Anyone have Everett's Olympic Lifting DVD/video guide?
or Fleming's Complete Olympic Lifting, perhaps?

This is the /fit/ FAQ. You should read it.

It contains a fuckton of incredibly useful information for anyone seeking to improve their physical fitness.

If you post a question which has already been answered in this FAQ, don't be surprised if you find your post mocked, saged, or missing.

It's here for a reason.

Credit belongs to ZigCat for the original FAQ, with small amendments by /fit/ as a whole. RIP ZC.

Gym Trainer isn't being fair , what to do ?

i joined this gym near my house , and the trainers there won't give my fair time on the equipment.

its been 6 days since i joined there, and i only used the Tread mill 2ce :/

the trainer barley notices me at all ,i don't even know if i'm doing it right.

Today i just did some stretchings and warmed up a bit , after 20 mins on the cycle , a group(4-5) of other female members arrived.

since all the treadmill was occupied i asked him i'll work on the light weights till the Treadmill is free .But he says , you have done enough for today ,better take go home and have some rest.

>The trainer barley notices me at all, I don't even know if I'm doing it right
Have you actually signed up for a training program or have you just purchased a basic membership? To me it sounds like you've only signed up for the basic package which is mostly using the equipment on a first-come first served basis (with a side of peer pressure/reservations) and a bit of basic guidance so you don't cause an accident they could be liable for.

If you have signed up for a trainer then do what >>15256 says. In addition to this I'd start keeping a diary of what you've been doing, duration/reps/etc. make a note of which trainers you've worked with and when you've got a few weeks logged if things still haven't improved approach the gym manager and tell him you're planning to terminate your membership, explain your reasoning and show him the evidence.

>i'm going to work out on my own . what should i say to him when he tells me to go home?
Set yourself a stretch-goal for the session, if he tells you to leave tell him your goal and keep going till you reach it. If he insists (it's too much) ask him why and what the best way to achieve it is, make him work with you. Trainers see a lot of people who join for a few weeks then give up, if they see you're making a dedicated effort to work out they might just show a little enthusiasm and work with you more.

Hey 7chan.

So, i got in a gym last Friday, because i want to stop being a beta faggot and get sum fuk, and i think that being fit will help a bit atleast.

I started friday with arms and legs, all good, with 5K weights on each arm, all good, on some routines i had a hard time doing it, but i did gr8.

Then yesterday, i had to do the same thing again, in 3 sets of 15 reps each, and after 10 reps on the first set i just couldn't physically bring my darn arms up to lift the weight, it was really embarrasing, struggling trying to bring up a 5kilo weight up.

Then the coach/trainer gym guy toldme to help my lifting arm to bring the weight up with my free hand, but even then i was struggling, when the first day i did that kind of training i could do it normal, with one hand, with very little problem

Now i try to lift my arms up alone, with no weight at all and i have a hard time doing it too, i feel weaker than when i started going to the gym, and its really embarassing struggling with very small(5k)weights.

Is there anything i can do at home to help my muscles rest faster or something?

TL;DR I just got to the gym, and i'm weaker than when i started and i can't do my reps, what do i do?

When your arms are that tired you know you did a good job. It should take a while but eventually your arms should take less time to recover after each workout.

Dont train the same muscle group every day, leave 1 day between, IE: If you work your arms on Monday, dont work it again til wednesday

Anonymous 14/09/25(Thu)23:40 No. 15577

I've had the same issue when I first did my "leg day."

I've read that the reason your muscles feel weaker or unresponsive is due to high levels of lactic acid created during your previous workout. The acid dissipates after a while, but while it's there it blocks signals to your nerves from your brain so you aren't able to use your muscles as ably as you normally would.

I have a theory that all my ailments like frequently recurring flus, irritable bowel, etc. derive from my tonsils and the swallowing of bacteria that fester in my mouth overnight when I wake up. I have the mouth issue resolved mostly through mouthwash and brushing teeth which I take and do before bed and in the morning, but the tonsils are a problem. I know they are deep pockets with too many folds or something which accumulate debris and pave the way for that awful smell that always lingers in the back of your throat if you open things up a certain way. My bedroom stinks in the morning because of it. It is just foul. And my body must have a sensitive response to the bacteria which the body quickly remove once ingested by fluid-like passing of fecal matter.

How do I dig deep into the tonsils regularly to clean? I know, I know,


is what everyone will give me, but it seems to only scratch a bit of the surface and nothing deep into it. I want to go deep and remove everything to feel alive for once. Is there professional tonsil cleaning offered somewhere that cleans everything?

For the record, I've already noticed that my shit solider by regularly washing out my mouth with bacteria-killing fluid.

Make sure to go to an allergist and get tested, I was having throat infections almost every month until I discovered that I was allergic to A LOT OF STUFF.

Follow up: With the mouthwash I've used it to now wash every single crevice in my mouth. I bring the liquid to uncomfortable places like on the very top of the gums and bottom where the skin folds over to the other side. My shit isn't liquid anymore.

To all who have back-up issues and runs issues day in and day out: Consider this. It's the bacteria in your mouth overnight and the swallowing of them. You don't know that you're sensitive to them. I only know this because moments after I wake up I get a sensation of wanting to puke intensely. I started testing around and realized after 20 years of experiencing this nauseation after I get up that this is the culprit and I'm actually extremely sensitive to it.

Brush you teeth, sides and tongue, thoroughly and wash your mouth with strong mouth wash before and after bed. You're absolutely welcome.

I recently got a copy of the charles atlas workout, I Was wondering does anyone think this workout is still relevant today? Some of it makes sense, other parts I feel I can rip out of the book and toss it. I mean a Section on Intestinal health, a section on how to stay clean, Id like everyone criticism.

Tl:dr: is the charles atlas workout a waste of time?

I'm thinking about making the cheapest viable food possible, that will still sustain me.

So i'm thinking high fiber oatz mixed with a bit of protein powder. Now this is what i actually came to ask you about: Will protein powder deteriorate if cooked with the oatz?
I assume it won't, but i'd like to know if it's sensible to use it in regular poor mans cooking to get some cheap protein in a meal.
Oatz n protes are the cheapest and most viable poor mans food i can think of.
Will it work flawlessly? Keep in mind, i'll have a sip of vitamins each morning too, i figure that will be cheaper in the long run, compared to buying fresh fruit n shit.
