Hey /fit/, so I've been lifting for roughly a year now, haven't made any amazing progress but enough to be a bit happy with myself. (Went from 130 to 170ish, bf is kinda high because I stress eat. I'm currently started doing PPL + HIIT, 5-6 times a week).

But I've been thinking a lot lately about calisthenics and it does have it's appeal when it comes to endurance, body strength, you don't have to eat as much, and the fact you can do most of it at home. The only downside is you can't get much bigger after hitting a certain level.

So I was hoping for stories from people who have tried both, their experiences, and what they currently do now. Feel free to post current body for reference.
>>
Not much to add to this about progress and stuff, but some bodyweight exercises certainly teach you the next level of stability and of full body tension you may not get from anywhere else. Another thing is that any weight you may gain makes you objectively stronger even if you only maintain your strength level.

If zyzz was still around what would he think of modern 4chan?

Would he be on board with the whole MAGA thing this site got swept up in?

>He's a dead idiot who killed himself with steroids
this is coming out of the mouth of someone on /fit/
Zyzz did a little more than just abusing steroids, you have no idea how inspirational he was for /b/tard, and he lived the dream, even if it was only for a short time it's better than staying alive but being trash
imagine enjoying more being alive but having cardiac arrest and having to move around on a fucking scooter than having a shorter lifespan but being able to travel all around the world, do what you loved while being in a incredible body and inspiring people

Is making it essentially becoming a top 10% male?

Y axis is male attractiveness. X axis is female attractiveness. The color where they meet determines if there's a female or male advantage. For example a man in the 80% percentile and a woman in the 40% percentile match up in the pink zone, so the female has the advantage in the interaction.

Oh, that makes sense, I wasn't reading it as percentile

No /lit/ people are scrawny little cunts which is an advantage for pullups but a disadvantage for pushups
>>
>>44373019
No, scrawny people don't have to lift as much in either case. Bodyweight exercises favor the skeleton

>>44372603
either you lack proper technique for the push-ups or your dips are whack

Gym Rats:
- highly strung, self-concious individuals
- afraid to talk to or scare off women
- socially awkward dudes lifting heavy things and putting them back down for the purpose of getting larger
- big weird body

Surfers:
- relaxed, non-self concious individuals
- surrounded by women
- ocean demigods ordained by poseidon, connected to nature, ride waves for the purpose of fun
- body of an adonis

what the fuck is wrong with you /fit/ ?

Mostly meme answers so I will answer seriously. As someone who has surfed for more than ten years in different countries and having friends who have professionally surfed, we tend to avoid the stereotype surfers, especially the 40s mid life crisis people who just buy into the image. When you are on the lineup you can tell who is an asshole if they try and drop in on your wave.

tl;dr: surfing is fun but like >>44372269 said if you make it your whole personality (same with gym) you can be very one dimensional. The character with glasses sums up everything I hate about surf/hippy culture in the video.

I use it (Charge 2 here). I like the layout and the data visualization, as well as the calorie tracking. As for calorie burn and accuracy, the website states it has a margin of error of +/-15%, so I never use it to factor into meal planning. Instead, I use it to track the intensity of similar workouts... Like if it says I did 600 calories on back/bis day this week, but last week it said I did 700, I know I didn't go as hard this week.

>>44371439
I don't think you can sync your non-Fitbit band to a Fitbit dashboard. The interface doesn't give you the option to add it. See pic related. It has the whole list, but no third-party options. You could try to go down the API route and see if you can use their SDK, but I'm not that savvy. If it isn't supported natively, I don't fuck with it.

To reduce your risk of stroke, heart disease and cancer simply eat more sweet potatoes because this SUPER FOOD is no longer overlooked and underrated. If you're interested in living a longer, healthier life, add sweet potatoes to your regular diet. Below are some important reasons why:

High in Fiber:

The sweet potato is a good source of dietary fiber, which lowers the risk for constipation, diverticulitis, colon and rectal cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. The fiber in sweet potatoes provides a feeling of fullness and satiety, which helps to control food intake.

High in Antioxidants:

Antioxidants play a role in the prevention of heart disease and cancer, and sweet potatoes supply plenty of the antioxidants, vitamin E and beta-carotene. Antioxidants are essential for good brain functioning and in delay in the effects of aging on the brain. This fat-soluble vitamin is found mainly in high-fat foods such as oils, nuts, and avocados. Only the sweet potato provides vitamin E without the fat and calories.

Low Glycemic Index:

A low glycemic index is desirable and is characterized by slow absorption, a modest rise in blood glucose, and a smooth return to normal. This is especially important for people with diabetes, whose good health is dependent upon stable blood glucose levels. Diabetics and others wanting to avoid glucose highs and lows can turn to sweet potatoes, which have a low glycemic index.

Excellent Source of Potassium:
