I thought the characteristic movement of the Olympic squat is that you drop into it as fast as you can?

Not mirin your aorta brah. Feelsbadman frown.gif

I didn't start getting good biceps growth until I started doing standing barbell curls with full ROM. The people who tell you to do nothing but SS shit and GOMAD don't realize that not everyone is training to be a power lifter and that way of doing things is pretty shitty if you're looking for aesthetics. Most people would benefit from squatting more and curling less, but TBH from an aesthetics standpoint you only need your legs and ass to be big enough to create a balanced physique and anything larger will look awkward and make your upper body look even smaller.

Cliffs: time to ditch just doing compounds and get on a proper aesthetics routine like PHAT

How come women dont understand the concept of eating protein?

Her: Just got back from LPQ, they only had split pea soup and chili

Me: Which one did you get?

Her: Chili because I figured it had more protein

Me: Did it have meat in it?

Her: No, all their soups are vegan.

Aorta is still in the normal range, maybe a bit high can't remember. I pretty much only have the skeletal and postural marfans shit, which I've corrected pretty well with lifting, like I can wrap my thumb half way around the back of my hand. I think I have the retinal shit too, can't remember. Started training with my mate who won his age group in the UKs biggest natural body building fed for bodybuilding and the one where they where shorts. Doing push/pull/legs twice a week, much higher reps, much more volume, much shorter rest periods and shit like rear delt flys, which feel orgasmic. Feels weird, even though his legs look much bigger then mine, can out squat him even in the 10-12 rep range by fuck loads.

Yeah last I remember about your routine it involved ridiculous 15 minute rests between box squats or some shit? I'm glad to hear you've switched your routine to something more in tune with your goals.

The one with shorts is men's physique. I refuse to compete in it even though TBH I'd do better in it since all they care about is abs and arms and disregard wheels.

Nah only about 10 minutes rest on ME day box squats, rest will probably be similar to that if I decide to work up to a set of 20 on monday. Basically was 1 day of speed doubles in a 3 week wave and 1 day of doing a lower body max movement, which I thought I could progress at and before that it was just doing doubles at 90% pretty much everyday and some upper body shit when I wasn't tired. Yeah he was really against competing in the physique contest, only did it because the directors of the competition asked him to because there weren't enough competitors. Weird as fuck guy, does all his posing to heavy metal and he's thinking of wearing a mask for his next competition.

15 would have been far too extreme.

whats the point of those balance boards?

There is this one super skinny middle eastern guy in his 20s at my gym, who ONLY does 10 % ROM biceps curls with the heaviest dumbbells he can lift, standing on a balance board. Or he has one more move, the seated chest press machine, where he puts on pretty much all the weight and again does 10 % rom "lifts", involving pretty much only his shoulders. wtf. Its like he´s unable to learn from observing other what other people does...

The balance boards are to help strengthen your ankles and core.

Well I found that when sitting in a deep squat on them your balance gets really shit and the board starts shaking uncontrollably, which felt kind of like a message for my glutes and hamstrings.
