So, if you weigh less, the illusion will be there that you are taller.


I was 5'6 240lbs my friends used to call me a "Five by Five".

I read that for every pound of muscle you put on you lose 35-50 calories per day.
Well..the true bottom line is..If you want to lose weight, eat right.
You can do as much body lifting you want, if you eat junk more times than not during a week, you wont lose weight.
If you want to lose weight, its also much better to lift smaller weights and do more reps, as you'll cut your body up instead of putting on muscle mass.

Myth!

Low weights and high reps will make you muscle fibers more endurant that's it

When you talk about ball squats, are those with two legs, and the regular ones with one leg only? Cause it's damn hard with one leg lol.

Ive been working out hard for just over a year now and have seen amazing results. Being at school all day and working my mental muscles makes me happy to go to the gym and work my body. I had lost 20 pounds from weight lifting 210 down to 190. I have brought my weight back up to 200 and kept off any fat. I hover around 18% bodyfat. I go to the gym about 5-6 days a week for around an hour a day

There is a really good walk run program that takes 12 weeks and has you start off very very slow and has you running for 45mins by the end of it. I have a copy here somewhere, just not sure where it is.

Stop running!

start building your cardiovascular endurance by biking (or swimming) then slowly get some jogging sessions in your week, starting slow of course

Super sets are where it's at , google them they are the best way to keep your muscles in shape. Let's not forget though the way you look = 70% what you eat and 30% how you work-out.

Its not a myth, more reps will define your muscles more than give it mass.
I guess i can agree that it is a bit of a myth though, because what will really decide whether you gain mass or get cut is your diet.
Get cut is a high protein low carb diet..and mass is the other way around.

But if you do the high protein low carb intake diet, you'll get better result from high reps.

Super-sets is an advanced form of workout and you really have to know what your doing to avoid getting hurt. You also need proper protein intake for recovery for these types of movements.

Anybody using fat burners? I used Hydroxycut last summer and lost quite a bit of weight pretty quickly. That mixed with weights and basketball 3-4 times weekly made me lose 12 pounds in 8 weeks.

Very very bad for you. Fat burners are a mix of caffeine and ephedrine and that combination revs your heart like crazy. I was on Ripped fuel for a couple of months. I noticed my heart rate race WHILE I WAS WATCHING TV. Never touched it since.

Hydroxycut is apparently very good, but I've never used anything before.. so I'm not sure I'm going to.

My mom used it before and lost a bunch of a weight and kept it off. Some of my friends have used it as well.. it works..

What defines your muscle is you BF% and the size of your muscle not the number of reps but yes high reps will not give you mass

I agree to get cut but for mass it's high carbs AND high protein! Also quality carbs (ie vegetables and fruits...) not fast food carbs

It's also very important to know when and how much of which to eat.

Tuesday and thursday's for me are tricep/bicep days , super sets help me workout less but harder , because they require a bit more recovery time.
