Hello /fit/

A girl on my Facebook quite recently faced an interesting dilemma, and I thought it would be an excellent opportunity for the shallow females of this world to show that they're not all that bad.

Here's the scenario. She is your typical fatty, but started losing weight. She managed to lose 15kg/33lbs and was doing well. Then she was offered a modeling contract as a plus-size model which, should she accept, naturally would mean the end of her weight loss.

Her choice was discussed in a popular radio show and around 1200 people have liked the Facebook post and are now discussing their opinions.

I actually thought she'd chose health and long-term happiness and well-being, but there is no happy ending: she apparently accepted the contract and will, I suppose, become even fatter. Shame

What do you think? Pic very related

I'm not even him, but grow the fuck up you fucking pussy.

The guy clearly was trying to give you advice, but you became all butthurt and assblasted because he called your lifts shit (which they are) and therefore ignored the rest of his post.

What's next? Are you gonna go on a hunger strike because you found this post to be offensive?

Also, you really need to stay in school, for real. I don't know how you got the impression I said the adviced was weaker than me. Could be a "strongman" for all I care, I'd still tell him to cut that shit out with the insults. Just because a guy is big, or in your case fat and been lifting for longer, doesn't mean he can insult begginer's just because. You're the same as mmorpg nerds.

You can barely deadlift 1 plate. Your lifts are shit, get over it. There are people who pull hundreds of pounds who still think their lifts are shit relative to others. Do you get upset from all the manlet threads and racism too?
Take the advice and let that be the end of it, unless you want further clarification

Anyone else feel like their barbell rows (SL5x5 style) attract negative attention in the gym? I've already had two different guys tell me that I'm "doing it wrong", one thought I was trying to do deadlifts and the other thought I was doing yates rows. What do?

Pendlay rows are easier to do, but they never seemed to do much for me in terms of building a bigger, stronger back. I prefer a more bodybuilding style row as an accessory to heavy cleans/power cleans/snatch pulls/clean pulls. My back has always been a weak point for me. I barely have lats, but since I have started doing more oly-style lifting my back has been improving.

But there's no room for 'struggle', like you would struggle on squats/ohp/bp etc.

Is it a good idea to tie Pendley Row's with Bench Press?

Say PR=BP or PR=BP+5, that way you can't progress until BP progresses, which is slow & solid.

BA degree. Getting an MS part time in my field but considering going for a PHD. Better than average connections but I also like to think I have good networking ability and a lot of hustle. Connections i was lucky enough to have were a bigger leg up when I graduated (during the recession) than now (where it's more ones i've made on my own).

Had I pinpointed this as what I wanted to do earlier in my college career I would've had a much easier time getting into my current field, but instead i took a bunch of summer internships that taught me what I didn't want to do. That being said I worked part time as well during the summers so it's not ilke I was simply coasting.

With any of the jobs where you just have to be reasonably smart and competent, if you figure out what you want to do, do an internship to show you're serious about it, and then someone will give you a chance vs. some other smart but inexperienced kid.

Where are all the blue collar workers? I'm not seeing any tradespeople here.

The money is good and the work isn't that bad. $37.50/hr before overtime to weld.

Supposed to be an archivist, but I'm a freelance editor. The market for both jobs isn't looking bright at all and I hate being a pencil pusher so I'm starting trade school in welding next year.

>>31616507
I know some welders here in Germany. The pay as an apprentice is literally 2,40€/hr. It obv. gets better later, but it's still a shit job in Europe. And they wonder why there's not enough young tradespeople.

They're also doing a LOT of overtime and have to buy their own equipment.
