The article talks about how far-right groups use self-improvement to recruit people into their own ranks by associating positive change with Fascism.

As a former Fascist, this is basically how I got into the ideology and stayed because I had experienced genuine positive change in my life and I thought that this was somehow the miracle of Fascism.

Which made me wonder, what are left wingers opinion on fitness in general? What are their ways of combating the above issue I just mentioned?

>What are leftists stance on fitness?
Being physically active enough to be healthy is necessary, anything past that is pointless, but whatever floats your boat.

> What are their ways of combating the above issue I just mentioned?

I think it's only a certain type and race of guy going down the fascism rabbit hole. I dunno how to combat it on a wide scale, not anything more than what's currently done. It's kind of like asking how to stop pedophillia. Pedophiles are gonna keep finding kids to groom, fascists and US military recruiters are going to keep finding directionless impressionable boys, you can only really stop it on an individual basis.

I guess the only way to stop it on a wide scale would be to put out messaging that works on these guys and dissuades them of going down that path.

Ok I'll pitch some ideas.


>Everyone always regrets it.


>There are much healthier ways of being a edgy young white guy. Have you considered pledging for a frat?


Isnt fittness just something extremely common in general, like most young guys i know had at least one year of going to the gym , like that goes for every ideology from commie to progresive to centrists to right wingers ,maybe in america things are different but like the whole fit fascist meme is cause no sane person posts pics on himself on imageboards


anyone can bleed out same as the next person
also wrong board



obvious pol bait thread is obvious but as a serious strength athlete (450+ wilks, 630/420/670) I will say that I've noticed that rightoids actively drive people out of specialized gyms and niche sports by being weird assholes about everything

trying to extrapolate some political aspect to strength doesn't really correlate to reality - from experience at powerlifting meets all the dipshits with blue lives matter punisher skull tattoos can barely hit a four plate squat or a three plate bench let alone any actual fitness goal in a real sport

the idea that fitness is right-wing is just larping on their part, none of them actually do anything.


You were never a leftist. Why do you come here? Go away.


>I gave up all my political convictions because of make-believe social reasons

you didn't have any political convictions in the first place, nobody cares about your opinion just shut the fuck up


>Used to be a whiney scrawny, unfit moralising faggot
So you used to be a liberal, bully for you

I do get the impression you're still one underneath the posturing



post fizeek


Do you really think I'm seething about this I'm a labourer lad, just got home from work

I've seen other research that suggests that strong working class men tend towards the left and weak ones tend towards the right where for the bourgeois it is the opposite

I wonder whether it's the difference in metrics used actual strength vs upper vs lower body ratios for this study which suggests more narcissism that physical strength

You do actual real physical work and your legs will be tree trunks son


Both problems can be understood as symptomatic of systemic issues, insofar as the underlying pertinence is addressed, the concordant problems will organically whither or taper off.
While it's difficulty to fully assess causes, we can at least be certain of some negatives (i.e. things that don't help, and probably exacerbate issues).
In the case of fascism, an increasingly atomised and economically precarious/directionless youth will be supervened upon by identity politics in the wake of their emptiness. If the promise of said identity politics relates to some notion of inborn/innate superiority for your particular demographic, then it evokes a sense of existential reclamation.

Pedophilia? The media and porn (specifically as far as the fixation on infantilization, i.e. excessive emphasize on the preservation and aesthetic of youthfulness, overly-codified dynamics of submissiveness to the point of sexualized 'cute' docility, don't help. There's even research showing an increase in the likelihood of someone indulging in Cheese Pizza the more depraved and lasting their exposure to porn becomes.


Another fucking thread about this.

And in case some fool wants evidence that I'm not just making shit up about there being movement for fitness among 'the left', this is an established catch-phrase among antifas.

And in case some fool wants to say this is just some bourgeois adventurist burger liberalism (aka antifa), here's evidence that fitness is a pillar of glorious DPRK.

I say it again, why aren't DPRK weightlifters in that video? They're some of the best in the world, record holders.
>antifas are USA or lib or booj
read a book and learn about the world. this is /edu/.


What is the most optimal body type for men? I've heard that being ripped is somewhat bad for you.


Optimal for what? Sitting in front of the computer all day?


Doing cardio eating healthy and having a normal bmi
Bodybuilding is not healthy for the body


if you want to build some muscle mass to be strong or for asthetic reasons thats no problem but do it in a healthy way



You should be able to see your abs in good lighting.


man liberals love giving fascists attention and publicity
