    Hi

    can someone please try and help me understand this. he won't tell me so I'm asking here.

    we have a gym in the garage and my brother uses it every evening but then he orders a takeaway every night? so he works out (not sure what exercises) never wants home food and orders out.

    is this some sort of workout plan? like idek? doesn't eating a takeaway defeat the purpose of working out? I honestly don't know.

    What is he doing to his body?

    but ordering a takeaway every night really? there's deffo a problem with that and prob causing him major high cholesterol. he used to have healthy food all the time like salmon and veg and now he just eats a bunch of ****.

    I've just searched this on urban dictionary to know what it means. He was committed to the gym before, going in at the same time every evening but tbh now he's using it less and less and just eating a bunch of **** all the time.

    Well, he's at least realised that training every day isn't necessary. You've given us very little detail so we can't provide much of an answer. Is he lifting weights? Is he currently skinny? I'm going to hazard a guess as to what's happening:

    He wants to gain some muscle. He's read some "expert" saying that he needs to eat as much has humanly possible to gain muscle. One of four things are going to happen:

    1) He makes mad gains, stays fairly lean, tolerates crap food well and in a year's time people are giving him all sorts of comments on his physique development, all the while staying healthy.
    2) His health markers go to s*** from all the crap food.
    3) He overbulks and gets fat.
    4) A combination of 2 and 3.

    He's not going to have a non-lifter giving him advice. You've just gotta let him crack on and learn from his own mistakes on this one. If I've misread the whole situation and he's not lifting, then I dunno WTF he's doing :rofl:

    Made a new year's resolution to try and eat a bit cleaner for the sake of my health this year and see how it makes me feel. Caved in last night and had a Domino's :ashamed2:

    That's helpful thanks! I guess he's doing it to try and bulk up then. He's a medium build and has been using the gym for years and there's loads of dumbbells in there, plus a bench press and a vertical machine. Some other equipment I can't remember. Cheers.

    He came because he is addicted to TSR and isn't somone who has made mad gains. If he were doing well for himself, he would be spending more time in the gym rather than on TSR lol.
    Just don't not get why so many ppl make threads declaring how TSR is dead and that they're leaving only to return shortly afterwards
