      Anything else is a meme for beginners

      Can you explain? I thought SS 5x5 and GOMAD was the go-to for borderline anorexic people.

        The amount of calories you are gonna get from drinking a gallon of milk a day (A FUCKING GALLON) while on top of that also eating are way too many for a skelly bulking. You should try eating more but not doing this meme shit because you will just turn skinny fat doing SS. Also SS is not for aesthetics but for strength

          I don't think OP should worry about aesthetics right now. He needs to focus on building a solid foundation of strength and bulk up before he winds up in snapcity.

            FUCK this meme.

            >before he winds up in snapcity.
            So you're saying heavy FAHVS are better for joints and getting proper form down pat? No, that's bullshit, and the program is way too leg-centric in the first place.

            Program a split for him. 2 sets for every muscle group, maybe more sets for arms. If you insist on a full body routine, use the compounds in SS with lower weight, higher reps, and put some isolation work in there for his arms and traps, and I would HIGHLY recommend dumbbell variants over barbell.

              I'm retarded, meant 2 exercises. Set and rep ranges are gonna depend, but imo 3x8-10 for long ROM exercises (such as squats) and 3x15-20 for short (calf raises, tricep pushdowns, ect.)

            I fell for this "solid foundation" lardbrain shit when I started. Fuck you and your 3x5 shit SS programs. If he wants to train for STRENGTH then fine, but if he wants to look good, HE WILL FUCKING DO A HYPERTROPHY PROGRAM EVEN AS A BEGINNER YOU FUCKING moron.

            Also he needs to eat at a calorie surplus, obviously.

      NO!

      Tell you're friend to workout and don't stop for more than a day. It doesn't matter if he's only doing 5 pushups and 2 burpees a day. Simple calisthenics is better for people who just want to start w/o paying for a gym or equipment. He was to workout one day then rest one day for best results. Otherwise, just keep at it, the hunger will come once your body starts working more and you're at a serious caloric deficit.

      GOMAD is the dumbest shit meme I've ever heard. GOKAD is worth a try (kefir), but I have no idea if it will still kill your gains because of all the estrogen mimickers and weird hormones in walmart milk.

      Eat a shit ton of food so that he doesn't look like a ghoul

      So other than eating more, what workout should he do if not SS? I'm going to pressure him to workout with me, but if he isn't seeing noticeable gains I think he's gonna quit so I don't think calethetics is the right choice.

        How long does he think this takes? Definitely not a day, not even if you're pinning. Two weeks to a month at least, depends on how much test he makes and if he's eating clean and taking proper rests days when starting as a DYEL.

        Look at Jeff Nippards beginner programs (just google jeff nippard fundamentals PDF and find it for free).

        These go for hypertrophy, and i assume your buddy wants to look better, and not powerlift?

    Ignore the meme routines and diets.
    For your friend, just grab a lean mass gain powder and tell them to add that as a drink to his breakfast, lunch and dinner.
    Then start him on a basic PPL routine, very low set and rep so he doesn't get overwhelmed.

    All this "BULK UP RIGHT NOW AND START LIFTING PB'S EVERY DAY" advice is pure fucking nonsense. You need to work him into it gently so he doesn't give up.

      3 day PPL or 6 day? Do you recommend a specific variant?

      • 3 weeks ago

        3 for the first 2 weeks, 6 from there on.
        The variant would depend entirely on what equipments available, just google some different routines and see what's most likely to work for your mate, maybe he's too embaressed to go to the gym or something, I don't know.
        As he starts to get close to the normal weight for his height, you can then start looking at specialised routines but you're looking at at least a few months before that.

          Please do NOT make your friend do 6 days a week after 2 weeks. He will quit after 3 months. Find something more reasonable like upper-lower 4 times a week.

    Also, GOMAD is retarded, he's just gonna get fat. Make him get an app like myfitnesspal or chronometer, whatever, and put him on a caloric surplus

    Literally just eat at a caloric surplus--- and don't be coming on here complaining that it's too hard. Eat scoops of peanut butter throughout the day. Put whole milk or ice cream into your protein shakes or smoothies. Smoothies are a great place to get calories... if you're having trouble getting yourself to eat or with your appetite, make that shit liquid and chug it. For calories, add banana, protein, milk, peanut butter, or ice cream, and for nutrients add vegetables like kale or really whatever. Get yourself some dextrose--- not table sugar, which is 50% fructose. Get yourself pure dextrose and add it to your post workout whey drink. The human body cannot effectively utilize fructose, but dextrose (which is glucose) is very readily used.
