In other news, retards die from doing retarded things every year. Just don't be a retard and drop the bar and you'll be fine. Failed reps end up on your chest, you can roll the bar off of you or tip the weights off if you're not a retard that uses collars.
if you fail a rep you can do the roll of shame. or tip it to one side and dump the weights. the only scary thing would be if i passed out reracking or tore a tendon and it landed on my neck. but failing due to fatigue is slow and theres plenty of time to think your way out
im a lot more afraid of failing during a squat and having to dump my plates on the concrete. would def fuck the concrete up, possibly crack the plates. i have some sawhorses that are a good height to use as safeties but im lazy and i hate getting them out

I would push down on the bar and slowly crush her throat
let me personally e-train you
im a talented athlete in my own right and ive got a ton of knowledge. more importantly i can tell you where to find no-bullshit info
are you a girl?
im doing this thingy right now and am on the third week. sometimes i cant do all the exercises so i need to make it a bit easier like longer rests and stuff but it seems like its about my level so I like it. I don't know what to do after it finishes though…
seems like your typical interval style workout. nothing wrong with it for someone who's just starting out. tho personally its not my favorite method of physical conditioning
dude im serious i'll e-coach you 4 free after you finish your 6 weeks if you want. im super knowledgeable and i've always wanted to experiment on someone with programming but most people are too obsessed with bro culture "fitness". we can talk about what your goals are and what is available to you
i have a great sports library built up and have decent experience in long and medium distance running, swimming, calisthenics and strength training. ive written some sport science summaries that still exist on archive.is out there somewhere if you wanna check them out
pls send power of attorney

Any job you can get without a college degree, nepotism, or vocational school, won't pay you a living wage, and you will be so disrespected by females, that you will barely be above a NEET in their mind, and literally over 99% of adult women won't date a NEET.
Ok so just get a college degree or learn a skill?
Well you need a lot of money for that, or you need to get approved for a loan. Good luck.
Even if you do that, enjoy competing against hundreds or thousands of other applications for every open position. Enjoy competing against someone's relative who knows people.
You might win in the end, and then you might get a girlfriend, your own house, and reproduce, but good luck, you will need it.
lol what bullshit
anyone willing to work can provide for themselves in the US, even in the lowest paying job. people saying otherwise are just lazy bottomfeeders

The problem people have with clearing the bar for entry into fitness is that you need meaningful goals. At a bare minimum you need to want something as specific as strength, speed, power, endurance, or aesthetics. If you only want health then just clean up your diet and start going on walks.
you must have been extreme skeletor with numbers like that>>421585
citation needed. low impact cardio is heavily underrated but one can hardly say thats all thats needed to be healthy>>421586
i disagree. i mean not with the measurable goals part, since i already hit on that in >>421516
, but the health part. see above response

>>421601>one can hardly say thats all thats needed to be healthy
Also citation needed. Remember that no one cares about an overzealous gym rat's perspective on what constitutes health. 5 minutes on Google or PubMed looking at health-related quality of life or pedometer studies will tell you plenty about walking. I hate even having this much of a conversation about it because you should already know this and the people it would actually matter for immediately stop caring once you start talking about details.
illness free =/= healthy. humans are made to be active, modern living is extremely abnormal in that regard. theres a lot of quality of life issues that are not addressed through walking. not taking your metabolism through its paces through exercise would be like never using your car long enough for the engine to warm up properly. if you dont use things as their designed you'll have problems eventually. >an overzealous gym rat's perspective
seriously? thats probably the last thing i am. i guess any activity beyond bare minimum required for survival must seem like a lot for you.

See? Now you're regurgitating broscience and this became about dick measuring instead of helping anyone. I've competed athletically on a professional level. I used to literally be paid to be good at being active. I've worked with some of the most competent coaches and doctors in the world. I'm in my 30s now, work full time and can still run a sub-7 2k or deadlift twice my bodyweight. Go take a walk, d00d.
>>421615>a basic understanding of the biological effects of exercise is bro science>being this retarded
also>professional athlete>brags about stats a highschool boy could do
hmmm. ya im sure you were a professional athlete.

You're right, I'm so sorry for calling you out on the things you challenged me about. I've only ever brought up my sports history once before, over a year ago. My experience with people like you makes me believe that you're foisting ambitions onto others because you're falling short of your own. Maybe sort out whatever is making you dogmatic and angry on the internet before you try to support someone else.

You're right again, I'm a big scary boogeyman that's embellishing my resume with stats "a highschool boy could do". You took something as simple as >>421586
, tried to discredit it, failed, and now have dragged it to this level trying to make it personal. It also sounds like you're admitting you run into this pattern of discussion a lot, maybe next time catch yourself and stop before that last step. You are the only common denominator in your interactions with others.
the embellishment part was obviously the claim to pro status..
the highschool boy stats just show you dont even know what athleticism is…
not gonna bite any more bait, i refuse to believe this level of stupidity exists.

Ironically, thinking that's unbelievable shows how little exposure you have to anything real in the athletic world. Enjoy your 20s phase where being fit is oh-so-cool and makes you feel special (and why doesn't everyone else understand how important it is?). Hope I'm wrong and you're still out there in 10 years.

Just wanted to enter this conversation and say those are some very mediocre e-stats. Were you pro-tennis or something else that doesn't require being in shape? Just curious.
That's because they're not e-stats, and you seem to have missed that they are stats after a long, permanent off-season. Ignoring your shot at tennis players, sure, I wasn't a footballer or Olympian runner. >>421639
Do whatever you're most motivated to do.
you're talking to a PRO ATHLETE with experience working with some of the most prolific doctors, coaches, and sports scientists of all time
not only does he stay in peak physical condition through his daily walks, but he can even run as quickly as freshman in track, and lift as much as anyone with a couple of months strength training can
in other words: let the expert speak.
nobody asked you for your numbers….
yet, there they are.
please stop ruining ota and be quiet already
such a bore

You accused me of being inactive and I responded with the simplest terms to explain the extent of my activity. It was obviously effective but seems to have irritated your superiority complex. Weren't you done getting baited or whatever?
not joking. if you send an email ill reply.

oh wow, what a coincidence. I gave up on working out shortly after this thread, but just restarted on week one last week. Maybe i'll manage to finish it this time haha, at least I kept the diet i started!

Ganbatte! Please do your best!
I decided to stop doing strength training and just work on stretching and improving my balance and flexibility instead.
I can do a 10 second handstand after starting from the wall now after working at it since the new year! I'm trying to follow the "Overcoming gravity" book mostly just for form stuff, I haven't bothered making an exercise workout yet even though that seems to be like 80% of the book. It had some really helpful stuff for strengthening my wrists since I was having lots of trouble with handstands at first
"weight" becomes a bad indication of body composition when you take into account body fat percentage in comparison to lean mass
you can either be 100lbs with a nice layer of fat or you can be 100lbs with nice tight muscles, or "toned" as most people would call it.
though with your particular goals it sounds like you take it up the butte and being a squishy twig is probably your goal anyway
