Hello. My name is irrevelant. I blog, post, like, and reblog things that I like and that are relevant to me and my life. If you don't like it, don't look at my page. Ask whatever you please, but if what you say is mean, I'm not going to answer.
Being fit isn’t about body size or shape. It’s about optimizing your body’s potential to do awesome shit like this.
this is so inspirational.
For real. I am so tired of people equating fit to being thin. Fuck that.
this is the first time i’ve seen this posted with body positive messages. great!
As someone who has done gymnastics in various forms, his height is incredible. Check out where his head is - nearly chest level! And he drops his legs down so easily, arms tucked back casually.
Rock on, dude. You’re amazing.
I hate that “you can’t be fat and fit” bullshit because it cuts an entire body type out of the equation.
People typically fall into three categories: ectomorph, mesomorph, and endomorph. Ectomorphs are skinny, wiry people with fast metabolisms who build lean muscle (think track runners or gymnasts). Mesomorphs are of the archetypal athletic body type that builds muscle while burning fat; they become bodybuilders and hunky actors.
Endomorphs, the third category, are always dismissed as unhealthy for the bullshit reasons I will detail: While they gain body fat easily, they gain muscle just as easily. But since it develops under a layer of fat you can’t see it. This doesn’t mean it’s not there. An endomorph could be a bear-wrestling Appalachian trail-hiking badass and people would still look at them and think “wow look at that fatass I bet they never move”. Bitch have you ever seen a linebacker they’re fat and they run just as much as the other guys on the team. Which is another point: endomorphs can do cardio and still be fat. Their bodies don’t let go of fat without a fight and the lengths they’d have to go to in order to lose most or all of their body fat (too much exercise, too little food) could in fact be detrimental to their health. Hell, I know a cross-country hiker with a beer belly who runs six miles a day without breaking a sweat.
tl;dr the notion that body fat automatically equates to poor muscle and cardio health is a notion that only works under the assumption that everyone is naturally ectomorphic or mesomorphic. This is not true thus this idea is wrong and stupid.
THERE IS SOME REALLY GOOD INFO IN THIS POST
😳😳😳😳😳 Dude I can’t even do that so seamlessly. Geez.
“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
I also learned in my Greek Mythology class this is the way homosexuality is explained too - that it didn’t matter what sex you were - some were a guy x girl fused together and split, some were man x man, some were woman x woman - and eventually they’d find their right partner.
It was beautiful.
