Stop asking questions and go lift.

My girl doesn't talk to me as much and hangs around with other men a lot. How can I keep my frame and get her to like me?

You are unattractive to her. Stop talking to her and go lift.

My boss pushes me around and walks all over me at work. How do I stand up for myself?

You look like a pushover and act like one. Go lift. And stop stumbling over your words, say what you want to say. People will respect you more.

Women don't give me any Iois, how do I get their attention?

You become attractive. Go lift.

I haven't ever gotten laid and I used to post on incel forums. How do I break out of my negative mindset?

You didn't get laid because you have low SMV. Fix that. Go lift.

Here's this post about the dangers of feminis-

We know already. You can't do anything about it. Go lift.

I'm suici-

Go lift. Lifting increases endorphins and makes you happier. You are unhappy because you passively watch life pass you by and do nothing to enjoy it. Stop getting trapped in negative thinking and change your circumstances.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results - Einstein

You keep asking questions, you keep wondering why you aren't getting results. You've skimmed past the sidebar, you laughed at GayLubeOil posts, why havent you gotten pussy on demand yet?

It's because you still act like a beta loser. And before you think 'oh he means everyone but me.' I absolutely mean you. Women aren't psychics, they can't divine some inner-alpha hidden underneath your pounds of fat or your visible flesh and bones. Women don't find you attractive. Some people can get laid otherwise, but the Redpill was started because it's easier to get jacked and have women wanna fuck you immediately than to memorize some shitty negs a retard wearing a Dr.Suess hat made up.

I'm getting tired of the answer to every question in asktrp being, 'youre a beta faggot who is unattractive.' I'm getting tired of every post an endorsed contributor makes being challenged by incels because 'haha he hates women, anger phase much?' you are not redpilled, and your not even bluepilled. You're a clear pill, which is even worse because you know what steps you need to take and yet you ignore them.

Stop talking.

Go lift.

I appreciate this post, the problem is that those you're talking to won't pay attention.

I'm not sure where the latest influx came from, but 90% of posts in asktrp these days are guys that haven't read the sidebar and don't intend to.

I disagree with you, man. Last year I got out of a blue pill relationship and had awful self esteem and 0 fitness. I started checking out these posts and they honestly motivated me. I'm lifting 6 times a week now and currently have 2 plates spinning. If it wasn't for posts like these, I don't know where I'd be. Ultimately I am responsible for how awesome I am now, but these types of posts were the catalyst. Even if they reach one person, I think it's a job well done.

48 upvotesToiletPaperPringles3 months ago

There’s people that argue against lifting?

39 upvotesyungassed3 months ago

I haven't seen flat out oppose it but rather argue that it is not essential if you're staying active with another sport. TRP agrues it is pillar regardless of what other sports you are doing for a multitude of reasons. It allows you set regular objective goals that you can work towards and achieve which build a mental framework of success and achieve that flows in other parts of your life.

They say there sport is enough to say healthy and kept in shape so they don't need to lift. Its typically on said but someone that has never lifted before. There is a reason why all the top sports pro have a strength training program along side their sport specific one.

17 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 months ago

Idc what other sport you do, you need to lift. Broadens you’re shoulders, thickens your arms and boosts your testosterone.

It’s literally the easiest thing you can do to improve you life and makes getting cunt 100x easier.

-11 upvotesmisfitmaniacc3 months ago

Lifting does not "broaden your shoulders" to any meaningful degree unless you're on gear, nor is it an "easy fix". Natural lifters typically dont look much different clothed than average people. Funny to see such a blue pilled post on a red pilled board. Lift for health and improvement sure, but you're kidding yourself if you think you're going to turn into some cunt crushing viking with out gear if you're born with a thin bone structure.

11 upvotesBusterVadge3 months ago

I've been lifting for about 3 years now. Super thin bone structure, have been skinny all my life and I can tell you 100% that you can tell a difference fully clothed. My facial structure has even changed a bit (gotten more muscular maybe).

I'll never be a huge beast, but I get compliments a lot. And you're right, it wasn't easy. It took a long time before I was able to make meaningful progress with my genetics.

8 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 months ago

You can build up muscle around your shoulders, which makes you look broader. You can tell what guys lift and what guys don’t by looking at their shoulders.

It’s pretty blue pill to think you can’t put on a reasonable amount of muscle naturally.

"Lifting" is also a catch all term.

Lift. Run. Calisthenics. Do what gets you fit and makes you more physically appealing.

Do it. Dont talk about it. Brag about it. Contemplate it. And dont - for the love of the gods do not - wait until you feel motivated.

Just. Go. Do. It.

Considering the fact that the obesity epidemic is getting worst not in just America, but all over the world. The availability of cheap carbs and sugars and how readily available it is just shows how we are at this point.

In any case, there should be less competition and more room for you to grow. Disregard the crabs in the bucket and continue with your lifts.

14 upvotesDerDroogie3 months ago

Being jacked means you are taking ‘some’ control of your life. There’s more than that of course, such as your mission, competence in your field, personal grooming, social skills and other things that will increase your SMV.

Next issue is when you’ve invested that much in yourself, women will smell that you’re a catch.

You’ll be picking them, not the other way around.

36 upvotesStrike483 months ago

That's not gonna happen. Lifting takes work and not everyone is down to put that work in. Enjoy the benefits of being one of the few.

Also, outside of the gym and active hobbies, go around your city and look at your average dudes. 90% of them look like absolute shit. There is no great scale competition

Not going to happen. Not in our lifetime. The ratio of people that know, believe, and adhere to RP is 0.01% and that's being super fucking generous.

Can confirm. A lot of guys at Clemson University are jacked and fit. The guys at the New York community college I transferred from were mostly skinnyfat or slightly out of shape hipsters. This was the case with the girls too. I was amazed at the stark difference.

Is this just because South Carolina is a red state and therefore less cucked by fat acceptance and other leftist body positivity memes, or is there another reason? Explain this trend.

1 upvotes_DeezNuts714_2 months ago

Might have a correlation with wealth. Most people who go to schools like Clemson come from middle to upper class families, which tend to care about fitness and health.

what happens when we all start lifting and the bar gets higher?

As far as I'm concerned that isn't something coming in the future, It's already happened. In my area I look around and all you see are people who play in live bands. Relaxed longer haired surfer type people and football ingrained into the culture. Jacked with tattoos mad haircut, cool hobbies and good clothes all just come standard issue.

7 upvotesElectronicStrain883 months ago

To be honest, going to the gym and doing the actual lifting is just the first step. When I look at most guys in my gym, they do not have a nice body. The number of guys that lift is small and the number of guys that are jacked is even lower.

3 upvotesthrowaway-aa23 months ago

FACTS. Most guys in the gym don’t know what the fuck they’re doing. Another guy who works out, so he actually gets it, rather than a lot of you idiots. Dudes doing nothing but benching, quarter squats, no one deadlifts or does overhead presses. I look more jacked even as a novice lifter (by powerlifting standards) than a lot of these idiots. So no, even if everyone lifted (again, not going to happen), most people aren’t going to look the best they can.

37 upvotesthrowaway-aa23 months ago

hell no. From someone who has done TONS of game, more than most men will ever do in this sub... game is not just as important. The first step in this journey is frame, confidence, happiness, becoming powerful amongst other men, and becoming attractive amongst women. Lifting is this step. Game ONLY helps you get women, and good luck if you don't have the confidence or the requisite looks.. you're going to spin your wheels for days, weeks, and months. From someone who spun their wheels listening to people who said this shit... if I could do one fucking thing, I'd go back and just lift. Game is important but not nearly as important as lifting, not even close.

3 upvotesdracoj213 months ago

5 upvotesthrowaway-aa23 months ago

Who says that the path of learning game is guaranteed? Do you assume every guy that learns the skill of game is even successful? Even for people that run game, there is a large swath of acknowledgement that most people attempting or running game are wasting their time. Let’s also talk about the fact that most guys that get successful have a strong group of people to go out with. So now you have to coordinate schedules with people, and stay out later than you normally would. The KICKER, is that most of the people who are successful in these groups, ALREADY look good.

I’ll say it again: none of you motherfuckers have ran games like me. The process of game is an astronomical time sink, with very little guarantee that you’ll get even slightly good. Combine that with the fact that, when you approach hundreds / thousands of girls, you get to next phase (number / date / sex) by very thin margins, and so improving your looks and confidence has such an incredible impact. Let’s also remember that the skill of game is something that easily becomes rusty. You don’t use it for 2 months, and you will lose a lot of that juice.

Long story short: take it from someone who gamed for years in my community, who saw the success of other gamers. The ones that had success, are either the ones that focus only on that (gaming 6-7 days a week), or the guys who are borderline naturals with women, or the ones who have been in it for years without rest, or the guys who already have a defined physique.

Again, it’s not that I’m saying game is useless. You’re all getting this wrong. But it’s usefulness, reliability, isn’t that of weight lifting. PERIOD. you don’t see “learn game” as rule 0 or 1 in the sidebar do you?

You learn to lift, so that you’re not out here wasting time gaming women with short attention spans. It’s something that... if you really care about it, you can’t really mess up, you can bench 2 plates, squat 3 plates, and deadlift 4 plates in a year, and will magnify ANY game you want to run anyway.

Again..... I’ll say it again. Game isn’t useless. But lifting is so much more important.

2 upvotesthrowaway-aa23 months ago

You practically didn’t read what I wrote. Go ask yourself why lifting is the first thing this sub recommends you do. Consider that RSDTyler picks up women as his career fuck face. Valuable men don’t have time to game 1-3 hours a day, which is WHAT THEY SUGGEST BY THE WAY, along with most people good at game. Again, I know more about this than you, and you all continue to make bad arguments, “without” responding to what I wrote.... I swear some of you people are beyond lost.

3 upvotesRedgrin-Grumbolt3 months ago

Lifting will move you from zero to minimum pussy, and as you progress raise the bar of minimum. Game is how you unlock plating and fucking the bitches you actually want, as opposed to whoever is keen to fuck cause you look good enough.

1 upvotesthrowaway-aa23 months ago

So why isn’t game suggested as the first rule? I’ll leave that as an exercise for you to answer.

3 upvotesRedgrin-Grumbolt3 months ago

IMO, because lifting makes you better whereas game makes you able to make bitches think you're better. Game is a lot of fake it til you make it, whereas with lifting you're learning how to work hard to make yourself better, it's a superior activity to do first if only because noob gains make fake it til you make it easier anyway, and in the long run is superior because you'll start to see the reward of long term hard work raising your SMV. It's not just looking better that makes lifting critical. I'm biased as fuck anyway because my career requires me to be physically capable and therefore lifting isn't just for bitches but for myself.

1 upvotesRedpiller773 months ago

Game is everything. If your game is good enough you can be a fat fuck and get the best pussy. Thing is, it is way easier to go lift that become a Game God.

19 upvotesVisiblePlan [OP]3 months ago

Game is important, but for a newbie you need to lay a foundation before putting up the walls.

1 upvotesBuzzLightGear3213 months ago

I think lifting comes first since you can quantity your progress and your room left to grow. If you spend 1 year lifting and don't bench 2 plates, you fucked up. Hard to quantity game like that. Holding newbies to account is the most important.

15 upvotesthrowaway-aa23 months ago

You're being generous. Even if you couldn't bench 2 plates at the end of year, lifting would still be more valuable. What most men don't realize, is that game is a manifestation of a valuable man. A Don Juan if you will (read Book of Pook if you don't get this by now). Learning game is helpful, but it's always going to be the "fake it till you make it" of a valuable man. Rather than faking confidence in yourself, you can lift and be confident for a reason. Rather than assume yourself attractive (which will only get you so far), lifting will make you attractive. Rather than parading as someone who is strong mentally and physically, lifting will give you those things. It has nothing to do with being able to quantify it or not. It's the decision to actually "become" attractive and powerful, rather than learning tricks to convince women you are.

Now that being said, game to a man who has lifted, is a lot more powerful. It's making up for all the lost time when he didn't lift, and give him the mindframe he would have gotten, had he lifted. It'll teach you to capitalize more off the interest women will give you, now that you don't look like a skinny child. But lifting and becoming powerful comes first.... has nothing to do with quantification.

One of the things that you will eventually notice is that girls will pay more attention to you, simply due to your physique, just say no a lot and do things you want to do and dont ask for validation. When I did this for the first time I had girls throwing themselves at me and at some point you just fail to resist their advances and get laid. I admit this isn't like gold advice but it will work long term.

I agree with you fully. Lifting is important (but sadly wrestling season is starting so I gotta go lean for a couple months). However, my friends who have dad bods tend to do better than I do with girls (we’re in high school). Why do you think that is? My one friend has a dad bod and acne but he talks to girls who he himself deems to be “out of his league”. I believe it is because of his high charisma and humor. I’m more muscular than he is (yet I’ve been cursed with a fully grown 5’5 140 lbs. body) so what do you think I can do when lifting seems to not be enough?

It's tough but you'll have to accept that teenage girls don't know what they want and are more concerned with the social hierarchy in their group of friends/ the high school than anything else. If you be resilient and keep lifting and studying/learning you will be surprised how well you will do once you are at college or at parties/bars and clubs. Have faith and don't worry about petty high school dramas.

I have had my own business now, but before I did, I worked for a company with a "chain of command."

One of the top guys was a real jerk. He was real mean to the OTHER young workers, but not me so much.

One day, he was yelling at them for something stupid. And then he started yelling at me about something that wasn't even my job to do.

There were about 10 people watching.

Rather than taking it, I got in his face and told him never to talk to me that way.

I could see his face twitch with fear and he had a shocked look on his face. He repeated his command, and I told him again, "don't talk to me that way."

He backed off. Needless to say, I didn't do what he was asking. I was ready to get fired right there on the spot rather than being disrespected.

Not only was I ready to get fired, but I was ready to straight up kick his ass right there.

He never reported the incident to the couple of "higher ups." I didn't get in any trouble for it. He also apologized later.

I have been following this advice. Over a year lifting, some gains already despite adverse skinny-fat genetics. However the sex is nowhere to be seen.

I am 30, I am giving lifting ten years give or take to work its magic with the opposite sex... if by age 40 nothing has changed I'm out. I might keep doing some pushups at home as a token legacy effort, but no more.

By the way, I am also suicidal and in my case lifting does not help with that at all.

My two cents.

Take partner dancing lessons. It will shock you out of your malaise. There's nothing like having a dozen or more young women in your arms in one night, swaying to the music to get you back in touch with being a man. No lifting required, but if you do that's all the better.

Most guys are scared to death to take dance lessons, but since you're already suicidal you got nothing to lose ;-)

Learn to dance and they will chase you down and fuck your brains out and I'm not exaggerating. And you don't have to be Chad or Tyrone. You do need good grooming and manners. There's 2 or 3 women for every guy in most dance halls. They WANT you to have fun and learn to dance. Women under 30 tend to like swing dance (my favorite) and latin dances. The dance scene in your area may vary. Don't waste a minute with any kind of free style dance, dancing is a contact sport.

And btw, you don't need a partner to go to a dance with lessons. You don't want one, you want to be seen as single. Typically there's a lesson before the dance starts, and everyone rotates through partners as the instructors tell you everything you need to know. It's one smiling woman after another. And forget game and pua tactics, look at it as a form of play with friends. That's the attitude that will have them all over you. Put your thirsty need on the back burner while you get comfortable and learn the ropes. Trust me on this.

And finally, dancing will do something for your confidence you can't even imagine right now. It de-sensitizes you to being in close physical contact with attractive women you don't know who aren't a date. Over time you will learn to relax with them in your arms. This is a very important point. There's no other socially acceptable way to experience this in modern society. It has huge lifetime benefits for a guy. Good luck.

2 upvotesOscar_Cc3 months ago

Pro-tip:

Don't wear any scented products like aftershave or deodorant. Unscented deodorant is available but you have to look for it. Wear freshly washed clothes and take a shower right before going to the dance. If you stink of tobacco or alcohol, poor dental hygiene or anything else, you'll repel women like water off a duck.

Try doing explosive movements in the gym. I started to plateau and I made that one change, while also getting at least 1.25g of protein for every lb of body weight every day for my macro goals. After that I started blasting off again into gainz city.

Just make sure the concentric part of the lift you are lifting as hard and FAST as you can, then the come down make a controlled 2 seconds, then explode again. Reps at 12 sets at 4 to maximize muscle mass.

I have good friends and a good family, but no income of my own right now. I am preparing an important exam that will take place in January, if I pass I get a good job, if I fail I will have to actively look for one (high unemployment here in Spain). Of course having no job is a serious drawback for dating. I live with my parents, which here is way way more common than in America, but after a certain age (I'm 30 at the moment) you stand out, and not positively.

Other than studying I have multiple things to do, mainly reading and videogames, although I am losing interest in gaming compared with some years ago. I keep doing it because it is an activity that requires total concentration, and therefore I am able to shut out any negative thoughts in a way that reading does not allow. Recently I have been tinkering with the PC a bit, doing tech stuff, replacing some hardware... being a humanities person I had never done it and I have found that I like it; I might consider it as an alternative when looking for a job.

My biggest problem however is that in recent times I have detected that I don't enjoy social interaction at all. I force myself to go out but I don't give off a good vibe. I also used to talk more, be more spontaneous to the point of fucking up sometimes, and now I am way too cautious...

I never feel lonely and other than the lack of sex I don't miss not having a girlfriend or being asked about it.

I hope later in life I will stop caring and be able to enjoy more what I have.

That's the first thing you'll have to tackle: get an income and your own place. I'd argue the "your own place" is more important, even if it's just a tiny flat.

Video games are a crutch, a way to get an easy dopamine boost for almost nothing in return. You'll feel good in the moment but like shit afterwards, like you've been wasting your time (which is kinda true). Stop playing them for a while and see how you feel.

Are you going out just for the sake of going out, or are you going out because you want to have fun? You might have to be proactive for the second one and actively look for stuff YOU want to do, but it's worth it. Always go out with the prospect of having fun. Otherwise, why bother?

Women are a lagging indicator of success. If you're lifting but are still a depressed, negative wreck, your life is still in shambles and you'll remain unattractive to a large majority of women.

You need to fix the other aspects of your life first. Start small. Continue lifting, sleep 8 hours or more a day, eat well, stop wasting time on social media. Then, have a goal/dream and work towards it everyday.

If you really feel like you're at the end of the road, don't hesitate going to a (male) therapist for a few sessions.

  1. What if, you elaborated on your injury, so we don't waste time guessing? This is what females do, this shouldn't be what you do.
  2. Unless you're an amputee (no arms, no legs) you don't have an excuse. You can work out something even with injury, almost 99% of the time. Legs injured? Work arms. Arms injured? work legs. Both of those injured? Work neck, core, back, etc. Now... don't be stupid. I'm not telling you to work through pain and damage your body. I'm saying to find something else you can do safely.
  3. Why do you have an injury? Part of the journey of lifting, is to lift correct, and with good form, so that you DON'T get injured. If you have an injury from lifting, it means you did something wrong.
  4. There is tons of special equipment for people who are injured. People with shoulder injuries, for instance, bench with football bars, rather than regular barbells. Take lifting seriously and research it, just like you'd research anything else you were interested in. The effort will pay off immensely down the road.
9 upvotesVigilantCMDR3 months ago

very fair point so lets discuss this

types of injuries:

-shoulder injuries: avoid bench press, do dumbbell chest press/flys instead

-leg injuries, focus on upper body lifts

-paralyzed/car accident: fixing your diet will help immensely. eating grilled chicken and watching your calories compared to slamming twinkies down your throat regularly will do a ton to not only your mood but appearance. also not gaining tons of weight

-lots of grip strengthening/ab work you can do, or even just making your traps look bigger.

point is you can usually work around a lot of injuries.

To being broke and hitting the gym and then learning to cut calories. To wondering why I could only get ugly girls. To losing bodyfat and getting leaner plus some muscle.

This post is exactly why I left TRP. I've been red pilled for a while here but most of the community here sucks dick because despite having put on 20 lbs of muscle last summer, to suggest "go lift" being the cure of all problems with a girl suggests you have absolutely no ground to stand on and no experience with women at at all. If you think "just go lift" is what is gonna get you girls, you're living in high school insecurities and football team jealousy mental shit swamp and frankly you treat this all like its some cheesy Disney movie where the buff guys get all the girls and that's literally all that matters. Are you living under a fucking rock. You must be really insecure about your body to suggest getting lean and jacked and fit is gonna cut it. I hope you square that away but once you do let us know how it works. I did better with women when I got thin before I lifted tbh. I see overweight frat boys and their later Wall Street form slaying solid airhead 9s all the time. Its important to not be fat but hopefully you know its about a balance of a bunch of things and if anything money is more important than muscles.

That you cannot change your face is one of the most horribly destructive blackpills out there. You can change your face. I know. I've done it. Much of your face is also muscle just like your body. Clench your jaw and feel your face with your hands. Press your tongue against the roof of your mouth - HARD. When your are lifting heavy, clench every muscle in your face too. Just like you develop a mind/muscle connection when you lift, you can also develop a mind/face connection.

Face is actually much higher on the female radar than body. Height? Not even a close third. Shoot for lean, mean, and MASCULINE! This WILL be reflected in your face eventually. How do you know you are getting there? You start catching women staring at you from the car behind in the rear view mirror. Women in the gym start trying to get in your line of sight - IGNORE THEM! Girls smile a big wide smile and giggle when they see your face. AWALT. But when all women begin to react like this around you, you've arrived.

Go lift. Lifting increases endorphins and makes you happier. You are unhappy because you passively watch life pass you by and do nothing to enjoy it. Stop getting trapped in negative thinking and change your circumstances.

While your post has merit on the whole, this part is particularly ignorant.

Lifting can release helpful endorphins, but this is often not enough by itself to cure a serious depression.

Similarly, "stop getting trapped in negative thinking and change your circumstances" is, no offense, edgy 21 year old platitude shit.

For someone whose psychology is currently wired to promote and latch onto negative thinking, simply saying "stop getting trapped in it" is completely useless advice. For a lot of people, unless they either have chemical assistance, or a trained psychologist guided them through a structured way of escaping negative thinking, their own attempts will fizzle out quickly and only depress them further.

It's good advice to lift and try to improve your life, but to tell people effectively "go lift and you are unhappy because you do nothing" is... well, it's not going to help 99/100 people that are actually seriously suffering. You're effectively just a motivational poster stuck in an office cubicle.

Sure, I think we're both agreed that the ideal is that people continue to improve themselves despite negative emotion.

What I'm getting at is that merely giving advice of "be more active, change your circumstances" is in many cases so broad as to be senseless to a lot of people. It's not like they haven't thought of doing more things - they probably beat themselves up constantly for not doing them, right? And getting that 'click' where they simply act isn't always... visible, tangible, within reach, because over years their mind has been wired to hide it from them.

Of coursez when dealing with women do whatever the fuck you want, but if you just pig out, get fat, or lazy, don't be surprised if death comes knocking at your door while you're scarfing down a Twinkie because it makes you happy and ignoring how much of a bitch diabetes is.

Also, MGTOW is for cucks who gave up cuz getting laid takes effort.

MGTOW is for men who perform a cost-benefit analysis and conclude that women are not worthwhile. Sure, "effort" is a part of it, but generally speaking a very small part of it. The looming threat of paternity and the associated financial destruction, the risk of false rape and/or dv accusations, the need to spend money on women that could be better deployed for other purposes, the expenditure of time trying to game women that could be better spent on other things, etc. are all factors. And then of course there's the obvious, which is the endpoint. It seems to me as somebody who has sporadically read TRP in the past, that for many here the whole "spinning plates" business is not meant to be a lifelong endeavor, and so many TRPers want to eventually start families (hence also the married trp subreddit). Whatever the merits of casual sex, the value proposition for starting a family is much shittier.

Sounds like a really complicated way of saying...

If that's your way of taking it, so be it. If you like dealing with feminism, sweating over two decades of child support if the condom breaks, false rape accusations, wasting money on women, and a whole host of other issues, more power to you. But honestly, making your life about female approval, which you're necessarily doing by chasing pussy, is definitionally more cucked than not wasting one's time and resources on women.

That this is your response is precisely why people like me ought to participate here more often. MGTOW an incels are fundamental opposites, yet people like you foolishly group them together. That kind of defective thinking makes you sound no better than a feminist.

Not just for women but to be respected and accepted by other men. Jack Donovan’s ‘the way of men’ covers this in great detail.
The opening section of the book hits this nail on the head.

Respect has to be earned. I don't respect other men just because they went to the gym. Many guys in the gym often are losers trying to convince you to invest in a multi-level marketing scheme. I don't care if those guys can bench 500 pounds, I don't respect them.

Lifting isn’t everything. I had a drill sergeant in basic training. He was small. Looked like a glow worm. That mother fucker was terrifying. It’s all about attitude.

3 upvotesaGodofmyownmaking3 months ago

But if you dont have attitude, lifting will build your attitude. You can compensate for attitude but most people right now in here have no attitude so let's at least get them lifting.

"I'm too poor to go the gym."

- Get a job

- Get a gym membership.

Extremely complex to figure out, I know.

"I have an uncurable disease"

Yeah, it sucks. I have gyno (the real one).

Who cares, stop focusing on what you lack and max out your potential strengths.

There's always something you can do to increase your SMV and better your life, even if you can't do it all. That's not even an excuse, it's just stupid. Lacking one thing does not equate to not being able to do other things.

I completely agree that you should do your best to better yourself, focus on your passion, etc... my point was that some people are just fucked. No matter how hard they will try, shit is gonna pile up to the point where they will never be able to get a job, or a gf/bf or a "normal life". but yeah, focus on the positive is good advice.

1 upvotesVisiblePlan [OP]3 months ago

Incel idealogy. If everyone thought like you, wed all except for a few people, be fat as shit, lazy, and poor. There's no such thing as people who are 'just fucked.' even disabled people get laid. Then it'd be called the 99-1 rule instead of 80-20, but the 1 wouldn't even want to fuck the 99 cuz they'd be fat as shit!

Game is more crucial to fucking than lifting, unpopular opinion.

7 upvotesserynada3 months ago

lifting offers more immediate and higher quality value that, for most people, per se enhances the effectiveness of even the most basic game. it’s more tangible and “hind-brain”.

game confers value that must be propped up perpetually by gambits and artifice. it’s more taxing/grueling and, if only internally, try hard (as the best game comes off as natural). when it comes to fucking, i give the edge to lifting, but still understand the crucial importance of solid game, though.

Being charming and charismatic will always get you laid. We all know the 6'5 roid monkey who can't get laid because he can't talk.

lifting isnt the magical pill that you're making it out to be.

-3 upvotesdeadfascia3 months ago

lurked trp for almost 6 years and I’m sick of seeing this advice, lifting for aesthetics will literally only fuck you up in the long term.

“Want to not be able to pick up your grandchildren when you’re 60?”

Go lift.

“Do you want to groan in pain every time you bend down at 45?”

Go lift.

“Do you want your identity to be dependent on an activity that isn’t sustainable for long term movement?”

Go lift.

“Do you want to have to undergo multiple surgeries in order to perpetuate the shitty movement patterns you use?”

Go lift.

Be IN SHAPE. BE ATHLETIC. Train martial arts, play sports, join a team and make new friends. Become more social.

Simply advising people to lift and thinking that it will fix their issues is retarded and toxic.

I’m a movement coach for MMA athletes. And trust me when I say that lifting does more HARM for moving well and athletically.

Also it’s cringe when you meat heads come in and get choked out by our little guys. But I could genuinely give a fuck less what y’all do, my team get undeniable results.

Food for thought.

Yeah but I'm not trying to win a fucking MMA match nigga, I'm tryna get my dick wet. Also, I'm not sure of too many MMA athletes that don't lift.

0 upvotesdeadfascia3 months ago

You’re not actively involved in changing the MMA culture bud, name 5 fighters that aren’t in Bellator or the UFC.

Just being big wont get you pussy. If you think fucking up your body to the point that you will inhibit your movement later in life (say goodbye to crushing puss in your 40s and 50s) having to get surgeries, and having trouble playing with your kids and grand kids is a better alternative to moving pain free (and athletically which is waaaaaaaaaay different than being aesthetic) and being lean.

I would rather look like Conor Mcgregor than a body builder because one of those dudes fundamentally is a bitch.

If you’re willing to throw the longevity of your body away for some pussy you really have a long mf road ahead of you to become a man.

That’s the least alpha shit of all time.
