>>25626539 No. I lifted for half a year and got some really good results, then got bored. Why does it matter anyway? Everyone dies eventually, at least I'll be enjoying the time I have rather than sweating the fuck out. And that time will repeat for an eternity due to how the universe and time works.
>>25626639 Chicks aren't into your personality you vain fuck. The only thing women care about are their own future prospects, if you aren't their ideal mate/the best they can get you mean nothing to them.
Gained 15 pounds over Fall and into Winter, so now I have to lose it again. This is after losing 102. It doesn't make more attractive because I'm still ugly and a manlet even when lean, at best it just makes me less revolting. I just hate feeling bogged down and slow.
>zero enjoyment from lifting weights >only some enjoyment from progressing with calisthenics >trying to "work out" thrice a week for a while >only enough to keep at it twice a week once the progress is at a point I'm content with >probably will drop to only 1 week >will likely end up losing any gain which was unnoticeable anyway I'm currently ottermode but with puny 12" arms; 5'10 so it doesn't look way too much out of proportions. I doubt the gains will actually happen but I'm planning on keeping it up until I can do certain routines/moves for x amount of times in y reps and eventually progress a bit. At that point I'll simply try to do that stuff once or twice a week. Even if it won't show any clear visual improvement (which is very likely), it'll add a bit to my strength, endurance, and flexibility.
I'd like to just aim for, say, 14" arms for starters, but it would probably take me a year of very active and frequent working out to obtain that, not to mention the frequency required to keep it up or improve even further.
I'm quite content with my ottermode (except arms slightly) and not at all into the gym lifestyle though, so that will be as good as I'll manage to do. As for the "for women" motivation, me simply learning how to approach them other than friendly would make a much bigger difference in a lot less time.
>>25627274 just do as many reps as you can of as much weight you can lift and keep increasing the weight and eating as much as you can afford. Eat like 10 tuna sandwiches, 3 chicken breasts and drink a gallon of fucking milk every single day aside from your other 3 meals.
>>25626639 >chicks are into your personality KEK E K
Women don't give two shits about your personality, everything is based off an attraction basis. If you don't look good, you're out; if you're not tall enough, you're out. Sure, women may not care if you're ripped, but being tall and attractive are two of the hallmarks someone needs to meet before a women will even consider dating them. Women who do give a shit about personality will only take it into consideration after the have determined their potential partner is attractive enough, if they even care.
>>25627462 I'm too much of a poorfag to afford all that, but I do eat 4-5 proper meals a day on average. I don't drink much milk, but eat a fair amount of cheese (not American). due to actual chronic illness I barely gain weight, and fat is a non-issue for me. I can't really bulk and cut because of that, so only slowly gaining lean muscle over time basically. I'm not complaining, it's actually pretty nice as I'm not aiming for a bodybuilder build anyway. I'm working towards 3x10 reps pull-ups and chin-ups consecutively, after which I may add difficulty by moving some horizontally in the movement and/or do slower declines(?) rather than just up the reps much further. Unless I plan on going for more endurance over muscle mass, in which case I can always later alternate between high intensity low reps and lower intensity high reps. I also prefer the lower rep count as it makes the workout sessions take less long, which makes it easier to get off my lazy ass and actually do them.
Increasing weight and eating a lot (and proper food) is a good tip regardless though, one I do in a lesser degree as much as possible.
>>25628386 I'm not of the working out type either... (I have a lot of fat to lose because of binge eating though) But for your health maybe ? Or if you want to do something with your body, like martial arts, gymnastics or whatever amuses you ?
>tfw legit emaciated >so fucking skinny i dont even want to post my picture >cant even see how i would ever be able to eat enough to be able to start bulking up since i probably need to gain like 30 pounds to be a normal weight
why would you be a fucking K U K and work out just so women appreciate you more?
work out for yourself, so you feel better and have more energy and look nice in designer clothes, don't have gyno, and can enjoy the pleasure of challenging and pushing your body and overcoming your weaknesses
I really don't know all that much about the "science" of working out. Eating big to get big, and all that I suppose.
I'm 6'0, about 190 lbs and only do light cardio when I can be assed. My diet is pretty horrid despite being a chef, so I really should get things in check. I feel like I have the right body type to look good in shape, so I want to really push myself to workout. Where to go from here, robots?
>>25631617 Babyslayer is a real human being and a real hero
he blew his haters out of the water so fucking hard
i did my own version of it, but im not 6'3 and i cant bench 3 and a half plates. still bulked up really hard though and now im doing one epic cut insstead of the bulkcutbulkcutbulkcut shit everyone else does
I started lifting at the beginning of the school year. I was extremely motivated back then, but my motivation progressively diminished till none at all when the semester ended. It is a lot of work and I had a hard time progressing, I couldn't keep up with the proposed Strong Lifts program. I wasn't sure if my form was correct, even after viewing a bunch of Youtube videos. Closer to end I basically became afraid of the lifts and I would spend a large amount of time just standing there in the squat rack in between the lifts procrastinating and thinking of what a horrible person I am.
If only I had a friend to lift with to motivate me. I'm considering on actually paying for a trainer, that way I would know that I won't fuck up.
>>25631762 Tell me, what kind of high am I supposed to feel?
I got /fit/ then shit happened and now I'm fat as ever. Trust me it was well worth it, I was the happiest I've been when I was fit. Was getting mired all the time, my facial aesthetics improved too due to the fat loss.
I tried that. Worked out religiously for years but nothing changed. No, instead this year is going to be all about skateboarding again and having fun. Ive been skating nonstop for about a month and lost a ton of weight despite my poor diet and drinking. Fuck it, this is the year i focus on meeting new people and partying.
>>25627285 Dumb fucks, the mirror iverts everything, of course the tatoo looks like the opposite side. If anyone wants to try this, take a picture and blink one eye, then add a mirror and blink the same eye, it will look like a different eye after the mirror.
>>25634622 Here's my dumb plan that just might work.
>work out >become /fit/ >get money for advertising underwear in an ads where they cut out the face >use that money for plastic surgery from the best doctors (and orthodontic work because my teeth are fucked from years of grinding) >become complete model with ads that show my face >eventually become famous attractive actor and make tons of money (my life-long dream finally recognized)
Throughout all of 2015 I lost weight and lifted. I went from almost 300lbs down to 150lbs. I went from never having girls look my way to having total strangers approach me on my way home from work.
But it doesn't work. No matter how much you lift, no matter how much you change your body, no matter how much attention you. You will always have this mentality and you will always see through it. These women don't care about me. They just see what they now assume to be Chad and the moment I show any of my true self they go running.
At the beginning you try to pretend, hoping that eventually you'll go full normie. Maybe if you just fuck a couple more girls. Get a little more drunk. Nope. It doesn't work. In the end you become so disgusted with it all that you isolate yourself completely all over.
I could be out there partying every fucking night and yet all I do is work and come home to cry myself to sleep because it doesn't work. It never changes.
>>25634967 when u lift ur not hindering muscle loss but rather building new muscle while still losing muscle to keep balance. if u go 1500 cal for 6 months while maintaining lifts ull get approx same results as when cutting hard for 3 months while losing a bit on ur lifts and spend next 3 months clean bulkin and gaining back the lost strentgth
>too scared to make the trip to the gym >too scared to set something up with a personal trainer >too scared to eat in front of people at work(currently don't eat at work. I'm sure I'd need as much food as I could get for sick gainz) >too scared to ask mother to buy different food/buy my own food >too scared to actually start lifting because currently a skeleton
>>25636172 Then you need to work on your self esteem. >How? Can you not go to a public park and jog? put some headphones on and enjoy your cardio gains, after that you may have enough confidence to do something else. Why are you afraid?
>>25636172 you're too scared to ask your mum to buy different food? this is a whole 'nother level of autism. what is she going to do? not listen to you? if you're demonstrating that you want to improve yourself, then she'll be more than happy to help if she isn't, don't listen to her trying to put you down, and just ask her to get the food. or get it yourself. you can do it dude.
>>25636391 Pretty sure she's a part of why I'm the way I am. I remember when I was younger I'd do something stupid/embarrassing at home, and we'd have a laugh about it. She'd come home the next day and tell me about how she told all the girls at work what happened and they all laughed. I think that really messed me up as a kid.
>>25636313 Couldn't do it. There's no way I'd be able to bring myself to just go run out in public. I can't even walk right when there's people around. My body doesn't fully listen to what my brain's telling it to do.
>>25636562 My mum is like that. She broadcasts literally everything about me to friends and family. But I've learnt to deal with it by not giving a fuck. I told her to stop, and I think she is, but either way, getting fit is my choice, and it's for me, why would you let anyone else affect your decision?
>>25636562 Also, I promise you no one gives a fuck about anyone else at the gym, they're too busy concentrating on themselves. No one is looking at you. Going to the gym will be really beneficial for you.
