This seems a little odd to me…
I a weak little shit and my lifts are really light, for example my weighted dip is only 30lbs for 7 reps and my 7 rep chin up is 10 lbs, so this would mean that i would only increase my dip by 0.75 lbs the after the first week, and my chin would go up only 0.25 lbs, leading to really low increases in these lifts by the end of the 4 week mesocycle… i don’t get this, how am i supposed to gain strenght if i’m only allowed to increase in such small increments?? should i factor in my bodyweight??
You wrote this back in September:
i want to get as strong as i possible can while minimizing mass gains… can any one help me out?
Why is someone like you training the way that you are with this type of mentality? You are that weak…but you want to avoid mass gains? Why? Why are you on a strength mesocycle when your lifts are less than most athletic high school students? Why would someone that weak not want more muscle on them? Do you understand that you wouldn’t be that weak if you gained some muscle?
How much do you weigh, how tall are you and how old are you?[/quote]
no i didn’t right this in septmember.
I don’t wanna gain mass cuz i play soccer and that would hurt my endurance.
The to the second poseter… thanks for replying, should this incorporation of body weight be done for other lifts like front squat, box squat, lunges and others that involve pushing up ur body wieght, but not for lifts like standing military press and floor press etc??
What about good mornings… should i just factor in like half my body weight, cuz i’m only really pushing up my upper body when doing this exersise…
