After 3 abysmal weeks in the gym where I was taking massive steps back, I had a good one. I hit 365x5 on bench, and pulled 545 on DL.

Only a minor setback to my shoulder, but nothing too serious, felt good not to leave the gym with my head down and pissed off.

I honestly don't get how some people squat that much more than me while having a lighter deadlift.
I'm back to doing 335lbs for 5, for squats... Yet my deadlift is anywhere from 525-550lbs for 1 on any given day.

The thing is, I have quite thick legs, and a somewhat slim midsection, so I don't understand why my lifts are the way they are. I'd naturally assume I'd be better at squats.

Speaking of deadlifts, I found this video really helpful recently. Another Elliot Hulse one, but the guy is great when it comes to help videos and what not.

I was doing form checks with 225lbs all night last night until I was finally able to look at the video and be happy with what was going on.

It depends, a good deadlift is dependent on someone having great leverages and knowing how to use them as much as pure strength. I still struggle with finding a form that feels great to me, but I'm getting there. Also, a lot of times people that squat more than DL or are really close end up squatting high. Of course there are exceptions but a lot of times that is the case. Mine are pretty close but I'm starting to improve my DL and widen that gap.

I've never been much of a fan of Hulse, but I'll definitely check out that vid. He does have some useful stuff.

Good that you realize that, man. I only wonder how I would've performed if I wasn't trying to bulk up at the same time I played varsity ball (which didn't work. Too much energy being used for me to gain anything haha). Good luck on this journey you're about to take.

I need some advice. Looking to try getting some post-training shakes back in, but still not looking to pay for protein shakes after they've done nothing for me in the past. I have some coconut milk ice cream here that I was planning on blending with some bananas and cocoa nibs. If I add around 3-4 eggs in there, you guys think it'll still taste alright? I've never tried the old school egg shake thing. If I'm gonna gag from drinking this, please tell me.

I'm doing the same thing, although Tom Hardy looks a shit load more stockier and bulkier than me since I have a tonne of height on him.

Going as a more lean, taller Bane.

Yeah he's stocky but outside of his traps he's really not that big, I couldn't help but laugh when they had him appear to be 6'5" in the Dark Knight, especially when he put his hand on that guys shoulder

Being bigger doesn't suck but I have no neck, which really does suck, if I had one I'd be a cool 6'3"

Lost a massive amount of weight past 2 months. Not intentional.

Okay new program for hypertrophy.

Hypertrophy Specific Training
Phase 1
Push
Olympic Squat
Leg Press
Incline Bench
OHP
Triceps Push down
Hanging Leg Raises
Planks
Abs and Chin ups (military)

Pull
SLDL
Kettlebell Swing/Leg Curl
Weighted Pull Ups
Low Rows
Bicep Curls
Hammer Curls
Hanging Leg Raises
Planks




Phase 2
2*10



Phase 3
3*5



This is my first time in a decent gym. Ever. Ecstatic. So grateful right now. And after spending time mentally *********ing like a buffoon and nitpicking at food I decided to say fukk it and aim at a ballpark of 3000-3500 calories. Creatine as well. And proper rest. Underwent surgery to fix a broken septumf rom being punched in the fast so breathing rate has gone up.

Inevitably real gains and real strength will come. I peaked at a 230/350/415 at 170ish a few years back, which is a JOKE compared to plow and abuc and bmulls lol. My mentality is that I've never lifted before. I can't believe a few years back I used to do things like eat egg whites, and eat salad without dressing and have no carb days while overtraining to maintain abs God its fun to laugh at myself.

Commence legitimate strength training.

Bad tendonitis in both shoulders has kept me out the gym since Thursday, sucks but I'll be back in there tomorrow.

That said, for anyone that wants their lats to explode I highly recommend one arm lat pulldowns, they've given me some decent wings in a short period of time. You can pull the cable down lower and squeeze at the bottom.

Its actually amazing what 3 weeks of really strict dieting can do for you. I'm at around 208lbs now, no loss in strength, and my arms looks bigger. Still getting ready for the Aussie summer over here, so need to get my abs back haha.

Also, I've never really been a fan of machines for chest, but has anyone given the chest press a decent run? I've been using it a lot lately, and I gotta say, I underrated it, and didn't use it properly before.
I drop the weight real low now, and focus on squeezing like crazy. Really makes your chest burn and gives you a huge pump.

I use machines for chest/shoulder/back to finish out my workouts, I never understood the hate for them, but then again I go for the bodybuilder approach. They are great for finishing and going to failure on, like you said they give a great pump. I usually switch it up from week to week, at the end of a workout I'll use the hammer strength machines one week and then the standard machines the next week.
