Currently not taking on any mods/vols/janis, but maybe later if this board gets big SWOL
Honestly, I don't know. All I can say in my experience with small boards is that activity begets activity. But even so, given how dead most boards like this are doomed to be, even 4chan/fit/ is still a better option for the average anon despite all the shit clogging up that catalog.
I don't know if this is an issue you can solve, it's a much bigger issue that affects all of these imageboards in general.
Expose the amount of bots and glowniggers who cooperate with the tranny jannies on 4cuck, other than that there isn't much you can do.
I just haven't been using this board because things are going smoothly so far. Most of the activity on 4cuck /fit/ is worthless garbage anyways
Man I really want this board to be more active because the alternative are shit, just like >>1706 said 4cuck /fit/ is garbage and from what this is the only /fit/ alternative.
I think the only option is to advertise to outside sources maybe like forums, other imageboards discord.
I will crush you with my dumbbells if you ever do that, anon.
Do you want this board to be like /b/?
/b/ isn't shit because of the users. /b/ is shit because the mods are retarded.
Dump infographs, workout plans, diet lists, recipes, etc. here.
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
Hitler was a skinnyfat autist who developed motor neurone diseases in his 40s. Just because you like his politics doesn’t mean you need to emulate every single aspect of his daily life
>3 years later
Suck my cock
If Hitler had done GOMAD we would've been rid of the jewish menace today
Post old /fit/ banners or make some new ones.
I come bearing gifts
I kept this one from the old 2hu VN anon on /b/.
I hate having to look at her disgusting pits.
Don't be a little bitch
If you have a simple one-liner question, ask it here.
Depends on what movements you want to train your body to be good at or comfortable with. I'd recommend regular squats with free weights anyways.
Why do I feel like I want to throw up after training to failure even though I know that actually throwing up would feel terrible?
Is there a book that's like a cookbook only it just lists different kinds of exercises? States what equipment you need, time estimate, aerobic/not, what it's good for, has some pictures to show how to do it?
Is there a website like based.cooking only for exercises?
I'm curious to know what (You)r typical workout day looks like, Anon.
Lifts, reps, rest, etc.
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
>jew with ginger hair that goes hard each workout
>trainer that looks exactly like CIA but a bit older
>short dangerhair trainer with her young daughter that sits in one of the upside down wooden stools with her tablet, cat ear headphones, and giant teddy bear
>thot that uses the bar as a scratching post
>ginger girl that's basically the gym jani
>gym owner's german shepherd that sits by the desk the whole time, he is a good boy
I would name some if I knew them, but that would require me to go to a gym.
But mom says gyms are for fags, so it's a no-no.
your mom is gay
Sorry you have a shitty mom, man.
Checked and Heiled for posterity.
I have someone similar to old-balance guy, but not exactly. My major gym character is one that is unlike any other gym character I've seen online.

>She told my dad "call me beefcake". I shit you not.

This is the post of all time.
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?
Worked on arms today. Still can't do a full pullup but I can see my pecs are gaining mass.
Came back from vacation and did deadlifts and overhead press.
i know maybe like two people read this but even the people who lurk are very important to me and i hope that your gains are large and your estrogen levels low.
Bench press, barbell row, pullups, and triceps extensions.
Some guy came over and said I was doing barbell rows wrong, that my back shouldn't be parallel with the ground and should instead be more at a 45 degree angle. The few videos I've seen on how to do it properly show them parallel, not at an angle. Who's in the right here?
>try doing trap exercises with a machine
>it's set to 50 pounds
>barely feel anything
>raise it to 75 pounds
>lift the entire front off the ground along with the weighs
>tfw the machine maxed out before I did
Hit all my reps except pullups, which is pretty good considering I took too long of a break.
You get the idea.
Which exercises have the greatest risk of injury if done incorrectly?
Anything that goes against the natural way of moving things, like those squat racks where you're pushing down instead of up. Or any machine that has a risk of overextending limbs. Deadlifts if done wrong (which is very easy to do) will turn you into a cripple.
god i hate watching snap city videos
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.
I'm taking the Zasspill lads, wish me luck.
Wtf bros, this shit actually works, I actually became stronger. I just did 4 clean dead hang chin ups. At the beginning of the year, I tried getting into bodyweight stuff but all I could do was 1 shitty kipped chin up, and I didn't want to do negatives because they were really rough on my joints and tendons, so I didn't pursue it any further.
I'll continue tugging on my chain, but I might start throwing in some chin ups into my workouts as well, now that I can actually do them.
Good to hear you found something that works for you, keep on lifting
I'm happy for you! Keep us updated, I'm curious about the validity of these old systems.
general food thread, I suppose
question: Is milk, cheese, butter completely comped due to the hormones they pump the cows full of? Or do the benefits of these foods outweigh that poison?
I don't knnnow in what way nuts would be useful for gaining mass if I were to make a diet on them. They are generally pricey and they can hardly be cooked into anything. So I generally eat them raw, which again works mostly as a snack rather than an actual meal/sidemeal.
And about onions, they were high on proteins? Thought they had metals, vitamins or something else, like the spinach is rich in iron. I know my grandfather always eats plenty of raw onions, and I know him to work consistently hard on the countryside, even well into his 80's. Absolutaly respectable I would say.
Anon, my post was about peanuts, which are legumes. Here is the nutritional of peanuts. Also, yeah you're right. Onions are more valuable for their other metals and vitamins. Another thing they're good for is adding flavor to meats and even other vegetables as I mentioned with the green beans and onions stir fry.
I am also curious about this, considering how fucked inflation is right now buying meat is about to get a lot harder and i am also about to be unemployed, beans are dirt fucking cheap but I don't know what their ratio in protein/fat/carbs is to a lean steak. i've been doing leangains since January with good results (-25lbs of fat) but it has a very specific diet regimen that I don't want to throw off.
Any beans will work as a cheap proteins, so do oats.
This is relevant to my interests, because I need your help with a recipe /fit/.
I'm trying to figure out a "barebones almost-beef bean burger" recipe that has the non-mandatory ingredients omitted (meaning, I can add whatever the fuck I want to it within reason, without being afraid of fucking it up.).
Youtube and reddit are usually decent for recipes, but I'm losing my mind getting fucking drowned in recipes that are either vegan trash or add way too fucking many things. Fuck. Even if I add minus tags to reduce the utter hell of shitty search results, I FUCKING STILL get recipes that just feel like there's far too much non-mandatory bullshit even if it says "simple" in the recipe.
Here's what I do know bean burgers need
*** Of course, beans. from what I've seen, any variety that exists in a can can be pureed for burgers, even chickpeas. It just needs to go through the usual bean-cooking process.
*** Something to keep it stable but mushy enough to shape it before you bake it.
*** Flavors (which as for the barebones part, these will be added in on a per-cook basis, and in this recipe are omitted)
Is there a guide for what to eat/not eat if you want to bulk when you have IBS/gastric colitis? Malabsorption is a huge issue for me, a lot of what I eat simply doesn't get absorbed since my immune system now thinks that my lower intestine is out to get me which is entirely my fault from eating too much processed garbage. This rules out a lot of food used for gains like red meat or anything high in protein since it's too much for my body to handle.
is there anyone training with varicocele?
I got diagnosed with grade 1 bilateral varicocele and I stopped the gym for 4 months... 4 fucking months bro. it pisses the shit outta me, doctors tell me I can't lift heavy because of it especially compound exercises (going to the gym without touching a bar doesn't make sense to me), I'm pissed. I initially noticed a lump on the top of the right testicle now it disappeared and I don't feel any pain, I'm 19 years old and I feel like I'm wasting the time that was supposed to make me look big in my early 20s, I hate saying that I feel depressed but I haven't felt down like this before. Anyone with varicocele experience, I need your guidance, i don't know if going back to the gym will be a risk or not
You may want to look into low-weight/dumbbell exercises, like the strongman thread >>870.
