Giving up video games, cooming and porn has changed my life far more than weightlifting just by itself. If you’re not progressing socially despite having a healthy/aesthetic body, good skin, etc. try dropping some bad habits and see how much you flourish.

Dopamine diet. Starve your brain of all your usual pleasures for one to two weeks, then introduce new rewards.

>>54615949
No, you should be at a 1000-1500 deficit. 500 is a waste of your time. Aim to lose 2 lbs per week minimum, not counting the first couple weeks of water weight loss which should be more.

Is power building the best?

>>54613628
The term implies serving two masters, which is nearly impossible. But trying to improve strength and hypertrophy simultaneously can be done, especially for new lifters

> heavy compounds with a progressive overload scheme (workout to workout, weekly increased, monthly increase, 5/3/1 periodization etc.) for strength
> high rep accessories for hypertrophy with whatever volume and frequency you can handle

I eat these…a lot. I eat other food too, but I almost always eat at least 3 of these a day. Is this unhealthy?

>>54615254
sodium, fat and carbs, more or less in that order. if you must eat that garbage, 1-2 cans of tuna in each one you shovel down your gob.
>>
>>54615202
It's loaded with carbs and not much else. Don't let the Boomer fags scare you about the sodium(it's always Boomers who are afraid of this)

Regardless not bad if you need the carbs but it wouldn't hurt if you put it on top of some meat like most japs.
>>
>>54615724
What? Redpill me on sodium then. You're telling me it isn't awful for you?
>>
>>54615880
I'll tell you but it's better for you to search on your own to make a judgement. Let's just say that high sodium isn't as big as a concern as we once thought. Low sodium is linked to high levels of LDL Cholestrol(the bad kind of cholestrol) and Triglycerides which cause heart disease which we all know is the numbet 1 killer in America. Yes too much sodium IS BAD and you should never exceed any mineral or vitamin as you will JUST your kidneys if you choose to but just bare in mind sodium is essential also in regulating your body's fluid balance.

Regardless again, search on your own and don't listen to dumbfuck boomers about who just listened to whatever the food industry told them 40 years ago.
>>
>>54616047
Furthermore if you're still concerned about sodium I suggest you breakdown what your daily intake of it is in your diet. Again, too much or too little is bad but also don't try stressing about it.

You need 45 to 100 EFFECTIVE reps per muscle group per week. You do the math. Usually less is more.

Uh-huh.
Yes, if you want to optimally train specific muscles, you will want to include isolation. Especially for stuff like rear delts, which get close to no work from basic compunds.

Just run Nippard's hypertrophy program, bro. Run it through once and then make adjustments based on your preferences and goals. He comes from powerlifting into pro bodybuilding, so you will probably like his stuff.

Have you seen what it's like out there, Murray? Do you ever actually leave the machines? Nobody's allowed to grunt or scream when they're lifting. Nobody's committed anymore. Nobody thinks about what it's like to make it. You think men like Thomas Gains, men on gear, think about what it's like to be natty like me? To be anybody but a chad? They don't. They think we'll all just sit there and ATG squat like good little goys. That we won't take four scoops and go wild.

concrete is 39 grams per cubic inch, that's 8 inch pvc and it looks about 16 inches long
so, we take pi and multiply by 8, then 16, then 0.039, and we get a weight of you're a fucking nigger go back to africa

That's funny, your math must be on point because that works out to EXACTLY 10kg if you multiply it by 2 because there's 2 cylinders

Will lots of dips and OHP give you comparably good chest development to someone who benches a lot even if you don't bench?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>54614600
yes but you'll be an upper chestlet
>>
>>54614600
You should do some sort of incline press too to complete the chest
>>
>>54614600
Dips, depending on your angle, are chest dominant and removes a lot of delt.

OHP is mostly delts and very little chest.

If you are doing bw dips, you’ll only get so big, but if you can add weight to them and not destroy your shoulders you should be good for chest, provided you are at a chest dominant angle and not tricep dominant.

Bench press is great though, you should do it if you can.

Btw, flat bench press will stimulate both the sternal and clavicular heads of the pecs. Mosts people will not be able to emphasize the uppet chest with incline bench because when you add incline, you take the load off the chest as a whole and put relatively more on the delts and are lifting less total weight as your delts are wesker than your chest.
>>
>>54615914
how to hit chest angle?
>>
>>54615951
https://exrx.net/WeightExercises/PectoralSternal/BWChestDip

A little bit forward lean. The more upright you are the more tricep will be involved.

Your pecs function is to pull the upper arm across the body towards the midline. Consider that when trying to do any chest exercise. Look at an iso chest exercise, the pec fly, which is purely just moving your arms across the body.

Something that helps me focus on my chest if I'm doing dips is to think about bending the bars/handle inward, not just try and push myself up and away from them.

Half of that data is irrelevant and the rest is only relevant for putting together your workout. Not for reviewing it. You should know all this before the week even began.
