        Not if you weigh 265 lbs it isn't. That's only 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight. You should be eating close to 300g of protein per day. That's about 40% more than you're eating now you dumb niggorilla.

          Its 1g of protein per pound of LEAN bodyweight.

          How many people do you know who have 300lbs of muscle mass?

          it's .5-.8g per lb, and that's just the rule of thumb because it's for normal people at a healthy weight not obese fucks.

    Stop chasing the big numbers and stop doing 1rm max bullshit
    All you’re doing is opening yourself up to injury

    No one but you cares about the number
    Drop this attitude
    Think, am I keeping myself healthy

    This is what it should be about
    The physical and mental and spiritual health are all intertwined

    You are making your body strong to make your mind and spirits up
    Similar to how if your mind is down
    So will be your body

    Believe me once you get really fucked up somehow you’ll be thankful your body was in good shape otherwise it could be worse

    I didn’t think this way when I was younger but life forced me to

    Ain't nothing wrong with being weak. It saves me a lot of work. I volunteer at a thrift store where the seniors I volunteer with or even the customers will do the heavy lifting for me. One time a +60 year old woman took on the task of helping another customer carry a washing machine she'd just bought.

    My mom will recruit my sister and my female cousin to help with practical tasks around the home. Anon didn't have to spend all weekend helping trimming bushes, because anon is not very strong.

    Something IST often overlooks because they don't want to admit powerfat mode is shit: You're too fat. You've always been lard mode. Your body is using up more resources just keeping your fat rather than building muscle.
    >OMG what about strongmen they're fat and strong as fuck!
    You obviously don't have the natural test to be strongfat nor do you roid to be a strongman.

    There is a rather forgiving zone of fatness in which your body can support your optimal muscle growth. Too lean and you won't grow well without roids. Too fat and you won't grow well without roids. You are the latter. And I mean really forgiving. For a lot of guys it'll be like 10%-20% BF.

    Even if everything I'm saying is absolute bullshit, get lean anyway, because if you can't get strong, at least you can be not a pathetic fat fuck.

        no lol strongman is the only sport that actually encourages doping actively except maybe some powerlifting leagues. The only goal is to see strong fat men lifting as heavy as possible.

        Everybody's body is different. If you're a manlet or a low test beta, the maximum strength your body can reach is going to be below average for a high test 6'4 beast.

        The only way around this hard limit is to roid.

    I know people say you shouldn't program hop & I get the sentiment but if you haven't gotten stronger in several weeks, unless you're very strong, you should immediately make a small adjustment, (more volume if you always perform at around your best but never gaining anything new, or less volume if you're frequently under-recovered). Only a retard or a totally apathetic person would do the same thing for a year without progressing, and since you gained 50 pounds I'm gonna say you're a retard

    try lifting with slightly arched back, shoulderblades tucked back, and make sure your arms are wide enough so your forearms point perfectly straight up when you go down, making the movement more efficient. Remember to breath in as much air as you can for PRs because it stabilizes your chest.

    Form matters so much.

    I would also recommend heavy pause reps if your stuck at the bottom or heavy holds if your stuck at the top. Use a spotter for these.
