You guys realize that the bar he is using is only 20 pounds, and the weights don’t look like anything over 10 pounds each.
A regular bar used is 45 pounds. If he is straining his muscles on that, he really needs to get more in shape.
Nobody even fuckin asked you stop belittling stuff/people i love
Actually that looks like a standard 45 lb curl bar. And there is no way that those weights are only 10 lbs each. Maybe 20 each minimum.. But here’s the thing….
Harry is most likely cutting and not bulking… So he would be using a lower weight and higher reps.. So before you run your mouth (which is probably the biggest muscle group on your entire body) . Sit your ass down and think about it for 30 seconds. Because not everyone chooses to bulk like you’re improperly implying.
WHICH IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST MUSCLE GROUP ON YOUR ENTIRE BODY
Actually that is what is called an EZ curl bar, and it is not anywhere near 45 pounds. EZ curl bars are between 15 and 25 pounds. Even standard curl bars are not 45 pounds. What you are thinking of is a bench bar, which is considerably longer than a curl bar.
Also, there are no standard 20-pound plates. The closest would be 25, and if you think those are 25-pound plates, you have obviously never stepped foot in a gym and have no business acting like you know something about lifting. (By the way, there’s a “5” right there on the outside plate, genius.)
No, you do not lift lower weight for higher reps to cut. Cutting is done through diet.
And finally, he’s 20 years old, naturally thin, not taking steroids, and not a full-time bodybuilder. Yes, this is probably what he is capable of curling while still maintaining proper form for the entirety of the set, which is far more important than how much you lift.
Well, I want to rant. That’s it. If you don’t agree with me, which is a really probable possibility, please don’t try to convince me otherwise because this subjects affects me and seriously I can’t discuss it.
Well, certainly you are entitled to your opinion, and I am not trying to “convince” you of anything, but surely you didn’t post this in public and expect that no one should respond to it/disagree with you because you “can’t discuss it”?
Sherlock is an intelligent man. He is also highly self-aware, and aware of how others view him. Everyone thinks he is an ungrateful jackass who takes others for granted and never says “thank you.” He knows this.
Consider how his speech was laid out: he starts by insulting everyone and everything in the room. And notice how everyone seemed to have anticipated it? They were all disappointed, sure, but they were all clearly expecting him to do exactly that (even Molly, “what if John asks Sherlock to be his best man?” She compared it to the accident that killed the person she was working on.)
His next statements come across as self-deprecating, but what he is really saying is, “no, I am not as blind to those around me as you all think I am.” He knew perfectly well that everyone was expecting him to blow it, and that everyone (maybe even John) thinks he doesn’t appreciate anything. That speech was just as much about proving everyone wrong as it was anything else.
And really, proving everyone wrong is one of Sherlock’s specialities.
