Is there a good reason to not do 3x8 pullups every single day?
Doing sets of at least 20 instead. If you can't do 20 pullups, fuck off because you are too fucking heavy/weak to ever be useful if you need to climb something or rescue yourself
>Meant to be shoulder day
>Pissed as fuck
>Do shoulder, do bit of chest, biceps, tris, abs, legs body is in so much pain but somehow I manage to push through all of it
>Literally 3 hours of training
It was one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had
Except skull crushers, what is the best tricep isolation exercise?
Dumbbell kickbacks give me a great pump, especially when I hold the flex for a moment at the top, really keeping the tricep tight. My vote goes to them for isolation.
Also very partial to skullcrushers though.
Anyone got an educated opinion on btn (push) presses?
Looks pretty cool and Klokov and others are doing it but dropping weight that close to your neck and behind your head…
To be clear, I'm not asking about seated versions of this exercise of similar variants where you are not bending your knees when catching the weight.
I do my BtN's like arnold. Low weight high rep.
I can OHP 80kg for 6-8, 8 on goodday.
But I just BtN with 40kg 20+ rep sets, highest ive ever gone was 65kg on btn, but they sort of felt counter-productive for the purpose of the lift, hence why I just stay low weight high rep.
You need good shoulder mobility to do either. Better shoulder mobility for strict than push. You also need quite good ankle mobility for btn push presses. you've got to be able to stay very upright on the dip both for the initial drive and when lowering the bar to your shoulders.
If you've got that, they have some uses for training overhead stability, tri/mid delt strength and power.
>there are people on this board who unironically cant pause a 315 highbar squat.
>there are people on this board who unironically squat WAY more than me but some how have DYEL legs
I dont get it, are you people all just lanklets making shit up?
I squat like 100kg for reps as a 5'7 manlet and my legs are like fucking tree trunks while I see people on here with skelly legs claiming 200kg+ squats.
Do you love eating fish? What's your favorite fish? Do you ever eat fish fillets from the supermarket or do you catch your fish yourself?
un francais peu m aider s'il vous plait ?
je cherche à obtenir des abdos avec des exo faisable chez moi
abdos sont strictement un resultat de ton alimentation. Des exercises vont aider jusqu'un certain point, mais c'est vraiment la nourriture qui donne le 6-pack.
Achete toi une ab wheel, va au parc et fait des hanging leg raise, et mange bien.
Fwiw, j'ai un des meilleurs 6pack sur ce site et je fais absolument rien pour abs. Bonne chance
What's the most degenerate thing that you've had happen to you in the gym lockerroom or that you've seen in the gym lockerroom /fit/?
In my old gym there was a communal shower. My gym buddy and I were taking a shower at the same time becuase we just finished our routine for the day.
He started washing his hair and then closed his eyes and put his head under the shower head to rinse off.
That's when I got a bright idea....I grabbed my liquid soap and snuck up behind him. Then I opened the soap and started pouring soap into the shower stream. He couldn't figure out why the soap wouldn't rinse off.
It was pretty...

What's your number 1 tool to staying on top of your intake? Apparently fear of being fat isn't enough anymore
I'm a student, and I'm used to sitting down to write an essay with a bowl of cashews or pork rinds (I don't care about the sodium, desu), but I'm realising this habit is the biggest thing between me and my gains. What do?
You're not really supposed to make gains every time you go to the gym, are you?
How can you reasonably expect to be able to lift 5kg more than you did 4 days ago? Muscles don't repair and grow in such a short space of time.
And yet every program insists that for the first 6 months you should go up in weight at every visit.
Are these unrealistic expectations?
If not, what expectations are realistic?
If they are achievable, are they the result of the individual's will rather than an actual improvement ins strength?
They are realistic expectations for a new lifter. There comes a time when it will slow down, but for the first few weeks adding 5kg per session to your squat and deadlift is entirely expected.
Does the timing of protein intake after a workout matter, or is that a broscience meme?
It doesn't matter at all. Just eat whenever you usually would. I usually eat before a workout but that's not related to gains it's personal preference.
hi /fit/. i'm a mtf trans and unfortunately i'm still pretty bulky. i'm eating at around 700-800 cal per day in order to lose weight, but a large part of that is protein powder so i don't feel hungry the whole day.
do i need to keep my protein consumption as low as possible to lose muscle? like 20-30g per day? or is dieting and not exercising enough?
With the protein your taking, your slowing your progress of lossing the muscle (everyday movement/things you do like pick up objects is causing hypertrophy). Even though its very light hyperthrophy, you are still preventing maximum loss of muscle, sure you are lossing both due to the low calories, but the most efficient way would be to eat carbs (not fat as it increases test levels) at the 800 cals that you are taking in.
You should seek help for your mental illness instead of going with it. You're a man. You're giving in to these urges and ideas instead of realizing that you can actually change. You are a man. Deal with it. Accept it. Strive to change. Stop riding society's victimhood and current le oppressed trend. Be real and be strong. Nobody's born the wrong gender. Unless you have a genetic disease, you are only fooling yourself and living like a fool.
How the fuck do you do cardio when your legs are constantly blasted from deadlifts, squats and cleans?
Daily reminder lifting is for those unfortunate enough to necessarily need it.

I've been lifting for 4 years now and have been considering getting on the gas.
My main question is ; how will I look, say 2 years after doing one 3 month cycle? Will have all the gains expired until I do another 3 month cycle again? Will I constantly be deflating and re-inflating based on when I am on a cycle?
I honestly don't think I could handle going from looking amazing to shit off and on.
Sticky. Read more. Read more after you think you've read enough. 90% nutrition. 8% training. 2% roids. Unless you fuck up your diet or training, you'll keep most of your gains after PCT. Lean gains
