i assume the x axis depicts how much someone feels like something changes their life and the y axis is how likely something is to actually affect someone

Where can I find /SIG/ generals?
They were a main stay of IST, then the gay mods deleted them because they considered self improvement too general for the fitness board. Problem is, they are far less relevant to other boards so they have no place to stay on IST. There have since been several sig discords which failed for obvious discord fag reasons
>Problem is, they are far less relevant to other boards so they have no place to stay on IST.
This. I hope they come back. It makes more sense for them to be here. It would be useful
Here's what you do. You call it something other than /SIG/... helpful IST images is a good title
fuck jannies fuck mods fuck hiroshimoot
We could make /SIG/ Generals in /b/, but it doesn't seem to be healthy. I'd love it here. Maybe on IST, but here is better
The whitepill and monday's indomitable spirit threads are the best "replacements" so far
Those should come back

THE AXES ARE FUCKING LABELLED, YOU CAMELFUCKER
You can be a mathlet or you can be a methlet but never be both
You're aware of how many people in STEM are on speed, right? Also, that's some really faulty logic
>why yes I do math and workout at the same time while on 100mg's of Adderall, Phenibut and n-methyl-cyclazodone
Reading Rudin's Principles of Mathematical Analysis right now hbu bros?
LMAO stay mid theorycel
Let me know when you’re “analyzing” topographic manifolds
I dunno, I was told to read it to understand Fourier
>right now hbu bros?
Burning through the most typical forms of regression analysis. Currently on discrete logistic growth. Trying to really focus on understanding the proofs for when an equilibrium point is stable/unstable, which required a huge amount of time spend on contraction mappings.
It's hard to find material on these topics tho. Most texts on regression analyis are written from the stand point that the reader is some dumbass biology student that barely passed Calc I. It skips a lot of proofs I need to see.
didn't get beyond precalc in high school. What can I do as a humanities college graduate to mathmaxx bros?
>What can I do as a humanities college graduate to mathmaxx bros?
First learn the basics of single varable differentiation and integration (this is core calculus). I'd recommend Single Variable Calculus by James Stewart as a start (https://www.amazon.ca/Single-Variable-Calculus-James-Stewart/dp/1305266633). You shouldn't go past Chapter 5 until you learn more about abstract math analysis.
So after you know the basics of calculus, study the entirety of A First Course in Mathematical Analysis (https://www.amazon.ca/First-Course-Mathematical-Analysis/dp/0521684242/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1673375903&sr=8-6). This book is gentle with exposing new students to Real Analysis but it will require a few months of effort to get a full understanding of core concepts.
Once you know the basics of calculus and real analysis, you'll have a strong enough foundation to study pretty much every concept in mathematics with some success.
Also recommend watching professor leonard's videos on youtube for whatever your trying to learn if he has videos for it
Study something math-based. If you don't, you won't have the motivation to push through it unless you're more autism than human.
Does counting to 5 count as doing math?
Kind f, five doesn't help you as much as counting in the 8 to 12 or even the 15 to 20 range.
This is the secret to why bodybuilders look better than powerlifters. More counting equals more brain activity which leads to greater mind muscle connection. Everything else is just a larp intended to confuse people. Volume is King.
>taking a cns depressant like Phenibut to workout
I used to do this and it was fucking retarded. Glad I learned my lesson.
How do you even utilize this chart?
Anything less than 0.03 is placebo pseudoscience nonsense
Makes sense, but caffeine is slightly below 0.03 and I'm pretty sure caffeine isn't placebo (not to say that caffeine is necessarily good though, just that it definitely does something).
Is ashwangandha legit? Anyone have long term experiences?
>Is ashwangandha legit? Anyone have long term experiences?
bought some off amazon to try it, it raised my heartrate to a degree that was uncomfortable, like i had just pounded 4 shots of espresso
maybe some people need that, i definitely don't
It may have very slightly improved my sleep, and I don't feel emotion as strongly compared to before I was taking it (could be other factors tho). Don't bother using it for test or some shit but if the above factors seem worth it you could try it.
do you really think caffeine is lifechanging dude?
No of course not, but the guy replied to me saying that anything below 0.03 is placebo pseudoscientific nonsense, and while caffeine obviously is not life changing it definitely does have easily visible and testable effects, so it certainly is not placebo/pseudoscientific.
he meant that its placebo in the sense that it will not change your life, which is what the graph plots, not that they are totally inert compounds.
the x axis is the amount of people that said they used whatever chemical
the y axis is the amount of people that said it was "life changing"
Don't waste your time on anything that has an efficacy rating lower than 0.10, with the exception of weightlifting.

Close to what I used to do except without curls on chest and back day and with pullups
>mfw this is basically my routine which i have developed by myself based on what i feel like doing and goes nice together
did i post it here while drunk or something
>tfw typed my routine wrong and it's forever cemented with this pic
Damn, I kneel. What was wrong about that routine pic?
Day 5 is wrong and day 7 is completely fucked. I don't know what the fuck was wrong with me when I typed it out. This is my actual corrected routine, I've added wrist curls since that pic was made
Db pullovers 3x10
Bb rows 3x8
Db flyes 3x10
Db press 3x10
Cb Close Grip Curls 3x8 (now with fat gripz)
Cb wrist curls 3x12 (also fat gripz)
Calf raises 3x25
Front squats 3x8
Lat raises 3x10
Bb shrugs 3x15
Cb Close Grip Curls 4x8 (higher intensity)
Db front raises 4x16
Seated triceps extensions 4x10
Cb wrist curls 4x12
Same as day 1
Same as day 2
Makes sense I guess. Day 2 seems like a more proper leg day
guys whats day 8 mean? I'm supposed to move day one of the routine one day forward or what ?
Means you should rest on day 8 and start over again next day
Is Cb cambered bar?
curl bar/ez bar, I should have specified
im not gonna read all that
i clearly need to, because I have no idea what the fuck this chart is trying to tell me. as far as I can tell, the bottom right is good, and the rest is bad?
You're low IQ, this is simple pattern recognition
spoonfeed me, now. I won't ask nicely again.
I still don't understand what "Otter" mode is, whatever it is it sounds gay as fuck. Are you all homosexuals on this board?
Because you are clearly a newgay
Ottermode was named for a "Swimmers body" for obvious reasons. So if it's lean, with medium muscle then it's generally "ottermode".
I don't care about your gay fantasies moron.
hairy skinny guys
Would this work if I did curls, OHP and squats?
Curls are absolutely useless and pull-ups are the kings of back exercises.
>Curls are absolutely useless

>Cocaine less impactful than a "Dawn Simulator"
This is some good shit. Who made this?
nobody ever said their life got better after doing cocaine
That's not what the graph says. It reads "probability of being life-changing" the graph png is named "placebos."
It is saying that cocaine is more of a placebo than a fucking Dawn Simulator.
This isn't real
Yes it is, if you ever lost some of that fat gut you would know this.
The woosh effect is real for some people, but it's not because the cells fill with water.
This didn't happen to me. I just stopped losing weight and my doctor blamed it on a stubborn setpoint and told me that the body wants to maintain weight, even an unhealthy one. He told me to exercise more (weights and cardio) and gave me semaglutide to break the plateau since doing more caloric restriction could be dangerous. I lost 22lbs. Then it became backordered. At least I haven't gained any weight back. It seems like my body really does want to maintain whatever weight it happens to be. At any rate, the water thing is horseshit. That doesn't happen, and even if it did, it wouldn't result in any noticeable change due to the small available volume to store water in the cells.
>trying to get less sleep
i unironically stayed on a 4-5 hour per night sleep routine for like 5 weeks
i stopped after i hit a deer on the highway in broad daylight
>these are the people giving you sleep advice
You will become a zombie
I did ~2 / night for like 3 months while on meth
I went completely psychotic and could not distinguish reality from delusion.
where to cop epobis, OP; sounds way too good to be true
4x6 has been amazing for me...
Years of 3x3, 3x8 etc to get a nice mix of strength and hypertrophy, then I started 4x6 and it seem to satisfy both to a degree but mainly hypertrohpy, while allowing me to focus on strength every other week.
>No fap that low
garden gnome study
no fap is for low test incels
noporn is what works
Someone tried that workout and wore his knees out from the running alone within some weeks.
Just another made up meme workout that "sounds" good to normies.
I'd definitely say 6 km of WALKING, 40 situps/abs calistenics exercise, 50-100 pushups per day, and 30 squats per day is a lot better (on top of already exercising with gym+martial arts)
Yeah, the running is the most difficult part. But I don't think it will always fuck up your knees like that, he probably did something wrong, a lot of athletes run more than that daily
>6km of walking
Are people really that sedentary that they dont even walk for 6km on a regular day???
6km daily is highly irregular even for gymrats
Unless you live in a city or do manual labor, it's not that common
based, here's how to into math
qrd on phenibut?
There was a time period when it was spammed here constantly.
>Negative chance of being life changing
I'm throwing in the towel on this. I don't get this chart
i'm pretty sure it means life changing in a good way, not a have a nice day type way
Wtf is this? Is stuff in the right side supposed to be good or bad?
Read the fucking x and y axis
>krokodil would not be life changing
who said it had to be for the better?
Most useless flow chart ever Jesus Christ. Just make a simple list:
>Lift more weight
>And/or more sets/reps
>And/or slower reps
It really isn't this complicated.
Pick a rep range e.g. 8-12,
Lift weights if you get <8, then you go down 2.5kg,
If you get >12 then you go up 2.5kg.
That's literally it.
Congrats baby's first progresion.
Unironically this is all you need for infinite gains, only other thing I'd like to add is that a static rep staircase (don't really know what to call it bc I've never seen it anywhere else) is really good for certain movements. What I mean is instead of doing say 3x8 you do 9/8/7 reps, and you microload by 1kg/2lb when you feel like you can take the increase. This works really well on some movements where adding reps feels nightmarishly difficult but adding a small amount of weight hardly feels any different from before, and it also prevents you from sandbagging (eg 3x8 might be RPE 7 on the first set, RPE 8 on the second, and RPE 9 on the last, while 9/8/7 would be roughly RPE 9 on all sets)
big agree, i guess it's like a micro pyramid.
Of course it gets a little more complicated as you get nearer to your genetic limits.
As progression slows down yes it would be a bit annoying as random fluctuations in performance would affect that pyramid setup more as it would take longer to progress, but you could fix this by either intentionally doing it at a lower RPE so that even if you are a bit weaker one day you can still complete the sets, or you could have a range (meaning 9-7/8-6/7-5) to account for those fluctuations.
checked. basically this. works for any rep range really. another thing you can do is keep reps the same across sets of increasing weights, which I find to be good for getting through plateaus
>getting more sleep and weightlifting not absolutely blowing the other shit out of the water
>shrooms, medication, and fad diets also being measured
who made this lmao
shrooms are definitely life changing. I haven't met a single person who didn't change their whole perspective of the world from it. The chart does seem like a load of bull, though. "likelihood of being life-changing" is not something that can be accurately measured, so the whole chart is useless. Throw in the fact that some people are gonna rate things as life changing cause they changed their life for the worse, and you have yourself a complete mess. Whoever made this clearly never studied any kind of science
Is it the good or the bad kind of change
Usually good. They make your mind more malleable, but if you're in a bad place they can bake in bad attitudes
I quit smoking with shrooms. Went to roll a ciggy and just started asking myself "do I actually like smoking?" Decided I didn't and stopped then and there.
Won't say I wasn't tempted afterwards, but after 4 years of smoking 30 a day it was piss easy compared to every time I've tried to quit previously.
yeah, cutting your tongue out is also life changing
shrooms are pharmakeia and fuck with the noetic eye, you will lose your soul before you gain anything from it, you just won't be aware of it. Psychedelics are the worst thing in the world.
some dont belong on this list
How do you figure? I don't know who any of the assholes in the picture are except for Trudeau and he definitely belongs. The guy in the bottom right with the glasses and yellow tie looks like maybe he was photographed while talking and it just happened to have his mouth a little wide open so I'll possibly cut him some slack.
What're the implications of this continuum? Are hinge movements entirely dependent upon an individual's leverages and moment arms or are they still useful for building muscle mass and strength? I'm inclined to believe it's still the latter
The bottom tier has some illegal activities
>pushups before bed
Actually those are pretty legit
Thanks for the epic photo
Fucking deadly thanks man!!
Fuck that's a dense image
so basically you have to have a small head
guy on the left has a very similar frame to the guy on the left
except he has a bigger head and the guy on the right has more muscle mass
>left: low test
>right: high test
How is this helpful for IST? You can't change your frame.
Why is the top left square colored in green? Isn't the more ratings the better ?
>he doesn't have a PhD in math lmao
>not making 300k starting lmao
Boost your dick booster
>Number of ratings
What does the x axis mean?
qrd on afobazole?
man... seeing it in a visual aid like this is really encouraging.

Where can you buy oxytocin?
I stopped reading there
I need the faggy twinkbod achievement guide STAT.
