It may have been brief, but it was glorious. How did it feel to run an active board, Grizzly?
Also I hope you screenshot that shit shit because I forgot to.
I felt like a chimpanzee hyped up on Xanax let loose in a nuclear power plant. It was amazing.
I literally just forgot about it. If a board doesn't have a post rate above a certain level things like this can happen.
Unfortunately, the animefags, tv autists, and gamer subhumans usually seem to have the best boards, and multiple good ones at that, probably because of their very nature as chair-confined blobs who have the capacity to spew autism online the entire day without stopping.
This makes the places they gather really active while I suppose the kind of people who'd be interested in /fit/ don't tend to post as much, for better and for worse. That's my theory, anyway. I'm not too sure how we can solve this.
One step might be to try to vacuum up users from various broken/dead /fit/ boards and we could all agree to go to one place.
In all likelihood I will also forget that I made this post.
Dump infographs, workout plans, diet lists, recipes, etc. here.
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
Anyone have anything specifically for fixing a skeleton mode body?
Uh. Thanks, I will.
Post old /fit/ banners or make some new ones.
Here I ended up making another one. Got bored of seeing the Predator one all the time, see if you like it. Maybe I'll finish that one day >>43

where do you think you are?
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.
>David Bolton - The Lost Secret to a Great Body_ Building Muscles in 20 Minutes a Day with Stupidly Light Weights-David Bolton (2012).epub
I'm thinking of giving the workout detailed in the book a shot. I'd have to order some 5 pound dumbbells, but they're pretty cheap at that weight. I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts on it if anyone decides to give the book a read, or if the workout has been tried.
Another Sandow pic, probably my favourite, Arthur Saxon, who still holds the official record for the "bent press" today, Otto Arco who is another muscle control expert like Maxick, Alfred Moss is simply well developed, and Adolf Nordquest is notable for being another student of Professor Attila, and therefore further representing the potentialities of the light dumbbell system.
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.

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

How fat we talkin?
Day 4 today. Skipped yesterday because my right foot was aching hard, slept on it and it still isn't much better. Tried to run my usual route but it became obvious right away my foot wouldn't take it. Couldn't even run on my toes it was so painful. Ended up doing about half my route. Also doesn't help that the pants I have don't hold my phone well so it keeps thrashing around in my pocket or almost falling out, need to get one of those armstraps.
Just enough for it to be annoying. When I bunch it up it's about a fistful, and a bit more around my thighs.
Day 5 yesterday, leg stopped killing me and it's starting to get easier now. Ran on my toes for a good 1/3 of the route instead of just the first block. May have something to do with the boomer zero i had earlier but I feel myself getting better
Day 6, running on my toes is not working. I keep pulling something either in my leg or foot and can barely move for two days afterwards. Right now my right foot is aching real hard, and I don't even know what I'm doing wrong. I'll try to take it easier and keep the pressure off of it.
Eggman reporting back. With the heat, I've started running less and swimming more. I've passed the 290 threshold and am now comfortably fluctuate between 285 and 289. I'm looking a lot more toned even when I was bulking and I've gone down several pant sizes to the point where my wardrobe doesn't fit me anymore, but I still have a considerable amount of fat to lose. I'm going to guess that I'll start looking really good if I get under 260.
Post about conditioning, technique, theory, training methods and frequency, sport fighting, self defence, fighters, and martial arts cinema.
I don't really care what you think either, I just don't want others following your terrible advice. 15 years ago, I used to think like you, I thought I was hot shit, and that MMA fighters weren't all that.
Yes, pro fighters are a separate class from regular people. Let me break it down with 2 sample individuals.
>joe blow, has a day job, goes to 3 classes a week, 5 a week in the spring. training for 5 years, can maul any untrained dude
>max powers, trains nearly 40 hours a week for 5 years, has a professional nutritionist who monitors his hormones, macros, biofeedback and formulates meal plans, has a dedicated strength and conditioning coach, has separate coaches for boxing, wrestling, jiujitsu, muay thai and an MMA coach to integrate all the above and work on fight specific strategy and training, and is on steroids
You bet your ass these are two classes of people.
>Doubles-down on false dichotomy
Do you have any videos on how to practice the lateral kick/yop chagui? I have been recently struggling with that one.
Please respond, anon. It's been 5 days. I need my practice on my yop chagui.
Sorry bro, I've been AFK. This video is pretty good, but only covers the rear leg side kick. Should be fine since the rear leg kick is a lot harder to do well.
What are you struggling with in particular? Balance, height, form or something else? I find that usually working on the obliques (gif related is good for this) and abductor muscles of the leg tend to work wonders for the side kick and hook kick.
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.
Before we proceed, are you Grizzly?
i am he
>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.
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.

My coworker showed me Beast in Black a while ago, they're a solid 8/10 and really get you pumped.
If you have a simple one-liner question, ask it here.
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?
What are your thoughts on "circuit" bodyweight workouts(as in not reps but just repeating an exercise for a minute or some other interval)? Specifically, what do you /fit/izens think of embed related in particular? I've tried a couple of days and it seems like a challenging routine, but I'm concerned about any possible injuries since you're not resting at all inbetween sets or if there's a better bodyweight routine I could be doing until gyms start reopening.
I like circuits, I just posted a martial arts based circuit that I started a week ago.
That Athean-X workout seems a little complicated. It's almost as if they want to sell you a program or something. I honestly don't even know what half that shit is. You're probably better off just keeping it really simple.
>burpees, 2 minutes
>pull-ups, 2 minutes
>skip rope, 2 minutes
>repeat until destroyed
That's a time efficient, very high intensity 6 minute circuit, consisting of 3 exercises that will hit every part of your body. Easy to keep track of and quantify, count the number of rounds completed on the circuit, but focus on clean reps with good form rather than volume, which is a benefit of going by time rather than reps x sets. Modify round time to your needs.
How effective is fasting for losing weight? What's the ideal way to do it? I'd assume it'd be something like fasting every other day.
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.
My goal right now is to lose the stomach/thigh fat that has been an annoyance to me for several years now. I'm not overweight, but I hate being able to grab a chuck of my gut in my hand, esspecially since I've been working on my abs but they won't show because of the fat in front of it. I also keep swearing off sugar but always come back to it for one reason or another. Highly considering getting a Planet Fitness membership because that's the closest and cheapest gym to me even though it's a normalnig hangout that actively discourages effort.
