    Default Calling all Lifters

    Whatup fellow gym rats. This'll be my personal lifting journey thread, I'll include my stats from when I started seriously getting back into it 8 weeks ago, where I'm at now, and every Friday I'll update them as a way to keep track. If you're serious about lifting, feel free to post your current stats and keep track of them as well as the weeks and months progress. It's important to keep each other motivated as we continue our fitness quest for whatever it is we're trying to achieve, whether it to put on mass, lose fat, become stronger, or any combination of the three.

    Starting Weight: 202lbs
    Current Weight: 207.5 lbs
    Time Running Current Program: 8 weeks

    Deadlift Start: 225 1x5 (I do a pyramid on this. 2 warm-ups increasing weight, then one 1x5 working set, and 2 more sets decreasing weight after that)
    Bench Start: 145 5x5
    Squat Start: 185 5x5
    Bent-Over Row Start: 155 5x5
    Skull-Crusher Start: 60lbs 3x8
    Curling Start: 30lbs 3x8
    Standing Push Press: 75 5x5

    ....8 weeks later, What I just did successfully this past Friday.

    Deadlift: 345 1x5 and 315 1x5,
    Bench: 170 5x5
    Squat: 255 5x5 @90 degrees, I can do 225 5x5 ATG
    Bent-Over Row: 195 5x5 (slow, controlled movement)
    Standing Push Press: 135 5x5
    Skull Crusher: 80lbs 3x8
    Curls: 40lbs 3x8 (very slow full range of motion movement on the way down.. almost like a negative, I was surprised at how I really only need 3-4 sets of controlled curls to feel a great pump in them)
    Isolate. Escalate. Penetrate. Again and again.

    At my best:

    Bench: 1 rep 265, 6 reps 225

    Current (been slacking): 4 reps 205.

    Will get back to 6 at 225.

    I am 6'2 and weigh 210.

    BTW, when I benched 265 I was 185 (ya, I was pretty thin but it was a good lean). Thin is in baby.

    Please! That's good what you're doing but remember if you want to get ripped and have a nice body do less weight more sets and reps! Trust me this is the key!

    ^^ Hey Sam, great to see more and more people interested in lifting weights and leading a healthy lifestyle. I'm actually an Exercise Science Major, and I've not only conducted my own studies regarding muscle growth as an assistant in a laboratory at my University, but I've read and reviewed over 100 studies and articles based on these studies written by PHD's in the field regarding muscle growth and protein synthesis. From my research and readings, I've come to learn that there is no one prescribed way to get ripped. Everyone has different body types, their bodies pack on muscle or lose fat at different rates depending on factors from something as complex as your gene type to the intensity in which you train. For packing on mass as quickly as possible, a 5x5 Strength Based Routine including Squats 3x a week, Benching 2x a week, and Heavy deadlifting once a week will not only help you slap on heaps of muscle mass through the use of progressive overload, but will also vastly increase your strength as well. If anyone would like to see my routine, request it and I will post it up. If the program you're on works for you, then by all means continue on it, and congratulations on your achievements, keep it up! Cheers.
    Isolate. Escalate. Penetrate. Again and again.

    diets a huge part of it... it actually makes up 80% of getting ripped. you can lift whatever you want but if your diet isnt good, not way will you get ripped. doesnt matter what you lift, if your aim is getting ripped, diet is key

    THIS^


    without diet you won't get any bigger, and just being ripped yet no size, is not good
    you need to have both - fitness model style

    also as for what works best to get bigger.. in my opinion its a powerlifter/strength routine.. and shocking muscles, i mean i sometimes go on and do 8-12 reps with good form, then the next week i change it to 3-6 reps of not bad form, high weight and i see more results

    oh and don't forget Patience :P.. can't expect to become huge in a week :P
