>sexy legs edition

I'll be helping everyone as much as possible <3

>Recommended program for beginners: http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

>Recommended reads: Starting Strength 3rd Ed.; Practical Programming 3rd Ed.

>Basic rules-of-thumb:
4-6 reps for main barbell lifts
6-8 reps for ancillary barbell lifts
8-12 reps for assistance dumbbell/cable lifts

>Main barbell lifts
1-3 sets across for 100% rep-max and PR attempts
5 sets across at 80-90% rep-max for volume

>3 days per week:
full-body routines (AxBxAxx BxAxBxx or AxAxAxx)
>4 days per week:
Pull-push-legs + fullbody (PPLxFxx or LPPxFxx or FxPPLxx etc)
>5 days per week:
Pull-push-legs + upper-lower (PPLxULx or ULxPPLx etc)
>Routines with no deadlifts or Powerlifting programs:
upper-lower splits

Work every muscle group at least 2 times per week
Push = chest/front & lateral delts/triceps
Pull = back/biceps/rear delts
Legs = legs/posterior chain
>Just because an exercise involves pulling, doesn't mean it belongs on pull day. Divide it accordingly to the correct muscle group. For example, lateral raises belong on push day.

These are just basic rules-of-thumb!

Remember that you are supposed to have fun and enjoy doing your routine, so do the stuff that you enjoy doing!

Texas Method is only really useful for an intermediate lifter - aka someone who can't progress with SS anymore.

It's better to stick with SS for as long as you can, just add more upperbody accessory work after a while to increase the volume and build more muscle. But this is only really useful once you've been lifting for 3+ months. For the first couple of months, all you need to have maximum hypertrophy is the main program and a good diet. http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

And even then, you don't need many extra accessories added, just three or so per day to isolate specific muscle groups of the upperbody. The main compounds are still the best exercises to build muscle mass for a long time.

Hi trappy!

What ab exercises aren't a waste of time?

Should I start laterals from in front of my benis or from my hips?

Which cable row attachment isn't a meme?

I have lousy knees. Squatting below parallel is painful. How can I make leg presses effective, or what other leg stuff can I do?

Thanks!

Hey trappy.
Today a friend went to the gym with me, I, as a powerlifter, tried to explain him the main movements, he did the squats and bench very well, but HE CAN'T do a fucking deadlift, I tried everything to explain him but nothing worked, so, I think PL won't be for him, and he told that he wasn't that interested to compete, he just want to be "shreded"
BUT he can only go 3 days a week to the gym (because of school and work), what routine would you recommend for 3 days a week that doesn't have deadlifts.
>>
Sup guys

I've been lifting for about two weeks now

When I first signed up a few months ago, my trainer gave me a routine, which I did for about three weeks. /fit/ told me it was pretty terrible. I was in and out of the gym since then, but I've just started back up again.

I took the routine he gave me, took some things out, and added stuff in. I do this six times a week, ABCABCx.

A: Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
>Pull up
>Pec fly
>Chest press
>Bench
>OHP
>Dumbell shoulder press
>Tricep cable pulldown

B: Legs
>Squat
>Leg press
>Leg Curl
>Leg Extension
>Horizontal Calf
>Lunges

C: Biceps/Back
>Dumbell Row
>Upright Row
>Lat Pulldown
>Dumbell shrugs
>Barbell Curl
>Dumbell curl
>Reverse grip barbell curl

I'm trying to come up with an ab routine, and here's what I've been doing:
>Plank
>Leg Raises
>Russian Twist
>Hanging Leg Raises
>Weighted Sit Ups
>Reverse Crunch

How can I improve my routine?
>>

For the abs: Hanging Leg Raises, decline or cable crunches, dragonflags, landmine obliques twist, vacuum training, etc etc
You can add weight to most of these.

You can start lateral raises from wherever you like the most, really. If you feel an intense burn in your shoulders and get a pump, then it's working as intended. Some people will say you can target a certain part of the delts doing this or that, but the truth is, the movement is the same regardless (shoulder abduction) and will target the same parts that perform that movement just as much.
A cool thing you can do is do the first 8 reps normally, and then from the 9th to the 12th you actually wait around 10 seconds before the next rep. Holding the DBs as if you're doing a farmer's walk will make you feel a MASSIVE burn in your shoulders.
Make sure to progress in weights with the lateral raises. Some people stay with 10kg dumbbells forever, that's pretty pointless. You will notice your OHP gets much stronger and you lateral delts get visibly larger once you start raising 18kg DBs and up.

For the knees, you can squat at/above parallel. Rip does parallel in this vid, since he has fucked up knees https://vimeo.com/11913431
Rip also has a video on knee wraps for bad knees https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FonRc8ANxY

Another option is do split squats. The vertical shin angle makes it much lighter on the knee.
Box squats are also good for bad knees.

Cable row attachment? I guess the bar that lets you use a supine grip and the thingy that's for hammer grip.

>>35608870

If you've been lifting for reals for about a year, then maybe SS won't work well for you since you might not have more linear progression gains to make. Then Texas Method might be better for you (it's a template program, so you make your own routine with it).

You can do a single set with just the bar, but it's not very necessary.
Ramping sets are warmups of their own.
The difference between ramping sets and warmups is that you're not supposed to exhaust yourself with warmups. Ramping sets, on the other hand, are working sets and will tire you.

Love you too bby <3 ty

>>35609888

What's your bodyweight and your lift numbers?
How long have you been lifting?
What lifts are you stalling on?

First thing you need to do is have a floor pull on A. Rows aren't useful since you're already working your back with chinups, so move the rolls to B and take the pulldowns out.
Add 3x5 Light Deadlifts at 80-90% to A. This will help deadlift progression.
Do 3x5 Light Squats at 80-90% on B.
Add lateral raises to both days (very important for the OHP).
Add cable crossovers as well.
Add 1kg to the upperbody movements instead of 2kg.

Make sure you're pressing and benching correctly.
I highly recommend you OHP like Rip teaches here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnBmiBqp-AI
Make sure your bench bar path is correct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKhI-O4HI8M
And retract your scapulae for the bench.

Make sure you're holding your breath during the entire rep. Only exhale and inhale in between the reps.

Eat better and rest more.
If you're missing reps on the second and third sets, that means you need to rest a bit more between the sets. This is not an issue with strength, but endurance. As long as you reach the target reps on the first set, you are progressing.
To increase endurance, do a bit of cardio when you can too.

>>35609989

The deadlift is very important to build full-body strength and to strengthen the spinal erectors and protect the lumbar spine.
The problem is likely to be that your friend doesn't know how to hyperextend his lumbar spine. Get the SS book through a torrent (or better yet, buy it kek) and ctrl+F "back position" and find the bold title, and read the small section.

I NEVER leave home without tucking things neatly. That's pretty much what you need to learn to do.

>>35610318

Work your lowerbody and your butt. Here's a routine I've written for that, it might help.
Other than that, get to the optimal bodyfat range I guess.

Squats and deadlifts are NOT enough, don't fall for the meme kek.

>>35610321

Try the things I describe here >>35610311
If that still doesn't work, then time to do Texas Method (it's a template program, not a routine, so you're supposed to personalise it to your goals and objectives).

>>35610316

Looks good overall.
I recommend doing 3x5 for the bench and OHP, since that makes it easier to progress. Then you can add the DB bench to the OHP day, and the DB ohp to the bench day. That will increase the volume, work on your stabilizers, and help progression.
I also highly recommend lateral raises.

And remember you will eventually have to start adding 1kg to the bench and OHP instead of 2kg in order to keep progressing.

Hi bby~
Do you need a full routine or just some tips?

Well, since you're doing sprinting, it's pretty important to work on your lowerbody power. Power Cleans or Power Snatches at 3x3 are great options.

You can do 6 days per week if you eat well and don't overdo the days. For strength development it's not ideal, but if your goal is just aesthetics then it's just fine.

Separate things into a PPLPPLx scheme. Remember the deadlifts belong on L.
Try to have around 12-15 sets of volume per day, no need for more than that.

Here's a LIST of good exercises (not a routine), so you can make your own PPL routine.

Push
Flat/Incline Bench Press (DB and barbell)
OHP (DB and barbell)
Closegrip Bench Press
T-bar Press
Dips
Lateral Raises
Cable Crossovers
Low Cable Flys
Skullcrushers
Rope Pulldowns
Triceps Kickbacks

Pull
Barbell Row
T-bar Row
Cable Row
Kneeling One-arm Row
Kroc Rows
Chinups (bodyweight or weighted)
Closegrip Pullups (same)
Lat Pulldowns (closegrip or chinup grip)
DB Supinating Curls
Incline Hammer Curls
Barbell Curls (go heavy and cheat a bit)
Rear Delts Flys
Facepulls

Legs
Back Squat
Front Squat
Power Clean/Power Snatch
Deadlift
Hip Thrusts
Pistol/Tuck/or Split Squats
Sitting/Standing Calf Raises
Abs exercises

>>35610061

If you just wanna look good, then it's fine.
If you wanna look good AND be strong, do http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

As for the routine, the exercises are fine. Just remove leg extensions and upright rows because they are bad for knee and shoulder health. Add deadlifts to leg day, and do the bench and OHP as the first exercise on A.

>>35610234

If you wanna build muscle, then no. You need to work every muscle group 2-3 times per week.

Hey guys, I've been lifting for 6 months so far and just changed my routine from 5/3/1 to Strongman 5x5.

>>35610383

Do the program described here http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

Add Dips or Closegrip Bench at 6-8 reps (add weight when you reach 9 reps) to A
Add DB Supinating Curls and Cable Crossovers to A 8-12 reps
Add Lateral Raises to B 8-12 reps
If you don't wanna power clean for whatever reason (do your power cleans), then do Light Deadlifts 3x5 at 80-90% instead.

The first set is the one that matters for progression. You don't miss the second and third sets because of strength, you miss them because of endurance. Try to rest longer between the sets (4-5 min), drink plenty of water during the workout, get more rest and sleep during the day, and eat more kek.
Keep increasing the weights until you get stuck at 3 reps.
Remember the OHP and the Bench will require 1kg increments after a while to keep progressing.

>>35610463

It's better to get a 4-5 day split than to do a 3-day program and randomly do exercises on off-days, since that won't be optimal and might affect recovery if you don't do it correctly.

The primary movers on the deadlift are the hip extensors (hamstrings and glutes for the most part). The back does a lot of work (mainly because of the very heavy weights) but not as much as the primary movers, and the back doesn't actually pull anything - it just stabilizes and holds the weight, and transfers the forces between the bar and the hips.

The quads also perform the initial knee extension.

The deadlift, and the so-called "floor pulls", are more of a hip hinge movement, not a "pull".

>>35610638

No you don't. You extend the hips and the weight moves upwards with the hip movement. It's a hip hinge with an initial quad push. You pull weights with rows and pullups.

brehs I did a month of stronglifts in november after a cute anime girl explained to me that I should just get on SS so I did.

If I stop half-assing SS will I get my progress back? I haven't been eating enough but I've been slowly working up to it, only need to adjust to 600 cal more which I can manage soon. I also haven't been doing cleans...at all. I've attempted to but I've had difficulty with the racking position, am I supposed to stick out my chest? I think I'm just going to shell out the $60 for a PT to teach me even though money is tight cause I really need to learn how to clean.

Anyway, how long should I stay on SS? How much does my progress need to slow? Should I start adding accessories now to strengthen my BP and OHP since they feel super weak? How many accessories can I add to the end of my workout? One night I tried tacking on 3 and my workout took fucking forever.

also my weight is probably inaccurate in the image since I don't weigh myself that often so that was my weight 2 weeks ago

You are not running ICF5x5, you are doing SL5x5. It's a solid 3 day a week full body program. If you decide to do all the extra bodybuilding work in ICF, you might want to do the "cutting" (3x5) version first as it has a ton more volume than most other novice programs.

It's alright but you want to be matching push and pull exercises. Find some progressions online so you can keep challenging yourself with harder exercise variations.

example routine (fullbody)
Squats
Pushups/Dips (alternating)
Rows
Handstand push ups (look up a progression)
Chinups
Abs/core

As another anon said going to the gym is probably better in the long run.

>>35611307

The MOST important thing for progression is to eat and sleep. Without doing those two things well, your workouts will suffer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83nEQAO_U9k

Besides that, there are also a few other things you can do to help progress on the upperbody lifts:
- Do them first before the squats
- Add 1kg instead of 2kg when you find it necessary (it's gonna be impossible to keep adding 2kg for very long, one of the reasons why SL is so bad)
- Make sure your form is on point.

For the OHP, do it like Rip teaches: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnBmiBqp-AI

For the bench, make sure your bar path is perfected: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKhI-O4HI8M
And make sure your form is good as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYKScL2sgCs

You should stick with SS for around 6+ months. Plug your numbers on symmetricstrength.com - most people switch from SS when they reach an overall score of around 70-75

For the power clean racking position, you have to work on it separately.
First thing to do is stretches. Stretch your triceps and do this wrist work here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ig8eZXfJiaY

Now put the bar on the squat rack, put a bit of weight on it if necessary,and keep trying to find a good racking position for you.
You want a few things:
Raise the elbows, so that your front delts contract and the bar is able to rest on them.
The weight of the bar is not in the hands.
You can hold the bar with just the fingertips, since it's the shoulders who are supposed to actually hold the bar - the hands are just there to keep it in place.
The bar is supposed to be in line with the clavicles, straight above it. However, it's not supposed to touch it - if you raise your elbows correctly, your front delts will contract and raise the bar from your clavicle.

You will get used to it.

Watch this vid with Rip teaching how to power clean (skip the first 7 minutes since it's just unrelated banter) https://youtu.be/wIB_X2N6020?t=7m7s

What do you think of this routine for building strength?

Basically I have a full body workout day which is like this:

A:

Squat 3x5
Bench 3x5
Deadlift 1x5

And then I have other days which are as follows:

B:

OHP 3x5
Squat 3x5
Pendlay Row 3x5

C:

Pendlay Row 3x5
OHP 3x5
Deadlift 1x5

D:

Bench 3x5
OHP 3x5
Pendlay Row 3x5

The routine goes like this with x being rest days:

AxBxAxCxAxDx

and then repeats itself, allowing me to practise the three powerlifting exercises equally whilst still giving myself a break and getting OHP and rows done. If I feel tired I'll take two rest days every so often. Did I do good, am I in proportion or am I skipping legs too much? I'm going to do the AMRAP last set thing from Greyskull LP whenever I deload too, although I know you're not a fan of deloading in general. I was previously doing SL3x5 but it was neglecting my chest too much in favour of lats.

No.
GSLP is only useful after you've been doing at least one month of SS. If you start with it, your deadlift is gonna be weak for a looooong time since you are only deadlifting once per week (you deadlift thrice per week on SS)
http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

Also, GSLP is shit when it comes to deloading. You should not follow its instructions on when to deload. Do what Rip teaches, even if you're doing GSLP.

Also, at the beginning, you should add way more weight to the bar than what that image tells you to. Read this picture related so that you get an idea of how progression works.

>>35610909

Chest shoulder traps and thighs (and butt <3). I don't care much about arms or abs. I mean, they are cool, but not the hottest.

>>35610679

90% of the routines have deadlifts and squats on the same day.
PPLPPLx progression is horrible, so while you should still try to progress, it's gonna be really slow and is not the main point of the routine.

If you wanna get strong besides look good, PPLPPLx is not the way to go.

>>35611151

Took a quick look at it, I don't think it's good. Too many useless stuff, some bad stuff (upright row)

Bodybuilding routines should only be your concern if you are on roids.
For a natty lifter, the best way to grow muscle is to focus on the main lifts with a few accessories for the upperbody.

In my opinion, the best program to build mass and get strong at the same time for intermediate lifters is the Texas Method
Here's an early-intermediate-level 4-day split

A
Bench 3x5 +1kg
OHP 5x5 90%
Lateral Raise #

Yes. Your Deadlift is supposed to be 1000% stronger than your RDL/SLDL.
RDL/SLDL are only useful as lighter versions of the DL to be used once per week, to help progress on the DL while still allowing for recovery.

You are not supposed to only do them. DL is a much more important and complete exercise, and will grow a lot more muscle and make you infinitely stronger.

The RDL is a DL that doesn't lower to the ground. So if you lower it to the ground, it's a DL - as long as you don't bounce it off the ground (the DL starts from a dead stop). If you bounce it off the ground it's a touch-and-go DL, which is a variation but shouldn't be used as the main movement.

>>35610641

Aw <3 thanks bby

>>35611179

Do this instead http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program
It's much better.
And stick to training 3 days per week. If you wanna do extra stuff, you can do cardio and work on your abs on the off-days.

>>35611398

Depends on the cut, but TM is a very intense program with lots of volume, even if you don't do any accessory work.

However, you should be able to do it if you half the amount of weight you increase on the intensity day - and if you're not cutting too heavily.

>>35611582

Here's my suggestion:

A
Squat 3x5
Bench 3x5 / OHP 3x5
Deadlift 1x5

B
Squat 3x5
OHP 3x5 / Bench 3x5
Barbell Row 3x5 or Chinups 3xf (or weighted 3x5)
Light Deadlift 3x5 80-90%

C
Bench 3x5 / OHP 3x5
Deadlift 1x5
Barbell Row 3x5 or Chinups 3xf (or weighted 3x5)
OHP 3x5 80-90% / Bench 3x5 80-90%

You can do AMRAP sets, just don't deload when you fail the last set. You don't fail the second and third set because of strength, you fail because of endurance - and what matters for the progression is the strength. So only deload if you have been failing the first set consistently for a week or two.
To improve the second and final set, try to rest a bit more between the sets (4-5min). Remember to eat well and rest/sleep as much as possible.

>>35610641
>No one doing a PPLPPLx should worry about strength anyways, since you will progress at the pace of a turtle.

>>35611662
>PPLPPLx progression is horrible, so while you should still try to progress, it's gonna be really slow and is not the main point of the routine.

PPL is just a way to split up the excercises, it's not a singular program. This is like saying that upper/lower progress is slow because you can do 5/3/1 as an upper/lower.

>>35611582
Doing AxCxA you will deadlift 3 times in 5 days. Doing SS style progression probably won't work unless you're really new.

The thing is that most PPLPPLx have too much volume per workout and not enough rest, and without rest = without strength progression.

PPLPPLx programs are pretty much 100% bodybuilding programs, anyone expecting to get strong on them are wasting their time and should switch to PPLxULx or PPLxFullbodyxx

This is horrible advice. What matters for progression is what you do in training and eeking out a few kgs more progression to the cost of missed reps and less work being done in a workout is extremely short-sighted. Provided the guy rests enough between sets he should either try the weight again next workout or deload when he misses reps.

"Getting stuck means missing any of the reps of the prescribed work sets, since the weight cannot be increased until all of the reps have been done as prescribed. It is easier to not get stuck than it is to get unstuck."
^^From the fat guy himself.

>>35611811
>Would that be such a bad thing if I'm only doing 5 reps?
The frequency or volume isn't a problem, it's rather that doing deadlifts that often requires some thought in programming. Constantly increasing weights and doing near maximal effort sets that often in the deadlift isn't sustainable after you're past the initial beginner stage.
>>
Hi trappy I'm trying to follow your accessories tips to improve my upper body lifts, but what should I do if my chinups are horrible? I can barely do a single one, and can only just squeeze a set of 5 with 20kg assist. I'm 75kg/6ft.

You are leaving out the most important part of the quote.

No one misses the second and third sets reps consistently if they are eating enough, sleeping enough, resting enough between the sets and drinking enough water through the workout.
That's why I say to not deload when missing reps on those sets - because often the problem is NOT the weight or strength, but the things mentioned above.

Also, notice how Rip gives the same advise and doesn't tell you to deload if you fail reps on the final sets.

Lat pulldowns with a chinup grip are completely fine and will build you enough strength to be able to do bodyweight chinups.

>>35611913
>>35612006

Yes, it's completely fine. I don't think I've ever criticised the frequency of ohp/bench on SL since it's the same in SS and I recommend SS more than think about sucking cocks during the day.

kek

You can tailor the routine I posted to how you think works best for you, of course.
Removing the rows on C would actually be a good idea, and maybe even increasing the 80-90% work to 5x5 for extra volume.

Sweet should I go 3x5 for the lat pulldown?

And do I keep the lateral raises on bench day and closegrip bench for the other workout (A with press) or just eliminate one of these accessories and focus entirely on the main lifts.

I know that Trappy recommends pulldowns w/ chin-up grip, but I would personally recommend chin-up negatives if you can't do 10 chin-ups; as in, do AMRAP w/ chin-ups, then fill the 10 - AMRAP w/ negatives. Getting the motion down for a chin-up helped me a ton more than being able to do 110lb @ 4x8 on the pulldown machine.

A lat pulldown will not give you strength to do a pull up.

there is no 1:1 carryover, but it's big enough to do it if you can't do a single pullup.

B:

3x5 Squat
3x5 Bench
3x5 Row/OHP

C:

3x5 Row/OHP
3x5 Bench
3x5 Deadlift

why not simply alternate squats with deads (and increase the dead volume slightly, 1x5 is pretty shit), bench on A and C (always 2 per week but more rest between sessions) and alternate rows with ohp like you do now (always placing ohp after bench when they end up on the same day) ?

Your quad vs posterior volume will result in some imbalance. Personally I'd throw away all the leg 'accessories', throw all the arm work into that day and do the B day first. Also, cycle intensity/volume throughout the week for each lift(heavy 3x5 once, lighter 5x8 once).

Machines will probably give the same results. I think the visual results would probably be pretty similar but the strength results higher with the deadlift. I think the main difference would be the deadlift is 1 lift and not 3 machines so would be quicker.

Lifting for some years, on and off, sometimes not seriously

170 pounds, 9.5% bf, 5'7

LB squats: 300x5
OHP: 165x5

6 months x 4 weeks x 3 squat workouts per week = 72 increments

72 increments x 2.5kg = 180kg

Even assuming you deloaded a few times, you should still be squatting over 100kg, even doing terribly bad on it.

Barbell Curls 3x6-8 (go heavy and cheat a bit)
Incline Hammer Curls 3x8-12
Lateral Raises 3x8-12
Skullcrushers 3x8-12

This might work well, since the light day allows for extra recovery. I kept the lower days at very low volume because as a beginner, all you need for lowerbody is the main compounds, and having low volume there also helps recovery from the upper days.

>>35612235

You need higher OHP frequency.
Here's another suggestion, see if you like it:

A
Squat 3x5
OHP 3x5
Deadlift 1x5

B
Squat 3x5
Bench 3x5
Row 3x5

C
Bench 3x5
Deadlift 1x5
OHP 5x5 at 90%

The row frequency is low, but your back gets plenty of work from all the heavy deadlifts.
In case you want higher rowing frequency and have the time, you can try adding 1-3x5 Rows to C. But I do recommend keeping the 5x5 OHP since it helps progressing on what is a hard lift to progress.

>But I feel like I should be working every body parts 3 times a week, especially considering I'm enhanced

Actually, it's the opposite. When you're on gear, your muscles can keep growing for up to a whole week - while for natties the cycle only lasts about 48 hours.
That's why brosplits are popular among enhanced lifters.

So don't worry too much, like the other guy said :P

>>35612879

Didn't actually know the exercise, looks pretty cool, though the range of motion seems a bit short. I'll try myself and see how it goes.

>>35612328

ABxABxx? Looks perfectly fine if so.
If AxBxAxx, then it's not enough and you should stick to fullbody or at least upper-lower-fullbody.
It might be hard to progress on both the OHP and the bench on every workout, so here's something you can try in case you feel that's the case for you:

B1
Bench 3x5 PR
OHP 5x5 at 90%

B2
Bench 1x5 PR
OHP 1x5 PR
or
OHP 1x5 PR
Bench 3x5 PR
or
OHP 3x5 PR
Bench 5x5 at 90%

>>35612834

How many days per week?

>>35612852

Linear progression hasn't stopped, you are just not eating enough.
As soon as you start eating well, your numbers will shoot up and you will build a lot more muscle mass.
Changing routines won't give you different results if you don't change your diet.

That looks just about perfect, thanks so much for your services to the board! Would it matter if I did bench before squat on the B day and deadlifted after OHP on C? I can't imagine arm exercises affecting my legs later on but squatting heavy can feel detrimental to my later performance sometimes. Either way not a big deal though, I'm very happy with my new routine. How do you know so much about routines if you don't mind me asking?

Put your numbers on symmetricstrength.com
Linear progression usually stops at around 68-72 overall score, but this obviously depends on the person.

Reach your ideal weight first, think about switching routines later. You are stalling because you're not eating, not because of the program. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83nEQAO_U9k

Not exactly, but for the most part.
The main difference is that GSLP has the last set be AMRAP, and SS has higher Squat and Deadlift frequency.

The GSLP book actually provides a few "plug-ins" that you can add to the program (the main program is just bench/ohp + squat/deadlift), while SS already has extra stuff included in the main program (chinups and power cleans)

(talking about the original GSLP here)

>>35616881

Yes, candito's programs are very good, and not over-the-top crazy like some other specific powerlifting programs out there.

>>35615562

It's not about "focusing on main/ancillary lifts", just train regularly, eat well, and let bodyhair grow a bit.

>>35615624

For traps you can do barbell shrugs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0t_hCzUgvM

>>35616950

Looks good.
Move X1 and X2 to the main B and A days (respectively). Doing it on off-days isn't a good idea since your muscles need rest time to properly grow and get strong.

Doing cardio and abs on off-days is fine.

Jesus so much ignorance in a single post...
I'll try to explain though.

1) It doesn't matter what kind exercises you are going to use, because you can develop every muscle using isolation exercises only. Your body is going to suck dick won't be very functional, but it is possible.

2) the kind of look you desire so much is a matter of body hair and slightly higher body fat level, both of which are unrelated to the exercises you decide to use.

3)PPL is just one way of distributing volume during the week (excessive in my opinion, but some people just like to visit gym often), and as such is just a preference, without any special advantages or disadvantages. It's as 'regular' as any other kind of routine. Well, maybe except a low frequency brosplit, but that's not a real routine.

Não posto em nenhuma board ou fórum br, então você muito provavelmente não me conhece kkkk

For the shoulders, fixing posture is much more about what you do during the day than what you do at the gym. If you keep using the computer with a hunched back for most of the day, your posture isn't gonna improve.

Stretch your chest multiple times per day (except at the gym) and try to pay attention to your posture and your scapulae during the day. Doing a bit of shoulder mobility and stretches might also help.

With that said, here are a few things you can do at the gym:
- facepulls and rear delt flys
- more horizontal pulls (barbell/cable rows) in the routine
- keep the scapulae retracted during the bench press
- rotator cuff exercises

Here's a good stretch for the pecs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SV7l1sfEmO0

Hope this helps~

>>35617440

I don't use industrial tape keke
I just carry a few sticking plasters in my purse in case it's needed.

>>35617537

Strength training will build you just as much muscle. And for aesthetics all you have to do is add accessory exercises for the specific upperbody parts that are important for an aesthetic look (lateral delts, chest, biceps, lats, etc)

You should do SS for a few months to get those numbers up, then you can do an intermediate routine with a good amount of accessories.
Example:
>ABxCDxx
A
Bench 3x5 +1kg
OHP 5x5 90%
Lateral Raises 3x8-12
Skullcrushers 3x8-12
Cable Crossovers 3x8-12

B
Weighted Chinups 3x5 +1kg
Barbell Rows 5x5 80-90%
DB Supinating Curls 3x8-12
Incline Hammer Curls 3x8-12
Facepulls 3x8-12

C
Squats 3x5 +2kg
Deadlift 3x5 at 80-90% or Power Cleans 5x3 ramping (50-62.5-75-87.5-100% +1kg)
Hip Thrusts 3x6-8 (add weight when you reach 8 reps)
Hanging Leg Raises 3x8-12

D
OHP 1x5 +1kg
Deadlift 1x5 +2kg
Barbell Row 1x5 +1kg
Squats 3x5 80-90%
Bench 3x5 80-90%

Training is about causing stress to your body, and that in turn causes adaptation (muscle growth and strength development).
Your body will eventually adapt to a certain level of stress, so it's important to always keep increasing the stress OR varying the TYPE of stress.
This is why volume day and intensity day are a big thing on intermediate lifters' routines.

Anyway, when you do a "slow deadlift set", you ARE causing stress to your body. And it's likely a high level of stress since you are using heavier weights than you were using before. This WILL drive progression and make you stronger (and grow muscle mass of course). So unless you are looking to impress someone, you shouldn't worry too much about it.

Remember, what matters is causing enough stress to your body so that you force it to adapt. Whether is volume, intensity, fast, slow... the type of stress doesn't matter much - and is in fact a good thing to vary it.

So in the end, there's nothing wrong with doing a slow deadlift set and it will drive progress.

However, as I said, varying the type of stress is important for intermediate lifters. So I do recommend you also include fast deadlift sets during your week, even if at lower weights, and keep doing the slow sets on another day. This will drive further progress.

I don't have much experience when it comes to callisthenics bby ): wish I could help but I'm a noob on it.

I do know a few good exercises though. Pistol/tuck squats are great for the legs, glute/ham raises and the quadruped hip extensions are great for the glutes, pullups/chinups are great for the back and arms, handstand pushup, pushup variations, and dips are great for the shoulders, triceps and chest, and hanging leg raise/dragonflag/supermas are great for the abs and the core strength.

I'm not an expert when it comes to building a callisthenics program, but you could do a 3-day per week fullbody routine (3xF) including those exercises, or a 4-day upper/lower split

Either both or just hyperthrophy, depending on how you manage your weights, sets and reps.

>>35621321
Why a whole week of accesories? Do you lift heavy? Or is it both powerlifting + gymnastcs too demanding for the CNS?
>>
>>35621741
increase reps the lower the weight.
>>
>>35621768
Depends on how many reps, and how much weight you start in.
Say I start with 90% 1RM for max reps and start decreasing weight and increasing up to 6~8 reps, you'll gain both, but if you start around 75% 1RM for max reps you'll only work on hyperthrophy.

i feel like it should be SS then SL. SL builds muscle mass better if you have a strength base. if you've been doing SL and its been working keep doing it until it doesn't'. Remember everything works, but nothing works forever.

>>35612834
The thing that you need to take into account here is: Sprinting can definitely be improved by stronger legs and more explosive movements, and you can improve those in the weightroom. However, to get good at sprinting, you have to sprint, and to get really good, you have to improve different aspects of sprinting. SAID (Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand) is a principle that benefits you for all activities: if you do weights, you'll get better at the weights, not necessarily all that much better at the sprints.

Gotta get in your sprint work too, and early on, doing both may be too much volume for you, especially when you start off and are at higher risk of shin/ankle/foot issues. Get your sprinting in, and then consider weights as additional work.

Yo anons.

I was doing SL for a month or so but fell off. Tonight I'm starting back and really want to make it brahs. I could've been shredded for vacation last year but instead I spent the whole week in my room missing my ex. I refuse to do that again this year. Since the rec. is SS I'll do that, but would it be okay to do that with the SL weight progression? I appreciated the simplicity of starting with the bar and adding five or ten pounds per week. Also what should I wear to the gym? I have some chuck's that are flat on the bottom, and I recall reading that flat shoes are good for the gym. Obviously jeans would be a stupid idea, but would sweatpants be alright?

It's fucking 11pm and I'm trying to wait another hour or so before I go so it's dead empty and no one sees my baby weight.

Yo, not trappy, but I mostly do calisthenics, might be able to help you out a little?

First thing to do, as you've already identified, is eat more, that'll help with the strength and the muscle gains both.

Secondly, the easiest bodyweight routines to start with are probably either the startbodyweight routine, or the reddit bodyweight routine.

These can be found respectively at:

Here for the Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness/wiki/kb/recommended_routine

Here for startbodyweight:
http://www.startbodyweight.com/p/start-bodyweight-basic-routine.html

Those are better for complete beginners, there are some other programs, but they're more complex and these should suit your current needs.

Any questions, either ask here or come and join us over at the /asp/ bodyweight general, we have a pretty comprehensive list of information and some decently knowledgeable contributors.

Coming back to the gym after a 2 year hiatus. Just finished my first week today. My goal is to lose weight, so I'm going to the gym 3x/wk and my ultimate goal is to lower my overall bf%(lose man tits) and bulk up afterwards. I'm trying to figure out how much cardio I should be doing.

The routine I was using this week was 1 I randomly grabbed from the sticky.
A - Squat, Bench, Row
B - Squat, OHP, Deadlift
AxBxAxx
Would it be better to do SS instead? I run on the same days as I lift and I want to add more. Am I going to overtrain my legs by lifting (SS) 3x/wk and running 5x/wk? Will my body get used to it? Again, my main goal right now is to lose weight, relearn the form involved in all lifts, and increase my flexibility so I can reduce/get rid of my butt wink in my squat.

If your family has back problems, every wise doc will tell you to strengthen your back. Strong spinal erectors protect your back from pressure. Just film EVERY deadlift work set, and if you notice rounding, work on form. Paused deadlifts are the best for this, first pause after you get it off the floor for 1-2sec, then pause at the knees for 1-2sec. You'll immediately feel if your back rounds and its almost impossible to stay in that position.

It works just as other rep schemes.
The higher the weights (low rep ranges), the higher the strength gains.
The higher the volume (high amount of sets and/or high rep range), the higher the hypertrophy.
This of course is an oversimplification, but you get the point.
There are diminishing returns, though, specially when it comes to hypertrophy. Doing stuff like 9 sets of the same exercise isn't very useful because of that.

>>35621112

Looks completely fine. I would add lateral raises to B as well, since you wanna increase the OHP.

>>35621885

I think PPL+fullbody doesn't work well for your goals, since some muscle groups don't have enough time to recover with your current routine (like the legs and glutes between the deadlifts on pull to the squats on leg day)
Here's my suggestion, see if you like it:

Why would you do front squats before snatch and clean&jerk? I understand that in most general strength routines squat is more important than power variations of oly lifts, but if you want to get good at oly lifts (and not just power variations), they are technical af and you should use all your strength and focus while doing them (so do them first)

There's just no reason to do front squats and tax your core, back and legs and then go for snatch and C&J

that is just stupid af

Its entirely possible to hit [email protected] Most people aren't going to want to invest the time required to do it (and the average 90kg guy benching ~100 really isn't going to want to be 90 if his goal is a stupid big bench anyway) but its doable with the right circumstances.

Do SS on a slight caloric deficit.

>>35623760

Too much volume for someone on a cut.
Stick with http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

>>35623881
>>35624089

Yeah I was kind of joking. But there really isn't going to be a magic program to get you there. You can try Sheiko, Smolov Jr, Candito's Benching program... but really, it's gonna take long.

>>35621930

Transition to SS. You will eventually get stuck on SL, and it's much easier to not get stuck than to get unstuck.
http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

Besides, muscle growth is pretty much the same in both programs.

>>35621973

5x3 deadlifts at 100%+ is gonna be taxing as hell. I really don't see you being able to maintain that kind of volume and intensity for very long.
Also, it's gonna be really hard to progress on the OHP doing 5x5 with the bench 5x5 before. You're just gonna be too fatigued.
And for training 3 days per week, you're much better off doing fullbody than splits. You will get stronger and grow a lot more muscle this way.

Here's my suggestion:

A
Bench 3x5
Squat 3x5
Deadlift 2x3
Cable Rows 3x8
DB Curls 3x8

B
OHP 3x5
Squat 3x5
Weighted Dips 3x5
Cable Crossovers 3x5
Chinups 3xF or Lat Pulldown Chinup grip 3x8

C
Bench 5x5 at 80-90%
Deadlift 2x5
Barbell Curls 3x5
Barbell Shrugs 3x8
Lateral Raises 3x8
DB Rows 3x8

AxBxCxx

This way you are training every muscle group 3 times per week, instead of only once or twice.

>>35624574
The GOAT weightlifter doing doubles or triples up to 60% of 1 RM front squat does not somehow validate the program.

I am not flaming but at an early stage your strength work (squats, pulls, etc.) is going to tax you considerably more than doing the classics, so there is no point to do them before the classics, your technique will just suffer. In order for the strength work to even be worth it you have to make it "hard" enough that your body actually has to fight a little bit i.e. 70-80% 3x3 front squats at the end of the session. This is completely different to Ilya barely loading his body warming up with front squats in the beginning.

Don't skip legs! There's nothing wrong with having strong squats. What you can do though is shift the focus of the program towards the other lifts.
I do think the routine can be a bit improved, some muscle groups are not getting enough rest from one day to the other.
I also recommend you train 5 days per week instead of 6, since that allows for better recovery which in turn allows for better muscle growth and strength development.

Here's an idea:

A
Bench 3x5
OHP 5x5 at 80-90%
Dips 3x8-12
Cable Crossovers 3x8-12
Skullcrushers 3x8-12

B
Barbell Row 3x5
Pullups 3xF
Seated Rows 3x8-12
Barbell Curl 3x6-8
DB Hammer Curl 3x8-12

C
OHP 3x5
Deadlift 1x5
Squat 5x5 at 80%
Closegrip Bench 3x6-8
Barbell Shrugs 3x6-8

x

D
Bench 5x5 90%
Incline Bench 3x6-8
Lateral Raises 3x8-12
Front Raises 3x8-12
Skullcrushers 3x8-12

E
Squat 1x5
Snatch Deadlift 3x5 at 80-90%
Barbell Row 5x5 at 80-90%
Pullups 3xF

>>35622118

SL progression means you will take forever to get to decent weights, and then you will get stuck forever on the upperbody lifts.
It's just not a good progression scheme
On SS you start with the bar and add 10kg. Then you do one set of five and add another 10kg. You do that until the bar speed start slowing down, and then you do another two sets of 5 and move to the next exercise.
Then you add weight following the scheme explained on the picture of this post >>35611662
http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

>>35622795

I recommend you merge the chest and shoulder days into one or two Push days. This will lead to more muscle growth for both the chest and the shoulders, and the triceps also included of course.
Also, remove upright rows. They are the worst exercise possible for your shoulder health.

The rest looks completely fine.

I need to start my cut soon and I'm not really sure how to alter my current program to maintain muscle and strength. Came off of SS 2 months ago as I was stalling on bench and I injured my left knee squatting with poor form. Both issues have been corrected with this program but it's far too much volume for a cut.
What do I remove so that I look alright when I cut but don't lose strength? I plan on adding rowing and ab rollouts on each workout day as well.

It's not just him, everyone does that.
And yes, that's a submaximal load, but you have to remember that he's an advanced lifter. He does not work with his 1RM like an intermediate lifter would, since he is not able to peak on any workout. He works with daily/weekly maxes and stuff is a lot more complicated. So while those front squat sets LOOK easy enough, they might have been taxing enough because of his previous workouts and his weekly conditioning. You have no idea what part of his cycle he is in, nor what his cycles even are, so your judging of whether or not those sets were much effort, how they would affect his later sets, and how they would affect his recovery, is pointless.

Not only that, but Front Squats are FAR from being "too taxing" on your body.

So while it's cool to give your opinion and discuss these thing, don't act like yours is a fact or judge other's programs based on what you >think< is good or not without having actual experience with it. Sure front squatting before the oly lifts might not work for you, but that's just you. It works for a plethora of weightlifters and is pretty standard in many weightlifting programs.

You clearly have never done snatch / C&J. Do you even know how easily you miss even 80% of your work set when you have taxed your core and upper back with front squats?

And that oly video has nothing to do with this. How about you go ask opinion from OWG thread where people actually lift

Stop acting like you know everything, when your lifting experience is not that long

I do though. And I front squat before them in one of my days. :3c

You're like the people who go and tell powerlifters not to back squat before deadlifting because it's too taxing on their core and lower back and they are gonna miss 80% of their deadlifts. Meanwhile, take a look at Sheiko and the amount of gold medals his trainees have earned.

Not only that, but every trainee is different. You want to apply some "general rule" as if it's strictly true without even knowing the trainee's experience and numbers at the very least. Classic coaching mistake by people with no coaching experience :3c

You should look in the mirror before telling others to stop acting like you know everything.

I'll stop biting the bait, thanks.

Sorry if i've been too aggressive, im not giving you a bait. But you clearly don't know the difference between an oly lift and powerlift. You can't compare squat ~ deadlift to front squat ~ snatch. Oly lifts are not like squats or deads, they require so much speed and technique. You don't use those lifts to get stronger, you get stronger with squats, block pulls etc. and you transform that strength to your oly lifts.

There's no reason to go for a better snatch after front squat. You will just stall all the time. Maybe when your snatch increases only few kilos a year it starts to be different, but for beginners you just do them with all your energy and after that, you boost your strength with other lifts not the other way around

You will just develop a bad form that way. It takes yars to learn proper motor patterns for oly lifts. Doing them taxed is not going to help that.

>>35624941
When people talk about them being taxing, it doesn't mean for your CNS, but for your core and upper back.

Why you fail a front squat? Because your legs were 2 weak or because your core and upper back gave up? Well why do you fail snatch or C&J? because your speed / tightness / form was off.

Just never try to learn oly lifting plz
>>
>>35624923

Let me teach you how to not shitpost and actually contribute to the thread then:

>>35624062
>>35621885

I really think you should do the snatches and C&J before the front squats. Front squats can be too taxing and negatively affect the more technical lifts.

>>35624923

See, it wasn't that hard was it?
Didn't have to act like a dick
Didn't have to act like I know more than others
Didn't have to get BTFO in public
My suggestion might end up being taken seriously

>Why you fail a front squat? Because your legs were 2 weak or because your core and upper back gave up?

Legs too weak. Just watch any weightlifting competition and see how people fail the front squat.
>>
>>35624989
Ehm you are being wrong about this. It looks like your legs give up, but that doesn't mean that it was because of your legs. When you lose tightness from core and upper back, you can't keep a vertical back which is essential for FS. This changes your bar position, making it harder to get it up. After that, your legs will not be able to produce enough force. Just try FS with belt or without belt. You'll get my point.
>>
>>35625012

If you actually look at the side cameras you will see people fail the front squat even without losing tightness or the bar getting out of position.
>>
>>35625021
You never lose it because of your legs, and lifting belt already proves it, or how are you going to explain that?

I honestly don't know about the video you are talking about, but its really weird if an oly lifter misses a front squat because his/her legs are 2 weak
>>
>>35624969

I completely agree. They're too taxing to do both on the same day well; it's not that it's impossible, it's that you'll never be at your best doing both on the same day. The
bigger issue stems from different people having different muscle balances - some will tire their legs first before core or vice-versa. Doing the next compound will likely
result in the lift failing at whatever point the user is weaker in, thus not properly exhausting the muscle groups that have yet to be properly exerted.

To add to what that anon said, doing lunges first before squats will tire your hamstrings. Doing heavy squats afterwards will result in your hamstrings not keeping up with
your quads and your quads by comparison getting less involvement during the squat.

Especially if you want better carryover from F.Squats to Clean movements, going ATG will completely destroy your quads for cleans.

>You never lose it because of your legs, and lifting belt already proves it

Haven't read something this stupid in at least a couple of days, so congrats I guess.

>>35625077

Just like powerlifters shouldn't back squat before deadlifting, right?

This whole "it will tire you down" is a stupid meme by dyels and should die.
>>
>>35625120
You can't compare squat ~ diddly to front squat ~ snatch. You can drive force to the exercise throughout the lift in squat and diddly, but in snatch, you can't do that throughout the lift. So it comes down to being fast and explosive to get under the bar, whereas you can lift squat and diddly even if you're moving it slowly because you're fatigued.
>>
>>35624873
>I do though. And I front squat before them in one of my days. :3c

Sure you fucking do. Right when you put your dresses on.
How can you even say things like that when you posted your pics in here and everybody knows you are not serious about lifting.

>You're like the people who go and tell powerlifters not to back squat before deadlifting because it's too taxing on their core and lower back and they are gonna miss 80% of their deadlifts.

Except this doesn't even compare, because dl and squat might be similar mechanically, but are still different enough that they require different muscles to do most of the work.
Oly lifts are literally a combination of squat (front and overhead) and other components. If you squat heavy enough before them, your performance will suffer, no matter how non-taxing you think the front squats are.

>You want to apply some "general rule" as if it's strictly true without even knowing the trainee's experience and numbers at the very least.

Yeah, well it's not like Ilya's max is different than his PR +/- 5% any day of the week/month. Doing triples in ~60% zone is warmup, nothing more.

>Classic coaching mistake by people with no coaching experience :3c

Are you trying to imply you have coaching experience?

>You should look in the mirror before telling others to stop acting like you know everything.

No words apply to you better than these.

Seriously dude, seek help. You don't lift, you cross dress, you never squatted 2pl8 in your life, and you act like you are some all knowing expert with years of coaching experience, when in reality you are just a day dreamer with gender identity issues who read ONE book about strength training and now seeks attention on a board full of idiots.

Haven't posted on /fit/ for a while now. Can anyone help recommend a routine for linear strength gains with some attention to aesthetics, with accessory wrist/forearm work (have always had weak wrists since I quit the first time).

trappy-chan,

What ratio do you think a person's front squat should be to their back squat (low-bar for Rippetoe-senpai)?
>>
>>35625154

Yeah, specially because the back squat is 10x harder and more tiring than the front squat, and the deadlift is 10x more demanding than the snatch.
>>

being balanced (pulling vs pressing, anterior vs posterior etc), having the right amount of volume and intensity, having enough frequency. All else is preference.

By ratio you mean the proportion of the weight you lift? You can check symmetricstrength.com and strengthstandards.co for those numbers, they are usually fairly accurate with these.

If by weekly training, I'd say 2 back squat workouts for each front squat workout - for lifters who wanna focus on both. So for a texas method routine, you would back squat on monday and friday and front squat on wednesday.
But of course you don't need both, and some people just use front squats as high rep accessory.

>>35625474

Reg Park's 3x5 might be right up your alley

>>35624722

Lower the amount of sets for the main barbell lifts. Keep it at 3 at most, 1 for the deadlifts (unless doing submax).
DB accessories are fine to keep since they don't affect much of your recovery.

>>35626279

Looks great.
Eventually it might get hard to progress twice per week on the bench/ohp, so you might want to change B to a "light day" by removing the 5x5 work and doing the 3x5 work at 80%.

And remember to add small increments. The ideal is 1kg per workout for the bench and ohp.

>>35626390

Eating and resting enough.

>>35623018

There's a lighter version of SS for people on a cut, which might be better since the intensity per week is lighter.
http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ:The_Program

If you don't wanna do the power cleans you can just do light deadlifts 3x5 at 80-90%
