2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

why does everyone recommend strength training programs?

Most people who want to put on size won't really benefit from strength-oriented programs.

Look at guys like Jonnie Candito and Greg Nuckols. They are super strong but they still have hardly any muscle and look like shit.

I just feel like a bodybuilding approach with high volume, lots of isolation work, and high frequency would be better.

Instead everyone recommend SS, 531, West side barbell, etc.

If you're interested in striking arts, try boxing, or Muay Thai if you're less interested in mobility, head movement, but more interested in learning elbows, knees, and kicks.

>But grappling?
BJJ schools are the easiest to come by, but wrestling is going to give you the most control on the ground, while also letting you fight to stay standing if you don't want to be taken down.

Catch wrestling is for sick cunts, if you can find a gym for it.

>OFFSEASON LIFTING FOR COMBAT SPORTS
You're going to want to develop explosive ability for high reps, especially in your lower body. Do something like Westside for Skinny Bastards III
https://www.defrancostraining.com/westside-for-skinny-bastards-part3/
That's
MONDAY – Max-Effort Upper Body
TUESDAY – Dynamic-Effort Lower Body
WEDNESDAY – Off
THURSDAY – Repetition Upper Body
FRIDAY – Max-Effort Lower Body
SATURDAY – Off
SUNDAY – Off

Be wary of pseudoscience regarding martial arts (not just trad martial art kata faggotry).
While routines with high-volume pull ups and dips have their uses, even Western boxers are notorious for things like chugging their own piss.

>Weight cutting basics
you should see a professional coach for this.

>About a year ago, I found out I have pretty severe NAFLD

>Quit drinking for a year
>quit non-fruit fructose sources for about 6 months
>eat 500g of spinach/kale per day + broccoli lunch
>NAFLD still there, possibly slightly worse
What the fuck can I do?
Can it be reversed?
Has anyone else had this problem?
If I just cut down to the lowest bf% possible, the fat has to start coming off, right???

Sleep is very important for good health and gains, so let's have a thread about it. How long does it take you to fall asleep, or how long do you give yourself to fall asleep before you give up?
