I need to get my cardio gains up. But I have a few issues.
1. I hate running.
2. I like biking, but my city is not very bike friendly, so I can't really get a good pace going.
3. When I run my knees ache and my calf muscles hurt.
I want to get my cardio gains up. I've been working on my form and got a good pair of shoes, but it still feels like shit. Does /fit have any advice?
Also, is running on concrete terrible for you?
yes try to keep running on concrete to a minimum, run on track, trail, or grass if you can. I've heard the treadmill's not so great for your legs either but I use it when it's cold out.
Is there anything wrong if I eat 5 eggs every single day? Been doing this for months and I worry that it might affect my health in some way.

ITT: we discuss all things deadlifts.
Do you guys think deadlifts alone are enough for leg development? It seems that whenever people talk about proper leg development that tends to be exaggerated quads and underdeveloped calves, glutes and hamstrings, from too many squats. Would it be a terribly bad idea to construct a strength program focused mainly on deadlifts with infrequent squats occasionally throw in?
How do i use my chest and not my shoulders when bench pressing?
I have been trying to get a better form when bench pressing but no matter what i try i feel it in my shoulders and not in my chest.
My legs are plased flat on the ground, but on the bench back slightly up, chest up and shoulders back.
But when i push the barbell my shoulders still does all the work.
retract your scapula like you're squeezing a tennis ball on your back with your shoulder blades. Do that all the way thru the ROM. Don't flare your elbows out. Focus on flexing and using your pecs. Warm up with this form in mind then do your heavy sets
Lately I hate going to my gym and the only reason is the other people there. It's affecting my workouts because I leave early because I just can't stand being around these people.
The biggest problem is:
>Perpetual racking of the plates in the wrong spot, by everybody
You have to see it to believe how fucking stupid these people are - racking 45s in front of 25s or 25s in front of 10s, etc. - and it VERY prevalent at my gym.
It just infuriates me so much. Every now and then, I fix the weight racks, then I feel...

I work out at an employee gym at my law enforcement center. Primarily police officers work out here. They are the worst offenders when it comes to not reracking weights, leaving shit all over the gym, and leaving their loaded ezcurl bars from doing lolcurls everywhere. It's like the ego from being a police officer has went to their heads so much that they refuse to stoop as low as showing a little common courtesy.
The more boomers/gen-x'ers go to your gym, the worse it is. The more you pay for your gym, the worse it is. Tried a few gyms while my school gym was closed for winter and the weights were always in the wrong spots. When I was using a piece of equipment, I was circled by people giving nasty looks as I rested instead of just asking how many sets I had left. I'm sorry the squat rack is part of your circuit but maybe this is your fault for not thinking things through or opening your mouth to ask for it. Did...

Arnold claims he used to sleep 6 hours a day. Is it workable or bullshit from roid user?
some of you faggots are literally retarded
Micros matter to anyone who cares about their health
Whole foods matter to anyone who cares about nutrient density
The IIFYM choir is retarded. Yes, most of you are still eating like retards even if the weight is under control. Enjoy your binary approach and the 38294324932432 processed ingredients, additives, preservatives, watchlist ingredients and organ damage that come with them.
>favorite brand; flavor
>what you add
>why are oats so great
do yourself a favor and don't buy meme flavored oats. Kek @ falling for the "IT HAZ BROTEINS! :D" meme. Oats are complex carbs used for energy, their protein content is irrelevant
I just buy the generic cheap ones at my local supermarket. I use a mason's jar to prepare my oats and put it in the fridge over night. Recipe:
- 8 tablespoons of oats
- soy milk or almond milk to cover the oats entirely
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- half a banana
- half a kiwi
- a handful of frozen fruit, such as strawberry, raspberry or blueberry
Not a lot of protein in here, but so gawd damn delicious and keeps you going for hours

How much sleep does a fitizen need?
None in the catalogue
For RDL - I can have the bb touch the ground without rounding my back. Is this okay to do or should I stick with just below my knees? I also don't do anything with my arms, they just hang, is this okay too? I feel it only slightly in my lower back, but mostly in my hamstrings and glutes.
Hey /fit/ how come when i do leg raises i dont get the same "burning" sensation as when i do situps. I was told leg raises was a tougher exercise than situps. I still get tired from leg raises mind you, i just dont get that burning sensation in my abs.
