What Jacket to buy?
« Reply #50 on: August 05, 2020, 02:36:30 PM »
I'm not talking about socialising, I'm talking about other aspects. I'm talking about the stuff has been talking about above, getting in shape, looking good, doing more activities, and other stuff. As soon as I finish my house conversion I'll be making a move on that stuff.

Have you put off getting in shape or studying Russian because of
your house remuddling/conversion? You are just making excuses
if you are. Getting in shape starts now. You can go for a walk, do
sit ups etc. The same for studying Russian.

Another look to consider  :D

Lol, I think that is Elton John, I don't want to dress like a gay guy!

Well the gyms closed, I was making some progress building up arm muscles. I've got some home gym stuff in but have had all sorts of problems that meant that O keep having to forgo using it. Hopefully this Friday I will get back on track using it. Russian I have been learning off and on, the present situation has put me off a bit since I don't know if I will be able to get out there again for sure. Cities in the UK are going into Lockdown, I'm ok as I'm out in the countryside. Spain tried to rejuvenate it's tourism industry only for virus numbers to rise. So I'm not sure if travel will be a long term option. I need to try and get back into a routine of doing this stuff to get it back on track.

The house conversion has been pretty full on demand on me. I'm kind of anxious to get it finished now to get it off my hands if only to get some time back for myself and reverse the spend out to money in. Then that's when I should have a lot more scope rather than a few minutes here and there with stuff.

You are making excuses.

Not at all, there are practicalities I have to work with through or it just won't work.

At the moment I can get passed having to quarantine in Ukraine but when I return to the UK I must self isolate for 14 days. I don't have enough leave left to cover that at work and going to work would be risky as it could then be proved that I wasn't self-isolating and potentially thrown in the slammer and most probably lose my job.

Once my house conversion is complete I can rent out some rooms, before too long I could probably knock work on the head for a bit and go out to Ukraine. Given the employment situation though I would have to be very sure before doing that. I would be better of doing the travel as holiday until I'm certain.

If testing becomes better in the UK that I can use that to avoid a 14 self isolation or Ukraine gets added to the list of countries I don't have to self quarantine then I would seriously consider going. Ukraine should be on that list as in theory if the figures are to be believed it is in a better situation with the virus than many EU countries who are on the non quarantine on return list.

Hopefully matters will change, believe me I would love to get it on with a girl in Ukraine if only to zip up the mouth on that Oirish blagger ;)

look, I have a couple of spare clues here...
so I can afford to be generous and give one to y’all

whatever or WHOEVER YOU ARE
is WHO YOU WILL ATTRACT IN RETURN

simple as that

if you are down somewhere “on the bottom”
well....
don’t expect to attract someone on the top
horrosho?

OTOH, if you are “top shelf”
then the sky is the limit in Russia
and if you’re a MAN
you can live any kinda erotic lifestyle you please, as long as you can afford it

this is what I’ve learned from the ole empirical observation method
as evidenced many times all over Moscva

but Before Corona, all these slavic cities in the East were paradises
and then there were places like Budapest, OMG!!! the women there
I even learned Hungarian to hit on them
literal sex goddesses

Generally I think that is pretty true for probably around 90 percent of people in terms of looks at least. Other factors can come into play such as wealth, social skills etc but even then a lot of people will end up with someone who is similar on the looks scale to them. So a guy who is an everyday 5 will commonly get a girl who is an everyday 5. Some guys who get into positions of high social status can get women that are more attractive than them. Guys like Donald Trump etc though I wouldn't know how attractive women find Donald Trump on looks alone.

I think there are ways to beat the system  if you know what to look out for, and what to do, potentially.

Forget the jacket, Trench. Arrange you meet-ups in a nudist area, no expensive wardrobe needed. I recommend leaving your laptop and other devices at your apartment. ;D

exercise or learn a bit of Russian? Make flash cards, take a
long fast walk, do push ups and sit ups and believe me you
will improve on every level.

I lifted weights for an hour at least once a week for over a year. I had some slight improvement in the arms but that is all. I doubt going on some long fast walks and push ups and press ups will improve me at all. I'm going to try and get back to the weight lifting at home however I think I have one of those bodies that isn't easily shaped by such.

I'll try to find time to continue learning Russian soon. I just lost the motivation a bit as it's not clear whether going out to the FSU will be feasible in the long run because f the virus. I don't use flash cards, I tried them and found they didn't work well, I'm trying to build up a conversational knowledge of the language.

Stuff is coming about it's just taking a bit of time.

Once a week? That's program? Why don't you learn ONE Russian word
per year, in only 500 years you might know enough to have a caveman
type conversation.

What did you think I was suggesting?

Here is a REAL program: Make ZERO excuses for a whole week.
Exercise 6 days per week, study Russian 6-7 days per week for
an hour each day. 6 hours of exercise per week and 7 hours of
Russian per week.

OR this
100 situps per day and 100 push ups per day. 45 minute fast
walk per day. ONE day off of exercise per week.
10 Russian words per day. ONE day of practicing with a Russian
girl.

Trench, that's NOT trying....
what do you do with your time?
when I was your age, I was working 80 hour weeks in silicon valley
and making a ton of money back in those days

consider money to be the ultimate "social lubricant"
to minimize your living friction
be willing to go where "no man has gone before"
and you'll end up being first
do you know the guy's name who came to the new world right after Columbus?
no?

Trenchcoat : 

5440 psts x 15 minutes (average time to write a post and read some others) = 81600 minutes.
Time spent at work per year 1600 hours 
Time spend on rwd = 1360 hours
 
Don't see the problem?
 
1360 hours barely one year full time learning russian which in my opinion would give a serious B1, largely enough to have a conversationnal level.
1360 hours ? Largely enough to go to socials and go to several workshops to learn the game.
 
The things you should have start beginning of 2016 : social dynamics and russian. Because it needs a long time to go. House you can do this any week.

Time spent on RWD most important of all ;D

I know, I wish I spent more time back in 2016 on learning Russian. I went for the cheap, i.e free option of learning from free online resources when I should have paid good money for some better learning resources. I have those resources now but often I am too tired out to spend decent time on them. Theoretically I only need to spend half an hour or so each day on it but it's finding half an hour when I'm not knackered. The idea that it might all be in vain if I can't get back to the FSU isn't a motivating one either.

I know ML previously said that learning the language is not as important as spending time getting better income. For me I think learning the language is important though I can see where he is coming from on that one. I think at least some language learning is a real help and setting aside half an hour or so whenever possible at reasonably frequent occasions is a good idea.

The house really needed to be converted, it was a one bedder and in need of doing up anyway. I needed a house with a bit more scope than a one bedder to give me more scope and to look decent to a FSW. It is now around a 3 bedroom house :) I don't intend to stop there but to use it as a springboard to move onto bigger and better. Currently the housing market is good around here as it's a place just a bit outside Cardiff so benefits now as being outside a big city that many are looking to move away from because of the virus. So it's already worth over double of what I paid for it. Now I'm sure you understand I can't go to a FSW with a one bedder that is not in a great state. I'm having to redo the garden in all of this so it looks decent enough too.

Now most of the time I'm on RWD I'm either at work or on break time or odd few minutes of the day I couldn't really spend on much else so the efficiency there is evident. I joke about RWD above but in all honesty you guys have helped me a lot and I've learnt a lot in here as well as me bringing important topics to light I think. So I wouldn't class it as unimportant. Understanding the terrain can be worth more than learning the language, fitness, etc. After all if someone does not know what to do when with a FSW and what the environment is like he is operating in then he can fail time and again without working out why.

Seriously if I could squeeze any language learning, fitness stuff in sooner I would but sometimes it's best to finish off one labour intensive task so that it gives time to allow for other stuff to happen.

One day of workout per week isn't going to make you much better
than you are now, certainly not ripped. I've played college basketball
and have been trained by experts.

You make more excuses than a Russian girl who doesn't want to give
out her phone number. Either you want this or you don't. You sorta
want this as long as you aren't arsed to do anything about it.

Trench,
back about when I was your age, I went to some of the non-European parts of the FSU like Oozbeckastan, kazakstan, and the Russian Far East...

there’s a whole class of women in these places who are mixed eurasian
who would do pretty much ANYTHING to keep a simple white boy like you “HAPPY"
but, OMG, you will HAVE to be their teacher
because their behavior will be well outside the norms of polite British society

if you’re planning on bringing one home, pick one that doesn get VIOLENT when angry
and LISTENS to you and wants to fit in and get their own British friends
otherwise “shine them on” but be REAL careful how you “break-up” with these women
some of them could kill you!!!

all you really have to do, is just “be nice” to these women, and show them a good time
while at the same time “pretend" to have NO sexual interest in them at the beginning
and the first moment they are alone with you, 100% their undies magically fall off
because they have no other way to get your attention more or less

what a rush!
because these women are actually REALLY beautiful
they just have a REALLY strong “white boy complex”
and you just happen to be the most interesting White Boy they've "come across"
and the only one from your country
so of course THEY WANT YOU as much as the other way 'round
the easiest sex you will ever experience is in these places
just go and stand somewhere and wait for them to come to you
100% THEY will come to YOU!

So what is the tipping point where on average the average guy will get ripped? Do I have to do one hundred sit ups and press ups per day as you suggest? It's not that I couldn't but that it would take a lot of time out of my schedule and it would probably likely be tedious for me to do. A long fast walk I could do, probably less tedious but still a lot of time out of my schedule.

100 situps and pushups and the walk each day is just to improve yourself

What's your definition of ripped? 

My definition would cost 1.5 hours per day 5 days a week minimum.
You can improve yourself with less.

Yeah but they say you need to give your muscles a rest between workouts so that the damage done has a chance to repair itself and form muscle. They say about an hour or so two or three times per week is optimal.

Ok something along the lines of this guy:

Trench, like Bill when I was younger 16-19, I was on the verge of being drafted to the AFL. Unfortunately I had a run of injuries that put an end to that. I trained and worked out with professional guidance and had a similar physique to the guy in the picture. To achieve that it took 6 weight sessions of 1-2 hours a week and 30 km of running for cardio because I was an on the ball player.

Sure you have to rest your muscles, but that’s why you do arms and chest one day, legs the next day then back the following day. Also if you’re not strictly sticking to your diet and putting the right food and supplements in your body, you will struggle for results. If you want to look like that guy in 3 years (that’s what’s required.... a daily comment for years) it takes dedication, sacrifice, time and for most a lifestyle change indefinitely. To maintain that physique you will need to keep up the daily gym routine for life. At 19 I’d stopped working out and by age 22 I’d lost all my gains.

My Apartment neighbour in Russia is a body builder and he spends  a minimum of 4 hours in the gym a day and 6 hours leading up to  a competition. He still managed to hold down a full time job and 2 girlfriends. 

On the sit ups / push ups..... If you can’t smash out 100 of each in 10-15 minutes after a two week build up you’re not trying. It’s like everything in life if you put in the effort you will see results. That goes for losing weight, building muscle, making more money and even dating.  If you do it half arsed you’ll achieve nothing.

why not get paid for working out?
seriously, do roofing
if you work everyday, 100% you will get a workout
you need to be able to lift 160 lb of shingles onto your shoulder and balance
while you RUN up the ladder with it
and then hammer these shingles with a heavy hammer
do this 5 days or 6 days a week for 6 months
and you will be ROCK SOLID...
and if you had worked continuously for 6 months , you'd almost have enough for a house down payment as well
