GMOs and homosexuality
ACBA15A0-EE7E-4B2D-AEF8-556EA9848505
>tl:dr, eat right or you’ll become gay (theoretically)

Although you may have heard of the negative effects of GMOs such as herbicides and pesticides used in modern foods, what you may not be familiar with is the explicit effects of these GMOs.

One chemical group found in fertilizers and harsh cleaning products that are very likely used in the food you eat are xenoestrogens. These are chemicals that mimic the function of estrogen in binding to estrogen receptors on the body. They may temporarily or permanently affect bodily hormone levels by creating feedback loops in your pituitary glands which inhibit the natural production of chemicals like testosterone. One common family of xenoestrogens is phthalates, a family of chemicals found in pvc pipes, fertilizers, bodily hygiene products, water bottles, and many, many more.

The effects of these chemicals have been observed in rats to lower blood testosterone levels, and have been correlated with cancer and other adverse health effects in humans. These results are especially worrying, as rats’ similar chemical anatomy to humans means that it is very likely these effects can be observed in humans as well.

Aside from phthalates, the chemical atrazine, which can be found in fertilizers and even your water supply is another xenoestrogen. It has been observed to have adverse effects in humans and amphibians, even saying some amphibians, such as frogs, to develop hermaphroditism.

Why are these findings important? A government-sponsored study by Jacques Balthazart in 2011 found that testosterone levels in males and females is linked to sexuality:

>https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3138231/#!po=0.515464

Picrel details the theoretical findings of the researcher about the effects of testosterone levels on sexuality, and they are believed to be linked.

> “I believe that biological studies suggest a significant contribution of genetic and hormonal factors in the control of sexual orientation.”

>Pic related walks into a bar and slaps your girlfriends ass. She's into it, she kisses him back. They're making out now. You try to pull them apart but she pushes you away and you fall down. You start crying on the floor, they start laughing while holding eachother. You get up and run outside sobbing, people move out of your way but won't engage you. The cold night air washes over your glistening cheeks as tears stream down to dot your shirt. She was rubbing his neck. She only does that when she wants to fuck. Your tears run dry and you colapse to the cold cobblestones. You don't know how long you were running but the empty streets find you far from prying eyes. You gaze up at the pale white moon in the clear night sky and think about how different things could have been... if you'd only trained back.

I'm getting a rowing machine because mh backs seriously lagging behind my chest and arms. Will it also hit legs/glutes though if done correctly? The complete motion seems to start like almost a horizontal deadlift where you push up with your legs. If I could supplments some back/leg day at home with a rowing machine I'd be a happy camper.

Has lifting/cardio helped you accomplish your purpose/goals in any way?

Why i ask and why this is fit related: whenever i hear or talk to someone about self improvement, bettering yourself or having a good life in general the one thing they always bring up is working out.

Of course working out is healthy and everyone should have some sort of regular physical activity but other than being healthy and having a nice body in what other ways does fitness help somebody accomplish things non fit related?

Would i have a better chance at becoming a world wide known video designer if i worked out a few days out of the week?

TLDR Is strength and endurance training in the same session counterproductive?

Sup /fit/, I'm train for boxing and I just started lifting a few months ago. I've been making solid progress in terms of hypertrophy, but I have to stay within a certain weight range so I can't gain too much mass. I want to maximize strength and endurance so I was thinking of mixing low reps at a higher intensity with high reps at a lower intensity. For example, I would squat 3x6-8 at 75%1RM and then do 3x12-15 at 50%1RM immediately after. Does that make any sense or am I just wasting my time? It seems like it would work better for compound lifts than machine work. Calisthenics are an option as well, but I'm not sure where to start regarding progression onto more difficult movements (planche, front lever, etc.)

Open to books on the subject. Also I've been a bit sedentary lately. t. 183/85

Deadlifts are the most based and redpilled exercise you can do.
The squatter gets squeezed into the bottom of the range of motion with help from the load, while the deadlifter has to assume the hardest position of the lift unloaded, with no help from the weight at all.

I'm trying to calculate my TDEE for weight loss, I'm not really sure of how lifting weights affects TDEE and I don't want to go too low so my lifts don't go too low and I don't hemorrhage the little muscle I have. I'm at 5'8, 175lbs(posting picrel for visual reference of body fat) and I'm trying to go for a recomp since I am already quite overweight. I also want to ask two additional questions, how much lower than my TDEE should I cut for a recomp and wants a good exercise substitute for RDL(I can'r seem to do them right).

For corpulent cats who have accepted the need to achieve a better physique through meaningful hard-work, strategy, and dedication..
This is not QTDDTOT, stick to questions on fat loss. Post height and weight when asking for advice.
Join our Fatty Contest:https://www.fattycontest.com/

>What do I do first?
1. Read https://physiqonomics.com/fat-loss/
2. Calculate your Body Fat Percentage http://fitness.bizcalcs.com/Calculator.asp?Calc=Body-Fat-Navy
3. Calculate your TDEE https://www.sailrabbit.com/bmr/
Remember to use bodyfat% and use Katch-McArdle Formula with sedentary settings or your TDEE will be too high.
4. Plan your weight loss https://www.losertown.org/eats/cal.php
5. Track your nutrition with MyFitnessPal (better for packaged food), Cronometer (better for generic food/macros) or LoseIt (great for both).

>Now what?
Count calories, all of them.
Eat about 500-1000 less calories than your TDEE.
Buy scales, be accurate.
Learn to cook. Try to stick to lean protein and green vegetables.
Eat a lot of protein. 1g per lb of goal lean body mass.
Doing cardio, even just walking, will improve your health. There is no such thing as a healthy fat heart, but you can offset the risks.
Lifting weights will keep and gain muscle mass and burn fat much quicker. No lifting results in the body burning away muscle AND fat.
Drink more water.
Read the /fit/ sticky http://liamrosen.com/fitness.html

>DON'T
Eat refined sugars, they're terrible for you regardless of calories.
Eat processed foods.
Drink your calories (alcohol, soda, starbucks).
Freak out over a weight loss stall. Plateaus can last up to three weeks.
"Reward" yourself. Cheat days cheat only yourself.
Be a retard.

/peg/ Penis Enlargement General
113399539-well-equipped-man-measure-hes-penis-with-a-measuring-tape-
Anyone interested in a monthly PE thread?

A general thread to talk about progress, methods, resources, etc.

I'm thinking at the start of every month we post our stats/gains/goals etc.
I trust /fit/ to be generally honest and unbiased.
So maybe after a couple months we can collectively prove/disprove what doesn't work, and what does (if anything)

Scared of eating
9E48A201-822F-4A7B-8907-CD10E43D465B
Right lads I need some help. So I’m fucking small (5’7, 125 lbs or so). I’ve been trying to put muscle on for a while now but no dice.

I’ve been told I need to eat more which comes to the problem. I’m fucking scared of gaining weight and it making me look fat or pudgy. Any of you guys have any tips on how to not look like a Holocaust survivor or the average Midwestern American?

I fucked my lower right back 2 years ago doing a deadlift (with barely any weight) and I’m going fucking insane.
>No fracture in x-ray
>saw PT for few months, no progress, eventually was told it’s largely psychological
>covid, no lifting of any kind at all at this point for 5 months or so yet pain continues
>start lifting again, pain continues, sometime is made better or worse by lifts, avoiding squats and core work as they can sometimes cause pain
>deadlifts actually seem to be helpful or irrelevant to pain at this point
>start seeing chiropractor last spring
>they begin giving me exercises with inconsistent instructions of which ones to do
>not helping
>trying to tel myself pain is largely mental

>every time back gets better it becomes more easily susceptible to becoming inflamed and painful again

Also I had an MRI at one point, I was told I had
> Pars Defect and Listhesis at the L5-S1 Level, grade 1
and
>Posterior annular fissuring

I barely even understand what to do anymore. I’ve made some progress in muscle over the last couple years but it’s barely anything and this is a huge obstacle, not just in that but in my life. I am basically hypnotizing myself to tell myself it’s in my head, I try squaring and breathing better with my diaphragm, but it’s like everything I do that helps can also hurt it.

Please somebody help me the fuck out. Even if somebody can give me an email address to consult with, I’m not kidding. I’m at my wits end.
Every time this gets better it just gets worse, this has become a bigger issue than I’m able to even formulate description for with anybody that might be able to help. Everything that helps either eventually stops helping or then just makes it regress to being as bad as it was immediately after the injury.

How do I cook it? Like everytime I’ve tried to cook it, baked in a pan grilled etc, it’s horrible. Even if I manage to make it so it’s edible, it always turns into an unappetizing chunk of rubber in the fridge. I love actually cooked right chicken and if I could just fucking learn to cook it properly…

Bench Press Program
benchpress1
Coming off of a few injuries looking to increase my bench seriously. best was 245lbs paused was around 185lbs. Right now I'm 5'7 175lbs. 1rm probably around 210 paused, I have always been stronger in things like OHP. Standing barbell OHP 1rm is about 160 strict press, and I usually do a 4x10-12 of 75lb seated dumbell ohp. Have tried a few programs in the past like Canditos upper lower, and tried Greg knuckols 2x a week intermediate bench and 3x a week intermediate bench, both to limited success. Help bros, I just wanna be able to rep 2 plates like its nothing.

Do you get all the hypertrophic growth you need for your forearms by just doing deadlifts, shrugs, hammer curls, etc or do you need to do isolation exercises for your forearms like wrist curls?

Asking cause my genetics suck and I have small wrists and forearms so wondering if adding an isolation exercise would be needed, or just overkill and too much volume.

WTF
12
I just compared bunch of different bodies next to each other in the body visualizer and WTF

these creatures that we call women are incredibly small. Why did I always act so insecure around them then? When I could literally throw them around with no problem. I can see now, that women are incredibly weak and it's turning me GAY. Weakness disgusts me. I'd rather have a strong hardy individual next to myself. After all why would anyone surround themselves with such pathetic beings like women instead? It's counterproductive.
