1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Eating a lot of pizza will get your heart rate up, but not in a good way.

    On the coffee thing, I know a guy who drinks 5+ cups of those small espressos made of floating lava a day, I have no idea how he does it or how he doesn't have explosive diarrhea 24/7/365.

    Posted to the other thread, don't know much about lifting, though, so don't laught!!

    In other news, my wife has a super sick job offer in Singapore of all places, if we end up moving there in the next month, I'm just gonna buy some Rick dunks and Uni-qlo shorts, delete my account here, and quit fashion forever because I'm not wearing anything else in that awful heat

    It's hard to be truly fit without some use of free weights, even if your goals don't include size. Bodyweight routines can work but I'm not sure why you would limit yourself like that unless you didn't have a gym available.

    what do you mean by "truly fit"? I only run since I find gyms lame and I haven't noticed fitness issues over the years (although it probably helps that I watch what I eat Mon-Fri)

    If you like running the "how many miles have you run today" thread to be pretty good for discussion. RHET is more lifting/general fitness focused.

    I've found that with bodyweight exercises I can strike a nice balance between having a pleasant amount of muscle tone and being a lazy cheapo

    I think we need define fit, for me it's being muscular with a low bf%.

    Being able to run long distances and not lifting is more d being in shape in my world, but essentially it's two words or the same thing.

    What I mean is, you'd most likely notice a marked increase both in running ability, flexibility, and in how good you feel if you added whole-body weight training a couple days a week. It's the same as if you only lifted but did zero cardio, you're fit in one dimension (endurance) and not in the others (strength + flexibility). Assuming you don't do a lot of stretching, obviously.

    NN, question is, if you were to move would you keep your stash of clothes or would you sell most of it

    gotcha, makes total sense. My pushups/situps every morning + running routine works for me, but mostly I hate fussiness so can't see myself going back to gyms anytime soon. And the meathead look that's become overwhelmingly popular around here probably isn't helping

    Oh fuck! Now we're talking about the semantics about the different ways people interpret the word "fit". All we need now is a meme from Moo and the cycle will be complete.

    Guys, what's the best stretching/flexibility program out there that can be done in, say, under 30 minutes/day?

    I do boot camp regularly, and it pretty well kicks my ass. It's great for building all around muscle tone and aerobic capacity. The most elaborate piece of equipment is a jump rope.
