Foam rolling the critical bodyparts

Make your own foam roller

so I do some bodyweight training at home, nothing too harsh, I plan to join a gym when I can.

as of now, however, I am limited to my iron gym pull-up bar but I can't really do more than 5 pull ups. on the first set. on the next I do like two and can't complete the rest of the set no matter how hard I try. how? I usually do reverse-pull ups because I can do like 20x3 but supposedly you shouldn't be doing reverse ones unless you can't even do one pull-up at all.

what do, /fit/? do I keep doing half-assed pullup sets or do I just perform reverse until I can get to a decent number of regular pull-ups?

been thinking about it. maybe I should do something like one set of 5 pull ups, and then 2 sets of 20 reverse pullups. what do you think?
Try Major Armstrong's pullup program.

I posted this the other day, Just wanted some more advice before my next session. A friend says I should widen my stance and rotate my feet out a little.

Also how is my depth
Did you get that advice as a solution to some kind of problem that you expressed?

In my opinion you should be consistent with your stance and experiment only when you have good reasons to
He said that because I have some slight caving of the knees, and he also thought widening would make it easier for me to hit depth.

Depth looked a little high at 180, ok at 170. You could try widening the stance a little, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary, looks like you're able to hit depth as it is.


I didn't really notice much of that.

Because I don't want to sacrifice the lean look for some mass plus high body fat %.

I can't get too heavy because I also play football. I need to be agile and quick and thats pretty hard if you gain 10-15-20 pounds

Because Maxx Chewning is strong as hell at only 165

Because relative strength at low bw is important for athletic endeavours.

Hey /fit/, I'm a fairly young guy, and have a good five years of growth within me, so my physique is subject to change. Regardless, I'd like to know the average breadth of a /fit/ man's shoulders, and how I can increase my own - people tell me that I've got a rather "solid" build, so I'd like to accentuate this.

I've been lifting for half a year, and am naturally strong, so I'm capable of most exercises/routines that may be suggested. I currently weigh 93kg, and stand at 5ft 10 (not fat, just broad, yet still a manlet.)

The lack of any sort of muscle definition puts you beyond 20% bodyfat. You're fat.
Standing next to my taller friends (6ft 2 upwards) my shoulders are as broad as theirs. My deadlift is 100kg as of last week and I can plank for 5 minutes, so it's not like I'm without core substance. I'm shorter than most players, but I'm hardly knocked around in rugby either.

The point is that I know I'm no feather weight, and I'm not aiming for single digit body fat, rather, what would be considered a "bulky" physique.

Regardless, thanks for the decent response.
you're overweight, so of course you're broader, if you lose weight your shoulders will become smaller.

also I deadlifted 100kg on my first day in the gym when I was weighting 69kg dude wtf did you mean 200?

You're not special or different, you have some muscle but really a lot of fat.

If you want to get larger than keep eating as much as you do and do a program that goes with rugby, I'd guess 3x5 fullbody
It's all very well to callously throw around the word "fat", followed by the phrase "no muscle definition". Thing is, I need you - if at all possible, given your pathetic level of intelligence - to account for two things:
i) Lack of visible fat, as well as my established "stocky" build.
ii) density of muscle, especially that which has been developed over the course of 4+ sport seasons and 1/2 year of lifting.
Yes, I'm 5ft 10, yes, I'm 93kg. Any fat on my body, however invariably present, is far below the percentages suggested by some anons ITT - especially given my established core strength.

If you want proper critique then post a proper pic.

You're too fucking cowardly so you only let us see what you consider to be your best part; your definition-free chest

Maybe they are less autistic than you and dont jerk their cock for a minute before taking a photo.

A woman with soft features is obviously attractive.
i've got a big floppy dick, but when i'm at the gym it turns cold and small because all the blood goes elsewhere
>work of art point of view?
Man. Men just have more to look at and mire.
>artist's point of view?
Woman. I might be just an old horndog, but I find drawing and painting women immensely more satisfying than men and in general enjoy art depicting women way more than men.

Look at her, /fit/. Look at this dumb fucking whore. Look at her dumb whore hair. Look at her dumb whore expression. Look at her dumb whore shoes and her dumb whore outfit.

As we men push ourselves, from our physical state to our very being, to the brink of human potential, this piece of shit excuse for human being lives on, quarter squatting her way to wealth and sex. How can she do this, you might ask. Because of the moist hole between her dumb whore legs guarantees she'll never have to truly work a day in her life. It guarantees she'll never have to spend a day expanding her mind with books and philosophy. It guarantees she'll never have to spend a day sculpting her body by lifting weights and dieting. It guarantees she'll never have to spend a day in her sad, pathetic, meaningless existence becoming a better individual.

She sits around. She has no purpose. No passion. No reason to exist. She is a sponge who sucks the constant validation of her countless beta orbiters and who sucks the dicks of alpha males like us when we demand it. She, like all women, is a worthless human being and must be treated as such. It is our responsibility, as men who lift, to domesticate these moist holes. We must teach them right from wrong, how to behave in both public and private occasions, how to obey orders. That is their purpose. And our purpose is to ensure that purpose is met.

This isn't just a post. This is a cry to action. To all the men who have ever bled. To all the men who have ever wiped the sweat from their brow after a hard days work. To all the men who have ever cried over the loss of something we worked so hard for. I'm calling you to action. We, as men who squat a deep, full squat, it is our responsibility to fix this dying world. But I can't do it without you. So I ask you one question.

Are you in, or are you out?
The bottom of a full squat is a position with minimal muscle activation. A half squat, like that, is being used as a static hold to help increase muscular strength in the old woman's quads that she's training. This is perfectly legit.

Hope that clears it up.

Does anyone have that picture of the study where they compared muscle gains in a natty person with someone on slight/moderate/heavy steroids?
It was something like 20-25 grams per day for the natty.
Try intermittent fasting.
Takes a few days to get used to it, but now I don't even get hungry until noon and can then eat large portions while still staying below TDEE
Is BCAA useful for a slightly overweight femanon? I go to gym 3times/week and do some streetworkout 1-2 times a week.

i know it's don't to supermarket waste but the irrevocable rules of supply and demand will change things. In France they have made it illegal for supermarkets to throw away food. Where is it going to go? I would hope to homeless shelters or to shops that sell the waste food at a cut price. It has to be local efforts. The third world has to sort itself out. Its a leadership issue more than anything.
>>eat food that could go towards solving world hunger
The world already produces enough food for everyone to live a amerifat live style. Problem is shipping. And to be fair, 3rd world country faggot are to lazy to fucking work because they expect handouts from their former colonial overlords.

A lot of people have tallest poppy syndrome.

I think bmi is the great leveller for this between the sexes. Women will focus on weight and men on height. I noticed when my mentally disabled brother had to have his bmi monitored and lost weight, both manlet and female carers would decrease his height a ridiculous amount (like 6 inches or more) and he'd somehow gain about a stone. But you get all sorts of people measuring him so the results were showing him growing and shrinking quite a bit.
