Lower weight and higher reps to achieve a painful burn instead of heavy weights and fatigue was when I started achieving growth results. Remember, lift fast up until you pinch the bicep, and slow all the way down to stretch the bicep.
Btw is 3 times a week too much for legs?
If it’s painfully burning as you lift. I usually do legs about two times a week. Usually the day before I work out the muscles I want to grow most.
man biking last week fucking upped my cardio so hard at the gym today
it was sick
I usually spend about 1-2 hours at the gym.
So if I decide to work out, for example, legs and chest on one day, should I do legs first then chest?
I don’t think it really matters if you’re doing them on the same day
Today was about 50 lbs more on squats and a few less reps and then running.
Finally gained 2 pounds to put me at 170 lbs. For the last 3 years, I've used machines both at home and in my uni rec center. Been running anywhere between a mile to 2 miles every other day, trying to keep fat off.
Also it's a good way to get my reading in. 3 hours into Mein Kampf.
Now I learned a lesson to not take all of my vitamins right before a workout.
@Sartigy Weight lifting is actually a better method of getting fat off than cardio. That doesn't mean stop doing cardio because it is a lot better for your lungs and heart than lifting. Plus the more endurence you have the more you can push it in the weight room. When looking to take off fat it really comes down to diet. I would recommend fasting or keto diets. Fasting being the better option unless you have to physically work, then intermediate fasting.
@Maxon To answer your question if doing legs 3 times a week is too much, I would say no. If you are really willing to bump up your legs in strength and size you could do them everyday except for the weekend if you'd like, but realize you have to be in a fairly good calorie surplus. Being in a calorie surplus will help you recover faster and get faster gains. This also means having quality sleep, being fully hydrated, and stretching/foam rolling after every workout and before bed. Realize you will have to push through soreness later on in the week.
@Felix oh yes, I know, thank you for the reply. I run mainly to improve my cardiovascular fitness. I however do not recommend fasting.
looks like we are taking over this
Today was just running.

Gonna do some running up in these mountains here
Running in the mountains at a much higher altitude is painful.
^ beautiful man keep up the good work !
My muscles are way tighter than they used to be when I started working out.
Shit pays off.
Maybe soon I can start making some arm size gains.
