What is the consensus about Mike Mentzer's Heavy Duty routine? It seems to worked well for him and the people he trained.

Did it in the 90s, was good for strength and shit for mass.

I thought strength = size?

What’s a good routine for mass? I’ve been lifting casually for three years and I’m looking for a routine that I can ideally run 3x a week to maintain my size in perpetuity, that has minimal impact on joints (eg no heavy diddlies), and that I can complement with yoga one day a week and cycling one day a week to stay healthy and limber.

For maintaining for aesthetic purposes, is a full body better, or a three day split?

Volume. But it takes a load of time and really much food. Nowadays, people are doing low volume and steroids for mass.
>>
>>51262969
Good to know. Thank you very much.

Can you maintain without getting fat? Could I expect some modest gain if I eat slightly above maintenance without adding body fat, or given that I am at roughly intermediate lifts, will I expect to only maintain?
>>
As already stated - I didn't get swell with it. It was a nice experiment though.
I read his books and it was pretty fascinating but there was little usability embedded within his paradigm for me. The body adapts and its ability to do so was not as miniscule as he made it out to be.
High volume workouts brought muscle mass to nearly every trainee I have talked to.

The studies aren't the problem, your misinterpretation of them is. Example: "Weed Worsens Symptoms of Social Anxiety Disorder"
>CUD-SAD was related to greater impairment and psychiatric comorbidity than either disorder alone.
This isn't exactly a surprise, people who have a severe addiction and have social anxiety have worse impairment than people who have just one of those disorders.
In no way, shape or form does this prove that cannabis worsens symptoms of social anxiety disorder. Only that having both disorders at once is worse than having only one (no shit).
Another example...
>Although SAD is related to CUD, it has a stronger association with cannabis dependence than abuse.
Association isn't causation, it could easily be that people who have social anxiety turn to cannabis for relief.

>Nice >>>/r/eddit tier correlation causation memeing though
I don't smoke weed either, nice >>>/r/eddit tier ad hominem though

Cardio bores me so fucking much. There is absolutely no difficulty whatsoever in running for 15 minutes and I end wanting to kill myself due to how brainless it is. Just staring into the abyss and trying to make my mind think away from the supreme boredom that is automitizing my legs till I start to feel tired is enough to make me wonder how the fuck are people who run for hours on those treadmills not fucking insane.

How the fuck would there ever be a way to make cardio not the biggest bore in the world?

It is what it is. Just do it, there is no roundabout way to do cardio, it is boring and you have to think about your life and failures when running. Use the time to think and actually be with yourself don't numb yourself with music and try to escape boredom. I like to think about how shitty my life is and use it as fuel for my empty existence.

Dude your bodyweight doesn't count. You have to add external load to make the muscles grow...
>>
>>51261931
Your arm muscles don't know the difference between body weight and external weight. They just know that it's taking effort to do a push action. Obviously, over time your body weight won't be enough if your strength is great enough but for a beginner push ups build muscle just fine.

Bodyweight works, I did it for a year at home. But once you hit the gym you realize that weights are the real deal

How much cardio is optimal to lose fat, but the least amount of muscle?
>>
>>51259578
it is not accurate, you can recomp - lift hard, eat at maintenance (calculate it) and you'll gain muscle while you lose that fat for 4-12 months. at when your STRENGTH gains start to slow down really seriously, re-assess your bodyfat and potentially start bulking/cutting till you reach your goal body
>>
>>51263687
Cardio doesn't really kill gains, does it? I just do 30 minutes of MISS on rest days for stamina gains.
>>
>>51263687
If you want to lose fat but not muscle just tilt your macros more toward protein

*** Olympic Weightlifting General ***

Hey lads, didn't see a thread so I made one.
I'm very interested in starting olympic weightlifting into my routine (I come from powerlifting)
I started doing doing cleans/power cleans into my routine already and I quite enjoy the usage of full body and full body power into a movement. It's very addicting. I'm passed 1/2/3/4 so I have a good base of strength.
I was wondering how stupid it is to be self-taught olympic lifts?
I was thinking of just trying to clean and jerk and snatch at the end of my usual workouts and then eventually learning the form slowly through trial and error. I don't really have the excess funds for a coach (not sure if they are expensive). Is this dangerous at all?, or kinda OK to do?

Do gyms care if you have a buddy there teaching/coaching you? My cousin is a body builder and I'm sure is up for teaching my newbie ass proper form and lifts and basically show me the ropes. I really just want him to show me once or twice because I'm not about gym partners, I just wanna put on my music and zone out. I was wondering if cause he looks like a trainer (dude is real fucking swole) the gym would get pissy at us cause they don't like trainers giving lessons not through them. Anyone have any issues like this or should we be fine? For reference, the gym is LA Fitness.

Doubt they'd care, unless they're particularly faggoty over shilling their own PTs

just do it and see what happens

>>51263763
just say hes your cousin, not much they can do then, so long as you both pay membership

Every single man who lifts heavy will have back injuries in his life.

One theory says that we find symmetrical things more aesthetic because they're easier to process and recognize, see: www.cns.nyu.edu/~vessel/courses/NeuralAesthetics/Readings/10_Apr_5/reber-schwarz-winkielman-beauty-PSPR-2004.pdf.

Which lead me to think that the more intelligent you're, in addition to valuing the intellectual lifestyle and put it in priority in your search for partner (most of the time) you also far less affected by the way X look because at the core aesthetics is logic, the intelligent person is more capable at making logical connections/processing, thus find symmetry more easier in objects=need less "perfection" to find the thing aesthetic.

Going by this logic, every person vary in things he find beautiful, the intelligent person is more likely to find it in complex things like Math, and some kind of philosophy and art. To find beauty in math for example you should be able to understand it and it requires to be "intelligent" in a sense, that's why dumb people (not only but for this point) rarely find mathematical equations/proofs beautiful, they have hard time processing the "symmetry" of it(which is a subset of beauty).

Totally broscience but science doesn't really have anything on this subject so why not?

I'm glad you decided to leave Reddit, buddy. You're very amusing. You're wife is definitely ugly, definitely stinky, definitely not even smart lol, and she definitely isn't and wasn't modest.

When people refer to intelligent people, they mean to say like-minded people. Only big brain boys can discern intelligence amd nobody listens to them because people with a 30IQ gap between them can't even effectively communicate.
