    How tired/sore do you get after exercise?

    I never did anything before 3 years ago and use to get sore when I started. Now I get soreness only after a new resistance routine if I go out it but that's it. The right diet, rest and proper conditioning and you can put yourself through anything. A few months ago I started doing 12km before...

    *** Big Fat Weight Loss Thread ***

    Timing and macros definitely matters but not the way most people think. If you run your glycogen low and eat only enough carbs to fill them and no more, they will not lend to fat gain regardless of when you eat. Of course if you are active while digesting, you'll be less likely to fill glycogen...

    *** Big Fat Weight Loss Thread ***

I normally post my update in the Gym rats thread but I'll instead post here and link it as the success story is so much more...

    Weight training charts?

    No posters but I'm PPL and train 6 on 1 off. Each session starts with a few variations of key compound movements for that day and then accessory exercises. I'll change up exercises depending on what injury my body has decided i need to feel. As for which day is what: 1. If my shoulders are...

    Haircut free since first lockdown :o Thanks my dude. Pic is without pump and with only a touch of ab flex but some very generous lighting there to assist (which goes further than any amount of flexing :p) Its been a hell of a road and this month marks the 3 year point since picking up a weight...

    Happy new year my gym bros! From the second lockdown I decided to cut as gyms were closed and trying to bulk seemed fruitless without proper weights. When they opened again, I thought I'd keep it going till Christmas... until gyms closed again. Unfortunately I only have a pic at the 5 week mark...

    The Great Outdoors (Camping, Bushcraft etc...)

    I couldn't see a dedicated camping thread, so decided to start one where people can discuss things like upcoming trips, good places, gadgets/equipment, camping food/cooks and general bushcraft. I love a bit of camping and decided to get a few trips in now that overseas holidays and festivals...

    What's up gym bros? Back to the gym tomorrow! Thought I would check in and show my lockdown progress before I start my second bulk and get chubs again. The pic below was taken mid June. I started the cut early April. I didn't have tons of weight to lose as it was really just fat from my first...

    I walk 8 miles in the morning, doing that fasted will tempt too much muscle loss at my current bodyfat. I think at this point more fat loss is just a bit of a slog. I had a day or two of lax eating but now I'm back on it. My abs are a bit soft but they are there. I'd estimate fat to be 11/12%...

    Ube is a purple yam like thing. Tastes a bit like sweet potato but much sweeter and obviously very purple.

    Evening gym bros. Not sure if I posted my more recent protein sweet cheat on here, so here it is: my Purple power pot! Its basically what I have every morning before my daily walk. Ube flavoured whey cake (my own concoction), ube flavoured meringue, cashew/peanut butter and fromage frais with...

    The **Now Eating** Thread

    A few recent and not so recent cooks. I've been brushing up on my Fillipino cooking with some Siopao as well as some Bao to be filled with adobo (first and last image) I also had a go at whipping up some red velvet Baileys scottish tablet after snatching a few bottles on reduced to clear. The...

    Using the mirror mainly and the odd caliper measurement. The scales have a bf function but I find it pretty inconsistent and trust the mirror more at my current weight.

    Weight loss has slowed all the way down. I've lost a bit of lean mass but happy with results so far considering my limited access to equipment. I'd like to lose a bit more softness, so I am going to carry on with the hope gyms open early july. I'm at the point where the scales wont move but...

    Official Home Gym Building Thread

    That rack looks like a fantastic bit of kit and that price is incredible. I saw a similar and probably far less sturdy set up on fb sponsored results going for about 600+. The steel looked like cheap warehouse shelving unlike yours!

    Despite being quite comfortable in my home routine, I was very relieved to see my local gym post on Instagram advertising the gym recently after a few months of silence. Before things hit the fan, the owner was mulling over whether it was going to be worth waiting out a few months of being...

    I think a change of pace is a great move from time to time. So easy to try and carry on as normal and forget that there is plenty of benefit to changing rep range and training intensity. I may have lost a bit of strength but my body no longer feels like it is crumbling. My shoulder and elbow...

    What's up gym bros? Gyms have been closed for a while. I imagine current events affects training for everyone differently due to differences in kit, free time, goals. I was interested to see how people have gotten on so far with training, if goals have changed, what sort of progress (or lack...

    *** Big Fat Weight Loss Thread ***

    Eating times and macros do not make a huge difference to most people trying to achieve a normal body composition/weight. That said, all calories are not equal and you see this more when you push it to extremes. Your body will get its energy from up to three sources when doing an activity. From...
