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 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.
>>870 (OP) 
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.
This is an interesting topic.  Has OP or anyone else tried it out in the last few months?

I haven't, I just did 3 days of it last month. I tend to jump around too much with my training, changing my programming all the time. I'm trying to be more consistent.
I plan on dedicating 3 months to the dumbbell system after I complete some courses that I bought , which will take me until mid April to complete. So I will certainly check in again at that point.

This is Grizzly, your overlord. I am aware that this board has been dead for quite some time, and that is my fault. I have been very busy with life's endless stream of bullshit and as a result have fallen behind in not just my lifting, but every other meaningful thing I've wanted to do with my life as well. Now that I'm working back into a manageable schedule, I'd like to use this thread for a little experiment.
This thread (and hopefully the ones that come after it) will be a daily journal for anons to chronologue their fitness journeys. After each workout, post what you did, how long you did it, what you did it with, and anything else that happened that pertains to fitness. There is already a similar thread like this one >>32 focused on running, but I would like to expand the workout journal idea to all forms involved, including lifting, cardio, dieting, and anything else that may be of interest to fellow /fit/izens. Yes, it is blogposting and I will not attempt to disguise it as anything else. But it's a good way for anons to share advice with each other on maximizing gainz and bringing up the PPH for the board as a whole.
So with all that being said, tell us about your workout today. You DID lift today, right?

Had the day off from work so the gym was pretty much empty, feelsgood. Song from webm related was playing and all i could think about was those fat bastards dancing, very dangerous to laugh while doing bench presses. also my calves are screaming at me, send help.
I had gotten a decent body weight routine going during the summer (gyms are still closed/require masks where I live, and screw that), but when the cold weather came in October I realized that I don't really have much space for home workouts.  I also lost my willpower around Halloween and bought a bunch of candy/sweets, so I spent like three weeks eating way too much sugar and junk food and not exercising.

I finally decided to clean up the dust in my attic and get back to working out a few days ago, with a body weight routine I found online.  I felt pretty sore for the last couple days, but I didn't hurt anything so I'm going to start it again today once I have time this afternoon.  It's astonishing how much better I feel when I exercise compared to just sitting at a computer and shoveling food into my mouth.

I'm gonna try to post here more regularly.  I like /fit/ boards and I think it's important for myself to track what I'm doing, and it'll be better for the board to have more traffic.

Completed a full 3 day workout last week for the first time, should've kept to the routine much more but I finally did it. Preworkout is a miracle but I'm also worried I'm going to be dependent on it and artifically inflate my gains and be unable to do them naturally.

The most important part is to never skip a day, otherwise you'll lose your momentum and everything will start hurting again once you pick it back up. It's like a pull motor, you can't let it stall no matter what.

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.

I'm lucky that I've always lived in places that don't fluoridate the water supply, or on property with a well. Still have to watch out for bottled water and coolers though.
What surprises me is how hostile some "people" get about the issue. It's always vaxtards (even pre covid) too who act like you're personally attacking them if you don't want to poison yourself.

Þere have been studies where þe calcification of pineal glands has been measured, but I don't know how to accurately assess þe level on an individual scale, outside of intuition - which is someþing þe more spiritually inclined claim þat þe pineal gland is largely responsible for. Ways to quickly help decalcify þe gland include consuming apple cider vinegar, turmeric, and iodine, of which þe last seaweed is þe food most rich in. Þere's also a shamanic ritual involving "Rapé" root (real name, not a joke) þat purportedly decalcifies þe pineal gland.

I also didn't realize until just now researching it, þat a calcified pineal gland can possibly increase one's risk of Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, migraines, and kidney diseases, as well as vice versa. (Sauce: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5620462/)

I went to the gym for about two months and a half straight weighing just about as much as him and gained about 10 kg and could bench around 30 kg at my peak, so I figure his progress is about average for what you'd expect from most.

>Are you looking like the Michelin tire man yet?
No way, that's like 1+ year of constant exercise at least, he's not even ottermode yet. He probably just looks like a healthy not skeleton-yn not noodly armed person, who can flex a good looking chunk of meat on his gun.

I'm in a somewhat same boat as I'm roughly 130lbs and 6'1. I've been working out and eating what I can for around 4 years now, I got "decent" looking muscle here and there but overall I still look like a hungry skeleton. I've struggled with weight gain my whole life and I'm starting to think this most be related to some weird ass disease or who knows. 
As for my diet: I'm poor af and everything is fucking expensive here, at best I can afford for meat or chicken once a week sometimes less, I drink a milkshake with a banana and oats on the regular but to no avail

Post your goals, short term, mid term and long range. Ideally, include deadlines for accountability. 
Personally, my goal is primarily to increase training volume. I'm aiming to complete at least 1 week at 10 hours of training by the end of June. I want to hit 36 hours by the end of the year. I managed somewhere between 25 and 30 hours a week for about 2 months at my best more than 5 years ago so it's doable, though ambitious.
