>>16843 same height as you, what grew my arms the most was finding a big rock and lifting it onto my shoulder until I couldn't anymore. I also did bench/squat/deadlift/overhead press and pull ups. Haven't done a curl in my life. you can also bearhug the rock and carry it around to train legs while training arms, you drop it when your arms give out. training only arms is dumb and useless, they will become naturally strong as long as you do other exercises. >Is this natty at home or do I need to use a bourgeois gym Just find rocks and start lifting them, work up until you can shoulder a 100kg rock. I guarantee you will train everything but your chest. do pushups and dips to train chest. >>16872 what fucking meme pseudo science. You can work, train to exhaustion and read Marx. Just don't do it at the same time like with audio books.
>>17085 what the fuck

>>17086 What do you think the greeks did or dark age niggers? They fucking lifted rocks and chopped wood.
how do i stop the bases of my fingers from blistering whenever i do pull ups or farmer walks?
>>17103 you don't, you let them blister and your skin toughens. it will make your grip stronger in the long run. or you can be a woman and wear gloves.
>>17103 Buy a pumice stone and use it on the calluses as you shower.
>>17117 getting your calluses soggy or doing this will just make them more sore/hurt more in the long run. Don't do it. WHen I was a newbie starting out washing dishes was a pain because of this.
>gym closed again it's over. I don't want to do copealisthenics
>>17123 bro I've been coping with calisthenics for 6 months now.
How do I do an L-sit on my fingertips for more than a couple seconds? This shit is hard as fuck.
>>17130 props for being able to do it at all, that sounds very impressive.

Who knows this guy?
>>17177 You can’t have a solid base with those calves
>>17116 shut up prick
>>17177 lol all his days are leg days
>>17177 Why the FUCK is his left arm so much stronger than his right?
>>17201 lol he gave you good advice just wear gloves if you're a pussy
>>17177 what a huge faggot, he also looks like a manlet I want to beat the shit out of him so badly.

>>17177 he cute
>>17210 why though?
will doing SQUATS help reduce fat cells in my belly? I honestly ask,ive seen opinions on favour and against this idea on the internet,I dont know who to trust
>>17259 >will doing SQUATS help reduce fat cells in my belly? Not really but it can help reduce the amount of fat they store. Lifting will raise your metabolism by building muscle.

>>17259 I don't fucking know why people struggle with simple shit we've known since writing was invented. You cannot spot reduce body fat, it's a combination of genetics and hormones. The first place you get fat is the last place you lose it. If you gain 5 pounds and it all goes to your love handles, the only way to get rid of them is to lose 5 pounds; if you gain another 5 pounds and it goes to your belly the only way to get rid of those love handles is to lose all 10 pounds now. The only way to reduce fat (other than having it surgically removed) is to be in a caloric deficit. You can do this by decreasing your food intake or by exercising to increase caloric expenditure, what exactly you do with either of these methods doesn't matter. You can lose weight eating nothing but Oreos and Mcdonalds, just as long as you burn more than however much you ate. You can eat 5000 calories a day and loose weight if you spend 10 hours a day running burning 6000 calories. If you like squatting to the point it burns enough calories to initiate weightloss, then the answer to your question is yes. If you think a specific exercise will magically make your belly disappear or redistribute fat then no.
>>17177 Those calves are photoshopped, right? I have bigger calves and my quads are less than half the size
>>17446 Calves are weird. They are best trained for size by doing stength-endurance training rather than raw strength or the normal hypertrophy training regimes. This is why fat people and formerly fat people have huge calves. This guy probably doesn't train calves optimally, which would involve something like weighted walking/running on the balls of your feet.
>>17250 Because he is a dumb faggot that says dumb shit on the internet >Training upper body is Bourgeois. Marxists focus on training the glutes and thighs because they know the base is more important than the superstructure. What a postmodern abomination of a man holy shit he makes me so mad, he sounds like such a fucking soy regardless of his gains. Leftists talking like this IRL & online is such an embarrassment, shit like this is like a dogwhistle for soys.
>>17507 >what is a joke
>>17509 he just makes himself look like a soy.
>>17520 and you made yourself look like an autist
>>17538 Autism is high IQ
I just want to grab heavy stuff and throw them as far as possible. rocks,pieces of concrete,disks, spears.Is there any tutorial of technique on how to THROW properly? some baseball stuff?
>>17601 Learn how to use a sling or atlatl.
>>17601 Pretty sure these are all covered in track and field events. If you live in a city that has a club for that shit, join it. If you don't try finding youtube videos with beginner tips for discus, javelin throw, shotput, etc
How's it going guise? I still haven't gotten my strength back to pre-rona levels and am scared I may never. Hamstring permitting, today is a leg day with squats, lunges, box jumps, deadlifts, and shrugs/lateral delts. >>17601 Uh shot putters make themselves look silly by spinning in place but basically yea it's a full-body endeavor, toe to fingertip, with everything being used. Ankles, knees, hips, core. It's all in the twist. t. ignorant
>>17806 I've kept all my strength despite not lifting for 8 months due to corona but I lost all my definition, mad as hell because I am too busy with work to go to gym and train regularly, feel like a flabby sack of shit.
Stopping by from 4chan's /fit/ Thanks for gifting the world that wojak edit, I'm so fucking tired of /pol/ coming in and setting up shop there. Some of us just want to lift and not have obese political assholes shit up the discussion. Hammer curls, preacher curls, and regular curls all work out different areas of your bicep and this concept can be applied to other movements for a more complete workout.
>>17821 Containment boards don't work. /fit/ and /k/ became totally fucking unusable once the retards from /pol/ started showing up with their "lifting/prepping for the race war and daddy Trump" garbage.
>>17822 The chudjak however, works. It's so accurate and you know it's accurate because they get so pissed over it. /leftypol/ cut them deep and after 6+ years of them acting like the health and fitness forum is for race war prep there's finally an easy meme to just reply to them with.
>>17085 You look big... how long have you been working out for? On a side note, I heard that working out heavily makes you go bald sooner due to increased hormone production. Is it bullshit?
>>17852 no idea about the bald stuff, my hair is as good as ever but I've only been working out for like 3 years. specifically 1 year strict and 2 years on and off. The bald stuff sounds like boomer superstition to me. Steroids do make you go bald though.
>>17810 No doubt it's hard, anon. I was out of commission for about 4 months. Your metabolism changes and you have to reset the balance.
>>17852 Baldness is caused by DHT which is aromatized from testosterone so if you increase your test through working out it could affect it. If you’re really concerned, take a 5ar inhibitor like propecia or if you want to go natural supposedly saw palmetto works. And yes steroids increase the rate of baldness if you’re already predisposed to it from all the excess test in the blood, that’s why most bodybuilders are cueballs
>>17935 >steroids increase the rate of baldness if you’re already predisposed to it from all the excess test in the blood I did a pretty long cycle of Test-E way back when I was lifting competitively in college. fucking stupid I know, but at least I know I'm not pre-disposed to baldness, as I virtually zero loss approaching 30. most of the men in my family are bald except one uncle, so you can definitely win the luck of the draw. baldness research is actually rather complicated and developments are occurring all the time.
Do I really need to rest for a day in between workouts if I don't feel tired or soreness in my muscles? Or is that normal and you just wait for them to recover regardless?
>>18107 I have an unpopular opinion, but if you’re looking for serious training, just train. Some people train through soreness too, the conventional understanding of ‘lactic acid buildup’ has never been fully proven to be truly responsible for the soreness. As you get stronger you get less sore anyways. As you age you’ll get sore more often, that’s when you can worry about ‘rest days.’
>>17935 Palmetto decreases testosterone production no? Propecia/finasteride is a good idea because it doesn't affect testosterone much.
>>17085 >6'2 Holy shit you must be huge
>>17203 not all coomers are right-handed you know
>>17203 It's because hes curling his arm up n00b
