Jumping on the picture train. My calves are probably the closest thing to gifted I have, or they came from being fat until I was 16. They're about 15 1/4 inches with a cold flex, is that decent?

Similarly to how my mid back is apparently underdeveloped, I'd say you're pretty majorly lacking in the lats department. Traps and upper are poppin out, but you've got almost no width, m8. Isn't the V-taper a huge part of aesthetics?

How to fix:
1: Supinated cable pull downs with slight backwards lean
2: Bent over rows with tucked elbows
3: Wide Grip cable pull downs - obviously
4: Deadlifting correctly

(I say cables instead of pull-ups because I think it's easier to concentrate on the lats with cables, and kipping is impossible.)

Number 4 is going to put the most size on you in the shortest amount of time, provided -like it says- you do it properly. Despite the ridiculous amount of back accessory work I do, my lats are typically the most fatigued after doing a ton of deadlift volume.
#39848 to #39845 - marinepenguin

(11/24/2015) [-]
And the v-taper is mostly caused by wider shoulders and a slimmer waist. The lats help but don't necessarily make or break it.

I've been focusing on them and there's been solid improvement, but one big problem I have is my lat insertions. They're pretty high so having that "wider then a door" look is gonna be pretty tough. Bonus is that I look pretty thick from the side because of it.

Stud Beefpile: the Obesity Chronicles - part 6:

Been maintaining at 220 for the past few weeks now. My bench feels amazing, but I'm starting to feel nauseous whenever I look in the mirror. Relaxed fit jeans are currently my only hope, as bending over or squatting down in regular pants spells certain death. As time goes on and I become more obese, I realize that no one will ever be able to love someone as disgusting and ugly as I am. With this in mind, I have married myself to the only party that would ever accept me - the iron.

p.s. this is what my back is looking like right now.

Yours until I finally end it all

To be fair, they're completely washed out by the light up there.

But yeah, I don't do shrugs or anything like that. What I have is strong enough to deadlift with, so I'm not really worried. I have recently added farmers carries into my programming though, so perhaps they'll see improvement then.

Well it's something I've noticed over many photos not necessarily this one, but true.

And farmers walks are great for helping out your traps. Personally I like high pulls and lawnmower pulls.

Though your mid back won't get much work from farmers walks.

What is this mid back you're talking about? I row like a mo-fo, and I have great back position with deadlifts. How could my mid back not be developed?

Maybe it's a pose thing? I'm spreading, not flexing. Most of the time people post back shots they're flexing.

And those are great, for your lats anyways. Especially since you're used to engaging your lats through deadlifts you also likely place the majority of your tension on them in rows through muscle memory. That's where things like t-bar rows or sitting cable rows come in.

And the mid back consists mostly of your lower traps,an area not effected so much by deadlifts, conventional rows or even farmers walks alone.

Lol. "Underdeveloped" just seems like a silly thing to say, considering they're more than developed enough for my sport. Maybe from an aesthetics standpoint, but we all know how I feel about that. It's all about perspective I guess. From my perspective, pretty much everyone else on this board has "underdeveloped" lumbar erectors, lats, quads, and pecs.

I'm jus talkin shit mayne, thanks for feedback.

When I say underdeveloped it usually means smaller in comparison to surrounding muscles. Weak is an entirely different thing. I had strong shoulders when I could overhead press 185, but I had small and underdeveloped shoulders.

But usually where someone is underdeveloped they are also weak, since a bigger muscle is usually stronger.

But you do you.

Wait, overhead press, or push press? Since when could you OHP 185? Isn't your bench like 250?

Like I said, strong enough to deadlift, and that's what matters. My 'mid back' isn't a prime mover in any of my lifts, and isn't holding me back in any way whatsoever.
#39832 to #39831 - marinepenguin

Overhead press. Bruh I did 185 on my OHP maybe 8 months ago or so before I started getting shoulder pain and switched to more pulling movements.

And like I said, it's not a concern of yours clearly.

Except I did mention it several times. Especially when my shoulder pain started to occur. You were also trying to reach a similar OHP at the time I think.

And my dad and younger brother has naturally strong shoulders so I'm assuming I get that as well. My 18 year old brother overhead presses at least 205.

Huh. There was a month or so a while ago when I didn't really do anything on this board, maybe it was around then and I never saw it.

I need to get back into OHP. I stopped doing it for a while to prioritize flat bench - started using incline as my main accessory to get a better carryover. Probs gonna go back to OHP once I'm done with this meet on the 5th. My best OHP numbers are 150 for 5x5, no idea what my max is. Very heavy OHP tends to bug my back since I hyper extended it a couple years ago doing some dancing nonsense, so I've always just pressed below my means.

decided to run today because why the fuck not... I ran a mile in 9 minutes. I am 190 lbs and easily 20-25% BF. My mile times in middle school were always like 12+ minutes. I never run, I always do some form of walking for "cardio" and weight training. Realy proud of myself.


If anyone would like to know how I went from 185-190 in the matter of a week heres how:

Went on a hunting trip. Sat in forest not moving for 5 hours straight for 3 days. All I ate was Nutty Bars and crackers w/ cheese. Secret to gains right there...

I went to the gym again after over a month of procrastination because I grew sick of my bro's shoulder injuries and wanted to try without a partner.
My muscles are already not used to weights again and I couldn't bench press properly even with a pitiful amount of weights, same when I tried incline bench press with dumbbells.
The rest went pretty smoothly, but Jesus, it's almost embarrassing how little I can pull off. Should go better next time, and damn the post-workout soreness feels good.

Also, MFW people don't remove the weights from the barbells and put them back in place.

Was away from my gym tonight, workout somewhere else. The bench fucking sucked, so I deviated from my program just a bit. (The racks were in this awful position where I could unrack the weight effectively with the wide grip I've been using).

Hit 275 for a relatively easy training max, then went on to hit 205 for 10, 10, 9, paused, close grip. 135 for 12, 12, 10 Spoto Press, legs up, 60 second rest. 225, for 4x5, paused, pre-exhausted. Then topped it off with a paused single at 245.

Bonus, here's a picture from tonight of myself (left) and my brother (not left). I'm 220 right now, easily the least obese I've ever looked at this weight, but obese none the less. My brother on the right sits at around 190, he's decently strong, considering he doesn't train for competition or anything, he just likes to be in shape. Squats around 315, benches around 245, deads around 385.

Traps are strong enough to pull 335 for 23, and that's enough for me!

For now, anyway.

My dad took me to the gym this morning. It's the first time since high school that I've legitimately exercised. It was light. My legs are killing me. Guys I'm made of noodles and I feel like I'm dying, is this really worth it?

Had a pretty good push day. Improved on every lift in some form or another. My bench still sucks hard though, I did 165 for 10, 185 for 8, 195 for 6, and 205 for 3. But I should start to rebound pretty quick now that I'm doing some lower reps.

I also found some wrist straps in my garage and tried them just for the hell of it. Bench felt a bit more stable and I liked it, but I don't have any wrist pain or anything like that when pressing so I don't think I NEED them. I'll probably use them when I down into the 3-5 rep ranges on bench press. I also used them for a set on rear overhead presses but it felt weird so I took them off right away.

Don't train with them. You undermine your wrist stability and weakens the joint which predisposes you to injuries down the road.

Even if I'm just using them for just mu main bench pressing? I wouldn't be using then for any other variation, it'd be maybe once a week.

Yeah you create biomechanical imbalances when you do that even if it's "just bench."
Think of the parts of your body that are supporting that weight in bench press. Wrists/Forearms/Hands. If you cannot lift the weight unassisted then you shouldn't be doing it.
Wrist straps should be reserved for max out lifts and weights that would otherwise put you in danger of injury.

Inb4 Studbeefpile doesn't have snapchat because he seems like the kind of person to not have snapchat.

Post a favorite workout.

>Build custom ankle braces so i can hang upside down on pull-up bar
>attach handcuffs to each hand, other end to 75lb dumbells
>Have someone slap raw beef and chicken on my core as i struggle to not pass out from blood on brain due to being upside down
>flail wildy dragging the dumbells across the floor as you try to make person stop.
>Wake up after each set (Pass out after 45-55 seconds) with huge pump in arms
This is how i get shredded cheesy alfredo abs and pasta noodle spaghetti arms.

Been bulking a little for 4 months, whaddya think, went from really twig to a bit less twig

had a 4 year pause due to health issues, so in 4 months I went from

70kg deadlift to 145kg deadlift x2
50kg squat to 110kg squat x3 (although, right now my squats are like 60 due to a leg injury, but it'll heal in no time. I can still do leg presses and hack squats so is k)
25kg bench press (bar with 10kg on it) to 85kg bench press x3

190cm tall, from 75kg to 71kg, currently at 11.2% body fat, from around 18% (I was skinny fat)

Convert the measures to America units yourself idk

That's good progress for 4 months. As lean as you are you could easily go on a good bulk and stay pretty lean if you bulk correctly.

We're a similar height and you're at a weight I started at before I started a bulk.

I was pretty big and lean about 6 years ago when I was in the military, sadly don't really have a picture, though.
Right now I'm taking 2500 calories-ish a day and 170g proteins, so I should get to a nice size in no time

How old are you? And 2500 is a little low, I'd be eating more iike 3000-3200 at the minimum. Personally I'm eating around 3800 a day, and I'm around 208-210 at 13-14% bodyfat.

Also what branch? I just got from Air Force basic about a month and a half ago, waiting to go to technical training in February

I'm 29, and I'm trying to keep a lean bulk, not get huge immediately. 200-ish calories above BMR is enough

Gotcha, and I understand but that still seems low if you are even a remotely active individual.

I've managed to stay below probably 16% bodyfat on a 4000 calorie diet when bulking up to 215. I put on almost 70 pounds and didn't lose my abs. But I preferred to up my conditioning if I was putting on too much fat instead of lowering my calories.

If 2500 calories works, then awesome. But I personally think you'll need a couple hundred more calories at least.
