GAINZZZ: Choose Wisely, For as the True GAINZZZ Can Bring You Extended Life, the False GAINZZZ Will Break Your Spirit

gainzzzknight.jpg
The GAINZZZ Knight

BTW: This is an open thread. I know not everyone cares about the GAINZZZ thread. Feel free to bring up whatever topics you like.

My GAINZZZ from last week experienced, like the GDP under "President" Biden, an Unexpected Downward Revision. I thought they were strong GAINZZZ, but after eating a little bit on Saturday (and probably provoking an insulin response, which then caused me to regain water), my "strong GAINZZZ" completely disappeared -- and then some.

I GAINZZZed four and a half pounds in one day. Obviously, that's gotta be water. But that means my previous week's GAINZZZ were nearly all just... dehydration.

And I've spent the week trying to re-GAINZZZ the GAINZZZ I thought I'd already GAINZZZed.

So today, I can say: I've managed to get to where I already thought I was last Friday.

Any GAINZZZer should know that day-to-day, your biggest changes in weight are just going to be water loss or water gain. Easily one or two pounds of any day's weight fluctuation will just be water.

I'm sure some of you have had that heartbreaker moment when a week's worth of exercise and careful eating results in a weight gain. It's a real spirit-killer. You already want to stop working out and dieting, and then that scale reading gives you just the right reason to do so: If it's not working anyway, why am I busting my back over this?

I've quit fasts before over this.

But it's going to happen. Daily fluctuations in water weight will be five times as high as any loss of fat and twenty times as high as any gain of muscle. So ignore those False GAINZZZ and don't lose confidence when they evaporate.

Since my GAINZZZ are super-lame, please recharge my resolve by telling me about YO' GAINZZZ.

And as always: Tell me about your READZZZ (which are just MIND GAINZZZ) and your PROJECTZZZ (which are just GAINZZZ with a measuring tape and level).

If he hasn't done something really horrible, like murder or child molestation, I'd say getting killed by the cartel is a bit strong. Maybe just hope that he decides to stay in Mexico, so as to commune with those noble Brown people and learn how much better their culture is than ours.

17 I've gained 13 pounds since last year, mostly due to my BP med, as I have been exercising. Not Broscience levels but some.

FML.

I have also had shotgun GAINZ, I'm very happy with my VR-60 and Stevens 320, especially the latter.

Ammo GAINZ also, just added to the pile now, as prices have dropped a bit and if mask mandates fuck us again, I want to have more range food.

Also she makes my dick have GAINZ, at least triple in size by the end of her bikini/underwear show

You need to post that in the F*CKZZZZ thread.

For the first time in 4 months, I managed to lose weight 2 weeks in a row on my OMAD keto diet with working out! Having the same demoralizing yo-yos as you, Ace.

I've been taking creatine and building muscle, and my understanding is that creatine also increases water weight.

24 >>> I found myself out of ketosis. Wasn't carb intake. Any thoughts.

Neoglucogenisis? No eye deer if I spelled it correctly.

Turning protein directly into blood glucose. If you are super low carb and eat excess protein, it can happen.

25 GAINZZZ: still losing steadily, down 1.5 lbs this week

BOOKZZZ: a true crime novel called Bitter Blood. It's not bad, but the author goes wayyy too far into the family history of these people. Like I really don't need to know what year great-grandma met great-grandpa and how many kids they had. It's not relevant to the story at all.

PROJECTZZZ: I have an old bookcase that I am going to paint to better match the decor of my house.

29 I have re-GAINZZZed 20 minutes of Pilates as part of my weekly exercise regimen. I hope that pairing it up with my 45 minutes of elliptical cardio, twice a week, might remove the several pounds of GAINZZZ I've added this summer.

I just hate working out in the summer anymore than what I've defined as my personal minimum.

32 GAINZZZ will only really commence when I get to doubling my vigorous exercise frequency. Swimming twice a week, plus some walking, is laughable. Need to add 2-3 intense aerobic sessions. And resistance work for tone and injury prevention. If f***ing hockey would resume, that would be one intense workout added. Want to get back on the road bike but sort of inertially trapped in doing only workouts that she can do too.

44 My gainzzz have been solid. Been working with dumbells more than the machines for the past month. I do "push/pull" days. Feeling solid doing regular and inclined dumbell presses, and much heavier on the tricep extensions.

On the pull days I have to do hammer curls because my elbow hurts a bit doing regular curls. Gotta figure that out.

Headed to visit family in the beginning of the month, so I'll have a week off with no weights. Then I'll come back tan, rested, and ready for moar gainnzz.

Lozez...Y'know, I've been doing this 0s and 1s thing for all of my nearly 29 years, but on a lark I've been doing coding interviews to see what the job market is like and I am 0 for 7. Not one job--for doing stuff I've done every day for about ever.

It's a weird thing. It's like I don't consider myself to have stage fright--I can stand in front of people and talk--but my fingers stop working, making it challenging to, e.g., play guitar in front of an audience.

49 READZZZ. Some semi-empty calories as a break between ponderous stuff, "Operation Vengeance" about the mission to shoot down Yamamoto in WWII. Author spends half the time retelling the Guadalcanal campaign (it's OK, he does a decent job, and I suppose many will be seeing it for first time), and his recounting of minute aviation details gets annoying (he's a former fighter pilot, so), even for a geek.

P-38s were used because only they had the range (with two drop-tanks) to do the job from Guadalcanal.

This is in accordance with the wise counsel passed down to us:

Please update your usage accordingly.

I like Pavel, but I didn't quite get the gist of his stretching book. It seemed like he was saying it was neurological (or "all in the mind", even) and therefore a good strategy was to threaten to kill someone if he couldn't touch his toes.

I may have gotten that wrong, of course.

89 Well, as I told you all earlier in the week, my GAINNNZZ is that I have finished an official first draft of my new Theda Bara novel! I still need to type things up and invent a perfect tag line, so that's my PLANNZZ for the next few weeks. And then, I'll be sending it out to a few people for comment and feedback.

I'm actually angry at myself, though, because it's been over 20 years since my first book, The Director's Cut, and it frustrates me to think of all the wasted time I spent tossing draft after draft and going through all kinds of plots before settling on this one. I could have had half a dozen books out by now had I been more on the damned ball.

Anyway, after I get comments back, then I'll be giving the thing a final polish and deciding whether to go the Amazon (I know) route, or roll the dice and try to send it to a publisher? I thought I had a publishing connection, but it fell through. I'd be interested to hear from any Morons who've gone the traditional route; do you think I should? What kind of market can there be for a silent film mystery by an unknown writer?

101 Shadout Mapes, thanks. Actually prior to The Great Idiocy, we had been doing 2 mixed weight/high intensity workouts a week at the gym (a class). This was in addition to hockey and swimming, sometimes rollerblading. Have let the gym memberships lapse ever since the shut-downs, haven't really looked into what's going on now. We had some excellent instructors, one was an int'lly known trainer and real expert.

Suppose once the current panic has either turned into Great Idiocy Redux, or has passed, we can look into the gym thing again. Due to the pool, we now belong to the local state U. gym system, but parking is a problem.

Guess it's a good thing going back to work isn't likely to happen anytime soon (oh noes delta variant!!!!). But on the bright side, I'm doing well on the Total Gym and have managed to bring nearly every workout, even the brutal shoulder ones, up a level.

I've been trying to really hit my backlog of unread books, and also catalog them as I read them. That's going fairly well. Some of these books have been sitting around waiting for me to read them for 10 years, so it's nice to finally knock that out.

I am also very close to being halfway done with my current cross stitch project. (And about to start a new one...whoops)

As for any other projects, I need my house to get and stay clean in order to do those. Might have to take off work to make that happen. My husband unfortunately does not care if the house is a mess, so even though I'm the one working full-time, I'm also the one who has to clean. Pisses me off to no end. This place would be fucking spotless if our positions were reversed.

Train four days a week. The first 4 months are volume accumulation, so the days are long.

Same with eating healthy. If I take fish oil or a vitamin, I force myself to eat healthy. When I lapse on the vitamins I tend to nibble on whatever crap.

163 Actually the most difficult thing about rollerblading, if it's a workout as it is for me, is finding a place to do it, and balancing the speed/difficulty/mental torture elements. To me it's just free ice time, a skating workout.

Unlike walking running biking carz etc, the surface matters. Crappy surface = can't work too hard/always at risk of falling. Good surface preferred, but that brings in the speed/difficulty trade-off. Too fast = dangerous and stupid, plus not much of a workout.

Workaround is larger wheels/better bearings for crappy surfaces, but that would mean too much speed/too little effort.

__________

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game

The Left made corporations villains because it was easy and true. Like idiots many of us reflexively defended them because "free market" and we assumed they were on our side with regard to government interference and the like.

Then the Left, the government and corporations all got in bed together - and the rest is unfortunately very predictable.

243 5'-9" 217lbs. 53 years old and still a member of the 300/400/500 club. Haven't done it in 3 years but since I've been beating up my lats and triceps I took a stab at it. 315x5 reps. Lats improved the push off the bottom and tri's on the lockout. Wasn't trying for 5 reps but at 3 I had some left and went for it. Squat was 405 for one rep that wasn't bad but I hate squatting with a bar and stick to machines (Hammer). My deadlift(regular) was 500 even for one rep. My max is 585lbs but last time I did it I was sore for two weeks. Not cool. Wasn't bad though, just grabbed the bar, put pressure til I heard the wheels do their settle and click on the top of the bar and ripped it. My hams and ass are still barking at me (I did this Tuesday) but I walked away without an injury. Swore I'd never do this again because to me its pointless to max out not worth an injury. Curiosity got the better of me after all the lat and tri work I've been doing and what better measurement than to throw 6 wheels on and test your flat bench. Said screw it and went for the other two. Again, I swear I will never try this again.

It was then I was unable to resist the Sirenic calls of the Reese's Peanut Butter cups every day and I went from a 5.7 on my A1c to a 7.4. I've had to leave my credit cards at home in order to overcome this temptation.

The studio we are with has different levels (beginner, 1, 1.5, 2, ect.). Instructors have alternative exercises if you have injuries or if you are just starting to exercise again.

Speaking of GAINZZZ, I haven't been paying attention to the financial shit of late, 'cause of this 'Ronavax crap, but we just had our first trillion dollar reverse repo at the Fed.

In a nutshell. Fed prints a fucking shit ton of money and gives it to banks. Banks have so much fucking money they don't know what to do with, so they have to park it back at the Fed via the Reverse Repo Facility.

If you think that's crazy, it is. But that's where we are in monetary policy now, Crazy Town.

I think that the point is we just found out that the covid test everyone was using has been disallowed because it doesn't distinguish between regular flu and covid, and then suddenly, we're being told there's an identifiable covid "variant."

How do they know? Not to mention it's summertime, and the flu disappears in summer. (*things we used to know before 2020*)

336 I'm doing 15-20 miles, five days a week on my bike. I've got over 340 miles this July. But I can't do a keto diet while riding. Cannot do it. I bonk, badly. So I'm keeping around 2,000 calories a day, which with the mileage on the bike gives me a daily calorie deficit of over 1,000.

The weight loss isn't as fast as keto, but you don't pass out in the middle of Prospect Park.

The "superstonk" people think that the money is being shored up to cover the massive shorting of stocks that the bad guys have been doing. So they see this as a good sign.

Yeah, my money's on it being just the regular stuff with a thick coat of marketing hype. To Big Pharma's credit, they themselves stated that the vaccines were only moderately effective, but but after the powers that be built a cult around first Fauci, then masks, and finally shots, they can't turn back now.

343 The Lambda "variant" (which supposedly was worse than the Delata "variant") was so phony the covidians are hyping the Delta "variant" again.

This covid shitshow will begin to end only when one or more of the public covidians pay for the covid propaganda with their lives.

Until then, it will be muh covid 24/7 to justify tyranny.

Fed continues to print (increase monetary base) at a rate of $120B per month. That's roughly a third of Treasury borrowing. Ergo the printing press is financing about 1/3 of new debt.

Honestly, Tater looks waxen. When Ace first posted that abhorrent photo, I had to look several times. I thought, for some absurd reason, that someone had made a scale wax model of the that wilted potato. He doesn't look quite real... maybe he's an actual, literal creation of Jeff Zucker. His own dishonest little Pinocchio that grows fatter with each lie. Spinocchio.

No, I'm scared of all the wires I need to hook up to do it. Dad has (had RIP) a sound system/stereo hooked up to a box under the tv which is also a splitter to run 3 tvs off the dish dvr. I think the guy that installed it and serviced it gave up after dad and Marc died. Guess my money isn't green.

365 Apparently the Delta variant is so miniscule in its health issues to the population that it requires the full on effort of everyone Dem who ever got elected and every lefty DNC press person at ABC CBS NBC and CNN to cheerlead for it.

This is going to be the undoing of the Dem Party as they crawl further and further out on a limb the thickness of a dime. But they can't stop now, they've thrown all their cards in on using lockdowns to steal elections so no matter how idiotic and immature they look selling "death" from the common cold, they're going to have to go all in.

I hope Merrick Garland has enough shock troops recruited and available to arrest 20-25 states worth of people - otherwise he's going to be made the whipping boy for this debacle - just wait.

372 sock off.

I too take iodine. Actually I just eat a gram or half of konbu each day (japanese seaweed) since salt is not iodized in Japan. I f--ing hate seaweed, so if I eat out I am OK, but when I eat stuff cooked at home I guess I have a problem. So now I have to eat that shit.

A few times over past couple years I would get very tired and my throat would get sore and swollen, but on the outside. That's how I figured it out.

374 I've been losing about a pound a month. every ounce clings to my thighs like Hunter BIden clings to his pipe.

Salty snacks are my downfall, I had to cut them out entirely. I walk 8K steps daily & hit the gym 3x a week. I try to watch where I use my calories (goodbye grilled cheese sandwiches!) and try not to eat after 7 or 8.

I keep reminding myself its a marathon, not a sprint and that I'm a 66 year old woman with hypothyroidism, and it aint easy.

I did try on a dress and it didn't cut off the circulation in my thighs this morning so I guess that's the GAINZZ. Hoping to hit a benchmark in August
