I've been cutting, so taking it easy on the weight and doing more cardio. I am treating this with stretching and a bit of rolling. Little by little, it's improving. Most of the pain is gone, just some numbness and limping. Still can't do a calf raise on that side because of the numbness

anyone got a good consistent plan to build strength again ? i wanna get back to going gym consistently, and i been doing a lot of 3x10 or so but im not sure if thats the best for me right now. Trying to lose weight, usually adding 20-30mins of cardio at the end of every session with the bike (HIIT style or constant speed with resistance)

debating if to do a 5x5 routine again, get some strength back, but i found when i did that program in high school it made me look bulkier/stockier ,where as i wanna "look" skinnier and lose the belly and some waist inches

ps: i know its all about the diet, but hoping you brosefs can help recommend a good program (insert link for bodybuilding plan or other in here lulz )

Do more cardio mang. I'm at 45 minutes every day, and I don't really watch what I eat.

question regarding 24 hour gyms. There's one down the street from me which I was planning on signing up to and I got there and there's no staff so doors are locked. Apparently staff only work during regular business hours. Is that normal? Seems a bit unsafe. If someone is the only one there and has a heart attack/stroke/medical emergency there's nobody to help them. I'll sign up regardless as I can Imagine there would be a couple people there at all times.

Normal? Gym is Goodlife - fit4less

That is normal. I go to anytime fitness and it is exactly like that. They have these devices you can wear where if you press them it will call emergency services. Haven’t seen anyone use them though.

Almost all 24 hour gyms run like that. Unless it's a massive one. My gym staff work 9-6 but it's a 24 hour gym.

Berz out.

Alright swole bros, if I do lift and do 30 mins cardio after is that considered too much?

I'm worried about burning muscle. I've been told it's a myth if I do it after lifts.

Cardio is an important part of being healthy and athletic. You can use cardio as your warm up for the body area you’re working that day.

Doing legs? Jump on the bike for 30 minutes. Back and shoulders? Hit that rowing machine. Arms and chest? Just do a 5k run on the treadmill. Once you’re done the warm up, do your rounds of lifting for about an hour or whatever and done. If you’re eating the right calories and still tearing muscle, you’re not going to lose it
