  1. Hi All, First time posting here. So I have found myself in a bit of a dilemma. I am almost 23 years old, currently weigh 86.1KG or 190LB for some of you and I am around 178CM or 5'10'' probably at 18 - 20% Body fat now. My relationship with the gym has been very complicated I have been on and off with it since I was 17, I would stop going to gym when I was happy with how I looked in the mirror and this has been going on for the last 5 - 6 years. So, I kind of know my ins and outs with it. I have had a good physique before around 10-12% bodyfat, but I recently let mysel
  2. Hi, I am 6foot (1.82m) and 168pounds (76kg). I live in the Southern hemisphere and just like game of thrones winter is coming. I have been training for roughly a year now and have grown quite stronger with basic equipment and body weight training (From benching 66pounds (30kg) to benching roughly 200pounds (90kg)) all thanks to nerd fitness! Now I am at a cross roads for you see, I am still quite small and lean, even though I have become stronger. The platform has been laid and I have decided to do my first ever BULK.... which in turn led to a LOT of questions. Most of these questions I search
  3. Hi, guys! Hope the weekend is treating you all well! I have a question: How do you know how much you're supposed to weight? I'm 5'7". In high school I weighed about 185 lbs, and I was fairly fit. Not built, just fit. Right now I'm 26, same height, and last time I weighed myself I was 207 (down from 215 woohoo!). How do I know how much I'm supposed to weigh? I'm also interested in building my upper body muscle (or I guess everywhere on my body), and I know muscle weighs more than fat. Tips? Also, I'm doing the beginner's body weight workout. Is this a good step in the right direction if
  4. Hey Rebels! I've been on and fallen off the fitness wagon for a few years now, and I've finally found my motivation. I'm a weekend LARPer, my character has enormous strength, and I want to be able to do that in real life. I've always had trouble putting on weight and gaining muscle mass, so I'm here to get serious. Any tips for someone one who was born an elf start building her strength?
  5. Hello to everybody, I am sure you can help here with my trouble: I want to put a bit of weight on (5-7 kilos) as a part of my fitness plan. I'll be starting the beginner's workout next week (i've been doing "a mile a day") and I want to eat more calories, to help to build muscle while not loosing weight. I eat an average of 1500 cal. a day, I've been eating paleo for a year and a half now, and I was thinking I could start by adding 300 calories a day, because it would be easy to do it by simply taking a shake: coconut milk, egg yolk and some fruit. But, are 300 calories enough to start? An
  6. Hey guys, Doing the keto thing here, and it does of course work. However, I'm at a point where I think I need to start building some muscle. Now, I know the basic rules: 1g protein per pound of lean body mass, lift heavy, eat more calories than you burn, etc., but I'm confused about a few things. First, some one once told me that carbohydrates act as a transport mechanism to get protein into a muscle cell for repair post workout. Is that actually correct, and if so, HOW MUCH carbohydrates do you need, in general? Would a normal keto diet of, say, ~60g of carbs per day be enough, or do I ne
  7. So I'm new here, hello! Love the site! I'm 5'6", about 185, body fat percentage of about 23-25%, so definitely overweight but not visibly obese. My weight distribution on my body is just weird. Had a personal trainer for a year, but realized after going through these articles that most of his guidance and advice were just plain wrong (we would do strength training, and then he'd tell me to go burn 500 calories in cardio, and apparently that was all wrong). I have slight muscle definition in my arms, and I've been told by numerous trainers and fitness specialists that I have great leg muscle de
