I am a SS coach. Pilates is actually only good for 6-12 weeks because anything is good for a novice. You can't increase a load and there is a limit in progression that other training types can surpass easily.

If I felt someone needed back I would add negative chin ups>bandedchinups>chin ups or bat wings or seated rows if I had access.

>Strength helps stamina and mobility naturally.

>Which is just blatantly untrue, strength training won't make you more mobile in the slightest, and pretty much any half decent lifter will be doing mobility work and stretching on the side as a result of that.

With mobility strength does help. It's a good foundation to stop you from injuring yourself. If someone has weak muscles and ligaments and tries to do the splits they could tear the ligament or muscle. Stength training prevents that from occurring.

Strength should be a priority. When I say strength I don't mean "I can lift a car". I mean making your body strong enough to be able to work in the most efficient manner for every day life tasks. Strength training also sets up a foundation for other training preventing you from injuring yourself. It also helps harden the walls of the heart allowing it to work more effectively under stress.

I also didn't say cardio is useless. If you look in my plan I put cardio in there. However I separated it from the same day as strength training. Cardio is basically something that people online have to chose for themself as I don't know them. Yes, I said to use it as assisted rest but assisted rest is really important. Strength gives you a foundation for cardio. But cardio won't help your quality of life in the long run. You are better off doing more strength then cardio in a workout plan for that reason. you could do 2 thirds strength to 1 third cardio for instance.

Pilates is not strength training, and comparing it to it is honestly just retarded, as well as pointless.

>Stength training prevents that from occurring.


Sure, strength makes it less likely that you'll injure yourself, but in no way does it train mobility, which is why you have to add it in as an accessory to the routine, because you can easily injure yourself doing strength training without basic mobility, and lifting alone won't fix that, you need to do other work.

Your example of doing the splits actually supports me, because it doesn't matter if you squat 300lbs, if you jump straight to doing big stretches like that you're going to hurt yourself and be unsuccessful if you're starting off as the average person with only the basic flexibility to do a squat with decent form.

And true, you didn't say it was useless, you said this
>Cardio should always be minimal in my eyes as strength will help cardio.

Which is just dumb. No-one lifts to get better at cardio, because the effect lifting has on your ability to do cardio based exercise is minimal.

I said it supports, as in sets a foundation.

Sure, it's an extreme example but the extremity is not the point. You can injure yourself trying to touch your toes.

>Which is just dumb. No-one lifts to get better at cardio, because the effect lifting has on your ability to do cardio based exercise is minimal.


Without a foundation of strength cardio can injure you. The person I was responding to is obviously a beginner. Other wise her plan wouldn't be such a mess. Besides cardio increases eostrogen and decreases testosterone which decreases the amount of lean mass you can build. Hense why I suggest to use cardio as an assisted rest. Not ignore it completely. Do strength in the gym and go for a jog outside.

>I said it supports, as in sets a foundation.

You keep using the words "sets a foundation", but you're not defining what it means, and I'd honestly argue the complete opposite.

You need to have a base of mobility to be able to lift safely. You don't need to be able to lift heavy weights to be able to be flexible.

>Without a foundation of strength cardio can injure you.


I mean, if you have absolutely no strength whatsoever, sure, but in that case you should be in some sort of rehab situation, not a gym.

>To get better at cardio you need to do both. the muscles are more efficient if you stregth train which increases endurance. Cardio for cardio will put you in a catabolic state if done wrong.


To be the absolute best you do, absolutely, but we're not talking about that. Strength training won't make you able to run further, or swim any better than you can now, you need to train those things separately to be able to improve by a significant margin.

>You keep using the words "sets a foundation"….

You know how a foundation in a house supports and holds up a house? Well the body need a foundation as well. To be able to do exercise more efficiently you need to have a base amount of strength. Exercise in simple terms is "putting a stress on the body enough that it needs to adapt".

>You need to have a base of mobility to be able to lift safely. You don't need to be able to lift heavy weights to be able to be flexible.


It can actually be dangerous to be flexible while lifting. Sure you need to squat below parallel but being hyper mobile can actually cause bad form without strength to support the body. This goes for all forms of exercise and training.

>I mean, if you have absolutely no strength whatsoever, sure, but in that case you should be in some sort of rehab situation, not a gym.


Look at crossfit verse body pump verse lifting and look at the amount of injuries due to fatiguing out. Look at those who have adapted to the moves and see if they suffer any injuries.

My meds have stopped working, I've gotten progressively worse with my anxiety and depression, I've lashed out at my friends and they don't want to be around me, which I guess isn't too surprising considering I'm borderline suicidal (honestly if I hadn't had an attempt before and didn't know what a shithole the mental hospital is, I probably would have swallowed a bunch of pills right now).
I'm trying to get help, but it's expensive and the new drugs I need have to be ordered. I just want to get better and I hate myself and how sick I am but I feel like I'm just such a mess and a burden and everyone would be happier if I were gone.
My best friend wont even reply to me when I ask if she'd care if I died and my other friend said it's just that she doesn't know how to react but I honestly feel like no one would notice or care.

Back when I was 15, I started writing a novel for National Novel Writing Month. It was a goofy urban fantasy about a warlock that lives in Vancouver who has to take down an evil centuries-old cult with his friends. I had my own magic system planned out, and it was full of monsters and dragons and homonculi and creepy cults and vampires and stuff and was like ~30,000 words long and I ended up deleting the whole thing on a whim out of insecurity because I told my friends about parts of it and they made fun of it. I randomly remember it every now and then and I get so sad that I can never read it again. It wasn't great of course but I think I only went downhill creatively since then, and there were some passages that I remember really liking that I would love to go back and read. I don't remember much of the story anymore and I even forgot the main character's name, which makes me sad because I got pretty attached to him.

I'm the one you replied to and I was 500% expecting you to say A Serbian Film. It was one of the films I researched back then. (I might look into the other ones you mentioned since I hadn't heard about any of them, though like I said I'd never watch them.)

Like another anon said, ASF is just a load of attempted shock value of no real substance and no thought put into it beyond that. It got the recognition that the edgelord intended though, so I guess he'd be satisfied. Genuinely feel bad for Serbian people because of it though. Unflattering title to say the least.

the vast majority of guys have hair too short to wildly flap about in the wind though. awkward guys would be more likely to let their hair get long enough to do so before dragging themselves to the barber.

i think you're right though. it reminds you of an awkward guy you've seen before but that doesn't necessarily mean he's a virgin or all guys like this are virgins.

No. 188776

>>188775
Yeah, true, but I think that anyone with long hair is likely to be bothered by the wind to some degree unless you're putting a heap of product in it, which even most guys who do care about themselves and have longer hair aren't doing.

It's like a lot of those memes, they're sort of made just to make people insecure for replies, it's generalised enough that people will find stuff that fits them, but has a few more specifics in it so that it's not just obviously "Hey this is everyone with anxiety out there".

Let's talk about/speculate people who have had work done. Now I personally don't think there's anything wrong with it, however it starts becoming a problem when these people claim it to be real. I'll start the thread with a fairly popular Instagram model/dancer ms_alottabootie. Recently she appeared on the Wendy Williams show (https://youtu.be/BfBE9MxxaiI) impressing many in the audience as well as her staff. However what bothered me is the fact she claimed her most noticeable asset (no pun intended) was 100% real, not even one fat transfer done. However if you look at her Instagram you'll see obvious signs that she had work done such as scars, a lumpy texture on her stomach from liposuction, and oddly shaped hips that many surgeons give to people for some reason. The picture is a comparison of her from 4 years ago to now.
