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
THIS HELPS ME SO MUCH
One of the best acrobats from Circus Harmony was tall and fat. He could fly just as gracefully as any of the lithe ‘gymnast-shaped’ performers.
Fun fact about fat, all it is is stored energy. There are two types of energy molecules. which have proper names, but I can never remember which is which, but simply put they are sugar molecules and fat molecules.
Sugar molecules are designed to be broken down into energy immediately, it’s why you get a ‘sugar buzz’ it’s instant energy. It is very hard to get fat from eating sugar alone because it’s not designed to be stored (the only exception is when you are eating way more sugar than your body needs. Any left over sugar will be converted into stored energy usually in the form of fat)
The second type is fat molecules, which are designed to be stored and broken up slowly. It’s used when the body runs out of sugar molecules, so basically fat is your bodies back up generator.
Fat itself is not unhealthy. As long as it’s not in places it shouldn’t be. The obviously places being in organs and your veins and crap. Fat in your organs is a serious health risk, but mostly because fat shouldn’t be there, it normally doesn’t develop there.
Having a lot of fat in your chest area can but a lot of strain on your heart and lungs. But so can a lot of muscle. And huge breasts.
What I’m basically saying is even fucking biochemistry tells us fat is not harmful (unless it’s in the wrong places…which isn’t exclusive to fat either. If tissue starts growing where it’s not meant to, that ain’t good no matter what kind)
So enough with this pretentious ‘fat is unhealthy’ bullshit
baguette-assassin replied to your photo “please don’t tell me miranda and shepard didn’t date before me2…”
like in high school or something and then she brought him back and first thing she says to him “we were supposed to go to prom together asshole!” :D
omg omg and and and like Miri’s an honors student, obviously, cheerleader with a wealthy dad and killer looks, easily the most popular girl in the school, though extremely private; nobody really knows much about her, apart maybe from that quirky Asian girl she’s sometimes seen with (spoiler that’s Kasumi), but then the cold demeanor she gives off is hardly a welcoming feature. Shepard approaches her anyway, they sit next to her in the canteen one day and asks how she’s doing, a question Miranda has never heard before. for the first time in her life, she finds herself at a loss for words. tension building up inside her, she slowly raises her gaze from above her book and gives Shepard an icy glare with an eyebrow raise, half hoping it’s enough to scare the intruder away. he seems completely unfazed by this response, however, as he flashes her a crooked smile, pulls out a huge sandwich from his bag and proceeds to eat, ignoring the huge drops of what Miranda takes for mayonnaise falling on his frayed jacket. she’d normally have stood up and left ages ago but this goofy-looking guy is something different
please don’t tell me miranda and shepard didn’t date before me2 because they did and it was adorkable as heck
