Dear God if only I was lucky enough to have an hour alone with her. She'd probably use me as workout equipment.

Lift weights?
User avatar #16854 to #16852 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
Being a lifeguard is awful. At least where I worked. It isn't hard, it's just incredibly boring.
User avatar #16906 to #16854 - badgerbaiting (08/16/2014) [-]
First job I had was working with one of the most obese women I've ever seen as a head lifeguard. Christ knows how she kept the job. I had to buddy up with her for some life saving drills and the fat tart nearly drowned me.

Not trying to be a buzz kill, but fucking random girls you just met is a good way to catch something mate. Sex isn't worth herpes or shit like aids.
#16857 to #16856 - nsfwviewerfav (08/15/2014) [-]
Oh and yes very very boring.
User avatar #16874 to #16857 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
Well fuck me, you got super lucky then. I had just a generic city water park job. Mostly young kids.

i top out the pec deck
User avatar #16855 to #16850 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
No you don't.
User avatar #16873 to #16855 - FightClub (08/15/2014) [-]
312.5 lb
User avatar #16875 to #16873 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
I didn't even know what you meant by pec deck. I guess you meant bench press?

I bench 225 so good on ya.
#16881 to #16875 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
no, pec deck
User avatar #16882 to #16881 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Oh, that's a machine, no one is really impressed by how much you can do on a machine. It's different then just doing a straight press. I can max out on the lat pulldown machine (500 pounds), but I can only do 4 pullups with a 40 pound weight vest.
User avatar #16885 to #16882 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
try topping out the pec deck and get back to me
User avatar #16886 to #16885 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
with at least 10 constant reps
User avatar #16888 to #16886 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Next time I get into an actual gym I'll see. Haven't used that specific machine in probably a year. I'm not saying it isn't impressive, people just don't generally judge by machines because they aren't as consistent as raw benches, squats, or other movements.
User avatar #16889 to #16888 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
i just do standing flies, chest presses and pec deck flies
User avatar #16890 to #16889 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Wait so you do 312.5 for 10 reps on pec dec flies?
User avatar #16891 to #16890 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
the machine i use tops at 312.5 lb

i vary my sets from 7 - 15 reps, but topping it i do a max of 10
User avatar #16892 to #16891 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I'm asking if you are saying that you do 312.5 for 10 reps with flies, because if that's the case then I wouldn't believe you. Unless I'm totally wrong on what a pec dec is.
User avatar #16894 to #16892 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
a pec deck's repetitions are referred to as flies

standing flies and chest presses i do about 225-250
User avatar #16898 to #16896 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
impressive
User avatar #16895 to #16894 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I just looked up what a pec dec was to make sure I was envisioning the right thing. I was, it's a chest fly on a machine. There is no way you are doing 312 for 10 reps. If you can do 250 on one of those things a few times with good form you are considered a massive and strong ass guy. So unless you are about 220 pounds you're going to have a hard time convincing me of it. If you showed me a video of you doing it then I'd say I'm wrong, but as of right now I'll call bullshit.
User avatar #16897 to #16895 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
i'm actually 200 lb
User avatar #16899 to #16897 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
Well I guess I'll believe you, no sense arguing about it on a board. If it's legit then awesome job, I'll have to get to a pec dec and see where I'm at on it. I'm 190's and pretty lean so maybe I'll get in the 200's at least.
User avatar #16900 to #16899 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
just build up gradually; i really only focus on chest all the time, aside from pullups in all variants

it'll build your chest well, but do upward standing flies to work your upper chest to balance it out. the chest press machine is pretty balanced as well
User avatar #16901 to #16900 - marinepenguin (08/16/2014) [-]
I'm sticking to progressing on actual bench press right now, I'm just trying to build a solid base of strength. Get my bench up to 250s, then I'll focus on building size after that. I've gained 50 pounds so far, hopefully I'll be able to get another 30.
User avatar #16902 to #16901 - FightClub (08/16/2014) [-]
idk how much muscle mass i've gained in terms of weight as i've dropped over 30 lb since may due to all the cardio i've been doing, so

i know i've at least doubled in muscle though

User avatar #16834 - hsm (08/14/2014) [-]
Do you even lift? Or are you only a calisthenics guy/girl?
#16847 to #16834 - ehzio ONLINE (08/14/2014) [-]
I lift everyday and do cardio everyday

my calisthenics ain't no 250-300lb
User avatar #16833 - connorjay ONLINE (08/14/2014) [-]
So first three days back at the gym have been awful after 2 months off. I am treating this week as my "warm up" and going to try hitting hard as of next week.

All my gains are fucked, can't lift anywhere near what I could but it's a fucking start I guess.
However what is different is this time last year I was 75kg and 12.3% BF, whereas this year I am 83kg and 12.8% body fat, so that's a plus.
I'm just trying to decide whether just to stick with Whey Protein, or whether to add other stuff, like Creatine MH or some multivitamins or something.
Looking forward to sorting my diet out again, got fucking ruined in summer due to my lack of willpower and general shit moods, so back to no caffeine, soda and anything along those lines. Gotta get back up to scratch!
User avatar #16839 to #16833 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
Lost gains are a LOT easier to get back then new gains. If you had been working out for a while before taking two months off it should take at the most, half the time to regain everything as it did to get there for the first time.
#16831 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
I'm considering cutting down, I'd like to get to a lean 200, but where I am now I risk gaining even more fat trying to reach that goal. I'm about 193 right now. I've gained a ton of weight in the past year and I'm not sure how much exactly was fat, but I've gotten a lot wider for sure.

Think I should cut down or continue pushing forward.
User avatar #16860 to #16831 - lordketchup (08/15/2014) [-]
Why cut now? Wait until next year
User avatar #16876 to #16860 - marinepenguin (08/15/2014) [-]
Yeah the general consensus is that I'm an idiot for wanting to cut.
User avatar #16846 to #16831 - scoobydoobydo (08/14/2014) [-]
Abs still wisible and looking lean. I'd say it would be no problem for you to keep gaining at a nice slow pace.
#16832 to #16831 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
I was about 160ish in this photo.
User avatar #16835 to #16832 - hsm (08/14/2014) [-]
have you heard of intermittent fasting? I did a month of that and i got ripped. The only negative being i lost a little muscle too but now my abs are visible.
User avatar #16836 to #16835 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
I have, but I'd rather continue gaining muscle then risk losing some. I've posted on a few forums I visit. So far the general consensus is to keep going.
User avatar #16838 to #16836 - hsm (08/14/2014) [-]
that's good too. By the looks of it whatever you do is obviously working for you so keep it up. God lift the queen!!
User avatar #16840 to #16838 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
Thanks man, I appreciate it.
User avatar #16827 - donnybergerstory (08/14/2014) [-]
I noticed a lot of people saying not to watch Mike Chang/ The Hodge Twins. I want to clarify; I watch their WORKOUT videos. Not their opinionated videos. Mike Chang is definitely wrong in some areas of fitness, which is why I have NEVER EVER bought anything from him. His WORKOUT VIDEOS are good, they show different ways to do popular workouts that work for me. The Hodge Twins are entertaining to me, and their videos are sometimes funny. When I tell people to watch their videos I say that because it's good to see other ways of thinking fitness wise, and it's good to see other workouts that might work for you.

Anyone have any tips on increasing your dip reps?
User avatar #16829 to #16826 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
Do more dips. Don't go to failure all the time. Keep a few reps in the tanks, stop, then do another set. Continue until you can do more dips.
User avatar #16841 to #16829 - donnybergerstory (08/14/2014) [-]
I never understood why people say "till failure". It might just be me, but I prefer to do 4 sets of a certain number, usually it will be 4x10, 4x12, or 4x15. Till failure to me is kinda stupid, cause if you at 25 dips, then the next set you do 14 cause your burned out already your not really getting anywhere.
User avatar #16843 to #16841 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
Going to failure is good for certain things, if you are a bodybuilder and you chase the pump to increase muscle size, going to failure is a great way to do it because you get maximum volume. Then they'll add even more complicated stuff like dropsets to push yourself even more. If you are looking to increase muscle size then going to failure can be a good thing. Only problem is the higher chance of overtraining when you do it often.
User avatar #16844 to #16843 - donnybergerstory (08/14/2014) [-]
Yeah, but I know people who went till failure for every single thing they did. But if your just going for a regular workout, it is better to do a certain number in my opinion. But I think if your preparing yourself for something such as a sport, till failure isn't a bad idea.
User avatar #16845 to #16844 - marinepenguin (08/14/2014) [-]
Going to failure every single set and movement is a terrible idea. That's how you get yourself hurt.
#16819 - ussioc (08/14/2014) [-]
Alright guys, from UK, gonan be starting uni in around a month and know I wont be able to wake up early enough to be getting a proper breakfast. Anyone have any ideas on what I could eat to get a good breakfast but also would take little to no time at all to make?
#16858 to #16819 - anonymous (08/15/2014) [-]
Porridge oats in a shaker with water and honey (leave over night in fridge) then shake again in the morning, try it and you might like it.
User avatar #16820 to #16819 - sugoi (08/14/2014) [-]
Protein powder.
Or a sandwhich, I think turkey meat or roast meat are both good choices, give it some salad (tomato, lettuce) and you're good. And it should take that long if you prepare things beforehand.
