Fun Workout For You To Try


#1

Yo guys...

This isn't supposed to be exactly serious but it's one hell of a fun little workout to have a go with.

Basically Select one or two exercises per bodypart... So say for chest you obviously have bench as one of your selections.

Start off on incline and put an easy weight for you say 45% of your 1RM then... You aim for 12 reps, if you achieve these 12reps you earn yourself a heavier weight say go up in increments of 10lbs. You keep doing this until you can no longer reach 12 reps. (This is basically a pyramid.)
Then go to normal bench repeat then to decline and also repeat.

You can do this for each of your bodyparts and it's pretty fun. I was getting a little bit annoyed when I kept hitting 12 reps on deadlift but it's a brilliant way to push yourself and I didn't think I had it in me to do some of the weight I did for 12 reps...

Good luck and have fun :slight_smile:

lol i thought the same thing when i saw he admires someone with a 240lb deadlift


#7

I admire someone with a 240lb deadlift? Maybe so but not for that reason. I admire people for many reasons.

I got into T-Cell because I put on 17lbs in just under a year. My gains haven’t stopped. Maybe I say stupid shit but I get results. Good genetics I guess since I’m obviously an idiot huh.


#8

tf is T-Cell


#9

Was that all lean? I think you could probably stand to gain weight faster unless you compete in a weight category or something.


#10

To every beginner:
Don’t try to invent a new program, pick one that has been proven to work and stick with it. Making an effective program is an art and a science.
Gosh if we could put a signature in this forum I’d make mine something along those lines.

Is it just me but for your weight 17 pounds of muscle isn’t that impressive in a year.

No your right it’s good but it’s not all that impressive for newbie gains. I’ve seen better.


#13

I put 20lbs of lean on the first half of this year and I’m not in the T-cell :frowning:

Seeing stuff like this makes me feel even worse…

Id literally kill to gain 17 pounds in a year.

Ive gained 5 this year, with hard training, strict large diet and nutrition and rest.

As far as im concerned, 17 pounds in amazing. I dont care who you are.

I’ve seen people gain 20 pounds in 20 days with GOMAD. Or maybe I read wrong.
Is 17 pounds a lot for a year??

May I humbly suggest that perhaps your strict large diet is not as large as you believe?

You could, but i eat around 8-9 meals a day, usually about the 300g protein mark ( i weight 74kg) i eat plenty of wholegrain carbohydrates and vegatables. I dont particulary count calouries (a weakness i admit) but i focus on the nutritional value of each meal in a 40-40-20 composition.

haha, i have hijakced this thread hard…woops?

alright that’s the fourth time i’ve heard about gomad. I know what it is, I just want to know if a very large portion of the gain is lean muscle.

I think you all, except for maybe 2 of you and the OP are idiots. This site is beginning to get ridiculous with all the keyboard warriors. The man TRIED to come up with something while you all sit around and criticize. Who the fuck knows if it really is a fun workout to try once??

He’s obviously doing something right if he put on 17 pounds. Most idiots on this site are 135 pounds soaking wet but claim to boast a 500lb bench press and slam their keyboards with their dicks.

I think maybe I’ll try it out on my chest day, see how it goes.
