"/fit/ - Fitness" is 4chan's imageboard for weightlifting, health, and fitness.
Why do girls say they don't like when a guy is muscular?
Every guy I know who has became muscular has better facial aesthetics after they lifted weights for some time. I assume this is due to bodyfat lowering and more attention paid to their appearance
Do you guys shave your torso? Everytime I go to the each it seem like all the guys are mostly hairless.

What is /fast/?
>Fast is a thread for the discussion of intermittent fasting, fasting, water fasting, and dry fasting.
What’s the difference between intermittent fasting, water fasting, dry fasting, etc.?
>Intermittent fasting: Fasting for a certain amount of time with a short eating window. 16:8 (16 hours fasting, 8 hour eating window) is the bare minimum.
>Water fasting: Fasting with only water.
>Dry fasting: Fasting with no water. Dangerous, use with caution.
Why should I fast?
How do I safely do an extended fast?
>Take snake juice, or just supplement electrolytes.
>Potassium chloride =1 tsp (No Salt)
>Sodium chloride = 1/2 tsp (Himalayan Pink Salt)
>Sodium Bicarbonate = 1 tsp (Baking Soda)
>Magnesium Sulphate = 1/2 tsp (Food Grade Epsom Salts)
>Mix these in 2L of water and sip it throughout the day.
>[OPTIONAL] 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar and 4 tbsp lemon juice. DO NOT MIX with snake juice, drink separately.
>You can also do this if you feel lightheaded, weak, dizzy, nauseous, etc., on shorter water fasts. Don’t do this while intermittent fasting.
Won’t I go into starvation mode?
>No. The mainstream definition of starvation mode is a myth. Read the FAQ linked below for more information.
Will (something with calories) break my fast?
Can I drink coffee, tea, and diet soda? Or anything with artificial sweeteners?
>You can do whatever the fuck you want. We recommend avoiding those, sweeteners especially.
Do I need a multivitamin?

2 of these are anti social and as for the other 2 I do fine enough chatting people up at the climbing gym but how does one talk to girls at the regular gym?
Also I have a fear of rejection but it's because I overreact violently, I'm a faggot I know but is there a way to keep my cool and not get but hurt?

If I just do KB swings and not lift, will it cause imbalances? Or is it mainly a cardio-type tool so no worries? I'll be using an ab wheel too if that matters.

Hey guys I've been on this board for a couple years

•Powders are way cheaper and more efficient than "real food".
•Bulking is memery.
•Fasting is too.
•Keto is actually really beneficial.
•So is dietary cholesterol.
•Neurochemicals (epinephrine, dopamine, melatonin, and serotonin) are products of nutriments.
Cyclist here. Getting ready for race season coming up, should I even bother with legs? I did a ton of leg work all winter, which helped with my sprints, but not so much with sustained power. Leg day makes it impossible to get any kind of good riding on a bike for 1-2 days personally, and I don't wanna be sitting on my ass waiting for my legs to feel better. For now I've stopped doing legs, should I start doing 1 leg day a week just to prevent losing gains? I'm normally riding 8-12 hours per week
What is your favourite research anon?

How does /fit/ manage injuries & soreness? I woke up today and my left arm is in a shit load of pain whenever I lift it, it wasn't from lifting and I honestly have no fucking clue why it's in this much pain, but I really want to lift today and I don't know whether I should

I've read the definitive guide to body language and how to win friends and influence people but i need something on how to actually talk to someone.

It's Saturday night and I'm at P. F. Chang's. You guys aren't out destroying your gains with alcoholic beverages, are you?
Never once have I "lifted for someone else". Why would you lift for someone else? How does it feel when you lift for someone else? Do you shut off your brain and keep an image of the person or thing you're lifting for in your head?

So obviously cardio kills gains is exaggerated when you’re mileage isn’t marathoner level, but can I achieve the following stats and run up to 10 miles 3-5 days a week? 6’1” 210lbs
And how much will this increase my caloric needs? My sister is a marathoner and regularly eats entire jars of peanut butter but stays at under 130lbs and super lean (she actually had hormonal problems from having such low body fat at one point). I wanna achieve something similar, have a maintenance of over 3500 calories.
Ever since i got abs i have noticed that i became more of a douchebag. Anyone else notice a change in attitude after getting a 6 pack?
Finally hit full greenman. Took about 8 months, mostly because I only recently started focusing on pressing (3x shoulder dislocation worried me before).
Hitting The Press™ 3x a week, hope to hit lmao1pl8 soon, goal is 185 by end of year.
I've been lifting for 4 months and I'm coming up on my goal of 315 deadlift. When should I start losing weight? immediately after I hit 315? Wait for more gains? Trying to look aesthetic but kinda resigned to working at it for at least another year before I look how I want
For reference, I'm 6'2" and 230lbs
squat 300 bench 175 dead 295
seems legit, all I have to do is enter my target calories, dietary preference and macro nutrients and it auto generates a meal plan with grocery list for a week? What are your thoughts /fit/?
Anyone know how to make long arms look big from the front?
From the side they look good. And flexed looks great.
Front not so much.

At what point did you stop caring about making friends?
Lifting is inherently racist.
Persons of African heritage have had heightened muscle mass and athletic ability forcefully bred into them through years of involuntary slavery.
Now wypipo are trying to appropriate this condition as if this is something you can achieve with a few bench reps.
Lifting is essentially mocking the historical side effects of slavery, just like wearing a Native American headdress is mocking Native American customs.
Having some flexibility problems with squatting. When I get to about where the girl in the pic is, Feels like I can't hinge anymore at the knees/ankle else I'll fall over. Major flexibility problems. What stretches should I do?

>experience moderate brain injury
>concerns about how damaged my brain can be.
I was drinking a beer earlier and playing basketball fine. but when i wake from sleep is when I notice damage. moments from sleep to wake are traumatizing. I suffered immensely.
idk just wondered if you had opinion on brain injury.
I have a cheat meal once every 2 months or so. Just got some Fried Chicken with fries and some sips. What frequency do you guys have a cheat meal? What do you usually get?
I'm not a big guy and I've only started working out for like a month.
During workout I like to think a do a pretty good job lifting/running. But every fucking time I work out my arms hurt bad. My muscles are so fucking fucked the next morning that if I move them slightly from the standard retarded dinosaur position. It hurts like Tai whore sucking your sunburnt dick like it's the only sorce of oxygen left in the universe.
What the fuck am I doing wrong, I have to be doing something wrong.
Is this natural achievable?

Why does it appear Dom hasn't gained any mass at all in the last 6 years? Has he already hit his potential? (left is 2013, right is 2019)
Hello /fit/, I have recently come to realize that going Vegetarian is the true red pilled diet. Meat nowadays is saturated with estrogen and cancer causing chemicals, if you're going to live to a long age to see your progeny live on then eating meat is not the way to go. Not to mention that one of the most prominent figures in history, Adolf Hitler, was also a vegetarian. There is literally no reason to go vegetarian when there are so many benefits such as living a longer life, being healthier overall, saving the environment, saving the lives on animals and not being contaminated by left wingers putting estrogen and onions into all of the meat sources out there, and most importantly it helps us to reconnect with our redpilled ancestors.
I hope you guys actually read this and don't dismiss it on the basis of >lmao plant eater
What does the rest of /fit do after their weekend workouts? I need productive shit to do after I workout in the am.
What exactly is it about squatting that becomes so addicting after initially hating it so much?
I've been fasting for like a week mostly because I had this massive depression and I slept most of time, probably didn't eat more than 500 kcal/day (I should get like 2600 for maintenance).
So naturally I lost a shit ton of weight and I'm very weak and generally feel like shit
