So i posted here last month about discovering this sub and hitting the gym hard. My life has literally turned 180 degrees around and it is pretty sick. College friends I haven't talked to in years are calling me out of the blue wanting to hang out. Girls are giving me compliments and I haven't even started bulking up yet, can't wait till I hit that point. I recommitted to my personal finances, stopped being a lazy fuck, and now have a plan to be out of mommy and daddy's by the start of next year. I also have a new plan recently conceived to start getting out of the house and meet new people. Here are some ideas I've been toying around with:

  • Buying a book off the r/fitness sidebar and following the plan. Right now I just kinda guess good exercises with barbells and dumbbells and since I've started getting stronger I would like to follow a guide both to keep me focused and to improve quicker.

  • Find and attend local poker games. I think it would be a great way to meet new people. I'm a little concerned about seediness but I'll be ok.

  • Learn to play the piano. I haven't touched my keyboard since college and this self-improvement stuff has me really wanting to branch out. All I need are some headphones so my parents don't go bonkers listening to me hit sour notes.

Thanks again, TRP!

I just did a TON of research on the pianos available, I settled on this one. I can't tell you how happy I am with the weighted key quality and it even has MIDI out, and I like to do some music on the computer. Best value out there, trust me. I put enough hours into searching.

Add it to the wishlist lol

For a lifting regimen I'd suggest StrongLifts 5x5, you don't need to pay anything and the program works well.

And for the poker games, at least for me I never ran into an issue with seediness. Mainly older guys though, retired vets and the like.

Wow thanks for the reply. I've been working more hours the past few weeks so haven't been getting out as much but am definitely interested in the workout program.

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