Can someone just NOT have noob gains?
I mean, I started lifting almost 5 months ago (SL-SS), and while I saw some aesthetic gain, my progress has been so fucking slow.
It wasnt my first time lifting, some years ago I some dumb program by a pt in my gym and kept at it for a few months, but I didnt put in much effort
I was under the impression the first 6 months were the period where a novice lifter can have the MOST and quickest progress, but that hasn't been the case for me
Except for the beginning, I was NEVER able to increase weight on a lift twice...

You still aren't lifting right. My first six months my form was fucking garbage and i was ego lifting baby weight.
You have to put in hard work to get anything out. Deload, get your form in check and then do a linear progression where you overload
But either you are going to enjoy the journey or give up. If you aren't ready to lift for years and sweat and hurt then give up now and stay the fuck out of my gym
probably the form thing
I know that I couldnt regularly add weight either until I figured out the form thing
its really hard when youre lifting alone and have noone to look at your form
I had my mom film me squatting once how embarrassing
Why does /fit/ have such autism over compound cable machines? They are fucking GOAT for building joocy mass.
Seriously quit with the SS autism and muh functional strength. Machines are great for aesthetics.
Eh. Once you get to heavy enough weight on the dumbbells and shit, machines are gay. I only do one exercise in my whole PPL routine that uses cables/machines and that's the triceps push down thingy.
I'm especially counting on my amerifat brehs for this one: How do I make burger patties like those that McDs make? As far as I know it's 100% beef, with just salt and pepper. But mine always turn out much more different regarding both taste and texture.
Also general burger making tips, recipes, etc.

What do you guys think of the buff dudes
The only thing more poorly put together than their videos are their shills.
Guys, I think I found the real way to diet and be fit. So when you eat, you get more calories and then you use some and poo some out. So what if you eat your poo? Think about it, if you eat your poo, you can be be full, or at least somewhat full, without eating any new calories. Like, dogs and some other mammals can do it (cats and bears can too, right?), so we should be fine to eat some. That's probably an evolutIonary advantage. And if we for some reason can't eat your poo, then it sucks because that means even dogs can beat us on dieting.
>post ufw you realised that no matter how shredded you be, or how many plates you lift, your only true friends will be depression and loneliness
Going to bed soon, really really really hoping I don't wake up tomorrow. I'm dying inside or maybe already dead, lifting helps but im losing motivation for that too especially after massive gains its just never good enough.
Anyone here sleep on the floor?
Thoughts? Is it good for you or just another meme?
Also /sleep/ general as well
I've been sleeping on the floor since I was 17, so 4 years
It started as me following the japanese anime meme, but ever since then I really can't go back to a bed, the consistency is too nice
plus the extra space is great as well
It's supposed to be good for your posture and back, but I never really had those issues so I can't say if it actually helps.
I fear sitting on my death bed and regretting my entire life
How much do I need to ohp to get someone like pic related?
anyone else making diner?
Been switching between SL 5x5 and Reg Park's beginner 5x5 for 4 months.
Haven't done almost any push ups. Quit stronglifting, start hypertrophy training, suddenly look ripped and huge.
Powerlifting is a meme, fuck you fit.
I doesn't actually matter (OP here). If you want to build strenght go for less exercises with 3 set of 3-5 reps, increase load. On rest day work on your posture, stretching, mobility, light resistance band training.
Don't ego lift.
But once you reach your strenght goal, go for fucking hypertrophy it's amazing.
>*scan gym card*
>"have a good workout!"
>gym receptionist looks at me and smiles
>immediately look away
I started working at the front desk of my gym and i thought that this was just a meme but it actually happens very often. Dont think about too much, we dont really care and we would be lying if we said we havent done it either. Besides, most of us work out during our breaks or after our shifts so it's all good senpai
I want to do GOMAD but I hate milk, can I do it with chocolate milk instead? I call it GOCMAD.
I'm not going to ask the questions most summerfags probably ask like "How many years do I have to train to look this swole?"
Instead, I want a more precise answer--how many workouts do I have to do at what level of intensity to look anything like this literal demigod? Is this the 10,000 hour rule in effect? Or is it all just photoshop since very few people can look this huge in real life?
I was lifting with my sis, also a /fit/izen and failed my 7th rep during dumbbell press. I drop the weights and one fucking dumbbell bounces like a mad man away from me, right onto her phone. Fucking hell, I'm never taking my own phone in the gym ever again. The phone was placed at what seemed as a very safe distance, 1.5m away from the bench to the right. Thank talos that she had pic related, it's not super expensive.
So, do you still take your phone into the gym? And did you ever damage someone's phone or got your phone damaged?
