Meh. Get some pecs and shoulders going and then even if it still sticks out just as much, it won't seem like anything in proportion to rest of your frame.
Wow, man. I can hardly believe those are pics of the same body a mere 9 months apart. Amazing progress.
I see a very clear difference. You must have taken at least a few inches off your waist. Great job!
Oh, and 8 pounds in a month is too fast. You're gaining almost all fat at that rate. Slow it down. 1/2 lb to at the very most 1 lb a week.
You need to bulk and cut. I doubt it matters too much which you start with.
If it were me, I'd say bulk first. I think if you cut very much you'll just start feeling small / scrawny / weak. I'd...
Great job. You put on some fat, but you also put on some solid mass. I think if you cut for a few months to get reasonably lean again you'd be very pleased with the difference from before.
Heh. Yeah, I wasn't planning on making a special trip just for the bench. I had other business in Boise this coming week and figured I could take a look while I was there. But waiting till I had...
I was seriously thinking about jumping on it (cheap and flimsy or not) because I'm just so tired of not having a bench that even works properly with a rack. And I've been futilely watching CL for...
Also, what about that adjustable support system? Anyone have any input on it versus other designs? Sturdiness? Ease of adjustment?
I found that link, but it looks to be a slightly different bench, and it still doesn't help me too much in figuring out if the bench is any good or if this is a decent deal.
I guess I was hoping...
Looking at the pics, I think I can at least make out that it's LINEX, not "x-line." But I still can't really find any info on it.
I'm looking to buy a bench to use with my power rack. Currently I have a really flimsy Marcy bench with built-in stands that I can technically use. But the stands really get in the way and I need one...
Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Measly reps to all.
I dreamer bulked for 7 months and went from 149 lbs to 183 lbs. I had a few setbacks in that time, including my little brother killing himself, which caused my eating, sleeping and lifting to go to...
I think I may be most happy to see these guys no longer protruding out unnaturally like Michael Jackson's nose:
Yeah I do, and I have read about it. Slowly working on it. I plan to start running 3-4 times a week. Whenever I do my hip flexors get a good stretch so hopefully that helps.
Whatever it took...
Thanks for the input.
I started with allpro's routine, and then after maybe three weeks modified it into an upper/lower split, which I've been doing pretty much ever since.
Alright. I agree the difference in size is difficult to see because you mainly see a loss in definition. How about a couple in the same t-shirt so you can see size rather than definition.
Yep. Still pretty weak, but I'm adding to my lifts every week.
For reps I've gone:
Squat: 130 -> 230
Deadlift: 130 -> 285
Bench: 105 -> 160
Press: 70 -> 115
BB Rows: 100 -> 160
