Ladies, post pictures of clothes that you wear, your style, or clothes that you really want to wear.

Gentlemen, post pictures of clothes you like to see on a lady.

Wife carrying Anon here.

The /fit/ board here is a place you can come for genuine advice. Though year-long 150+ post threads don't have posts every day, they show the board generates constant, long term value for posters and lurkers. I and several other posters had 150+ post threads that logged months of workout progress. One of these logged a year in China, where I trained to lift my girlfriend for a wife-carrying competition. Pics were delivered of the lift, and it was an awesome story for all the posters that made this possible.

Let's get the sticky and another two progress threads that had been deleted back on the board. I really don't want to see this board die and its tripfriends scattered.

At the moment, I'm 82-84kg, at between 12-14%bf. Had an ingrown toenail removed, it got badly infected, and I haven't been able to get around as much as I'd have liked to. No Judo either, I missed my first competition; I should be better for a yellow belt grading.

Seeing progress across the board on SS (again). When I stall, I'm going to go straight on the intermediate programme in Practical Programming.

Squat 1RM: 120kg - as of last week. Seeing progress, but toe has stalled it.
DL 1RM: 140kg - aiming for 150kg within 8 days for a lifting meet.
Press 3RM: 45kg - looking for a 50kg 1RM
Bench 1RM: 65kg - doing dumbell bench for a month as a main lift.

Dips: 3x12- these have gotten so much stronger. Going to start weighting them.
Pull ups: 10 is my max. going for 15.
Chins: 3x8. Going to start weighting these. Gi pullups interesting.

Farmer's walks: 40kg dumbell for 70m. 2 turns.
Power snatch 5x3: 40kg

Minor issue. Been in a relationship for 2 plus years. Usual relationship shit, we argue, we kiss, we make up, rinse, repeat. Just as we were getting into this, I met a girl through work. She's a customer at my shop, and she never just buys summat the goes, we always have an at times quite flirty conversation.Now she seems to be somewhat of an upgrade to my current girlfriend, fun, active, thinner, ambitious, likes to have a drink or three. My current missus wont get a proper job, bitches like fuck if she has to get out of bed at a normal time, and is a bit clingy. Recently, she seems to be playing on my mind more than usual. My question is this, is this one of those times that the grass is greener, and I just want what I can't have, or could I be on to summat?

BS in kinesiology
MS in Exercise Physiology (top 3 school in USA)
2 years deep in PhD in Muscle Physiology
Doctoral fellow in Sports Med
CSCS
USAW
have worked with special forces, olympic athletes, and NFL.

NONE ARE LUCRATIVE. if you REALLY think this is neat, do it for that alone. to believe this is a monied field is false. Go into medicine if you want $. if you want "the jack", go to the gym after work. I can tell you what. after 10 years, you are going to get tired of teaching people for the 10,000th time how to squat, bench, Oly, and deadlift.

Well personally I look at working out as a sort of masochism. I mean there's no practical purpose to becoming stronger in today's society, especially when I'm going into a computer based field. I work out for the same reason that angst ridden teens cut themselves: When I'm lifting weights I'm not thinking about anything else. When I'm at the gym I get to take a break from worrying because otherwise I might drop a large amount of weight on my chest. I don't really get the same thing when I'm running which is just another reason that cardio is harder to make myself do than weight training. I'd say I'm pretty driven in working out, but I have no goals which is what usually drives people. The thing is that eventually these people reach a goal or plateau on the way to it and it demotivates them so I don't know that that's the best motivation to use.

Is that what you meant? I hope I didn't misunderstand the idea behind your thread.

I was thinking more along the lines of advice on getting into ''flow states'' (see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xvpuj6DRS4).

Maybe we can try and work towards a methodology for getting into flow states. When I can unreliably do it I can do better than when I do self hypnosis things (does barely nothing - probably placebo), but less than any good pre-workout stimulants.

Here's the useful, actionable information from the Wikipedia page - which is the best source I can find for bias mitigation while retaining accessibility:

''"A person does not need to be told to pay attention to a stimulus that captures attention quickly and effortlessly.[6] In many cases, explicitly directing one’s own or another’s attention is necessary due to the presence of another stimulus that more easily captures attention. In the case of flow, however, an action that would normally grab one’s attention is ignored, and many automatic processes are either suppressed (such as stimulus-driven attention changes) or ignored (such as discomfort.)

On the other hand, situations in which autonomy is encroached upon (for example, if the individual must always control his/her actions to abide by rules imposed by the task) are thought to inhibit flow.[7] This implies that another requirement of flow is to be free from constraints that force controlled processes to be used. Additionally, several areas of research indicate that during a state of flow an otherwise-controlled process becomes automatic allowing it to behave dominant over all other automatic processes.''
>> No. 608
that picture is legit
>> No. 651
So successful people surround themselves with flow only.
But I dont understand how to generate flow.
is it something you are instinctively good at and you support it with music and sports, both which creates flow?
How to find somethin in life, which is "you" giving you flow? If I understand it correctly, there is no way arround this ultimate goal. This is all about?
Anyways. Dont get all this.
>> No. 653
flow is a term meaning living in the present, ymmv. lots of different people describe what being "in the flow" similarly. athletes, fighter pilots, even cashiers will experience flow. it's nothing more than being 100% committed to the task at hand. think to yourself "there's nothing in the world I'm doing RIGHT NOW than this". the grateful dead started out in the back of this guy Neill's bus, and Weir says that Neill was always "in the flow". He would have this amazing ability to always seem like he was in the right place at the right time, living each moment like it was an enormous event.

I recently saw a business shirt made of the material used for suits, and a suit made of shirt material. I'm not sure though. Maybe I'm just a creative genius and mind tricked me - I was walking at a fast pace past the shop and I can't be fucked going all the way back. Does anyone know what this is cool and where to get less pricey versions of it online?
>> No. 607
Your post is kind of pointless, as suits and shirts could be made of basically anything.

By "the material used for suits" you could be talking about wool, linen, twill cotton, polyester, silk, flannel, etc etc etc... Shirts can also be made of any of these materials.

What you are seeing and responding to may just be the weight and texture of the fabric. ie, maybe you saw a linen suit with a flannel or twill cotton shirt under it.

As for where to buy a suit online: don't. Don't buy a suit online. The fit is too important. Get your measurements taken and get a suit tailored to fit properly. It will save you a lot of hassle. And if you can at all afford it, don't buy a cheap suit. I'm not saying you need to drop $5000 for something bespoke on Savile Row. But you shouldn't be scrimping with a suit. Spend at the upper limit of what you can afford because you will look noticeably better and save money in the long run.
>> No. 610
>>607

Basically what he said. I just want to add that as a general rule it's easier to take material away from a suit than to add material to it. Obviously I'm not saying get one three sizes too big, but if you have to choose between adding an inch and taking away an inch, always go for the bigger one. Tailoring a suit is relatively cheap, getting measured up can be free depending on where you are and how well you can convince a tailor that you will come back to him if he measures you up for free.

I like socks. This thread is for bold socks.

- links to brands and online stores
- pictures - especially of colourful socks within the context of a whole outfit, though cool socks on their own are also encouraged
- inspiration for sock/shoe/pant pairings
- thoughts on what works and what doesn't as far as colours & patterns. tasteful or tacky? how much is too much?
- general thoughts on the use of a bold pair of socks to add a bit of spice to an outfit. How do you feel about bold socks in everyday wear? What about adding some zazz to often dull business casual officewear? What about with a casual suit? A formal suit? Etc.

I'll tell you one thing, I get a hell of a lot of compliments whenever I wear quirky socks. Girls seem to love it. Guys will sometimes try to put me down about it, usually with backhanded compliments, but sometimes by outright accusing me of being a fag or wearing "girl socks" though I just take insults from insecure guys as a sign that I'm doing something right, and it's easy enough to brush off.

For the last couple years, I would buy the loudest, silliest socks I could find - having some goofy colourful pattern, such as bright clashing stripes, big polka dots, geometric shapes, animal print etc. peeking out between my pant cuff and shoes was what I was after. But lately, as my old socks have been wearing out, I've been seeking a more balanced approach with bolder colours and patterns than you usually see, but still a little more understated than I was wearing before: red or blue paisleys, knit patterns, camo print, Aztec or "tribal" patterns, heathered wool... Something bold but still tasteful, rather than the deliberately tasteless looks I was going for before.

I'm really liking these Norse Projects Bjarki Fairisle knits, basically exactly what I'm looking for right now.

How do you decide upon goals? I go by stereotypes but I've started to feel this is a little...pathetic. Don't get me wrong, I still want to look and be cool and I know my livelihood (work, for instance) depends upon it but still...
>> No. 576
This is kind of intangible advice, but... intuition. I go with what feels right at a given time. That's not to say I'm fickle or don't plan ahead, but being aware of my desires in the moment, thinking about how things feel to me, and trusting my gut feelings goes a long way. Don't go by stereotypes or external expectations, narratives, or structures. Do you. Don't worry about looking or being cool, focus on looking and feeling a way that feels right for you.

Practice reflection. Keep a journal. Find a counselor. Ask yourself what you want and write and think on it.

This sounds a little more like a /docta/ thread, but since this is /fitfa/, I'll talk a bit in fitness and fashion terms:
Fitness: don't worry about what body type or build *chan fitness boards tell you is the best or girls like the most or whatever the fuck. Take a realistic look at yourself, think about how you will feel most comfortable in your body, the look that will make you feel really proud of yourself and your accomplishment and discipline. Work out. Try different things. Lift, do yoga, run, bike, swim... find what leaves you feeling really good and what feels like the most fun (or the most enjoyably unfun, if that's what you're looking for) and do more of that. Maybe you want to be super jacked, maybe you want to be lanky and flexible, maybe you just want to look like a pretty normal but very fit regular guy. Think about it.

Fashion: again, ignore what imageboards say as far as specifically how you should dress. Accept advice, sure; seek feedback, sure; look for tips and inspiration. But take everything with a grain of salt and at the end of the day, do you. Do what feels comfortable for you. Think about what you value. For me, I've been finding more and more that I value minimalism and high quality. I don't want to buy cheap made-in-china shit, and I don't want heaps of clothes spilling out. I want a few versatile key pieces, nothing too flashy, just a handful of items that I can mix and match. I've started to realize that I don't really want to make a big statement with my clothes, I like to play it low-key. You may be different. You may enjoy flashiness. You may want a more extensive wardrobe. That's cool.

Think about what you want, cultivate habits of self-reflection, learn what it is you value, and build your goals around that. And above all, be willing to change. Your goals should not (and probably cannot) be set in absolute stone. As you grow and change, so will your needs and desires. Be willing to let them morph and take on new shapes. Be willing to go through phases. Be willing to grow, shift, and re-evaluate.
>> No. 577
One more point about the fashion stuff: take the necessities of your life into account as well. What does your job require, wardrobe-wise? What about dates? Do you like to dress up for dates or do you prefer to keep it casual? Do you go to formal events often?

These necessities can shape your goals.

a) Masturbation doesn't change your skin colour, son.

I've been in the hospital for a while and during that I lost about 20 pounds. I'm 19 years old and that was enough for me to look visibly different. I went from around 135lb to 118lb. For the last few weeks I've been trying to bulk up in college but now since it's out I lost a free gym and my meal ticket.

Now I'm at home and have little money to spend on things like loads of food, supplements or equipment. I don't want to be buff or anything. I just don't want to look like a sickly, lanky twig. So is there a relatively quick and cheap way for me to gain weight?

yeah dude, ramen noodles.
But you gotta put on muscle, get eggs and I think husked sunflower seeds and the like are fairly cheap, and get a low level adjustable dumbell set. Mine is up to 40# if I put all the weight on one, and that's about as much as I curl. Also, one of those pull-up bars is good too, but you could use a tree branch or something. Also food-wise, chicken is a cheaper meat than beef/pork, ground is cheaper than steaks/cuts, learn to cook and have protein snacks

Eggs are a cheap, convenient source of protein and fat. Buy a dozen and hardboil six at a time, eat them over 3 days. Buying rice and black/white/kidney beans in bulk is also a very cheap way to get some protein in your diet. It's a versatile dish, as there are many ways your could add flavour (soy sauce, curry, adding a half-cup of chicken or beef, adding stir-fried veggies, adding nuts. Teriyaki is pretty sugary but you could add some of that every so often if you like it). The bulk aisle is your friend in other ways as well: get nuts, seeds, etc. Keep your eye out for things that are on sale in the bulk aisle and the meat aisle and clip coupons if you want.

Eat a protein rich breakfast every day, get 8 hours of sleep, don't stay up late, do push-ups, crunches, squats, lunges, and any other basic bodyweight exercises you can think of every other day. As the above poster said, go find a tree and do pull-ups. For added weight during these exercises, look for second hand freeweights or fill a backpack with books, cinch it up close to your back, and do your push-ups, squats, etc.

Is it possible to burn fat through just strength training (e.g. press-ups, squats, etc), or is it necessary to do cardio?

I'm not fat, but I wouldn't call myself thin or scrawny either. I'm about 5'11" in terms of height and weigh around 145lbs. I think my current body type is what people refer to as "skinnyfat", though with perhaps a bit more muscle.

It's just that I find it really hard to motivate myself to go outside for a run somewhere, especially when it's winter like it is now, and I've been almost completely inactive for months because of it. I find it much easier to motivate myself to do press-ups, squats, knee tucks and things of that nature, since I can just do them in the comfort (and warmth) of my own home.

I have a bit of fat left that I'd like to lose, but I'm wondering if I can accomplish that without doing cardio, while simultaneously building muscle mass. I'm not in any rush, so I don't mind if the progress is slow, I'm just wondering if it's even possible.

take this one guys opinion, ymmv, my 2 cents, for what it's worth, etc.

what you are proposing is difficult to achieve. firstly, I assume we are talking about the bellyfat here. losing that last bit of bodyfat around the midsection is the hardest part of them all. I'm not talking about you, but fattys in general, have no idea that losing the first 20-30, whatever pounds; is rip shit easy compared to the last bit of roll on the gut. It takes time and dedication. So much so, that it can be frustrating as hell. For myself, I recall a lot of nightly cursing around this. Secondly you say "while simultaneously building muscle mass" which imo is contrary to cutting. What generally happens is more like building definition than gaining mass.

My suggestions would be deep calorie deficit, nearly zero carbs, (watch out for hemorrhoids, get lots of water and high fiber fruits like apples, and such). I dont know shit about it, but check out The Zone diet. That kind of dedication to diets a mutherfucker though man. And indoor cardio/calisthenics like, do lots of jumping jacks, jumping rope, running in place, fast pace push ups and sit ups, that kind of stuff. Also maybe some aerobics dvds, they're not just for grandmas, some of those things'll kick your ass. Speaking of, you might be perfect for p90x or Insanity. Do these along with whatever program youre currently doing or incorporate them into what your doing now

I hope any of that helps and good luck mate. Stay dedicated and eventually you'll get there.

I'm not going to bother reading through this whole thing, but I will give it to you simply.
>burn fat through weight training
Yes. But it doesn't make a huge difference
>without cardio
Yes. But you have to eat exactly how much your calories need and no more. And based on my experience- it won't look as good if you don't do cardio
>> No. 566
you definitely can. But generally people subdivide their goals into bulking and cutting, building up a good base of muscle than honing away the fat. To do this you have to understand how much you need to eat to sustain your body weight, how much protein you need to gain muscle, and how much protein you need to sustain that muscle.

Figures I've seen are ~1.5g per kg of body mass per day for bulking and ~1g per kg per day for maintenance. Try to keep protein consumption fairly consistent if you are bulking, 2hr gaps between small meals is ideal
