You have zero excuses to not get jacked

"It is a disgrace to grow old through sheer carelessness before seeing what manner of man you may become by developing your bodily strength and beauty to their highest limit"     –Socrates

There are only two types of male physiques at my college campus: the sorry ass obese/overweight/dad bod guys and the rounded-shoulders scrawny guys who look like children whose thin neck would snap if you back patted them too hard.

These are the guys who complain that they are not getting as much pussy as they want (or any at all) without coming up with any solution. So when I say the magical words of 'Just go lift bro' they always come up with bullshit excuses.

Do you have free time to play videogames, jerk off furiously to porn or just fuck around YouTube or Reddit or any of all that stuff? Then you also have time to exercise, it won't even take you that long: 45-60 mins. Videogames can wait.

Do you have two arms, two legs and can you use them on a regular basis? Then you can exercise too. If a disabled bodybuilder can look like a Greek sculpture then so can you. 

If you can pay your internet service to fuck around Reddit, then you can clearly pay a gym membership too. 

Are you absolutely broke? Go out to the nearest park, do some sit ups, push ups, pull ups, chin ups, dips. How do you think gymnasts get that jacked?

Are you not strong enough to do the exercises? Use assistance bands, start slow, cheat a little bit. At least try.

You don't have a routine or don't know how to do the exercises? There are literally thousands of free videos on YouTube explaining everything you have to know.

You want to loose weight? Stop eating garbage, drink more water.

You want to gain weight? Stop eating garbage, get in a caloric surplus, drink more water.

If you are skinny or fat it is entirely your fault. Blame it all you want on your genetics, the weather, your ex gf, the stars, the cosmos, your destiny. Nothing will change the fact that only you have control over your own body.

Fitness is truly the first step to the mental and physical transformation of any men. Healthy body, healthy mind. So what are you waiting for?

If you only hamster yourself into not doing anything everyday, then one day you will wake up as an erectile dysfunctional man-titted people-pleasing low t bald motherfucker who can't even stand up for himself (sorry if you are already this guy, you can still fix yourself up tho).

Did you realized that you were a lazy fuck? Don't worry, don't beat yourself up about this. Just do something about it. It's not only about the women, but more importantly, about YOU.

Just get your eyes off the screen and start taking action, you've had enough internet for today.

I have to have a hip operation, expensive as shit, as it uses stem cells, I can't do squats, abs, anything that goes through the mid section, but I work around that. I asked my doc what I could do, and do the shit out of that.

2 of my buddies have diagnosed depression, and working out does wonders for their mood. The gym has likely saved one life there.

The gym has pulled me from depression also, it’s my therapy.

My therapy, too.

It's honestly changed my life. I'd be lost without it.

Fixed my drinking problem. Hell I started lifting because I noticed I didn't want to drink on those days.

The 20 lbs I've lost and the increased female attention are just perks. Either I lift or I drink so I lift daily.

[–]comu_nacho52 points53 points  (0 children) | Copy

Lift the glass or lift the dumbbell.

Great choice. My dad died fighting that demon. Congrats on the life changes.

[–]supersonic-turtle20 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hell yeah. I had a drinking problem, sober 2 years now. I lost 23lbs of fat and replaced it with muscle. It’s night and day how different I look and how much better I feel. Attention from women was just a side effect of my conscious decision to improve myself.

People want to get jacked but they give up when they realise it will take longer than what they thought

In general, people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can do in 5

[–]KV-n24 points25 points  (27 children) | Copy

On progresspics there are many people with VERY visible results in a year or less. They also claim it was without steroids but ofc its questionable.

Hell, I started 5 months ago being underwheight and gained 25lbs already without gaining a lot of fat. Noobie gains are real

[–]b3nthegod10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

THIS. My first 3 months i gained 8Kgs (17pounds), just by going heavy and a mass gainer. Im in the 5th month, and since than i only gained 2kgs. So yes i subscribe, to this.

You gained a Lot of fat. You just wont know before you have to cut. Trust me.

Well, my abs are still as visible as they were before, I think most of the fast went into my tighs, which doesn't bother me

Fat will be stores very differently in people. But muscle mass isnt build that fast.

[–]BuzzLightGear321 1 points [recovered]  (2 children) | Copy

25lbs of just muscle is impossible natty in 5 months. That would be 1 year of gains at the higher end. IMHO (since you said you gained fat) is that 10 lbs is fat/water.

[–]GonadGravy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I gained 23lbs of muscle in 6 months.

Six months and your friends will compliment you - if done right and consistently

Three months and you'll have already noticed something going on yourself.

[–]Protocol_Apollo3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I don’t deny noob gains by any means but a lot of people don’t maximise their noob gains by a large margin.

The average person who starts working out has very little structure behind their workouts and/or don’t give enough heed to their diet.

Not to mention, noob gains physiques aren’t what people are looking for when they start. They expect to have a decent beach body within a few months or a year when that’s clearly an over-estimate

[–]wanderer7791 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

There are several variables. If you were fat but had a lot of muscle underneath you can lose the fat and voila you're lean ans strong. If you're an ex football player who was strong and let himself go after college, you can gain it back quicker the second time than you did the first. And then of course there's genetics amd steroids.

How many weak guys with average or below genes became strong and lean quickly without steroids? I think that's the boat a lot of us find ourselves in. If that's you it's probably going to take longer.

[–]xcalibercaliber8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

The author is a bit whacked but I benefited from “The 10X Rule”. It’s not a literal rule but a mental exercise to remind yourself that whatever you want to accomplish needs to be dedicated 10X the amount of thought, energy, and time to if you are serious about achieving it. Humans in general are woefully pathetic at counting the true cost and putting forth the proper energy to achieve something.

True- lobiner said himself: “if you are below age 25, you don’t need steroids, your testicles themselves are steroids”

[–]miserablesisyphus2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's called compound interest -- our habits are compounding. The more you put in, the more it builds. I've been working out hard and eating excellent for 158 days. Days 1-60 wasn't anything exciting, but they built the framework. After day 60 is when I really started seeing results. Also, 158 days seems so short now. Months 1 and 2 seemed like I had been doing something for a really long time, but imagine any other habit you do. If you've only played the guitar for 2 months you won't be that good, if you cut hair for 2 months you won't be that good, etc. It takes years to be good at something, but once you get over that learning curve it becomes easier. The same thing applies to our bodies. We can't workout hard for 3 months and expect to look like Arnold or someone who spent their life dedicated to achieving those results.

Seriously. I have a torn labrum in my right shoulder and hyper-extended rotator cuff in my left. I'm going to the gym in about 10 minutes. Just fucking lift.

[–]bowhunter633 points34 points  (1 child) | Copy

Make sure you take care of your injuries. Work around them as best you can, but absolutely take care of yourself, especially your joints. Definitely keep up that tenacious attitude, though.

[–]personaldistance20 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah it's tough but I work around it. Grip variations and volume over weight for now when it comes to shoulders. Appreciate it though man.

[–]AquaticTurtle9820 points21 points  (3 children) | Copy

Good luck when your body gets fucked. Id advocate getting that fixed, still exercise though. Right now you’re good, but it will have a toll in the future mate.

[–]personaldistance5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy

You're not wrong, but my body is already fucked. I'm going to be entering PT soon but for now I work around it. Can't stand slouching.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Keep working around it. I have a torn labrum in my left shoulder and I thought sitting out would help- I sat out 6 months and my physique/mental got fucked lmao. Now that I'm back to lifting and working around I feel so much better. Still have a lot of muscle to gain back though. Luckily muscle memory is a thing, I think? So it should take me about half the time to gain it back

[–]personaldistance4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

That's exactly it. I sat out for the same reason and I HATED myself. Now I'm like fuck, it I'll work around it and if my arm still falls off at least I look and feel good haha. Hopefully PT helps and I don't need surgery but we'll see.

[–]Polimber1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fuck im glad to hear you're doing that. Had my labrum fixed three months ago and still can't fucking move it.

How'd I tear it? Heavy lift chest day, went to sauna took my shirt off, it got caught on my sweaty back and RIPPPPP. My arm was left hanging there with my bicep nearly ripped off.

The chest day had nothing to do with it. Just turned into the "man tittied low t bitch" the OP talked about and now just prone to injuries. Clearly, I'm not young anymore to abuse my body like that anymore without enough preparation. I need to take it slow.

Anyway, lift and lift often!

All the weaklings complaining in this thread.

There was no nuance to these results, he said. Zero of the 160 women surveyed showed a statistical preference for weaker men.

So get out there and build your body through exercise. Build your mind through learning. Build your lifestyle through fun.

[–]anonlymouse8 points9 points  (6 children) | Copy

I know at least one who prefers weaker men if they're tall and the stronger men are short (especially shorter than her). Guys who were jacked -fitness models, and interested in her, she rejected for a nerd with less arm circumference, because he was 1m85. Of course height isn't something you can control so no point adjusting your plans because of it, but there are women whose preference is looking up at their man instead of down, before anything else.

[–]umizumiz11 points12 points  (2 children) | Copy

I'd like to see how she feels after he's twisted into a pretzel and shit on by a swoll manlet.

[–]anonlymouse5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

She could twist him into a pretzel - and did (black belt in Ju-Jitsu and Kyokushin). Didn't care, he was taller than her, and the manlets were invisible to her. She would complain they were hitting on her, and then turn around and forget it had happened when she said men just don't like a woman taller than them.

[–]blitzer92 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

Your anecdote doesn't contradict the point made in the study. The researchers found that there was always a positive correlation between strength and attractiveness to every woman they studied (n=160), not that there weren't other factors that affect attractiveness as well.

The tall skinny guy may be more attractive than the short jacked guy, BUT the tall guy would be even more attractive if he were stronger and the short guy would be even less attractive if he were weaker.

[–]anonlymouse0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The point is that height is so important to some women that no amount of muscle or strength will make a difference that they will even register your existence. Yes, tall and strong would be better, but tall is weighted at 90%.

[–]yungassed18 points19 points  (0 children) | Copy

They also consider Jason Momoa when not dehrydated and shredded for a movie to be a dad bod... Their concept of what is realistic is so distorted from media they really have no idea. When they say dad bod, they are really just saying he doesn't need to be a shredded calvin klein model, cause no shit, even those models don't really walk around like that in real life year round.

[–]comu_nacho17 points18 points  (5 children) | Copy

Well, fat is better than skinny. A fat guy can fuck you up if he knows how to use his weight. Look at Butterbean. Bigger guys should activate some primal instinct in girls, even if it's fat, just not only fat.

Maybe they prefer dad bods over anorexic physiques, if there are no fit guys interested in them.

[–]1New_Guard14 points15 points  (1 child) | Copy

If you're a bit fat, she feels like it's ok to be fat herself. Otherwise, your rippedness makes her feel the stress of maintaining her own physique, and the worry of other women potentially stealing you. I've had like 3 previous exes try to manipulate me into working out less and eating shit more often for exactly this reason. It's a red flag I really watch for now.

[–]comu_nacho1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, my sister-in-law does this to my brother.

But I'm talking about girls' instincts. I really think they prefer guys with body mass index 25-26 better than bmi 17-18 (both extremes of normal), better if it's muscle, but fat won't hurt you in that range. It's Kenyan sabannah's laws, 500,000 years ago.

[–]DancesWithPugs3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

In the UFC a heavyweight fighter named Roy "Big Country" Nelson reportedly pissed off CEO Dana White for having a BIG OL' GUT and still winning his fights. That dude isn't the best ever but he knew how to maximize his bodyweight with both punches and grappling. 250+ lbs of hefty human laying on you is no joke. There are techniques involved as well but even just immobile mass on your chest makes your breathing very inefficient. Out of breath, and you're out of the fight.

Its not even 45 minutes every day. Three days a week will suffice. That’s less than 2 and a half hours a week. Pathetic if you won’t make yourself that kind of time.

[–]BuzzLightGear321 1 points [recovered]  (2 children) | Copy

My high rep workouts is 2 hours long 4 times a week. You can get by with less, but you are probably letting recovery go too long and missing muscle groups.

[–]justanotherdude1120 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Depends on the body type. The real skinny dudes with the high metabolism usually lift best high weight, low reps, lots of rest, while the naturally bigger dudes can get in more reps to burn off the extra fat. Skinny dudes when feet lift too often end up burning muscle AND fat, keeping them from bulking up.

[–]zav2576 points77 points  (12 children) | Copy

Yes. Get fucking jacked. No excuse.

Ive always played around with working out and been the athletic type of dude, always into sports and shit, but lately I've been getting really deep into bodybuilding...

Trust me, I swear to God I feel like a Hollywood star, everyone is looking at me while I'm walking down the street. I go into a restaurant, all the bitches with their boyfriends right besides them, can't keep themselves from checking me out, it makes me laugh everytime.

Real confidence comes from within. But looking good, being healthy and feeling good about yourself will help build that inner, authentic confidence. So go lift. Stop playing yourself. Be disciplined and get shit done. Cheers!

The thing is... I don't even look that impressive, definitely not looking like those Instagram models and shit like that. I just got big enough that I fill my t-shirts completely now, my arms pop out and I just look more massive overall, but nothing crazy. I can't even imagine what looking extra good has to be like.

You have to think that 99% of the population is either obese, skinny, skinny fat or just plain average looking, so if you're simply looking fit, nothing crazy, you're in the 1% physique wise.

[–]Uesugi19891 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

How much height and weight are you? I am 6ft and 190lbs, but the thing is that I got an insanely narrow skeleton, like legit my waist is as thin as female models.

I am jacked and shredded as fuck but still I wish I could get bigger, my waist to back ratio is almost at 1/2 currently, I feel that I have plautoed the last few years

My point is that yes you can improve a lot, you can be the best you can but sometimes it is still not enough. Despite my thin skeleton structure, I am lucky to be relatively tall. Imagine if that same skeleton was put on a 5ft6 guy

[–]zav250 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not to take anything away from the disabled body builder, but that’s obvious steroid use (notice he’s also bald now which is a common side effect of anabolic steroids) i think it’s great hes body building but i also want to be realistic with guys in this sub

[–]AbrocadoPie13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy

I live near a college campus, and the amount of young, at their prime, men who is just fat is infuriating to me. The fact you cant even take care of yourself gives me no trust that you can do good for others, or society as a whole. As trends of obesity continues to rise, I weep for the future of society.

Id complain less if women didnt get fatter too lol

[–]maroonblood94192 points193 points  (30 children) | Copy

As a former bodybuilder, I can honestly say being jacked did nothing for me. Changing my attitude and working on confidence did. All a man needs is a lean, Brad Pitt/fight club physique. Women aren’t looking for a mass monster, and many even find it a turnoff. Fitness and looking good are great. It doesn’t need to be extreme though. I learned the hard way.

[–]nicyhasreddit 1 points [recovered]  (3 children) | Copy

The point is this though.

Women prefer muscular to fat or skinny. Lean means muscular too.

And you don't get muscular without lifting.

[–]NightflowerFade23 points24 points  (4 children) | Copy

You can't get "too jacked" unless you use steroids

[–]AreOut1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

depending on your defitinition of jacked, if you consider people with 20% bf jacked then yes you can, getting under 10% bf while retaining muscles is another story tho

[–]GuruDev10000 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You can get too jacked, that is, really really muscular, with a costly routine of supplements. These men will turn heads of women and turn them on, but I don't think it's going to help them get anything more than ONS without upping their game.

[–]CryptoViceroy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well, using steroids for years that is.

People really overestimate the power of steroids. Even with steroids, it's still gonna take you years to get anywhere close to your genetic max.

[–]anonlymouse115 points116 points  (4 children) | Copy

As a former bodybuilder, I can honestly say being jacked did nothing for me.

There is such a thing as too much muscle. 99.999% of men will never reach that, so when speaking in generalities, it's not worth even mentioning as an exception. And the people who do have too much muscle obviously aren't making excuses for why they shouldn't lift - they're posting about Swole Acceptance in between sets.

Compared to the guys this is addressed to, Brad Pitt is jacked.

I agree. For me fitness is all about health, and no healthy guy is going to take it to the extreme.

However, I think you misunderstood my point. I said that fitness is the simplest way to start making huge changes to your life, and more often than not, a good habit leads to another good habit. First you add some muscle, your T levels improve, you start getting more confident, you start changing your attitude and it's only upward from there. Healthy body, healthy mind.

[–]SalporinRP13 points14 points  (1 child) | Copy

I think by "jacked" OP just meant lean with at least some respectable level of muscle mass.

A few years back after my 2nd bulk I had a bulky physique and I hated it. I was a relatively lean 185-190 at 5'10 and just felt so unathletic.

Now a few years later I'm a very lean 165-170 (I gotta be this low for boxing) and I feel much better. Much quicker and more athletic and I still turn heads at the beach. The only problem is that I do look worse than before in clothes. When I wear a long-sleeve shirt I pretty much just look like a normal person.

[–]Don_Himself8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Wrong. Proper mass on your frame makes your physique more masculine, and makes your clothes fit far more flattering than being slim & petite. The #1 thing you can do for your style, which is proven to be an extremely big display of high sexual value, is put on lean muscle and wear clothes that fit you.

This alone will lift 90% of the load for you with women. The other 10% is knowing how to spike emotions in them smoothly, and how to swat away shit tests.

Life is literally this easy

[–]DancesWithPugs1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Men can all understand the concept of nice hair, nice tits, nice legs, nice ass etc. on a woman. There's a broadly upheld general standard of appearance. Some men are baffled when those standards are turned on them. It's really not that complicated, but I do find value in breaking down why it works the way it does. Women are drawn to men's secondary sexual characteristics (just as we are to theirs.) Beards, deep voices, height, broad shoulders, muscles, package. They signal: this person is a male adult. Commence vagina tingles. Looking like a fat pregnant woman or little child will not be attractive. Looking like a warrior hunter is attractive because it signals masculinity, provision, and protection.

That is usually over use of steroids and growth hormones.

[–]AreOut0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

it's quite true

I'm 6'2 with 255 lbs and a bit less than 20% bf, looks wise girls prefer guys my height with 180 lbs and 10% bf.

But I don't want to cut as I would lose strength and I like being strong. Many times confidence wins over looks, and girls love when they feel your strength during sex (when you lift them etc.).

[–]Sumsar012 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

You dont have to loose strength.

[–]Zech4riah0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's what I keep saying, lean "Brad Pitt/fight club physique" is desirable for most of the women and to achieve that isn't even hard because you don't need awful lot of muscle mass.

[–]prettyawsm-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

What would you say about jogging? I like to run for about 30 mins as a warm up proceeding to lift then. I heard that many people save energy skipping jogging and going to lift right away.

[–]MarcosDomingues0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Warming up with cardio will waste your energy away. Instead do HIIT, and do it on separate days

[–]Cods_gift_to_reddit42 points43 points  (19 children) | Copy

If you are fat it is entirely your fault. Blame it all you want on your genetics

Naturally putting on fat easily is actually a stronger place to start genetically as a guy compared to being scrawny because your body is programmed to make you big.

If you start lifting then a fat guy very very quickly starts to lose fat and build an attractive physique. I fucking hate running and any sort of cardio but 5-15 minutes lifting weights feels like no effort at all for huge rewards

My brother is naturally little and it took him a lot of effort to put on a little bit of muscle. He stopped because he said it was way too much effort for only a little bit of benefit. I'm naturally big but I put a bit of effort into lifting (and I mean a little bit) and the fat melted away. I packed on muscle literally overnight when I started it was crazy. I got comments the same week about how muscular I suddenly was, feels great guys 5 stars

Don't expect nuance in these kinds of threads. Forget about being raised with zero clue how to eat properly or being obese by the time you can actually start using your brain.

Some people start way behind in terms of fitness. But at least you can act on it when you realize that

[–]Cods_gift_to_reddit5 points6 points  (6 children) | Copy

For sure no-one has an excuse in the age of the internet, even the disadvantaged.

How could anyone be raised with zero clue about how to eat properly with all the information around us - everyone knows what they need to do.

[–]Me_ADC_Me_SMASH15 points16 points  (4 children) | Copy

That's just patently false. People to this day have no clue about how to eat properly.

Worse, they THINK they're eating properly but they're actually eating like shit and too much. If it was that easy there wouldn't be an obesity epidemic. People feed crap to their children all the time. My baby sister is getting fat right now because my dad is letting her have all the sugar she wants and she's like 2.

[–]Cods_gift_to_reddit1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Ah but knowing it and taking action on it are 2 very different things.

People lack discipline not knowledge

everybody knows that fat people need to eat less food, less often, and replace bad food (sugar, factory made food, ready meals) for good food (fruit, veg, meat). Ask any 5 year old and they'll be able to tell you that.

[–]Me_ADC_Me_SMASH4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

You're too optimistic. They think eating more good foods on top of your bad food will make it better and compensate for the bad. I'm not making this up.

And yeah that's really sad about your sister because her brain is still early stage developing.

Sugar overload now will make it a lot harder for her to manage and choose healthier food when she's older and independent.

[–]anonlymouse0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Except they don't. I disregard a huge portion of diet advice, reversing it often, and I'm lean. It isn't that surprising with the advice that people aren't making progress, but they also need to figure out that if what they're doing isn't working, they need to change something, even if it flies in the face of common wisdom.

[–]wanderer7793 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yeah I noticed most of the quick transformations were fat dudes. Only downside is the loose skin which really only becomes noticeable if you were pretty obese.

[–]anonlymouse0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Which is why lifting is important, you're replacing fat with muscle in the same volume, or at least slow down your shrinking.

[–]SalporinRP6 points7 points  (4 children) | Copy

My brother is naturally little and it took him a lot of effort to put on a little bit of muscle. He stopped because he said it was way too much effort for only a little bit of benefit.

This is pretty much broscience. The different between a fast and slow metabolism is like 470 calories a day. All he needed was an extra egg in the morning and an chicken breast at night.

true, i also started shedding fat and putting muscle on like crazy when i started. withing 6 months i gained like 7-8kg of muscle(i weighted around 65kg at the time, later 70kg), and lost significant amounts of fat. On the other hand i find it really hard to get to a low bf beyond a certain point, it almost seems impossible as i start to get mood swings, i feel shitty, cann't deliver the usual performance and get enormous food cravings.

Everything that has ever happened to you that you had otherwise control over is most likely your own fault, and it's okay. It is of no use to dwindle in the mistakes of the past.

Huge post man, working out and eating clean is probably the best thing I’ve done for myself in the past year. I’m very tall, but very slender. The height accentuates the wiry frame, so I’ve always looked disproportionate.

Last October I got so fed up with seeing my emaciated frame in photos that I decided to man the fuck up. I sat down and watched Athlean-X videos for 3 days straight, taking notes, drawings, etc. until I had a workout routine for myself. There are countless online fitness instructors to choose from, but I appreciate Jeff’s approach; he explains how the body works, and he puts emphasis on balance and longevity. There are a few others I follow on Instagram with similar approaches: @theptinitiative, @moveu, @jackhanrahanfitness, @thehpm, @functionalrangerelease. I go to a gym that costs $30/month. $1 per day.

My diet is primarily meat & vegetables, some fruit, eggs, Greek yogurt, heavy cream, brown rice. I buy like the same 20 things at the grocery store. Makes it easy. I’m putting on weight, but I’m not interested in dirty bulking or ballooning and I occasionally do a 48hr water-only fast. I’m putting on visible muscle and my bf% is 6.4. I also picked up social dancing, so that takes care of cardio (hate running)—highly recommended. Gives you something to do when you go out and girls dig it.

Fitness is #1, makes executing RP so much easier and rewarding. Thanks for the post. You have to appreciate the incremental progress and get a mindset that is satisfied with, “I’m better today than I was yesterday.” Results are awesome when they start appearing. Get up and get after it.

Even though every year I fall out of the gym for about 4 months due to 80 to 100 hr work weeks traveling in a truck on the road, the rest of the 8 months I am strict and dedicated and I've never felt better, gotten as much respect or IOIs than when I am jacked.

[–]genX503 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm 51, been lifting since I was in Grade 8. I was so skinny in those days that just playing volleyball hurt my tiny wrists. In fact, I was so brittle the gym teacher put me in the weight room for the rest of the year. One of the best things that ever happened to me. Didn't know wtf I was doing but I kept at it and never gave up.

38 years later I'm still at it. Still feel like I don't know wtf I am doing sometimes but I go after it regardless and learn as much as I can - you lucky bastards have YT ;). Anyhow, I've maintained a great, low-fat, strong muscular body over the decades. Being strong, having wide shoulders, nice arms and a narrow waist takes work but you get used to it. I get bored with it every few years but I still pack my bag and go.

Too much emphasis is placed on getting women. Women are easy to get and are nothing more than spoils of war. Lifting isn't about women. Lifting, martial arts, reading, risk-taking, etc are all parts of just being a man. You definitely do not have to do it. I'm just grateful I added and am continuing to add to my arsenal.

It's quite unfortunate that posts like this have to be made.

My motivation to continue to workout is that real life achievements feel better than video game achievements (which feel fake and unfulfilling now).

[–]BaLahKie2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

For a lot of those types of people, it’s not even the gym that’s the real issue. It’s the dedication you need outside of it to eat right etc (if you don’t have lucky genetics). They know that it’s more of a complete lifestyle change than just putting in 45 minutes per day, and that’s what they fear

[–]throwlaca2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I have an excuse: I'm over 40 and have rheuma in my hands and a herniated disc. That prevents me doing lots of movements. It do not prevent me for doing push-ups and I'm looking for hooks to do pull-ups and chin-ups. Best exercises there are. Not skinny fat anymore, however at my age I gain weight very easily. Thats actually good as its really easy to gain muscle too. If only I had the bones and joints of a 20-year old..

There is a study out there and the natural capacity to build up muscle has a huge span. Yes there is such a thing as bad genes in terms for building muscle. The worst on roids still fare worse than a genetically favored person being natural.

While same is true for being fat or depression of course it's no excuse to not lift. Still if someone isn't huge and can't deadlift 500 lbs, it doesn't mean he doesn't lift or is lazy.

[–]Ataxmaster10 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ok but anyone has the potential to deadlift 500 assuming they are willing to bulk and cut for 10+ years and they aren't super short. Plus anyone who deadlifts 400+ has an impressive physique anyways, and that's possible for everyone.

I have arthritis (joint pain) so I can't do as much as other people probably could, being disabled and all, but I think that people should do what they can to stay in shape, especially if they're able bodied. I try to aim for 50 pushups, 50 situps, 50 squats and go for walks fairly often. Occasionally run on a good day. It's a fine line between keeping myself flexible and overdoing it, leading to hours if not days of pain, but I think it's worth it to stay active even with the disease. If I can manage to keep somewhat in shape with these creaky bones I'm sure the average Joe can manage much more.

If you can pay your internet service to fuck around Reddit, then you can clearly pay a gym membership too. 

I get what you're saying but this is a $30/month bill vs a $200+/month bill for a trainer lol. Not everyone that can afford internet can afford a trainer and getting a gym membership without knowing what you're doing is a waste of money.

I think the biggest thing holding people back is that there is so so so much information out there that it's impossible to sift through it all and find what works, what can work for your body/lifestyle/schedule, and how to get started without spending weeks and weeks doing research from 10 million sources. You can go in the gym and fuck around for 45-50 minutes but without a strict plan you will make negligible progress. IMO it's just hard to start out so most people quit after a month or two.

All of the people that I know that are seriously ripped to hell all have been lifting since middle/high school and all have gymbros to keep them accountable. Without that (while not impossible) you are are a severe disadvantage to the typical musclebro in your local gym (on average).

Nobody in the world is stupid enough to not understand that if you want to lose weight you gotta stop eating shit. You either have the determination or you don't and that's just it, black and white. If you don't 110% want it then you quit after 2 months. I'm sure the lazy fucks of reddit all know they are lazy fucks, the most critical part of lifting IMO is the first few months. After two months if you don't see even the slightest progress at all then most people are gonna quit, which is a cyclical problem because it's so hard to accumulate the knowledge to train effectively without prior experience. Getting a paid trainer is usually shit because they just want you to spend the money and break a little sweat. If you make no progress it means nothing really to them because it's just their job to do something but they have no goals to meet so if you increase 5lb on bench over 3 months then it's no problem for them.

I keep seeing "if you don't wanna be fat then just get ripped" posts and it's such a gross oversimplification of the process that I feel like you're discrediting yourself for how much hard work and conviction you actually put in to get in shape.

Fitness is truly the first step to the mental and physical transformation of any men. Healthy body, healthy mind. So what are you waiting for

Bluepill horseshit. The smartest and socially powerful men in the world never cared about fitness and looks. I would even go as far as saying they are ontologically incompatible. You can't serve two masters. If you want to build a strong spirit you have to hate your body. The more physically attractive a person is the dumber and personality-less they are. That's why women are dumb and boring. Because they're obsessed with their looks.

I was athletic through my late 20s, was in the Marines, was active in college, did the whole running things for years, then got lazy in my mid 30s, was depressed, going through divorce etc, etc..just cuz you're not obese you think everything is A-OK.....and it just becomes a game of having the least fattest belly at work.

Skinny fat is a disease that creeps up, especially if you've been skinny fat since a young age, then you just turn into the flabby old man, skinny ass triceps, love handles, weak ass legs, etc.

There are lots of options to stay in shape that involves being strong. If you did sports in high school or have had any type of training, you have a base of knowledge to build up on. I carve a three hour block every other day to get my walk, HIIT on stairs, and supersets at the park, i.e., dips, pullups, etc. Been at it for 6 months, my posture and neck are back to normal and clothes just looks better. Even sitting down is a lot more comfortable.

There is no excuse. People spend good money on washing their car, spend ridiculous amount of money on pets but won't put the time and effort into themselves.

It's when you start getting closer to 60 when the whole being in shape things starts paying off. My mentor, he is 65, good ol' California boy, surfed with him in South America. I don't surf, but I didn't want to look like a pussy in front of him. Many of his colleagues are nothing but round old people, he's still surfing, cycling and alert, and putting two more years into work so he can get extra money for retirement, and he will be enjoying it. Working out is to future proof your older self.

Also, there is something about pushing yourself and making your body sweat and feel pain that makes your brain mentally tough as well. Easier to have frame when you know you kicked your own ass working out.

Consistent Effort + Protein = Results. I doubt anything beats lifting in terms of ROI. Even if you have a busy schedule, a 3-day split can be done in an hour or less each workout day. Any excuse is an expression of laziness, because it's likely the easiest activity you can do for the results you obtain.

If you think you have a problem see a doctor.

Can she reduce my testosterone?

[–]ruffyamaharyder1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Not sure, I'm not a doctor.

[–]r8001-3 points-2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Wrong, I have 3:

Bad genetics -- it's way too hard for me to build mass. When I do, even if I eat clean, I still get fat. Then if I stop, muscles disappear in a matter of one month, while most of fat lingers on.

No time -- I fucking work 40hrs a week, while trying to spend the rest on either actually resting, or on working on that personal project of mine, which could potentially one day save me from... well... from 40hrs work a week! And no, gym is NOT a rest, it's a physical work, so in the end you're both emotionally AND physically exhausted.

No money -- I dunno about 'murica, but in my country food + supplements + gym membership all take a metric fuckton of money. Money I'd rather save on something else, considering first two reasons.

Let the downvotes from genetically-gifted douchebags commence, I don't give a fuck.

Quit blaming your issues on the world and take some damn responsibility for yourself. If you want it, take it but don't self-deceive.

It's pointless if you're short.l, It just looks like you're over compensating at that point. I still lift to stay lean, but it's not gonna make me attractive.

My ankylosing spondylitis, $700 a month in disability, and arthritic ridden 28 year old body says youre absolutely full of shit. There are plenty of reasons you cant with health limitations.

[–]Protocol_Apollo4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

Are you an average 28 year old?

Lift weights. Get stronger. Profit.

[–]comu_nacho1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well bro, where it says "lift", you read "improve" whatever the fuck you can improve, given your circumstances. Mind or spirit.

Stay strong.

[–]bowhunter60 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

You’re never going to get anywhere with that attitude.

Get off your ass and do something, at least.

[–]CatfreshWilly0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I do, its called physical therapy. Thanks for the insight. Unfortunately my disease is incurable so my bones and joints are all falling apart and my spine is fusing together.

[–]bowhunter61 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

JFC, well, uh, sorry to hear that, bro.

Hope your circumstances change for the better.

[–]CatfreshWilly1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Srry to be such a buzzkill, just hate seeing these pictures of certain disabilities saying that people have no excuse to not be in great shape. Sure this guy fought like a motherfucker to look as great as he does, its unfortunately not possible for all, especially related to joint issues or chronic pain. I am really self conscious about how skinny I am, (6'3" 138lbs) would love to change it but i feel like even if i could afford enough food to gain weight I would just get fat lol

[–]tryintofly-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

I don't disagree, but there's a third component I learned through experience: to get ripped, you need to diet like crazy and cut out any fun foods, to the point of starving yourself if you want to sub 5% body fat. That takes more time and energy than lifting and is nowhere near as fun. But yes, everyone can get jacked unless they have very low t levels, so I try to not judge anyone's lifestyle based on appearance.

[–]AdamNJH0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No need to go below 10% bf if going for aesthetics.

[–]Nighthawkdragon8-3 points-2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ik I’m bitching, but my excuse is bad rotator cuffs from an old injury

[–]Virtusvitium-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

This seems like a shit post. Everyone knows getting yoked is alpha. Not everyone makes gains like that. You shouldn't be making gains for pussy alone. Cause if you still suck at spitting game you'll feel defeated. Get yoked to boost your confidence. Then use that confidence to talk to women and get even more confidence. Take a comfortable pace, but always seek improvement. Remember, there's plenty of pussy out there for all of us.

[–]ImAnIronmanBtw-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

I have a massive cock and can last an hour in bed. And fuck like a god. Trust me, i'm okay with just being fit ;)

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
