Yesterday I pulled 435 with 4 heavy 5/8" chains, roughly 500lbs at the top. Any big deadlifters in here?

I can really only think of cable resistance exercises and 6 inch killers, but those don't really isolate your hips.

Best thing you can do for hip explosion is cleans from a hang. Don't shrug the bar off the bat. Drop your hips a few inches and use hip explosion to get the bar moving, then follow through with the traps after full hip extension. Keep the weight light until you find a good groove.

Not even close to that.. I think max I do is 350lbs..
Do love deadlift but it isn't a huge focus at the moment. Don't want to go too heavy and hurt my back in rugby season.

Whatever, you'll feel like an idiot when it gets you nowhere. For your own sake, seriously consider what I said in my previous post- i'm qualified to give this kind of advice.

This is where I was about seven months ago at 176lbs. I'm currently 210lbs, cutting down to a similar bodyfat%. I should be there at 195-200lbs.
I don't feel like an idiot.

Even female bodybuilders tend not to be particularly muscular, due to much lower levels of testosterone. So long as you maintain a healthy amount of body fat, you shouldn't become ripped or anything.
I would, however, recommend building muscle in certain areas, particularly legs. Increased muscularity in the lower body can help create disparity between the two halves, making your upper body appear slimmer by contrast.

Deadlift for the booty, squats for quads, calf raises for calves (lol), etc. Lunges and whatnot aren't a bad idea, either.

Don't worry about becoming too muscular. If it were that easy, every guy would be buff!

It's been a good three to five years since I've lifted seriously. I still can't lift seriously because of not having time in the day, full time job, part time job, being a father and doing the manly things of raising my daughter, cleaning the house, doing the yard work, cooking, etc...

I do manage to get twice a week in. In the last two months I've gone from benching 185 to 245 and I'm feeling stronger every time I go back in to lift. I only have 300 pounds of weight, but at my pace I think I'll be back to my old style of using that 300 pounds for higher reps.

Anyone here into Powerlifting? I'm probably gonna do a comp towards the end of this year. Aiming to do a 232.5kg Squat and 165kg-170kg Bench press. 230kg+ Deadlift is doable as well.

Also anyone ran any of these programs; Smolov Jr, Coan-Phillipi Deadlift routine and Magnusson/Ortmayer Deadlift routine?

I'm having a competition with a swedish friend of mine, basically whoever gets fitter/more attractive at the end of 5 months, wins. He has a gym membership and access to a swimming pool, i have access to the public park, do i have any chances to win?

Managed to get through the first week just fine and started noticing some improvements already.

The challenge ends January 1st 2016 but i want to continue going after that, will probably post a before and after image of both of us after the deadline.

Guys! I'm 90kg, 5 foot 6 and 31% body fat.

I want to lose fat and gain muscle.

I have a forest behind my house I used to do 6 and a half mile jogging around and I'm willing to get GYM membership after I've broken in with the jogging.

Can anyone recommend me a work out?

I have been doing a certain workout for a while now and it did an awesome job getting me ripped and fitting into my daily life. This is what I have been doing.
Every half an hour a set of 10 push up and 10 sit ups (the variation I have been doing Works on both lower and upper abs since normal sit ups are more for upper abs)

Since it is in half an hour spaces I can do things in between and it doesn't feel like I'm tired all the time while I'm working out all day long.

Awesome results. Friends always notice and I get asked if I've been working out very frequently.
This is based on no hard scientific evidence but it worked for me so it might just work for you. I haven't been taking no supplements until like a month ago for health reasons. It doesn't seem like it does too much in muscle development so this workout plan seem to work the same way with and without supplements (again no scientific research).

Recommended to wait about 30+ minutes after meal to resume. no recommended to do in public. I frequently walk and run places so if you sit down all day I suggest to try to incorporate a leg workout somewhere. this workout usually fits all since it uses your own body as weights. as you get stronger your muscle mass will build and you will be a heavier weight for you to work out with so staying in the range of 10 to15 is usually the best.

I hope anyone found this helpful and I hope this helped you incorporate your workout into your day without needing to dedicate a certain time separately.

ENJOY!
