Thats not even funny

I didnt even have to respond 2 others did it for me.

This thread has gone to complete shit. Its just one dyel after another giving out trash advice and making weird ass max calculations. Just let it die.
The insertion point of the lats are posterior to the origin in the down position of the bench.
Flex lats.
Humerus becomes neutral.

How the fuck don't you understand?

Get a broomstick. Stand. Place it in the bottom bench position. Flex lats.

See what happens.

Bingo bango.
>slight medial flexicon


You continue to prove my point. Lats are never, and would never be a factor in pec growth. They are used to stabilize the body. Just like abs. Just like legs. Just like your entire fucking body when bench pressing heavy

You singling out lats just shows how little you know

Is one significantly better or worse for me?

Does coffee really kill test production?
>Does coffee really kill test production?
Coffee has the potential to make you anxious, mostly done by the increased heart rate from caffeine. Your cortisol levels CAN therefore increase, and cortisol is a catabolic hormone - it basically fucks with test. Not all become anxious, however.

That being said, it's mostly if you take strong doses of the stuff.

To summarize: It most likely won't have that great an effect on test production, unless you constantly gulp it down. If you're prone to being anxious, I would limit the amount of caffeine intake.

Drink green tea instead. It has a small amount of caffeine, it has lots of anti-oxidants, increases appetite and is healthy for the heart. The real gem of green tea is the amino acid l-theanine, which increases focus and induces a calming effect.

If you decide to drink green tea, remember to brew it a approximately 80 degrees celsius, where most benefit is had. Brewing it at 100 degrees destroys the leaves

>he fell for liquid food meme

So yeah i decided to try this shit out
My stats 84kg bw, noob lifter, 186~cm
Impressions, day 3
Taste and texture is fine altough i would prefer choclate instead of banana, i add scoop of chocolate ON whey to each shake for total of 200g+ protons a day

Main concerns i had:
My shits arent liquid, in fact they are just good. Except the amount of it is much less
It fills me up just enough, i eat small snack like apple to almonds if i feel hungry, i guess some smaller people would not be able to chug whole shake at once.

If anyones interested then shoot questions

Not wanting to shill, just lookin for fit opinion on this style of nutrition.

>Too much money
I spent 200 euros for last shipment and it will last me 30 days

With whey protein its lets say, 240euro for complete nutrition, i might throw in fish oil for good measure

I bet the punch line sounded way better in your head.
I was on Joylent for a while, and I had found that the meal absorbtion was way too fast. I would get dizzy after consuming one of the three shakes of the day. Do you get that with Soylent?

Dizzy as in energetic ?
Idk only feel full and have the banana flavoured burps if i chug it fast.

Now im kinda getting hungry because chugged 2 meals rather quick.
Will have another one in 2 hours so ill eat an apple or two
No, not as in energetic. As in a bit sleepy and light-headed.

That being said, Joylent is much more carb heavy than Soylent, so I could probably try Soylent again and see how it goes.

It is really convenient if it works, the only question is what one would miss out on by not having the actual food. An active person could probably top it off with some actual food throughout the week to make up for any deficiencies though.
You need to chew shit so your jaw doesnt get weak, im serious

well if you want some serious masculine hobbies besides lifting, you can do something like
>motorcycle driving and maintenance

but modern normies scoff at those like they do at powerlifting, so it wont really help you in your desperate search for approval by your peers. if that's what you're after, enjoy your clubbing and alcohol consumption.

Is it possible to make gains if you have Insomnia?
19 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.

Yes, but only if you stop saying you have insomnia and start framing it as "I can sleep when I am dead."

Gains will only unlock only if you develop a smug attitude and begin to look down on people with normal sleep patterns.
Firstly go to the doctor to rule out anything serious, secondly get melatonin and take it an hour before bed and put your phone away
You get my kek
>tfw been up for 36 hours

trippin balls without drugs
hey man i had crippling insomnia and got better after starting marijuana intake before bed

slept not even 2 hours every night, i literally couldn't function anymore in society and was going fucking insane, a friend of mine who smokes said he slept so well after getting high

the pills didn't do shit to me anymore, so i got my buddy to score me 2 joints, i smoked them and i slept for 12 hours, woke up feeling like a fucking king.

i usually just buy edibles now and take them if i'm having a sleepless night, they put me in sleep in 15 minutes every single time

feels good

/fit/, can your metabolism be destroyed? Is "starvation mode" a thing? Can eating very little have some effect on the speed of weight loss?

I want to do one meal a day until my bday. I imagine it's okay because I'm pretty fat (5'5" ~245lb) but can any long term damage occur? I know fatness itself is damaging but if anything happened that could bring weight back on, I want to be able to lose it again. Secondly, if I kept my one meal high in protein and do body weight exercise will that help keep my body from eating away my muscle mass?
Does anyone have any tips to offer about bringing the the bar back down while deadlifting without wrenching your lower back, or clipping my knee?

I've got the other part figured out, but I still feel like I'm doing this wrong.
I've already followed a beginner focused barbell-only routine until I milked all the linear progression I could, newfriend.

I just find splits to be more fun than powerlifting. I still incorporate all the barbell compounds on my PPL so I don't know why you're that upset.
