Hello, thank you all for reading, and if you so kind, for helping. Kind regards to all from Colombia (although the people running the website hate latinos for they reduce us to being mexican or brazilian or argentinian in nationality) and I hope you are all starting a nice 2011.
I have been going to the gym for 2 years now, but I have gotten big from doing dips, pushups,pull ups and chin ups in various ways (Kipping pulls/dips, clapping pushups, etc) with added weight. The gym doesn’t work for me.
The thing is that I was fat, like, chubby wobbly fat, like a Sumo, and dropped 65 pounds (34 kilos) since I began training. I have gotten confidence and I do not look bad, I look good, with strong arms and so, but not like I wish, with defined, chiseled pecs and abs and muscles.
I cannot go slow, I can at best count 1 second going up and 1 second going down and not do pauses, at least not at the bottom going from eccentric to concentric phase. I like hitting more than 12 reps, more between 15 and 20, and I do it using a backp[ack with 35-45 pounds, no other load and rep range or speed helps and gets me the pump feeling, or growth and I have tried.
I want to ask if you can hit a certain figure tyupe with bars. I don;t want to be lik a Dorian yates or so, but more like a Van Damme figure, more of a fitness or a gymnast or thos ripped, muscular heavy middleweight to light heavyweight boxers…
Can that be done with bars or not ? If not, should I take the offer to use creatine, oxandrolone and others to get that big ? What is the most big you can get with bars ?
Hope I can get some good help…peace and God bless you all…
