>27 years old
I thought this fucker was 40 years old
not entirely sure if /fit/ is the right board for this, but a pal and I are taking up stick fighting/fencing, but are not sure what to look for in the way of sticks. Is it worth it to spring for something for competition even if we mostly are just doing it for recreation/self-defense or are we fine just sticking with strong wooden broom sticks.
>tfw finally cut enough to hit the beach
Who else /hypedforsummer/ here?
Pretty unfit, 280 5'6-5'8 (i haven't checked height) what would be better to look athletic, more lifts w/ no diet change or diet change/lifestyle with moderate excercise?
Hey! So I read the sticky and I've been doing cardio and counting my calories for like a month but I havnt lost any weight- I actually GAINED weight!
How is this possible? Am I bloating or something from changing my diet?
Especially around my face has become kind of chubby, see? Is it possible that this is some sort of unique genetic reaction? What type of Doctor should I talk to to figure out what's wrong with me? A nutritionist or something?
Here's a pic for reference- you can see how my face looks bloated even though I'm not that fat
When I'm coming out of the hole from a squat it becomes harder for me to keep an upwards torso the more fatigued i am, so my ass ends up moving up faster at first, the angle at my hips becomes more acute, and so my torso leans a bit more forward than usual, until i come out of the hole.
IS THIS NORMAL OR AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG
oh shit it's exactly like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXGsdUyVbEM
you see how his ass moves up much faster? The other squat videos that i find ppl dont seem to be using as much weight as they can so they don't show this pattern, only happens when im fatiguing myself like that
Yes, this is a thing, I've had trouble with it.
Helps a bit to slow down the movement some, with less bouncing at the bottom. I find that if I stop thinking about my back, then my hips allow it to dip a bit too far forward and this happens. It's fixable.
who >aintgonnamakeit here?
>making nice gains in bench, deadlift, and OHP
>can't squat for shit
why /fit/, is it because I go too low? I'm stuck at 115, pls help.
What do you guys think I should work on?
Diddly: 215 (I have really shitty lower back)
I've always hated it that my upperbody lags behind majorly, I'd probably blame it on 12 years wasted on martial arts.
I've only been lifting for 1 1/2 months.
I went from a skinny fuck to what I am currently.
Have you got your qt 3.14 asian gf yet /fit/
Smashed my finger using a hammer. Should I keep lifting after the swelling is down? I font feel pain but rather a decent amount of discomfort. I read it takes 4 months for a new nail to grow but I don't want to wait that long to get back on the gains train. What do?
Bottom side of finger is pretty swollen but not painful at all
In a mechanic and I smashed my nail pretty bad in a car door. Go take a long bath or shower in really hot water to soften the nail. Then, light a candle and take a safety pin and heat the needle until it's glowing red. Then, while its still red, take the needle and quickly set the tip on the affected area of the nail. Just set it there, don't press down with but the slightest force. The goal is to let the needle burn through the nail, not to force it through. With the nail so softened up, it shouldn't take but one or two poke to get it done. It's completely...

How long after was it before you regained total function for that hand. Even though its not painful to curl my finger when I pick something up thats heavy it feels really uncomfortable after a while. I really don't mind it falling off and growing back weird I just don't want to damage it further and increase the time it would take to heal completely.
This might come off as a very silly question or pretentious but I am entirely serious. I have always liked the androgynous look (disclaimer: I am male and heterosexual). However, I also enjoy lifting very much. I like being strong, being active and I have been lifting for half a year now. My body is forming aswell and I do think it looks good the way everything is slowly shaping around, but it is perhaps not the most aesthetic I could be, for my standards.
Pic related is something I consider incredibly aesthetic. I adore the hourglass form going on, which is contrasted...

It's Andrej/a Pejic, a fashion model. Born with a dick but by now it is cut off and goes by the name of Andreja.
>Advice: literally just live an unhealthy lifestyle of coke and alcohol and hope you have a great bonestructure everywhere
derp I obviously don't want to look like a skelly, I just want to emulate the same proportions and the general aesthetics of it
You're not going to be able to emulate the proportions without also being pretty skeletal. Too much of it is reliant on frame size as the base and muscle mass is limited in how it can change that.
> ive lost less than 5 pounds in the last month
> i'm still fat as fatass (5'10 270lbs)
> i've heard "have you lost weight" 40 times in the past week at work
> autist so i reply "huh.. y..yeah i guess"
i don't feel skinnier at all and when i look in the mirror i dont even see a difference how the fuck are these strangers seeing it before i do
Pic related, it's me.
Goal: "in shape".
What should I start with, cardio, lifting?
If you bulk up first, you will get depressed because your gains will be covered in fat.
If you lose weight first, you will be impressed at the change and feel good that you're 'slim'. You can still do weights, but you wouldn't be eating enough to grow bigger.
When you get slim and toned, start planning your bulk.
Carrot on a stick, friend.
So I read the sticky and according to this:
Calories: TDEE - 500 calories
Protein: 1.5+ grams per lb. bodyweight
I should be consuming 331.5 grams of protein?
How does that make any sense or is my math wrong?
Thanks for any reply
