George Floyd Do you figure this barbell placement is approximately the position of the "neck" that Chauvin's tibial tuberosity was on?

>>11 Good punching advice. I used to box as a kid and the tfour biggest things I was taught were >strengthen your wrist, because anything that bends will eventually break >the thumb-inside-the-fist-thing, never ever fucking do that >the 2 or 3 knuckle rule, it's critical for follow-up strikes because you have a consistent "base" and know where your hand is at all times (hard to describe but I liken it to having a consistent picking technique while playing guitar, or learning to type via Home Row) >don't try to punch through your target. Learn the distance and learn to "snap" your punches so you connect at the last possible instant. This is why "getting inside" is so critical in boxing if you're on the defensive; someone who can't fully extend their arm can't fully bring their strength to bear on you
>>4 >>11 Anon you really should use boxing gloves for heavy bag work. Seriously, in the beginning the most important thing is to train consistently and you cant do that if you keep hurting your hands or wrists.
My ankles feel much better after running barefoot in the beach sand, I tried running on the sidewalk but my ankle started hurting again after a few minutes of running with just my socks on. Running shoes cause the same problem, I am gonna try running on the grass more because the beach isn't practical during the weekends.

Is your physique just for your own ego or is it actually put to use? What sports do you train for? Hopefully not the kind people buy expensive tat for and drink while watching.

I've been gradually improving my ability to run. I go out every day or two and run a little bit further each time. Now I can run just over two miles in about twenty minutes. Never thought I'd be able to do this reliably, and I feel great after.
Two weeks and no gunt. >>74 That's great anon. Keep it up and you'll accomplish more than you know.

Cooking General /fit/izen 10/14/2020 (Wed) 01:45:15 Id: fd93c5 No. 6 [Reply]
Lets post and recipes, feedback and suggestions. /fit/ related cooking of course.
3 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>19 >>20 Do you really put so much effort into cooking every day? I eat the same meals almost everyday. That way i know exactly what i need to buy and what the expenses are. It makes it easy to stick to it. I would suggest having an bunch of staple meals that you can eat often and are easy to make. More extravagant meals can be inserted as wanted. Important is a base that you can always fall back to.
>>24 >Do you really put so much effort into cooking every day? Actually, yes I do. You don't want to hear the steps I take to make Ramen, which I have about 3 times a week. Just out of curiosity, what does your diet look like?

Calisthenics /fit/izen 10/19/2020 (Mon) 12:39:10 Id: 1fc2f9 No. 38 [Reply]
Is it possible to obtain a strong build with merely calisthenics. I've been doing it a year or two and I've gotten a lot buffer and lost a lot of weight, I used to weigh over 14 stone now I'm in the 10 stone region. What I want to know is if I can build my muscles using just calisthenics so I don't have to use any money on buying impractical weights and not waste any money going to the gym. Better to use just your body than things that are completely unnatural imo.

>>38 I switched to calisthenics, and what I noticed is that I do make gains a lot faster, and in areas that I felt like I'd been neglecting for a while (like lats and pecs) I think they're more efficient for muscle growth, but then after recently lifting weights again I noticed that I get a bigger testosterone boost and development in muscle density when I do things like bicep curls and bench presses. Just do whatever works best for your body.
sort of, I could do one arm pushups, I still look like dyel but still look a lot stronger than what I was a year ago. I probably need to to eat more, I am 140lb 5'9

>a gallon of whole milk has 2300 calories >has a good balance of macronutrients and many of the micronutrients you need, also hydrates you >every day drink a gallon of milk and eat some fruit and veggies for fiber, other micronutrients and some extra calories >occasionally eat some meat to get extra stuff >could easily live on $6 a day, don't have to waste time cooking or eating. Tell me why I couldn't do this.
>>57 >Tell me why I couldn't do this. Ask the Irish. They didn't just live off potatoes, but also drunk a huge amount of milk to cover what the potatoes didn't give them. When the potatoes went away the milk alone didn't cut it.

Help me plan my exercise routine /fit/izen 03/19/2021 (Fri) 15:25:58 Id: cffa89 No. 56 [Reply]
So, long story short, I want some advice on planning my exercise routine on Wii Fit U. Pretty much what I have been doing is spending the first hour, every morning doing 10 minutes of "aerobics" (Usually playing a regular Wii game that requires motion controls), then 20-30 minutes of actual exercising (In Wii Fit U), then another 10-20 minutes of "aerobics" (Again, in a regular Wii game). Reason I've followed this routine is because one of the fitness instructors at the gym I used to go to recommended it as the "best" way to get a workout. Another thing they recommended is that I don't do the same exercises every day, otherwise my body starts building an endurance against those specific exercises. So, the routine I've been following for the past few months is just selecting randoms exercises in WFU, five days a week, with Satudays spent going hiking/jogging for an hour (Plan on increasing that time as the days get warmer). Outside of that, I currently work at a fabrication facility, so I spend most of my days walking and lifting (Though, it looks like I'll be let go within the next few weeks). <So, here is my dilemma, what exercises routines would be best recommended in order for me to receive the most benefits? As far as my body's circumstance, I'm currently 5'11", average around 205 lbs. The only real "goal" that I have is that I want to reduce my waist size. Outside of that, I just want to build up the rest of my body, especially when it feels like I spend too much time building up my legs because of everything else I do (Apparently I average around 8000-10,000 steps each day). Also, I only have the chance to set up two routines because the first slot is already filled with activities that do not require the Fit board because, in the past, it seems to become very finicky whenever I change the batteries and it refused to connect or turn on. So, what are your recommendations?
