/monarchy/ thanks /fit/ for this gift.
>not even purple
This version has purple.
Lately I have been feeling guilty at how dead this board is. That is mostly (entirely) my fault since I have not been leading by example and let this board die. So with that being said, I ask you this: what are some ideas you have to bring life back into the board?
>inb4 do my job for me
Dump infographs, workout plans, diet lists, recipes, etc. here.
Well you can't just talk about shaving your asshole without showing the result, now can you?
What does, "Rest of your required caloric from fat" mean from the Keto.jpg?
Not entirely sure, however I can no longer recommend Keto simply because of the difficulty in maintaining it both physically and mentally and the toll it takes on the rest of the body. you are much better off with something like Leangains which uses a high protein intake (but not ONLY protein) and intermittent fasting to get results. it is much easier to stay with for long periods of time (going at about half a year now, albeit with more cheat days than I am proud to admit) and gets results. the trick is patience.

Consume the rest of your required calories as fat
Post old /fit/ banners or make some new ones.
I WAS TOLD THERE WOULD BE A /fit/ 2.0
I'm trying, get fags from other boards to come here and talk about their gainz. but don't make threads for it, that's haram
i'd make it look better but Pinta fucking sucks
I come bearing gifts
Post your /fit/ related videos.
How the fuck do you jump rope like that?
I don't know, are you a drawing?
You should try to judge fantasy away from reality.
No but I've seen people do that one leg at a time thing. I can only do it with both legs at once and only if I do a pre-jump beforehand.
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.
After I finish the 100 pushups challenge I'm gonna start this routine. Anyone have recommendation for light dumbbells with rounded grips? All the neoprene coated ones have straight bars which I don't think is as good for gripping, and the rubber ones smell bad. I really don't want to pay more than $25 for a pair of light weights.
maybe you can be the first to actually give an update on how well this really works.
Every time someone wants to test it out you never hear from them again
They've ascended beyond the realm of mortals and are exercising with Hercules on the slopes of Olympus. I promise I will update the journal thread.

If you have a simple one-liner question, ask it here.
I had a similar issue but with my neck. I had constant muscle pain and couldn't sleep well for a couple days, no matter which fucking side I turned to. I thought it was my pillow but that would've been odd because I've been using it for years now. And trying to sleep without just made me totally uncomfortable. After some time I managed to diagnose and solve the issue:
>sleep on side
>outside arm resting on my hip/side area
>weight of arm compresses lungs together so I can't breathe as well
>instinctively try to keep it raised from my side in order to ease the pressure
>neck muscle constantly tensing up because of that
I tried resting my arm in a slightly different position and relaxing my shoulder entirely so I wasn't using it and it went away. Next time you go to bed try to position yourself as you normally would and check if you're doing something similar, then try to relax your muscles so you're not tensing up. Hope this helped.
Hello /fit/ my blood test results just arrived and I seem to have 128.00 pg/ml of free testosterone.
Is this average or I'm now a certified soycuck? I dont really understand any of this and google gives me conflicting results along with typical "average T levels" by today ((( science )))
not a scientist but i think it comes down to how you actually look and feel. if you look in the mirror do you look like a masculine gigachad? or are your bordering on trap/tranny territory? do you feel like you could beat the shit out of a bear, or would you rather fly into an autistic rage when you fuck up a jump in your zelda speedrun?
lift, increase protein intake, eat onions like they're apples, and you'll get there.
This retard actually improves his tips when given feedback. What a wholesome fellow
How do I loosen my hamstrings?
I've seen a lot of guides on splits but nothing on vertical leg movement. I can't even do pistol squats because my off leg can't go more than 45 degrees from the other leg.
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.
Powerwolf is God-tier for getting pumped up, idk how "people" can get hyped up to rap "music" in their overpriced Beats "headphones"

Iced Earth is great for this, shame they broke up because of Schaeffer's Capitol shenanigans.

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
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?
Got a dumbbell set for Christmas, gonna start lifting again without a gym membership. Feels good.
Squats, pushups, and triceps extensions yesterday. Never noticed how much I was lacking in the latter until then, they hurt today but it's the good kind of hurt.
Did deadlifts, barbell row, and cal extensions yesterday. This serves as a nice stopgap until I get access to another gym soon.
Squats, pushups, and triceps extensions.
Worked on arms yesterday
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).
