/fitness knowledge/What have you guys picked up recently?>vegetable/seed oils are literal poison, they lead to heart disease>high saturated fat is not bad for you, any study that says it is is most likely a self-reported questionnaire>smoking is the worst thing you can do, and quitting cold turkey unassisted is terrible. Quit using Carr's Easyway>fiber is incredibly important for your gut microbiome, so make sure you eat meat with fibrous vegetables on the side>meditation (mindfulness) is incredibly good for you>sleep needs to be consistent, you should go to bed a few hours after sunset (different depending where you live, but generally 10pm)Will comment more as I think of them

online dating is a waste of time because no one wants to meet a stranger during a pandemic and it’s better and more realistic to focus on the girls you have already met in person
>>56237520Once you find a girl you realize how much time you wasted putting energy into worrying about women and wish you'd spent that time improving and organizing your life
>>56237587true. but it's hard to fight off those desires during these socially distant trying times. the lesson that i learned was that the only girl comfortable with going on dates and coming over to my place is the one that i didn't meet online
>>56237520>Talk shit again and I'll show you what slaps different
Any other Aussies here? How have you been doing throughout lockdown? Gyms open yet? I'm in the NT so gyms have been open a month and a half already
>>56237483why is quitting cold turkey bad? I'm not reading a 100 page book about smoking
>>56237483some things are wrong here.
>>56238096Because you will go your whole life craving nicotine, and won't ever truly be free from it. You might not want to read it because you are lazy, but the truth probably is you are scared of quitting. Just read the book, worst case scenario you don't stop smoking but you've gained some knowledge.
>>56238184What is wrong?
>>56238324not true. I couldn't imagine life without cigs when I first quit. After about 3 weeks i stopped feeling like shit and after a few months I stopped craving them entirely. You're probably dealing with a lot of stress in other parts of your life if you're having that much trouble
Can any loremasters let me know if I'm wasting my time with 10lbs dumbbells? I'm pretty poor and I got them for free, I don't have anything else to work out with. I'm actually not just poor I'm dead broke, so is it worth it to lift these? Any specific technics? I usually just curl them while watching something, pump them in the air, swish them in from an extended reach and to my chest.But is it going to do anything or should I just try and beg for something heavier? 20lbs? 40lbs? I'm not very strong...
>>56237897Living in Adelaide, barely noticed anything different. Homegym master race
>vegetable/seed oils are literal poison, they lead to heart diseaseQuick rundown on this? Does it include olive oil?
>>56239610Worthless. You are far better of doing body weight workouts. If you can afford buying a pair of gymnastic rings then you are set for life. For nutrition: rice, beans, oats. These are cheap kcal and protein sources. Good luck.
>>56240029>>56239610this, you can easily get jacked just with rings, maybe some resistance bands, and proper nutrition
>>56239684Extra virgin olive oil is good for you.Please watch https://youtu.be/5S6-v37nOtY>>56239654>>56239974I wish I had a home gym. I'm moving from Darwin to Canberra soon, so hopefully will be able to set up a home gym when I get moved in.>>56239610Look up some dumbbell exercises and do as many as you can. I'd reccomend high reps since it's a very low weight. Other than that, do body weight exercises (pull ups, push ups, etc). Something is always better than nothing. Goodluck anon I believe in you
>>56240058>Extra virgin olive oil is good for you.>Please watch https://youtu.be/5S6-v37nOtYGot more links? Specifically about seed oils and mass produced meat etc causing inflammation.
>>56240192https://www.youtube.com/channel/UComIr_SYmKrR6PbX2AezIJgIs a good resource, he looks at HDL, LDL and triglycerides, and the effect that they really have on you.https://youtu.be/NVNdpCZWWZEhttps://youtu.be/rui6NC4jnDk
>>56237860What a depressing image. Surely we can do better than simply beating reality into shape.
>>56238096Just supplement iodine instead
what is the vein above my dick below my navel what is this called
>>56238324not true tho
>>56237860Based and misogyny pilled
>>56237520What if i don't know any girl in person except my mother and my cousins?
>>56237483I quit cold turkey after 3 years, I also smoked a few years before that. I did about a pack/pack and a half a day depends. It literally is all in the head, once I smoked so much that I felt how disgusting it was I just threw them in the trash.
>>56239610I'm also broke.Be creative. Need a barbell? Just feel two buckets with water, grab an iron bar somewhere and you have a fucking barbell. Calculate the weight based on the volume of the bucket and how much a liter of water or whatever you out in the bucket weights. With multiple buckets you can have all the weight you want as a beginner. To curl, you can do this with a bucket of water :https://youtube.com/watch?v=pzmcOArNxKUAlso, you don't necessarily need weights. Use your own body's weight. Look up calisthenics online there are tons of resources. On YouTube I'd recommend calisthenicsmovement and Tao Physique. Here is a document showing bodyweight progressions :https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a8tlZ-zbF695HA3Lmm20OIYeYYxo1lmUOczUXKLoL4s/edit#gid=1833143925
I worked out my chest 2 days ago and they are just a tiny bit sore today.Should I try to do my upper body workout today or just wait until tomorrow to lift weights?
>>56237483>>meditation (mindfulness) is incredibly good for youMeditation is hugely overrated and its nothing but a fad.
>>56238324>Because you will go your whole life craving nicotine, and won't ever truly be free from it.Not true. Everyone i know including my self quit cold turkey and i nor them ever misses it
