Guys, you've convinced me that dumbbells aren't enough and that I should get my ass into barbell lifting, SS and all.
Now, a gym membership in the nearest gym would cost around 2000 dollars for a year (in American units), so I figure I'm better off buying the damn equipment myself for a fraction of that price and have all I need at home. I reckon it would cost less than 2000 units.
I've seen benches at 70 euros; is it possible to have quality at such a price?
What do I really need?
Does it matter what barbell I get as long as it's...

I got two floors in my apartment and intend to lift upstairs, so I doubt they'd hear much of anything.
You wouldn't laugh because I don't even have any. I've literally never lifted a BB in my entire life. Been training with DB and some full body routine for over 7 months now; I feel ready to tackle a BB (without weight, at least).
I recently joined the gym, my goal is to lose weight. I'm a big guy so I've got pretty far to go. About 35kgs/77lbs.
My first time at the gym I was really nervous but pushed on. But I noticed some random guy and his friend staring at me. It was really uncomfortable sort of staring. Whilst I was on the treadmill and rowing they both stared at my belly and my large size. Yeah I get it. I'm fat - that's why I'm at the fucking gym.
But it seems we have a similar schedule he or his friend or both are always there and always staring. It's totally killing my motivation and just making feel really fucking conscious and aware of my weight instead of my workout. Now I get anxious before going in for a workout and hate going to the gym. I've stopped going regularly.
So does benchpress.
When I squat, my lumbar region hurts like ass.
When I bench, the part near my shoulderblades kills me.
Any idea why? Max DL is 90kg.
how many fruits should i eat per day? because i eat 4-6 and im not sure if its good

Would /fit/ reccomended casein over whey?
Would /fit/ recommend casein over whey?
Actually Im curious too about the pros and cons of both. Most people I know drink whey isolate but I know some uber jacked guys who drink a gallon of milk a day.
Can we stop with the green man bullshit? This is getting ridiculous.

What are the best sources of protein?
I mostly mean other than in meat, I'm not a vegetarian but I don't like eating massive quantities of meat, I can find it bit unappetising
are mushrooms any good for protein?
How do you get an explosive chest?
I don't flat bench, I incline because it feels better. I'm always slow pushing the bar off my chest. the top part of the rep is easy, but the bottom half near the chest beats the piss out of me
I can only go fast if i put babby weight on
Is Rob Riches natty?
When posed with the question if someone is natty ask yourself two questions.
1) Are they exceptionally lean?
2) Do they have exceptional mass?
If you answered yes to both these questions, they most likely are not natty.

How can i ignore my sadness to go to the gym?
Im a guy who been lifting for years, but this weekend my gf broke with me, how do you guys cope with bad feelings and motivate yourself to go to the gym, even when feeling like shit?
You know you could just let today slide, maybe tomorrow and the even the rest of the week of you need it. I mean the holidays are coming up so why not just reboot and start again after the new year. I mean it's only your health and physical well being, being emotional and not forged steel will definitely lead you to where you want to be. Fuck her, you're better off being with someone who wants to be with you. Why let her deystroy you. You're free now, but not free to be a sad sack. Just go dog, don't even trip.
