What exercises give strongmen their guts? I know they have a higher bf percentage, but they also have thick muscular waists. Is it deadlifts? I want to do whatever it is.
Exercises focused on your core retard
>>49113563This, for most people it is squat and deadlift.Next time put stuff like this in a QTDDTOT thread.
>>49113545Strongmen do a lot of dynamic movements, picking up weirdly shaped heavy shit. I imagine that makes your core pretty strong
>>49113545this dude looks like he could wrestle a gorilla
>>49113598>Next time put stuff like this in a QTDDTOT thread.Yes we don't want people flooding the no-fap/orthorexia/lookism v.2 board with questions about weight lifting, take that shit to it's containment thread.
>>49113545Extremely jacked core plus high bf%. You can't do the lifts they do with a weak core.
>>49113619Well, at 6'1 and 330lbs he's about the size of an adult male gorilla. Of course, a gorilla would kill him in a fight but he's as close to a gorilla as a human can be.
>>49113835precisely because of that, he would probably get better advice in a QTDDTOT thread
>>49114079He probably wouldn't get any advice at all in a QTDDTOT thread.
>>49113545Strongmen have large waists because it gives them a big advantage. That's like asking if basketball makes people taller.
Be born with wide hips.
>>49113545>doesn’t know strongmen do roidsIt’s roidgut
>>49114432It's roids + fat + strong core, you coping shitfaggot.
>>49114564>doesn’t think strongmen are roiding, doing gh, and insulint. brainlet
>>49114583Of course they roid. They don't use Slin and HGH for the same reason powerlifters don't however. Seriously, educate yourself.
>>49113545SquatDeadliftFarmers walksyoke walksstones OHPLog PressPretty much every event in strongman hits core
>>49113545It's a combination of three factors>they are actually fat>strongman requires insane core strength, every exercise hits the core super hard>roid/hgh/insulin-gutStrongmen really don't look all that different from off-season bodybuilders, or from certain 120kg+ powerlifters.
>>49113545>wanting to look like an ogre troglodyte with 0 aestheticslmao
>>49114583>>49114594If I'm on insulin because of type 1 beetus can I fiddle with dosages for optimal gains? Should I ask my endocrinologist about pairing it with other hormones for a more complete cocktail?
>>49116693The insulin thing is stacked with HGH. Alone it serves virtually no purpose other than keeping your betus under control. Dont raise your doseage of insulin for "gainz". You will worsen your betus and lose all your gainz.
>>49116638Yes looking like a fag is way better
>>49117530>having thin waist and narrow hips>faggotkeep coping you child bearing-hipped miserable cuck
>>49117805real men look joocy, like in OP picfaggot soi betas like u want to look like little girlssuck my dick, you twink nigga!
>>49113545Consistent use of Valsalva manoeuvre.That's my excuse anyway
>>49118008having wide hips and "juicy" stomach is girly you absolute faggot, you just have trash genetics and are a fat slob so you want to pretend like it's the ideal look lmaoeveryone can develop overgrown core muscles like a retard, not everyone can be born with narrow (manly) hips, kys
>>49118087>t. angry twinkget on your knees, filthy dyel
>>49114485>I dont know the difference between aas and ped's let along their respective mechanism of action at a cellular levelDo you think strongmen take insulin or IGF-1 you fucking moron?Stop posting seriously your making yourself look dumb. Don't speak of hormones when you dont even know their function.
>>49113545what's in the tub?
>>49118646yeah because having a tight waist and narrow hips automatically means having no width in your hsoulders, no arms, no neck, no back etc? keep doing your retarded lifts that make your core grow, don't forget to drink some milk too so you can be bloated like a typical 'starting strength' troglodyte
>>49113598You are part of the problem
>>49116740Right... Hmmm how to convince my endocrinologist to prescribe a manlet in his mid 20s HGH to go along with his insulin. She's a nice lady but she doesn't come off as sympathetic to gainz pursuit
>>49113619Stop chimp-posting, Joe.
>>49113598>squats and diddly are enough to grow absI kinda wish it were true, but I kinda think it's bullshit.I think OHP are the only compound that really hit your abs, and even then you probably need something else.
>>49113545This is my goal body
>>49119354Can confirm. I'm currently working all three lifts into my program and even tho I'm just getting back into lifting I won't feel an ab soreness until I've added in planks and other accessories.
here's an approximation of where his waistline would be if not for the phat. He'd still have a large waist.look at someone like Klokov por ejemplo, thick waist, yet aesthetic. Something to aspire to if you inherently can't have a narrow waist.
>>49119399Ah yeah, here's some post about ithttps://www.quora.com/Do-compound-exercises-with-weights-target-the-absLooks like chin ups win again as one of the best exercise for general aesthetic.
If you guys want some brutal ab exercises try palloff press and front rack holds
>>49119753>front rack holdsIs it that thing where you lift the whole dumbell rack and hold it in front of you?
>>49119354>>49119407>>49119457Ask me why I know your squat and diddlies are weak
>>49120082I'm weak that's why I'm trying to develop my abs so I can safely lift more without breaking form you fucking mongoloid retard. Ask me how I know you're a larping DYEL
>>49120109If you don't break form once in a while you don't get strongman strong.
>>49120109>developing abs to improve squatWrong way round anon.>Ask me how I know you're a larping DYELooh, very originalMake sure you're using the valsalva manoeuvre properly. This is likely your problem.I can post progress on squat if you like, I went from sedentary skelly to 220kg squat in a year. But you can call me fat.
>>49119457>links to a quora post rather than a study with emg readings for compound movements and ab isolation exercisesYeah your a fucking retard>>49120082I'm neither of those idiots but if you want your abs to pop at a higher bodyfat % you still need to do core work along with the main lifts. I still do cable crunches and weighted leg raises along with deadlifting and squatting.

>>49120180>went from nothing to 220 kg in a yearWhy do you need to lie and stat pad anonymously? Who hurt you?
>>49120212My "nothing" was 70kg if that helps.When you do nothing but SS and TM for year you make some gains, it's my fault that everyone else wastes their time in the gym.
>>49113545Probably a combination of hgh and zero tva isolation.
>>49120212Ed cohen got I think a 500 lb squat in 6 months at least that's what he says.Then again hes one of the best powerlifters of all time.
>>49119399You don't need to feel soreness. Also brace your core with every lift.
>>49113545>>49120082>>49120180>>49120207Based retard strength poster
>>49121015This is actually my goal.>Stupid big and retard strongI'm only retard strong atm though
>>49120182>links to a quora post rather than a study with emg readingsThe post literally quotes studies with emg readings you fucking mongoloid.
Do I need steroids for a strongman physique like this? I'm 191 cm and due to bone structure, I'll never be a pretty boi, though I have a good huge frame for a man bear.Also what exercises to focus on? I'm at 1/2/3/4 after 7 months of lifting
>>49121270>I'm at 1/2/3/4 after 7 months of liftingBased.Strongmen get their distinctive physique from picking heavy shit up off the ground many times over.Atlas stones, kegs, sandbags, tires and so on
>>49121224Than post the studies not the fucking post you moron. That's why you cant cite message boards as credible source in uni and college, so dont think that shit will fly here either you fucking brainlet. Reread my post if your having trouble.
>>49121458>that zoomer freshman who reads a quora posts and then quotes the original paper instead in an attempt to appear sophisticatedtransparent as fuark
>>49113545reverse situps/ab raises by holding onto the bench and raising your legs over your head
>>49118985Enjoy your nonfunctional fag muscles sweet cheeks.
>>49113835This. How dare anyone ask fitness questions outside of a single thread on this board.
