        Yea you can go heavier if you only do one side with dumbells, and it helps your core alot because you have to stabilize more

    Is Stronglifts a meme? I've chosen it because it was in the sticky. I'm four months into it and I never see it discussed here. One dude told me to stick to it if I liked it, and so I did.

      It'll get you some strength quickly. The main criticism of SL and SS is the massive squat volume compared to the upper body. If that concerns you, switch to a different program once your lifts stop progressing, or at least add in accessory work.

        Should it concern me? I thought squats worked a shitton of muscles. At least that's what is says in the guide.
        I'm probably gonna stick with it for at least one year, I'm working out at home and I don't really have anything else besides the barbell and two dumbbells.

          They work a "shitton of muscles" in the way that a lot of shit has to contribute to stabilizing, which is a good thing.
          They don't work a "shitton of muscles" in the manner that your upper body will get any meaningful growth. It's a lower body lift.
          I did it as well a long time ago, it's a good program for what it is (teaching noobs the principle of progressive overload and the big compounds).
          Add on curls, a triceps extension and pullups (think they are in the program? just do them every day anyway) and you have yourself a decent full body routine.

            unrelated but how can you measure "stabilizing" muscle growth? if thats even a thing

            how do you know that your stabilizing muscles are getting stronger?

              Stabilizer muscles are a meme, there is no secondary class of muscles called “stabilizers”. Strength is a skill, so squats will make you better at staying stable under heavy loads, but that doesn’t mean there are these little muscles called stabilizers that you’re training. Squats will train your core (abs and to an extent obliques and lower back) in addition to your legs though

                That must be the reason why my cum gutters look more prominent than ever. I just need to lose the big gut I got from trying to "bulk".

              You know because you are getting stronger in the lift with consistent form.
              If your body detects instability, it will hinder force output.
              Best example is a total noob doing bench or press or OHP. You know, a shaky unstable mess with 95lbs for a few reps or whatever. Their chest, delts and triceps can probably produce enough force to lift more than that if you measured it in isolation, but the nervous system won't let them because everything involved in stabilizing the weight is underdeveloped.

              I thought that we weren't supposed to work out everyday.

              By "every day" I meant every workout day, which is 3 times a week.

                fair enough, I've been strictly lifting dumbbells for a few months doing compound lift equivalents, I will move to actual legit gym equipment soon , I was just curious if that as a starting base might help out once i move to the full bar

                There will be carryover, but not 1:1. It's a slightly different setup/movement pattern.
                Best example is probably standing barbell OHP, seated dumbbell presses at least for me never did anything to help with that.

                makes sense. Strength is strength though so I can't complain.

                I'm losing weight at the same time so I'm not pushing myself too hard until I get to a healthy starting point in terms of weight

                Four month SL guy here, my OHPs were a fucking mess at the beginning. I managed to get a back pain that lasted me a whole week. Now I can manage to do it without arching my back so much, but I still don't quite get the form perfectly. I'll see how I can add what you told me, thanks.

                The exercises I mentioned won't necessarily help with that.
                Watch this video and others on this guys YT channel, he has a lot of good tips on the subtleties on OHP form.

                Turns out I've been pushing the bar away from me this whole time. Good thing I never got to work with more than 70lbs. Also, holy shit he can OHP 220lbs! what a monster.

                Idk where your other numbers are at and if you are happy with them, but the best way to get good at a lift is to do it multiple times per week. OHP is something you can do 3 times a week, at least 2. Might be worth altering your routine to accommodate that.
                I just googled exactly what SS says, and it tells you to alternate bench/ohp. I do both on the same day (CG bench when I OHP first), just with alternating them as "main lift" and "accessory).

                That's SL too. I'll make some adjustments regarding that and squats. I've noticed that some shorts I have feel tighter on my thighs, I rather get bigger on my upperbody if possible.

      Add on curls, a triceps extension and pullups (think they are in the program? just do them every day anyway) and you have yourself a decent full body routine.

      SS/SL but based:

      >A
      squat 3x5
      bench 3x5
      row (any kind, barbell, db, cable, in my experience i've hurt multiple times doing rows with barbells so i stick to dbs and cables) 3x5
      bicep exercise
      tricep exercise
      bicep exercise
      tricep exercise

      >B
      ohp 3x5
      row again 3x5
      deadlift 1x5
      bicep exercise
      tricep exercise
      bicep exercise
      tricep exercise

      dropset the bicep and triceps exercises: 1st set has to be heavy, pick a weight that you can at least rep 8 times and go to failure, 2nd set drop 20% of the weight and go to failure again, 3rd set again drop 20% of the weight and go to failure.

      once bench start to get really heavy you can start doing it at the beginning of the workout and leave squat as the second lift, same goes for deadlift, once it gets really heavy start the B workout with it, leaving heavy deadlifts as last main lift will end up getting your hurt because you're fatigued therefore you'll execute the movement with poor form. 4 arms exercises per sessions may seem a lot but trust me, the arms end up being underdeveloped muscles in these programs, they do need to get a lot of work done in order to grow (in my experience at least)

    Just to let you newfags and retards in on a little secret... Any thread that has one of these "roll for your girl" posts is getting your free bumps.
    You're doing the devils work by bumping a bad thread with an intentionally misleading topic.
    Stop. You're not going to get the girl you roll for, and you're keeping a misleading message at the top of the catalog.
    Roll in pushup threads if you must try your luck.
