How are you holding up?
A bit over two weeks here, didn't have cravings for the first ten days but now I'm going nuts, is it because I don't have anything else to do right now and just sit at home all day?
I probably need to distract myself, hope I won't relapse.
Nicotine should only be active in the body for about 72 hours.
Disassociate yourself the hobbies you had while smoking.
I would chew and read the morning paper so I started lifting in the am.
Is building entire body on sprinting alone real or just a meme?
Sprinting alone? Definitely not. You'll burn fat with a good diet and cardio, but you need to build muscle through muscle exercises. Your leg muscles will become prominent but that's it. The big reason abs are associated with runners is because they burn enough fat for those muscles to be clearly visible.
Things /fit/ will never see.
Lol, I think Blaha actually won this round.
Dude I don't really know this Jason Blaha guy, but have seen a couple of his vids.
He can lift heavy-ass weights like it's nothing but a peanut but he doesn't seem to wanna be a bodybuilder....at all.
He looks like shit.
He does his fucking bicep pose and it's like. Ain't no biceps there buddy.
Is he at all competitive in strength events? Because that's the only excuse for looking so shit.
>that guy who's not even an employee that runs around wiping down the machines as soon as people get off them
Guy claims to be real life Bruce Wayne. Thoughts?
Just got hit in the feel fitizens. Read along.
> I’ve spent the past year losing 80 lbs and getting in shape. A lot of people have been asking me how I did it; specifics like what diet I was on, how many times a week I worked out, etc etc. So I thought I’d just answer everyone’s questions by giving you guys step by step instructions on how you can achieve everything I have… IN JUST 4 EASY STEPS! Ready? Here we go!!!
1.) NO BEER

> After work one night, go up up up all the way to the top floor of the parking garage and walk all the way to the back. Look out at the twinkling lights of the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles and think about how every single one of those office lights represents a person. Try to imagine how they feel. What they’re doing right then; if they miss someone special, if they wonder if someone special misses them. Then realize that most of those lights are probably shining into offices with no one in them except for a custodian or two. Realize you are alone, that you are staring at no one. Turn your collar up against the cold and drive home to a meal of a single chicken breast and steamed vegetables. Go to sleep. Go back to work. Go to the gym. Sweat.
Buy a scale. Pick a goal weight. Imagine the goal weight as a shining beacon on a hill. You are at the bottom, in the dark. Talk to her at work. Notice the awkward way she walks in high heels and her goofy smile when she looks over at you. Feel something clench inside your chest. Think about the gym and what muscle groups you are going to work that night.
> Get on the treadmill. Push yourself to level 3, then level 4. Then 6. Run so fast you feel like you are going to die. Hit level 10. Pray for death. Think of how bad she makes you feel. Find the strength to keep going.
> Late one night, make the mistake of looking at her Facebook and Instagram posts. Feel lower than you ever thought possible. Unfriend her and try to forget what you’ve seen. She is doing things with other people that you asked her to do with you. She is having a great time without you, and you are wasting your life listening to Taylor Swift on repeat and making sweat puddles on a gym floor.
> Watch as your life shrinks down to four things: 1.) work, 2.) the gym, 3.) the food you eat, 4.) sleep. She wears the necklace you bought her and tells you that she got it “from someone who’s really special”. That night you discover that Slayer’s “Angel of Death” might be the perfect song to do squats to.
> Start to make friends at the gym. Vince and you spot each other on Wednesdays; Chase and you spot each other on Fridays. You used to look down on bro nods and fist bumps - but since that’s how gym rats communicate, that’s become the language you speak most often. Work, Gym, Food, Sleep. Over and over. More sweat puddles. More fist bumps. You run hundreds of miles and lift thousands of pounds.
You start to see new people working out here and there and you realize you have done something you once thought impossible: You have become one of the regulars. Once in a while, you are the last one leaving the gym. You make a point to get to the gym earlier, but your workouts start to stretch from one hour to ninety minutes to two hours. You are now routinely the last person at the gym. You run. You lift. You make more puddles.
> Your body changes slowly, then all at once - you are suddenly thin and muscular. You hit your goal weight, pick a new one, then hit it again. You go out and buy new clothes. You receive wave after wave of compliments. Your ex tells you that she’s seeing someone else. Your chest clenches. You feel exhausted.
>That night you go to the gym. You listen to all her favorite songs. You run farther and lift more than you thought your body was capable of. It is a good workout. It leaves you numb. You go home and eat a single chicken breast and steamed vegetables. You go to sleep. You dream of a bottomless black puddle.
You’ve stopped drinking alcohol months ago, so now when you hang out at bars or parties you don’t talk to anyone new. But with your new body and new clothes, gorgeous women hit on you constantly. One time, a woman literally comes up to you and says she thinks you’d be good in bed and hands you a napkin with her number on it. As she is talking to you, her hand resting on your chest inside your shirt, all you can think of is how badly you need to beat your best time sprinting across the park across from your house the next day. That night...

Okay /fit/, if each muscle group needs a 48 hr recovery period, is there anything theoretically wrong with an ABABABA routine? I want to lift every day because it makes me feel happy and healthy and is helping my depression a lot. I know I'm probably being an idiot, so pls help
Pic related, what I don't want to happen
Muscles don't take 48 hours to recover, sometimes it takes more time sometimes it takes less. If you aren't going balls to the wall and are leaving a lot left in the tank then this is fine to do as long as you're eating enough and sleeping enough.
Hate to break it to yall
The only way to get big natty calves is to be obese as a kid or have superior genetics
also don't ask me why but soccer players get big calves
Is this guy one of /fit/?
How did he do this transformation and get that QT?
Got any other success pics to inspire?
Daily reminder not to skip neck day
I don't think that's aesthetic, it might be a little too much. I wonder what the most aesthetic neck size is in comparisons to shoulder and head size? I think pic related could probably have a bigger neck.
But srsly. what are some workouts that target the neck. Other than sucking cock.
Hey fit, check out my 10/10 qt. This is why I lift brahs
