Re: Training Log

Mickey, much better training with BBs than Kbs for ME and DE strength....since i can add more weight/chains /bands/ etc. More bang for my buck. Much more. Same goes for BBing building purposes too. Kbs are a great great training tool ( even heavy ones ) but I still have much left at soon to be 59 th...

Re: Training Log

Thanks Bill, About the pushup reps with weight vest... I think that it's just a matter of being different as opposed to being better. However, it will still boil down to what you are able to handle once you move up to 80 lbs ( or more ). IMO, you should be able to handle 8x3 or even 10x3 right off t...

Re: ab g-d's stoic patience log...

Hey Bill, Bodyweight Drills ( with/without added weight ) + KBs + Heavy Bag + Cardio = Good Karma ! This is mostly where I am these days. For the KB work I like sets of 10-12 with the reps being 3s or 5s all done with max explosiveness and a brief rest. ( sub max weight ) Heavier KB work is done for...

What compatibility issues ? I've admitted to no such thing. Nothing wrong with Vista as long as you have enough RAM. However, I did love Windows ME !

Re: Training Log

Mick, For the next few months I'm shifting my focus from Overhead Pressing to Weighted Pushups. Based on my previous training ( years ) I'll be able to maintain most of my overhead strength using just the JS Green Bands. I'll also do some high rep endurance overhead work using either the minis or th...

Nope , never had a shoulder/elbow issue when doing dips.

My best gains with dips came when I specialized this movement and did no other pushing exercises in the same training cycle. No real surprise here.

Listen to your body!
