Me and a friend was working out today - and although he’s only been working out for a few months - he’s got that natural giant look going on.
As I was doing DLs, I asked if he wanted a go, and tought him the basics. The guy lifted 440lbs, perfect form, at the end of a 2 hour workout. He complained about a knee injury, and didn’t want to go further (although he most definately could).
I suggested that he should get into powerlifting or something like it, but he’s afraid of looking bulky. The main reason he’s working out, is to look “tighter”.
Anyway… While 440 is “weak” for a committed powerlifter, is it considered exceptional for someone who has had basically NO strength training? Or just strong?
Please hand me some arguments that could help him away from those terrible “fitness” exercises.
