Any meatheads on Crunchyroll? Anyone who watches animes/reads mangas after working out? Won't be surprised if there aren't any If so, why and when did you start working out? Do you still work out? Post your PRs.

I started working out when I was 16. I'm 18 now, turning 19 real soon, so been going at it for a little over 2 years. I still work out and I do it pretty frequently since I play football during the summer.

My PRs as of now:
Bench: 320 lbs
Squat: 415 lbs
Deadlift: 500 lbs

Nice PR's! Just be careful as a young guy maxing out... You're still growing!

I lift. I don't bench and I don't do 1 rep max's for deadlift or squats as I don't use a weight belt.

This is one of my sample workouts:

Squat 15x 440
Extensions 6-8x 300/270 SS Leg Curl 3-6x 200
Leg Press 10x 900
Calf Ext 6x 700/8x 630
DB Incline Fly 6-8x 100/90
Naut Fly 5-7x 240 SS w/ Dips to failure
Close Grip Pulldown 5-7x 240 SS w/ Wide Grip Pull Up to failure
1 Arm DB Row 9x 110 SS w/ Bent Over DB Curls
Rear Overhead Press 8x 140
Naut Reverse Laterals 8x 190
Breathers 10x 70/10x 55
DB Roman DL 8x 110

I lift regularly. I started when I was around 23-24 but I didn't really know what I was doing. The main reason I took lifting up was because where I moved to I didn't really know anyone and so I didn't feel like playing basketball with people I didn't know. Oh, and I was a fatty. Glad that's over with.

As far as PRs go, I've never really tried to max out at anything though from time to time I will go for lifts in the 3-5 rep range. The last time I tried to lift in that range my squat was at 365 for 5 reps and my deadlift was at 405 for 5 reps. I typically workout by myself so I don't dare try to do heavy barbell bench presses without a spot. For presses I just use dumbbells primarily.

Solid workout routine. Oh yeah, I'm making sure that I only try maxing out once a month. This is just an overall workout I assume? Any workouts that hit legs/lower back? I recently got into deadlifting and it's turning out to be my favorite out of the three and I want to get stronger obv. I'm doing sets of deadlfts for 3-5 reps, t-bar rows for 8-10 reps, lat pulldowns for 8-10 and good morning for 8-10, that's pretty much it. Any tips/suggestions would be great.

I used to do weight lifting in school and it was pretty fun. But nowadays, I only do exercises that don't really involve weights.

So you're more into body weight movements, calisthenics and such? I really want to try getting into calisthenics, but I'm waay too heavy for that haha.

This particular workout is a combination of full body and HIT training developed by old school cats like Mike Mentzer, Casey Viator, Franco Columbu etc, etc. What makes these workouts so incredible is when you look at the amount of weight these guys were lifting with NO REST and for 20+ reps it's like And as you probably know HIT has become very trendy again in the last decade

I would suggest doing your deadlifts at the end of your leg workout if you don't already and see how that feels. You won't be able to lift as much, however you're likely to feel a better stretch of the appropriate muscle groups that should be accomplishing the lift as they will be compressing more oxygen than at the beginning of your workout. IMO, and this is just through personal experience, DB deadlifts provide a deeper stretch and allow you to get a great calf blast while engaging your core and thus your lower back in order to maintain balance.

My best advice is to train intuitively! Looks like you're on the right track already, keep it up!

Yeah. I read this book about gymnastics exercises and it got me interested in learning that. A lot of static exercises they do. I'm not sure if you can, but if a heavy person could do these kinds of exercises, they'd be super strong.
