Adrenaline is literally coursing through me /fit/ I completely ruined a Chad in front of his gf, is she my gf now? Maybe I was a Chad myself this whole time.

Yeah it just sounds like he was showing off to his gf commanding you about. You responding appopriately and didn't do some ott or autistic shit. How he responding after was what he should have said initially.

However you are a retard for forgetting to claim his gf at gym reception after that decisive victory.

To be fair he was being a dick for saying it. Anyone who says otherwise has never lifted in a commercial gym. 99% of people leave their shit. It's a blessing when someone like OP only leaves lmao1pl8 on a bar
>>
>>43615467
I'm with you OP. Besides OHP itself, there isn't a compound I warm up with, with less than 1 plate. And I'm pretty dyel compared to some of you guys.

>warming up with the bar
Why even bother
>>
>>43619320
Exactly. With dumbells you shod always rerack them but with the plates it's pretty pointless regardless of what the weight is.

You can set the handles to the outside of the cage so that you don't hit the top bars. I do this all the time when the squat rack is being used.

Aging is a funny thing, and when you really think about it, its just a word that we use to describe someone who looks more sickly and unwell, or perhaps the more accurate term would be "getting old".

The thing is if we can get a handle on our own bodies, and nutrition, and find what works for us and is beneficial, not damaging. Whatever number you are really shouldnt matter. I am 32 and far more healthy then a lot of other people my age, plus I get mistaken for 22 a lot(also good genes help)

Goodluck!

I ask because the last time I felt really satisfied for hours on end is when I ate a bacon bleu cheese double burger with homemade chips. I try to eat fruits, yogurt, nuts and I usually have a protein bar everyday because I'm busy in the mornings. A few nights a week I'll have .5-1 cup of brown rice with cooked veggies. Other nights I'll have a lean cuisine or something but I eat far less of those now than I used to. I've been attempting to significantly reduce processed foods in my diet.

>2) you have to NOT drink too much water.


Thanks. But why this? Also, where do you get pure potassium?
>>
>>43619238
Drinking too much water just flushed minerals out of your body for no reason.

NoSalt is a salt alternative that is just potassium chloride. Find it at common grocers everywhere.

This is just my experiences, but there are no real hunger pains outside of the initial 24 hours.

I feel hunger pains the first night and then nothing significant going forward.

I might feel a slight pang of hunger when I first wake up, mild, lasts like 2 minutes. After that nothing all day.
>>
>>43619266

this guy is indeed correct!! good luck to both of you

Your body conducts electricity basically through nerves, and sodium and potassium assist in this process

If you don't have enough grams (literally) of electrolytes in your body, especially if you have too much water in there too, you will feel muscle soreness, shakiness, and pain. Basically heroin withdrawal symptoms.

If it gets bad enough, you will begin to have seizures, go into a coma, and die.

A number of people have died of very quick hyponatremia. You definitely don't want it :D

Eat lots of protein and get lots of sleep. Try to use the muscle frequently (obviously not lifting, just movement) to increase circulation. Good luck anon, get well soon

>>43618640
yes, abs are made in the kitchen, but as long as you're careful not to hurt your back i would recommend hitting your abs every other day, even a little bit. i'm always surprised by how far a set or 3 of situps, bicycle kicks, or leg lifts goes towards improving core definition/performance. we're all gonna make it bros

>>43618691
yes, and particularly stabilization and rotation exercise for core (think of trying to build obliques and serratus). if you're stronk already, then really just continue lifting but eat more salad than grains. i <3 veggies, and tend to eat 2-3x more veg than calorific starch
