Is this /fit - The book?
Is this /fit - The book?
not gay enough
implying anyone on /fit/ has read war and peace
the art of war
implying anyone on /fit/ has read les miserables
implying anyone on /fit/ finished moby dick outside a college course
the memetations by memus aurelius
thus spoke zarathustra when they don't understand nietzsche whatsoever
don quixote when they don't know anything about the tales of chivalry it parodies
implying anyone on /fit/ even knows who Antigone is
implying anyone on /fit/ will ever read victorian literature
high school reading
yep that's a /fit/ list
Why is this book so goddamn expensive? The only place I can find it is Amazon and it goes for $50 used.
I mean then we have this list
no starting strength
Because everyone already has SS if you’re on /fit/, we talk about it everyday
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
one of my friends did SS for 3 years
he can squat 340kg
his bench stalled at 155kg
It’s way too small to be $50
Fitty goddamn dollars. Where'd you get your copy?
College library, have to return it in a month
going to workout soon
all of you crying about price of sun and steel
its on libgen
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 bought it years ago for a dollar on thriftbooks. i cant believe meming an out of print book does this.
Just checked my college library. They got a copy. Unfortunately, this it's finals week and I won't be able to check it out until next quarter.
this is the power of memes
I love this phrase
tfw too dumb to understand Mishima's flowery language
I'm like three pages in and I'm already confused.
Read an analysis of it
I feel like that's just admitting defeat.
ywn again read for the first time the chapter where Sancho shits next to Don Quijote in the darkness
feels bad man
wrong thread, still this will remain here because deleting comments is kind of pain in the ass in Veeky Forums
Well you can grind the gears harder and take notes
it's not in print.
I’ve been thinking of trying to read Mishima for the first time. Would this be the best book to start with?
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.
Would this be the best book to start with?
No no no no. Start with Confessions of a Mask first. Then you should try reading Sun & Steel.
My lifts are as weak as my brain is dumb.
I only just this week was able to squat my body weight for reps.
Learn French, save money.
We all start somewhere
Liking books doesn’t make you better than guys who like going to the gym instead.
It actually does. Ask me how I know your a pleb
I’ve probably read most of what Nietzsche ever wrote.
not being 250 iq and also lifting
theres no shame in being weak, only shame in staying weak
What’s my “a pleb”?
