ITT: your forearms
Can you guys help me convince my girlfriend that she needs to workout her legs, not just do cardio/yoga?
Pic related her.
What would /fit/ consider a good overhead press?
first off, "good" does not have any qualifiers, "good for lifting three months" or "good given that i weigh 59kg at 180cm" are meaningless statements
a good OHP starts at 80-100kg depending on your bodyweight
>sign up for the gym after years of running on the street
>almost every male goes to the weight room yet is either fat or no muscle
>one bro with pretty big arms makes it into the cardio area, gets on the treadmill and only runs on it for 5 minutes before turning the speed down to a walk
>everyone else walking on the treadmill
What went wrong? You want to be fit you better be able to run for an hour straight on the street or on a treadmill,...

Well fit, this is me, over the past few years I've gone through a bit of weight loss. It's still a work in progress, but I'm down about 60 pounds. Unfortunately I've developed some loose skin around my chest... I was hoping for advice or if you guys though i might need surgery. I do pushups every morning to try and tighten it up, and i work out constantly along with cardio. Do you think they will just go away over time or no? Currently im about 6 feet tall, and weigh in at about 205.
That's what I was thinking, I just got a little hopeful because i saw stretch marks underneath, and i noticed they seemed smaller than a couple months ago. I can't tell if it was because I was developing more of a chest though that pulled up some of the loose skin, or if the skin was tightening on its own.
Anyone else started groping their ass like they grope a womans ass?
Anyone else realized that tbqh you have a rounder ass that most chicks?

My gym got a pair of 10lb bumper plates and a light bar thats gotta only weigh like 25lbs
u guys font even know i jerked off and come onnthe plates to claim them as my own
clean and jerk formcheck !
i'm sorry that i have to post so many formchecks but the movement is starting to feel better and better every day and i need opinions.
I'm looking for a starting program, and the sticky recommends SS or 5x5, but everyone on the board seems to think they're both memes. I don't want to put in 210 days like that Asian DYEL just to find out I was wasting my time. What should I actually use as a starting regimen?
just use a moderate rep range, moderate volume, start light, use mostly compound movements, fullbody training 2-3x a week, progressive overload
Chest Press 2-3x10-12
Shoulder Press 1-2x10-12
Calf Press 2-3x10-12
2 mins rest between sets, add weight when you get to the top of the rep range
takes an hour
ss is a good choice, especially if you want to go into powerlifting
I've already read through the program, and it seemed completely legit to me until I saw people on fit bashing it as a joke. Still confused as to whether or not you're memeing.
>that guy who wears basketball shorts to the gym
Hey, is our performances to pull ups must equal our performances to dips to have a balanced body?
What's the point in lifting if you don't have the V taper?
whats with all the
>you fell for the SS meme
>Falling for the SS meme lel
It's confusing the fuck otta me lads
SS is a troll is a troll
keep up the squats&oatz
I made an ama a couple of days ago, and i liked the response, som im making a new one.
Basicly. Im a med student working at a sportstraumatology department. I arrange joint-examination courses for med students, im the head of the students sportsmedicine union and ive just done a shitton of stuff about joints.
Throw out some questions for me! It can be about anything. If i dont know the answer, ill ask one of the surgeons
Id like to remain anonymous. Im from europe though.
Sportstraumatologists in my country are basicly orthopedic surgeons who prefer dealing with sports-related injuries. The orthopedic surgeons sometimes take a diploma in sportsmedicine.
My right knee seems instable as fuck when the leg is extended, its totally fine when bend, can do heavy squats and everything but really habe to focus on not extending my leg completely
Orthopedic doctor made an xray and bone was fine, something was off about the kneecap but nothin major, hes not sure what may cause the instability, maybe something ripped but not sure yet
He told me meniscus is fine and that i have to wear one of those kneebands which hold the kneecap in place when doing sports, can train legs without problems wearing this, even 400+lbs squats
NOW MY QUESTION
i wanna run today and do some sprints, should i wait fir my next orthopedic checkup (4 weeks) or should i go for it? Dont want to lose my kneegains
Also, what could it be?
