    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Right. I see that, but that's the entire point of the study itself.

    gotcha

    I do find examine useful whenever someone feel the need to talk to me about something training related after reading it on *insert generic random trash website such as buzzfeed*.

    ^ speaking of arms. Back in highschool when I was looking at bodybuilding programs a lot of them had arms day same day as legs. So it was like Sunday - Legs / Arms, Tuesday - Shoulders / Tris, Thursday - Back / Bis, Saturday - Bench. I was thinking of doing something like this, I could cruise for awhile on the muscle I've built in my legs powerliftings. My biceps are a little over 15" flexed, I'd really like to see 16" at same bodyweight in like 8 months or so.

    On another note, I was kidding myself thinking I'll do a strength cycle mixed in sometimes with bodybuilding. High volume is just too fun and my body feels amazing after doing that then cardio. In Arnolds book it says to sprinkle in some heavy days, but I just dont see the point.

    That sad day that you realize you are far more aesthetic in your workout clothes than regular clothes.

    Yup sad truth. You can either look sharp in a suit but look dainty in your cropped sweatpants at the gym. Or look like a wrapped sausage in a suit or a boss in the gym. The secret is freeing yourself from #menswear. Or be like me and look shitty in both.

    Its not that bad. Your clothes shouldnt be tight enough to where people can see your shoulder/glute striations anyway. As long as my pants fit good, stomach is flat and sleeves hug the guns Im OK in clothes. I do want more detail and bigger arms tho

    I think this is only a problem for the manlet. If you don't go fridge mode when you put on muscle suits are fine.

    Soft shoulders + extended silhouette ex: Attolini + bespoke shirting = you can still kinda look like you lift

    Why don't you just do a couple of sets for biceps and triceps at the end of every session?

    Yup. Looked way better at 175 than now. Some silhouettes don't work at all anymore, and big quads only look good at the beach or in the gym.


    The proportions get all messed up when you look like you lift. Too wide and broad shouldered.
    Cant really layer the same way either.

    I've personally found that MC is most flattering. Higher waisted trousers and oxford shirts and I barely look like I lift.

    I was making a joke and now I'm just really sad that something like this exists that wasn't a bastard child of someone with too much time, money, and luxire access.
