What is The Musclewiz Life?
It’s a life that celibate virgins can follow and that focuses on spending your time training, be it, in the gym, or at home doing bodyweight exercises.
To me life is about fighting the bad with the good, and the musclewiz life does that, it fights the bad because it is composed by good moments, feelings, and states that deflect or decrease the bad feelings from getting to you.
I found that exercise combined with other activities like eating, sleeping and lucid dreaming will result in a better and more enjoyable life because doing these things alone already feel good. This can come off as common sense to many, but the good musclewiz life that you can get as a result from doing them, is contingent upon the focus and importance that you give these activities in your daily life. In other words, you have to be serious about them for them to really work together and improve your life.
Explanation of the activities:
We all know sleep feels good for the most part and sleeping is necessary for recovering from training so you will be motivated to sleep more and feel like sleeping if you train.
We also know food is one of the biggest pleasures in life and eating food is necessary when you are training, and exercise will increase your appetite, so basically you will want to eat and feel good eating because of hunger (hunger makes food tastier). Depending on how much you train you won’t have to follow a strict or extremely healthy diet. As long as you don’t have bad eating habits and restrain from overeating certain foods, then you will probably be able to enjoy most foods for the majority of time without a worry. And if you want, you can set a day of the week to eat junk food. That day can be the same as your rest day where you will do no training.
Lucid dreaming is something you can practice while you are recovering, and after you get good at it you will be able to control your dreams and have an even better time when you’re asleep than you would normally do, in any way that you please.
It’s up to you what you do in your dreams. You could create a 2d loli and use her as weight to work out and improve your muscle memory or you could fly through your city and shit and pee in every building you come across.
Let’s also not forget that training in itself feels good and there’s many health benefits associated with it. So you will feel motivated to train because it will make you feel good.
Results from training are also positive:
Once you’ve made even a little progress and reached a certain number of weight or reps or whatever you set your mind to you will feel great because you’ve reached a desired goal or state, which means you are getting better at something.
Once you get to a point where you feel you can replicate these good feelings then you will only have to follow that routine that already works for you to keep feeling good.
When you are at that stage, you are already living the musclewizlife.
Low effort reply, sorry.
Only thing keeping me from losing weight at this point besides mental state is that I fear what I'd look like with all the extra skin I've grown to store the fat.
It's not about what others would think of me, but I can just imagine how uncomfortable all that extra skin folding, chafing, extra sweat and general unease it would result in. Not to mention cleaning myself would be even more of a paint than it is now. Also I have been suffering from joint ache in my fingers which doctors ignored so I'm worried putting strain on them would cause further damage. Different preexisting conditions also limit my options.
Other than that, I'd probably enjoy the ease it would provide me with just general moving around I guess.
Lately I have been experiencing dreadful fear of death. (Even though I had considered and tried suicide previously.) The fact that I'm unhealthy might contribute to this, fearing the ever increasing pain and suffering as a result of my choices and genetic factors. So this newfound fear of death and desire for more comfort might lead me to try the musclewiz path.
I don't know why this resonates with me like some kind of spell, yet I can't seem to understand it, but feel it nonetheless.
Idk if this applies to me but I have been /fit/ for a little more than a year now and it does help with the morale. Waking up in the morning and admiring your sweet bod in the bathroom mirror feels good. Beating your PB on a lift feels fucking good. Feeling your muscles sore and feeling the blood pumping feels fucking good. For me the only negative point is the expenses related to the high protein food as well as the gym equipment. Weights are crazy expensive but since it's my only hobby and since I don't spend money on netflix subscriptions or whatever it's fine. Anyone else willing to tell their experience?
Idk if this applies to me but I have been /fat/ for a little more than a lifetime now and it does help with the morale. Waking up in the morning and admiring your sweet gut in the bathroom mirror feels good. Beating your highscore in calories feels fucking good. Feeling your muscles wasting away and feeling the blood clotting in my veins feels fucking good. For me the only negative point is the expenses related to the high quantity of food as well as the eating equipment.

I have went from 210 to 130 and the loose skin was on my butt and a little flap where my belly used to be. It is not bad at all, the more uncomfortable thing to me was 'feeling' my pelvic bone and it hurting whenever I sat down for extended periods. The loose skin was not noticeable at all, except for making you feel gross when you get out of the shower (I rarely ever showered before and went on month long streaks in order not to when I was losing weight due to having to look at my body naked). I gained a decent portion of the weight back, and even though I feel as fat as ever, I'm only 180, so it might have changed my mindset as well by making me more conscious of my body, yet I am eating whenever I feel like it, which is pretty much all the time.
I'm similar. Lifting has been a hobby of mine since high school.
No greater high to me than a nice controlled lift. Equipment is expensive but we'll worth it imo. I fucking hate public gyms.
i realized lifting won't fix my ugly face or personality and everyone will just see me as a buff overcompensating manlet
The only social benefit that lifting has to a total outcast is that once you get big enough, it decreases your chances of being fucked with by some random asshole.
Take care of thyselves. You may need it more than you think
>>173088>I have went from 210 to 130 and the loose skin was on my butt and a little flap where my belly used to be.
Did you have stretch marks before losing weight? I'm peaked at around 230~ pounds and was hovering around 210 last time I weighed myself but that was a long time ago now, might be more.
Do you think some of the loose skin would have gone away with time if you kept your weight? Do you think you could have "filled" it out a bit with some muscle?
I'm glad to hear it wasn't too bad.
I never had stretch marks before and also I did not see any stretch marks that were noticeable during the weight loss. The hanging skin is what stood out to me.
As for would it have gone away, I would guess very likely, but it would be a combination of upping calories and doing those butt workouts that succubi do to get bigger posterior. A little upper body and I'm sure the flap on my gut would have gone away as well. Only problem was I was very weak, I'm talking I got winded going up a flight of stairs and my bones felt hollow. I think if I would have stopped right when I felt healthy and then started working out it would have been ideal. I got sucked into trying to "beat" how much weight I could lose each month and that sort of became an obsession. Don't fall for that and I'm sure you will do fine.
As for how I lost so much weight (don't know if you care), I ate the same thing everyday while keeping a journal. 1 egg + 1 cup oatmeal + 1 tbspn of honey + water in microwave in the morning. After that I would fast, drink water, endure the belly rumbling until close to night time, and then I would eat a massive bowl of lettuce,onion,diced carrot,spinach, w/e with 1 tsp of olive oil drizzled over it. You will feel stuffed but calorie speaking you will be at around or less than 1,000 calories. It took me 6 months to lose the weight I did, which is not bad at all.
I have this loose skin problem around the thighs, buttocks and stomach. It looks awful when I bend over, and it also feels weird. I have no intention of attempting to "fill it up" with muscles or anything so I guess the only option would be surgery, which is not worth the hassle.
If it's not too private to share, would you tell us your height/weight(max and current)?
How long did you have the loose skin for? Did it get better over time?>>173230
Thanks for the answers. I assume you are relatively tall?
I don't want to deal with loose skin since it feels like it would be hell. But considering the long term health problems that could come from the excess weight I think I'd suffer less long-term with losing it.
What do you mean by the 1 egg + outmeal combo? Do you just mix the egg into the oatmeal?
Only time I cooked oatmeal was using milk. Do you add the honey after or before heating? I remember reading somewhere that heating honey makes it loose a lot of its beneficial traits, might be wrong though.
I'm 5'8" I think? I might be 1"+/- off. As for the oatmeal I would put the water, raw egg, and oats into the same bowl - microwave for about [2 minutes 30 seconds] and then add the honey after giving it a bit of a mix with the spoon.
In regards to the salad I would put a can of shredded chicken into that if I had it (which was rare since I'm a perma neet and mommy didn't like shopping for me). So I just made do with the leafy greens/onions/tomatoes/cauliflower,w/e vegetables we had on hand. And make a BIG bowl (i used the bowl my mom would use for making cookie dough), your goal is to make it so you will be halfway through eating and feel stuffed, and force yourself to eat the rest - that way you won't go to bed on an 'empty' stomach. Lettuce has very little calories, so you are essentially starving yourself of nutrition which forces your body to eat the fat when you sleep. I have tried many strange diets before and have given up on all of them, this was the only one that was doable for me. Then again everyone has their own things that is effective for just them, so it would not surprise me if this is not to your liking, worth a shot though.
1. Make a journal, catalog your caloric intake. Find out how many calories you need to eat to maintain weight, try to set a caloric goal far below that. Meet that goal as often as you can. The oatmeal I would round up much higher than it was in order to give myself a buffer so I would feel I was failing and be surprised when I lost weight.
2. Breakfast: 1 cup oatmeal, 1 egg, 3/4 cup water > microwave > add 1 tbsp honey. Fast for the rest of the day, sipping water or eating a small (less than 1/4 cup) handful of oats if you need something to hold you over. Close to bedtime dinner: Big bowl of whatever vegetables you have + a can of shredded pork/chicken added as a reward if you really need the nutrition, plus a tiny drizzle (1 tsp) of olive oil. It should be mentioned: no juice, coffee, tea, nothing that might trigger a hunger response. Only water, and even then try to save that for when you eat your nighttime salad.
I should mention the obvious, you will endure significant hunger pains in the 1st month, but they do subside quite a lot as you continue. If you have a depressive episode, you might just springboard back to your old habits and lose everything you gained like I did, good luck in whatever path you choose wiz.
>Make a journal, catalog your caloric intake.
This is one of the worst piece of advice I've ever seen. Assuming you keep doing this for life, it will make you neurotic and is just not a healthy way to live at all. And if you don't and need this as a temporary crutch, it might be counter-productive once you drop it. Don't mind numbers too much or it'll make you mad.
I am >>173278
and in hindsight I agree, it is probably one of the factors that led me to go overboard and eventually just give up all together. HOWEVER, I do think it was helpful at the beginning. I would give it up after the first month and see how you do after you get the ball rolling. I don't know why, but typing this shit up after having failed is somewhat cathartic to me, helping me realize I did something once about my weight, regardless if it was a failure, is nice to think about as I munch on my double chocolate chip coconut oatmeal cookies.
I used to lift, then stopped as my life went tits up for a while. I have recently started again and am so demoralised by how much strength I've lost. Even if I can gain it back its just horrible knowing that I have regressed so hard
>>173262>If it's not too private to share, would you tell us your height/weight(max and current)?
5'10 or 11 I'm not sure
max wt was > 230lbs
current is < 130lbs
I've had the loose skin as soon as I started losing weight, though it obviously got more noticeable as it went on.
Thank you for the detailed responses!
I decided to lose the weight even though I think I'll have to deal with loose skin. At this point I see it as a way to minimize suffering long-term. I'll give your diet a try.>>173302
Now I'm certain I'll have to deal with loose skin. I'm only 5'7. How did you deal with the loose skin? Is it still there? Still as "bad" as when you initially lost the weight? Have you tried any remedies for it, if you even care about it?
Yes it's still there. And no I have not tried anything, I do not think there is a remedy besides surgery or bulking up. And I have no interest in doing either of these.
Thanks for the answer. I guess if I'll have loose skin I'll go with the bulking up method since its free.
I'll be a dwarven musclemage once I hit 30.
i tried becoming lean but i will go bloatmaxxing wiz
>>173002>Only thing keeping me from losing weight at this point besides mental state is that I fear what I'd look like with all the extra skin I've grown to store the fat
Look into dry fasting. People had success with reducing loose skin with that. Over time you will lose a portion of your skin as well. It just might take longer than you think.>>173002>joint ache in my fingers which doctors ignored
Arthritis/Inflammation is also cured with fasting. Basically as far as inflammation is concerned, visceral fat contributes a lot to that. Simply losing the fat will most likely remove the pain. Also fasting will do the same. Try to do that for 4-5 days with water only and observe the results. Dont eart carbs at all. Just stick to meat/fish/poulty and eggs and youll improve 100%.
Its worthwile to do that just for the better quality of life.
I am a wizard mostly because I am extremely lazy. I don't enjoy exerting myself in any capacity, never have. Lately though I am becoming freaked about about heart failure (and covid) because I started having some symptoms of heart failure so I have started exercising by hitting my punching bag. I think it would be fun to compete in MMA once the virus is over but I don't want to have to take classes. If I can find some place that will let me spar without taking classes I would like that because I think that would be the best motivator. I mean if you get winded and end up getting your ass beat you will want to be in better shape next time. I don't think I could get motivated to just lift weights for the purpose of being able to lift more weight. I don't particularly need to lift high amounts of weight, seems utterly pointless, but fighting I could get behind because it seems like it would be fun.
>>173369>I could get motivated to just lift weights for the purpose of being able to lift more weight.
I don't think that is a reason any of us would consider exercise. Not sure how grappling half naked in an arena while being watched by succubi would be fun either.
You lift weights to ease the burden of the mundane.
When you are sufficiently powerful you remove one factor of resistance whenever you wish to do something new. You never have to worry about not being able to lift something heavy, or that you lack the endurance to climb a rock or go on a long solemn hike if you feel like it.
For those who don't know of the glory of foam rolling you need to get one in your life.
It's the only thing I have found that effectively and reliability reduces DOMS. Feels pretty good too. There is no good reason not to include foam roller in your cool down routine.
You can't do that with singular pronouns. "Thou" is singular.
I've been training in Boxing and kickboxing for a year and a half. and dabbled in BJJ and wrestling along the way. I also used to lift weights very seriously.
I can tell you with absolute certainty that any kind of fighting, even sparring, is 100 times harder than just working out with weights or playing other sports.
I don't say this to discourage you, but you said that you don't like to exert yourself. You better be prepared to work harder than you ever thought possible, if you're going to do this.

No it isnt. Its much easier and more fun because its an autistic yet social event that combines physical fitness with intelligence and tactical thinking like chess.
Stop salting the earth for others seeking martial prowess.
You've never boxed or grappled before. Learning to fight is like most other things in life. No matter how exciting you think something seems in the beginning, after the novelty wears off, it just becomes work. That's not bad thing, if you're dedicated to your work, but don't get any illusions about not having to work through a lot of drudgery to get good at it.
But don't take my word on it, join a gym and prove me wrong.
what if it breaks your spine
> effectively and reliability reduces DOMS
why the fuck would you want to do that? I like doms
I did this for a while and made some OK progress but I was never consistent for any decent of length of time. I always dreaded working out and was glad when the session was over. I'm the same with cardio exercise as well… come to think of it that's worse. Tried running for about 3 months and it sucked. Never got any of the so-called endorphins. When I became NEET and had to move back in with parents I stopped. Maybe I'll pick it up again one day.
Many years ago, I went on a weekend trip to the coast where the waves were good for surfing. I tried it and it was decent fun. I was terrible at it, but I found if I just stayed away from the good surfers and didn't steal their waves it didn't matter. I probably wouldn't do it again now but I liked the fact that the exercise was just a secondary benefit to the activity compared to designated exercise.
Literally my only goal and thing on my agenda to do at all as a neet right now is to try and exercise every day. What that ends up looking like in practice is me exercising maybe a couple times per week on average with some times more consistent and some times less so. I don't know why I have such a problem with routines and consistency. The only thing I do consistently is waste time on the internet.
Yeah I used to do an OK bit of walking back and from wageslaving. Walking in and back, from lunch and back. Maybe 3 miles a day.
But now I'm NEET I barely do anything.>>173747>The only thing I do consistently is waste time on the internet.
Yep me too for many years
Because it hurts and also because if it is bad then it reduces how hard you can work out for the next few days.
I prefer to work out hard more often with less pain. Seems to get better results that way.
Tried going running after a month of not running and ended up getting an inflamed tendon by not stretching. Really need the exercise because I end up having negative ruminating thoughts if I am stuck in the dark all day
MMA is a hybridized system that only works when you have a decent
Level of mastery in a specific area of grappling or striking. I strongly suggest that you focus in one area for a couple of years.
Imo, boxing has the most crab friendly environment of all the MMA skill sets. A large preponderance of the guys I've seen in the Boxing gym have been the quiet types. I've seen several truecels, if you can believe it. Also, more than half of boxing work is solo, or can be done without making physical contact with anyone. They don't call boxing the lonely sport for no reason.. Wrestling and BJJ, on the other hand, is full of the high school jock or frat boy stereotypes. Be ready for grappling bros to talk openly about their sex lives, along with a dozen things you'll never get to experience.
>>173937>>173928>grappling is for chads >striking is for crabs
this makes some sense why strikers are so popular
grapplers don't look impressive with their wins like Khabib is undefeated but will never be as popular as say Ferguson or Silva who are known for KO'ing people cold in the cage and taking huge beatings as well.
Going to gyms is for normalfags
Self-improvement is for normalfags
Fighting is for normalfags
This thread is probably full of failed normalfags. Just do your job and delete it mods.
So home gym is the wizard's way to go?
Judoka have been good people in my experience.
You can get your grappling exp in without dealing with dudebros in judo.
remember lifting is never about the looks
its for you to lift by yourself
that's what the succubi who dress like sluts tell themselves lol
only works if you plan to live long and not end in next 5-10 yrs
Being strong is pretty good even if you don't plan on living long.
Great utility in general.
I fell for the home gym meme and regret it. I feel like I could have gotten a lot farther by now if I just sucked it up and went in there instead of being scared of judgment or whatever it was.
I used to do MMA before covid shutdown all the gyms where I live. Not 100% related to musclewiz because I’m still very skinny, but it’s a good way to get into shape and a fun hobby once you start to get good at it. Now I only do some light exercises like walks or calisthenics or jumping rope, but it’s hard to stay motivated without any reason for training. I never really cared about my body before I did martial arts, and only started to improve my fitness because I wanted to be able to be good at martial arts and you need to have a certain amount of strength, cardio, and flexibility to do certain techniques.
Wizards I had the idea to save erotica into my phone to look at while working out so it could give me some motivation to perform better but I rejected the idea and see it as an excuse to look at sexy succubi and nothing more so I opted not to do it.
Then today after looking at a PAWG on instagram I had that idea again, but this time I used Google to know if it wasn't just bro science, and good news, it was not.
TrueMuscleWiz seems to have blessed the path of the musclewiz with hentai or any other erotica the wizard might be fond of.https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21983238/https://www.medicaldaily.com/forget-steroids-watching-porn-may-enhance-athletic-performance-male-weightlifters-242051

Musclewiz life is the way. Watch hentai, masturbate, lift, eat, sleep.
Let our boners and waifus help us grow stronger. With hentai and hard erections nothing can stop us in life. The demiurge has already shitted his pants after hearing wizards are saying no to 3D and have started training to kick his ass.
Learned something new today.
whatever you need to justify your addiction brainwashed by the norman society, wizzie
Yeah because they don't actually masturbate. That's the point of abstaining, to avoid wasting expending your will on regressive desires. These people used pornography briefly before workout simply to inflame their desires, which isn't at all necessary by the way if you spend a bit of time learning how your mind works you can inflame your desire for anything. If these people actually masturbated before lifting I guarantee you their performance would be worse.
>>174083>Yeah because they don't actually masturbate
How did you reach that conclusion when sexual abstinence is not mentioned in that study nor masturbation?
Nothing is been said about sexual abstinence and better performance and yet you attribute nofap to it for some reason…
>That's the point of abstaining, to avoid wasting expending your will on regressive desires.
The study is not about abstinence anyways so why are you making it about it when it's not?
> If these people actually masturbated before lifting I guarantee you their performance would be worse.
I don't remember ever reading any study saying that masturbation can negatively affect your performance. Would you mind showing some proof to that? I believe that's a myth that's been busted a long time ago.
If this causes you to end up cumming, you've lost progress.
Not every shiny item is gold.
