Are you completely positive in your single year of not being in High-school that marriage is clearly the best option

I mean it's not like saying "I'm gonna squat low bar today", this is like saying "I'm going to take a knife the where the bar rests for High bar squats, completely destroy all possibility of ever doing high bar again, and squat low bar forever because that set of 225 felt good" when you've been lifting for 6 months

If you're COMPLETELY 100% ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE this is THE ONLY person you ever want to be with, then congratulations, but it seems like you're taking jumping the gun to a whole other realm of existence at 19

Honestly, we knew we were gonna get married within a month of dating. Believe me, we wouldn't be doing this if we both weren't 100% sure.

Reasonable concerns, but sometimes things just workout like this. I'm perfectly content to be getting married this young, and so is she. We discussed it at length, many many times, and this is what we both want, and happily commit to.

As do I, but still. It's not exactly like it's something short term without repercussion. It is a lifelong commitment, and doing it at 19? It's worrying. What if she takes all his gains in the prenup?

I have friends who got married right out of high school and so far they're pretty darn happy together. I also know lots of people who married young that stayed together. But I also know a lot of the opposite. Personally I'd have to be with someone a couple years and have lived with them before I thought about marrying them. It's a big decision.

Oh yeah. I've already got her squatting to good depth holding plates out in front of her.

She also benched 100lbs the first time we benched together. She's got some serious genetic potential for benching. I'll have her benching 200 within a couple years for sure.

That's pretty good for a first time lift as a female.

It's even better that she's willing to pursue something that your interested in. You should learn to cook with her too and do cute shit together.

Having a good diet in combination with exercise gives by far the best results. Lift some weights, do some walking and eat right for maximum a little muscle gain and decent fat loss.

What work outs/exercises will make me better at walking up hills while carrying 60+ pounds in a pack?
#43554 to #43549 - baglesbites ONLINE

(03/07/2016) [-]
The best way would be practice by walking up hills with 80lbs on your back. But exercise wise, do heavy deadlifts, squats, farmers walks and a shit ton of back work. Also do some hill sprints for extra cardio and just work on overall strength and endurance.

I was doing some dumbbell work while my partner did his fucking hour of stretching, and she was using it for squatting along with the bar. We got to like 275 on this rack when she finished and we swapped the bar out

Normally we go at night, but now we go to another gym for the most part because this place is shit. Problem is we can't deadlift at the new place for roughly a month or so it's not actually open for business yet, and right below it is a telemarketing company so we had to go to Kickedoffracksistan today

Quick workout question.

I'm weak. My max for bench press is probably 100-125 pounds.
Let's say I started at 80% of my max and increased the weight by 5% every 2 weeks.
That would add up to 100% increase over aprox. 5 months.

I'm not saying I will exclusively bench press.
But considering I'm very, very, fucking far from peaking or anything like that, is it possible that I would be able to double my lifting ability in 5 months?

Find a 5x5 full body routine, go hard and eat like a monster. It should be possible for you hit somewhere in the 200+ range for reps after about a year.

hello guys, I'll be living in korea for some time, and I would like to get in shape, loss some weight, get a little muscle, so I would like some advice from you. Here in the dorms we have a little gym, so it's easy to go. I think the biggest problem is the food. Koreans eat a lot of rice, almost all the food is rice with something. In the other hand, they tend to drink water instead of soda. Right now my weight is 71.5 kg (157,6 lbs). Thank you guys.

Lift full body 3 days a week and go on walks every day. Rice shouldn't be an issue as long as you keep the portions reasonable and eat as much meat and fish that is available. Rice is one of the best sources of carbs nature made so don't sweat it too much.

So can someone explain to me why the soreness from working my arms/chest actually feels good but the soreness from squatting and doing calf raises makes me want to kill myself?

That basically means you're not hitting lower body frequently enough. More frequency means your body will eventually be less sore and for a shorter period of time.

I just got a gym membership and I've never been to a gym before in my life.

I currently weigh 200 and I'm 5'8

I'm trying to go down to atleast 160Ibs.

Is there any specific workouts I should do for my chest, thighs, and bum?

Bench for chest, you could also use a pec deck. Squats for your bum, and you can use multiple machines for your thighs.

Been working hard on grip stremf lately. Pulling 315 with standard double overhand for reps, is now no problem. Did suitcase holds with 135 for sets of 15 seconds today, been doing lots of farmers carries lately, stuff like that. It's not even that I ever had issues with grip strength - like, I've never had a deadlift slip out of my hands or anything...I just want some massive fuckin' forearms, bros. They' coming along....they' coming along...

Do you ever just have a workout that completely blows away your expectations? No sleep, long day at work, hardly any food, and I squatted 350lbs 3x3 like it was nothing. 405 can't come soon enough.

Good pre-workouts? I've been using Bulk Powder's Creatine Monohydrate mixed with their Complete BCAA Energy. I've been thinking about getting Grenade 50 Calibre Pre Workout or something similar as a proper pre-workout. has anyone tried it or got any good recommendations or am i just fine sticking with BCAA's?

Should a 6'4 fat guy deadlift Sumo or Conventional? Neither are comfortable which means it doesn't matter

Studbeefpile you're the deadlift guy help pls
#43519 to #43500 - studbeefpile ONLINE

(03/06/2016) [-]
Okay, a lot of it has to do with how long your arms are. If you have long arms, and don't have much of a problem staying upright with conventional, go for it. It would allow you to use your weight to pull back into the bar, and give you a better break off the ground, as well as giving you an opportunity to get in a solid amount of leg drive. If you have short arms (like myself), sumo will most likely be a better fit, allowing you to get into a better, more upright position to pull from. Femur length comes into play as well. If you have long femurs (also like myself Short arms + long femurs = the worst deadlift genetics....I still pulled fahve-hunnit tho, no excuses. ), then sumo will also give you a better opportunity to get closer to the bar.

Depends on a thousand different things.

Long story short, deadlifting when you're fat is difficult.
