Re: Cluster Sets

Exactly.....and please don't take what I'm saying as a knock or an insult. But is lifting your main thing? Are you actively trying to put plates on the bar, or change body composition? No, I'm a martial artist first, a trail runner a distant second and lifting is just a supplementary activity. Or t...

I recently bought an electric shaver. WTF does this have to do with decline benching? you ask. Considering the direction this thread is going, it's relevant. If I neglect to shave for a few days, a surprising number of guys start calling me "sir".

Re: A Fatty Special Report: One Year of 5/3/1

It can be so simple, yet so effective. Lift 3-4 days a week, do first set last 5 x 5 Throw in some pullups and rows in between or after the main course Sprint or do 300 swings 2 days a week. Eat plenty of food and avoid eating crap. But you can't sell a book without making things absurdly complex. ...

Re: A Fatty Special Report: One Year of 5/3/1

I think the best way to add volume to the main lift was BD's idea of First Set Last. After the money set, drop back to the first set weight and keep hitting 5'ers with it until the bar speed slows down. I think a set rest time would work good with this method so fatigue is building consistently fro...

Re: DD Catalog on Prime Video

A tangent. Tom Kurtz's flexibility stuff is much better than Pavel's. More systematic and better structured. His Flexibility Express video is really good. Freaky guy - probably in his late sixties if not seventies - sits in all splits and does all kinds of kicks above the head level. How 'bout this...

Re: A Fatty Special Report: One Year of 5/3/1

Well done, FC. 5/3/1 is a program I wanted to love. Always felt like I was doing way too little, and the AMRAP sets never moved the 1RM needle. The Beyond versions looked way better than the OG program. So many people got/get so much out of it, makes me wonder if I was just too new to everything wh...

Re: Decline Bench Press

Dips are probably a superior exercise, although loading gets a bit problematic eventually as well. Trainees with beat to shit shoulders often have to omit dips from their exercise selection I can understand why dips are hard on the shoulders (I don't have that problem, though), but one of the most ...

Re: Decline Bench Press

I like dumbbell decline presses for pectoral mass. It's one of the few movements I've seen rapid change with. Aside from that, I also like putting a 25# plate under the end of the bench and doing slight decline 'tilt' benches. It changes the angle just a bit, it seems to take some stress out of the...

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

I have no problem with that. However, if a guy can barely hold the KB overhead and it is wobbly - you reckon an increase is a tad too large for that lad?
