      will do, but I'm already old (31). As I mentioned here

      I can't do one (1) pushup. Should I do nothing?
      [...]
      mogs me. I hope to achieve your gains.

      I can't even do 1 pushup. I'm so sad, it feels like there's nothing to do about it.

      It's easy to lift a lot of weight targeting any other muscle. I lift more with my triceps than with my chest.

      Unfortunately chest is the most important muscle to look good, and I can't work it. Fuck my life.

        Stop thinking like that, all it takes is time and effot. It sounds like you're already making excuses for yourself because you know it will be difficult.
        I recommend just do calisthenics exercises like pushups, main ones I recommend are pushups, pullups, dips and inverted rows for 6 months - 1 year to build your basic physique and strength. Then you can start doing the typical gym lifts. Before that I don't see a point, you're getting ahead of yourself basically

        Will do. How many reps and sets?
        [...]
        I'm 170lbs 6ft, a little overweight.
        I was never able to do 1 pushup tho. Not even when I was 130lbs.

        >Will do. How many reps and sets?
        Do 5 sets everyday of as many reps as you can manage. Try and start doing pullups and dips too same method 5 sets AMRAP
        Look up online if you can't do 1 rep, there are easier versions for both of these exercises
        Pullups you can do only the negative part (when you go down), and Dips there are assisted versions at gyms which push you up.

        Bro you need to be brutally honest with yourself. You are a weak fuck and its going to take a long time (years) to climb out of that hole. You can do it if you stick with it, but its gonna cost you time, money, effort and leave you sore as fuck. If you can't handle that, I suggest you take up power-walking to stay fit and carry a gun cause you are an easy target.

    Then drop down to 20 lbs and if you can't do that then drop down to 15. As a 117 lb dyel skelly I was limited to 17.5 lbs in each arm first time I tried it, a year later and after gaining 30 lbs I can rep out 50s with little to no fatigue.

        Why are you benching then? You should train your base strength with calisthenics before you try gym lifts
        Do incline pushups on a couch or bench do build up to normal ones

            Okay.
            Then its simply due to lack of activity.
            I'd recommend hitting the track or treadmill at the gym to start off. Possibly while holding 2.5lb weights once you're comfortable a few times in.
            Your main issue is simply lack of muscle use. Starting with weight lifting is going to leave you depressed. So start 'breaking your body in' with some jogging. While it focuses on the legs you do get stimulation for every muscle to a degree. And its a lot easier to begin with.
            You shouldn't be heavy enough to harm your joints.

        you need to start by benching 15 lb dbs (or whatever you can) and work your way up if you actually can't do 1 push up. Make sure you have good form too and don't ego lift or you really aren't progressing.

        Is benching the bar too much for you? Might be worth benching empty bar and add 5lb/session as newbie.

        Not being able to do 1 push up sounds like bait but I'll be a retard and bite it, hope this helps

        Wall pushups then table pushups then chair pushups then knee pushups then standard pushups
        If you manage to get 20 in one variation move to the next one. Once you manage to do 30 strict pushups then consider hitting the bench.

        And please eat your carbs and proteins, your source of weakness could be your lack of energy

          Awful advice, his issue is his strength to weight ratio, he could be a turbo fat or very weak or a combination of both. Anyone can hit bench and easily progress, just start with baby weight and move up. Bodyweight exercises are unfun for many and difficult to track progress due the power to weight ratio I mentioned before.

        >real pushups after too strong for knee pushups.
        When you can blast out 25 real pushups with ease you can go back to weights.
        You need to do pushups 3 times a week. Start with 3 sets of 10 and increase as you get stronger. Most likely will take you a little over a year before you have reached minimum conditioning for weight training.

    BLACKPILL DEPRESSION SOIKEK DEMORALIZATION THREAD

    The only thing you need to do is go to the gym regularly, do the same lifts, get a good stretch and pump, put in some good effort, eat well and sleep well. Are you getting stronger than before? GOOD. If not? Identify the issue. 99.999999% of people have a body that adapts to stimulus, it is LITERALLY that easy. If your body did not adapt to stimulus you would be dead or bed ridden with terminal illness.

    tl;dr FUCK OFF KYS BECAUSE YOUR MINDSET IS POISON FOR THE REST OF HUMANITY AND YOU'RE NGMI.

      that's not what demoralization is. I'm talking about a personal problem that I had my whole life and asking people here how to overcome it, and they are helping me.

        Your first post was not a question and your first reply in the thread was defeatist garbage, sorry for assuming it was yet another demoralization thread however everything else i said in my post is the same.

        Unironically the best advice I can give you is put the blinders on, do not compare to others only look for tips and inspiration. You have damaged your body for 20 years probably it will not be fixed in 1, focus on your session for that day and do not beat yourself for not setting a pr. Zoom out and look at your progression over months and quarters and years when you get to that point. Try a few new things in the gym but stay consistent and build the habit. It is important to have fun and get a good feeling from going not punishing yourself afterwards for not being good enough.
        This is all coming from someone who was skinny fat, man tits, giga autist, social anxiety ridden nerd.
