Tips for olympic weightlifting beginner recovering from snatch-related injury?

Currently running a 40g Fat/200g Carb/200g Protein diet, doing isolation movements this week until I can hit the gym in college next week.

Planning on giving Torokhtiy's 12 week program a go.

Anything in particular /fit/ would suggest?

DUDE you NEED MORE FAT! i would focus on eating 70-80g a day of fat from avocados and fatty fish(or fish oil supplements) for your hormones to be healthy. i would also suggest looking into carb cycling so you can be your fullest on your main training days try checking out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gicPn3nAPQ

The Ketogenic Diet 14/12/01(Mon)08:42 No. 16691 [Reply]

Hey /fit/,
After reading up on the ketogenic diet, I've come up with a couple of questions and qualms about it.
I know a couple of you here are firm adherents to the keto diet, so can you explain these please?

1- The brain works on glucose, and will have no substitute. Your body metabolizes the fats into ketone bodies, which can cause ketoacidosis if unmonitored. This state of constant mild hypoglycemia, I'm sure, leads to defects in mental function (named the "keto-mind-fog"). This is not as unsignificant as websites would have you believe, such a mind-fog would be devastating for people whose jobs require high mental output.

2- A high-fat diet means chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, and HDL; bubbles of lipids and lipoproteins in your bloodstream, transporting the fuel to wherever it is needed. The problem is, a high LDL amount is linked and causative with vascular diseases like atherosclerosis. Conversely, a high HDL is linked with a reduction in such diseases. The function of HDL is to bring fats back to the liver to be metabolized during the fasting/hunger state. Does the (presumed) increase in HDL make up for the increase in LDL? Is it even safe to have so much lipids in the bloodstream to begin with? A high fat diet increases the expression of inflammatory mediators, which leads to all sorts of health problems, and also causes insulin resistance (the pivotal point of developing metabolic syndrome).

3- Besides supplements, you can only get a certain percentage of necessary micronutrients from a ketogenic diet, like minerals, folic acid, fat-burning phytochemicals like adiponectin. Also you consume a low amount of dietary fibre. Diets rich in fibre have been shown to reduce the risks of breast and colonic cancer. While red meat (especially the processed kind) has been shown to do the opposite. Is this trade-off for better physique/weight loss favorable?

4- Just making your portions smaller (calorie counting) combined with regular exercise should work with everyone (unless they have a medical condition - though I cannot think of any). Why should people try to adapt to such a drastic change in eating routine? It might be useful from a public health perspective to promote this in countries like the US where people drink sugary "soda"s to oblivion, but the Mediterranean diet provides a much better (though perhaps not as efficient) alternative in terms of overall nutrition. Wouldn't it be better to remove simple carbohydrates (like potato starch or simply sugar in the form of sweets, chocolate bars, etc.) from the diet in such countries?

Please don't get angry with me, I'm just trying to find out if there is something I've missed.

>Contrary to popular belief, consuming a higher amount of fat (about 35 per cent of energy) is associated with a lower risk of death compared to lower intakes. However, a diet high in carbohydrates (of more than 60 per cent of energy) is related to higher mortality, although not with the risk of cardiovascular disease.
>The research on dietary fats found that they are not associated with major cardiovascular disease, but higher fat consumption was associated with lower mortality; this was seen for all major types of fats (saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and mono unsaturated fats), with saturated fats being associated with lower stroke risk. The researchers point out that, while this may appear surprising to some, these new results are consistent with several observational studies and randomized controlled trials conducted in Western countries during the last two decades.
>The large new study, when viewed in the context of most previous studies, questions the conventional beliefs about dietary fats and clinical outcomes, says Mahshid Dehghan, the lead author for the study and an investigator at PHRI.

So I have finally hit that point in my life, (almost 30) where I want to finally try to get myself in shape. I'm not worried about bodybuilding to get massive gains. I just want to feel healthier and lose some of this chub I have.

What's the best tips someone could offer me to get me started and to stick with a routine.

I'd like to honestly lose about 20 to 25 pounds.

If you have a smartphone use the MyFitnessPal App. Record your meals, increase your activity, and start eating better.

Totally get a scale and my fitness pal.

Micronutrition is the key to fight hunger. Either you get a balanced diet OR you take supplements.

I have protein powder with all that stuff added and it totally killed my hunger cravings. Naturally without any effort my first meal is at like 5 o clock. Every night 45 min before going to bed I take 2 scoops and the next day is easy.

Also a shake is perfect against hunger. So when I try to diet extreme and my hunger is killing me I just eat a protein shake and it's over.

Gym - body building feels awesome. I like the muscle stimulation feel, I like the gym I am there with 2 friends and no one wants to be the one who skips a training.

The first 6 months it's hella easy to build muscle and lose fat. While training seeing myself with a pump just motivates me more.

If you can't stick with a diet/gym - build discipline first.

Can i survive on no food and only water and vitamin suppliments? Im a fatass so i dont think my body will start eating the muscle and vitals any time soon, i also started running in the morning and at night, i cant hit the gym yet so anything else i can do at home exept running

Surviving and being healthy/feeling well are two different things, but I guess it would work. I have a feeling your body dislikes not actually processing nutrients and stuff though.

> anything else i can do at home exept running
Yeah, a lot actually. Even without weights.

Just get a small mat if you want a better surface than your floor.
Pushups and squats, situps and all things targeting big muscle groups is good to begin with.
Stretching (major muscles) is nice if you don't want stiffies in all the wrong places, too.

Hey everyone, I recently got into including boxing workouts into my workout routine. The problem is that I am dirt poor and any extra money goes to my wife and kid. Any ideas on good ways to train for free? Dont have enough for gloves or gear yet.

Boxing is the 2nd cheapest martial art.

The scam of boxing is that your coach gets 1/5 of your winnings. They're hunting for the prize fighters to get that huge payout.

The only way to get good prize fighters is to have them fight other humans, and so they lower the price just to get warm bodies into the door.

Your not there to box, you're there to train other boxers. But a great boxer has to fight good boxers to be good, so they'll train you, too.

You can find places for $5/ hour if you just look.

A few blow jobs on the side of the road can fund your entire boxing career.

Close grip hammer curls? Are they anatomically safe? I can't find any instructional videos.
And what does this variation work?

Anal skin tag removal? Anonymous 17/02/25(Sat)15:02 No. 19493 [Reply]

I need advice on something, I fear I may have made a hasty mistake.

I am in INCREDIBLE PAIN, as I followed, after about 5 days of heavy online research, instructions on how to band off an anal skin tag, that was once a hemmrhoid.

I am including pics if necessary, and I apologize in advance for stubble and for having a less-than-attractive setup. Childbirth and being 30 years old does that sometimes.

I am looking to improve the appearance of my anus and my vulva as much as possible DIY, before resorting to, if necessary, surgical procedures. This includes bleaching and eventually laser hair removal so I won't have to shave anymore... if there is any advice or suggestions in THAT area, I'd like to hear it.

But first, I have to remove a skin tag that has been steadily growing larger, RIGHT ON THE RIM OF MY ASSHOLE.

I am *fairly* confident that I have correctly banded it, and that I got it flush against the base, with nothing but healthy skin beneath the rubber band.

My issue is the pain and possible risks.

I was aware of the pain I'd experience, many users on multiple threads documenting their experiences were quite descriptive. It isn't as bad as childbirth or tearing from vagina to anus, but it is a unique radiating pain.

ER cut it off after examination and preparation.

Interesting is that the doctor said I did a good job banding it. I have anus stitches and got a needle stuck in my asshole to numb it and that shit hurt but ironically not as bad as the banding the other night.

Don't do this guys, unless you are 100% sure you can do it right and THEN go to the ER to have it removed.

Then it is not regarded as cosmetic but as an actual health reason.

I'm back, I think something may be wrong, I don't want to go to the ER unless I have to, but. I'm increasingly sore, and keep spotting blood. I'm pouring those laxative sodas drinks down my throat so I can shit easily without risking popping my stutches, but I've been examining myself out of curiosity as well as worry..

I'm seeing weird black spots and raw white flesh. What the hell is this?! I'd this an infection, should I go back and get an antibiotic shot?

Is this normal healing? My husband said it looks like some of the 'death' in the skin tag I banded made its way to the skin..

Will my body handle this and just.. heal it, or do I need this removed as well? Would the doctor in the ER have noticed this or known what to do?

I'm afraid now. I've never seen anything like this before.

I think you handled it perfectly. Seems very healthy and absolutely fine.

mental illness and fitness

firstly
• there is no such thing as mental illness
( it's a simple form of ground level witchcraft. no more than a parlour trick.)

if you've been diagnosed with mental health issues.

daily you will be visited by 'maintenance crews' which will enforce your mental illness symptoms.

these are dispellable by learning
witchcraft ( making scrolls in blood and learning a witchcraft language.) which has
the same effect as the witchcraft parlour trick that the mental health authorities use. conjouring demonic forces. but this time to fight for you as you're the one who conjured them. should be significantly more powerful than mental health authority witchcraft it is the cheapest trick there is, stays cheap because it is a business with no investment and all profit as it's business model.

• air quality

I would also recommend house plants, and multi colored lighting. Also, get off the drugs.
Currently try walking outside and doing some push ups, squats and maybe pull ups/chin ups twice a day, working my way up to 5x a day. Helps a shit ton.
I also have a Himalayan salt lamp, crystals, stones, an essential oil vaporizer, and giant granite stone sitting in my room... I was desperate.
This all started by drug use, and accidentally "coming out" (not gay but accidentally implied it) while on MDMA to my druggie close friend, because I couldn't feel it/sense the implication and there was a cute sensual girl from earlier I, once again, accidentally mimicked somewhat. I didn't think I was doing anything, but he did, and I was on MDMA so I thought "Huh, maybe I did." Led to crazy shit despite later denying his come-ons, since the answer to that question is always, positively, negative, yet for some reason the question kept being asked. This led to "mental illness". Amazing how forcing a false identity can fuck you up.

Anyway I got a pink grow light for my house plants, a yellow/orangy pink salt lamp, a multi colored (right now green) essential oil vaporizer, and a red bulb in a lamp, with a normal bulb in my closet on.

Reading some occult stuff, beginning mathematics (of which I was very active in high school), beginning programming (always wanted to do this, along with the hardware side), politics (keeping track of this presidency, and international stuff, and have a book Tragedy & Hope about the background to the current power structures), and drinking plenty of tea and coffee. Also, I do not eat junk shit and take plenty of vitamins and minerals, and will make myself some food instead, because junk makes me feel like absolute shit just thinking about it.

Eating 3x a day and drinking water/tea/vitamin water throughout the day regulates whack cycles. Focusing your mind on other shit, including aesthetic things, especially the aesthetics of emotions and people (to improve your opinion and connection to humanity, and improve your relationship to the human that you are), as well as an intellectual pursuit, and an artistic pursuit (I need to get into piano), shall do wonders.

Habit is king. If you have a routine that squeezes out the shit, rather than one that lets you steep in it like shit tea, you will always bounce back and be awesome.
I got a 3 hr/cycle system, and I keep track of what I've done on my list and what I haven't. This is a daily, unchanging, immutable list and the most important shit is on the top of the list for my well being... the order only changes with a very good reason. Once I can do the 16 items on my list every 3 hours, ~5x a day, I will have mastered a valuable skill.
