Buds, I have found the way in which I will RECLAIM my throne as the BENCH KING of this board...

After a long time taking a break from wide grip pressing, and building up my musculature, I now return to it, reaping the crop of hypertrophy I had sewn. This was an easy single at 275 at the end of my workout.

I hit this with more in the tank after:
275, 2x3, Touch n Go, close(ish) grip
225, 1x10, Touch n Go, close(ish) grip
235, 3x5, wide grip, paused
255x1
265x1
275x1 (shown)

I'm sure I could've hit 285 as well, but 275 was already a pre-exhausted PR, and I had to go get ready for work, so I called it there. I'm certain I'll be hitting 300+ in no time after regaining proficiency with wide grip, because it felt fuckin gr8, even though it's been a long time since practicing it, AND I had already done a good deal of pressing.

Lol, you're trying too hard.

275 don't, but 320 will. Like I said, that 275 was done at the end of my workout, pre-exhausted. Fresh, I have about 300-310 in me right now, and I'm gonna be working my way up over the next month or so.

So I'm trying to figure out the reasons for this setup, is the heavier first couple touch and go sets supposed to help get you set up for the longer single set at a lower weight?

And then you're just working up to some heavy paused singles after your main 3x5 paused work?

Personally I've never benched this much in a single workout. I usually have 3-5 sets at max and then move on to other movements, that may or may not be bench variations.

All the touch and go work was there mostly as a strength test, since I practically never bench touch and go.

I'm a big fan of the idea of Training Maxes, and the principle of always touching some moderately heavy weight each workout (but not grinders). This workout was admittedly a bit odd though.

Operation Ground and Pound. A fitting song for the start of your journey, my son

Something that could definitely help you is just doing more pressing motions overall. OHP, Circus Dumbell, etc will all help your bench grow faster

If you TRULY wish to COMPLETELY and IRREVERSIBLY leave Humanity behind FOREVER, you could do what I did and do the Bulgarian method. That's the secret of how I got my my squat big in just a few months! Personal trainers HATE HIM!

Focused on improving my OHP hardcore a while ago. Went from 135 - 5x5, to 155 - 5x5. Bench went nowhere in that time. I think it works for some people, but not for others. Probs depends on shoulder structure and individual benching mechanics.

Probs just gonna focus on honing in this technique, and complementing it with close grip hypertrophy work. As far as Bulgarian is concerned, I may give it a shot some day, but right now I just don't have the time or energy to make such drastic programming changes.

Normally you are the son, but you have unquestionably out benched me, and for this, I call you my father....however my deadlift still FUUUUKKS urs - and my deadlift beats yours by a wider (like my back) margin than your bench beats mine. So i am BACK to bein ur fathlet, my son.

So I've been thinking about trying to get lean. I don't aim on being huge, or super strong, or anything like that. I like being the size that I am. I guess what I really mean is, I want to be cut(?)

I don't really want to do a lot of complicated stuff, and I was just thinking about doing simple things like push ups, sit ups, pull ups, runs and anything else that doesn't require just a shit ton of weights and stuff (like I said, my goal is not to get huge but just like, lean and cut) Are the any other recommendations, mostly for workouts, that I can do that can get me more defined and also raise endurance?

Getting lean is achieved through dieting down to a lower bodyfat % and exposing the muscle below the fat. It's significantly easier to get lean when you have more lean mass on your frame (muscle) than when you're just fat and bones, so full body workouts of bodyweight exercises are an ok place to start. Dips, pull ups, squats, lunges and pushups are a good place to start and do some hanging leg raises and planks for core. Go on hard runs or a bike ride a few times a week for endurance and do sprints for the extra calorie burn a 2-3 days a week.

Is there any good place to find out what to eat for food if you're lifting and want to lose weight but don't have a ton of fucking cash like most diet's i've seen that are like oh yea eat some sirloin steak for dinner and tilapia and all for lunch.

Buy frozen chicken and veggies in bulk from Walmart, Costco or Sam's club and Aldis isn't a bad option either. Peanuts, eggs and milk are also fairly inexpensive and have a lot of essential fats and are high in protein.

Does white sugar have a negative impact on muscle building when consumed in moderation? Too much is bad, that's a given, but I'm wondering if I should just keep going with staying away from it entirely or if that isn't necessary.

I'm not talking about sugars from fruits and such, mind you.

Sugars aren't necessarily bad, carbs when broken down by the body become simple sugars used for quick energy, which is why high carb meals are best eaten an hour or so before a workout.

But eating excess carbs or sugars can lead to higher levels of body fat as that energy becomes stored instead of used. Personally I think eating high carb foods like breads, pastas, and rice before a workout, then lower carb meals high in protein post workout is a good strategy.

I mean it helps a little because ok no equipment and no gym but you haven't given me anything for what you actually want.

Less fat and more muscle? well that's too dang vague.
Cardio reduces your fat but doesn't give you muscle, doing easy exercises for long duration help burn off fat. This is stuff like jogging and shit.

Doing "heavy exercises" for a short duration is good for building muscle like lifting weights but in your case maybe pullups and a lot of pushups quickly or something. I think they call these aerobic and anaerobic exercises but don't quote me on that.

I mean you can do whatever you want you know? Lose some fat and get muscles later or get muscles now so when you lose the fat you got some nice muscles to look at.

And I'm pretty sure losing fat in a specific area is all a lie, you lose fat throughout your whole body.

So just really started lifting while dieting to lose weight. Max bench hit 150. Almost couldn't do it... Need more practice. Training at 130 with 3 sets of 4 for bench. beyond that simple exercises for shoulders and biceps. Question though, if any of y'all have found a weak spot in your arms bones(past injury in my case) that hurts consistently before and after lifting, what are the remedies y'all know, or the things to be done to prevent further injury? In my case its in my Ulna in my right arm, broke it in the past and an idiot at work dropped a heavy beam which injured it not that long ago.

Okay, real talk. Looks like you could stand to get considerably tighter off the bat - looks like the bar got away from you a bit. Part of the way you fix that is by focusing on tightening your lats a bit more, and trying to pull your shoulders back into your torso (I think a lack of this could be why you had to do that extra shrug at the top to lockout your shoulders). Other than that, I didn't see anything seriously wrong, although of course it is difficult to tell anything for sure from that angle.

Well like when I was back home, pull day was my longest with heavy deadlifts, rows, shrugs and then weighted pull-ups for high volume. After deadlifts and rows I could barely hold onto the bar for anything else. So straps became necessary, but I'd switch things up and use straps for different movements and try to use them as little as possible, but they're extremely useful for high volume when your smaller forearms fatigue before the dozen muscles in your back do.

Not with that attitude, m8000.

I do a shitton of back work too, in fact I can confidently say I have you beat in the posterior development department. Your gripping muscles are made to be very durable, that's why they're trained better by prolonged TUT as opposed to heavy grip work (however the hell that'd work...). They're like the calves of your upper body.

Only thing you handily beat me on in terms of size is your lats, in my opinion.

And I don't disagree that you should aim to have stronger forearms, but if straps help you and you don't NEED to have a strong grip for competition purposes it's not hurting anything if you aren't relying on them.

I get not necessarily having drive to squat bench and dead on the platform, but wouldn't having vice grips on your wrists be an excellent thing to have in any physical situation?

You aren't understanding me. I'm not saying you shouldn't have a strong grip, I'm saying that straps are a good tool to use in certain situations, and that not using them because it's "cheating" is only limiting yourself in the gym. If you have a weak grip from using straps, you're using them wrong.

And lats are a large muscle, but they contribute mostly to back width and overall thickness. The lats, rhomboids, rear delts, and overall yolk of the back is a huge area as well, especially aesthetically.

I mean I guess. Not using straps has never held me back, personally.

Well as far as I know you've never even used them for a consistent period of time either.

You keep going back to, straps = weak grip, for some reason.

Hey so I am wondering if anyone else has heard that to burn fat one must workout for 30 minutes to burn if the sugar that the body will lose. So I was thinking of a way to burn a lot of fat but not lose muscle which is to lift for 30 minutes then run. Idk if this is already out there but I can't find anything about it on the internet so I was wondering if this sounds plausible?

It is and it isn't. It's going to be a constant struggle as you taking in less calories and burning more to lose fat. However, in order to gain appropriate muscle and strength, you need more calories to bulk and add on.

Running for half an hour before or after your lift is always a good way to meet the best of both worlds. Just don't be surprised if your strength is not improving.

I remember reading something like this. Seems to be that your body burns sugars before it burns the fat reserves and ultimately protein in the dire need of energy (protein in this case being your lean muscle).
Running for a warm up and then lifting for a good 30+ minutes finishing it up with a lengthy running session is the most effective thing I'v heard of doing.

You lose fat by eating less calories than your body burns. Exercise helps by 1) burning additional calories and 2) building muscle, which requires more calories than fat to maintain weight.

One more thing: Good ab exercises?

Weighted hanging leg raises and cable crunches.

You need to treat your abs like any other muscle. Doing just the core lifts isn't going to give you well developed abs.

Two things:

1. Does anyone know any really good low cal/fat recipies, prefferably inexpensive?

2. How do I stay motivated to work out/eat healthy?

Oatmeal and a banana. Eggs, broccoli, carrots, and broth. Salmon is moderately priced but great for weight loss. Chicken in bulk is a good idea, it can be frozen until you're ready to eat.

Don't be a quitting pussy.

I'd say do the Arnold Blueprint for Mass if you want a real challenge and sick gains.

If you just started it will get harder. And no doubt it on the days it tells you. Other wise you are not following the program

Does eating less carbs specifically increase weight loss, or is it just cutting one thing out of your diet that does it? because if I eat only 1200 calories and its mostly carbs, would I lose noticeably more if it was almost no carbs? If so, would I see the same results cutting something else out of my diet instead?

I'm asking because I have family in other countries that say that the diet trend over there is to only eat carbs, it's called the bread diet or something, and it's marketed the exact same way not eating carbs is here.

An all carb diet is very inefficient. Your body can turn unused calories from fat and protein into glucose, your bodies primary fuel but carbs cannot be turned into fat or protein.

Contrary to popular belief, fats are very important to bodily function and are largely responsible for keeping your hormones balances due to the impact on testosterone production. Protein is also the building block of muscle and our bodies cannot synthesize all of the essential amino acids needed, so we get it from external sources. Cutting out too much protein will lead to losing more muscle, even on less aggressive dieting.

I'd recommend keeping your carbs moderate when trying to diet down and increase them when trying to gain weight.

Okay. So what should I eat for energy that's low carbs? I've been eating apples, yogurt, and "healthy" fruit/grain bars because it's a fair amount of energy for very few calories, but it has a lot of carbs.

Any food will give your body energy. If you're feeling super tired all the time, you may be dieting too aggressively or need to sleep more. Caffeine helps too.

Any food will give me energy of course, but some more than others. I'm looking for the most energy for fewest calories, which at the moment I get from the high carb things I listed. Meat, like ground beef and salmon are low carb, but high calories.

A calorie is a unit of energy, when on a diet to lose weight youre technically starvong yourself . You're going to get your best results from eating meats, veggies and beans because they're packed with essential vitimans, are fairly low calorie and make you feel full for longer.

I'm trying to lean up, so would it be efficient/safe to take a fat burner while trying to bulk?
