    It's all show. Get off of tiktok if you want realistic expectations (and for your mental health overall).

    Even if they're not on gear, it's curated and hyper-tailored to look better than it is,...

    ^^ My general guideline is that if I see someone's catchy-looking face plastered onto the thumbnail, there's a good chance that there's some kind of monetary motivation for the channel at large....

    No, you'd have to regularly train in order to maintain whatever you've gained. It wouldn't take as much effort as getting there in the first place, but 60 pounds of a relatively high quality bulk...
  • You could theoretically get "powerlifting abs"...

    You could theoretically get "powerlifting abs" which are somewhat visible through even a moderately high amount of fat. I'm not disagreeing with the principle of being at a healthy level of bodyfat...

    @Savior. Your squat's way better than mine anyway, but my legs have been destroyed lately on previously submaximal work, so hopefully that bounces back quickly for us both.

    @Coach, nice! That has...

    Also, I would substitute "rewarding" for "enjoyable" since you really have to work through some unfun plateaus and while making progress is gratifying, I wouldn't really say it's fun in the moment....

    Maybe they'll get sick and then realize that they're the objects of a game and then decide they don't want to come back to Paul's house.

    Generally, I mean the bro talking point about squats and deadlifts for CNS adaptation positively affecting everything else, but AFAIK that's a contentious claim, so I didn't want to mention it by...

    Quick lunch session. Slowly but surely resisting the detraining on squats, and I was aiming for more than doubles with 3 plates, but it's the first time back in that territory for a while now....

    Good lifts.

    What's your rationale for doing deadlifts behind the back though?

    You need to get some plates if you want to make progress. I'd also buy a few dumbbells in the 20-40 lbs range for things like lateral raises and a few other isolation movements, plus a door-frame...

    That's a pretty good incline press!

    Without knowing other details about your programming, it's kind of a shot in the dark but I would tentatively think it could have to do with being bottlenecked...
  • Does anyone else occasionally crave marathon volume sessions?

    Okay, marathon is perhaps a bit exaggerated, but I mean like upwards of 35 relatively difficult working sets in a day.

    In my own miscellaneous training, I usually stay in the range of 5-20 sets...

    Well, I was pretty hungry when I wrote that so that might have influenced my fixation. :)

    I trained machines and some dumbbell freeweight exercises regularly and at a moderate level of seriousness for a few years before beginning to train routinely with barbell exercises. I had some...

    I don't see the deadlifting but I did see the 345 bench. Nice!
