Apparently in American Sniper Bradley Cooper had to gain 50 pounds of muscle to fit the part of Chris Kyle. I didn't even recognize him at all.

That movie looks like shit. I can't stand the previews for it.

Him: Baby...
Her: Baby?
Him: BABY!!!!
Her: Baby?????
Him: I'm ready to come home, baby.
Her: [big]BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![bi g]

It's like listening to that shitty Justin Bieber song back from when he was like 13.
User avatar #24094 to #24092 - marinepenguin (01/17/2015) [-]
Yeah the movie is nothing like that. And neither are any of the previews I've seen.

The movie is trying to show the horrors of war and how it can really fuck with the soldiers involved.
User avatar #24096 to #24094 - Elk (01/17/2015) [-]
I've seen two previews, and one consisted of the word "baby" about 10 times.
User avatar #24097 to #24096 - marinepenguin (01/17/2015) [-]
So then that makes the entire movie shit? I never picked up on any of that.

Don't suppose I can send someone on this board my exercise routing and they will have a proper look at it and tell me what they think?

#24106 to #24105 - psyexplain (01/17/2015) [-]
Nice one, just trying to decide whether to swap the reps and shit about.
Also, my squats aren't hurting, but I've only been doing 100kg so fingers crossed!
#24108 to #24106 - marinepenguin (01/17/2015) [-]
Nah it looks good to me. I've never seen close grip rows before. Is that with a standard bar or are you doing it with a neutral grip like in the photo?
#24119 to #24108 - psyexplain (01/17/2015) [-]
Nah, some guys in my gym were complaining that doing what was in your pic wasn't effective, so I showed them mine and preferred it, so I just stuck with mine.
User avatar #24120 to #24119 - marinepenguin (01/17/2015) [-]
I gotcha. The way in the photo isn't great. It's better to have you hands in a completely neutral position instead of being one above the other. I like it like that anyways.
#24150 to #24120 - psyexplain (01/18/2015) [-]
So you would suggest using the way in your pic?

Also, did you see all the other tabs, or just for bicep and back day?
User avatar #24161 to #24150 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
I would suggest to take that tool from your picture and jury rig the bar to where you can use that handle instead having a weird neutral grip. That way you are using the same grip during that cable row, but it's more of a free weight movement.

And shit I didn't even think about that. Gimme a sec.
User avatar #24162 to #24161 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
As for the rest of the week, I'd take deadlifts out on Wednesday. No need to do them twice a week. And then I'd lower the volume on arm day a LOT. You already have a lot of volume for your arms throughout the week, so I wouldn't even think you'd need one. But if you really want one I'd limit it to two bicep and tricep movements each.
#24166 to #24162 - psyexplain (01/18/2015) [-]
I was well confused then, I don't have an arm day. Ignore that tab, that's what I used to do, I do back and biceps, chest and triceps now.

Yeah, alright, I'll get rid of deadlifts on Wednesdays.

Anything else you think? Reps seem decent and stuff?
User avatar #24167 to #24166 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
Yeah. Everything else is good. If you're interested in learning a new movement I'd look up snatch pulls. They're like upright rows but wider grip and you use more leg drive to get the weight up. They're easier on your shoulder and build up your upper back like nobodies business.
#24168 to #24167 - psyexplain (01/18/2015) [-]


They look horrifying... I will give them a try I guess!
#24171 to #24170 - psyexplain (01/18/2015) [-]
Also look slightly fucking difficult! Can't wait for shoulder day...!
User avatar #24172 to #24171 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
It's more of an upper back/rear delt movement.

Definitely start really light and figure out good form and technique. I've been doing them for 8 months and I have good solid form and am finally moving good weight around.
User avatar #24173 to #24172 - marinepenguin (01/18/2015) [-]
But in those 8 months my upper back has grown a TON.

**Elk rolled image** Jesus Christ, I just got back from the gym. I'm freaking exhausted.

I actually haven't eaten much today either. I was hungry when I got out of bed this morning, but I don't like to eat when I first wake up, so I just cut a small slice of pizza in half to hold me off for a bit. After my workout, I had some Muscle Milk Fuck you, I like Muscle Milk.

I'm sure I've had less than 400 calories, but I still feel great.

The entire thing is WAY to big to explain in an FJ board.
Evn the TL;DR version would be to large. But i can give you a few focal points.

1: Pick a workout routine and stick with it. Dont change excercises every day
2: Form > weight
3: Free weights > workout machines
4: Never skip leg day
5: Never skip leg day
6: Squat and deadlift
7: Hydration is key
8: A good diet is 85% of fitness
9: Pick a good gym
10: Remember that you wont reach your goals in a few weeks.

And try to read this:
User avatar #24069 to #24064 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/17/2015) [-]

Well right now I'm doing calf raises, hamstring curls, and an alternating set of RDLs and leg extensions. I'm also doing the 20 rep squat program on a different schedule. But this is pretty low in volume compared to normal. I usually do sprints, Bulgarian split squats or goblet squats, and either lunges or some other single legged movement.
User avatar #24082 to #24081 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/17/2015) [-]
You do most of these with just a barbell and a bench?
User avatar #24084 to #24082 - marinepenguin (01/17/2015) [-]
I have a special bench that allows me to do ham curls and leg extensions. But everything else doesn't need special equipment.
User avatar #24085 to #24084 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/17/2015) [-]
and RDLs are Romanian deadlifts?

So, I'm thinking if I finally set an ultimatum for myself, I'll finally start working out. Like, if I don't lose a set amount of weight by the beginning of next semester, I put a bullet through my head.

Honestly, this is the last thing that I can hold over my head, figuratively and somewhat literally. I don't care enough about just about anything and I mostly just exist because I figure I have to stop not caring eventually. I have no goals, no ambitions, no desires aside from comfort and necessities. If I finally have a real goal, I might be able to shake myself out of this.

What would be a good way to use swimming to supplement a normal lifting workout plan? I usually lift three times a week (chest/tris, back/bis, legs/shoulders, along with 1/2 hr cardio after each workout). I was thinking about adding a swim day on the weekend where I swim, but I don't really know how long for or what strokes to do and stuff. I know how to swim but it's been awhile.

Any advice?
User avatar #24057 to #24056 - lulzformalaysiaair (01/17/2015) [-]
Check how well your swim cardio is. Do a alternating frontcrawl to backcrawl to breaststroke and see how long you can go at a medium pace. Then just practice trying to increase it.

You can try isolating your kick with a flutterboard and your arm strokes with one of those pool sponges that you put in between your thighs so you don't move your legs, for practice.

Been doing walk sprints, which is essentially walking on a 3 setting for 2 minutes (1/10th mile) and then boostng it to the highest setting which is unfortunately only 10 for another 1/10th of a mile. I've been doing this for about 1.5-2 miles which equates to about 7-10 hard sprints. I've been doing this for around 4 months now.

Problem now is, that I feel like I could move it up to 1.5/10ths or 2/10ths of a mile on the sprinting, but this would definitely sacrifice distance. Since I lead a very inactive lifestyle and am unable to lift this is really the only exercise I can work my hardest on and feel rather exhausted afterwords.
on days where i don't run I have a small bodyweight routine. essentially 3x25 situps, pushups, bench dips, 3x60 oblique workout and 3 1 minute planks. It's actually really helped definition and toning more than i thought it would, more so in pectoral area.
User avatar #24032 - teoberry (01/16/2015) [-]
Two questions. First off, when I DL (mostly trap bar), I've noticed I can't really keep my shoulder blades back. This could just be because of my proportions, because even with just 1 plate a side I couldn't keep them back. Hell, I even tried just the bar for form purposes and my shoulders just don't stay back, after a couple reps they just kinda hunch forward no matter what I do. Any upper back/shoulder exercises that could help me with this?

Second question is a kind of health one. The past few days I've been on adderall (20mg) because I've been studying for my math diploma, worth 50% of my grade. The only thing I've noticed is a slightly elevated heart rate, but since it's not a prescription I don't have any consultation. Do y'all think it's safe to keep lifting as long as I go a bit easy and stay away from cardio?
User avatar #24058 to #24032 - studbeefpile (01/17/2015) [-]

#24039 to #24032 - anonymous (01/16/2015) [-]
Adderall is essentially meth, a stimulant. Stay away from other stimulants (i.e. caffeine). You shouldn't have an effect that's more than say 12 hours if it's slow release. Make sure that your are very well hydrated (drink water, no other nonsense). It will help even out the metabolic processing of the drug.

It can make you dizzy, and you are supposed to be careful around heavy machinery/vehicles. I wouldn't do anything dangerous on it. You really shouldn't see that much of a heart rate, don't take other shit with it unless you want to get yourself rekt.

Take it when you need an can devote yourself to what it is that your are taking it for. This isn't something your should be riding on a regular basis if you don't need it. Lift your weights early or late in the day, you'll be happier for it.

I got into the shape I'm in now, which is the best shape of my life so far, whilst alcoholic and addicted to diazepam. I wouldn't worry about it until you start to feel an effect, then maybe check it out and slow it down a little
#24037 to #24032 - baglesbites (01/16/2015) [-]
For a stronger upper back, do some barbell rows, face pulls, power cleans, chin ups, pull ups, dumbbell rows, cable rows... The list is really long, just focus on 2 or 3 of them such as power clean, chin up and bb row. As for shoulders, just overhead press and maybe a rear delt fly/ face pull to prevent future imbalance.
User avatar #24028 - cptmongtard (01/16/2015) [-]
Okay so I've been lifting now for the better part of a year, been making great progress and recently I started cutting. I was fat for a long time and now that I've lost most of that I love it. Takes a lot for me not to get big headed but I stay grounded. Love my success with girls recently etc but I'm starting boxing. I know that it gets you majorly shredded, great cardio and all of that, but is it a bad idea if I want to stay relatively aesthetic?
#24035 to #24028 - anonymous (01/16/2015) [-]
an hour of boxing isn't going to hurt you. if anything its gonna help build more muscle because you are using ones you don't normally use. you're boxing for an hour, not running. the most cardio you'll do is probably the 5 minutes of jumprope or shadowboxing.
#24029 to #24028 - KungFuZerO (01/16/2015) [-]
That just depends on your definition of aesthetic. If you like the lean and muscular look or you still have fat mass to lose, boxing would be great. If you're already lean and want big shoulders, defined forearms, juicy legs, etc, the cardio will probably take away from all of that.
User avatar #24030 to #24029 - cptmongtard (01/16/2015) [-]

Just keep bulking up for at least 1 year.

Hit 220 for 20 on squats. Was strong for the first 15. Last 5 was rough, but bearable. 225 will take a lot of mental hype from me, I am now dreading the squatting days, but I also feel as if my form and my general strength is a ton better. I've never felt so stable and confident throughout a set like I have been these last few squatting days.

I feel you though, I really don't enjoy deadlifting in sets of more than 10. Like, that stuff is fucking hard as hell man, I'd much rather do sets of 5 and shit. But the gains you get from those 15-20s man.....incredible.

eat around 5 small pieces of pizza and you get about 1500 calories. it doesn't really fill you up that long, and it certainly is the opposite of healthy. in fact, pizza is probably one of the worst foods for you. but if you're going for calories thats the way to do it.

If you gonna make claims like that, you gotta back it up with a little evidence.

I woke up today with what felt like electric pain running up and down my back.
I have no idea what happened.

You're trying to wake up from the coma. But your body is fighting it, even though the signs are all around you that your reality is false.

Why won't you wake up? Your family misses you...

Fuck 18 reps. I got 335 for 20 MOTHER FUCKING REPS.

Holy Shit.


Now it's time to do my favorite thing, and start peaking. Time to grab a new one rep max, boys.

Did a bunch of cable pull downs afterwards. Got a little bit of a pump.

Ahh, bloody shin syndrome. My personal favorite is the inner thigh scrapes when your my shorts get pulled up during sumo. Great work, hope you smash the 500 barrier

Me too man.

But yeah, I've been doing sumo, and I'm definitely getting a taste of that.
