Dave tate uses smith machine for incline bench, jus sayin.


Spastics in the gym today. Some guy was doing 10x10 front squats and asked me how I train my squat. I said 5x2 and I max out every set. Told me how olympic powerlifters (what is this I don't even know) only max out every 8 weeks, was not sure if serious. Brb maxing out twice a day. Then he told me about how important peri workout nutrition is and showed me all his supplements. I guess T nation has to sell to someone. He was over 100kg and front squatting the same weight I was using for lying tricep extensions.

Also had another retard doing smith machine half squats with gloves, chalk and tampon. He was backing into the bar to set up as well. Never seen that before, why would you do that? Like what logic was he following?


40kg per arm on incline db for 7. Next dbs are 42.5kg and are gypsey as fuck. Made by the gym owner. I probably won't use them, might just stay on 40s until uni and hope my gym has bigger dbs (not likely).

No, I'm just saying that's where I'm making my slowest gains. Legs, abs are shaping up nicely.

Box Squat 2x6 same weight heavy , then 1x20 lighter weight but very hard
Seated Hamstring Curl 20-30rp
I lift 3x/wk so I get through the whole cycle every two weeks.

Guessing I'm gonna get trolled hard for posting all this.
I just meant it's nuts that you do 3 upper body days. I get bored as fuck doing just one.

I'd do it about every 5 days.
I'll probably keep up the routine at about that pacing because i can do most of it without injuring myself (flat bench is okay as long as i don't crunch up when it gets heavy).
If you really want to build, be an actual bro and lay off on lower body stuff (if your only goal is to get dem aesthetics). Up your caloric intake too (dat bro-tein) and soon your shirts will be straining at the buttons eason-style.
Eh, it's not just about aesthetics for me. I actually enjoy squat days more than upper body and like leg work way more (plus it helps my knee issues). I just want better upper body aesthetics. I should probably change my schedule to have 2x upper every week instead of just one. hrm.

In that case yeah do 2 upper body days-bench/DB row one day, incline bench/pullup the other day, and split te accessory exercises however you want.

Not really a bb curl, probably a bad description.

For all you guys noming on raw almonds, I'd recommend soaking them first - soak em in salted water overnight then dry them in the oven at like 150 - takes care of the phytic acid and gut irritants so you can eat more of em without jacking up your gut.

Never heard of this, but I'll give it a try.

I've got some soaking in water in the fridge right now for tomorrow. Soaked raw almonds are great. I know that's how Persians eat them, soak them and peel them, which I don't do as the skins don't bother me. Why use salt though?

post #18943 of 46128
I still have weird muscle spasm in my shoulders when I lift my hand overhead. I wonder how much it would cost to get a doctor to lOok at it with my shitty insurance.

Experience matters a lot here. You are pretty new to lifting, so you still make gains very quickly. I'm not sure that this is really about olympic lifters so much as it is about elite lifters. Remember it's always about forcing the adaptation, and then allowing time to recover. When you are young, new, and squatting 300lbs, this recovery can happen a lot faster than if you are older, very experienced, and squatting 650lbs. When you need to lift that sort of wait to force an adaptation, recovery takes a long ass time. 8 weeks seems a little on the long side, but probably not as much as you think.

The strongest barbell clubs in the world do have max effort days, and don't max out every week.
