MAD will prevent any NATO/Russia war, the UK doesn't need a strong army if they have nukes. WMD's have either doomed us to our inevitable Apocalypse or have insured that we will never see a world war again.

I know.

But you also have to look at it from Russia's perspective. If the Ukraine remains under it's current government then they will take steps to join NATO, and that is unacceptable considering NATO has been placing a missile shield around Russia for decades. I can guarantee that if the tables were turned and Russia had an alliance with Canada, Cuba, and was trying to get Mexico into the alliance, we'd be acting the same way and trying everything we could to prevent being pushed into a corner.

Before March, the Ukraine was wanting to maintain relations with Russia. After the coup (whether you believe NATO had a hand in it or not), Ukraine has suddenly wanted to join NATO. It's what the Pro-Russian separatists are fighting for, they want close relations with Russia and not the EU and Europe.
User avatar #68679 - feelythefeel (08/30/2014) [-]
Well regardless, the original question is whether they could get away with completely annexing Ukraine. And realistically, the answer is no.

NATO is pretty much a joke militarily without the US. The UK and Germany have an okay military, but I don't think they could take on Russia head on. If it came down to it then I would say Russia isn't afraid of NATO unless the US is completely involved in a conflict with Russia. But with Obama showing how unwilling he is to show any kind of force or have any kind of balls Putin may call that bluff.

"OMG A CHARACTER SUCKS DICK AND IS NOT A WOMAN, CANT WATCH IT CUZ THIS ONE SPECIFIC CHARACTER IS HOMO SO STOOPID." The show sucks anyways.
User avatar #26 - marinepenguin (08/30/2014) [-]
It has nothing to do with hating gays, it has to do with them being a cop-out. Why does he have to be gay? He's been flirting with other women characters, and his whole character and background has been set. Adding in that he was gay actually detracts from his character, and is only put in to appease the gay people who watch the show.

Whether you like the show or not isn't a big deal.
User avatar #27 - robogandalf (08/30/2014) [-]
Well Gays to tend to get along with woman on an emotional level, Looks like flirting to you but could just be friendship time for them. I don't watch the show but I know he does not go making out with all the women and sleeps with em, they have done nothing with his sexuality and frankly it does not matter with him being gay or not, he is still going to be the same exact person killing zombies with a cross bow just because you feel making the hardcore mothafucka a homo would ruin a show.
You asked "Why does he have to be gay?" I ask "Why does he have to be straight?"
User avatar #79 - Conquistador (08/30/2014) [-]
>Get along with women better.
You're trying to fight one stereotype while trying to enforce a new one.
User avatar #83 - robogandalf (08/30/2014) [-]
Where in that sentence did I say "better"?
All I said was connect on an emotional level.
User avatar #84 - Conquistador (08/30/2014) [-]
You know what I mean.
User avatar #86 - robogandalf (08/30/2014) [-]
I didn't stereotype, It's been shown in researches that homosexual men connect with women.
User avatar #89 - Conquistador (08/30/2014) [-]
And on average, homosexuals are usually the flamboyant type. At least that's what's more noticeable.

Doesn't fit his character at all, and nor does the "connect with women" thing. He's distant and aloof.
User avatar #90 - robogandalf (08/30/2014) [-]
Penguin was talking about how he was "flirting." could have been the connection between a homosexual male and woman.
Sure it's the most noticeable thing but in this "dog eat dog" world, it would be smarter idea to hide all of that.
User avatar #91 - Conquistador (08/30/2014) [-]
Lol, if he just wanted to be friends with her and if it would be smarter to hide it, then why does he even bother then?

The main issue with people is that 1) It's season 4, so why would you all of a sudden make an established character gay? It will add nothing to the story other then, "hey Daryl is gay". and 2) Why focus on sexuality on a show that is more about surviving and killing zombies? It's an irrelevant issue.

Plus in my opinion it just totally contradicts his whole character in the show.

It's season four and all you know about Daryl is he seems like a redneck, had a brother, and is good at killing zombies. You know nothing else about the character and he isn't a comic book character, It could add plenty of story? Maybe they'll run into a villian and Daryl ends up liking him and spares his life? Surviving and killing zombies, There was/is a shit ton of drama and a char being gay could add a spin on things, You never know. Daryl is going to be the same person he has been the entire show, just you'll know he sucks the cock.
It contradicts nothing cause he is a character on a show that has no set in stone background you are aware of.
User avatar #31 - marinepenguin (08/30/2014) [-]
You haven't watched the show obviously. Daryl has had a set background. It's shown that he had a horrible childhood where he was beaten and abandoned by his father, had an abusive relationship with his brother, and has developed trust and relationship issues because of this. Saying that we know nothing about him is pretty ridiculous.
#39 - anonymous (08/30/2014) [-]
They haven't developed that he's straight, genius, if he's gay then he's gay, if you're so close minded and homophobic that it's ruins the show for you, then you need to get a life. Him being gay won't matter, if it even happens. It's not ruining the character, it's just adding something else to him.
User avatar #81 - Conquistador (08/30/2014) [-]
He's flirted with women before. Especially Carol.
User avatar #48 - marinepenguin (08/30/2014) [-]
I am neither close minded or homophobic. I wouldn't hate Daryl or anything, and I wouldn't stop watching the show. I just think it's unnecessary.

User avatar #35 - marinepenguin (08/30/2014) [-]
While I think it's possible that he could be gay, I just disagree with the idea that it would add anything to the show. To me it's just a way to make the gay fans happy.
#41 - anonymous (08/30/2014) [-]
It's just adding to the character, idiot. Who cares? It's the same as if they established he was straight. Straight people just assume that others are straight, but you don't know.
User avatar #36 - robogandalf (08/30/2014) [-]
You also don't know what else they have in store for Walking dead, The fact he is gay could be something more in the show later on. It's completely possible. I'm sure they don't care about making gay fans happy at the cost of making the female fans angry. (Which out weights the gay community who enjoy it)

the same shit with Doctor Who, they get these prettyboys to get the tumblr-tri gendered Tyrannosaurus sexualed landwhales wet and share all their faggy pictures etc, just the worst way to promote things, Walking dead is supposed to be this gritty edgy horror drama but it is just a soap opera for tumblrfags like doctor who
User avatar #157 - zomitlu (08/30/2014) [-]
I've watched the first few episodes of the newest Doctor Who season and capaldi is great It feels like the same show but I doubt girls will be getting horny over Capaldi so that's lucky.

I've stopped thinking of Walking Dead as a horror drama and more a shitty soap about people shouting at each other with zombies as a background plot device.

Ever since Frank Darabont was fired the show went downhill (season 2 and onwards). And I know this may sound pedantic but AMC not allowing the fucking show to use swearing has ruined the chances of arguably the best character in the comics to make an appearance in the show that reflects that of his character in the comics. They should have made this show on HBO.

it happens, Example look at MLP. i am not one of those brony types but i took it as it was when first aired with faust at the wheel, and it was a pretty charming show. But she left and it pretty much became nothing but pure pandering to the autistics and fandom, it became hollow and shallow.

Ghostbusters cartoon as well, you had this awesome amazingly written gothic horror cartoon with sci fi and throwbacks to great literature such as Lovecraft and they wanted to change direction to focus on Slimer, so Writer left, and so did a couple of the VA and it became the most basic horrid rancid thing you ever saw, The animation the scripts the dialog the direction EVERYTHING was a fucking travesty compared to the first 66 eps.

I don' think there are many circumstances where Russia will annex Ukraine outright, and if they do they can kiss just about any all foreign relations goodbye.
User avatar #68669 - marinepenguin (08/30/2014) [-]
Their foreign relations have already pretty much become nonexistent at the moment anyways. The only incentive the rest of Europe has to maintain relations is that Russia supplies the rest of Europe's gas.

NATO is pretty much a joke militarily without the US. The UK and Germany have an okay military, but I don't think they could take on Russia head on. If it came down to it then I would say Russia isn't afraid of NATO unless the US is completely involved in a conflict with Russia. But with Obama showing how unwilling he is to show any kind of force or have any kind of balls Putin may call that bluff.

I know.

But you also have to look at it from Russia's perspective. If the Ukraine remains under it's current government then they will take steps to join NATO, and that is unacceptable considering NATO has been placing a missile shield around Russia for decades. I can guarantee that if the tables were turned and Russia had an alliance with Canada, Cuba, and was trying to get Mexico into the alliance, we'd be acting the same way and trying everything we could to prevent being pushed into a corner.

Before March, the Ukraine was wanting to maintain relations with Russia. After the coup (whether you believe NATO had a hand in it or not), Ukraine has suddenly wanted to join NATO. It's what the Pro-Russian separatists are fighting for, they want close relations with Russia and not the EU and Europe.
User avatar #68679 - feelythefeel (08/30/2014) [-]
Well regardless, the original question is whether they could get away with completely annexing Ukraine. And realistically, the answer is no.

How is your diet like? I'm guessing you track calories and make sure to eat the recommended amount needed to gain muscle at your current height/weight/age.

I have a lot of time on my hands this semester and I've been working out everyday for the past 2 weeks. I'v been repeating
1. Abs, legs (main focus is abs though)
2. Chest and Back area
3. Shoulders, Biceps and Triceps
but I've noticed that I feel using my Arm muscles during focus on the Chest/back area so I should probably go about doing a upper body/leg split where I alternate? Giving my chest, back, abs and arms just enough time for the protein synthesis window, the next day focusing on legs? I really am OK with working out everyday, I truly have the time for it, I have only 4 hours of class. So basically do you think this split is ok? Most people on /fit/ see no problem with it? inb4 beginurs suldnt do so moch, no pls
User avatar #124 to #123 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
I work out 1.5 hrs each day, at home also. About to get a bench that is incline-able.
User avatar #125 to #124 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
My diet has become a bit more relaxed recently, but when I was seriously into the diet I made sure I ate 4000 calories a day and had 200+ grams of protein a day.

Now I'm probably doing about 3500 a day while eating 180ish grams of protein a day and still seeing some steady gains.

My tip is, if you aren't too much into getting HUGE and super strong, then you don't have to worry TOO much about diet, just eat enough, and avoid the ******** foods, and get enough protein without overtraining and you'll be fine.

I'll continue with training in the next comment.
User avatar #128 to #125 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
Training wise, everyone is different, you'll have to experiment (and more then likely fail horribly) with what you think works best for your body type. I'm tall, so I did a ton of volume with a lot of compound movements, and that's what worked for me for a while.

Now in my opinion with your workout, I wouldn't worry about abs, most if not all of the big movements need the abs to stabilize the movement, so they'll grow and get strong along with every other part of your body.

I would also recommend a separate day for Chest, shoulders, back, and legs. With what you are doing you are working out your triceps and biceps 2 days in a row, with workouts specifically geared towards them. Not necessary. When you do chest or shoulders you'll also be working your triceps, and on back day you'll be doing biceps.

I honestly have no experience with an upper and lower body split, but I can imagine that if you are doing dozens of sets during a workout you are on a road to overtraining. You should really work one muscle with no more then 14 total sets, that includes movements where the muscle is only a secondary mover, like bench would include working triceps.

If I were you, I would continue to do something similar like you are doing now, except cut out ab work, do back and chest separately, and dedicate one day to shoulders. On chest and shoulder days throw in a few tricep movements, on back day throw in a few bicep movements. Focus on the big lifts, I cannot stress this enough, want to see serious size and strength gains? Center your workouts around Bench, Squat, Deadlift, and Overhead press. Improve your lifts every week in some way.
User avatar #132 to #128 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
"and dedicate one day to shoulders"
Are you sure, that's pretty hard especially since the shoulder is like a secondary muscle to many of the other upper body workout and vice-versa. Most of the shoulder workouts i've done give me the biggest burn in the bicep/tricep muscle area anyways.
User avatar #133 to #132 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
The shoulder is a primary muscle, it is responsible for a massive amount of movements when it comes to upper body. I neglected shoulders with that same kind of thinking for a long time, and now that I've dedicated a day to shoulders and overhead pressing, my shoulders have grown and nearly doubled in strength. That in turn has increased my bench, making my chest larger, and my triceps larger and stronger.

The only thing that I would keep an eye on, is make sure you don't do a lot of pressing movements. Especially if you decided to do chest and shoulders on the same day, terrible programming and really **** with your shoulders, and shoulder health is something that you struggle to get back when you lose it.

Here's an example of my general shoulder workout.

Overhead press 5x5
Landmine press 5x8
Leaning side raise 5x8

That's it, and I'm an intermediate lifter. You don't have to spend 3 hours in the gym and do 15 movements to see results, those guys you see that do that tend to look the same every year.
User avatar #136 to #133 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
Well see to me that seems so.. easy I hate to say it. I feel much more soreness from like 15-20 reps + then from just 5-8, you barely even feel the muscle pain. You more so feel the inability to lift such a heavy object, I can't describe it so well, but its a totally different feeling for me.
User avatar #140 to #136 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
If you are lifting a weight that is heavy enough to where you are struggling on the last rep or two, you will still feel sore at first. Eventually you won't get very sore.

You'll have to get into your mind the soreness does not always equal a good workout. It's easy for a trainer to trash someone and make them feel like they did something, it's hard to make them actually see results.

If you do what you are doing now, you will see some results, because you are a novice and your body will adapt and become bigger and stronger. Do that consistently for a year with a good diet and you may gain 20 pounds, but then after 3 more years you could be the same weight. If you did it right and kept things simple, you'll put on 40+ pounds of weight in a year if you eat enough. Then you should gain 10 pounds at the absolute minimum every year after that. Trust me, I've seen it happen again and again, with friends I've helped train, with my brother, and with myself.

Sorry for asking so much questions, just need to finish understanding this **** so I can finally get to work without being paranoid of doing it wrong.
User avatar #149 to #140 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
Ok thanks for the advice.
So, I guess I just have a couple other questions to get me on tract.

Do you have any schedule in mind that has me working out every day? (Like I said I really have the time for it).
You said I should have one day just for shoulders, that would mean I couldn't do the split day workouts right? How would that work with other muscle groups though?
I guess this comes back to the do you have a schedule in mind for me. And what kinda shoulder exercises should I do on shoulder day if that's the way I should go, the one's you wrote above I'm guessing^?
If you are to make a schedule could you please specify the number of sets I should have (and how much should I rest in between sets anyways?)?

So far I've been doing high volume **** like I said.
Like for example on Bicep, Tricep Shoulder day I had like:
______ 3 sets to failure
_______ 3 sets to failure
______ 3 sets to failure
______ 3 sets to failure
_______ 3 sets to failure
_______ 3 sets to failure
______ 3 sets to failure

But after reading your advice and gaining knowledge on the internet, I know now that's obv not the best way to go about it.
User avatar #154 to #149 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
You really shouldn't work out EVERY day, your body will need rest, even when you are only stressing certain muscles on certain days.

I know what you mean though, because I don't like working out every other day even because I feel like I can do more. So I go 4 days in a row. Back, Chest, Legs, Shoulders, then have an off day before starting again. If you want to do something like that then you would have to lower the amount of work you would do each day, because like I've said before, over training could be an issue.

In any given workout, the general rule is to do no more then 12-14 sets per muscle group. And that doesn't mean just the primary muscles, it means the secondary movers in the lift too. So for Bench you would include triceps in there as well, along with a little shoulders (I would worry about that so much unless you are doing shoulders the same day as chest).

The only shoulder movement that I would highly highly recommend is the overhead press, although since some peoples shoulders may not be healthy that lifts pains them, if you cannot do overhead presses (which I'd bet money that you'll have no issues), I would do landmine shoulder presses instead. But make overhead press your priority, then add in a few movements (like 2 or 3) that work different angles of the shoulder (Front, side, and rear)

As for your high volume workout, never ever ever ever go to failure that many times in a workout. I haven't gone to failure in a lift for at least a few months, not once. As for resting between sets, 90 seconds is usually the rule, but I never time my rest periods, I just go with how I feel, and don't let myself lose focus or get out of the zone.

One tip I just thought of, a BIG one. Keep a training journal. Write down all your lifts, how much you do and how many sets and reps you do. Keep track of your workouts.
User avatar #155 to #154 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
OK thanks man.

So you do Back, Chest, Legs, Shoulders, Rest and repeat? Doesn't that overwork your arms because usually a lot of the shoulder/chest/back workouts use it as a secondary muscle? and your doing them 3 in a row.
User avatar #156 to #155 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
Yes that is my routine.

And your arms are not one muscle group. You can't work your biceps and triceps at the same time in one movement. So When I do back I'll be working biceps, thus my triceps get a break. On Chest day I work Triceps, so Biceps get a break. On legs both get a break. And on shoulders I don't implement any tricep working movements other then overhead presses, so they really don't get a ton of work. The days where they get the most work are on Back (and bicep) day, and chest (and tricep) day. Understand?
User avatar #157 to #156 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, do you literally make sure to work on Back and Bicep/Chest and tricep (individually) or do they just usually go together in an exercise?
User avatar #158 to #157 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
You can throw in some curls on back day, but a lot of back movements work biceps as well. I tend to make chest a tricep day as well, so I throw in some skullcrushers or close grip bench presses.

Well if you start off right (when 99% of people don't) you'll definitely create a great base of strength and size within a year. I'm actually starting my back day right now, so I'll answer your post in full when I'm finished.

(Seems like you are working out pretty late, 9:30 I'm assuming, does it make a better difference to work out earlier like 4,5,6?).
User avatar #153 to #152 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/16/2014) [-]
Nah, I just work out whenever I have the time. Between my job and school I sometimes wait until late.

"My tip is, if you aren't too much into getting HUGE and super strong"

To be honest though, I'd really like that. Going into uni next year so I'd like to get as fit is possible. Should I maybe even go above the recommended amount of daily calories and protein. I am afterall going to be working out everyday and my to put a lot of soreness on my muscles. I usually keep switching between exercises till it pains me to much to continue for the whole day.

Not necessary, it'll take years to reach the point where you will be considered an advanced lifter. If you eat any more then 4000 calories (which may be too many for you if you are shorter) you will gain fat, you can't just gain as much muscle as you want. Work to get good at the movements, then worry about size gains. Honestly I could write a book about this and I'm trying to keep this short and sweet, so bear with me if I take a while.

And honestly you really don't need to do any more then 4-6 movements per workout, depending on what you are doing and how far along you are.
User avatar #135 to #129 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
i never understood that, why do only 4-6 movements per workout when you can do so much more, doesnt it confuse your muscle. Doesn't it need originality and dont you need different movements for most muscle groups that target them specifically?
User avatar #137 to #135 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
I completely understand why it's confusing, and it's something I really struggled with until recently.

A muscle doesn't need to be confused, it needs consistent and ever increasing stress. "Muscle confusion" only prevents you from making any major progress, because adapting to a stress is what makes you get stronger and bigger, so you keep the workout the same while increasing the weight, which is a way of increasing the stress on your body. I increase the weights on all my lifts by 5 pounds every week, I've been doing this for about 2 months now since I switch programs, and I went from benching 150 for 5 sets of 5 reps, to 185 of the same sets and reps. I went from benching 205 to 230.

The absolute best way to build muscle is to focus on the movements that target huge groups of muscles, like Bench, Squat, Deadlift, overhead press, power clean, cleans, snatches, etc.

also is getting a lot of sleep SUPER important? If so I will but i prefer to get around 8 hours. Too little?
Also thanks for answering all my ****
User avatar #142 to #139 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
Sleep is very important, always try to get at LEAST 6 hours of sleep. But as long as you don't stay up til 2 or 3 every morning and get a decent nights rest every night it should never be an issue.
User avatar #138 to #137 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
Well I could do it, my only small problem is that i wont have anyone watching over me because I workout at home...
#141 to #138 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
So do I. Do you have some solid weights? This is what my home gym looks like. I can do all the major lifts and more here. And I have over 500 pounds of weights.
User avatar #143 to #141 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
Of course I got solid weights, barbell and dumbells and like i said im gonna get a incline-able bench

You ever get to the point where you lift such a heavy weight that you may not be able to move it to the proper place, a.k.a why people have watchmen?

What is your weight and height btw? Along with how much body fat you have?
User avatar #147 to #145 - lulzfornigeriagirl (09/15/2014) [-]
5'9, 130 lb.as for body fat, I'm not really sure but i'm not fat, slightly skinny if anything.
User avatar #144 to #143 - marinepenguin ONLINE (09/15/2014) [-]
I only use a spotter whenever I am maxing out on a lifts. So I don't have a spotter while benching 185, but I do when I'm doing 215 for 2 reps.

If you are confident that you can get the weight without issues then you don't really need one. You probably aren't lifting enough right now to merit concern to be honest.

No homo, can you post a pic of your arms. Or just your muscles, this sounds so gay but I'm just curious as to how ripped you are.
#112 to #111 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/09/2014) [-]
No worries bro, I've seen you on Fitness some, so I can see why you'd be curious.

I'm about upper 180s in this photo. Currently in the lower 190s now. I wouldn't say I'm ripped, but I'm trying to get there.

My goal is to reach a lean 200, and I have more fat on me now then I'd like.

What supplements you on?
User avatar #114 to #113 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/09/2014) [-]
I only take Whey Protein
User avatar #115 to #114 - donnybergerstory (08/09/2014) [-]
Oh. I just started taking 100% Whey Protein. I used to take this: www.gnc.com/GNC-Total-Lean-Lean-Shake-BURN-Chocolate-Fudge/product.jsp?productId=33755596

Then I dropped 15 lbs and I am onto whey protein.
User avatar #116 to #115 - marinepenguin ONLINE (08/09/2014) [-]
That's cool. I've only every used Whey, I'm not going to start trying to actually slim down until I hit around 210 or if I put on too much fat in the process. I'm not sure how big I could get while staying natty though.

User avatar #103 to #102 - marinepenguin ONLINE (07/29/2014) [-]
Well I'm flattered! I'm sure I could help you, what are you wanting to know exactly?
User avatar #104 to #103 - derpityhurr (07/29/2014) [-]
Well I wanted some advice on a few aspects of the workouts ive been doing the past month
I've run a mile everyday before lifting as a bit of cardio and to warm up; I don't run longer (which i easily could) because I dont want to be fatigued for my actual workout
Do you think this beneficial? I'm aiming to be a bit more muscular and to lose my excess fat
Also, I wanted advice on the exercises that I've been doing; should i post them all?
User avatar #105 to #104 - marinepenguin ONLINE (07/29/2014) [-]
Well first off, running a mile before lifting isn't a terrible idea, it'll help condition you and keep your cardiovascular system in good shape. BUT, jogging is hell on your knees and if you do too much you can actually impair your ability to gain lean muscle mass. So if I were you, I would do about 3 or 4 40 yard sprints for a warmup instead. It'll condition you, burn fat, builds muscle throughout your body, and isn't hard on the joints.

As for the exercises, post away.

Couple tips here. You have a TON of volume, and it's really unnecessary. You should really only have 4-6 movements per workout max, usually centered around one big lift, which you don't seem to be doing any of those besides bench. So say for back, I'd do Deadlifts, then pull-ups (instead of lat pulldowns), bent over rows (barbell preferable), and some kind of rear delt movement, and then I would probably add in one bicep movement.

You also seem to use a ton of machine work, does the gym you go to have any free weights or barbells? Those will have more carryover to real life and a higher amount of strength and size gain compared to machines.

Lastly, switch it up from 4x10 sometimes man, throw in some 5x5 (considered the best combination of strength and size), 5/3/1 (second best), 10x3 (yes, 10 sets of 3, lots of size gain, lots of strength gain). Toy around with the sets and reps, stick with one for a few months and see how you grow. Find out what works best for you. I'm really tall for a lifter so 5x5 tends to work best for me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - derpityhurr (07/29/2014) [-]
I feel like I should haveve included this; I do all these over 5 days, with back on Monday, abs and shoulders on Tuesday, legs on Wednesday, chest on Thursday, and triceps and biceps on Friday
Do you still feel that I should do less movements?
User avatar #110 to #109 - marinepenguin ONLINE (07/29/2014) [-]
Yes, I had assumed that you split it up.

Like I said, you only really need 4-6 movements centered around one main lift. Any more then that and you risk overtraining, especially when you work out 5 days a week. I would know, I used to do what you are doing, except I went 6 days a week. After awhile I would start getting hurt, my lower back, then my upper back, then my hip, or my knee. Now that I toned it down I have absolutely no injuries and I feel better then ever.
