Guys, I am about to start the stronglifts 5x5 workout. I only have free weights, so I will have to improvise some of the workouts. Has anyone else done this? I would really appreciate any help or insight you have, thanks.
User avatar #22718 to #22717 - TokenWhiteKid (12/25/2014) [-]
stronglifts is a free weights exercise. You shouldn't have to improvise
#22719 to #22718 - anonymous (12/25/2014) [-]
He probably means that the exercises would be different to accommodate for a lack of a bar bell. You possibly could but it would be harder I think, since you would have to effectively have a ton of weights to manage it. Also some things may not be safe to do for lack of stability.

I honestly would recommend joining a facility that is going to provide you with quality equipment so you can do this safely. I suppose though if you are starting with really low weight that could wait some time.

I'm only 16, but Im just going to do this to gain some weight and get in shape, I'm shooting for dangerous goals.
User avatar #22716 - nyawgga (12/25/2014) [-]
I'm 140 lbs, 5'7, work construction full time, and work out 5 times per week.

Does 3600 calories sound like a lot for gaining weight?
User avatar #22725 to #22716 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/25/2014) [-]
Nope. That's probably enough. I needed 4000, although I'm quite a bit taller then you.
User avatar #22730 to #22725 - nyawgga (12/26/2014) [-]
I was previously doing like 3300 and was not successful, will 300 make the difference?
User avatar #22731 to #22730 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/26/2014) [-]
It'll make a difference if you saw no weight gain with 3300, you should see some lean gains with 3600.

It's fucking sweet. It's only a half rack, not a full cage. But it's a huge upgrade from what I had, and now I can do proper pull ups instead of my pullups from the garage support beams.

Tomorrow will be my second consecutive year deadlifting on Christmas day. I mean to make a tradition out of it. Will be doing 365 for AMRAP to see where I'm at. Gonna work it up to 20 over the next little while, same as I did with 315....

it begins anew....
User avatar #22693 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/24/2014) [-]
Benching today. Doing 150 for 12, shouldn't be too bad. I haven't reached a weight that is super challenging yet. Once I get to 165 it should start to be a real struggle.

Also I'm still doing those incline bench drms and still progressing in weight, which suprises me. I'm doing 3x8 today with 155 pounds, although I can't imagine I'll be able to get all I reps in a row on the last set.

Also I am switching back to skullcrushers today, my biggest dumbbells (65 pounds) got too light, so I'll do some incline behind the head skullcrushers that KungFuZerO mentioned a little while ago.

All in all, looking forward to the gym today as my chest has been progressing very quickly.
#22694 to #22693 - KungFuZerO (12/24/2014) [-]
If you every wanna switch up your incline chest, i love landmine presses.
User avatar #22695 to #22694 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/24/2014) [-]
I do those sometime. But those are more for shoulders then upper chest I'd say.
#22696 to #22695 - KungFuZerO (12/24/2014) [-]
You might be doing them too high. They would use much less shoulder than normal or incline bb bench if you're pushing out at about a 45 degree angle.
User avatar #22697 to #22696 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/24/2014) [-]
I see. The first I'd ever heard of them was in a shoulder workout article. So I used it and it's always been felt more in my shoulder then in my upper chest. I could see it being an upper chest workout if you tweaked the movement a little.
#22699 to #22697 - KungFuZerO (12/24/2014) [-]
Yeah, theres not very much leaning forward

Tried something new for back today. 3 different super sets: Pullups/shrugs, bent rows/deads, db rows/reverse flys.
Felt amazing, gonna have to try it with chest tomorrow.
User avatar #22700 to #22699 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/24/2014) [-]
Ohhhhh yeah I don't do it like that. I do it with one hand, standing up straight, bar is over my shoulder. I could see how that's more of an upper chest movement.

And nice, I actually managed to do 155 with my incline bench, although it was just barely. Those DRMs for pretty much every compound movement is an absolute killer.

Anyone know any good bodyweight exercises? Gonna be without a gym for about 5 months
User avatar #22688 to #22683 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
Push ups, pull ups, squats, dips, lunges.
#22681 - warkiller (12/24/2014) [-]
Alright, so I've been weightlifting for about five months now. Everything's going great. All my maxes are going up and I'm liking all the results except for one. My deadlift.
I started off maxing 295 and within two or three months it went up to 315.
Ever since I pulled 315, I haven't been able to pull anything above 295 and I've hit a plateau. I've seen almost no increase on my deadlift even though I do it every time that I should be.
Everyone says I have proper form, yet no gains.
I'm only experiencing this problem with my deadlift. Any help or advice?
And yes, I know 295 and 315 are laughable numbers, but you gotta start somewhere.
User avatar #22701 to #22681 - lulzformalaysiaair ONLINE (12/25/2014) [-]
Don't test your maxes. Follow your routine (5x5, ect) and then you'll see strength/muscle growth. Which will eventually lead to growth in max deadlift.
User avatar #22689 to #22681 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
What rep range are you working with? Are you trying to beat that number every time you go into the gym?
#22806 to #22689 - warkiller (12/27/2014) [-]
I'll go about a month in the 8-12 rep range at between 50% and 70% of my 1rm. For the next month I'll stay in the 5-7 rep range at between 80% and 100% of my 1rm.

So for the first month my routine for say, squats, would look something like:
3x12 squats @ 50%
End of the first month will look closer to:
4x8 squats @ 70%

Second month will look like:
5x6 squats @ 75%
end of the month before I max will look something like this:
1x10 squats @ 50%
1x5 squats @ 75%
1x3 squats @ 85%
1x2 squats @ 90%
1x1 squats @ 100% (recorded max, not current)
After about two to two and a half months I'll test my 1rm and write it down.
I do this on my compound exercises such as bench, squats, deadlifts, cleans.
And I only try maxing out when I'm supposed to.
But with the above method, I've made between 20 and 30 pound increases on everything every two months.
Except for deadlift. I've done the above routine the entire time and deadlift weight hasn't budged.

And sorry for the late response. Spent yesterday and most of today with the fam.
User avatar #22816 to #22806 - studbeefpile (12/27/2014) [-]
I'm talking specifically for deadlifts. What applies to bench and squats does not necessarily apply to deadlifts.

If I were you, I would rebuild your deadlift from the ground up. Take a really light weight, like 135, do it for one 20 rep set, and just do accessories for the rest of your pull workout. Each week, add literally only 10lbs, and try to hit 20 again. Hit 20 reps for the set for as long as you can. Once the reps start to drop just keep adding 10lbs each week. Eventually you'll go down to 10, 6, 3, 2, and before you know it, you'll be at your new one rep max, which I'm sure will be much higher than it was before.

It's important that you load up on accessories though, since you're only doing 1 set of deadlifts - especially when that set gets down to 8 reps or less. I recommend bent over barbell rows, dumbbell rows, and cable pull downs for 3x15-20 for each.
#22818 to #22816 - warkiller (23 hours ago) [-]
I tend to do the same routine for all of my compounds. I just simply used squats as an example.
And thanks. I'll try that and see if it works.

Also, what's your input on rack pulls? I've heard people talk about using rack pulls to increase your deadlift. I've also heard, though, that it doesn't do anything for deadlifts.
User avatar #22819 to #22818 - studbeefpile (23 hours ago) [-]
It depends. If you have a weak lockout, they're great. I used them to improve my lockout.

If you're one of those guys that can finish as long as he breaks the floor, then they have no purpose.
#22821 to #22819 - warkiller (23 hours ago) [-]
Ah, alright. Thank you.

When lifting does one lock the joints or stop before the lock. I've been told both.
User avatar #22675 to #22658 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
Lock out. Full range of motion, keep everything controlled.

Now, don't go slamming your joints out, just make sure everything is straight before going back down.
User avatar #22673 to #22658 - derpityhurr (12/24/2014) [-]
unless youre trying to do some advance time-under-tension type stuff you should lock joints, you fatigue your muscles otherwise
Also, on some exercises not locking joints can lead to injuries (ie bent elbow on deadlift)
User avatar #22661 to #22658 - teoberry (12/24/2014) [-]
dont lock, it fucks your joins
User avatar #22676 to #22661 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
This isn't true.
User avatar #22684 to #22676 - teoberry (12/24/2014) [-]
really? everyone I've ever worked out has told me to push yourself right to locking, but never do.
User avatar #22685 to #22684 - studbeefpile (12/24/2014) [-]
A lot of people also curl in the squat rack, but that don't make it right.

I've been locking out all of my movements for quite a while now. Never had any joint pain related to it. It's just one of those myths people use to get out of doing more work.
User avatar #22686 to #22685 - teoberry (12/24/2014) [-]

Yesterday was supposed to be my off day, from lifting and from work, but then I got called into work and what did they have me do? Move hundreds of pounds worth of shred, and then move hundreds of pounds of documents, and then move several hundred pound metal cabinets full of documents with a dolley. After 8 hours of that I was sweaty and exhausted, today my biceps and lower back are sore, and I'm supposed to Squat and deadlift today. Awesome.

Welp, I might be fucked.
I worked hard for nearly a year to gain 15 lbs of noob gains.
Was sick with a flu so bad I spent two weeks on an IV drip with nothing to eat in a hospital bed, then I couldn't even sit up straight for another week.
Ive been taking it easy for a month and now I lost all inspiration to work out.

Worst of all I lose 10 pounds of what Im sure is muscle cuz I've always been a skinny fuck.

As a last ditch effort to get back into the kick of things I did abs yesterday and the pain that noobs get has come back and is killing me.

What do, I lost it all in 3 weeks because I was in the hospital, and I don't even feel like I can work out anymore.

Also how bad is morphine and codeine?
Because that was my diet for those 3 weeks.
User avatar #22630 to #22629 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/23/2014) [-]
You didn't lose 15 pounds of muscle in 3 weeks. And the muscle you may have lost you'll get back pretty quickly. When you sick you lose mostly water weight. Since you were in the hospital for 3 weeks of say you lost some mass too. BUt lost gains take a LOT less time to get back then all new gains.
User avatar #22631 to #22630 - mendelevium (12/23/2014) [-]
I feel pretty shit as well.
Dont know if its the sickness or the lack of exercise but getting out of bed is a challenge at this point.

User avatar #22632 to #22631 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/23/2014) [-]

okay, guys. i seriously need your take on this.

i'm 15, just turned so 2 weeks ago.

at 15, i am 5'11 with a 6' wingspan.

what am i projected to be at 19?
User avatar #22603 to #22602 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/22/2014) [-]
A little bit bigger then that.
User avatar #22604 to #22603 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/22/2014) [-]
But seriously dude, there's no way to know. Sometimes not even your parents are a good way to measure how big you get. At 15 I was 5'9. By the time I was 17 i was 6'3 with a 6'6 wingspan. Both my parents are 6'1 and I'm bigger then both of them by quite a bit. And supposedly I'm still growing a little. Why are you wanting to know anyways?
User avatar #22605 to #22604 - lawlfailwinepic (12/22/2014) [-]
well, i'm trying to join the varsity football team my senior year. coach said the ideal height for a quarterback would be 6'2 and up so they can see over the big ass linemen.

i'm already the biggest freshman on the baseball team, i'm just praying i can be starting qb, you know?

do you have qb experience? it's not something you can just pick up in senior year. if you're big+fast you could play db

i've played qb my entire life.
User avatar #22708 to #22706 - teoberry (12/25/2014) [-]
shit eh, i got the vibe you wanted to try out for qb. but yeah dude you're 5'11, by the time you're 17-18 you'll have a couple more inches.
User avatar #22608 to #22605 - marinepenguin ONLINE (12/22/2014) [-]
Completely understandable. Just look at how tall your parents and grandparents are. if they're tall you are more then likely to be tall also. And even if your not gonna be 6'2, you can still be a quarterback. My brothers team went to the state finals this year and their QB was 5'7. He was just built like a house and was extremely smart, he's an all state quarterback as well. The ideal height for a QB is 6'2, but they'll take anyone who has the ability to be one if they've got the ability.
