I don't see how.
>be prepared to pay $200+ a month, $140 for a gi, and a $100 registration fee
>not paying enough attention to proper execution of technique
You got ripped off, tool.
Those fees are absolutely standard for MMA and BJJ in Canada. I paid $175 a month plus $50 registration, both of those prices are less than some places. The head coach was a retired professional fighter, and there were 5 to 8 active active professional fighters training there at any given time. I was making good money at the time so it wasn't a big deal.
The Jiujitsu gi they usually try to sell you are horrendously over-priced and covered in ugly logos and shit, so I said I already had one and bought a Judo gi from a martial arts supply store for about $80 bucks, half the price of a BJJ gi.
As for not paying attention to proper technique, I was referring to how this is often a problem with BJJ in general, not a specific problem with the gym I went to per se. It's a pedagogical issue, there is almost always too much free rolling in BJJ classes for beginners, who need to practice 2 person pre-arranged takedown and submission drills, which is Superior to free rolling for actually learning proper technique. Free rolling should only come in after 3 months of training, but zero attention span normalfaggots might get bored with drills and conditioning and take their money elsewhere so no one does it that way.
The fact is, as much as mmafags like to crow about being the "the most hardcore and realz and bestest" it's too damn expensive for most people, and the karate dojo down the street only charges $60 a month with
Post old /fit/ banners or make some new ones.

i'm thin as fuck 55kg (120 lbs) and i'm manlet 177cm (5'8). i have a few dumbbells at home. how do i start building muscle and getting fit? i'm so fucking weak and i just can't stand it. my hands are very thin and it's starting to make me look like a fag. i need to know that if push goes to shove i'll be able to defend myself. seriously help. i think i need:
>diet plan (im neet so no 20 euro salads)
>people to watch/read
>whatever else i don't know
THANK YOU ANONS
i'll look into the proper form of it. should be easy enough since all i need is a chair.
what about lower body exercises? legs, thighs, lower back etc?******
i'm being a retarded nigger again excuse me
>i heard i shouldn't because it burns calories and that's not good if i'm trying to bulk / dirty bulk.
Obsessing over calories that much is autistic. Running is good for your heart which in turn makes the rest of your body more efficient. Plus you can get the calories you burn from running back in like a few spoonfuls of peanut butter anyways. Avoiding cardio because you're trying to gain weight is just an excuse lazy retards use.
The overwhelming majority of weight gain and loss will come almost entirely from your eating habits. Exercise is maybe 25% of actual weight gain and loss. On average beginner lifters can achieve 1-2lbs of muscle gain per month for the first 2 years of lifting. This roughly looks like 3-5lbs a month on the scale with water weight and fat gain since you can't really only gain muscle.
>what is dirty bulking and is that true?
Dirty bulking is literally just eating like shit. It's just what people say when they've given up on eating proper food but are still lifting. You'll find a lot of these retarded phrases in fitness.
>what about lower body exercises? legs, thighs, lower back etc?
Legs and back are difficult because they're very strong muscles that require a lot to stress. Various squats like a one legged squat if you can and maybe wall sits are probably the best I can think of
3rd day update:
my body is sore as fuck. i don't how getting gang raped by 20 niggers feels, but i believe the soreness would be similar. everything feels lighter lol. i ran yesterday. i did 600m before i lost my breath completely. today i got to 1km straight running. feels pretty good. i'm doing good with the pushups (did 30 w/o breaks), the dumbbell exercises, dips, sit ups etc... i feel more energetic and my desire to eat is back to normal i think. i'm eating more and doing more. two spoons of peanut butter, 1 spoon of honey and. 5 L of milk after exercise.
dinner and lunch include chicken, lettuce and/or spaghetti noodles/rice. (i had fish yesterday tho)
breakfasts are eggs and toast + glass of fresh milk (my neighbor has a farm with cows and i asked him for fresh milk. i actually went there and milked me some cows.)
is all good and i'm pumped up for tomorrow and the next few months.
>running is good for your heart
that is so true. running is good and i don't care what that faggot thinks. thank you.
>weight gain and loss will come almost entirely from your eating habits
i haven't seen my weight since 3 days ago. i'll check it after 2 weeks. hopefully i'll gain even a little weight.
>Dirty bulking is literally just eating like shit.
fuck that. i don't like fast food anyway. although sometimes i have to eat from a shit fast food joint. probably once every two months.
>like a one legged squat
Chill out chill out chill the fuck out while sore.
No running unless you wanna delet your gains, you hear me?
Good for you. Keeping it simple and consistent and you'll see consistent improvement. Just tweak things slowly, it takes many months or years to grasp everything involving fitness perfectly in relation to your lifestyle, body, goals, and finances.
While rest is important cardio will not kill muscle gain unless you're a literal fucking marathon runner. In fact basically every study shows it helps increase lifting strength. Unless you're hauling ass for over an hour straight you're not going to be losing any actual muscle mass or potential strength gains from cardio. Stop being a lazy fuck, faggot.
Do it for her YOURSELF Edition
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 push, just glide.
So I ran about 3.2 miles in under 31 minutes, so my mile pace is a little over 9 minutes per mile. I'm actually pretty close to my pre-winter pace, but I haven't had it in me to push for another 10k. I'm about 295lbs now, but I expect to lose that weight again. I think I'm going to the track tomorrow to properly time my mile and hopefully I can get it close if not under 8 minutes. I might take up rock climbing so I can't be bulky anymore.
>26 minutes 40 seconds
Wimped out of doing the 3 mile. I'm sure I can do it next week though..
>42 minutes 45 seconds
I'm going to try to make it to 4 miles quicker than I made it to 3.
>12 minutes 16 seconds
Did my run yesterday instead of today.
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..
Post about conditioning, technique, theory, training methods and frequency, sport fighting, self defence, fighters, and martial arts cinema.
We can't interrupt the bread & circuses goyim, the nu-gladiators get to train but not the plebs.
Aside from a few elite gyms martial arts as we know it is done. Best case scenario for the future is Okinawan/Chinese style training in backyards/garages/graveyards at night with 1 teacher and 2 or 3 students paying under the table.
Its pretty lenient what counts. Like why not train in wrestling or judo. So long as someone in that school competes you can train and no one cares?
Where I live no one has said anything just that you have to keep a mask on sometimes. I've seen kids tkd and the like still having classes and sparring and they aren't related to the olympics at all.
>under-the-table midnight graveyard martial arts
It sounds so cool/spooky you know everyone doing it are a bunch of larpers.
>at the responsible department
>Its pretty lenient what counts. Like why not train in wrestling or judo. So long as someone in that school competes you can train and no one cares?
That's not how it is where I am.
>It sounds so cool/spooky you know everyone doing it are a bunch of larpers
No one actually does that anymore, it was just a reference to old school (100+ years ago) karate training.
>Like why not train in wrestling or judo. So long as someone in that school competes you can train and no one cares?
That's not how it works, I would need to be a competitive athlet in that sport.
We have a lot of burocracy here and the corona rules change literally weekly, that's why I send an E-Mail to the local sports-related department to clarify if I am allowed to train or not.
>Anyways how do you train martial arts regarding the ongoing corona-restrictions?
Meet with buddies to train in places away from spying eyes. Do solo drills and become the guy that does one punch so good that he is feared by Bruce Lee.
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.
If you have a simple one-liner question, ask it here.
Is bottled water really "better" than tap water? I know in third world countries like American they don't have drinkable tap water, but I'm talking about the fluoride they put into drinkable tap water. One would assume if fluoride is in drinkable tap water it would be in most bottled waters too right?
I know the true solution is to just distill your water or have a well, but that's that attainable for everyone.
Should say on the label (does in Canada anyway), some brands have fluoride, some don't.
Why do you care if you're drinking fluoride?
He probably doesn't want a calcified pineal gland. I don't.
I've been kinda bloated and I'm not sure why. I can still stomach vacuum and I don't need to shit, I don't do any peds ether.
Any of you experience this?
