How do I bench with long arms without hurting my shoulders? Every time I jump back in they get hurt soon after
Getting even decent ROM forces my elbows to drop "too far" and not parallel to the ground because of arm length

    Any army fags on here? Been trying to find a lifting routine that works well in combination with PT. Our weekly PT plan is kind of retarded, doesn't really provide enough to grow/improve but just adds extra fatigue to my day. Thinking of just doing full body 3x per week so I'm not as goddamn tired. As it is I'm using most of my free time to lift on days that I go to the gym. I got injured a few months ago and now I'm weak as fuck, suggestions?

    The bar should drop to below your nipples
    I have a 6'7" wingspan at 6'4", drop the bar to below my nips, arch as much as I can while keeping my ass down without hurting my back

    It's super important to keep your shoulders down and back and you should feel your lats activate when you push.

    I've actually torn my right rotator cuff from not having my shoulders back

    That said, I have over a 3pl8 bench without being fat so just keep grinding, senpai

      can you try supported rows?

      Does squatting or lifting heavy cause an immediate T boost when you do it?

      no. Test production and levels are all over the place throughout the day, there's not much of a pattern to it. And even if it did, it'd be so minimal you'd never even know it happened, like standing on a grain of sand technically makes you taller but it's not like you'd ever know.

      is it considered bad if I bugged my bosses for a benefits package, file the paperwork, and then immediately put in my 2 weeks? It isn't intentional, I always planned on leaving to somewhere else, but figured I'd ask for benefits in the meantime

      That doesn't look good on you anon, I wouldn't push it. It's just two weeks, it's not like you'd even be enrolled properly in that time.

      My tips for preventing that are:
      Make sure skin is clean before shaving
      Maybe try a less aggressive type of shaving (no idea how you are doing it now)
      Use hydrating cream after showering right after shaving. And for the next 2 days atleast
      Avoid using clothes on the day that you shaved, leave the skin to "breathe" for atleast some hours

    How do i set rest time between sets?

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      if you're doing high volume then lots of rest probably isn't necessary. 1:30-2 mins is safe bet. for low rep strength work a full 5 mins may be necessary. I think you should be resting just enough that the next set is close to failure. ie don't rest 10 mins on a set of 15 lateral raises, it would be super overkill. but 2 mins on a squat double probably isn't enough

    1) Proper form chin-ups/pull-ups shouldn't engage the pecs? I've noticed that if I place my elbows forward in those exercises that the chest muscles pick up some slack from my back muscles.
    2) When doing OHP, the bar should be as close as possible to my chest, while maintaining a narrow grip and vertical forearms? In a thread I cant find now an anon said he taught his friend that a head movement is absolutely necessary to push the bar as vertical as possible.

      If your form is good then you don't need to worry about what is and isnt being engaged. The back will be the primary mover regardless which is what you want.

      Yes, it's most common to move your head when doing OHP. The reason is that you don't ever want the bar to drift forward because that'll fuck up your leverages and make you move less weight

      Depending on your genetics and if you are starting out skinny as opposed to fat you can get there within 6-12 months probably. Lifting weights will be superior in most cases. It's a bit difficult to isolate biceps for example with pure calisthenics when you're a weakling + there's a bigger learning curve to those movements than just curling a dumbbell

      am i gonna have to get fat for 3 years cuz i could also just stay skinny and keep doing calisthenics until i get abs and decent arms

      >If my feet/legs are too far apart when I'm squatting, what goes wrong?
      Nothing? Depending on your leverages you might be stronger with a wider stance. You'll get less quad involvement though.
      >My squats - and only my squats - have dropped significantly after I had a period of illness.
      Squats are probably the exercise that requires the best work capacity. With a deadlift at least the bar rests on the floor so your body isn't working the entire time. With a squat even between reps your body has to do work.

      anon you can't lift to "look like someone" unless you have very similar muscle insertions, bodyfat distribution, face, and a ton of other shit that is randomly decided upon genetics. The best thing to do is just start lifting and discovering what your body looks like with muscle so you can then decide where to improve and how you want your body to look.

My testosterone levels are a little higher than normal, prolactin is in the normal range, my thyroid is fine, I had other blood work done and everything came back fine. I went to the doctor, urologist and endocrinologist and they all told me that I am healthy. I can be with a very hot girl but I don't get horny and that gives me erectile dysfunction, Viagra and Cialis doesn't work because I can't get an erection to begin with. I haven't had a morning wood in months. Yes I do cardio and yes, I thought I might be gay, but I'm not.

      I literally don't know what else to do, I thought about depression but I don't feel bad or sad. I'm seriously thinking about injecting testosterone even though my values are normal to see if that helps. This shit really frustrates me because I'm in the best time of my life in terms of fitness and life, and I can't get a girlfriend because of this reason.

      What else can I do bros. Doctors say I am healthy but my libido and my dick are dead

      Sounds like depression. Do you feel low energy? Do you struggle to get out of bed?

      Are you on No Fap? More than 2 weeks of that kills my libido. You might need to force one out.

          Yes. I'm slightly misrepresenting things. I deloaded everything. After two weeks, everything but squats has recovered. It's now week four and my squats are still at the same level as they were at week two. I'm dropping on my third rep of 1.5 pl8. Before the illness, I was approaching six reps of nearly 2 pl8.

              My diet isn't bad, but I've yet to change it to enhance my lifts. I'm neither bulking nor cutting nor focusing on protein. My mother is in almost full control of my diet.

      A helpful start would be to start counting your calories so you actually know what you're eating and if you're recovering properly. Healthy eating means healthy recovery.
      >Squats are sets of 10 8 and 6
      well anon that's a dead giveaway right there. That's too much volume for compounds imo, anything above 8 for squats is too much to go heavy on. Even 8 is hard to get once you go beyond 2pl8

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      Better than the prone version, but nothing beats seated. Hip flexion from the seated position gives you the best stretch and engagement. If you use this one standing straight up, it will transfer a lot to the glutes, if you bend forward you'll get better focus into the hams.

    I'm a beginner lifter. I haven't reached even a plate on deadlifts yet, that's how new I am.
    I have an issue with my bench press. My arms are all wobbly, and I cant do the lift in a fucking straight line. so to control it I tense up, doing it slow on the way down (this would be the eccentric right?). after the work out I notice that only my right pectoral is tired and sore, left one is not tired at all. How is it possible that my right arm is doing most of the work when the both sides of the barbell lift up at roughly the same time?

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      Bench bar path isn't a straight line anyway, it's a J shape. You go as fast as you can on the eccentric without losing control of the bar. Your issue could be scapular. You retracting and depressing your shoulder blades throughout the whole movement?

      [...]

      thanks lads
      i'll look into flexibility exercises or something and just keep at it

      Best way to get better flexibility for squats is to constantly try to push ROM (within reason). Also make sure you're keeping the bar over the middle of your entire foot, you're bracing, and you're shoving your knees outward.

        Absolutely. In the meantime I asked a friend for an opinion as well, he asked me if the weights were perfectly centered and the arms equally spread out.
        >isn't a straight line anyway, it's a J shape
        I thought was though, from bottom of chest to above the shoulders at full extension.

        I had this same problem when I was fat, keep your feet as flat as you can and just keep squatting as far down as you can while keeping them flat, even if it's not a lot. Your flexibility will improve.

        Also something that helped me was doing kettlebell squats because the additional weight in front of you can keep you balanced.

        Now squats are no issue for me, so yeah it gets better

    I am exercising more but this was happening before I was exercising.

    Eat a modest breakfast of about 500 calories.

    Literally 3 hours later hungry again. Distract myself for an hour. Food cravings. Distract myself for an hour. Food cravings. It's like this all day until I eat like 1000 calories in one sitting, then I feel fine until right before bed, then I can't sleep without something to eat.

    What is happening in my body when this happens? Does it have to do with blood sugar? I will probably eat in a few minutes just to get this sensation to stop. I literally can't focus on anything and have mild brain fog. Water doesn't seem to help.

    I feel good for about an hour after I eat, and then I just go back to brain fog again, but the cravings stop.

              I mean it's probably fine? You'll likely hit a wall pretty quick and will have to implement different strategies of progressive overload. You'd get much faster strength results with a tried and true program though. Since you're already basically organizing it this way, look into 5/3/1 when what you wrote stops working. Different progression scheme for the main lifts but different days for each of them and then accessories after is the main layout of the program.

    Can someone prove me wrong? People who say you need to eat a caloric surplus when weight lifting are really just gaining weight along with building muscle, and this is evident when cutting and see how much muscle is actually left. Why not just lift without eating caloric surplus?

      Because unless you're really fat or are relatively new to lifting, gaining muscle is a lot harder and slower without the presence of a caloric surplus.

      There is no divine calculator that can tell you the perfect amount of food/calories to eat so that you can put on only muscle mass. Your only choice is to eat more. Caloric surplus puts on more muscle than fat while dirty bulking puts on more muscle than caloric surplus but a ton more fat.

          >The hip thrust motion you do as you start to pass the knees
          you should probably start the thrust motion way before the bar gets near the knees. you can only pull so much with your low back muscles before you overwork them and put too much stress on them. i had the same problem, you have to really find the proper way to deadlift for your proportions based on what does and doesn't feel right.

    I'm going to start lifting once my home gym is set up and start with SS or another beginner's routine. Is 15% body fat a good/reasonable goal? Should I try cutting before bulking if my current body fat percentage is above my goal? As a beginner, should I be concerned about this aspect at all right now (I'm not obese or anything)? Would I eventually be cycling between cutting and bulking if I have a certain goal? I can understand following a lifting routine and eating certain foods, but my understanding is that I'd also be gaining a certain amount of undesired fat along with the muscle (?), and the process of determining calorific intake seems a bit esoteric to me.

    • 2 months ago

      Based! Home gym is life; home gym is love.

      Sure, it won't harm to cut a little before you start lifting. But don't cut using calorie restriction. Cut via fasting or intermittent fasting.
      The reason is: you shouldn't do bulk and cut CYCLES. You should just one (1) bulk and cut CYCLE. Your first bulk should last one to two years. But don't see this as a free pass to become a bloat lord. Once you hit 25-28% body fat, it's all over and you need to cut. So don't reach it too fast.
      Once you make the cut, you'll look reasonably good, but you'll need to trade your powerlifting routine for a bodybuilding one and focus on "main-gaining" (maintaining+gaining) instead of bulking. Because bulk-cut cycles will no longer be effective, and you'll just be wasting years of your life and looking no better than your first cut and lifting no heavier than your first bulk. (I'm exaggerating, but only a little).

      Yes, bulking comes with fat and it's ugly as fuck. Record your weight every week. Make sure you don't gain more than 1.5kg per month MAXIMUM. Better aim for 0.5kg per month or even no weight increase at all, especially in your first 3-5 months, when your lifts increase "on their own".
      If you see you're getting too fat, too fast, cut down on processed foods. If that doesn't work, add 1 fasting day per week and you should be back on track.

      Lastly: calories are fake and gay. They are just a gnomish trick to get you to consume sweets and fast food.
      The only things you need to track are your lifts and your weight on the scale.
      Yes, eat a lot of animal protein. If your lifts stall, eat More animal protein. But don't go above the weight gain recommendations i gave you.

          One fasting day a week won't be enough for a cut. You need at least two. But then progress is too slow. So actually you need 3.

          One day fasting per week is ideal for stopping a bad weight gain trend. It's a preventive measure. It's especially useful to "stabilize" weight, when you want to maintain your weight at a newly reached low level.

    >Elbows, knees, shoulders, sometimes neck, wrists, ankles, hips

    Doctors keep sending me from here to there, as a neurologist has near to no clue why my joints hurt, a reumatologist doesn't know shit about nerves, etc.
    I can't find any logic to this. A few weeks ago I did a pissing contest with a colleague and benched 95kg no warmup for reps and I felt fine. Today I did very casual dancing to warm up and my shoulders are fucked.

      I'm starting to think that the reason your body hurts is because you're retarded. ESPECIALLY since the doctors can't find anything on the scans.

      In any case, learn how to warm up and look up YouTube videos on how to treat tendonitis. Also: if you don't do something proactively about your tendonitis, the pain won't go away on its own.

        7 years ago I had an inflamed nerve in my elbow from a sports injury, I had surgery. Before this I rarely had any sort of injury from sports.
        They did blood tests and scans and found elevated inflamation markers and diagnosed my nerve issues through electromyography.

        The benching 95kgs was an example on how heavy loads/intensity/lack of warmup doesn't always translate into pain, and how I don't find a logical connection between taxing my body and the pain as I sometimes hurt more with just walking or sitting.
        I warm up prior to any workout I do, but when you're just going about your day you can't just take ten minutes every time there's a flight of stairs or you have to carry something.

          Ok, makes sense.

          Inflammation is usually related to diet. Unfortunately coffee, alcohol and processed food are all irritants. Try abstaining from all these things for 2 weeks and documenting your pain levels every day.
          Later you can try to reintroduce some of the things you cut out. But do it slowly and one by one. Perhaps then you'll know what exactly is responsible for the biggest spike in inflammation

          Possible.
          During ohp you gotta squeeze your butt and engage your lats (think Bruce Lee doing cobra flex). This will stabilize your back. It will also increase how much you can lift.

          How should one increase intesity ?

          Lift heavier weights, even if it means doing fewer reps (applies mostly to compound exercises). Take more sets to failure or very close to it. Do one "drop set" per workout.

    I’m making a plan for helping my husband lose some weight; I cook the food so I’ll be the one counting the calories etc.
    He’s currently lifting weights at home, though, as he needs to build muscle due to an injury.
    So, I need to have him at around 2000-2300 calories a day to lose weight, while also eating enough calories and protein to build muscle.
    Any tips on how to achieve this balance?
    So far I’ve noted down lean meat and dairy, and any low fat animal based proteins.
    I’m unsure what I should add to that.
    Fx., should I add in a lot of very high fiber foods such as split peas or beans to help fill him up? How important is fiber to weight loss, and in general?

      Add fish (salmon, pangasius, tuna) at least once a week. Don't forget beef liver too.

      Potato is the best carb you can give him. Preferably baked or boiled. (Fried only so long as you put next to no oil.)

      Beans and lentils are cringe poverty foods filled with estrogen. Don't feed this to your husband unless you want him to have boobies like yours.
      I think peas are ok in small quantities.

      I felt a slight lower back pump after this set but nothing too significant, it's a little scary going up in weight.

      It's more likely for a while, until your body adapts to it. You should be shoving your chest up more without sitting your hips down more than you're already setting them. You want to pull yourself into the bar when you start as well.

    What are some things that I can do to increase my self worth and confidence as a man?

    I have realized my social anxiety stems from feelings of insecurity. I get jealous of people and generally feel inferior to people in many ways. I lift already, I work and make pretty big money. But everything else is more or less sidelined.

    I was considering buying some thing to artificially boost it; a Rolex, maybe some new designer clothes, things that give off the appearance of high value. I realize these are not solutions but would maybe kickstart the process of figuring it out for myself.

    Things I'm already doing
    - Make an effort to socialize more often, and for longer periods of time to become more comfortable in social situations
    - Lifting and eating well, trying to become more aesthetic; dressing better
    - Reading more, trying to learn some new skills or make progress in places I've plateau'd

    What else?

    my bloodwork over the past few months show that i have low leukocytes, around 2.9 when its supposed to be at a value of 4 at least, however i didnt have this problem in the past when i was fat. they only got low once i started strength training while on a massive deficit still and it hasnt recovered since. i am a newbie obviously and i train 4x and i go HARD.
    i feel fatigued most of the time but i just put that off as being a normal sign of training hard as a beginner.
    having low leukocytesis also associated with being very prone to infections, illnesses etc. but i didnt even have a cold for two years now.
    did (too much) strength training make me "ill"?
    does anyone have similiar experiences with this? im getting checked up at the doctor but im curious if any other anons ran into the same issue?

    What are your best techniques/supps for recovery? Think I might have apnea or something as I rarely ever feel refreshed after sleeping, often wake during the night (usually due to my shoulders going numb), and never dream. Still I'd like to try and do what I can so I can work a bit harder.

      See a sleep specialist and potentially get a CPAP. You've described me to almost a T, except I don't have my shoulders numb usually during sleep. I'm on my way to getting a CPAP because I've heard they're lift changing if you have apnea.

    can stimulants burn out my CNS?
    I'm on 400mg caffine and 108mg methylphenidate daily for a few years now so I forgot how its like to feel natty. Could this be the reason I'm so cynical? I started hating people even my own parents but I'm unsure whether its based on my experience or I'm cranky from the stims. Any biomed bros? No broscience please

      400mg is a lot of caffeine a day anon, that's basically 32 oz of coffee. I get heart palps at 300mg. I'd ease off it.

    If someone says that they're lifting a certain weight at the cable machine, does that person refer to weight per arm, or weight overall?
    Like, if someone says that their 1 RM at cable fly is 50 lbs, does it mean that he uses 50 lbs weights for every arm, meaning that he lifts 100 lbs total, or that the total weight he lifts is 50 lbs, meaning that he uses 25 lbs weights for every arm?

    I'm new to doing pike push ups, incline ones at that. The ones I do are about a foot or so off the floor. I've been doing them 2 or so weeks now.
    After only 3 sets of 4 (I have weak shoulders) I get this tense feeling in my left shoulder, sort of like a crick in your neck. It's not painful and it doesn't stop me from doing any other exercise like push ups, it's just slightly more sore than the rest of my body.

    Is this just my shoulders getting used to the workout since they're so weak? I massage it and it gone by the morning. Just want to make sure I'm not massively damaging myself.

      Not sure if that's your shoulders getting a pump or something else. Look up Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and see if your symptoms match up.

    gf squeezes the pussy really hard sometimes, sometimes i can keep fucking but she put the clit sucker on today & the pussy squeezed real hard on my cock
    and maybe 10 mins later fucking hard on the floor, she's cumming again; hard enough to squeeze my cock out at the moment i'm nutting
    pulled her hard down on me and shot my seed right at her clit a couple times
    few hours later i'm at work and my dick is super sore like i beat it for hours on end

            I can do heavy benching, OHP, laterals etc with no issue plus this has been an ongoing thing for over a year. One thing of note I guess is that I can't do machine chest press for the same reason, it feels like the leverages of the exercise itself put me in a compromised position.

      just got done with a similar surgery. If you are two weeks post op you can maybe take turmeric/circumin with piperine as part of your breakfast, and add in a 30 minute cold shower to your day. Both will help reduce inflammation and give you a little bit faster recovery.

      If you're still sneezing out scabs and what not pound water, tea, etc, and do any saline rinses your doc told you to do

          consider adding in a lukewarm salt water gargle, really helped me out with all the stuff coming down the back of my throat, and I ended up coughing a bunch of shit out and then just generally feeling better.

          Also, if you ice your nose a little bit before you do the neti pot, it can help reduce the swelling so you'll clear more shit out of there. If the neti pot isn't doing it there are these little squirt bottles you can get that worked wonders for me (nielsen, I think?), you squirt them straight up your nose and they do a great job of breaking up clots. If your doc is based you may be able to get him to hit you with some TXA to help break up big clots. It's not dangerous but it can sting a little bit and feel sort of crappy.

          I'm nearly 6 weeks out and I still have pretty nasty chunks of blood come out once or twice a day. There's not much you can do but stay hydrated, blow your nose, squirt water up it, and maybe take a long hot shower to break it all up a bit.

            All of the reviews on reddit were "the recovery was hell itself, the quality of life improvement was unbeatable, 10/10"
            they did not emphasize the 1-hour-long-sleep, the sheer number of clots, the challenge of drinking or swallowing, the fact the first week has practically disappeared from my memory, or the fact I can tell whether or not I'm going to borderline pass out by wether or not a humidifier is present

      It can be good cardio IMO but it is also a compound back movement that can be very good training for your back and shoulders. Depending on your workout format you can basically do HIIT sets with it and it should give OK benefits

    hello IST, I come for advice.
    Im in quite a situation and I hope you can provide some feedback and useful info.
    To preface, Im a 32 y/o dude, 90kg and 25%bf, with a wife and a baby coming (more on this later)
    I've gotten into lifting about a month ago, and I've been doing StrongLifts 4 times a week with some added accessory exercises, which take me about 1.5h. I go to the gym since I have no equipment nor space to put it in.
    Thing is, the baby will be born soon (this month) and I have to find a way to keep exercising properly, but I have to cut the workout days to 3 (or maybe even 2) and make them last about 1 hour tops.

    Is there any way to progress given these constraints? Is it worth going to the gym 2-3 times a week for an hour? Shoult I keep doing StrongLifts?

      I don't really have much of an opinion on stronglifts but cookie cutter routines are only ok when you're an early rookie IMO

      you can lift 3 times a week if you can spare some extra time per day, just break down one of your days and spread the lifts throughout the other days and you'll be lifting as much as usual

    My shoulder always hurts after pressing movements. Whenever I workout, I work out a few months and get to a decent press and then every weight seems to have this full aching pain.

    I also have clicking in literally every goddamn shoulder movement on my left. My right is fine. It doesn’t hurt when it clicks/pops when moving, but it does get an ache when pressing with any serious weight.

    Have I got a shoulder impingement? Do I need to get X-rays or what? I always end up taking a few weeks off to recover from the pain and end up at square one again. This has been going on for years now
