I know this sound super dumb but I don’t know anything about nutrition. I’ve been working out for a year and have been making great process but would be in a much better place if I knew how to diet and nutrition properly. I’ve been drinking the strawberry protein workout and eating a chunky strawberry energy bowl for lunch probably like 4 times a week for work and I’m hoping I’m not just killing away my exercises or anything because I know nutrition can hurt your development pretty badly.
They advertise it as healthy and there’s soy protein in it so im assuming it’s good for me. I hope I’m assuming correctly. Thanks again!
I am exercising on a rhythm of 3 days exercise and one day break. I do mostly cardio, squats and eat healthy,with just a tinky winky drop of olive oil. But I noticed that the fat on my love handles are still present but I lost a massive amount of ass mass and my arms are becoming skinnier. Is it normal??
I started off with 5lbs then it became really light so I started to do curl ups with a 15lb dumbbell 30 mins/every day from Mon-Fri & it’s pretty heavy but not that much. I have a 35lb dumbbell and I can only do one curl up with it....literally. But is 15lbs enough to see any results? I’m 5’6, 196lbs & 16
So a little background, I am a male, 5’9, and 21 yrs old. I started going to the gym about a month ago(may 16th) when I was 103kg with high bf%.
I didnt really know what to do for the first 2 weeks. But I decided to just do SL 5x5 because I’ve read that when you have high bf% and is a beginner mostly anything will work. But Is this true? My goal is to cut some fat and gain some muscle at the same time.
I’m currently on my 4th week of SL. And my lifts are as follows:
Squat: 140lb Bench: 80lb Row : 60lb Press: 40(I find it really hard to do this to be honest) Deadlifts: 140lb And some bicep curls every workout to work my arms.
I am eating about 2200 Calories daily(I use myfitnesspal and this is the goal it gave me for losing weight), with a lot of protein. Am I doing this correctly? Should I just change my routine? Should I consume less calories?
I wanted to know about some good youtubers/youtube channels that you follow for gaining knowledge about gym exercises (what different exercises people do, what is the correct posture and form, some basic concepts of weight training) to make sure that you are doing it right.
What channels do you follow for getting info about diet - that covers making quick and healthy meal and focuses on eating healthy.
