Who /not gonna make it/ here?
>tfw I see a woman squatting more than me
>tfw I can't do a single pull-up after 1 year of lifting
>tfw I stagnated at lmao1pl8 bench
>not gonna make it here
I have a retarded family, not even joking the is a fight 24/7
save me please, I might end up killing myself
With an attitude like that your not going to make it you pussy.
If your skelly EAT MORE and work hard.
If your fat EAT RIGHT and work hard.
I started at 11 and a half stone 6 foot 3 inches and looked straight outta Auschwitz mode.
I bulked for 2 years and now I can be proud of myself.
Frankly if your saying your not going to make it have fun with the rest of the people who didn't try at all unlike you
>Still haven't reached 2 pl8 squat
>Bench still hovering at just over 1 pl8
>Can't do deadlifts at all because they make my ass explode
>On the upside, I'm making sick fucking gains on OHP and I'm only 20 lbs away from 1 pl8
i think im actually going to make it
ive been doing cardio and lifting daily. i try to keep in my cut calories but if the family orders out i say fuck it and have a little anyways.
im leaner and looking better than i have in years. feels good man
Push-ups every fucking day
Like whenever you're body just pump out twenty
I used to do this as a teenager when I was like 15 and a skelly, mainly in the bathroom because I wanted to look at myself in the mirror, was probably doing like 120 a day total average
I hit over 1pl8 bench at 15 and could only squat 88lbs
Shit works but you'll be kinda disproportionate.
This is exactly me, wow. Currently on a cut though. Bulked kinda retarded, 18% bf now, all my fat is at my legs... Going to 10% and start bulking again with just a 250/300 calorie surpluss instead of eating everything i want.
>5 months of lifting
>I can already lift more than a guy I know who is a regular for over 3 years
Thank you for all the advice /fit/,I'm going to make it.
I know that feel.
>best bench is 1pl8 for 5 reps
>never done more than .5pl8 for ohp
>fell for the cutting and bulking troll so I always lose heaps of strength or get stupid fat.
>can't do pullups. Best I've ever done is 4 chin ups. Can only do 2 right now.
>been lifting for over 2 years.
I just hit 1pl8 today, 3x5 reps.
To be honest what's holding me back is the fear of the bar, I workout alone so there's no one to spot me, but I'm thinking on using the power cage because I'm sick of having a weak ass bench press.
No fucking T Rex for me.
I had the fun ol' family fights, i just shut them out and focused on what i wanted, i agreed with anything or ignored them, but my focus was really about being introverted or self motivated and selfish. It prevented me from getting sucked in to the poison and when i got out of there i was far more prepared for the real world than any normal person my age.
Lol you need to put on some pat benatar, smash mouth, and theme from Rocky into your play list, faggot. You'll never shine if you don't glow, you're on fire, and you'll be invincible.
Incidentally, after you come down from that power high, put on enya, Bruce Springsteen, or something and just cry like a little bitch.
After you're done with that, you'll feel genuinely better for some reason.
Eat more, sleep more, correct zinc/magnesium/vitamin D.
Try creatine, try beta alanine preworkout, try sugar and caffeine. Try DAA.
Buy or pirate the fucking SS book and read the form guides.
Watch the Rippetoe video series w/ art of manliness.
Watch this video on bench
Do cardio, it builds your recovery ability.
>been stuck between 155-185 bench for nearly a year now
>can't seem to crack a 315 squat despite breaking 225 back in april 15'
maybe i need to stop squatting 3 days a week?
Not him, but for some fuckers like me, just couldn't bench shit when I first tried. Played a lot of football, lacrosse, and wrestled growing up. I could easily squat 225 my first time, and hit 315 for a deadlift after a few weeks of learning form, but could seriously only bench 95lbs for 5 reps. Don't know brah.
>ate a lot of meat and bread today
>whatever, it was lean protein and whole grain
>excited to go for daily gym
>almost three weeks now of daily exercise
>get inside, tv is locked to food network
>can't change the channel
>guy fieri is on, fuck guy fieri
>whatever, go to start cardio
>right knee starts to hurt like ass every step
>get off treadmill
>ok it's a break day, i'll just go do weights
>start reps but can't take my eyes off the tv
>shows people in restaurants stuffing faces with fried food
>screw it cap'n
>go home defeated
i'll go again tomorrow night
real fitness occurs on rest days anyway, r-right?
>walked to gym today but it took me an hour to get there
God damn it. Gains are gonna have to be put on the back burner for a while. It's mostly cosmetic damage from what I can tell but I need new bumper, fenders and hood.
In 9th grade I benched lmao1pl8 my first time lifting and I only weighed 115lbs...then again I always did shit like dips and push ups for fun cause I was weird like that
And regarding op just keep working hard and don't give up on yourself and try eating more and gaining a little weight and your bench should go up
>just signed up for a 7 day trial at my nearby gym today
>qt puts me through the whole signup process
>get a quick tour of the gym
>social anxiety kicks in
>already feeling very intimidated by the big guys there
>realize I don't even have any goals or plans set
>been autistically learning & practicing Form with my brother's hockey stick all day today, hoping i'll be gud by the first time I show up
just fuck my shit up
If you are in HS , then just wait it out man there is a whole world out there, if not, start by getting a job and saving money, look for roommates or a room to rent in Craigslist. Getting out if a toxic situation will help you a lot.
Man, I'm done with life. Not even trying to make it now. I got the 2pl8 squats I wanted right before i finished uni last year. It was my last goal and the last time I lifted.
I just hang out here because I studied nutrition and physiology for a few years and I think it's interesting. And you guys can be funny as fuck.
That's a great squat, that's just a lot of weight to progress past. Easy to get stuck around 3 pl8s, take a week off doing bodyweight squats everynight (prevents soreness without impairing recovery), then go back to your usual routine. Eat a lot over this time.
Your bench is total shit tho, idk about that
Fix your diet and keep adding incremental weights. 2.5lbs are your friend.
I've been watching so many form videos, trying to fix it so much. Sometimes I hit it and it feels great, but it's difficult man, my back hurts for so long if I don't. I'm at 90kg after like 5 months.
> stalled for the longest (year +)
> tell myself its diet related
> dont want to gain weightor fat so i eat @ or below maintenance... leads to binges and purges, weigt fluctuates, over the course weeks i put on and drop 15 lbs..
>>>fucking binging and purging..
I'm starting to believe that its natural for my deadlift to go up 10-20 lbs each session. Started at lmao1pl8 just last month and I'm feeling comfortable at lmao2pl8 at 5 reps.
When is the gain train going to slow down?
We were definitely all scrawny fucks and I don't remember anyone starting with less than 135 when we started lifting
Some people have better backgrounds and genetics than you, deal with it or quit complaining
I never played sports because I was too weak and fragile as a kid. When I started lifting almost 2 years ago, I could bench the bar x5 and that's it.
Last week I 1rm'd 185 lbs, so suck my dick. I escaped auschwitz, got through twinkmode, and into ottermode now.
It's strong compared to basically everyone you'll find at a shitty commercial gym where nobody really lifts or takes anything seriously.
It's pretty bare minimum if you actually want to compete in strength sports or anything like that though unless you're really small. I train with a 69kg dude who squatted 185kg last week, his gf is the same weight and squats 160kg as well
>was too weak and fragile
Lol that's what you tell yourself? Unless you had brittle bone syndrome or something like that you were just a pussy. You think the little kids playing tee ball are tough? This is hilarious
>Been lifting for 5 years
I won't give up tho >:3
>is frog poster
>wants to killself
Literally no one is surprised
>Like whenever you're body just pump out twenty
>it's my family's fault that my life is shit
when your life sucks, it's your fault. don't blame others. leave them behind when they hold you back in life.
stop thinking like a child and you will make it
>can barely do 2-3 chinups, and not always starting from dead hang
>squat only 30kg with proper form
i started lifting in october and did 3 months of shitty routines full of machines and shit. Started a (more or less) proper routine 3 weeks ago, hope i finally start making some progress.
>my diet is shit, and I can't go shopping by myself
>I keep fucking up my squat (I'my guessing), and I have some back pain that happens after my session
>I'm still trying to get re-admittted to school, and it started today. (enrollment doesn't end until the 22nd or 27th)
I'm not going to and I accept. I literally workout to not look completely terrible
I eat very healthy all week, but then weekend comes and I drink about 20 high calorie beers over the weekend.
If I eat at a surplus I'll get fat because of that beer im not measuring. If i cut, i'll make absolutely no progress because my calories only come from beer basically
Suicide is the most coward thing you can do.
FIGHT FOR YOUR PLACE IN THIS WORLD, WORK HARD AND CLIMB THE FUCKING MOUNTAIN! Then, you will be on top of the world...
We're all gonna make it, brah.
