    severe starvation on a photoshoot safari. our food was contaminated with dirty water when we drove through deep water with a snorkle the jeep hit a stone and flooded rapidly. I always do body weight exercises and I was liberal with my food at first but I got very sick from eating it and could not maintain a healthy diet. Eventually I grew so weak I was unable to stand due to malnutrition and my joints started wobbling like I snapped them when that wasn't the case. As soon as I got back home and ate right I got fat but it healed after a month.

      Belts make things safer

        false. no belt forces you to work your core and humbles you enough to progress slowly.

            I'm not that guy, but I lift beltless/strapless/wrapless and am progressing well and safely, have never had an injury.

                "Science" is a collection of methodologies for critical analysis. Science doesn't say what is and is not true, science is the process by which we measure and quantify the world. A blind reliance on "science" ignores that our understanding of the world is mutable, and can change in the blink of an eye.

                Also any jackass can say science in their blog title. So much of the "fitness industry" claims to be "evidence based" while skimming journal abstracts and using vocabulary they barely understand to baffle the consumer, and trick them into thinking they are smarter than they are.

        You have your loved one help you do the rep, or just let it crush you mid way through, either works really.

      what advice do you have to share? what mistake did you make?

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Probably it was overuse. I really felt like I could squat 200kg on Christmas day if I upped my volume, so I went from squatting 3x a week (and deadlifting 3x a week) to squatting 4x a week and deadlifting only once.

        I refused to accept that I was actually injured and kept trying to do the same training which lead to me re-aggravating it many times over. Even to this day I can still kind of feel my back, even if I haven't suffered any re-aggravation since last year the thought is always on my mind. Low back is always more of a bitch than any other injury so you have to take it seriously when it happens

            Squatting too much isn't an issue itself; only if you aren't prepared for it. Some people squat everyday and they're fine. They've just worked up to it

      do you still lift? what's your routine like?

      • 3 weeks ago

        Still lift, though there have been long bouts where I quit lifting in those 10 years. Current routine is 5/3/1 BBB with a few modifications. Thankfully my back is good, but I'm still a pussy when I squat. Shit mentally scared me tbh

    I used to do sl 5x5 and just willed myself through the sets. Up 5lbs each workout and made it to 275 5x5 in my home gym till I ran out of weights.

    One time I fucked up my breathing and I blacked out on the way up.

    Couple years later I let my low back fatigue get too high and damaged myself. Now I get the tingles in my feet.

    Now I do front squats, and make sure to do proper deadlift form and it's all good.

      Sounds good anon.

      For some reason a lot of people have an incredible tolerance for permanently damaging themselves when it comes to lifting weights. I doubt you'd get into a car with someone who routinely crashes every few years leaving serious injuries with the passengers, why do it with the gym when there's literally zero need for it.

    Science is just one method of understanding the world. If you want to manage a football team you don't get a bunch of scientists and say science says this guy should play here and do this. While science may play a significant part in professional sports nowadays, it doesn't have all the answers, especially with how corrupt it is these days.

    I've failed reps before but I always have the safety pins so I never snapped myself
    One time I failed racking my bench and it slipped towards my head but I got out of the way in time
