Anyone got something from Reactive Training Systems? I already got the Reactive Training Manual.

I am thinking RTS-Coaching for example.

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.

Talk to me about muscle ups vs pullups.

also, when doing pullups, is it bad to swing your legs a bit to give you momentum?

as above posters have said you can kip a bit to progress, but if your a bigger build i would be careful as it puts a fair bit of load on your wrists.

Reminds me of those little kids toys you had as a kid with a monkey on a bar and it kipped when you pressed the button.

What a pathetic excuse for a sport fro people who have no form.

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.

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.

You do know there's more than one cause of IBS right?

Anonymous 14/10/20(Mon)07:56 No. 15907

Well considering how there is not yet a way to detect the cause at all, why would I believe that there are numerous causes and not just one? Just try it my way for a bit. Please.

planks Anonymous 14/03/07(Fri)02:59 No. 13524 [Reply]

So, I'm into bodyweight and have a few questions on planks.
I've been following the progression on eldiablo666, and have finished it so far. I've also have done some harder versions I myself invented, but I guess this could be dangerous, so I came for advice on how to progress from here. Also, I've found that not breathing natural but putting more focus on muscle contraction had lead to better and faster results in my case; I'm also concerned about the safety of this practice. Finally, what about planking for more than 1 minute? It's also discouraged by many, but I don't see why.
Anyway, I don't wanna hurt myself and want to progress on this exercises as they are leading to fast and noticeable increase in my general strength, so please share any experiences or ideas you may have on the matter. Thanks in advance.

I guess you meant "dragon flags". I'm into them too, but I don't do them daily, and a plank is something one can do every day after hes workout.
I won't exceed the minute for that long then, that thing you heard sounds like something reasonable.

abs routines Alesov 14/10/22(Wed)19:15 No. 15938

Planking, just like all abs/core exercises, has a limited effect on the visual side of your core/abs. Once your body grows accustomed to the routine you're doing it's practically useless unless you tweak the intensity of your workout (e.i. shorten rest periods, go through reps fast and explosively, increase volume) but the downside of this is that you can only intensify your workout to the kinetic/cardiovascular limits imposed by your body.
That's why more advanced gym-goers/athletes consider and have always considered core workouts as a supplement to lifting/training and not a standalone routine. You wont have much luck shaping out your abs by doing core routines alone, unless perhaps your metabolism is crazy fast (which is the case with teens which is why teens get lean looking abs at such little effort).
I had a problem of converting gigantic volume of core work I was doing into a lean stomach but to no avail. I used to do over 1000 reps combined into 10+ different core exercises and even doing 2-3 routines a day and with time as my body grew more resilient I had to increase the input and it naturally took more and more time going thru my daily routine. At some point it just became unsustainable so I needed to figure out a more practical method to work my abs.

To cut the story short, my advice would be to incorporate your 10-15 min core routine after workout sessions at gym or after sports activity. And also do HIIT of say 20 mins after abs routine because without some cardio work you cannot have great looking fat-free abs. And of course tweak your daily calorie intake a bit, cut out on sugary shit and stuff. This has helped me get the fat levels down so my abs can be revealed.

P.S. crunches are maybe the worst exercise you can do for your abs as it tolls your lower back more than it works your abs and can pose a serious health threat in the long run. Leg raises, mountain climbers for instance activate your entire core so no need for gazillion of different abs exercises (unless you need variety after some time).

Picture of my abs very recent and very related.

Evening gents,

I'm doing a little experiment just now in starving/fasting. I've been eating about 200-300 calories a day for the last three days. I'm wondering if there are any things I absolutely cannot do without, if I want to do this for perhaps 2 or 3 weeks. Or does my body have enough reserves of vitamins to last that long?


pic related, it's how I will look if I keep this up for 4 months (not that I have any intention of doing that)

Anonymous 14/08/20(Wed)07:51 No. 15002

You really ought to be taking Vitamins every day, and drinking/eating the standard 1g of brotein/kg of bodyweight, otherwise enjoy being flabby.

But yeah, there's no reason you can't go a couple of weeks on whey/water shakes and vitamin pills, you'll just be lethargic as fuck.

Anonymous 14/08/28(Thu)19:57 No. 15074

starving is counter productive. your metabolism gets all fucked and you go into calorie preservation mode. then when you do eat again your body stores more fat.

just exercise and eat healthy at regular intervals. there's no magic cheat code.

you can go 60 days without eating

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?

It is cool for nostalgia purposes but that is about it. It is not that his program is necessarily "bad" it is just that nowadays there are so many better programs out there.

It is kind of like if you wanted to be a computer programmer. Would you want to start out with a language like ALGOL or a language like C++

you don't have to live vegan if you want to live healthier and lose weight, just control your eating habits, meat is healthy at all, just reduce the amount of fat you eat faggot, might just go running or snort amphetamines

Anonymous 14/10/12(Sun)22:23 No. 15795

keto was great for me because it reduced my appetite (which reduced my calorie intake) and the food I've eaten has been delicious. I also had increased energy levels, which was the opposite of how I felt as a (now-former) vegetarian "for health reasons". (Veganism was a million times worse!)

think of it this way: you can have fats (keto) or carbs (veg*), but you can't have both at the same time or it'll mess you up.

I've been following my own plan for less than 2 months and have lost over 35 lbs without increasing exercise (due to unrelated injury).

best of luck in your weight loss journey!
