I'm 23 years old, and have been practicing various martial arts since I was 14 starting with taekwondo. Currently practicing muay thai as a hobby with little to no intention of competing as it is too intense for me. I have experienced training judo in the past, when I was in college. I trained twice a week for about a month and I really enjoyed it. I had to give it up for personal reasons, but now I think I wanna give it another shot. My plan is to train solely for self defense and fitness, and maybe to compete maybe once a year. But I've seen so much posts about how judo can take a toll on your body, or that how judo gave them a torn ACL, dislocated shoulder, etc. This has held me back from trying to join a trial class as I am afraid of getting these serious injuries that may affect my career. I have been injured before. Taekwondo gave me a broken toe, as well as a grade 2 sprain. Muay Thai also gave me a midfoot sprain. But the horror stories I've read from judo guys are way worse. I love martial arts, and I'd love to learn judo. But I'm now having second thoughts about doing it. TLDR: scary major injury stories of judo guys have scared me from giving it another try.
I have hurt my left arm, thinking i have tendonitis around my elbow. Ive waited a few days for it to get better but it seems to be slow healing. I do not want to completelt stop working out. I am currently running a 3 day a week full body variation of 531. Would it be ok to instead of do upper body just do heavy legs 3 (squats and deadlifts with accessory) times a week. Or is that too much leg work.
These can be in real life *or* online. I played MMORPGs for years and always loved the community of getting together with a group of people and just chilling while playing games. But I'm finding it hard to have that same kind of experience now that I and my friends have all gotten older and stopped playing those games. We haven't stopped *gaming* per se, but we're not all playing the same game anymore. At this point, I'm looking to find a new community activity whether that's in real life or online. I just want that sense of belonging again. I feel like the obligatory real life community activity is adult sports. While I'm interested in fitness, I'm more interested in an activity that lets us talk more (kind of like grinding on an MMORPG) and doesn't require going out for a drink just to spend more time together after the activity is over. Anyone have any ideas?
It was December 2018, I was fresh out of college and didn’t exactly look my best. I had been a chubby kid all my life but never quite got down to understanding why. My eating habits were like everyone else’s around me, I had a normal life and was busy studying books and working on computers to ‘get ahead’ in life. While I’d done fairly well for myself, I ended up sacrificing several aspects of my life during my technical pursuits, especially fitness and healthy living. Being an aggressive and determined individual by nature, I decided to make a change which was long due. After 7 months of consistent: Clean Nutrition and Calorie Counting High Volume, Intense Lifting Routines Cardio and Callisthenics Circuits Ungodly amounts of YouTube videos, self doubt, sweat and tears I brought about an incredible change in my life. Standing at 6'1, I went from being fat and overweight at 235lbs to being lean and ripped at 176lbs with 12% bodyfat. I’m the fittest I’ve ever been, and no words can really describe the way I feel when I look at myself in the mirror — It’s beyond exhilarating and although my account may seem new ive really taken inspiration from all of you. Thank You All for providing those inspirational stories and its because of all you my life has changed for the better.
Hello Reddit, I'm just looking for some cool females that want to be friends. We can talk about anything you'd like, I have an open mind and don't really judge people for anything as we're all just humans. I'm interested in a huge variety of things including philosophy, psychology, fitness/sports, and all forms of art, especially music. There aren't too many things I can't appreciate honestly, and I love hearing people talk about things they're passionate about. If you need advice, or just someone to talk to about anything, message me and hopefully we'll connect.
**TL; DR:** long as fuck post Hello, I’m looking to meet people with lots of free time who game on PC. I’m more interested in meeting people I get along with who want to make an attempt at being friends than meeting people to play any one specific game. I’d like to meet someone I can try lots of stuff with, and just talk on Discord with on a daily basis. I only work part time and pretty much live on my PC when I’m not doing that so I have plenty of time to get to know whoever adds me lol. I’m 24 years old, male, and live in the southeastern United States. I dropped out of college to pursue my own stuff and am years into it, I speak really politically incorrect, and my sleep schedule is fucked up year-round. I'm pretty immature for my age as well. Sometimes I’m a pretty optimistic guy, sometimes I’m a depressed loser, it just kind of depends on what’s going on in my life at the time. I have some really high highs in my life as well as some really low lows, but I try not to let it affect anyone besides myself. If you don't have a lot of free time or don't want to put in a lot of effort into starting a friendship, don't bother adding me. I’ll put some stuff I like down below along with a Discord tag at the bottom. **Likes** - Underground/Cloud Music (Bladee, Bones, $uicideboy$, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, ITSOKTOCRY, Ghostemane, Convolk, lots of lesser-known artists) - Computer Hardware – I like talking about GPU’s, CPU’s, AIO’s, HDD’s, and so on, I spend pretty much all of my money that isn’t for cost of living on this stuff. - World of Warcraft - 2x Rank 1, 1x Cutting Edge, but I’m not playing much WoW atm. Idk what I'm doing about classic WoW yet. - FPS Games - Just starting playing Overwatch a few days ago, but generally I play a lot of these. Looking forward to Halo's MCC's PC port in the fall. - Story Rich games like Mass Effect 1-3 (not Andromeda lmao) - Anime - Naruto, Eureka Seven, Death Note, Berserk, Welcome to the NHK, Samurai X, Samurai Champloo, and a lot of other older stuff. - Torrenting / File Sharing - I'm getting into some shitty private trackers & learning/working on getting into some better ones and would love to meet anyone in the know/interested in these types of things. I have about 40TB in storage at the moment. I like collecting stuff relevant to me like my favorite shows, movies, anime, music, and games. - Audio - I have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro's & paired them with a Schiit Magni 3 & Schiit Modi 3. I jumped up to these from a trashcan gamer headset. - 4chan/8chan - Twitch - YouTube Content Creation - Video / Image Production - Physical fitness? Maybe? I go to the gym at like 2 in the morning when no one's there. - I also have minor interests in space, history, and animals in general. **Discord: Derek#3685** If this post is still here, add me.
Hello Garmin crew! My main physical activity is weightlifting / calisthenics for Spartan races and tennis & basketball for cardio, and I'm looking for my first fitness wearable to get some actionable fitness data. It seems like Garmin has way better stats than the Fitbit options, but I was wondering how useful those stats have been for you all, specifically: 1. Body Battery 2. Stress Tracker 3. Rep tracker 4. Activity tracker (for weightlifting) Finally: 5. How bad is the sleep tracking for Garmin? Is it still usable? 6. Are there any watches that you think would be usable for tennis / basketball? Any answers at all would be greatly appreciated :) Cheers!
