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.

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?

Why are you impersonating Grizzly, faggot. There's nothing faggier than hiding behind someone else's achievements.
Change your BO name, or else.
Got a gym membership today, I'll go in on Wednesday for my first real workout since March of last year. Got a few things to get ready in the next couple of days hence the delay. I've already put down $95 for a down payment and committed for a year so no turning back now.
Continuing to find the right ratio of stuff to put in daily protein shake, right now it's
>two eggs
>whole milk yogurt
>various fruits including bananas, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries
>whole milk for liquidity
today's turned out good but the seeds in the berries are really annoying. i'll add protein powder tomorrow once I begin lifting, that shit's expensive
Cucked out again, didn't have time to go to the gym. Gym bag wasn't ready and I didn't have enough time in the morning to get my shit together, nor did i want to show up to a gym unprepared. Tomorrow for sure.

Finally went today, felt damn good to pick things up and put them down again. Still annoyed at how much mass I've lost over the past year and felt like a beta bitch using nothing but a bar with two 5lb weights for the standing press, but nobody cares what anyone else is doing at a gym. The lifting will continue until gains improve.

Why won't you go with the pool, if you know you're going to get frowned upon in the fitness jew?
Besides, swimming is a valuable skill that you need to practice if the negro apocalypse ever breaks out. Did you know that 95% of niggers in the UK don't even know how to float in the water, let alone swim?
Replies: >>979
I haven't set foot in a pool for an actual workout since I was 10 years old, I don't even know what I'd have to do. Wouldn't that be more cardio instead of bulking? Is there an infograph for this?
So the general guides say not to store fatty foods in plastic zipper bags, but, does chicken count as "fatty?"
It sounds dumb as hell, but, I don't exactly notice any difference in taste if I store some chicken breast leftovers in a bag and re-heat it in my air fryer.

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.

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.
I just want to stop being extremely skinny. Alongside that i can already do 40 pushups under 30 seconds, i want to push that to 50 in about  2 months. Some abs would be great to go with that but it could wait.

I am fed up. I am done with meme workouts and diet plans including cardio, running, and everything else. It's time to drop the bullshit miracle workouts and go back to what worked: just fucking lift. I don't care that a gym membership at any other place besides (((Planet Fitness))) is $45 a month, I will not step foot in that anti-lifter shithole as long as I live. The gains begin tomorrow.

I've a rough relationship with music. Whenever it plays, it gives me a mood boost for a brief time, but at large I feel my focus fades away as I'm consumed by the music instead of the exercise.

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!

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.
Squatch back. Yesterday, after a 5k run, I clocked in at 273.8, meaning I've lost nearly 50lbs from a little more than a year ago, 70lbs from my peak, and 10lbs from the upper bound of my goal weight range, which I set in October according to >>338. You can fucken make it.
I know that this board is pretty dead, but I did my first 10k in months. I didn't really intend on running for so long, but I clocked in at 269. I'll report back once I get under 260. It's really incredible, because according to >>257, which was posted eleven months ago, I was just trying to get to 280.

If there's a chance that past contributors to the thread still lurk, I hope that you've achieved your goals, or at least still getting there.

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.

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.
