How does one achieve VISUAL effect of olympic weightlifter's physique.
I don't mean their strength levels, but more aesthetic side of their bodies.
They didn't achieve their physique just by doing clean & jerk and snatch all the time.
How much should one weight at 6 ft to have similar mass?
Sup /fit/ need some help.
I'm a dyel who benchs 135 lbs, lately I started notice my shoulders make a crack noise everytime I bench all the way down to my chest.
I read on the Internet that some people believe benching all the way down can fuck your shoulder so you should bench at 90 degrees only, so I started benching like this and realize my shoulders dont crack.
It's ok if I bench like this? or im going to get a visit from the gains goblin?
Does marijuana kill gains?
I've been an insomniac for 13 years. I moved to California a few months ago and finally got my medical card. I discovered a few strains that have helped me get the best night's sleep i can ever remember.
Does it effect my gains? I imagine its not as harmful as not sleeping 3 or 4 nights a week.
Didn't see a motivation thread in the catalog, so lets get one going.
What's a simple, healthy way to eat and prepare eggs?
Welcome to /PLG/ Powerlifting General. Primarily for the purpose of becoming a better athlete on the platform, but all forms of strength training accepted!
>no bully edition
Post progress, PR's, meet videos, schmexy lifts, or anything strength training related!
I can get behind this.
Do you lads ever feel weird filming your sets? I know I used to have trepidation about pissing someone off by doing it, but it seems most people are really cool with me doing it.
Here's the start of mine (I'm on a budget):
>45 lbs. 7' Olympic barbell 600 lbs. rating
>330 lbs. of pl8's
>DB's: 2x15, 2x30, 2x40
Buying a pl8 tree today and a floor today. I have a nice sound system. However, I'm stucking using a corner of the living room. I use my guest bedroom and have no garage or basement.. Would love more DB's and pl8's, but for the most part running out of reasons to go to the gym.
Still go to the gym for dumbbells I don't have and machines such as the leg curls and extensions.
May as well contribute.
Thinking of converting to home gym master race for long-term economy and comfort.
Been browsing, came up with this. Looks about right to me, what do you guys think?
Small(ish) budget, will have to add to it later I think. Might have to remove the pl8 tree. It's kind of a luxury desu senpai.
That's about what I was going for, but with the squat rack I don't have to worry about the height of the rack. So I think I was able to maintain quality and do a bit cheaper.
I still need the pl8 tree and floor though. Nothing more annoying than having to carefully pickup pl8's from the floor and set them down between sets.
Oh and one more thing. Unfortunately I can't move the adjustable bench. That makes it difficult to do a couple things like military press or behind the neck press. But I can still do flyes, rear delt lateral raises, etc. without worrying about space.
how does /fit/ deal with being sick?
do you change your diet or training
doyou use medcation or home remedies?
Holy fucking shit, fuck you, /fit/
This is a warning not to fall for the SS troll. I did this shit for 6 months. I made large jumps in the amount of weight i moved, but very minimal size gains, but also had to deal with fucking injuries and deloads and all the nonsense? How is this more geared towards beginners?
Switch to an Upper/Lower 4 day split. Been doing this now for about 2 months. I've made more size gains in these 2 months than in 6 of SS, and I'm also getting stronger.
>use a weight till you can do 3 or 4 sets of...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
How many times do people have to tell you strength training is not for gains. It's a beginner routine so that you get used to lifts, cns gains and some strength gains.
Ironically if you would not have done SS you might have not done so well in your current program
Lads how do I develop the outer part of my calves or have I just been dealt naff genetics?
>NYR is just over a month away
Hands down. Why do these guys not get mentioned more? The whole squad of Mark bell, silent mike, and the supertraining guys have IMMENSE knowledge and they're strong af. Not to mention they have absolute legends on the channel pretty much every week.
Mark "Smelly" Bell has arguably one of the best channels on youTube. Between the guests, the videos and the actual content it's unparalleled. Like when he had ed coan on for a while. I don't like silent mike so much, or his weird new bromance with Omar isuf.
>you can't work out when you have eaten
What are the other myths normies mindlessly say
Is alcohol a good means to manage anxiety? What about insomnia? Any recommendations on what to drink? Wine? Beer?
/fit/, this week I have an audition to be a group exercise instructor at my university's gym. I'll be instructing a 55 minute bootcamp class, so it's a circuit based class with a mix of cardio and strength with minimal equipment.
Design my audition class for me, /fit/.
Forget everything you know about fitness, and then put together 25 minutes of extremely low-intensity calisthenics, and then a complex with a 2-3kg dumbbell that your grandmother could do. Finish with some stretching.
