[B] "It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable." -Socrates[/B] This is the general weightlifting/bodybuilding thread. Feel free to ask questions for exercises and such. [b]General tips:[/b] 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. The old thread got locked and VQ wasn't on so I took the liberty of setting this thread off. It's not a big deal so don't make it one.

Is there anything I should do to adjust my diet? I'm looking to gain some more weight while building more muscle. I'm 5'10 1/2 and 130 pounds. Breakfast is usually 2 slices of whole grain toast and 3 scrambled eggs Lunch is whatever is served at school which is usually some petty meat and some vegetables like corn or potatoes but will soon change to what I want because of school ending in just a few days Snack when I get home is something like peanut butter on some crackers and 2 hard boiled eggs Dinner is always a meat and vegetables with most likely some potatoes Sometimes I snack a little before bed maybe some more peanut butter smeared on crackers
Just eat when hungry and get a lot of protein. You should develop a huge appetite from weight lifting so just don't worry about it.

Except you want to probably eat even when you're not hungry. Just eat loads of protein and nutrient rich foods don't waste stomach space on empty calories and shit
Is it a good idea to alternate between Endurance/Strength lifting? As that's what I've been doing, alternating every week or so
I can't see any hurt in it. Just might not bulk up as much
[QUOTE=Angry Pineapple;30129190]Is it a good idea to alternate between Endurance/Strength lifting? As that's what I've been doing, alternating every week or so[/QUOTE] Why don't you just work on the in between? Like do between ~5-8 reps... That's what a lot of people do. It's the happy medium between the two and you bulk up a good deal from it too
Binsky, what are your stats?
[QUOTE=Stud Muffin;30129918]Binsky, what are your stats?[/QUOTE] His stats are as follows: Single Mocha chocolate skin 7 inches gay as fuark

Goddamn it, I never knew getting enough protein was such a challenge.
Let me help you with that, bb ;)

Yessir. The last two reps should be hard to complete. That's just a general thing to make sure you're pushing yourself
[QUOTE=Binsky;30130655]Yessir. The last two reps should be hard to complete. That's just a general thing to make sure you're pushing yourself[/QUOTE] Alright. Thanks

Retoasting Help guys :( at the local gym I can only do the following because they are gay fags that wont let me lift freeweights because I'm 12. And this is the only gym I can go to. I am currently being a machine fag. Guided benchpress (Can incline and decline) Guided squat Guided military press Maybe guided bent over rows (Same problem as deadlift) Chin ups Dips I'm not sure if I can dead lift on the guided machines (Which is a barbell that can only be moved up and down) Weighed decline crunches BTW guided = Smith machine Uhmm as for diet this is gonna be a tough one. My mom insists everything she buys is healthy which is high fat meat, simple carbs and canned/packaged food (Supermarket fast food) I can't buy shit, I never get money. WHAT DO? I also can't use whey or anything. I'd Imagine I can eat whatever I want, being a 12 year old extreme ectomorph...

[QUOTE=Perfumly;30131186]~binsky where is the thread content this is terrible kill urself~[/QUOTE] Deal w/ it I don't think we need a huge wealth of info anyway in the OP. I linked to the old ones if anyone wants to read up on stuff, however, a majority of people never read the OP and end up just asking SOOOOOOOOOOOO [editline]29th May 2011[/editline] Also, how do you guys get people to take naked pictures of you??? No one ever does that for me :(
I setup a tripod ~duh~
You're just full of ideas

Answer my question you figs :(
[QUOTE=Carbo;30131799]Answer my question you figs :([/QUOTE] the biggest freshman i know are football players. ( join football team and eat alot )
[QUOTE=Carbo;30131799]Answer my question you figs :([/QUOTE] What question you little gaybutt? About your diet? LMAO. The only principle you need to be following with your diet is: Protein with every meal and lots of food. Your mum buys high-fat cuts of meat... So? Let me let you in on a little sekrit that few people know: dietary fat doesn't make you fat. You need good amount of various types of fat in your diet for a variety of important health and hormonal functions, one of those functions being the ever important Testosterone production. I'm not saying go start eating gallons full of fat, but don't be afraid of incidental fat intake from eating meat or eggs. etc. So don't be scared of the fat red meat, personally I alternate between steak and chicken for lunch every day. You also need to consume a fair bit of carbs if you want to build muscle anytime this century. White rice is quite possibly the best source of carbs out there, so go buy a bag of the good stuff and do yourself a favor by cooking a large batch up on monday or some shit so you can eat it with meals for the rest of the week. Oatmeal is another staple if you handle it well (some people don't, some get bloat from it etc). Avoid large concentrated doses of sugar (i.e soft drink etc) except post-workout, chocolate milk is one of the best PWO drinks ever. Add a scoop of whey for extra protein if you feel like it. Don't be afraid of the [B]occasional[/B] fast food like pizza or kebabs whatever. Mcdonalds is kind of gay because they combine trans-fats (trans fats are the evil of the nutrient world, they are the only kind of fat that is actually EVIL. These guys are worse than bowser, they tied peach up and DP'd her anus while mario watched and cried like a bitch) with sugars to wash it down with.
Listen to this man.
Alright, thanks man. Anybody know a good workout plan according to my gym?
[QUOTE=Carbo;30132163]Alright, thanks man. Anybody know a good workout plan according to my gym?[/QUOTE] Machines aren't necessarily bad outright, as Seith has pointed out before, they can actually be potentially superior in terms of hypertrophy. PM casus for a gay as fuark plan. Personally if I were you I'd look at trying to find a better gym as soon as you can, or start working on a home gym.
For reference, my mom usually cooks one of the following for dinner Ye ole whole chicken and potatoes Spagetti Stirfry Rice BBQ steak or chicken Lunch is Spagetti (Or other pasta) Deli meat sammich Shitload of fruit or veggies Processed stuff (Canned, etc.) Breakfast is A few fruits Candy cereal Normal cereal Usually water milk or sugar juice with everything I guess it's not that bad, but snacks get me, I'm always hungry and the only stuff available between meals is supermarket fast-food shite. I almost always eat the above meals but it can differ to be worse eg. Kraft dinner for everything. [editline]29th May 2011[/editline] And for another reference as a whole (That I can use) my gym got Sitting benchpress Shoulder press 45 degree angle leg press Pec flys Lat pulldown Cable crossovers Cable tricep pulldown Leg extensions Back of leg extensions Assisted dip and pullip Chin up gym 90 degree angle situo bench (Crunches with 15 pounds yo) And ye ole smith machine Maybe missing some
