Pretty much any exercise should be good for your metabolism. I've always assumed cardio of pretty much any type would burn more fat than weight training. Of course, both types have different benefits, and for full effect, you'd need both. That's a good reason for me trying to introduce myself to anaerobic training.

I've never had to worry about fat though. Are you more interested in getting more mass, or losing fat?
gaining mass, definitely, i lift three days a week

before i started working out i was getting chubby, but most of that fat is gone now

i mostly do cardio to keep my heart and lungs healthy, but also to make sure i don't get too chubby again

(note: i was never actually that chubby, i just nipped the problem in the bud before it became too noticeable)

Awesome man! I'm definitely getting more motivated these days. The harder I work out the better I feel about myself! I'm starting to get addicted to pumping the iron hah.

Are the Creatine,Casein or NO3 supplements any good?

I've tried Body Fortress's powdered Whey Protein,Mix1's protein shake and Met-Rx Protein Plus Bars. Which have been working pretty well for me. I've been taking FlaxSeed EFA supplements too.

I recommend "Animal Pack". Has like 1000 times your daily vitamins and shit, and "NOEXPLODE" for preworkout.

I started to in high school because it was required for gym glass and the sports I was in.

Quit for a while after. Got back into it because I love doing it.

Does it matter what you do with your legs while doing bench press?

I know it's probably best to have knees bent feet on the floor or straight out? I'm short and don't always reach the floor but does it even matter what your legs are doing? Sometimes I stick them straight out, bending at the hip for no reason, just cuz I feel like it lo. Does it affect anything? I know form's important but idk what my legs have to do with that exercise.

"Chemical widely used in antibacterial hand soaps (and toothpaste) may impair muscle function".... this article popped up, right after I ranted about the drug in the Med Thread.
Best advice would be to stop using it, or any other product that contains Triclosan. Maybe use it once week under the nails, and rinse quickly - this stuff kills bugs fast, and loves to bypass the oil on your skin to get into the blood stream.

i've seen my dad do this occasionally, it could work for you

just bench the barbell to try it first to make sure if it works for you

Ha, you're right. I do that sometimes actually. Well I probably do that quite a bit I only really notice my legs when I'm being a dork and do something weird with them. That is a good idea cuz that's much easier than trying to have them on the ground.

Should I start power cleaning more often? I usually don't do it that much, maybe five times during a workout (I do 85 lbs and I weigh 125 lbs), but I've heard that it is really good because it touches on a lot of different muscles throughout the body.

What do you guys do in the respects of power cleaning?

Also, how much do you lift in relevance to how much you weigh?

Also, I did 100+ prison squats today because we had to keep doing them until everyone had perfect form D:

I have a question about my muscles plateauing (I haven't noticed it yet, but I want to prevent it), which happens when you work out the same muscle in the same way over and over again without switch up.

If I work out with free weights every other day, and on my off days I do push-ups, pull-ups and dips (which I don't do on the days I lift free weights), I shouldn't plateau, because even though I'm working out a lot of the same muscles, I'm doing different exercises, right?

Two weeks and no progress? Wah, wah, wah. As a scrawny little kid, it took me years to develop any muscle mass, and I'm still considered pretty damn scrawny.

Would you recommend doing upper body one day and lower the other? Or is what I've been doing fine?

I do groups. Triceps deltoids pectorals etc, then legs, then abs, then back, then rest.

Does everyone log or write down their workouts and each exercise? I heard of someone who doesn't and I had previously assumed everyone did. I don't understand how you can know when to increase your lifting weight if you haven't been keeping track of it or how you can stay motivated if you aren't able to see your progress on paper.

That's because you're not supposed to do full body everyday, you need time to recover. I don't think one is better than the other, I think it depends on the individual.

uhh, when you say 165 lbs, are you talking about the amount you can bench?

I think he meant his own weight, hence why he mentioned cardio, which makes you lose weight.

I understand it, man, I lift every other day, but I'm still 125 lbs no matter what, mainly because of my metabolism, but also because running and playing drums burns a lot of fat.

Hey everyone.
I finally decided to get my bonyself to go work out and actually gain muscle,I've been doing a lot of research.
http://ectomorphworkout.org/bodybuilding-workout-routines/be ginner-gym-workout-routine/
What do you guys think of this routine for a hard gainer like me? I've started eating more meals a day,drinking protein on the morning,stop drinking soda daily,and very likely try my best to eat fruits and veggies which I disgust,but I can learn to like them.I think I'm going to buy Creatine too,when I'm decently fit,I'm planning on joining any available martial arts preferably boxing,karate or kung fu.

Yes, great work out.
Big compound lifts.. squats, deadlifts, presses, pull ups, dips.
Groundwork for every successful workout routine.
Add in some high intensity cardio on off days and your set.

how tall are you? if you're really short you may be somewhat of a normal weight

But have you tried eating an actual surplus food, like tracked every bit of food you put in yourself because it maybe not that much of a surplus, you should be trying to eat more then 1 gram of protein for each pound of body weight you are, in your case at 125 I'd recommend a lot more, while having your rest days still eating the same amount, because with running and drums(which my friend lost so much weight doing) you hare putting out less calories then you're probably putting in, you need to find a way to stuff yourself absolutely packed and then eat some more, but attempt to keep it all a clean bulk

Just found this thread, thought I'd share and see if I can pick up any tips. Hopefully I'll be able to stay connected.

I'm Sean, 20 years old and weigh 150lbs.

Exercise:
I pretty much only do aerobic exercise, lots of reps with moderate weight.
Arms: All sorts of lifts with my 15lbs dumbbells, but I have three main routines to isolate my biceps and triceps.

Back: Once again with my 15lbs dumbbells, I work out my deltoids and lats (looking for a good trapezius routine)

Abbs: Oh I do all sorts of shit for my abbs. Slow sit ups, crunches, supermans, six-inch killers, planks, and I'm practically flexing my stomach all day.

Legs: I live in quite a hilly college town and I ride my bike to class every day, so that's the majority of my leg workout. The two times a week I do go to the gym I start off my routine with non-stop jogging of several miles (depending on how badly the running makes me need to crap haha).

Diet:
-I don't eat hydrogenated oils of any kind period. So I'm always looking on the ingredient labels for the clever ways food companies try and disguise it. So basically no fast food, cake, pastries, and most fried foods.

-I take a multivitamin every day, no protein powders, steroids or any of that stuff.

Advice:
-Do more aerobic exercise, it'll trim ya up.
-Don't quite lifting until you literally can't lift you arms/legs/body/etc. up anymore. Then take a breather and do it again haha, I prefer this to counting my reps. Besides, the moment of your workout where you burn the most energy and tone the most muscle is when your muscles are aching their worst!
-Don't be afraid to grunt and yell while working out, it proves to yourself just how much effort your putting in.

Goal:
-To tone my leg muscle without destroying my knees.

I'll get a picture up when i find a good d-bag pic.

Keep your back straight while flexing. Good posture actually tones muscle and subtracts from back pain. Otherwise you're looking great, girls love that groin muscle though, work on that!

How do you guys schedule your exercise?

I do upper body every other day, then lower body and cardio every other day. I made progress for a while doing this, but I feel like I've stopped, and I wondered if it was better to focus on one specific muscle group per day.

What do you guys do?
