I would argue that you are an anomaly then, most guys are comfortable bringing a girl home and fucking her without even knowing her last name

Dont get me wrong, i like to know a girl and have some sort of chemistry but im a guy and im not too picky
Girls on dating sites however are extremly picky

There was this tinder experiement and a girl profile managed to match with 700+ guys in just one day when swiping all rights so there is that to consider

Quick question on this
How exactly, do you know your own ranking?
To you youre a 8 but to random chick on tinder #1 youre a 6 while she is a 6 to you

Ive pulled girls ranging from 6-9/10s and i stay far away from tinder because i know it would completly shatter my self confidence when i get no matches at all

the shit is scary though. Honestly feels like that movie "Limitless". Just wish it was possible to get that kind of, almost adrenaline, kick while studying some other way. When i used it i could get super into the most absurd shit, like reading about Scottish monarchs for hours

It also makes you more "on", being able to bring up statistics, quotes and whatnot in real - time when you're in a discussion. It's honestly a superdrug and you DO notice that (at least half-smart)people with ADHD has a super good memory and is able talk circles around you just because of that drug.

If you're a weightlifter without a coach trying to do things on your own please read this

Weightlifting is more coach than program related. This is not powerlifting where you just squat, bench and deadlift to get better. Try to find even an online coach. Your program should build around your weaknesses (and you don't know all of them, or what would really work for you). If you just pick a random program, you'll probably reinforce bad habits when you try to stick to the % and volume.

Don't be one of those guys who start doing full snatches, rack holds, complexes, pulls under knees etc. all at the same time, without experience, with shitty technique, without knowing how to do them.. You'll just destory your chances.

Aware me on white rice macros, /fit/.

I see that 1 cup of UNCOOKED rice is about 45g carbs, but what about 1 cup cooked? It pretty much doubles in size once it's cooked from absorbing all the water. So would 1 cup of COOKED rice have less carbs than 1 cup uncooked?

And by 1 cup cooked rice, I mean 1 cup of already cooked rice put into a measuring cup. Not 1 cup of uncooked rice made into cooked rice.

White rice is cheaper, easier to digest and more likely to be free of allergens. It also has less fat.

White rice is literally only just the carbs and not much nutrients left, unlike the other kinds. It also has a high glycemic index. Enjoy your diabetes, I guess.

Weekend tempetation edition

How are you gonna stay on your diet this weekend /fat/?

Last thread BMI >300 40821184

Who is /fat/ for? Fat members of /fit/ who want to learn how to eat right, lift weights, and lose fat. Here we ask others for advice and give moral support to one another. We all know how hard it first is and we all have to get through it to better ourselves. At the end of the day this is a support general whose goal is to help and motivate the chubby channers who need it. Please be warned that there are some chronic idiots who post in this general giving horrible advice that doesn't work for them or anybody. If you see something that contradicts what the sticky says, ignore it.

That's called a romanian deadlift. Muscularly, it's not training anything different if you're lowering it to just barely above the floor. Certainly you could train this and get pretty much the exact same muscle growth. Usually RDLs are lowered to about halfway or 3/4 the way down the shin though.

Strength-wise, not having a full stop between each rep is a different exercise. It's more difficult to get a motionless bar off the floor compared to using the stretch reflex when you don't stop the movement. This is why it's called a deadlift as its meant to be started from a dead stop. Also, always having a full stop between each rep makes them be identical. If you bounce the weight or do them RDL-style, the first rep will be different from the rest. This makes a bigger difference the less reps you do in a set.

Of course, if you have form problems with doing a movement a certain way, don't do it that way. The moment of changing directions in an RDL is where the greatest strain is put on your back. The quicker you lower the bar the greater the acceleration required to make it stop and change directions. If you're not prepared for it, you can lose control of your posture. If you do RDLs, do the lowering part of the movement slower than you would lower the part in a normal deadlift.

probably lower back or your quadriceps femoris, when you can't straighten your legs properlu then your ass goes back and then the work is done by your glutes and lower back, which is straining
