By pulldowns you mean lat machine right?

Yep any sort of pull down movement. No straps and then straps when you need them.

Good video on cutting / bulking.

You should check out the rest of the series too if you're interested.

Last part hit home for me. I gained too much weight. I'm gonna cut this summer.

I gained too much weight... i'm going to keep gaining weight for the next few months?

ENOUGH CTK, CUT ALREADY.

Now, I don't have that problem of mostly just gaining fat on a bulk since I'm still a "beginner", but I think many people miss that change and that they get too caught up in the bulk/cutting phases when they need a slower approach at that level.

 

I don't know but maybe a smaller surplus and let the training stands for the growth or much shorter bulk / cutting cycles, like 8-12 week bulk and then 4-6 week cutting. I think longer phases can lead to unnecessary fat gains and diminishing returns. The extra strength you get from bulking longer is neglectable in the long run as its the improved leverages from being fatter that mostly drives the strength gains in the end of longer bulks and you lose more strength on the longer cut. So the end result of one long bulk and one long cut would be the same as for many smaller bulks and cuts in a given time period, except that you skip the "growing out of all clothes" part and being unhealthy.

 

One instance I can still see heavy bulks for advanced trainees are if they need to meet a certain weight for competition or health reasons/whatever. I'm "underweight" for my height by powerlifting standards so I just need to bulk up. Luckily, it looks like most of my weight gain is quality weigh. After I've reached my goal weight I'm gonna try to recomp and then I'll prob just cruise and let the training stand for most of the gains with slower weight gain.

I'm almost at 2.5 plates on bench, 3 plates on squats and 4 plates on deads (for 3x5). I'm like 10-20lb away from all of em. Once I'm comfy with those I'll cut which will prob be well before summer. I already brought calories down and stopped gaining weight. I haven't gained any weight in the last month.

Someone tell me what the fuck this article is about?

"The catalyst for it is, of course, creatine, or any of the various protein powders that I imagine will end up being considered as my generation's thalidomide or asbestos at some point in the future. There aren't any stats that show just how many of us are using powder to get tonk, but it's one of the key products in a burgeoning sports nutrition industry – one with an estimated value of over £300 million in the UK alone."

I like this word "gaintaining" that he used in the video. Never heard of it before but knew exactly what he meant.

Today sucked I had no energy in the gym. Greg is coming over to chill tomorrow, excited!

My lock wouldn't work and they had to cut it off. :(

The Zyzz phenomenon?

Every fan of Jeff Seid and his "Shredded Club"?

 

It's a silly article but I'm sure you know what guys he's talking about if you've ever been to a touristy party place or a big mainstream party event aimed at younger people. Generally, you have a higher rate of finding these people if the destination is warm, has a beach and alcohol is cheap. Full Moon Party in Thailand or any EDM festival.

I know exactly the type of people he is talking about, I live in one of the best beach towns in NY, summer is over run with people like that.

It's just ridiculous how much hate that guy is exuding, it's somewhat pathetic.
post #40950 of 57260

Alright, then I misunderstood you. 

 

And yeah, I thought it was silly too. I don't even get the point of articles like that. I don't think its necessarily wrong to dislike or even hate anyone but it feels very pointless to spit it out to everyone else. It doesn't make it better for anyone. Some people don't seem to understand that you its your own choice to be happy or miserable and grumpy.
