I approve of the chart as well.

Adam and I are of age, so with your British we'll probably be straight. Lifting sesh is in order for sure.

In other news, coming back home after gym, fat neighbor lets me know that he thinks it's pretty funny that I pay to pick things up every day. Yeah, hilarious dude : |

but then i thought about it and it is kind of funny, lawl

As far as the guy's question -- if he's NEVER done any sort of gym training at all he most definitely should hire a personal trainer with a good reputation for a few sessions to learn the basic movements and safety.

 

Couldn't agree more. Find a coach, if only to get started. Trying to teach yourself compound lifting movements is difficult. Even with a camera, all you can tell is whether or not the movement looks correct. A good coach will be able to help you identify why a movement isn't correct, and will help you fix it.

Everything will grow evenly and none of those lifts are super technical. I feel like people just like saying they are on some popular program. A lot of them don't make much sense to me

 

Sure, but programming isn't the worry - technique is. I agree that as a beginner, following any novice program will get you results, but it's important to learn good technique early. That generally requires some sort of instruction from a coach.

IMO a good beginner's program shouldn't be full of movements that require coaching to learn. I do agree though that a good coach will be able to identify things like muscle imbalances, which will help a beginner avoid injury and get off on the right foot. But I don't think a beginner program should have shit like power cleans for purely aesthetic/conditioning goals.

There's a lot of ways to fuck up a deadlift or squat. I could post a deadlift video from earlier this year before I had done deadlift before... but I won't. Turtle mode is the best way I can describe, recipe for injury with more weight. Doing much better now though smile.gif

Power cleans, maybe/maybe not. But even squats should be taught properly. For most people, it's hard to watch a video or read a book and then go squat well. It requires a mix of strength, mobility, and good body control. Unless someone has a strong athletic background, they probably won't have enough of any of those things to move well from the beginning. A good coach offers supervision, feedback, and knowledge. It's really easy to spot someone who never learned how to squat properly, even if they can move really heavy weights.

Good luck finding a decent coach at most mcgyms.

I think you would have better luck watching a bunch of form videos, starting way lighter than you think you should and asking someone at your gym with good form--which you can recognize from having watched form videos--if they can watch you/give you pointers.

I forgot my chalk. Fuuuu. Worst feel ever when bar is slipping through your hands. I should do grip work. Still eked out 2x8x335. 10lb improvement from last time
post #31408 of 57263
ah, sucks. I often do one more rep approx 1 min after a set w. overhand grip and just stand as long as my grip allows. Made some decent grip strength progress this way but chalk is still a lifesaver. Specially on hot days.

Would not to be a farmers marathon if your using 50s. I like fat grips, limiting how much I use them because the massively decreased weight.

Lol, mum is like 5'5", dads 5'10" sister is 5'2" tysm genetic disorder. Sometimes I wounder if the height gains and bone structure gains are worth the difficulty in making gains and health risks and it definitely is.
