I have no goal.
I'm studying physics just because I have to do something, but I'm too arrogant to study something easier. I hate working, did several jobs.
I never had a gf, lost my virginity at 21, and probably never gonna have sex again because I was raised conservatively and don't have the morals to pay for sex or go clubbing and those shit.
I'm slightly overweight, can't keep up the will to get to normal wait. My lifting routine isn't stable. I sometimes don't go to the gym for a week because I come home from university feeling like shit and I'm not able to get any motivation for lifting. Mainly because no girl ever showed interes in my except that one I fucked. I'm a crippling social autist.
All I do is trying to keep up with university, playing vidya and lifting without any real routine.

I don't even know what I want to do in life. I have no drive for anything. I wish I could have children and a family to be honest, but that probably won't happen.
All I want nowadays is seeing the world burn, that's why I drift further into nazi-ism everyday.
>>
I'm probably moving in the next month to be with my gf. We've been dating a year long distance and I've talked to a lot of jobs out there. I'd like to make 70,000 by then and work on getting a house and have an 800 credit score. I'll probably be married with my gf by then if things go well. I've been in situations before where I thought I'd be married and had a great relationship but this girl and I have real plans and made a lot of strides together so I expect it to work out and she makes me so happy.

I also want my abs back. I drank too much last year when I finished grad school and got a belly for a bit. I've lost 20 pounds but need to do more and get 12% body fat or so. I'm like 16% now.

You feel like shit and don't have any drive because you structured your life in that manner. If you actually put in some work in all fields of life and develop a healthy scheduled your mind will perceive your life like something that has worth.
Right now you're useless piece of complacent shit, your mind knows it, and it make sure you feel it.

Thanks, I started doing SL but found my legs were ballooning far too much compared to the rest of my body, and squats first just hindered the other lifts.

I hadn't really paid attention to the suggested progression in lvysaurs, just increased by 2.5kg each time I could like with other LPs.

I like the varying reps though, but GSLP only seems to have that with the AMRAP final sets

I'm still dyel and can barely get over 1pl8 for anything. This is the program I've been doing for the last month (haven't missed a workout yet), and I think I want to give my biceps and chest some more love as they look underdeveloped to me. How can I add to this workout to hit my biceps and chest more? Just add another bench press somewhere? I don't know enough to not fuck up this routine by adding something in where I'm not supposed to.

The varying reps on Ivysaurs only seem to be there because you're working the same muscles twice in one session at heavy weights, they don't really add anything to the program.

In GSLP, the AMRAP sets are there so you can test yourself and advance as fast as possible, to take advantage of the nonlinearity of strength gains. Ivysaurs does this way suboptimally.

I can see why you like Ivysaurs, it does look kinda fun, but it's not for any good reason (that I can see) and you'd get better results (and less tricep fatigue) on GSLP.

Ok guys I'm thinking of becoming a pussy and not doing squats and deadlifts ever again. My reasoning is that the cons outweigh the pros. I don't wan't a herniated disc and I don't care if my legs aren't huge. My concern arised after I decided to google squat herniated disc and I get so many fucking results the fact is that having such a heavy load on top of the spine is risky imo and for what?
Instead I'm thinking trap bar deadlift, sled push, farmers walk, db bulgarian split squat, db deficit reverse lunge, db single leg rdl, barbell hip thrust, glute ham raises, kettleball swing, sprints and box jumps. Thoughts?

>Lose weight
>Get a more /fit/ body by lifting weights
Here we ask others for advice and give moral support to one another if you are too weak to survive solo. We all know losing weight when you are fat is easy if you just reduce calorie intake, literally piece of cake. At the end of the day this is a support general whose goal is to help and motivate the chubby channers who need to lose weight for a number of reason. Please be warned that there are some chronic idiots who post in this general giving horrible advice to troll or to reassure their extremist autism works for themselves, don't bother, always remember calorie intake, if it is lesser than how many calories your body burns you'll be fine.
And remember, if you are a loser when fat you'll still be a loser if you are thin, your weight isn't the problem.

I'm 24 and fat all my life too, got down to 220 from 300. You can make it, my first advice is to cut out soda and have only diet, if you drink soda that is a huge part of the problem. Cut down on things at first, take it slow and track your calories. At 260 you can lose a decent amount of weight as a big guy.

I didn't exercise at all until I hit around 240, diet is 90% of the weight loss. Don't worry about the excess skin at 19 it should still be elastic, but it's really just a random chance. At worst it's still better to look good clothed than look fat all the time.

Now don't be a bitch and actually follow up with the diet changes, calorie tracking and what have you. You're not going to make it unless you start taking it seriously. Wish I'd dieted at 19, by now I'd probably look decent.

>>41177758
hey man, 24 here too

I'm around 230 now down from 280, i'm almost scared to keep losing from fear of excess

I second that no fizzy drinks helped a LOT though, I have no idea why I ever drank that shit
>>
>>41177786
Good on you mate. I wouldn't worry about excess, I think you'd see the signs of it by now at your weight, like loose/saggy skin or stretch marks. Feel pretty sorry for those who get this badly, but one day maybe they could afford surgery if it really affects them.

Fizzy drinks must've been a good 1/4 or 1/3 of my total calories back then. I'd get 2-3 bottles of coke a week and drink it all myself. When I got off that is when my lifestyle change really began. But at the start it was really rickety given that I had nothing but some online friend in America to talk about this with, and looking at stuff online. But I'm making it.

236lb was my max back October.

200.4lb on the scale this morning.

I stalled at 205-210 around Jan-March, but most importantly I wasn't gaining.

My original goal was 200lb. Gonna move the goalposts to 182lb and 13 stone. I would imagine this will allow me into a 34 jean which I purchased in 2013. Then I am going to start running/rowing/cycling and maybe starting weight lifting when I move into my next flat so I can get an extra room for a rack and my rower.

My diet is going to consist of.

3 small eggs with fried onions and a squirt of Sriracha.
Half can/ full can of tuna in wrap with greens mayo, and a Squirt Of Sriracha.
Chicken breast grilled and drained + fried onions/mushrooms/peppers with a SOS

Not a lot unless you're supplementing accesories like rows, presses and volume squats.

But doing this will also make it harder to recover and most coaches will discourage it since it distracts from getting better at the competition movements.

Unless you're on gear like the top elite athletes then you can birdybuild as much as you want.

I really get a cancer everytime someone asks about aesthetics / strength base / self-made fuck around program

>>41177023
Picking the weight up and then lowering it down above your knees / under your knees etc.

>>41177017
Tbh i'd like to know why there is not any hang work. Its important because it's easier to lower the barbell straight down (teaching the right positions) and pull it straight up the same path that you lowered it down --> you lern the tech easier.

Hang work also lets you focus more on the second pull and pull under. Its easy to fuck up both of those, and its much easier when you add the first pull to it. But when you understand how the second and third pull feels, its easier to see when you fuck the first pull when doing the full exercise.

Most coaches program the lifts based on your weaknesses / what you need to improve. You can't do this if you make a general program for fuck-around beginners.

There are so many exercises that most of the beginners should be doing instead of the full lifts, squats and pulls. They might be boring tech work, but that's how you learn the fucking lifts..

Title. I live in a bad neighborhood and the only gym nearby is a planetfitness.

It was (kinda) perfect, I can go on my way to work in the morning, or when I'm coming back from work. Thing is, it got shot up a couple days ago. I don't feel safe going there anymore, and there are no nearby gyms. I do not own a car so just "going to a further one" isn't an option.

What do I do? Risk my gains or risk my life? What would you do?

Will you stick around more tho? Would be cool.

I dodn't see an sqt so I figured since my question was stupid, I could incormporate other stupid questions in this thread as well,

So I recently joined a gym like 10 days ago, and all I am doing now is a warm-up streaching routine and 30 pushups/20 attempt at pull ups

The trainer guy says I gotta do this until I can do 50 proper push ups, and hasn't said anything about cardio or running etc

I am 21 and skinny but that doesn't mean no unnecessary fat, I tried looking around the interwebz but almost all info is either for advanced or mumbo jumbo, I don't even get half the words.

So my question is, should I start lifting and if yes what work out's would be ideal for a skinny dude, I got a dumble lying around at home and I can probably create some weights with bag and books, also what about cardio?

Any new friend advice is welcome

the SL 5x5 program specfically starts with the bar (plus a bit for DL and such). there are some great reasons for this, you avoid the trial and error that you're talking about, and you learn the proper form and make CNS gains. Plus you add steady weight each workout. I had a good experience following that program, ended up with better form than all the retards in my gym but thats not saying much

Somethings weird with your math. If 2700 some is yiur total theb 415 is not 25%. Regardless, add more fat, 50g is like a minimum to not have weird hormonal side effects. If its for gaining then really it will depend on what you can manage to pound down and the macros dont matter as much. Ignore what i said about added sugar, you're gonna have to abuse sugar. Just lift hard and dont get the beetus
