Re: Weightlifting Thread

I'm 22. I go to the gym once a week(ish).

I have been lifting a few years so I'm quite big but nothing special.

Looks like you've got the same tattoo as Randy Orton on your left arm.

Yeah, I see what you mean. Did bench-press yesterday on free weight and it's more of a struggle since I've used the Smith machine for most of the past month but the posts here have made me realize that the results will be much better if you don't take shortcuts/the easy route. I'll get used to it eventually.

v @ pryme tyme: If you follow the conversation here, you'll see that I've come to the conclusion to make the switch from Smith to regular.

I might add a certain amount of squats as a daily thing if they're really important. Will also add deadlift as I haven't done much standing exercises with the barbell other than squats.

I like the tricep/bicep session too much so I think I'll keep on doing it. Other than losing majority of belly fat I had, the most progress I've noticed is with the arms so far. Biceps were nonexistent when I started, now it's around 11 inches.
Good way to fuck up your shoulder. The Smith machine only allows movement in a straight line, when benching you also need to move the bar slightly back and forward to take the pressure off of the joints in your shoulder (specifically the AC joint get's problematic with Smith bench). Even if you have to drop weight you should definitely switch to regular bench so you can activate the triceps more and keep the pressure off your shoulder joints.

Also if your just starting out (first 6 months), I would go with full body work outs to build a nice all around base for yourself. The bro splits and upper/lower splits will come in time but right now you should be hitting the compound movements. (bench, squat, overhead press, deadlift, pull ups, ect.)

Bonus because it rules: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_QnwAoesJvQ

^ Dave Tate's Bench Press Cure video. I watch it whenever my form feels off.

My squat sucks. I need to up the frequency, volume and grow my quads. My deadlift, bench, and especially military press are steadily rising but my squat has regressed and this displeases me. I may aim just to hit a 380 (did 390 second attempt last time) at the meet and save my juice for the other two lifts.

I was asked to spot a guy incline benching on the smith machine today. I did, and he still didn't do a full Rep.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Full reps are for sissies.

I heard Kai loves doing halfs on the smith machinezzz.


He was down on the floor with his lips to a glass
Said he dreamed of a future that won't come to pass
That he once strived to excel in a world so vast
But why run a race when it's rig and he's fixed in last
Then he mused all of life is a joke and he laughed
That it is what it is and he's thankful for all that he has
I said well let me just pose one question and ask
If you just want what you have, then why are are you sad

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I remember once this huge Polish guy asked me to spot him on the bench press, not sure how much he was pressing but it was a crap load. I suddenly thought this guy will kill me if I can't spot him (I said yes already without thinking), so I called my friend over and we literally took an end of the bar each and spotted him that way. Never again.
