Thanks /fit/, you kicked my ass into gear and got me to leave auschwitz mode.
5'9 110 lbs to 145. Lifting and dieting since late July or early August
Who else turned their life around
I'm bulking until March to gain a few extra pounds and then cut
Went from 5'11" 130 lbs to 165 lbs in 6 months, started lifting in early July
my squat is shit because I injured myself in the beginning and had to neglect quite a few leg days. I want to being my bench and ohp up. deadlift is decent I'd say
My transformation. I need a new most recent pic, the last one is from late nov, iirc.
thanks, man. I'll definitely work on it. bench seems to take forever to go up. I'll just try and eat more
It's an expression, I'm not literally on gear. I meant /fit/ motivated me to make a change in my life.

>implying women should be educated
Pretty simple actually, just lift hard 5+ times per week and eat well. I don't have a specific routine, I just follow a bro split and do different exercises for whichever muscle group it is on a given day until I've been at the gym for at least an hour.
Example chest/triceps day might look like this:
3x10 Bench press
3x8 Dumbbell bench press with drop set after last set
3x12 Fly machine
4x12 Overhead rope extension
4x12 Rope pulldown
After this my chest/triceps should be very sore and then on the next chest day I'll increase weight and/or change up the exercises I do. For example, I might do incline bench and dumbbell bench instead of flat or do dumbbell overhead raise instead of overhead rope extension.
