Alright, /fit/, it's /b/ visiting here, you used to be the health board and I don't know who else to turn to.

I've been sick since last saturday or february 21st and today is sunday february 28th going on monday march 1st.

The syptoms are coughing, not really a lot of sneezing anymore, not really a lot of tiredness or body aches anymore, mucus in the mouth and nose, wet nose, runny nose, stuffy nose, dry lips, dry mouth, dry throat, never goes away.

I tried vegetable juice, orange juice, water, vitamin c packets, alca seltzer plus, dayquil red pills, washing my hands, not touching stuff without using my shirt, coughing in tissues, focusing on it, ignoring it, and even trying to wear a surgical face mask so I don't get more sick or others sick and I'm still sick.

What should I do?

Basically it's politics+geography. Most of the tested non-IPF feds are in america. If not all.

Someone with a few people backing him doesnt like a certain official or something, creates his own fed.
Or USAPL doesn't exist in a certain place, so they make their own fed instead of the hassle of becoming IPF officials

2. Depends on how advanced you are as a lifter. If you havent been lifting for 2+ years than it's probably not worth it.
3.VERY VERY FAR. The majority of strength athletes don't gain or lose weight very quickly and often hover around the same weight for long periods of time.

4. The IPF treats powerlifting like a sport, a lot of other feds treat it as a sideshow, or a monster truck rally.

Everyone does, but the vast majority of people don't train them enough. Even people who have a "forearm day" at the gym don't train them enough.

People with manual labour jobs, and strongmen, are the only people who train them enough.

/SIG/ Self Improvement General.

How have you improved yourself this week/month/year? Lifting isn't life, a well-balanced human being is productive, has hobbies, pushes him/herself to succeed, is charismatic, and strives to live the best life they can. Share your successes, failures, methods, and everything in between.

It can be too overwhelming at first, so take baby steps, but START and move forward.

Things I recommend:
-Use a calendar, like google calendar. Hours and shit for things YOU WILL DO.
-Start having ‘to-do’ lists. I use google Keep and it works pretty nice.
-Have a productivity Framework that is flexible. I use the Getting things done. Works pretty nice
-Learn to focus. Turn off everything else.
-Do routines for things you should do periodically. Chores, laundry, cleaning.
-Identify and Eliminate conflicts within yourself. I’ll detail this on a post further down.
-Focus on identifying the time wasters in your life and eliminate them.
-Focus on the essentials. Don’t grasp too much

i listened to an audiobook of how to win friends and influence people. i finished maybe a week ago.

i wasn't impressed or surprised with most of it.

it all sounded helpful for dealing in businessy settings - with people you will never talk to again.

but as a student day-to-day i don't think anything covered in the book can really help me, say, meet girls or people at parties or anything relevant to me.

honestly most of the lessons were very straight forward.

What is the max bench/squat/dead I can expect to achieve while staying natty?
>>
Depends how fat you wanna get.

But generally, 600lb deadlift, 500lb squat, 350lb bench is what you are looking at with a good 5+ years of training under your natural belt. Some may be higher or lower based on bodily proportions.
>>
>>31179419

Wow, really? Does that mean if I start roiding, I can get an 700lb squat? or a 900lb deadlift?

I think 350 bench is low. I'm hitting close to 325 right now and I feel like I have a much higher ceiling

Hey /fit/izens, anyone have any suggestions for a light workout routine at work? My job consists of 90% downtime and i spend roughly 9 hours a day sitting on my ass browsing 4chan. I have a cordless phone and walkie-talkie so I can leave my desk, just have to stay in the building. I have a normal routine outside of work but I need something to keep me active while on the clock.

Resistance bands are always good, and they are small and concealable. Scooby uses them a lot so if youre not sure what you can do with them look at some of his videos. You can also ask your boss if he's okay with you bringing some dumbbells or a compact stationary bike, since he seems cool with how much downtime you have.

If you really have as much free time as you say, exercise probably won't be enough. Try reading some books, teach yourself how to code, take some online classes, start a blog or write short stories, learn to Knott, etc. There are tons of hobbies you can do right in your office/cubicle and theyll probably feel more rewarding that browsing 4chan all day.
