5 years ago I didn't know any of this existed, now it controls my whole life. I see it everywhere. My mood for an entire week depends on what angle i catch myself in the mirror.
IST has guided me to physical strength at the cost of my sanity. Ignorance truly is bliss

        Different anon, it's IST. A bunch of nonsense that people throw around when the board is specifically for people who want to discuss their hobby or get into the hobby of fitness. Instead it's full of doomers, grifters, and trolls, and if you aren't careful, it'll brainwash you.

      Recently some whiny pussy (2 year old man) posted in a thread on facebook (yeah, I shitpost) a picture of himself crying a single tear down his cheek on a video game page. like 30 people, I shit you not, were validating this behavior and telling him how he's going to be okay.

      I quite reasonably said that none of this is helping that man, because this behavior is undeniably pathetic and he will never stop it and develop grown man coping skills without some social incentive to do so.

      Dozens of people proceeded to tell me how cruel I am, how i'm a narcissistic sociopath, how I love to see people suffer to feel superior, and how I'm a toxically masculine "Chad" who doesn't know anything because all I do is "Chase Thots" and try to look like Joe Rogan.

      Fricking baffling man. I know this is only tangentially related to your post, but holy shit i'm just disheartened at the level of holy shit homosexualry and intentional weak b***hification that has overtaken our society. I didn't say "don't show feelings or reach out to people." I goddamn said "You're in your twenties, don't post pictures of yourself crying on social media for pity from strangers." Apparently this makes me Ted goddamn Bundy because the only taboo left in the world is having any conviction at all.

        The determental effects of gooning take place on a physical, mental, social, and most importantly, spiritual level. It cannot be understated just how much damage gooning does to the purity of one's soul. One may think that short term, instant gratification via pornography is a victimless crime, but this is not true. You betray yourself most of all. The shame you feel cannot be rationalised. There are no proud gooners. God is always watching, anon.

    Nah. Maybe it's because I don't get all my fitness advice from this board but getting into all this stuff has improved my outlook a lot. I used to think I was irredeemably ugly and a loser and whatever (and still kind of do) but now I know I can change the way I look through effort and that the potential to be way more ripped than I ever imagined is in me, waiting to be actualized.

    I had everything issues before IST. Self hatred, lots of bullying as a child because my mother really hammered into me that I shouldn't fight back and my dad didn't really know how to defend himself because he had troubles for fighting and drinking in the army and didn't want me to get in trouble too. I was a pretty big pussy (still am in a lot of ways) and had terrible self esteem until I got older and moved out / made some friends, got a GF, and learned to stick up for myself.

    At first yes, but slowly as I spent more time here, exposed to the kind of unintelligent drivel that's passed as fact, the coomers and demoralisers, I became doubtful IST. Maybe you weren't all the internet cool guys I had fooled myself into believing. Maybe like 80% of you barely even have any knowledge on exercise and nutrition beyond a high school class or a quickly skimmed over technique yt video.
    Then I actually started getting compliments irl and came to the conclusion that trying to appeal to the group of schizophrenic, body dysmorphic, self hating, porn addled zoomer narcissists that have infested the board post covid is beyond folly, it's detrimental to ones wellbeing.

    The fact of the matter is people only care about how good you look, nothing else.

    The problem is, you're a fricking woman. Stop focusing on your aesthetic and man up. This doesn't mean become fat and stop trying. It means shave your head and get some job skills and stop worrying about the shit you can't change.

      How?
      And then if i stop worring about this, what's to stop me becoming complacent about other things in life, like my job, money, health?

      Geniune question as I have a very neurotic personality and tend to see things as "all or nothing"

    Low ass strength standards nobody really has godly chest shoulders and lats so it's ez, and "muh legs," easy to grow with one powerlifting block.

    Nobody is at 5pl8s for reps unless roided here, which is low in measly ass powerlifting meets.

    Not IST per se but social media as a whole. There's been a really big push towards lookism in the last decade.
    Now of course there's always been the ~~*beauty*~~ israelite but recently it's been turned up to 11 with all the gym culture that basically if you're not perfect then you're worthless.

    This place never made my self image worse. But for a while it did ruin my opinion of others. I started judging others by their physiques. After 3-4 years on IST. Precovid, this place was more about how people into lifting and fitness are superior to others. Then I literally joined a gymshark wannabe group where we met irl. The whole thing was a crapshoot. And wannabe influencers are insufferable. The people who powerlift in my gym were pretty cool but a few of them I could tell were messed up in the head and were trying to to outfit something bad in their lives.

    So anyway, I don’t have an opinion on fitness bros anymore. They’re just people who happen to workout. I still laugh at fat people tho.

      I don't do that tbh, there are some fine people among fats. I've met fat people with very kind souls, funny, helpful, with good and honest intentions, professionals, and good friends.
      A large number of fats are ugly on the inside too ngl, but I'm not as quick to judge now.

        No ur right. I married into a family of lots of fats. Not my wife, but almost everyone else. They are mostly very competent, good Christians who are very intelligent and kind. But I know they’re all trying to lose weight or want to be thinner. I was fat too and I know what it takes to exit fatmode. I know the ones in my family are too comfortable to make any real changes. I’m not gonna cry about it so I just laugh.
