Thanks! I did a couple cycles of Jonnie Candito's 6 week strength program throughout April and May, but now I'm back to more of an old school bodybuilding split, which is the type of training I enjoy most. A 4-day "bro split" of sorts: chest/tris, back/bis, shoulders, legs. I base my workouts on compound free weight movements, of course, and I enjoy training the big three for strength, but also do a fair amount of isolation exercises. And I've recently adopted rep range periodization cycles: week 1 is 12-15 reps, week 2 10-12, week 3 6-8, week 4 3-5, and then repeat the cycle.

As for my diet, I never track calories. I'm not trying to get into contest shape or anything, so there's no need to be super specific. I've manipulated my weight up and down enough times to "wing it", so to speak, and know how much to eat to be in a basic deficit or surplus. I weigh myself first thing in the morning once a week, and make adjustments to my food intake as needed. The only macro I worry about is protein, and I aim for at least 1 g per pound of body weight and eat protein with every meal. I don't like to overcomplicate things with my diet or training.

Hahaha, yeah. Would it make a difference if I said I took that pic for a chick, and I was slightly drunk? laugh.gif

Gotcha, sounds smart. I'm doing a 4 day a week bro split aswell that's like that. Complete old school bodybuilding, gym has no cable thingies so everything I do is barbell or dumbells. Though I have no periodization for now, I'm a fan of it but I really think I just need practice with higher reps week after week. Like I'm good with heavy loads, can pull 390-400 and squat 350 but it's sad what I can only do for 10-15 reps. So I don't really need practice with heavier weights, will do that once I get closer to my meet though.

I hate BB rows. I really think it's a love/hate movement.... if it doesn't feel right, don't bother. I got my wings from cable rows and chin ups

$200 for a decent road bike isn't bad, though I would've tried to haggle em down to $150. Still, your bike is nicer than mine probably, you obviously should pay more just for the gears alone (mine's single speed).

Of course Coldsnap would post the dumbest fucking looking bike ever. Dude you post the dumbest shit ever but for some reason I love you for it nohomo

Lifting in the morning is sort of lame because I have no idea what to do with all this free time in the evenings now. Sitting at work drinking beer on SF, like that's what I'm doing when I would've been lifting before, though I did just email Mitt Romney lololol

Deadlifts feel far worse for me, it's basically the same stance.  Lately for rows I've been spreading my feet wider, so like halfway between deadlift and sumo stance, which takes the stress off my lower back.

I can bench more than a 100, just been putting on weight slowly and like I said, I haven't plateaued with bench, deads or squats. probably will do as you suggested, just switch to db rows (though I think my gym has the stuff for landmine rows) and maybe do 1 or 2 of my overhead press sets seated.

As for diet, lots of eggs + chicken/pork for breakfast/dinner currently. Mexican/thai for lunch. Trying to go more protein, less carbs and keep my alcohol consumption down.

+1 on what the other guys have said.

Stronglifts 5x5 generally does not have enough lifts, but at your point practicing the lifts often and learning technique and how to control your muscles are the most crucial aspects.

You will find that your lifts will skyrocket when you nail the technique. After a while though, you will stall, and then you will add more accessory lifts while keeping everything else the same in the program so that your total workload goes up.

For diet, sure you need protein, but not in tue huge amount many bodybuilders and magazines have you believe. You should do fine with your bodyweight in grams of protein every day.

If you eat a well balanced diet, its pretty much impossible not to reach 170g protein a day. Just get some protein in every meal and you will reach that number.

Don't skip carbs. You need them for performance and recovery. They fuel your training while protein build the muscle. If anything, you can lower the fat intake. If you're on a calorie surplus, its pretty much impossible to get a fat defiency and I find I perform better on high carb rather than high fat. And carbs are not fattening for active people, as some people say. Fats seem to be more fattening than carbs for active people in a calorie surplus.

Really though I have 3 bikes. Ones an old Raleigh 12 speed restored, another is a masi single speed, and the last and favorite is the bmx. Between the fixed gear hipsters and road bike tech nerds the bmx crowd is awesome.

Just doing 45 mins of cruising after lifting on my bikes was enough cardio for me to drop 25lbs. Stoked that this new gym I around the corner so I can just ride there. Gym is ridiculous, I should take some pictures because its a perfect strength and conditioning gym. Some 17 year old kid snatched 266lbs and he's light as hell, meanwhile I was doing reverse curls in the corner.

Are you drunk posting or are your fingers so pumped that you're hitting the wrong keys?

Pics suck but you can see what I do. Upper back is reasonable, but still got loads of work to do for my chest and arms. No pics of wheels cause mine suck.

Someone want to humor me and create a 2x a week training routine?

I'm not counting calories at the moment, it's just too difficult, but I am maintaing my weight... routine would be mostly to stay in shape and retain strength, i'll throw in some shit for bis and abs but it ain't the main focus. Help a brotha out.
