Sets of 3x8 or sets of 3x5 for the big lifts?
>>
>>29286865
depends on if your goals are strength or size

obv at the same weight 3x8 is preferable
>>
>>29286865
3x5 strength = size (IN THE LONG TERM)
>>
>>29286854

Get big
>>
>>29286891
then go ahead and drink a shake or two if you have them
>>
For compounds, are 3x5 sets at 5RM followed up with 3x10 at 60-70% 1RM a good idea for an Intermediate lifter? Hypertrophy+strength.
>>
>>29286888
this. 5s are better for long term progress which also translates into size eventually, especially when combined with higher rep assistance work. you simply won't make the same kind of consistent, long term progress with 3x8 on the main compound exercises. you can certainly try it for yourself, though.
>>
>>29286403
I have pretty weak wrists or rather inflexible wrists from severely fracturing them after a car crash.

I'm fine with Squats,Bench,Deads and OHP.. It's just Powercleans..

Am I simply doing them wrong if it's hurting my wrists? If not what are some other exercises to do instead of said cleans.
>>
>>29286906
impossible to answer. it has to be put in the context of a full routine. 5/3/1's "boring but big" template does something like that, but you only do each compound once a week.
>>
>>29286923

Workout A

Squat 3x5 + 3x10 @ 60-70 1RM
OHP 3x5 + 3x10 @ 60-70 1RM
Bench Press 4x8 @ 60-70% 1RM
BB Curl 4x8

Workout B

Chinups 5x5
RDL 4x6
Pendlay Row 4x8 @ 60-70 1RM
DB Row 4x8

Workout C

Bench Press 3x5 + 3x10 @ 60-70 1RM
Front Squat 4x8 @ 60-70% 1RM
OHP 4x8 @ 60-70% 1RM
Dips 4x8

Workout D

Deadlift 1x5
Pendlay Row 3x5 + 3x10 @ 60-70 1RM
Lat Pulldown 4x8
BB Curl 4x8

ABxCDxx

Size is a focus but I think I can gain some strength with this routine as well.

Follow up question:

Do you do warmup sets at lower weights such as 1 pl8 bench then do 185 and go straight into your actual sets at 2pl8 or do you just go straight into the 3x5?

Is doing a higher weight after your 3x5 for 2-3 reps worth it?

Going to start lifting to build muscle for endurance training (planning enlisting after highschool)

Going to go to the local Golds Gym, for obvious reasons, but here's my question. For an extra $20 a month, I can get a weekly session with a PT to monitor goals and adjust routine e or something. I pretty much know what im going to do (Stronglifts 5x5 6 months with cardio base, transfer to endurance bodyweight, running/rucking/marching with focused excercises after)

Being (fairly) confident in my timeline and goals, would it be a waste of money?

If I eat a calorie surplus but don't do enough reps for hypertrophy, what will happen? Will I just get fat?
>>
>>29290684
If you're lifting progressively heavier and reaching a minimum threshold of volume, then you will build muscle size.
You can get hypertrophy from just doing heavy singles. It's just not very effective, because it's hard to accumulate a lot of volume that way, and volume is the main driver for hypertrophy.

Tell me /fit/, is it like this at your gym?

Every time I get on a machine some person will get right next to me and just intermittently stare at me for however long I use it.

There are 8 machines of the same kind to the left and right of me that are free.

They always choose the one next to me, and stare.

Its fucking weird.

it's possible that it's a tear. Also likely is tightness in the bicep and form but it's pretty hard to diagnose. I think you should see a physio

>>29289274

>>
>>29291020

>>
>>29291039

try the 500 deficit, add 200 cals every major stall.
e.g. -500, -300, -100, +100, etc. You should hopefully drop down to 15% or so before you need to move onto a small surplus

>>29291052

probably because you are a) looking for daily changes, which won't happen, and b) so weak and poorly proprioceptive that you can't even make your arms do enough work to begin with
>>

as I thought
don't fret the armwork too much, you're too weak for it to make any visible difference. Start pushing around more weight through a novice program and add in two bicep assistance lifts per week rather than devote a shitload of time to it. You'll make better progress that way and actually have OK lifts

I've broken each of my arms approx. 2x each in different places.

well, it doesnt matter where I live, cause of good regulations regarding things like that.
