post #30316 of 49501
This is complete bro science but every time I got munchies like that I usually take it as my body asking for a lot of calories so I just eat whatever, maybe I'm about to get sick or it needs some more calories to recover. This only happens like 1 a month and probably coincides with my heavy week. I just pig out and I'm happy with that. I could see this being dangerous if your metabolism and glycemic levels are not in check because most people have munchies like this every night before bed for that reason, so it can be a slippery slope.

Serious weightlifters scoff at Superman workout feature; insist 'he is not that jacked'

Following the release of a workout video and news feature detailing "Man of Steel" actor Henry Cavill's workout routine, many regular posters in Styleforum's "Random Health and Exercise Thoughts" expressed cynicism towards Mr Cavill's physical accomplishments. "Bullshit. Total bullshit," sneered resident powerlifter mrchariybrown. "Does that phaggot even lift?" he phrased rhetorically in regards to the British actor, whose only reported motivation for working out was his contractual obligation to a Hollywood studio paying him millions of dollars. "I mean, here I am, squatting to regulation depth like a real man, and this sissy-boy is flexing his guns in a pair of tights" added the powerlifter, oblivious to the fact that an actor who only needed to look aesthetically appealing for his role could not possibly even aspire to meet the expectations of someone involved in a sport where people lifted 800lbs at once.

"Yeah, honestly" chimed in Finnish weightlifter Lagrangian. "Its almost like the media hyperbolizes anything remotely sexual in order to get their readership hot and bothered enough to read their shitty articles. Doesn't anyone know that lifting weights solely to look good is shameful in the eyes of Saint Klokov?" He went on to further complain about the sexualization of physical fitness while coincidentally using terms like "snatch" and "jerking" repeatedly in defence of his sport. French-Canadian lifter virus646 also expressed discontent in between mouthfuls of poutine: "C'est ce que fuck?" he asked. "I mean, he looked good, but come on. Anyone who is halfway serious about lifting would look better with all the special effects treatment he got" expressed the Canuck, implying that the physique of someone who literally had no reason to care about fitness other than to act in movies would be inferior to that of someone who passionately pursued the pastime to the point of it being an integral part of their lifestyle, if not a defining part of their identity.

Sources confirmed that that all of the above posters had deeply-rooted intrinsic motivation for various lifting-related pursuits, putting them at ethical odds with the evidently pitifully-shaped Cavill. Furthermore, sources also revealed that serious devotees of literally any pastime enjoyed by humans in the history of time would be offended by the gross over-simplification and apparent dismissal made by mainstream media of their pastime, and by extension, their own personal accomplishments. Other posters, however, expressed admiration with the dashing Brit. "Thick. Solid. Tight." said D.C. resident gort. "Seriously mirin dat superman aesthetic," agreed the Aryan jarude. "Time for a chest/shrug/delt split," added Towers, making a backhanded compliment at the evident upper-body focus of the actor's routine.

When reached for comment, Cavill momentarily appeared confused as he swam in his pool full of money while surrounded by the ensemble of Victoria's Secret Angels. "Oh, that? I mean, I thought people would understand that the media tended to blow things out of proportion. Not to mention the vast majority of the physically inactive and pear-shaped population would no doubt be impressed or maybe even motivated by my relatively above-average accomplishments. You know, or the fact that I'm fucking Superman and anything tangentially related to the movie would boost readership and line that shitty paper's coffers. Oh well." With that, he donned a gorilla mask and said cryptically, "hush now, RHET. No jimmies now, only dreams" before rejoining the supermodels, many of whom were giggling and whispering to one another about how he must work out.

I can tell that's fake because he's dating former punching bag Gina car and, not a bunch of Victoria secret models.

Fuji: I'm still waiting on those squatting videos of 150-200kg for reps that you were doing...

Squatted 170kg for a triple and I think it was like 127.5kgx20 and about 155kg for 8. I've posted lifting videos before. Posted 140kgx20 on deads because someone said coldsnaps lifts were higher then mine or something and I think I did one of much heavier deads too. Liftings not very important to me right now because it's summer, i'll get back into properly in the fall.


Do not understand the russling over superman, guy got in the shape he needed to be in for the film. He didn't need to look like an elite powerlifter. Also in one of the photos on daily mail it looks like he's pulling in the low 400s without a belt, which is still higher then a lot of the people in this thread.

I don't recall any videos showing you squatting those weights. Not calling you out but the only videos I remember were one with a really bad angle and another that was private or sent in a PM or something like that.

Nah never posted a squat video, only deads. I will post a video doing 4 plates for reps on deads or something when im back in cambridge and can use my nice eleiko bar with plenty of whip.



Fat jewish brah has went back to the states. He is in much better shape then when he left. He now has the mobility to hit depth and can do like 120kg for a single, pull 160kg and he benched 100kg for a few reps, which was pretty sick. He didn't do too bad coming off either, no bad sides. He got tonsillitis in the states and was given oxycodone by his doctors, literally wtf americah brahs.

Nothing against what the actor did, simply the article.

Aw man Jarude, that was pure gold 0/10, was hard to be serious while reading that at the office nod[1].gif

Fat starting to melt away with the cut and I'm gonna be a skinny bitch soon. I've been highly optimistic about keeping up my numbers, but I feel the diet impacting my lifts already.

Yesterday's SS session was 330lbs Squat and I ended up dropping reps on the last two sets. 5, 4, 0 and decided against paying my debt since I still had DL next. 385 x5 DL was pretty cake still, but harder than before. Maybe it's all mental and I need to just man up. I got 3 more weeks of SS and it feels like it's gonna be tough if yesterday was an indicator.

Debating a reset by 15% or just trying again on Wednesday to muscle through the squats and other lifts.

why are you running SS and cutting. That's a program that NEEDS a calorie surplus. I always refer to that rippetoe article where he states if your not gaining a lb a week while on SS you're doing it wrong.

I assume he's doing it to maintain strength and muscle rather than increase.
post #30328 of 49501
^ Pretty much. I was already 1/2 into SS and didn't want to drop it right away, and my numbers were still climbing during the cut. I'm so close to finishing might as well see it through and I feel it's helping me maintain what strength/muscle I've gained. However, in hindsight I should have kept going with the bulk through all of SS, but I got antsy.

Live and learn.
post #30329 of 49501
Yea if its almost over might as well stick it out. When I eventually cut im just going to accept that my lifts will stay about the same or go down a bit. So im just going to do 531, skip the amrap and just do a ton of volume and sled pushing
post #30330 of 49501
Yup, that's my plan too after SS is done, but without the sled pushing. Although, you're making me want one.
