Couldn't figure out how to do reverse deadlift, everytime i got up i just ended up hitting my ass with bar, causing me to do some weird motion.

Just a little hip drive makes a biggg difference in squating.. i learned that the hard way LOL

by the way, going to have and extra tub of muscle milk and orange triad after i order(notsurewhen), anyone is interested pm

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.

That's the thing, people fixate on weight as a measure of strength, but it's inaccurate. I could be just as strong as a 5'2 guy, but at 6'4 my range of motion is so much longer I can lift less. Increasing range of motion is similar to increasing reps, I think.

How tall are you? Im relatively happy being 5'7, ill probably still have room to grow.

Does lifitng TOO heavy (2-3x bodyweight) stunt growth, or what is it? just a myth?

maybe if you break your back or something but no it doesn't stunt growth at all, it might even make you taller in the growing phase since you'll have more growth hormones from stuff like squats and deadlifts

I remember when I started lifting I got so discouraged because I felt I was weak as shit. I could run for ages but I couldn't lift at all, lol. It was so hard to keep motivated at the start but consistently coming and seeing gains week by week kept motivating me...

I remember I started out benching with the bar only and getting super fucking tired lol. For my dumbell bench I remember starting with 25s on each hand and struggling...the humiliation I saw in myself was so hard on my ego . Then I realized that if I wanted to get genuinely strong, there shouldn't be any room for ego at all in training. I threw that shit away!

i will never forget my first day in the gym. i sorta bench pressed 25lb dumbells, shoulder pressed 22.5lb dumbells, and curled 20s for like half an hour after. and looked at all the guys benching like 50lb dumbells thinking they were gods among men. and i remember my buddy saying something about benching a plate per side as the goal everyone wants to reach. i thought that was for 'the big guys' not for me. lol

guys question for you about squats, so getting into heavy squats now (for me, my legs have always been neglected) so im reaching 200lbs for squat, but lately i haven't been able to complete the 5x5 for stronglift on squats, more like 3x5 and last 2 are just garbage lol what should i do ? lower to comfortably-heavy (185 probably) weight and do 5x5 or continue my increase of 5lbs every day i go but only be able to REALLY hit 3x5

Also agree with others, lifting won't stunt growth so no excuses! =)

Yeah, I remember even before I started working out I was constantly mirin all those muscular guys that could lift all heavy, thinking to myself that even if I could be one of those guys that could lift even 50lb dumbells and squat with a plate on each side, I'd be happy as hell lol.

Time ends up flying and you don't really realize how much you've progressed and how an active lifestyle changes EVERYTHING. Feelsgoodman.

Do you guys ever see people who used to work out like crazy before and stop and you see them down the road and they aren't the same anymore? Either they end up being super fat or lose all their mass? It's kind of scary because I never want to end up like that. I always hope to keep an active lifestyle NO MATTER WHAT because I never want to go back to being obese again. I think for me, constantly mirin people like I did when I first started keeps the fire going...I just hope it never ever burns out.

Sometimes, though, I see people so dedicated and they stop and I'm like...

if you want to continue on with your 5x5 program then maybe step back 5-15lbs and progress from there again. this is called deloading. or else just change it to a 3x5 program like what I'm doing.
i find myself not linearly progressing as much anymore. i hit 235lb squat 3x5 monday and haven't had the intensity/balls to go up another 5lbs so i just did 225lbs for reps today. actually didn't feel as easy as it did a week ago.
diet and sleep has been complete crap this week and i felt it.
on the bright side i got a new PR for deadlifts. 245lbs for 3 reps.
still not improving on bench wth is wrong with me

Or you could take the 5x5 principle and apply the work load across more sets.

In other words, you are aiming for 25 reps total, but can only do 3 good reps at a time. Instead of going backwards and lowering weight, just do as many sets as it takes to hit 25. Lower your rest times if you do this

yea it happens. life changes and priorities change. some people just lose interest. it seems to be right around the time you have a kid that you start not worrying about the gym anymore. but then you get guys like berz who fire out a kid and hes lifting harder now than ever before.

imagine all this work and then you quit what youd be like in 10 years... ahh.. but what if you keep goin for 10 years. then what would you be like.

Thanked 2 Times in 1 Post
so I was wondering about something and would like some opinions....
I normally rotate couple routines for each part whenever I workout
For example, on one week on sunday, I would do bench, fly, etc and do a different routine for chest after 2 weeks.......
I was wondering if it would be better to just work on like 2 or 3 routines every 2 weeks and just push more on those 2 instead of doing like 4 routines. So for example, doing bench and fly only for like 10 sets or something with reducing weights as you go along for like 2 weeks and change to another 2 different routines....

What I find is true for most people for bench, is that when they work with lower weights and increase their rep count, their strength increases and lean muscle mass density around the chest area also increases. This lets them break free from their plateau and move up higher even if its like 30 lb. Doing multiple sets of pushups within the day also really helps too. Main thing I find helpful is to get the blood rush going, and to feel the pump within your muscle after every set.. If you don't get that pump, it could mean one of two things 1) the weight is too light for you, and its not exerting enough pressure/work on your muscles or 2) the weight is too heavy for you, and you're exerting and overcompensating too much of the weight on your tendons and ligaments which could potentially cause alot of tissue damage
