So you don't have access to barbells/dumbbells? Or you just want to use KB's instead for some obscure reason?

If I can get to 99% muscle mass?.. I have no idea what that means but that sounds awesome.

 

 

Sorry, I meant 99% lean mass. Or 1% body fat, or whatever...

 

I'm done with this conversation. I feel like I'm arguing with a brick wall.

I wish Mike would go more into bodybuilding. He rarely writes about it, it's all related to powerlifting and stuff. I guess that gets more clicks in the circles he is in. But from what I gather he probably programs bodybuilding really close to powerlifting, big dumbell movements for more reps while increasing weight over time, except the competition phase.

I definitely have a thing for girls with lots of lower body fat biggrin.gif

Anyway you both agree stop arguing so we can get back to arguing about rice cookers

What surprises me is how the youtube fitness community seems to be able to sell out endless supplies of gym clothing. So weird.

Do I really need a tshirt to tell people I lift?

Did you just call me a brick wall? I think we're going to be best friends.

My goal is to use an unnecessary amount of gear to look like a natty guy with great genetics so I can fuck soulless girls with mental health and substance abuse issues. Im so much more noble then all of you.

I'm getting back into lifting. This time around instead of working out a part of my body so it will recover in 2-3 days, I'm trying to really max it out so that it takes 5 days to recover. My chest for example, before Id work it out, then by day 3 be ready for it again. Now it takes much longer and I absolutely destroy my chest when I go to the gym.

Too soon to see any results yet. Anyone else do this? What are your opinions?

lots of studies against this, like shit tonnes. You want a big squat, squat daily.

Most Youtube fitness subscribers do, yes.

Like why would I lift not to get topless at raves wearing sunglasses inside?

For me, it's about functional fitness over just about any other consideration. Yeah, I've benched 245 in the past (not much, but not bad for a swimmer), but what I can bench is irrelevant in the real world.

I was thinking about this while running this afternoon: is much rather look normal and be strong as fuck than look like a bodybuilder and not be able to run a mile.

I choose Kettlebells because I workout at home, and don't have other devices at my disposal. I know what I get out of it, so I don't really need other people blasting me for how I workout.

Like 1/2 of bodybuilding is cutting weight, aka tons of cardio. Also how many times are you going to bring up kettlebells?
