post #24061 of 48534
I'm loving my bodybuilding split, high rep lateral raises and rear delt flys feel amazing. Only thing i'm not enjoying is high rep squats. Sets of 12 with 225lb and very short rests feel shit, just holding onto the bar for that long is annoying. Everything feels more full though, mainly hip flexors, hamstrings (dem 15 rep RDLs feel good man) and upper back muscles even though my pull ups have gone down, but that could be because of the very short rest periods. Only did strength training for over a year so results should be good.


Saw someone at the gym super setting bodyweight squats, kipping pull ups and back extensions whilst wearing a gas mask. So many crosstards at the military gym. Also had some sickening sleep paralysis today. Had my post workout nap, realised I was dreaming, decided to wake up and it felt like someone was sitting on my chest and I couldn't move, scary as fuck. Also PHAT is a great hypertrophy program, why you no like?

I don't mean to be snarky, but it seems rather counter-productive (and weird way to go about it) to skip a short daily routine only to eventually having to do a workout from hell to correct it. The daily stretching might not get rid of your problems completely but you def won't be better off skipping it.

My posture problems have existed since before lifting and have not gotten any worse aside from increased internal shoulder rotation due to an early and recurring imbalance in chest/back workouts that I recently corrected.

Also, I do stretch, I just don't do warm up sets when I lift.

You def don't have complete mobility right when you walk in the gym. If your good you train in mobility that is past your usual level, to do this you have to open the area, warm it up, and stretch it.

How much you weigh? Those are good numbers, definitely start some hypertrophy work yesterday.

I always find it weird when people walk straight into the gym, straight on the bench and start with their working weight.

Also pilot your arms are not that small but you seem to have a total lack of back width i think thats why you dont look aesthetics.

Agree with this.

 

Arms don't look disproportionately small. They could be bigger, but it doesn't look bad at all as it is. What makes you look a bit unaesthetic is the lack of a V-taper. I don't know if your high numbers in the squat and DL makes your core big, but either way a short cut and bigger lats wouldn't hurt.

 

Now I'm not even remotely close to having good numbers yet, but I thanks to being 6'3 and skinny prior to lifting I look pretty fit. I've noticed I easily build size in lats, delts and thighs. My arms are still pretty tiny though at 13.5-ish. Already starting to get problems with pants at 23" thighs ffffuuuu.gif

Getting a massage when you have bad back doms is a bad idea ffffuuuu.gif

conceptionist you need to get your arms to about 16" to look decent at your height i reckon. Mine just scrape 15 and they look acceptable when they get pumped, i would guess that adds half an inch or so. I'm scared to cut because they are the first part of me to shrink lol.

Did some knee height rack pulls today instead of deads. Found them almost as hard for some reason, only just managed 4 reps at 150kg, probably do more with straps though. Found it a less natural movement. I need to start some conditioning because i struggle to make it through a workout now.

I swear your on a hypertrophy program trying to get your upper body jacked? Only way not to be vain is to do what I did for months and only do box squat doubles, hip flexors got aesthetic as fuck.
