Can we get a /fitlit/ going?

I recently read Mark Manson's book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck" and thought it was babby-tier wannabe-stoic advice on life. I think people would be better off just rereading Aurelius's Meditations or the Enchiridion of Epictetus again. Though, I guess it does put a modern spin on it. I just wish Manson would say outright that his, "You're in charge of your own emotions so choose how you react," is pretty much ripped right out of stoicism. He's also full of fallacious arguments and knocks religion, pro-lifers, racists, sexists, etc. in his book for some reason which is, unironically, giving a fuck about those people or belief structures. With that in mind, I'd give it a solid 3/5. It's worthy of a read because it's quick, decently funny, offers good advice in some areas, but falls short and into fallacy in other parts contradicting himself numerous times. Also he resorts to anecdotes, """friends'""" stories (really just himself but he's too pathetic to admit it's him because he actually gives a fuck), and simply refuses to reference anyone but his immediate understanding of the world. There is no shame is referring people to Aurelius.

I come bearing gifts too. Here's his shitty book for those who wants it.

>If you are texting, go with a 3:4 ratio
My communication, internet or otherwise, would be cut down to literally 2 people. I need my human_blog.txt people to unload my bullshit on and once every 2 years maybe even gain a useful insight from one of them.

as a white guy, it hurts to admit but this is a fact.

when white women fuck niggers, they are able to get massive orgasms by penetration alone.

but we white guys need to play with their clits or nipples or foreplay to satisfy them.

What would happen if I did test for 3 months and then never again?

I've heard that using test will increase someones performance for the rest of heir lives if only used at least once.

I'm skeptical but who knows.
>>
damn. following this thread. I always assumed it would have the opposite effect, but I have absolutely zero evidence to support that.

Even if the effect of short-term test use were neutral for long term test levels, I'd probably give it a try.

I think you're right. I just hate making time for what I like to call vanity lifts.

I never exactly thought I personally was too smart but I did think for years that lifting was just for dumb chavvy guys on tons of roids. Then I got to be friends with a guy who's pretty big and also ten times smarter than me and he helped me get into it.

Beta poor people food. Great source of indigestible lectins. Miles better than refined carbs though.

If you're gonna eat them, cook the fuck out of them or get them refried. A pressure cooker may be a good investment.

I really am having a hard time deciding if you're actually retarded or just vegan.

Macros include protein, carbs, fat.
Micros include everything else.
Both of these come together to determine your nutritional needs every day.

different guy how long vegan for? Other lifts ? Training period?

So I found the perfect gym track ( https://youtu.be/bi-w_xtBt1U ) and I want to get my body in a daily pattern of working out to it multiple times each day

What are some quick bodyweight workouts like pic related that'll help me do that?
