Nice dude, not much of an accomplishment on my end but I am finally benching my own weight

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

That's good, man. Give yourself credit where credit is due. Set small goals.. Make your next goal 1.25 x your BW for bench press. Seek to break that goal and set a new one, it's very motivating.

There's a lot of people who can't even bench their own body weight in the world so good job on that. Keep it up and the results will keep coming. Rome wasn't built in a day anyways. Amirit?

I cut down to 168 and am only benching 255 for a 1RM which isn't much more than you if you look at it that way.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I've got a few questions, would really appreciate some answers.

What are some good ab/upper body workouts that don't involve any weights (besides crunches/push-ups >_>). I'm in between my mother and fathers houses, so I kind of lose any of the small progress I make at my Dads.

Also, what kind of weights should I be lifting? I've been told it's high reps/low weight for toning and low reps/high weight for building muscle, but I'm wondering exactly how many that is. I'm unsure about my exact height, it's around the 6'1 mark and I weight about 80kg (which I think is about 170 pounds). Can anyone tell me how much I should be lifting?

I feel ya' on that. My squat is so much lower than my deadlift it's actually ridiculous. I've always been a horrible squatter but I keep working at it and have been doing so for awhile now. Took me about three years of squatting two times a week to get the squat up that high.

275 isn't a lot by powerlifting means or the avid gym go-er, but it felt good to me.

I mean, when you can almost bench as much as you can squat despite squatting more times throughout a week than you bench then you know you have a problem. I don't know if it's my structure or what but I've gone to seminars to figure it out and have some elite powerlifters correct my squat form. They all have concluded that it's right and there's no glaring weaknesses. I just suck.

I've always had trouble squatting too, mainly because i'm a taller guy (6'4) and I have a compressed disc at L1 (happened in 2005). I worked my legs twice a week for a couple of months, squatting both workouts.

Right before leaving my old gym I did all three core lifts just to see what I could do. Not bad for only 4 solid years working out: 235 bench, 295 squat, 365 dead lift. Deads should have been more, but I was out of gas by then. Wanted 315 on squat, but when I tried it, I just slowly went down until the safety bar stopped me. Kinda embarrassing, but I don't care.

Edit: this is my new inspiration for working legs.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Sounds like a personal problem.

Don't gorge yourself with food before. Have a light snack like a power bar, nutrigrain bar, chewy bar, or another small snack that you kids eat nowadays. I always make sure to work out at least three hours after my breakfast or else I feel way too bloated. This is how I set my schedule up:

7:00 AM : Breakfast (egg whites, oats, apple)
8:30 AM : Pre workout shake (muscle milk)
9:00 AM : Pre workout supplements -- Green Bulge, Blue Gene, sometimes a Nitric Oxide when I have some leftover money.
10:00 AM : Workout 1
11:30 AM : Post workout shake + fast digesting carbs
12:30 PM : Lunch

I feel as if my deadlift should be way higher, but I can't get it above my squat. Squatting is a lot easier for me then deadlifting.

By the way I'm like 165-170lbs 6'0ish. I was at like 180 but I lost a lot of unwanted bodyfat and didn't lose strength during the cut, but I'm definitely looking on putting some weight on and hopefully some stength on this winter.
