It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

So today at work my buddy was talking to me about working out again... He is trying to put on size too (he just started and is like 5'7 and 140 lbs... lol).. I was curious to see how big my arms had gotten since it had been a while since i measured them last.. I came to the realization that I need to stop doing any bicep work with a bb and just use dbs for a while.. haha.. My left arm measured 16.5... My right was 17.2.. haha
At least I'm guessing its my biceps that are different sizes since when I am normally standing my shirts fit even on both sides.. If it was my triceps being bigger in one arm I'd assume I would notice it with the shirts..

I'll just use dbs for a while and always start with the left arm and see if that fixes it...
Funny thing is my goal for this year was to hit 210 and have 17 inch arms by Christmas.. Its June and I'm at 205 right now and I bet I can get the left arm to catch up within a month and a half..
New goal... 220 and 17.5 by Christmas.. I dont think 250 by the end of next year will be out of the picture. So much for being a hardgainer.. haha

My .02...switch your routine up. Chest on the same day as shoulders and triceps will severely weaken your bench, or vice versa. If you want to do a bench on shoulder and tri days, do decline.

Yeah I don't usually have a routine like this. It's just that I played basketball yesterday and ended up doing upper body, so I ended up only doing lower body today, which forces me to do the remainder tomorrow.

I usually go from the major compound lifts first before going to the individual muscle exercise; so I would do bench first, then shoulders then triceps for tomorrow.

I started 4-5 years ago at 140 lbs... I worked out for maybe 2-3 years.. Then I got lazy and just stopped going for 2 years. I started up again 4 or so months ago at 185 lbs. When I stopped going before I was about 190 lbs. I'm 6'4 so 205 lbs still doesnt look big..

Lol, my bad. I'm pretty new to working out...

I have a fat in my core area (I have a belly...), thighs and calves, but my arms are as skinny as hell. What reps, sets, and rest times should I do to target getting bigger arms, but trying to lose weight in other areas (while gaining muscle)? I don't know much about working out. Hope you guys can give me advice.

High intensity interval training (HIIT). Basically cardio. I would start with a jog to warm-up, then bringing with a 15 second sprint followed by a 90 second jog.
Rinse and repeat. Works well for me for cutting. I dont believe you can target certain areas for fat loss, just overall fat loss through either working out/cardio/diet.

For bigger arms, I would try doing 5-5's. 5 sets of 5 reps, heavy weight. Probably with at least 60 seconds of rest.

had an eye opening conversation with a buddy tonight

he said "no one goes to the gym because they want to. they go because they have to because they want the results of getting bigger"

i couldnt believe it. and talked for the next 10 minutes explaining how i fucking love training. i wake up in the morning and cant wait till the evening to goto the gym. i txt my gym partner in the afternoon and talk about the workout for that night. i get home from work and just count the hours until i goto the gym. i fucking LOVE training.

The pump after a work out is too good. As Arnold once said: " It's as satisfying to me as, uh, coming is, you know? As, ah, having sex with a woman and coming. And so can you believe how much I am in heaven?"

Hahah…awesome.

I like going, because of the gains Ive been seeing, pushing myself, and also I know a lot of people at the gym and its fun for me..kind of like a hobby.

I tried the reverse hyperextensions for the back yesterday, felt pretty good…think Id need to add weight in between the legs to make it count tho.

its going to be difficult to add weight btw your legs, the easiest way to add resistance to reverse hypers are bands or ankle weights.

Try hip thrust, its a similar movement and it'll be easier to add resistances if need be.

hey so a couple posts back I was mentioning my stomach is always grumbling and it feels like i'm about to have diarrhea but i'm not. I was talking w/ a friend(she hardly knows anything bout working out) and she was just telling me it's possible that I might've damaged my inner lining of the stomach from all the fiber and wheat? Or that b/c I'm eating all wheat/grain foods it gets emptied out of the stomach too quickly and thus my stomach is always empty?

What are your takes on that RS crew?
