Yeah, it really put a much more real world perspective on what women deal with daily when I started training them. I remember feeling like shit when I got a phone call from a client who said "I can't train at that gym alone anymore, it's just too much to be at the rack by myself with that many guys around."

I mean, for all the work some of these guys put into their bodies to attract women, they forget to treat them like human beings. I hear that's a good quality. Chicks dig respect, yo. Wasn't that a song or something?

Sounds like you have a good plan :)

Try taking a foam roller to your quads, hams, and hip flexors the day of and after squats. It'll hurt like hell, but you'll get over the DOMS real quick. Look up "the stick" on amazon and if you have a friend you can borrow, have them hit your hams for you to reach that next level of suckage/fixage.

Same equipment. Weight area isn't that big. While he's benching I can do squats, rows, etc.

That's exactly how mine went Day 3/4 was hilariously bad. Since then I've been okay. Just been trying to add a little more weight to what I do each time. Squats have been weightless so far though.

I kind of enjoy the pain and it's a good way to motivate me to not take a break from squats

Haha, well enjoy!

From an injury prevention stand point, I'd at least make sure to foam roll your lower back and spend some times in that deep squat position to keep movement in your soft tissue. That way, when you hit the bar, you're not so tense.

I.E. It's easier to warm up from no pain to goal than from god damnit this hurts to it still hurts holy shit how am I going to do this.

Too much time and effort? Doing the proper exercise wields results pretty quickly and helps you feel better and more energized. That's why people get addicted.

I manage to get by with a bench and a treadmill. I've only just started squats, so the weight is so light I can just lift the bar from the bench up to my chest in one quick motion, then up over my head. Same for military presses.

I was surprised too. My Osteopath asked me to start doing weights because I needed to strengthen my back muscles. I come back a week later and she can see a noticeable difference, and my neck pain had disappeared completely.

Studies indicate that women tend to choose more muscular men for short term relationships and prefer less muscular men for long term relationships. So the ideal body type is going to depend on context.

Pro body builders are going way too far these days. Arnold in his prime would look puny next to some of those guys. Any preference for that qualifies as a weird fetish.

My advice woulod be to avoid situps all together. Try something like planks which aren't as bad for your back.

I'll check out anyone who's attractive, anywhere, anytime, as long as I'm not all up in my head thinking about stuff and things. Which is a lot of the time, actually.

You can always try group exercise if you can't find anyone. I do the Les Mills programs which I believe are fairly popular in Australia (started in NZ), and the classes are always 99% women.

There's a very obvious answer to that: because NeoGAF is predominantly male and straight.

Anyways, your scenario did happen before. Shanadeus spammed a big butt thread with pictures of males with big butts to make a statement. This was heavily frowned upon by many, including myself (although I was not a member at the time).

So because NeoGAF is male and straight, the minor groups should shut up and deal with intrusion into basically thread to try and heteronormatise it?

I think I can't express my proper thoughts on that reply without getting banned for causing offense.

Exactly, deal with it.

Not really - I apologize that the thread was hijacked. I guess that the topic title was sort of all-inclusive, and both gay people and straight people were to discuss. When people started posting pictures of hot guys, at some point others started posting girls along the same lines of the guys posted (fit). I can't really change it, though. I've personally posted no pictures, and I have no power here. Sorry.

She's likely to be alone, and exercising puts her in a somewhat exposed position. I don't want people to watch me exercise, especially not in a sexual manner. If you want to ogle ladies go google some porn. Its not that hard.

So you're accusing me of being an ogler because I expressed my desires to have sex with a random beautiful woman on the internet.. I mean really? Are you new to this whole internet thing or something? And who the hell says they want to bust a nut in someone while they're out and about doing their daily business? Who does that? Has this happened to you or something? I doubt it. Do you assume that I would say this to a woman in real life because I said it on a forum abut a random beautiful woman anonymously? Again, did you just start visiting internet forums?

And your fear of the gym seems pretty irrational to me. I've gone to numerous gyms in my life and I've seen plenty of women doing their business there just fine with no problems. Now that's not to say there aren't creepy motherfuckers here and there, but I seriously doubt it's some huge epidemic. And I can promise you more men are ogling you at the beach, poolside, and while you jog than at the gym. Guaran-damn-tee it. If you fear being looked at that much you shouldn't even leave the house.

And what's your problem with men checking girls out anyway?? Why is everything "ogling" to you? You really expect men to spot a beautiful girl and not have sexual desires? That's biology my friend. I agree there are bounds of reason when it comes to how much you stare and gaze, but you seem put off by the mere notion of a guy taking a peak at any girl in any situation and will automatically deem it "ogling". Which is pretty ridiculous.

Pretty much became a post your ideal body type for a mate thread. The question was a simple one that required no pics at all. When people(men and women) started posting pics of what they find ideal it became off topic. So why are you singling out men?

1: Why do these guys go so overboard with the muscles? Yeah it may be a sport for them, but in the end what they really want is to impress ladies, amirite?

2: What is the ideal build for a man? At what point do the muscles become too much? Perhaps it is not as cut and dry as it is with male preference of female bodies.

Are these questions really aimed at finding out what men find attractive in women? Maybe you should reread them. Why would we need a new thread for that, 60% of the threads on GAF are about it.

Sorry for participating. I'm sure I've offended everyone in this thread by sharing my own view of what I find an ideal physique. I'm sure it added nothing to the discussion. What I have done is terrible and demeaned the entire discussion. Please allow me to remove myself from this and other threads like this.

"Perhaps it is not as cut and dry as it is with male preference of female bodies."

This is an assumption begging to be corrected. Perhaps with pictures.

Still, don't let me get in the way of the ever-present 'gender & sexuality issues' boner on here.
