post #45526 of 57460
genetics are a bitch. i have a 6'10.5 wingspan and super long clavicles, naturally split bi's and calves which are good, a huge natural v and insane lats but no thickness to my chest, no depth to my back and my hamstrings are more like butcher's twine. my waist is relatively narrow but i only have 4 visible abs even the one time i got down to 6.5% bf

set of these for 50 bux. another kijiji win, not another smith-machine-and-400-lbs-of-plate-for-300 bux win, but good enough

Yeah I bought some Brooks Brothers Red Fleece chinos (7.5" leg opening) a few months ago and I barely wear them. I feel like extreme taper gives a feminine silhouette to guys with thick upper thighs. Luckily I only paid $26.

Just bought some BB mainline "Clark" fit (8.5" leg opening) and they work much better on me.

lol I just realized I'll be in Austin watching the F1 race in a VIP Skybox on the day of that meet. Oh well, that's way better than being in a sweaty room with a bunch of dudes wearing a singlet. 2014 year of the bodybuilding then.

My guess would have to do with the numbers game...I'm 26 and in dating, recruitment, weightlifting and scheduling everyone believes me when I give them numbers.  I rarely have a good conversation outside of the box anymore. I've had to talk numbers 31 times today.

Whoops don't know how to use the quote box ^^^  Response was to thekunk the other day bringing up the powerlifting phenomenon.  I know on bodybuilder.com all the mathmeticians post their max lifts...no video...no clue.   Anyways my apologies for the beginner mistake.  I've included a link to some great pants for people who know how to work their hamstrings and quads. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/22/barbell-apparel-denim-jeans-for-athletes_n_5192767.html

IMO this has to do with the whole "manly" hipster craze going on right now, at least in how its been embraced by Reddit neckbeards and other young nerds looking to make themselves feel better about themselves and feel more attractive to women. I know a guy who 8-10 years ago was full on metrosexual, fauxhawk, "going out" shirts, shitty Kenneth Cole square toe shoes, etc. Now he has a full blown Duck Dynasty beard, an undercut hairstyle, retro glasses, and competes in Strongman.

The correlation is bodybuilding / training for aesthetics = metrosexual; powerlifting / training for strength = manly. Hell, the Starting Strength people even go so far to say, "Training for performance makes you a man. Training for aesthetics makes you gay." (source)

I think that's why Crossfit has caught on. It makes people believe they are doing it to be functional, when in reality they are there to get a nice body.

Good lifting sesh today.

Back/Chest and a tiny bit of abs/bi's

 

4 sets of each of these in supersets.

 

Pullups

Incline press machine

 

DB Row

DB Press

 

Pec Dec flyes

Seated Rows

 

Then some cable reverse crunches and db curls. supersetted 3 sets each.


Feels great. Tomorrow will be shoulders, legs, and tiny bit of tri's and abs.

 

Trying to get up to doing 4-5 workouts a week where I hit every body part twice for 24ish sets each. If I can get 4 workouts in a week and skip a dedicated arm day, then that's totally fine with me. I'll swim for a day or two a week instead. Maybe I'll do arms or some core work after.


Doing a bro-ish cut for the next few weeks to try to get them abs. Was doing half decent but vacation was nuts. I really need to dial in my diet. I've been drinking booze and eating too much dessert.

I find it so weird how people think eating like 1 food is going to make them healthy, this came up on my fb

"Just drank my first cup of home made Matcha tea. Cant say it was the best. The lumps were hard to swallow, but downed it like a shot of tequila (with the same face at the end). Bring on energy and healthy living."

mate you drank some green fowl tasting shit, nothing magic is going to happen. It's like all women posting about chia seeds.

The Thing actually does get shown lifting trucks and shit in the movies, I think?

The Hulk! The red and grey one!
