Also, as for posters, this for sure https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&authuser=0&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1124&bih=638&q=arnold+conquer&oq=arnold+con&gs_l=img.3.0.0l10.1644.3228.0.4229.10.8.0.2.2.0.97.474.8.8.0....0...1ac.1.24.img..0.10.482.9_e3YfdhNPs



What knucks and gr posted is significantly harder then doing a ghr in a proper machine. I don't find them particularly hard on an actual GHR, but doing them on a lat pull down is ridiculous, I can barely do the eccentric and I definitely can't do the concentric. I see where CTK is coming from, doing them on a lat pull down it does feel like your hamstrings are about to tear.


Top lol with sloot from yesterday, my biceps were looking sickening from holding her up so I was miring them for a few minutes. Asked why I was looking at my arms instead of her. Also wore geisha make up yesterday, contemplating posting a photo, but it might be too homoerotic for even the RHET (is such a thing even possible?)

only one way to find out

If lifting for hypertrophy what percentage of your 1RM should you be lifting for your working sets?
post #32795 of 57266
60.3029%

Anything higher, you will getting strong.

Anything lower, you will be getting nowhere.

It's not about %'s of 1RM.

Lift so that you're failing on your last rep of 3x8-12 or whatever your goal rep range is.

Then lift more next time.

I think "sucks, but works" might be the way to go. Get rid of the spare tire so I can button my suits again and continue with the gainz.

You can express any weight as a percentile of your 1rm, just sayin. He probably just needs an estimate of what to start with. I'd start with 80% as a guess.

why are some non strength sport coaches so fucking dumb when it comes to their athletes in the weight room. had some track and field chick ask me to check her fs technique and she couldn't even rack the bar correctly. looked at her program and sure enough it was full of different classic lift variations she had no clue on what they were. according to coach her technique was 'solid'.

Have been doing lots of high volume-low weight lifting and HIIT all summer. Hit my goal of reaching sub-ten body fat, but now look very DYEL.

I'll be moving to college next week and will have a uni gym and dining hall within a block of my dorm. Looking to gain 30 pounds in 7 months. Will be following a slightly modified stripped 5x5. This will be my first proper bulk. Any advice/tips?

Charly will USAPL call me on my bench, feet not fully flat on ground? Someone said it was in the rule book.

Yep, you'll get called for that.

I think USAPL and the IPF are the only feds that require feet flat on the ground.

Okay, thanks for the clarification. That's no problem... I started putting my feet flat on the ground since I've heard that. The real problem is pausing, exactly the area where I'm the weakest and lest flexible at.
