    Yeah, I disagree with you as well Fuji.

    Lifting can be whatever you want it to be, if you decide to make it an emotional and spiritual journey, why not.

    wut. wasn't trolled by fuji, it's just that fuji's post seemed like a copypasta like the "thick solid tight" or "Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way?"

    I was just referring to this part "I hate when people take lifting this seriously, it's not a fucking spiritual journey"

    Which i'm sure is not trolling, as he's repeated that several times over.

    When doing DB bench, is it better to follow PL form (arched back, J-shape path) or go flat bench?

    I do BB bench PL style, if that matters.

    Meh, the biggest emotional journey you'll have if you choose to test your limits after training natty for 6 months is finding the right dose of aromotise inhibitor to balance your test and estrogen so your neither listening to James Blake at 5am or struggling to feel your penis.

    In a more general view I don't see how the commitment of lifting on a non competitive level can be some spiritual journey. 8 hours a week in the gym or so isn't some massive commitment and it's pretty enjoyable.

    Haha, the guys I know who do powerlifting and have good numbers have better asses than a lot of girls I know.
    Of course, the girls that are training for powerlifting blow everyone else out of the water.

    It's not a spiritual journey for me but I could see it being a really important tool for someone who suffered emotional trauma and used it to gain a sense of control in their life.


    Also, aromatase*. And if ais are killing your libido stay they fuck away from vitamin t.

    Gym manager is russling me. He has renamed the gym the "performance centre" because he wants everyone here to be athletes and functional. We now have special times just for our "athletes". Little does he realise LSE is probably the 2nd least athletic university in the UK after imperial. We only have 1 mirror in the gym because he doesn't want people to rely on them for form. We have eleiko training plates and the small ones are the kind that are approved for IPF competitions. Kind of pointless when it's all being used for this
