    A while back when I was skinny AF, I was benching 95 lbs as my max yet this European man came up to me and ask me for a spot. He was built like a house and was (seated) shoulder pressing 185 lbs for...

    I definitely made that a habit. Used to get impingement often until I did this. Still get discomfort on occasion.

    I appreciate all the recs for warming up but I intend on sticking to decline and...

    YMMV I guess. Personally decline felt the safest on my shoulders though dips (which are seen as a sub) murders them. The main recent I decided to move to flat was due to Davis allowing it as a sub...

    Yeah I figured. I am concerned about progressing on decline since it's hard to unrack without a spotter- even harder when you have short arms and the pins do not adjust at my gym. I had the same...
  • Loss of practice with flat bench caused it to regress?

    I have sensitive shoulders to a point where the flat bench irritates my shoulder joint regardless if I press with proper form and keep my pulling volume ahead of my pressing volume. For the past...

    Fierce 5 has a Dumbbell version.

    Smith machines aren’t that great for developing movement patterns. Granted you can build muscle, though it’s more efficient to use dumbbells since they recruit...

    Recomp man. Unless you’re elite or advanced levels, it should be possible to put on muscle mass on maintainence calories or small deficit/surplus. It will be slower than bulking/cutting but you won’t...

    I mean it probably doesn’t matter too much if your exercise selection and rep ranges are consistent. Just the arrangement throughout the week is a bit off. If you train muscles 2x week then 3x a week...

    Am in Uni and was socially distant from people first 2 years there. Got social and made a fukton of friends last year and discovered that I am actually an extrovert. But then the pandemic happen and...

    In that case, I'd probably go with Viking's. The routine operates on a rep goal system where you do something like "get 25 reps within 3 sets" though you'll likely be working with the 6-10 rep ranges...

    Sets or reps? It would really help.

    If you rather do full body, do something like Fierce 5 or the Viking's Barebones. Alternatively, I'd recommend Westside for Skinny Bastards or Candito's Linear...

    Are you going to quit lifting weights after 4 weeks? If you wanna build and keep muscle, you have to be consistent; don’t do it for like a month and drop it.

    Pick a proven routine and disregard...

    1. Yes. 1800-2000 is probably closer to your maintanence unless you have abnormally slow metabolism/ sedentary outside the gym.

    2. Eat double that amount. 50-60 is enough for a normal person but...

    ^^ Since he mentioned Planet Fitness in his other thread, he’s limited to 60lbs or so dumbbells. Though light, it should suffice for the first few years of lifting. If he wants to get into it...

    You do realize your first thread is still active?

    Do you know how many calories you are taking in right now? Eat the same amount but make sure a good chunk comes from protein. Don't think too much...
