Wasn't it really expensive for you guys who got fit when you had to get an entirely new wardrobe for your new body?
new shirts, new jeans, new pants, maybe even something expensive like a new suit or whatever?
>like a new suit
>implying mental retards on /fit/ are able to do a job or attend meetings that involve wearing a suit
>Maybe yours is scientifically proven to work.
>Maybe it's autistic as fuck.
>But you keep doing it.
What is it?
I get on a cardio machine and raise my heart rate over 180 then back down under 150 three times before I start lifting weights.
I get a beej from my wife.

>endorphins dull pain
>mental confidence boost

What do yall have to say about yoga?
I stopped lifting after last semester ended since not paying tuition doesn't let me in the gym. Since then I've been running and doing some bodyweight but it's nowhere near the same. I have been getting back into yoga though, and it feels awesome although my core is weak as fuh cuh.
Anyone have experience with using it to "set your body straight" so that lifting is easier? I find squatting feels a million times more natural if I'm regularly doing some yoga on the side.
As a DYEL I found that if I just did SS or 5x5 eventually I'd start running up against strain in connective tissue or stabilizer muscles as is typical when always progressively loading benches at 5RMs or whatever. I found that doing light accessory work of any kind, including yoga helped.
At least from a comfort and injury prevention angle. From a performance angle, don't listen to me, listen to someone who knows what the fuck they're doing.
Why do I sometimes have muscular spasms in my Gastrocnemius muscle while I sleep? No matter if I do sport or not, I wake up in pain during some random nights.
Thoughts on Fousey??
What keeps you going to the gym? Been liftan 4 years now without any breaks. Someday's I look in the mirror and fail to recognize the person that stares back. 4 years ago I was 27kg overweight. Took a week off and ate cheesecakes and now gym doesn't seem like to attract me anymore. Am I finished?
>rest day turned into rest week
>GO NOW! QUIIICK GET TO THE BEEEEEENCH
>work out for two years regularly
>depression comes back worse than ever
>can't work out for more than two sets without becoming really apathetic and tired
What can I do?
I've been there... what worked for me was mindfulness meditation and changing up my workouts to something else, preferably outdoors. I know it's not that simple though... It's something you'll mostly have to figure out on your own. I still experience short episodes (2-3 days) of depression, but they're less frequent. Good luck, anon
Whats better for losing weight
dieting or doing cardio?
Im /cutting/ rn and if u do cardio on an empty-ish stomach would u burn off muscle?
So this is the power of /fit/ ...
Really makes you think ...
Anyone hear what /pol/ did to him?
Kid got JUSTed hardcore
Bodyweight fags keep saying stuff about how bodyweight has great carryover to lifting, but how about lifting to bodyweight carryover? E.g. will doing bench press make me gud at advanced pushups, do deadlifts improve my pullup, or will getting a good OHP help with handstand practice? Etc.
I've been playing around with calisthenics for the last few years, training for strength and general fitness. From skinnyfat and not being able to do a single pushup, I can now do intermediate stuff like archer pullups, perfect one-arm pushups, pistol squats with a 15lb dumbbell,...

High test skeletor here.
I can already do over 15 reps from most calisthenics exercises including dips and can't do one of the harder calisthenics like one arm stuff (although I did a one armed chinup today).
Fuck your "carry over," some people are just wasting their time with calisthenics.
Requesting calisthenics graphics anyway please.
Why do men think that having semi muscular arms gives them permission to be fat pieces of shit? Your muscular arms don't mean shit if your fucking belly is fat. What gets me is that these types of guys always consider themselves attractive because they aren't skinny. No, skinny is much preferable to this shit.
The excuse I always hear is "well it's hard to get to the gym these days muh time". Ummm, then put down the fork? It's not a matter of you not working out, it's a matter of you overeating like a disgusting farm animal. Just stop fucking...

Its due to society wearing shirts all the time. Mainly t-shirts. You only need to appear big and strong. So as long as you have big shoulders and big bi's and tri's and slight size to your chest, you're pretty much golden. Abs are generally for your own personal reasons or homosexuality. Thats basically it.
Women want to feel secure protection, and strength.
Men want aesthetics that are symmetrical and proportionate.
