Workmate noticed my gains.

>Hey, Anon, have you been lifting or something? I had never noticed your forearms were like this... and you look... fuller or something...

>"T-thanks senpai... I g-guess I'm just wearing tighter shirts than usual, hehehe...."

Not fit enough to let it out that I do work out.

How long do protein stay "active"?

What the fuck is this?

Is your form OK?

45° angle from your core to your arms?

Women don't care and don't want to know about the matrix. They just want to fuck Neo.

Is overtraining a myth?

I normally work out every other day, but when work gets busy, it can be much less. Sometimes 5 days go by without working out. I'm still progressing, however, still getting stronger and looking more muscular.

I once stopped for 2 weeks and hardly noticed any difference. I was on holidays. I didn't get weaker and I saw no muscle loss. I hear 2 weeks is about when your body starts to reduce your muscles if they don't get used.

Yeah, and I try to keep my forearm in line with my wrist throughout and push up and back slightly. I touch the bar to right at my sternum and push it up so it covers the same rafter on my ceiling every time. I'm stuck using a grip that is shoulder width apart, though because my bench is shit and can't facilitate doing a regular grip with somebody who is 6'4.

How many pushups can you do? In a row.

2 weeks on a deficit of 500 calories without cardio

some people with better genetics can hang on to muscle for longer

overtraining doesnt have to be full on i-am-going-to-die agonizing, or a complete halt to gains, but it can slow down your progress from interrupted recovery (i.e. only 2.5lb strength gain instead of 5lbs)

Is it me or the "law of diminishing returns" is brutal?

When I started, a weakling, I could load up fairly frequently. But now, it'll take over a month or two to load up. Meanwhile, I increase reps and such, so I do see progress, but it's slow as balls.

Is this normal?

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:31:35 No.37516013
53, but I don't know if that's a good measure for whatever you're trying to know because I intentionally train them and have been working on them since before I started lifting. I go to basic training in August.

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:33:10 No.37516021

It is a good measure. I was going to recommend trying pushups instead of bench pressing, but 53 is so high that it means the exercise is virtually useless for strength gains.

Could it be your bench pressing is too heavy?

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:33:38 No.37516023

Depends on how strong you are, but yes.

An absolute beginner can put 10 or 20lbs on his squat in a few days. A highly experienced lifter can take whole training cycles to do that - and still fail half the time.

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:35:24 No.37516034
Possibly, I could try deloading back five to ten pounds or so since I haven't done this rep scheme on a compound lift before. First time i did it, it felt like somebody shot up hot tar into my veins or something.

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:35:52 No.37516037

Try that.

Will do. Thanks, anon.

I really recently started lifting, doing a PPL routine my brother who is super fit gave me.

I'm proud of myself, I dont really have too many people to talk about this kind of thing but I think I've been doing really well.

It was really my first lifting ever, I think I'm finally getting the form down for the big lfits. I have a pretty huge frame and used to be extremely in shape (swam three hours a day every day for four years) and kind of slipped out of shape over the last two.

Lifting is fucking fun. I love being able to measure my improvement. This week I haven't been increasing weight, but making sure I'm doing exercises completely properly, and it makes everything so much harder! Doing a bench press until you touch the chest, instead of a few inches above, the difference is massive.

I havent noticed myself looking any different, except my stretch marks are gone, which is how I know I'm making steps in the right direction.

Im sore and it feels good.

Asking again because I didn't get an answer in the other thread (maybe it's a dumb question)

If I'm sitting at a constant weight then surely I can assume that I'm meeting my caloric requirements right? Therefore if I start doing weights I can just slap an extra 500 calories or so above what I'm currently taking in?

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:39:17 No.37516055

Good job.

Sure, if needed. If you have any extra fat on you, bulking isn't necessary. I got some fat on my belly, if I bulked, I'd just get fatter.

Bulking is done solely to ensure your body has enough resources. That's all. Extra fat = excess energy. Any excess means you have enough.

No need to get fat to get strong.

My current work out is based on SS principles using DB and a pullup bar.

>military presses with DB
>pushups (5 sets of 10 reps, which is almost my max, I started weak as fuck and couldn't do a single pushup a few months ago only)
>various legs exercises though mostly flexibility ones for now

This combines pushing, pressing, and leg. It works great for me, better than anything I've tried before. Anything wrong with it in your opinion? Back it up with some argument so I can understand your opinion better.

Anonymous 2016-06-11 08:45:05 No.37516088
Thanks. I'd probably have to take extra in that case, I'm a very light guy (50kg) so there's not much left to trim.
