High protein, low carbs. That's all there is to it. At about 1800 calories a day. Not no carbs, mind you, but at least less than 50 grams a day or thereabouts.

For the dude who called me fat. Yeah, I've got some fat, but I look pretty decent for 194-195 pounds. I think I'll look pretty damn good at 175.

My chest, shoulder, and back development isn't half bad, really. I shoulda wrote F2 backwards, but waddayagonnado?

Well, there's certainly nothing wrong with that. Doing something, anything, with regularity is good. I mean, when it boils down to it, the only thing you really NEED is to be in decent cardiovascular shape.

I have met the goals I had for squats and deadlifts (315 for reps on squats, 405 for deadlifts,) which, by lifting standards, are quite reasonable...there are 155 pound guys who can do that much, and I weigh 40 pounds more than that.

My last real remaining goal is to get visible abs, which I've never had. When I graduated from highschool back in the 90's, I weighed 155 pounds, but with no muscle. I think once I get down to 170-175 pounds with the level of muscle I have now, it might be attainable.

I'm going to do it one way or the other. I have to be goal oriented in the gym, or I have no reason to go (in my mind.)

Of course, getting visible abs is going to be harder than any of the other goals I had. Abs are 95 percent diet, which is the stumbling block that every tard who buys an ab cruncher machine doesn't realize. I'm making progress, though.

No way in hell am I doing anything that involves the back. Every meathead fucktard over 30 I know has fucked their back up horribly and are going to be in pain every day of their life. They can't even shovel snow :lol:



Dude. I go to the gym with actual powerlifter competition guys in their SIXTIES who are way stronger than me, and they're just fine. I'm only in my early 30's, and I have no problems. A lot of bodybuilders and powerlifters don't even peak in strength until they're in their 30's and 40's.

Being that I have no aspirations of being either a bodybuilder or a powerlifter, I don't lift anywhere near as hard or as frequent as they do, but still.

madelf. said:those thighs look terrible and out of proportion with the rest of the legs..

what about those squat machines? nautilus made one that allowed you to safely load up on weight. i remember piling weight on back in the day.



They'd look better if I showed a larger picture, but that's the best it's gonna get taking a picture on the mirror in the bathroom. My calves are decently developed as well. That's kind of at an oddball angle, looking down on my legs. If there was someone else here to take a picture from like 15 feet away looking straight at them, it would look more natural.

The nautilus or hammer strength squat machines are alright for accessory workouts, but they take away much of what the squat is really good for: everything. It's a full body workout, and you can do them as a woman, too. Get someone who knows what they're talking about to instruct you.

There's plenty of danger in using those machines if not done correctly, as well.

I'm 5'11, 194 right now. I'm currently cutting down to 175 or thereabouts, while keeping what strength I can. I can currently squat 300 odd pounds for reps, which is horrible for powerlifter standards at my weight, but I have no interest in powerlifting or bodybuilding. I like going to the gym because it's fun. I had a goal of being able to squat 315 for reps, and now I can do that. I have no inclination to go much higher.

We had a Zayres in addition to K-Mart, Wal Mart, et al.

The one thing that stands out in my mind about Zayres...I remember going there once as a kid, after Atari had fizzled out, and they had all their Atari games on sale for like $2 a piece, marked down from like $40 or $50, or whatever they were previously. I remember seeing that and begging my parents to buy them. I think they let me buy five or six of them that night.

Ironically those cartridges are probably worth more now than they were then.

Toys, no. Clothes past grade 5 or something, yes.

Even before I started wanting "brand name" mall clothes at 12, at least my mom bought my clothes at places like Sears and JC Penney.

He even got custody of their two kids because she was such a deadbeat. Your mileage may vary. This girl was a moron from the getgo. I'm sure nice, reasonable bartender chicks exist.

Gen X "grew up" in the 80's and 90's. Gen Y grew up in the 2000's.

Edit:

Well, I guess that all depends on what years you consider "growing up." As a child, sure...I'm just nitpicking bullshit, ignore me.

Gen Y was ruined by the internet, in my mind. They were the first generation to grow up from a young age with the internet. Now they're a bunch of poofters.

Yeah. I haven't even downloaded any yet, but I've read that's all you have to do. If you're on a rooted device (and you are,) you just have to make sure that "allow unofficial apps" thing is clicked on, which it probably is. It's probably on by default on your new ROM.

The cocksuckers at AT&T make it impossible to use unofficial apps in their stock ROMS.

Oh, and that's one thing Android does better than I-phone, installing apps. Fuck itunes up the ass. Fuck itunes both on the iphone and on the PC. Clunky, slow, piece of shit.

On the Android you can queue up a shitload of apps to download really fast without clicking through screens and having to reclick the app store and what have you.

Or, if you download them off the internet, you just have to copy them to your SD card.

I've had an iPhone for years now. I bought a refurb 2G months after they were released, and then a 3GS. My upgrade was up this week, and I got an HTC Inspire. I never bothered upgrading to an iPhone 4, because I didn't think it was worth it.

I've never owned an Android phone before, but I really like this one...it's 2 years newer than the 3GS, so it's not really a fair comparison. Obviously, it's a far better phone than the 3GS is. The screen is amazing (far better colors, 1 inch bigger,) it's faster, 8 megapixel camera, and so forth.

For my use, one phone really isn't any better than the other. I rooted my Inspire yesterday, and installed a recooked ROM from xda-developers. My iPhone was, of course, unlocked.

All I do is:
Talk on the phone.
Look at the internet if I'm out somewhere / check e-mail.
Listen to Pandora at the gym.
Tether to a netbook via wifi for work (rarely anymore.)

Being that's all I do, both phones do them pretty damn equally, aside from the fact this Inspire has a lot bigger and better screen. All the customization and the control of the Android is great, for people into that. Being that I only use a handful of apps regularly anyway, it doesn't mean much to me, but it's nice I have the option. It's nice to know you're in full control of the operating system and file system if you want to be.

It's a requirement for me to have a phone that can be unlocked / rooted, able to "steal" tethering without paying AT&T's ridiculous fees, and can install downloaded (i.e. pirated) apps. This Inspire can do all that in a nicer package than my 3GS did, so, I'm happy with it. Whether or not it's nicer than the iPhone 5 will be, who knows...it really can't be much better or worse for my use.

. said:Probably, I'd never do a fucking deadlift. You'd have to have rocks in your head to do that over years.

I've been lifting for 25 years. I fucked up my back once. Never again.

I use leg press, leg extension, leg curl, adduction, etc. selectorized machines for upper legs. I use the free weight calf machine for calves. For back, I just use the back extension machine with perfect form.

(snip)




I'm aware anything "can" happen, but I don't see it as being evident in the people I see at the gym.

I'm in my early 30's. There are 55 to 70 year old men at the gym I go to (yes, 70 year old men) who are absolutely stronger than me in every way.

There is a now 82 year old guy at the gym who was, 10 years ago, still deadlifting somewhere around 500, and was doing 600 in his 60's. There are a number of 60 year old guys still benching 350+. There are 45 to 60 year old guys who rep good quality, ATG squats at 315.

These guys didn't just start doing deadlifts and squats yesterday. They're still walking.

The 82 year old guy I'm talking about DID hurt himself severely doing heavy rack pulls a few years ago without warming up first...but to be fair, he was like 75 at the time.

. said:A real squat with a barbell is the worst fucking exercise you can do. Why? Because you WILL fuck up your back one day. And you'll get the hemmarhoids as well because all the pressure of pushing up goes to your asshole.

Your form has to be just about perfect to keep the discs in your back from popping out. You can do it for a few years. But one day.. one day.. you'll get a twinge in a musle in your back or your foot will slip a tiny bit or you'll cough

or your disk will just squeeze through whatever opening it can find and then POP

your fucking back goes and you're lying on your back on and off for about 6 years IF YOU ARE LUCKY



Horseshit. Are you the same guy who said deadlifts were bad earlier?

As for the original post:

I can squat 1.5 times my weight. I can (slightly over) deadlift 2x my weight. You can find videos on Youtube of 155 pound little fucks deadlifting like 455, and they're just, like...non-competing college kids.

I can't bench press 300, nor can I press 200.

Pressing your weight is a fairly tall order for most people. I can do 135 x 5 or 6 times with good form. I don't know where that'd put me for a max, but it isn't anywhere near 200...and my strength isn't going up on anything, nor has it in the past year (I eat a maintenance diet of around 2000 calories.)

My flat bench is bad. I workout by myself, so I can't really push myself on freeweight barbells. I use dumbbells most of the time.
