How long did it take you to realise that full body workouts are completely useless for bodybuilding and PPL splits are infinitely better?

selfish men get pussy
the world may deny it but it's true

my younger brother has always been self-obsessed, having other clean up after him, never helping out with anything voluntarily, never doing anything he didn't want to do
now he's focussing purely on his career and he's doing well, he's going to graduate from uni soon with a promising career and a hot gf
meanwhile, I've always tried to be a good kid, kept my room clean, did the dishes, helped my parents with whatever
and I'm a kissless virgin at 29 who's life is going absolutely nowhere

I am not resentful though, I've just come to accept this thing for what it is
women love the self-obsessed, egotistical man, the patrick bateman type, so long as they are successful in life
kind men are soft men and soft men are not attractive

Alright settle this.

Let's say u are guy on the left. You've been with your 6/10 wholesome girlfriend for 3 years. You are happy that lifting, positive thinking, and never giving up gave you the life you've always wanted.

One day, out of nowhere, the guy on the right moves into the apartment next door. He needs some help moving in, so introduces himself to you and your girlfriend.

Be honest, how long until pretty boy lean Chad is fucking your girl in ways she'd never let you while you grind 8 hours a day at your slavemax job. Do you really think you could outlift genetics?

The truth is if the woman was a whore from the start she'd cheat on you, but she would be doing you a favor by letting you know that only 3 years into the relationship and saving you from being divorce raped. If she's a genuinely good girl she might find the guy on the right nice to look at but she wouldn't screw you over just to fuck him. Real life isnt an incel NTR fantasy.

Posts like this are never helpful because they convince the average Joe that if you're muscular and lean you're "looksmaxxed", this being logged at that stage means all your effort was worthless. The truth is the guy on the left is miles away from being truly looksmaxxed.

First off, the lighting and color balance of the left photo is way off. Right has balanced lighting which is pleasant on the face, and high color temperature which makes the skin look better. Fix that and the apparent difference in attractiveness between the two guys is cut in half

The main problems with the guy on the left are his ears, big nose, and big forehead. If you look close you'll notice he has fairly good features, a good jaw, and isn't doing himself any favors with his facial expression. A longer hairstyle to cover his ears and a medium beard to make his chin longer, along with some work on his eyebrows could make him easily as handsome as the guy on the right to the female gaze.

So gtfo with your demoralization if you think it's actually useful. Everyone has potential. There's always hope. We're all gonna make it.

However if the guy on the left is less than 5'9" he should end it immediately

Beginner to the gym, are there any exercises that I should remove or add to my upper-body workouts? I'm just trying to get fit and build some muscle while also losing fat. Not trying to become a unit just yet.

This is what I've had some people tell me, but I'm not sure which ones to cut out and which ones I stand to gain the most benefits from and work out the most muscle groups with.
With legs I have just 5 exercises and I can call it a day. But for my upper body it seems like there's so much I have to do.

Best Excercises to grow chest? Are incline and flat bench enough or should I also do cable and dumbell?

>>68461742
Bench works fine, chest is one of the easiest muscles to grow.

it can be the hardest or easiest depending on your insertions because that determines how much much it's going be recruited during pressing movements. It's highly possible your insertions are narrow enough they're only recruited significantly at the end of the bench press range of motion. Men with narrow insertions will pretty much only be able to grow their chest isolations and rotating movements (god rest their shoulders).

So if you have a poor chest to begin with or have sub par chest development after a year of lifting switch to a DB incline bench because it has more chest recruitment because there's a bigger adduction component and it's at an angle that optimizes chest recruitment while also being a solid pressing compound that's not just an accessory.

I've been incorporating rucking into my routine, doing it with approximately 25 pounds about once a week, usually just walking and sometimes running. For 3-4 days after my knees feel warm probably like inflammation, they don't hurt at all but they do feel worked. I kinda feel like I'm getting stronger, but not quite the same way I feel stronger after weightlifting. I'm getting a little nervous that if I keep this up I'm going to fuck up my joints like how veterans complain about. Is this something I can keep doing and get stronger with, or are your joints not similarly trainable?

tl;dr: can you strengthen joints or only fuck them up?

>>68460044
If you want to safe guard your joints especially knees and ankles, do calf raises and bird dogs.
>>
>>68460369
The solution is ruck-swimming. All the gains none of the pains. Strap on your weighted vest and take a refreshing swim, OP
>>
>>68460080
You can strengthen joints and tendons, just not as easily, and with more risk of permanent injury if you don't recover/rest.

you are half joking but a lot of athletes do that kind of underwater training where they hold a weights and walk along the bottom of a pool and thats supposed to be really good advanced form of cardio, basically like dumbbell farms walk but underwater, i think marines and other special forces also train like that

Found your problem
Take a month or two off drinking, you can use benzos to wean yourself off but make sure you go at least 2 weeks with no drugs at all. What you're experiencing is likely withdrawal, not anxiety
If that doesn't work get CBT. DO NOT go on SSRIs, maybe try ketamine even
