Is it true you won't look any bigger if you only do 5 reps per set?

Could somebody really be deadlifting 4pl8 squatting 3pl8 and benchign 2.5pl8 and look ottermode?
>>
>>35503234
no
>>
if you are doing low reps in the range of 3 to around 7 you will be doing strength training where you will be getting stronger and be able to lift heavy, but if you want more mass (look bigger) you will need to lower the weight and do a rep range from around 10 - 16
>>
>>35503308
So it really is possible to be super strong and look DYEL?
>>
>>35503317
no again

strenght and size are not mutually exclusive
>>
>>35503317
of course it is, depending on your definition of DYEL. plenty of "unimpressive-looking" people with insane stats. just look at candito.
>>
>>35503317
You will gain size that's for sure just not as much mass as you would if you were on a bodybuilding program
>>
>>35503294

are you fucking retarded?

the answer is yes.
>>
>>35503317
yep, my advice lower the weight concentrate on form with higher reps, and make sure you hit your bulking macros if you want to get bigger
>>
Rep range doesn't matter for mass. It's all about volume. However it is much easier and reasonable to get high volume at 12 reps than 3 reps. Getting stronger will make you bigger obviously, but if you do exclusively strength training you will probably be small for your strength levels when compared to a bodybuilder and vice versa.

>>35503351
you've spent too much time on /fit/

>>35503351
Candito does look like he lifts, you just don't expect him to lift as much

Name someone super strong who looks like he doesn't lift.
>>
>>35503418

I just linked two. Alexander kang is dyel and benches 315 without a bench shirt.

you don't fucking lift.
>>
>>35503317

I mean not exactly DYEL, but nobody ever expects me to be as strong as I actually am. My body type is quite deceptive, as for a long time I exclusively trained for strength.

As of this moment I'm doing a lot of heavier reps with lower weight and in the past month I've noticed my fucking muscles explode with size.

I think there's truth to both sides, but you can't just get lift for strength and stay DYEL, nor can you focus on building muscle size and remain totally weak.

lol hey youre right dude.

youre just baiting me now.

outside of /owg/ and /plg/ /fit/ is just a bunch of pathetic curlbros. its sad. lmfao fuck off
>>
>>35503464
He does in the videos you linked, which are a better representation than a shitty image.
>>
I'm smaller skinnyfatter than OPs pic.
Bw 160lbs
Decline 245
Incline 205
Squat 295 Not ATG but well below parallel
DL I have no idea , I only lift from blocks because 100% of the time my back will round if I do it from the floor. I pull lmao6plate from blocks but it's leaps and bounds easier than an actual deadlift.
>>
>>35503385
thats fucking ridiculous

Keep posting shitty images.

here's a guy lifting much more than that and looking pretty twinky
>>
>>35503510
I've seen images of him shirtless, he looks like he lifts.
>>
>>35503529

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAZi2qtLMYE

the point is, besides his back and legs he is incredibly small (169 lb) 5'7 and squats 4x his bodyweight.

An average gym goer is bigger than him
>>
>>35503550
I know, but he definitely doesn't look dyel. Not even close.
>>
>>35503510
weighs 77kg squats 275kg
>>

kang is definitely dyel

>>35503576

bro his best back squat is 305kg.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmM-jR77SkY

heres him doing 280 like a walk in the park. He's older now.
>>
>>35503587
By your standars.
>>
Post guys who look like they lift, who can't lift shit
>>
>>35503550
Yeah but big biceps and pecs are fucking useless when it comes to actual strenght. Legs, back and press strenght are what make you strong, Lu is perfectly built for strenght. If you say someone is dyel because he doesn't have big arms or a gorilla chest you're fucking retarded.
>>
>>35503646
So you want pics of bodybuilders?
>>
>>35503677
xDDD
>>
>>35503677
Post videos of them struggling to lift something you'd deem easy for their size
>>
>>35503699
Kek. Post a vid of a bodybuilder doing proper atg front squats without the cheating grip. Heck, if you could find a guy doing highbar backsquats with proper form I'd be surprised.
>>
>>35503317
uhm yeah you can, friend of mine looks like complete dyel and the only thing he over does is lifting for strenght, dl 240kg benches 120kg and squat 190 or so dunno

What's up with asians staying DYEL mode while lifting heavy as fuck?

I saw a really skinny dude benching like 275lbs for reps. Not saying that it's an impressive weight, but for his bodyweight it looked hardcore. He didn't even look close to ottermode

Mfw I've been doing 5x5 for as long as I can remember
>>
>>35504694
I've been doing the same, and idk what to do now.
It sucks, cause I want strength really bad, but I also want to look as aesthetic as possible. I want to reach my limit in both strength and aesthetics, but to be honest if I at least have impressive stats, I would side more with aesthetics. Is this thread saying I can't have both?
