    Default Forgive me Strike for I have sinned.

    I have been working out for a while now, and it wasn't until today that I realized that none of the lifting exercises I was doing worked my shoulders.

    My deltoids are going to get jealous of my biceps and triceps.

    Well what exercises are you doing?

    Also, with shoulder exercises do not think that going low (in terms of range of movement) will help. If you do that, it starts to involve your chest and then you are using that to boost the weights back up thus taking the strain off your shoulders.

    Just do squats forever; biceps are a joke.

    I'm the exact opposite - big biceps small triceps. Funnily enough I think you may be right about pushups. I used to do conventional 3-day bench/deadlift/squat when I was at my peak, and my chest and triceps always lagged a fair bit.

    Since then I've lost weight and stopped eating tons and even lifting for a while because of a couple of health problems, but since I started doing some upper-body stuff again, I've noticed that doing pushups makes my chest and triceps pump up a lot, certainly in a way the bench press never did. I do diamond pushups as well as regular ones though.

    If you want to do cardio you can do it in addition to weightlifting, just make sure you get enough calories to grow. When it comes to lifting weights lift heavy (as in, no more than 12 reps per set), otherwise you won't put on size. Compare a sprinter with a marathon runner.

    Seriously, weights are for chumps. It's the movement that's key, the weight just reduces the number of movements necessary.

    Low weight high rep anything is, in my opinion, better than the opposite.
    Exactly. Do the movement right, and you might well use a 5-lbs weight. Bodybuilder types...

    Just do squats, and exercises for the lower back and abdomen on that, uh, thing:

    You know, the cylinder you bend over, subsequently lifting your legs or trunk up under their own power. I suppose you could even do it on a kitchen desk if you don't mind discomfort.

    While, beyond that, it's a good idea to keep your shoulders fit, the upper back and arms get what they need from your normal daily activities, pretty much. Bulging biceps or pecs do little for your overall health.

    Health is in the muscles of the thighs, abdomen, and lower back. This is the Soviet way.

    No, Push ups don't maximize efficiency, cardiac is catabolic (actual cardio not the bullshit 2 mile runs you people go on), and I would love to get those street workout guys on a bodybuilder plan and 6000 calories.

    Do you have something to add or will it be your same misinformed gospel that has gotten you no where?

    Per the thread:

    I have the same stripped down program I give to everyone.

    It's the one I use 6 days a week, spending only 45 minutes a day with free weights

    Chest
    BP 4x6
    MP 4x6
    Skullcrushers 3x8
    Curls 3x21
    Occasionally dips

    Legs
    Squats 4x6
    kettlebell squats 4x15
    hamstring curls 3x8
    Toe raises 4x20
    Occasionaly I'll throw in an OHS or front squat

    Back
    Deadlift 4x6
    Lawnmowers 3x8
    Lat Pulls 3x8
    Pullups until failure, in leiu of that, pulldowns

    For cardio I play soccer, rugby, and run sprints.

    I used more sophistacted programs when I was powerlifting, along with cutting out the majority of running

    This is why I made the thread. I had to look up half the exercises you listed, lol.

    EDIT: I realized that working out is just like Starcraft, if you want to learn how to do it right, you gotta copy what others are doing first. You can't start making your own build orders in bronze league and expect to come up with anything but utter shit.

    Exercise more and eat better is an abstract, hollow statement with no meaning.

    ACIN please read Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. He explains this stuff way better than I could.

    I can't afford the paperback, hopefully the Kindle version also includes the illustrations.

    You forget carrying a case of beer.

    Apart from that, I share the sentiment.

    Go out cycling or running twice a week, perhaps lift some weights on another day (but not too heavy, or you'll end up with an injury), watch the food a bit, and you'll be just fine.

    Unless you're planning to do hard physical labour for a living, I don't see the need for big muscles. It's not like you have to carry a mammoth back to your cave to survive the Winter.

    I assume he's able to lift a case of 24 bottles of beer (not empty ones) and to carry it for about 100 meters.

    If not, then he should stop posting here and start to train, starting with one bottle and building up to a full case of beer
