Yah, the diet is called "eat more". Metabolically, people are actually very similar. Those who say they have a high metabolism actually don't. I don't have the studies handy but the difference works out to something like +/- 5% which is barely significant.

You're eating far less than you think you are so... eat more and track your calories.

Has anyone here tried Beta alanine as a substitute for other preoworkouts? A buddy told me about it, and looking online seems to have some rave reviews.

According to my incredibly accurate iPod app my calculated 1RM's are almost exactly the same as your(Unless you repping those weight ), slightly lagging in the DL though. 6'2 190lbs. Funny how the body works, similar weights, similar strength's.


Although, there isn't a doubt in my mind I couldn't actually bench 245 haha

If you wanna beef up double whatever you're eating now.
I had the same problem before as well, I was stuck at my weight for the longest time so I started eating more. I dunno how long it took, but I shot up another 8lbs without even knowing it. All because I just stuff my face with whatever I can get my hands on (no fast food)

The only problem now is it takes me longer to eat cause I never feel full

Is this true?

Shorter people can bench a lot more?

Been hearing this for quite some time.

Shorter people have less distance to push the weight so it's easier for them to push heavier weights. If tall guys pushed the weight only 4 inches we would be lifting huge too

It's easier for shorter people to lift more weight because in most cases they don't have to move the weight nearly as far as someone my height for example. My range of motion is probably 50% more than someone who's say 5'5"-5'7". A guy benching 225lbs at 5'7" is not as strong as a guy who's 6'3" and pushing the same IMO.

Berz beat me to it. Fucker.

its not just how far the weight moves but alot to do with where it moves from

for example, for a guy with long arms to touch the bar to his chest, his elbows need to be brought much further down than a guy with short arms.

a guy with (for example) 9 inch forearms could probably have their upper arms parallel whereas a guy with 15" arms would need to have his elbows effectively 6 inches lower to bring the bar down to the same place. the guy with short arms is only doing like 60% of the range of motion that a guy with 15" arms is doing.

Deadlifts are even worse on a guy with longer legs. They need to have their upper body bent much further forward (ass and hips further back or up) than a manlet does. a 5'6 guy is basically doing rack pulls compared to a 6'+ guy


and all that being said, halo is the tallest guy here. so none of us have any excuses.
