>/fit/ is number 3
>we're all going to make it
In a certain way these are mutually exclusive.
"We all" is meant to refer to the denizens of /fit/, anon. We can hardly expect /hikki/ to make it, after all. Also Number 3 is bretty gud all things considered. It's not like /v/ will ever be dethroned.
/fit/ is 5 AT BEST. The list is as follows
2. /b/ (will soon overtake /v/ if rulecuckery continues)
5. Tied by /x/ and /fit/
I personally hope /x/ prevails since most of the shit posted here is just crossposts and the BO samefagging.
I know it's not usually that active, it was just a moment.
/x/ is full of underagefags and shitposting and not even entertaining shitposts at that. As far as BO samefagging goes, I doubt it, since he says he doesn't care if the board is active and I believe him since he doesn't even bother to make a post every day.
I'm not sure what precisely you mean by crossposts in this context, since to my knowledge there aren't any other active /fit/s on the webring.
>/b/ (will soon overtake /v/ if rulecuckery continues)
>single topic board which was made way earlier and was only ahead because of that is eventually gonna get taken over by random/all topics board

I'd wish I had a degree in imageboards like you
also I hate that gif, that animation is HOT GARBAGE
Dump infographs, workout plans, diet lists, recipes, etc. here.
Uh. Thanks, I will.
So basically, if you do the exact opposite of this you'll be on mega-steroids?
The only thing that's equivalent to mega steroids are mega steroids, but that said, there are some hidden red pills in that image if you reverse it. Notably the bit about hand sanitizer (very relevant these days), and alcohol.
Quite a bit is missing though if you want to naturally increase test in a systematic way.
Anon's guide to boosting test, in order of importance:
>prioritise sleep, 8 hours of high quality sleep is non-negotiable
>jerking off crashes testosterone, so stop that shit, having sex with real women boosts it, but don't obsess over this
>eat lots, especially protein (1 gram per pound of body weight per day), avoid keto as carbs are androgen precursors
>strength training, according to my current understanding, usually a full body, 3 day a week routine is ideal for boosting test
>maintain a manly mindset, if you're not an alpha, fake it till you make it
>find and eliminate anything that triggers unnecessary cortisol release
>eliminate micro-nutrient deficiencies, especially zinc and vitamin d
>keep your balls cool, cold showers and especially cold or ice baths are great here, you can also put ice packs in your underwear
>if possible, expose your balls to sunlight, especially while working out, supposedly artificial UV works as well
>moderate, regular, steady state cardio (think running once a week) lowers resting heart rate, makes you more anabolic
fuck, the bit about hand sanitizer's got me pretty bad 'cuz i'm a pretty big germaphobe and end up using it often (though i do rinse it off), guess i've gotta make some changes
I looked into it a bit more and it turns out that triclosan shit is pretty insidious. It's banned in the EU but if you live in the US or Canada check your shampoo, soap, toothpaste and generally any hygiene product for it.
Post old /fit/ banners or make some new ones.

where do you think you are?
How about this?
Also BO should add >>795
Seconding this. Come on Grizzly, hibernation time is over now.
Do you guys have people in your gym who really seem to stick out? I have a couple.
Old Balance guy
>early to mid 60s
>does every exercise on a bosu ball
>shoulder press in tree pose
>bicep curls in warrior III
>mirin his mobility
>doesn't even quarter rep
>more like 1/64
>not exaggerating when I say the weights move only an inch per rep
I remember the thots that were there just to meet chads and would only pretend to work out.
I can't really think of anyone specific who's very eccentric, but I do wonder why every 60+ dude feels compelled to walk around the locker room with his balls hanging out.
Pressure and heat on the testes diminish testosterone production. This is why I have banished underwear from my life.
This is a fair point, but the difference is that you probably don't look like an overweight bloodhound with your clothes off despite weighing maybe 140 pounds, nor do you stand beside me when I'm washing my hands with the base off your dick rubbing all over the countertop.
I often see a very elderly fellow at my gym who's usually doing abdominal exercises. And when I say elderly, I mean the guy is very old, and frail. But I guess it's what's best for him to feel like a spry 50 year old instead of 80.
greetings and salutations, /fit/izens
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
welp, it's been 3 months now? here's an update.
>got a gym subscription pumping pure iron. benching pretty good 35 kg i think 75lbs
>today i got to 7km of running. then 3km walking.
>gained 8kg (20lbs)
>i look /fit/ but there's a lot of room to get even /fit/ter.
i fucking love you guys. if i can do it, you can too. 3 months of pure hard work got me here. and it passed like a week really. i'll go for an extra three months. wish me lucks anons.
Are you looking like the Michelin tire man yet? I'm not too much into getting stupidly ripped, but I can see the effort that went into it.
How's your progress for for someone who doesn't do bench presses? 35kg isn't too much of an indicator for me.
im fucking proud of u anon
we're all gonna do it bros
>are you looking like the Michelin tire man yet
>35kg isn't too much of an indicator for me.
yeah it's not a lot. i can actually do more but i was advised to stick to 35kg until i can do 50 to 70 presses without shitting myself. slow and easy wins the race anon
thanks man. i really appreciate your posts they've helped a ton. i just came back from gym i go back jogging. 6km how are you doing?
>How's your progress for for someone who doesn't do bench presses? 35kg isn't too much of an indicator for me.
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.
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
>I'm now 279
Euroniggers like myself will never adapt to your retarded unit system. What the fuck are 279, huh? Sounds very fat to me.
I might try this but I hate cardio so god damn much, people i know(not fat) have ruined their knees, be careful with that crap. What i do is run 26 stairs to the 13th floor up and down as fast as i can isnt that good enough?
focus on losing the fat first before bulking, since that inherently involves adding some fat with the muscle. get lean before you get mean.
In spite of having seen that image many times already, that still caught me offguard.
I'm 7ft 2.1m tall, so I wear it well. Hell, I wore "24 stones" well enough, too, but I'm done with powerlifting.
I'm going to see how good I look at 260 or so and then evaluate my options.
This is your /fit/ pdf library. I can't vouch for everything, because I'm still working through my collection so I'll just post what I have and let anon sort it out.
>I won't be here for a long time

So close, yet so far.

BLOATLORD FIX YOUR SHIT
Actually that gif is gonna be really annoying with it on autoplay. Could you delete it please?
THEN FIX YOUR SHIT
I'm leaving this pdf that did catch my attention out of the bunch and I have found online.
Fucking retarded /fit/izen didn't even bother checking out the integrity of the files so now I have to find each of the pdfs individually.
https://files.catbox.moe/kgun9w.pdf (this is the hojo undo pdf)
Post about conditioning, technique, theory, training methods and frequency, sport fighting, self defence, fighters, and martial arts cinema.
Why is that one video silent? If you have the entire collection, mind if you post the entirety of it either here or on any file sharing site?
Speaking of martial arts, I wished there were capoeira dojos readily available were I live. It's very stylish, I tell you.
>why is that one video silent
I dunno, I thought it had audio, it might be have been fucked up in the conversion.
Here is the full "Revolution of Kicking" video.
The audio once again cuts out halfway in, but you should be able to figure out what's being talked about and follow along regardless.
Posturefag here, I won't be around to answer questions and shit for while. I'm going to try to check back in around Christmas, so don't let the board die while I'm gone niggers.
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.
>have some bagels goyi... valued customer
Update on goals, I'm on track so far. My short term goal was ten hours of training in one week before the end of June. I trained 1 hour a day from the 10th to the 19th, with today and yesterday off, so I just have to bump it up by 3 hours in the next 7 days.
To clarify, the one week 36 hours training goal is just for 1 week, not something I intend to keep up. The way I plan on going about it is to do one 3 hour session in the morning, one 3 hour session in the evening for six days. I plan on making an attempt soon, maybe from July 5th to the 10th, just to gauge how far off I am. Maybe I'll make it sooner than I thought I could. We'll see.
Reporting my missed short term goal. I only trained for 6 hours this week. I need to develop my working capacity more. In my defence there has been a heatwave and it was 100 degrees Fahrenheit inside the house, nevermind outside where I usually train. Anyway, I'll keep working at it.
My main goal is losing my stomach before bulking back up in a "cleaner" way rather than just getting fat. I started keto 2 weeks ago and I've already lost a bunch of the initial water weight and some gut fat (down about 10 pounds). I'm probably about a month more out from being at the point where I can see my abs.
After that I want to be at 200 pounds and actually look good (wide in the chest, not round in the gut, for example) which will probably take to the end of the year to even begin to achieve.
As for weights, if I can squat 280 by the end of this year I'll be ecstatic. I'm at ~200 right now, started with just the bar mid-January.
If you have a simple one-liner question, ask it here.
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.
