Should watching Dragon Ball Z be included in the sticky? It's full of lessons not only about lifting but also about life and i think it's a must watch for anyone wanting to get /fit/
>10,000 rep 1-arm pushups in hypergravity
>Die so you can train with a god
>Almost get killed 3xF
Congratulations you are now the most powerful being in the universe
>die of "heart disease" totally unrelated to roid use
that's not true, the goal of /fit/, like dragonball z, is to embrace the autism to get fucking joocy
lemme break it down for you like this
you know who has the most normal relationships in the show? Like, multiple girlfriends, a wife, and a kid? Krillin, and he's a weak bitch. But he wasn't always this way - it only started once he started engaging in normal social activity - around the Saiyan saga, when he dated Marron. This cost him his gains, his money, and his relevance as a character - but this is only exhibit A.
Now, let's examine Goku for a second - through dragonball, he's very strong relative to the other characters - until he starts fucking with bitches (ChiChi) towards the end of the original show and gets married. He hits a plateau, and stays there for years, only to get fucked up by his much stronger brother, who (no homo) hangs out with 2 other dudes for years at a time. He gets killed, and therefore separated from Chichi. You know what happens then? The gains train leaves station, he becomes 10 times stronger over the course of a year. But, when he gets back home and starts hanging out with his wife, the gains train grinds to a halt, and only starts back up again when he leaves his bitch gains goblin wife to go to another planet. And now that he's light-years away from her, he goes fucking super saiyan. As you can see, proximity to bitches is inversely proportional to gains. Think about it, whenever Goku makes big off-screen gains, it's when he's nowhere near his wife, or any kind of pussy for that matter.
This point is also illustrated loud and clear by Vegeta's story. For a time, he is prince of the bros - the strongest onscreen character, a no-homo manlet. But, he falls off hard - suspiciously around the time he meets, and subsequently gets it in Bulma. Since Vegeta's home planet was destroyed at a young age, it can be assumed that this is when he turned in his V-card.
(to be continued)
alot of hte time its less and closer too 6-8 hours a night but godamn no matter how long im in bed in 8-10 hours later my eyes are red and shutting but i cannot sleep
i'm not gonna make it bros... probably that thing where you stop breathing at night... me mum 'as it as well... fugg
hajime no ippo needs to be in the sticky.
Nah. It perpetuates the retarded myth that you can get jacked by doing millions of push ups. Besides, we should be telling people to go workout, not sit down and watch something.
He is the strongest human by far, and the best at training (he basically gave up half of his adult life to train on roshis island). Its not his fault that he doesnt get a Zenkai every time he gets fucked up like the saiyans. By the time he gets a kid and wife he is entering legit middle age.
Also, Goku confirmed for worst dad ever, and Vegetas failures start as soon as he meets Goku.
We're all gonna make it brah.
But, now that his V-card is gone, so is his strength relative to other characters - he's a fucking chump compared to Goku power-wise at this stage, because he's situated himself near, as well as inside of, Bulma's vagina. This shits practically kryptonite, and stops him from reaching Super Saiyan no matter how hard he trains. So, he gets pissed and flies off into space, leaving Bulma and his unborn illegitimate son behind. Seconds later, not only does he become a Super Saiyan, but he becomes even stronger than Goku - and once again, the strongest, most autistic character on screen. This drastic shift in relative power is as much because of Vegeta's increase in autism as it is goku's decrease in autism (returning to his wife and kid). He has on and off spurts of growth in his power, which correlates strongly against his relationship with Bulma. Interestingly enough, in the new DBZ movie, when the antagonist slaps Bulma and renders her unconscious, Vegeta becomes stronger than SSJ3 Goku as a SSJ2 - most likely because Bulma was unable to channel her gains suppressing magic.
Piccolo, on the other hand, is an odd case, probably because he's not a human, or human looking, so he follows different rules. But, it follows the same general principle - his kryptonite is also his love interests - little boys. Initially, when Piccolo is alone, he don't play no shit and is a hard nigga. That is, until he meets Gohan - he quickly drops from being the second or third most powerful onscreen character to at best, the fourth or fifth. He momentarily recovers his power by training in isolation from Gohan after being killed, and again by taking another man inside of him (Nail) on Namek. However, his intimacy with Gohan returns, and his gains recede. He makes a small comeback when he takes a second man inside of him (Kami). But, during the Buu saga when he has TWO boy love interests (Trunks and Gotenks) is when he becomes completely irrelevant.
>girls are bad for gains
>autism is good for gains
Also mirin your dedication and work you put into saying girls are bad, on /r9k/ they never go so in depth and draw graphs to illustrate their despise of females.
Now what if you take into account saiyan women? Would they be good for gains as they will want to train as much as their man, so real girls like Sophie Arvebrink are acceptable mates for /fit/izens
Reading all the retarded shit in this thread brings up a lot of feels
>heh, dbz was pretty cool as a kid, would be a nice nostalgia trip to watch some again
>wow these guys watched a lot of dbz. there were movies?
>huh it seems like they still watch it a lot. and think about it a lot.
>why does this guy think girls are bad for your gains? I'm happy my girlfriend goes to the gym with me
>ok these people are sad and weird.
>Goku confirmed for worst dad ever
Seriously this. As a kid I idolized Goku, but when I got older, dated, married, had some kids, and rewatched DBZ I thought he was the worst father and husband in history.
Still a pretty dope guy otherwise.
When you can balance a family life with saving the universe numerous times then you have an argument, he may not have been there for his wife and kid but without him they wouldn't be alive
that's hard to say since there's not an abundance of Saiyan women in the canon. The only example I can think of would be Goku's mom - but this only confirms the trend we've been seeing, since Goku's dad is only able to go super saiyan AFTER Goku's mom is dead. But that's non canon movie bullshit anyway.
I think the more interesting example to examine would be how chiaotzu effected Tien's gains over time - because chiaotzu is a female, or something. The only time I can think of where they were seen apart so we could measure the difference is when chiaotzu blew his/herself up on Nappa. But, again, this made Tien stronger with only one arm than he was with chiaotzu around with two arms, so it's just solidifying the trend.
That's my point, you can't balance family and saving the universe and saving the universe is more important than family because if you didn't then your family wouldn't exist anyway
>What they offer me
>What I need
My gym's group from whatsapp sent it to me
It's actually trying to make a point that "family > material/wordly success", but I see how it can be misconstrued. After all, it is a japanese show. Honor and family are very important in that culture.
Come to think of it, Vegeta, Piccolo, Frieza, Broly, The androids, and Babidi all had some kind of relationship with their fathers - or father figure/creator. And you know what else? They were all villains. Now, this might be a coincidence, but lets dig a little bit deeper.
Gohan, Goku, Trunks (future and regular) and Gotenks all had dads who were either deadbeats, or just regular dead, and none of them turned out to be evil. Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, and most of the gang never had dads - or at least dads that appeared on screen - and they all turned out good.
Here's the kicker though - Goku's brother Raditz defining difference with Goku is that he was the older sibling - and this means that he met, and was exposed to their father, while Goku was not. Raditz became a villain. I'm not gonna jump to any conclusions, but the evidence is as it stands.
I wish gravity training was actually real, it seems to work really fucking well on DBZ. Too bad it would probably fuck up all your tendons, place too much strain on your bones and cardiovascular system, etc...
Krillin is only weak when compared to the alien or half alien characters. Compared to literally every other human other than tien and yamcha he is literally a god. He can fly, he can shoot fucking lasers our of his hands, he can literally fuck anyone up who isn't an alien with plot armor. He is not weak, hes reached the literal natty limit for humans. As a character he only appears to be ap ussy and a bitch because hes the only one of the unimportant characters who doesnt throw his fucking life away for no reason at the drop of a dime. Krillin is the true role model in Dragonball: hes a chill guy who reaches the natty human limit and doesn't let it get to his head. The only problem is that hes a manlet.
I think the human body could probably take at most 1.5-2x gravity for a relatively long period of time without falling apart too quickly. You wouldn't want to stay there very long though, and I don't think it would be very beneficial to strength training.
Vegeta was friezas bitch, after that he only trained because he felt he had to prove himself to goku, and god forbid he has to fight someone tough like broly. He's the definition of manlet-syndrome.
pick one and only one. One-armed push-ups is 100% technique and NOTHING else. My grandmother could churn out a few in a couple of weeks if she trained for it.
>hyperbolic nogf chamber
Upper kek. Damn man, thank you for this.
Dragonball Z till this day still encourages me to push my limits of potential.... and all because of Vegeta. Never has a show portrayed a man who's only goal is to become the best he can be, his training is by far the most ruthless of them all in DBZ, even Goku admits that Vegeta's training is beyond what Goku puts himself through.
Every time I'm about to break down in working out I think of him as a way to motivate myself to push even further. I imagine myself having already reached Super Saiyan this past year.... the next goal is to reach Super Saiyan 2 which is literally twice the muscle mass I have now which will be extremely difficult.... just like in the show.
Don't forget about how big of a bitch Yamcha gets after his initial Bulma stint. Dude gets killed by a damn Saibaman. He was one of the more badass on screen dudes during early dragon ball.
You can watch the show online for free on various websites.
Watch this video to get you excited for what's to come.
but i want to be contrarian about a 20 year old fighting cartoon
>Trying to judge others while browsing reddit
>Lessons for life
>Not what fucked up in the mind all those young teenagers thinking life is for lifting and not lifting is for life as an asset.
It's like you want to maintain the autism
Fuck outta here, the universe is threatened once every few years. Hell, Buu didn't even show up until 7 years after Cell. That nigga is just a bad dad. He isn't interested in family life
I think a good cognate for Buu's Chichi would be Babidi, since he bitches at him, makes him food, and dampens his ability to obtain gains
as soon as babidi is out of the picture he reads the sticky, cuts out of fat buu, then bulks up to super buu
the rule is upheld
>Dragon Ball, creative, impish, and funny in return for being cliche and full of stereotypes.
>Dragon Ball Z, repettetive, gay sperging about "WHAT POWER", a shitload of convenient plot devices like the time chamber to justify gay powersperg, and "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..."
Sure thing anon.
>he follows different rules. But, it follows the same general principle - his kryptonite is also his love interests - little boys
If anybody had a doubt about the autism level of this board, here's the proof.
he was a bandit before he got his ass handed to him
Initially part of sadistic martial arts school thats also involved in assassination. Tien was bound to become a assassin until one guy intervened... pic related
and here's a quote from this guy
>"But you are still within human limits! In order to become a master of martial arts, you must break the wall of humanity! That is the challenge!"
In order to become strong you need to leave humanity behind. Krillin, Yamcha and Tien never fully commited to leaving humanity behind while Goku, Vegeta and piccole never were humans to begin with. Whenever they interacted with other humans though and/or behaved as they do they were at their weakest.
>So, he gets pissed and flies off into space, leaving Bulma and his unborn illegitimate son behind. Seconds later, not only does he become a Super Saiyan, but he becomes even stronger than Goku
No, Vegeta became a Super Saiyan training in the gravity chamber. Which Bulma made for him.
What would be the point of doing 1 armed pushups on a gravity chamber? Just set it to twice the gravity and do normal ones.
By the time Gohan turned 18 Goku WASN'T EVEN THERE for 9 years of his entire life.
>year being dead at king kai's
>year training in space after namek splodes
>7 years dead after cell saga
Not only that, about 15 years later he leaves his family permanently
>gives life to protect family and friends on multiple occasions
>gets bitched at for not being there WHEN HE'S DEAD
Also considering how he's the last hope for the universe and all it might make sense for him to train. Also he needs a successor (Uub).
>adopting a son instead of raising his real one
also, Gohan was supposed to be Goku's successor as protector of the earth, but Chichi and Videl in combination goblin'd all his gains away
Anyone else ever do push-ups in one of these?
his real sons were adults already and he did raise them (unitl he died, y'know) but that's boring in a fighting anime so it was off-screen
even if it is chichi and videl's fault that doesn't change the fact that goku needed someone to succeed him
>I never watched dragonball
You faggots saying Tien isn't human are fucking idiots because it's explained that as part of his training with the crane hermit, he unlocked his third eye (something every human is capable of).
nah, its Bulma all day every day bruh
lets do comparison
>cooks food some of the time
>wants her children to be losers who read books
>owns half the world
>invents time machines, spaceships, dragonball detectors, and other cool shit
>easily identifiable by her blue hair
>and Bulma shirt
>has a pool
goku should have went for that blue vagoo imo but he was too beta to turn his elementary school sweetheart down
>lifted as a kid
>cooks all the time
>entire family is named after underwear (Briefs, Bloomers, Trunks, Bra)
>retarded mom, so questionable genetics
>biggest temper in the entire series
>also biggest bitch in the entire series, too
>But, during the Buu saga when he has TWO boy love interests (Trunks and Gotenks) is when he becomes completely irrelevant.
Literally everyone is laughing at the autism/the weird conclusions drawn from nowhere.
Do you seriously think that people are agreeing with this guy?
nigga look like Roy from Blade Runner.
here, i'll summarize the thread for you
