i want to start "working out" but i really have no idea wtf im doing
Put weight on the bar and if you can lift it increase the weight until you can no longer lift it
If you can't press 95 pounds then get a gun and kill yourself or start tucking your cock until you can get a sex change.
but seriously how are we supposed to know? Are we talking about some skinny nerd who was president of his high schools D&D club or someone who did manual labor on a farm all his life?
D&D crew signing in.
everybody's is different.
it depends on genetics & other activities
i've known guys who never have been near a gym who could probably outlift half of F&N, and I;ve know some who couldn't outlift my 3 year old godson
fuck the last thing I would do would be READ THE STICKIES that outline these things
oh and if you put quotation marks around "working out" like that, you are probably "gay" and also "fail at life"
Start with the bar. If it's too light, add weight?
Pick up DB's, if they are too light or heavy, grab a different one?
start with the smallest pink dumbbells. you dont want to hurt yourself. every week go to the next size up.
not much......I started benching 95 and it was a struggle. thank god I didnt have to tuck my cock back tho
Stickies, and see if a friend will go in with you
my 125lb gf does that and shes been working out for like three weeks.
I took a friend of mine to the gym and this is a kid who was a lineman in HS and a soccer goalie (yea..picture a 200lb dude who could do flips and shit) but has done nothing but drink heavily and sit on his ass for the past 2 years. He got fucking crushed by 145 on the bench. His GF was there and 'ed.
It was awesome and now he wants to jump on the bloat truck.
That's an odd number to start with...was he too macho to only attempt just one plate? He felt the need to add a 5lb?
summer before freshman year of high school, we maxed for football and i crashed on [email protected]
He didn't start at 145. He had no clue where his strength was so he just followed my warmups.
how much does a bar weigh?
More than you can lift, pal.
J/k, typical barbell weighs ~45lbs
Ahh. Sorry to offend you with such a trivial question?
If u want to ask a lot of stupid questions (I know you're new), either read our stickies or ask them all here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/forumdisplay.php?f=10 Lots of newbies in there
Asking them in OTF&N will just get you lol'd at
so how much of a tool am i going to look like struggling to bench press 100 pounds?
