How are your deadlifts so abysmal?
You should be doing more than bench easy anyways.

I lift weights for a bit but ran out of money and methods to reach a gym.

I stopped at around 215lb squat, 105lb bench, 195lb deadlift, and 85 or 90lb ohp. I used the 2.5lb weights for that one.

Even then, how much do you weight? Strange how your bench is so high and squat so low.
I don't do much weightlifting anymore, just a small set at home that I use for basic stuff to help body-weight exercises. I'm sure my cardio is ass though. I'd probably die if I tried to run a marathon.

I think I'm decently fit though. Above average in the US anyways.

/fit/ autistic weeaboo here. The way to getting fit is moderation - you can't jump from fat neckbeard or Auschwitz mode skeleton to a Arnold Schwarzenegger physique overnight. Start by taking smaller steps, and gradually increase them slowly over time. Motivation keeps you going - if you force yourself to do impossible tasks, you will quickly lose that motivation.

Start with 5 minutes today. Next week, make it 8 minutes. The week after that, 12 minutes. See how you go.

Remember, keeping fit shouldn't impact on your ability to enjoy your hobbies as well. You can enjoy doing what you like to do alongside getting fit, be it playing eroge or capturing spellcards. You'll feel much better health-wise, and it will give you a psychological boost as well. You'll have a better view on life, given that you are less prone to waking up every morning feeling like shit.

I used to be Auschwitz mode as fuck. I started doing compound lifts, mainly squats, deadlifts, bench press and overhead press, initially with very light weights, and I gradually increased the amount I lifted. I didn't rush, I just went my own pace. Now, I can deadlift 1.5x body weight. I went from 54kg (January 2011) to 69kg (now), and I don't intend on stopping until I reach my natty limit (fuck roids, I ain't touching that shit), which I guess should be around 90kg.

After getting fitter than before, I haven't noticed anything like the "you lose time playing touhou if you try to get fit" like all the excuses I always hear from other people. I'm still doing the exact same hobbies I've had before, and I've barely changed, apart from feeling much better of myself healthwise. Right now I'm trying to 1CC UFO on hard, but I always keep getting raped by Murasa.

Good luck, and don't forget your anki reps and touhou practice as well.

You're looking at a change in diet then.

Try really high fat, low carb (basically paleo), or really high carb, low fat, (Basically vegan).

Unless your finding the worst things you could possibly eat on those two diets, and you're not being a retard, then you're sure to lose a shitload of weight and have very little body-fat.

how can you handle being drunk all the time? whenever i drink something terrible happens to me, and I always get sick like 3 days after from some latent flu or something.

You don't stop drinking. That way you won't remember anything terrible that happened to you nor you will get sick.

Back when I was a functional member of society I reached a 3 plate bench press and a 4 plate squat, both of which being a single rep.

Today I might be able to bench 225 once, and squat 315 once. Maybe.

I'm 185 cm, 85 kg, about the same size I was while I was a functional member of society serving in the military but today I'm a bit less muscular and a bit more squishy.

Military? If it doesn't bother you, would you mind sharing:
1. Which country?
2. What was it like? Did you enjoy it?
3. Were the people "nutjobs" like they say they are? Did you come across any mentally unstable people?

It's pretty easy to prevent hangovers and once you've been drinking for a while it becomes insanely easy to fake sobriety until you're too fucked up to be doing whatever you need to do.

Also drunk workouts are a blast.

(1) It was the United States Air Force, so it was like the real military with half the calories. Military Lite. (2) I enjoyed a lot of it -- most of the people were pretty cool, and my job was to keep communications alive. It was mostly setting up telephony and network infrastructure. Anybody could do it, really. (3) The people I worked with were mostly pretty sane.

I am not ZUN!bar because I believe shitposting is an endeavor best done anonymously.

well, since there's no tv, no computers, no internet, and hell no electricity in gensokyo, with it being stuck in a feudal japan period, staying at home would suck, especially if i were the little youkai girl.

i guess i'd either go out to other little girls while avoiding actual villager humans, or go create some mischief to summon reimu squad.

That's what you think.

>> No.9166613

For me, I do not think it would suck to be living in a time with no electronics. If I were NEET I could just relax all day, maybe on the shore of some river or near some swimming hole. I would sleep a lot and probably end up cultivating some kind of mental illness, but I think it would be worth it.

>> No.9166616

Alright, so there's electricity. Where's the internet connection? The HDTV signal for Tokyo MX and TBS? The toilet paper manufacturing factory?

>> No.9166638

thunders are electricity too, but that doesn't mean cavemen could watch shit on their new hdtv or listen to their favorite music cds, or even shitpost on /jp/.

if you're in gensokyo, unless you hang around in eientei you probably don't have access to any technology at all, so hope you enjoy generic villager life.

>> No.9166702

what about the kappas and their technology? don't forget Sanae came from the outside world and may have brought in a mobile phone or something.

>> No.9166715

a mobile phone without reception signal's not much better than a digital clock.

you can't use the internet, and it doesn't have enough power to do anything but write short smses and play snake.

also dunno about kappas, did they say what kind of technology it is? is it something modern and electronics or something more like 18 century "technology", more fitting with the whole feudal period?

>> No.9166797

sa. shiranai yo. if only there was more canon material written about the kappas, because otherwise it's just fanon speculation.

>> No.9166806

a thought though - can mobile signal pass the borders separating gensokyo from the outside world? it blocks physical things, of course, but what about other things? gensokyo is supposed to be located in Japan, after all, only magically separated. I suppose you'd get NTT DoCoMo and Softbank cellular coverage in gensokyo if the border worked that way.

>> No.9166849

without a tower somewhere in the center you probably couldn't get any decent reception anywhere but maybe on the edges. gensokyo's probably too big to get reception all over the place from surrounding towers, if there are any.

i also thought gensokyo's located in a remote area of japan, with little to no houses or villages, so they wouldn't have good reception there in the first place.

i doubt they'd have it located in the center of a big city, walled off with an invisible barrier saying "gensokyo past this point."
