Nice job man. You can really tell the change. Have you been following the same diet plan since you started? Are you going for a bulk look or just lean out?

Thank you, no i haven't the first year i was counting every calorie and doing insanity, last year i joined the gym and was really weak so i raised my calorie intake by about 500 calories a day and an extra protein shake a day trying to get my strength up. The second to last pic was when i had about a month into lifting, i gained allot of fat as well but currently I'm cutting down.

Ha tell me about a gym noob. I just started a month ago. Ive done a ton of research on just about everything. From eating healthy, counting calories, and gym ecxercises.. I feel like a weakling compared to alot of people at the gym. But that just motivates me to hitting my goals. From the cardio side I hit 1.5 miles in 12minutes, I lost 10lbs since I started and ive noticed my strength getting better. My max at BenchPress was 1/2 a plate lol.. Now I can do 1 1/2 plates 5X..
It really feels great.

Stay safe. Get your form down, and get technically proficient before worrying too much about weight.

If need be film yourself on the big lifts(bench, dead, overhead press, squat) and post up for critique. Even better get someone who knows what they are doing, to help train you for a few sessions. And I can't stress KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING enough. There are plenty of "big" guys who have no clue about proper technical form.

RC. Stay on track man, and you wont even recognize yourself in a few months.

X2 on this part especially. Control is sooo essential. I see it day after day, guys grab these big ass weights and have sloppy form. Take the ego out of the lift and focus on the movement, the muscle, the pump.

You should be squeezing each contraction and really focus on not bouncing the weight around.

A good video to watch is the training with Kai series on youtube, he's all of controlled movements.

I'm not so much referring to that more so the technical side of things. You can have slow controlled movements and still be technically challenged. For example myself. I always lifted with super controlled negatives on bench press, very tight form, but from a technical standpoint I was a mess. Not until I had someone who was truly a technician watching me and coaching my form did I realize how bad it was(technically). It was slow, controlled, and looked pretty to the average person but get around people who know what to look for and it was not good.

Bench pressing is more than lying on a bench and pressing, for example.

The pump, and all that is not really a factor in strength training and especially shouldn't really be a factor on big compound lifts. For instance "the pump" is the last thing on my mind on a deadlift. Or say any of the Olympic lifts, these are impossible to do slow, or for a pump. Bicep curl, and more isolation oriented lifts sure pump away.

Being fast on the concentric portion of the lift is important for force generation. The more speed, and explosiveness, the better. If I asked someone to jump onto a picnic table it would be an explosive movement. In Westside Bb training(regarded as the strongest gym in the world) they focus two days a week to "dynamic effort" which is basically moving the weights as fast as possible, and working on speed/force generation.

There is a place for pump training, and for explosive fast movements, just depends on the lift and your goals.

(not all this is directed at you D as I know you know this, just clarifying what I meant)

Here is a decent video showing some really explosive deadlifts. Crazy how fast/easy they make it look. Hope to one day have half of that speed.

Yes well said. It's about the goal. Spec is a power lifter, I am a bodybuilder. The training is different in some parts of the movements like the focus on concentric and eccentric phases.

Honestly he's not really going all that slow in that video. His curling is pretty damn quick. I think he got a bit more fanatical with the super slow shit lately.

I'm sure even there though he's super focused in his head on what he's training.

Also consider the lifts. Going slow on isolation movements is one thing but watch him bench here. He's fairly explosive.

I dont recall mentioning anything about going slow however on most movements I do start slower and accelerate throughout the set on a lot of lifts.

Oh ok. Thought that is what you meant by "focusing on the eccentric/concentric phase" or the bouncing the weight around. Typically when someone says "focus on the negative" it means to slow the lift down. Guess I miss read it.

My bad.
