STYLE THREAD | Ask Radical

What do you think of fossil watches? I have one, they're pretty stylish for the price, the boxes they come in are really cool too. I think outside of the top watch brands like Rolex, AP, Omega etc that actually carry a bit of prestige or 'wow' factor it really just comes down to personal preference...

The Phoenix Project: MAC Rising From The Ashes To Be Born Again (AA Program Week 1 Day Attempt 6)

If you're going to do the hair transplant. I don't think it makes sense to wait. My dad had it done, it definitely works, but it really takes some time after the procedure for it to be a benefit. I don't have any first hand knowledge of it, but he is super dilligent/OCD doctor and flew to Turkey to ...

The Phoenix Project: MAC Rising From The Ashes To Be Born Again (AA Program Week 1 Day 6 Failed 5th Time)

SMV is king and before you're totally maxed out, it is a grinder of an existence where every day is pure hustle. Hah. It really does seem like in today's culture there 99% of the rewards come after crossing the finish line. think I could do like 45mins of just the time drills while deeply letting g...

Dopamine detox for mental health

I know this is contrarian, but all the detox stuff to me is complete nonsense. The only sustainable way to do bad things less is by doing good things more. Focus on doing the things you should be doing, set thresholds you have to meet. If you meet those, do whatever the hell you want in the short ti...

Book Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi?

I read both due to see it recommended so many times. Rational Male - Interesting ideas and cultural analysis, but ultimately its garbage. Virtually no actionable information. There are some interesting insights into modern culture, but I'm not sure what utility they have other than serving as justif...

Spider’s Progress Log 🕷 Day 94: Push-Ups and Sit ups: Confronting my body image issues 🪞⚔️

I'm 100% behind you wanting to improve yourself physically. However, the push and situp goals are not particularly effective tools for accomplishing that. Even if your goal was increasing your push ups and situps only, there are far, far more effective training strategies than doing 1 set per day an...

On the path to a better self

That's an extreme example, but I agree that when you believe what you do has meaning it can trump any amount of hardship or pain. I also agree you really cannot just decide to love yourself unconditionally. It is a stupid meme devoid of truth. You can absolutely, definitely decide to stop treating y...

Gain muscle or lose fat? Unsure what I should be doing

Yes. You should be doing weight training year round, regardless of what your goals happen to be at the time. It should be a lifestyle, not a temporary prescription. At least that's my opinion. You can try to lose some weight or maintain while you start. In the immediate short term, it would be bette...
