I would have put pull ups but I can't really see him doing pull ups unless there's a bar. I mean, he might be able to go to some place and do pull ups.

Also THISISNOTFUNNY I'd recommend you getting this:
www.walmart.com/ip/Pure-Fitness-Multi-Purpose-Workout-Bar/26909661
Or something similar. Because pull-ups are very important.
User avatar #17520 - marinepenguin (09/06/2014) [-]
He should at least attempt them, if he can do only one, then work at it until you can do two and work your way up. I don't have a pullup bar, I use a support beam in my garage, it actually makes it harder to do pullups on there.

Inspired by the spectrum of my ancestors, lead by the herald of Athens Hermes, I impart the creed as a warning, but also as a cruel reminder of the fate of the unkempt and the brown blood.

You who has been afflicted with the curse of pigmentation, born of sin and raised in unholy union should never glance at the sight of Rome with pride, nor be covered in the grandeur of the Nile.

A wretched thing twisted by lust and self hatred, created in the fires of hedonistic indulgence, truly no creature is more akin to the spawn of Hades than you and your ilk.

As the Hebrew God rested a penance on the brow of Cain, covering him in an eternal darkness, so have your forebears be punished for summoning your unclean form onto the realm of man and beast.

Merciless will the world be to you, foul abomination and enemy of creation, but hear me when I say that even your grotesque form may find the favor of the true children of the land, saving yourself from perdition.

Speak now, renounce your repulsive ascension and give away your machinations, swearing upon all that is just that you will never burden the world with your seed, nor soil the blood of the white woman, graceful and unhindered.

Your blood is impure chief. The master race will forever elude you as your white blood is suppressed by the parasitic darkness that is your fate.

Such an outcome is the destiny for all of the mixed, rejected by mother earth and an affront to nature you will walk the aisles of life as an outcast, with your innermost thoughts haunted by the realization that you were never meant to be.

Begone poor devil spawn, for my sympathy is outweighed by my resolve, associating with demon blood can only bring foul premonitions on my pure soul.

User avatar #280 to #279 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
Really? What branch is he in?

I just recently joined the Air National Guard. My unit has a reputation for getting a lot of deployments, so chances are that I'll be in a bad situation at some in my 6 years.
User avatar #281 to #280 - teoyuppie ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
He was in the Marines. Served from 2004-2007ish. Fought in the harshest situations when **** really hit the fan in Fallujah. Also in Najaf and Baghdad. Got wounded when his hummvee was avoiding an IED. But he's doing well. No signs of PTSD, he's fully mobile and got out in one piece and maintains a great job. So we're all thankful he's doing well. I still remember flying down with my father to Parris Island when he graduated that summer. It gave me a deeper appreciation for our troops.
User avatar #282 to #281 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
Well that's awesome. In the movie they are in Fallujah for quite some time. I'm glad to hear he got out in one piece physically and mentally. I haven't even gotten to basic yet, but in my student flight I've already gotten to appreciate the camaraderie and discipline.
User avatar #283 to #282 - teoyuppie ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
If only more people had that spirit. My brother's in the Navy in near the Florida border and he tells me that some people just don't give a rat's ass about following orders. Mostly urban youth, people who are overweight and cheat on the physicals and some sexual situations. Some with military wives some with women in service. It's soiling the morale. But I guess **** happens and the military will handle it.
User avatar #284 to #283 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah those people irritate the hell out of me. People are in the military either because they're patriotic or they just consider it a job. It should be more then that. I decided a long time ago that I was going to get involved in the military as some point, my father was in the navy as a search and rescue and I wanted to continue the military tradition. Unfortunately the National Guard is all I can do while in college. If a large scale war broke out I know that I'd try to join the TACPs and enlist full time.
User avatar #285 to #284 - teoyuppie ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
Honestly, I considered enlisting but I was too far into college to do so. I would have done it not for myself, but for the love of my country and to rightfully earn that title of a Marine. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey, just 20 minutes away from Manhattan. A lot of people in my town went to work there and unfortunately we lost a good amount of people on 9/11. I still remember it like it was yesterday. My mom also knew people when they were kids who were taken on that day, I'm always meeting new people and eventually find out that they lost a parent, our area stopped holding ceremonies after the anniversary because it was too much for a lot of us. But I'd say 9/11 was a day that made me appreciate my family, my country and our men and women in uniform more than ever. If ever you head out to NYC I highly recommend you check out the memorial. I was just there this past summer and it was breathtaking. Got me choked up honestly.
User avatar #286 to #285 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
I'm in a small town in the Midwest so fortunately we didn't lose anyone around here. Being a small rural town with big guns and a rich history of veterans you can imagine how we all reacted after that day. We have a lot of Iraq veterans over here because of it. I was in first grade at the time, but I remember being dismissed from school and seeing everyone cry.

I'll make it a point to visit someday. I admit I don't feel like I'm doing as much as I can just being in the guard, I don't think I deserve the title of airman even. Only people who give their full time and enlist deserve that.
User avatar #287 to #286 - teoyuppie ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
I truly believe what you're doing counts. Every little contribution in the efforts of freedom matters no matter what. Your area sound so Americana with the veterans. I can't imagine what it must be like on Memorial Day and Independence Day.

Regardless I'll still give those enlisted men the respect they deserve.

And it's crazy. Barbeques, services, speeches, parades. Out of every graduating class (40-60 every year) a good 2-5 will be headed straight to basic for the air force or boot for other branches. I remember on veterans day programs when I was in grade school, our new gym that held 1100 people was standing room only. Standing ovations, 21 gun salutes and all. My father rarely went because he felt he didn't deserve the honor. He was in during the first gulf war and he knew guys that got killed, but he never fired a shot being just naval search and rescue.

User avatar #252 to #251 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/23/2014) [-]
I've always worked like a mix of powerlifting and bodybuilding. I always worked in the 5-8 rep range, so I gained strength and size at the same time. Then recently I went purely with 5 reps and focused on strength for about 6 months. Now I've been doing a lot more bodybuilding type workouts to try and get bigger and improve my base of strength.
User avatar #253 to #252 - nyawgga (12/23/2014) [-]

User avatar #254 to #253 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/23/2014) [-]
Yeah that's actually the best idea for people who've been lifting for a few years. Just starting out it's best to stick with something like 5x5 and build up a base of size and strength.
User avatar #255 to #254 - nyawgga (12/23/2014) [-]

Is there a certain point I should reach where I should move onto bodybuilding?
User avatar #256 to #255 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/23/2014) [-]
Well if you're wanting to become a bodybuilder, I'd say you can begin a bodybuilding routine once you hit a 1.5x bodyweight bench, 2x Squat, at least a 2x deadlift, and a .75 overhead press. That's just my opinion though.

Now where did this come from?

I don't know what
User avatar #233 to #232 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/18/2014) [-]
Upon further investigation, you were on the science board after I posted my link. So I'll assume you came from there.

But I'm curious, why do you think that civilizations would commit suicide intentionally? What would lead them to believe that that was the best course of action?
User avatar #234 to #233 - cognosceteipsum (12/18/2014) [-]
I actually actually came from religion board, went to the science board after looking through your comments

Its just that life's generally empty. We fill it with stuff but It doesn't last and we'll never really be satisfied. Just what I think. Oh and the diseases and pain and evil and stuff.. too many "and" but whatever. If someone could change my view of this sure. But that's how I believe for the moment.
User avatar #235 to #234 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/18/2014) [-]
I don't really agree with that. I completely accept that life has no real purpose beyond just pure reproduction of our species, and that we have no real meaning in the world, but yet I'm still fascinated by the idea of going to space and discovering all that we possibly can. There will always be people like me who are curious and hopeful for the future, regardless of the reasons that we exist. So while many people may find that the world is bleak and terrible, others may see just the opposite.

In the end I think our natural curiosity and basic instinct to survive will overcome any feelings of hopelessness or uselessness. Just look at so many people who have been in terrible and hopeless situations, instead of just dying, they were desperate to survive and lived one day at a time. That alone proves to me that we wouldn't kill ourselves off as a species just because "life is meaningless and it sucks to be alive". Humanity will endure for as long as we don't kill ourselves off or we aren't killed off.

Most people give up? Or most people endure?
User avatar #239 to #238 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/18/2014) [-]
Exactly. Although that's one interesting concept as to why we haven't found any intelligent life as of yet. That they kill themselves off before they can advance far enough to explore space.

In my opinion it isn't because there aren't any other species out there, it's either that

1) We simply haven't encountered any yet. The sheer distance between stars creates a barrier between us and other races.

2) We have actually been discovered by other species, but they just monitor our progress and don't attempt to interact with us physically for whatever reason.

3) We have been discovered by other species in the past, and perhaps they even met some of our ancestors (watered down version of the "ancient alien" theory), and that they monitor/ guide our species in an attempt to create another interstellar civilization

4) We are currently interacting with alien species, but our governments are hiding that fact from us from reasons that vary from "massive changes in basic human social structure" to "keeping panic at bay because we have no way of keeping these beings from killing us whenever" and everything in between.

Or even a multitude of other reasons. I think other alien species existing that are intelligent is not only likely, but inevitable. It may even be possible that once we reach the level of an interstellar civilization we could discover that there is in fact a whole society of different species existing in space, in some kind of "star wars" fashion.

I'm not saying you have to pick one to believe in, I'm saying that you should be open to all possibilities. If you believe wholeheartedly in one thing when it comes to science, you'll probably be disappointed. For me, whatever happens, happens. If we are alone in this universe, then humanity has endless potential to explore and learn (although we will most definitely remain divided for eternity). If we are not, the we will see how that goes as well.

Barbell Training Guide for Beginners

Intro
Barbell training is one of the best forms of exercise out there. It’ll make you big, strong, fast, explosive, and make you look pretty damn good. This comes at the cost of discipline in what you eat, what you do, and hard work at the gym. Barbell training almost always centers around big compound movements, with most emphasis usually placed on the 3 “big lifts” like the Squat, Bench, and Deadlift. Other notable movements include the pull up, overhead press, rows, weighted lunges and front squat, but most programs put a large amount of focus on the big 3.

Basics
Now if you don’t know how to bench, squat, deadlift, or really do any of the movements that I mentioned before (which most of you probably don’t), I would highly recommend that you find someone who does and have them teach you. Some of these lifts can be highly technical and take some technique to learn, and the better your form from the start, the better and more easily you will progress. If you can’t find someone to help you in person, look up how to videos on YouTube and try your best to replicate them. Spend a few weeks simply getting down the movement and teaching yourself proper form. Then we can really get to the fun par, adding weight.

Now as a beginner your body has a remarkable ability to recover from stress, this allows you to get stronger and better at moving more weight every single workout. This means that you should go up by 5 pounds on bench, and 10 pounds on squat and deadlifts, every single time you set foot in the gym at first. If you fail and you can’t get that weight that specific workout, keep the weight the same and try again the next workout, don’t go up in weight until you can finish the previous amount.
User avatar #225 to #220 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Diet

Now depending on your goals, your diet will vary extremely. Losing and gaining weight all depends on your caloric intake, if you eat more calories then your body needs to maintain itself you will gain weight, the opposite occurs if you eat fewer calories than your body needs.

Gaining weight
To gain weight all you need to do is find out how many calories your body needs to maintain itself, then eat 500-800 calories more, while eating close to your lean body mass weight in grams of protein (For instance, if you weigh 180lbs, but you're carrying 10-15lbs of fat, then you'll only need to eat about 150 grams of protein a day). Ideally, you'd eat mostly clean foods, but it isn't completely necessary. You'll just feel a little bit better. Clean foods are not processed, not fast food, not junk. If you have to wonder to yourself “is this good for me?" It probably isn’t. Although when it comes to gaining weight, you have a bit more leniency than if you were losing weight. You can eat some fast food every few days to help get in more calories and protein, you can eat some "bad" calorie dense foods on occasion for the same reason. Now note that I say on occasion, or every few days, I don’t mean that McDoubles should be your main source of calories every other day.

User avatar #224 to #221 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Now the reason that you only want to eat a certain amount of calories above maintenance level is becuase your body can only gain .25-.5 pounds of muscle mass per week at a maximum on average. Once your body's capacity to build muscle has been exceeded, you will start to pile on the fat. That being said, there are some people who are known as “hard gainers” these people have naturally super quick metabolisms and have a resistance to gaining mass even when eating at a caloric surplus, these people have also been known as ectomorphs traditionally. One way to get past this is to literally force your body to grow by eating even more food. If you find that after eating at a caloric surplus of 500-800 calories a day you only gain about a pound a month, start upping your calories, try to eat up to 3500 or even 4000 calories a day to force your body to build muscle and gain mass.

User avatar #223 to #222 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Losing Weight
Losing weight is a bit more complicated, you find your maintenance level and then you eat about 400 below that, and you can add in some low level activity like walking to burn more calories, while weightlifting to put more metabolic stress on large parts of your body, raising your metabolism. This will cause you to shed nearly pure fat while holding onto your muscle, and you may even be able to gain small amounts of muscle. You generally shouldn't eat below a 600 calorie deficit, especially with exercise. Doing that can cause your body to go into a starvation mode and accumulate metabolic damage, which makes your body resistant to fat loss and can kill muscle gains. Basically your body thinks it won’t be getting food, so it tries to force itself to sustain it’s current weight by dropping it’s metabolism to nearly zero. Many people force themselves into having this affliction, then give up after seeing few results and begin to eat regularly again. This causes them to gain even more fat and thus the cycle will continue when they try to lose weight again. Do things right, take things slow.
User avatar #226 to #223 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/15/2014) [-]
It's been awhile since I've changed the paper up. What did you revise?
User avatar #227 to #226 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
Mostly stuff about weight loss and weight gain, since I have first hand experience with weight loss (lost 50lbs a couple years ago, was fat **** ).

For instance, previously it said you should NEVER EVER go below a 400 calorie deficit, because it'll cause you to go into starvation mode. That's simply not true. You have to be eating a really really small amount of food for that to happen.

I also changed the protein intake portion. You don't need to eat exactly your body weight in grams of protein. You don't need to be eating extra protein for fat that you have. I weigh 210 right now, and I only eat 170 to 180 grams per day, and I have no problem gaining strength and size.

I also modified the part on clean eating. The truth of the matter is that Calories in vs Calories out is all there is to it. Clean eating just isn't completely necessary for everyone.

Other than that, I just fixed a couple grammatical errors.
User avatar #228 to #227 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/15/2014) [-]
When you are incredibly fat you can easily go below that because your body knows that it has plenty of left over energy stores. As your stores get lower, your body begins to lower your metabolism as it tries to stall weight loss. This can lead to people exercising harder to try and make up for less fat loss, and cause even more metabolic damage. Then you can further spiral down by eating even less and exercising even more, causing your metabolism to plummet and you to become lethargic.

I've seen a lot of people I know do this, and it only takes about a month to start becoming lethargic and sick feeling. I should have worded it differently, but I'm trying to keep people from entering this downward spiral. A 400 calories deficit with exercise can make you lose 5 pounds a month at the very least, that's 60 pounds in a year. Can you make a larger deficit and see progress? Yeah of course. Do you need to? Not at all.


That's fairly true, honestly I've read all kinds of things about it, like how we only need .5 g of protein for every pound all the way up to 2g per pound for maximum results. So I try to stay at least up to my poundage in lean mass in protein, but it's good to get people used to eating at LEAST 150 grams of protein a day. Once again, my wording could be better.

And true, but I'm a firm believer that not all calories are created equal. You can lose weight while eating McDonalds every day, but you won't feel nearly as good as if you ate home cooked meals that were full of veggies, fruits, and lean meats. That's just for losing weight though. For gaining mass you don't have to super clean, I have fast food every 2 to 3 days to help keep my calories up.

But thanks for the help man. I'll change some stuff up on my main copy that I have and write a little bit more. I'll try to keep everyone updated on current copies and whatnot.
User avatar #229 to #228 - studbeefpile (12/15/2014) [-]
That 50lbs was lost in 5 months, by the way.

I used to think the same thing about calories being different, but I've found with both experience, and other sources like this - www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4eaJe_lKsU&list=UUNqbcf-5nORpyfzrqQNLSVw - that calories really are calories. Of course it's not always ideal, but it isn't supremely important.

Anyway, let me know if you need anything else on it.

User avatar #200 to #199 - marinepenguin ONLINE (11/13/2014) [-]
Shoulders may not be back. Tuck your shoulder back, like your trying to push the middle of your back forward. If I saw you in person I could help. Basically if you aren't using your back properly, and letting your arms hang too much, your biceps will take over.
User avatar #201 to #200 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (11/13/2014) [-]
I try to keep my back straight like your supposed too and not move my shoulder, it's what I mainly focus on. I think I might try the snatch pull and power clean stuff. I probably asked this before but anything else you could think of for back except those 4?

Barbell rows are really effective, so I doubt you are doing them correctly.

As for other movements, you could try dumbbell rows, landmine rows, and there's a couple otthers where their names are escaping me right now.

Barbell rows are way better. Keep progressing at them. Add 5 pounds every week like you would one of the big lifts. Build ya some huge lats. I just haven't done them as much because they irritate my lower back.

I'm thinking I need around 120g protein/day if I weigh 135lb now. I don't think my diet however it has transformed to be incredibly more healthy, as in I used to eat McD and hot pockets 24/7 and now the worst I'll have is subway has enough protein so I wanna buy some protein powder for shakes. You got any good, cheap product you know of and also any recipes? Like how much should I add? How much grams of protein should be in my shake anyhow? 50/ 75 over kill?

Also is it bad to have pizza pizza every friday? It's a family dinner thing but I can drop it if it's really bad. I'm sure 8 slices gives a lot of calories though.
User avatar #165 to #164 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
You can never really get too much protein. After a certain point your body just doesn't use it to repair muscle anymore and the extra goes into your waste. So just get some whey protein, 20-40 grams per shake is pretty normal.

As for the pizza, if you are wanting to gain size, 8 pieces of pizza aren't going to kill you. Remember that in bulking periods as long as you are eating decent most of the time, you'll be okay. A pizza or fast food a few times a week may actually be good, it's cheap easy calories that can help you put on size. Just don't make fast food a habit all the time. Subway is actually pretty good.

there is soo many different whey protein brands to choose from, is there any difference really between them? Should i try to get the cheapest price for most amount?
User avatar #169 to #168 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
I would find a brand somewhere in the middle. Get something from GMC preferably. If you get something cheaper it'll have a lot of filler **** in there that isn't the best. The super high quality stuff isn't worth the cash. Elite Whey Protein from GMC is okay.
User avatar #170 to #169 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
ca.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/whey.html for something like this. It just says 24grams of protein, is that per serving? And how many scoops is something like 2 or 5lb of protein anyhow?
User avatar #173 to #170 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
It says 74 servings. So if you have two scoops a day that leaves you 37 days worth if you get a 5 pound tub.
User avatar #174 to #173 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
damn so 5lb - 37 days - $80 x 10 periods of time in a year = $800 a year approx. **** that's a lot but I guess it's worth it.

No problem. They're normally in the pharmacy section. Usually around 20 bucks a pop.

User avatar #171 to #170 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
That would work just fine.

Normally 1 serving is 1 scoop. I almost always have 2 scoops.

And I don't know exactly how much there is in each one, but normally one of those things will last me a week or two. Depending if I have one shake or two a day.

I don't think I get enough calories in my diet. Have any high calorie but good food in mind? The ones without the bad-for-you fat like McD.

User avatar #167 to #166 - marinepenguin ONLINE (10/13/2014) [-]
Honestly I can't think of any foods that have a lot of calories, a lot of protein and are good for you. That's why a burger from dairy queen or whatever won't kill you every couple days. Berries and fruits obviously can't be bad things.

how do you feel about sugar (23g for 2.6L) and non-sugar orange juice (that 100% pure **** ). Is it bad if I drink like 2L a week?
When i started working out I stopped drinking cola which i used to drink like 3L a week. I crave juice sometimes.v

Not all sugar is bad. Orange juice is fine. You don't have to dial in in your diet that badly.

Fast food isn't too bad for you every now and then. It's very calorie dense and it can help you get in more calories a day. So while having a pizza or burger every couple days won't hurt, don't go overboard.

How is your diet like? I'm guessing you track calories and make sure to eat the recommended amount needed to gain muscle at your current height/weight/age.

I have a lot of time on my hands this semester and I've been working out everyday for the past 2 weeks. I'v been repeating
1. Abs, legs (main focus is abs though)
2. Chest and Back area
3. Shoulders, Biceps and Triceps
but I've noticed that I feel using my Arm muscles during focus on the Chest/back area so I should probably go about doing a upper body/leg split where I alternate? Giving my chest, back, abs and arms just enough time for the protein synthesis window, the next day focusing on legs? I really am OK with working out everyday, I truly have the time for it, I have only 4 hours of class. So basically do you think this split is ok? Most people on /fit/ see no problem with it? inb4 beginurs suldnt do so moch, no pls
User avatar #124 to #123 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
I work out 1.5 hrs each day, at home also. About to get a bench that is incline-able.
User avatar #125 to #124 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
My diet has become a bit more relaxed recently, but when I was seriously into the diet I made sure I ate 4000 calories a day and had 200+ grams of protein a day.

Now I'm probably doing about 3500 a day while eating 180ish grams of protein a day and still seeing some steady gains.

My tip is, if you aren't too much into getting HUGE and super strong, then you don't have to worry TOO much about diet, just eat enough, and avoid the ******** foods, and get enough protein without overtraining and you'll be fine.

I'll continue with training in the next comment.
User avatar #128 to #125 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
Training wise, everyone is different, you'll have to experiment (and more then likely fail horribly) with what you think works best for your body type. I'm tall, so I did a ton of volume with a lot of compound movements, and that's what worked for me for a while.

Now in my opinion with your workout, I wouldn't worry about abs, most if not all of the big movements need the abs to stabilize the movement, so they'll grow and get strong along with every other part of your body.

I would also recommend a separate day for Chest, shoulders, back, and legs. With what you are doing you are working out your triceps and biceps 2 days in a row, with workouts specifically geared towards them. Not necessary. When you do chest or shoulders you'll also be working your triceps, and on back day you'll be doing biceps.

I honestly have no experience with an upper and lower body split, but I can imagine that if you are doing dozens of sets during a workout you are on a road to overtraining. You should really work one muscle with no more then 14 total sets, that includes movements where the muscle is only a secondary mover, like bench would include working triceps.

If I were you, I would continue to do something similar like you are doing now, except cut out ab work, do back and chest separately, and dedicate one day to shoulders. On chest and shoulder days throw in a few tricep movements, on back day throw in a few bicep movements. Focus on the big lifts, I cannot stress this enough, want to see serious size and strength gains? Center your workouts around Bench, Squat, Deadlift, and Overhead press. Improve your lifts every week in some way.
User avatar #132 to #128 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
"and dedicate one day to shoulders"
Are you sure, that's pretty hard especially since the shoulder is like a secondary muscle to many of the other upper body workout and vice-versa. Most of the shoulder workouts i've done give me the biggest burn in the bicep/tricep muscle area anyways.
User avatar #133 to #132 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
The shoulder is a primary muscle, it is responsible for a massive amount of movements when it comes to upper body. I neglected shoulders with that same kind of thinking for a long time, and now that I've dedicated a day to shoulders and overhead pressing, my shoulders have grown and nearly doubled in strength. That in turn has increased my bench, making my chest larger, and my triceps larger and stronger.

The only thing that I would keep an eye on, is make sure you don't do a lot of pressing movements. Especially if you decided to do chest and shoulders on the same day, terrible programming and really **** with your shoulders, and shoulder health is something that you struggle to get back when you lose it.

Here's an example of my general shoulder workout.

Overhead press 5x5
Landmine press 5x8
Leaning side raise 5x8

That's it, and I'm an intermediate lifter. You don't have to spend 3 hours in the gym and do 15 movements to see results, those guys you see that do that tend to look the same every year.
User avatar #136 to #133 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
Well see to me that seems so.. easy I hate to say it. I feel much more soreness from like 15-20 reps + then from just 5-8, you barely even feel the muscle pain. You more so feel the inability to lift such a heavy object, I can't describe it so well, but its a totally different feeling for me.
User avatar #140 to #136 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
If you are lifting a weight that is heavy enough to where you are struggling on the last rep or two, you will still feel sore at first. Eventually you won't get very sore.

You'll have to get into your mind the soreness does not always equal a good workout. It's easy for a trainer to trash someone and make them feel like they did something, it's hard to make them actually see results.

If you do what you are doing now, you will see some results, because you are a novice and your body will adapt and become bigger and stronger. Do that consistently for a year with a good diet and you may gain 20 pounds, but then after 3 more years you could be the same weight. If you did it right and kept things simple, you'll put on 40+ pounds of weight in a year if you eat enough. Then you should gain 10 pounds at the absolute minimum every year after that. Trust me, I've seen it happen again and again, with friends I've helped train, with my brother, and with myself.
User avatar #150 to #140 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
Sorry for asking so much questions, just need to finish understanding this **** so I can finally get to work without being paranoid of doing it wrong.
User avatar #149 to #140 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
Ok thanks for the advice.
So, I guess I just have a couple other questions to get me on tract.

Do you have any schedule in mind that has me working out every day? (Like I said I really have the time for it).
You said I should have one day just for shoulders, that would mean I couldn't do the split day workouts right? How would that work with other muscle groups though?
I guess this comes back to the do you have a schedule in mind for me. And what kinda shoulder exercises should I do on shoulder day if that's the way I should go, the one's you wrote above I'm guessing^?
If you are to make a schedule could you please specify the number of sets I should have (and how much should I rest in between sets anyways?)?

So far I've been doing high volume **** like I said.
Like for example on Bicep, Tricep Shoulder day I had like:
______ 3 sets to failure
_______ 3 sets to failure
______ 3 sets to failure
______ 3 sets to failure
_______ 3 sets to failure
_______ 3 sets to failure
______ 3 sets to failure

But after reading your advice and gaining knowledge on the internet, I know now that's obv not the best way to go about it.
User avatar #154 to #149 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
You really shouldn't work out EVERY day, your body will need rest, even when you are only stressing certain muscles on certain days.

I know what you mean though, because I don't like working out every other day even because I feel like I can do more. So I go 4 days in a row. Back, Chest, Legs, Shoulders, then have an off day before starting again. If you want to do something like that then you would have to lower the amount of work you would do each day, because like I've said before, over training could be an issue.

In any given workout, the general rule is to do no more then 12-14 sets per muscle group. And that doesn't mean just the primary muscles, it means the secondary movers in the lift too. So for Bench you would include triceps in there as well, along with a little shoulders (I would worry about that so much unless you are doing shoulders the same day as chest).

The only shoulder movement that I would highly highly recommend is the overhead press, although since some peoples shoulders may not be healthy that lifts pains them, if you cannot do overhead presses (which I'd bet money that you'll have no issues), I would do landmine shoulder presses instead. But make overhead press your priority, then add in a few movements (like 2 or 3) that work different angles of the shoulder (Front, side, and rear)

As for your high volume workout, never ever ever ever go to failure that many times in a workout. I haven't gone to failure in a lift for at least a few months, not once. As for resting between sets, 90 seconds is usually the rule, but I never time my rest periods, I just go with how I feel, and don't let myself lose focus or get out of the zone.

One tip I just thought of, a BIG one. Keep a training journal. Write down all your lifts, how much you do and how many sets and reps you do. Keep track of your workouts.
User avatar #155 to #154 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
OK thanks man.

So you do Back, Chest, Legs, Shoulders, Rest and repeat? Doesn't that overwork your arms because usually a lot of the shoulder/chest/back workouts use it as a secondary muscle? and your doing them 3 in a row.
User avatar #156 to #155 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
Yes that is my routine.

And your arms are not one muscle group. You can't work your biceps and triceps at the same time in one movement. So When I do back I'll be working biceps, thus my triceps get a break. On Chest day I work Triceps, so Biceps get a break. On legs both get a break. And on shoulders I don't implement any tricep working movements other then overhead presses, so they really don't get a ton of work. The days where they get the most work are on Back (and bicep) day, and chest (and tricep) day. Understand?
User avatar #157 to #156 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, do you literally make sure to work on Back and Bicep/Chest and tricep (individually) or do they just usually go together in an exercise?
User avatar #158 to #157 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
You can throw in some curls on back day, but a lot of back movements work biceps as well. I tend to make chest a tricep day as well, so I throw in some skullcrushers or close grip bench presses.
User avatar #151 to #149 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
Well if you start off right (when 99% of people don't) you'll definitely create a great base of strength and size within a year. I'm actually starting my back day right now, so I'll answer your post in full when I'm finished.

To be honest though, I'd really like that. Going into uni next year so I'd like to get as fit is possible. Should I maybe even go above the recommended amount of daily calories and protein.

User avatar #129 to #127 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
Not necessary, it'll take years to reach the point where you will be considered an advanced lifter. If you eat any more then 4000 calories (which may be too many for you if you are shorter) you will gain fat, you can't just gain as much muscle as you want. Work to get good at the movements, then worry about size gains. Honestly I could write a book about this and I'm trying to keep this short and sweet, so bear with me if I take a while.

And honestly you really don't need to do any more then 4-6 movements per workout, depending on what you are doing and how far along you are.
User avatar #135 to #129 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
i never understood that, why do only 4-6 movements per workout when you can do so much more, doesnt it confuse your muscle. Doesn't it need originality and dont you need different movements for most muscle groups that target them specifically?
User avatar #137 to #135 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
I completely understand why it's confusing, and it's something I really struggled with until recently.

A muscle doesn't need to be confused, it needs consistent and ever increasing stress. "Muscle confusion" only prevents you from making any major progress, because adapting to a stress is what makes you get stronger and bigger, so you keep the workout the same while increasing the weight, which is a way of increasing the stress on your body. I increase the weights on all my lifts by 5 pounds every week, I've been doing this for about 2 months now since I switch programs, and I went from benching 150 for 5 sets of 5 reps, to 185 of the same sets and reps. I went from benching 205 to 230.

The absolute best way to build muscle is to focus on the movements that target huge groups of muscles, like Bench, Squat, Deadlift, overhead press, power clean, cleans, snatches, etc.

User avatar #144 to #143 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
I only use a spotter whenever I am maxing out on a lifts. So I don't have a spotter while benching 185, but I do when I'm doing 215 for 2 reps.

If you are confident that you can get the weight without issues then you don't really need one. You probably aren't lifting enough right now to merit concern to be honest.
