>Half of it it's legs
>I wish it was an exaggeration, it's literally so much legs
I tried to ask him before why's that but he dismisses it

I've been thinking about starting a different routine by my own but I'm scared since I really don't know how a lot of things work

        >deadlift except he makes me do it with my legs instead of my back
        Do you mean like in the picture? If yes, your instructor is an absolute idiot and you should better try to learn everything yourself instead of listening to him

      • 2 months ago

        Yeah, I’m not sure how this program fits with your goals, or even what its goal is. I can see a good trainer saying “you will be mad at me later if I let you only train arms, so we’re also going to train legs, or you can find another trainer.” But this program seems kinda aimless tbh.

        He wants to give you juicy thighs and ass.
        Thank him and let him fuck.

      I already have birthing hips and fat thigs
      I want to workout everything else not make my lower area even bigger

      • 2 months ago

        >birthing hips and fat thigs
        You know, you *could* just be making that up to sell your narrative, based on the information we have at hand. This is a trained professional we're talking about, and your story already has holes in it anon.
        Therefore, for the sake of science and the pursuit of truth, you must post a pic of your thighs with a timestamp.
        And decent lighting.

    Get a different instructor because his workouts are absolut ass.

    The plank is one of the most worthless/time wasting exercises imo and deadlifts are not deadlifts if you're not using your back.

    Pushups are also ass though this is person experience, i've broken both my wrists before and push ups are one of the worst exercises for me. In general they are ass though since pumping out 20 reps every set is worthless.

    Also sprinting trains legs but for leg stremgth workouts absolute dogshit.
    Your trainer sounds like a crossfitter, how many reps are you meant to do per set and with what rest time in between?

    I just generally think running and strength training should be done on different days. But do them both, nit like your trainer instructed you to do though, do actual cardio with slow running AND good strength training.

    • 2 months ago

      >Your trainer sounds like a crossfitter, how many reps are you meant to do per set and with what rest time in between?
      I normally do 10 reps and 4 series (I'm not sure if that's the words)
      I get around 1 minute rest between series
      My gym teaches crossfit so you may not be too far off

      • 2 months ago

        So you do 10 reps for 4 sets (sets is the word you're looking for). That range is good for hypertrophy but if you're just constantly doing 10 reps as a goal your trainer is a complete retard.
        Your last rep should take a lot of energy out of you, not complete muscle failure though.

        Go to a different gym if it's crossfit oriented. Yes you can definitely gain strength by it but i find it to be garbage. Usually these workouts make you wanna puke because they both fuck with your muscles and with your cardiovascular system.

        I did some crossfit 2-3 years ago, now i go to the gym and do Cardio on other days. Crossfit feels way worse (way more exhausting) but you improve less (in my perception). Its too short for true Cardio training but to exhausting to actually put energy into every rep.

        Also you learn shitty technique in crossfit since most workouts tell you to do as many reps as possible in a set amount of time

    he's a SS powershitter but u deserve it since only retards need trainers

  7. 2 months ago

    ALL PTs are retards. Think about the people who become PTs, literally the lowest of the low. And OP you're retard because:
    > you're a dyel
    > you hired a PT
    > you want to concentrate on arms like a fuckin dyel gay
    > you don't understand the value of systemic stress
    > you don't want to experience what might and strength your muscles, bones, and sinew are capable of
    moron, i squatted over 530 lbs today for reps
    i am a fucking SPECIMEN
    and you will never have that feel unless you drop this gay moron arms bullshit and understand that the strongest muscles in your body are for fucking HIP EXTENSION aka MAX FUCKING POWER
    god i hate your low iq dyel mindset so much
    fuck you gay moron europoor brain
    fuck you

    Alright, so the routine is shit and I need to dip it
    Where do I find a new one?
    Just purchase a random one? does anyone recommend a specific one
    Is it a better idea to just make one myself

    I know I'm acting like annoying gay but this is the fitness board

    • 2 months ago

      Don’t get me wrong, you’re gonna respond to it and get stronger because you’re a noob, and it’s better than you’re gonna do on your own.

      If you’re really untrained it can be good to work with a trainer who can show you how to do stuff without getting hurt, help you come up with good goals for yourself. Maybe find a new trainer and stick with this while you’re researching and reaping noob gains?

    • 2 months ago

      If you’re a beginner get a trainer who does powerlifting, they can teach you the forms for the lifts used in SS/SL which is the only program you need as a complete beginner

  9. 2 months ago

    You really are better off doing this all on your own. Find any newbie routine, best to do any strength focused routine where your primary goal is form, which in turn increases strength which will also increase mass. Film yourself, compare to form instructions online, post your videos on fitness forums for form checks. Remember everyone’s body is different though.

    When I first started the gym offered a free training session and I took it because I wanted critique on my squat form. The trainer was a 5’1” tren fiend. He basically told me I absolutely must squat with my feet 2” apart or less and then bullied me for not being able to squat 2pl8 on my first day at 6’2” 160lbs. Dude thought weight was all that mattered and decided if he ignored height it wouldn’t be a factor in his life anymore. He wanted me to pay for his “teachings” I laughed and said no. Ended up teaching myself doing what I said above, ended up in a powerlifting gym with good coaches and hit a 3pl8 squat in 1.5 years with several knee injuries from squatting how the midget told me for a few weeks.

    The only personal trainer you need is yourself and infinite amount of knowledge/bullshit on the internet.
    Don't fucking pay for shit. Try different routines, find what you connect with most and build a routine around that.

  11. 2 months ago

    Do stronglifts 5x5 but add chinups/curls and maybe tricep extensions on chest day and one shoulder exercise on ohp day
    That’s all you need for 3-6 months depending on your progress
    Start with the beginners spreadsheet which makes you start just with the bar on most exercises. Eat a lot, make sure to eat your peotein.
    I gained 7kg of mostly muscle in 3 months with this routine. Went from squatting the bar to 2 plate (100kg) and still adding weight every workout easily.
