We have a /FIT/ board, guys. Anonymous 09/30/2019 (Mon) 01:26:45 No. 2 [Reply]
Let me be the first to celebrate here and welcome u all by doing 40 pushups and 20 pullups for starters.

Who's with me?
12 posts and 6 images omitted.
He's going to die of a heart attack later in life.
What gave me big arms:
>Understanding that triceps are a bigger muscle group then biceps.
>So search exercises for triceps but also do for biceps.
>Do pushups as warming up. I am at a level i do 50 40 as warm up. Find ur own number and crank it up over time.

It's not hard to gain muscle in your arms but you have to be consistent on it.

For biceps:
try bicep curls, hammer curls and bicep isolation curls with dumbells.

For triceps:
Close grip barbell press, Dips and tricep curls with dumbell.

These did it for me. But it took 6 months of fitness to get my arms big (i also got other muscles big by that time so.)
>breaks his legs squatting because of his weight
lads could this be the replacement for 8/fit/? is there hope after all?

Upon reflection that webm isn't exactly the best primer for an absolute beginner, it doesn't give you simple guidelines to follow; I sent it moreso to show what can be done with a bit of discipline and patience. You don't need a $200 gym membership to get ripped.
What you should really focus on right now is building a baseline strength:
1. Pushups / Dips
2. Pullups / Chinups
3. Squats
As time goes on you'll have to figure out the amount of repetitions to do yourself, but I suggest to start out in the 6 - 12 range and 3 - 4 sets.
Set goals, smash them, repeat.

>Should I do this to start my day, or to end my day?
It doesn't actually matter that much, do it at a time that is convenient to you.

>How long should my workout last? 20 minutes? An hour?
Aim to get the workout done in an hour, doesn't have to be precise.

>Should I be working to exhaustion, or muscle failure?
If what you want to to build strength, this requires breaking down your muscles (hypertrophy) which requires slow, controlled repetitions. I would suggest to stick to reps and sets, but if you can't make them do it to failure.
