Working Out (new thread)

Can you perceive what 20" arms look like???

Talking about be dis-proportional..

I do not really want to get any larger, just looking to keep my strength with a slight gain in one area (bench press)

Fogged: I don't take nothing that you said as a pissing match. I asked for advice, to see what others were doing, and that is what you gave, and I appreciate it..

Cain:
I have been using a program the last two months that has really boosted my bench press, but now it has kind of died of (I guess my body has gotten used to it).

it is a chart form of bench workouts, and it instructs you what to use. It uses your one rep max, and gives you a rokout plan to follow for bench press..

For Example..

My one rep max is 350..

week 1 3 sets (1st set) 275-6 reps (2nd set) 295-5 reps (3rd set) 305-4 reps

week 2 3 sets (1st set) 300-3 reps (2nd set) 325-2 reps (3rd set) 360-neg (you should not be able to press this, this is the week for doing your negative, if you do press it then you have a new max, and you move up to the next weight levle on the chart.

It is a very good workout, and I have received great results from it, as I gained 35lbs on my bench press in a couple of months. I can email anyone a copy of the chart if they would like.

Just let me know...

There is your problem, no testosterone. Where is the hair on your chest????


Nah, i'm just kidding...

Personally, I would love to have a 33" waist, but all I can do is work for my goals, ad hope to reach them. I have never been in 33" waist jeans or anything like that, I went from joggin suits as a 10 year old into 38's

In rec football I could not touch the football because I was to big. 180lb 12 year old. My body fat is 19%. Which is about 4% more than I want to be at.

But like I said I am working out for me. I would like to get a little more cut up, but I want to keep my strength also..

Lets see if you smarties can figure this out...

I'm 24, 5'-10", 235 lbs, 33" waist, 18" arms, fairly lean for my weight. I know lots of guys that weigh 30 lbs less but are alot 'fatter'. I don't workout much, used to play alot of sports, mainly football. I have what I would consider to be good muscle mass, plenty solid, thick chest, larger than average legs. The main reason why I don't work out much is because its just frustratiing. Mainly because I'm not strong, which is weird. I can only bench about 240, squat 450 or so. As far as "ultimate" strength, I'm good to go. I can push a LTD with 4 flat tires up a steep hill, hold up a toploader with one hand, etc., but when it comes to the weightroom, I disappoint. Whats the deal?

Chilly,

looks like your buddy that is squatting is doing if my eyes are right, about 805lbs...

2-100's on each side, and then 4-45's on each side, plus the bar which in most cases weighs 45 more..

very impressive.

I remember when I did my last squat max in high school, and My face looked just like that..

and once i re-racked it was more like because I almost fell out...

Working Out (new thread)

When I was i highschool wresitling. I was 5"11 and 170 7% body fat. Had the 6 pack and all. But back then I had to watch what I eat. 3 years after highschool Im at 6' 200 lbs and Im guessing 16% fat. Cant really see the weight gain except for the stomach area. Lost some definition in the arms and legs. I have been woring out weekly also. Only thing changed was my diet. Ohh yeah held the pull up record at my H-S at 38. Not chin ups guys.

So in conclusion: Eating right effects more then you think. Even they way you want to work out and how long.
I like the lots of carbs "breads and pasta"
Lot of protien. and pleanty of fruits &amp; veggies. Along with chocolate./ "I have a high matabolism.

Looking at this thread is making me feel gay...

Fogged, you're right though...eating to powerlift is a tough road, not going to be very pretty at all. I don't want to become fat and have the health issues so I'll compromise and go down to 242. I really have the frame that I should be lifting at 275...but unless I put on more lean muscle I'd just be a chub and further behind the totals being put up by those guys anyway. There are some guys in the middle/heavy weight classes that are lean and lift ridiculous amounts.

Travis Mash at 220 just totalled over 2400
Chuck Vogelpohl is also a 220 that has squatted 1000, both are lean. Here's a picture of Chuck pulling over 800lbs..



And Travis squatting God knows how much


Duuuude.The human spine just aint designed to do that!

I've seen that program before. I was also thinking about giving it a shot. If you find the time, email me a copy of the progression chart. Cain078@yahoo.com

Thanks
