Why is height a thing people care about? I mean unless we're talking about extreme height differences with dwarfism where I can see a legitimate issue. Now, weight, that's something you chose and can change.

I'm 5'6 and I never gave it much thought, because I'm too shy to talk to women and always have been. That's the only time it would've come up. I didn't realize until recently, when I actually wanted to get my shit together and resolve my loneliness, that I did some lurking and learned women actually care about this. A lot! Unreasonably. More women than not. You can't just be the same height, or slightly taller, you gotta lead them by 6 inches.

And I don't understand it. Is there even an equivalent of that, that guys have for women?

Looking people right in the eyes and holding eye contact is usually a good way to keep people in check, also a strong handshake.

Learned this over the years of working construction

just like any other animal; whoever breaks eye contact first is subordinate

you really take those scientific studies (which are constantly changing and contradicting themselves throughout the years) wayyyyyyyyyy too seriously

you probably also do PUA and believe life is just science and math.

Is it normal if I don't ever feel the 'burn' in any muscle group when doing deadlifts?

When squatting, I can feel my quads heat up, and glutes in a smaller way.
When benching, I feel my pecs.
When doing OHP, I feel my shoulders.

But when deadlifting I don't feel any muscle bearing the load.
I just feel increasingly tired all over with every rep, but it's like no particular muscle is performing the exercise and more like the bar is magically sapping my strength from my whole body.
jokes on you. i already slipped 2 discs deadlifting. might as well carry on, right babe?
210 - 215kg
100kg (2pl8)
I feel the same. DL just kills my complete body.

Hi /fit/,

Haven't been here in about a year or two; I remember Reviewbrah and Scooby's downfall very well though and remember this board being helpful once the good lifters were here.

During the academic year I lost 14kg of body weight. I started my first session yesterday with light weights and to avoid terrible DOMS I left it at a lower weight without seeing if what I could get. I would like to keep it that way for the moment to keep my linear progression stable because once momentum gets going it takes a long time to stop. Moreover, a friends who had a similar break who was using my programming got back to his best lifts in about a month, but that doesn't seem realistic to me and I haven't seen him do it either.

My question is to any of you who came back from a break in lifting. How long was it and how long did it take to hit your own maxes again?
give us a name before this gets removed pls

What supplements do you use?
Are you satisfied?
currently just yohimbine
and a multi
loving the yohimbine so far
anyone know dosage of zinc and mag?
and when to take them?
Steroids are a pretty good supplement.
500mg Test E per week. Cheaper and probably safer than any of the shit supplements ITT.
Currently taking creatine.
Plan on trying out vitamin D, zinc in case I have some deficency. Judging by the food I eat and the small time I'm exposed to the sun, daily I'm most likely Vitamin D deficient and zinc, just because I still have acne despite having cutting out most saturated fat and sugar out of my diet, which is a sign for zinc deficiency.

Currently on a cut and I'd like to try out yohimbine too, but I'm not sure sure if it's just bullshit.

Well it finally happened /fit/. My dad died this morning. I had to think back to this post I made over 3 1/2 years ago, I remember an outpour of support from the community, and I remember how much strength it gave me to go on. So I thought of you today and thought I'd say hi one last time.

Pictured: the post from 2012 and just for fun: him feeding a grizzly bear wearing a shirt that says "no risk no fun". The terrified little kid behind him is me. He was diagnosed with Fronto-Temporal Dementia 8 years ago, slowly turned his brain into mush. His name was Hans-Ulrich Dietzel. He was the bravest man I ever met, and I will miss him dearly.

Thank you /fit/

>In this case of doping have been convicted of five Olympic champions - the four winners of the Games in London and one in Beijing champion.

Sounds like Aramnau might have passed it again, only one champion popped in 2008. Though that still might be him, or worse, Liao... Would Liao get banned for life now? He was already punished for doping in 2010, and this (2008 olympics) happened before. Will they consider that he has already served his time, or will he get punished again?

Worrying about Lu and Ilya though. Four champions from 2012 popped. UGH
kim un guk was olympic champion and also tested positive at 2015 wwc so it wouldn't be suprising if he came up positive, you guys seem to be assuming its all men too, which is unlikely.

also until anything is officially published by iwf or whoever this is just rumours

Yes, it's a total of 15 champions per year.
Considering only one has allegedly popped in 2008, chances are we don't have much to worry about there.

But 5 champions have allegedly popped in 2012.
That is a pretty big reason to start worrying about some of the big names.

And they might still not be over with the retests. So we might have more bad news to come.

Still probably gonna take quite a while for the IWF to publish anything official with names.
How would you describe Toshiki's proportions/femur?

Why does he squat so wide? What kind of build is that useful for?
I find it really weird the way you say 'they popped' as if it's a balloon. It's 'they got popped'.

I know English is your second language tho so I will let u off ;^)

Is veganism actually superior to eating meat?

Every post I've read said that going vegan increased people's gains, health, etc. but as a lifelong vegan I have not seen this.

>Pic related is my body.

I was raised by vegan parents and ate vegan all my life. I don't look or feel healthy. I struggle to bench press 85lbs. Is this is a problem with veganism, or just bad genetics?

Are you surprised? Your parents malnourished you. They destroyed what could have been you by giving you inadequote food. You should sue them and get them locked up.

You wrote fucking nothing.

Yawn. Please proceed to post Cobalt B12, which treats cobalt deficiency in cattle and has B12 to help with the absorption of cobalt and has nothing to do with B12 deficiency.

This sport is overrun, there's no denying it now.
Snatch grip deadlifts are a gift from God when it comes to training lower back.

Honestly lads. Should I do these on my warm -ups?
They're fucking great

I deadlift 3x a week and can't really fit them in. They're more fun than real deadlifting.
True, I should keep that in mind.

I pull sumo and yesterday, after this squat thing, I couldn't lift heavy because it would hurt.
But I believe it didn't further aggreviate it, but rather was a result of already hurt knees.

Let's hope I can at least deadlift, then I will seriously do like 3x5 deads twice a week.
Can you not squat anymore man? Neither can if or a while and I've been doing greg nuckols 3 day novice deadlift program with many singles.

It's fucking great. Perhaps you'll enjoy it? I know it says novice but it's really not.
Neither can I for a while***

That's fucking vile.
Take this advice to heart /fit/izens. I used to be cynical as fuck and single. Now I'm a little more open-minded and with a girl I plan to wife up in half a decade or so. Even if it seems like girls are retarded (indeed, half of them are below average intelligence) you just have to find intelligent hobbies that require dedication. one exception, the gym probably isn't the best place for this since you're both gonna be sweaty and uncomfortable. If any of you do "smart drugs" like psychedelics, tripping with someone is an excellent test of their character.

while i do agree that women are generally shitstains with no passions, interests, directions, goals, understanding or respect, everytime i see /fit/ discussing them, it seems that you are coming into contact with the absolutes shittiest layer of women possible.

some women are genuinly good at things and spend time on them. some of them understand what the terms effort and passion mean. some of them can carry 1v1 conversation that isn't the most boring, shallow shitshow.

it's like you are not even trying to find them and just hope that some trash found on tinder, for example, is different...it's not.
