  • As for the whole "stats" thing, I've always been lower body dominant, and get most of my strength from my legs and core, and hadn't been as good with upper body workouts. My best bench ever was 315, and I'm nowhere near that, and don't even know how long it'll take to attain that. But I see the "stats" thing similarly to the way killxswitch does. I've always been the go to guy for my friends when they need help moving things around, even when I wasn't working out. My body just naturally has a lot of muscle mass, and right now all I'm doing is trying to get rid of the extra.

      You know, you can easily do both.

        2. Health
        3. If you have the above, what do stats matter?

        • 1. Sport

          3. Health

          Don't really care outside those 3. Sport is certainly the most important reason for me though and the rest are just nice bonuses.


          Props to BK on the sig!

            just for a hoppy, or a form to compete. its like saying why do sports matter if you arent having a career or helping ppl with it. its just a hobby and most hobby can be argued as a waste of time.

            • About ten friends of mine and I have decided to head to Puerto Rico for Spring Break 2012.
              So I've started "Project Puerto Rico", where we all get back into a hardcore workout regimen.
              Essentially, it's a "Get your beach body ready" with some friendly bets (buying dinner) for certain goals.
              Who's gained the most muscle mass, highest bench, etc...
              That's obviously between the guys, excluding the wifes and girlfriends.

              I'm pretty excited bc being a parent to a two yr old, being a college student, having a pregnant wife and being active duty TAKES UP A LOT OF TIME.
              I was going to the gym probably twice a week.
              Since I've started Project Puerto Rico, I've gone to the gym at least 4 times/week.
              My biggest issue now is that I have a stress fracture in my right leg that's gotten worst.
              The Dr has forbidden me from doing anything that's not walking.
              No BBall, running, jogging, skpping... nothing... so I've picked up swimming.
              Holy ****! I've only swam for fun, not as a cardio workout, that **** whoops my ass.
              I like it though 'cause it makes me feel like I'm actually accomplishing something
              (unlike the bike or elliptical)

              Puerto Rico... I'm coming home, baby!

                    Building your body builds strength. IDK how it's possible not to get stronger while body building.

                        My impression is that you should lift for strength at first. Once you've built a solid foundation you can move on to the BB bodypart split workouts. Jumping into a BB workout right away isn't going to do much because you don't have the strength to make any decent gains yet.

                        • Hey, I'm looking to get into a workout that focuses/ puts heavy emphasis on explosive lifts.

                          Any suggestions?

                          I have a workout to get cut, one to gain mass... Kind of bored with it all, I feel like some explosive lifts would liven things up, help my overall athleticism, and get me more cut.

                          • Been a while since I posted in here, and since I did I've gained significant amounts of weight. My heaviest was about 6 weeks ago at around 255 when I decided I'd had enough of that ********. Over the past 6 weeks Ive been on a really limited diet and doing intense cardio and lifting weights daily. I've lost around 19 pounds so far but Im looking for any advice whatsoever about losing weight. Right now I'm about 6'2 235 and I'm looking to lose about 40 more pounds, so any advice on losing large amounts of weight, especially in concerns to diet, would be greatly appreciated.

                              If I were you I would kind of combine those three aspects into one workout if you are tired of what your doing. I don't necessarily have a workout I could give you per say but doing stuff like cleans, working with kettle balls, jump squats, explosive push-ups can all be added into your regular workout. Or even try putting a twist on the some of the exercises you already do to make them explosive. Example could be if doing a dumbbell push press, why not try a squat jump and push press. Experiment with some stuff!

                              If you were to day of just explosive stuff I'd recommend looking into some good plyometric exercises.
