I was born in an upper middle class household in a non anglo country, went to a private school and then went to a target university to study engineering.
Years ago I was called to be an election monitor with 4 other people, 3 of them women of lower/middle class. Needless to say, people there saw me as a GOD due to my socioeconomic status, and the women would not stop hitting on me even thouh they had bfs!
I think instead of focusing on lifting you should work on your career and network with people of a better social class and learntheir accent, mannerisms, etc. I'm not saying don't lift, I'm just saying it shouldn't be your priority.
You're thinking like a woman. The best way to gain socioeconomic status is through lifting.
and how does that work?
If you're strong enough, then you'll be able to know what to do.
You know who’s jacked? Manual laborers.
manual laborers are low status though
I've been on my share of jobsites, and the average physique is on the builtfat continuum because the average tradie is an alcoholic with a garbage diet.
if you only lift for the approval of others, sure
i lift to be strong as fuck
interesting wall of cope that i didnt read
now post webm of jef bezos getting cucked in public (his wife is eyethroating men of lower socioeconocim status that hit on her openly)
I want to see the webm of all those (women) nurses showing their near-zero bank account balances. It's amazing the lack of basic willpower people have to be anything but broke.
uh sure thing buddy
which is why women flock to morons and lowlife degenerates because they are known to be so rich and high society right ?
maybe in your 4chan cuck fantasies
this is IST not IST petit bourgeoisie larper
Why do you larp as anything other than a poor peasant? Does your family own a means of production, as in they’re shareholders? If not then you’re a peasant
lol @ the jealousy
I had the same upbringing and engineering schooling, yet I am still a poor peasant compared to the shareholders of the firm I work for. They earn $1k per product sold, I earn 0.001 that.
I never said I was rich or anything like that
learn to read
Then stop saying shit like "lower/upper middle class" and deluding yourself into thinking others saw you as a god you poor little ape
it objetively happened
Jealousy? Bro I’m giving you advice spastic. Enjoy your pre owned Diesel S-class.
>I'm not saying don't lift, I'm just saying it shouldn't be your priority.
There's definitely an optimal stopping point for these things, beyond which additional hourly investments offer such diminished marginal returns you're better off addressing other areas of life.
But relative to most of the world that's still a huge devotion. Eating right most of the time, sleeping well, taking care of yourself should happen kind of regardless of lifting. Lifting-wise you probably should, you can probably sneak by with 15 efficient minutes once you're in shape with 30-60 minutes of cardio most days. You'd kind of do the cardio regardless for life gains and sleep gains.
But yeah there's definitely a stopping point with this. Trying to be an IFBB pro is pretty dumb. Making it look like you have the biggest fucking pump ever and are super super jacked is kind of dumb. Being very solidly built and lean though is a pretty good point to be at.
>entry-level engineers only make 80k AUD
What watches does your dad own? What cars do your parents drive?
If you were really upper middle class you would have some fucking humility because you are nothing but a servant to the ultra wealthy. you will bleed your family dry if you start slumming It up
Your wife rides Big Broke Cocks
I think it depends on your occupation. If you're a door to door salesman it's a way better investment to groom yourself and look your best because attraction, charisma, and social skills are what you will rely on in those fields. But if you're a data analyst it doesn't really matter as much. You should still be IST, I truly believe everything you do to improve your appearance just makes your life easier so you'd be retarded not to
This thread is stupid, gay, and pointless.
But it made me think of something. Around here, to be a member of the liberal elite you need to run 5ks and eat organic. I don't know that any of them lift and I get the feeling that showing up with big muscles would be like driving up in a lifted Dodge Ram and a MAGA hat. It's just a different class signifier that goes against their values (socially progressive, non traditional masculinity, old anglo self denial). Does anyone know what I mean?
because you can be rich and buff, retard
I just wanna lift heavy things over my head
because it's fun
posting on IST is low socioeconomic behavior
When you look good, people just give you things because you have high socioeconomic status
