I guess if your trying to get the weight up by any means necessary then I guess I'll congrats on the lift. If you actually want to say you bench 350 though...... Keep that ass on the bench son.

That's my reason for the thank and the fail.

Good job though.

Berz out.

Damn $1500 for a rack? I was budgeting that much for my entire setup -- albeit the rack I was going to get wasn't that nice.
$1500 is a lot but I mean, I'd rather spend money on a solid rack. Been wanting this half rack for awhile now too.

I guess it all depends from person to person and where their motivation to lift stands. For me I'm fine at home or at the gym. I usually lift at home if I don't have time to run from school to the gym or work to the gym. Doesn't bore me at all.

so i went gym today, did my usual 2 plates (only got 2 reps, i had no spotter and i was burnt from doing 165 x 10 2 sets) and im all like

then i see someone come and do 245 but it was the most weirdest shit ever.. they hold the bar as wide as they can and they dont go down all the way..the bar is prob 10cm from their chest, which is a lot IMO and im there starring like

fuck you son my arms are longer and i go all the way down

Anyone have any secret exercises for increasing shoulder size?

Right now I do Military press's or DB presses, Side lateral raises (cable or DBs) Rear Fly's and at the end of the workout, machine shoulder presses. Not seeing the kind of progress I would like though. School me Brah's.
I throw some upright rows in there some days as well.

Berz out.

what is more or less the first thing you see on any olympic lifter, huge traps and shoulders from all Olympic lifts.

past months i have thrown in cleans or any type of pull and shrug from the ground

shoulders are very tricky to get big well they were for me, try doing a bunch of these exercises dont have to do them all but add them into the mix

c-thib has huge traps and shoulders case of his Olympic style of lifting in the body building world

These destroy my shoulders every time. But everyone cheats when doing them, I can't even find a video of proper form. Keep your upper arm perpendicular to the floor on the rotation at the bottom of the rep. Rotate the weights 180 degrees and tap them together right in front of your face before reversing the motion and pressing.

Just got back from chest day, cable flies from all 3 spots are increasing my strength tremendously. Had no problems with 70lb db flat presses, thinking of attempting 75lbs next week if I don't start with incline.

does anyone take a Casein protein shake before bed? i heard that can help build muscle, boost yer metabo, and burn fat while you sleep as casein is a slow releasing protein compared to whey

Give it time to rest, you're better off letting it heal than to force stress on it and delaying recovery.




Fuark I miss the gym brahs, sick days suck!

I'm gonna kill it when I get back.

How to: Arnold Press - Shoulder Workout - YouTube
I do them the 'cheat' way by doing it all in one motion instead of rotate then press. I love em this way. NOTHING hits my shoulders as hard as this. Sets of 10-12 with about 20lbs less than my usual dumbell press.

that's technically impossible since every movement you do that involves the quads also involves the knee cap... the only thing you can do is minimize the resistance that you do on your quad exercises. Or you can choose to not do touch quads until your injury is recovered
