The Weightlifters Thread
 
Just seeing who else lifts on VN. I currently play highschool football and lift 4 days a week, on a lower/upper body plan. We power clean and squat on mondays and thurdsday, and bench press and various shoulder workouts on wednesday and friday. Also many people think football players in highschool are overworked, what do you all thing of this? Happy Lifting! :hi:

what up

milohimself 12-17-2010 07:44 PM

In the gym 5-6 days a week. Most important day today, legs day.

5'10.5" 225-230lbs depending on the time of day, 10-11ish% body fat (as best as I can guess)

I don't do 1RM's... Don't see the point other than lame-ass bragging rights.

Most of my sets tend to be 4x8's, I'll drop to 3-5 reps if I'm trying to put up more weight, 8-10 if I'm really feeling it.

Squat: usually in the neighborhood of 365lbs
Bench: 95-110lb dumbells (haven't done barbell in months)
Shrug: ~455lbs
Deadlift: 315

Just some general stuff, upper chest and shoulders can be difficult for me because of a bad rotator cuff and damaged cartilage in my left shoulder but I get it done.

3 days on, 1 off. I mostly do 5x5's and 2 body parts a day. Also I don't recommend doing barbell decline press, messed up my rotator cuff.

1RM's are mainly for bragging rights around the locker room. And Dumbbell benchpress... I've always heard it is an excellent lift. You like it more then barbell? why?

lylsmorr 12-17-2010 08:55 PM

Dumbbell bench press >>>>>> barbell bench.

RockyTop411 12-17-2010 09:13 PM

Why is it better?

Tell the Coach you're switching to Bow-Flex. That you want a real work out.

If I'm wrong correct me, but dumbbell uses more stabilizer muscles and is also better for building muscle mass.

Billy Costigan 12-17-2010 09:25 PM

I lift 6 days a week. I take Jack3d for my pre supp and cycle Novedex XT 8 weeks on 4 weeks off. I can bench 225 six times without a spotter. I go through a jug of Muscle Milk every couple weeks.

Definitely no on the stabilizer muscles. Muscle mass is as much about diet and nutrition as type of exercise equipment.
