"It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable." -Socrates "Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity." -John F. Kennedy This is the general weightlifting/bodybuilding thread. Feel free to ask questions for exercises and such. General tips: Proper amount of reps in terms of ascertaining goals: strength ~1-5 mass ~6-12 endurance ~12+ In order see the optimum progress get a good amount of sleep and eat a lot of the right foods (if you have questions post your current diet and ask for advice accordingly). Proper form is very important to lifting as well. Not only are you denying yourself the best possible work out by ignoring form but you are also putting yourself at risk for injury. If you have questions about form post videos of yourself for critique or you can try to ask, just be sure to explain yourself clearly or it won't do any good. Monthly new thread, I mostly copied/pasted from Binksy's OP because yeah things are fine as is. Here are the old threads: V. 1 [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/100...uilding-Thread[/url] V. 2 [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/106...n-here-u-mirin[/url] V. 3 [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1092941[/url] Buy Supps from here [url]http://www.truenutrition.com/[/url] "why not just get it from true nutrition for cheaper........... and pick your own flavour out of like 50 . or just eat normal meat instead of being an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!" -Casus [B] Read this thread FIRST if you are a beginner:[/B] Shit you need to know because you are gay as fuark [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1094249[/url] Oh, here's Casus [IMG]http://www.examiner.com/images/blog/wysiwyg/image/Terry_Crews_2.jpg[/IMG]

I prefer SS. It doesn't make a real difference anyways, choose what you like most. Also, [url]http://www.elitefts.com/documents/size-strength1.htm[/url] [url]http://www.elitefts.com/documents/size-strength2.htm[/url] Brilliant reads.

"Developing and increasing strength—for the majority of males past puberty—requires an increase in muscle mass (i.e. the development of “bigger” muscles). A small group of men are capable of developing strength with small increases in their muscle mass because their bodies are more “efficient” at lifting heavy weights. This group may not develop as much mass through their weight training. However, both groups need to increase their muscle mass to increase their maximal strength." BTW how much can I expect to lose fluid weight if I stop using creatine? I've been using around 5 grams a day. And another question. I hurt my shoulder during the weekend and it starts to hurt while doing shoulder press or bench. That's why I've done squats (hit 132,5kg yey) and deads and some random machines for the past two days. I feel like working out, but I can't do pushing exercises and if I work legs today, that'd be three days in a row. What should I do? I have no time to go to gym tomorrow so it'll be a rest day for sure. My legs are merely very slightly sore. Should I squat?
I changed the title ~_~
Should I switch to one of those 5 x 5 workouts? I've been lifting for like 6 months now. I'm currently doing this routine, and I've been doing it for 2 months now- Monday: Chest/biceps 4 sets Incline Dumbbell Press, 8-10 reps 3 sets Bench Press, 8-10 reps 3 sets Incline Flies, 8-10 reps 3 sets Chest Dips until failure 3 sets Barbell Curls, 8-10 reps 3 sets Preacher Curls, 8-10 reps, then drop the weight to half, and push out another 8 Tuesday: Legs 4 sets Squats 8-10 reps 3 sets Lunges 8-10 reps 3 sets Leg Press 8-10 reps 3 sets Leg Extensions till failure 3 sets Leg Curls 8-10 reps Wednesday: Shoulders/triceps 4 sets Shoulder Press, alternate with Barbell & Dumbell every week 8-10 reps 3 sets Upright Rows supersetted with Lateral Raises 8-10 reps 3 sets Front raises 8-10 reps 3 sets Lying Rear Delt Raises 8-10 reps 3 sets Close-Grip Bench Press 8-10 reps 4 sets Pulldowns 8-10 reps 3 sets Skullcrushers 8-10 reps Thursday: Back 3 sets Lat Pulldowns 8-10 reps 4 sets Deadlifts 8-10 reps 3 sets Bent Over Rows 8-10 reps 3 sets Dumbell Rows 8-10 reps 3 sets Hyperextensions 8-10 reps [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] As for fullbody, I do wrestling one a week.
