You gotta train to failure, they said. Don't train to failure, hold back some for systemic fatigue, they said. You'll easily hit 1/2/3/4 for noob gains, they said. Doing lower reps for more sets is better, they said. No, don't do that, you have to do hypertrophy cycle first, they said. Don't even train hard. you gotta manage CNS fatigue, they said. Just follow a program for certified gains, they said.
I've made fucking 0 progress over the past YEAR. I'M STILL A DYEL FUCK. I GET MOGGED BY DUMBFUCKS WHO GO TO THE GYM FOR FUN. Can't believe I got convinced to do this shit.
Hot tip: Just lift, eat, and sleep.
I do that everyday
I do that everyday
I do that everyday
And I've still made 0 progress.
lift better, eat better, sleep better. skill issue. fix it.
2x frequency, 10-15 sets per muscle per week
2500+ calories, fat as fuck, good protein intake
at least 7 hours a day, more likely 9
I'm in a similar position to you. I've been living for a long time and my lifts never progressed into what most people consider intermediate territory. I'm not saying that I've trained like a pro athlete, but I've put in significant time and effort and the results just don't come the way they do to most people. I still lift because it's a good challenge and I think it still offers a health benefit.
Take a blood test with all the bells and whistles. Seriously
Have you considered doing more of all of those things instead of just being a whiny fag on the internet?
If you enjoy it keep going.
Biggest thing I can say, is attack your weakpoints, fix them, and compounds will go up.
If you can't squat find a variant you can, or fix your shit.
If you aren't training hard, max that out first and see what happens.
Lol sucks to suck man. Did you have fun? If you don't enjoy lifting then maybe try something else. I've been 5'9, 140ish lbs for years but I enjoy lifting so i keep at it. That said my lifts have gone up and I've gained a little but of muscle bit I'm basically a genetic freak for lack of muscle gain. It is what it is. Do what you love homie
I find lifting fun, but it isn't fun when I get mogged by people who just go, lift, leave, and get bigger than me. It isn't fun when I LOSE strength and don't progress. I'm either retarded, missing some crucial part of lifting, or I'm just a dead end genetic freak.
I get this and I used to hate it too. It can still bother me if I focus too much on it. Tbh that's never gonna change and if you are like me you are never gonna be the biggest or strongest or shreddest guy but you can still be a sicker cunt than you were yesterday. If I wanted to be "good" at something relative to the average joe maybe I'd try like half marathons? Idk I fucking hate running so that's off the table. You just gotta try to not worry about other peoples progress. Sry mang I know its not much but its the best advice I got
I've make shit progress over a year and half but I made a ton of mistakes, I've threw I'm Squat Every Day, I've had like 5 different programmes, I stall like sedan in a tar pit. Finally found myself a programme that I really like (Hepburn method) and I'm doing well on it so far. Just gotta keep showing up.
AND EAT MORE.
I eat plenty, I'm overweight, 30% bf, eat about 120-150g protein each day, and I still don't make shit. I go to the gym 5x a week and have lost progress.
How long have you lifted and what's your OHP/Bench/Squat/Dead max?
Over a year
about 110/175/don't know/260 lbs. I can't back squat
>I can't back squat
Thank you Almighty God that you didn't make me a mentally and physically weak loser
I have mobility problems, I've been doing stretches everyday to no avail. I front squat like 145.
>I can't back squat
Do you at least dumbbell or kettlebell squat?
Well, I've been at it about 18 months and I'm 120/175/220/265
See? I've got dogshit numbers too. Not all of us can be Chad hitting 1/2/3/4 in 3 months I guess.
There is probably multiple things you aren't doing right that most people who mog you don't even think about.
I go to the gym for fun and I'm skipping the gym to drink a beer right now. Just enjoy life bro you're gonna die pretty soon. Don't be a retarded hedonist gay though.
Most things are bell curves. You're at the bottom of the bell curve, that's all. Not everybody can be winners or even average, some people have to suck.
Why post the pic of a cutoff ancient giant super tree.
>the stomp grows grass
It's a plateau.
A fake one.
what the fuck is a ((plateua*~~ ?
>Listening to "them"
Who am I supposed to listen to?
Add weight or reps on a weekly basis, while doing a decent amount of volume for each body part and training close to failure.
Rest until you’re almost recovered, then go again.
If you don’t want to make your own program, then do SS, SL, or GSLP.
I’ve been working out for 15 years. I’ve made most of my progress in the last 5 years since I got a home gym. So much easier to just hit the weights consistently. I’m focusing on upper body right now and all I’ve been doing for the last 2 months are,
OHP + pull ups
Dips + triceps push downs
Takes about 30min, 3 days per week and it’s a lot of fun. Doesn’t fry you and you’re fresh for the next session.
>natties complaining about being DYELs not having worked out for at least 5 years
You probably kept switching programs instead of sticking with something consistently, or got frustrated that you weren't progressing as fast as you wanted.
Quit seething about people "mogging" you and just focus on doing your workouts consistently.
you vegan or something?
Eating is 90% of the job. Going to the gym is the remaining 10%.
