Hey brahs! Been liftin 2 years and just broke a new PR!
My lifting mate is more experienced and says I'm still DYEL mode. :-(
What do you guys think of my development so far?
I've been using keto to cut to great success.
To address the typical comments that people say about keto:
Yes, I know calories in vs calories out is the key factor in weight loss
I'm still tracking calories and staying in a deficit
Yes, I know low carb diets result in losing water weight
I can tell the difference between water weight and fat. I've lost fat, not just water.
The main reason I like it is satiety. I can eat a big ass plate of pasta or rice and feel hungry again in 2 hours. But, if I eat a steak with some greens I feel...

I started getting heart palpitations and feeling really gross/heavy/weird after eating high fat meals after a few months. My lifts stagnated, didn't really change much. And I was sweating a lot.
What foods are u eating? whats your meal plan like
Here's what I ate today, it's pretty typical of what I usually eat:
Breakfast: scrambled eggs, spinach, frozen berries
Lunch: salad with vinaigrette (oil+vinegar), chicken thighs, hard boiled egg
Dinner: Steak, collard greens
I pretty never eat snacks since I've started keto.

Serious questions, why were Bruce Lee's lower lats so wide? I know some of it is an optical illusion because of the high pants but even so it seems like I see a lot of guys with big thick lats, but they don't (visibly) extend nearly as far down as Bruce's did. Genetics? His routine? Also, tips for wide lower lats if you have them.
What do you guys do to reward yourself after a productive day?
Whats this lift called?
QTTDTOT - Questions that don't deserve their own thread (thread)
What's the difference between a pull up and a chin up? Is it just the grip difference? (chin-up overhand, pull up underhand)?
then why are neutral grip pull ups only pull ups? is there more to this movement than just supination?
I'm new to lifting, joined an Olympic weightlifting gym - want to learn the sport
Its been like a month and i still haven't perfected the squat form, needs some tweaking and i think itll be good. Im 6 2 and have gotten more flexible and shit in this time
Is this normal or am i just autistic? I'm not the best at learning new stuff. How long did it take you to learn proper form?
Is this buttwink?
Recently fucked up my back through rounding it while squatting/DLing
why lift? Girls don't even care about it
I don't get why anyone would spend 4hours a day in the gym trying to grow bigger muscles and eating like a glutton
Who else rows here for their cardio?
On the twelfth day of Liftmas my true love gave to me
Twelve dumbbells a-pumping,
Eleven inclined benches,
Ten skipping ropes,
Nine giant tires,
Eight glasses of milk,
Seven balance trainers,
Six straps a-lifting,
Five iron rings,
Three row attachments,
Two Indian clubs
And a squat rack and a weight tree.
What the fuck do I do /fit/?
I made Alan thrall's chanko nabe bulking stew today. Its really fucking good. I recommend it to all of you. Cost me 25 dollars because I had to buy a few sauces and a bag of miso, next time it would be more like 15.

Tfw my hero poutine is the first post in my thread
Here's the recipe because OP is a fag:
1-2 lbs (depending on how much meat you want in your soup) Ground Beef, Chicken, Pork, and/or Turkey
1/2 gal of Stock: Beef, Chicken, Fish, or Vegetable
Eggs (about 2 eggs per pound of ground beef)
1 cup chopped Scallions (green onions)
4-6 large whole carrots
2 cups of sliced Mushrooms
Mirin (rice wine vinegar)
(If you don’t have access to Mirin and Miso Paste you can find a Chinese/Japanese style sauce that will do just fine)
Step 1: Cook rice.
Step 2: In a large pot, heat up the Stock, ½ cup Soy Sauce, ½ cup Chinese/Japanese style sauce.
Step 3: Chop all of the vegetables. The carrots, mushrooms, cabbage, and Bok Choy should be roughly chopped. Big chunks are good. Mince the onions, garlic, ginger, and scallions (green onions). Keep the carrots and mushrooms together; the cabbage and Bok Choy together; the onions, garlic, and ginger together.
Step 4: Once the stock comes to a rolling boil add the carrots and mushrooms.
Step 5: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground meat, eggs, onions, green onion, garlic, ginger, ½ cup of Soy Sauce, and some of the Chinese/Japanese style sauce. Mix together.
Step 6: Using a silverware spoon, scoop and shape small meatballs out of the meat mixture. Drop the meatballs one by one into the stock. Once the meat mixture is gone, let them cook for about 12 minutes (depending on how hot the stock is and how many meatballs you made.)
Step 7: Once the meatballs are cooked, add the chopped WASHED Bok Choy and Cabbage. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Step 8: Serve in a large bowl with a side of steamed white rice. Enjoy!
Gather round /fit/ it's time to hear about Fatland.
>what's fatland OP?
Fatland is a book series by a fat woman named Frannie Zellman about a fictional country governed on Fat Acceptance and Health at Every Size principles. Here's a quick and dirty rundown of the plot
>In 2040 diet companies lobby for draconian diet laws
>fatties are sent to weight loss camps
>fatties form their own country and secede from the U.S.

Fatland apparently has a very low rate of diabetes and heart disease because their scientists discovered they were really caused by fat shaming!
In Fatland they have toilets big enough for all sizes!
Fatland scientists also discovered that diets actually cause weight gain! You see 400lb people are really that fat because diets caused their metabolisms to slow down!
How bad is beer 4x a week while trying to (clean) bulk?
How much of a difference does it make to wear actual lifting shoes? Is it only worth it once you reach a certain level?
I've been lifting for almost a year now so I'm not really advanced but I'm also past beginner-mode. Are shoes like this worth it for someone who isn't doing huge weight yet? How do they help with lifting?
Also I think they look really cool compared to running shoes and basketball shoes.
It depends on what you're comparing it to.
I started lifting in running shoes that had terrible balance for lifting. My feet were always super wobbly when I was squatting or deadlifting. Switching to lifting shoes made a huge difference.
But in hindsight I probably could have just gone barefoot and gotten similar results.
So I guess my takeaway is that they can help if you're using something shittier, but they're not required.
I've been using running shoes the whole time (Nike Free 4.0s) and my feet are definitely a bit wobbly and get sore from deadlifts and squats. I was thinking a more solid and stable shoes would help fix that. Or going barefoot.
