I reckon hypertrophy training will come easily to you mate as you have got the strength and the mass to easily move decent weight for reps and that’s what will build more dense, quality muscle. Pair that with loss of water and bf can see you getting in very good nick. Obvs keep a few compounds in you don’t want to just be doing fanny weights on a few machines for 12-15 reps and thinking that’s bodybuilding. Look into ‘powerbuilding’ training think that’d suit you and you’d enjoy it/benefit from it.
The big egotistical GWS is getting picked on by the minnow lol
Tbf if I had the genes to be big and strong, walk around at 260, dare I say 280 plus, I'd be all over strength training. For that I am envious of TCVD and K.
Were you both bigger lads as teenagers?
Nah mate I’d never remove all the compound stuff that got me to the size I am now
I’ll just refocus my efforts on them. I’d like to Deadlift 260kg x 12 at some point or do 8 x 8 with 220kg on Deadlift in one workout (Could do that tomorrow tbf but just never have). Squat 240kg x 8, 220kg x 12 etc etc
Shift heavy weight for a lot of reps. None of this 1-3 reps bollocks, 1-3 reps is really training your CNS more than anything
But I plan to add a lot more isolation exercises, overall volume and frequency on top of the compounds
And plenty of chicken and rice. Shit loads of it
Simple plan. But I’m sure it’ll work
Yes. I was 6’2 and 15.5-16 stone at 15
18 stone at 18
Used to eat the same big steaks and all the sides as my dad in restaurants etc when we went out for family meals when I was 7 years old. Srs
I never do any less than 6 reps on compounds these days, if I can handle the weight for a solid 6 I’ll up the weight marginally next session and if I fail 6 at that weight I’ll knock it back down the following week and aim to increase the reps I managed 6 at. Always do my Compounds first then a decent amount of volume on accessories at 8-12 (I work with top sets and back offsets, yes I know very JP and Dante Trudel and the ‘in’ thing but is actually working for me) it keeps things interesting and testing while still having a set routine if that makes sense as you never know how many reps you’ll bang out/fail on a top set and you know what you need to ‘beat’ or achieve next session. It’s a bit more of an instinctive way of training which I like as my training mentally has matured (I like to think )
Fucking man child.
18 and 18 stone. Christ.
Me 18 and just under 10 stone.
Chest, Delts and Biceps
Band crossover: 6 x failure
Band crossover (underhand to hit upper chest) superset with Front dumbbell raises (10kg dbs): 4 times through
Front dumbbell raises: 5 x 20 (15kg dbs)
Red band side raise: 5 x failure per arm
Barbell shrug: 4 x 30 (100kg)
One arm preacher curl: 6 sets per arm (17.5kg db)
Dummbell hammer curl: 5 x 20 (20kg dbs)
Ez-bar curl: 3 x 20 (50kg + bar)
Second Delt, Trap and Bicep workout of the week. Only gonna hit chest once as I can’t press, I don’t see the point of hammering crossovers and flys more than that, probs not gonna grow much anyway
Rest and big eats tomorrow now and get the last big deadlift of the build up done Saturday morning
I didn't start training until 2010 so was 36yo. I was 17st 7lbs when I started and 17st 9lbs pre-holiday in August just gone.
I know they say slow and steady gains are best but 1lb per decade is taking the piss mate
That moment you start to wonder if it’s all worth it
2lb of pure ripped, dense, striated muscle though mate!!
I'd gain that by having an extra couple of eggs and 2 large spuds in 2 days.
He must be jeffing.
