I wasnt comparing there benches to anyones.
Haha, mass ≠ strength
na, the olmpics uses Kilo in all weight lifting events, it doesn't matter if its in America or Europe. if its the olympics, its kilos.
I didn't say the olympics uses kilos everywhere but the US. The olympics is an international event so I was implying they use the metric system.
i bench 110 over my body weight
he bounced off his chest pretty hard tho...which helps....still alot of weight though
you go and try bounce say 300 pounds off your chest and be hospitalized...
lol if u read part of the thread...u would see that i already mentioned i can bench 335...thats 1 second on chest then up...no bounce
You do know the nationals don't use Lbs, don't you?
he didnt bounce that shit..you cant just bounce 600 pounds off your chest..it may looked like he bounced it off a bit but he didnt
i dont mean completely with no force bounce off ya chest...but yea...he did bounce off his chest..its a term in weightlifting...its a slight bump off the chest that helps u get it past beginning stage of the bench...which is the hardest part of getting it up....it worst...i remember back in the day when i was early in weightlifting i was benching 225 max....then my coach came in and made me bench it WITHOUT bounce and i was stuck as shyt lol....
dont get me wrong...bouncing off ya chest with 600 aint something to laugh at anyway lol.......but he did do it...he can prolly get 565 without the bounce
touch ya chest with it...count 1 second...THEN push...is a true bench
actually lifting heavy is the only way to get your fast twitch muscle fibers moving, which in turn will cause muscle growth. If a person were to only lift what they can do without a problem, they would be ripped and all, but lifting heavy is the only way to get your muscles growing. I dont usually go for a "max" but I do lift say 80 - 85 % of what I can handle, which is good for gaining size. stick around 4-6 reps at a weight that you can just do, and your sure to pack on muscle if your eating right.
Not fucking true.
Theres niggas who never touched a heavy weight in their life who are jacked as fuck.
I hate when niggas feed people bullshit.
I agree with P-haze.
man I aint feeding you bullshit..
these people who are jacked as fuck and aint lifting heavy are gifted genetically..
its a very simple fact when training that to gain size, you have to lift heavier weights, Im not talking about your 100% max, Im talking about 80% of what your capable of. Most people who lift light weights are usually smaller but ripped as fuck. Ive been in a gym, and have known a few bodybuilders to know how to gain size. I aint shittin you. Getting size isnt only lifting weight, its lifestyle. Eating, sleeping, and training properly.
No Good is right on both counts.
Obviously lifting your one rep max on a consistant basis does nothing for you in any exercise unless you're pyramiding to it every workout.. but it's a burn out and not really worth doing anyways regularly.. it's kinda like testing yourself, but for growth it's pointless..
I have yet to meet a genetically gifted person who was "jacked" who didn't lift weights or work in some sort of physycal job and/or train/play sports in some way.
I've seen guys who were cut up "ripped" per se with abs nice tone musculature bodies and what not, cause that was their body type... but not because they were big guys...
theres always gonna be guys were are just plain big and massive without doing shit... but they aren't gonna be ripped.. they are just big guys, large bone structure, just mass by genetics.
maybe purple haze knows some guys with freak genetics..
I know a guy who does carpentry, doesn't workout, eats whatever he wants, and yet he's got a ripped physique.
that shit is rare... sure, it exists.. but it's rare.. face it.
I know people who are wrecked as fuck, and they have never been near a gym.
The bloke Im teaching English too is one hench mother fucker. Ripped and he never works out.
Some people do naturally have it.
I call them fucking lucky twats.
lol @ ''The bloke Im teaching English too.''
See.. now thats better, that wasn't what he said.
He said you HAVE TO lift heavy weights to get jacked.. incorrect.
There are other ways to get pretty big without lifting weights, so no, HE wasn't right.
