Anything and everything bodyweight.

Don't know how it is over there but murica they want you to be able to do everything bodyweight plus about 90lbs, that would be the ideal marine/navy seal.

From what I've seen, most of the training involves lifting or dragging a bunch of 20kg sandbags.

Dieting. Extremely lazy piece of lard here who used to be obese, and I only control my intake of calories to stay healthy in terms of weight and bodyfat%.

Running is good if you want to have a nice blood flow and lung capacity, though.

Dieting.
cardio is a myth and the only thing its going to get you is good at doing cardio.
Great for your heart and overall health.
bad if you want to lose fat.

Don't matter if you run 100 miles a day if you still eat like shit don't it? You're gana eat when you're hungry so unless you want to starve, start eating right.

No nigga, 1st off to get anywhere the intensity has to be high for the cardio to be burning calories. But even in a high intensity cardio like swimming you are burning more calories because of the cold water then the vigorous movement.

Burning calories in ANYWAY makes you hungry, you know what happens when you're hungry? You eat. Now if you're going to only change and do cardio but you are still eating mcdonalds and hot dogs all day, well great those 17 miles you just ran? You ate it back in your post cardio meal.

I walked into the gym I need day and a powerlifting buddy of mine was doing 5x5 paused, beltless, no wrap squats with around 450. He had a bland look on his face and I asked him if he had a competition coming up and he kind of just made a weird noise that I think was a yes. Peaking seems fun

Been working on Anderson squats recently and I've seen some huge improvements. Using 225 for my main sets now and my ability to stay upright and my quad strength has improved immensely. Plus squats feel way smoother and no more knee irritation.

RDLs have also been progressing extremely well have implementing a pause in the bottom at the greatest stretching point, worked up to a fairly easy set of 265 for 6.

Legs are seeing size gains as well.

Rewrote a 2500 character paragraph about this feeling of "forever small" about 3 times now.

Just gana post pictures of my arms and back instead.

Give me feedback, I want to know where you guys think I would place in a middle of dead ass nowhere teen natural bodybuilding competetion.

I went to one and the "competetion" was limited. I live in the middle of nowhere and no one struck me as someone on roids and the only people who looked even slightly like they lift were 5'4 and had no idea how to pose.

Not gana actually compete until a year from now but I want the harsh truth of where I am now.

It's time to consider a lean bulk. From what I've gathered you already watch what you eat with a lot of detail, so gaining 1-2 pounds a month will yield almost zero fat gain.

Yeah I was considering lean bulking actually.
The problem with that though is the only steroid I can get my hands on at the moment is dbol, and dbol is notoriously a bulking steroid and one of the best at that. So to work with it I have to bulk if I want 100% output.

I can lean out pretty fast though.

Do you actually work your brachialis when you work arms?

That would help you immensely in your arm size.

Fair enough, I was just trying to give you something that other comments didn't touch on.

I would still recommend doing work for your Brachialis though. It's a muscle people overlook and it can easily add another inch or two to your arms and increase the look of thickness. It's helped me out immensely personally.

Yeah I feel you, I would have posted me flexing but I thought you guys would be tired of seeing me flex arms all day.

I do brachialis training, hammer curls and rope curls are my two strongest exercises, is there any other exercises that are brachialis like that because I need to hit it from different angles now.

Rope curls are by far the best. But you shouldn't train them for strength. It's a slow twitch muscle that responds to high reps and high volume.

I do 5 sets of 20 reps with an extremely slow cadence, with around 30-50 pounds at the most.

Yeah my cable machine is fucked and lies, it goes up to 200 which I can curl and tricep extend for reps which I can barely bench 200 for reps so idk what the fuck that is.

When I first started rope curls I used to do them for high reps and low weight but most of my body seems to be responding better to high weight and medium-ish reps (8-10), maybe because I never trained strength before.

You'd be right to think that if you were actually something special. You're not big at all dude, you look like a swimmer that did some rows and one or two curls. The fact that I've seen plenty of teens more advanced than you means nothing, because you're not advanced. I'm just being honest with you. No one is here to just tell you how good you are, that's what your mom is for.

P.s. do you squat? Or train legs at all? No evidence has ever been seen to my knowledge.

When I get happy with my pose routine I'll post a video in the gay board, I don't normally put legs in here because alot of you are powerlifters or non-bodybuilding sports and prob don't want to see an 18 year old twink prance around in some skimpy underwear.

My problem with what you are saying is that its you saying it. That and I know I'm not the biggest, and I know I'm not the leanest. But at my fairly popular gym I'm the biggest lean 19 and under person I know.

Fairly specific I know, but if it will win me a medal I'm all for it.

I'll take you seeing "plenty" of people more seriously when I get other answers. Plus I got another cycle and another year before I enter a natural bodybuilding contest.

"another cycle before I enter a natural bodybuilding competition"

You're a fucking dickhole. I know drugs are common when it comes to "natural" bodybuilding, when guys are like 25+, but are you seriously gonna go up against some actually natty teens, who actually put in time and hard work, while you're taking gear? You are a pathetic, shitty human being.

If they honestly believe they could win without gear in a bodybuilding competetion regardless of age then they clearly didn't put in the research, time, and effort I did and I was going to beat them anyways.

You think I woke up day 1 of lifting and was like "JUICING THATS HOW I WIN", it was a steady decline of "wow everyone I look up to and love is on roids and every single person close to my ideal body does gear" and then it was "wow literally everyone in this show and that show is on some kind of steroid" until I realized the sport I loved wasn't about genetics, it was about the work you put in to knowing what you're doing with gear and working out and dieting.

Think about it this way, what's more fair, being born right and winning or being able to train correctly on an even playing field and winning.

steroids level the playing field if everyone is on it, sure genetics might help a bit here and there but nothing compared to natty lifters.

I think you underestimate the amount of gear in small, local, amateur shows and competitions. This goes for bodybuilding, powerlifting, and any other strength or physique based events. People can and will win these local events that they do for fun naturally, some who train like freaks might even beat the assisted lifter on gear who train like dog shit. I'm not saying you fall into the dog shit category, but you might want to compete in a tested show after progressing a bit more and not taking away titles from recreational competitors

The thing is bro, I feel you.
But a gear makes so much of a difference, you literally CAN'T train wrong on gear, because you feel like you NEED to lift for hours and hours. And even if your form is shit, and even if your genetics are trash, and even if you do everything wrong your muscles will grow 2, 3, 4, 5 times faster then anyone else naturally.

A good assisted builder will beat a shit assisted builder, but a natural builder will fall miles behind even a semi assisted trash builder.

They call it "natural" but you can't test for that. Just hope. So if I don't win it, someone else on gear will win it. I train harder then anyone else my age, gear or no gear. I diet, lift, research. I eat, sleep, and shit bodybuilding. So in the wise words of Rich Piano.

"whatever it mother fucking takes."
That's what bodybuilding is about.
And I'm going to do just that. Whatever. It. Takes.

Its not my fault someone else isn't willing to.

I'm going to be 100% honest and frank with you here, not to put you down, but because I don't want to have negative shit on this board and I think we can all respect each other and share progress here and get along, and I would like to see you eventually become brought into the group and accepted.

There is a reason you get received poorly on this board by many users. Now it may be different for everybody, but personally I just don't approve of you getting on gear before you even turn 20, I think you made a huge mistake doing it, and I think that you weren't seeing great progress and turned to the easy road to try and see quick results. Whether that's true or not only you know, but that is my perception. You also can come off as pretty arrogant in terms of your knowledge, which I suspect isn't quite as advanced as you think.

I understand your argument and why you say you decided to get on gear, but I disagree with your entire mindset. Most successdul models, bodybuilders, athletes, are going to be on some sort of "supplementation", but that shouldn't automatically make you jump to that as well. I have several friends who compete who look fantastic and have been lifting natty for oily a few years than me, one who has won three physique contests. You don't have to be on gear to do well in bodybuilding as a hobby or side career. Personally I also think you're a bit young and naive. I'm only a couple years older than you, I'm not trying to pull that card .

But that being said, I do think you can do well and I think you have a decent beginners knowledge along with a good work ethic. I just disagree with a lot of choices you've made.

"received poorly" is just studbeefpile to my knowledge, I like to have a bit of banter with everyone here. I don't outright hate anyone here even if they dislike me.

Now I never said I made bad progress, from what I've heard from every other person I've talked to I made relatively amazing progress (which is no surprise considering my starting position).

And even the people who sell me my gear tell me they would never have thought about doing it before 20 ish.

But here's the thing, everyone I ever looked up to in a fitness way, arnold, bradley martyn, calum von moger, even mike o'hern despite him being borderline retarded he's got a great body, all the evidence points too and even arnold admits he started gear in his teens from 16-18.

Obviously I am not saying everyone should be juicing at age 18. But if you're goal is to be the top 0.000000001% of the entire planet in terms of amazing fitness physique, then you better not be scared of needles and you better have started in soon.

People will say steroids is bad, and people will say they are even worse when you're young, but I mean the sheer amount of mass and strength I gained from doing the most beginner bottom tier cycle... I mean I knew something was going to happen but I expected it to with hard work and dedication. Me sitting at my desk playing video games gave me a pump, me jerking off gave me a pump. Breathing was like a pump. I mean fuck gear was just like the best constant workout in the world and usually people need to stack 4-5 things to get even close to that.

Being a teanager is already like doing roids, I'm just adding some for maximum gainz while I can.

If I am doing core exercises such as russian twists, decline sit-ups, etc. which involve holding weight in my hands, what is the most ergonomic method to use more than 45 pounds? The heaviest single piece of equipment available to me that I can think of to use for ab exercises would be a 50 pound kettlebell.

As I typed this, I realized that I can just use a dumbbell, but I'm still curious to hear what other methods there are (if any.)

Unless your goal is to do more weight instead of build abs just slow the exercise down, focus on contraction of the abs.

I doubt you can do 45lb russian twists slowly for more then 15 reps, but if you can you are probably strong enough to hold 2 25s or 2 45s. Dumbells also work.

My goal with these exercises in particular is purely to strengthen my core; I am not purely concerned with the hypertrophy of my abs. I have not tried to do that many reps of especially slow russian twists with a 45, but I'll give it a shot.

The main reason I asked is because I performed decline sit-ups with two 45-pound plates the other day and to say they are unwieldy is an understatement. They were fairly difficult to fit in my hands when put together, and they would get in the way of the movement unless I held them a specific way. I figure a dumbbell would help quite a lot in fixing both of those problems.

Thanks for the input!

If your grip isn't strong enough for that, work on doing more squats, deads, and rows. They'll help with building a strong core and deads and rows will give you a death grip.

Lifting, walking, running, any form of exercise does "pretty much" fuck all for loseing weight.

Stop eating so many calories if you want results.

You could sprint 15 miles a day but that extra cookie will still fuck you. (obviously over stating but seriously exercise burns nearly nothing compared to just straight changing diet, but you should do both if you want permanent results)

Look up HITT training

If you really wanna lose weight (Fat) then you should do a combo of running and lifting
Lifting will have an afterburn effect on burning calories.
Also the biggest thing is your diet, staying in a caloric deficit
