I wonder when the interent will realise that to make your muscles grow you need to add VOLUME.

Do more fucking reps. Do more sets. Do 200 pullups a day. Fucking get sore and then do it again.

>b-but my food
Yes, if you roid and eat 4000 calories a day you will see crazy gains. If you don't roid you will just become a lardass. You don't need to eat this much to make gains. Just eat high protein foods and fucking ADD VOLUME. This 3x5 shit doesn't cut it.

>>42225040
you start every exercise with 4x8 and work up to 6x12, then add more weight? even deadlifts?

First you need to find your weights. Start light and see if you can do ten reps with it. If it felt too easy, go up until you find that sweet spot weight. This can be accomplished by warming up, or having your first day at the gym just be finding your right weights for the lifts.

Then you lift 4x8 that day. You don't have to actually stop at 8 reps. If you can do more, do it. You shouldn't go to failure, you should go to the rep right before the rep you would fail on. So your goal was 4x8, but maybe your reps were actually 12, 11, 7, 6.

Next workout you should get at least what you got, but hey sometimes shit happens and you hit a plateau or didn't eat/sleep right. Never push out a rep you can't do. So you now want to either get more reps in 4 sets, or get more reps out of more sets (add a set). You also want to lengthen time-under-tension, shorten rest periods, and increase mind-muscle connection (flexing through the movement). So let's say now you lifted 11 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps, 6 reps. That's more work than last time, so you made progress.

Each workout, try to do more reps and/or more sets. Once you work that weight up to 6 sets of 12 (or whatever, sometimes you have to go even further beyond, sometimes you don't), move up the weight. So long as you can stay in that 8-12 rep range.

Linear Progression can cause a lot of problems for new lifters. The good thing about LP is the instructions are simple. But this is greatly outweighed by
>greater chance of injury and "snappage"
>not enough volume to give you enough opportunity to teach your muscles good form
>not enough frequency to help you lose blubber

On deadlifts and squats, it's more like 3-4x5-8. Those are the two exercises I would probably put in that range. You can also go to a higher rep range with stuff like calf raises and shrugs.

Girth is more important than length as long as you don't have a micropenis, I'm around 14-15 cm but pretty think and my GF tells me I'm the biggest she's been with.

A too long dick just hurts the chick unless they're have a gigantic vag, girth is more important because it's more satisfying to be filled up

Why do runners bodies look like shit?

Because running is for weak faggots. Since the daw of time, nature has rewarded the runners with a shit physique, and the hunters, the ones who face the problem are rewarded with a good physique. That simple. You also fuck up your knees running. Running is for people too lazy for sprinting/swimming,it is like the crossfit of non-lifting sports, for nu males and chicks

People who've gotten fit while being with the same girl, how has her attitude changed? Any changes to sex life? Any changes to her behaviour in general?

Women can't biologically be cucks. A cuck is someone that raises another mans child. A woman can be 100% certain that the child that came out of her vagina is hers, a man on the other hand can't be 100% certain that the child that came out of her vagina is his.

This is the same reason why we want non-slutty girlfriends, but still want to fuck sluts on the side. Fucking a slut on the side has absolutely zero biological consequences for the woman.

A cheating woman is worse than a cheating man, simply because of the implications that she wants you to raise another mans child.

This is why I would never take a cheating woman ever back and find men who do pathetic.
>>
>>42225165
If you bring a kid into the family that isn't hers, and she cares for it, that's cuckholdry.

Obviously not as simple for a man to bring in a child that isn't their partner's as it is for a woman, and a man can't lie and tell her it's hers like a woman can, but w/e.

Well, unless you catch something, and if you get hit with child support, that's resources her own children with you will miss out on, but pretty much.

Im making great gains with this

1 max set
3 sets of half your max but weighted
1 more max set

pull ups^

for chin ups I only do weighted since I find them easier.

I go Monday-Tu.-Wed. then Friday-Saturday

Get a drawstring bag and some 5 pound plates and add weight as needed

>>42224293
I just run a length of chain through the hole in the plate and fasten it with a carabiner over a weightlifting belt.

Anyone else scared to lift seriously because of it?

My inner biceps are almost completely covered with big and small marks yet my hands are not big at all

Do you think it may be caused by hormons imbalance from being semi-fat my whole life ? 15-20% BF

should I aim for low BF before trying to
lift properly?

Stretch marks from gains is awesome it means your progressing nicely.

I'm not american

I work in my country's coast guard as an officer

It's mostly paperwork but i wanna try to enroll in a navy seal like unit of my country, gonna try at september even though im old

And yes i do mostly bodyweight. One of the best additions in my workout are those little dip bars you put on the floor and do l-seat dips and an ab wheel

Also definetely do swimming, i'm not good at it and i'll probably never be because i didn't start young plus i have heavy ass legs but the beauty of it is the leaner and heavier you are the better workout you get

I'm so slow though

Hey man that's pretty fucking awesome. I was thinking about maybe dropping weights and focusing soly on pull ups, dips, push ups, etc and upping my cardio a lot more. And maybe cleaning up my diet, which is the hardest part for me.

I had a contract to go to BUD/S (navy seal school) that got pulled due to too many contracts pushing me out. But if you can, try learning the Combat Side Stroke. Once you get that down, swimming is twice as easy.

Also sorry for prying but do you do the bodyweight work every day or do you have a sort of split you do?
>>
>>42225166
Funny thing is that in my country they don't let you do the CSS during training because they go like 'oh look its a SEAL wannabe ' and then they fuck you and all the school along with you. Only sidestroke is allowed and i can easily do 2km of it with no fins. I just hate the fact that they are gonna drown the shit out of me.

Weights are needed but they shouldn't be the only excersise you do. People here have this wrong conception that they can lift 3 times a week and look like athletes, this isn't the case. If you want to look good as a natty you have to train every single day and maintain an active lifestyle(bike to work, don't drink too much alcohol, don't eat white sugar etc.) Just look at a couple generations ago, they would work construction all day, go to the gym and then go out for drinks, sleep 3 hours and do it all over again. I'm not saying that's necesserely healthy but you get the idea. We are way too pussified nowadays.

Also cardio is the most important thing. I used to go on 20-25 km runs once a week during the winter but it's too hot now. I have a resting heart rate of 47. My lungs give out far quicker than my heart does.
