If you want to be held to account, post what you lift here every day.

RULES (likely to be amended):

(1) If you skip, we call you a fag.

(2) If you skip leg day, we make fun of you.

(3) I’m fat and out of shape and taking it easy, so no one make fun of me for lifting like a girl. 😳 (Or, wait, yes, do, so I’m motivated. Also call me a fag for starting this thread.)

Monday:

(I’m a mega, mega bitch on legs bc I haven’t done leg day in a year and a half and I’m trying not to rip my quads bc my muscles grow too fast and end up stupid tight.)

Squats: +80
Leg Ext.: 85

Deadlift: +80
Leg Curls: 85

Minor Hip Flexor Exercises with bands.

Clearly I’m not bragging here. Start recording so I have someone to catch up to.

Eddie’s a bitch now. Make sure to record this in the hastily-scrawled hate journals you flick your bean to, wiggies, lefties, and FBI paedos.

Fri 9/23/22

just woke up from my 538th day of accidentally missing power top, power Bottoms.

will vape nicca teen soon and start doing elbow reps with a cold 12 ounce breakfast.

4 day weekend, so I have a lot of cold breakfasts to get through.

later on I will attempt to see if this work out regimen is working by getting into a fight with a minority, a cop, or member of the family.

I finally started doing 5x5. Been doing it for about six weeks now. It's working because I'm starting to eat more. This was today:

Squat: 185
Overhead Press: 100
Deadlift: 235

I also did three sets of ten pull-ups.

But I failed my fourth set of overhead press. I've been reading the stronglifts website to see what to do. I may take overhead press back down to 80 pounds and work back up from there, just to practice better form. I'm sure my form is not ideal for that exercise. The good news is that my squats and deadlifts feels great. No problems there. I know 185 may seem like bitch weight to some on squats, but doing that weight with perfect form, and having no issues or insecurities about it, like I did today, is a big step for me. I used to be afraid of squatting. When I tried doing 5x5 a few years ago, I got to 190 or 195, and couldn't complete it, mainly because I was just afraid of the weight. My max squat is only 225. Right now, though, I'm really looking forward to doing 200 for reps next Friday. I'm very confident I will have no issues.

Sunday looks like this:

Squat: 190
Bench: 145
Row: 115

Because for some reason I have a lot of trouble gaining chest strength, I also add incline dumbbell press on my bench day. It'll be 50 lbs., 3x6, because Last chest day I did 45 lbs., 3x10. I also do chin-ups as well, which will be 3x10. I think I'm going to buy a belt soon so I can do weighted chin-ups and pull-ups.

So I did my workout I already posted:

Squat: 190
Bench: 145
Row: 115

Everything went well, but I was pretty distracted today. I did something yesterday that has me feeling a little crappy today, and while I was working out, I was also trying to coax a stray cat into my garage. I also really had to shit near the end of my workout, and had to hold it in to finish my last two sets of rows. So I didn't do any extra stuff today. Either way, the squats felt great, and bench and row was easy.

Do you have long, ape like arms?
Lol. No, I have normal proportions. I think one of the reasons why I had trouble with lifting weights in the past was underconfidence. I'm not so worried about it now. The last time I did 5x5, I started to fail bench around 150-155. I just did 145 yesterday with no problem, so I'll be back to talk about how 150 goes on Friday.

I just asked because I have pretty long arms lol, not freakishly long, but well above average. Which leads to my bench press being weak compared to my other lifts, because having longer arms is disadvantageous to the mechanics of the bench press. But it's good for Deadlifting for example.

As general advice, most people's bench press is held back by not properly using their back as a platform from which to push from, as well as not using their legs. For example, there is a famous bencher that blew up one of his quads during pressing. But properly using your back muscles is the most important, it protects your shoulders and just makes you push much more weight. So if you're interested in having a big bench press, you should consider that.

Yeah, no doubt my poor form was a problem too. I'm doing my best to improve it on all my lifts. I'm really starting to bring the focus to my body when I'm lifting. It helps me out mentally too.

When you really ingrain the movement pattern into your body, strength training becomes a different experience. Squatting goes from this weird, janky movement that is kinda uncomfortable to something that uses every inch of muscle in the body. After a heavy squatting session that is commensurate to your current strength levels, you feel like a violent ball of strength and horniness(at least for me lol). Or after heavy deadlifting, there is this feeling of agression and dominance. It's something special, but you do have to eat and rest enough to really reap the benefits. Raw milk, honey, garlic and lots of water do wonders. Also berries and mushrooms. As well as the staples, like meat and butter of course. I think you've said you're on keto, however high quality carbs are also immensly useful. I strongly recommend the following book if you want to learn the basic movement patterns properly:
There's surely a free PDF version as well.

3x sets barbell bench, adding 20lbs a set plus a light warm up set
3x sets db bench, adding 20lbs a set
3x set of hex bar deadlifts
3x sets of banded flys
a couple test sets of the fat grips on the curl bar
finally, a drop set of chestbusters (holding 2 dumbbells against each other as you press) with 60s, 50s, and 40s before I put them up

Today is pull day. I will fill you in later.

Tomorrow's agenda:
All reps on a 5/5 cadence unless isometric, one set per exercise.
Neutral grip pullups to failure, shooting for 7
Dips to failure, shooting for 8
Curl timed static contraction 70 seconds
Dumbbell lateral static hold to failure, 25 lbs dumbbells, shooting for 1 minute.
Deadlift, 4x270, first 2 with double overhand grip, then mixed grip, then immediately to
Wall sit, shooting for 90 seconds.
Maybe some treadmill if I'm feeling it.
Short mid week workout.

Updated: Treadmill didn't happen. Workout was only so-so. Everything that needed to move was sore from Monday's workout (mainly hips and abs) Got the 4 on deadlift. Grip is getting difficult on the first two.
