He was no bigger than me either, seriously felt like decking him for being a spastic.

    Progress pic just to show where abouts I'm at, no pump or nothing just out the shower. When will it be my turn for abs?

    Spoiler:
    Looking athletic brah. Abs are hard to come by unless you're really strict with the diet or do alot of cardio.. bulk ftw.

    Is there a difference between incline flies and flat bench flies?

    Anyone use creatine? I've made some good gains last month and I want to try creatine for a month just to see if there is any more improvement.

    Yeh the incline flyes will hit your chest a bit higher up.

    I've used creatine, do it for 8 weeks. Will give you good strength gains.

    Incline > all

    Zyzz said it's incline that gives a better shape to your chest.

    Yes can't tell the difference in the gym tbh, I've been on it for a while now. However when I'm out cycling then my legs definitely do have a lot mote endurance to them especially going up steep hills.

    Just cycled to the gym and back in the pouring rain. Before I even left my street I was soaked, there ain't nothin' stopping me going to the gym!

    But anyway. I found myself lifting heavier today. yippee

    I want to start going to the gym soon but I'd feel a bit stupid not knowing exactly what to do, I might go with my brother but he goes to a boxing gym so I'm not sure about that.

    You generally do feel a bit stupid and self conscious in the beginning, but just look up some exercises and try your best to do them. Chances are no one really cares if you have perfect form or are lifting loads, just keep doing your thing and eventually it just feels natural.

    I don't want to get into a habit of doing it wrong and not knowing though, I'll probably just go with my older brother, he's hench so he must be doing it right.

    If you're really interested, everything you need to know about training, form, diet and anything else you can think of is explained in detail and with hundreds of pictures in this book..

    Or you could just look at what others are doing.

    That's pretty much how I started out.

    I don't really know because I have nothing to compare to, nearly 1 a second though which is pretty good.

    I wouldn't really know if I was doing it wrong, but I was doing it at the same time as one other person and he told him he was doing it wrong but didn't say anything to me so it mustn't have been too bad.

    Isn't a crunch where your lower back is still on the floor and you just raise your head and shoulders?

    there are various ways of faking a sit up:

    crunch, as above
    rocking back and forth to make it look like your doing it, when you are really just rocking on your back.
    Using arms/hands to hurl yourself up.

    I wasn't doing any of those, I got my shoulders as close to my knees as I could and my back as straight as possible.

    So i hit the gym yesterday after a very long absence. My arms are very sore and I can't keep them straight. I've experienced this before, but I don't remember it being this bad the first time I went to a gym. What should I do other than rest? Painkillers? Is there something to rub on my arm to relax the muscles?
