seriously, he is all about tight snatches and public jerking.
I must weird because I don't care about how "big" or "ripped" I am. Granted, I'm already fairly well built, but every single goal I have is relates to performance, not appearance. If appearance changes as well, so be it, but it's not my priority.The only size that matters to me is how large the numbers are on the plates that I'm moving. In fact, I'd rather remain my current size and appearance and just get stronger. Obviously there's a limit to that, but I'd like to imagine myself as the guy who is much stronger than he looks. "Speak softly...."
FWIW, there's a guy at my gym who I see regularly wearing Crossfit tshirts and doing Crossfit-style workouts. He recently squatted 585 for 3 reps, and can hang clean 405. Dude is a beast. He said that his program is a hybrid strength/Crossfit, so his group will throw on more weight rather than push for more reps or outright speed-- though he says they do still push to do things quickly. I've taken some hints from him and have shaped some of the workouts after what he does. If done correctly, Crossfit can work very well; but that can be said about most any workout "plan": it's only as good as the people doing it.
And yeah I'd like to be in the category of being strong and don't *really* care about looks. I'd like to be leaner than I am now and pushing more weight, but do I care if I look like I workout in jeans and a tshirt? No.
Agreed 100%. And no haterade to the lift-for-swoles-and-pussy branch, this is just how I see it also.
I lift with strength goals, but I would be annoyed if I'm not bigger when I eventually deadlift 5 plates. Most of my training is in the 1-3 rep range, but a lot of my assistance work is in the higher reps and intended to increase mass.
HAHAHAHAHAHA I completely lost it when the music stopped while he was pausing between reps
Burst so many blood vessels in my face and chest today from benching
I think I did that last week. Is your face supposed to really hurt afterwards? Had a headache for 2 days.
You've got to be kidding about the 190 @ 10% bf. Definitely not unrealistic. Last I was measured, I was 11% at about 195 lbs. I'm about 199-200 lbs right and I think I may still be at the 11% bf range. That I will have to check. If you are referring to yourself at 190 @ 10%, then ignore. Also, I am 6'2"-3" range. Its not like I'm super tall so thats not it.
Literally have no idea what your saying. Someone translate please.
190lb at 10%bf is not small.
Whoa, no not at all! It's just the looks. Shouldn't hurt or feel weird or anything like that.
I'd like to be 198 at 8%. That'd be cool I guess.
I was just mirin brah. Mah bad, I originally thought you said it was impossible to get 10% fb @ 190.
