Obviously also depends on bodyweight. If you're 250 and bench 250 it's hardly impressive compared to someone weighing 150.

Staying home watching shows on Netflix sounds like heaven to me.

Totally this. I only started to do any sports when I was 28 and chubby all my life. Will have taken me 2 years of lifting this summer to hit 310 lbs x 3 for deadlift (equals 2 x bodyweight). I think most people who never did anything athletic will need at least 6 months to get somewhat into shape and learn the technics.

In addition most people who start out looking like a cupcake will primarily focus on getting their pant size down and not go on that bulking routine.

Way too many variables to say this. Someone who is 6'4 is going to have a much harder time hitting 1000 than someone who is 5'7.

idk where the fuck all of you lift but in the NYC metro area outside of hardcore gyms I very rarely see anybody squat or deadlift more than 2 plates (and i've been living here for almost 5 years now and gone to a variety of gyms).

I don't see many big guys in the NYC area. I don't think NYC-lifestyle lends that well to getting very strong or big.

That's true. Most of the meatheads around here are B&T. But even then they're not big power-lifters.

Anyway, i've been playing with my sous vide. It's GOAT for meat.




Thick cut pork chops. 2 hours at 140*. Gf wanted to try an old bay spice rub but it didn't really stand up to searing. Meat was delicious though!

another vague squat question that's probably useless without video but, I realized I never come up on my heels and always on the balls of my feet, on bad reps I come up on my toes. I'm pretty sure it's because of having long femurs proportional to my body, but I don't see how it's possible for long legged people to come up on heels. I squat high bar and I look forward, never up, though looking up might help.

Are you wearing squat shoes? I'm in the same boat re: long femurs and It helps.

Hard to explain but you need to keep your torso more upright and you do that by feeling the weight over your heels and moving the hips "in".

Old bay on pork chops is bomb

I wear sneakers with firm and flat soles. Don't weightlifting shoes just pad the heel? Does that actually fix the problem?

Makes you more stable in the bottom position and you're less likely to raise your heels.

Even the buff gay guys aren't squatting 3 plates.
