How's the fitness goals coming along, lads?


Here is a bowl of three servings of FAGE yogurt with two scoops of protein powder in it. I usually only use one scoop (I'm probably only absorbing about half of the protein I'm eating here anyway according to recent advances in bro science) but I just kind of wanted to experiment because I want to ditch this shitty bloat lord grocery store protein asap anyway.

Whoops (fuggin' size limit)



looks vile



More like FAG yogurt!

Welcome to the world of 'meal prep'.



It was. You know how excited you may have been as a kid to try the cake batter off of the whisk? Imagine eating a straight up pound of it. That's basically the consistency, texture and flavor except naturally it had that slightly medicinal protein aftertaste. Never again lol

One scoop on the other hand actually tastes pretty good and has a note pudding-like consistency. Still, the protein I have right now that I impulse bought from the grocery store is complete shit and I probably should have just tossed it in the garbage when I got home and conpares it to the venerated brands.




I used to get Chobani but FAGE does have slightly better macros. Plus it's got 6 servings to Chobani's 5 heh



I was doing a full body workout with 1 set for each exercise, about every 5 days. Then I did a bro split session where I did 3 sets of every exercise for back, biceps etc. And I've been sore for literally a WEEK. This didn't happen when I was 20 (10yrs ago).

Tomorrow I'm gonna get up early to surf big waves. Have 2 shots coffee on the drive there. Then get home, shower and do a workout (weights). Very exciting.



>full body workout
>1 set

No wonder you were sore af when you increased the set number, that was the first time you were really working out! There's a reason you want to do 3-5 sets you dingus!


legitimately jelly, I don't live anywhere where I can do something like that. Living near a beach would be HECKIN' based



I have virtually no gains to make, thats why I usually stick to full body workouts with one set.



They've done studies on protein absorption and various large bodybuilders who require over grams of protein a day are able to gain muscle mass at healthy rates eating only two meals a day, directly implying their bodies are absorbing 50+ grams of protein in a single sitting.

As far as I'm aware the common knowledge of "35 grams of protein in one sitting for a 175 pound man" actually has no science or studies behind it.

No one knows how much protein we can actually absorb.

>decide to do front squats instead of normal squats for the first time in about six months

>bar slides too far down my arms once, muscle it back into place
>spine feels sore as fuck from doing this and starts hurting pretty bad if I stand up for too long
>haven't lifted in almost three weeks due to muh spine

One single fucking error and I'm down. Gains can be taken so easily.



Sounds awful. Traditional barbell deadlifts and squats are legitimately dangerous exercises, tbh I think people that aren't serious powerlifters probably ought to look for safer alternatives. I use my 55lb dumbbells for squats which keeps a bar tf away from my spine. I feel like a hex bar would be a safer alternative to a barbell for deadlifts but I don't know, I think the motion itself is pretty rough.

Nice. I've been trying to go swimming every day at the beach. Breddy Gus workout with the waves. Yesterday was particularly brutal/fun because there was a big thunderstorm coming in.

Damn, I hope I can get to my natty limit too. I think my running (18miles a week) will help but I have to eat more good sh*t and less bad sh*t if I want real lean gains heh

i took the intermittent fasting pill
then went the one-meal-a-day route
and eventually full fasting
to do like 3-4 days of fastings per week

that plus exercising at home almost daily (bodyweight exercises and light lifting) have allowed me to lose a lot of fat i had been amassing since before lockdown



>3-4 days a week of full fasting

That's pretty good. When I'd taken the fast pill I think I managed two days a week but even that had proven to be considerably difficult



File: 1598658084040.jpg (28.29 KB, 500x375, 1318753149117.jpg)

not gonna lie bro
i am really miserable during those days. ima talking like around 100hours with no food. 3-4 striahgt days with only the occasional glass of water

some of these days, i jist stay literally the entire day in bed because i just dont have motivation/energy

the first time i did this, i broke the fast with a large pizza, but my stomach was so cucked it was killing me during the night, and i had to spend the entire night in fetal position

i do recognizxe this is not healthy on the long run, so im eating again, but tryina keep in low cal; 1 meal per day



What the fuck are you doing

Just eat huel or something w/healthy 24 hours intermittent fasting in between if unhealthy food bothers you that much



File: 1598667078714.jpg (93.93 KB, 443x547, 1421806887433.jpg)

whats huel
also, bro idgaf about unhealthy food. i eath less than 1200cal per day
i was just saying that they days when im on extended fasts i feel terrible



Why do you feel the need to do extended fasting

Are you anorexic or smth



File: 1598668869551.png (210.47 KB, 1679x588, 43243434334.PNG)

Also huel is pic rel

Healthiest shit you can eat but i recommend supplement with meat (especially fish and shit)



Yeah Huel is basically Soylent without the soy. It's the same general concept but you're not freebasing estrogen heh



File: 1598677096684.jpg (197.52 KB, 798x802, nigger.jpg)

It's various ingredients in powderized form solluble in water but that's about all it shares in common w/soylent

It has much more nutrients too and is basically one of the most nutrient-complete drinkable meals available, see pic

Soylent is actually unhealthy af and has tons of bad shit in it, whereas Huel doesn't

Think i read somewhere that soylent also uses GMO soy whereas huel doesnt



I've heard fasting for a few days at a time can help treat if not cure cancer so maybe anon is worried about the possibility that he has a tumor or something. I can't really think of any other reason to do it except maybe a seriously admirable attempt at weight loss-but you don't really need to fast that hard to do that I don't think.

>some of these days, i jist stay literally the entire day in bed because i just dont have motivation/energy

Fuck, I eat plenty but I have that same problem. I think I just need to eat MOAR because of how much cardio I've been doing lately.



You are probably getting yourself into ketosis on those fasting days if you didn't know this already. Something to think about.



File: 1598729476945.jpg (132.05 KB, 995x732, 1397094524568.jpg)

im not anorexic, but i am now able to understand how people become anorexic.

i kept doing it as an exercise of will. mind over matter. at first, the thought of going just 1 day without food seemed inane. eventually you just keep going

i try to keep it at 4 days tops - after that, longer fasts require that you take supplements because your body is getting no energy/nutrients and thats how u end up ded lol

got it. a meal replacement shake.. nah, i prefer real foods
like restrict meals for a few days, then go all-in on the "cheat days".. last night I had a huge burger

nah. cancer isnt one of my concerns.it was mostly a way to lose fat (im not even fat tho tbh. i think i was like 155lbs when i started)
yea, this is true - and one of the reasons i do consecutive fasting days, instead of 1-on/1-off, or other alternatives



File: 1598729857741.jpg (12.02 KB, 468x357, mrtastee.JPG)

dont wanna seem too pushy on fasting. im aware that is might seem too extreme
so, a good one to consider is intermitent fasting. the most common is "16/8", ie. fast for 16 hours, and eat during the remaining 8. keep in mind that you might spend most of those 16 fasting hours during your night sleep.. so it can be as easy as just skipping breakfast after you wake up

>full fasting

as i said, way more extreme. and you shouldnt do it too long if you have health issues
here's a good video that shows the benefits for the body:
in case you dont wanna watch it, here they are:

- There's a big insulin spike when you a high carb meal
- 12 hrs of fasting - Growth hormone kicks in
- 13-15 hrs of fasting - Burning energy from fat, ketones start to go up
- 17 hrs of fasting - Autophagy, Self-detox
- 24 hrs of fasting - Stem cell production
- 24 hrs of fasting - Intestinal stem cells are starting to regenerate
- 24 hrs of fasting - More BDNF which is Brain fertilizer
- 24 hrs of fasting - Inflammation starts to go down
- 36-48 hrs of fasting - Good for weight loss resistant, Gaba production
- 36-48 hrs of fasting - Neurons are regenerating
- 72 hrs of fasting - Stem cell production,
- 72 hrs of fasting - Boost your immune system
- Fasting recalibrates dopamine receptor sites



>i prefer real foods

Dude it literally IS real food

There is nothing synthetic about it, it's all actual ingredients

What you mean is that you prefer SOLID food over drinkable meals, which is to each their own i guess

If you hate cooking liek me and just want convenience den nuffin beats deez drinkable meal shakes heh

you are right. that's what i meant
i enjoy cooking, so it's all good

do you get full after them? i feel i would just pee and get cravings again lol

>do you get full after them? i feel i would just pee and get cravings again lol

It takes some adjusting but your body instantly recognizes it as food and knows what to do with it

I find that unlike fatty solid foods this shit goes much easier on me, i also have an autoimmune condition so that prolly plays into dat. There's a brief period where you feel very full for about 10-20m or so right after the last gulp but after that you feel somber, practically no food coma or heavy digestive action to speak of at all compared to solid foods for me.

It does cause some occasional rumbling/stomach noise for some reason though, maybe i should try the gluten-free version or smth

I've seen people do shit like cookies aswell heh

Heh I fasted two days this week, once for 24 hours the other for 21 hours. I think I'll try it again tomorrow, see if I can push it to 36. Then Wednesday I'll resume exercising because that should be long enough to recover from my back injury.



>only 21

Dis b relevant



I'm forced to go on a low-fat, low-acid diet, because I have severe acid reflux that makes it hard for me to swallow food sometimes.

I'll be going soon. Pretty sure it's just acid, because no problems occur if I take antacids. Might turn into something worse if I ignore it though.

Finally tried this sh*t and I'm happy to report that it's based af. Mixed with greek yogurt it literally tastes like a strawberry pudding and has none of that chalky medicinal aftertaste all the chocolate flavors I've tried have. It's sweet but not sickeningly so. Really glad I loaded up on this shit while it was on sale-it was a pretty big risk because I bought three of them without knowing any better. It's a nice yellow powder that turns pink like a friend and will make a great desert moving forward.

Highly recommended for any of my sedentary bros; you can do just about any mundane activity-including gaming or sh*tposting-that doesn't take intense concentration while pumping. I ran my doggy four miles today but I ate like shit in the morning so I've been going to town on this thing all day to try and make up for it heh

It's an elliptical. It's kind of a similar motion to a bike. Cardio heh



Cardio doesnt build muscles directle iirc rite






Once more i shall bump this



Once I plateau on deadlifts (soon) I will start either daily cycling and/or swimming. I'm curious to see what it will feel like. I always feel really good after cardio. I have an exercise bike it's great. I listen to music or sometimes think about life stuff or work while doing it. Though it's usually pretty hard to think as I go at a light to moderate pace.

>Though it's usually pretty hard to think as I go at a light to moderate pace.

That's the one downside of this thing >>16556. I can consoom while using it but really studying, reading or working is just about impossible afaik. I wonder if I could practice it but I kind of doubt it-you're just dividing your attention one way or another and there's no getting around that.



Do you watch films on it? I can't on my thing. Unless perhaps I bike at a really low intensity.



I kind of watched "Wolf Children" last night but I was kind of distracted by other things too. I'd say I can, maybe not while going full bore but I don't really think this thing was made for that anyway-using it I set more of a distance-runner's pace or even a little slower.

I still kind of have a boomer diet because I've been living with my personal boomers lately. I willl say that overall I'm probably more healthy in the conventional sense than I've ever been in my life though

>run 18 miles a week in the sun

>starting to lift again

I think you might be onto something with the diet in general though. I doubt eating a single burger and a few fries from McD's is hurting me too much-I probably just need to eat MORE (relatively) clean calories and stop drinking soda (I've been better about it ever since getting a water pitcher, I think the most appealing thing about the soda was how cold it was). Come to think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if my tendency to crash on my days off could be brought about by caffeine withdrawals. As I've done better at avoiding it I've become more and more lethargic, it seems.



Caffeine is a helluva drug



cardio increases endurance and improves blood flow and shieet but you wont probably get visible resluts from cardio alone.
also, I want to remind you to eat more watermelons and nuts.

We don't know the context in which these pictures were posted. Is the guy on the left a known celebrity/model for example? Many of the posts appearing under the guy on the right's picture appear to be his own.

Guy on the left is in absolutely phenomenal shape-easily in the top 10% of people on the planet, the guy on the right is also in great shape; he is big but he has visibly thinning hair and a very shitty beard-also his picture sucks in comparison. Women are suckers/retards for "nature" scenes and shit like that and his fucking butt is sticking out too (faggot!), presentation matters.



Losing 13 percent of your weight could lead to big improvements in your health

If you’re obese, losing just 5 percent of your weight starts you on the path to better health, but new research finds that losing 13 percent of your weight may make a good-size dent in your chances of developing several unhealthy conditions. For instance, the odds of developing Type 2 diabetes were at least 42 percent lower among obese people who lost that much weight than for those who did not lose weight, according to a report from the European and International Congress on Obesity.

The research was based on eight years of data on 552,953 middle-aged adults who were obese and intentionally lost weight (meaning their weight loss did not occur because of an illness). Besides the diabetes effect, losing 13 percent of their weight also made people 25 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure or sleep apnea, and it correlated to a 22 percent risk reduction for high cholesterol and a 20 percent lower risk for osteoarthritis.

i saw an ad for one of those the other day, and i was like "these niggas stole my idea"
i have always felt something like that (ie. pushes your shoulders back, and straightens your back) is what i need to fix my posture. my back hurts. esp. lower back, and i crack it a lot during the day
i have bad posture when i sit smh (sit on my lower back, instead of on my ass - idk if that makes sense for you)
and when i stand up i guess i just lower my shoulders instead of standing up striahgt pumping my chest out n shit



Go to a chiropractor bro. I fucked my back up in late 2017 and I could hardly walk, it was painful to get out of my car even. I waited several months, could have been as many as four, and it just didn't seem to be getting better on its own. I started seeing a chiropractor and within a month or two from that (one session a week) I was cured thanks to this BASED skeltal "pseudo-science". The sessions were $70 each so yeah, I spent a few hundred bucks, but if I would have went to the doctor they would have literally prescribed some seriously expensive surgery or dr*gs I'm sure.



Wow I fucked up my back l5s1 hernia and was pretty much in the same situation. I did go to a spinal doctor but I think they thought I wanted drugs he just seemed very disinterested. Went to a massage guy not even a chiropractor and literally fixed me up without surger in like 2 months of weekly massages. They hurt like a motherfucker but really changed me



lol. good that you admit it's pseudo science, but your experience -and anon's post below yours- sound really positive
lol, theres a place close to where i live that has a spa thing in the back, and they give massages.. but the chick was kinda hot so im afraid i'd just ask her for a happy ending lol

>There is no conclusive evidence that chiropractic is effective for the treatment of any medical condition
>Research published by chiropractors is distinctly biased.
>Chiropractors, especially in America, have a reputation for unnecessarily treating patients.[51] In many circumstances the focus seems to be put on economics instead of health care.
>Some chiropractors oppose vaccination and water fluoridation, which are common public health practices
>For most of its existence, chiropractic has battled with mainstream medicine, sustained by antiscientific and pseudoscientific ideas such as subluxation.
>Collectively, systematic reviews have not demonstrated that spinal manipulation, the main treatment method employed by chiropractors, is effective for any medical condition

I wonder if this fud has anything to do with the fact I don't have $40,000 worth of metal rivets shunted into my vertebrae and am not injecting an expensive painkiller solution into my urethra every night at a (((doctor)))'s behest-all because chiropractors evaded the rest of the medical industry's licensure and regulation apparatus heh.

>, but your experience -and anon's post below yours- sound really positive
bruh, i'm the guy below him and it utterly destroyed my respect for medicine. it was literallly a sports rehabilitiation center and the guy specialized in spinal surgery. i remmeber he looked like michael mcdonald from madtv with some alligator boots and was like "oh well what do YOU want to do, you want surgery, phsycial therapy, maybe wait it out and in my head i was like, i'm here for YOUR opinion and advice jackass'''. He had my MRI's too, even I could tell the disk was slipped.

They made me take a piss test(which is why i'm sure they thought i was just there for drugs) and then later sent me a bill for $1800 that i didn't pay obviously.

Meanwhile the guy i went to worked out of his shack. i would go like wednesday nights after my job during the summer and while at first i thought this was pain for no reason after awhile it started really working. the pain subsided and slowly i could walk straight again. i think i paid him a total of like MAYBE $500 but it's been about 4 years since that time and quite honestly i'm never going back to a doctor again probably a chiropractor tho to check me out but i'm just so nervous about somehow undoing the guys fixing my back so i havent.

I think it absolutely has everything to do with it. My question though, at least for slipped discs/herniated discs, is why WOULDN'T chiropactry work? Your nerve is pinched becuase of a slipped disc, it's literlaly a mechanical issue so why wouldn't extensive bone popping put it back into place?

>pseudo science

they say the same thing about betty edwards' ramblings in drawing on the right side of the brain. but go through that book and tell me she does'nt make perfect sense and your drawing, if it was amateurish and kiddylike as most peoples', isn't transformed into at least something works



Some literally who in the /ic/ sticky says that it's pseudoscience and the npcs spill out into the board repeating it. I'm convinced that what she says is 100% correct, and the idea of reorienting an image a beginner is to draw in a way that their verbal/logical brain can't identify it as easily is genius. Obviously ones' hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity will not start out anywhere near sufficient so their work will still look like shit but the idea is there and once they unlock it they're well on their way.



I think the book is shit, and people are basically right when they say there's no reason to progress beyond the first lesson. It has nothing to do with unlocking the other side of your brain or whatever. It's just that as a beginner artist you don't even have a concept of drawing in 3D.



File: 1601683544756.jpg (109.91 KB, 1275x1648, Draw this, KIKE!.jpg)

I actually agree you don't need more than the first couple of lessons. I was just defending the overall idea behind the book. I only used the first couple of lessons myself because she wants you to use gay rulers and stuff as the book goes on so I peaced out-but the opening lecture and the first couple of lessons are probably the most expedient means for someone whose never drawn before to unlock their ability-not to discern not 3D shapes in drawing which I'm pretty sure she barely touches on-but negative/positive space, spatial relationships, plumb lines and other methods of two dimensional measurement.

Then you could just as easily tell someone, "Hey, try drawing this picture upside-down, REDART!", and then nobody would be troubled by gay viewfinder shit! As someone who began drawing in their early 20s I can't even remember if that book helped TBH, or any book recommendation for that matter. I feel like a lot of the same concepts are repackaged and explained better on youtube.
