      Why does he refuse to understand or even acknowledge the existence of Starting Strength (except once on some podcast)? He makes videos targeted at novices but his workout advice is clearly focused on high level training. It's kind of strange honestly.

      This. Just lift and once you hit a plateau, eat more protein/calories, get 8 hours of sleep, and make sure you're doing juuuust a little more each workout (increase reps/weight). It's that easy.

"Just hit each muscle group twice a week with basic compounds like benchpress, pullups, squats" is perfectly reasonable advice for beginners and you should absolutely be able to figure it out from there. If you can't then you're a lost cause.

                What the frick do you even want? The basic advice is simple, do compound movements and hit every muscle group 2-3 times a week. Tutorials for these basic movements are everywhere on youtube hundreds of times and compound lift based beginner programms are also abundant. All of them work and they are pretty much optimal.

            The answer to all of your dumbass scenarios is literally just pick any fricking option and stick with it. From there you'll figure out what works for you and what doesn't. This whole thing you do where you sit around doing nothing while you wait for someone else to hand you the thing that's exactly perfect for exactly what you want to accomplish is the reason why you're small, weak, depressed, and can't draw.

            And because I know you're gonna fricking do it, don't even come back to me with that

              it's almost like there are so many bad options that with a little bit of hand holding you can guide someone in a better direction that works for them. rather than just repeating "just pick an option bro" and pretending like you're helping someone. my whole point comes down to this: there is good advice and bad advice. the people who give bad advice should not pat themselves on the back thinking they're giving good advice. telling someone they suck because they're a beginner and don't know where to start isn't being helpful"

Whether it's lifting, drawing, playing an instrument, or whatever else, if you want to get good at it there's no way around the grind. There is no special trick, there is no secret to it, no magic, it's just fricking do the work. Someone telling you to just fricking do the work doesn't become bad advice just because you can't hack it, it was just good advice you failed to follow.

              again, i have no problem with this stuff. i am simply pointing out the difference between useful advice and useless "advice." i am pointing out that there are various learning gaps among beginner lifters, and that a vague platitude that seems like useful information won't help someone who has no context for that information. the dumb motherfrickers who get big and strong have friends helping them, or some other context. maybe it's not even about being dumb vs smart. maybe some people just have ocd or a lot of anxiety and need some additional guidance and context before they feel confident enough to get on a piece of equipment at a public gym. maybe the dumb overconfident guys just don't give a shit and that's why they succeed.

                When you are absolute begginer and start from zero, no, you just need to practice. The only pitfall you can fall into at this point is not to work.

        If you cannot draw basic shapes, you literally just need to draw more, what other solution to this particular problem can be? There are no fricking trick. When things become complicated and you want advice how to paint animal fur in dynamic scenes or some other shit, some tips can help.
        Same with lifting, if you are newb, you just need consistency, some technique and hard work, when you will need to break a plateau on your deadlift, yeah, mb some tips will help you, but before that just fricking lift.

      At least stickies and wikis exist. 99% of what you can get out of IST is explained better in the sticky than it would be in here.

      Lifting is different because it requires a lot of trial and error, as there’s no objectively correct way to do it. Ultimately the best routine is whichever you can actually stick to

      It's difficult to convey the beginning stages of lifting to a newbie because they seem intuitive, but you end up having to iron out a lot of stupid shit in the process. Sure the habit formation is easy, but clearing out shit like bad form / overtraining / poor rest etc. requires some understanding of the signs and causes of each, which is best conveyed to a newbie by an experienced lifter. I may have taught myself what to look out for, but shit, there are a bunch of tards on here that b***h about joints / sleep / pain and don't know the cause because nobody even pointed them to basic resources. At least we have a sticky... that barely scratches the surface.

      I taught myself what little I know, but thankfully there are plenty of resources out there you can Google / pirate to teach yourself without much experience. Anything you wanted to do specifically? I'm a financelet, so I could use some help from you in exchange.

          the point is that that anon needs to be spoonfed everything because he's incapable of looking up the basics on his own. It's one thing to ask something specific after you've done a modicum research, another is to ask lazy generic questions like "how do I put on muscle mass?", in which case it's no wonder people can't be bothered to answer you in detail. There's a reason why "read the sticky" is such a common answer here

          The mistake you're making is thinking the responsibility is on strangers to educate the poster on material that is abundantly available all over the internet. If someone can't take the initiative to find training material, how would they ever have the initiative to start or the willpower to train consistently?
          Posting "stats" with no way to verify them in order to bolster your argument is pathetic and reads like cope.

          If you can figure out a squat, push up, or pull up, thats on you.
          The point os to just do anything cuz it gets the blood moving and causes something to happen to build upon. The specifics don't matter at that level. They're not tell you to do power cleans.
          Of pretending to sit and standing back up before you fall is too complex, please just wear a sign from now on that says you're stupid, so the rest of us will know right away and treat you more appropriate

    kek left is what goes through my mind. I don't know if what I eat is actually benefits me. For example it says on a package 15g protein per 100g. But is that true? For example I eat 400g of cottage cheese per day, it says 18g protein per 100g. But I really doubt I get 72g of protein just from cottage cheese.
    Also I eat 10 eggs every morning, but they are only semicooked. So I have a very slopped fried eggs, are they bad/good? How many calories? How many proteins?

      Start worrying about that shit when you're an elite level professional athlete and that level of optimization can mean the difference between a win or a loss. If you're the type of person who eats 10 eggs every morning then you're not going to struggle with protein.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Compounds are basically any exercise that is using several muscle groups together to perform it. The big five are normally considered as the bench press, squat, deadlift, overhead press and pullup/barbell row; but there are plenty of others.

      The bench press for example uses chest, front delts and triceps primarily. A deadlift uses your glutes and hamstrings, while also incorporating your spinal erectors, lats, abdominal muscles, traps mainly isometrically.

      Yeah, why not. You could do worse.
      Get access to some equipment if you actually want to build strength, or you can commit to getting autistically into calisthenics. Keep in mind that calisthenics will give you a way different (read: worse) body than gym training, but some guys are into that lifestyle.

    Lifting will only improve your image by about 10% or so. You still need a good looking face, hair, money, social status, come from a good family, have a good personality and charisma.
    Lifting kind of becomes a drag once you realize it's sort of pointless. Most people do it because they have nothing else to do and also get socialize with others a little bit. The gym is full of incels, average people and wagies.

    As soon as you use the word "just" when talking to someone who doesn't already do something, you are admitting you are not a reliable source of information due to lack of perspective. Whether that's physical health, mental health, dating, or any other set of skills/habits. Next time you find yourself typing "just..." go ahead and just don't reply instead
