brahs i wont be able to lift for a week
will i get weaker?
I read a few times that overtraining doesn't exist because it's just not eating enough.
True or not true and why?
It seems pretty stupid to me not to believe that overtraining exists, when you get certain injuries simply from training too much (fatigue fracture for example), but I like to have me insight.
Overtraining does exist, but it's not something to shy away from. It's good to experience this now and then to understand your body's limits and how to best recover from exercise and stress.
Better than undertraining.
Over training is real but you're very unlikely to reach it unknowingly, and it's more a culmination of things rather than one tough session. If you legitimately did overtrain you could experience excess fatigue, loss of sleep, soreness lasting over 72 hours and some other symptoms. People only say they're scared of over training so they have an excuse to take extra days off, and those people will NEVER over train.
Long story short it's real, it isn't actually that dangerous, and it's...

It's not true, but it might as well be for beginners and intermediate lifters. You should only worry about overtraining if you're an advanced lifter and 3 hour workouts 6 days a week are normal to you.
Just got back from gym.
Feeling subtly high, almost like a small line of oxycontin and a small line of coke at the same time.
Who /gym high/ here?
Pic not related.
>get a pump
>feel solid, thick, tight
>go home happy
>flex in the mirror
Who else /cripplingdismorphia/
Ive taken to avoiding mirrors and windows at night unless im positioned and ready
The only thing I get at the gym is sweaty and disappointing! Guess I'll just learn to love it! Any fellas or gals round' here know what I'm talkin' about? #LearnToLoveNotToHate
Anyone have any experience squatting 6x week and natural?
>John Broz talking about one of his lifters:
His 1RM was 130-35. He got pinned with 140. Within the 11 months he did 210 BS, 185 Fs, snatch 135 C/J 160 cleaned 165.
I am 75kg bw with 120kg 1RM, do you think that I could try this? I also don't understand what weight to do backoff sets at, and when its too much or not enough?
I'd like to know if anyone else has experience with it and recommendations. Also goes for Nuckols' Bulgarian Method pdfs.
he got about 80 kilos on his BS in 11 months, means about 7 kilos per month, about 1,8 kg per week. You dont really need a crazy squat-errday program to achieve this.
Tried squatting every day myself, my hip flexors were inflamed after a while, although strength gains were there.
If your body allows you, to do this, without gradually getting fucked up, no reason not to.
Hello 4chan. Im looking for pics like picrelated, i need those to troll russian manlets. Share with me if you have any, thanks
I will bump with pics i already found in google
I haven't been to the gym and 6 months, i've lost almost 20 pounds, nearly all of it muscle and i'm starting to feel like i'm never going to make it. There is only one thing that can pull me out of this sad cunt mentality, and you /fit/ are the only people that understand what that is. You're the only ones that can help me. So please /fit/, just one more time, provide me with that freshest, most ghetto bangin, jungle coon murder music so that i may chimp out on the weights with righteous monkey fury.

buff grills that could rape you
how much body fat% is this? I don't have a weight scale or tailor ruler to measure myself or such.
Anyone got the fit version of this?
Who here gets drunk before going to the gym? I've been doing it the last few months and I'm still making gains
It's always the same guy making these threads isn't it?
Anyone think its kinda dumb advice for new lifters to be squatting and deadlifting x3 a week? They will be weak as hell and probably inflexiable with shitform. Its literally asking for an injury
>performing compound movements with babyweight
they are weak, inflexible and have shit form. that's why you make them do the same exercises over and over again so they can become less weak, more flexible and gradually improve their form. wtf else are they supposed to do?
Anybody have those pics if vacuum exercises with that long-haired bodybuilder?

Because all these girls are dressed in green and short shorts for St Patrick's day party and I'd be the guy in black pants with either a black shirt or a gray tank top or an old beat up workout shirt with a Spiderman design. The black says creep, the other two day loser, imo.
>tfw too educated to lift
>mfw have a masters in math and bs in physics
>tfw to educated NOT to lift
My posture is bad, fell for the sitting 8 hours a day meme.
What are some good exercises/routines that can help improve it?
