XD

I have never even considered a bucket of soup when running. Fluid mechanics imply it would be inefficient? What do I know though!

Can someone help me with getting a weightlifting routine going? Everything on the internet is like "you must back squat" but 1) i don't want to get squashed if my knee gives up(i hurt it a few years back and never got it fixed) and 2) my goal isn't to be a powerlifter..just to look nice and loss lots of fat.

I seem to be an anomaly. When sick, I eat more to keep healthy rather than less an most people do. I went from ~121 lbs to ~124 lbs with the cold I have currently which is almost comical! I may try to keep these eating habits as I get back to being healthy because it seems more than one meal a day is a good thing :P

I mean, I am expelling blood with my mucus atm, but I'll take the good with the bad XD

You might check out Athlean X on youtube

I have combined a bunch of his exercises to sort of make my own 3/4 days splits depending on how much time I have during the week. I like that he has a lot of 'non-routine' exercises that still give a nice burn.

If you want to burn some fat, try doing 5-10 minutes of HIIT after youre done lifting (I'm weak so go with 30/30 splits). I like the rowing machine because its full body, but elliptical, or just going outside and running like a lunatic works as well. Not a big bike fan for HIIT.

Listen to shafted he gives good advice (although I haven't looked at that specific set of lifts).

One other thing u can do if you're concerned about your knees is do leg press instead of back squat and keep the weight relatively low.

Also make sure you warm up your hamstrings and keep things like your hamstrings and hip tendons loose, since all of that will help stabilize your knee

So I sprained my ankle two weekends ago and proceeded to play over 100 minutes of rugby on it this weekend. My team mate even rolled over it at one point and I'm mostly stunned I still have ligaments there tbh.

Investing $15 in a foam roller and doing a minute, minute and a half of it on your quads often (but especially before/after working out) would be a solid idea. They have them at my uni’s gym, too. Form is pretty much just get into a push-up/plank position and roll your body forwards and backwards so that the roller is under your quads.

Pretty sure that piece of styrofoam is the main thing keeping my left knee from being really bad. At 19. From curling.
Back to school, back to indefinite semi-V/LA. I should still be reachable through normal means though.

Okay, so Toronto Meet was a while ago now and I feel like it's time I shamed myself insetad of being proud. It was 4 days of meet and I had 3 meals in total. When I got home I was back down around 119lbs which is juuuuust above the "underweight" mark for me. I decided then that enough is enough and I have to fucking do something about it! So i started eating at work, like other than just chips. I've made some meals at home and not let them go bad. I've had meal replacement bard when I miss out on a meal for a day. I can't say I'm eating 3 square meals, but I'm eating.

Today I weighed in at 126, the most I've seen in a long time. And I felt good about it! So I'm going to keep this up and once I get to a better weight and a more solid eating routine, try lifting weights again. I decided a while ago that it was counterproductive if I wasn't eating and so I stopped. Once I'm in a good place, I'll restart. Probably for the new year tbh. I mean, it took a month and a half to get this far! But it's progress and I feel good :)
