Just Fucking Lift (self.askTRP)

submitted by Heathcliff--

Just fucking lift already.

The vast majority of your problems will be solved by just doing some form of fucking exercise.

I know a lot of you kids still don't lift. You read the sidebar a million times over and buy all the books and practice your lines and 'build your frame', but you seem to think for some deluded reason that you're the fucking exception and you don't need to lift.

All of us losers are just insecure and overcompensating, you however, can get away with being an oestrogen weakshit because you're just different. Girls will notice your uniqueness and not care about your physique.

Fucking. Bullshit.

You're too scared to exercise, too lazy to put in the work, and too damn stupid to realise that this is the BIGGEST factor holding you back in your life.

Listen, retard, you have the ancestral genes of marathon runners, hunters and soldiers. Your body is a machine built to crush and destroy things.

If you are not maxing out on your physical capabilities as a man, then you are operating in CHILD mode. Your body is soft and weak and pathetic like a child, you are not a man.

Every single cell in your body is tightly and intimately related: improve your body in one aspect and the rest follows; every single guy here will tell you that exercise has greatly improved his cognitive abilities. Brain fog lifted, willpower increased.... you literally get smarter.

If you do not exercise, you are operating at STUPID capacity. We, the meatheads who pick things up and put things back down again, are much, much smarter than you are.


The Pareto Principle states that 80% of results come from 20% of the work. Well wanna know what the real 20% is for improving yourself as a man? The one activity that reaps the most rewards? That's right. Lifting some fucking weights.

Your life will drastically improve should you employ this one simple life change. This is the most time efficient and effective thing you can do to grow as man.

Fuck the sidebar, fuck the rational male, fuck frame, fuck cold approaching, fuck haircuts and style and IOIs and shit tests. Fuck women.

All of these things are moot if you do not lift. Lifting will fix your life in and of itself. Your testosterone will increase, you will learn discipline and accountability and you will stop giving a flying fuck. Your frame will build naturally as your balls finally begin to descend and you will game women effortlessly without realising it. You will literally become the man you dreamt of becoming through this one act alone.

Because the biggest blue pill lie you were told was that daily exercise is unnecessary, and just a hobby for the insecure and obsessed.

Exercise is imperative and non-negotiable. You must break sweat every single day of your life until you die. If you do not, you are not a male. You are not even fully human.

Just lift you stupid fags. Stop wasting your time posting a bazillion threads about 'this one girl' and masturbating over every new trp post. You won't learn shit. Lift some damn weights and ALL your problems will be solved.

And yes, I was inspired to write this by the recent fatass post. The only thing that pisses me off more than lards are the skinny retards who think they're the magical exception and can coast through life without exercising.

Fucking lift already.

"It is a disgrace to grow old through sheer carelessness before seeing what manner of man you may become by developing your bodily strength and beauty to their highest limit" - Socrates

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”

I prefer this iteration.

[–]1Captain_Save_A_Hoe_ 78 points79 points  (25 children)

You haven't begun your red pill journey until you've started seriously lifting.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I can't remember where I read this, but when asked what was one of the biggest regrets in this old man's life (he was at least 75) he said "Not having visible abs."

Many people think that when you get old, everything you worked for will be for nothing. That's simply not true and I find that reasoning stupid, as I would rather live a strong life and lose it then never live one at all.

[–]IntensePancakes 260 points261 points  (118 children)

Ok, let me clarify something, because posts like this are what make people not want to lift.

You don't need to be fucking Arnold Schwarzenegger.

You just need to be respectably fit.

Do you need to go to the gym 7 days a week and eat perfectly clean? No.

Do you need to go to the gym 3-5 days a week and keep an eye on your macros? Yes.

Do you need to be able to deadlift 500 pounds? No. Should you be able to bench your body weight for 8 reps? Yes.

You need to maintain a strong, healthy body not because your ancestors were brutish warriors and you're wasting your potential, but because it is a responsible, practical thing to do for an adult male. Being fit not only increases your lifespan and quality of life but it is the first thing anyone will notice about you, and it says a lot. Because it is not something you can buy. It takes pure discipline. It commands respect.

To restate the main point though, this doesn't mean that you have to be some ripped beast. In fact I would advise against it. Achieving that kind of physique takes way too much time away from other activities in your life. You should aim to be well rounded physically, mentally, professionally, and creatively. Fitness is only one piece of the puzzle, though it is an essential piece.

[–]1TheProphetPhysiquiel 58 points59 points  (8 children)

This is true, but I think people use this as a weak excuse more than an actual reason for not wanting to lift. People will say "oh, I don't wanna look like Arnold, that's gross." Well, guy, Arnold spent his entire life in the gym, and he was on gear, and he had absolutely perfect genetics. Even if you wanted to, you would never look like him. You are, however, fully capable of being respectably fit.

[–]medicineandsports 28 points29 points  (0 children)

“Well, guy..” Lmaoo I was dying

[–]Casanova-Quinn 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Allegedly when people said to Arnold "I'd never want to look like you" he often responded "Don't worry, you never will."

[–]IntensePancakes 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Agreed that some people use it as a weak excuse.

I think the problem for most guys that don't lift isn't that they are deluding themselves that they don't want muscles, but that the whole fitness process seems intense and overwhelming. That's the idea that these "listen up you fucking fags" posts propagate. In reality, as we know, fitness is like brushing your teeth. Takes some discipline, but it is simple, effective, and makes you feel damn good.

[–]Cryxtalix 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Isn't that the fucking male hamster.

[–]VirginPlaya 1 points1 points [recovered]

By addressing people "you retarded fag go lift" you won't recruit new people to try the hobby. Only, people who already lift will respond positively to this sort of motivation, because they already know why lifting adds value to their life's.

This post is apitome of circle jerking.

[–]Erthiros 7 points8 points  (6 children)

I do that anyway, go to the gym 7 days a week and eat perfectly clean. Lifting keeps me sane. The house of iron is my happy place

[–]truedemocracy3 2 points3 points  (29 children)

I've been working out almost daily for 3 years and still can't bench my body weight 8x haha any advice? Just recently cut back on bench weight and added reps, don't have a spotter which made it really difficult to make progress on bigger reps

[–]WinstonMcFail 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Ignore that part of the post. Arbitrary goal. Train don't strain. Injury prevention is objective number 1

[–]Fryguy48 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Hurting yourself sets one back by a lot. Take your time.

[–]WinstonMcFail 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is so important, and what I tell everyone to make their top priority.. far above lifting more and weighing more. Consciously consider injury prevention every lifting session. This pursuit IS NOT easy on the body. I've met many a middle age ex lifters that suffer from joint and muscle issues on the daily due to their heavy lifting years. Not to mention, it takes months and years to build muscle but literally days and weeks to lose it if you are inactive due to injury.

[–]Ieatlinner 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Lose weight, if you’ve been bending for three years but can’t hit 150-200x8 you’re fucking up

[–]Riftactics 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I am 6‘ 5‘‘, weigh 240-250. I can deadlift 500, can’t bench 250 for more than a single.

[–]StandardBoilerplate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just ask anyone around to spot. I find gains when I have a rest day in between to heal the muscles, you get a better pump the next day.

When you go everyday the muscle has no room to expand.

[–]Platinide 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Train for hypertrophy, focus on muscular contractions. Benching your body weight for 8 reps means nothing if you turn the bench press into a shoulder/triceps dominant exercise. Lower the weight, swallow your pride/ego and see your chest grow. Remember, your muscles don’t know/care about the numbers on dumbbells, only about what they feel.

[–]ddbsirt 1 points1 points [recovered]

Aim for a weight at 8 reps. Do 3 sets of that. Keep doing that weight until you can do 10 reps for all 3 sets. When you've done that, increase the weight.

Find your TDEE, make sure you're eating 250-500 calories more. Protein minimum 150g.

[–]endertheender 14 points15 points  (4 children)

this is irrelevant.

The time it takes to "Look like Arnold" is a LOT longer than it takes to get the effects that OP is talking about.

Basically this is a moot point. look, People will make their own excuses to not do something, even though it is the answer to their problems.

So. Fucking. What. These posts ARE. NOT. FOR. THOSE. PEOPLE.

Fuck those people.

These posts are for the new, uninitiated people who come across this sub everyday, or those who need a kick in the ass to bust their ass as much as they can.

Seriously, this is like a cheat code that people are giving away for free, WHO CARES how it's delivered?

If some dudes get "offended" and are made to "not want to lift"

then they were weak, darwinian failures and will continue to be that way untill:

a)death

or

b)something happens to them that's worse than death.

The End.

GO FUCKING LIFT!

[–]OmegaMan2 6 points7 points  (2 children)

"b)something happens to them that's worse than death."

... and that event is when you see a girl that you really liked and thought was into you, going out with someone else.

For me, the hurt was overwhelming but it was also the turning point in my life, that started me on the path in life that was only made possible through weight lifting.

[–]Celicni 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tbh I'd say that's the case for at least half the dudes here. Seeing your oneitis get fucked by chad (don't have to witness the actual deed but you know what I mean).

[–]StandardBoilerplate 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like to focus the rage into exercise.

[–]aolders 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Should you be able to bench your body weight for 8 reps? Yes.

How long did it take you to do that? I lift for over a year now and I'm still not even close to that (and I'm rather skinny)

[–]ohyasurewhatever 1 points1 points [recovered]

How are you training and more importantly eating? How you look is 80% diet. How strong you are does come down to genetics but that can be manipulated with strength training(lower reps think 3-5)

[–]Celicni 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It shouldn't take you long at all. A year maybe and that's if you start with no experience. You say you're rather skinny, go eat more.

[–]StandardBoilerplate 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Age plays a certain role, also eat, eat, then eat some more.

[–]InterNetting 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You're right, but this only comes after you've developed a routine for exercise. If you're still trying to achieve this and think, oh yeah I need to throw a workout in to make my week well rounded, that ain't gonna work. It needs to be a priority 4-5 days a week until you start going to the gym without having to force yourself and it just becomes what you do.

[–]ddbsirt 1 points1 points [recovered]

You don't need to be fucking Arnold Schwarzenegger.

You just need to be respectably fit.

Do you need to go to the gym 7 days a week and eat perfectly clean? No.

Do you need to go to the gym 3-5 days a week and keep an eye on your macros? Yes.

Do you need to be able to deadlift 500 pounds? No. Should you be able to bench your body weight for 8 reps? Yes.

Where does OP say any of that?

[–]Morphs_ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

He said to lift, not to shoot roids.

If you lift like crazy but stay natural, you will look awesome. Better than "RoidBouncers" with a bloated look.

Think Wolverine.

[–]WinstonMcFail 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I agree that it's smart to stay away from the rods but you're full of shit when you say you'll look better natural. The key, as with anything, is moderation. I assure you that if you hopped on a cycle of 350mgs test a week some anavar.. You will absolutely look better than you ever could natural. You're example wolverine.. Gets that look from roids. Roids do not automatically mean sloppy, bloated meat head look

[–]zmazo98 -3 points-2 points  (45 children)

This comment is gold, however lifting just isn't my style. I personally, would prefer to go out and bike around, go free running, snowboarding. I prefer my exercise to be out and about and entertaining. Just my style

[–]psyna 12 points13 points  (12 children)

That's nice and all lifting not being your style, however it sounds like you're just making excuses for yourself. Doing only cardio related activities will not grow any muscle or improve your appearance. If being skinny or a lardass is your style, don't complain that girls ignore you. Just fucking lift, it takes less than 30 minutes a day. Ofcourse it's boring as hell but so is brushing your teeth. Try it for a few months and see if you want to do without afterwards.

[–]zmazo98 9 points10 points  (10 children)

Dammit I'm starting to see a trend. How is it I managed to get the impression that you had to lift for like 3 hours daily for it to mean shit? I'm definitely going to have try it.

[–]physicalbitcoin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ofcourse it's boring as hell

Listening to music or learning a language on youtube is good brainfood. Helps me get through the boredom.

[–]StandardBoilerplate 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Cardio and the exercises mentioned are great for the legs and butt, but you need some upper body if you don't want to look like a kangaroo.

[–]youcantdenythat 1 point2 points  (6 children)

So buy some weights and a bench and put it in your yard.

Also, bodyweight fitness, flipping tires, sledgehammer training, swimming, rock climbing.

[–]zmazo98 0 points1 point  (4 children)

What is sledgehammer training? Ive never heard of it

[–]Azsun77677 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Fedor Training Video

1:25 of this video.

[–]zmazo98 1 point2 points  (2 children)

So what is the idea behind it? Is it to resist the bounce of the hammer? Or is it more about the swinging?

[–]Azsun77677 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The swinging. It's a rotational strength thing, like chopping wood.

[–]zmazo98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

OK well maybe I'll shovel out a section of my yard today and try it for a bit

[–]Morphs_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That's the problem with modern man. Everything has to be fun and entertaining. That has nothing to do with "style".

I do wakeboarding and trampoline jumping as my fun and entertaining cardio, but I absolutely lift too. Trust that it will grow on you once you start to see results after some time.

[–]RedPillNewb88 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I forget where I read it, maybe it was BPP's book, but one the books mentioned in the sidebar said that women don't want a man who can run as fast as he can from battle. They want a man who will stay and fight. Just something to keep in mind

[–]meaningintragedy 7 points8 points  (12 children)

Shut the fuck up you fucking pussy.

i PrEfEr mY eXeEcIcE tO bE oUt

Because running is gonna make you jacked you piece of shit.

aNd eNtErTaInInG

Lifting isn't supposed to be fun. But it could be.

[–]zmazo98 10 points11 points  (11 children)

??? Are you 3 you immature little fuck ???

[–]ddbsirt 1 points1 points [recovered]

He might be immature but his point stands.

I personally, would prefer if we could all just take the blue pill and live in that fantasy world but we can't.

Having an impressive physique works. Fact.

No-one is saying you can do all those things, just hit the gym too. Everyone has time for 3x1hour/week.

[–]TemplesOfSyrinx[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just hit the gym too

That's really it. Obviously, if long distance running is your thing, you don't want to be completely bulked up. But adding some weights to the training is beneficial.

[–]zmazo98 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Yeah I finally had some civilized conversations with people and turns out my opinion of gyms were skewed with misinformation in some areas and a lack of knowledge in others picking up a membership today

[–]Celicni 1 point2 points  (7 children)

So what did you think? That people get put in a 2x2 box and lift while sweat is poured on them?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Is your girl cute?

I’ll capatalize when she gives me fuck me eyes after she oggoles my popped out chest while you’re getting ready to go ride your pussy ass skinny road bike.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I am a skinny road bike racer and my girl is absolutely incredibly hot. All the girls I get are.

I don't aim for that triangular bulky upper body look that you get from pure lifting, but rather do a small amount of lifting and mainly riding hard. This gives the ultimate body. Something along the lines of Brad Pitt in Snatch. There is nothing more attractive to women.

[–]ExtensivePatience 49 points50 points  (35 children)

Jesus man, I thought this post was directed towards me specifically. You're completely right when you say I'm too scared and lazy, I am. I make a thousand excuses not to go to the gym and I'll probably make a thousand more. It's this mindset that I'm stuck in, it feels like quicksand and I can't escape it. I can't stick to my goals because I'm weak and have no self control or dicipline. I'm scared of what people will think of me when I can't bench press as much as the average guy my age, I know I shouldn't but it feels like it's been branded into my subconscious with hot iron. I know I can't do anything until i get out of it and just do it. Sometimes it feels like I'll never change, I never stop trying but I've failed so many goddamn times now I feel like it just wasn't meant to happen. I understand that I have to make my own destiny but i feel like a fucking failure and sometimes that pisses me off enough to try again an sometimes it turns me into a self loathing bitch where I get nothing done and fall into a depression coma.

[–]honey-laden 18 points19 points  (0 children)

daily habits are what differentiates those of the masses and those who stand out above the rest. being able to mold your habits day in and day out are what can change your life. it is important to understand that self discipline is a limited resource, so you need to allocate it strategically. this is what helped me:

if you want to exercise and you want to make it into a habit, first consider if you have the time to do so and how much time you are willing to allocate to this routine. for example, let's just say you want to go three times a week.

next, think of one of the smallest incremental steps you can take toward beginning that habit. for example, if you want to floss daily, that would be flossing one tooth every day. in our example of exercise, it may mean laying out your gym clothes; when i started the habit of working out, it was putting on my gym shoes. make the habit as easy as possible for yourself.

now, set an alarm three times a week to put on your gym shoes. this alarm is the trigger to complete the task. each time after you complete the task, reward yourself immediately and earnestly. whether or not you go to the gym or floss the rest of your teeth is irrelevant. at this time, your goal is not to go to the gym, it is to begin the habit of putting on your gym shoes. your reward can be patting yourself on the back, giving yourself a high-five, or just telling yourself "good job." celebrate yourself for completing the task. these sound silly, but the goal is to make positive associations with completing your task. avoid trying to beat yourself up when you forget to do the task; try to remain positive.

while i was forming my gym shoe habit, most of the time i actually went to the gym, but i never made myself feel bad for choosing to stay in. those moments forced me to make an active decision instead of just defaulting to staying home.

once you are in the habit of putting on your shoes three times a week, it no longer takes a toll on your self discipline. it is easy for you and you do it without thinking. once this is a habt for you, you have more self discipline as a resource to evolve the shoe habit into a gym habit.

edit: typo

edit: take u/tunedtoperfection 's advice and use whacking off as a trigger instead of an alarm.

[–]TunedtoPerfection 23 points24 points  (18 children)

Next time you want to whack off, use that as a signal to get to the gym. Dude I could barely bench the bar when I started, you know who cared, fucking no one. You know who noticed and looked at me, fucking no one. Just go to the gym

[–]Solistx 1 points1 points [recovered]

Fucking this. I took the damn advice and signed up for the gym at work. I weighed 125lbs in January. I'm just shy of 140lb, heaviest I've ever been. Abs are starting to show, I got some luscious tits now and shoulders worthy of soup broth. Every day 45min, off Saturday and Sunday. Standard Polish diet (lots of meat and starches), just doubled my intake slowly over 3 months.

Fucking lift. No excuses, no pity. Pity is for women. Before no woman looked at me. Now I'll get a glimpse from a 5-6 every now and then. You bet your ass it's gonna be 7-9s in the next 6 months.

[–]Luckysena 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Good progress, keep that shit up. If you don't already I recommend doing weekly progress pics. Sometimes you might feel like you hit a wall with fitness and then you pull up your old photos and see the visible progress and that'll motivate you to keep pushing.

[–]ddbsirt 1 points1 points [recovered]

Assuming you're not short, at 140lbs you should not be encouraged by abs. Be aiming for 160-170lbs with abs.

[–]sadshark 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This right here. Nobody at the gym gives a fuck about what you're doing and even if they do, they do for a second then they move on to whatever the fuck they were doing.

On the contrary, I noticed that people.more often than not appreciate a guy that's skinny or fat but tries to imorove: "at least he's doing something unlike everyone else in his position, good on him"

[–]Kat_Daddy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The funny thing about your situation is once you go consecutively for a few weeks you will laugh at how easily it was to break this mindset. The only people who will even think of how much you are lifting are the ones that are self conscious and use their phones the whole times.

Throw out the junk food, go start a simple diet full of protein, and watch as your nooby gains come in at light speed. PB& J's, turkey sandwiches, turkey breast, rice, oats, protein shakes, leafy greens and fruits. Nooby gains are the easiest inspiration to keep going back to the gym, along with having the "gym high" afterwards and a clear head.

As others in this thread have said, start with calisthenics to get your base strength. Your ego is only going to hurt you when you worry about weights when you're starting. Spend time watching videos and reading about fitness, otherwise you will be wasting your time. My personal favorites are Jeff Cavalier and Jeff Nippard to start your quest to looking like Jeff Seid.

[–]subdermal13 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Stop bitchin and start liftin. You dont even need to go to the gym to start. Fill some empty gallon jugs with water and lift them. Just. Do. Something. Start the process, no matter how simple it may seem, just starting the fucking process moves you in the right direction.

[–]endertheender 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well, look at it this way:

EVENTUALLY you will get mad enough, that you will just say "Fuck it"

and do EVERYTHING YOU CAN to get the results you want.

That point may come tomorrow. . .it may come when your 43, fat, balding and realizing you've done shit with your life so that your own choice is eating bullets or doing what needs to be done to get the results you want. (you don't want to get to this point. . .but this is where you're heading)

You probably don't realize that life is really short.

The answers...cheat codes are here in your face, the longer you wait to take advantage, the less time you'll have to enjoy the benefits.

Really, lifting should be priority #1 reading sidebar #2

Really, the consequences of not doing this, are life-threatening.

Look at Male Suicide Statistics, and realize that this is YOUR FUTURE if you don't do what needs to be done.

You really have no idea how close you are to the Abyss.

Take this as a life or death, Do or Die thing. That's how serious you need to be about it.

If you can't do that. . .

well. . .you can figure out the consequences on your own. . .it's your life, extend it or shorten it at your discretion.

[–]DareyFathom 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Start with bodyweight exercises and master those. They are equally valuable to lifting. Transitioning to weights is much easier after you have some strength training base as well. Plenty of people that "lift" that can't do 20 proper pushups or even a single proper pull up.

[–]nawatcrow20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude I started lifting a year and a half ago. I was a complete noob and had no idea what I was doing. Trust me when I say other gym-goers don't give a damn about you or what you are doing in the gym. As a rule, I never make fun of someone for trying to better themselves. Just go, find a friend to teach you, watch youtube videos, watch other people, and get form correct to start so you don't learn bad habits.

[–]PatsFever 1 point2 points  (0 children)

6’2” 135, 65lb bench press (one 10lb plate each side) at gym was 20 years old me, buddies I worked out with joked and talked shit, but in an encouraging way. Everyone has been there at some point in their lives,

[–]Marty30001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Along with following advice from the other replies, one thing I'd add is go to gym with a friend. Often times it's more fun and effective.

As for mindset, remember popular quotes like "Consistency is key." and combine it with the definition of insanity. Many things require hundreds of tries, but each one needs to be a bit different in some way than the previous. Incorporate meditation and self-control on things like video-games, TV and masturbation - motivation and positive vibes will soon come to you.

Above all, don't lose thirst for improvement because failure. At worst it's a sign that you need to change your approach to something. Stay strong and the RedPill won't disappoint.

[–]BeholdTheHair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm scared of what people will think of me when I can't bench press as much as the average guy my age

Literally the only thought I've ever had when seeing Rando Fatass make an appearance at my gym is thus: "Fuck yeah, dude. Keep that shit up."

This time last year I was Rando Fatass, and while I felt just as silly going in then as you do now, the only actual commentary I've gotten in all my time there is helpful critiques to improve my form and encouragement to keep going.

[–]TunedtoPerfection 83 points84 points  (8 children)

Girls will notice your uniqueness and not care about your physique.

Probably the biggest thing hold most men back. You will never get to show your uniqueness off to any woman worth a fuck if you don't have a physique.

As my physique continues to improve women keep finding me more and more unique. Not a single chick gave a fuck that I could do most math at a pace that would make people's head spin when I looked like I was made from K'nex. Now it's the coolest thing ever to them.

IMO you need to first focus on getting into a routine of going to bed early, waking up drinking water and eating a well balanced meal for energy... then once you start to feel better you can exercise. If you feel like shit and have no energy and go work out, you’ll hate life, hate working out and probably say fuck it in the next round. Get in the right mental state to do something like this, it’s a mental battle you push into the physical realm!!!!!

Joke's on you OP, I've been lifting for nearly 2 years and I still hate myself and get zero pussy. Can't fix autism.

[–]llmercll 3 points4 points  (3 children)

U rite. As a skinny fat man who hates exercise I have noticed the cognitive improvements that come with lifting and have been slowly forcing it into my life.

God I hate it though. I would much rather be reading or devoting my mind to work/thoughts. Lifting subtracts from it in the short term, but benefits in the long term.

It's powerful

[–]llmercll 1 point2 points  (1 child)

my friend, the question is always why. its worth it in the long run

[–]daymi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's worth it because it makes you healthier, you live longer, you have more energy, it teaches you discipline, ALL women like buff guys, other people's first reaction is to defer to you (that happens sooner than you think). All in all there are only positives.

[–]redd_reality 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Every major bout of depression in my life, despite whatever complex philosophical reasons I might use to explain why they happened, have occurred simply because I wasn't meeting my most basic needs as a person.

Exercise (lifting heavy), clean diet, water, sleep, financial responsibility, social interaction, pursuing intimate relationship(s), engaging in meaningful hobbies.

If I'm not happy, smiling every day, it's because I'm not taking responsibility for one or more of those things.

Life is pretty simple.

Lifting is mandatory, but stop pretending like your life will come all together just cause you lift.

It is the first step in the positive feedback loop. Solidify this first and the rest is so much easier and manageable.

[–]VirginPlaya 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Why don't you say that in your post?

The tone of your post will inspire people who already know that lifting is valuable. There's nothing in the post for the "already lifting" crowd, there's no lifting insight or info to help and up my lifting game.

And for people on the fence, at best this post will do nothing, at worst it'll offend.

This is just not effective marketing, man.

as someone who has been lifting for roughly 2.5 years and was socially awkward af before I will say it has made the process easier but I never made an effort to improve myself socially until recently and sometimes don't understand why it's stressed so much on this sub reddit when I see dyel guys shorter than me with similar attractiveness facially pulling more simply because they have more game/social skills

Honestly, once you get some momentum going it'll be the easiest part of your daily routine. I wish the rest of life were as straightforward as lifting. It's pretty much the easiest part of TRP, and it gets the most results.

You wouldn't know quality if it popped up and dick-slapped you across your face.

You don't like the quality? Post something worth reading instead of being a picky bitch. Count yourself fortunate to even have access to this material- the alternative would be for you to figure this shit out on your own.


This isn't a complicated issue-

  • Be attractive.
  • Don't be unattractive.
  • Be invaluable.
  • Don't be dispensable.
  • Lift.
  • Eat right.
  • Educate yourself.
  • Be tenacious in your pursuit of happiness.
  • Be vigilant in your protection of your value.
  • Be ruthless in the defense of your agency.

What else is there to say, kid?

Post something worthwhile instead of taking up valuable bandwidth.

[–]mjdorian 9 points10 points  (6 children)

Why you yelling? Whoa... Ok, I agree that exercise helps you become more in tune with your body, and likely is proven to raise your testosterone (probably because it is also just balancing all your hormones). But I think your approach to convince 'weak' dudes to lift by yelling at them like you're a caricature of a pro wrestler is a bit... self serving. It's deceptively easy to go on an ego boosting power trip by yelling about how everyone is wrong, in the guise of offering helpful advice.

Would be much more effective if you just mentioned the studies that mention that exercise regulates your hormone levels, improves sleep, and also has the benefits of improving your posture. Even those three things dramatically increase your objective attractiveness. As your hormones even have an effect on your confidence level and getting better sleep improves the health of your skin tone.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

I am experimenting with different writing styles/tone. You've seen how dense my other posts can be (and I get complaints with them too, can't please everyone).

But also, depressed losers will never be convinced by objective studies and rational facts. They know lifting is good for them and they should be doing it. That's not the problem.

The problem is their lack of willpower and motivation. Sometimes all they need is a kick in the ass from a drill seargeant.

[–]Lest23 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I agree. It’s not fucking hard to understand why you should lift. Faggots who look for some dumbass studies just to clarify the benefits of lifting are just looking for an excuse not to lift.

It is your obligation as the man of your family to be fit and strong. The amount of dads I’ve seen who are absolute twigs makes me sick. Wouldn’t be able to protect their kids from a bunch of 15 year olds if it came to it.

[–]mjdorian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha. Fair enough, just know that you are limiting the reach of your message by saying it is meant for depressed losers.

Life is complicated, and you are assuming a lot of things about someone by calling them depressed or a loser. Would you say Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were depressed losers? (Not to sympathize with them, but just to point out they would see your use of the term very differently, and people with antisocial tendencies wouldn't be motivated by the message presentation.)

I'm going to assume you are using the term loosely, to refer to people who are lazy and lack willpower so they just complain about life. But be careful with yelling at people being depressed losers, because there are genuinely depressed people out there who would find the heart of your message true, but will not see that heart because you shroud it by over simplifying their problems.

Likely, the person who would most likely benefit from being called a depressed loser is someone who already has a degree of confidence but lacks a little motivation.

[–]Rares5555 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Very good post, gets on top of the already high motivation I have to lift. I have a question though:

We all know you can’t outlift a bad diet, but do you allow yourself an occasional whatever food you enjoy that’s out of your diet? I know how to cook well and also have a sweet tooth, but try to avoid pastry at all costs.

Also, the fact that physical exercise adds to your cognitive potential is obviously true, and has been proven by science time and time again. So to those who want an academic future or a high paying job that requires brains, get your ass in the gym.

Lifting helped me develop the mental frame to recover from failure. I had a falling out with my oneitis. I went off a drunken stupor like it was her fault.She couldn't help but lead me on. I saw her flirting with another dude. I completely lost frame and forgot to remind myself of AWALT.

I felt like shit and extremely guilty. I went out and lifted like a motherfucker. I already had 8 weeks built up so it was ultra intense from the anger. I did that for the entire week. I felt fucking amazing.

I had built the frame and confidence from lifting. The hard work I had already put in had paid off in getting over my bullshit. If this had happened in the past, I would have been pissed off. My time would have been spent fapping, sulking, and playing video games.

Lift fuckers! I was on the Red Pill for almost a year before I started lifting. Start slow. 3 days a week is all it takes. I'm giving up drinking now to keep my rationale mind and to help with my sweet gains. Fucking lift!!! It's worth it. Listen to this guy. He clearly fucks.

Everybody says go to the gym and lift weights but I am more interested into bodyweight exercises(calisthenics) because you can do lots of cool shit once you get enough strenth.Are they equally valuable as lifting weights in gym?

[–]Hellipe 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Yeah, cool! Good advice, however you can get big or shreded as much as you like and still get your ass kicked by skinny guy "half"of your weight. So, my piece of advice is, instead of just lifting start a martial art. The benefits go way beyond health and phisyque. Trust me!

[–]ddbsirt 1 points1 points [recovered]

Why instead? Why not do both?

And what is it with TRP and thinking everyone gets in fights? I'm built and I never get started on. Don't know anyone who gets started on. Must be an american thing or just something that scummy people get involved in.

[–]Dethklokk 1 points1 points [recovered]

I agree 100%. However, this post is about the least common denominator for improvement which is lifting. A cheap gym membership is 10 bucks max and while they probably don't have a squat rack, going from not lifting to any gym at all will be a hell of an improvement.

[–]Lordarshyn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lifting is about so much more than just looks and physique and strength. It's a huge mental excercise. Practicing that mental discipline, challenging yourself, watching yourself overcome difficult challenges, seeing first hand what small incremental goals can ultimately lead to when you're doing full sets at like 5x5 that you couldn't even do one of before...THIS builds a strong frame. It builds a strong body, yes, but it also builds a strong mind. It just FEELS GOOD and outs you right into that primal alpha mindset. More than any other mental excercise. There is just something so masculine and primal about lifting heavy weights. I just got my deadlift up to 320 pounds, while that's not big in the grand scheme of things, I started at 135 (bar and 2 plates) and it has felt amazing to come this far.

Go. Fucking. Lift. Even if you start with just the bar.

[–]francoIsLit 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Its lazy, sad and useless for most people advice. Lifting will help you feel better and healthier but will not improve other parts of your life unless you're fitness athlete that has photoshoots and does compete.

Ive been lifting and doing sports all my life, but it never helped me to feel confident in social situations.

You're fucking retarded if you think lifting will solve all your problems. If anything a good diet will keep your weigh and body fat low enough to where your muscles are defined.

[–]FlipflopETHtop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do agree with all the health benefits. I used to workout 5/7 days a week, strict meal plan, was shredded asf after 1 year. Now i havent trained for 6 months, and my succes rate with women havent decreased at all. Maybe Its due to me being mesomorph and not getting either skinny or fat, and my body retains musclemass pretty well, and i always eat healthy even when not training.

[–]seserta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once I started serious exercise (forgive me TRP for I do bodyweight), my physique started changing drastically. My confidence had gone up. I look so much better with and without clothes on. And my mood is better, I don't feel the urge to fap, I look at women like just people who I'm.attracted to and all of it has gained me my first plate and two others in orbit. And this happened within two months of me taking t seriously.

Sure, I did spend six months before that losing weight, understanding nutrition, muscle activation, resting and hypertrophy. Also ended my LTR. And started meditation seriously.

But I will say that working out seriously, everyday, without fail and combining it with my daily meditation practice has affected a serious change in me.

Do whatever you want but your body needs to feel pain and grow. Only then will you grow as a person. Our mind and body is one. And the easiest way forward is through the body. Some have done it through the mind too. But they are exceptions. Try both and you will have your answer.

Just my two cents.

Also don’t succomb to Fuckarounditis.

Train with compound movements initially then use cables/dumbbells when you ready.

Squat, deadlift, bench, press, pullup, dip and the occasional row. You can always vary the deadlift.

[–]Shukakun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People who know the benefits of lifting and want to start doing it (read; literally everyone here who isn't already lifting) are procrastinating. Maybe they're scared, maybe they're lazy, whatever. The point is, one thing that seems to beat procrastination for almost everyone is to break down tasks into subtasks until each step is extremely easy. "Lift", "Get a job", "Develop abundance mentality", "Get rich". All those things can easily be replied to with "Okay, but how though?". The trick is to turn it into something that is so fucking simple that asking how would be absurd.

Okay, lift. When, how often? 3, 5, 7 times a week? Morning, evening? How much weight? Which exercises? At home or at a gym? If at a gym, which one? What do I eat to actually make any progress? Where do I buy that and how do I cook that?

My point is, there are a lot of details worth considering, and as the number of unknown factors you're dealing with shrinks, so does the resistance to actually doing it.

I have little if any respect for procrastinators and I'm ashamed to be one, you're right to insult us for not getting off our asses, absolutely. But the question is, what's the purpose of the post, to insult people or to get people to lift?

You're right about the sidebar and the literature though. People can read and think and ponder all they want, but without action, nothing happens. If someone reads about basketball every day but only plays for two hours once a month, no one will expect him to become good and no one will believe him when he says he is. Same thing goes for everything else, including lifting and women. That being said, lots of people here are the lifting equivalent of someone who doesn't know what a basketball is. Sure, you can get him on the court and he might figure it out through trial and error or sheer luck, but let's face it, he needs some pointers other than "play basketball you cuck, it's vital for your health and SMV".

Also, remember to sleep. I had forgotten this from before I had discovered women or TRP.

I can’t lift and it annoys me. I used to do BJJ and now I have 5 months of inactivity and still need to stay 3 more months. Anyone has any advice on my current situation? I can’t exercise superior part of my body and I’m reticent to take gym membership just for legs.

[–]truedemocracy3 0 points1 point  (5 children)

What is your take on the ideal body type to aim for? I.e. Do you ever cut out cardio for the sake of quicker gains?

That's my struggle. I eat a strict and healthy diet, spend 12 hours a week working out either lifting, in fitness classes, or in various sports - so am in great shape but some of these workouts prevent bulking up. My max bench press is above average but tbh still pretty pathetic compared to serious lifters, but I don't want to cut out running either

[–]gelstony 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great post! I completely agree. There is something about working your way up to bring able to deadlift 2x your bodyweight and squat/bench your bodyweight that strengthens your mind and your character. If you can lift these kind of weights then other struggles in life pale in comparison.

[–]Ultimate_Mindset 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol, the problem here is that it has worked for YOU, maybe you had a bad body before and felt like that was holding you back, but what if you always had a good body, you start training, not much changes and you dont feel like you overcame something personal like better body. What if you always trained and know that the problem is still mental. Please anwser if you are smarter in that department.

[–]EscortSportage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It really blows my mind when i meet guys that dont do any physical activity. Im no Jock, but from lifting and working out for years, doing sports in HS, and then being in the USMC for 8 years, when i met guys and im like "thats it" you just play video games, and watch netflix? Run? hike? lift? bodyweight? nothing!? really man youre missing out, theres a lot of frail dudes with soft hands out here.

Alright. I've been having trouble swallowing the pill, and I think this is the water that helped me finally gulp it down.

[–]Me_ADC_Me_SMASH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And eat properly. I thought for years that I was eating very little but couldn't lose weight even while lifting. I was gaining strength but I couldn't lose much fat.

Then I got some help and realized that while I really was eating small amounts, it wasn't filling me and it wasn't helping me at all.

Fill up on vegetables whatever you can get your hands on. Put in the effort to cook your own shit, it will taste 1000 times better than anything you buy anyway.

I disagree with OP that you will learn discipline by lifting. Improving requires discipline. You NEED discipline. And you only get that when you act towards a goal you actually want to achieve.

If you want pussy without putting in the effort, you don't really want pussy. If you want that job without making sure you have a 11/10 CV and cover letters and go knock on every door you can physically find, then you really just didn't want that job enough.

We don't talk much about depression here because that surely doesn't help.But it doesn't change what I said, you need to figure out what you would really be proud of in life, and making the effort to reach that state will be easier. TRP isn't for everyone. If you enjoy McDonald's nore than women that's fine. But don't lie to yourself.

Go lift 4-5x a week, eat the right food, and that's it. You don't need to adopt some kind of gym bro persona by talking about it constantly and posting pics of yourself at the gym.. it's just something you do. 100% necessary if you consistently want to bed women. Only caveat I would add is this sub jerks off stronglifts 5x5 and 'big movements' so much. Yeah they're both good things but if you want to do a bro split and get big joocy arms then do that. Anything is better than nothing and if that's going to motivate you to lift everyday than so be it

[–]nobodyinparticu1ar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck yea. Been lifting for 6 years ish. Basic bro split put on like 35lbs. However, started getting serious a few months ago with diet and ppl, now more of a 5 day split. The gains increase is like I'm a new lifter again. Lifting has helped me with every facet of my life and it's addicting as fuck. Good post.
