    For those who haven't seen him, Dom Mazzetti AKA The Brofessor, is absolutely hilarious. Most of his jokes are very true observations I see at the gym every time I go.

    Also share your general lifting/broscience humor.

    The Crossfit one is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

    I honestly hear people say this more than "Jacked", which baffles me.

    Also, the "you don't need to lift heavy, you just need to look like you lift heavy" thing is dumb as shit. I've never understood that mentality. Look, I want to be huge. But I want to be stronger than I look, quite honestly. If I ever reach 200 lbs, I want to be pushing exponentially higher than that weight. That's what makes the most sense to me.

    I don't usually like 'gym humour' but always enjoyed this guy's vids, never fail to inspire a laugh

    His whole channel is intentionally non-factual for entertainment purposes, but if you were just voicing your distaste for the concept then I agree

    Oh, I know the videos are. But I've seen guys who genuinely believe that, and I have no clue why anyone would want to be like that, other than trying to look good for women.

    That is exactly the reason why. Stronger-than-appears works well for me, being manlet status (5'7) :lol:

    oh whoops, didn't realise it was unclear

    I meant that the people who are jacked but couldn't knock out a crate of packing peanuts are that way precisely because they only lift to look good for women.

    The second sentence was me saying that being a short dude I much prefer being stronger than my appearance might let on :lol:

    ^

    Mike's "...What?" was in response to a spambot that basically copied what he had written earlier in the thread. I'm guessing the account and it's posts were banned/deleted.

    Yeah, I got what you were saying. There was another post in between ours that got deleted.

    Actually I'm in that group that doesn't care how much I can lift but want's to look strong and muscular.
    I definitely don't do it for the women, but instead because it's a standard I myself have become conditioned to over the years.
    It's not as if one would be very muscular and have very little strength at all, that's just not happening.

    It has more to do with the mentality you apply to the reps as they're being performed.
    If you're trying just to lift the weight for the sake of it then you'll likely not develop the muscularity that you would if you were to apply the "feel approach" to the reps.

    I really don't see either approach as better or worse.
    One just concentrates on neurological adaption more, and the other on hypertrophy.

    IIRC you're like the hugest dude on the forum though, so it's definitely working :lol:

    Agreed. I think most people started lifting for the same kind of reasons so I don't see why it's a problem :) Personally I'm just getting hugely into powerlifting and actually caring about strength myself, but my main goal is certainly aesthetic and it definitely isn't anything to do with women haha

    I'm definitely a Brotege. The gym buddies one is the first one I saw and it was amazing. I love the constant ripping of crossfit.

    My girlfriend got me one of the Dom shirts for my birthday...this one specifically:

    I think focusing on the neurological adaptation directly leads to hypertrophy. If your able to fire the neurons more strongly and also recruit previously unused neurons then you end up working your muscles much harder, so they have to grow. It really pays to concentrate intently on each movement when you lift IMO. Also takes some training on its own to gain that concentration, but once you have its great. It allows me to lift for shorter periods of time than previously and still get a great workout. I really don't have the time to spend an hour in the gym, so making the most out of ~30 mins has been my pursuit.
