    By after a certain point I do mean either at Charlys level, or when you're over like 45 and you begin feeling like shit because your natural test production has slowed to a halt.

    Also, who cares if someone wants to do it just for fun

    Distended guts are from hgh and you do not lose your gains when you come off.

    200kg pull, should be totalling about 1100lb right now feels good man. Before someone says thats 180 the plates are 20,20,10,10,20,10. Pulled 220 after this, could maybe have gotten like 225 on an eleiko bar instead of this chunky as fuck squat bar.

    I will probably cycle for a bit then when I'm older stay on forever. Carbs provide so many good feels, not just lifting ones.

    Thats a good routine.
    Are you saying that one day you do compounds like squat, bench and pendlays + dips, and the next workout day you pretty much only do accessory work (with nothing for legs)?
    How many days a week do you train? I understand that you don't train for powerlifting, but you could still try to do a squat variation 3x a week, a hip dominant lift (conv dl, sumo, rdl, sldl, good morning, etc) 3x a week and then presses 3-4x a week for more volume than squats and deadlifts combined (upper body can handle more volume). How you divide that between sessions is up to you, but for instance, my coach is having me do this:

    Monday - full body
    Tuesday - upper body
    Thursday: full body
    Saturday: full body

    After cutting to like 185lb and 9% I think I might start a instagram and post photoshopped photos of myself with captions like "aim for the stars because if you miss you'll still hit the moon" under my photos and start wearing an obey snapback. Gonna drown in 17 year old clunge (yes legal).

    Fuji nice pull but that doesn't count in RHET federation because you didn't call me a faggot after.

    As for carbs I'm going on when I'm older, around 36 or so. My natural test is pretty high and I'm not near that point. Also my mommy would be upset, when I'm older I could just tell people to stfu because I got low T and I'm not doing it for ego and vanity reasons. I also got to do some research about prostate cancer and test, because my father died of it at a stupid young age because he had really high test and also his father died of it. My friend sorta has the same story and he cycles, he's sent me a few research papers on the subject that found no correlation, but still..

    Sorry, I was on my phone. It's the greyskull LP but I do the accessory work I think is necessary - so, Monday/Friday I'd squat, bench, row; Wednesday I would deadlift and OHP, and on all three days I'd do varying accessory exercises, but roughly in the volume I posted. The next week I'd squat/OHP Monday and Friday and bench/deadlift/row Wednesday. Three days a week, two full-body compounds per day (one legs one upper body).

    I'm on a cut, so I don't really want to mess with programming, but I am looking at other programs once I'm bulking again. That said, this has been working well, so I'm not sure if I need to mess with anything. Keep in mind I do yoga as well, which is actually pretty tough and leaves my hamstrings, back, core, and sometimes shoulders sore.

    Hehe yea some people most definitely do get sides from test. But nothing major. If you're worried about acne (aka the least of your problems), you should stay very clear of carbs...

    Ok.
    I've read the Greyskull book and I think the base of the program is very good. There's absolutely no need to change program and to start splitting up the body if you're used to full body sessions. I would not add any lifts during a cut, but once you switch over to bulking you could do some more work. You could either add another day for upper only, or you could keep it at three sessions but then they're gonna be longer. You could also do with squatting, benching and deadlifting (with variations not the standard lifts every time) 3x a week if you're up for it. Squatting and DLing in the same session will lower your DL in th short run but in the long run it will benefit from it.

    Also, there's no need to restrict yourself to only do the compounds in their most basic "competition" style. Feel free to switch one of the squatting sessions to a pause squat and one of the bench presses to incline bench or pin press or whatever you think will work your weakness and is a fun change.

    So, you have some things you can do when you switch to bulking:
    1) Increase the frequency for the main lifts, 2) add more accessory work, 3) possible add another day for upper only.

    Here's an example of how a decently high volume, moderately high frequency 3x a week routine could look. Its popular on a Swedish lifting forum I also post on. It's written by my trainer. Note that no lifts are taken to failure. You would also start with very conservative weights, higher reps per set and gradually scale up the weights while reps go down and sets go up. At the end of the cycle the sets also get reduced. If the sessions are too long you could just take one upper movement from each day and combine them into a short upper only day with msybe some more fun bro accessory work if you want.

    Well if he enjoys running, he'll probably enjoy the prostate exam too. Certified phaggot.

    More seriously, it's interesting to see how rhet's view on gear has changed in the past year.

    Was the rhet ever really against carbs?


    RHET I need some help. I feel like I need a snapback to go with my gains, which makes it look like I'm not interested in M&A and rather think that "life is too short to care what other people think" or "one life live it". Is this hat douchy enough

    I feel like without a logo it isn't. Might get a raiders one, I don't even know what city they're from, they play football amirite?

    I look stupid when I lift, esp during squats. For bench I just get a red face.

    Haha, I was just watching the video of my 285 x 5 today. Face looks like I'm taking a huge dump and complete agony, I need to look calmer somehow.. I miss having a 38" waist, lots of leverage. I don't really miss it though, I can actually bust out pullups and ab wheel now. Bench I get an awesome double chin.
