    Why not simply repress your feelings, and bury them so deep inside you that they die, withered away from sunlight?

    Do you mean to tell me that isn't the only way to deal with things?

    There's getting blackout drunk

    I think that comes after repressing feelings, and helps drown them for good measure

    Hold your feelings by the head until the bubbles stop.
    Solid plan.

    Ah yes, the grand British tradition.

    It's the classic stages of grief

    Going vegan
    Buying dumb shit online
    Working longer hours to avoid going home
    Yelling the C word at a bus
    Drinking an inadvisable amount of rum
    Shitposting
    Deciding that enough is enough and getting on with things

    If you can't put the weight down properly it's too much weight for you to lift safely

    ehhhhhhhhhhhh

    there are some dumbbell exercises where once you get up in weight, the safest thing to do is drop them on the ground. something like dumbbell bench press where you use your legs to boost it up into position

    you'll probably be fine not doing those though for general/casual fitness, which is what PF is trying to court

    Right the charitable interpretation is that they think novice people will be more comfortable only working out with other novices

    The other interpretation is that they think novice people will work out less and pay more

    For me I'd just want a gym with good clean equipment and functioning machines. This whole obsession with what other people are doing at the gym is a bit silly.

    Generally The only times I care what other people at the gym are doing are:

    1 they are using the equipment I need to use
    2 they are someone I know and I'm talking to them.
    3 they are using critically bad form that will injure them and not letting them know would be negligent.

    I really like Planet Fitness! $10 a month, can't beat it. DRX and I go three nights a week. I always use the treadmill and sometimes some of the weights and machines. It's never too busy when we go, which is usually like 8pm. No one bothers me, in my experience everyone just does their own thing and then leaves. Perfect situation, really.

    olympic lifts are usualyl pretty loud and putting the weight down properly involves letting it drop

    and soemtimes it'd better to let it drop then risk injury

    Fucking hell, scrolling train message thing

    Stop telling me whether smoking is allowed on this train like it wasn't banned a decade ago and just show a list of upcoming stations

    Oh, I shouldn't leave my stuff on the train? Well golly gee, thanks - here was me thinking that leaving a coat was a way to appease the household gods

    The fact that I RDL 365 pounds because I can't just let it go at the top of my deadlift, like you're absolutely supposed to, is a personal risk I take in order to be courteous to the people around me. If I was doing proper deadlifts I would get to the top flex relax and then let go of the weight.

    I imagine nonstop messages about smoking being banned in places, despite have been banned for decades, are still given because some smokers don't give a fuck and will continue trying to smoke in the neonatal intensive care unit if not told no at regular intervals

    When I had a gym buddy and actual schedule to go to PF for gym time for about a year, I never once heard the lunk alarm. It's all local culture and how that one is run, really. If you drop your weights once its an accident, it's basically a 'no jerks' generic rule. If you are disturbing other guests you really don't belong in the establishment.

    Been playing Bloodstained, and there are some weapons that you can perform fighting game-ish inputs to do special moves with. I have never played a fighting game other than smash and I cannot consistently do a quarter-circle+x to save my life. It's actually kinda bumming me out, I'll just stand in a cleared out room and try it a few times and sometimes I can't pull it off even then, and there's just no feedback for what you're doing wrong.
