How has your social life been affected by lifting?
People treat me better in general. More kind, more respectful, more playful, more smiling, everything.
Then again, I used to be the weird nerdy kid with shit hair, backne that made a girl scream and shy away once, no real popular friends and too much of a martial arts obsession and good grades.
What does /fit/ think about drug use?
Where on the graph would you draw the line?
/plg/- Powerlifting general: We lift heavy, eat heavy, and feel heaviest of all.

If I wanted to prove that Calories In / Calories Out was bullshit and that fat gain / loss was hormonal, what would I have to do it prove it to you?
I'm thinking about doing a week long bulk, I would video tape myself preparing, weighing, and eating every meal. My daily caloric intake would have to be high enough that I couldn't possibly burn it off through exercise. I believe you guys would be in so much denial about the results that I would even have to video tape myself after eating to prove I am not throwing up my meals. I would eat LCHF for the duration...

Build a perpetual motion engine and solve the world's energy problems while making a fuckton of money and overturning thermodynamics. Good luck.
oh the thermodynamics meme
all the first law says is that if something gets more or less massive, then more energy or less energy has to enter it than leave it. it says nothing about why this happens. It says nothing about cause and effect.
now parrot something else or answer my question.
A trainer in my gym recently proudly posted a video if his 100kg "clean" deadlift record
Will fasting destroy my gains?
As far as I understand, it doesn't matter, as long as i eat enough proteins/calories during night, but I am a bit worried about how not drinking water during daylight will affect me.
No matter how much people say its fine, i feel like the deadlift feels, and looks like the most dangerous exercise there is. It feels unatural as fuck, it feels damaging to the lower back even with perfect form (and i'm only lifting 180kg 3x5 nothing near pick realted)
And before i get the "your form must be shit" its not, i've had a few different people say its spot on, so whats the deal ?
Anyone else feel the same way ?
Might drop them completely
>tfw dorian yates never did them at all
i only ever do them off blocks. i've had bad back injuries before, and it's just not worth it. you can be out for like 6 months with a low back injury. been there, dont want to go there agina.

Pic is me, any advice? Please help me make it!
5'11, 165lbs. Been lifting for 13 months. All my lifts are approaching intermediate levels (185 bench, 235 squat, 275 DL), but I still look like I don't lift. How do I look like I lift, /fit/?
End new rules
Any of you guys read this? Is it worth picking up?
How could someone read the same opinion piece so many times over? You can describe the entirety of the movement in a single paragraph, I can't imagine how anybody could write an entire magazine about that shit.
What's /Fit/'s take on body hair?
does it make you look better or worse depending on how big you are or should you be completely shaven?
Depends on how it grows in. I think the patchy, middle-of-the-chest chestpubes look is terrible and I would shave it immediately. But a nice even distribution of hair over the pecs or even stomach is fine. Back and shoulder hair is disgusting as hell and should always be shaved.
Having said this I'm 23 and just barely starting to grow some peach fuzz on my pecs and have a little trail of hair on my stomach. I don't think I'm destined for good body hair, but we'll see.
>hairy as fuck lower body
>hairless upper body except for armpits, shitty facial hair as well
Is working out with your gf/wife as perfect as it seems?
get in here /fit/ bros with your dream body. Mines Lesnar and ever since they cured his disease he's gotten even more shredded excited for him at ufc 200
>curls? Heh, of course not. Weighted chins (you may call them chin-ups) and squats (which are a full body exercise) are all I need to build strong biceps. I do not concern myself with bicep size in any case. Function over form is the ticket.
