really helped

2017-12-09 20:56:42 UTC


2017-12-09 21:25:34 UTC

@JohnStrasser How do you know if it's straining the wrong part of the knee?

2017-12-09 21:26:02 UTC

@Deleted User just a heads up as well I ordered 2 mediums and they shipped me a med and a large on accident

2017-12-09 21:26:16 UTC

Might be worth going with sbd instead

2017-12-09 22:20:27 UTC

@Deleted User buy either SBD, STrong, or Rehband knee sleeves.

2017-12-09 22:20:58 UTC

If you buy the cheap shit, it will do a shit job and won't last very long.

2017-12-09 22:24:08 UTC

i have rehbands, they're good quality

2017-12-09 22:35:26 UTC

@Nick-NJ How do you know if the sleeve isn't assisting the knee in load balancing?

2017-12-09 22:41:47 UTC

I can usually tell by how snug the fit is and by the thickness of the sleeve

2017-12-09 22:42:30 UTC

The best sleeves are all neoprene and are labelled in terms of whether they go on the right or left knee

2017-12-09 23:01:15 UTC

@Deleted User know what's wrong with your knee and find the right brace for your issue

2017-12-10 01:03:13 UTC

@JohnStrasser I'm not sure what's wrong with them, they just hurt in the joint when I squat or walk up stairs etc etc

2017-12-10 01:03:25 UTC

Been like that for a couple of years now

2017-12-10 01:03:37 UTC

would you say the pain is directly in the middle of you knee

2017-12-10 01:03:40 UTC

My family has a history of knee replacements

2017-12-10 01:03:42 UTC


2017-12-10 01:03:47 UTC

also does jumping hurt

2017-12-10 01:03:49 UTC

Its in the joint

2017-12-10 01:03:57 UTC

sounds like meniscus

2017-12-10 01:03:58 UTC

Jumping doesn't hurt that much

2017-12-10 01:04:09 UTC

Its not a lot of pain

2017-12-10 01:04:21 UTC

But it's noticeable, like a bruise I guess

2017-12-10 01:04:28 UTC

depending on how serious the tear is, its not always that painful

2017-12-10 01:04:34 UTC

could be a minor tear

2017-12-10 01:04:35 UTC


2017-12-10 01:04:40 UTC

I'll talk to a doc

2017-12-10 01:05:03 UTC

research laterall meniscus tears

2017-12-10 01:05:31 UTC


2017-12-10 01:47:12 UTC

@Deleted User do you experience a lot of knee valgus when squatting?

2017-12-10 01:47:35 UTC

Valgus? @Nick-NJ#9920

2017-12-10 01:47:58 UTC

@Deleted User knees bent inward

2017-12-10 01:48:09 UTC

"knocking knees"

2017-12-10 01:49:02 UTC

Knees bent inward? Eww. That sounds like snap city

2017-12-10 03:11:52 UTC

It's very common depending on your skeletal structure. I'm prone to valgus when squatting, and it's the main culprit of my knee pain

2017-12-10 03:14:25 UTC


2017-12-10 03:14:43 UTC

Gotta work on that hip strength. I started falling into it for a while But have largely fixed it bow

2017-12-10 03:14:46 UTC


2017-12-10 03:46:46 UTC

I have it but not much, may 3-5 degrees of it @Nick-NJ

2017-12-10 18:01:07 UTC

@everyone Anybody here who went from being in pretty bad shape to being in pretty good shape? How long did your transformation take and what all did you do to get in shape?

2017-12-10 18:02:03 UTC

how out of shape are you?

2017-12-10 18:02:27 UTC

how overweight/underweight and where are your baseline lifts right now?

2017-12-10 18:16:44 UTC

Went from being 230lbs with chest pain and a tobacco problem at the end of 2015 to 170 at my lowest a year ago. That was solely because of diet change. Sedentary lifestyle persisted for a while.
Since then I got more active, going through a few months of daily weight room work, but I lost interest in bulking and bought a road bike.
Ultimately bringing me to today where I’m more interested on cardio and endurance events and functional strength.
It all started by my feeling like shit daily and quitting tobacco and weekly drinking. Little steps and small personal victories work wonders on your willpower

2017-12-10 18:17:25 UTC

I'm not particularly underweight but I'm kinda small. I have no idea what baseline lifts are

2017-12-10 18:27:15 UTC

It’s always best to start with the smallest lifts possible (e.g. bar only) in order to master the form

2017-12-10 18:27:46 UTC

Some exercises like deadlift have 135lb minimum weight since the bar has to rest high enough off the floor

2017-12-10 18:28:45 UTC

Tbh I've never lifted in a gym

2017-12-10 18:29:03 UTC

I exercise at work. I don't really have the time or access to a gym.

2017-12-10 18:37:49 UTC


2017-12-10 18:38:14 UTC

@everyone this should be the Avatar for this chat.

2017-12-10 18:48:10 UTC

How small are you @StrawberryArmada

2017-12-10 18:49:38 UTC

@Ben - OH , you can get 25# or even 10# bumper place that are the same diameter as the 45s. Not at your local globogym though.

2017-12-10 18:49:52 UTC

I am 6'5" and weigh about 160lb

2017-12-10 18:50:00 UTC

Holy shit

2017-12-10 18:50:06 UTC

I'm 5' 11" and 160

2017-12-10 18:50:06 UTC

Y’all and skinny

2017-12-10 18:50:09 UTC

2017-12-10 18:50:16 UTC

I used to have an ED

2017-12-10 18:50:17 UTC


2017-12-10 18:50:26 UTC

Nigga u a javalin

2017-12-10 18:50:27 UTC

That's why I don't weight a ton

2017-12-10 18:50:53 UTC

GOMAD but unironically

2017-12-10 18:51:01 UTC

I've gained about 30 pounds in the last year and a half or so

2017-12-10 18:51:10 UTC

You should probably pack on the pounds before you start to lift

2017-12-10 18:51:16 UTC

130lb and 6'5"

2017-12-10 18:51:18 UTC

Wait, you were even thinner?

2017-12-10 18:51:18 UTC


2017-12-10 18:51:21 UTC


2017-12-10 18:51:37 UTC

twigniggaz ITT

2017-12-10 18:51:49 UTC

Lifting will help stimulate his appetite and put on the right kind of weight though

2017-12-10 18:51:55 UTC

The reason i ask is I'm naturally a small guy. In my late teens early 20's I went from 6 foot 130 to 6 foot 175 with dbol and working out. But then I quit and went back down to like 140 and stayed there till I was 30 and now at 32 I've gotten back to 178 by eating right and working out. The main thing is consuming more calories than you burn.

2017-12-10 18:52:03 UTC

I'd recommend a fat and protein diet

2017-12-10 18:52:10 UTC

@StrawberryArmada you can put on weight and muscle mass pretty quickly if you're already smaller/underweight

2017-12-10 18:52:13 UTC

just eat way more

2017-12-10 18:52:15 UTC

eat all the time

2017-12-10 18:52:16 UTC

Steak and eggs sauteed in lots of butter

2017-12-10 18:52:18 UTC

as much as you can

2017-12-10 18:52:20 UTC

and lift all the time

2017-12-10 18:52:32 UTC

I try to eat 2800 calories a day

2017-12-10 18:52:35 UTC

Nah bro, this guy needs high everything

2017-12-10 18:52:38 UTC

and take a fiber supplement as well so that the extra food intake doesnt fuck with youre GI too much

2017-12-10 18:52:41 UTC

Not just fat and protein

2017-12-10 18:52:52 UTC

You must have an insane metabolism

2017-12-10 18:52:52 UTC

Don't pack on lbs and then lift start liftin asap and starting consuming as many calories as you can. I eat 3600 a day.

2017-12-10 18:52:56 UTC

Like superhuman tier

2017-12-10 18:52:57 UTC

Eat pasta and rice and oats

2017-12-10 18:53:12 UTC

Yes oatmeal in the morning is best

2017-12-10 18:53:19 UTC

I'd recommend going with really fatty meats like fried duck

2017-12-10 18:53:23 UTC

Oatmeal with peanut butter, coconut milk, banana, almonds and protein powder

2017-12-10 18:53:24 UTC

Yep calories and carbs are your friend.

2017-12-10 18:53:28 UTC

That's my goal. I usually and land between 2000 and 2800

2017-12-10 18:53:44 UTC

I don't eat meat btw

2017-12-10 18:53:44 UTC

a dozen eggs in the morning

2017-12-10 18:53:50 UTC

That’s the breakfast of champions

2017-12-10 18:53:50 UTC

It's very easy to hit 2500+ daily if you eat high fat foods

2017-12-10 18:54:12 UTC

sautee all your meals in butter

2017-12-10 18:54:29 UTC

Even my yogurt?

2017-12-10 18:54:30 UTC

Vegetarian is like physique hard mode

2017-12-10 18:54:32 UTC


2017-12-10 18:54:35 UTC

especially your yogurt

2017-12-10 18:54:38 UTC


2017-12-10 18:54:44 UTC

You need to lift along with this too. But only lightly. I dont mean to sound offensive but you may be too thin to really push yourself in the gym at this point

2017-12-10 18:54:59 UTC

generally avoiding meat is a good habit to get into in my opinion

2017-12-10 18:55:00 UTC

I lift at work

2017-12-10 18:55:02 UTC

especially read meat

2017-12-10 18:55:09 UTC

Never even been in a gym

2017-12-10 18:55:16 UTC

I eat 4 bowls of oatmeal a day. I eat chicken pork tuna and beef with rice or pasta. Also to trick your metabolism you have to eat more frequently.

2017-12-10 18:55:18 UTC

Closest one is 45 minutes away

2017-12-10 18:55:20 UTC

the gym would echo with the sound of a snapping tree branch

2017-12-10 18:55:52 UTC

We have some equipment at work

2017-12-10 18:55:54 UTC

I would get dumbells and use those at home. There's plenty of exercises you can do that can build mass with dumbells.

2017-12-10 18:56:03 UTC

So I use it and work out with my coworkers

2017-12-10 18:56:14 UTC

can you deadlift at work?

2017-12-10 18:56:17 UTC

Ive not had a gym membership in over a year I work out at home and have a very physical job. But you need to be doing the biggest lifts that you can.

2017-12-10 18:56:25 UTC

focusing on bulking your center mass is what you want

2017-12-10 18:56:32 UTC

target your core imo

2017-12-10 18:56:32 UTC

Adjustable dumbbells, pull-up bar, elliptical

2017-12-10 18:56:44 UTC

I have no idea what a deadlift is tbh

2017-12-10 18:56:56 UTC

or bench presses

2017-12-10 18:58:36 UTC


2017-12-10 18:58:44 UTC

google is your friend when it comes to lifting. I recommend for small guys like us definitely doing the big three deadlift squat and bench press

2017-12-10 18:58:48 UTC

Deadlift ^^

2017-12-10 18:58:51 UTC

As heavy as you can.

2017-12-10 19:09:09 UTC

What’s this no red meat madness? Red meat is a health food

2017-12-10 19:10:18 UTC

Get that natural creatine with red meat boyyy

2017-12-10 19:10:57 UTC

A push away from men eating red meat is a ploy by the globalists to weaken strong men.

2017-12-10 19:12:18 UTC
2017-12-10 19:12:25 UTC

If you stop eatint red meat, little vaginas grow all over your body.

2017-12-10 19:12:41 UTC

^^^truth haha

2017-12-10 19:13:12 UTC

The push to eat red meat is a ploy by globalist to destroy the ecology of our homelands and make us obese and defenseless

2017-12-10 19:13:58 UTC

How does eating red meat make you obese? Is it not the sugar epidemic thats included in most foods these days?

2017-12-10 19:14:08 UTC

and terrible fast foods

2017-12-10 19:15:39 UTC

I direct you to look at a fast-food menu

2017-12-10 19:15:55 UTC


2017-12-10 19:15:58 UTC


2017-12-10 19:17:07 UTC

I just noticed you anglicized your name

2017-12-10 19:17:23 UTC

Are some kinda *gat dang unionist*

2017-12-10 19:20:35 UTC

@Ben - OH red meat is THE health food.

2017-12-10 19:20:42 UTC

I did not eat any red meat on Tuesday, November 14th 2004 and Wednesday, November 15th and on Thursday i was prego!

2017-12-10 19:21:28 UTC

@StrawberryArmada yeah man I’m a damn sellout

2017-12-10 19:22:55 UTC

You better Gaelicise you name back sir

2017-12-10 19:23:04 UTC

Muh conversations are moving around like Jews in medieval Europe

2017-12-11 00:20:02 UTC

Was just perusing this feed and noticed that a bunch of people in here don’t know much about heavy weight lifting—which is, of course, okay. But I’ll throw a few tips to help you get big fast. First off, don’t go to the gym and just do whatever workouts you’re feeling. Hit one or two muscle groups with 3 or 4 different workouts—2 if you’re short on time

2017-12-11 00:26:46 UTC

... For each of those workouts, you should do 3 or 4 sets. If you’re a beginner, don’t over exert yourself—this will sacrifice your technique and end up injuring you or making your body disproportionate. Always isolate the muscles you’re working (watch videos on this, it’s a lot to explain—but for instance, don’t arch your back when doing shoulder press; hold your elbows in place by your sides when you’re doing curls)

2017-12-11 00:28:20 UTC


2017-12-11 00:28:24 UTC

Screenshot of my week

2017-12-11 00:32:34 UTC

Figure out the max weight you can do 10 reps of without sacrificing your form. Try to do 4 sets of 6-10. When you’ve perfected your form and gained some strength, start doing what they call the reverse pyramid method: more weight and fewer reps for the first set, adding reps and removing weight with each set (for instance bench press: set 1-185lbs—4 reps; set 2-165lbs—6 reps; set 3-145lbs—8 reps)

2017-12-11 00:33:07 UTC

When I started doing that I was going up in weight literally every time I went to the gym for about 2 straight months

2017-12-11 00:34:22 UTC

And it’s good to eat protein, but it’s most crucial to eat protein as soon as you get home from working out. Your muscles get the most benefit from protein within 30 minutes after you finish your workout

2017-12-11 00:35:17 UTC

I could add more but my fingers are tired. These are just some basic concepts to use as a bedrock for your daily routine

2017-12-11 03:56:08 UTC

Suggestion: Maybe adding a "Injury" channel. Obviously won't ever replace an actual professional opinion, but it wouldn't hurt to at least get some advice before you go to that point.

2017-12-11 03:56:13 UTC

There's nothing in the channel for me

2017-12-11 11:45:21 UTC

@ThisIsChris is working with that channel to get it set up as a group channel prototype

2017-12-11 11:45:52 UTC

Can you help out with this brother?

2017-12-11 23:46:58 UTC

Tap and hold on the channel title, then mark as read

2017-12-11 23:53:35 UTC

Finally cleared to start lifting again after my back injury. 20 minutes in got me like.

2017-12-12 00:10:52 UTC

@whiskeytangofoxtrot how is it now?

2017-12-12 01:26:47 UTC

It kicked me from it, but that’s fine. Everything is looking good. Thanks.

2017-12-12 02:33:03 UTC

@whiskeytangofoxtrot nope you weren't kicked I just deleted the channel (it had just been for testing purposes)

Can anyone recommend me a good backpack for hiking with heavy loads? And maybe a pair of boots to go along? Thanks.

2017-12-12 19:28:20 UTC

Osprey is what I use for backpack. Salewa hiking boots.

2017-12-12 19:32:07 UTC

I use Salomon boots, GTX2 mid- really like them. Haglöfs backpack

2017-12-12 20:24:58 UTC

Osprey is pretty good. I have an Osprey 75 litre pack, Merrell Phaserbound boots, Carhartt cargo pants and Carhartt merino wool socks. If you use good boots, dont go cheap on the socks. Merino wool socks are the best, as wool retains most of your body heat even when wet.

2017-12-12 21:18:26 UTC

Any tips for someone looking to get back in shape after suffering a foot injury? Under doctors orders I'm supposed to refrain from running, lower body workouts.

2017-12-12 21:19:13 UTC

Since the injury I've gained 30lbs. I'm horribly out of shape after nearly 4 months of zero physical activity

2017-12-12 21:23:03 UTC

How to work out without using your lower body? Damn, thats a tough one.

2017-12-12 21:23:52 UTC

Yeah it's pretty limited. My foot had a few breaks so I can't do anything until March.

2017-12-12 21:37:05 UTC

Bench press, or curls. Get creative.

2017-12-12 21:37:27 UTC

Pull ups

2017-12-12 21:37:32 UTC

Push ups

2017-12-12 21:37:34 UTC


2017-12-12 23:00:39 UTC

Pushups may not be a good idea because you have to use the tip of the foot as a balance point.

2017-12-12 23:01:06 UTC

Pullups and bench press, yes.

2017-12-13 00:11:27 UTC

@Deleted User I still use my steel framed ALICE pack. An oldie but a goodie.

I used to carry 120lb loads several times, with no stress on the pack.

2017-12-13 00:12:47 UTC

I bought upgraded shoulder pads and a kidney belt, for like $40 you can make a military surplus pack modern and comfortable.

2017-12-13 00:15:36 UTC

Yeah I want some good chest/core straps but an old military looking backpack

2017-12-13 01:20:17 UTC

I recommend someone doing short videos showing perfect form/technique and the muscle group it’s working. For instance showing in one video how to strengthen each muscle in your legs, another for arms, then chest and back, etc. Another idea is showing perfect form of stretching. Flexibility is just as imports as strength.

2017-12-13 19:06:57 UTC

Just did a 6.5 minute mile after over an hour of working out

2017-12-13 19:07:03 UTC

Feels good to be back in shape boys

2017-12-13 21:23:07 UTC

Will be going to some cuckservative thing called the Student Action Sumit next week. Any good ideas for subtle redpill questions to ask our boy Ben?

2017-12-14 00:37:32 UTC

Had a heavy lifting day and the Steam room really helped my muscles recover. This was my first time trying this method and if it worked for me, it’ll work for you.

2017-12-14 00:38:27 UTC

Steam room is the best lol

2017-12-14 00:39:03 UTC

Love the steam room. I go there every time I get a cold

2017-12-14 00:39:05 UTC

or sinus infection

2017-12-14 00:39:46 UTC

Though I don't lift weights I'm only cycling, still get sore muscles

Makes me wish I can have a steam room at home lol

2017-12-14 00:42:00 UTC

Ya. It smelled like eucalyptus though. Mmm

2017-12-14 00:42:37 UTC

Nice, that sounds like some therapeutic shit 😁

2017-12-14 00:43:15 UTC

Hmm the steam room at my YMCI smells kind of like bad

2017-12-14 00:43:17 UTC

24 hour gym, baby!!

2017-12-14 00:44:47 UTC

Ah cool 24 hour gym access lucky

2017-12-14 00:46:30 UTC

YMCA is legit, Brookey Brooke.

2017-12-14 00:50:11 UTC

It's nice having indoor pool access

2017-12-14 00:51:45 UTC

Even though it can be full of people of color

2017-12-14 01:00:55 UTC

Are you a swimmer?

2017-12-15 02:51:51 UTC

@Deleted User I can't post in <#389501638844350474>

How bout now?

All good!

tbh if you figure out a way to get your workout in before work or school, in the morning, its so much easier to stick to it

2017-12-16 01:14:28 UTC

My only off day is sunday, Im making very good gains. 6 days specifically because you get the Lord's day off and because when I played lacrosse they weren't legally allowed to work us past 6 days a week or something along those lines

2017-12-16 01:14:43 UTC

the school district banned 7days/week of workouts, they required we get a day off

2017-12-16 01:15:34 UTC

seems like a good system tbh, you can do spend 2-3 days working other muscle groups and letting the ones you hit a while ago rest, but compress 2 weeks of work into one week. I used to only hit 4 days/week and prefer 6 days a week much more. Whether Ill continue to see gains past several months remains to be seen.

2017-12-16 01:15:48 UTC

just dont burn yourself out. lifting is all about consistency

2017-12-16 01:37:33 UTC


2017-12-16 01:38:03 UTC

Yeah, a lot of it is about routine, repetition and rest (PATIENCE)

2017-12-16 11:41:49 UTC

@Koba#0202 I’ve always been a big believer that morning lifting is best for consistency because you never know what kind of chaos will throw you off later in the day.

2017-12-16 16:20:39 UTC

@Deleted User yeah that's what's always thrown me off my routine in the past. Once I missed one day it made it more difficult to make up that missed day and hit my weekly goal. I would end up losing a lot of momentum

2017-12-16 16:52:10 UTC

Here is a program I wrote. I will follow for 8 weeks. Any criticism


2017-12-16 16:57:58 UTC

Deadlift on back day, it's one of the big 3

2017-12-16 16:58:16 UTC

I wouldn't squat and deadlift on the same day, but that's just me.

2017-12-16 16:58:45 UTC

10 sets, 10 reps... I wouldn't do it

2017-12-16 16:59:49 UTC

I guess it works for lean muscle and endurance

2017-12-16 16:59:58 UTC

Not ideal for strength or size

2017-12-16 17:01:21 UTC

Do you do the cardio before or after your lifting? @Alfred-22

2017-12-16 17:15:43 UTC


2017-12-16 17:15:49 UTC

Looks pretty good to me

2017-12-16 17:15:57 UTC

With probably 5 minutes of cardio as warm up

2017-12-16 17:16:21 UTC

@Deleted User Yeah I am not really doing it for strength. I have followed quite a few strength programs. This is for volume.

2017-12-16 17:16:46 UTC

@Deleted User Thanks. The only thing it needs is a good sprint day.

2017-12-16 17:18:45 UTC

@Deleted User I do proper deadlifts. NO romanian deadlifts or straight leg deadlifts for me. So I hardly count it as a back workout.

2017-12-16 19:37:14 UTC


2017-12-16 19:59:01 UTC

I usually do like 15 - 20 minutes of cardio before lifting, both to warm up and because Im usually spent by the time I finish a lifting session

2017-12-17 00:52:50 UTC

If anyone is considering joining a local sparring club but thinks they’re not in good enough shape... just remember- it’s not the size of the man in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the man. https://youtu.be/JhZpTjj3KxM
