5517 I want to learn how to swim
I am 27 years old and I still don't know how to swim. I would like to pick up the skill. I also think it would be good for me because I am morbidly obese and swimming is a low-impact exercise.

I'm concerned about using public swimming pools because of stuff I've seen on TV where somebody swimming tastes urine in their mouth or sees poop floating on the water. I'd really like to avoid such experiences even though my experience with swimming (with floats) as a child was fine.

What's your opinion on swimming in public pools? Is it acceptable or should I just stick to the treadmill?

It really depends where you go. I used to swim in a posh gym/hotel swimming pool, and it was far cleaner, quieter and overall better than my local leisure centre. I would recommend looking for such a gym because honestly my only experience in LCs are of fat chav families and their screaming children.

I wouldn't recommend public baths. That lad from Bronski Beat might try and get you.

Like otherlad said, gym pools are decent and if you're not confident they don't have deep-ends or people messing about. Go during the afternoon on a weekday if you can as from my experience it'll just be you, the staff might be willing to teach you as well.

If it's a shallow gym pool you find people that just walk back and forth instead of swimming. That could help build your confidence just being in the pool and around water.

Most public pools are basically fine, especially if you go when they're quiet. Many leisure centres are open well before 9am, which is a good time to avoid the screaming kids.

I'd strongly recommend taking lessons to build your confidence in the water and get you started with the right technique. Most leisure centres run adult swimming courses for beginners - ring your local council for details.

So which is it I am doing professor, make up your mind?

This is an ailments thread on an image board mate, the entire point is to have a piss and a moan about your ailments, and you’ve gotten awfully high and mighty about the purpose of the thread pretty quickly if you think anyone is coming before seeking medical advice, and not just to complain. If you don't want a banal thread you need people to actually share interesting problems.

>This is serious
Not as serious as you would think. First time it happened doctors were concerned it could be stage 4 bladder cancer as it has a lot of shared symptoms, facing your own mortality like that is terrifying, after that kidney stones felt like a blessing.

Never heard about that before I'll ask my doctor about it next time we talk about this. Thanks

4996 Quitting Smoking
I'm going to attempt to quit smoking and was wondering if any of you had tips or experiences to share? We did have a thread a few years back but it seems to have disappeared from the catalogue, though from what I remember Allen Carr's book was highly recommended.

My stats if they help put things into context:
7 a day on weekdays, 4 on weekends. 9 years of smoking.

The discrepancy on the weekdays is that I have a work routine of smoking during my breaks. There's a question there of what I'm supposed to do if I'm not smoking.

Bumping this thread since I didn't know if my question warranted a new one on this completely dead board but I'm quitting smoking this weekend. What's your experience with e-cigs? Is there a consensus on which one to get? I have an Aspire (I think) which I sometimes use when reading in bed, but I'm not enamoured with it.

Oh, and you get some truly dreadful results if you look up e-cig "memes".

I'm on my second Aegis mini, they're rugged compared to most others and fit well in a coat pocket. Battery lasts a year of regular use.

If you're really planning to quit; the main thing to do is to buy the liquid in a substantial quantity so you can deliberately taper off the nicotine. If you let yourself run low then you'll end up only being able to buy what the nearest corner shop has in stock and chances are it'll be a ridiculously high nic % that'll set you back months before your re-up arrives. Plus it'll probably taste filthy.

I've got... Some kind of thing with a slipstream tank, pretty bog standard stuff. I've gone through a few and ended up with this simply because the bits are cheap and readily available.

Honestly people shit on vaping a lot but I've managed to entirely replace smoking with it. It did takea bit of effort, it wasn't just an overnight cold-turkey switch, but it enabled me to experience first hand how much better you feel without lungs full of tar without giving up the actual habit. After that it was easier and easier to turn down the fags- I never realised just how nasty that hacking, phlegmy morning smoker's cough is until it was gone.

If convincing evidence comes out that vaping is harmful I'm probably fucked, but until then whatever.

I'm relatively new to weight training. How much would you need to lift to have a body similar to Mac's? I know the aim is to continually increase the amount you can lift but I've genuinely no idea when looking at various physiques how much they'd roughly be able to and it'd be nice to have a mental benchmark to be working towards.

Thanks, lads.

I use it to rinse the bits of food out of my teeth after a meal. Brushing your teeth after everything you eat is definitely a bit psychopathic, but most tooth decay is meant to start off from the bits of carbohydrate stuck to your teeth, which breaks down into sugar because of your mouth enzymes. Mouthwash feels like a good compromise, or a bit of sugar free chewing gum if you're out.

Hi all, recently got a fitbit charge4 and it confirmed what I already thought, that I have a relatively low resting bpm (like 60?) but whenever I do any sort of minor 'exercise' (say, just walking up the stairs or walking 50 metres or something) it goes through the roof. I end up sweating a lot as well. I don't know if that's connected.

I am very unfit though, only just started doing regular exercise.

Is this normal?

>I didn't go out with the intention of doing such distances, I just felt prepared to carry on doing them, so I did.

And that's totally a mistake that lots of people make, you're normal; lots of people go out too hard, injure themselves and then quickly give up on the whole idea as it hurts. I walk quite quickly, and live in a very hilly party of the country - an hours walk is about 500 - 600 calories burned for me - if I run or cycle, might get an extra 200 added onto that. By spending the first month walking, you'll still build up tons of fitness, but it will feel really easy and you're much more likely to stick to it.

I've lost a lot of weight over the past couple of years - walking a lot, not too much running, and super watching the diet. I did many weeks of the 800 calorie diet, and mostly prefer a 2:5 approach now (that's the reverse of 5:2 - ie 5 days fasting at 800 calories and 2 days eating what the fuck I like, including pizza + Chinese). I've a history of diabetes in the family, and can easily be one of those thin chubby people if I overeat/drink.

Down from 89kg to just above 83kg, been going to the gym average 5x a week and cycling average about 4h a week and doing a lot more walking. Average calorie intake for the last three weeks has been 1400kcal. Recently been orienting my diet towards proteiny stuff like fish and chicken. Started with a routine I've modified slightly to add more bodyweight stuff before the aftual workout, dynamic stuff like kettlebell swings. I dont feel like I'm getting stronger but I'm not eating right yet so I'm with it at the moment.

Heart rate spikes seem less severe now, maybe I've just started to get used to actually doing some exercise again. Resting heart rate hovering around 58 still.

Intending to start eating a lot more when I reacj my target weight or plateau weightwise for two weeks, whichever comes first.

A couple of months back I was in the store room with a colleague and when she couldn't get past the boxes I was moving I went "Oh, you can never leave..." and it actually blew my mind so much when she recognised the reference (which I had forgotten was even a reference) that I was rendered unable to make an inappropriate sexual advance on her.

So, uh, by my girls request I'm trying out the "Cum Load Holy Grail" mix.

It's a mix of supplements that supposedly increase the volume of your ejaculations.

I will be taking (the slightly cut down version):

L-Arginine, 1000mg.
Zinc, 50mg.
Soya Lecithin, 1200mg.
Pygeum, 200mg.
( L-Lysine: 1000mg has been cut).

But I'm slightly concerned about how safe this is? I take Sertraline 50mg daily, I can't find any interactions online...

That's slightly more zinc than would be recommended, but it shouldn't cause you any real problems over the course of weeks or months. Lecithin and arginine are totally safe. I can't find good toxicology data on pygeum, but given the widespread use and the lack of reported adverse events it's probably reasonably safe.

No obvious interactions with sertraline. Incidentally, your dose is rather low - not a problem if it's working for you, but if you have any latent symptoms then I'd suggest trying at least 100mg.

Get in here fatlads.

I've made an effort to properly lose weight but have stalled in the last 2 months - and it's starting to creep up. I used to lift weights 3x/week and control the diet, but I can't lift for a while until some medical stuff gets sorted. This has taken a bit of a hit on my progress - or more likely,ive used it an excuse to slack.

What's your story?

P.s. I track calories and weight using my fitness pal.

The wooden beam itself is easily strong enough to take your weight as long as it's not rotten.
If it doesn't go "through" the walls, it's hard to see what else is holding it up. It looks like it's physically resting on top of the breeze-blocks on the right hand side and is mortared in, I'd assume it's fitted the same on the left hand side with some plasterwork just boxing it in.
So as long as it's more than a couple of inches inside the blockwork it'll easily hold your weight.

As others have said though the biggest problem is being comfortable holding it. If you can get one, I'd try and find one of those over-door-frame pull up bars, and perhaps bodge it a little to mount onto that beam.
