  • How primal am I in the Gym bro?

    So, I recently got a membership at my local fitness center and I decided to go whack.

    Basically I have been going 3-4 times a week for like 2-3 hours at a time.

    Here's where i'm currently at as far as strength bro.

    I do 170 on the leg pushy thingy that works the hamstring muscles, where you sit down and push it forward, you know?

    For the ass I am doing 60 on each side on the glute mechanoid. Needless to say my ass is getting tighter (yes I am a man!).

    Curls I am doing 110 for the bicep.

    Now the friggin tricep is the tricky itchy trigger winger bro. I am doing three different exercises for these bitches.

    The first is up down, the second is pull down, the third is up down at a DIFFERENT angle than the other up down.

    I do 160 on the lat pull down.

    I do 130 for the calf muscles, up down, up down.

    I'm doing about 200 on the trap shrug machine.

    150 on the chest press and 160 on the butterfly chest machine.

    120 on the row machine.

    125 on the ab forward crunch

    130 on the obliques

    and I do sets of declined sit ups with a 25 pound plate attached to my chest.

    For a cool down I hop on the elliptical for 10-15 minutes with the cardio in the target zone mostly, but then slowly get closer to normal heart rate at the end.

    So how Primal am I in my fitness so far bro?

      Bro, the chest press is weights, true weights targeting the true muscle bro. I am lifting all 150 pounds of it bro, I swear on my primal ancestors.

            Don't forget to shave your legs, wear a shirt with the sides almost completely cut out so people can see your massively cut 150lb frame, drop weights to get attention, moan and groan during every rep, wear headphones and bop your head around like you're really into it, wear wrist straps even when you're lifting small weights - it makes you look hardcore, bench with your buddies and shrug the weight up while they're pressing it while going "all you bro", curl in the squat rack, half squat in the Smith machine, hit your core and abs, lift your shirt after doing abs in a crowded area while flexing and looking in the mirror, and get a tribal tattoo on your shredded 14" arms. Don't forget to start hitting the juice when your bench hits 200lb and your quarter squat 300lb - you'll be at your natural limits.

            That'll do it, brah.

                      Not sure if this post is a wind up but I'll reply anyway !

                      If you are working out for 2-3 hrs then you are not working out anywhere near hard enough to stimulate an adaptation from the body. What are you actually hoping to achieve ?

                      I suggest you read the article below as it will at least give you a little insight into what you should actually be doing:

                      The Minimum Amount Necessary | High Intensity Training by Drew Baye

                      Good luck 'Bro'.

                      Ps.The triceps is an extensor muscle of the elbow joint and an antagonist of the biceps and brachialis muscles, it has one basic function and that is to extend the arm, providing you are doing one extensor movement to momentary muscular failure your Triceps will be stimulated. The angles or arm positions are of very little importance, no need for 3 exercises doing the same thing.

                        Brah,
                        You're seriously, like, a ways off bro. Ditch the pussy machines - Grok didn't have that girly-girly shit. Use dem free weights, brah, or better yet throw some rocks around.

                              Rich M...er...Primal Alien, BRO, you ain't even close to primal in the gym, bro! You don't isolate your biceps for 45 minutes in front of the mirror? Bro, come on! You think Grok was walking around carrying deer on his shoulder? No way, bro! He was standing in front of an ice wall or sweet reflective pool and ISOLATING THE F OUT OF HIS BICEPS! How do you think he got all the Neanderhos?

                              Bro, you gotta grab some dumbbells and stand sideways and stare at those bi's in the mirror and CURL THE F OUT OF THEM to get them swole, bro! I mean STARE at them. And yell at them. Even better, drag one of those curl machines over by the mirror so you can curl harder and stare HARDER. Bro, get totally primal in the gym and CURL LIKE A MOFO.
