However, I felt something was off, with some grinding lower back feelings, and decided to record the last two.

Ive pretty muched stalled on DL, mainly because I am afraid I will hurt my back. I am tall (193/6´4) and have some issues with setting up the angles. For example, I would like to have my shoulders further back, but that results in lower hips and yadayada...


So, what am I doing wrong? I see some lower back rounding, but unsure why. Am I trying to pull by raising my back, or whats happening.

get tight BEFORE you grab the bar. Don't let yourself have a rounded back during the setup at any point, period. Bend at the knees and stand a little further back if you are having trouble getting low enough

Been getting a lot of carb cravings lately too frown.gif Sitting just under 170, which is where I gave up last time, having a hard time breaking through this final wall (all mental of course, lack of will power and focus, no excuses there...).

Try adding 200 cals of carbs a day and doing HIIT twice a week. Keep track of your measurements and if there is no weight gain in a few weeks repeat adding more carbs.

Conceptionist looks like a plank
I looked better before I went on this latest mass gaining phase
The rest of you are on perma dreamer bulks, may never see aesthetics

This is kind of why I have been getting so worked up. No offense to conceptionist but hes not really in any position to be making programs for other people at this point in his fitness career.

I don't know why it's so hard for some people to just eat and lift.

The whole "natty is worthless" thing is stupid I've made so much progress in terms of my aesthetics over the past 8 months, I'm excited to post progress pics at the end of the month before I start cutting. I see huge dudes at my gym too and I know they all aren't pinning so there's definitely a payoff in years of consistent, hard work while natty.

I know I've not accomplished much in regards to lifting yet but I do have experience with this.

 

I don't think you were posting in this thread at that moment, but last spring I got a friend set up on a lifting and nutrition program.

Had him run a very basic 5x5 template and he did Leangains (similar to what I advised Mark to do) and he got amazing results.

 

He got from barely being able do DB flat bench the 25 lbs for 5 reps to be doing sets of 10 with the 50's in two months, while going from about 15-16% to just around 10% bf. I stopped him from going ny further at that point since he didn't have much muscle mass.

 

I then gave him some new macros for adding size (slow bulking) and a more fledged out lifting template. Saw him 2 months later and I hardly recognized him.

He almost looked like a different person and was 25-30 pounds heavier around the same bf as when I initially got him set up.

 

 

Also, if Mark asks me personally for advice, I am going to try my best to help him out. I have not forced my view on him or told him that this is the only way. I've simply replied with what I've had success with.

I believe in structured plans and having laid out actions for realizing your goals. Like, if you want to increase your mobility, don't "just stretch", but do "these and these certain stretches". 

 

I have set him up with an detailed plan and offered to guide him through the whole process and make necessary changes, completely free of charge. I am not saying I should be taking money for what I do, but rather that I've put more effort into helping him out than most of you other guys (again, no offense).

 

I'm not going to put in the work to help Mark out if a lot of people in this thread are negative about my methods. If that's the case, I'll leave it be and have you help him out and answer any potential questions.

i can't really hate on conceptionist as he and i probably have the same amount of lbm except i'm a manlet and he's a frost giant.

Gym was closed yesterday and is closed today. Shits crazy here in Raleigh, there was a block party going on last night like it was the end of times. I'm gonna be upset if the second two storms knock down our power lines, luckily my power is still on unlike most of Raleigh.

I'd rather not ask any detailed diet or nutrition questions in this thread anymore, like I said PM only.

Once again, I don't understand all the fuss, has RHET gone too long without one of it's infamous shitshows?

Before I even turned to conceptionist for advice, i'd been reading a number of leangains/carb cycling/ IF success stories, blogs, posts, and doing research behind the methodologies. I believe in it, and think it's a great program. I just did not possess the knowledge to form a good program with those methods myself, conceptionist genuinely took the time to write several long and detailed posts for me, which he didn't have to do.

That and I genuinely enjoy having the insane structure, I like the strict parameters, and believe it or not I find it easier this way.

Also, to beat a dead horse even further, look at his before and after pictures. The proof is in the pudding.
