You love him because he’s more opinionated than Mr Popular (again minus the knowledge or physique) You need him because…well thats what we’re here to find out!
So HaveIron…what’s your story (you know you’re dying to tell)? How many years in the IRON Game? What’s your traing like? What’s your PR’s? Please put it all here and let it rain down hypertrophy on any or all newbs willing to listen.
So I ask…how much iron do you have?
And how much of it do you lift?[/quote]
Thanks for your interest and I apologise for my late reply. As I stated before giving any advice, I am a complete noob. I was never ‘called out’. I voluntarily posted pictures of myself. As for ‘years in the iron game’? About 3 and a half months. I have also posted what I lift, right from the start. And consistently used self-depracatory humour. As for ‘need(ing) me’, I feel honoured however the moderators have decided that many of my comments never get posted. I guess I’m in the naughty corner.
What’s my training like? I’ve mixed it up a lot. For a while I was lifting 7 days a week. Currently doing high rep days and low rep days 4-5 days a week. I do front squats instead of back squats and I’m trying to teach myself Olympic lifts and variations.
My PR’s? I don’t go for PR’s as my body isn’t up to 1 rep maxes in Squat/DL yet. Here are my current 4-6 rep working weight sets:
Well below parallel squat - 165 lbs
Deadlift - 285 lbs
Bench Press - 145 lbs
Thanks for your interest. Quite happy with my DL progression but squats are lagging. Shifted to front squats to help correct muscular imbalances. Bench press progression is a little slow but still squeezing out some noob gains. Current bodyweight is 192 lbs.
BTW - You can check my hub for all my forum posts, find the answers to all of these questions and correct some of the misapprehensions you have.
Other poster: I don’t ‘aspire to look like Jack Dempsey’. I was trolling the BBer’s mirror gazing thread for a laugh. ‘Where’s the muscles?’ one said. Christ it’s pathetic. Fucking daffodils.
