    The sweetspot is inbetween. im no expert or anything but from what i can gather lower (3-5) reps is for strength building and higher (8-10) for hypertrophy.

    Okay thank you I'll increase/decrease the reps to 8! Yeah, I thought 10 seemed a little aggressive too, I was DYING when I was working out today doing 10.

    Good, just make sure your form doesnt suffer from it. Decrease your weights rather. I was out from back workouts for a month after bad form on deadlift. Not worth it.

    I've gained about 20lbs since beginning to obsess over my hair loss. It sucks. I try to focus on improving my waistline but all I have to do is examine my hair in the mirror and all motivation evaporates.

    I recently dropped 6 of the 10 I had gained

    I just made a few changes to my diet and it's coming off.

    I hope you figure it out.

    I was so nervous last Summer and Fall. I responded moderately well to meds this took a lot of stress off but yeah I get that feeling.

    Been going strong with the lifting game for a little over a month now, slowly making gains. I've had a few people tell me that my face is looking more "chiseled" so it looks like things are going well. I can also finally fit back into 32 waist pants again and I'm fucking pumped.

    This is the new routine I have been following;

    1505689494385.png

    All of these beginner routines seem the same to me (e.g., lots of compound exercises) so I think I'll be fine either way. I was considering doing a "brospilt" but I have very little time to work with and like the simpleness of this program.

    This is my "goal" body

    I know it's bad to constantly change workout plans, but I stopped the one I was doing since I heard too many stories of it making your thighs #thicc while you have a week upper body (i.e., too squat heavy). I completely forgot that @kj6723 wrote a really nice PPL work out plan for me, so I have been using that over the last couple of days. Working out 6 days a weeks. Trying to looksmax as I'm tired of being a skinnyfat dude and so I can sleep with attractive women.

    I'm not going to lie, since I have been working out I have been feeling great. Not just physically, but mentally; I feel like I have a lot more energy and think more clearly. Probably just all of that T going through me.

    this is what i try to tell the depressed "disfigured" members of the forum, but they think everything is an indirect shot or an attempt to make fun of them. Even if you dont gain any mass or muscles whatsoever, working out is great in so many other aspects.

    This is actually decent but pullups as well would be nice.

    Do you think it would be worthwhile to buy one of those door pull-up bars?

    according to me the best way to achieve a good physic without too much effort is to focus on shoulder lats and deltoids .
    you will build a massive frame , and a v taper , that the average joe don't have .
    No need to focus on pecs and arm like the noob .
    If you don't do steroid ,upper pec is impossible to focus ,
    and if you focus too much on pec , it will target too much the lower part and give a bad look ( rounded pec , instead of square )

    great exercie are pull up for lat, lateral raise ( for shoulder ) .,
