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.
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.
>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.
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.
>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.
>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.
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
