Why do we lift, /fit/? I need to be reminded of the reasons to go on in this world. So if you have any motivational stuff, post them. They will be greatly appreciated.
I exercise for health. I do cardio and HIIT to have more energy, vitality, and generally feel better.
I also remind myself that civilization is only held together by a thread, and it could all come crumbling down in an instant.
I lift and do HIIT so that I can be a survivor if and when the world goes to hell.
I also lift for strength, so that I might be able to crush those who would try to harm me or my family.
Truthfully, there are infinite reasons why I am fit. But those are the high points.
Normally if you were already in shape it would depend if the cold was above or below the neck.
But since you're in awful shape I'm going to suggest that you rest until you're 100% healthy.
I would recommend reading the sticky and really get prepared to make some changes in life.
I lift for my own fabricated ideation of honor and integrity. Just as Zyzz did, I wanted to create a persona, an 'aura', he said that Zyzz wasn't him or a person, it was a lifestyle, an idea.
With lifting paired with various other things beneficial in life, it holds confidence and prosperity. Create an image for yourself, create a lifestyle where you are truly a free man.
People will surely follow your ideals once you build your foundation up. Be too busy working on your own grass to see if anybody else's is greener.
You got this, buddy.
Put on your wolf coat, Ulfhednar.
I can post a few cheesy pics that sort of help me doing shit. If you ignore how forced it sounds, you can see the underlying thought and it can be great.
Think about an image, I personally have more respect for me with a large, muscular frame on first appearances. You don't want to be a weak motherfucker, you want to seize control due to your size.
Craig always has to get posted I guess
I get motivation everytime bicycling through uni to get to the gym.
First I go by the incredibly attractive lawyers, female engineers and economists.
Then I go by the philosophical area, where the tumblrs, the HAES and fucking teachers are and I see those fat hamwhales and I get fueled to go SSJ4 and deadlift everything.
This was my wallpaper for a while, when I used to lift for half a year. I gave up because I was a pussy. I think I should put this wallpaper back on.
I have a David Fincher wallpaper
I lift for him
None of these fucking cheesy pictures and motivational quotes will work. They will make you "feel good", but that won't do shit. It's just a case of small wins over and over again, time after time until you work your way up to it. Discipline motherfucker, not motivation.
>Fucked up my cut, too much of a deficit
>Can't properly Power Clean form
>Barely able to do Military Press
Fuck me /fit/, I feel like a jackass. At least I managed to properly adjust my cut deficit and realize it was a dumb ass idea for what I was doing.
To kill the men that want to end me.
this is litteraly the best one at the moment
contributing for that epicness
Manlets, every last one of you
>I do cardio and HIIT to have more energy, vitality, and generally feel better.
don't know about HIIT but cardio has definitely made me feel much better on a daily basis and that's just from one month
Also makes drinking water alot easier, I'm not bitching about muh flavor when I'm legit thirsty and I drink prob more than a gallon throughout the day
Yeah, but what makes you want to survive. whats the fucking point, especially if the world is on fire and everyone has gone mad. I think thats more what OP is looking for.
There is no point. We have to give the world purpose, we have to find the meaning.
I'm tired of fucking looking.
scared shitless of his own testosterone...
There is no point, go have fun.
For me fun demands fit body.
6'7 masterrace, this is what the average Dutch girl looks like
Just typed this in another thread that got deleted before I finished it
1,70cm 67kg manlet OP that doesn't want to lift, I hope this finds the way to you
So you'd rather stay an underachiever? Somewhen the time will come, where you realize that it is too late for you to change, you get eat up by your habits, your mediocrity, your worthlessness. You stand up in the morning, working at a job you hate, making just enough money to think that you don't have to worry, come home to your average wife with your underachieving kids and live the same life millions of people do. But one day this won't be enough for you anymore, but you will think to yourself, that it is too late now.
Starting to lift now won't change most of this. You'll still hate your job, you won't get a better wife or children. People still won't notice you when you go buy groceries, you won't drown in qt's and you won't get any friends. But at the end of the day, you won't hate yourself when you go to bed. You lay there and you just broke a personal record, not for anyone, but for you. And you will the only person that will be proud of you and you will fall asleep with a smile, because once in your life you made a decision, you worked for a long term goal that you will never reach, yet you won't give up, never.
Start lifting anon, make yourself proud.

A few years back, I was riding the bus, going home. It was evening, and the bus was driving through one of the many suburbs my country has. As I looked at the houses flying past, I saw the blue glow of a television behind pretty much every window. It just screamed mediocrity and complacence, a life that consists of waking up, bringing the kids to a mediocre school, sitting behind a desk for 8 hours, and then go home and have dinner while listening to your wife telling you about the uneventful day she had. A life like that sounded like a nightmare to me.
From that moment on, I've been determined to not let that become the life I'm going to be living when I'm older.

No greater motivator than reminding myself that Republicunts actually have a measurable influence on my daily life.
Because Nietzche told me i will find a reason why i was born.
>You can't just wander around a hospital visiting random patients
You have to fill out paperwork and junk first, but you absolutely can visit strangers at a hospital. It's volunteer work, it raises the spirits of the patients and it's a very respectable thing to do (as long as you don't let it slip that you're exploiting their illness to boost your gainz).
I want to be a better person, so I can get a better girlfriend.
>I lift and do HIIT so that I can be a survivor if and when the world goes to hell.
Pretty much this, as well as respect from men. Fuck bitches.
I lift because it makes up for my lack of talent in other fields.
No artistic talent, couldn't draw if i had a gun pointed at me
Musical hearing is absolute shit
Only good with numbers and physics
Being /fit/ is one thing, not being a dick is another
Your picture a shit
The guys from the islamic state feel like they're making the world better.
They believe once everyone has joined the khalif we can live in peace and prosperity without war, crime and other nasty shit. They decapitate and burn people alive right now just so we give in faster and they don't have to do it anymore.
Why don't you make a pic of them instead for motivation?
Not saying it's a religion thing but i am saying i dislike that picture.
I ain't time to use MS paint and 'Make better' is not an objective term (although by no measure can you justify what religion of peace is up to)
I volunteer, support others and do my bit for the advancement of humanity so I'm fine with my interpretation

I'm attempting to OHP 130lbs in half an hour. Never lifted that weight. Wish me luck. I won't let you down /fit/
yoga, planche, acrobatics class? lots of self discipline and having fun training. Your guess is as good as mine.
Is this true?
Anyway training smart is always the best way. So many people I see in the gym who have terrible form or are lifting too much weight just because they think that's what they have to do.
If they just took the time to do it properly they'd get hench as fuck.
She had her legs and hands amputated due to an infection.
Basically came down to a big malpractice settlement.
She is still making her own money though.
She was a 97% match on Okcupid and we clicked instantly. Honestly I was way past the point of never expecting to find someone.
> mfw we're all gonna make it
cmon bro so close to that delicious 1plaet!!!!!
do it for these mofos <<< cleaning up their zeppelin
pretty much this.
>that feel when I hurt my lower back a bit on monday and won't be able to lift for a week, maybe two
>that feel when I have nothing else to do and cutting becomes 10x harder because I have no motivation to when I'm not working out
I really like this poem, but somehow seeing it juxtaposed with all this color and Clash-of-Clans-like imagery sort of cheapens it in my eyes. It's weird because there's this one comic from Zen Pencils that I really like as well (the one about Robert Goddard). But seeing this is just weird and makes me feel uncomfortable.
this was back during a time when "motivation" was mostly rationed out somewhat ironically, yet still had the effect of motivating the shit out of you anyway no matter how simple it was. now that 4chan has been infested by normies (even more than years before), there's just no way to keep the little quality present in check.
the fuck is this bullshit? the only other version of this "motivation" that I've ever seen was another screenshot in windows that also showed the web browser, only in that one, the anon who took it was using Windows Classic theme instead of Aero if I'm not mistaken. Why don't people crop this thing?
