Stalled Weight Loss!

Hi everyone! I’m fairly new to the forums so forgive me if this is redundant. I’ve been working out 4-5 days a week and do cardio 2-3 times a week. When I first started my cut, I lost a total of 10lbs and have seen my body transform. Within the last month though, my weight loss has stalled...

Smile OFFICIAL Cutting Support Thread (Oh noez, not the evil C word!) (no emo)

Hurrow everyone. Thought I would start one of these. We have a bulking thread, and I figure that after all the winter months, there are most likely others (like me) working on cutting down some. So I guess I thought it'd be cool if we posted our progress here. :) Pics are always a bonus as well!...

Back on track

Hi there, I've been away for a while, I stopped lifting 2 years ago but missed it so much that I'm back to the gym for 2 weeks now. I bought a custom workout plan from an online trainer, but tbh I'm not really sure it's a solid routine for me. I'm 5'3", 118 pounds, trying to bulk after losing...

Trusting the Process

I've been on a pretty strict diet and in an even stricter mindset for a few years now- spinning my wheels, not really ever improving my composition per se. I'm 6ft tall, and am usually 138 lbs. but am now currently 143. It's hard to not pay attention to the scale, and rather focus on strength gains...

Question Lifting with stomach ache?

I came home for summer break around 3 weeks ago and from then until August I'll need to keep my training routine to 3-4 times a week because of time constraints. I feel like this isn't enough because I have more energy, just not enough time. This week I've only gone 3 times and I have time to go...

Do not bulk unless under 20% BF???

What are your opinions on this "rule of thumb" that I have come across several times. I am currently cutting and have been since mid January but do not think I'm going to make it to below 20% by June which I was hoping to be the end of my cut. I don't think it will be beneficial for my long term...

Any of you ladies use/have used DHEA?

Hi girls! I was curious if any of you weight trainers out there have gotten good results from using DHEA. It sounds like a highly beneficial product and especially for me because I tend to have some anxiety/depression, and "fog" if you know what I mean lol...brain fog haha! Anyhow, let me know if...

3 day a week lifting program for my wife? Help!

My wife has been losing weight for the past few months and she's doing a decent job, but she's been really unmotivated to hit the gym lately. I think it's partly because she has no real program in place, she just kind of "goes through the motions". I'm looking for a solid 3x a week program...

scale/measurements not budging

Hi guys, I originally had a thread on here that seems to be gone. It was regarding "body fat percentage". 3 months ago I had a DEXA scan and was at 34% bf. I am female, 37, currently 121 lbs (started at 127lbs) and 5'4''. I decided to do a 10lb cut by lifting regularly and consuming 1250 cals...

Question What to do?

So far I have been working out for 6 weeks and started out at 27.1 bf. I was at 23.4 two weeks ago when I got my scan. I added cardio almost every day to my routine after lifting.

Question Accuracy of body fat scales/machines at the gym?

Hey everyone. I’m a woman who looks lean in person, and has no bulges, love handles, etc. I’ve had my fat tested as a nutrition shop with a scanner, and I’ve come up at 22%. I’m fine with that. I’ve also had it done at the gym on a scale which checks body fat, and wow! It said I was 28.8%. That...

Short of the DEXA scan, what are some ways to figure out muscular imbalances?

I’ve been told that these scans give you accurate information on where you have muscle weaknesses. I like the way I look, but sometimes I’m unsure as to whether or not something should be stronger (back, trunk, etc). I know this test gives you results which pinpoint fat and muscle. EDIT: I guess...
