Can I Drink Tea? evegrant 11 3 yearsobiepowlowski (1): Hi, I used to drink tea when I was younger, now I drink coffee. I am a coffee-addicted person, however, I know that drinking tea before or after sport is an okay process. It is very good and worth for your body to drink more water/drinks per day especially when you get wet and lose a bit amount of water. I consider that you have to go ahead with this moment and don't worry.

Bouncing Back? livfresh 2 4 yearsjamiee321 (4): Hey :) There are plenty of dairy/gluten/soy free foods you can incorporate into your diet. I personally cannot tolerate gluten or dairy either! My staple gluten free carb sources are sweet potato (baked into fries with cinnamon), quinoa, brown rice and fruit. As for fat and protein sources, I love coconut oil, avocado, nut butters, chicken, salmon, eggs/egg whites and white fish. Also make sure you season your food- otherwise you'll get bored...

Taking Clen Keleigh93 5 4 yearsTedDansen (10): Clen is a really bad idea with the cardio that you're going to be doing. It puts a ton of stress on your heart just by itself, so if you do any kind of intense cardio at the same time you're going to be dealing with thickening of the heart muscles at least, and a heart failure at worst. Better to go with something milder like ephedrine or caffeine. And if you're not losing weight fast enough, drop your calories. All that shit will need to be...

How to fix rounded shoulders airawear 1 4 yearsairawear (4): Full blog post: How To Fix Rounded Shoulders Hey guys, Some of us have been hunching forward for a huge part of our lives because of the way we work.

Macros for cutting VictoriaAlexis1 4 4 yearsWest165 (574): Do a bit of research on leptin and refeeed days. Your body is probably getting used to the drop in calories. 450 calories under isn't as bad as I thought it would be, 1400 calories just seemed a bit low. Then again I'm 60+lbs heavier lol.

Any ladies cutting after reverse diet? Aussie_gal 6 5 yearsAussie_gal (1): Oh no that's bad!!!! This approach to weight and health (reverse dieting and being more balanced and not living in the gym) is new to me and I guess I need someone to hang my faith on that it works..... I hated the diet change but there is stuff online about body types and Layne Norton talks about it too.... Don't u guys rate him at all? Maybe I am a sucker that's paying big bucks for crap coaching. Yeah I think I'm going to quit...

Bulking for women feronica 5 5 yearsA_em (2424): Exactly, just try. The idea of getting stronger instead of focusing on each particular muscle is a very good option! I saw the best results when I focused first on a proper form and then on getting stronger. Eat a lot and lift heavy is something I would advise to each novice female, who is not overwieght. Good luck 💪😉

AVATAR NUTRITION Newbie misslifty 9 5 yearsHamb0 (2893): As @eknight stated, the amount of calories a relative unit/amount of muscle burns per day, is insignificant compared to other functions of the body. Yes, given the same bodyweight, a more muscular person *could* expend more energy than his/her counterpart, but that is only if you completely take other variables and factors out of the equation. The fatter individual might just have a larger extent of energy expenditure from running other bodily...

Not losing weight? barbellbunny 28 5 yearshaole (2109): @ValMadalinski I'll be honest and admit that I don't know much about fat burners but my rule with supplements is that they should all be used sparingly or as little as possible. You should be getting everything you need from your regular diet/food intake. Fat burners are a "shortcut" and might help cut fat but unless that person learns how to keep the fat off then they will be right back to where they started when they get off the...

How long to get visible abs Ernieknowsasecret 7 5 yearsanastasiaova (22): I think it's impossible to say how long it would take for you. If your diet is on point and you're slowly decreasing overall body fat, abs will show up one day :) Also depends on your genetics and where you store fat and where you lose it first/last x

Effect of reverse dieting on metabolism? Lizzy 1 5 yearsLizzy (4): I follow IIFYM and am ready to cut following my first ever reverse (bulk).

I don't necessarily want/need advice on my macros, I've got a decent handle on that part. I am however really confused as to the...

New veins but not feeling lean? barbellbunny 6 5 yearswannabemuscular (33219): Maybe you're carrying a bit of extra water due to female hormones? I find the mid-section is the last to show improvements. Arms and shoulders always come around first.
Advise please! Katapocolypse 20 5 yearsHamb0 (2893): You have most of it right, yea. I'll just explain a few details. Cardio is, strictly put, not necessary to lose weight. A calorie deficit IS necessary though. You can use cardio as a tool to expend extra calories, and create/increase the deficit. From my personal example, when i want to lose weight, i usually add in a little extra cardio, because it allows me to eat more, while im in a deficit. The options for me, would be something like eating...

Much appreciated reading material this morning. @Stuckinplace I understand your frustration. For me it was a hard adjustment on my macros because for the weight loss (100lbs) I experience, it literally was calories in vs calories out. But when I started focusing on weight lifting and weight maintenance, you cannot have a calorie deficit or a carb one for that matter. I'm not like eknight with all the...
Female Chest/Bust exercises julezy97 2 5 yearsA_em (2424): Hey @julezy97! Exercises that come to my mind which could help you attaining your goals are: bench press incline dumbbell bench press flyes reverse flyes push ups I'd go with heavy weights. Apart from them what is the most important to keep your breasts in a good 'shape' is a proper size of the bra (most of the women wear inappropriate size), masaging them regularly with cosmetics, avoiding sleeping on your stomach, and...
Grip Strength Lizzy 16 5 yearsLizzy (4): @chloekypps it's gotten a lot better actually. I've tried a lot of the suggestions (not pole dancing unfortunately) and think I like the plate pinches the most.

Most of the time on pull days it still just hurts but Im sure if I keep at it it'll get better eventually. Building muscle is...

I feel like girls are so crazy about the squats, but there are many other exercises that will help you build nice, round glutes. As mentioned- hip thrusts, lunges, floor work (with ankle weights/resistance bands) focusing on your hamstrings (e. g. donkey kicks, rainbows). I do circuit training on a leg/glute day and I love it.

Trouble cutting for bikini show jnikebb Jump to first page46Jump to last page 6 yearsGetFitGoFigure (121): That is quite a stack for a bikini girl, although... I am very focused in the natural BB realm so, do what your coach says this close to a show. You hired her for a reason! :) Also, note that cutting for a show year after year, if done improperly (ie too fast, too large kcal deficit, not a good reverse etc), can make cutting harder every time. You may be experiencing that effect this time around depending on how you cut, reversed and...

As a beginner that is the only time you can gain muscle AND lose fat. So, nice gains, enjoy it while it lasts. Newb gains only last your first 6-8 months. The only advice I can think of is to maybe decrease your calories just a tad so you lose a little more fat.. I bet your arms look great though if you posted a pic.

PleSe critique deadlift form! Jiaxie97 3 6 yearsLVjack (2749): I watched the video again a couple times and it does look like the bar is staged too far forward on your initial pull. I'm going to assume you press into your toes really hard and your heels slightly raise up though most of the lift. Correct me if I'm wrong. First off I would suggest having a ritual set up that you preform the same each and every time. For example; when I squat I grab the bar with my left and first then my right. Then I...

A week out of being on stage and in conjunction with water manipulation, I've seen some old-schoolers do that, but I don't know if it's the current practice. I know it's difficult to wrap your mind around. I get that it's completely new and crazy to hear, but there is no magical, "better" nutrition plan. There just isn't.

Cutting phase :) MeganRosehart 15 6 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @qtdreams92 I'm sure @OP will be able to take alot from our conversation... The reason i suggest LISS is its easier on the joints, easier to recover from and doesnt effect ur strength as much as HIIT does.. If i'm doing LISS i respond to emails, come on SS and respond to new thread and comment, watch youtube videos on lifting or Podcasts on lifting and nutrition... Easy way to make it productive and less taxing on the body.

Where do I begin? kirchekai25 5 6 yearshollyhopeful5678 (1693): Tilted Kilt?? That's my guess. Great tips already posted, so I'll just add this from my own personal experience. I would separate your plans from your husband. He isn't going to lose his job, so he likely isn't going go give up the wings and pizza. But everywhere that sells wings and pizza also sells salad so don't give him the power to drag you down, you can make your own choices to eat well and exercise even if he doesn't.

If you're maintaining weight and don't feel you're gaining as you want, slowly add calories. Like 100 per week or so. And on the flip side, if you're gaining too fast, pull back on the calories a bit or add more cardio. Oh, and nice midsection!

First time cutting evymk 8 7 yearsT1no1 (478): @evymk you probably dont lose weight because you have always eaten ~1500cal so your body got used to it and your maitenance is at 1500 while it should be at 2000 what calculators say. Everyone is different. The only option i see is to increase your maintenance level by slowly increasing calorie intake(kind of reverse dieting) with minimum/no weight gain and after that try cutting when your maintenance is higher. This will takesome time..

Your body has adapted to using so little calories for the vast amount of work you do that you'll just stop losing weight. It's not really beneficial to diet past 12-16 weeks, as your metabolism adjusts to that degree and you'll stay at a loss plateau or start GAINING fat. Body pump doesn't involve progressive overload I'm guessing. If you don't constantly challenge your muscles with higher and higher weight,...

Are bruises normal? almighty_she 25 8 yearsOptimusPrime (1257): @almighty_she Is it normal? Yes and no. It's more prevalent in women and is often directly correlated to anemia; in your case, probably an iron deficiency resulting from menstruation coupled with a vitamin deficiency. And if you have a high caffeine intake, that too could/would contribute. Take your vitamins, stay hydrated. I'd say 'don't sweat it', but you could always go get a blood test to zero in on the root causes.

Questions???? kelly123 5 8 yearsFiremanSi (42408): You can loose weight if ur just in a caloric deficit. But as @dwatson & @the1 said adding cardio and weight training will definately speed up those results. Toning is basically a scam that companies used to take advantage of naive gym goers. U can build muscle or burn fat and if ur a beginner as u say u are u can do a little of both. Good luck and let us know if u need any more help.

Rebound-effect ftw.

Women simply don't have enough testosterone to build mass amounts of muscle unless your hardcore in your supplementing, dieting and working out.

You can do full body/circuit type workouts and still keep the intensity high if you are worried about not having intense enough workouts. Although if you lift heavy enough, it will probably be pretty intense anyway. For HIIT, I would recommend trying 15-20 seconds all out sprint to a 40-45 second rest. Repeat at least 10 times.

work appropriate fitness pictures Julia232 10 9 yearsAnef06 (130): I think the 4 guidelines you posted have you on the right track. My brother-in-law and niece are both models and my brother is into professional body building. They are very diligent in any pictures they post due to the nature of their fulltime jobs. Personally, I don't post anything without my husbands approval. Not that I need it, nor does he enforce such a standard. I respect the fact I'm his wife and his opinion is all that matters to me....
Quick Lifting Question Amy0582 7 9 yearseknight (58109): Yeah, I get that. When I was competing I was a little more adamant/obsessive about it as well. Just don't beat yourself up over it if you actually do miss one every once in a while. Glad to see you found a happy medium. -EK
just a little help? rose 2 9 yearseknight (58109): Determine your BMR. Stay at those maintenance kcals, with a 30% protein/50% carb/20% fat ratio. Begin doing an upper/lower weight training split 2-3 times per week on nonconsecutive days and start with 12-15 minutes of HIIT on off days, building up to 25 minutes. -EK

Confused on dieting/training help please! Misseuro 13 9 yearsAmy0582 (373): I have been using the training program and diet suggestions in the ultimate female training guide (AprilR posted a link). I am on my second month of this and both my husband and I have seen major changes in my body already! Unfortunately you can't spot reduce fat but I would suggest HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) followed by low to medium intensity cardio. This is also explained in that article. I am doing this 4 days a week and I also...
Belly Fat :( TrainEatSleep 11 9 yearsAnef06 (130): Agreed @Determined1. No need for isolation exercises. Stick to the basic compound movements. Seriously you will get better results and a decent base. Your body will grow with these movements alone (PLUS a decent diet of course) @Thor - I agree. Women tend to exaggerate our flaws. 5 kgs around the stomach is excessive. Either she's over estimating her problem or there's something wrong. Can't tell without seeing. That's why I asked how she...

carb cycling?? squeakytoy 18 9 yearssohail92 (271): Why make things complicated with carb cycling? Its simple if you want to lose weight/fat drop your daily calorie intake by 500cals from your maintenance level. If you do that I 100% guarantee you will lose weight, probably at about 1lb~ per week. I totally agree with EK and MrMailliw, stop making it complicated and just experiment with your daily calorie in take until you get a steady and controlled weight loss.

Feeling frustrated - need help/reassurance! sunshine 12 9 yearsAnef06 (130): I agree about getting rid of the scales. It unnecessarily adds stress when you see numbers going up or down and is never a real indication of what is happening in your body. I hardly ever weigh myself and go by what I see in the mirror. I weigh at least 4-5 kilo more than I did a year ago, but am 2-3 dress sizes smaller. Keep training hard and heavy. Weight fluctuations will come and go (water retention/that time of the month/heavy carb load one...

Outer arm workouts BrittinieStark 22 9 yearseknight (58109): Awesome. I wasn't trying to be a jerk, but under 10% is pretty uncommon for a woman. I've been in the fitness industry for a loooooong time, and I'm dubious any time a woman makes a claim like that unless it's accompanied by, "why am I no longer having my cycle." -EK
stomach fat/skinny fat tafana 4 9 yearsknockout2281 (181): @mikew pretty much hit the nail on the head in his post. Although in his section on cheat meals on the weekends...don't use that as an excuse to binge. @cassious is also on point with the sprinting. Sprinting or any kind of HIIT will engage more muscle to encourage more fat burning after your workout in comparison to just jogging. The evidence for the results of jogging versus sprinting can be seen in the builds of sprinters vs. cross country...

Keep The Drive Alive: Ultimate Female Fitnes Jusu 1 9 yearsJusu (618): Should be named "Wanking material for hardcore lifters". All of those women are awesome and I'd bang every single one of them if I got a chance. What do you guys think about those pics. IMO they're more like porn than motivation pics. And that's why I like them. They give me motivation that if I achieve shredded cunt body someday I will also able to get chicks like that.

Lean Muscle and Calories kebauer26 3 9 yearsMrMailliw (4494): I doubt any home scales will give an accurate reading of BF%. As a woman, 1g /lb BW is plenty in terms of protein, not so sure about the other macros, would help if you knew your maintenance calories.

And, next to diet I am still having trouble getting enough cardio in. But I am still shedding weight...
