Also got Motivaiton Wallpapers for desktops if anyone is interested
That Hopsin quote about imagining yourself at 80 and what you regret about your youth is a good one.
Got one along those lines, here you go
Don't have any for phone unfortunately
Any ones related to Christianity?
Bible verses etc. I have this one which I will contribute.
>motivation from a guy whose tombstone reads "dont try"
Here's the one this is mocking
Got a vast library of motivational paragraphs, maybe you'll like this one better?
You got some awesome ones, thanks for posting

Feed me more inspiration, /fit/izens.
sorry to hear you feel that way
Used this on my MFP. Was very important to my surgery recovery.
something from an old chinese proverb i think fits
>the best time to start lifting was two years ago.
>the second best time is right now.
if someone can put this on a cool picture id appreciate it
Not the one you asked for, but another really good proverb
Moving into wallpapers now
If you use the palm of your hand, it's at a 90 degree angle to your wrist and puts strain on it
With your fist, or push up bars, your hand and wrist are aligned when doing pushups, and so it puts less strain on it
Personally, I can't do it with a fist,, it just hurts my knuckles and I can barely manage 10
Regular pushups put too much pressure on the wrist and can hurt quite a bit, especially to people that have wrist problems
Sorry man, got none - I use two monitors two, just duplicate the wallpaper.
He was also a fucking genius. No one in history was perfect.
Even people such as Gandhi was racist. Just because someone wasn't perfect doesn't mean the lessons they teach us through learning about their experiences are invalid. I'm sure that if there is a heaven or hell I'm pretty sure they'd do anything to come back and live on earth and fix those mistakes.
tl;dr no one is perfect, accept your imperfections and work on them, don't revere anyone as perfect. We're all just humans

whether it's muscles in your arm or hand or w/e that are trained, fact is that functional strength and control will improve.
Yeah my explanation sucked.. Basically with the middle phalanges of your hand on the ground. But not only those, try every variation you can find.

My dream is to be the next Bruce Lee, I was going to go to bed now, but I just remembered I have to stretch today, i'm so close to doing the splits.
Were all making it.
pic related, remember this advice, success breeds jealousy, and honestly speaking most of your obstacles will be your friends.
Speaking of which, I designed some dragon ball tank tops in case you anons wanted a cool design tank.
I have 7 days to get 150 sales (on 18 atm) so need to get some buyers, help an anon out
Thanks mate, definitely going to order one.
I fucking love this community. I always enjoy coming back here after a work out, to return to a community of motivators. No homo though.
That shit's just so fucking motivational and epic. Up to this day I still listen to the soundtrack for workouts. I still occasionally look up some of the most epic scenes.
ah, you again. Last time we talked about dbz you also offered. :D
I'm afraid I'm really living off of my last money atm, I can't buy one. I hope you can get it printed for the people that did order.
there was one that used basically this picture, anyone have it? reverse image search gave me nothing
forgot two motivationals..
last one is two-parter
this one is from quite recently
Guys, I just wanna say, I'm still new here, but I love you guys. These motivation threads are really helping me with motivating me to fight through this phase of severe depression I'm going through, and it really means alot. Even if it's not your intentions.
A lot of the people here have probably been there, so we feel you. I was until about a month ago, worst period of my life. I know this means nothing to you right now because you can't see it, but it gets better. I promise. Take it one day at a time, you'll be a stronger man when you come out of it.
>eat too much
>be five foot seven
>be older fag
>sit on your ass
>current lifts on SS
>still adding weight every session
I have been in your situation. I've had severe depression for a number of years, but 3 years ago I decided to make a change. I still have bad days, but life are so much better now. Hang in there. I fucking promise you; it WILL get better.
fucking ken masters exploding fucking prison like a fucking missile after watching fucking bison fucking choking his bitch gf like a whore fucking fantastic
That's tough, but keep up hope. I've literally been in and out of treatment for at least 10 years. Been on a lot of medication. It even got to a point, where doctors wanted to put me in psychiatric hospital to prevent from killing myself.
I can honestly, without a shadow of a doubt, say that one of the very best tools to help me recover have been lifting.

Greatest sports manga ever forged, and the first 2 seasons are the cream of the crop when it comes to sports anime.
This is the one that gets me off my ass on my worst days.

Well, I'm done, hope you enjoyed or something.
Number 4 is my fav of the ones I dumped.
First time posting this, cap from /k/.
Helped me at least.
Once in a thread, I told a portion of my story, one that pertained mostly to my situation at the time. I have never been one to feel sorry for myself, but every time I do, I look at this screencap from the thread. I realize no matter how hard what I go through seems, someone else thinks it is easy, and no matter how easy what I do is, someone else thinks it is hard. I just want to make sure the latter outweighs the former.
This one haunts me. When I look at how I squandered all my potential from my youth.
The worst thing is I moved away from my hometown in my teens. When I catch up with friends from there, and we see how each others lives are doing....I can see the disappointment on their face.
Fuck, I even had one girl say to me sadly; "I don't know Anon, I just thought you would have been SOMEONE...."
Motherfucking Jack Lalanne made it to 96 and was still able to take care of himself.
What are you going to do at 96?
Make sure you keep going. I was at 104kg's of lazy fat in November last year. I was also on the verge of killing myself (a stranger actually interrupted the act).
It's 6 months and change later and I'm at 77kg's.
I still have a lot of problems (A LOT) to sort out. But I can't tell you how immeasurably better life has gotten from my perspective. And I don't mean stupid petty shit, like girls mirin' (though it's nice), or being able to wear normal clothes and shit. But the biggest thing was seeing myself change, physically in the mirror and photographs over the last few months.
Knowing that once I pushed past that initial hurdle of doubt and self pity and all that other shit, that I would wake up in a few months radically physically changed, just from forcing myself to keep going through those rough few weeks/months.
It helped me have a completely new outlook on life, once that I haven't had since I was in my early teens. Basically cementing this abstract concept of setting a goal and reaching it. Actually doing it was more motivating than anything I have ever read. And trust me, I was plagued by self doubt at the beginning. I figured I would never lose the weight. It would never happen. I'd revert to being a fat shit. Now it's the opposite, I keep getting excited about taking the next step and the next step to being a better me. I couldn't even imagine that 7 months ago.
So whatever you do dude, make sure you fight really, really hard to make it through the beginning. To hold on and ride it out, because it actually gets easier and easier once you build momentum.
>inb4 stfu faggot
Listening to Hardcore History this past few days on the history of the Mongols.
First fucking thing Genghis Khan told his sons was (to extremely loosely paraphrase); Keep YOUR kids in poverty and hardship, otherwise the faggots will go soft and instead of desiring war and conquest, they'll just sit on their asses and enjoy the spoils we earned for them.
Sure enough they grew up rich and protected and turned to fighting each other over the inheritance right when they were about to take Western Europe.
Spent the last 5 years treating myself like shit. Letting all those years go to waste.
When you look back at 5 years of your life and can't account for a single worthwhile or positive thing about them, you suddenly have time and how precious it is snap into focus.
depression is just a thing, bro
you'll make it
we all will
Fuck bro, I have those feelings all the time.
I told everyone I was going to be a doctor. I was going to go to Stanford, already accepted before my senior year in HS was over. Getting all A's, captain of the academic decathlon team, 1600 on SAT score (when 1600 was max), etc. etc.
And then I don't know what happened. Failed out of a community college instead of going to Stanford for some reason. Just barely started going back to school 2 years ago (am 28 now) but all that fucking wasted potential. I feel like I can't face anyone from before, not even my grandparents. [spoiler]especially since I'm in a nursing program now[/spoiler]
>She slipped a second disc in her neck after this
>We had to put her down in 2008
>Still miss her every day
Say not in grief: "She is no more." but live in thankfulness that she was.
Wow. That actually got me. Holy shit.
Bravo, motivationals/stories are nice and all, but they usually don't GET to me. This one did. Respect for this brotha, he's makin it. We're all gonna make it.
wait, so he just stopped caring, basically gave up, and then all his training coincidentally rewarded him at the right moment? doesn't seem very motivational.
kenshin on the other hand
>burned out as shit, just used ultimate move three times in a row
>came from beating two people only slightly weaker than him
>fights with the dull edge of a sword
>fends off the lull of sweet death
>lives for the people he cares about instead of dying for them
>still doesn't call "the bad guy" a bad guy
that guy did me wonders as a teen.
Just ordered a shirt and a tank. It might be a good idea to post this on /b/ or even /a/ to get some more support. Also, if the goal is reached, is it possible to order more? I'm thinking about buying another shirt as a gift.
>tfw you aren't swole enough to wear a tank in public
I got a t-shirt, and I want the hoodie, but I didn't order it yet because I don't want to spend that much at once.
I have the same question as this guy >>26931899
Can we order more afterwards, so I can get the hoodie?
>tfw found my new gym t-shirt
Yeah it doesn't matter if it goes over the target. So you can order more for others. I posted it on /a/ they told me to fuck off and I got reported for advertising lol. Yeah you can buy several shirts that would be fine (I originally designed it because there were no simplistic dragonball tank tops and I want one so bad).
Yeah you can order more afterwards. Yeah it's gonna be my gym shirt too
