It works though.
Anybody know weather or not adding a Yates row to my arm workout is a good idea or not?
Depends on your goals. If it's size, then adding more volume and variety to your workouts depending on trainee level and the structure of your routine, would be a good idea.
Hey, I don't need to be a bodybuilder or look good or any of that shit, I just need an extra boost in strength and endurance (especially endurance) so I can haul, hoist and chop logs for hours upon hours every day, amongst other hard labor like that. Any good program for that? I'm already p. strong from labor like that, but I don't follow any programs, other then like a morning jog for cardio.
mb if u chop logs ( aka sucking dicks) and want to get better you should maybe suck more dicks??>
5x5 puts on bulk right? Anything I can take out of it to reduce bulk? I guess I can go up in my wrestling weight class if it really works well.
nerd doesnt even know how muscle grow forl curse of the manlet inflicts all portions of your body
Whether or not you gain mass on a training program is entirely down to your food intake: caloric deficit = weight loss. Caloric surplus = weight gain.
You could do some dumb 1000 pushup program and gain mass off of it if your food intake was suitable.
hoyl shit, casus is back
Is this shake any good?
It's the one I've been taking, but it tastes too good to be true and worry if it has too many calories for me.
Worth nothing that I'm a fat fuck who wants to lose weight, but also pack on some muscle mass.
choose only one
and youre trashcan stupid learn to log your calories you fatty ( 11*bw)
why cant i progress on 5x5
i've been stuck at 205 squats for like 3 weeks now
feels bad man
what is a deload
Started up with the gym again for the first time since late April. Did some Stronglifts 5X5.
When I was in school, from January to April, I was going to the gym. I was doing the 12 10 8 system (12 10 8 reps for 3 sets), and I definitely got stronger. But Even after today, the 5X5 feels even better.
I did the squats, benchbrenches, and dumbbells, but also did a few other exercises.
I ended up doing another round of sets for squats because I felt I could do a little more weight.
Dumbbells I did skullcrushers and snatches.
Nothing special for the benches.
I did some lat pulldowns and leg presses, even though the squats raped my legs.
"benchbrenches" haha amazing, I'll use that
Did workout B today of 5X5, even though I'm still sore from two days ago.
I don't think I have very good form on any of the exercises. Squats kinda hurt my neck.
Also, just doing the three exercises doesn't take too long, like just around 30mins, give or take, so I feel like I gotta do more so I can get a full hour in, so I throw in some isolation shit.
Don't play with the volume too much, 5x5 is pretty volume intensive as it is and you adding more to the mix would just increase your "minimum" volume tolerance and by thus increasing the duration of your workouts and difficulty. (i.e adding 10 sets of bullshit just to "feel the workout" is completely irrelevant and useless)
At first this workout probably won't make you break sweat, give it a month or two..
l2 increase weight and take longer rests
Can someone of mild intelligence just fucking post a list of trustworthy/cheap/good options (i.e. brands) for the already suggested supplements for people like myself who are just recently taking an interest in physiology? etc. etc.
just get on bb.com and choose something.......
imo creatine is literallerally the onlyy sup worht takin
bcaas maybe for if but thats a whoe noher subject just go to leangains.com for that
For whey, just get their whey protein concentrate, and fro creatine, get the Creapure Creatine Monohydrate
Do squats give that much of a benefit over the leg press? I've decided to stop squatting until I can fix up my ankle. I've rolled it too many times in the past playing basketball and these days when I squat I get a sharp pain in my right ankle. I'll go to the physio and do some exercises to improve it though. In the mean time I'm just going to use to leg press.
Today I managed 3 sets of 10 reps 160 kg and then 2 sets 10 reps of 150 kg with only pushing through my heels so I'm happy with that for now.
If it's hypertrophy you want, then no.
What can I do about my high estrogen levels?
сhange diet and see a doc
Aromatase can be synthesized in fat tissue, more aromatase enzyme = more testosterone converted to estradiol (estrogen).
The most obvious step here would be to reduce your bodyfat. Other than that, supplement vitamin d3 and see a doctor about bloodwork and advice from there.
Aromatase Inhibitors are the next step if you do have a legitimate problem.
Alright, I have virtually no fitness expertise, but seeing as my PT's away on vacation, and I don't wanna let myself go over the holidays, I've written myself a short daily workout, which goes like so:
10 x Bench press
10 x Crunches
10 x Pull down
10 x Row
10 x Squat
I'd repeat this five times.
What do you reckon, is it too much / not enough?
Any excercises I should consider adding or changing?
i would at least split it into an upperbody day/lower body day sort of thing and add dead lifts, mil press and rows
i would also take out crunches bc your core will be activated doing compound movements
i will take out crunches because it's a shit exercise for two reasons;
one, range of motion reminds me of a guy blowing himself. it is completely useless in terms of overall time under tension, it's the least out of a long list of bang for buck exercises for abs
two, it has no real world value. you never 'crunch' yourself. you stabilize yourself using your abs. you stabilize, not crunch during squats. you stabilize , not crunch during deadlifts...
you want some real ab exercises? try turkish get ups ... one arm shoulder presses .... something that has a carry over. leg raises on a pull up bar, at least that has some range of motion.
also, your routine seems structure-less. no progressions besides a simple idea that "doing something, with enough volume and a certain rep range will make you grow" at your level, you should be aiming at priming your central nervous system, via specific motions such as squats. size will come regardless at your level, at least for a month or two maybe 3 that's what you should be doing. google stronglifts.
