“What’s your current height, weight, and general fat level? I’m not asking for a bodyfat percentage, but how do you look - pudgy, average/smooth, a little lean/some definition, ripped and putting us all to shame?”
ha. I look average with still a little pudge, but nothing like I was before.
What does your current training look like (days, exercises, sets, and reps)?
MWF I’ll do a compound upper body push (bench/dips, etc), a compound upper body pull (rows, pull ups, etc) and a compound leg workoud alternatng between knee dominant and hip dominant (squats, deadlifts, Romanian deadlifts, etc) Usualy either 4x6, or if my shoulder is messed up 3x8-12. I do intervals at the end. and steady state cardio on my off days.
And, for reference, what’s your strength like on some of the basic lifts - squat, deadlift, flat bench press, overhead press, row, pull-up/pulldown, etc.?
I just used a one rep max calculator for this:
Bench - 222, squat - 391, deadlift - 222, row - 220. I’m 5’7-9 if that matters.
Also, back in 2011, you had a thread that said “So I read that book and I fell in love with the total body HFT. I have to try it!”, referring to Chad Waterbury’s ‘Huge in a Hurry’ book. Based on your thread a few days ago, I’m going to guess you never got around to trying it. Correct? That’s two years of wasted time and missed muscle-building opportunity. Just sayin’.
Yeah, as I asked in my recent post, I was just afraid it might be overkill, but I don’t gain much muscle right now anyway, so I might just try it.
