@Deleted User clearly, gatorade will fuel the fascist resurgence in modern politics
had me one today while training on the bag 👌
Nords are so innocent and childish. We need to protect these people
This one is better. This dude autistic af
is that a bed next to his floor blanket
Yeah, Idk what's up with that. He's autistic, dude
Boys. I did three one leg squats in a row on my right leg yesterday, and I did a 15 second L-sit today
So you admit you're strengthening the left
Haha solid edit
That's awesome though man, congrats!
Am physically incapable of one legged squats
I just tried doing one
Yep, that's hard
Not so much from a strength standpoint, but keeping balance
Flexibility is key for them as well
I have horrible flexibility so that might be it
When I was in community college, I took a PE class and we used a machine to test our flexibility and I couldn't even reach the machine
Flexibility is the number one factor in being able to move around as we age
If you dont want to be a crippled old man, I'd start stretching regularly
one hour stretching session per week in addition to all of your pre-stretch workouts. I will say that when I grapple and spar with new guys who are powerful and muscular, I submit them much faster on average than I submit new guys who aren't. Their muscles, tendons, and ligaments are generally much tighter and they often have to tap to avoid injury before I even apply a submission. Again I ask, what's the point of being strong and powerful if it doesn't help you in a fight?
I don't think my flexibility is the problem, just the biomechanics
that make a pistol squat nearly impossible for me
I'm plenty limber as it is
@Deleted User The appearance of power can often sway the actions of others in your favor.
Better to have both the appearance and the substance imo
And if I had to choose only one, I'd go for substance...
Luckily those things usually go hand in hand
I'd say that 'usually' is more accurate than 'sometimes', but I'm no expert on martial combat, so I'll leave the discussion on that to more knowledgeable peeps.
"*Intellectuals, please respond*"
I think Will could whip my ass and I've probably got 30 pounds on him.
But yeah, the average guy doesn't train at all.
So a weight/muscle advantage is usually a big deal.
whoop your ass in what though, rolling?
rolling is a controlled enviornment that in my opinion isn't incredibly reflective of overall ability
Will trains Muay Thai too...
Ik he does more, haven't seen any of that before though so I just went with rolling
I definitely think jiu jitsu and grappling are less effective in street/group situations but that aside
I kid. I have a much longer background in boxing than I do in BJJ but I’d put BJJ up against anything one on one
Hahah I'm game, shame you dipped out early the last opportunity we had to spar at Sam's though
I'm eager to go rounds with some of you guys again
Don't Khabib me bro
I wuz duckin you bro
tfw he fights like a rat and wins
you have to respect his ground game I suppose... that doesnt mean it wasnt cheap and boring though...
mcgregor not havin a good week
He’s checked out. Checked out a long time ago I feel like
Before mayweather even
I think he's just about the $$$ now
I can't really blame him
dude has a son now, another kid on the way and millions of dollars to sit on...
a clothing brand, his own whiskey and a crazy amount of sponsorships, etc. etc.
Khabib fight gave him a ton of opportunity to advertise
As a novice lifter should you see 5 pound jump coming back to a compound movement after a killer lift from 2 days ago? Or is that asking too much?
I'm just asking because I seem to be not improving as fast as I'd like and I think it could be because I'm not getting enough calories or getting the proper nutrition. Not sure though
Your progression should be steady, you shouldn't be throwing on another 5 lbs whenever you feel like - ideally. If you aren't seeing progression, it's likely not enough food, poor diet, not enough sleep, etc.
Fixed dat typo tho
I've been trying to up the protein and eat more lately so hopefully that helps out
And some people naturally progress at certain lifts slower than others. It just depends.
It just seems like I can't get to 3 plates on squats. Makes me unmotivated as all hell. Feels bad man
Might just be an upper body gym bro
Gotta work for it
I've been squating 6sets of 4 then been doing weighted lunges. Probably should do some more deadlift work.
At what point in the lift are you getting stuck?
Had MRI yesterday and doctor cleared me for lifting and running after two weeks of rest. Returned to the gym and set weights at what I had a month ago. A setback but I am so happy I could keep progressing. We're all gonna make it.
We're all gonna make it brah
we're all gonna make it brah
we're all gonna make it brah
I'll be dammed if we don't
This looks beyond nice!
i’m going to switch from bike to stairmaster tomorrow
I have trouble with pull ups on account of my height (arm length) and weight. After two months serious lifting I can't even do one with good form. I noticed today my gym has a weight-assisted pull-up/dip machine. I'm doing to ditch dumbbell tricep kick backs and lat pull down (my form sucks) for use on this machine instead, and progressively lower counter-weight aide until I'm doing real pull-ups/dips.
I worked my way up with that back in the day
@Deleted User 6'9", although I may have shrunk to 6'8" due to manual labor and portaging canoes
Just went to the gym for the first time in a year. I have like 0 muscle mass and a joint disorder so everything felt really awkward
@NITRODUBS take it slow and light. Work on mobility and form, work up in weight
My boyfriend is pretty knowledgeable on fitness im probably gonna have to get his help for form lmao
this shit cracks me up
@Parsifal keep on the bike, just turn up the intensity. Wear a heart rate monitor to make your efforts objective. Aim for a target heart rate or above for target time duration.
is there a fitness server on slack
There is not, we have a few channels for it on Mercury.
So we can keep this server for now, and then just use Mercury at that time.
Just got the women’s server to add a fitness section because I figured most men and woman exercise a little differently/ have different goals. Plus it’s more comfy for women to post progress pictures and such in a female exclusive area. I’ll probably still direct a lot of my fitness questions here tho until the women’s server gets a little more active
I got the idea because I wanted to post before and after pics then realized it probably wouldn’t be appropriate on a male dominated server lmao
@NITRODUBS Yeah, good initiative. Get that female fitness section active!
REEE IM SO OPPRESSED!!!
And I don’t think this server wants me spamming my yoga crap lmao
@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA Is Arnold to be believed for people doing it natty, though? No way he wasn't on some kind of juice
Of course he was. He said that was one of the reasons for coming to the states was for better drugs. But his work out motivation and routines are still valuable.
Thats how I started lifting. My father followed him back when he was competing and taught me what he learned from Arnold.
Starting Strength is one of the best plans to start with in my opinion.
If one were looking for one to start
@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA I started with the turk meme stronglifts 5x5 added with curls and pulls. kettlebell and runs on off days. I am seeing great progress but it may be many more months until I get really big
I started with a month of keto too but now I am just at a generic low carb
keto gave me gut distress
I have a buddy that has been doing keto and has lost 20 lbs in a couple months. I dont think its for everyone though.
I have tried different routines but always come back to super sets as Arnold speaks about.
Chest/back, Biceps/Triceps integrate shoulders into either day. I also throw in some legs between the two days as well but sometimes just add a third day of legs.
@The Huwhyte Ulf - VA Yeha I lost 30 but I was 300 to start
Oh yes I always do weighted calf raises
They say calves recover quickly
Ive had that impression with mine. Gotta go heavy to see results. At least for myself
same with biceps.
Those are weak areas of mine
I just don't want to look weird, with big thighs and hips and butt from deadlifts and squats but tiny lower legs
Calves make or break you having "chicken legs"
Look up Kevin Nee, he is a strongman with basically nonexistent calves. It looks strange, but I don't think anyone ever thinks he skips leg day
Some peoples genetics dont allow their bodies to be as asthetic as others.
TBH yeah you need to put some work into them, but I think BIG calves are pretty ugly.
Nee looks fine.
Half joking here
they can definitely be aesthetic and add proportion, I'm just lazy about them
I got my calves from playing sports and hiking
Be a good Alpenmeister and go for a hike once a week
rucking is great
Arnolds high volume routine will work better if youre stickin a ml in your glute
Do a strength based routine, its better for building mass generally than a bb split
Add accessories as you see fit tailored to what you want to look like and where youre lacking
A strict diet and a strength routine with linear or at least some form of progression will take you places for sure as a natty. Doing a bb split as a beginner/intermediate lifter is wasting your time. You can get to your goals so much quicker with strength based progressions
What is a BB split?
Are you talking about a bro split/push pull legs routine? In that case, I'd totally disagree with you @BryceB-ND
I've seen so many dudes with SAD results sticking to solely a 5x5 routine
Nvm I see you didn't specifically mention 5x5. My bad
I do a ppl
Ppl is great
Bb i abbreviated bodybuilding
Im at the gym atm
>not working out at 5am
Are you even dedicated guys come on
>not working out TILL 5 am
I gotta be at work at 5 am tho
So I'm currently working out till then
>not doing le epic 25x25 for each lift xDDD
>5x5 Rippetoe leans
if you're not doing 10x10 @90% fullbody everyday, you're doing it wrong
Lol same i work early af
Sometimes i manage, sometimes i dont. Gf gets into a snoot if im awake to lift by 4, off work by 7 and in bed by 8 lol
The grind 😩
Wake at 5, work at 6, off at 3, gym between 5-8 and bed by 9.
Keeps a man honest with that schedule thats for sure
You hear very little about porn in the movement, but I believe it is very relevant. It’s a Jewish degenerate industry that is terrible for white men. It changes their brains; make it difficult to start and keep healthy relationships, high time preference for women; mind goes immediately to sex and keeps them beta in that regard. Keeps them depressed,And generally lowers their motivation in life. And it’s an epidemic. If you have a porn addiction I challenge you to admit to yourself what you have and begin a porn free life. Currently on day 9 of being porn free
It's just cucky in general
So good for you dude. gj
To anyone that still does. STOP varg.jpg
Autogynephilia is a danger too. I firmly believe many Transsexuals have been warped by porn!
googled what that is, what the fuck.
@Deleted User Yes, it is awful. But it explains how some trannies are made more than the dumb, globalist "born this way" pilpul.
I sincerely apologize if your evening meal was made unappetizing.
There aren't more trannies because "society is more accepting." It's the vast increase of biochemical contaminants and mind-virus (memes!) working in concert.
@⚡Clark⚡ Glad you brought that up. It is a major evil in the world. I never knew I had an issue with it until I met my gf. (now fiance)..it is the evil drug that nobody knows about. Took a little while to stop watching completely, it is addicting.
And yes, homosexuals and trannies watch large amounts from what I hear. It perverts you
Casual reminder, if you aren't headed to the gym right now at 5 AM, are you even white...??
@Tyler0317 Eh, only one squat rack and one bench at mine. So I avoid peak boomer hours.
Planet Fitness? ^^^
Nah it is a small town independent 24/7 place. It does have good free weight set up, just not enough for them.
Also if you're alone you can turn off the cable TV and listen to podcasts.
Thats cool. I go to Anytime Fitness because of it being open 24/7. They also have a decent free weight set up.
Is it a rule that any mainstream gym have to broadcast CNN or MSNBC on their TVs while people work out? I mean I dont like most of Fox News but come on. Put one TV on Fox to get some positive Trump coverage.
I pretty much only like Tucker on FOX and I definitely am not at gym at 7pm central
I go to Golds, they actually don't obnoxiously have TVs on every wall.
They have a few, and it's usually ESPN
why would you have a tv in a gym anyways?
For the fatties on the running machine things.
My gym is a warehouse filled with equipment for strongman and powerlifting that doesnt even have heating or AC
Always garage doors
Same with my gym but there is hvac
best gym ive ever went to.
current body, how do i look guys?
Is that actually you ? What do you compete in ?
Is that real?
If its not real then the question arises, why the hell does he have pictures of another guy posing...
Just finished early voting day workout.....
get those claves up and you will kill the competition
Is it possible to learn this power? 😧
Lol, he's my favorite Mohammed
Make it stop, ouch
How many of you guys can rep out muscle ups?
Ok this is worth the read
@John O - I can get 20 pull ups hut not one muscle up. I'm a muscle up virgin
Dude, I'm so close to a strict muscle up. I can do 2 kipping ones. It's so close, but so far
If I muscle up, my head goes through the ceiling, so
I can almost get my nips over the bar but that's it
Single bar Russian dips
The fuck is that never heard of it
Dips with one bar?
Nvm looked it up
You can Russian dip with two bars, but if you do it with one bar, it trains the upper half of the muscle up
It hit me today that not drinking soda very often has put me off of it for the most part, I used to drink like 3-4 a day just because, now, unless I'm eating something, its a struggle to get through a can, it hasn't even been that long, maybe 2-3 months its almost solely been water
Candy/sugar still has a hold of me but its not like I ever ate a lot of candy to begin with
You know what gets me really boiling is someone rotating through multiple machines. Ok I can get it if there are more than one of the same thing but if one of them is the only leg Press abd you're hogging 3 different things at once you're a fucking faggot
Super sets bruh...lol
