        I go to a small gym. I work at a rec center so I get free access to their gym. They only have a Smith machine when it comes to that kind of lifting. I 1/2/3/4 on it easy and I've only been lifting for 2 months. I added an extra 25lbs to compensate for the lighter bar. I saw some old dude take it out one day and start lifting. But I'm new to lifting and not confident. The have a lot of lifting machines that I use because it's fast and easier to do.
        Here is my workout. Feel free to talk shit I need advice. I wanna get stronger the right way.

        5mins of stretching
        20min walk
        Chest press- 3 sets of 10 at 8
        Shoulder raises- 3 sets of 10 at 8
        Midrow- 3 sets of 10 at 10
        Lat pull down- 3 sets of 10 at 8
        Leg extension- 3 sets of 10 at 9
        Leg curl- 3 sets of 10 at 12
        Seated leg press- 3 sets of 10 at 255lbs
        Ab crunch- 3 sets of 15 at 18 max
        Low back- 3 sets of 15 at 18 max

        I don't know how much is each level actually. They use Hoist Fitness branded machines. From what I could find online each level is 10lbs so ad a zero on the end of the level for an estimate weight.

        I'm 6ft2 260lbs

        If this gets ignored I understand. I appreciate everyone here.

          If what you say is true, you need to find another gym. The only way to build real strength is to do compound movements with FREE WEIGHT.

          The Smith machine is like lifting on the fucking moon. It's not real and your lifts don't mean shit.

          You can keep the machine garbage if you want, but if you truly want to get stronger you must squat, bench, deadlift and OHP with free weights

            I'm currently on the just lift meme. So as long as I'm lifting 5-6 days a week and progressing to heavier levels I think I'm doing ok. I can't go to another gym. I live with my grandparents and don't have a car. I looked stuff up on the Smith machine hate and they said you can lift more with your major muscles you just don't work the stabilizing muscles as hard. I mean I'm not looking to become a crazy bodybuilder aesthetics fag. I just want to look good enough so women aren't completely repelled by my personality. I haven't had a woman interested in me and over 8 years and I'm 29 kek.

              It's useful to know...... And I was just saying I might be able to 1rm that. When I do my workout I do 3 sets of 10 reps. I posted my workout above.

              first mistake is training too much imo, i had a phase where i would train 5 times a week too but thats just too much if you are not on steroids.
              Reduce the days you go to the gym to 3 times a week and make the workouts harder, do 3-4 different exercises per day.
              I have a leg day, a Chest/Bizeps day and a back day, you can do the same, its way better.

                Start eating healthier, if you are able to afford Frosta stuff, go buy it its easy and healthy (pic related) eat one bag per day, there are many different variations of them.
                Eat 4 eggs per day 5 days a week to get your testosterone gains, people often dont get that having more testosterone equals being more self confident, its way too good, trust me.
                Just dont eat anything other then salt and pepper with the eggs and you are fine.

                I eat pretty healthy. I haven't eaten fast food in almost a year now. And eat 1-2 meals a day. Total calories for the day around 1600 to 2300 calories. I'll give what you said a try. I've been plateauing when it comes to weight loss the last couple weeks but have been able to lift more.

                Bull. You can work out 7/week natty. Obviously you're not doing a PPL split during that, its the same concept as the full body 5x split - You just spread out your volume over 5 days, except this time you do it over 7 days. GVS said he did it, which gave me the idea. Been doing it for only a few weeks now, but feels good and no issues with recovery yet - just be smart about it and autoregulate if necessary. Another thing I do is have 2 "pseudo-rest days" where I only do isolation work for small muscles eg. side/rear delts, biceps, calves, abs, just shit that doesn't cause much fatigue.
                I had that same shit where every rest day I just wanted to go lift again, I'm also homegym which makes it alot easier

It's easier for me to just go in and set the machines to a certain way and lift. But I'm definitely going to be working more towards what you recommended. Thanks again.

                Except its always going to be harder for lean people to hit 1/2/3/4 which is why that goal is cope. It's easy for ugly fat people and hard for attractive lean people. So fats use it to brag when meanwhile they look like Jabba. Look at this fat fuck here

                He weights 260
                A 1pl8 OHP is .5x body weight
                2 pl8 bench is sub 1x body weight
                3 pl8 squat isn't even 1.5x body weight and a 4 pl8 bench isn't even 2x.

                Relative to his body weight his numbers are complete trash. Yet because 1/2/3/4 only measures weight and not relative weight, this fat fuck is walking around proud of his non existent strength. ALSO 1/2/3/4 says nothing about the Smith machine. So if he didn't disclose that information he would still be bragging about how he lifts 1/2/3/4 knowing full well he's cutting corners in every sense of the way.

                If 1/2/3/4 is your goal, sure keep it. But understand that if this fat fuck can claim 1/2/3/4 then it really means nothing in the end. He isn't healthy, he isn't strong. He's just fat.

                Terrible take. It is easier for someone lean to hit 1234 than for a fatty to recomp and hit it. Eat more.

                In terms of aesthetics? Honestly none. Stabilization isn't what makes your muscles grow or I'd get jacked as fuck from walking on a balance beam haha. Your muscles don't know the difference between a barbell, dumbbells, Smith machine, Hammerstrength machine, or bodyweight. They know tension, and they know stress.

                However, personally I would recommend that beginners stick with free weights and only more advanced lifters use machines (with the exception of cables).

                The reason for this is that machines lock you into a certain plane of motion. When you're starting out, it's important to get a feel for how your body needs to move and how certain exercises are supposed to feel. When you use a machine or the Smith machine, you have to be able to know how to set it up properly in line with your body and the way that it moves and you can't really do that if you haven't actually mastered the lift and developed a good mind-muscle connection and understanding of your own body mechanics yet.

      Those numbers are full of shit. The average guy off the street will bench about 180lbs with no prior training, though most start with lower weight to learn technique first. It should take about 6 months to reach 225, 12-24 to reach 315.

The only way an untrained nonlifter guy (barring some 99th percentile outlier with reduced rom due to barrel chest etc.) benches anywhere close to 185 is by doing 1/8 reps, i.e. not actual benching

Yet because 1/2/3/4 only measures weight and not relative weight, this fat fuck is walking around proud of his non existent strength. ALSO 1/2/3/4 says nothing about the Smith machine. So if he didn't disclose that information he would still be bragging about how he lifts 1/2/3/4 knowing full well he's cutting corners in every sense of the way.

              If 1/2/3/4 is your goal, sure keep it. But understand that if this fat fuck can claim 1/2/3/4 then it really means nothing in the end. He isn't healthy, he isn't strong. He's just fat.

                Duh retard I've been morbidly obese practically my whole life and I just started losing weight in April and just started lifting 2 months ago. You keep claiming I'm bragging when all I've done is ask for advice. Sounds like you're just mad cuz I'm making progress.

                You literally just have to be normal to make progress

                Terms like making progress should be reserved for people who have to try to make positive change. You don't even have to go on a diet. You can literally eat a recommended 2kcal a day and lose weight at your level of fatassness. Imagine a world where a fatty wants to be praised for literally doing the bare minimum. Congrats on getting out of bed too! I know it's hard for your kind

                Never asked for praise. Why do you keep arguing points I've never made? I've lost a shit ton of weight by fasting. I lost 45 lbs of that weight in 2 months by fasting and walking so I could get to a weight we're i felt comfortable working out. Guarantee I have more willpower and motivation than you ever will in your entire life gay. Even when I was 320 lb I was working physical labor jobs out on the fucking river. I'm always the person they ask to lift heavy shit at work my entire life. I'm strong I just ate a lot and had bad parents who enforced bad eating habits. You would never be able to get out of the situation I was put in. There's a difference between fat shaming me like I asked and being a complete fucking cunt retard like you're being right now. The fact that you think you can demoralize me is insane. I can tell you're a fucking pussy.

                Once again you're not asking for it, yet your acting as if the things you've accomplished are deserving of it. Losing 45lbs as a 300lb fat ass is literally as easy as getting a haircut
                >my parents made me fat
                Yup they sure stuffed all that junk down your throat. Another fatty deflection. It can never be your fault right
                >worked physical labor my whole life
                Probably cause you're also dumb as rocks but that's a different topic

                Every post you sound more worthless. I'm not even trying to demoralize you. The sole fact is. Youre already demoralized and you're looking for validation from others. Nobody is going to tell you good job for hitting 1/2/3/4 as a fat ass, on the Smith machine. And nobody cares how much weight you've lost when you still look like a human bowling ball

                Yeah me calling you stupid is hilarious. Because the term is more like idiotic or retarded. I mean really. Did you really post your "body progress pics" thinking you made some sort of accoplishment.

                And yes everyone who is stuck doing manual labor their whole life is typically stupid. One way or another.

                Who said I was stuck in manual labor? I went to school to become a biomed tech but left school because of the politics of the leftists. I refuse to give money to institutions like that. And I'm naturally strong so why wouldn't I go into a job where I can get stronger? Also Im making more money than all my friends who have degrees. I post my body progress pics because it's helped me when other people have posted theirs. And I've objectively made progress. Sorry I'm I choose to be a beacon of light for others while you choose to be a dark loser void. From our conversation I know I'm a lot more intelligent than you'll ever be. And I have a stronger will.

                I might be able to 1rm that. Maybe I should try and find a real bench instead of a Smith

                im not talking about 1rm, who tf gives a shit about 1rm? I mean 8-12 reps 3-4 sets.

                You dont need to focus on numbers when you are starting out mate, train how it feels right for you.
                Just determine a weight that fits for you to do the 8-12 reps max with and i mean max, you should not be able to do more then 12.
                And then do 3 or 4 sets with this weight, leave enaugh rest in between sets and you will soon see progress. Good luck.

    HEY READ THIS FRIENDS!

    When I was sick with covid I had muscle pain all day and at a certain point my mind started interpreting all that pain the same as light passing through my body. Since then I feel in all pain the same way I feel light; as a wavelength passing through my physical form instead of as a sensation radiating out from inside me. I don't know how I can benefit from this, but it's pretty neat.

      That's pretty awesome. I can switch into that mode too now after years of meditation. It's not like ignoring the pain or dealing with the pain, more like transcending it and it becomes something cool to look at. Hope this is the beginning of a wonderful journey for you fren

    My bench has gone from 40kg 5x5 to 80kg 5x5 in 6 weeks.

    Am I going to snap my shit up at this rate or is this normal?

    I actually did 80kg 5 x 8 the last week because I felt so pumped.

    I played sports in highschool 10 years ago but never went to the gym before I started recently.

    No other of my lifts are going up this fast. I can barely OHP 40kg for example.

    How to cope with the fact that most gyms in the third world I live don't have enough necessary equipment? I swear the cheapest gyms next to my house have like only 1 or 2 benches it looks awful and I'm not experienced enough with different exercises to adapt. My only option is to walk 10km.
    Also, info overload as a newbie really fucks with my mind, I guess I just gotta stop thinking about routines and lift.

      You just need a barbell and a rack. Just focus on the major compound exercises. Squat, deadlift, overhead press, bench, rows. All of them just use a barbell. No need for fancy equipment. Also you'll want to do pullups too.
