You go back in time to the day before your first time at the gym. What do you tell your past self?
Just do compound barbell lifts with linear progression. Do 3x5 with last set to loss of form.
Track calories and actually eat more don't just drink a protein shake every day and think that is enough
Stop fucking around with those gay-ass machines
never ever skip a workout for any fucking reason and stick to a fucking program
You're taking the first step on a better life. Stick with it m8.
Also, work on your forearms more.
>What do you tell your past self?
Cut right now you piece of shit, you'll thank yourself later.
> not even offering some solution beyond the requisite "d-don't give up! D:"
You can't offer a general solution to a particular problem. Everyone has their own reasons for considering suicide.
Stop doing Starting Strength after 8 months. Move on to 5/3/1.
Do fucking power cleans.
5 minutes of cardio warm up make a huge difference in the way you feel during your lifts, in a good way.
Do 15 minutes of rowing machine or stationary bike after you finish your lifts.
