Solid start bro. There are probably a few things you could do to fill out your arms a little better but really the most important factor is time. Find an exercise that focuses on the bottom of your bicep, and start doing JM presses. Your triceps and bench will thank you for that one with insane gains.
User avatar #813 - marinepenguin (05/26/2015) [-]
I actually have 17.5 inch arms. I'm 6'3 with a 6'6 wingspan, so it doesn't look like it in photos.
#817 - mikeoxlong (05/26/2015) [-]
I didn't say they were bad, just could be better. Your delts on that side look fucking huge so that could have something to do with it. I'm serious about those JM's though. They hit your tricep in a way that you really can't with any other exercise.
User avatar #819 - marinepenguin (05/26/2015) [-]
I honestly don't know what JM presses are. I'll have to look those up. I'm always wanting to add in New movements. And my shoulders have actually been lagging. I didn't seriously hit them until December.
#829 - mikeoxlong (05/26/2015) [-]
If you try them and end up liking them, people might say "Hey you're doing your close grips wrong your form is terrible" but just ignore it and laugh at all of the little people when your arms get bigger and stronger than everyone else in the gym.

Start lifting, and start counting macros. If you can make sure you're consuming 40% carbs, 40% protein, and 20% fat every single day, you'll be jacked before you know it (if you eat enough to have a surplus of calories, that is. You physically can't build muscle unless your metabolism has more than it needs to keep you alive and repair any damage done by exercise)

User avatar #488 - marinepenguin (05/25/2015) [-]
I'll admit I was already fairly athletic and worked out and played sports my whole life, but that doesn't mean I don't count. Gaining 60 pounds of good weight in 18 months is a hard thing to do. Plus I was extremely scrawny and technically underweight for 6'3.

So yes, I was already in shape, but it still took a ton of work and dedication to get where I am.

It's definitely harder to lose mass than to gain, but going from skinny to buff like that is pretty hard too

Went from 145 to 205.

That was taken in December when I had slowed down on ab work.

I took this photo a few weeks ago, I've gone down on BF a little, and increased ab work so it's better.

Damn son nice.
If you don't mind me asking, what's your routine?
User avatar #360 - marinepenguin (05/25/2015) [-]
I ran variations of push/pull/legs most of the time.
User avatar #367 - unoriginalaccount (05/25/2015) [-]
Did you start off with push/pull/legs or did you do something before that?
Right now I'm just doing strength training 3 times a week and after a year or so thinking of moving to push(a)/pull(b)/legs(c) 6 times a week as abcabcx
User avatar #379 - marinepenguin (05/25/2015) [-]
I didn't start out with exactly p/p/l but it was very similar. I'd recommend more of an ABCXABCX. Doing 6 days in a row will take a toll on your body after a few months.
User avatar #524 - joberja (05/25/2015) [-]
I do a two on, one off, 3 on, one off routine. Gotta plan with my work schedule in mind. Good or bad?
User avatar #527 - marinepenguin (05/25/2015) [-]
That's completely fine. Really frequency doesn't matter as much as long as you work out at LEAST twice a week and get good rest and eat enough. 3-5 days a week is the best range for general athleticism and fitness for the average person.
User avatar #528 - joberja (05/25/2015) [-]
I'm actually trying to get bigger though. I have been succeeded, slowly, but I'm seeing more gains in strength than in size. I started the routine about 6 months ago, and while I have gained about 15 pounds... I want more.
User avatar #533 - marinepenguin (05/25/2015) [-]
Your body can only create .25 pounds of lean muscle every week at maximum. Give or take 1/10 of a pound depending on personal genetics, diet, and development. Beginners can build a little more as well. 15 lbs in 6 months means that you've probably seen a lot of lean muscle gains and haven't gained much fat.

But if you really want to build lots of mass the main two things you need are food and volume. 3-4 sets of 6-10 on your big compounds, 4-5 sets of 10-15 on your isolation and assistance movements. 6-8 movements per day. That's what I followed during my p/p/l split and put on tons of strength and mass.
User avatar #541 - joberja (05/25/2015) [-]
I've discovered its next to impossible for me to gain fat, I'm consistently eating between 3,000 and 4,000 calories a day, and the only reason I'm not eating more is because otherwise I'd be completely broke. Insane metabolism is a bitch. I'll try upping my repetitions, though. I've usually been doing a max of 4 sets of 8, and on heavy days a max of 6 sets of 3.
User avatar #547 - marinepenguin (05/25/2015) [-]
I was similar, eating 4000 calories a day for 8 months put on 40 pounds. Then I lowered it after that so I could lean gain.

And 6 sets of 3 is good for building strength and strength endurance, but not the best at building muscle.
User avatar #552 - joberja (05/25/2015) [-]
That would explain the strength gains then.
User avatar #434 - unoriginalaccount (05/25/2015) [-]

User avatar #378 - Gandalfthewhite (05/25/2015) [-]
He knew how to take power, he just might not have been as good at keeping it
#369 - JuliusC (05/25/2015) [-]
So you're telling me a man born to a lesser known family of Rome who died Dictator for Life after successfully conquering large swaths of Europe previously thought untouchable by Romans didn't know how to take power? As opposed to the rest of them who just kind of inherited it? Are you stupid or just trolling
#437 - imperiumromanum (05/25/2015) [-]
I'm neither, I know what I'm talking about. Sure he conquered large swaths of territory from the Gauls, he was a great general, don't get me wrong. The only problem was that he was a soldier first and a politician second, which was the opposite of Augustus. He declared himself dictator for life, but had too many enemies to be able to keep his life for long, as the Senate soon had him killed. Augustus knew exactly how to take complete control of Rome, I'd argue from the moment Caesar died based on how fast and smartly he moved.

Caesar was assasinated on the steps of the Senate by some of what he thought were his greatest friends, Augustus lived for around 70+ years, and ruled for around 40 years, Caesar was only Dictator for Life for around 5 years, not counting his Consulship. Caesar's problem was not that he was too ambitious, but that he wanted his ambitions to be achieved too quickly, which is fine if you're a leading an army, sometimes, but not working through politics. Augustus worked slowly and methodically to gain his Emperorship, starting with the war against Antony by having all the people and soldiers on his side swear an oath of loyalty to him and him alone, which helped to ensure that people would not betray him. Then, through the war, he slowly eliminated all those who could be seen as a threat to him, either by assassination or imprisonment, then execution, and calling them traitors. After the war was over, and all of his enemies were dead, he had to deal with the Senate. He did so by making himself Consul for life, along with Agrippa, his trusted general.

He started with his First Settlement (27 BC) in which he gave up his senate responses, but gave himself the name Augustus, and started the creation of the Principe ruling system, he also created new Imperial provinces, the most important one being Egypt, which for all the Empire would never be controlled by a Senator, and he also had the loyalty of much of the army for his victories. In the Second Settlement (23 BC) he gave up his consulship and all of his other official magistrate titles and allowed the Senators to run for these positions again, and even made several new ones to appease the Senate because, he knew, that the Senators figured, what's the point of being in power but having no positions to run for. He did retain his princeps titles though, meaning he was still in charge, but the Senate thought that it was actually in charge. Basically, the senate had a say in how things would be run, but Augustus had final say in everything, whether the Senators knew it or not. Later on, in 12 and 2 BC respectively, he also named himself Pontifex Maximus and Pater Patriae (Father of his country). With him being the Princeps, first among equals, he, officially, ruled within the republican constitution and, by the time of his death, there was no threat against the Princeps, at least in the sense that they would be assassinated for having too much power and return the country into a republic.

He also won over the military by sending them to war to expand the borders further than they already were, which earned him more loyalty from the army, as the army always loved a successful general, rather than an unsuccessful one.

I see where you're coming from, I just want you to understand why I believe Augustus was a better ruler than Julius, I'm not uneducated in this subject, though I'm also not an expert. Hope that clears up my opinion!
User avatar #512 - JuliusC (05/25/2015) [-]
I agree with the part about KEEPING power, but the original comment you made stated that he wasn't good at TAKING power, which is absolutely false. Julius was also an excellent politician, he played the power game with the wealthiest and most influential figures of rome until his ends were met. The problem is that his two most powerful allies were lost. Crassus died in battle while ceasars daughter, wife of Pompey died in childbirth, greatly weakening the alliance.
Also the thing about Augustus is that he never really went throug all the work of seizing power like Julius did, as he was already named heir by right all that was left of him was to defeat brutus, pompey and the rest of the conspirators, and with Julius leaving half of his will to the Roman people and augustus sharing the name he really didnt have to do too much to get the support of the people.
User avatar #604 - imperiumromanum (05/25/2015) [-]
Fair point, but you have to remember that Rome was, essentially, split between Antony and Augustus, rather than giving Augustus full power, and he wasn't the Princeps, it was more of a Triumverate with Augustus, Antony, and one other whose name I can't remember at this point. Augustus did seize power by taking the third guys territory when he died, declaring war against Antony, and labelling him a traitor to Rome, then working his way up into the position of Princeps. But again, you have a fair point, my comment did say that, and I am wrong, wasn't really thinking about what I was typing then.

Sets and reps scheme for these?

Thus doesn't seem terrible, but there are a few things I'd add, and a few things I'd throw out or change. I'll need reps and sets to know for sure though.

I switched your weekly schedule to ABXCAXBCX, etc. Two days on, one day off, more frequency and still decent amounts of rest between working a muscle group.

One note, I use the double progression method, which means that when I put 3-5 reps, you aim for 5 reps, but if you can only get 3, keep the weight the same for the next week and aim for improving your reps until you get 5. Once you get the max reps you add 5 pounds the next week.

A day:
Pause Bench 3x3-5
Cable Crossovers/DB Flys 3x10-12 choose one to do first, then do the other the next week
Dips 4x10-12
Incline bench/OHP 3X6-8
Lateral raises 3x10-12
DB tricep extensions/ BB Skullcrushers 3x10-12

B day:
Barbell row 4x8-10
Pull ups 3x8-10
Lawnmower pulls 4x8-10
DB rows 3x10-12
Back flys 4x10-12
BB curls/Hammer curls 3x8-10

C day:
Squats 3x3-5
Leg curl 4x8-10
Leg Ext 3x15-20
Leg press 3x6-8/ Leg press 3x10-12
Calf raises 4x10
Bodyweight single leg calf raises 4x15-20

Let me know what you think.
User avatar #353 to #351 - loomiss ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
It's looks good. I'll make sure I can do all of these movements correctly.
I currently get around 2800 cals a day, probably should be upping it eh?
I also take 5g creatine everyday and drink plenty of water,following this schedule for the summer where do you think I could expect my lifts to be at by the end of August?
User avatar #357 to #353 - marinepenguin ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
Aim for 3500, if you're gaining to much fat, dial down to 3300.

and it really depends on you. In perfect conditions with decent genetics, I'd say you could add 40-60 pounds on all your lifts since you are still fairly beginner.

For an example, I've been training a friend of mine for about 3 months now. I took his bench from 165 to 215 in one month, just by teaching him proper breathing, form, etc. Hes at 225 now.
User avatar #352 to #351 - marinepenguin ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
And as for increasing in weight on secondary movements, go by feel, if a weight is beginning to get easy, go up. But try not to increase weight on those more then 5-10 pounds a month or else you'll burn out on them very quickly.
User avatar #354 to #352 - loomiss ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
What do ya mean by seconday movements?
And thanks a ton for the help man!
User avatar #355 to #354 - marinepenguin ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
Movements that aren't big compounds. Rows, bench, squat, etc. Leg press I'm not quite sure, my experience with that is not as good since I don't have it. But I know that since you can do a ton of weight I leg pressed 700 for of couples sets of 12 for ***** and giggles as my base gym , moving up in weight won't be hard.

But basically, focus on increasing the big barbell movements. The secondary movements are the ones that work one muscle or supplement a main lift. Incline bench, curls, tricep extensions, leg curls, etc.
User avatar #356 to #355 - loomiss ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
okay sounds good, thanks man.
What are your current stats
height weight big 4 lifts?
#358 to #356 - marinepenguin ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
Right now I'm 6'3 and right around 200 pounds. Probably 10-12% body fat.

I couldn't tell you my 1 RM since I don't ever do singles. But here's what I can give you.

Bench: ~255-265
Squat: 315 for 8
Deadlift: 365 really hitting that now so it's changing every week/spoiler]
OHP: 185 [spoiler] I rear OHP these days instead

Power Clean: 255

What should i go grocery shopping for for high calorie foods ( i want a decently cleanish bulk) I eat chipotle and taco bell quite often but whatevs,
I get the XXL stuft chicken burrito at tbell, a nice 810 calories with like 35 g of protein
What should i shop for?
User avatar #360 to #359 - marinepenguin ONLINE (05/28/2015) [-]
Chicken, rice, eggs, more eggs, potatos, any sort of meat, cottage cheese, milk, peanut butter, cheese, fruits and veggies. Really most things that are unprocessed are completely fine. Find a few quick to make snacks that are high in calories and protein chicken and cheese tortillas and pbjs are my favorites .

But a poptart before bed every couple days won't kill ya.

I catch your drift though. If you feel like discussing it, I've spent mannny many hours talking with different people about these sorts of things/decisions, so I really don't mind talking about it at all. For whatever reason people seem to like talking to me about that stuff. Of course if you don't feel like talking about it, you don't have to.
User avatar #316 to #315 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/23/2015) [-]
It's just a ton of different factors really.

I'm leaving for basic training this summer, and I have no plans on marrying her. And once I get back I'll be moving closer to my future college and getting a job there, away from my hometown where she also lives, and I don't want to move in with her.

And on top of that, a girl I've known, liked, and cared for since I was a freshman in high school has recently become single and has shown a lot of interest in me.

And included in all that, hanging out with my gf, and doing really any activity with her feels like a huge chore and I never look forward to it. She's my first serious relationship, and she's convinced we're going to get married. In her eyes everything is perfect and nothing is wrong, so me breaking it off would utterly destroy her.

I already know what I want, and what I should do, but actually doing it is hard. Especially after yesterday was our two year anniversary.

1. Love is more choice, than emotion. Ask any married couple - there will be times when you don't 'feel' like loving your SO, but you do anyway, because you're committed to them.

So look at the facts of your overall relationship. Does she give you something valuable, and you're just overlooking it at the moment?

2. If she doesn't give you anything, and you really don't have any intention to marry her whatsoever, you absolutely need to cut the relationship off as soon as possible for her sake. If you don't plan on going anywhere, ultimately it's going to end up hurting her down the road faaaar more than if you just break up with her now.

Of course it'll be difficult, but there are good ways to do it. Take your time, and be careful with your wording. If she understands where you're coming from, then that's good, and perhaps you guys can still be decent friends. If she loses it, it's a good thing you got out anyway.

Ultimately this is in your hands, but the worst thing you could do is not do anything about the situation at all. The longer it goes on, the worse it'll be when it ends.

I love her in the idea that I really care for her and want the best for her, but I don't love her in the way that I'd spend my life with her.

She doesn't really give me anything, companionship sure, but I've gotten her a job, a car, got her to go to college, without me she'd be way worse off. So for that she really appreciates me. but I don't get anything from her that I couldn't get from any other girl while having more freedom for myself.

This other girl that just entered the picture only makes things worse. My parents and all our friends have constantly told me that they think both of us will end up together in the end, and when we're both at work we talk almost nonstop. And now that she left her extremely constricting boyfriend she's started flirting as well. Now I would never stoop so low as to make something of this while with my girlfriend, but the temptation is there and I don't think that's much better.

Like I said, I know what needs to be done, I just find it hard to actually do it, it's like a goddamn massive bandaid I don't want to pull off.
User avatar #321 to #319 - studbeefpile ONLINE (03/23/2015) [-]
You just gotta be strong and do it dude.

My advice would be to take a whole evening and just set aside time to talk about it. You don't wanna leave anything to question. The sooner the better, you know this.

Besides, if you don't act on this other chick fast, she might get taken by some other dude that's quicker to the draw.
User avatar #322 to #321 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/24/2015) [-]
Yeah that's something I really fear. I have liked her for a long time, lot of regrets with that girl. This could be my last chance with her.

User avatar #325 to #324 - studbeefpile ONLINE (03/24/2015) [-]
The opposite of expression is depression. If you don't express, you get depressed. Venting is necessary.

I often have to vent as well, and you know, there's someone that's always been there for me. Through thick and thin, hot and cold. Depressed. Happy. Sad. Excited. No matter what, they've always been there for me......

That person is Deadlift Day.
User avatar #326 to #325 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/24/2015) [-]
For sure, lifting always helps when it comes to really everything. Angry? Squats. Sad? Chest. Teenage angst? Back day. The iron always listens to your problems.
User avatar #327 to #326 - studbeefpile ONLINE (03/24/2015) [-]
Hahah, teenage angst.

"Nobody understands me, I'm gonna go into my gym and lift to Greenday!"

Is that your set though? For me Deadlifting will help with pretty much any emotion - although especially anger and sadness. Squats are good when I'm just amped up and wanna crush something, and bench is actually pretty chill for me. I find that I typically don't get super duper hyped for bench and that's fine. Bench is just an easy chill day for me.
User avatar #328 to #327 - marinepenguin ONLINE (03/24/2015) [-]
Nah not really, I just picked random stuff.

I have a ton of volume and high rep work, so while I look forward to stuff like squats and power cleans, my workouts in general are brutal enough to where I'm too wiped to experience any sort of emotion for an hour or two.

But yeah, chest day is probably my least intense day as well.

So how much would you recommend me for calorie intake, so far I've been taking in around 3200. I wanna gain a lot of weight, but I don't wanna fat myself up. 5'11, 136 currently and I workout 6 times a week between 1:30-2hrs. I of course understand that if I actually want abs I would need to cut so I won't be seeing them for a while.
User avatar #295 to #294 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/28/2015) [-]
Have you been gaining weight recently at 3200 calories?
User avatar #296 to #295 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]
I honestly can't tell because I don't measure in equal intervals (before eating) but I've definitely been eating more then I used to and I can definitely continue. I'm sure I've gained at least 5 pounds.
User avatar #297 to #296 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/28/2015) [-]
In how long of a timeframe? If you are wanting to gain extremely lean muscle, you should expect maybe a pound or 2 a month. You can only build about .25 lbs of muscle a week at max. So if you were to gain a pound of fat for every pound of muscle, you'd be doing good.

But considering that you are 136 pounds. You may want to put on some mass in general. I'd say if you aren't gaining a ton of weight, up it to 3500 a day.
User avatar #298 to #297 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/28/2015) [-]

User avatar #279 to #278 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah, my cousin went through a lot of that when he was in combat.
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 (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 (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 (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 (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.
User avatar #288 to #287 - marinepenguin ONLINE (01/18/2015) [-]
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 #289 to #288 - teoyuppie (01/18/2015) [-]
Wow. That's amazing. I have a lot of respect for anyone who proudly serves for the right cause. Your father is one of many that make this nation great.

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 #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 #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.

Upon further investigation, you were on the science board after I posted my link. So I'll assume you came from there.

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).

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 ONLINE (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.
#221 to #220 - studbeefpile has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #224 to #221 - studbeefpile ONLINE (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.

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.

It's been awhile since I've changed the paper up. What did you revise?

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.

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.

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.
