I just want to say, it's nice you guys didn't commit account-suicide

I have mostly abstained from getting into and commenting about the drama and incidents that have plagued the video game forum community at large in the last week but I'd be lying if I said it hasn't influenced my forum behavior.

I feel like I don't want to post any more, neither here nor there (I mean the two forums, not this thread).

If everyone here moved to the new forum, I'd strongly consider moving there though,

Being honest, outside of this community, I don't remember ever feeling understood or that other people had any kind of empathy for me personally so I am not really itching to get an account over there, it's exactly the same people and over time it will face the same challenges and.. well, yeah...I don't buy the "OMG, this is so much better than the old forum!" thing just yet, I'll give it a year and see how they handle controversial topics and see how they deal with them.

for all the shit Neogaf has gotten into in the last days, mods tried their best to keep controversial topics on and off-topic civil over the years, specially after Trump won and I am not sure it worked out, it's nigh impossible to have civil discussion in a lot of matters, religions, gender, politics.

I want the new place to get through that and see how that goes.

anyway sorry for the offtopic-ness just wanted to speak out.

My main appeal to the new forum is that it, for one reason or another, has brought many of the FitGAF members back together. I'll follow the FitGAF pack since my interest in gaming has decreased substantially. Lots of people over there so feel free to come join us!

Edit: I should also add that I did not abandon ship. I'm still a GAF member and don't plan on going anywhere unless this thread dies.

Is there a fitness thread there? I haven't found anything fitness related there, probably because I am a lurker. dunno

Same. Looks like I can't even sign up there. The email I used for gaf I no longer have access to.

280x8 on deadlift tonight, and started up again with incline bench and dumbbell presses. Slowly working my way back into a routine.

On the registration when it asks for your old GAF profile just include a link to your profile page and this should speed things up.

Is there a consensus of at what age it is OK for kids to start doing some weight lifting (if at all)?

I've seen gym bros take their young children to the gym on weekends. As long as its supervised. The weights are light (you know they're gonna try and swing a fucking 20kg dumbbell curl to tell their friends)
Rest more than you would as an adult

I can't see anything online discouraging it. If it worries you consult a doctor.

Finally reached the "theoric" 1000lbs club this saturday.

My theoric maxes are now:

Squat: 338lbs
Bench: 245lbs
Deadlift: 417lbs
Total: 1000lbs

Overhead: 159lbs

The heaviest lifts I have actually done:

Squat: 323.5lbs (-15lbs)
Bench: 234.5lbs (-10lbs)
Deadlift: 366lbs (-50lbs)
Total: 924.5

Overhead: 153lbs (-6lbs)

I get pretty exhausted on deadlift by the time I get to the heavy weights, but I'm pretty sure 400 would go up decently easily on a sumo lift if I go at it fresh.

Anyone here consider doing rucking before? I am going to be starting school soon so I will be taking public transportation while carrying a backpack around 10 pounds.

Gaming laptop+ Charger +water bottle+ notebooks,pencils and etc... so estimating about 10 pounds that is going to be carried by a 155 pound man.

I heard there are benefits to doing rucking and I will be carrying a 10 pound backpack and walking at least 3 miles a day.
