time for debate: what country has the largest percentage of strong, ripped motherfvckers?

i'm betting on russia or mongolia

I spoke to (an absolutely tanked) guy from poland at the gym before, he says weight lifting is part of their curriculum (I'm talking bench press, deadlifts, squats, olympic lifts etc.) from the age of 14. I would think Poland would at least feature on that list.

I agree with Poland.

Lots of yolked guys, or at the very least super fit guys, over there.

Other than that, I wouldn't doubt America would be somewhere high simply because of the size and population of the country.

And the fact that our culture presses being fit and muscle bound and lean so hard.

yo guys, I have a question:

So in addition to increasing my workout load in the last week, I've gone jogging on off days. I stepped on the scale today and discovered I've gained 2 kilos since last week, without having any diet changes.

How is this possible? Keep in mind I'm trying to LOSE weight and have been eating 500 cals under my recommended amount.

If you want to build muscle you're gonna have to gain weight

but how is it possible that I'm gaining so much weight if I'm eating a lower-calorie diet?
#166
Seconded.

Also, don't worry so much about the weight.

Start weighing once a month, don't get too caught up in numbers. That's the fastest way to get discouraged and off course.

Just stay consistent, keep going to the gym, keep running, keep the diet right, and eventually you'll see results

Use the numbers more to keep track of your progress, not a check up to see if it's working.

Beats me. Bodies are a strange thing. Are you sure the scale is correct, you weighed yourself at a regular time (ie just before breakfast and after bathroom or something like that), you didn't eat anything before, you're not drinking crazy amounts of water etc.

I think it's much easier gaining weight when you're lifting weights as well.

whoops, I forgot I drank about a liter of water this morning
I've been working too much and am not thinking straight.

Still, I suppose I'll just check every other week or so instead. I mean, I've definately not gained any flab weight, so I guess it's all good

Because the human body is funky like that.

You'll lose a pound after you shit, you'll gain two pounds after you eat, you'll stay the same for a few days and then all of sudden gain or lose a couple of pounds.

The less time between weigh ins, the more of a drastic result you'll get.

Because you're weighing more of daily activity/bodily functions, vs if you've actually gained or lost weight.

Focus more on body composition and how you're feeling vs you're actual weight.

Body weight is a funny thing, and it changes a lot based on a lot of different factors.

Weigh in every week, two weeks, or monthly. Do this at the same time, and the same daily routine *before you eat, after you shit, before a shower, ect ect* and then you'll be able to get a more accurate read out on your progress

You could always just not weigh yourself and just use the mirror.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

Happens easy.

I check every time I'm at the gym, but that's more because I have something to do between sets. I only really note the weight once per week, but even then you have to take it with a grain of salt.

Be more concerned with the way you look in the mirror (or in pictures) and your waist size rather than with your total body weight in the scale as such measurement does not distinguish between the amount of fat and muscle that you have.
Most of the time, the trainees asking the questions tell me that they need to lose anywhere between 20-40 pounds. However, I would not be nearly as concerned with the weight as I would be with the way you look in the mirror and your waist size. The reason for that is the fact that as you begin your weight training you will start gaining muscle mass.

As you gain muscle mass you will put weight on. So what will happen here is that while your scale will tell you that you are still overweight and that your weight is not moving, you are actually making progress as you are losing fat and gaining muscle.

Therefore, just concern yourself with the way you look (pictures are a great way to track this) and stop obsessing about your weight.

So I'm going back to karate in about 6-8 weeks and I think it's time to focus more on conditioning so I'm ready to go back. I've been doing some conditioning and low intensity cardio for months but I haven't done that much because I've been focusing on strength. I'm thinking about 2 brief conditioning sessions a week using bodyweight exercises and medicine ball exercises, some kettlebell training and some sprinting. Anybody have experience or opinions on the best way to get your conditioning up?

For conditioning, i use the hell week approach.
That is.
Warm up: 1 mile jog.
10 100 yard sprints.
Lunges for 100 yards at a time
Stadiums
Suicides, going out to 40 yards.
2 mile cool down. (try for a 7:30 pace)

Something like that. Done for 5 days at a time: too much more and you'll start to burn out.

Like the bleachers at a high school football field. Up the stairs, down the stairs, over, up the stairs, down the stairs, repeat however long you want to. Really killer exercise.

On a related note, is uncooked bacon any dangerous?

It'd probably be okay, but it should at least have some crispy parts. Crispy bacon's good brah. Bacon that breaks into millions of pieces when you bite it is not.

EASY way to do this is set your oven to 400 F and put the bacon in there for ~16 min. bacon comes out cooked, not too crispy, but super tasty. i consider myself a bacon connoisseur...

For dinner last night one of my friends made pizza with extra bacon and cheese on top and then cheeseburger wrapped in bacon on top of that.

I also found out that a friend of a friend ate so much meat that he had severe chest pains and had to go to the hospital where he found out that his heart rate had gone up to 140.

In the old thread a few months ago, I went on this rant about how I find that I know a lot of young men who eat way too much meat. It's incidents like this that made me go on that rant.

EDIT: Actually now that I think of it, two nights ago another one of friends ate an entire packet of bacon for dinner. I'm beginning to sense some problems here.

Yeah it's a bit crispy and got some colour. Close enough for me.

Oh and it tastes amazing. I'm gonna bacon-wrap everything from now on. Even bacon.

So after recently going to the doctor I asked about my small range of motion for my ankle joint, and they explained to me the reason for my severely reduced mobility. If you look at the picture below you see how the Talus is rounded and that would allow the above Tibia to move relatively easily? So apparently my Talus is flat as hell. And thats why I can't squat or deadlift at all. She said they might be able to fix this by shaping my Talus a bit. This also explains why stretching never did anything for me. Just thought I shared with you guys.
