    Has anybody tried Greg Nuckol's A2S2? I'm planning on buying it and hopping on it in a week or so. Edit: I bought it, will update after the first 7-week cycle how well it's going!

    From what I've seen, the jailbreak community has fixed these issues years ago too.

    yup. a lot of features were basically lifted from the jailbreak scene. off the top of my head:
    -the keyboard swipe text thing (swipeselect)
    -smaller volume hud (ultrasound)
    -call bar as a notification (callbarxs)
    -seeing wifi/bluetooth networks in the control center (weather vane)
    -file manager (filza)
    -picture in picture (milkyway2)
    -screen recording (CCrecord)
    -the "swipe back" gesture (Swipeback)
    -Predictive word bar on keyboard (PredictiveKeyboard)
    and those are just some major features. even dark mode came earlier but that was probably already planned by Apple. Apple has a long history of sherlocking 3rd party features.

    this is a very strange article to read as a male. I don't think ever in a million years would something like this ever happen between men. Another thing, why do the women in the article even need the validation? With how sexualised women's bodies are you'd think they wouldn't really need a reminder that they're still sexy and desirable. If anything it's men who need this with how desexualised the male body has been.

    yeah I posted this mainly to try and start a discussion on ways to actually improve the police in the US. it seems like most people are focusing on just defunding police, which, while it might be good for other reasons, I think it's an overly simplistic solution to a multifaceted problem. I definitely agree that funding should go from buying new toys to actual training though.

    I reached my goal I set in April of a 135lb bench before June! By um, one day. For one set (I failed the other 3 sets of 4, even at 130lbs). I think next up is getting by deadlift up to 225lbs which I should be able to do in under 3 weeks (hopefully).

    Does anyone have any recommendations for what program to hop on after I'm finished with LP? I was thinking either A2S2 or 5/3/1 (for beginners? bbb?).

    also, the worst thing you could do for your fitness is nothing at all. even if it's suboptimal, doing anything is better than nothing. don't get caught up in analysis paralysis. getting stronger is simple. there's a reason big people are called "meatheads" or "gymbros" — it doesn't take all that much intellect. getting stronger is simple but hard.

    I trust these resources because they worked for a lot of people and they're supported by strong people and by what little current science there is, which is really all you can do.

    for stronger by science: the main guy, Greg Nuckols is a "competitive powerlifter with several all-time, drug-free records in the 220 and 242 weight classes, including best competition lifts of 750 on the squat, 425 bench press, and 710 deadlift." he's also been coaching for over a decade, has a bachelors in exercise science and the articles often link several studies to back up their claims and are honest if the evidence looks weak. here's a comment by him on the same topic.

    for r/weightroom: a lot of strong or knowledgeable people congregate there, like the creators of popular programs (guy who made GZCLP, nSuns, Phrakture's program, etc.) and super strong guys like mythicalstrength. they post articles from people who know what they're talking about like Jim Wendler, Stronger by Science and Barbell Medicine and generally have pretty high quality discussion in the comments. in "weakpoint wednesdays," where people discuss various specified topics every week, the top comments are required to post "credentials," usually in the form of a picture of their physique if it's a discussion on some aesthetic weakpoint, or their lifts if it's on a specific lift/muscle group. they also sometimes hold ama's from people who've accomplished something huge, or people who know what they're talking about like the previously mentioned Jim Wendler

    for thefitness.wiki: it's made by the current mod of r/weightroom and r/fitness and supports common sentiments i've heard on the various resources i've already linked. also, they explain their reasoning behind their recommendation in clear terms so you could research the claims yourself if you'd like. also links studies where appropriate like here if you want to evaluate the claims yourself.

    for r/fitnesscirclejerk: it's mostly strong and experienced people there linking and making fun of stupid posts they see on r/fitness, and those same people hang around r/weightroom and other subs I trust. some notable strong examples: u/ZBGBs, u/magic_warlock0- (second guy deadlifts over 850lbs. there are probably under 100 people in the whole world who can do that).

    ultimately it's up to you to evaluate and decide whether you trust any of these. I trust them because they're all part of the same "sphere" of people who seem to be strong, have done this for a while and have the credentials to back that up.

    i'd highly recommend the r/fitness wiki as a basic resource (it's one of the best fitness resources on the internet), Stronger by Science for the articles, and lurking r/weightroom and r/fitnesscirclejerk to get a sense of the opinions of people who know what they're talking about (instead of people like me who've only been lifting for a few months haha)

    sounds kind of similar to the "form" circlejerk in a lot of fitness communities.

    any time any impressive feat of strength (usually by a woman) makes it to the front page of r/all, a bunch of people who've never lifted in their lives shit all over it because of "poor form" or accuse them of steroids or "hehe i can't even a tenth of that :3" because that's about the depth of their superficial knowledge of lifting.

    also oftentimes when people start they're given the advice to start with the bar until they get "perfect form," ignoring that everyone's bodies and leverages are different and that form is mostly unconnected to injury.

    so in response, the fitness analogue of "fuddies" have intentionally posted dangerous-looking lifts (they deleted the video but here's a demo of it) for what I imagine are similar reasons to the "fuddies" posting the dick-gun pictures.

    if the "form" comments weren't posted in such a matter-of-fact way or so many times I don't think it'd be a problem but I can see how it can get annoying to someone who's been in those communities for a while.

    anecdotally but this makes perfect sense with what i've been seeing around me. yesterday one of my neighbors held a party. today another had a bunch of people over at their pool. a week ago I was driving past a restaurant and the parking lot was full.
    it seems like boredom/selfishness combined with governors bending under trump's/protestors' pressure has made social distancing optional at best.
    overall it's pretty hard to stay hopeful for how the country will fare with the pandemic or as a whole.

    I finally hit a plate on my squat!!
    I know that to most people that's really unimpressive, but it's the first milestone (however small) that i've really hit so far and I started out weak even for my age/height.
    My next goal rn is to hit 135lbs on my bench, hopefully before June (i'm at 105 4x4/95 4x8 atm).

    Kind of dreading the start of spring break. I started lifting jn January and made ok progress, but i've seen a lot faster progress now that i've stopped babying my weight progression and started going 3x instead of 2x a week these past few weeks. The weightroom has been refreshingly empty now that pre-season conditioning is done haha.
    Unfortunately, the weightroom is closed during break (or at least i'm pretty sure) and there are few good gyms in my area. They're either planet fitness-type "fitness centers" or exorbitantly expensive. Oh well. I'm hoping I see a good rack pop up on craigslist for a reasonable price but i'm afraid the new-years quitselling boat has sailed. Tennis is also starting soon and it coincides exactly with the hours the weightroom is open :/.

    Question: I can't seem to improve the number of pull-ups I can do. It seems like I can do fewer each time haha. Is there anything I can do besides rows to do better on them?

    If you aren't turned off from Windows completely, you might want to look into Windows 10 LTSC. Supposedly it's like Windows 10 but with more Windows 7-like tracking and no cortana or adware. Don't know if it can be legally acquired if you're not a business but it isn't to hard to get through other means :^)
