Increase my strength. Not bothered about how much muscle I have to show off or how I look. Just want to increase my brute strength.

Wouldn't it be better if the current stat in question was posted also? so we could see what kind of gain you're hoping for.

I want to be benching 60kg incline & dumbells (currently doing 50kg max), increase my overall body size, especially chest and arms (really for my tattoo - cant get a tattoo yet as my arms are not big enough!).

Oh yeah, and I also want to get able to knock down buildings with my fists like Ken in Fist of The North Star!

Currently on a 2 week break, I've been overtraining :( No real gains recently anyway. I'll spend this weekend revising a new regime. :)

:eek: A 52.5kg improvement in 3 months? Does your skin turn green when you're angry?


lol

I've always been told that I'm stronger than I look which I suppose is better than the reverse. I've actually only achieved the 92.5kg twice at the end of a workout. I've attempted 4 times in the last month. I've pushed myself quite hard recently in the last 5 weeks and hit upon a bad patch now. My strength has improved but I'm really not seeing any gains, I've not gained much muscle mass or definition so I'm on a 2 week break to reassess myself. I've obviously been overtraining and I'm quite angry at myself for letting it happen.

I can comfortably bench 80kg 3x8 but for my max (1rm) I had my brother spot me because my bench is at home so I usually train alone. I use York gloves when lifting that I didn't when I started last November and because of the increased grip I can bench more. I'm 1 week into my break but this morning I attempted my max bench and couldn't do it. :( It's to be expected, then I tried 85kg then 80kg, I did the 80kg fine.

It's a bit of a pain swapping all the weights around for different exercises but I can live with it. It's only a matter of time before I buy a gym membership, I'm quite limited to what I can squat without a proper squat rack. And I'm maxing out what I can put on the butterfly and leg extension as well.

Currently:

Height - 6ft
Weight - 15st 3lbs (213lbs)
Waist - 34"
Arms - 16.5" - flexed
Quads - 26"
Calf - 17"
Chest - Need a bigger tape measure!
Body Fat - Around 17% I'd guess maybe a little more? muscle definition is visible, as are top 4 ab's, lower ab's are covered though! )

Target:

Body Fat - 12% don't want to look like a ripped gym junkie, just very healthy.


I'm very happy with my gains in the last 6 months or so, I've pretty much gained just muscle, maybe a little fat but I'm carrying about the same as I was.

Now just want to drop some fat and maybe add a little more muscle. My main goals though are to increase my strength and up my fitness, which to be honest is pretty bad. I look fit as a flea... I'm not :o I'm not as strong as I look.
I've done zero strength work and just concentrated on body-building so far. Now I'm more confident about my old elbow injury and my form is there I feel I can now push on and start cranking up the poundages :) especially in my deadlifts and squats, my bench press is ok.

Squat:
Current 185
Goal 200+
Best 215

Bench:
Current 145
Goal 160
Best 145

Deadlift:
Current 210
Goal 240
Best 235

Losing some bodyfat would be nice but not vital.

Only got back into lifting heavy at the beginning of the year. Eg my current deadlift best was first time deadlifting in over 4 months. The goals stated hopefully should be doable withing the next 6 months or so.
