Hello fellow T-nationers. Just a Star Wars and Godzilla nut job trying to become Huge strong guy. To see my current routine and diet, http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_body_training_performance_bodybuilding_beginner/new_guy_wanting_advice_on_workout
My reasons to get rid of my gut:
2. Strength and Muscles
3. I NEVER WANT PEOPLE TO RUB MY BELLY FOR GOOD LUCK EVER AGAIN!!!!! I HATE THE BUDDA JOKES SOO MUCH!!!!!!
4. Whoever my wife will be, I want her to desire me for sex after we are married together. (Yes, I'm still a virgin and waiting.)
5. In particular, I want cannonball delts, big yoke and lats, glutes that make women want to grab, and Tree trunk legs. Want the whole thing of course, but those bodyparts I like in particular.
The type of bodies I admire and would like are something along the lines of Pro. X, Jim Wendler, Matt Kroc, ect...
I welcome all advice. Please note though because of being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints, I will not drink alcohol, Tea, coffee, nor smoke tabacco or drugs. I am well aware of the health benefits of Green Tea, but I will not drink it and ask please do not suggest anything contrary to my beliefs. Caffeine is okay and not against the word of wisdom despite what you may here as far as rumors. Also, I am not here to debate politics and religion.
Please forgive me for not having videos or pics yet. I am not here to boost. I will get some eventually. I am well familiar of the rule "Videos or it did not happen".
Track diet progress
After platuing on current routine, do Madcows 5x5, then either 531 or westside for bodybuilders.
My food today:
small bowl of egg salad
two scoops of whey isolate right before dinner
Dinner: 1 and a half plates of Spaghetti and meatballs, two small pieces of French bread with butter, and a bowl of plain salad.
Also I switched back to barbell bench. The gym I go to has a set squat rack with a height perfect for my body for benching so I do my benchs from bottom up. I am too scared to get pinned.
I am a bit odd compared to others on this site. For example, I feel chest in barbell bench presses almost exclusively while feeling delts and tris in dumbbell version. Side Lateral raises make my biceps sore even at 5lbs while feeling nothing in the delts and that includes using the vince gironda trick of pouring them like water. The only thing I feel my side delts is wide upright rows. When doing leg presses, higher and wider on the leg press hits my quads while lower on the leg press hits my hamstrings.
I like deadlifting but I always feel it in my glutes, quads, lower back, and upper back.
My delts in general are stubborn but luckly OHPs hit them though they do not like to grow and get stronger.
Benching is easy for me.
Low-bar squats I can't seem to get the hang of. I have never felt this stretch reflex that Mark Rippetoe harps on. High bar is more natural for me and I like knowing that depth is reached since all it is hams sitting and resting on calfs. I videoed myself and showed it to my competitive Olympic weightlifter friend and she said my squat depth was good. Just get a little tighter.
Keep mind I am not blaming SS for my failures at excuting it. It was my fault.
