Anxiety is a widespread symptom and it can be indicative of a wide variety of mental illnesses. It's the same case with depression. That's why it's important to see a shrink when you're having issues that are beginning to impact your life before they fester and progress into worse things.

my cholesterol is bad, at 7.6 - i'm 29, male, 6 feet tall, 170 lbs

people tell me to avoid eating eggs, others say to eat eggs

i don't know who to listen to

what does /fit/ think?
17 replies omitted. Click here to view.
don't eat and excessive amount of eggs if your cholesterol is bad

Doctors are pretty shit on nutrition. Especially in America, many would sooner prescribe a new med than have to actively say stop eating something.
1st line of therapy in both AHA/ACC and NLA guidelines is lifestyle modification. I don't know what you anti-doctor types get out of making shit up.

There is a legit possibility OP has FH that is largely unresponsive to such and requires meds.
Could be. You're right. But there is fuck all wrong with trying everything you can except medication.
That's quite the dumb sentiment. You can do many many harmful things to yourself without any medication.

Hey /fit/, what do you think of the BUFF DUDES?
No shit dunkass, look at the post I'm replying to.
>that guy who goes to the gym

I need some help guys.
I’ve been hitting the gym for about a year now doing the basic whole-body stuff recommended by the „trainers“ (cheap-ass gym filled with cunts) there, sometimes with pauses of up to a month and pretty irregular in general because of work.
Now I’ve got some time on my hands so might as well build a proper routine. The problem is I don’t want to build a foundation with SS-type programs/compound and work with isolation/cut then because of work and time reasons.
Even if that means less gains in the long run, I want to work towards an athletic build consistently without gain/cut intervals.
Losing some days because of work is to be expected, so 3 x week whole body is the best bet for me.
Is HST good shit for someone like me? Is the routine in the pic acceptable and would you change anything?
I add a few minutes warm up running at the beginning and about 15 min higher intensity running at the end so I’m at least doing some cardio too.
read the sticky
I did. That’s why I’m asking.
The sticky is basically: do SS or anything else that contains compound movements, high volume, low reps.
I’m sure I’d make good progress with SS too, but it’s still a bit too crude and not well rounded if I want to have a routine that focuses on consecutive progress without change and doesn’t have bulking/cutting intervals.
I don’t want to get big/strong and then fine-tune. I want linear progress that gives me optimal results at any stage of training.
Why don't you just use a setup that utilizes a few compounds/lower reps on one day, then alternate that with a day or days that use machines/isolation stuff/etc?
Don't waste our fucking time, faggot.

Get strong. Do SS. Want to make it more aesthetic? Focus on the press and use bench as an assistance exercise in the 7/8 rep range. Do 2-3 sets of chinups to failure, then bicep curls to failure on bench day. Do 2 sets of 30 crunches or three sets of weighted sit ups or hanging leg raises on press/DL day. Don't forget your damn Calves and maybe traps and forearms.

You can customizethe accessory bullshit as long as you go HARD on the main three.

Why do I hate on bench press? I don't. But it's not as good as dips so who gives a fuck. Not me. Fuck you, Rip. I love you, milkman.

Strong lifts because power cleans aren't necessary if you just want to get into good shape.
there is friendo
What does /fit/ recommend to a beginner then, SS to (insert program) or SL to (insert program)? There's always gotta be that base routine when you're a DYEL, not some split. Curious to see what /fit/ thinks.

just do something you fucking nigger
pick one and stick to it for a month
But you have to pay $10 for the warmup calculator. Is it even worth it?

Help me /fit/. I need a legit tried and true daily stretching routine to maximize flexibility. Especially if you're on the complete end of the inflexible spectrum. The SS of stretching.

I'm stiff as all hell. In all my years of playing sports and working out, getting fat and losing the weight, I have never added stretching to my routines. To any of them.

Not before a work out, not after, not on rest days. Not even "just because".

I'm not a fat slob, I wouldn't call myself fit yet but Id say I'm healthier than many others this country (America, which isn't saying much i guess). I'm active because my job forces me to be doing intense cardio all day (delivery boy for a busy restaurant in a city, in an area with many steep fucking hills). But for goodness sake I can't even touch my goddamn toes. Not because I'm anywhere near too fat to do so, but because my hamstrings are so unbelievably inflexible!
That is madness. I've been like this all my life. I have more will power to put over a hundred pounds on my body and lift it, than I have to just hold a stretch and do it routinely.

I now realized, this is mostly because I don't know anything about it. I'm not sure what I should be feeling, or aiming for. I don't have any idea of a routine, especially not one that would compliment weight training. I don't know when would be the best time to stretch or in what environment. And stretching is still dangerous if done improperly. I already have had injuries that's been preventing me from working out for a good 8 months so far (Got hit by a car and got a grade 3 concussion, months later then fell off bike and fractured my radius bone, haven't lifted in forever, depression coming back.)

tl;dr Give me a stretching regime that will maximize the flexibility of someone who NEVER STRETCHED despite having been active in his life and is recovering from injuries that are preventing me from lifting. And overall general discussion about stretching and flexibility.

I ususally take a hot shower while I'm soapin down. Then at the end I wash my hair with cold water and stand under the cold water for a minute or so. The cold water helped my scalp out a lot.. 0 dandruff and my hair is way smoother.

Cold showers are legit better than hot ones. OP, stop being such a bitch.

What excercises best to replace assisted dips and assisted chins (fatty needs assistance and new gym hasn't yet machine)?

Yowamushi pedal if you have a bike
Sports streams, i put on some old movies on when working out at home, or music i guess
So I apparently have compartment syndrome, my insurance won't cover it (it's "not necessary") and my doctor said that I should just skip cardio since running, biking, and elliptical set it off, and I can't swim.

Since I want to ignore that guy, what can I do to get a good cardiovascular workout in that isn't running, biking, elliptical, or swimming? I can walk almost forever but my understanding was that it doesn't matter how far you walk, it's never cardio. What are some things I CAN do?
Anyone have a routine for increasing ankle mobility?
I'm going full meme and start taking fish oil + whey + creatine.

I have a few questions though:
Should I take them everyday or only on workout days?
Should I really take 0.8g of whey per lb of bodyweight? That seems like a fuckton considering every label recommends taking 30g/day
