    I hate running but ... pointless?

    how can something that makes you wish you and everyone you love was dead be pointless?

    edit - oh I also hate pushups

    There are certain segments of the internet who believe that all bodyweight exercise (besides pullups and dips, praise be unto them) are worthless, and that cardio kills gains.

    It depends on the reasons you work out.

    Do you want to look swole and impress the ladies at the beach?

    Or do you want to be healthy and not have a heart attack at 30?

    There's also a subset of long distance runners that avoid core workouts and upper body strength because they think leaner means better but completely ignore that some of speed, stability, and endurance in running comes from your upper body. I'm not saying they need to bench 400 lbs, but a strong upper body is helpful for running too.

    Just like there's a bunch of meatheads that avoid leg workouts because chicks don't notice those and then they look like a life sized rooster on their chicken legs.

    re: upper body for long distance goal is to be lean re body fat but not put on a lot of muscle weight either because lighter = faster obvs (although muscle is still good, just better where you use it more, aka your legs and your tight lil butt)

    but beasto would know better than i

    Yeah you'll be focusing on arm and shoulder workouts I think.

    It's weird how running works. Arms are good for balance and rhythm, shoulders and chest improve breathing and your abs and back help balance you.

    It's sort of like your upper body is a gyroscope for your lower body. Lower body needs a lot of power, but you need to balance and offset that power so you don't wobble over.

    I've only really noticed the rail thin people on the long distance running like marathons. XCountry and sprinting/olympics tends to have people who are a lot more massively built on the upper body. They're definitely lean still, but they're ripped like a fucking super hero.

    follow up from beast on sprinting v long distance running body types:

    "You are wasting tons of energy if doing this over a long distance, but it is very helpful in the short term"

    Just load up at burger king, cheap energy , stop during your run even and offload that massive dump

    also re this point but from me

    Long Distance running is a delicate balancing act between fuel (calories/energy), hardware (muscle/joints/tendons/bones), and fucking tummies and butts

    You can eat BK during the run sure, and you may even be able to stop and take that hella dump

    but it will not feel great taking the trip from tummy to butt i tell u wat

    Yeah I was mostly joking.

    When I was running in high school those shits...

    Oh my god.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    Activision Publishing, Inc. and Bungie, together with energy drink category leader Red Bull today announced a partnership that will bring an epic new quest to players of the popular sci-fi action adventure game franchise Destiny via custom-designed Red Bull® Energy Drink cans, inviting consumers across the United States and Canada to Become Legend, making this the first time a video-game, or any third party brand, has ever appeared on the iconic Red Bull can.

    D:
    "This partnership brings two brands synonymous with adventure together to offer Destiny players a unique opportunity to further advance their Guardians in the Destiny universe," said Tim Ellis, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Activision. "Whether a player is new to Destiny or with us since launch, the special quest promotion will help give them the ‘wings' and experience boost to take on The Taken King."

    D:
    The limited edition Destiny can will also feature Red Bull athlete, member of professional eSports organization OpTic Gaming, and Destiny super-fan Michael "Flamesword" Chaves. Chaves will offer his expertise and experience as an eSports athlete and coach to help guide players through the quest.

    D:
    "I'm really excited to be a part of this partnership," said Michael "Flamesword" Chaves, Red Bull eSport athlete. "I love that Red Bull and Destiny have a shared sense of adventure, camaraderie, and pushing boundaries that both brands embody. As a former Coach of OpTic Gaming and Team Captain of my current squad, I'm always looking to help others be at their best. I am very much looking forward to coaching the Destiny community through the quest and help everyone Become Legend!"

    And really, it's not even "Batman should kill the Joker"

    It's: Batman should stop being Batman. The police will eventually wind up shooting the Joker because that's what happens to extremely dangerous criminals who won't stop committing crimes and cannot be safely arrested. Net gain to society as the rogues gallery eventually dies out instead of being perpetually recycled.

    :-p

    Also somehow, despite my apparent extreme bloodlust, I consume less violent media than most of you lot. With your Breaking Bads and your Games with Thrones.

    That shit be violent yo, I can't even watch it.

    I think the Joker is immortal in recent comics, or something.

    Immortality just gives you even more options for dealing with assholes without violating the no-kill code.

    i tried to run 2 weekends ago in oppressive humidity and also debilitating first-period-day cramps (yeah period talk deal with it) and it was like, nope, nuh uh, nope, this isnt working and had to walk for most of it

    @Evil Multifarious I have been lusting after a Martin & Co. for many moons now and your acquisition awakened old hungers (altho I was slightly more partial to the sound of the spruce top over the mahogany, in spite of the latter's loveliness).

    And I impulse bought yet another hundred dollar electric (since none of my guitars are with me) and have decided to set a goal in Rocksmith hours with a very expensive reward.

    So thanks for that.

    Glucosamine pills aren't cutting it.

    Maybe I am just an old, :'(

    i dunno man im not old enough yet for dis

    is it in your knees or are you talking about all joints

    cause it might be tendon issue

    oh god this made a snot bullet come out of my nose from the loud snort

    I guess my eyes sort of half-read this post because I read it as "I'm starting to think going in blind was the right call".

    The absence of those two letters changes everything.

    I hate running but ... pointless?

    how can something that makes you wish you and everyone you love was dead be pointless?

    edit - oh I also hate pushups

    There are certain segments of the internet who believe that all bodyweight exercise (besides pullups and dips, praise be unto them) are worthless, and that cardio kills gains.

    It depends on the reasons you work out.

    Do you want to look swole and impress the ladies at the beach?

    Or do you want to be healthy and not have a heart attack at 30?

    There's also a subset of long distance runners that avoid core workouts and upper body strength because they think leaner means better but completely ignore that some of speed, stability, and endurance in running comes from your upper body. I'm not saying they need to bench 400 lbs, but a strong upper body is helpful for running too.

    Just like there's a bunch of meatheads that avoid leg workouts because chicks don't notice those and then they look like a life sized rooster on their chicken legs.

    re: upper body for long distance goal is to be lean re body fat but not put on a lot of muscle weight either because lighter = faster obvs (although muscle is still good, just better where you use it more, aka your legs and your tight lil butt)

    but beasto would know better than i

    Yeah you'll be focusing on arm and shoulder workouts I think.

    It's weird how running works. Arms are good for balance and rhythm, shoulders and chest improve breathing and your abs and back help balance you.

    It's sort of like your upper body is a gyroscope for your lower body. Lower body needs a lot of power, but you need to balance and offset that power so you don't wobble over.

    I've only really noticed the rail thin people on the long distance running like marathons. XCountry and sprinting/olympics tends to have people who are a lot more massively built on the upper body. They're definitely lean still, but they're ripped like a fucking super hero.

    follow up from beast on sprinting v long distance running body types:

    "You are wasting tons of energy if doing this over a long distance, but it is very helpful in the short term"

    Just load up at burger king, cheap energy , stop during your run even and offload that massive dump

    also re this point but from me

    Long Distance running is a delicate balancing act between fuel (calories/energy), hardware (muscle/joints/tendons/bones), and fucking tummies and butts

    You can eat BK during the run sure, and you may even be able to stop and take that hella dump

    but it will not feel great taking the trip from tummy to butt i tell u wat

    I can understand the fucking butts but...how would you fuck a tummy? In the belly button or something? :P

    where there's a will etc

    Yeah I was mostly joking.

    When I was running in high school those shits...

    Oh my god.

    i tried to run 2 weekends ago in oppressive humidity and also debilitating first-period-day cramps (yeah period talk deal with it) and it was like, nope, nuh uh, nope, this isnt working and had to walk for most of it

    Gut pain is the worst

    I have learned to run through a lot of pains but I can't push through gut pain
    my butt pain was pretty bad at javelina but it wasn't gut, it was just turtle head for like 5 miles

    I heard something about fucking butts?

    p.s. Mid-marathon orange slices were the best taste I have ever tasted.

    I think my body was convinced it was dying, so it was desperate to reinforce the propriety of eating sugar and drinking water.
