That feel when you work super hard and lose 40 lbs but the only person who notices, compliments, and encourages you is the person you're dating.

Friends, co-workers, family? Radio silence.

I know weight loss and fitness is supposed to be for you and no one else, but I'm feeling discouraged. Maybe I was just so fat that 40 lbs isn't a big change in my general size and shape IDK. I was feeling attractive again but not so much now.

Got another 40lbs to go. Trying to stay positive but this is hard.

I hear you. Maintaining your body is more important than maintaining you car. I use this phrase often because I work at a car bodyshop and parts supplier.

Oh this. I'm 34 and I've never been fitter or stronger. My nadir was 26 and I don't hope to be nearly so out of shape till I'm the other side of 70. I lost 140 pounds and as I said to OP no one noticed till 40 pounds in.

I work in an office where people stay in shape. I think a lot of people give up when they have kids, that's the big one. It's definitely not always logistically possible to be remain statuesque and super ripped but people just use it as an excuse to give up. I've seen people defeat it. They take it in turns to look after the kids most week evenings while the other works out or attends a dance class or plays football or whatever.

A lot of people who peak in their early 20s are the ones who actually never did try though. As soon as they stop playing sports or get a sedentry job or walk to work or there's cakes on offer that's it. I work with the fire service and they introduced fitness classes and regular tests because even firefighters would get fat. And then they'd die in fires as a result. They work 4 on 4 off so having fitness sessions and a standard forces them. Whereas previously they'd come out of basic training in amazing shape and then lose it. I'm not a firefighter but I can pass their fitness tests.

I hate the idea of "trapping" someone or being trapped. I don't expect that someone match my fitness but that they don't turn into a piece of crap is important. I want to enjoy fucking them and looking at them and not feel like I can't go anywhere because the walk is too far and I want them to really want my dick at all times. I also don't want to die young. Oh and the lady I'm seeing, the first time I pinned her arms down while fucking she actually realised how helpless she was and came there and then, all that strength has function it turns out.

Wonder if any of you meatheads on here can answer some questions I have about running.

I see a lot of training programs saying that they keep weekly mileage under 25. Why? I'm around 20-22 miles at 5days/week and feel like I could (and plan to) do more without much of a problem.

While distance/endurance running seems surmountable, I'm having trouble increasing speed. Any tips aside from fartleks? The problem I have with fartleks is I have one speed: slow. I don't have much trouble running for 50 to 60 minutes, but it is always the same speed. I need those /ana/reobic

Do long distance runners normally run without underwear? I've seen people talk about having trouble with chafing until they bought shorts with netting. It doesn't seem like this would be needed unless they're going commando. I had trouble with my inner thighs chafing when I was just wearing mesh (swishy) shorts and cotton boxer briefs, but haven't had any trouble wtih chafing since I bought more running focused shorts and still wearing the same underwear.

I've been trying to prepare for outside running during the winter. I see a big focus on shirts that wick moisture away. Normally, I wear cotton tshirts and after my runs I'm drenched. I understand I won't sweat as much on a cold, but even on a 70 degree day my chest and back are soaked through and with wick material that moisture is has to go somewhere. My shorts are supposedly fast drying and wicking, but they're always soaked through too (or is it because of my cotton underwear?). So what's the point of fast-drying wicking material on cold days if you still end up drenched in sweat?

On the bottom half of my body during winter runs, I've read that at most you need to wear tights underneath your running shorts. So am I supposed to go commando? Because as I've said above my underwear are drenched in sweat when I get done running.

On a completely subjective note, how bad is it to run in cold air? I've heard it is like daggers, from people who have never been stabbed, but yea, is it something that I'll be able to get used to in a week or two or three?

I've heard that REAL running shoes make a big difference. I'm barely an athlete, I want running to be a habit for me, but I'm never gonna be able to compete other than against myself. Do I need a $200 running shoe?

How hard is it to switch running shoes? I have a pair of Adidas that I've run in since the beginning of this summer. At the same I bought those (cause buy 1 get 1 half off, bullshit) I bought a pair of new balance that I've only run in a couple of times recently on shorter runs.

Finally, how many miles do you think I have left on my shoes? pic related

Something else that helped me was to try and run like you're running on eggshells. Ie. try to keep your foot strike as soft as possible. For me, if I'm hearing my foot strike the ground I'm probably letting my foot fall to the ground too hard.

Right now I'm not able to justify spending $100 to $200 on a pair of shoes. Both pairs of my shoes (~$70 each) are very comfortable and work well for my current routine/mileage. I'll keep it in mind and someday, maybe. Tbh, right now I still think I'm just a novice, 3 less oz. on my feet aren't gonna do more for me than improving my form, quality miles and practice over time.

Running isn't supposed to hurt. After a run: exhausted, yea. In pain, no.
Cyril Bucklefield - Sun, 06 Oct 2019 15:07:16 EST I6hKwjD9 No.95847 Reply

I only bring it up because you asked in OP. All of my shoes before have been very comfortable, I don't think it's necessarily just a weight thing either. A proper fit really can help encourage proper impact. Idk all the shoe jargon behind it but there's an upper tier of shoe beyond just being comfortable and working, in my experience. I can't go back to a shoe that just works anymore.

Just under 8 miles today. ~26 miles on the week in about 260 minutes. Missed a bunch of kettle bell workouts. I've been working towards a rather ambitious goal of around 10 to 12 hours of exercise (like 15 to 18 if I count warmup walks/stretching) a week from just the 5 or so I spend on running so it was bound to happen. Back on it next week though with some renewed focus.

Pizza, Ice Cream and Fried Chicken are in my future.

What kind of stretches would you recommend to someone just starting a routine?
Hedda Fippershaw - Sat, 07 Sep 2019 19:35:16 EST 3sPb+2MR No.95770 Reply

Absolutely essential. Impaired range of motion means you are, by definition, not fit.

World's Greatest Stretch and Bretzel are the ones I do every day. They'll hit nearly everything and you can fill in the other stretches you need.

I also do pec stretches the day after chest day-- lay on a foam roller and keep your head, shoulders and tailbone in contact with it; then put your arms out at 90 degrees and try to get your elbows to touch the ground. If you can do that easily, try to get your hands/wrists to touch the ground. I've always had extremely tense pec muscles and it's this and soft tissue work that's opened them up.

Static stretching before lifting isn't as good as dynamic stretching and activation-- you want to prep your muscles for the specific movement.

I'm in the middle of my first cut and I don't want to lose any ass muscle as I'm having trouble keeping my pants on already. I really should've known that was going to happen.

My current routine is rough on my feet and I commute by walking, so my old go-to of heel raises is out. Sad! I could heel raise 90 pounds and pretend I was a big shot for that.

What other exercises work well for the glutes?

Veggies don't really have much protein. That's why a vegetarian diet is usually frowned upon. If you want plant/soy protein eat something like oatmeal, homemade cereal, tofu, tempeh, soybean (soybean burgers are pretty good if you use the right. herbs) or chickpea...Etc.

If I wanted to maximize my benefits but minimize my risk of injury what would the best course of action be? I know about some low-impact exercise but does weight training damage anything? Does the damage incurred last a long time?

I think I workout wrong, I always hurt so bad afterwards.

So to clarify is this actual pain or just run of the mill soreness? If it’s the latter then your “pain” should decrease dramatically in a month or so of working out. But If you’re actually fucking yourself up from lifting then I would recommend dropping down the weight and really focus on proper form then work your way up. Or try some sort of body weight routine. If your pain persists after that then I would recommend seeing a doctor because well, at the risk of sounding too technical, your shit might be fucked.

I have been sooo close to a six pack like three times but have always let circumstances get out of control and ended up in a bad place.
I'm now 260 lbs and want to be at least 220 lbs to achieve this (i am a big guy)

OK so
beyond simple calorie reduction, cardio, and of course, copious amounts of lifting, what else can I do?

Two things come in mind as of particular interest, the first being carb cycling, the second being psychological tactics that I can use to motivate myself when I feel like it's not achievable.

Is it the calorie intake or is it just a single bowl/plate of a serving?

Like a bowl of oatmeal or a plate of 6 eggs?

... It's calories. I could make a salad out of ten heads of lettuce, never be able to eat the whole thing, but have it come in around 250 cals.

Or I could eat 2 tbsp of olive oil, or eat a snickers bar. Each of those is about 250 cal too.

It has nothing to do with sheer volume, although the more full you feel with fewest calories, the easier it is to stick to a diet plan.

That's the key. I can eat a 5lb bowl of salad and an hour later feel as hungry as I was before, because all that fiber just goes right through me. But if I eat half a pound of moist, fatty brisket, I'll feel bloated and full for the rest of the day.

I've been fasting on rest days (4 days/week) and eating more to make up for it on workout days for about 2 weeks, I've lost a good amount of weight since I'm at around 8000-9000 kcal deficit/week, but working out feels incredibly difficult and I'm sure I've gotten weaker. The thing is, my main goal is fat loss and secondary is strength maintenance, but if I'm going to lose too much strength I'd rather do it the old fashioned way. Any thoughts on this approach?

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that fat literally morphs into muscle. Is that what I said? I don't think that's what I said. I mean, what I had was implicating, was that by working out you would be losing fat while gaining muscle.

I can explain further if need be? Need or needn't, friend? I have the whole rest of my life ahead of me. Or is it behind me? Behind... bees. Bees are hive creatures that collect pollen. Pollen.. pollen is like plant jizz, and as we all know tree bukkake is a serious problem in some places. Places are like things, and stuff. IF we go to them, we are there. There.. there is like where, but a command instead of question.

Hey /fit.,

It's a new year and there's a massive influx of new people at my gym putting clips on the smith machine and just kind of pissing me off in general. Needless to say I'm not super amped to try and workout without any tunes. But I'm in desperate need of some new ones. I haven't really paid attention to the music scene in a while and generally just listen to podcasts instead since, like, 2012.

I was hoping some of you could give me some choice playlists or tracks so I can get properly amped and tune out the world for an hour a day without hearing the same song every 10 minutes. More into the happy hardcore/witch house thing than metal, but really anything helps at the moment. Thanks guys!

Pic unrelated but I'm riding that WK afterglow.
