    One thing that is indisputable for any workout posted in this thread or any other, is that it will lose efficacy if that is the only workout you do. The body gets used to a certain regimen of stressors, and is thus no longer challenged by it. To train effectively for the long term, as in your whole life, you must vary your regimen from time to time, as your health and goals dictate.

    And also, advice online could be coming from anyone, a 100 pound person with no muscle could be paraphrasing the best powerlifting advice overheard on a public bus the day before. Before aspiring to convince others that your regimen is the one true path to physical greatness, post a picture of your current physical condition to allow others to assess if what you are preaching is also good in practice.

    Mine's in the current picture thread, I stand behind my program, but its not for everyone, and I am also open to learning from others who have bettered themselves in the gym through research, a good work ethic, and experience.
    Actually, I posted to find out whether or not my regimen was good - not to convince others. Besides I'm a woman. I'm not looking to win any bodybuilding championships - I'm looking to be healthy and do some prevention so that I don't have another back injury. The first one really wasn't fun.

    A question for all MBTI members regarding the male body (addressed to both genders):
    Which areas of it attracts your attention the most?


    I like lean guys with some muscle tone. I notice men who cycle, surf, and play soccer have great bodies.
    I especially like long, lean legs on a man. I dislike short, stumpy legs, or overly muscular & thick legs. Bony pole legs aren't attractive to me either.
    I also like shoulders on the broad side. A guy can be very thin, but if he has good shoulders he still seems masculine and attractive.
    A cute butt is nice of course.

    Overrated: super defined abs, big arms, and pecs that look like man-boobs.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    i spose i can answer this and still be confident in my sexuality lol

    i think anything athletic is good looking. more muscle than what is useful i find funny (aka bodybuilding). i personally like the whole bruce lee mentality. i notice anyone that is fairly well built all around. ive seen guys that only have big arms or bigs pecs or ripped abs or big shoulders and it looks retarded lol

    I'll always endorse chin-ups fully as being one of the best overall upper body exercises. It's a body-weight exercise not meant for mass building like compound weight lifting would be, but you actually will see growth in your arms and back from chin ups. It's one of the few exercises that really leaves my back feeling sore (in a good way). Also, maybe I'm just weird but sometimes my abs will be totally sore too. Just from tensing them up tightly.

    You must not be doing it right then B . Chin-ups/pull-ups are a classic mass builder. As you noticed, it actually works more than your back.

    On a guy I don't particularly look at one part. But large forearms get my attention.

    Are palms out chinups better than palms in? Isometrics come in handy. weather it be for better efficiency for work or everyday life.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Shoulder width with palms facing you are best overall.

    Well yes, but most people don't think of chin ups when it comes to building. To me at least it seems it's grouped with calisthenics like push ups, sit ups and exercises for tone. *shrug*

    I like doing wide grip, with palms facing me. If I want to hit my bi's more I use closer grip.

    It's best to vary grips. My personal favourite has always been parallel grip.
