Sometimes do nothing

The hanging shit can also aggravate a shoulder that is inflamed True! I did the hangs after a long period away from the gym and when acute inflammation had long since past. The zeitgeist of coaching and PT avoids this repeatedly. The message to let the body chill and desensitize a bit is routinely ...

Re: Game Changers

No. I found as I moved out of being a newbie into being a intermediate lifter, and research verifies this, that a seasoned strength athlete’s 5RM ability to crank 8 reps drops. So a newbie 300 pound squatter or deadlifter can do 8 reps with 80% plus. 80% is good. I trained that way up until I was 2...

Westside vs. The World

A great look at the history of Westside, Louie and all its characters. I didn't know too much about Matt Dimmel so the coverage they gave him was interesting. I agree with Adam Carolla when he says anything can be made interesting in a documentary format. However, this isn't one I think I could show...

Re: Do you even lift, bro?

I read the article that Luke mentioned. I did a version of this last night with the viking/landmine press and the wife jumped in too. I didn't quite do it the way it was laid out but I steadily ramped up the weight and after my final heavy set went back to my original starting weight and went to fa...

Re: Game Changers

Luke, sorry, just saw this. Volume and intensity are the two main drivers of results. Rest periods and frequency are derivatives of the first two. Working in the 7-8 range over and over is a strenghtngame changer. You will get more hypertrophy and strength out of 5x5 or 3x8 sets with 75-85% then wo...

Re: Do you even lift, bro?

I'm having fun with "Breakdowns" as explained by Josh Bryant who got them from Fred Hatfield.

- Work up to a heavy set of 4-6
- Reduce starting weight by 15-20% for 10-15 reps
- Cut starting weight by half and then aim for 20-30 reps.

Volume. Always better to add another set than just go for 1 more rep. Biggest regret in my training history is not enough volume. Please, please, please expound more on this.

Appreciate it, Fat Cat! This is something I'm very embarrassed to admit I don't know the answer to: After a rep of the PC, I usually take a few seconds to set back up.

Loving these at the moment as an assistance movement. I'm stronger on them vs. a regular bench press which makes me wish I had good spotters I could bring into this scam.
