22 y/o, 21 years spent doing nothing but vidya and eating like a bird all of my life. somehow managed to end up with a gf that's way out of my league, got tired of people talking shit behind my back about how she could do better even though she doesn't give a shit and is perfectly fine with me being skinny, but it messes with me mentally. so i've decided to not be a skinny piece of shit anymore.
i'm 5'9/175cm, 56kg/120lbs
just had my first day of this version of SS:
Dips 2x5-8 (add weight after reaching 10 dips on both sets)
Pendlay row 3x5
Chinups 2x5-8 (add weight after hitting 10 bw chinup on both sets)
Daily accessory work:
3x5 45 degree decline weighted situps
3x8 weighted hyperextensions
These are my question:
1. What the fuck do I do if I can't even do 1 dip. I tried doing reversals but towards the end my atrophied muscles just gave out and i started gyrating wildly and almost broke the mirror behind me from my feet swinging into it. embarrassing but i'm still going back tomorrow
2. is 3k cal enough for me or should i eat more? dgaf about getting fat as long as i get strong
3. what is a good substitute for hyper extensions? my gym has no place to do them.
and here we come to the part where you guys are gonna have a good fuckin' chuckle; my stats from the first day:
Bench - 5kg
Squat - 10kg
Deadlift - 30kg
Dips - Not even on(c)e
understandably, this is a bit discouraging to me as i feel pretty subhuman when i'm huffing and puffing with my 2.5kg microplates on each side bench while everyone seems to be able to bench their own bodyweight at the very least.
i'm not going to give up. i'm going to go there everyday, even though i'm weak af and i'm going to get stronger. it's just that right now, where i am, is pretty bad. so i hope some other ex-auschwitz fags out there could drop some encouragement in here
