    Read the sticky.

    Diet:
    >Eat real food
    >Eat mostly plants
    >1-2g protein per lb of bodyweight if you're trying to gain lean mass

    Exercise:
    >Push, pull, upper, lower.
    >Power hypertrophy upper lower
    >Swimming
    >Sports and martial arts

    Mindset:
    >Small, consistent, changes are far better than grand gestures.
    >Grand changes are still fine, though, as long as you don't burn out completely
    >Don't have an all or nothing mindset, break that habit (most people do it to some degree). Have the opposite mindset: if you have that slice of cake, then you need to compensate for it in some way.

    That's it. There's no magic pill. You do this, more or less, for the rest of your life, or you suffer the consequences. The most important thing is that you find sustainable ways to live, you're not always going to have a perfect diet, so if you allow every slip up to turn into an excuse to totally relapse, then you haven't even made any real steps towards change.

    I got a few red pills I discovered as I continued lifting. Keep in mind this is from personal experience.

    - Most conventional back and chest exercises are limited by the strength of the arms, which tend to fatigue quickly before the chest and back muscles can be fully worked properly. I solved this by doing seated dip machines and straight-arm pulldowns which allows me to overload and work the targeted muscles.
    - You can’t isolate one part of your chest. The biggest chest muscle is the pectoralis major. This is a two head muscle with one part attaching to the collarbone and the other to the chest bone. You can’t contract one head without contracting the other. Both heads contract whether you do either flat, incline, decline bench press.
    - Built a budget home gym by getting a hex bar, pull-up/dip tower, Olympic plates and a dip belt. The hex bar deadlift, plus the chin up and parallel bar dip, cover most of the major muscles in the body. I did this during covid when the gyms were closed.
    - Warming up using ramp sets followed by one work set allows me to progress without stalling.
    - OMAD is the best way to lose fat.

      This is often due to moment arm. People with longer arms, due to mechanics, stress their arm muscles.

        I never done back off sets unless you're doing reverse pyramid training. How I do ramp sets is I do four progressively heavier warm-up sets followed by ONE work set with the top weight for the day.

      The chest part sounds wrong. Of course you can never isolate completely one muscle out of all your body, there will always be some other muscle helping your movements. With the chest specifically you can overdevelop the lower head and look like you have man tits, most bodybuilders have this issue. Incline bench excercises contract better the upper head of the chest leading to more activation and more hyperthophy.
      >The biggest chest muscle is the pectoralis major.
      The whole chest is called like that, you mean the sternocostal head.

      Power rack with an olympic bar and bench isnt that much more expensive i feel like and you don't even need a spotter with the safety bars.

    If you want to be lean all you need to do is be active every day and not eat until you have abs

    You can lift heavy/hard and just not eat and you will still recover enough to workout again without eating. I have done an SS-like strength routine while not eating for a week straight

    "Dieting" is a meme. Your body can go without food. Just don't eat and exercise so that your body retains your muscles. Getting in shape is that simple.

    Bench press is EXTREMELY overrated, and honestly shouldn't be touted as the go-to chest exercise.

    bench press doesn't activate my pecs all that well, and I had to let go of dogma of bench press being a main movement and go with dumbbell chest flys and machine pullovers.

    SO much more activation, I actually got DOMS doing flies over a bench press the first time I did them.

    If the bench press works for you, fine, more power to you, but the stigma that you HAVE to do them is retarded.
