You guys can believe what you want, I have an extremely fast metabolism as in I can eat a tub of ice cream before bed every night and it HELPS me rather than hurt me. I used to compete in jiu-jitsu tournaments before I started mma and I weighed in at 155. I'm currently 184 and just as lean as I was at 155. Boss.
To the thread starter.. you cant gain size without lifting heavy. I know you want people to tell you doing pushups and swinging on the jungle gym will put size on you but it wont. Stop being cheap and invest 20.00 a month into a gym.
P.S. Wtf is a "mma muscle body."
Plazzman: You said you eat 2 plates of food at dinner... and? How's the rest of your day? So quick to lash out without any intelligent information.
Well good sir, I shall use my 1000th post on you.
Thats very good that you eat a tub of Ice Cream every night before you go to bed, I honostly dont understand how it could be good for you but that is your body, you know better. As for my diet and metabolism, I stated I eat atleast two full plates of rice, bread and meats (usually chicken) at dinner time, (not 100% all the time but VERY often), as for the rest of my day, well, its not like I have a complete and scheduled meal,I eat about one serving of some not so healthy stuff for breakfast. I eat anywhere from 1-2 sittings of an average person for lunch, and Im always snacking on anything I can find.
If you had read and understood more carefully you would see that I am not talking about the things I eat and when I eat them. I was merely saying that I eat a lot, sometimes very unhealthy foods, but its does not settle in my system, or affect me considerably like many other people. Now I was always a very skinny kid. I probably weighed somewhere around 125 junior year oh H.S. I am now 155 standing at 5-11. I have gained extra pounds recently due to a new work out regiment, but I still eat just as much.
I would kindly take your word anyother day, but its kinda hard putting your opinion over lets say, my doctor, whos spent a hell of a lot longer time on the human body then you. And plus this isnt even my problem, Im fine with the way I am now and can always get bigger later on in life. Im only 18 and have much more growing to do.
But concerning your views on M__D, I find it kind of unfair for you to lambaste him because he cant afford a typical gym. Because you know pumping Iron and taking your daily supplements isnt the only way to stay healthy and fit. And of course you can gain muscles by doing pushups and pullups and what not, why else would people do them, to look cool? Ive personally gained a ton of muscle by doing those. You really think many martial artists and gymnasts get the physiques that they have by heading down to golds gym everyday? In fact I can give you prime examples of people who have changed their lives considerably by just doing many of these things.
I have a friend who weighed in upwards to about 250 Lbs, (In the 9th grade!), He joined a TKD class and within a 7 months to about a year he was down to a fairly built 200-210. Now are you telling me his Varpit had him lift dumbells all day?
What he was merely asking, if you had kindly read was, "How can I improve my physical stature and fitness without
going to a conventional gym?".
So next time please dont think what works for you HAS to work for others, no matter what. You know Im just tired of people who are in the mind set of being fit and staying healthy looking down on everyone who isnt at their level. Sure it takes determination, but its hard, and not everyones Ronny Coleman or Jack Lelane. Gyms are not the only answer bud.
