    Decided to start a new thread that hopefully won't be filled with nonsense like my other one (which was my fault). Hope other members on here watch my thread as I'll be posting videos and looking for advice

    Current stats :
    Age: 17
    Height: 6"1
    Weight : 11 stone (ish)

    Max lifts:
    Squats: 65kg (3x5)
    Deadlift: 95kg (1x5)
    Bench: 50kg (3x5)
    OHP: 30kg (5x5)

    Not sure how accurate these are tbh, have been doing bro splits with dumbbells since January.

    I've been lifting since November but only started eating in a caloric surplus since February.

    My routine will be a slightly modified version of Ice Cream Fitness (5x5) tailored to help me hopefully overcome injuries. First session tomorrow.

    Ps. I'll be bulking through summer >>>

    That's strong man! I'm sure your deadlift will rise rapidly when you get the form right. Keep it up!

    If you're that desperate to hide your face, angle the camera so we can't see your face.

    Or go Omar Isuf and do your work in a costume/ mask, power ranger etc

    Also your blog name is awful similar to Motorbikers lol

    How tall are you? Cause by the time exams are coming around, with those stats unless you are noticeably fat then keep bulking. Slow and steady bulk ftw.

    Thank you likewise. Form is really important and lately i have been focused more on hypertrophy training than strength because i gained quite a bit of muscle. I am going for that aesthetic look for summer cutting to around 70-73kg. Right now around 80kg mark with 15% bf at 5ft 10.5 what about you bra?

    Aw ****, didn't even realise that. Have been following his thread for a good while now as well. Must have read the words 'noob gets strong' so many times from clicking on his thread that it got stuck in my head :/ ah well, it's what's inside the thread that matters

    Go hard or go home

    Your back is strong

    Unless you're an idiot trying to pull 200kg with an arched upper back you're not going to injure yourself

    I am scared to **** up my back approaching real cautious because i can easily pull of 110kg i know it because i tried it.
    Was doing deadlifts today (well, yesterday) and I normally do around 6/7 sets of 110kg for 10 reps. Started doing my first set and a friend of mine who works at the gym told me that I could easily have done more reps/weight. Told him I was a bit worried about doing my back in as I do get pretty sore after a big back sesh. He told me that it was fine as long as I kept the same form as I had been doing and he showed me a nifty stretching exercise to do with a foam roll after each, or every few, set(s). So instead today I did:

    8x60kg (warmup)
    10x90kg
    10x110kg
    10x110kg
    9x125kg
    9x125kg
    8x125kg
    9x110kg

    Major increase from what I normally do and it was fine because my form was good and I stretched well, so my back doesn't feel it much at all.

    Just whatever you do, don't arch your back forward, cos that will hurt like ****.
