You can get shredded but it'd be very hard to get BIG

2018-02-22 01:30:51 UTC  

@Warren H The FFL workout will get you in amazing shape if you can make it work for you. No gym needed. (If you can, lifting is still great and you should get a membership)

2018-02-22 01:36:18 UTC  

This is for the days when I don't make it to the gym. I do workout with weights regularly. Thanks for the suggestions

2018-02-22 01:36:47 UTC  

What is the FFL? @BigBadSaxon - ID

2018-02-22 03:19:04 UTC

2018-02-22 03:22:19 UTC

2018-02-22 03:31:53 UTC  

By rest I guess only lifted once yesterday in the am lol. Also @Nick-NJ I made sure to fix my softish knees today with 430 dl triples and no issues. Thanks for the heads up tho

2018-02-22 03:55:47 UTC  

Good stuff m8

2018-02-22 04:24:57 UTC  

You compete right Nick?

2018-02-22 05:20:34 UTC  

Finally starting to figure out the snatch. That lift has been giving me trouble for weeks

2018-02-22 05:20:51 UTC  

It's taking forever to get it to "click"

I’m having trouble getting gains. How much should I be hoping for in a month? I seem to be stuck at 150 lbs no matter what I do

2018-02-22 17:49:59 UTC  

@peytonT yessir

2018-02-22 17:51:28 UTC  

Nuclear, I’m kinda stuck between 160-165 and I’m 5’7. Just get strong as fuck then go into bodybuilding training and force feeds yourself

2018-02-22 17:53:09 UTC  

@NuclearReactionary gib more info. How much do you weigh? How much are you lifting? What program are you following if any

2018-02-22 18:13:29 UTC  

You gotta eat big.

2018-02-22 18:13:48 UTC  

If you aren't putting on ANY weight, you are not eating enough. It's that simple

2018-02-22 18:14:32 UTC  

If you are 150 and fat, that's a different situation.

2018-02-22 21:02:58 UTC  

Not fat, just not really gaining weight.

2018-02-22 21:04:44 UTC  

@Nick-NJ I weigh 153 right now. I’m not following a program. I just have a set of adjustable dumbbells and a bench right now. I lift 3 times a week, rotating between muscle groups.

2018-02-22 22:09:11 UTC  

@NuclearReactionary Start recording your daily calories and weigh yourself to find your basline, then add approx. 300 calorie surplus to gain weight. If you are eating a caloric surplus you will gain weight. Track in an app like fitday. You also need to be following a program and recording your sets/weight so you can see that your progressing.

2018-02-22 22:11:30 UTC  

If you arent tracking your weight numbers and calorie numbers so you can adjust them and doing it by "feel" you likely wont make the progress you want.

2018-02-22 22:12:32 UTC  

@NuclearReactionary For reference, I'm a naturally slender guy too.

I gained 20 solid lbs after following the Starting Strength program.

Like @Brandon Ironside- ND said, you need a REAL program, one you can keep track of, and chart your improvements, and you need to eat more than you presently do.

2018-02-22 22:14:53 UTC  

Ok. I am keeping track of my weight numbers, but I will look into a program.

2018-02-22 22:15:24 UTC  

I will also look into tracking my caloric intake.

2018-02-22 22:16:38 UTC  

I don’t have a barbell 😩

2018-02-22 22:17:18 UTC  

This is what I have for the moment.

2018-02-22 22:17:54 UTC  

Gyms do. ;)

Or,
I got 2 barbells and freeweights from Craigslist, for alot less than you'd expect.

2018-02-22 22:20:02 UTC  

Maybe I’ll get a barbell this summer, but for now I have to make do with what I got.

2018-02-22 23:11:32 UTC  

called a gym membership, nibba

2018-02-22 23:29:47 UTC  

Mark Rippetoe is the shit

2018-02-22 23:29:52 UTC  

And also funny as hell

2018-02-23 06:01:25 UTC  

Ok, dumb question. Is there a right time of day to weigh yourself or does it only matter that you do the same time every day?

2018-02-23 06:30:30 UTC  

Best time is probably right when you wake up

2018-02-23 06:30:42 UTC  

But mostly it's about doing it same time every day
