You go back in time to the day before your first time at the gym. What do you tell your past self?
Go to the fucking gym as soon as you get into highschool. You'll be more confident, look better, and won't become degenerate.
Please don't fuck that whore though. I know we don't, but don't give into her.
To all the guys recommending your past self to do SS, face it, you still wouldn't do it. No one wanting to look better is going to do a program that won't make him look better for months just because it's the most efficient way in the long run.
So yeah that thing you really want to do, just do something else for half a year, ok? I mean it's easy as fuck for me to say because I'm past that and just reaping the gains now :) Enjoy being miserable fucko
Honestly a prosplit is most likely the best way to start a beginner off. They're gonna get gains anyway and at least they are gonna enjoy it enough to actually get into working out. A shitty routine you stick to is better than a great routine you fuck up every time.
I didn't do squats or deadlifts for like 6 months after I started working out because I didn't care about lower back and anything more heavy than the bar would hurt my shoulders squatting. Yeah my gains were sub-optimal but if someone forced me to do SS from day one I'd quit after a month.
Always, always warm-up. Don't jump into your heavy weight sets to "conserve energy" or whatever other bullshit. (yes, I used to do this, and it led to many strains/snaps)
Don't move too quickly in weight with squats, observe absolutely strict form.
Don't let your muscles get unbalanced or grow asymmetrically.
Also, fuck Kalie and don't obsess over her for the next 3 years you moron.
Literally nobody likes SS tho. Its great if you can stomach it but goddamn its one of the most dull and repetitive programs out there.
incline grows pecs because retards cant bench properly(bar starts over eye sight and descends to sternum). They just go straight down and up and not diagonal.
If you replicate that movement with db's on an incline, or even an empty bar, you will see whats going on and activating pecs.
My only advice would be to stay off fit. you guys are truly cancer, but it made me a great lifter and skeptic at least.
>that thing you really want to do
Don't give me that bullshit. Any beginner starting on brosplits don't have a clue about what they "want to do". They just want a beach body. Mostly end up training arms every time and doing 6 types of curls.
After a year they all look the same: some lats, some triceps, some chest and overdeveloped guns. No back thickness, no traps, no big delts, no lower body.
And no lower back so they fuck up their shit anytime IRL have to lift something actually heavy cause most times trying to lift it with arms power.
Been there dude, I was 18 a shit tons of years ago too.
You fucking idiot, if you were supposed to do that you wouldn't be flat benching in the first place, you'd be inclining.
There is a reason lifts are performed in the direction of gravity.
>do only barbell compounds
>learn the oly lifts
>learn proper nutrition
Oh anon so the internet is not there yet? Well fuck you then. Enjoy your machines brosplit as no info is available.
>lauren is fucking multiple other dudes, break up with her and rail all those girls you want to rail.
>lift legs and shoulders more
>eat way fucking more.
>dont stop lifting for months at a time you dumbfuck.
Hello Anon, there's a thing called Bitcoins.
Buy them. For all your money. Get a job, and buy Bitcoins with every paycheck. Start selling when it reaches 1000 $ per coin, it will peak at 1600. Don't trust MtGox
All you others are scrubs who don't know how to make it.
Don't touch vidya.
NEVER EVER QUIT WORKING OUT.
Treat your mother like a goddess, you'll have so many regrets.
Weather out the hard times ahead. Nothing can stop them. Just keep that head up and push through it.
>Getting a bigger Deadlift, Bench, Squat and OHP every day you hit the gym is boring.
What kind of faggot are you? Everytime I go in to Deadlift or Bench I'm super fucking hyped to break PRs. How is doing fucking bicep curls more fun than smashing PRs and see milestones come closer and closer after every workout?
How to fucking squat properly. Spent 6 months not squatting because I had a mixture of shit form and bad knees (Lifting + fixing the former fixed the latter anyway) and stupidly listened to some faggot that the leg press was an acceptable alternative to squats. Finally just started squatting, the muscles feel so much different. But my progress is slow as fuck, I can't even squat with 40kg on the bar. I think it could be because I'm going too low, but I honestly don't know.
I have to find that out before I go tell him.
RETARD THE OP'S HYPOTHESIS IS THAT YOU'RE TALKING TO YOUR FORMER SELF THE DAY BEFORE YOUR FIRST DAY AT THE GYM YOU CAN'T TELL YOUR FORMER SELF TO GO TO THE GYM SOONER BY DEFINITION MY FUCKING GOD
