Doing a job where you get up each day and look forward to going and doing it and are passionate about it = winning at life.

try Dips

Dips are about the only pressing move i do for chest now and i do them gironda style, great for pec/shoulder tie in, but still leaves other areas lacking.   As a bodybuilder your goal should be to isolate the target muscle as best you can and the vast majority of pressing movements do not do that for the chest what so ever.

I got more growth in my pecs from a few months of doing a well thought out crossover routine than i did from YEARS of benching (just about every variation you can think of).... benching is primarily delts and tris and the chest only helps a little.   The worst developed bodypart I see in gyms is the pecs and yet everybody benches... think about it.

Test for me = shit muscle builder, but great feel good drug... I'd prob carry on taking test even if i quit bodybuilding altogether.

jesus christ there is far worse things that can happen to you in life than losing your hair, man the fuck up.

LOL... the only reason this guy even looks remotely big in some of his videos is because he has a large bone structure... large ribcage/wideish clavicles etc.... he has virtually no muscle mass in the areas that make someone look 'aesthetic'...

this right here is what happens when you dont do any isoltation work for the 'show muscles.'   
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: should i eat more than 3000kcal per day or is that about right? on: April 11, 2014, 04:03:08 PM
depends on your activity levels... 3000 kcal a day is plenty for me to grow if im sat on my ass all day... which with you being unemployed is probably what you are doing most days now?   So should be plenty....

True to a point, yet Dorian was massive first from the old more traditional methods. Once he took on the heavy duty approach he gained even more to which i would say is more akin to the body doing something different than the same ol and that can lead to more growth. Lets also look at the train wreck he became from all of his injuries from using heavy duty for so hard and long, his body was literaly wasted from it. throw him on the trash heap he is done. probably cannot even look good with his shirt off now. Take a guy like Bill Grant who is in his 60s trained with volume still does and has a great build to this day.

Dorian was never a high volume guy really, he did slightly more in his early days but at most he was maybe what some would say moderate volume....and he got stuck training that way, couldnt get any bigger, it wasnt until he met Mentzer took what he learnt there (reduced volume further added more intensity) and applied with his own spin on a few things was he able to get bigger.   Tbh he probably could have reached the size he got to faster if he had just trained that way from the beginning.  And he only got injured pushing himself too hard when dieting down...trying to grow whilst getting lean...so there is a lesson to learnt there for sure.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Mike Mentzer on: March 19, 2014, 06:24:04 PM
Sad to say but Mike, Arthur and Ellington are not right about training. Volume is needed. It all comes down to accumulated time under tension for an hypertrophy response. So training to so-called total failure is a short cut to getting some serious tension. It is much safer to accumulate the time under tension by doing many more sets. 10 reps isn't so good for a pump, either. Start with 20 reps and by the third maximum set your reps will be down to about 12. Big muscles are good for doing lots of sets with a reasonable resistance. So that is exactly how you have to train for hypertrophy. I was influenced by Jones and company but also incorporated what Larry Scott advocated. I ended up doing about 7 total sets including warmup sets for a maximum pump. That wasn't enough sets. 6 or 7 sets with the maximum resistance is much more effective. Going to failure is okay, but not the extreme version of it. I always go to the point where no more movement is possible. That is safe as long as the muscle is thoroughly warmed up. Unless you are accumulating plenty of those hard final reps there is no stimulus for the muscle to grow further. The bigger you get the more difficult it is to get them even bigger.

And then we have Dorian Yates, who is living proof that everything you just said is compete bullshit.

Yes, the body will let you know what it needs.

LAck of lat width and chest thickness is what fucks many people up in this pose.
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold at his massivest on: January 04, 2014, 12:08:56 PM
you want better pecs = DIPS AND PULL OVER in various form.

Bench press only in full rom and controlled reps.

er no.

Pullover is a lat exercise.

and if anything you should limit the rom with any form of presses to limit shoulder and tri activation...never lockout etc.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold at his massivest on: January 04, 2014, 11:04:26 AM
For starters,most guys back then mainly pinned only glutes..............now a huge go to site for pinning is delts.

I personally do not believe that site injections help,but over time they will impart more size and roundness to delts more than any other bodypart for some reason......possibly because they contain more receptors....I`m not sure.

Better pecs=full range of motion and 6-12 reps,not sloppy half reps or 1/4 reps with a zillion pounds for a triple in shitty form.

One more thing and I know this to be a fact is that those guys had more passion for training as money wasn`t a motivating factor....ie.,they trained harder because they lived for training not a check of $1000.00 which was the Olympia purse back then.

Has nothing to do with this imo... more to do with the fact that these guys would literally do tons and tons of various flyes... cable, dumbells whatever not just as a 'finisher' excercise but as a serious chest workout...and they would do it 3x a week too.... these days people WRONGLY focus on pressing movements which is PRIMARILY a front delt and tricep excercise.   Its no coincidence that my chest was utter shit relative to my delts too untill i did boat loads of flyes instead of pressing...

Your wrong galeniko.

Most juicers and guys with great bodies don't get a lot of pussy, if they didn't get pussy before they had a great body. This is just how it works. 

your are my height actually a bit taller than me your about 6'1 right? No homo but your face is above average IMO...you have that accent women go crazy for....trust-  you'd be pulling these hot bitches either way.



The problem is most bodybuilders goto the point where it becomes 'too much' and that looks 'gross' to the avg female...or they get too fat in the offseason and never diet down which just ruins the whole look when you are wearing clothes that expose the muscle... being a naturally skinny dude i dont really have the genetics to get that grotesquely large and my hormone use just made me have the jacked+lean athletic look that I never could achieve naturally no matter what I did.

It definitely helped with women for me...the confidence plays a big part too though no doubt...when you know you look betetr than most of the other dudes around you... that shows in your bodylaguage and chicks love that...

bahaha, I have some true storys like this on nights out where I have had women pretty much put it on a plate, with me making no effort whatso ever to try and get them interested,  just my body doing all the work, so i can believe every word of this... and these were some of the best looking women you'd find on a night out too.  Litrally licking my arms before they have even said a word to me and just straight up asking me to come out of the club and fuck them... and its ridiculous once a few start acting slutty around you the rest start seeing you as one of the top picks in the place and all start trying to compete with each other for your attention and one up each other.

This only ever happened when I was abusing the shit out of tren and in single digit bodyfat and tanned too though, was summer time and at the end of a quite successful cut.... Have never been able to get my body to that level where it stands out so much from all the other dudes in the place without abusing a fair few homeones (espceically tren) Being lean is crucial though, ive been on  nights out where im a similar level muscle wise and probably if anything look bigger in clothes cos of the fat ontop of the muscle... and the level of blatant interest is much much lower.

I dont exactly have the prettiest of faces either.. although wouldnt say im ugly...im pretty avg looks wise facially..(being lean helps a ton there too though when u have a nice jawline) body alone can go a long way in those kind of social settings really makes u stand out amongst all the other dudes.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: this peter molnar dude's physique is getting more ridiculous on: January 01, 2014, 11:15:19 AM
Yeah, the long waist kinda ruins the look a bit in some poses, he still looks better than 99% of anyone who gets into bodybuilding ever will.

funny thing is that among all animal species

the biggest most mascular dude gets all the bitches


but somehow humans would not be like this


 Roll Eyes

Yes, women find strong muscular men attractive because back in the day when we were all cave man that type of man could provide protection and increase her chances of survival and have a high chance of giving her good healthy offspring that would also be protected... and that is still hard-wired into their brains from millions of years of evolution...BUT you dont need to be anywhere near that size or strength level to evoke those kind of feelings in a women.  Do you think men were walking around that size then?  Of course not, because they were not on drugs lifting weights daily.. and thus never evolved to seek a man with those kind of proportions...
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: evan centopani must drive women ABSOLUTELY MADLY CRAZY on: December 11, 2013, 03:35:34 PM
You clearly know nothing about what women want Halo.

99.99% of women find arms that muscular "disgusting".

The guy beside him is more their style.

beat me to it, but yeah...show 10 random women that picture and they will say something along the lines of 'gross' 'too much' etc etc...
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: evan centopani must drive women ABSOLUTELY MADLY CRAZY on: December 11, 2013, 03:31:16 PM
u do realize most women think arms like that are disgusting right?
