Re: Bench Press

If you can't lift a weight without help, you are trying to lift too much weight. Go back down to a weight that you can handle completely by yourself. Strength training is not about lifting more weight (at least, it shouldn't be) - it's about getting stronger.

Re: your favourite routine and exercise

On another note, I think "5 x 10" could be one of the most underrated set/rep schemes around. Looks so simple but it's so brutal. It's amazing how you just seem to die after the third set especially. Quite humbling. KPj It'll make you grow. I credit the BBB volume for making my backbone disappear b...

If it were me, I'd hit him hard with SS for the month that you have him and not even worry about the diet.

Re: TL:DR - change the breakfast. more eggs. spinach. proper

Hi there! :) I think you are off the mark. Keep it simple. Stop counting calories. Stop incorporating bread and or cereals into every meal. Drop the milk, too. Try to eat a pound of meat product a day and 2 pounds of non-starchy vegetables. Start lifting heavy things and putting them down again. May...

Is there a good reason why you don't want to just fold everything into a two day workout, Upper & Lower Body(Squat) on Sunday, Upper & Lower Body (Deadlift) on Wednesday?

Levis- Look up the following exercises: Barbell: Squat Deadlift Press Bench Press Do these, do them heavy, and eat a lot more things that have a face. And don't worry about gaining a little bit of fat. This is the recipe for getting big and strong. As for your trainer - if he is anything like 90% of...

10 mins warmup SLD cardio

10 mins alternate 1min/1min level sprints

5 minutes cool down SLD cardio


-----

Felt great, the running helped loosen up a bit of tightness in my lower back. Running sprints was a lot easier at 190 lbs.

Re: Low expectations

In other words, at 270lbs, 6' 3" and maybe a 150 lb bench 5RM, would you work to get stronger or leaner ? I won't say you are that out of shape to begin with. If you are anywhere near 20%, all you are is some shrugs & lateral raises away from looking like a brick $h1t house in a shirt. lol But seri...

I think your gym is great and I think that hearing the excitement in your voice when you talk about it is even better.

I don't have a lot to add, except.. I would be quite leary of FitDay's calorie used estimates. They seem a bit high for me. Cliff I had a gut feeling about that. I eat a lot of meat, so I tend to calculate to lbs on FitDay - does a pound of chicken really have 1600+ calories? Depends on which part....
