Can I just reiterate my initial stance by saying I hate all of you skinny people.
post #23597 of 47925

yeah consistency is key. Doing a mediocre program for a long time will get you way better results than jumping around between what may be awesome programs and periods of inactivity etc. Maybe one or two people in this thread that i have seen evenlook like they lift, and the E-statting is uhoh.gif (sup fugi post form clip). I would say a large majority of posters would be amazed at what level they could reach by simply lifting heavy ass weight and eating lots of food and resting with purpose. Forget the fucking carb days and all that technical diet shit just eat lots of quality food and lift, it is seriously the only thing that has ever worked (for me) and it will work for anyone up to a point, but that point is a lot bigger and stronger than you would expect... just my 2 cents. foo.gif

Yep, able to go heavy on the upper body now. I think this is a good idea. I could stick to my template and just add some back, shoulders, and arms stuff on deadlift and squat day. This should work because I will still hit my squat and deadlift numbers in my progression even with minimal assistance work.

side note: way too many people itt are using the word "genetics." that word needs to be fucking banned and anyone who says "genetics" in relation to their shortcomings needs to stop now.

Good point, it's a process so you might as well enjoy it.

also i dont know why but heavy deadlifts and squats make a big difference to the way you look in the mirror.

x2 

 

 

10 - 15 pounds more and I'll be there (skinny), but if I didn't constantly cheat I'd been there by now.

having doms and a fever is a bad combo

Not sure if developing tendonitis in elbow or just sore from brocurls.

My back lifts almost never go up, annoying as fuuuuck.

Think I'm going to start my anterior pelvic tilt correction on January 1st, it's a month of hell, weird lifts on lifting days and crazy brutal bodyweight workouts on non-lifting days. Dat core strength (seriously tho it's gonna fucking suck).

Also noticed my second postural problem I'd like to correct is that my shoulders are sort of internally rotated, which makes me walk around looking like a gorilla. It's not terrible but it's noticeable to me.

PS Oats in shakes is fucking delicious

Yeah 4 20kg plate per side is as much as I can get on there. They are so big because the are completely rubber, not just rubber coated like some bumper plates. I've got them for a number of reasons. I work out at home on a carpet-covered concrete floor, so dropping a bar with even the rubber coated bumper plates would break my floor and my bar.  I don't have access to a squat cage, so theoretically I need to be able to safely dump a back squat. Also I clean & jerk pretty regularly, and yes I drop the bar from overhead. 

 

The giant plates aren't really a problem because only my 1rm DL is higher than the 180kg that will fit on the bar. My 1rm squat is getting closer and closer, but I've also got steel plates if I need them.

For all your complaining about aesthetics, you should stop ragging on Crossfit and give it a try. A little conditioning work might do you wonders...

Alright week 8 of SL and I'm throwing in the towel, made decent gains on overhead and bench but miss the feel of doms and my knees are feeling shitty when I've never had knee problems, fuck all this squatting.  Going to a 5/3/1 triumvirate gonna get that hypertrophy back in my life.

post #23606 of 47925
Lul at another person calling me out, already said I'm posting a video next time I squat. It'll be a 75% DE box squat day. A 160kg box squat and a 200kg deadlift is obviously impossible at a body weight of about 190.

The "traditional" bodybuilding split (and what I made a ton of gains on) is Chest and Tri's/Back and Bi's/Legs and Shoulders. DL's on Back day, Squats on Leg day. No assistance on either lift is necessary, and if your #'s are decent, neither is progresion on those lifts.

Just take time off from developing those muscles and focus your energy on building the rest of your body. I know the internet is all squat squat squat deadlift but jesus christ you can lay off the lower body and stop the road to t-rex mode. If you want a bigger upper body then cut the lower body work and just focus on upper body. Your legs and strength are not just going to wither away.

hahahahaha this girl is my friend but jeeezzzz you're dumb.

Anyone else want to ream her out? I will post on your behalf.

Also, take into account that she is, sadly, a nutritional science major.


post #23610 of 47925
Nvm. Rip her apart. Too much protein doesn't cause any of those bad things wtf is she even talking about. Just post "peer reviewed studies plz" and she'll shut the fuck up.

BTW I think it's funny your name is actually spelled that way. I've never seen anyone spell Charley without the e. EDIT: I've never seen anyone spell it Charley now that I think of it, it's always Charlie.



To all: Are back muscles usually slow to weight up, like shoulders are? My shit's moving so slow
