How do you even position the barbells for barbell flyes? I can bench 105kg but I tried positioning those barbells for a good 10 minutes and it didn't work at all. I couldn't just curl them up either because they would be imbalanced, I could only position one. Taking both barbells on my lap was really awkward and couldn't get them up properly.
tl;dr how to position the barbell for flies?
You need some kind of lubricant or really sweaty hands. Position like you're doing close-grip bench press, then, keeping your arms straight, spread them until you're in a wide-grip bench press position.. The bar will lower. Then reverse the movement, bringing your arms closer together and raising the bar. That's one rep if a barbell fly.
>confirmed for non lifter
pick up two dumbbells on a incline bench. do close grip and go with your hands to lower part of your chest and push the dumbbells together and upwards to above your face. get back to me when have actually been in the gym k?
The other day my skinnyfat buddy went all brofessional bodybuilder on me and told me about how hard work is all you need and how you can basically build limitless amounts of muscle if only you train hard and eat perfectly and what not, and then cited Schwarzenegger, telling me that back in his day they didn't have steroids yet, and how he's a perfect example of god tier work ethics and yadda yadda yadda.
Then when I told him that Schwarzenegger is totally open about having cycled through every drug imaginable, he said something to the effect to "Yeah but that was *back then*, you can't even compare the stuff they had back then to the stuff they use now, by today's standards he was all natural"
It's a shitty example of broscience but fuck I feel needed to get this story out here somehow.
this reminds me of something I heard at the gym last week.
two teenagers talking:
>yo did you see that guy? his arms were huge as fuck!
<yeah I did. I walked by him just now as he was preparing his post workout. It smelled just like MUTANT MASS
>woah. that smells fucking horrible. but it works. I'm not ready for that stuff though
for those that don't know mutant mass is just an expensive weight gainer with some whey, loads of carbs and a bit of fat and maybe creatine, can't really remember. I felt like educating the kids but then again, why bother..
by the way the guy they were mirin was pretty dyel by /fit/ standards. and fat.
Mutant mass™ is not for the weak brother. You should only use it if you are certain you want to leave humanity behind.
>It might feel like its hitting the centre but it isnt.
Do you realize how stupid this sounds? Also i dont give a fuck about evidence, if it hits my inner chest it fucking hits my inner chest no matter what your fat god rippletits says.
Im not talking about rippletits. There is no scientific evidence. You realise you are being a full on broscientist here?
Do you not understand the importance of scientific research and confirmation of results?
>by today's standards he was all natural
So everyone today is on massive doses of test and whatever else Arnold used? Jesus christ, are people actually this retarded?
kollegah reporting in
You are like a T-Rex,
big mouth but no biceps
>You realise you are being a full on broscientist here?
Yep, and i dont care. What matters is that it works no matter what the research says. If what you say is true the only thing you ever need to do is bench, squat and pull ups. That works the entire body so no need to do any sort of variations right?
what the fuck man, I can't believe you're falling for this retarded troll
Nope. There are other muscles that you can work and there are isolations to encourage growth in certain areas.
Thats not broscience.
What you are spouting is broscience.
>when i masturbate to black girl porn i experience greater gains than white girl porn.
>black girl porn must provide me with more gains
Correlation is not always causation. You ever take a stats or science class?
Im not denying its broscience but it doesnt matter. All im saying is try it before you start talking shit. A lot of good info on bodybuilding is pure broscience but that doesnt mean its complete bullshit. Are saying incline bench is pointless aswell?
Broscience is bullshit.
Doing an exercise to hit your "inner chest" is just doing another chest exercise. There is nothing wrong with working your chest more but if you think you are hitting the inner chest more than the outer you are wasting your time. Any gains or work done is for the whole chest.
Is that the hero of kvatch?
>1 hr of cardio daily is the only way to lose weight
>I dont worry about my weight because Im bigger and heavier than you, so Im stronger than you
>I dont lift weights ever. I dont want to get bloated and look like a man. I want to get toned.
But its not going to make you look manly at all. In fact, its going to be better for you than cardio.
>I tried it and I got buffed on my arms and shoulder so I quit.
>5 reps is the only way you can be healthy or have a good physic
>squats and deadlifts increase your test (as opposed to machines/isolation)
>fruits are bad for you because they're just carbs
i could go on
Well flat bench works triceps, so if you want triceps to continue to grow as well then yes, it would be enough.
People will agree and disagree. The fitness world is full of idiots and broscience because that shit sales. You do realise you can also buy all sorts of different protein powders that do the same shit?
Let me guess, you buy some kind of super protein for optimum protein synergy or some shit
>see that picture
>Look up dude wipes

just havin a giggle m8
the feeling of your inner chest is the stretch on your connective tissue though
and dont assume youre the only one that lifts just because somebody disagrees with you
its easy to dismiss different opinions with bad stereotypes
see you at the gym :)

God I hate working in an office with women
That's how your body breaks down food. You don't just absorb entire fucking proteins and incorporate them into your cells. You break the shit down to amino acids, then turn them into useful proteins via transcription/translation.
You WANT the protein to be denatured. That why cooked eggs have like twice the protein bioavailibility of raw eggs.
The acid breaks down the food to be digested, nothing is lost, the contents don't magically disappear, they are dissolved into the acid that goes through your digestive tract.
Its like putting meat in a stew, except that stew is made with acid.
I shit you not.
They do 5 sets of 3 reps with 20kg and go to the office and talk about their "gains".
Then they tell me that I'm training too hard doing LMAO 3PL8 Dead lifts (6x6) and how I'm lucky to have good genetics.
One of them is proud that she can't climb a rope and doesn't even try pushups "because I'm guarranteed to not lose size from my bewbs :3"
They all weigh <45kg and don't think they need to eat to make any gains.
Any time they ask me for advice on anything, they then try to refute it with broscience/babescience.
Oh and to top it off they call themselves "fitness fanatics"
The main role of the acid is to sterilize what you eat and prevent infections. enzymes do the work but the acid does trigger them. or at least thats what i remember from high school
I do a weight I'm comfortable with for reps, I'd rather do multiple reps with good form rather than too heavy and fuck up.
Also I have over under grip and need to swap over so my forearms don't go uneven
I saw someone here on /fit/ who thought 3x5 meant 5 sets of 3 reps. When they mentioned that they finally realized that that wasn't the case someone else was surprised because THEY thought the same until then. A third person mentioned that they had been doing 5 sets of 1 rep on deadlifts because they thought that was what 1x5 meant. Chuckles were had in that thread.
>breathe out on the way up when you're deadlifting, otherwise you might pass out before you reach the top
>try squatting with a plate hanging from a belt, it works your stabilisers better
>"How many racks does it have? I might train there over summer" no free weight racks, but it has a smith machine. the gym I go to is aimed at normal people looking to lose weight, not get buff. squat racks are for hardcore gyms
>Have you tried 5/3/1? It's great, I got my deadlift max from 80kg to 120kg doing it (20 y/o male)
>"Whats your programming?" I'm doing a program by (some random bodybuilder), it's all about focusing on different muscle fibers on different days so you can really get them strong (proceeds to squat 100kg 2 inches high for 3x8)
>Squatting three times a week is too much man, thats overtraining
>(over a year ago, 1 week into lifting) sets of 5 reps are aimed at powerlifters. plus, they take drugs. You should do sets of at least 10. Personally I do 15-20 for anything that uses legs. Legs are an endurance muscle so its more effective.
>"Hey bud, hows your progress on SS?" My squat stalled at 60kg (from just the bar, so at least he tried a bit), I think I'm gonna drop the weights stuff and focus on cardio to get toned for summer. (not gonna make it)
>I'm bulking on a low-fat diet to try and lose some belly fat while gaining muscle
>Grill: I'm avoiding carbs to get slimmer for my holiday. "How many calories are you eating?" I don't count calories, I'm just avoiding carbs because they are fattening.
>Same grill: You shouldn't drink so much whole milk, it has loads of lactose and fat. (on me drinking 1/2GOMAD)
>Other grill: I've started doing 100 squats every morning because I have a pancake bum (demonstates a couple squats, doesn't hit depth)
Only just realised how much broscience I've been exposed to, I guess I just blank it out in the moment.
this is somewhat accurate; essentially the only thing absorbed through the stomach is alcohol. Everything else is mediated by bile and enzymes to allow for absorption in the small intestine.
You could show that other girl a proper bodyweight squat progression, she might not listen but it sounds like she's at least trying. Tell her her ass will shrink if she does them wrong to get her to focus on form.
To clarify, he literally meant dangling a plate between legs while back squatting, not proper hip belt squats. It would be impossible to hit depth without the plate jamming up your ass crack.
And improve my housemates qt3.14 gf? no thanks, tfw no gf is strong enough already
>there's no point eating more than 30g of protein in one sitting, the rest is just wasted
Goin to the gym today is
Inner pecs day
Outer traps toning day
Upper hamstring day
Anterior flutes day
Activated almonds for post workout meal
Anybody wanna critique?
Also, you mirin '?
Interestingly enough, Arnold would have you believe you can shape a muscle.
However, you have come to /fit/ to spout your bullshit, the board where users have a slightly elevated knowledge of what is bullshit and what is not.
Bullshit. In, shall we say, "extreme" cases, fapping too much is bad for your dick. A while ago I was starting to get tiny sores, so I stopped fapping for a few days, and I was good to go after that. This is pretty much what no-fap is: letting your dick recover.
Taking it too far, and not fapping for a month because le reddit told you to is pretty retarded, though.
After my workout, I fucking deserve a snack, and a protein shake is the perfect thing. And getting home can sometimes take me half and hour or 45 minutes, depending on buses, so I don't want to wait that long to get my shake.
Hence, I take my protein to the gym.
Next you'll be getting pissy about people drinking water while working out.
Also, of course people are going to have a fucking leg day. Personally, I like full body workouts, because I think splits are retarded for most people. But some people have different goals than you, so they don't dedicate half of every goddamned workout to legs, and instead put the brunt of their legwork into certain days.
Explain what's wrong with this. Go ahead. I dare you./
People do splits when linear gains stop on certain programs. Again, different goals to you.
>"B-but mah funcshonal strength!"
Grow the fuck up. Not everybody is part of your sekret klub.
Because most people take a change of clothes you moron. And you can put a scoop into the bottom of your shaker. The whole thing literally takes up less space than a waterbottle.
You're clearly retarded, and not working hard enough, if you don't sweat enough to need a change of clothes after a gym session.
The vast majority of people have a bag at the gym. You're the exception. This isn't broscience. You're just retarded.
Oh? Because they have their protein with them? Even though several people have pointed out that it's simply just convenient?
Yeah, there are people who believe in it in some form or another. Yes, drinking protein is good for you in the hours after a session, but people take it too far.
No, that's not proof people believe that their muscles will disappear if they don't drink protein 30 mins after the gym.
I have a friend who is into "fitness". She's a cardiobunny, who claims she "lifts".
>She does bodyweight squats.
>She post all the "Yeah bro, she squats" shit.
>Thinks she can squat her bodyweight (as in, her bodyweight in a barbell squat) because she can do 200 squats without any weight.
>She thinks 20 kg deads are impressive (she thought I was a hero for doing 95 kg deads, though, which is nice)
>Her fucking enabler friends go on about how inspirational she is, which makes her think she can give advice on lifting and fitness
>Is trying every bullshit way to get abs, but knows nothing about calories
Fuck I'm mad. After my cut, I should figure out a way to make sure she sees my progress, and asks me for advice, because she seems like she actually wants to lift, but has no idea how to do it.
This happened the day before yesterday.
>Let's have pizza tonight
>We'll make it from scratch
>Alfredo, parm, mozz, pepperoni, chicken, bacon, onions & mushrooms
>We'll make up for it with a salad, smothered in ranch
Sounds good, but I'm trying to watch what I eat. I'll use some left over chicken breast and make a sandwich. We got any vinaigrette?
Well, pizza is pretty high in calories and so is ranch. I'm trying to eat at a deficit.
>It's all made with fresh ingredients. It's good calories. It's the chemicals in processed food that makes you fat. It's the industry. They inject food with fattening chemicals so then you'll buy their diet products. It's a vicious circle man. You're diet soda, for example?!
(At this point he's yelling at me. I drink 0-1 can of diet soda a day)
I've heard a lot of it is [calories in < calories out] and exercise, and I gotta say it's been working. Plus the sandwich and salad are still fresh ingredients like yours.
>Nah man, you just don't get it. You buy into the whole corporate bullshit, if you just eat fresh food, it doesn't matter how much, you'll drop a lot of weight. I did it, I lost 10 lbs.
That's awesome, if what I'm doing stops working, I'll give it a try.
>Yeah, we'll see you in 3 months 20 lbs heavier and then maybe you'll believe me
My father in law.
Yeah. I don't usually deny myself pizza or any other foods I like. I just have to plan around them.
The problem is, he asked if he could stay the night out of the blue, didn't show up till 3 am, and then asked us to go to the 24 store so we could make pizza from scratch.
He's kind of.... a pain. Afterward, I was too tired to care. I had work the next day.
Yeah, that about sums it up.
He ended up staying for two days.
Trashed our house and left us an eighth of bud.
Oh and he asked us to pay for his gas to fill up on the ride home. He lives about 4 hours away.
>mfw we were at the grocery store & gas station

I'm 90% sure I know the guy in this meme, went to basic training with him. Biggest piece of shit I have ever seen. Could not follow simple instructions, only thought about himself, and weak as fuck. Got kicked out a few months later because he failed a piss test.

you guys never actually listen to the other "bro", and just make his experiences out to be broscience because it isn't described in your precious studies (which were also just tested on only 20 dudes).
no science dude ever got big.
plenty of these "bullshit broscientists" who got big.
>You can't train your bicep and tricep on the same day because you'll explode.
It is enough core work though
I can guarantee that supporting 400 pounds on your back, or moving 400 pounds off the ground with your core engaged throughout the movement to support lower back stability is going to do a hell of a lot more for your core than your hanging leg raises and situps
Have you noticed that all people who are strongmen/powerlifters have huge cores? It's not just GH or being fat that does that. It's not situps either
>dry protein to the gym
if it's protein in a shaker then that's acceptable it's basically a glorified water bottle and once they take a shower then that's their workout from warmup to cleanup.
now people who bring the fucking CANISTER to the gym, lol that's some turbonerd shit
To be fair most exercise science studies are whack. They generally have terrible controls, bad premises, shit control of participant diet / recovery and no oversight of environmental factors. The only ones that are half-way decent are the ones about roids because they have to jump through a shitton of hoops to do roid studies in the USA.
>Have you noticed that all people who are strongmen/powerlifters have huge cores?
That's a nice euphemisn for "paunch".
Heavy squats and deadlifts result in anterior pelvic tilt. Add to that intra-abdominal pressure and HGH and you got your "weightlifter's gut".
