Message from Suomi Stronk in Fitness #lifting
Currently shovelling PB in my face like an animal
Hahaha I've been doing between 3-4k calories a day I'm back up above 140lbs from 132 about 3 weeks ago.
Seems like way too much to me. You're doing oly lifting 3 x a week too? What's the point.
get strong AF is the point
Recovery time is paramount.
Won't work if you have no recovery time.
My messages are duplicating and taking forever to send
I give you props for getting in there 5x a day doing strenous days like that. And hell if you're the genetic 1% and it works keep at it. Props.
But for most it wouldn't be optimal.
I am the 99%
Thanks for sending out the discord for lifting. Haven't been to the gym in a few months but decided today was the day to get back into it. Much work needed but one day at a time.
That's the exactly right attitude brother, and we're all here to support you jumping back into it. Glad to have ya.
It helps that I'm a thinner guy so I don't have any fat to work off, but the "skinny lil bitch" look isn't what I want to see in the mirror anymore haha
@Krypto- OH I feel your pain man. My peanut butter and whole milk budget is off the charts. Start tracking your calories. If you're anything like me you'll start eating way more to try and hit your goals.
I eat really clean and only drink water other than milk with my fingers so I'm gonna have to mix it up. I'm gonna gain it's just gonna take a lot of prepping and dedication. Let me know how it's going for you, maybe we can brainstorm and find a good ratio.
Milk with my dinners hahaha
Try peanut butter, oatmeal, whole milk, and chocolate whey protein shakes. Throw in a banana for a little extra flavor. I do about 24 oz of that after every work out and I've slowly but surely been gaining weight. I started at 132 and now I'm consistently above 140.
Squatted 325 for 3x5 and benched 245 for almost 3x5. Hoping to get up to 400 lb squat before the semester ends.
you guys are getting to me... I need to get bigger! you just wait! I'll outlift you all! just wait
Hah, if you want
You looked like a solid dude in one of the pics i saw of you tide
am a lanklet though
pic mightv been in the mcgoyver server
how tall ?
squat leverages rnt the best, 6,2
ah yeah. Damn. Suomi and I are 5'9 manlet squat master race.
you damn manlets...
After I cut, Ima just do stronglifts 5x5 for awhile
I have a tendency to overtrain all the time, so ima do something simple like that, and just eat
Honestly though I think I could 1RM 405
My knee would just kill me
What's the criteria for it? I'm hoping to 3x5 405 by end of the semester.
I think I could probably 1 rep it already too or pretty soon here.
Either way, You're all on. First unofficial IE mine's better than yours lifting competition is a go.
Might as well go for the triple. Bench, squat, and deadlift. See who can get the highest weight 😎
