kek. she is literally a good catholic girl

and she rarely goes out. its either chill with me or stay home and watch over her grandmother.

not all girls are evil sluts, anon.

My tips for dating girls are:
>never date ones that are doing edgy jobs as female (doctor, engineer, etc) cause theyre uptight and pretentious... i am an engineer and have dealt with this
>never date ones with dyed hair colors of red, blue, purple, platinum blonde, etc
>never date ones that put out first date.. hell even first month
>meet parents and judge how good the family is as a whole.. itll tell a lot about her

Not even close to right. He was 170 cm, or about 5'7", which was above average at the time. The rumor that he was shorter was caused by two things:
>the English and the French used different definitions of "foot"/"inch"; he was 5'4" by French measurements and the English interpreted that to mean he was 5'4" by their measurements so they could mock him
>his royal guard was composed of exceptionally tall men, and they were the only people with whom he was regularly photographed

Can I achieve a decent body with decent strength if I cannot move my shoulder above 90 degrees? Cant externally or internally rotate it either. Have cysts in it, surgery isnt an option because I cant afford it. It doesnt really bother me but i should snap shit up. Anyways can I still bench? I'm not sure. I just wana have a good body and good arms still but shoulder issues remove most good tricep work, what should I do? Also do drag curls use a lot of shoulder?

If I'm getting adequate protein and keep lifting, will I maintain adequate muscle mass despite how many other calories I get?

Like can I just drink low calorie, high protein shakes all day and maintain a decent cut?
>>
>>32641844
Yes you can but /fit/ will tell you otherwise. Look into a PSMF or google Lyle McDonald's RFL. Muscle loss w/ adequate protein intake and exercise is minimal at best. Izzy from PLTW lost 30lbs in 80days with no net strength loss.
>>
>>32641844
Okay not sure if this is the right thread or if I'll get a reply but currently cutting on 2500 calories and only have 606 left to eat but feel like I could eat way more. I did heavy squats yesterday and heavy rack pulls today and am feeling it in my back. So would a day of eating maintenance ~3000 cal be okay, I also ate maintenance yesterday as I thought it would aid recovery. I'm also taking alphamine as a fat burner but have no ideas how I should adjust my cals while using it?
>>
>>32644018
Won't matter if one day. You need to trend something for it to be effective.
>>
>>32641844

eat good carbs, hit your macros

dont make my mistake and go super low carb, it kills your energy and can increase cortisol/kill metabolism

im so glad I can eat carbs now, I thought it would fuck me over. get your carbs, protein, and keep fat low.

My tits are actually pretty nicely shaped but they have nothing to do with lifting so tits and hips for better or worse are a result of genetics. You get fatter but you can't really gain muscle those two places unlike ass.

Joina sports club. Do a course or some kind of further education. Those are the only 2 ways really. Getting to know and involved doing stuff with people in your local community can help. Tho this backfires if your local community are weed smoking Chavs say, which is often the case in the UK.

Hey guys,

18 year old guy with kyphosis here. I got it due to laying against a wall with my neck bent in a 90 degree angle, if it makes sense. Basically laying with head up on my chest, a book on my stomach, reading. I did this every day throughout my entire childhood, hours upon hours daily. Naturally fucked me up.

Right now I just want to know if there is anything I can do to make the curve smaller. It affects my height (175cm) and makes me look disproportionate (long ass legs). It's my biggest insecurity.

175cm tall, 70kg/155lbs. Bench 80kg 2 years ago (never maxed again), squat sucks because of back, DL sucks.

Has anyone gone through this? Talked to my doc but he said that since I'm not experiencing pains, I just have to live with it. He also believes it's genetic, but it's absolutely not. I'm looking for some help/advice/anything to make this better.

Will bump with pics that I took today.

can you put your back against the wall and push the back of your head into the wall? standing straight, everything pushed into the wall as close as you can.
>>
>>32646858
This.
Plus strenghtening the muscles of the back e.g. with "supermans"... where you, like, lie on your stomach and then lift your arms & legs with your back muscles
Plus mental cues all through out the day, all the time.
Plus sleeping on the ground. Uncomfortable at first, but gets better once the muscles in your back start lenghening again.

All of this helped me for a while, but I gave up and fell back into my old ways.
>>
>>32646867
I've done all that. Still boils down to surgery or people correcting very mild cases of kyphosis. I guess I wanted some success stories and to see what people on here have come up with.
>>32646951
I had a period where I tried too, but studying, sitting in class and being on the comp made me fall back too.

I mainly work out to hide the kyphosis, don't care about the rest.
>>
>>32646949
Yes, but I get a big arch between the upper back and my ass.
