>>274262 > The verb "ogle" refers to staring at someone with strong or excessive interest, often in a way that is considered impolite or suggestive. It implies a prolonged and intense gaze, typically driven by physical attraction or desire. The act of ogling often involves making someone feel uncomfortable or objectified, as it suggests a lack of respect for personal boundaries.

I will never go back to the gym to lift. I have a rack and plates and two barbells. I believe that there should be an element of mortal fear in the weightlifting area, and that if you are occupying the equipment without using it you should be subject to trial by combat.

Last time I had encountered a hunter though sitting on one of these shooting seats watching through his binoculars, that spooped me a little because he could have just shot me with absolutely no witnesses around, maybe someone in the distance would have heard a shot but that's normal, somebody shot at a deer no biggie, he could have easily picked my body up in time and loaded it unto his truck and chopped me up into little pieces and disposed of me with no trace left

>>275844 It would make me very paranoid if it went off outside. But if you are alone in the woods it wouldn't do much. However, if you are in the woods with noone around it is basically impossible to sneak up on you. As soon as someone moves in the woods you will hear him. So you should be pretty save there. Generally, I think the chances of being randomly murdered are pretty slim, because the attacker does not gain anything from it. Imho the highest chances of being attacked would be if someone would like to rape you. And tbh the best action against this would be to not look rapable. If you could pull off a false full white beard you would be pretty safe.

This will hurt in the ears and cause a natural reaction to get away from it. If you want to get more serious you might want to look into tasers.

>>275869 so you're saying mustaches are more attractive than they are intimidating? can't really get a taser since we have weird self defence laws - basically your response to an attack should be "proportionate", meaning you can't use more force than your attacker (e.g. if someone attacks you with their fists and you stab them with a knife then you're in trouble)

It is actually one more set than the usual, considering that those 4 exercises work exactly all the chest zones and 4x8-12 is the norm for hypertrophy. I try giving 5 sets for a little extra pump but yesterday I was lifting heavy so I only could during the start exercise. Right now shoulders/traps day.

Right now 60 kg because I have a rotator cuff tear that never got treated properly so I have to train smart when doing chest (those 60kg feel damn heavy) and shoulders. Shoulders day: 4x12 standing dumbbell OHP 4x12 seated dumbbell bent over lateral raises 4x12 standing Arnold press 4x12 standing dumbbell lateral raises 4x12 standing dumbbell front lateral raises 4x12 dumbbell shrugs (here HEAVY) Because of the aforementioned reasons when I use dumbbells I emphasize working more resistance (my muscles were tired by the last shoulders exercise) rather than hypertrophy (although it also works hypertrophy) when I do my shoulder dumbbell day. I have another routine for the next shoulders day where I use barbells with only 4 exercises where the focus is hypertrophy.

More than the endorphines or pleasure (which I also enjoy when working out) it is a matter of health, discipline and self-improvement. Regarding the other things, if you train smart (knowing your limits and pushing them but in a way respectful to your body) you won’t suffer injuries. My rotator cuff tear was done during a fight so it’s another story.
