Doesn't work. Apparently my rectus femoris is more flexible than normal, which doesn't suprise me because I've had a hunched back my whole life and tight rectus femoris is usually responsible for hyperlordosis.

Hi /fit/

I lift mainly because it provides me fun and physical attractiveness; however, I don't like doing any kind of isolations, they are tedious and bore the fuck out of me. I can't really see myself doing curls or triceps extensions every week for the rest of my lifting days. So, my question is this:

I'm 6'2'' and currently have 14'' guns which in my frame look petty, what are the chances of developing them to at least 17'' doing only compounds like dips, ohp, weighted pushups, bent over rows, weighted chinups and pullups?

Any testimonies?

What's the source on that pic?
Do fatceps count?

>rotator cuff tendinitis
>bicipital tendinitis

help me /fit/

earlier this year i began doing pushups every night, would do 60 - 100 depending. probably should have realized i needed rest days but i didnt know.

So after a few monhts i ended up with extremely painful rotator cuff tendinitis and bicipital tendinitis in my left arm

Put me oin the sideline for 4 months or so until a last week i decided to start the pushups again. Eased into it with just 20, two nights in a row.

Pain came screaming back

how fucking long is it going to take for this shit to go away? i can't take not being able to do this shit.
>>
>>34037265
You probably have fucked up shoulder mechanics or scapulohumeral rhythm. It will not go away until you fix that shit. Also, you could try fixing your pushup form, the correct way of doing pushups is with elbows at 45° of your body not at 90°.

Would it be too much to wear a spartan costume to a college party or would I just look like a douche
>>
>>34036503

There's no way to wear that costume without looking like a low-effort/uncreative douche.

Even something as similar as a caveman or Tarzan or Hard Gay or whatever makes you look like way less of a douche. The Spartan costume is the "sexy nurse" for boys.

Breast size is hormonal. Get some progesterone cream, put it all over a dildo, and rub it inside your vagina vigorously. The reason why these retards think skinny girls are flat is because skinny girls don't have a functional endocrine system.

It's much easier to get estrogen and progesterone cream than it is to get testosterone.

This isn't bad, but there are a couple flaws.

If you have an A/B workout, I presume you are doing something like AxBxABx. To have squats on both days is beyond retarded and does not allow adequate time for recovery.

Also there is absolutely no upper body workout in any of this. It's great to work your core and legs this hard, but you're going to look ridiculous when you still have flabby girl arms.

What's the difference between lifting at your max weight vs lifting as many reps as you can with lower weight?

One rep max is literally just a test of your one rep max; there's very little or no gains from doing it

Heavy weight/low reps for strength and size

Light (er) weight/high reps for endurance and toning

Bulk buy brown rice and chicken breast. Drink nothing but water and throw some veggies in there. I know the poorfag role well too...shit sucks but we can get through it. And for God's sake man, don't let your gf drag you down. Bring her to the gym with you. If she doesn't, dump her. If you still love her and she doesn't, then tell her you can live with that but you're making yourself better and she's either on board or out of the way. Also how's your form and how long you been lifting?

I've been lifting for maybe two years now. But a lot of that has been through my depression where I barely ate and fought with an eating disorder. I say maybe one year of that has been serious lifting and dieting.

Is this the ultimate cutting drug(obviously not better at its job than DNP, but way way safer) out there? Buddy gave me a full prescription, like around 200 pills. Been taking 1-2 daily, and holy fuck the energy

Literally anything I do, bend down and pick something up would just raise my heart rate like crazy and make me sweat all day. I took some a few hours before the gym and I couldn't lift heavy because I felt my heart would explode. The sweat was ridiculous too.
Not to mention it completely cuts my hunger to the point I have to force myself to eat and sometimes I get nauseous from forcing myself.


Been on it for a good month now, went from 185lbs to 177lb, and like 19%bf - 16% bf. Been really good on my diet, and I feel so lean. Can't wait to get to single digits in a few months thanks to these

>>34035048
it is indeed GOAT for cutting

curbs diet, boosts motivation, makes it so you still have energy even at high caloric deficits, etc. Plus the focus it gives you for other areas of your life is nice

I don't take it anymore but was prescribed for a few years. The only downside is it kind of changes who you are if you take it consistently. Not when you're off it, but there can definitely be some personality changes while you're taking it. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.

Also it's incredibly easy to get addicted to, and tolerance builds way too fast. Would recommend just taking M-F and taking weekends off to slightly reset tolerance, otherwise you'll be upping your dose constantly
