1  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.

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.

LAck of lat width and chest thickness is what fucks many people up in this pose.

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.

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.

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...
13  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...
14  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?

From memory he was already 200 pounds at 14.Ive met chocolate faces who were huge who knew nothing about weight training.

how in the hell is this stupid shit so funny LOL.

I dont get get Ahhnold wasn't more bloaty from the Dbol he loved  Huh

That bloat mostly comes from diet... they ate very low carb diets back then which meant they didnt hold as much water...

18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dorian Yates "4000 Calories is the lowest I ate pre contest" on: September 08, 2013, 09:44:28 AM
he also got pretty fucking fat during some of his off-seasons, i question wether he really needed that much...I recall hearing him talk in a recent youtube video that he realized towards the end of his career it was a mistake to eat that much as it meant that he ended up having to cut for much longer to get to low BF levels again...

having good shoulders is really a lot to do with your clavicle width...no amount of drugs food or weights will change that.

21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: how about do 16-25 sets of flies for chest, skip the pressing on: August 12, 2013, 05:54:39 AM
bench pressing for big pecs is about as efficient as squating for big calves.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: how about do 16-25 sets of flies for chest, skip the pressing on: August 11, 2013, 10:51:56 AM
my chest barely grew at all from benching for years... dumbells, barbells, inclines,declines wide grip close grip...i did everything... wasnt till i started getting stronger on pec fly machines/cables did i actually get some pecs.  Never understand why people think its a good chest builder the function of the pecs isnt a pressing movement, the tris and delts are doing nearly all the work.
23  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: how much can you dudes db row? on: August 10, 2013, 06:15:01 AM
You can move a weight or feel a weight. I train mostly by feel these days, and rest very little between sets. My top set of DB rows usually is with 75 lbs, doing full 8 reps and another 15 partials in between those reps. Rest time is usually 15 seconds in between sets. On my move the weight day which is once a week, I will do 95 lbs for 2-3 reps, 15 seconds rest for 15 sets. That workout is designed to hit a totally different energy system then the feel day. This is designed for power. You won't get much size doing 2-3 reps.

DB rows in particular was an exercise where it was very hard to feel the back working when the weights got heavy. I never got much results going a lot heavier.

Nearly everyone i see do dumbell rows does them wrong.   The trick is to pull up and BACK to the hip in an arc like motion...you will doing like 1/3 of the weight this way but this will actually make the lats do the work and not the mid back/arms.

haah tell that to paul dillet,the heart warming castle story


Genetic freak Cheesy  He may not have been as methodical about it as Dorian to write it all down but he would have been prgressively overloading in one way or another.   Keep going to the gym and doing the same thing and the weight you are using is gonna get light to the point where you need to add weight, reps, sets whatever to actualy work the muscle hard enough to force new growth...and you can only add so much volume before it becomes detrimental. His weights when he begun training would have looked a whole lot different to when he was at his biggest, no doubt about that.

I think the problem a lot of guys make when it comes to progressiv overload they try to add weight too quickly (usually an ego thing i think where everyone wants to look the most badass in the gym) form goes to shit, end up using every muscle but the one they are trying to train, reps too low, get injured etc..  As was already state you cant just add 5lbs to your bench each time, but you do need to find a way to expose it to a stress it hasnt already grown/adapted to handle.    I know a few guys like to state 'but bro im using 200lbs less on my bench and now my pecs are far bigger and more muscular than when i used to train shit heavy'  If you actually analyze whats going on there when he was lifting 'shit heavy' he used momentum,bounce, tris instead of pecs and whatever else to get the weight from A to B his pecs hardly got worked at all so ofc you are gonna look better now. Its about progressive overload in a way where you allways have good form get a good pump in the area that you train...  This is why the advice 'up the dosage' often does work (to an extent) your on 50mg dbol now, take it to 100 and what happens over the next few weeks... you're using more weight for the same amount of reps with the same good form on all your lifts...you're curling dumbells 20lbs hevier stict and your biceps are gonna be bigger for sure.

Also its important to actually pick fucking lifts that work for you to progressively overload to attain the look you want..i mean its great building up to a huge deadlift but thats not gonna do shit for your lats..likewise with squats for many its a better glute builder than it is quad builder.. pick lifts where when you are done the target muscle has a huge pump/burn and is all swolen the next day and progressively overload those bitches.

dude looks damn good, what's his height and weight?

i weighed all of a buck 52 in my ripped pic and i'm thinking that the most that i could possibly weigh that ripped would be a buck 70 to maybe a buck 75


He's not that big, just the illusion of low bodyfat, small bones/joints good lighting a pump etc... IIRC i think he said he was around 190 at 5'9-10.  He'd be a good 20lbs lighter than that if it wasnt for the drugs though.

RE progressive overload, anyone that says it doesnt matter doesnt even understand the basics when it comes to muscle growth.   Go watch some interviews with Dorian Yates where he talks about how he has records dating back to when he first started working out where he would write down every single workout and try and beat each one in some way next time... he compares it to like building a castle and adding one brick at a time.
