Was referring to this one:
By pushing yourself, i am referring to intensity. Not multiple sets past a momentary failure when you haven; even tapped into your xisting set of muscle fibers. You’re able to 'go past failure" and liuve to tell about it mainly because you have not really experienced failure yet. You’re not even using your muscles in an all-out effort in the first place.
If you read Trev Smith’s BFT, you’ll see how ‘going past failure’ means a hell of a lot more for a guy with sme years of training than for you. So yes, what i am referring to comes with experience. A regular 5x5 will help you out as long as you throw your callipers away, eat properly focusing on just gaining strength and come back to BODYBUILDING once you have some base and have learnt how to use your muscles as well as what movements work for your body and in what range of motion.
Nohign wrong wth IA’s routines either as long as you are able to consistently add weight for an extended period of time. If you monitor body composition on his program, you are going to fail.
ok thats what i thought you might have meant. about the program i’m following it just how he said and im not using the calipers so thats all good. Thanks for the advice though

That was a pretty refreshing thread, and it screams david1991.
David - no more hand holding. At this point you have been given way more than enough advice to succeed. You shouldn’t even have questions. Things do not need to be as exact as you think. The next thread you start, I plan to take a virtual shit all over it.[/quote]
i havent really been on here much actually and that thread is over 2 weeks old. i am making things simpler now thanks to the “virtual ass kicking” here and the help from guys on that site lol
David, you’ve crossed the line. If I knew you in ‘real’ life, I’d have kicked the shit out of you by now. Sometimes, that’s what a guy really needs: a good, pulpy pummeling to get their head on straight. I only read the first page of the IA thread, but I can see where it’s going; where every thread you’ve started here goes. The Big Nowhere.
Serious question: How fucking stupid are you?
And stop psoting in the Bodybuilding Forum, you are the rankest amateur and should treat your posts as such. Also, weren’t you supposed to not post for a few months or some such? Shouldn’t you be lifting heavy things?[/quote]
honestly…what the hell? if you noticed i actually havent been posting on here much. the only posts i made were 1. about sleep which is totally unrelated and just wanted advice because i couldnt sleep that long and 2. this thread asking if you guys thought hiring IA would be beneficial for me. asking me how fucking stupid i am doesnt help anyone
you guys said to make my diet simpler: i did
you said to stop asking so many questions: i did
you said to stick with a good solid routine: i am
you said to focus on getting bigger and stronger: i am

David if money is remotely an issue don’t worry about hiring Wesley and stick with your current plan. It IS WORKING so don’t do anything to change it until it stops(and you run it by me lol) Keep doing those 2.5-5 lb jumps on the bar week after week and don’t miss meals and you will be damn proud of yourself a year from now.
All you are going to get on these boards is more conflicting advice and opinions and build up frustration because people are telling you that you are doing things wrong. Stay the course and come back a year from now and laugh in everyones face because you made the best progress of anyone on this thread.
(Progression + consistency) x time= bigger badder leaner David
thanks a lot Scott, i appreciate it. and i will make sure to continue on with what i am doing, i’ll make good progress with this routine and when i stall i can deload for a week like IA suggested. i’ll make sure to run any thoughts about possible changes by you first.
If anything, hiring Wes will give David here a reason to listen to ONE person instead of the thousands of different things he is getting from being on these boards. The kid needs some focus.[/quote]
that has a lot to do with why i asked in the first place. not only would i get great advice but mentally i’d know i was doing the right thing and could get help from this one person. as first mentioned by tiribulus though I feel Scott is doing that for me.
