It's what most normies do, if they even squat that is.

3times a week.

You have to let your muscle rest for a day when you are a buguiner wich I am, so going 5 times a week would be retarded and would only proceed to fuck my shit up even more.

>>
>>26324548
I usually lift 4-5 times a week, but I'll run almost every day.
>>
>>26324580
This. Totally defeats the purpose of a squat. You're better off just using a leg press machine or doing hack squats on a sled.

I go 2-3x/week and do HIIT 3x/week. Been on 5x5 for a few months now and finally making some real progress.
>>
>>26324667
Burger faggot detected, you lift burgers 4 to 5 times a week?
>>
>>26324608
You can go 5 times a week if you're not doing SL or 5x5. I used to do this when I did really separate days (push day, pull day, shoulder day, leg day). Easier to get away with it when you don't hit the same muscle groups twice in a row.

dont bully me, i just cant do them without rounding at the bottom

i load up 9 plates on each side of the sled tho idk what the total weight is. that's going knees to chest basically

Lift three days a week.
Cardio/running two days a week.
Rest two days a week.
>>
>>26324741
I'm not. Pretty strong but also fat at 6' 220lb

Current lifts are 110lb OHP, 195lb bench, 265lb squat, 315lb DL. I want to hit 1/2/3/4 plates on all of those by the end of the year and also get under 200lbs.

I have a ways to go but I have faith that I'm gonna make it if I can stay disciplined and not give up on it.
>>
6 times a week, i'm at my peak physically wise (20 y/o hence high test) and want to know how big i can get naturally before cycling
1.83 m and 95 kg relatively lean atm (barely visible abs)

4-5 times... My rotation (without some minor exercises) is

1) legs + deadlift
2) biceps + triceps
3) chest
4) shoulders

>>26324764
If you're not bullshitting and can actually leg press 810 pounds, you need to start doing squats. The core and supporting muscles are just as important as the leg muscles you build while squatting.

Start with just the bar and see how high you can go without losing form. If your legs are already that strong, you should be able to move up in weight pretty quickly as your back gets stronger and catches up. Hip stretches and mobility exercises (the agile 8 is a great warmup for squatting) will help you keep from rounding during squats too.

Seriously, your overall fitness will improve greatly. Squats are pretty much the ultimate measure of your overall strength.

3 times a week to the gym.
2 times a week I go jogging.

>>26324944
You probably had shit form and The Press is a strict movement, no leg drive and uses a barbell. Most normies start well under 100lbs

7 but 90% of that is running.

>>26324944
Standing bar overhead press is vastly different than a seated dumbbell overhead, my friend. Your supporting back muscles are usually the limiting factor rather than shoulder muscles.

Seriously it doesn't seem like it should make that much of a difference, but it's a shock when you go to do them and realize how much you have to go down in weight from seated bar or dumbbell OHP.
>>

Read this.

Find someone fit at your gym and tell them you're new and want some input on your form. Most gymbros are super friendly and are willing to help out.

EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Literally all I do is benchpress and pushups. My chest, unfortunately however, remains tragically undernourished.
Today I will try 2.5 plates. Last time I tried this weight I almost literally died from getting my chest crushed in. Wish me luck lads.
>>
>>26325105

These niggas are pussies. Guy is here laughing at someone doing standing OHP. He thinks his retardbell and seated bullshit compares. OHP is hard as hell standing up.

We have guys here who pussy out of DEEP squats in favour of leg press.

You need to test your limits with the harder exercises.

Standing OHP/Deep Russian Squats/ Bench Press/ Chin Ups/Deadlifts, not curling and rowing dumbells for an entire session

Thank you, I'm glad there are people outside of /fit/ who understand this and actually know what they're talking about.

>Standing OHP/Deep Russian Squats/ Bench Press/ Chin Ups/Deadlifts
This is almost exactly my routine. Day 1 is squat/bench/pendlay row/skullcrushers, day 2 is squat/OHP/deadlift/pullups/bar curls. I assume from your comment that you do something similar.
>>
>>26325005

but dood, i've been lifting for a few years already. i kneel on a bench and row a 95lb DB. or 185 on bent bar. benching 185 for 10 idk what max is, never tried and probably wont ever because im not a powerlifter.

i would look like an idiot squatting lmao1pl8 or something, i have no idea how much i could do. how to even get the form right, ive tried them before they just never felt right to me
>>
I usually go to muay thai 3 times a week, but I go to 2 consecutive practices a day when I do. And sometimes an extra on the weekend
>>
Housemate and I hit the gym at least 4 or 5 times a week. I feel like I've plateaued, though. Stuck at 80kg bench, want to hit 100kg but I struggle to hit 3000 calories per day. I'm 6'4 so I should probably be eating even more.

Do this before squatting. It is ridiculous how much better big compound lifts feel when your muscles and joints are loose and properly warmed up.
https://www.t-nation.com/training/defranco-agile-8

It might help to do goblet squats to get your form down too (they make it way easier to balance when you go deep). I used to be the same way as you and thought I'd never be able to squat right. Turns out my hips weren't flexible enough and my back wasn't strong enough.

No reason to feel bad about squatting 1pl8 either. You've been going for a few years, so you should know that literally no one in the gym except DYEL faggots cares how much other people are lifting.

Anyone has tips for how to deadlift with proper form? not matter how much I try, I always end hunching my back, and I don't want to take a trip to snap city.
>>
>>26325535
Hunching back is okay as long as you dont hunch it a lot
>>
>>26325535
Think of it as a hip thrust. You push with your ass basically
Make sure you hold your core as well. When doing the negative, basically drop it, deadlift isnt an exercise you do negatives with

M8 I do 2pl8 at most, and my chest is probably the most developed part of my body. Check your form
>>
>>26325731
this

ive seen dyel looking dudes bench 2 plates and then other dudes who bench 185 for reps and are significantly bigger

it's more about reps and muscle activation than weight if you're doing it for the mass

just be a powerlifter if all you want to do is lift weight
>>
>>26325731

Im doing ss (inb4 meme workout). Not particularly strong yet but doubled my strength

120kg dl
100kg Squat
and shitty 50kg bench

my bench just isnt improving. I cant move past 50, im going to try it with barbells and add some more cheeky sets of bp though.

Tbqh I'm not very strong but im stronger than everyone else at work because lift for 4 hours a week which is nice
>>
Don't squads fuck up your knees?

Granted I have a hyperlordosis, but I tried squats for 6 moths or so and at some point I realised this would eventually wear out my knee joints. I switched back to leg press and do the reps slowly on there and it's great.

I think a lot of people overdo the leg exercises because to WANT TO BE REAL MEN HURR and hurt their knees in the process.There were some Russian guys at my gym who were a small sensation. Every weekend they did leg press sessions and the whole gym would peek at them, because they would slowly crank up the weight until they got to gigantomaniac weights. End of the story was one of them seriously busted his knee and he was never seen in the gym since then. I'd rather not fuck around with the most important limb of my body like that.
>>
Run Monday, Friday, and Saturday.
Lift Sunday and Tuesday.

Three days a week

2 times a week.

Once at home and once in the gym. I could never train more than 2 times a week. I really don't understand how you guys can do that? My muscles need time to regenerate.
>>
>>26326287
>Don't squads fuck up your knees?
Only if you have shit form AND do more than what they can handle.
>>
>>26326343
Sounds like you have low test
>>
>>26325535
Big breath in, push your chest out like a slut, push your feet down, and don't let that breath out until the weight hits the floor again.

Don't think of it like lifting the weight with your arms or your back will curve. Your arms should just be like little clamps holding the weight.

>>26326287
>don't squats fuck up your knees?
Not with good form they don't. They make your knees stronger in fact.

Try squatting low-bar, they don't put as much pressure on your knees as high bar squats do.

Went about 4 years working out 4-5 times a week. 3 day split with a martial arts class and a sunday cardio sesh

Started working full time and now the strength trainings lucky to be once a week so about 3 times a week. My upper bodies gone back to scrawny.

>>26326609

I know, but I think I've gained quite a bit of fat as well as muscle. I'm afraid of becoming a fat as fatass because my test is slightly below normal so I'm not gaining muscle as efficiently as I'd like.

You're right. I do a total body workout each time. I do a mild training session at home and an extensive one at the gym once a week. Is that wrong?

I also feel too tired during the week to train every day, even if I split the days up into body regions.
>>
3-5 times a week and I also try to walk 5km every day.

And also stop fucking saying plates instead of the weight. What the fuck is it really that hard to just typ 225 lbs instead of 2 plates? I just dont get it and it pisses me off and I have been browsing /fit/ for 3 years. Talking about "plates" only makes you sound like retards who try to fit in with "board culture".

end of rant
>>
>>26327302
Then you are unconditioned or are not eating enough. Start doing some cardio and eat more.
