Are you ready, /fit/?

I dodged NYRs last year by being away for 2 weeks after Christmas, so they'd all given up by the time I was back in, and I'm terrified about what I'm going to see.
I'm in a fairly small college gym chain that seems to have been trying to branch out significantly the last few months; how bad do you think it's going to be?
Have you noticed this trend of 6/10 women (genuine 6/10 early 20s women) having 6'2" to 6'4" boyfriends who you'd suspect as being chads at first glance?
hey guys im 5"11 and weight 123kg is it too late for me to become /fit/ also post your success stories
Just a reminder that normie standards of jacked are incredibly low
I have a friend who permabulked and looks like pic related but fatter with bigger pecs
He literally is shirtless all day, talking about a 5000kcal diet, parades around college and literally EVERYONE mires him. He has a 290lb squat at least three inches above parallel, but that doesn't matter
It's true. I'm considered the "built" one in my group of friends but if I posted my body on this board I would (rightfully) be called dyel and laughed out of the thread in seconds
"Star attraction, movie premieres, sports events, red carpets and gala openings: the eternal war between depth and appearances. But there is no war at all between them, since the purpose of depth is to create a stronger, and thus more beautiful, appearance; to transform itself into appearance. Those who scorn appearances and evangelize depth are precisely those who are incapable of much, if any, depth: the pseudo-intellectuals, which is why it is by no means an accident that all of them are ugly."
What kinda jobs work what kinda muscles best?
Forearms - Handyman
Lower back - Farmer, Furniture mover
Legs - Bike courier
What about abs, chest, etc?
Which /fit/ meme do you think has caused the most harm towards newbies?
Do a split
Dont do curls
Dont do full body
Dont do cardio
>not exclusive to these
That cardio kills gains
If we are talking about actual harm, that alone has probably set people's health back miles
And pretty much anything to do with insecurity (manlets etc) is pretty harmful to a noobs psyche
Seeing as pretty much 75% of threads here are about shitty fitness memes, yes
Is it possible to drop 40 lbs in 1 month?
The benefits. List 'em.
been on both for the last 8 days
Only difference is me not being as tired during the day and my standards of girls has dropped to reasonable levels I guess.
I get instant boners from pic related now tho so thats a plus.
Can i make it with such wide hips? Cut or bulk? Should I get tested for Klinefelters?
What are some top tier creative hobbies?
I need a creative outlet. Tried teaching myself to draw but it was very frustrating.
me and my friend started training together years ago
he stopped i kept going
he comes in the gym the other day and says i look good
asked to see my chest i showed him
he touched the top of my chest
then asked how my legs were so i showed him my quads and he touched the inside of my tear drop and said my legs were huge
i dont think hes gay
was tht no homo?
Does anyone here do martial arts?
I am considering starting with BJJ for self-defence purposes, is it any fun and useful?
I do takewondo. Good cardio, probs meh for self defense. Fun sport if you are interested in competing at all though.
I did judo last summer and am looking to start again next semester. Also very fun. Basically all sparring/sport based, so maybe better for self defense but lots of people are in it to compete, not to really learn to fight irl. BJJ might be different because it has more overlap with MMA stuff to my understanding.
