I've been hitting the weights lately. I think it's going well:

Is diet that significant?
I play ball and work out daily so I don't think it has that much to do with genes.

Yeah I'm going to find some simple but healthy diet and try to stick with it. Need to learn how to cook though.

i would say working out is 33%, diet is 33%, recovery time is 33% (not factoring in genetics)

Yes, it is.

It has almost everything to do with genes and fast metabolism. Of course, working out doesn't hurt but it's not what makes the difference in your case I would say.

B-Low, could you spread some knowledge on Rushfit. I checked their website and I kind of get a feeling that this program is more suitable for losing weight. Those success stories featured on the website all had former athletes who had gotten a little chubby and with those 8 weeks got back to great shape.

I'm a tall skinny dude so losing weight is the last thing I want, although it might be nearly impossible. My goal would be to get stronger (which this program would definitely help me) and gain weight. For basketball reasons.

^ StrongLifts by Medhi? I haven't tried it, but a simple diet of sets of 5 reps with continually progressing strength is a no-fail solution I think. Reading Pavel's work has convinced me that there is rarely any need to go over 5 reps in your main, heavy lifts.

Just hit 170 lbs for 2 reps in the Front Squat @ a bodyweight of 165 lbs. It doesn't sound like THAT much but I think you'll find it much harder to FS the same weight you usually do on the Back Squat. Feels good.

rezz: DAMN. Lucky arm genetics indeed. You dudes with the long muscle bellies/muscles are pretty damn lucky. My bicep stops an inch before my elbow. Good stuff, dude.

shlver: You're like that and you eat like shit? HOLY SHIT! Take advantage of that and eat right dude. I bet your results will be off the charts!

Yeah. I finished my second workout today. He recommended to start 45lbs for squats and bench, but I increased to 55lbs. Too light, IMO. My target for the first month is 110lbs for both. Decreased deadlifts to 80lbs cuz I have a hernia. Plans for the second and third month is put on hold cuz I might not make my target.

You're doing isolations?

I'm eating cake. I figure I can afford it seeing as I've already cut 17lbs this month and am down to the lowest bodyfat % I've ever been in my life I'd say. Or at least close.
Not to mention I'm sick, and I always tend to drop weight when that happens, and I don't want to go lower than 205lbs at 6'3. Would look too skinny. Add in the fact it's raining outside, and I broke up with my girlfriend this week, I need some cheering up from this depression. I deserve cake, considering I even did a light workout today while being sick.

I guess I do have pretty good genes then. Don't think I will have the dedication though.

Nah, when I say main lifts, I mean the lifts I use mainly in the name of strength. I mean, I also want to build muscle while doing so, but it's more of 80% for strength gains and 20% hypertrophy gains. Stupid and unorthodox reasoning, but yeah. In my other movements though, I still try to go as heavy as possible, but even if I go heavy there, the way I carry it out is mainly for hypertrophy. For example, this past program I did, my main lift was the Hang Power Clean, where I used the usual set method and worked up to a challenging but not balls to the wall 1RM of 155 lbs. My other movements consisted of Push Presses, Weighted Chin-Ups on TRX, and Weighted Push-Ups, but on each of these movements, I spent 5-7 minutes per move doing a ladder of 1-2-3 to ensure quality of reps. While I also moved up weight here, my goal for these 3 lifts were mainly for building armor.

Well, I've finished another 5-week shindig and it's time for a complete week of rest. My mind and body's already excited for the next mountain to conquer. Since rezz posted progress pics, thought I might too. Probably not as impressive as he is, but I'm pretty damn proud of how far I've come compared to the skinny-fat dude I was before. Crappy quality pics though.





And yes, my face actually did look like that.

Taking a week off after 12 weeks straight of gyming. What I usually do to give my muscles some time to relax and grow.

Am moving house soon, and it is 20 mins further away from my current place, making it a 30 minute drive to the gym... Not sure whether to renew my membership or find a new gym...
I'm not sure if I'm the only one but once you've been going to the same gym a while you become kind of attached to it. haha... It's great for me as well since I'm a student and it shuts late, and when I usually go, there is only about 7-8 other people at a 3 story gym. It's great since I don't have to wait for anyone to use machines/benches/racks and I can even superset, or circuit with stuff this way.

Think I'm going to start eating like a horse again and get on circuit training after my week off. Want to really build up strength and some fitness for that matter. Seems like the best way of burning that energy and still making gains.

So I had a softball game yesterday, wound up pulling my hamstring. Going to take things day to day, but it doesn't seems as if I'm going to be able to run my 5K on the 4th
