Here is a recommendation. Jump in a swimming pool. Have two guys your size jump on your back, you need to keep head and both hands above water. Then swim few times across the pool. Then start over for an hour. Keep in mind that average waterpolo player is 190cm/100kg. That's waterpolo. ;-)

I wish you dont have to show your "strenght" to pro player.

 

Nobody is accusing you of not being strong. However, just being strong does not make you (or anybody else) an expert in exercise science. Neither am I. However, in theory, building muscle is easy. You eat a surplus of calories and create "trauma" to your muscles. Generally, the best way to do that is by compound exercises, like squats and deadlifts, and progressively increasing the amount of weight. Many people get discouraged when it seems like they aren't making any progress. Very often, it's because they've forgotten the caloric requirement, and simply need to eat more.

Noodles' Exorcise Route:
- Squat
- Curls
- Military Press
- Bent Elbow Lateral Raise
- Frontal Raise
- Jump Rope for 20 to 30 minutes
- Weekly Soccer Games for 90 Minutes
(I'll ask you all to add more)

Then I'll take a break from this site and come back in the fall.

Personally, I would add deadlifts (arguably the best compound exercise, along with squats), bench press, rows and face pulls. Also, I'd do standing overhead press instead of military press, since you'll be able to use more weight. I'd skip the raises, at least for a while.

+1 on rows/face pulls/you need some back exercises in there. You need to work everything out, not just the 'glory' muscles.

Don't do lateral raises with bent elbows. Do them out straight with a dead stop at the top and bottom of the movement.

 

Frontal raises are silly, add bench press instead. That plus standing OHP will hit your anterior delts.

 

Honestly, buy an adjustable bench...


Then add, split squats, 1 leg romanian split squats, stiff leg deads, bench press, db rows, and incline bench press.

If he's using DB's it's probably easier just to do stiff legged deads. I won't do deads or squats anymore due to injuries, but I prefer to do 1 legged variations.

Face pulls are hard without a cable. It's easier to do rear delt rows or rear delt flyes at home with DBs if you have a bench. 


Basically he needs to buy an adjustable bench at home if he doesn't want to half ass all of this. Otherwise he's going to end up impinging his shoulder or something ridiculous.

Ah, I didn't notice that we're going for a DB-only program at home.

 

@The Noodles, if you have a garage in your home, I think you'll get much better results buying a barbell and using it for the majority of your lifts. I, too, get discouraged with the gym, primarily because of the over-saturation of equipment I'll never use and the added time for traveling, so I think a home-based gym is the perfect option. If you look for deals on second-hand items in good condition, you'll save a fortune, and won't take much of a loss if you ever have to unload it.

I am trying to build up to reading/annotating three articles without taking any sort of break. I can do two now. Eventually I want to be able to do five (a goal given to me by my to-be dissertation chair)
