Have you been able to successfully combine lifting with a hobby like League of Legends?

Have you been able to successfully combine lifting with a hobby like League of Legends? I have been lifting successfully for 2 years now and achieving moderate weights (2pl8 squat) but I moved back in with mom and started playing League

I am considering quitting League and moving back out again but my parents are telling me I'm just wasting my money on rent and wasting my time "spending all day at the gym for nothing", mom is obese and both mom and dad recently had a heart attack

I love hugging my mom but I'm 26 and I'm not sure this kind of lifestyle works for me anymore.

Basically how do you balance between League and lifting?

    Dude. Youre 26. You shouldn't be playing time sink video games anymore. Quit league. Keep the gym. Go get a job.

      But my mom is gonna feel alone? She told me "you had no right to move 1000 km away from me", I only agreed to stay a bit longer because she told me I needed to keep her company to save her from my dad who she says is "abusive"

      I feel guilty as frick leaving her man. They both had heart attacks last year

              Bro by 26 you should have a career and be financially independent and you wouldn't want to move away from your parents because you want them to see their grandkids often

                that is bullshit in todays world. maybe for 90s kids or earlier but newer parents coddled and stunted their kids developments, not to mention the school system becoming absolute moron trainers. unfortunately people don't even start to get their shit together until they're 30

        Your mother has a guilt-based psychological hold over you and she is putting her own interests above yours. This is toxic, pathological parenting and in the same vein as Munchausen by proxy. She is infantilizing you and trying to keep you from moving on with your life and attaining normal developmental milestones.

        I have kids and I would NEVER do this to them. They are more important than I am and their well-being and success supersedes my own especially when I’m old and infirm. I also know that guilting them into spending time with me is sinister and despicable. My mother in law has this hold over her entire family but thankfully my wife has managed to break free after being with me, getting some distance and new perspectives. She is especially cognizant of this behavior and a big part of her parenting approach is identifying and avoiding these behaviors like it’s the Black Plague.

        Yes you love your mother and yes she loves you but that doesn’t mean you need to gravitate around her for the rest of her life (and the rest of your youth). Frick timesuck video games, especially when you’re 26, and you need to start eking out your own life not live like a child in your parents’ home for mommy’s sake. Explore your relationship with her and her past behavior because from two posts alone I can tell it is pathological.

        Are you asking us if your mom will feel alone? What's with this new shit where the question mark is used as some sort of inflection symbol?

        Damn thats only 100kg squat. No offense but after 2 years i could squat 135kg?

        Are you asking if you could squat that? How would we know?

    Being banned from that Black person game was one of the best things that happened to me, after joining a gym that is.

    I'm surprised you even have time, energy or patience to play that shit game if you're working out (and im assuming working).

    If I were you I'd just limit my LoL to ARAMS with friends/egirls and go join a boxing/MMA gym or something, because league is such a disgusting waste of time.

    I first played league in the maokai patch it was probably 2010 or 11. The game was so good and had so much SOUL in the community for like the first 2 seasons then became shite around the time they got bought out by chinese megacorps. If you played back then you know what I mean. After the mid 2010s it was just a joke

        How long have you been playing league for? Playing that game means playing for 6 hours a day or more. Look at all the pro league players. Besides T1 they are all perma-dyel or hamplanets. This game ruins lives, it is basically heroin without the fun. Try playing something where games don’t last an hour and you won’t get banned for leaving. I know climbing a ranked ladder is fun, but it is an empty kind of fun that freemium games use to keep people playing. As a person who used to be a terminal league player I can say that it’s not worth it. Casual gaming is the only kind of gaming you won’t eventually feel guilty or stupid for sinking so much time into.

    Videogames are not a hobby, they are a past time. They should never be anything but something you do to fill time when there's nothing else to do. If you can't skip out on them or make time by reducing the time you would have spent playing games, you have a problem. It's called an addiction.

    So you lifted for like 8 weeks? 225 squat is lightweight baby, if you trained squat 2x a week for 8 weeks and did accessories you'd hit 100kg easy.

    It’s all about making sure video games don’t interfere with your life responsibilities. Perhaps video games are a bit worse because they can be addictive. But if you’re a loser, it’s not because of video games, it’s because of a lack of willpower. Plenty of successful people play video games

                Why do brokies always seethe so hard whenever someone makes good money?

                Six figures is not good money, period, end of story. It's not 2003 anymore. The only reason any of you get paid what you do in the first place is that we live in a time of artificial prosperity propped up by endless money printing and corporations run by women don't suffer from being bad with finances and making decisions like hiring Jeffrey here to pretend to work all day at his house while playing League of Legends. He'll be the first to go when times get rough then he'll be on here complaining about how capitialism has failed because he got fired over Zoom even though he never set foot in a physical office the whole time he worked for them.

                Six figs is absolutely still good money. I mean maybe not $100k anymore due to inflation. But $150k+ is still amazing for most areas of the country. Most jobs are capping out at $200k total comp so idk what you’re comparing this to. Millionaires? Lmao

            Are you misunderstanding something?
            Indian programmers typically don't make 6 figures, and this is definitely true for Indians living in India.
            That's why companies are outsourcing webdev jobs to them, so they don't have to pay as much.
