Hello pristinemuscles, how do I begin? Do I join a gym, or workout at home? I also don't have equipment or supplements or gym clothes. I know if I worked out, I'd look super in a suit. I feel I need a personal trainer cos discipline is an issue for me along with a good meal plan.

I am happy you have decided to take your body to the muscle level. Whether you decide to register in a gym or have your homemade gym depends on you. But i do prefer homemade gym due to some reasons
-full concentration(minimal distraction).
Why if you register in a "standard" gym, you get to see other guys train and learn one or two things from them. You become challenged to bench-press or curl more than others. But at times the gym may be far from your home or may come with a registration fee on a high side.
I do go to the gym sometimes but i never forget my "home"made "gym".

What is the best way to decrease body fat%? I know you can't spot reduce but is it better to do HIT or to lift weights?
Trying to get to a 20% bf.

Sammy7566:Nice one bro
|Re: Pristine Muscles by PRISTINEMUSCLES: 5:45pm On Feb 04|
To get to a bodyfat percentage of 20, i recommend you do your normal cardiovascular exercises and thrown in some sessions of strength(training). High intensity interval training is usually used by athletes for conditioning and i guess you just began your exercise regimen. As you improve in your fitness level you could proceed to do the hiit exercises. What is your bodyfat percentage as of now?
|Re: Pristine Muscles by PRISTINEMUSCLES: 5:48pm On Feb 04|
Niceone @sammy 7566. You are indeed keeping it real. What do you mean croba neck? Explain better.
|Re: Pristine Muscles by Nobody: 6:11pm On Feb 04|
I didn't just begin. I have actually seen a lot of improvements (I wasn't overweight but I wasn't so fit) since I began over a year ago and became more constant a few months ago. I do fitnessblender workouts, not sure you have any recommendations?
I am just not seeing those changes anymore.My midsection isn't getting any smaller.
I haven't officially checked my bf% because I want it to be be low when I do, but I am around 23-25% max is 26%. Thinking about taking whey but I am not really interested in making gains, I'd like to maintain my current muscle mass. My diet is pretty clean - maybe I eat a lot of rice but that's pretty much it.I rarely eat candy and junk food. I don't drink sodas. Just water and fresh fruit juice. I eat fruits daily but not vegetables. I eat like twice a day sometimes but I am not seeing anymore changes to my midsection.

Do the barbell raise ,only this time you drop the weight not at your shoulder blades but at the back of your neck. Also try closed hand diamond pushups,works for me

Hello my iron warriors, its being quite awhile. Hope we are still keeping it REAL.
When people say marathons races are not built for "big" guys, i do doubt them Until these past few weeks when i decided to go marathonic. Although i am becoming accustomed to it but i know my body does not suit this kind of race. I do lots of sprints and my body is happy.
And so my seemingly preparation for the lagos city marathon has just gone down the drain. I wanted to run to win the fifty thousand dollars and not to keep fit. Because i am fit already.
I guess i will just continue with my sprints.
and iron pumping.
|Re: Pristine Muscles by PRISTINEMUSCLES: 9:18pm On Mar 05|
Hello my peeps. How are we doing? Hope we are really keeping it real. Hope the reccession is not affecting our training. Truth be told, training these days are not easy peasy but WHAT MUST BE DONE MUST BE DONE. For those of us into supplements, the prices are kind of on the high side. Foods are not left out either. But in all these WE MUST KEEP ON PUSHING ON. NO PAIN NO GAIN.
Let us keep ourselves motivated.
I am working on uploading my personal training videos on youtube. When i am done, i will make us aware of it.

|Re: Pristine Muscles by Omari88: 5:59pm On Mar 22|
Hey there guys! I am a newbie here. I usually just stick to bodyweight exercises, but I figured I need to add weight exercises to my regime. The challenge however is I can not afford the time to go to the gym, so I am trying to construct homemade equipment. Any idea(s) guys?
Especially with the bar. Would the regular water pipes hold the weights without giving way?
|Re: Pristine Muscles by PRISTINEMUSCLES: 7:36pm On Mar 23|
Nice one, i am happy you are ready to take your physique and muscle building a notch higher. You can use those pipes but make sure it is thick on the inside with at least 1.8 inches in diameter.
|Re: Pristine Muscles by nelson7777: 1:42am On Mar 29|
bro dat part of d muscle u wnt to develop is called d trapezius a.k.a traps, it is one of d hardest muscle i ever had to develop cos i nver had it genetically, u hv to stress it dis d routine u shud follow in traps
barbell front shrugs 3 sets,... let d first set be a warm up set to avoid injuries of d shoulder/neck, let d first rep be up to 20 then gradually increase weight in every set
barbell back shrug 3 set ,,, follow d same procedure u use on d front,
dumbbell shrugs 3 sets..
do it nt more dan twice a week u dnt wnt to overtrain it in bodybuulding more dosnt mean better
pls note while doing any of d shrugs neverrrrrrrrrrr look side, face ur front cos ur neck might snap..
jst a man to man advise no offence sammy, look at d pics n c were ur chest development start 4rm it started 4rm d lower side of ur armpit, it it simply means u lack upper chest this wat happens wen guys concentrate only on flat bench press cos its easier, u shud do more incline 4 set barbell, 4 set dumbbell to force d upper chest out,
U r already on d right track keep pumping those muscles
|Re: Pristine Muscles by nelson7777: 2:35am On Mar 29|
there is d slangs we use in one of d gyms i use in lagos
we say, dat guy na backyard boy, or na backyard,
i knw u r wondering wats is he saying, it is jst a simple way we identify guys who work out in a gym and who works out in their backyard or at home in general,
every home gym/backyard has a bench and dumbbells but 95% of them hardly ever ever hv a squat rack, which results to their members having d johnny bravo looks, " no legs, no ass" ( calfs is more of a personal decision), equals to an abnormal and an unbalanced look.
This write up is to advise most of u dat prefers working out at home i dnt hv a single problem wit dat, but i must ask " do you squat" does ur home gym hv a squat rack.. if it does pls proceed n more muscles to ur thighs
bt if it does nt pls fix a 1 day u go to a gym n squat a.k.a legs day. "it is a must".
most people will say no we squat we do leg programs without weight dats some serious bullshit, u bench press more dan 100kg n u expect ur body weight squat to make u symmetrical like frank zane or arnold
lets say u weigh 80kg nw divide ur upper body vs ur lower body 40 _ 40 kg each, bross u won build legs with 40kg while ur shoulders n chest they carry times 2 dat.
Yes footballer builds legs without weight but it fits their own sports with their own sport physique ( footballer physique), u want to confirm right? Ok
Christian ronaldo hv a fantastic leg 4 footballer i agree 100% in ur head divide C ronaldos upper body 4rm his lower body, nw divide d upper body 4rm d lower body of arnold / frank zane / phils heath, or any bodybuilder u cn think of nw puts arnold upper body on c ronaldo fantastic lower body, does it match
Pls help ur self they r 2 hardest part of d body a man can build which is not his chest or arms
It is d legs first n d back second. ....
Someday we will talk about hw d back muscles is very important 4 man....
I throway salute to d boss pristine muscles

D most asthetics body builder ever liveth
D man dat made d whole Olympic body to recognize dat u dnt hv to b excessively built to win mr olympia.
D only man to ever beat arnold schwarzenegger
D man dat made arnold so ashamed dat he had to wear more shorts n cut most of his trousers n also cut d calve area of some of his trousers so he will always remind himself to squat n build his calves
D man dat ended up being arnold best friend..
Jst so u knw he was very intelligent with heavy degrees n also a chemistry school teacher
And 4 all of u saying i dnt hv time, he goes to d gym after teaching in evening do u knw d energy it takes to teach children,
Frank zane respect ur boys nelson and pristine..
|Re: Pristine Muscles by PRISTINEMUSCLES: 6:52am On Mar 29|
@nelson7777, nice one bro. How is d "pumping" going? Hope you are keeping it real. Squatting no doubt is difficult at the earliest stages of building the quads but with time, the whole regimen becomes "enjoyable. A good well developed quads and calves gives one that sense of balance and confidence. As for the back, that is a topic for another day.
Frank zane is most definitely it. He had the body-build of a god. Every muscles with the right definitions and proportions. He was a chemistry teacher at the time. That is what is called "passion". There were n't much machines then but he sculpted his body to become muscle personified. What more can i say. But i still got much love for arnie.
