I found barbell to be a lot more comfortable.
Same here. Plates don't get in the way as much as they do w/ dumbbells, too.
Who lifts weights.... honestly ....
You REALLY need to pick your goals first. Strength or size. Two very different methods. Im not a small dude to begin with, but Im much stronger then someone who's going for size. Im also not going to get "absolutely massive" with the way I lift.
Proper lifts, pushing yourself to the limit, and correct form are all absolute necessities for any goal.
1) go with someone who actually knows what they are doing a few times.
2) dont forget to listen to your body. If you're done, you're done. You need to know your limits.
3) Dont be one of those howler monkey's that goes in, wildly slinging weights around, grunting like a mad man, and then dropping weights. I fucking HATE seeing those fucking clowns doing what I call "Full body Curls" with 40's, screaming at the mirror for 8 reps, and the dropping the weights. Its not cool, its not doing anything for you, and you look like a toolbag when you do it.
Good luck!! And Supplements are your friend
My mistake- I actually meant barbell lol.
Nice guns^, but what's with the bunny ears lol.
I'm seeing now that alcohol might have been involved.
The pic reminds me of family guy, when Quagmire discovers the internet..
...Who drops the weight after curling. People do that, really?
There's this meat head at my gym always trying to lift stuff way too heavy for him and he pretty much drops whatever he's holding after getting it up one time. I wouldn't be as concerned as I am if he appeared to have even the slightest bit of control.
Yeah this is what Im talkin about really. If you're going for a max lift, thats one thing, but EVERY SET.... GTFO!
LOL @ quagmire refrence
Bunny ears, some chick was wearin em, I was drunk, she put em on me to take a picture. Not really sure why or what was going on, but yes, alcohol was most certainly a factor in this equation
These guys might be even worse lol.
I never relized there were as many gym douchbag videos on youtube, this should keep me busy for awhile.
^ just do whatever this says...
Im to the point where I dont have any patience with guys like this any more. If I see them setting around, I will usually go ask them to move so I can do my workout if they are in the way.
And a BIG "Roger That" to the encyclopedia of modern body building. Its not just for men, and its not just for body builders. It has fantastic information for all types of training, even aerobic if you wish.
How can you take this guy seriously?
Just kidding, Arnold is great and so is this guy..who's also natural
scooby1961 - YouTube
Arnold wasn't natural, he just didn't use nearly the amount of steroids most bodybuilders do nowadays.
Scooby has a great physique but his teaching is basically from many different training methods, to the point where there's tons of contradictions. A lot of his nutrition advice is bro science too. It worked for him, but it doesn't guarantee it won't work for someone with different genetics.
Sorry, my English is not so good. I never wanted to say that Arnold is a natural. That's insane Only that Scooby is a great instructor and also a natural bodybuilder.
It's known that Arnold consumed dbol, primobolan and nandrolone. Mostly dbol
Hey guys- another topic that I had a question about that I didn't think warranted another thread.
I've always had trouble gaining size in my chest- and I know that many other people have similar issues.
Are there any specific routines or exercises that any of you have found success with as far as gaining size and strength in your chest? I know Phil Heath exclusively does incline exercises now because flat has such a high-risk of injury.
Is your goal mostly size or strength? What are you doing now? How is your diet?
I tend to stick with very basic stuff for the most part..
For chest my typical exercises are
Barbell Bench Press
Dumbbell Bench Press
Incline Dumbbell Press
225x7 today on bench. New PR!
How much do you bench? If you can take the pain, Smolov Jr for bench works. Currently doing that and the Smolov Squat routine to bust through this plateua I've had. I'm nearing the 2 plate bench and 3 plate squat.
Oh, that understandable. And to the bolded part, NO.
Disagree with that, full of bro science
