Am I gonna make it /fit/ ?
My shitty genes suggest otherwise ;_; pic related, 6 months ago and current.
Also, progression thread.
So, at what point did you realise you were actually making it? Some event that kickstarted the "holy shit it's working" mindset?
For me, it was randomly touching my chest and realising I suddenly had pecs. Some hard muscle I could actually flex and move, and not just some flabby motionless layer between fat and ribs. I just couldn't stop touching them while flexing during the whole afternoon.
Share your feel-good stories, /fit/!
When doing pic related touched my head with my biceps.
What do you guys do when your burning insecurity and self hate isn't enough motivation to repetitively lift metal objects anymore?
just cancel your membership man, if you have to ask these kind of questions over something that is completely optional in life than the best thing is to just quit.
lifting isn't for you
Remember /fit/ these are the standards you're trying to beat
Why is this a thing?
I need fucking help..
I've been going to the gym for a little over 7 months now and I am making absolutely no progress. My first week there i had someone teach me a routine where you Squat, Deadlift, Bench. He said "Continue doing this and you'll see a big difference within 3 months". I did this shit for 3 months and i haven't seen any single difference, I've tried adding weight on and what not but i don't gain anything out of it.
For the past 4 months I've been experimenting with routines that I find online and little difference...

I bought a foam roller. Now what?
>tfw Rich Piana will die in your lifetime?
why even live brehs?
Which is the harder starting point to "make it" from, 115 lbs auschwitz mode or 280 lbs walrus mode? Both at a height of 6' even.
probably at least 5x harder for the fatty.
Much harder to not eat when you're hungry than to eat when you aren't hungry. Don't care what a fucking skeleton says, this is coming from someone who started skinny. Also as a fatty your skin is likely fucked and you may have joint issues. Plus they have to spend years losing the fat and will likely never get ripped due to the obesity-induced adipocyte proliferation and leptin/insulin resistance.

ITT: Post dinner.
Right lads, it's time for a forearms thread. Post yours, rate others.
anyone else feel like a douchebag wearing clothes that show off gains? I can't figure out why it bothers me.
>tfw every shirt is 1 size too small on shoulders and 1 size too big on waist
Fuck no. Part of the reward for "making it" is you get to proudly show off your gains. I don't go out of my way to buy extra tight fitting clothing, but I give zero fucks if I am wearing a shirt that I know is too tight because fuck it, I'm not trying to hide a gut.
As a skinny guy, can I winter bulk on double cheese?

At the minute and for the past 3 years i've been purely focused on strength nothing else. I've become quite big and strong, but starting new years i want to switch my training up and become a good all rounder in all aspects of fitness and training.
Any recommendations /fit/?
When did you realize that deadlifts and squats are not only useless, but also counter-productive if your goals are long-term health and attractive aesthetics?
Interesting statement. I'd like to see you defend it before i bother replying in more detail.
How specifically are squats/deadlifts counter-productive towards long term health/aesthetics?
