hey /fit/ noob here. I just wanted to know why my curls are lacking.

Ever since I've started lifting about a month ago my deadlifts, squats, and bench have gone up drastically.

DL: 120lb
Squat: 100lb
BP: 150lb

but for some reason I can't make any progress on my arms, I'm still stuck curling the 50lb unloaded barbell. It's so embarrassing, when I get done squating I have to unload all the weight, struggle to pop out 10 curls, barely do 8 on the second set, then get stuck at 90 degrees with my arms shaking on the 3rd rep at the last.

sounds pretty sound to me. Arms take fucking years dude

>Been lifting for a few weeks
>Doing BB curls

What program are you on Anon? You shouldn't really be focusing on BB curls as a noob lifter in my opinion. Do chin ups and pull ups instead.

3 Day Split of Chest, Back, Arms/Legs

I'm too fat to pull myself up.

>bench more than DL

the fuck? how is that drastic progress. i was king skellington when i started and even i started at 135 for DL
>>
>>35674482

no, just fat and lazy.

I could go higher, but I'd rather not fuck my shit up. I'm just doing this for weight loss.
>>
>>35674476
who cares if you look like a retard an is not able to pull himself up? You'll still get stronger from trying to do pullups than being a bitch not even trying
>>
>>35674509
fuck your shit up? you are at 0% risk for shit-fuckery until you hit at least 3plate unless you go full peter griffin.

dont do this and youll be fine. once you get to like 5 plate then you can start worrying.
>>
>>35674476
assisted chinup or lat pulldown.
>>
>>35674482
A beginner girl benching 150... Come on anon
>>
>>35674532

Hang there and squirm for 3 minutes trying to get 1 rep.

Yeah bro, that's sure to give me some gains. I'm gonna hold off on pullups till my Lat pulldowns go up.
>>
>>35674509
>just fat and lazy
You don't want to be thin, you don't want to be healthy. You'll stick with it for a few weeks then give up like everything else you've ever tried, besides being a useless piece of shit.

>fuck my shit up
Don't worry twinkle toes, the only way you're going to hurt yourself on those numbers is if you drop the weight on your foot. You're never going to get anywhere lifting baby weight.
>>
>>35674329
i'd be more worried about why my bench was more than my dl and squat
especially cause 50 pounds is a good bit of weight for someone benching 150.
>>
>>35674476
>He fell for the SS is a meme meme

Enjoy your no progress retard. SS got me a 135 pound strict BB curl.

He's a retarded fatass who can't read the sticky, that's why. He won't make it.

lol wtf is wrong with you guys? Buncha psychopathic man children, I swear.

I'll just go do my own research, /fit/ obviously doesn't lift.

Yeah, we are the ones who obviously don't lift.

if a beginner girl benches 150 lbs.... she is not a girl.

>Comparing compound lifts to isolation lifts

A general rule of thumb: the more muscles you are using (more accurately the more total muscle mass) the faster you can progress on a lift. It's why squats and deadlift progress faster than the bench press, which progresses faster than ohp, which progresses faster than curls ect.
>>
>>35674601
He's probably cheating his bench reps and being lazy with his squats and deadlift. He's self proclaimed lazy and fat of course he's not working hard. He's doing the minimum.

To be fair though I started way lighter than I needed to on purpose. It let me learn proper form, get through DOMS while still pretty light, and habituate myself to lifting regularly. I started and stopped lifting pretty regularly until I got serious about my shit and started real light. Couldn't give myself excuses if the workouts were easy and I was progressing linearly. By the time the weight started feeling heavy lifting had solidified as a hobby and it was easy too stick with
