>still can't break parallel

Look I don't care if hes a midget and I don't care if thats a ton of weight that would shatter my spine you want credit actually do the lift


Due to leverage shorter people have a strength advantage at the same weight. Its also easier for them to build noticeable muscle mass aka look swole. Still as a 5'9" king of manlets I would trade some of my gains for a couple more inches in a heartbeat.

It's summertime and it's too hot to do anything at all outside except at night and the morning. Only option is to do workouts in my room until I can afford a gym in a couple weeks. Anyone know any exercises I can do in my room? Especially exercises that don't cause the door and the wall to shake and bother everyone in the house?

Since this thread is back up, summed up crossfit shit reasons are:

<everyone works out with the same weight you just go for best time, so the new guy and the vet are both squatting 1 pl8 50 times

<at least here its fucking expensive like 150+ a month for "unlimited sessions"

<you cant really use the gym as a standard lifting gym on your downtime

<the whole crossfit culture and dumb posers who partake

>if your a lanklet you will be better off than anyone else

>once you know the routines you can pretty much do it at home with some equipment

<highest injury rate out of any weightlifting activity

<assault bike

Went with an uncle to a crossfit gym a couple of times. We did the whole aerobics + weightlifting stuff, it was different every time we went. That was honestly very hard cardio training, I was a sweating mess, this shit was hard man. The weightlifting aspect seemed suboptimal though. It was some sort of full body training where you did every exercise like it was cardio. It seemed suboptimal to me because they made me do one set of like 30 reps instead of breaking it into sets, and it seemed like the focus was more on getting 30 reps instead of using a weight that was hard for you or the quality of reps.

I noticed that there were a couple of strong jacked guys that were doing there own thing in a corner. They were doing heavy deadlifts (about 3 plate?) for low rep sets.

Does crossfit have different styles of training? It looked like the class had to do meme training while to jacked boys were following doing sort of real powerlifting.

Is “functional strength” a meme, or is there something to it? Sounds like a buzz word to me.

304553  No.142960

Functional strength means lifting things the way you would in real life situations, like large irregularly shaped boxes in a warehouse, or rolls of material in a manufacturing job. Machines that control the way you lift only exercise very specific muscle groups by making it physically impossible to utilize others. Compound lifts with free weights build functional strength because they exercise many muscle groups and your ability to stabilize what you're holding. You're a fucking idiot for not figuring this out.

If you would live in a countryside, functional strength would really come in handy, when you have to help others. Just this winter, had to carry to the tractor and basically deadlift a half axel with it's housing in place, in the middle of a forest, weighting somewhere aroud 100kg.

But if you live in a city and you don't do physically demanding stuff on a daily basis, then you probably don't need that. In my opinion, you have to develop your overall muscle strength, not just few selected muscle groups.

35e9fc  No.142968

Well, fuck you too, dick. I actually exclusively do compound lifts, so I know about the importance of stabilizers. But the idea that isolation movements have no functional purpose is just absurd. I think they have some carry over into the real world, but it just depends on what you’re doing.

Then there’s the case where a guy doesn’t do full ROM, but they gain some strength by doing so. If he only has to lift something off the ground for a quarter rep of a deadlift, that’s functional for HIM. That was the fucking point of my post, you god damn dick. Whether a particular training mode is functional is contextual to the person’s circumstances. Go jump off a cliff.


I live in a city, but I started lifting weights because my back was starting to hurt at my old office job. So I didn’t and still don’t lift heavy lifts outside of the gym, but simply having better posture and no back pain is a major benefit. Weightlifting of all sorts will build bone density, so that gives you more protection from injuries. So ya, I agree that compound lifts have the most utility because they work multiple muscle groups and stabilizers, but any muscle and strength growth is going to be “functional” in some sense.

35e9fc  No.142969

I’m aspiring to be an Oympic-style weightlifter, but I’m too broke to afford an OLY coach. Any tips, diet advice, and programs would be nice.

My gym has an Olympic platform with bumper plates and all. I can only do a 70 pound (32kg) snatch and a 90 pound (42kg) clean & jerk. I just try to imitate what I see other weightlifters doing, but they are probably making it look easier than it really is.

Figure out how wide your hand position on the bar should be before you do anything at all. For snatches your arms should be wide enough to raise the bar so it will touch the hip bones while standing.

I don't pay much attention to my diet, because I spend most of my time in gym or doing stuff outside but here's my basic diet.


4-5 egg omelette,

~100g oatmeal with milk

200g cottage cheese

0.5l green tea

Some sandwiches


Some kind of a soup

200g Rice/Buckwheat

Pork/chicken/fish meat


0.5l milk

Some eggs

Semolina porridge

200g cottage cheese

I don't eat heavy past 20:00. I drink about 1.5l of water every day. Diet includes fruits daily. My diet varies weekly, but this is in general. I don't know how much calories it is, tbh. Also, I practically don't use sugar in my diet and I add horseradish or russian mustard to cottage cheese.

Nuchan worships him ironically, they, of course, think he is a meme.

I generally dislike ZYZZ for giving people who do roids a bad reputation. He is literally that one loser who went on taking countless drugs without thinking about it twice only to die like a heroin addict. I generally have a dislike for people who use steroids without been somewhat well trained. Steroids are either for people who want to compete or simply want a better life and don't plan on having kids.

yes, you can order teeth whitening trays+gel online that actually work, ~$150-180. ideally, you would get the trays fitted and ready to go and then start whitening right after a dental cleaning

brushing will not whiten your teeth, it will only help prevent them from yellowing further. whitening gel works though, I assure you. otherwise, all the ASMR and streamer sluts, female e-celebs of all kinds wouldn't have perfect sparkly white teeth. I've used it and there's a visibly noticable difference after one evening with the trays in

f3d4c1  No.142946

Teeth eventually yellow as the enamel on it progressively thins with age and brushing revealing more of the yellow dentin underneath. You can use teeth whitening kits to bleach the underlying layer and make them whiter. Just make sure to use remineralization gel to help fight the sensitivity that will invariably occur afterwards.
