Have you lifted today? No? Go find something heavy. Pick it up. Now put it back down. Good. Do that a dozen more times.
For me mostly hard rock, heavy metal and power metal. I gets me going so good.
My go to bands are Manowar, Motörhead, Blue Öyster Cult, Powerwolf and Sabaton to name a few.
Powerwolf specially I recommend. Seriously, try doing your routine with the Blessed and Possessed playing.
Somebody That I Used To Know
Iced Earth is great for this, shame they broke up because of Schaeffer's Capitol shenanigans.
Sonic Frontiers- Undefeatable
Sonic Frontiers- Find Your Flame
Sonic Frontiers- Break Through it all
and some Phonk music
Post your /fit/ related videos.
Figured it out and forgot to post. The trick is to kick forwards to keep your body straight and your feet away from where the rope is going.

Lift and move it.
Has anyone tried it? I strained my elbow. Currently I have an uncomfortable feeling in my muscles from a lack of a workout. It's nagging at me. I want to exercise so badly right now, but I also don't want to have one of those nagging injuries that never quite go away. I've heard of people working out through injuries so I'm open minded about it.
work it out as much as you can without hurting yourself, keep your protein intake up, work out the rest of your body so it doesn't get dragged down by one limb
noticed over the past few weeks or so that my range of mobility for bending has been fucked, lower back muscles are extremely tense and now I can't even touch my toes without exerting an absurd amount of effort and patience for my back to loosen up. standing up from a chair takes a few seconds for my lower back to get adjusted. i feel like an old fart. what are some ways to loosen up the lower back? will it simply fix itself with time? should i stop doing exercises for now that make use of the lower back, or at least do greatly reduced workloads with them?

this guy is the holy grail when it comes to physical therapy. has helped me through all of my injuries
These two wrote the Becoming a Supple Leopard books. I highly recommend it.
From personal experience, I find that doing nothing after an injury makes for a longer recovery. I like to drop weight as much as possible, increase reps, and exercise the area more often.
Getting toned is hard... but I will persevere!
Lately I discoverd that my body is stiff as a rock and I want to change that I want to become more loose, I want to reach peak body performance.
So I need some help, is there an optimal routine I should follow what kind of exercise should I do that sort of stuff
Rant about some shitty gym equipement, I'll start.
I fucking hate the Matrix cardio machines god they are soo fucking awful, one of the gyms that I went to had a matrix treadmill with super high tech touch and man it was the shitest touch screen that I've ever the used the input delay of that piece of shit is like 10 sec long so whenever I want to up the speed I have to a century for that bitch to speed and you know what it has physical buttons but those are also fucked beyond comprehension they change by 0.1 and they are also slow as fuck, god why does everything has to be with touch screen just make good responsive buttons that fucking work.
it wouldn't even have to be buttons, a slider would suffice. honestly if you really want to run that bad just run around your neighborhood. sure it's not in an aircooled environment, but when there comes a time where you need to fucking run it's not going to be in a gym. it's going to be when you're running from the T34/whatever the fuck tanks Russia is using since King Joe has demanded you die for Democracy :^)
Any of those machines designed to replace weights/barbells/dumbbells, they exercise the wrong muslces (inverting every exercise (focusing on pulling instead of pushing and vice versa), which is not what the majority of your lifts are going to be and giving you niche strength that you'll rarely use).
How to get abs like this guy.
Steak, water, fruits, vitamin b1, d, cod liver oil, mike mentzer technique
Bicep & tricep curls & lifts.
cut, Cut, CUT!
Abs are just low body fat composition. Furthermore, if you're natty there is no point in ever bulking. Work out by all means and do strength training lifts, but never go over say a 500 kcal surplus.
what >>1614 says, train hard to get strong abs and watch your diet RELIGIOUSLY to burn all the fat off.
I'm using Crystal Quest's Fluoride/Multi Cartridge in þeir "Undersink Single Water Filter System" (pic related). Not willing to fork over six hundred bucks to buy a fluoride meter yet, so until þen, I'll just hope it's doing its job.
/late/ jannies kept deleting my fluorideposts, so I figured I'd bring 'em here. If you don't know þe scoop on fluoride, here's þe gist:
"The Impact of Fluoride on the Developing Brain" by Power of Prevention:
1. It calcifies your pineal gland, rendering it relatively useless. If you didn't know already, þis is big, because þe pineal gland produces seratonin and melatonin. Seratonin is associated wiþ happiness, but stabilizes overall mood, cognition, learning, memory, and more. Of course, melatonin used to initiate sleep and align wiþ one's circadian rhyþm. Þose who are out of sync wiþ þeir circadian rhyþm (of which I am myself guilty) are much more likely to be unhappy and to experience þe whole range of mental disorders. Þroughout religion and spirituality, þe pineal gland is associated wiþ þe þird eye.
2. As a toxic substance, it harms brain development. Many studies have shown þat children whose water and baby formula was fluoridated as infants had lower IQ's compared to children whose water supply was non-fluoridated. (Some studies found from þe video's description: https://ehp.
OP here... Switching out the fluoride filter I was using before, since it lasted but 5 months (marketed at lasting 9 months) before starting to taste like hose water. Going with https://truthaboutfluoride.com/water-filters-that-remove-fluoride/'s supposedly self-tested recommendation for "Home Master TMAFC Artesian Full Contact Reverse Osmosis System" in regards to a full undersink system, rather than their number one recommendation of a certain pitcher, which wouldn't run quickly enough for my family. It's supposed to last 2000-2500 gallons, or for about a year. I'll update you all if I don't die or otherwise lose this thread by then. Probably would be more useful to you all if I actually personally tested the levels, but that's what others' reviews are for, right?
Also, an anon I know from a different website provided me with additional angles of fluoride's toxicity. I'll send this thread's link to him; hopefully he'll fill you guys in.
I've heard about that reviewer. Very nice anon, keep us posted
OP here again. When I showed my family the Crystal Quest, they felt bad that I spent all that money on it, and told me that they weren't even going to use it. Since they don't care about decalcifying their pineal glands, I switched to an immediately cheaper, and more effective filter: ClearlyFiltered's Pitcher Filter, which filters out a shitton of shit. I think it says what it does on their website, but if it doesn't, and someone wants to see it, I'll upload a photo of the pamphlet on everything that it filters out and how much it does. There are literally hundreds of contaminants on it, with a ~99.5% removal rate for stuff like fluoride and chlorine. I'm not disappointed, it works pretty well.
Been keeping a tally of how many times I filled the pitcher's top reservoir to count down the day 'til replacement, and it's coming pretty soon (in 6 refills/about 6 days for me), which is why I'm making the post now, instead of waiting a full year to post about it. I have to refill it about once a day because I drink more often than others in my family from working out (and vaping pot, but I need to knock that off); if the pets need more water, I'll use the best stuff (mine); and I use it for stuff like coffee, tea, and ice cubes.
If the fluoride has poisoned my mind I haven't noticed. I just use Brita filters to get the shitty city water taste out.
Related to the sexual abstinence thread. Are there any benefits to period fasting? It seems like a good way to build discipline and self control.
If I ate only high protein foods and exercised regularly while fasting, how could I expect my level of fitness to be affected?
You would burn a lot of fat, I imagine.
I've been fasting lately but I'm finding it easiest to either fast or train (haven't been doing much lately) and eat. I can do 36 hours without major cravings or anything usually, but if I work out too I get ravenous.
A lot of people report good results combining intermittent fasting with workouts though, probably because HGH spikes during fasting. I get too damn hungry.
I want to start doing longer fasts soon as well, like 3+ days.
>You would burn a lot of fat, I imagine
That's kind of my goal, as long as I can keep from burning muscle too.
> I find it easiest to either fast or train and eat
What kind of foods do you eat while you train?
No one loses a significant amount of muscle fasting unless you go for extreme length (weeks instead of days). Working out while fasting decreases muscle loss even further. Just don't expect to put any muscle on, training while fasting is for maintenance and further fat loss.
As far as eating goes, I've actually been eating a lot of carbs, mostly due to temporary poorfaggotry. I just started on keto today though, to make fasting easier. Switching between carb heavy diet and fasting is brutal and I don't recommend it.
Still here OP? How's it coming along?
Leangains has you do a 16 hour fast each day, and an 8 hour window where you can eat. Combined with his training regimen it has worked wonders.

Why aren't you running, anon?
I, for one, aren't because I'm a lazy piece of shit and my motivation runs out extremely quickly after the initial sporadic bursts I get from now and then. One thing I noticed is that this lack of motivation comes, at least in part, from the lack of company and the inability to discuss the activity or compare your results with anyone else.
So I thought of making this thread to encourage anons to pick up running and actually keep at it in hopes that the sense of community with will keep everyone engaged enough not to drop out after the first week day.
I'm absolutely not an expert but, if you're interested in joining and are an absolute beginner I would wholeheartedly recommend the C25K program (pic related #2), I tried it and while progress is slow, it's very easy to follow and you see the first results near immediately, even if you've never done jackshit in your life. IMPORTANT: don't run if you're a tub of lard, you'll just fuck up your joints! Lose some weight first, chubby!
So, from tomorrow morning onwards, I'm going to start my running routine again and I will post updates after every session so we can get the ball rolling and hopefully we can get more people involved and bring more activity to the board! Everyone's welcome!
>updates about your activity
>informative videos and images
>tips, tricks and suggestions of all sorts
>shoes and clothing reccs
No clue who you're referring to. As for things that you can do, the best way is to just start cutting out bad habits and to figure out what motivates you like to be healthier or have greater sex appeal. I've come to realize that I'm almost exclusively motivated by personal development, and it is such a strong motivator that I can instantly drop habits that I view as unhealthy.
I don't really post here because I do my fitness by myself now (or maybe because the board is so slow, sadly), but I wanted to wish you the best. I was never as fat as you were, but I've managed to get my weight down a lot since the start of the year, and I think I've done a good job converting fat to muscle as well. I feel more invigorated and I have better endurance overall. It's also transferred to my mental hobbies like video games (fighting games) and computer programming.
You're doing good, man. We're all gonna make it.
I know this board is slow, but I'm back bitches. A full year later. I had a pretty tough time in 2022 have completely fallen off my exercise regiment, but my weight loss is pretty much permanent and I've actually maintained a decent amount of muscle. I have just going back to the gym and am going to be resuming running. I just ran 2.5km in about 13 minutes, whatever that is.
Biggest thing holding me back is my muscles get quite sore. I need to learn how to stretch.
Good luck anon, I shall remember you.
>weight loss is pretty much permanent and I've actually maintained a decent amount of muscle
God bless you, anon.
In which anons will autistically screech about their masturbation habits. For me, it's been 26 days as of this post, with no nocturnal emissions (that's the challenging part). I used to have a habit of jerking it in controlled routine, once a week just to maintain emotional stability with a modicum of energy. However I have worked on developing a mindset and set of goals that will help manage the energy. Here's what Napoleon Hill has to say about it.
>When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches
>The transmutation of sex energy calls for the exercise of will-power, to be sure, but the reward is worth the effort. The desire for sexual expression is inborn and natural. The desire cannot, and should not be submerged or eliminated. But it should be given an outlet through forms of expression which enrich the body, mind, and spirit of man. If not given this form of outlet, through transmutation, i
do you get pussy?
do you try? i bet if you put as much effort into meeting a girl as you do not masturbating, they would probably open their legs for you.
nowhere to meet them. small friend circle, online dating is pointless when you're against literal gigachads, and i have more important things I want to do in my life anyways.
i understand your sentiment. but they make up 50% of the population, they are literally everywhere in the free world. all you gotta do is attend a venue.
