    So if youre on anabolics, your protein synthesis post stimulation is extended in the muscle. Often that is 7 days.

    In a natural lifter, it is elevated for 2-3 days. Hence hitting the movement twice a week+ is considered optimal. Hence why fullbody 3x a week has been popular since the Golden Age of BBing

    I understand how that's possible to hit each muscle at least twice a week if doing fullbody each time but what's your opinion on someone trying to hit everything twice a week but on a 3 day split? Ie 6 times a week - isn't this too much for the average natty lifter?

    **** you

    Bench is now 65kg. What do you advise to do to get my deadlift up, which seems to have stagnated? I've been stuck at 110 max for 4 reps for ages, and even then on some days I struggle to get 100/105. Barbell row, TRX row, wide-grips have all been making good progress so it's pretty bewildering tbh.

    If you're stalling at those weights; then you have to consider two things - routine and diet.

    I'd vote you're pretty skinny and your routine is built for a drug user; not a natty.

    If you've been lifting consistently since Summer 2014; that's kind of ridiculous. My gf is stronger than you (no offence) and has been lifting a lot less time.

    By end of year one lifting the couple of people I've helped have been able to get 130+/100+/ 170+. So yeah my recommendation is eat + get a better routine
    Shots fired at the GF comment.

    Lifting just over a month

    Lifts are (5 x 5)

    Bench - 40KG
    Squat - 55KG
    Deadlift - 70KG
    OHP - 27.5KG

    Not really happy with my progress so far, although I do feel fitter in other aspects of life.

    My deadlift is stalling because of my **** grip, I'm having to wear gloves ATM because the bar shredded my hand open. Any tips?

    Also, what are the benefits of doing squats and deadlifts belt-less

    Also, I found you on IG

    Yeah doable, but just don't be surprised when you're overtrained. Having been there; it really sucks.

    3-4 times a week are enough for anybody. If you wanted to go 4x a week; a push pull split or a upper/ lower split would be fine. I do fullbody and do it 3-4x a week depending on life; I do cardio 2-3x a week between 30 and 1hr 30 depending on what it is.

    Don't do deadlifts 5x5; it'd kill me, so it'll kill you Do it one max set; balls to the walls. Aim for 5; if you can get more, do. Liquid chalk is great.

    What have you done to your hand? I tore a callus off 10 days ago, so I used wraps for a week; they're alright.

    I don't see the need for a belt; until your at least 100/140/180 and looking to compete. It allows you to use more weight as you brace against it. Benefits of beltless are - possible lower injury rate; but definately more abs involvement

    My hair was peak back in the summer. Annoyed the hell out of me when it rained just after I did it. Being blinded by red hair dye is awful

    What's your training?
    How much cardio you doing?
    Bulking?
    Have you considered filming your form?
