    I don't know this guy, but I hardly believe you need to bench 405 to get those pecs. My max on bench is around 160 and my pecs are not a lot smaller than his. I think they will be the same at 200...

    About a week ago, I measured my bodyfat and it was like 13.5% which could be more or less accurate. After training, I measured myself again just for the sake of it and guess what, it was now 15.5%......

    I'd like to get to 165 before starting the cut, but I'm already above 160, so I guess the difference wouldn't be huge. What I really want is to be really cut (around 8-9%) within the half of July....

    145 lbs and almost 6'3, you probably have two sticks rather than legs. I've always been made fun of my legs until I got to 150 and I'm only 5'9. Even now at 160, my legs still look a bit smaller than...

    A week ago, I was with my friends and they didn't believe me when I told them my bench 1RM is around 160 lbs, since I don't go to a gym and I workout at home (the same as you); this is mostly because...

    Splitting the workout in several sessions?

    Hi everybody, I'm sorry for the title but I didn't know how to name this thread in a better way.

    C'mon dude, in the evening I weigh 4-5 lbs more than in the morning (sometimes I managed to get to a difference of 8 lbs) and I'm almost 100 lbs lighter than you. A 6 lbs difference is nothing when...

    The only straight fact I have is that I didn't grow for 4 years as I lifted and I started growing again when I stopped lifting. Is it a coincidence? Maybe, but should I take any risk?
