that meme died some time ago, and nobody ever really did the actual SS program, just meme versions of it from the internet

It’s called starting strength because it gives you strength and teaches form
You’re supposed to do it for how long it tells you then switch to another routine

Its basically a suicide note. He frankly states that you have to die before age takes away your beauty. This is why when people /pol/post about him wanting a fascist state I always roll my eyes, he was seeking a justified, aesthetic death.

/fit/lit/ exists, and the books you are listing were required reading for me in college, as for most of us here, and outside college they are meme tier name drops. Not impressed, and Im betting your OHP is pretty weak too.

I’ve been thinking of trying to read Mishima for the first time. Would this be the best book to start with?

@Stupidasole
Liking books doesn’t make you better than guys who like going to the gym instead. In terms of translation to real world usefulness physical strength is probably more valuable than knowing who Antigone is, and it’s not like you have to pick one or the other anyway. On that note I’m not sure how you could read the Greeks and not want to be physically fit. I’m probably in the gym 4-6 days a week, Moby Dick is my favorite book that I’ve read for non-scholastic reasons, and at this point I’ve probably read most of what Nietzsche ever wrote. You should try achieving in more areas.

No no no no. Start with Confessions of a Mask first. Then you should try reading Sun & Steel.
