    Bench pressing

    Big thanks to all those who put in their 2.5c worth. A nice new hobby of mine is to study training programs, to get an idea of what's happening in terms of volume, intensity and so forth. When it comes to flat & incline presses in the same workout, i wasn't sure how 'common practice' it...

    [Article] Interview with Alan Aragon

    How dogmatic. Just joking. I may have contradicted myself. My main point was that fat loss with a strategy of lowering fat is a good option when it comes to fat loss. If an individual is operating on 65% carbs, 30% pro and 5% fats, their destined for disaster. That being said we all metabolse...

    [Article] Interview with Alan Aragon

    Like Alan, I enjoy preaching against nutritional dogma that is often so subtle that most people don't realize their following it. I also enjoy teaching against performance dogma. From what I can tell, a better way to lose weight is possibly to lower fat actually. While being on a calorie...

    23y.o. 65kgFirst Cycle

    test e(thanate) is a nice drug to start out on. That is not to say I recommend it to you (now or ever). As per previously suggested, periodize / cycle your calories and training first. We are pretty much the same height/weight. I could be a lot bigger, but I chose not to as i am comfortable...

    rest period between sets

    As an institution that specializes in increasing general athleticis and decreasing the rate of injuries for athletes, I feel that their recommendations do carry some weight. Believing their recommendations blindly and using them as dogma may not be a wise move.

    rest period between sets

    Well...with a workout of spprox 80 working reps and taking approx 8 minutes of rest, I'm not surprised training sessions take a long time. I'm aware that training needs to be specific to the competition. In a competition if you were to benn 100kg, with the second attempt Beinf 105 (for...

    Glycogen depletion and super-compensation Questions

    There are definite easier ways of getting shredded than using a weird template of glycogen depletion/supercompo. Don't forget that musclular glycogen depletion doesn't happen in a vaccum. There are many different things at play. You should make sure you're taking in enough water soluble...

    What would be a better arrangement ? I'm assuming that 21 years behind bars isn't much fun. Well...it's not much fun in Russian prisons. Easier in Australian ones. I am strongly against the death penalt. On the other hand, a person spending the rest of their natural life in prison involves a...

    Weightlifter Dies In A Power Lifting Competition

    The meet/technical director has a lot to answer for x the right person should be given the right job. It's a safety thing. He's the manager. That being said, if the spotters didnt feel comfortable in that role, then speaking up could have avoided a big mess. I wonder if there some sort of...
