>Hafthor was already 400lbs and a professional athlete before he started lifting
Not true. (Well, the professional athlete part was true, sort of.).
Now, granted, genetics play a big role in these things, and real life isn't a video game, you don't just get to go "oh, I want to be like that" and be that way, and these threads are pretty stupid generally--but Hafthor wasn't always a big strong guy.
Well you can assume he eats and trains a certain way. Of course there is a genetic maximum to everyone, but there's still something to be said to try to emulate someone to obtain similar.
Most arts are based on that.
>Well you can assume he eats and trains a certain way.
Sure. I guess my problems are twofold. First, people expect that if you train and eat (and even drug) like the pros you'll get their results. Second, on a deeper level, if you were gonna git gud fast you'd already know it by now--you'd already be a prodigiously good athlete with a scholarship somewhere, etc.--so you're gonna have to work for a long, long time to be impressive to anyone other than normies. And you (not you personally, I hasten to add) think that wanting to look like some random minor celebrity is enough to motivate you to do that? I dunno, man, that seems really weird to me, kind of an abnegation of your own identity and your ability to have independent goals, and I don't think it's a coincidence that people who have been doing this shit for twenty years don't have goals like that.
>most arts are based on that
Most arts aren't so profoundly effected by genetics and the amount of chemicals you put into your body, anon. The whole "bobybuilding is an art" thing is a straight up meme.
Cuz my shit's all fucked up and I might be retarded, man.
Yes it is true. His weight was 396 when he played basketball professionally and nationally in 2006, and even his weightlifting coach confirmed he weighed that much in his documentary.
Don't be discouraged anons, of course you can still be muscular and defined natty, definitely 100% better than if you didn't train at all. You'll just need the roids to get thick by /fit/ standards. You can still look yolked by normal person standards.
Obviously outliers are gonna exist, the fact that he's 6'8 is pretty indicative of good genetics. I'm talking about the average tall dude, which is what most of the tall people here are by definition.
Thats just plain wrong.
Average americans diets are based around 2-3k calories a day (aside from fatties). A normal breakfast, normal lunch, and normal dinner for a manlet is very adequate. For a tallbro its not even close.
Bulking with at 4500+ calories is very hard to do and most tallbros don't know how to eat that much.
Its as simple as that. We get just as strong just as quickly we just have to spend double the $ to do it.
Which is ok because we make way more money than manlets on average, anyways.
Depends what your weight is. And energy expenditure. Do 300 cals over your TDEE. Unless you have a manual labor job, your TDEE should be close to your baseline, and then add in 500-750 cals per lift day depending on your lifting intensity. Split those cals over your week, then add 300. Tbh senpai a calculator isn't going to be right other than to calculate your baseline. Which is your bmr (basal metabolic rate).
You can but honestly it's better to carb cycle and eat more on the lift days with the difference being the amount of carbs you eat. 30% fats, 1g protein per pound of LEAN body mass, the rest carbs. But carb cycling is a lot of time/effort so it depends how much time you want to invest.
But you can just eat the same amount everyday. The difference is minimal, especially in new people. Just don't dive in with the most work and end up not sticking to it cuz it takes dedication.
What about brian shaw? hes 6'8", 434 and is a literal tank
>naming random drugs.
>a bodybuilding cycle
A guy competing in strongman will allways mix a compound that hightens calcium synthesis and a highly androgenic compound together.
His face change (moonface) suggest him to be a Deca user more than a Tren user. Though he is likely doing both.
Have you seen his basketball pics? He was a twig. There's no way he weighed nearly 400lbs. Do you seriously belive that the difference between the twig he was to the guy now is only 20lbs? Don't be a retard. He clearly gained around 100 - 150lbs.
Yep he says it, I think
insecure fairy bitch manlet detected. time for you to fuck off back to the shire, squirt LMAO.
>not learning how to cook like a sumo and working out daily to bulk up
>not eating endless amounts of red meat to increase test levels greater than gods
>not understanding the mentality of strongmen
dam i sure do love vice's alternative take on interviews only wish it was more in depth :C
honestly you could roid for years and never look as good as this guy. if you honestly think you could get that body, even with a small fraction of his height, you are unbelievably stupid. roids don't have to do with abs, they have to do with building muscle you dipshit. you can get extremely low body fat levels with sexy abs without ever touching a needle, and you can pin for a lifetime without ever getting cut. true strongmanmode takes a few fucking pins, no joke.
step 1: Don't be a manlet
step 2: Have dem glorious nordic genetics
step 3: Eat a lot
step 4: Workout a lot
Lol you have no idea how big that guy's arm is
It looks 'small' because it's a photo image with no real reference point. You don't know the size of his head, the other people or anything
People on this board have no clue just how large a tall person's arm is. They think that just because they don't look like over-inflated clouds that they're DYEL. In real life, a tall person's arm may lack a few inches in circumference, but it more than makes up for it in length.
This guy, or at least his arm, probably looks massive to even you, you autistic /fit/-memeing manchild
