Dumb question: what exactly is plateau?
yeah brah, i feel like my arms are gettin too used to normal dumbbell curls, so i'mma switch things up and lift bricks instead
muscles won't know what hit em
You're an idiot.. This doesnt even help your argument just makes u look stupid.. Its called different workouts, work different part of your muscles.. U can do the same routine over and over, your muscle will get used to it.. So u change up the routine meaning u can change up how many reps, different amount of sets, do super sets.. Do totally different workouts in different positions to work the muscle more.. Go do a standing curl for a month same way, same amount reps and sets.. Then switch it and go do an seated incline bicep curl, let me know how your biceps feel after...
iirc, there have actually been studies that show people on roids who don't lift and just bum around all day actually make similar mass gains to those on roids who lift daily
not gonna bother finding it, just food for thought
you are following a myth.
they target different areas of the muscle the bicep or the quadricep etc all have different areas or parts. Like the Quad has the adductor longus biceps femorus (dont quote me on this I forgot the exact terms) from a total of 4 parts. Take chest for an example you can do decline/incline/flat bench dips for shelf, chest flys for the inner chest etc.
" yes, muscles are adaptive, but as long as you constantly have both of the above, you should never plateau"
This is pretty fucking dumb you don't know what you're talking about you just like to make up your own "science"
"and for your biceps example; IF you are talking about that "pump" you feel afterwards; a pump is only a rush of blood into your working muscles. it's just that, it doesn't mean you had a "great" workout. and i'm genuinely curious because i don't do curls; how would switching help? i assume they both just target the biceps"
If you get a pump atleast you know your muscle is getting worked
" i'm genuinely curious because i don't do curls; how would switching help?"
How would switching help??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
I doubt you even lift (properly) at all
enjoy your pizza rolls you fat fuck
Not even going to go back and forth, cause there is trainers and bodybuilders who swear by having different phases in their routines to get u better results.. They have doctorates, masters and other degrees in all sorts of different areas, so ill take their word on it.. Also fatbro your wikiepedia explained what i was saying, throw on some bigger weights, change your sets and reps, there u go, your muscles will go into shock and might have just broken your plateau..
Also i hope u are joking when u say u 5' 8" 315 pounds... Even being big boned wouldnt put u at that weight, thats just being fat! Reason i hope u are kidding cause then i would say how are u even trying to suggest anything..
Also one thing i will agree on is the the pump..
"In one common method, weight training uses the principle of progressive overload, in which the muscles are overloaded by attempting to lift at least as much weight as they are capable of. They respond by growing larger and stronger. This procedure is repeated with progressively heavier weights as the practitioner gains strength and endurance."
"Periodization in the context of fitness or strength training programs is the scheduling of provisions for adequate recovery time between training sessions"
lol??? in before "LOLOL IT'S WIKIPEDIA". have you read ANY text on sport science or weight training? mel siff's "supertraining" (arguably the most respected text on sports science ever written, give it a read sometime)? or even rippetoe's "starting strength"? these 2 concepts are like the entire foundation behind any successful exercise program. or do you only read those articles on bodybuilding.com? simple question, if progressive overload and recovery don't build muscles, what does then?
"if you get a pump atleast you know your muscle is getting worked" - so again, are you saying a pump means you had a good workout? an increase in blood plasma to the working muscle is "good"? it's just that, increased blood. please find a scientific article that proves otherwise.
i honestly thought you were pretty knowledgeable about lifting up until now. damn, if you wanna get personal we can. aren't you like 145 lbs? it's cool, i used to weight similar years ago when i was a twig. but unless you're less than 5'7, it's hilarious how you always ask people if they lift now, when you probably weigh the same as most female volleyball players at my school.
and 5'8, 315 lbs aint fat bruh, i'm just big boned
Waffles : u guys are just internet faggots
Lol jaded its a perfectly fine idea, I swear society has been brainwashed into thinking u need all these carbs and that eating fat will make u fat. Btw I have started and am feeling good so far. Metallic taste in my saliva piss has a fruity scent. -livestok . Fuk lefty u bitch ass niggr
i'm the best mayne, i deed it
I'm back in college now. There's girls to impress, so I need to hit the gym.
Is there an all around pair of shoes (sub $100) that's suitable for both running and lifting weights? I plan to do light running ~20 minutes, and about 1 hour of lifting each session.
If it's better to get shoes dedicated to to each task, which shoes would you recommend? With a sub total of $100.
Thank you very much!
shoes dont matter lol
