is training leg press worth it if your spine is too bad to do squats? Posted on May 11, 2023 by Anonymous is training leg press worth it if your spine is too bad to do squats?
I wonder which larping virgin wrote that lmao.
It's true, tho', been all my life skinny, had a gf she always said she prefer skinny boys like me, ffw I was unhappy, dump her in good terms, ffw we met for a coffee like good old times, "OMG anon, now you're stronger" while touching pecs and back, she wants to meet again, we viciously fuck for a couple of months, she was just too horny, told me she really likes the change. Idk man, women just don't know what they want.
>Some dude share experiences I've never feel or live
>So I must project my rage and incelness
>women just don't know what they want.
And I tell people this all the time. Guys get really demotivated by the stuff they read on social media that women say. You've gotta understand this is not how they feel. It's just a sort of ritual for social promotion and adherence. They see everyone else saying these things, so they jump on board. You get a woman face to face and charm her, and all those "standards" she claims to have go right out the window.
Completely on point, fren. I can't count so many times I've met and talked to people who said something and then just did the opposite. It's just basic human behaviour on a lot of things, but It looks that women are more prone to that attitude when it comes to dating preferences.
My gf told me she doesn't want children or getting married, doesn't want to live in a country I want to live. I told her I am going to get married, have children and move to the country I want and my wife is going to be happy. If she does not want to be part of my future, then there's the door. In the end, we moved to the country I wanted, we got married, had 3 kids that are all in school. We travel a lot (homeschooling during travels) and couldn't be happier.
Many such cases. If you would have done all that she said she wanted, she would have subconsciously lost respect for you. Good for you for not being a bitch
how much $ do you make? this will never work for a poorfag
>gf finds me attractive
>ex-gf finds me attractive
>"wtf this bitch crazy. women amirite?"
Sounds like she always found you attractive, regardless of your physique. I can't imagine why, you sound massively vapid.
>women just don’t know what they want
most important thing you will read today. don’t live your life and model yourself based on what women say they want.
What woman say and what woman do 2 completely different things, focus on the 2nd and youre set
>focus on the 2nd
not even that, focus on what you want and go after it unashamedly. the women will come naturally. “Just be yourself” is unironically the most profound and important advice you could ever receive
>women just don't know what they want.
The redditor who wrote the post in the op is a gay man in a gay marrige not a woman.
All my gfs have both complemented my body and tried to stop me from going to the gym.
Not sure what their thought process is.
There's a reason why women pretend to like the dad bod meme as they want to be the attractive one in the relationship. Hard to control a man when he's fit and muscular, which opens the doors for other women to compete for you.
Even my gf stops me by encouraging me to eat more food and gets dumbfounded that I still look fit.
>pretend to like the dad bod meme
If they really prefer their partner to be less attractive than them (for whatever reason), why is it pretending?
It's just the typical "I want this for a one night stand, but this for a relationship"
you should pay attention to the women who actually say this, like go click on their social media profiles and the vast majority of women who like fat dudes are obese themselves. If they aren't then when they say "dad bod" they have no idea what the body of someone who got fat and stopped working out actually looks like and think dad bod means someone who's just big and shredded like Chris Hemsworth.
This is what women actually have in mind when they say like 'dad bods'
His chest looks really under developed here
If she's the attractive one the power dynamic shifts in her favour. She can extract more resources while giving back less. Women know this instinctively.
It's also a shit test. She's testing if you're only lifting to extract resources from her (sex) or just because you honestly like it. Women hate the first type of lifters because it feels like you're manipulating her and being fake. They want to break your façade.
>She's testing if you're only lifting to extract resources from her (sex) or just because you honestly like it. Women hate the first type of lifters because it feels like you're manipulating her and being fake. They want to break your façade
more likely to test if you'd put aside your priorities for her woman nonsense (literally being more submissive than her), which triggers a primal revulsion in a woman for a good reason
It all boils down to the same thing. They want a man who is naturally inclined to be dominant, charismatic, strong and attractive to produce the highest quality offspring possible.
It's why their advice is always "just be urself" and why they hate PUAs, hair transplants and weightlifters who lift for pussy instead of health benefits. They see it as cheating the system.
it's not a LARP at all going to the gym revived my dying sex life with my gf, went from obese to fit and she suddenly got back her "sex drive" again. She also actually compliments my body now when she never did before and she'll point out things like my arms and shoulders.
It made me upset at first but I realized that's how all women are and if you're not fit she's just settling. Get IST or suffer.
It's been going the other way for me. I was fat, pushing obeast, now I'm down 100 lbs and have muscles I didn't have when getting married. But my wife isn't as interested like she used to be. I'm starting to think she liked me fatter, though she would never admit that.
>But my wife isn't as interested like she used to be
She’s jealous, insecure, envious, and bitter.
She’s jealous you’re able to look good. Insecure you’ll find someone else. Envious of being fit. Bitter that she can’t instagram away 30lbs irl.
All women are like this and don’t let any of the r*ddit retards tell you different.
I know a lot of guys are probably like "my wife isn't like that" but I really do think that. I'm skinnier and more built now then when we met, dated, and married. Most of the time we were together i was about 250-260 lbs, but then ballooned up to over 300. I'm now at 187 as of today. I think she just liked my body type before and is not as crazy about it now. We still are intimite but not as often as we used to.
especially if you’re married. you think she likes fat guys but if she ever cheated on you, it wouldn’t be with a fat dude
>virgin larps as a woman to promote bodybuilding for men
You are a huuuuge retard
It’s true, too bad it means nothing because the female won’t do shit to improve her physical appearance
she will, if she knows you want to be with her but won't put up with it
Eh it sorta sucks. Do hack squats and Nordic curls. Maybe hip thrusts too idk
Imagine anyone believing a woman wrote that
>Moon-faced chubby woman blogposter
>overshares on an autistic sex forum
>to receive a dopamine hit
>because her fat basedhusband dropped from 280lbs to 250lbs
>This is somehow unlikely
I think you underestimate the mundane degeneracy of plain-looking women
How bad exactly? You can always work on rehabing your spine till the point you can squat and you don't need to squat 500+ lbs right away. Your body has time to adapt.
In fact leg pressing with technique similar to your squat will make your squat grow. Just hit some hamstring curls, too.
I'll tell you how this is gonna play out:
>guy spends 3 months at the gym
>woman wet as a sponge
>decides to get fit, too
>woman loses 2 pounds
>begins thinking she can do better than him
a women didn't type that, a man didn't even
it sounds like shit AI actually
This is a gay man talking about his husband
it checks out
Fuck it, I think you're right.
>Love it when he's on Top
>do sports my entire life
>fit, but not muscular
>going good, regular sex
>injure self and need to stop sport
>try to find something else
>2y in I am pretty ripped
>gf practically milks me dry daily now
before my physical changes I was ALWAYS the one initiating sex. and if I got lucky she would be up for it.
now its the other way around most of the time. shes asking me to "cuddle" which ends up with us fucking pretty much every single time so its more like a code already.
she sometimes even goes to bad and then comes back after an hour to get fucked and then just leaves upstairs again.
its actually bizarre sometimes.
also her whole perspective on contraceptives changed. we normally only did it with condom. now shes asking me not to use them. almost feels likes shes become addicted to getting creamed.
OP is not a gay. can confirm.
Yes leg press is a perfectly fine replacement, just do Bulgarian split squats and/or lunges for training stabilization muscles and you are good to go
>Bulgarian split squats
I thought these were some BS meme exercise that women did at the gym until I tried it. The DOMS felt the next day was unbearable.
If you think BSSs are bad, try pistol squats. You'll curse God the next day from the DOMS.
I'd worry that I'm training my legs to handle so much, that when I use both of them, I overload my spine
Eh unless you go low on weight, leg press isn't great for your spine (especially if you round your lower back whatsoever)
Do bulgarian split squats for dat dere poise
>joined a gym 4 months ago
>goes 3 times a week
>wife thinks he's a greek god
sooo he's probably dyel but woman just have really low standards, right?
no one would see significant changes going to the gym 3 days a week for 4 months
People in general have low standards dude. They'll consider you "ripped" if you have the slightest amount of muscle on you because that puts you above at least 80% of the populace.
>t. Got compliments from girls in high school when I first started working out despite still being skinnyfat
>It's also made me really determined to get more in shape myself
it was semi believable until that
Nah, people will feel more determined to get into shape, just like in the past, when skinny boomers used to feel "determined" after watching Rocky.
But after going a couple of times, they suddenly realized they have no time to get into shape.
you're talking about men though, women do not have that drive
How is your spine too bad to do squats? Are you just making excuses because squatting is a difficult exercise to perform? You're not going to make it so dont even bother doing leg press of any training.
Injuries work in weird ways.
I fucked my wrists and now I cannot do bicep curls, but I can still do most other exercises (close grip BP is also impossible)
>I fucked my wrists and now I cannot do bicep curls
I know this exact feel. I just cope with hammer curls and EZ bar reverse curls.
>How is your spine too bad to do squats?
Your spine was not meant to hold up weights you dumb moron. Its only a matter of time before you wear it out and get back pain or a slip disc for your troubles.
Leg pressure is worse for your spine than squats. Do them 1 leg at a time to mitigate.
this is a tale as old as time
>"I don't like muscular guys, skinny is fine! UwU"
*gets ripped and lean*
>"holy fuck sexo 6 pack and biceps sexo"
Id personally do hacksquats over leg press any day of the week.
