Containment thread in order to prevent the martial arts thread from becoming my personal blog, given how dead /fit/ has been lately. Original post with a basic breakdown of the routine >>798
After some training and research I've updated the program. I will continue to refine the program as I go, but I will try to finish a given version of the routine before changing, which means the version I've posted in this thread won't go into effect until next month. The strength training portion replaces the circuit on days when that is what is being trained. The "Monk's Isometric" guide is in the infographs thread.
This thread is also intended for anyone who wants to post a training journal, not just myself, so please do so, I am interested in what other anons training looks like.
>bo doesn't want an active board
If a board isn't being posted on, it's dead.
The way to attract posters is by keeping the board active. I don't appreciate the implication that my posts and threads are low quality. Especially when I've gone to the trouble of creating oc for the board.
you are retarded
Finished page 1. I trained 16 hours total for the last 20 days, but only on 10 days out of the 20. I had to substitute some strength oriented sessions for the the circuit as my legs were absolutely shot. The version posted on this thread takes that into account by adding the alternate strength workouts by design. It also fixes a couple omissions.
Since I didn't train today, and I missed my target, I'm starting on page 2 tomorrow. See you in 20 days.
I've decided to modify things a bit. I'm going to start on a new page tomorrow instead of waiting to finish the page I'm on. There are a few reasons for this. I think this version is better balanced overall, more challenging, and more sustainable long term. One can go as hard or easy as one likes by adjusting circuit reps and take up to a week off if necessary without losing any gains. 2 weeks is more psychologically manageable and more appropriate for my long term goals, as I want to cycle on and off a calorie deficit. Metabolic adaptation starts to set in after 2 weeks on a caloric deficit, so you really don't want to go longer than that if you don't want to end up with a low basal metabolic rate.
As you can see, it's structured a bit differently. The light workout is something that shouldn't leave you too tired, it's meant to be done before going to work. I have my own plans for this time, if anyone wants to try the regimen, just do whatever is suitable for you in this regard.
On the initial post on the martial arts thread explaining the schedule, I said to aim for at least 2 "reps" of the circuit. Disregard that, especially for this version. Do as many as you can do sustainably, if that's 1, so be it.
In case anyone is interested in copying it, here's my 10 minute warm-up:
>100 up minor (walking in place with high knees)
>the following calisthenics, 10 reps (or seconds for holds) each
>timed my "10 minute" warm-up
I guess it's fine. I like my warm-up the way it is.
Having just finished finished a book on the old 5 pound dumbbell system, and beginning to read some of the old literature such as Strength, and How to Obtain It and Muscle Control, I am inspired to create a thread on the old timers. These guys were amazing and made their achievements without steroids or modern supplements.
Some old books for those interested.
Some more physiques. Hackenschmidt may be familiar as the originator of the "hack squat", the man was impressive and filled out a suit better than just about anyone. Sigmund Klein married Professor Attila's daughter and took over his gym, Lionel Strongfort was yet another Attila student.
Also Sandow's first book. He beat Attila to the punch by publishing Attila's own exercises first.
I got injured during a time my strength gains were rising at their fastest rate yet. Outside my youth even but I was lifting heavy almost exclusively. Eventually, a back injury occurred in the middle of a squat set. I was able to finish the rep I was on despite it but the back pain that followed for the following couple of months was so intense I'd get out of bed to get some water to drink, walk back to bed, and literally would feel tired from all the pain felt.
I haven't read anything here but recently I started, for the first time ever I might add, a light weight workout routine. Where I do sets slow and steady, for max reps, or to even do movements that would break me with heavier weights. Doing this for three weeks I went back to some heavy weights. Not only did it feel easier to pump out 10 on heavier dumb bells, but it also felt less painful, for a lack of better words. Like my muscle was more full. I don't know how to explain it. Anyways, I found out it takes about 40 days before newly acquired maxes start going down for me but with how the light weights have been changing me, I feel like it's making my body more prepared for the strength gains I acquire. You know how some dudes cycle test? I'm thinking the trick to natty weight lifting is to cycle heavy weights. Idk, maybe just doing 100 rep sets of 5lb dumbells and then jumping up to something heavier to do only 10 times just se
That's pretty interesting. A lot of these old time strongmen used to only lift heavy during their shows apparently, their performances were their training. Something similar to your situation happened with the author of "the lost secret" posted earlier, he broke his elbow I believe and didn't want to put too much stress on it right after it healed, so he thought he'd experiment with this old system. He doesn't claim to fully understand how the system works but has a couple theories. I posted the book through catbox because it's an epub, which I don't think will upload here, but I recommend it. There is a bit more to it than meets the eye.
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.
>hit and run 'fags' post
>can't even spell 'fags'
Do you not like metal? Are you unimpressed with Man-O-war's actual /fit/ tier physiques?
Use you words anon.
>music you listen to while working out
I love me some happy hardcore mind drug.
>thump thump thump thump
To each his own, but listening to this would drive me nuts.
Guilty Gear OST.
My coworker showed me Beast in Black a while ago, they're a solid 8/10 and really get you pumped.
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?
Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ )
We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u
It's a fake spam message. Sorry..
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
2 weeks in but struggling. Any tips?
after 3-4 weeks of feeling like a zombie it'll die down. you'll have moments but you can control them.
Everytime my gf stays at my places and leaves I fall back into watching porn and jerking like a champ needing ~1 week to get back to proper nofap. How do I fix this. Anyone else having sex on a regular basis and knows the struggles of nofap when confronted with sex all the time?
My goal is not to ever jerk off or watch porn but having sex as usual.
Don't edge, it makes it even worse, that's all I can tell you.
I dreamed about fapping and stopped because your comment I remembered your comment in my dream. Thanks for watching over me.
Discuss things that aren't workouts or exercise per se, but help you to improve your performance as well as maintain /fit/ness and motivation. For example:
>wim hof method
>abstinence in general
>study and inspirational reading
Things to not discuss:
<roids, drugs and other gay shit
Personally I stopped using warm water in my showers, all my showers have been 100% cold for the last 3 months. I've had a huge uptick in energy levels since I started doing this, and I also feel more solid, like my body has become more dense. The reason I decided to do this is related to an observation I made a few years ago. I was visiting family and had my cat with me, and even though it was the beginning of winter, he had to stay in a shed outside because of their dog. Now, he was normally 7.5 pounds, but after a few weeks in that shed, he was 14 pounds. The reason I weighed him was because he was noticeably bigger, and suddenly had muscle definition, it blew my mind that he just about doubled his weight. Interestingly, he went right back to his old weight after he started living inside aga
When do you prefer to take it? I've been taking it all in one go around midday, but I'm considering splitting it into two. The feeling of fullness tends to fade after dinner, so maybe it will help.
I've seen that one and I reckon it's bullshit. If you crave candy, your body thinks it needs energy. If you crave chocolate, your body thinks it needs energy. If you crave ramen or bread, your body thinks it needs more energy. If you crave chips or bacon, your body thinks it needs salt. Simple as. It's up to you to decide whether your body is correct or not.
I can't really give proper advice here because I've never been a fat cunt nor had troubles with junk food. Quite the opposite; I'm one of those guys who have to force themselves to eat. I can go for days without eating if I don't keep track. But even still, you can't eat what does not exist. Stop buying junk food and only cook enough carbs and fats to meet your bare minimum requirements. If you do have more calories than you probably should have, then that's the perfect excuse to go and pump some iron to burn it off.
On a similar note, is anybody else here physically disgusted by junk food? I like ice cream and dark chocolate, but lollies are bland, chips are too salty and (if flavoured) fake, sweet chocolate tastes gross and soft drink makes me want to puke. With the exception of ice cream, all of the above are so unsatisfying that it actually hurts if I eat them alone as if I hadn't eaten in 36 hours. I assume this is because my body expects a proper meal packed full of nutrients and produces acid in response but is instead greeted by a low-quality hi
>On a similar note, is anybody else here physically disgusted by junk food?
It depends, some i love chocolate and fast food other i have no interest in at all candy, gummy bears and stuff like that and the rest i actively dislike sodas
>you may find that you don't even want M&Ms or Cola anymore.
Definitely, it's what i did with drinks and now i only drink water and coffee and the occasional liqueur
As good guys die out, the world only gets shittier and shittier with more of faggots like you reproducing and sucking up the fresh O2. Niggers, spics, and kikes like you only serve to make the world a shittier place with obessessive crying about muh colonialization, retards who need gobernment fundings and assistance to help you from becoming outcasts or homeless faggots off the streets, and favorites of big corps who treat you like slaves while sucking you off as if you're anything special.
There are no we wuzzers this is just you being a typical shitskin crying bout white people as always. Not even imageboards are safe from you faggots.
>What do you guys use to kill food cravings?
The best way to do that is to occupy your mind on something that makes you forget about eating shitty foods. Doing your usually hobbies or setting your mind on something that makes you forget about eating crap is something I've been doing these past years.
>There are literal videos of animals jacking off or licking themselves for sexual pleasure. How is nature unnatural?
Animals also genocide, cannibalize themselves, and rape their own kin for fun. Just because creatures of nature does it doesn't mean it's natural nor does it mean it should be done. Animals are essence of nature just like humans and can make poor decisions within their lives and do things that are unnatural as well. Your logic is retarded, because this is something (((scientists))) claim when they're the same people who are willing to take things out of context and claim that merely homosexuality exist among animals, because they took a dominant lion raping its victim as an indication of homosexuality being of tolerance. Masturbation has no benefits whatsoever, even Israel the country that profits off of porn industry knows this, which is they banned it and use it as weapon.
I want to take on the difficult task of working out for 8 continuous days after only 1 rest day from 6 continuous days of exercise to close off the year. Last time I worked out 8 days straight I could barely finish my workout on the last day but I had never felt more accomplished.
I'm uncertain if I can make it, all I know is it would be in my best interest to try.
Order me to continue onward and make it.
Only for 3 more days.
Besides this might be the only span of time I get to workout 8 days, the rest of the year (month) will be only 6 days and mostly 4 most likely. I need all the help I can get to reach my goal of a 30 inch waist, I'm at 37 and 1 day in as of writing this.
I GOTTA MAKE IT
I just wanted to update and say I made it. In two days thereabout I will have done the 8 days I promised myself so it is literally all downwind from here.
Afterword's I'll only be able to really work out for 4 days a week only, but it's fine boys, cest le vie.
Proud of you anon.
Hey there, /fit/
We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if any of the boards that previously joined us wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament.
Since your team was already present in previous iterations, we already have both your roster, your kits and logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following:
1) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page;
2) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup.
Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles:
I'd love to participate, would you be able to share the existing /fit/ team? It'd be easier than starting from scratch and it'd be easier to make changes to it.
Keep in mind, you can remake it from scratch if you feel like it, we just kind of need the wiki page to be consistent with your decisions though. Just so that the head rigger doesn't screw up.
Hey /fit/, just getting around to the last few active boards who weren't part of ICUP 6 to officially announce the GCUP. The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivities. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!
Why do you guys have two threads?
Sup, /fit/izens, how about we join the Infinity Cup to get our board a little more exposure?
ok, "anon", I'm interested. (you) make the kits, (you) make the roster and (you) make the formation and then
You're a bit late, but if you want to go for next year then go ahead. Unless you want to handle everything by yourself though (you don't), I suggest you find other anons willing to help you out.
We don't really need anything, though, most stuff is already set up from last year's.
I've never understood this thing. Is it an online Fifa tournament? Or does somebody just set up bots on Fifa and they duke it out and people bet on who will win? Or is it something else entirely?
>Or does somebody just set up bots on Fifa and they duke it out and people bet on who will win?
Something like that but on Winning Eleven/PES. Boards involved give names to make a team, strats, formations, assign skills, make custom sets and models and then the AI dukes it out. I don't think there's any betting, it's just for fun.
