Deload and up from 3x5 to 4x5, you might just need more volume
Is the first or second number the amount of sets? Because 3x5 to me means 3 sets of 5, are you saying add another set or another rep?

I'm experiencing lower back pain, brought on by my office job (and possibly exacerbated by kettlebell swings I did last week).

How fix?

if you aren't lifting nude you're cheating
They give me like ten kilos on my squat.

Hurts like hell though when in the bottom.
Nobody cares what you wear, this is just autists being autists
Hit 405x5 super comfy with rehbands and lever belt
stop lifting heavy for a week, deload
knee sleeves do not prevent injury, good form does
fix your form
-film it
-watch it back
-make a webm and post on fit so we can give you pointers

other than that, if you're over 40+ they're reasonable to use, othewise go raw

ok thank you based anon
chin ups are objectively superior to virgin wide grip pull ups
I couldn't even do 1 chin when I started lifting and I just did wide grip lat pulldowns and close chinup grip pulldowns until I was able to do actual chins/pullups. Now I can do 12 chins with 45lbs added and a 5 rep set of full width pullups
You only need a rope.

why do my threads keep getting deleted edition
No one likes you

hey, /fit/, I just have a question.I've been thinking about going back to the gym ( I stopped a year ago ) and now I'm just wondering, will it just be a waste of time if I don't get enough food? in the place I'm in right now they don't give us much food and at most I would say it could reach around 20g of proteins per day.On one hand, I want to go just to feel good during workouts, But on the other hand, I just feel like it would pointless to go if it won't amount to anything. Also, I can't cook my own food because living in dorm and stuff.

I'm kind of skinny actually. Is there no other solution than whey ?
Cottage cheese and eggs, find some way to get your hands on them

If you can, use egg whites, not eggs. Eggs drive up your cholesterol levels too much to be useful as a main protein supplement.
I really don't like VG's rhetorical style, but this is one video where I think his research is comprehensive and correct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaIpaGSESO0

Whey is honestly one of the most cost-effective ways to get protein. Another good dairy option would be 0% fat greek yoghurt from a wholesaler (idk if it's cheap everywhere in the US, but it is at my local Costco). If you're comfortable learning how to cook lentils, green grams are very efficient and very cheap in bulk. (my suggestion would be something like lime juice, chili powder, salt, cumin, and canned tomatoes) Finally, low fat% ground poultry or chicken thighs are usually available in very affordable bulk quantities.

Hope this helps!
thnx senpaitachi, but my question still remains, what if I can't get enough nutrition? will weightlifting be useless in this case?
I wrote f.a.m but it got filtered. I swear I'm not a weaboo.

Is there any kind of dairy milk that has 0 sugar calories in it?

I am not talking about lactose free milk, because it still has 2 kinds of sugars in it.

Also, please no "alternative" milk sources (Begone, soyboys!)

What do you think lactose is?
I completely forgot about that option - I just found unsweetened almond milk, this might be exactly what i was searching for - thx mate!

(i found this, just translate it per google)

i can still add artificial sweetener in it, you brainlets

Whats your workout routine /fit/?
MWF :: Stronglifts 5x5 with more Armwork
TTS :: c25k

I joined boxing and MMA today I never did it in my life, reason i took it is because am alone, I did judo in past in my life, MMA was fine coz I was familiar with wrestling, judo and krav, but boxe i was nervous as I am always naturally nervous my coach wanted to push me he actually made fun of me for that in public and about me being shy and depressed, he was trying to put me on edge and push me I feel, but again I am sick of being nice and thinking positive even if people are clearly making me miserable

First day in my life I came from gym and I don't want to eat anything now
Should I continue this gym or leave?
continue, op, perhaps your not the first the coach has tried this on. the reason im on 4chan in the first place is because of the lack of pussyfooting on here, i wish i faced more instances of what you're talking about irl instead of empty, polite small talk about things that don't matter. it sounds like what you experienced was a legitimate in-group occurrence and is something rare and meaningful, something sjws are trying to do away with.
Thanks for that I always kept myself out there where am not comfortable...I am still pushing myself but I am so exhausted i had it...

Hey, my bro has a small tear in his rotary cuff
and he's asking me what I think he should do
at the gym. Should he just work through it with
really light weight when involving shoulder or
just cardio for a week or two until it heals?
What has worked for you guys if you've ever
had an injury that interfered with gym?
1 reply and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I get why you'd give me sarcasm back but whenever I straight up google it there are multiple links saying to work it with light weight.

Poem format because autist
Let it settle down for a week or two before actually training again with lighter weights and work up from there
had a fucked up shoulder from trying new excercises and shit(I know, I am a retard).
at first I tried to keep doing bench/ohp, I had no pain doing those excercises but I knew that shit wasnt good so I dropped ohp/bench and started running and it helped a lot. easy way to get blood into the parts of your body without actually overworking them, atleast thats my guess. I started feeling the first signs of recovery after my first week.

tl;dr drop ohp/bench and do light shit like running to get blood into your shoulder without actually overworking it.
yeah what everyone, settle down for a bit, if it still hurts, go see an orthopedist. I had similar thing. I had a torn labrum in my left shoulder. I opted for a surgery and now my shoulder is much better than my right shoulder.

I have tearing too and also unstable shoulders (i dont know if thats the correct english translation, you get the point).
In my case im fucked up hard, only surgery can fix it (and only partially), shoulder injuries are one of those things you really want to avoid.

Just do cardio, and do rehab exercises after that. and dont fucking do always 100% god damn it
