What % of people do you think actually lift year round for years on end non-stop?
At my gym there's probably 15 or so people that I've seen consistently throughout the entire year for the last 5 years.
I've seen literally hundreds, if not thousands of people come in for a few days, or weeks, or months..then disappear.

My only advice would be is to not be a normal-fag.
Normal-fags end up with many responsibilities and hobbies in life and therefore mostly end up quitting eventually.
I played WoW for 10 years non-stop and only stopped because Blizzard ruined the game, I'd still be playing if it wasn't ruined by OTHER people, I've been lifting for 5 years now non-stop, good thing nobody can ruin this for me :D
I've been doing SS for 4 weeks now and already Ive stalled on an excercise.
Heres my bench
40kg 5, 5, 5
45kg 5, 5, 5
47.5 kg 5, 5, 5
50 kg 5, 5, 5
52.5 kg 5, 5, 5
55 kg 5, 4, 5
today I did 57.5kg and couldnt even do 3 reps on my first set.
Im going on holiday for the next week so the next time ill be benching is 18th July. while on holiday Ill have no access to gym equipment and so I was wondering what I should do?

>should I deload when I get back from holiday or just try 57.5kg again?
Do 50kg when you're back.
Usually its because people aren't eating enough to progress. Rip says once you stall three times you lower the weight and try again.
I'd recommend adding in some accessory lifts about now too. Triceps, dips, that sort of stuff
bro it took me about 4 months to build up to 50 alone, plateauing at 57 on 4 weeks is good dude, that really is. Try warming up with 30kg for 8 maybe and then you will be able to hit 60kg easily for 5.
Unfortunately I got muscle implants when I was super skinny and insecure 4 years ago. Lately I started lifting and they're starting to look off balance and pretty ugly.
I want to be an elite powerlifter. I want to do it without drugs and without gear.
I want to be able to have an elite total in the 242 class without drugs.
Is that possible? My biggest powerlifting idol is Mike Tuchscherer. He has over a 2000 raw total. I like to tell myself he is all natural because i like him and want him to be. I want to be strong like him.
Right now my total is 1350 at 227 pounds. I plan on getting to 240 by the end of the year with a 1450 total.
Its possible. Not everyone will make it, but its certainly possible to total elite without drugs (you aren't going to be matching a geared elite total with raw numbers, but they're different classifications anyway).
Where my homies at?
How are we all on this fine Wednesday evening?
Any north Brissy lifters on here?
Gf has family here, I'm a huge martial arts fag and I'm doing a teaching degree so getting experience while I finish it seemed a good idea. Basically it all fit together well.
It's great, found a gym which costs roughly $2/visit.
How do I stay strong but also reduce fat on my body?
I have always just eaten what I want, and up until recently I have had very little fat on my body. I have started to get a little bit of fat around my stomach, but I don't want to reduce my calorie intake because I believe that reduces strength/muscle mass.
At 5'9 and 220 lbs, will I get loose skin if I drop to about 160? Is there any way to avoid it? Will it eventually tighten up with age? I'm 18 if it helps
Are there any doctors or nurses on /fit/? I keep having to shit every hour or so, and my anus hurts a lot (its fucking red) and when I wipe theres a little bit of blood. Im kinda scared but mostly annoyed because I think Ive gone to the bathroom at least 20 times in the last 24 hours, and it seems it wont stop anytime soon. My shit was gooey/watery as fuck first but thankfully its better now (probably because I ate more fiber) Also everytime I shit, its like its being blocked or something at the very end of my shitting session. WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO? WHAT IS THIS? REEE
You've probably got haemorhoids. If the blood is bright red then its new and from lower down in the intestines. If its dark red or blackish then you have internal bleeding and shouldn't be fucking around asking fit for advice, you should be at the hospital. My bet is that you have internal haemorhoids. Go to your GP and tell them your symptoms

>Already feel like shit
Those will be some fun months.
Fucking kill me
Just finished making my mid morning snack.
Want any, /fit/?
Should I do 3xF Negative Chin Ups or 4~5x8 to progress into regulars? Which is more efficient? My ultimate goal is 3x8 weighted. Last time I was able to get 8-8-5-5 slow reps with good form. I workout fullbody 3 times a week, and on one day I do one handed dumbbell rows and on the other day chin ups.
Do them explosively
You can aso start the chin up with a little jump to propel yourself upwards. This way you aren't only doing the noegative but also the concentric movement.
Do some banded ones and do them explosively. Just do maybe 1 or 2 reps but you gotta put every ounce of effort into the reps.

SHAME ME, /FIT/.
I used to be fat. I'm not going back there. Not again. Never again.
Inbound for a half-marathon tonight to atone for my sins.
>there is literally someone on /fit/ right now who is doing a half marathon of cardio after eating 6k calories
>mfw im about to goto sleep on 2,300 calories and I am like 10% bodyfat and comfy as fuck
btw that half marathon isn't going to do shit.
it wont burn the calories you ate AND it will make you even more hungry tomorrow.
>right what /fit/ think womens want
How do I improve my posture and get a j shaped spine /fit/?
Always be concious of your posture. Whenever you realise you've adopted a poor posture, correct it. After a while you stop having to think about it and adopt a good posture by default. For me this took about three weeks.
