I'm not strong and I haven't read a lot of books but I can see that this board is clearly the best. Teach me your ways, /fitlit/.

currently reading frankenstein. who here the monster? also goal bodies thread
Oh sorry brah, mu mistake. Oh right also, here's my goal body. Coincidentally I also hope to die by being poisoned and burning myself upon a pyre, hopefully perishing peacefully by the former before the a latter of course.
What are the best audio-books to take to the gym?
>/fitlit/ will have trouble with this
/fitlit/ questions thread
/lit/ people trying to get more /fit/, /fit/ people trying to get more /lit/, ask away without fear
What's /lit/'s opinion on audiobooks?
Thinking of starting with that as an auditory learner; I listen to podcasts often. This a bad habit?
/lit/ here. I'm pretty scrawny. I want to get muscular. My biggest problems are trying to find workout into my schedule, how to even design a schedule, and enjoying working out. I like to run and play sports, but I never enjoyed just mindlessly lifting weights or doing push ups.

There's your problem. Working out isn't just a physical experience. If you're doing it right you're connecting to the exercise on a physical, mental, and emotional level. Don't just go through the motions. Visualize your muscles contracting and relaxing. Feel the weight you're working with. Envision your ideal body and every rep as a step towards. During your workout you should be 100% focused on your lifts.
for lit: i have been trying to read crime and punishment for the last few months. it's sitting beside me right now. i made it about 200 pages in and then lost all motivation to continue but it's not that i'm uninterested. do you ever find you get into a slump with your reading? how do you get out of it?
for fit: how do i recover from my jerks more steadily? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeHWXwuxUGQ
C&P has short enough chapters that you could easily read through one chapter each night before bed and whittle away at it. That's only 5-10 pages per night and it's a comfy way to relax before bed. That's actually how I got through it.

Crime and Punishment is a book that you have to read in small, frequent chunks. Treat it just like doing exercise: you need to read it every day or you'll lose everything you worked for. But read for too long and you'll burn out. I usually like to spend a couple hours reading every night, but I'm an avid reader. Aim for a little under an hour maybe, to wrap up the day. Brew yourself a nice cup of tea and sit by a warm lamp so the light is soft on your eyes. Read until you start to feel a little mentally weary, then finish the paragraph/section/chapter and put a bookmark in it. Repeat.
my mistake. linked the wrong video by accident
i am an enthusiastic reader as well, i'm actually an english major (inb4 everything). so it's surprising to me how difficult i'm finding this. the only other book i've ever read that's given me this much trouble is hamsun's hunger
I can't read
Start with something easy and work your way up.
OK I am inspired by the /fit/ merger to start working out for the first time in 3 years. I have an idea of the direction I am going in after reading the /fit/ sticky, but when i took my shirt off I was reminded of my disfiguring back acne. I literally can't take my shirt off. It's too depressing to even look at when i'm alone, much less in public. Do any of you know a way to get rid of this once and for all so I can feel confident about my body and more importantly start my getting big?
Maybe see a doctor or use pic related
