Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
@INNASKILLZ2K20 I'm not being so technical about it. I'm just ripping some muscles and they are hurting, I'm eating more than I need to and watching myself get stronger and fatter. Last night I put a bunch of hamburger meat into a pan, cracked 6 big eggs into it and that was dinner. My body just absorbed it all without complaints. I felt a bit thirsty this morning but otherwise fine. So that isn't what I'm normally doing but it's working fine for now. I wouldn't mind finishing next Summer with 3-4 pounds more muscle and still being able to run. I could easily drop like 2 pounds of fat as well and I'd be very strong for a not huge guy.
It was my first time taking a song seriously. I consider it my first "real song".
I never played piano before and had to learn it while also making the song. (I used it to program the orchestra)
Also not to mention the whole production side of things. Very complicated for me to make a good sounding mix.
This year I plan to take music way more seriously.
I'll be making more and post them here for ya'll.
@destraht Yeah brother, I hate cardio machines.
So much about fitness/lifting is finding what works for you. IMO, it's exposing yourself to all the different advice/programs/'science' etc and pulling together what suits you.
Like, for me I hate getting fat. Some guys can do the big bulk, put on lots of body fat but stay the course long enough to put on muscle, then shred.
If you can say 'it's winter, fuck it I'm going to bulk', that's awesome if you like doing by the Winter season and can stick it out.
For me, ALL my fat goes straight to my stomach. It's a fucking bitch. I can't do the higher body-fat bulk, because my stomach bloats like a motherfucker and I just feel like shit.
So this time, I am taking @Whiteindia's advice.
I'm going to get down to AT LEAST 15%bf (hopefully more). Then very very slowly add calories, adjusting if I'm putting too much body fat on.
Hopefully I can hit 3100 calories a day whilst still being in the teens for bf.
Then I'm going to cycle bulking with 'leaning out' periods. Bulk for a little, then when my bf has risen...drop to like a -100 deficit and shed some body-fat whilst still eating enough to maintain muscle or even build a little.
Hopefully I can stay lower in bf this way, or have wiggle room to not go over 20%.
I have absolutely no idea if you give a fuck about any of that, lmao. But I was almost finished writing so kept going.Read More
@INNASKILLZ2K20 I'm bulking now because I can't run since there is slippery ice everywhere. It just makes sense to pass the time in Winter by eating more. I would die of boredom putting in 30-45 minutes on a cardio machine. 10-15 minutes is all that I can bare.
@tchower yeah, I'm cutting down a bit again.
I got down to 18%bf, but didn't track my bulk and put on fat way too fast.
Fucking sucks. Can't wait to bulk again. Slowly this time.
But yeah, you look big and....thick #NOFUCKINGHOMO
I can't find any non gay way to say that last bit.
