>>35499534 they have probably lifted longer than you and therefore need more volume to actually grow? come on now its not that hard to figure out. also 30 sec rest is retarded, but you probably only do machines right?
>>35499551 I actually do lift pretty heavy, though.
>>35499606 Only time I use machines is for shoulder exercises because I have a busted right shoulder. Other than that, strictly free weights. How is a 30 second to 1 minute rest time retarded? If I'm not tired, I move on to the next set/rep. I guess it seems retarded because I'm not on my phone taking pictures or updating my facebook status every time I put down a weight.
>>35499715 You might think you're lifting pretty heavy, but your attitude says otherwise. If you're lifting 80-90% of your max, you'd be out of it after each rep. 30s just isn't enough time if you're pushing yourself. What are your stats? What, are you at 1/2/3/4?
>>35499861 Flat BB bench - 285 for 4 reps, I've maxed at 305 once, though. Squat - 295 for 6 reps, 315 for 2-3 reps (parallel or below) Deadlift - 345 for 4 reps
I don't Clean and Press though.
I know my lifts aren't huge, but they're a lot more than what they were 8 months ago when I first started.
It may also have to do with the fact that I tend to work up to my max weights with each set. For example, I can max out at 285 flat bench. But my first rep will be 200, then my next will be 245, then the next will be 265, and my 4th and final rep will be the 285.
I do that for almost every set, except shoulder shrugs, weighted pull ups, reverse ez bar curls, and skull crushers where I do my max for every rep.
Also, when I max out, I tend to take a minute to switch sets, not 30 seconds.
>>35499883 Just saw your post, I don't OHP very much because I use machines for my shoulders. Like I said in my other post, my shoulders are pretty fucked because I had to have surgery on my right shoulder 2 years ago. I'm paranoid about overdoing it with my shoulders because that'd put me out of commission for a few months and I'd lose all my gains.
>>35499951 That's probably why you take hours to finish your gym regiment, anon. You're too busy recording things and taking pics for facebook. I literally said in my second post that I don't waste time taking pics and videos. I don't even see how those stats are even hard to believe since they're nothing to even write home about. I could see if I said I was benching 350 each rep and squatting 400lbs.
> im not saying youre estatting, in saying that there is something seriously wrong with your legs. Unless you are a totally incompetent bonehead, its probably because you have shit form that you never corrected because "hurr durr only fags make recordings to check their form".
Your high and mighty attitude is cute, but youre still a retard if you think you should never make any kind of records of your lifts to refer back to later.
For the short term, I would eat more, deload 10% on squat and really make sure you are nailing the form to fix your huge imbalance.
2 hous a week since university started I look the same and lift same numbers as when I used to lift 5 hours a week. apparently it doesn't matter if I do 15 sets total of 3 exercises or 6 sets total of 2 exercises and if I work chest and back seperately or not etc
>>35500025 >Unless you are a totally incompetent bonehead, its probably because you have shit form that you never corrected because "hurr durr only fags make recordings to check their form". Actually, no. I don't think recording things is retarded, I just don't think I need to do it because I have good form. I honestly don't lift heavy because fuck squats. I don't really like doing them like >>35500135 pointed out, so I'm not going to bother pushing myself to failure with it when I can focus that energy towards exercises I actually give a shit about.
>For the short term, I would eat more, deload 10% on squat and really make sure you are nailing the form to fix your huge imbalance. Don't really need your advice since I'm pretty good where I am. I'm definitely not going to eat more since I'm on a cut to prepare for summer (which is why my bench max has been suffering...caloric deficit and all). That's probably why you shouldn't just spout out random advice to someone who's goals you know nothing about. And ESPECIALLY if that other person (me) doesn't care about getting advice in the first place.
