go to google and search "Rippetoes starting strength" and have a shot of that routine mate!

Then research the diet part of this forum and ensure you get 5-6 meals down your neck every day

Appropriate training routine + good nutrition and rest = solid gains!

Why would that be funny? It's obvious all you want to do is laugh. Which isn't really that entertaining to me if I'm honest. I'm finding it hard enough to get bigger and stronger without people joking about it.

Not been on here in a while. Just came off my second D-Bol cycle yesterday. After my 1st cycle I got to 12.5 stone and kept it all. Now I'm at about 13st 5, would ideally like to keep above 13 stone. Did bench on Monday, 3x8 80kg, did deadlift for the first time in a few months Friday and squat, 4x8 80kg squat, 4 reps on 150kg DL, and 1 rep on 180kg. Was quite pleased with myself after that. Will post pics in a couple of weeks after I've got to a weight and stick to it!

Thanks for looking

Another quick update. Started a new training plan. a 5x5 more strength based routine. never done anything like it before and i cant feel it, only started this week so not going to be silly and say im gaining already. heres an updated pic, off-cycle, and 2 weeks out of PCT, at just over 12.5 stone, struggling to keep weight on due to shabby diet and shifts at work nackering eating pattern.

Heres an updated pic

Bit of an update. Well settled into my new gym, been there I think nearly 2 months.

Did legs today, given up on freeweight squats as they hurt my back, and I can't keep my form if I start putting anything above 70kg on.

Hack squat

2 warm up sets, no weight. 2 x 10 20kg/side

Leg press

1 x 12 64kg/side. 2 x 12 69kg/side

SLDL

3 x 10 65kg (dont enjoy these as they pump my lower back more than any other exercise)

Lying leg curl

2 x 12 15kg/side. 1 x 12 17.5kg/side

Standing calf raises (superset toes in and toes out)

2 x 12 number 5. 1 x 12 number 6

Seated calf raises

3 x 15 30kg/side

Leg extension (squeeze at top of last rep per set for 5 seconds)

1 x 12 15kg/side. 2 x 12 17.5kg/side

Thanks for reading!
