If you're feeling beat up and frequently still sore into each successive workout and it never improves, then you're overdoing it. You'll feel it in your joints and connective tissues, too. Really a week of deload is all you should need. Or do a week of full rest, then start light the next week, then pick up where you left off the week after that. Up to you.

My bench grip is insanely wide and I'm trying to narrow it, but it's now way harder to bench drastically lower weight. Is this normal and I just have to get used to it?

I'm 6' and use a narrower grip than that but it's personal preference and what works best for the individual. Also, I disagree that a wider grip is easier. Snatch grip BP is extremely difficult.

I'm 5'8", 195lbs and I bench kinda like this guy >>64041917 but another finger width and a half or so inward.
I used to have the same problem as you, OP, and I switched to this narrow grip for everything but maxing out and I can now bench nearly as much wide as I can narrow.
Recently tested bench max with narrow grip is 335lbs paused, and 350lbs wide touch and go. Couldn't hit 350lbs with a narrow grip even for touch and go.

I've had a very small abdominal hernia for about 2-3 years. It only hurts when my dumbass keeps touching it to see if it's getting worse or not, but 99% of the time I forget it's even there. I'm just getting into weightlifting, but I'm afraid this might hold me back. I also heard that the area is weaker after surgery, and that lifting weights or any strenuous activity should be avoided.

Pic somewhat related, except you can't see mine and can barely feel it.

How do I get over her? I fell in love with her instantly. She's my future wife I can see it. It's just ruined by some fuckboi boyfriend. I want her and no one else. How do I get her?

A brigand can capture a city, but only a king can hold it. I don't expect some kind of magical bond that happens where she'll change her nature. I go into it knowing that and knowing I will have to fend off other suitors.

What is /fit/'s stance on artificial sweeteners like sucralose, ace k, aspartame, etc
I keep reading about how they'll fuck up your gut biome(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4661066/)
And sucralose already tastes like ass, to me at least
Do any of you use sugar alcohols like xylitol or erythritol? aside from potentially making you shit yourself they seem like a good option

You basically cant avoid them since they're in tons of protein powders/bars. I wouldnt worry so long as you consume them in moderation. Also I got used to eating erythritol and dont shit like I used to, take that as you will. As for the research you linked see pic rel.

>>64041890
I do, 6 days a week. But I'm 5'6.
People act like lifting is the cure, it isn't. Height isn't EVERYTHING sure, but it's a dealbreaker.
I've had a girl (who was 2-3 inches shorter than me) tell me
"Anon, you'd be my dream guy if your weren't 5'6" she told me that when I asked her out. She rejected me.

TDEE calc are really frustrating as the "activity level" section is always vague and unhelpful.

I'm 30, male, 6 foot 1 inch, 180 lb (81kg)
I lift 3 days a week. I work on my feet moving nonstop for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

What would you say my TDEE is?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>>64042667
So how do I calculate that? Like I said, the preset activity levels on TDEE calcs are really dumb.

I'm guessing I need about 3200 to bulk. I'm going to start with that and monitor my weight weekly.

>>64042831
calorie counting apps usually have an option to set your activity level, like for example "light activity" (1-3 days a week)

>>64042877
Yeh that's what I mean, the settings are vague and ambiguous.
