how autistic are you?
I once smiled at a girl thinking she was someone else, she came right up and started talking to me and I got her number. Happy accident.
who is this qtp2t?
I am, I never make eye contact though because I'm shy and I just want to lift and leave.
Also I'm seeing someone could be why she doesn't, but even when I was single it was the same way.
So basically it could be she has a bf, or is shy.

It isn't "added fat" guy, fat is a necessary part of the human diet. He said unsaturated fat which is generally accepted as good fat. Just google why you need fat in your diet.

Smoking pot and playing Elder Scrolls Online is the best post-workout there is. Name your favorite thing to do after lifting.
Eating some protons.
What about after that?
Taking a shower and then proceeding to rub body lotion all over my body, feel that pump. N-No self-homo.
Depends on my workout.

Full weight squats/deads usually drains me so much that I don't want to do anything, even play games, so I just get some food/tea and sit and watch something or browse 4chan with some music on.

Easier stuff, nice to take a shower, have some hot tea and get comfy with some Skyrim or something.

Ive been bulking from 70 kgs to 80. Currently on 77.

Height is 175 cm

Also, I am close to goal weight. Should I bulk through winter a little more and wait to cut in spring (for the summer body) or start cutting as soon as I reach my goal?

Sorry for the angle, cant really see arms and traps much.

Things you wish you knew when you first started lifting
>supps are bs (other than creating or beta alanine) spend that $ on food
>don't fall for the high rep scheme meme, low rep schemes assuming the same volume, give you just as much hypertrophy and MORE strength gains
>protein timing DOES matter
>the whole "it's bad to workout for longer than hour because your cortisol increases" is complete BS
>focus on eating in a surplus, increasing volume a little bit everyday, eventually increase weight once you can do lots of volume with previous weight (don't go overboard though, there's a point where doing tons of reps will purely just give you an endurance effect rather than much hypertrophy or strength gains

>"it's bad to workout for longer than hour because your cortisol increases"
you're right, its bad to work out for longer than an hour because if you are; you aren't training hard enough nor efficiently enough.
>wish i hadn't bought into the cardio kills gains meme.

Started lifting ~5 years ago, only last 2 years have i been doing cardio and i can't tell you how many things have improved. I'm much leaner, my appetite is better, i can walk up stairs without getting puffed,my mobility is no longer completely shit.

keep your hips forward during ohp
don't try and make your own routine until you've read practical programming
if you're too lazy to do that then at least see pic related
for the most part, strength = hypertrophy.
build yourself a foam roller using pvc pipe, dish foam(that shit you wrap dishes in when you're moving, and tape. your back will thank you
Best advice ever been given: "Don't listen to /fit/"

>inB4 listening to this advice would still be listening to /fit/
Disagree, top powerlifters will have a slight arch sometimes, but their advanced CNS allows them to stabilize and protect them from injury so it's not as big a deal.
This is incorrect. As I stated before, if you're doing low rep schemes for the same volume as someone doing high rep schemes, it's going to take a long time, you need more rest in between sets. If you're really doing HIGH volume and HEAVY weight, rather than one or the other, it's GOING TO take a long time. This does not mean it's inefficient, if anything it's much MORE efficient because you're producing as much hypertrophy effects as a bodybuilder doing high rep schemes, but gaining MORE strength

Ever do a carb refeed, carb loading, or carb cycling? It does wonders.

I'm glad 4chan doesn't have a bunch of idiots saying things they have no knowledge of.
Pizza is god-tier comfort food. Once every 3-4 weeks I have a cheat day and pizza is always involved.

The weird part is that when I was hamplanet I could eat 2 pizzas in one shot. Now I start to feel sick from overeating as I finish a half.

Here's question /fit/:

>Is it bad gym etiquette to approach a girl at the gym?

I saw this girl at the gym a couple weeks ago, but I don't see her every time I go. It's not a lack of confidence in being able to start a conversation, it's more of a respect thing. Like, I don't mind when people bug me at the gym, but I'd prefer to just get my shit done. I can only imagine that girls prefer the same thing, as I'd imagine they get far more attention.

So should I keep her as eye candy every once and awhile, or is it cool to go up and start a conversation?

Yes, but if she isn't a manhating autist looking for reasons to post to tumblr she probably won't mind.
If they often make eye contact and smile or acknowledge you then you can open up conversation.

Don't be an indian guy and making women uncomfortable at the gym
its okay if youve got an lowkey chub and your fuckin curls better be slow mirin form
