    Default Weight lifters, strength trainers, and body builders. Raise your hand.

    Alright. I'm curious if there are any other people, guys and girls, that are lifting weights. It's hard to be on the body building forum and the MBTI forum all the time.

    I hoping to find some lifters here that I can befriend
    Alright! Where are you??

    It's slow going.

    Nice! So do you have a 3-day split routine or do you do full-body workouts on each of your workout days?

    edit: Oh, and how long have you been lifting?

    Off and on for years.

    I had to give up my weight bench when I moved in '02. So now it's a pulley machine and a ton of push ups, pull ups, and hand weights.

    It's a split routine.

    I skipped it today to get into work early. Eh, I'll do it tomorrow (legs and back).

    Good deal, MacG. We'll hafta compare notes in further detail soon.
    I'm on a 4-day split routine.

    I've been at it since February this year and I've gained about 15 pounds (all n00b gains). But I'm LOVING the structure it provides in my daily routine and diet. I think it feeds my J-genes.

    I'm not super serious with it and have trouble keeping a consistent routine but I enjoy the gym. Heavy weight(for me)/low reps.

    Same here.

    So what kinda compound lifts are you guys doing?

    My big lifts are:
    romanian deadlifts 275lbs
    rack pulls 285 lbs
    weighted chin-ups/pull-ups (body weight + 35)
    squats 240 lbs
    incline/flat bench 160
    clean and press 100

    I'm 5'5'' and am hovering around 145 lbs-ish. My chest/shoulders are my weakest muscle groups because of a rotator-cuff injury almost a year ago.

    My before pictures are ridiculous - I was so skinny.
    I'm part way through a cut right now and am trying to hold on to as much of my hard-earned muscle as I can.

    You don't want to get too bulky at 5'5

    Yeah, I do, I work out at home. I mostly do body weight exercises for upper body, using a chin-dip-leg raise tower but I do use weights for my quads,hams,calves. I've got a Yukon Angled Leg Press I use for my quads and calves with 415 lbs. of Olympic weights not counting the bar (460) ,5-75 lb. Hex Bell set and I don't bar squat. I've got an Olympic weight bench but the only thing I use it for is the Leg Extension/Leg Curl apparatus, also have a 45 degree hyper-extension and treadmill.My goals are for fitness and endurance.
