I have scoliosis as well.

Also I just start shaking like I'm having a seizure when I try to lift even just the bar.

It's never too late brahs, you may not be a 10/10, but honestly nearly no-one can be that way without fucking great genetics or roids, but you can definitely be better than you are now.

Even someone with a 0/10 face, as in serious facial deformities would look better with a 9/10 body than a body on the same level of his face. And none of us have serious facial deformities.

Balding is just a matter of shaving very, very short, muscles are one of those things that are nearly required to be bald and look decent, and 28 is fine, you shouldn't have any hormonal issues at that age.

You can be a sick cunt if you want to be, don't forget.


>>26186496
I nearly always find that lifting weights brings my mood up fucking heaps, there's no time to be a sad cunt while you're lifting, and when you're done you have a good pump, and feel good about yourself for a while. Plus, it's a simple form of self improvement that nearly anyone with no crippling health issues can do.

Really no different then any other temporary high, at least with alcohol you don't have to worry about injuring yourself and you can be a lazy fatass. In fact, lifting weights is detrimental. It will prolong your suffering by adding years on your life away from the sweet release of death

I actually enjoy sparring a lot more than lifting
>>
>>26186876
Yeah, except with alcohol drinking until you're shitfaced every day or two will fuck up your stomach, and your liver. And that's ignoring the stupid shit you do while drunk.

Lifting has absolutely no downsides as long as you don't ego lift, lift safely and increase reasonably, and there's absolutely no risk to it.

If you want to be a lazy alcoholic fatass though, then don't fucking complain about how the normies don't like you, and how it's all your genetics fault you're a failure.

>>
>>26186927
You can get some sort of improvement from it, but it'll be very short term, you won't look excellent. You can definitely look better than average on a bodyweight progression though, I'm sure there's some decent ones floating around.

>>26186935
Any sort of physical activity will do it really, lifting is just one that has a low barrier of entry, anyone can go and lift weights and feel good about themselves for making progress, it takes a while to make noticeable progress in other sports.

If you're past that point and have made good progress though, then I agree, it's a great way to get that same feeling.

basically what everyone else has said. lifting won't get you a girlfriend.

it makes you healthy and can build confidence and makes you feel good. if you lift, lift for you. don't lift for girls.

because it won't get you one. just ask /fit/
>>
>>26187280
If you legitimately don't care about how you look, and it doesn't impact your sense of self at all, then I honestly envy you. But it's not exactly tedious, it's an hour or so a day, a few days a week, and you're not going to be under a couple hundred pounds of weight going "gee, this is boring". You're not going to be thinking much of anything. I guarantee you spend that much time shitposting each day. Energy is a point, it can be tiring, but you do it at the end of a day usually, and you're fine by tomorrow morning, it's not a big deal.
>>
>>26187356
Well the time/benefit ratio is shit. It does take too much energy to maintain muscle mass; I don't want to spend more time and money on food. I don't even want a gf. I'm saying this as a straight guy with naturally high testosterone. Not my thing.

Sounds to me like you're just a skeleton then, there's no such thing as a mesomorph body, there's absolutely no evidence to support that beyond "some people are taller and skinner than others".

>>26189972
Go to /fit/, read the sticky, follow the advice within it. Don't keep posting there though, because the vast majority of posters are under 18 and have been lifting for less than 6 months. Try to stay out of anything that isn't a general or QTDDTOT, those tend to be a bit better.

And go to the gym, no-one will laugh at you as long as you don't start doing stupid shit. People are there to lift, and seeing someone starting out and trying hard is nothing to mock. Everyone starts out somewhere, and most people are either fat or weak to start off.
>>
>>26189972

pretty sure that won't happen

despite the chad nature of a gym, most people are pretty nice, because many of them have been in the same spot as you
>>

Buy some dumbbells and weights. Litrelly that easy. All you need is some some dumbbells and you can do every exercise chads doing at the gym.

>Only thing is I've seen people make fun of SS and saying it's shit that'll give you t-rex legs so I always get confused as to whether or not I should do it

Maybe you should join those threads that anon listed you stupid fuck and listen, SS is a great starting program for beginners. And that's why you also add in accessory lifts with your compound lifts, ab workout, etc to even everything else out. Even without the accessory lifts there's a good chance you won't look like t-rex like you keep hearing.

Stop believing everything you read on that board.

Those people are fucking retarded, SS is a great program, and so is SL. It'll only give you t-rex legs if you neglect accessories and are roiding.

Give the book a download and read it through as well, it's just as required as the sticky itself is. The Stronglifts website is pretty great as well for form basics, though SS is more comprehensive.
>>
>>26190310
>Those people are fucking retarded, SS is a great program, and so is SL. It'll only give you t-rex legs if you neglect accessories and are roiding.

Even without the accessories, i doubt that kid will be lifting anywhere near as much as something like 300lbs to gain those T-REX legs and make everything else lack.

kids who think they'll gain t-rex mode by squatting 90kg are a joke.
>>
>>26190344
Yeah, people really over-estimate how successful they're going to be on SS, it's a good program, but you're not just gonna transform into whatever overnight, if you feel you're developing in an out of balance way, change the program, don't add more to your squats until the rest catches up.

Just chuck in some dips and chinups and you'll be fine.
>>
>>26190610
>>Just chuck in some dips and chinups and you'll be fine.

Pretty much, they are the main ingredient. Pull-ups as it is, is already incorporated into the program which makes you do them i believe at the 3 week mark. Dips you can add yourself or add in things like skull-crushers etc..
>>
>>26189972
I just bought my own shit and workout at home, it's chill and I don't have to worry about being a social autist. The only issue is I don't have people to check my form so I have to be extra diligent. I might start the gym once I move from strength training though.
