Most runners are cool. Just like some vegans are cool, some criminals are cool..

Literally just spreading the hate to the ones that preach their practice as the most perfect thing to ever happen to the universe.

>If a vegan preaches to you about eating animals is wrong, you should be ashamed, eating animals is unecessary, etc, etc, etc. Those guys are assholes
>if a vegan has made up their own mind and just chills about it, these guys are cool.

Same goes for runners.

you can't die from lack of sleep, when your brain is too tired to go on anymore it'll just unconditionally shut itself down to get some rest and it'll be fine

During the year

Go bed at 23:00
Wake up at 6:00

On summer

Go bed at 02:00
Wake up at 12:00

This means is usually sleep 3 hoursess than my body needs

Shouldn't we agree that waking up early to go job is fucking unnatural and harming?

honestly lift to feel happy. School+internships are draining and lifting has been crazy useful for stress relief. I also like how it made me conform to a lot more a rigid schedule and get more sleep. Definitely undervalued that before. I'm also sitting at 10% bf and play a bunch of soccer so rn I look good shirtless but scrawny wearing one. Plan to take it slow and steady and get bigger.

Oh, okay. But there are triples at 80%. How the hell do you hit those with a max inflated that much?

>>38087046
Thanks for the advice. I hit 380x5 before I started this cycle, but only got 420 when I tested my 1rm. (I got greedy and went for 440 right after and barely missed it, so maybe my max is more like 430).

Yeah. I inflated by 10kg initially. Today was my last day of the first block. I entered a max 10kg higher for the next block and my first session back is 5x3 at 100kg lol

I feel like I can do it. I feel like I got 10kg stronger.
If I don't try I'll never know. Worst case scenario I decrease my max by 5kg

Not the same guy, but I think you're both making some mistakes.

It's not that people are too dumb to decide where to spend their money, but you're deluded if you think every purchasing decision is preceded with thorough research on all available competitors. Advertising may not brainwash people, but publicity certainly has an influence.

I think commie-anon is making a mistake here by assuming that these are all issues inherent to capitalism. A capitalist market can still be regulated.

Interestingly, it's the same issue that causes problems with democracy - the system assumes informed, thought out decisions from the general public. Not a great assumption, all the time.

I have a bio degree and I'm currently a full time assistant toxicologist at the county medical examiner's office, and a regular part time clinical research facilitator at a hospital at the adjacent hospital.

It's possible to land jobs without a master's, but you need the connections. I am looking into a Master's of Medicolegal Death Investigation from Syracuse before applying to medical schools, though.
