I also derailed this thread completely




what are you doing for accessory movements? and how often do you switch them up? squatting will not increase your squat, accessories movements do that. same goes for the the bench and deadlift. take a sprinter for example, they don't get faster by running, they get faster by doing exercises that strengthen the muscles used while running. the hamstrings, for example.

It tastes good but there are far better protein products out there.

I guess what I need to know is which exercises to do on which days. I really dont know which accessory exercises are best.

triceps are usually what's holding back someone on the bench; followed by shoulders and back.. very rarely is it the chest.

what are you doing for triceps? try elbows out extensions, if you're not doing them already.

I will run the same set of accessory movements for 2 weeks (3 weeks max if I haven't done them in a while) and then I will alternate. I'm a nut and map my entire training cycle out ahead of time, which is usually around 6 weeks depending on where I am at. I have enough movements that I will not hit the same accessory exercise for 2, sometimes 3 cycles. For some movements, it's longer than that, but you get the point. You always want to keep the body guessing, that's why it's important to switch grips, stance, height .. etc when doing the big 3.

I recommend you keep doing starting strength, but switch up the accessories. I will come up with the accessory movements for you for one cycle if you promise to stick to it and not waiver for the entire duration.. barring you're rest and diet are on point you will see results.

You could drop all of those for triceps if you want to get your bench up.

yeah, the only muscle a kickback has ever stimulated is a clitoris.

I've been doing this one exercise to bring my squat up for a few years now. Its actually perfect, it specifically targets every muscle used by your body doing a squat, and places the correct proportion of stress on the specific muscles.

Start with the bar in the ladder or power rack approximately nipple level, if not a tiny bit higher. Walk up to the bar, line yourself up evenly on it, take a fairly wide solid grip on the bar and duck under, coming up with the bar resting squarely on your shoulders, a little below the tops of the trapezius. Straighten your legs, step back, take the widest stance that feels comfortable. Take a deep breath with your diaphragm, using the tension to brace your stomach, pick a spot on the wall higher than your head and stare. Fill your chest, reach your ass back and down until your thighs are about parallel to the ground. Go back up the way you came down. Repeat.

Deadlift,

Thoughts on adding olive oil "shooters" to your diet to add calories? If , would it matter what type of olive oil is used? (regular, virgin, extra virgin)

Already have a steady diet of blue diamond almonds, so I'm not sure if this would be going overboard.

sincerely,

Too lean in PA
