how do i make my ass and legs smaller?

(srs question)


File: 859e4af50d2deaf⋯.jpg (49.45 KB, 500x667, 500:667, 859e4af50d2deafd6a0fd5752f….jpg)

Atrophy. Don't work them out.


Do work them out.

It all depends on what they're made out of. Is it fat, or muscle? Either way, you should work them out. If it's muscle, then you've squatted too many reps with too light weight.



Are you retarded?

Never mind, I already know the answer to that.

Getting stronger inevitably gives you bigger muscles. While the ratio of muscle to strength varies, that fact is indisputable. Even the super light weight dudes in weightlifting are ripped as fuck and have preddy big muscles for their bodyweight.

Of course, working out might indeed make your ass smaller by making you lose weight due to a higher TDEE, but make no mistake. This is a secondary effect of working out, not an effect of you working your legs out more.



>Getting stronger inevitably gives you bigger muscles.

Not if you transition from high reps to low reps, since that can improve the muscle density more than it builds the muscle, making the muscle smaller.

Not taking creatine, and not taking steroids, is another possible factor. …or even TAKING steroids, depending on if it's fat you're dealing with or not. If you take oestrogen blockers, the first place where fat is going to disappear from, would be the ass and thighs.

…so maybe that's the actual problem here: The guy has taken testosterone, and now he's full of oestrogen. Maybe he should stop taking steroids. Who knows? I know that *I*'m 40, and that I have such a tight ass that you could bounce a ping-pong ball off of it. …so I know that a big ass sure isn't an age thing - not for men. Instead I have this terrifying belly. Does OP have a belly? Is OP a woman? Who knows?

So I've noticed I've gained a lot of weight in the past few months and I want to lose it. So I decided to start out by lifting two 40lbs dumbbells but I'm strapped for cash and my mom won't give me the $20-30 I need. She never has a problem giving me money for food but when it comes to important shit (my driver's license, I.D., a working phone etc.) she just drags her feet or flat out refuses and it's really pissing me off. What do?

Hello, I am Principal Donald.

I would like to create a fitness course for our /school/, and I would like to consult you on how we can get people fit.

Currently, in the school curriculum, I asserted that for each week, our students will get 3 2-hour P.E. lessons.

List of things to gather info about:

1. Workout for beginners (no expensive equipment)

2. Information about dieting to put on our textbooks

3. How to enhance the body (for a potential year 2 course)

Have a look at >>>/school/15 and tell me what you think.

Kill youself.




Depends on your goals. If you want to be able to lift heavy objects or bodybuild, yes, you'd want a gym.

The average person hardly knows that they have lats. They can make a ton of gains on bodyweight: body awareness, coordination, balance, strength, flexibility.

>I got a snapping hip syndrome on both legs

Maybe you've had a predisposition or went too heavy too fast. That's nothing you hear of commonly.



/leftypol/, you and /liberty/ will have an elective class in the Politics department, be patient.



Year Two is for workouts with more expensive equipment.

Year One needs to be easily done, equipment must be cheap and work must be low to medium effort to build up satisfaction.

How does a fat fuck like me with no real muscle mass, stamina, and a ton of body fat start exercising without going into cardiac arrest? Is there any hope at this point? Last time I tried going for a jog, i threw out my lower back because my fat ass is too top heavy.

Am I at there a point of no return?

What TM said is is great advice… In the morning walked to and from the gym(1mile & half from home), although I did use the treadmills for 25 minutes as soon as I was in, then hour and a half of intensive lifting, with "breaks" every 3 weeks when I lower the weight and did lots of reps for 3 or 4 days. Also started boxing 3 times a week at night. I´ll spare you the details,but I did went from 420+ pounds to 195 pounds, stopped using my apnea machine and could see my prick again.


Just a passerby here. I haven't checked the sticky in a while. Is there some good resource specifically for the obese beginner on how not to bust their knees trying to jog?

OP, I was obese once about 4 years ago. Don't give up. Fitness can be yours forever. I'm proud of you, friend.



>Is there some good resource specifically for the obese beginner on how not to bust their knees trying to jog?

Yeah, don't fuckin jog. Exercise bike, rowing machine, swim. Maybe elliptical. As a fat fuck beginner, I found that an actual bicycle was too hard and offered far higher resistance than the exercise one, to the point of being impossible, because of having to propel 400+ pounds up the slightest hill. My chain also broke from the stress and I popped a tire. Get a gym membership and use their machine.


File: 4e8f2db34a2cf90⋯.jpg (144.36 KB, 678x960, 113:160, The Cycle.jpg)


400 lbs? Damn, I don't have it that bad.


Thanks bud. I'll do my best!

I signed up for my local gym, $15/month is a ton cheaper than the usual fast food bills I used to pay every week. I still gotta meet up with the fitness trainer to learn how to use the machines, I'm gonna ask about exercises to strengthen my back.

I've been using the elliptical machine a at the gym these past two mornings with the resistance at 5 (not sure how far up they go) and the "soft hills" setting. I can handle 30 min, but I end up soaked in sweat and a tiny bit light headed, but It wasn't unpleasant if that makes any sense. The lower-back pain that I usually have didn't get any worse, so I think its manageable. Still, while on the elliptical, deep down inside my mind I knew a man should never ever EVER be in this weak pathetic state. I don't want to be a slave to instant gratification and fatfuck shit anymore, I gotta claw myself out of this state.

Pic related: The thought inside my mind.

Manuel, you?


I was always a shitty runner and now finally have the real possibility to change it. Question to the actual runners: how good was your progress on the very beginning of your training? Few years ago I was gaining 30 seconds every running session (at speed ~10 km/h and few minutes of running without pauses), yesterday I did ~300 meters at ~10 km/h, returned on the start walking and again did 300 meters running. I'm sure with that approach extra 300 meters running+300 meters walking back every training session (3 times a week) is what I can realistically expect next few weeks. Do you guys agree?



What do you take? I'm making zero progress. It's all lactic acid and gasps for breath and screams of agony for me, and that's just me WALKING. Coffee is a must, and I've tried taking beta-alanine for it for a week now, and it doesn't do much for me, and baking soda is the next step, but I'm wondering:

Is there something even better?



this >>1871 is what I'm doing right now. It's a good amount of progress while still being realistic.



I started jogging this morning. Normally I roller blade but my rolling buddy couldn't make it and taking the bus to the city to roll alone didn't sound like fun (my local area is awful for roller blades). For the first 20 or so minutes it was as you say, my heart hurt, my breathing was uneasy and I had to stop frequently to walk. After that though the pain ceased and I was much more able to control my breathing. I did 30 more minutes after that with only one short walking break.

Basically, keep at it and adjust your form. Persistence is key, as well as good eating. I had oats + milk + a banana for breakfast one hour before jogging. You're going to make it swedecuck.

How does one get to a place in life where they find themselves posting shit nobody reads with a trip on an unpopular board on a knockoff chan?



Well, it takes lots of failure, son. You wouldn't believe just how hard one has to fail at life, to get to this point. I mean just look at DSP: He has a job. He earns money. He has a young girlfriend. He has a car, I think. You would have to eclipse DSP, and just keep going, forever and ever, and then maybe, one day, would will reach that mythological peak of failure, where I'm at.

Just think about it: When you avoid looking at the bathroom mirror every time you go in there, afraid of the sheer shame that you'll feel over even looking at yourself.

It takes skill, son. It takes lots of skill and effort. …but yet somebody's got to be The One, who everybody looks down to - that warning example of what not to do, and who not to become - that shining beacon of horror. Look at me, 8chan! Look at me in all my glory, my small, limp dick, my fat belly overshadowing it, and my wrinkly old-man skin that will never ever get to touch a woman ever again! This is what it means to reach the top!



I don't even have to read what you wrote to know what you wrote you're like one of those pull string toys. Man the fuck up you little bitch.




Answer honestly here: Can somebody who hasn't seen the inside of a gym until he's 37, really be called a "man"? My stomach is touching my legs, for Pete's sake! That's not a man. That's a "little" man-bitch. If I want to become a man, I have to earn it, and for me it's most likely too late. All I can do, is to become as CLOSE to a man as possible. An imitation, like some kind of posing transsexual.

Very impressive


The story of how food proccessing companies conspired to trick americans to give up butter and replace butter (saturated fats) with inferior and cheaply made PUF and MUF sources was a fascinating read. It was an eye-opening story on how companies preyed upon the ignorance of a populace in the mid 20th century when nutritional science was still relegated to chemists. After that worked, replacing the populace's traditional diet and other foods was easy.

Also, saturated fats mix better with foods and activate vitamin d3 easier. Only oils/fats I use now are butter, virgin coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and fish oil as a supplement. But I use butter the most and organic milk for my shakes.



I use butter, MCT oil, and homemade 48 hour creme fraiche mostly, though I do eat walnuts sometimes.

The creme fraiche is fermented for 48 hours to destroy all the lactose, which is already a fairly small amount.



Walnuts are good stuff. Good for snacking and getting some extra choline.

I needed new protein powder so I go to labdoor because muh purity. I noticed they have a soy-free filter and I'm like fuck yeah soy is shit so I'm going to check that box. Then I see only three powders are left and two are for vegans.

What gives? Is this some kind of joke? Why are protein powder makers adding soy when they're already using whey?

Just make a powder that's 100% whey, add the amino acids, add stevia, and you're done. What's so hard about that? Is this some kind of insidious plot to force whey protein users to eat soy?

Whey is much cheaper than eating steak everyday



You don't buy ground beef from the butcher or other bulk purchases that you break up into smaller portions? It doesn't seem like much but that stuff is pretty filling.



>sugar is bad meme

Listen up, nigger. Carbs are quintessential in the Kreb cycle, which is the biochemical process of releasing stored energy, or burning off fat. Your body needs to produce a molecule called acetyl-CoA. Acetyl-CoA is made of a combination of amino acids (what protein is made of), pyruvic acid, and fat. Pyruvic acid is synthesized through the process of glycolysis, or the conversion of glucose (sugar) to pyruvic acid. If you lack carbohydrates, your body converts some types of amino acids to glucose via gluconeogenesis. It's not only making fat burning more difficult by not consuming sugar, but it's stealing the basic building blocks of protein and therefore your gains.



>adding stevia

You idiot. Now you're just consuming xenoestrogens.

>It's probably soy lecithin, which is an emulsifier (helps the powder dissolve in the water). It's a byproduct of soy, and as far as I can tell it doesn't have any of the downsides of actual soy protein.

Can confirm that this post is on the right track. Except soy lecithin still has problems, arguably those problems are worse than soy protein. The real problem in this case is that it's actually Labdoor's fault, and I'm even thinking of emailing them about this. It turns out that almost every protein powder uses a form of lecithin as an emulsifying substance and Labdoor created a false positive situation with its soy-free filter.

As for lecithin itself:


> Lecithin is an emulsifying substance found in the cells of all living organisms. It was discovered in 1806 by Maurice Gobley, a French scientist who named it lekithos after the Greek word for egg yolk Lecithin can be found in many foods including cabbage, cauliflower, garbanzo beans, soy beans, split peas, organic meat, seeds and nuts, but the best source by far is eggs. Until it was recovered from the waste products of soybean processing in the 1930s, egg yolk was the primary source of commercial lecithin. Today most lecithin supplements derive from soybeans, though a sunflower lecithin is also available.

In the case with my protein powder, they use sunflower lecithin as its emulsifier, but Labdoor is being stupid and identifies any lecithin as soy lecithin. Once you click the soy-free filter, it removes all of them except a couple of vegan ones and surprisingly one that also says sunflower lecithin. So what's the difference between soy lecithin and other types of lecithin?
