TheRedArchive needs help
With 700,000+ posts and 16,000,000+ comments archived, and new Red Pill content being added every week, keeping TheRedArchive alive and discoverable to everyone is starting to become very costly. As a 20-year-old student who just moved out and is living independently for the first time, keeping TheRedArchive alive is beginning to cost me much more than I thought.

Therefore, if you appreciate the website, have gained a lot of knowledge and insight from it, and want to show your appreciation, you can do so by donating any amount that you want via the options below. The money will be used on the expensive monthly host bill and any future maintenance of the website.
Thank you, and I wish you all a successful 2021 and a good luck with achieving your goals and dreams!

Cut the Shit

March 5, 2018

See a lot of bullshit on here. Dudes complaining and not even responding to half the advice they get. Here's a guideline, for anyone considering posting a question here.
Take a picture of yourself shirtless and print it out. On this piece of paper:

  • Write down your stats (height, weight, bf%, lifts). You are keeping a journal of your workouts right?
  • Write down all the books you have read in the sidebar and one sentence about what you learned from each one (even if you haven't finished it yet). What was your main takeaway from the other erroneous material referenced in TRP sidebar and here?
  • Get your testosterone levels checked and write them down
  • Write down your ratio of sexual initiations/rejections
  • Write down the number of women besides your wife you could call right now to chill this weekend
  • Shit, write down the name of the last girl you flirted with who isn't your wife
  • Write down how many days over the past 15 you have actively gamed your wife
  • Write down two things you do that make you a good catch
  • Write down what you would do today if you did not have a wife/kids to go home to
  • Write down what Dread Level you are on
  • Write down how many more months you have to go until you are an attractive man with options

If you do this exercise and still don't have an answer to your dumb fuck question, post it. Here, I'll go first, sans the pic.

  • Write down your stats (height, weight, bf%, lifts):
  • 6'2", 210lbs., 15%bf
  • 90lb dumbbell press down from 102.5 (fuck!), 275 squat, 350 RDL, 315 lb. Hex bar shrugs, 102.5 lb. One arm rows, 45 lb. curls. Working back up after taking a break when my Dad died and I was depressed as shit. No excuses though, got work to do. I do a lot of other shit but these are the main ones. Back on track.
  • Write down all the books you have read in the sidebar and one sentence about what you learned from each one (even if you haven't finished it yet). What was your main takeaway from the other erroneous material referenced in TRP sidebar and here?
  • Gorilla Mindset: Overcome adversity with mental strength

  • Backbone (unfinished): Live true to yourself
  • Conversation Tactics 1-3: Be able to laugh at yourself and have fun bantering
  • Practical Female Psychology: If you let them, women will manipulate you - have fun with it and keep it light
  • Letting Go: The Pathway to Surrender (unfinished): Accept negative emotions and allow yourself to experience them
  • The Red Queen (just started): Somehow I missed this shit, no data yet.
  • General takeaway from sidebar in TRP and MRP: These are the tools, and AWALT, so focus on being the best version of yourself possible and you’ll get your dick wet

I woke up this morning and realised I was fat. I cried in front of my computer as I wanked off to a video of 6 guys fucking a fat girl at a frat party. My son walked in just as I was cumming into my sock and said "Daddy, what are you doing?"

I used a messed up mix of fogging and negative assertion on him. It didn't work, because he told my wife. She came in, angry and told me I could no longer do this in the house with the kids there and that she was sick of finding my wank socks on the floor.

I used a classic MRP trick and told her to "Shut The Fuck Up".

She looked shocked and started to cry. I recognised this as a comfort test, so I got up to hug her. As I did, I decided to throw in some Kino Game and smacked her on the ass.

"Get your fucking hands off me" was her response. I could tell by her look that this was a soft no, so I went in hard and told her that she could be my wank sock if she played her cards right.

She slapped me in the face and told me to get the fuck out of the house.

I carried on with 100% OI and not showing butthurt and went back to what I was doing before. Watching porn. She left the room in a huff. I've been tracking her cycle, so I put this down to PMS.

Later I got up to leave the house. She asked me where I was going. "Wouldn't you like to know?" I replied, flipping it.

"Yes" she said, "you haven't left the house in 2 weeks and you're wearing pyjamas".

"Well, I'll need them where I'm going", I winked to her, cocky and confidently.

I got into the car and realised that there was no petrol in it, so I sat there for a few hours and went back into the house. She didn't ask me where I'd been, so I told her that I'd just been to the gym and what weights I'd been lifting. I like to call this trick "frame projection".

We didn't have sex today, but like I said, she's nearing shark week.

I'm on Dread Level 10 at the minute, have read the side bar. Didn't click the links but I've read it about 8 times since yesterday.

Tomorrow, I'm off to spin plates. Dread the fuck out of her. Her hamster is going to explode.

[–]Fritz_Frauenraub24 points25 points  (1 child) | Copy

ahaha...throw in "should I start BJJ"..."got my macros dialed in"..."my SMV is 8" ...and "mission is to find my mission" and you'd have MRP Bingo.

So we're supposed to read what's IN the sidebar, and not just "read the sidebar"?!? Shit, so much wasted time.

[–]red-sfpplusHard Core Red6 points7 points  (11 children) | Copy

Off topic - but I love pushing 3 digit dumbbells on flat bench as well. But I stopped after I have read to many reports of bros ripping pecs and getting rotatory cuff issues getting the weight up, etc.

I just stick to barbell bench and incline now. Shoulder health is great, and I have no mobility issues. Not as sexy or Alpha, I know but at damn near 40 I take the physical health at this point.


[–]captain_my_captain224 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy

I tore my Peck tendon off the bone on Nov. 1. (Bench 4x5 @252 lbs, last set, last rep, bad form, POP goes the tendon!) Had it repair in early January. Doc says I can re-start strength training in a couple more months now... Wanna set back your training, pull a tendon.

[–]SgtSilverBack7 points8 points  (3 children) | Copy

Lucky. I tore pec off tendon Oct 16 last warm up with 295.. Sounded like a wet wash rag ripping.

Yup, if you want to mess up some part of your life, let your ego get in the way and rush things.

[–]Senor_Martillo1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Gawddammit all. Tore my AC ligaments all the way off in a motorcycle crash 5 months ago and I can still only bench 135. Any more and the rotator cuff starts screaming. If I tear THAT I won't even be able to lift a bag of groceries out of the car.

You filthy animals have any tricks for getting pec exercise that doesn't load the shoulders up? I'm at a loss. I mean I can do an ass load of low weight reps if that's the only answer, but fuck!

[–]SgtSilverBack1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

There are exercises that strengthen those parts of your shoulder and increase mobility. Plus you need to work on form. Bands or cables to do external rotations etc....

Like all exercises there are certain aspects of form that are universal, how you need to get the scapula out of the way in order to reduce impingment, and some you need to tweak for your body, how much you reduce your elbow angle, grip width etc.

In other words research and then practice till you find what works for you. Exactly like RP.

[–]Senor_Martillo1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]black_jack_davy2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Consider doing dumbbells for your warmups, about halfway up, then switching to barbell.

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

I've considered switching to bar but I like the ROM, holding my legs up and balancing while I press. The thing I like is also the thing that can hurt you though, you're right about that.

[–]red-sfpplusHard Core Red8 points9 points  (3 children) | Copy

Oh man...

Bench is not the time to train abs. Keep your feet on the floor please. It stabilizes the movement and gives you the proper leverage to complete the movement.

It is very unsafe to bench with your feet up, or resting on the bench.

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

no shit.... Never put my feet on the bench, liked the challenge of balancing. Guess I'm a ruhtard.

[–]Tebulus1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

How old are you? Its always 50+ guys I see doing this. Makes me think feet on the bench was cool 10-20 years back.

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Early 30s, I don't put my feet on the bench.

[–]Alpha_Engineer994 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy


I’d add one more question in order to really gage where the beta faggot’s mindset is:

Write down, on scale from 1-10, your confidence level of cold approaching a hot woman, or any woman, to tell her you think she looks nice/sexy/hot and wanted to come say hi- and then hold a 5 min conversation without coming across as a creeper.

Most faggots couldn’t even go up to her to say hi.

Better yet, write down scale 1-10 on your confidence level of running some daygame with a number close.

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy

I'll be honest, when I get on a roll/in state it's an 8 but after a few weeks of not gaming women I get that approach anxiety again/sometimes clam up. Here's another. Write down your confidence level on hitting on your wife. If it's not an 11/10 you have a shit ton of work to do.

[–]Alpha_Engineer991 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Your Q&A format reminds me of how’s Athol Kays forum used to be.. you had to fill out the basic list of questions and answers before anyone would give you advice.. I read mmslp first and found his forum 4 years ago. That was my start.

I would suggest implementing the same rules here - so we know what phase the person is in before we start giving advice....- but I like how we call everyone a faggot and piece of shit first ha ha ha !

It’s probably more effective how we do it.

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm not advocating anyone answer to anyone. Do this to answer to yourself.

[–]ReddJiveRed Beret0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

He's providing a road map. It will get old quick if guys come in here with the same starting message. Yet there are things we look for. A total victim puke is easier to read and analyze if the man posts his map.

Versus another man who's down the road well into his MAP just jumps right into it.

What's laid out is the path to separating your from your wife. Getting your mindset right.

[–]JudgeDoom693 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Nice work. Anyone who does that list to completion should not have any questions.

[–]01chlam2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

holy fuck i've read a lot of books.

excellant post.

[–]BobbyPeru1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

This is a great post... have an upvote.

I’m curious as to why you are on dread level 11 if you are getting no hard no’s from your wife...

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I took it to 11, wanted to see what else was out there for myself. Backed it down now to where I'm not spinning plates or anything atm. My wife found out I slept around. Once you hit 11, there's no going back if you stay attractive. She'll always know you will fuck other women unapologetically if you want/need to. I don't know if my marriage will last. Time will tell. I suspect she'll justify fucking another guy somewhere down the line, but maybe not. Not worried ab it. I'll move on to other things if that happens.

[–]BobbyPeru0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

How’d she find out? Just curious... Seems like it always comes out

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah thought my OPSEC was tight as shit too but long story short I forgot to delete a chat and she got into my account somehow. Sloppy.

[–]wadearave1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy

About a year ago I got my testosterone checked for the first time. I started to change things (sleep mostly, vitamin d, fats). My diet was alright and I was lifting. Got it checked a few months later and they number improved but still not to where I want it. I’m sure it a slow rebuild.

I was curious about what it is that you’re planning on to increase your numbers?

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

Prob TRT. I've done everything else.

[–]wadearave1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

That’s what I was worried about. I just got reading a whole bunch of stuff from Anabolic Men and then Tim Ferriss’ suggestions in 4-hour body. They lined up. I’m going in that direction.

He recommends:

Fermented cod liver oil with butter fat (2 capsules) Vitamin D (3,000-5,000) 3 Brazil nuts 10 minutes cold shower

This routine when you wake up and before bed. Figured it was worth a shot and that is share if you hadn’t seen it before.

[–]architectintx1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Dont do the codliver oil+butter crap, i had heart palpitations with that crap ( Blue Grass brand). Stay plant based as much as you can, could avoid a heart attack. my two 2-cents, take it or leave it.

[–]wadearave0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

What did you take?

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I did vitamin d and fish oil with cold showers, good info though.

[–]simbarlionRed Beret0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

Can I add:

What brought you here?, And

What dread level are you really on?,

I would also ask 'what is number one problem in your life or relationship' ( just don't flame me for questions related to her).

Let's be honest that last question addresses what 90% of newbies want to solve.

EDIT:. oh I see dread level is in there. Question still applies though

[–]RuleZeroDADRed Beret2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

To give you that hard truth you are looking for, unless you are below 15% BF, you're perpetually at DL 1.

[–]donedreadpirateRed Beret[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's a mindset more than anything. The fitness is icing on the cake.

[–]CaliEd2560 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Damn, that seriously hit me hard. 5’10” at 178 lbs, but 20% body fat. Been told I was hot by pretty much every woman, but it’s mostly genetically good face.

Always felt confident I could easily run dread game, but I’ve got a lot of work to do on the cuts. 👍🏻

[–]RuleZeroDADRed Beret1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Until a man is as objectively attractive as he can be, he can't ascertain whether behaving unattractively is the cause of his difficulties with women. I've always believed the best dread is like Norton Anti-virus, running constantly in the background, without having to prompt anything. Looks, hygiene, style, and fitness don't need to be "applied" to a woman. Her limbic system and her recognition of your pre-selection qualities should be doing a large portion of the work for you.

Rule out the easiest factors (the one's you can control for with demonstrable results) first, and don't believe the "I love you just the way you are" BS.

[–]CaliEd2560 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Absolutely agree with not believing “I love you just...”. All of a sudden they realize how fast the 1000 foot rope is moving.

Passive dread is definitely my favorite. Once I start lifting hard, the shit tests start to disappear. Or I don’t even notice them anymore. Either way.

[–]RedPillCoach0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy
