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.

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.

Sorry, I wasn't aware that posting on both sites is a problem! And especially if it's something that actually works! I'm not up to date on the do's and don't's of posting.

I will be recording tonight. Ill put the 8 hour long video online for you to hear if I don't swallow, and also be running it through a program to check for the moments of activity as well.

Anonymous 14/11/05(Wed)19:22 No. 16175

OK so I've listened through an hour of it towards the end and nothing yet. No swallowing. I'll listen to the rest of it to be sure. I want to do one more video tonight to be sure.

>No swallowing.
Dude, if you're not swallowing in your sleep you've got serious medical issues it's a natural reflex! Best case you've got laryngopharyngeal reflux disease, worse case you've got throat cancer. On the off chance you've got a localised viral infection in your nervous system you better pray it doesn't make its way to your heart 'cause that can lead to sudden cardiac death. Basically, if one of you're body's natural reflexes doesn't occur you want get a full checkout ASAP! Something simple like not swallowing in your sleep or your knee not twitching when hit can quickly lead to complications if unchecked.

If it happens that you've been punched in the throat recently you can disregard everything I said, blunt force trauma can have a similar effect that normally corrects itself in a week or two.

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.

Why not just continue using the damned cycle?

Anonymous 14/11/17(Mon)03:29 No. 16565

This is hilarious. Unless there's something about it in the membership contract they can't kick you off equipment, let alone tell you to go home. That's insane. Complain to the management and/or quit.

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?

Take a day off then get back on it the next day. That's all there is to it. If you can still lift the very next day then you're not pushing hard enough.

Bro, do you even warmup before and stretch afterwards?

I was in an accident when I was younger, broke my arm and now my right wrist is rotated ~30° down its length. Been doing some free weights in front of the mirror over the last month and I've noticed it's difficult to maintain a symmetrical posture. Keeping my wrists level pushes my elbow out and pulling it in throws my wrist out of alignment.

So, quick question:
Is it better to leave my elbow out (which feels natural) or should I try and pull it in.

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)

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.

My girlfriend is very depressed, anxious, and has an eating disorder(thats gotten better with my help apparently)

anyway, I want to help her start working out and eating on a strict schedule so she doesn't ever freak out over food(eventually she can become lax)

what do you guys recommend?

i'm only a novice/intermediate lifter and my diet is "ok"

I really want to do something and save her from having to see a dietician with her psychiatrist, doctor, and psychologist.

please help.

It is really really easy.
The problem is that women are fucking autistic about their self image.

Just eat healthy stuff man. - I don't worry about over eating because i am so active.
Make 2\3 your intake of calories fruits, veggies, nuts, and oats (there are so many different types of oats, not just oat meal).
The other third should be lean meat, poultry and fish. Organic is ideal

Don't eat anything processed.
Since you are a noob i'm going to run you through what i today!
(i had the day off so i lazed around.)

6:00am - woke up hungry. Ate a cliff bar & back to sleep

9:00am - woke up, made a bowl of oatmeal, ate an apple & banana and had a Mediterranean salad

I am feeling helpful.

These are the foods you eat for ENERGY
Veggies are the corner stone of this diet. Those salads i eat are diverse and huge. (pickles olives kale random others ect)
Without the veggies don't even bother. Your body is designed to mostly intake vegetation and roots.

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.
