      If you're getting nauseous from aerobic exertion you are either lifting like a tard and doing 30+ rep shit with squats or something is wrong with you

    Is this true:
    If you don't feel DOMS then increase rep range until you do to develop mind-muscle connection.
    Non-responders = higher reps until muscle does respond.

      No. Nothing but progressive overload is true. You really think that its possible to bench 4pl8 but because you didnt get DOMS or felt mind-muscle-connection you just unluckily didnt build any muscle but yeah you bench 4pl8? You fricking gays need to understand that there is no other metric than progressive overload and putting up more weight on the bar. And now dont twist my words, putting more weight on the bar and then doing worse ROM is not what Im saying. You keep the variables same, but load up more iron. Thats the only thing that matters.

      Pump, feel, MMC, DOMS, volume, frequency, none of this matters at all. After the initial neurological adaptation to strength training and learning technique -> thus increasing weight, its not possible to not build muscle and get stronger. That is the only thing that matters for naturals.

        Actually its gotten worse. Where did the disconnect come from? How do people actually think they can put up pissbaby weight for 100 reps and think they’ll get big. At least when I put in a bullshit day Im honest with myself

        Yes, if he can bench 5 pl8 but chooses to bench 4, you won't build muscle. Now scale down the numbers and you see anon's predicament

        This post is largely bullshit because all those matters, and there are multiple ways to disadvantage most lift such that the same load lifted differently equals higher internal load on the muscle.
        But I agree with the principle, most people are too moronic to get the simple stuff right so the above is not for them.

    i thought everyone on this board is autistic. how do you be autistic about lifting and not give it 100% all the time?
    any time i’ve thought about leaving the gym with a lift not lifted or not completing all my sets, i hyper fixate on it and i mentally abuse myself
    >stop being a pussy homosexual, anon
    >remember the gains
    and then i finish my routine.

    you arent gonna make it if you don’t push yourself to the limit, unironically

    Someone redpill me on this, I rest for a minute and so do most people at my gym but I've also seen people recommend resting for 5 minutes between sets.

      60-90 seconds hypertrophy
      180-240 seconds for strength

      I cannot redpill you but I know it's impossible for me to rest for only 1 minute if I do any serious (for me) compound lift. eg. I do weighted pull-ups and the last rep is really to failure? I definitely need 3-5 minutes until the next set. But if I'm doing some curls I don't need 5 mins rest. For me it works empirically like this.
