which teaches a basic set of exercises called the Ba Duan Jin ("8 Pieces of Brocade") and gives quite a thorough treatment of Zhang Zhuang (standing meditation.)

Here is Mimi Kuo-Deemer's presentation of Ba Duan Jin.

Better yet, see if you can find a good teacher in your area. It isn't absolutely essential, but a bit of direct instruction can help you keep some beginner's mistakes from becoming bad habits. However, the information I provided is pretty safe for autodidacts, provided you follow the instructions diligently.

I'll do it! I admit to never trying yoga or these techniques.
I once fasted two weeks when i was studying Jesus' walk, that was a great experiment, your stomach cravings calm down and go away after three days(sips of water constantly to keep system happy).
