is mixed grip a meme? I'm going to take my double overhand deadlift as high as possible then go to double overhand with straps
Whats the best calorie calculator? I'm trying to find out how much I should eat to lose weight.
i started working out again after a few weeks break (fucking family vacation is THE ULTIMATE gains goblino) and when i was doing biceps they became so fucking pumped that i couldnt even bring them up to a 180 degree angle. after that point i couldnt barely even curl half of what i fucking normally curl and my arms could barely contract. i felt so embarassed to even pick up fucking 12.5's. did i really lose THIS many gains?
also, how fast should i be progressing on curls? EZbar for example. my biceps are getting bigger but im not progressing in weight at all. does it matter? how long does it take to work up from lets say a 50 to a 60 for 10 reps if i do biceps twice a week. thanks negros
IS THERE A REAR DELT WORKOUT USING ONLY DUMBBELLS?
not a meme
your welcome everyone
Can I still grow taller?
187 cm (dad)
164 cm (mom)
rear delt flies, rear delt swings, all overhead pressing variations
Try hookgrip and only use straps on high rep, high weight.
Yes, face pulls
can i make a career out of personal training?
if it's such a hard profession to retain clients why do all the shitty looking personal trainers with meme workouts succeed at it?
Should I take the onion pill?
What's a good 3 or 4 day program that will have me doing the major lifts 2x per week each? (Squat, Bench, OHP, and two back exercises)
Need a routine lads. Dont know where to start and i dont know who to trust.
it can create muscle imbalances(on your traps for example) which will fuck you up on all your lifts and posture
so my friendly advice would be to use chalk or hookgrip(if you handle the thumb pain)
t. did it myself and eventually pulled the same weight with no chalk
no clue but tip is if you workout a few times per week(3x or sometimes even more) you should put sedentary on activity level, if you do something else outside lfiting then light or even moderate depending on the intensity
acessory work takes longer, look into linear periodization
if your bone plates havent closed yet sure, on averae you can possibly grow till your 23 or simply stop on your 14s
no one can answer that
why not, theyre amazing to put on salads which should be consumed daily
arugula opens up your veins for better workouts and pumps due to nitrates

So tomorrow I'm planning to call a doctor to check out my blood exams but I figured out in the meantime why not ask random strangers on an animu vietnamese imageboard?
I checked online and it highlights in red what's supposed to be out of the normal values, also the names might not be 100% correct since I used google translate

Literally do not do this unless you compete. There is no sense in permanently fucking up your thumbs over "hurrdurr but my muscular imbalances"
I row which has granted me massive gains in certain areas but at the same time has left my chest and upper arms disproportionately small compared to my back/legs/core
I started working out my arms and upper body once a week on top of practices and team "lifts" but how many reps should i do? i'm doing 3x12 for most of them but i have no idea what the key for "lean" muscle and "big" muscle is
also i'm a 6'3 lanklet so it's kinda hard to tell if anything is getting bigger
Was doing a front squat 2rm and felt a tweak in my mid to upper back, I'm not too concerned because I've gotten this before, just need to stretch and foam roll it, but I'm curious biomechanically how is it possible to hurt your upper back during front squats? Did I just not brace enough? Not even like the weight was coming down
I have scoliosis btw so it could've totally just been an interaction with my fucked up spine/muscles
1.) Assuming proper nutrition, when do the gains begin for a newb?
2.) How do you best measure progress
kek source please
I've heard the whole "6 reps for hypertrophy 12 for endurance" but that was what my dad taught me.
3sets of 12 reps is a good way to do things though, but if you want to gain size faster increase the weight so you can't do so many and eat more.
Anything lower than 7 is to light. Anything less than 20 is not enough volume. Do 5 set of heavy triples one day. Speedy sets of 25 other days and stop when speed of bar lowers. Not failing reps
Am I supposed to consciously use my scapulae when doing rows?
pull with your elbows
this guy says his workout is only pushups,dips and squats and abs, doing like 1000 of each each day.
is that possible or is that one of his multiple personalities talking?
Lots of my body parts hurt and my joints click after only 4 months of training. Is it a sign of overtraining?
6 days a week by the way
Whats the story on blaha? Was he not a delutional cuck for a while? leddit seemed to worship him for a while. His channel now hides subs, did that happen after norton stuff?
If I workout 3 days of the week(AXBXCXX), should I take supplements (bcaa, creatine, whey etc) only on the days I workOut or everyday?
Pussy. You don't fuck up your thumbs at all. Just put them further way from your pointer and middle finger when you go to grab the bar.
How can you develop the lower back without deadlifts?
definitely the retard personality talking
for a while
Hemingway was always a crazy, attention-whoring faggot. He just makes videos of himself reloading ammo in his faggy hat, desperately drying to stoke up controversy with people that actually matter.
Coming august my schedule will be extremely tight, and i'll be changing to a 24h gym so i can keep lifting, but from 4:30-6:00am, and i'll prob be working and having classes well into the night, 10-11pm
How bad will this be to my gains? should i keep on a U/L routine or change to a Full body?
how important is footwear for squats if you just started training? can I just wear tennis shoes? I can 1rm lmao2plate on squat, want to get it up to 3 ASAP so I don't look like such a pussy
Weighted hyper extensions. Squat variations.
When doing ss what should you do for warm up. Usually I do (bench example) bar 2x5 10 (1*5) 25(1*5) 35(1*5) and the my work sets. Is this proper?
use flat shoes like vans and allstars
squat shoes like adipowers are optional, not really needed at all unless you want to get serious and compete or some shit.
Read the sticky. I started on SL (not the recommended starting weights obviously), but quickly switched to the novice variation of 5/3/1 because it just wasn't enough for me.
I cant always make the jumps in SS. Should I just try untill I do or de load?
My program has be deloading by 10% if I fail a lift. I just failed 210 bench. Do I have to deload 10%, or can I just bench 205 followed by 210 again?
Google "starting strength how to warm up". I'm not even kidding. Rippetoe has covered this many times.
Thanks. Should I do any stretching?
Does creatine help with long distance running? I'm working up to a 10k and am curious if it helps at all with anything related to aerobic endurance.
Programing is not much more then mental masturbation. Just go hard for 1-7 reps for strength and bench 2-3days a week, squat 1-3 and deadlift 1-2. Go for the pump for hypertrophy
Take BCAA and whey every day and take creatine when you workout. Creatine loading is a meme.
No not really, the energy you get from creatine is almost entirely anaerobic.
Don't waste whey you retards, only take it when you won't be able to hit your macros with food
and BCAA are a meme
Thanks my man
Well, bcaa helps with the pain, maybe its just a placebo now
If I'm grossly overweight (like 100 lbs or so of fat to lose), can I get away with a huge caloric deficit at the start? Would it make sense to try to lose 3-4 lbs a week for the first few months, or not really?
What should progression be like coming back from a layoff? I squatted for the first time in 6 months and was able to do 115 for 8 reps and 3 sets with some reps left in the tank. My previous best before my injury was like 190 for 3x5.
Should I do any strecthing?
If I have a virus and fever, should I skip tomorrows workout and just sleep in? Or should I man up and make sure to stay extra hydrated?
I just turned 18 and Im still a virgin. I ship out to basic soon. Should I pay a whore?
100 is a lot to lose, but you're still human worth a regular bmr and TDEE. 3-4 lbs a week is completely unrealistic, 2 lbs is fine. Aim for a 1000 calorie deficit and reduce it to 750 once you hit 24%
is 5x10 deadlifts against the law?
BCAAs are kind of a meme, but they do speed up recovery. If you're lifting heavy you'll be building most of your muscle on rest days so it's beneficial to take it every day.
the reason I think it's realistic is that I plan on walking for 45 minutes every day, and I'm 6'3'' so I have a pretty high TDE anyways.
i'm still a complete beginner who's only been fucking around with cardio and dumbbells while losing weight. given that, i have to ask, am i just a weak bitch for struggling with lateral raises over 15 lbs or are they usually this hard?
Just got a planet fitness membership, currently at 210, what are some good machines to help lose the fat
i'm also a weak bitch but from what i've ready, lateral raises are supposed to be done with really low weight as it works a very small muscle
*from what i've read
No you don't you retard. Walking for 40 minutes is like maybe like 300 calories at best.
3-4 a week isn't realistic when though you're fat. If you are super obese maybe, but just 100 isn't enough.
Usually that hard, although you'll still progress in weight eventually. Make sure the weight is light enough that you can control it on the way down.
don't I? The apps in the sticky say my TDEE should be around 3000. I could easily eat under 1500 kcals a day.
Walking for 40 minutes is like maybe like 300 calories at best.
Not even. I'd say 180-200 max.
What the fuck is this?
Chink in Canada got mad that they were going to open up modular housing project in the area, lowering the profit of his Chinese money laundering 'investment', so he decided kick a librarian at a public discussion about it.
i am literally crying from laughter
I have been eating 5 cups of oatmeal a day for the past 4 days (plus daily meals). Is that enough to bulk up or am I just fucking myself up for no reason?
no, you should really eat 1kg oatmeal a day minimum on a bulk
you need at least a 3000 calorie surpluss
1k calori = 10 gram muskel
Makes sense, th-thanks...
if you're serious, you need to find your TDEE and eat like 500 calories above it
5 cups of oats is what, 1500 cals?
How to look aesthetic with wide hips if I am a male
since nobody answered me for the third time
can i switch to PHUL now looking for size since GSLP didnt offer any to me
STATS 5'9 161lb (cut down from 170lb)
BENCH - 160lb
OHP - 100lb
SQUAT - 185lb
keep in mind i deloaded a few of these lifts because i didnt feel my muscles being worked but i feel like doing PHUL would really benefit for gains (PS i know my squat and deadlift suck but my legs are bigger than upper body and i want to aim for more upper body devlopment which my upperbody lifts are intermediate for most part)
train shoulders and get big
Pullups everyday. Overhead Press. Handstand pushups. Also, squats.
How the fuck do you heal a sore glute cheek? I was doing those leg on a bench and you do a lunge for the first time with low ass weight and now my cheek is mad sore.
You don't, and you shouldn't. Keep it at a 1000 deficit max
Should I be eliminating cards entirely? Or is some bread or rice with dinner ok?
Is there any kind of "couch to 5k" for the Saitama workout? I'm going from 0 physical activity here and can't do 50 pushups yet, so 100/100/100/10 seems a little out of my reach right now.
Is there any kind of formula for ftlbs to kcal burned? I would like to know how many I'm burning at least.

How do I fix anxiety Veeky Forums?
I get panic attack on the daily. I feel like I'm dying it having a stroke or something. nothing specific really triggers it.
However, today a girl at my job had a siezure. I've never witnessed one and I had no idea how to help her. I had the biggest anxiety attack ive had in a long time after that. It was so bad I could barley drive home. I had to pull over multiple times. Am I just a giant pussy?
How do I fix anxiety Veeky Forums?
I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks, tried two things
1. anxiety meds which fucked me up really, REALLY hard
2. lifting and eating healthy
the option 2 worked perfectly, now I get one once in like half a year or some shit and I can control it, and it's usually when I smoke weed, what caused them in first place
who am I supposed to check my blood and test levels with? got the results from an independent lab
Why do you guys keep memeing about thumbless grip when your thumb won't save you?
I've tried the meds before. They made me not care about anything.
I lift 4-5 days a week but my diet is shit. Weed used to give me INTESNSE panic attacks. It sucks cause I used to really love weed. I haven't smoked in like 6 months though and my panic attacks are daily.
I was considering going to the doctor tomorrow for it but they probably just prescribe me more junk.
No, regardless of your age. Keep working on yourself. Your virginity is only a problem because you think having sex will change your life at all, it won't.
Anxiety is understandable in that situation. Usually exposure therapy helps, but that's not really something you can apply to this. I recommend you take a first aid course, if you haven't already, and be ready for the next time something similar happens. At least you won't be helpless then.
get professional help
tell them meds don't work
they'll prescribe you junk and a psychologist which will end up just memeing you out money
just keep lifting, do some cardio once or twice a week, eat healthy seriously cant stress this enough, get a lot of vegetables and fruits on your diet, should be your staple alongside meats and fish, eggs are the best too.
also you have to think positive, this thing is extremely underrated and definitely works, think you're ok and that nothing will happen, and if you feel you're starting to have an attack simply breathe and relax since that shit isn't harmful in any way, once you learn this you'll begin to control them to the point you feel them coming and realize its just anxiety and that youre gonna be ok and it just goes away
I've never seen anything like that in my life, but what will save you is safety stands and adjusting them to the level just below your inflated chest. You can also floor press, which gives you 8.25" of room and you can put plates or anything else under the weights to to raise it up.
He likely had terrible grip strength.
Why am I stalling so hard? I just failed to BB row 135 for a set of 5. I weighed 187 lbs when I went into the gym. I was so disgusted I just went home.
It took me 3 years to get 1/2/3/4. Yeah my diet and programming were pretty meh the whole way, but this is just ridiculous. I started to cut because I hated the way I looked, and everything went to shit. My muscles deflated, my strength VANISHED within a few weeks, and I don't look any better. I count my calories and am cutting at 2.2k. For some reason I just ballooned up to 190 in 2 days out of fucking nowhere when I recently weighed 182 in the morning.
I'm losing my fucking mind, Veeky Forums. I can now only bench 2pl8 ONCE and I haven't even lost any weight apparently, even though I've been eating significantly less. I have a physical as fuck job that has me running up and down stairs and lifting shit all day, and I switched to 5/3/1 and just finished the first cycle. I shouldn't be fatter than I was before my cut. It's like I lost my muscle and strength in 3 fucking weeks. Walking back into the gym at the weight I started while having a 10% drop in strength seriously has me considering suicide.
Wtf guys. Do I need to see an endocrinologist? I'm 5'11 and broad but with a weak AF jaw. Maybe I'm just a low test faggot.
Will I get into Stanford Friday? I just got hit with even more rejections and I really don't want to take a gap year or stay at UTD
I try to tell myself that. I get them everyday and nothing bad happens.
But when they do happen I feel like I'm actually dying. I get a rush of adrenaline up my arm and face and convince myself I'm having a stroke or something. I can't explain it but my symptoms are very physical.
I can't explain it but my symptoms are very physical.
I know exactly how you feel since I had the same too, scary stuff.
it's osmething that takes time to heal, took me quite some time and during that time I was in highschool and the teachers wouldnt even let me leave the class, truly awful
Seems I went a little bit overboard. That explains the constant restroom visits. Thank you.
So what do I do if I start getting stalled on SS because I'm a fatass eating at a deficit? Just keep working with those weights to lose weight or start eating more again to not lose strenght?
anyone have that video of the european guys being total retards at the gym? it's like a classic and i need to show someone.
Do you have any tips?
I've been trying to work on my breathing when it happens. It helps since my muscles get super tense. Also I found laying on my back on a hardwood floor does wonders. But I can really only do that at home.
Jesus, I hated applying to graduate programs. I got into one out of the 15 I applied to (7 the first time, and 8 the second time). Such a fucking clusterfuck. It's completely random. I had professors tell me "you're awesome, you want to work on amazing things, so I'm going to get you into our Ph.D. program". Then, that prof wasn't given a choice that year because they have brought a bunch of students in and the rest of the faculty wanted to give other people a chance. Then some other programs thought one of my interests was just too weird for them. And most programs gave me absolutely no feedback besides "no".
Fuck that noise. Instead, I got a 6-figure job in my old field and now make more than almost every professor who has ever taught me. I fucking hate it, but it pays.
Good luck. Rejection sucks.
Dieting can lower testosterone and make you weaker than you are normally, even at the same weight. Weight shouldn't fluctuate that much. It could have been a problem with a scale but you should still go down in weight in the next few days. Weigh yourself every day when you wake up, after taking a piss and create a rolling average so you know what's really happening.
You may have a undeveloped back, if you've been doing beginner programs, but I think some of the lack of strength is in your head, seriously. Strength is half subconscious and it depends on what your CNS allows you to lift. They've done studies where they have given people placebo, told them it was fact acting steroids and their lifts went up by 10%. They then told them it was fake and it returned to normal. Get your head on straight.
it's more of a mental thing, if you think you're really going to have a stroke then your body is going to believe and you freak out
you just have to keep positive thoughts on how you're fine
no one has ever died or had any kind of harm from that.
aid that with a good diet, lift, sleep at least 8h and try to be as much stress free as possible
there's no secret to it and I strongly suggest to not use drugs, both pharma and weed shit
Thanks user. Ive been pamicing all day and your post helped.
Mostly just knowing I'm not the only person who has experienced this.
But I do weighted pulls and chins with a plate for 6-8... I had a DL max of 450. Can my back really still be that shit?
I have naturally big legs and I'm trying to gain 10 pounds of mass, how much would it hurt me in terms of time it takes to gain that weight if I train them less than the other muscle groups? If you have overdeveloped muscles in one area of your body do they grow at the same proportion as your other muscle groups or less so?
milk truck just arrive
Conventional deadlifts don't seem to do much for lats. Pull ups do, obviously but it's a new movement so it takes some time getting used to. It's similar to people who have a massive leg press thinking they should be able to squat a lot. It doesn't work that way.
5x135 is a 157 one rep max. Around 173 is intermediate level. Give it a few weeks.
Critique my diddly form
just out of curiosity how long does it take your strength to fully recover after a session? Cause I tried to test 1RM about 4 hours after my lifts (dumb) and couldn't lift even my normal weight
Is it relevant that I do my rows without resting? Like I don't put the barbell on the ground once until the set is done. I do them very near parallel. I don't even know what they're called.
you're picking the bar up instead of shoving your ass forward under the bar. You're also mad tall with long arms doing conventional. If you're serious about getting weight on teh bar I'd switch ot Sumo.
You don't rest? Wtf is wrong with you if you are using a weight that is actually heavy you'll need rest...
Read again. I don't touch the barbell to the ground between repetitions. Is this retarded? This is how I was taught to row.
Yah that's a bent over row. On the pendlay row touching the bar on the ground isn't for rest it's to have the weight at a dead stop for the next rep.
Its just doms.
Usually they should return to the floor, although I'm sure plenty of people cheat their form with more back angle, but holding it in the air could mean you can do less than if you start them from the floor.
Alright bros, I just got a new job that requires alot of walking and I've never walked this much before.
Recently I noticed that I feel sharp pain right into he middle of my foot, I checked and see a small crack in the middle. Is there a way to alliviate the pain? And how to prevent it from worsening?
I already got some running shoes on for my work so there's that.
I always feel my wrists rotating to get the bar to my body when I try to do them this way.
I'll give sumo a shot, I usually rack pull below the knee but sumo seems good
you're picking the bar up instead of shoving your ass forward under the bar.
Not the guy you're responding to, but I'm trying to understand what you're saying here. Do you basically just mean more leg drive?
I'm also trying to improve my deadlift
I don't know. Maybe the bar is hitting too far forward. Move and back and see if it helps. Pendlay Rows have the weights resting on the ground longer between reps and usually they don't fulling touch the chest because the weight is heavier.
Hell, try an inverted row. They have more EMG activity and seem to be closer to pull ups.
how do strength gains compare from hypertrophy to strength training? from what i understand if youre doing hypertrophy, you would LOOK stronger and have fuller muscles then someone who does strength training but that person would be stronger? If anyone has photos of strength training and hypertrophy physiques i would appreciate it.
also, i want big muscles, a nice lean physique and strength. im currently doing hypertrophy and im my muscles are looking much bigger but my actual strength isnt increasing all that much. if i switch to a strength routine would i look smaller then i would on hypertrophy but be stronger? it quite confuses me
Think I figured it out. Grip is far too wide.
Is a 15.5 inch neck good? I'm 5'10 195 lb and my neck is thickest at 17 and narrowest at 15.5.
Would substituting leg press for squat in my workout weaken my squat over time?
I don't intend on fully substituting leg press for squat, but I leg press in place of squat when all the squat racks are full
Is it a good idea to engage the people you live with in your fitness journey?
You might be a little rusty if you don't squat for a while but I doubt that you would lose any serious muscle mass as long as you keep up the intensity
Who's lying to me, the mirror or my phone? Why do I look good in the mirror then take a photo and suddenly look like shit in the photo? I'm thinking of sueing Samsung for defamation over this
I live with my family, and they order pizza once a week.
They order the kind of pizza where the only other choice is chicken wings.
This is my #1 diet vice, how do I stop doing this to myself every week? What am I supposed to say to my family? I DON'T WANT TO KEEP EATING PIZZA ANYMORE REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Don't eat it then. Eat something else
just don't eat that much lmao
don't be an autist and be nice to ure family senpai
some people have better results with it than with hook grip
you only need to do either if you compete, otherwise straps are fine when your double overhand gives out
imbalances are a fucking meme, though. just do double overhand for as many warmups and working sets as you can before switching to mixed if you do use it for competition, otherwise straps if lifting for looks or athletics
it literally does not fucking matter

you can do this with lyle mcdonald's generic bulking routine
yuge amounts of isometric tension in your back, it happens, because of how the weight must be held there is little direct support without the bracing
that's part of the reason why fronts are such a great all-round exercise and a good auxiliary for your deadlift

he did do that as a little kid, and he kept up doing that in his own time, but he also did a lot of resisted sprints (towing a tire behind him on the field) and you can bet your ass that when he played in high school and college they had that nigger in the weight room
at the start it's not important at all. once the weights get heavy in a couple of months, you'll want to do what said

Is this normal or am I starting to bald? I'm 24, my father isn't bald and neither was my grandfather
6'0", 171 lbs
Pretty sure I am at least 22% body fat, I've got a gut and man tits.
How feasible is fasting and lifting? I have thought about cutting but I don't like the concept of losing only 1 pound a week. Sounds slow as fuck, especially since I am guessing I need to get down to like 150 lbs to start not looking like trash so I can bulk.
yeah maybe switch to sumo. the idea is to have your lower back straight and its clearly not here. your butt should be way lower than that at the start of the lift
is 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight a meme?
find a substitute lift, some people aren't made for dips
cut to 1/2 and try it out first
how's your dad's head look from that angle?
fasting is retarded
unless you're talking about "intermittent fasting" aka "skipping breakfast"
aim for 1-2lbs a week and suck it up
go ahead and start lifting now though as it will help make sure the weight you lose is mostly fat and not muscle
it's legit for natties who work out and aren't on severe weight loss diets
maybe up it if you're cutting weight fast
maybe double it if you're /fraud/
Absolute fucking scrub here
How do I break plateau? Been maxed out at 9x130 on bench press for a couple of months now and today slid back to eight reps. People say to change up the exercise but I don't really know enough to deviate from the routine, I feel like.
I'm slowing down on other exercises but still eventually make progress, but it's like I ran into a brick wall on bench

I have this huge imbalance in my shoulders / upper back, ever since I broke my right collarbone in 2014..it was always alright, but the last couple of months I really start to notice it. In 2015 I kinda pinched sth in my left trap, and this again is really bugging me out since a few months..
I have ostheoartritis in my left knee, idk how this plays into the whole thing.
Took a picture of my back yesterday and the right trap is just sagging compared to the left one. Never knew it was that bad
Thing is, it feels like my left side of the back / rear delt is weaker. After looking at the picture I'm not so sure about this anymore.
Some ligaments on my right front delt are really "sticky" / clotty.
Yeah, I should have went to doctors / physiotherapists earlier. I did, but most of them just tell you some random bullshit..nevertheless, I will again go to one next week.
I just look like some undefined blob, idk what to do brehs. Shrug till there is no tomorrow? I just want to look good and symmetrical
I just squatted 2 pl8 for 5 reps, is that good?
Roger, it'd be cool if it's that simple
At a very young age my left hand's fingers were sliced off and even though they were reattached, my thumb's nerves got fucked up so I can't bend it anymore. Would this affect any lifting? I can't really form a proper fist.
I would honestly feel real bad if I knew a member of Veeky Forums killed themselves even though I post kys from time to time
The only happy tears I've had in too long. Thanks user. I'm weak and want to live but I'm so close to ending it.....you give me hope in life
We're all gonna make it brah
Strangers on the Internet made me pull that round out of the chamber. There really are good people in this timeline
if ure going to be a sadcunt, you can atleast be a huge sadcunt
Dumbbell bench presses for a while. Causes even better contraction of the pecs since your hands come together at the top of the movement. Do that for a month, then try barbell bench again.
3 sets is better
Nah, fuck that. You're a sick cunt if you wanna be. So want it.
pick any combination
deload and work back up
try a different set/rep scheme,
I have been lifting 2 years and not made much progress. I'm 185cm and 15% body fat, I used to be less but on my current 'bulk' I've put on fat so abs are barely visible now. My deadlift is 110kg for 4, I can only front squat 50kg for 5, I can OHP 50 for 1 and I can bench 70kg for 3, pretty fucked up lifts I have no idea why my squat is so bad. I eat properly (3100 per day right now) but I can't seem to gain mass or improve my lifts.
Will going right back to the beginning and doing something like stronglifts 5x5 still work for me or have my muscles adapted even if they haven't strengthened? That program suggests starting a 50% of your 5 rep max. Should I do this or is there a better novice/weakling/genetic retard program?
I feel that landmine chest press really helped all my upper body pushes.
seems like a classic case of not progressively overloading properly
yes, do SL (+ accesories) and follow the program EXACTLY (except maybe to yates rows instead of bent over rows)
any good stretches for tight hips?
We’re all gonna make it brah
I probably will, I hope adding weight each training session will work as it says but I'm worried that any muscle I have now will disappear in the weeks that it takes me to go from 50% of my 5rm back up to the weight I'm lifting for 5 reps now. All that I've done until now has had much more deadlift volume too, I don't understand how 1x5 per week could be enough when all I've ever heard is volume and frequency.
Whats a "good" bent over row? With respect to 1/2/3/4
EAT ONIONS AND DRINK MILK
How many pl8s until the autism goes away?
Been out of the gym for 3 months due to injury. Been running however for a while instead. State police just changed their fitness requirements tp involve weighted vests.
What're the benefits of training with one? Will I just burn a fuck tonne of calories? I'm about to start bulking
something very close 2pl8
Anyone got a libk to the .pdf of Greyskull LP?
Yesterday i went to a party and drink 5 beers, that is 800 kcal and returned home and ate bread with butter, thats around 800 kcal too, how this fucked my process of cut? I feel really bad about it dammit all effort for nothing, this fucked too much my cut? pic related is me
What is ss gomad?
Also why do I have pelvis pain when I squat on a smith machine vs barbell?
Sore muscles and now I can't even move my arms around... any tips? I would like to work out this afternoon.
should my shoulders hurt when doing front squats from the weight? does it take some getting used to or am i doing it wrong?
why is my test so high after I stopped being sjw
I haven't stopped being sore since I started working out, do I not have enough protein in my diet?
Something really fucked up happened here and his spotter has shit reflexes.
What can one say other than don't be fucking retarded while benching, its the number one way to end up in the hospital or dead.
Most generic issue ever; I suck off the floor with pull work. If it moves, I complete the lift.
93kg bodyweight, 6'0"
210kg conventional DL
305kg rack pull
what I do to fix?
Are there any good exercises for building up back muscles or something? What am I doing wrong I keep getting back pain after lifting.
do deficit and snatchgrip deadlifts
how are my testosterone levels?
402 ng/dl total test
1.09 ng/dl free test
22 year old male in shape
why the fuck would you even care about something autistic like that
because for a long time I've been feeling depressed and without energy to do anything despite having a healthy lifestyle and a qt gf.
I don't want to feel like each day I'm simply waiting to die
I researched and it's supposed to be symptoms of low T
get an apollos belt, a wide fooken back and a pair of jooci quads
Is there any reason I need to change my routine when I switch from cutting to bulking?
Currently doing an upper/lower split with reverse pyramids on big lifts and high rep/pump work isolation moves. I’ve been sperging looking for a bulking routine but not sure I really need to do anything except eat more and try to drive weights up
Is it normal to have a dry mouth everytime I wake up?
How much do pull ups work the chest and tris?
I was thinking of abandoning push/pull and doing a thrice a week upper body day of push ups, pull ups, and dips. Would this be better?
Yes, but don't do steroids and don't cut super hard.
