    Don't start complaining until after a year. Takes time for your hormones to adjust. Don't pussy out and look for excuses to throw a pity party or ask others to tell you to give up. If you aren't soaked in sweat by the end of your workout you're not trying hard enough.

      Thanks. My legs give out bc of strain, but I get back up. I make sure I'm fricking drenched.

      I'll keep trying for a year. I'm committing to this, frick it.

      Any advice on how to not throw up though? It's legit making working out unbearable.

          BMI is 23.

          Feel strongly nauseated after core workout especially. It might be GERD fricking with me.

            you probabbly eat to close to workout, wait an hour at minimum
            or you're not hydrated enough, or maybe you're going too hard for a beginner. build up intesity slowly. godspeed anon you WILL get yourself out of this.

    >feel like throwing up

    You’re going way too hard for your current level of conditioning, scale it back.

    30-45 mins of cardio 2-3x per week keeping your heart rate around 130bpm will build a decent aerobic base over a few weeks and it’s super easy. You’ll feel good after it rather than destroyed. Then you can ramp it up and start doing longer, harder or adding HIIT.

    Then just do like 10 sets per major muscle group spread out over the week and find out what lifts you like. Doesn’t have to be to failure, just until a rep or two shy of failure. Few weeks of that and you’ll have some muscle built and you’ll know whether you want to start lifting heavy or just getting a pump etc.

        different anon here: depending on your starting level of fitness, it can be just brisk walking. A good rule of thumb is that if you couldn't talk while doing it you're going too hard. If you have any pulse measurement available, look up zone 2 exercise and stay in that range.

          Treadmill/cycling/elliptical/rower/running at heart rate between 130-150. Anything really. Cardio machines are nice for low impact and keeping your heart rate consistent. You should be able to carry on a conversation but not sing.

          I personally enjoy treadmill walking at max incline at 3.5kph

    I've been working out 6 years and am pretty jacked but still feel depressed
    Tried Zogpills (SSRIs), meditation, psychedelics etc.
    The only confounding variables are that I have an ugly face and no friends since middle school.
    If you got those under control you will definitely make it

    "no pain no gain" is basically bullshit. you don't have to push yourself to nausea to see massive benefits from exercise. zone 2 cardio is all the rage right now. it's hard to hear this, but if you are pushing yourself at very high intensity every time, you are very likely to burn out and give up all together. i've seen it happen to so many of my friends. take it easy, be consistent, make exercise part of your regular routine.
