When I cut alcohol and refined sugar for a couple of months I was much happier and more productive.
Yet I eventually turned back to occasional sugary snacks and excessive levels of alcohol. Go figure. The Matrix was right when it indicated that [some] humans can't deal with perfection. Short term pleasure is just so much more tempting than long term satisfaction.
>>7291488 The thing is, it isn't that hard. Once you're used to the difficulty, like the dark souls and bloodbourne games, you get used to it.
I lift weights three times a week and in the summer bicycle 20 to 50 miles a day depending on my schedule. I still drink tons of beer and eat like shit from time to time (while still eating loads of veggies always). All despite having a bagina.
You gotta invest yourself fully into whatever you want to do if you really want to see results and not fuck up.
>>7291549 You fucked up. Rotator cuffs are super important and yet there's very little ligament and muscular support for it. I've got a genetic issue where I'm very very flexible, which means my sleeping pose feels comfy, but it's actually fucking up my cuffs. I have a specific low weight 25 minute workout just for my shoulders. After breaking my collarbone bicycling and because of aforementioned stretching issue I not only had a shortened clavicle, I had a winged scapula. Fixed it all with rows, and my dedicated shoulder work out. Took 2 months though after fixing my posture and waiting for the massive shoulder pain to subside.
Look up workouts for sore rotator cuffs. Lay off the over head movements unless you have your posture absolutely correct. It is either your sleeping posture, or your form while lifting that fucked up your shoulder. Using light weights should never be an issue. You should never get your ego wrapped up in weights. It make zero sense to do so. You'd only be hurting yourself. Form is god, form is king, posture is queen. All hail.
>>7291580 I know that doing hard weights and taking long breaks makes more sense than doing easy weights and taking short breaks, but recovering from my situation I'll take your advice more seriously than I would have otherwise.
>>7291586 It makes sense for building as much mass as possible in the shortest amount of time, but it ignores posture, joints, and ligaments. Shoulders rely on three major ligaments in the back part of them. There isn't a bug bulky muscle there that you can build. Balancing your pecs, lats, and delts can help, but those ligaments are just as important when it comes to shoulder health. That's why your posture is so important. With how often people sit today it's very easy to let your shoulders slide forward.
Google shoulder stretches and posture exercises. Pay very close attention to how your body feels. As much attention as possible. Look at yourself in a mirror if possible. Shirtless. Get a real understanding of your anatomy. It will really help.
Shoulder and back issues are my bread and butter for the last year. There's a lot of good information on Google but you really need to understand your own posture and anatomy before you apply it.
