I have ridiculously tight hamstrings. I've tried stretching, foam rolling, having my GF step on them, and they're still stupidly tight. I've injured both knees, and I'm pretty sure it's because my hamstrings were fucking up my mobility.
How can I improve hamstring mobility/hip hinge?
What can I do to get rid of my bubble butt? It's embarrassing.
Is it possible to train for strength and hypertrophy at the same time, or am I just wasting energy?
This guy walks into the gym and slaps your girlfriends ass. What do you do?

Unintentionally cutting weight right now. Too bad this can't be 2 weeks from now.
What are the benefits of doing strength using only your own body weight?
I'm asking because my sport focuses a lot on exercises that purely use one's body weight and gravity.
Some of it is great for actual athletes, a lot of it can end up being far more effort than the results justify (particularly the more complicated advanced movements - 'true' oly lifts can have similar problems with athletic training as well). There's a reason so many sports tend towards using simple movements for GPP and save the complicated stuff for the actual sport-specific training.
So, /fit/ what do you guys think of Nature's Own 100% whole wheat bread? I've been without bread for a long time and it sucks because it's my favorite food. Is it /fit/ approved?
How do you guys here who are complete losers (like having no friends, no girlfriend, bad parental relationship, virgin, shut-in, etc) find the motivation to work out? This is the predicament I'm in.
24 year old skeletor, friendless permavirgin shut-in and I just can't find the motivation to start working out when i basically have no external happiness in my life.
the trick is to just start, after that you enjoy it because you don't feel like a worthless piece of shit
4 weeks to notice a difference in yourself, 4 months before people start to notice changes in you, 2 years before people start behaving differently around you
Clinical depression is real, bro.
You might need a therapist instead of a gym.
Cutting out carbs helped me with my suicidal depression. Particularly legumes. Also getting enough sunshine. Might not work for you, though.
Also, motivation is kind of lame. Learn discipline by doing a little bit every day. Start with one push up on your knees and one sit up. Gradually do more.
working out is all i have
it keeps me sane
when i have 300lbs loaded up on the bench and its coming down to my chest, i can't think about anything else but that moment. it's completely tranquil and serene to the point of being therapeutic. I've conflated pain with therapy.
Doing 100% calorie deficit and getting all my protein and vitamin needs from meal replacements. Don't feel hungry and have been able to work out just fine. Has anyone else tried something similar? Just trying to get rid of my belly in time for an audition next month.
I lost 80 lbs doing this with one tip from my doctor. You should have one tiny super small meal every day to keep everything functioning. It can bee a small salad or bowl of rice. I did 4 slim fast's a day and a small salad at night and lost 80 in 9 weeks. Went from 350 to 270. At that point the doc changed me up. But yea. thats my 2 cents.
I have 12 ounces of frozen salmon here i want to eat, but im really confused about calorie count.
one site says its 708
another site says its 420
and some math with the label says its 350
who do i trust?
Just trust the label. If it's pre seasoned with something or has any additional ingredients or whatever then only the label has the right answer. If it's just raw salmon then idk but 708 seems obnoxiously high.

Is he natty?
I have this thing where I can't start lifting because I don't know what routine to do. I just wanna be a lot bigger and leaner. I don't wanna look dyel anymore.
Half of /fit/ just says read the sticky, and the sticky says SS. The other half of /fit/ says SS is a mean and won't help you look good. I don't know what to do /fit/ I just wanna start lifting and Make it. Should I just do a 6 day ppl
Do SS. This place is a fucking cesspool. The sticky has good info.
Consistently working out your entire body several times a week and eating enough is more important than a particular program, though.
The "SS is a meme" phrase in itself is a meme. Do SS plus accessories for like 5-6 months and you'll be fine lad.
Literally as long as you are picking up barbells and putting them down, you'll make progress as a beginner. SS is just a program to help you make quicker strength ga isn't than something like a shitty brosplit
