  1. Hi everyone, I made a post in the New to Fitness section asking some general questions about my diet and exercise in relation to losing body fat and got some great advice, but I have some specific questions that are best suited here. First off, I am 22, male, 6', and weight 155 lbs. My BMI is 21, and my BMR is 1741 (according to My Fitness Pal). I do HIIT 3 times a week, and lift 2 days a week (full body, no splits yet). My HIIT session is difficult for me, and takes about 15 minutes. The lifting session takes me about 1.5 hours, sometimes less if I go harder. I have started tracking
  2. Hello All, New here, but a frequent "lurker". I am not sure where this post belongs as it has a few questions, both in relation to wanting to lose body fat but also my lifting/exercise. I am looking to lose weight 23y/o about 5"4 - not sure about weight or bf% atm (last weigh I was 70-72kg). I was following a keto diet up until recently I realised it made my binge-eating really bad and generally, I just wasn't happy. Now I am kinda just eating "primal" (i.e mainly fruit and veg) but also kinda just letting myself have a treat now and then, and not berating myself over it... 80/20.. making
  3. Life has been quite a mess the past few months. Its time to clean shit up! Here's a quick recap: Earlier this year I started having problems with depression which derailed my entire life from home to work to the gym. I got some good help (therapy and meds), and now I'm getting back on track. I was able to complete the last challenge and get back into several of my old habits. I've also started on the 20 lbs. PvP weight loss challenge. Main Goal: Maintain and refine the habits gained from the last challenge and lose body fat. This challenge I'll be focussed on cutting and fat loss, main
  4. I can see a plateau looming with my weight loss in the next month or two, and I want to prepare for what it takes to drop BF% after that. Apparently bulking and cutting is the way to go, so what's your best introduction site/article/how-to for those of us new to it? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello Warriors! This will be my first warrior challenge and I am very excited to be picking things up and putting them down! Here are my goals: 1. Complete Oly lifting intro classes (3/6 already done) and design/begin oly program 2. Finish my 5k series (all Fridays in April, 2 down [44:12, 39:07] 2 to go) get time below 35:00 3. Keep up with clean eating and logging food (weekends optional) and keep taking body measurements 1x/week 4. Go to yoga at least once a week and try at least 2 strongman sessions Life goal: Keep a gratitude journal, write one thing per day - this will probably be m
  6. Guys! Guys. Guys and ladies. I barely ever visit this part of the forum because I forgot it exists. But now I remember, and I have to brag. Today I finished my first (intentional) weight loss program. Effing eff yeah. I went from 21% to 12% bodyfat in around 9 weeks. Progress photos below, stripey undies brought to you by my sense of humor. Relaxed Flexed Can I get a highfive??!!
  7. Hey - really basic question here, from someone nowhere near the point where she needs to know the answer, but who has been wondering nevertheless. I've been reading heaps about cutting and bulking on Nerdfitness, and I'm wondering ... is this something that is necessary, once a certain amount of exercise/bodyfat percentage is reached? My goal is not necessarily building the largest amount of muscle possible, but I do intend to get to 17% bodyfat eventually. My workouts/exercise will be, for the forseeable future, bodyweight workouts, to increase proficiency at parkour and, starting Januar
  8. I was sitting around this weekend thinking about the cut I'm currently in, and got curious as to how others approach their cutting periods when it comes to training. I've heard some people switch over to an "intensity mode" replacing their standard strength training with HIIT type workouts. There is also the group that keeps their workouts exactly the same during the length of the cut. At this point, I've fallen into the the latter group; however, I have added more cardio than usual (walks during lunch and a weekly 3mi run w/ sprints for the hell of it). I know diet is the key factor
  9. Hi Everyone, I've been trying desperately for years and years to lose the excess body fat on me, everytime I've tried I've made progress for 2 or 3 weeks then I turn back to junk food and gain back all the weight I've lost plus some more :-( Well now I want to put an end to that, I've been doing Starting Strength for the past year and weightlifting for the past 2 years or so. I've been dabbling with Intermittent Fasting since April (whilst still eating junk food so my results haven't been good at all). This is my battle log to help track my progress, keep myself accountable, and hopefully ins
  10. Main quest: Climbing, climbing, and more climbing. My main exercise for the last year has been bouldering, and I honestly do view everything else as filler to help myself get stronger, more flexible, or more in shape for climbing. Despite that, I've spent the last two challenges chasing shiny things and doing "side adventures" only tangentially connected to my main goal of climbing. About 2 months ago, I successfully climbed my first V3. Since then, I've reached a point where I can generally complete the V2s, and I completed another couple of V3s (all balance based routes with crimpy hol
  11. At the moment I'm not sure whether I should go for bulking or cutting in the next challenge. Since April I've been eating healthy and controlled amounts and have lost some weight. Currently I'm 75kg (165lbs) but with a BF percentage of 37%. My weight is good for my height (BMI 24) but I clearly carry too much fat. I also have basically no muscles. In the last challenge I've set a goal to get to 5 proper form push-ups and and training specifically for that for 6 weeks I'm still not able to 1 really proper push-ups (but getting closer). So, I have two goals: 1. Lose body fat 2. Get strong
  12. Its cuttin time. Next stop: For the duration of the challenge I'll be cutting in the 1.0-1.2 lb/wk area. This is going to be an open ended cut, the object being to cut to the 8% BF area, no visible fat without becoming freaky veiny. And tanning. Lots of tanning. It time to reveal all the muscle I've built in the last year. About 20 lbs worth if my estimates are right. Goals: 1) Learn To Use My Left Pinkie Toe - I have pretty much zero control over it right now, in fact it often goes the wrong way when I try to use it on its own. My right side doesn't have this issue at all. I believe th
