Is there any wonder obesity levels are increasing in children at an alarming rate when they don't have access to any /fit/ approved cartoons anymore
>mfw kids aren't learning about fitness, morality, respect, friendship, and integrity from Dragonball Z
Fuck this gay Earth
That's why they rebooted and made DB Kai and Super.
I didn't watch it either, it was only on pay tv. I was a fairly active child, but I was also always a fat child.
I blame it on my lack of access to dragonball related entertainment.
Not my obesefag appetite, that surely had nothing to do with it
goku vs krillin best fight and its not even in Z
Dragon Ball > Dragon Ball Z
I remember renting the last episodes of the Frieza Saga on VHS from Hollywood Video. It was glorious senpai... I miss the early 2000s
You know most kids can watch Dragonball and other /fit/ approved shows on the internet. What 8 year old doesn't know how to use the internet nowadays? Then all they have to is get a Chruchyroll/funimation/etc subscription and that's it.
Probably gonna watch Fairy Tail instead though.
maybe they shouldn't be inside all day watching cartoons? They need to be outside playing with friends and playing team sports.
Like most kids, I grew up with a healthy balance of the two. I would play sports after school and watch TV when I got home.
Kids need encouragement from their parents and not cartoons to be physically active.
>tfw i want to like db super
>art and animation has made a significant drop
Dbz was actually the reason I got into lifting in the first place, was lifting for school as early as 13. I did A LOT of retarded things when I was doing stuff outside of athletics, had to learn a lot on my own. One of which was walking up and down stairs with a backpack loaded with plates ( trying to emulate the weighted turtle shells from dragonball...lulz ). Wore 20lb ankle weights under my pants to school too, trying to be like Piccolo...
It was all pretty stupid, but the few non-retarded things I did build a good base for myself once I actually knew what the fuck I was doing.
They need to be training from child
Shit was so epic man, Goku is a role model the kiddos are missing out on in this generation...now they got bieber
My biggest regret was not taking stretching seriously growing up. I played football from middle school all the way up college and I worked hard on the weight room, but I would usually just warm up and lift and never stretch before or afterwards.
I do olympic lifting now but it's difficult because I have horrible ankle and hip mobility
I know those feels, only we never lifted weights in school. If you tried to get a kid to lift weights in school in ausfalia, you'd have the angry mother's brigade down there complaining about 'stunt their growth' 'too dangerous' 'you're supposed to expand their minds, not their biceps'.
I always had garbage mobility even as a child. I recall at age 6 my friend sitting on the floor japanese style with his legs under him, so I tried and couldn't do it because it hurt my hips and knees too much. I could sit in full lotus position at that time though, which I can't do now.
I've spent the last few years trying to get competent at weightlifting. I've lost track of how many times I've had to go back to square one after recognising a new mobility problem that's holding me back. My hips and knees have improved a lot, but ankles are bitches. Every training sessions these days involves me doing a shitload of banded ankle stretches and hating my life.
>tfe rewatching one piece
>the funimation dub is fantastic
I am crying at this very moment.
this is my gym motivation
Keep working hard bro, i'm in the same boat.
Just make stretching a habit. I've been doing it a lot for the past year. I either stretch for 45 min before or after I work out and do yoga on off days. I will basically stretch every muscle in my leg. Just youtube or google the best ankle.hip/leg stretches.
Are you kidding the animation has gotten better. The dynamic camera moves and rotations are crazy hard for them to draw. Imagine drawing goku, now imagine drawing him punching our frieza from like 30 different angles.
okay, fair point. maybe not the animation but the anime is very inconsistent with its quality. you are delusional if you don't believe that.
here's how things have been going so far
>fucking retarded episode 5 animation/art
>shit animation during the near-climax of the return of frieza arc
im really hoping they find a way to fix this, i still watch the episodes every week cause i like dragonball as a franchise but this inconsistency is annoying. the manga is nice though
In elementary school we used to talk about how many push ups we had to do before we went super Saiyan mode. And I fucking stopped eating graham crackers bears to be more like goku
It kinda is tho...
And what I mean is that Hitler is the poster child of Germany. Don't like it; don't try conquering half the fucking world only to get wrecked hard by the motherfucking US of A.
Deal with it.
>Kids are watching Rick and Morty
>Based Sir is one of their illustrators
I don't know how it gets more /fit/ than that, anon.
Not him, but I've been watching JJBA on there, a lot better than most places because it's actually 720
I'm not about to waste my time or disc space on a torrent when I can stream without buffering
DBZ is pure shit without the nostalgia value though. Try watching a real anime.
>tfw you kind of want to be a gym teacher but realize it will probably break you
I'm in this weird spot where in general I hate kids but seeing all of these tiny fatties doomed before they even really have a choice in the matter is heartbreaking.
>friends want me to give them lessons/coach sessions
I'd love to but I'm also worried I'd get too into it
>ALL the way down to your chest on a press, man
>The bar stays in a STRAIGHT line on a squat, man, STRAIGHT
>I WANT THOSE PUSHUPS DONE WITH SOME FUCKING PASSION
It actually had higher ratings than DBZ when they were running at the same time.
I don't feel a need to say one was better than the other though, they're both some of my favorite childhood shows
>that feel when never get to see much of the female saiyans
>it's canon that they're unable to go super
