Easy Weight Gain!

Easy Weight Gain! Gain Fat and Muscle!@delicatenutrition
If you're having trouble losing weight, look no further. Gaining weight can be hard for some, and for others, it pretty easy. Some people have trouble eating a lot throughout the day, and I am one of them.

One of the Easiest Ways to Gain Weight Is By Being In A Calorie Surplus; more calories in. The more calories you're consuming, the more fat is going to be stored (Weight-gain). Almost all foods on this planet contain calories and some type of macros (fat, protein, carbs). To increase weight and/or fat, you must consume more carbs and fats, and proteins is obvious for muscle building.

If you are like ME and have trouble Eating A Lot Throughout The Day, Try these TIPS!


Shakes - Create your own shakes. Very effective for consuming large amounts of calories. Shakes are ideal mass gainers. You can be creative and smart with your shake creations, different variety of foods; nuts, berries, PB, yogurt, oats and much more. Force …

Recovery

Recovery is vital for Healing, repairing and resetting.
Without Recovery, we'd suffer. I mean, we do see people suffering from sleep deprivation. It's crazy how they still walk around being tired all the time, I'd go nuts. I myself do sometimes don't get the proper amount of sleep or I don't recover fully enough. Recovery is critical to pay attention too. It is the process of growing, seeing results. Many people don't recover good enough, or they don't have the right knowledge of what is recovery. Recovery is having the right nutrition because nutrition plays a role for healing and repairing, and Sleep, rest is surely one of the main keys. Sleep is important because that's when the hormones and brain promotes repairs and healings. Sleepless nights are the trigger of slow result progress; You need to sleep more if you are not. Recovery is important for all ages, especially if you're constantly straining your body [muscles] from working out. They need…

Pushing Beyond Failure (Reps)

Beyond Failure (Weight Lifting)Going beyond failure is pushing your self through the pain and torture you're enduringMaximizing your effort to build muscle & obviously to get that lift up. Although it gets us pumped up & possibly hit a pr, but it can be damaging. We don't know when a certain muscle will tear or fail, & if you don't pay attention, it can happen to you. Pushing beyond failure will screw up with your form, the proper form. Proper form is essential to lifting; especially heavy weights. If done incorrectly (Proper form isn't there), perhaps you'll suffer from an injury because you're placing yourself in a weaker position, lifting that weight will cause huge amount of tension on a certain muscle (tendons perhaps) and snap city will arrive. Many lifters will use their ego to lift heavy ass shit. They do not know (at least some) that you must be caution especially with the form & the weights.

Prior to lifting beyond failure, stretching &…

Bodyweight Training

Body weight Training is body training -
similar to weight-training but training with your body, not with weights. You're using movements & different exercises to help strengthen your body. Known as *Calisthenics, people develop incredible strength & physiques from doing body weight training.
(* exercises consisting of a variety of gross motor movements—running, standing, grasping, pushing, etc.)
Body weight training can be used for building muscle & strength but weight training is more effective for muscle building. For those who are beginners to working out, I suggest Body weight training first because you need to understand your strength & the basic knowledge of exercising. Body weight exercises include any type of movement but here's some:


Body weight exercises are helpful after injuries, improving flexibility, mobility & strength. They can be performed anywhere (Home, office, playground, ANYWHERE).

People who have no weights or cannot afford'em, tr…

STATIC CONTRACTION BENEFITS

Static Contraction Helps bring up lagging body parts, increases strength & muscle. The purpose of Static Contractions is to Promote [an overload) stimulus to the muscle. This is great exercise to perform because you're overloading the muscle fibers which results in muscle break down. The more tension is on the muscle, the harder it's being worked.

To perform Static Contraction's, you can either Hold a Still-Point form with weights or posing hard as you can, contracting all the muscles within your body (or a particular muscle [group] ). Contracting hard as you can promotes a stimulus which can help with strength gains and help lagging body parts.

I myself perform Static Contractions; I've made gainz from this. I do this during my workouts and after for maximum results. The static contractions I normally direct to are: Arms (Bicep, Tricep), Back Muscles, Legs. Any body part can be Contracted to a still point. This'll improve your strength, endurance and it stimul…

About My Bone Disease "Osteogenesis Imperfecta" (OI)

Hence the name, "oi.strength" Eh? get it?..


(Oi) Osteogenesis impefecta is a bone disease that affects me greatly on the everyday basis. I was born with this condition, I believe I have type 3 OI. Since birth, I've broken bones. Til this day, I've fractured less & less every year thanks to working out.
Ever since I was born, it was difficult for me to live life happily. I was always fracturing if I wasn't caution; I was always on alert, my mom was always watching my back & I always worried if I was going to break a bone & sometimes out of nowhere when it's not obvious, I break bones which hurts me mentally. Growing up, attending schools, hanging out with friends has never been different for me. I always wanted to be with the 'normal people' & my mom always pushed me, embraced who I wanted to be/what I wanted to do. They never treated me differently from my brothers whom are normal (no condition). During childhood, that was my peak of f…

Fat Gripz - The Ultimate Arm Builder

Fat Gripz instantly convert barbells, dumbbells, chin-up bars and exercise machines into THICK BARS.  @fatgripz

Fat Gripz is one of those gym accessory - that is necessary enough to purchase because it's useful for working out.
Fat Gripz is an accessory for weights/bars; its a small wrap but that wrap is THICK, making it hard to grip which is why it's here -- that wraps around ANY bar (dumbell/barbell/bars).

Fat Gripz is useful because it help strengthen your Hands, Forearms, biceps & most certainly, Grip strength. Many pro athletes use fat grips to maximize their performance & strength. Phil heath is one good model using fat gripz. Look at Heath's forearm's, they're massive. Probably the fat gripz accessory help.

Training other body parts while using fat gripz may not be necessary. For example, training triceps, chest, etc may not help train those muscle groups but rather training your forearms & grip strength. However, depending on your regime/goals, u…

Negative Effects of a Strict Diet

Constantly being on a strict diet to achieve/maintain a certain physique (in this case a low body fat ~ 8-12) will have consequences overtime. Our bodies cannot tolerate being in that deficit for so long, and thus creates problems - mentally. Your body is starving (perhaps), and your mind may act different (if you notice). You may be more easily irritated, your thinking process may be slow, may be needing supplements to upboost your drive, clarity, etc. If so, you're depleted. The constant diet you're on puts a toll on our body. Certain organs are being used more which needs more energy & so your mind is telling you it needs a break & if you ignore, you'll develop those symptoms i've mentioned.
-- cardiovascular, endocrine, reproductive, skeletal, and central nervous systems.


I experience the symptoms and it's hard to deal with. It's a mental challenge. You can overcome it but i want to announce this to those who are new to this and may not know what&#…

Boost Your Willpower

"The ability to delay gratification, resisting short-term temptations in order to meet long-term goals."


Willpower is everything because it determines how willing you are to put yourself in the event of meeting the goals/achieving 'em. For myself, Willpower is everything & there's many techniques that I've learned & developed to increase my willpower & to remain focused & determined.

Without the mentality of challenging yourself day in & day out, trying your hardest, I'd say Your Willpower is low. People who are achievers have a strong sense of willpower. It's the focus of the energy that you're putting out to see what you can get back.

Willpower plays in every situation when it comes to anything; if you want to achieve a certain physique, you must have the willpower to stay with it, be consistent & wait patiently for results.

If you're low on Willpower, here's some techniques that I use:
- In order to increase willpower,…

Heal Your Depression By Smoking Marijuana

The fact that everyone claims that marijuana is bad probably never have used this plant before. This plant is a miracle plant it has tons of benefits and those benefits are personal healing benefits. I started smoking when I was 18 to see what its benefits are and later down the road they help me through a lot and I mean a lot I still use it today for problems that arise such as depression anxiety and pain. Majority of the marijuana users used marijuana for healing properties it's just not a drug that damages your overall well-being such as heroin and other harmful drugs. I discuss the pros and cons of marijuana use and my experience with this miracle plant I do not endorse he want to use anything I'm strictly talking about this upon my own experience 🎲 Social Media: IG: http://pos.li/299zoy                          Twitter: http://pos.li/299zoz                          FB: http://pos.li/299zp0
