*sigh* ok well what about this:http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_art ... omorph&cr=
I didn't bother posting it because I didn't see the need for a tit for tat article exchange but there we go. You have an article, I have an article. Good times, noodle soup.
I have read countless times that long limbed individuals need more isolation work for the limbs, particularly shoulder and arms,
Great. Then you will have no problem posting that information.
Thibaudeau has posted about a million articles, forum posts and what have you over on that site. I am not going to trawl through them to find that point. If that renders my point invalid, then so be it.
Lat Pulldown Example:
The biceps are overloaded long before the last are completely exhausted.
not when I do them. And even if that were the case, simply pre-exhausting the lats prior to the pulldown would fix that easily. Also a pronated grip puts the biceps in a disadvantaged position so the lats work harder. I know you know this.
That because you special.
Your pre-exhaustion statement illustrates my point. Thank for the help.
I don't think it does help. The biceps do NOT fatigue first when you do pulldowns correctly, which clearly you do not. The pre-exhaust was only mentioned as a way of remedying the problem (which you shouldn't even be having if you perform the moveent correctly) so if you think that proves your point then I don't know what to say to that.
Bench Press Example:
The triceps are toasted long before the chest is completely exhausted.
not when I do them, it's actually my anterior delts that tire first. Again, pre-exhaust if necessary.[/quote]Pre-exhaust. Thanks reinforcing my point
overtrain? Really? Uh, no. Overtraining is rarer than uniform $h1t. If someone is under-recovering, then they are not eating/sleeping enough to support their training. Easily fixed. Real overtraining, as suffered by Olympic athletes, complete with all the different pathologies, just does not happen to average joes.Really? There it more about eating more and sleeping more.
So, Olympic athletes just need to eat and sleep more.
Glad that you clean that up.
Oh so Olympic athletes somehow prove your point? Tell it to John Broz. See what he thinks about your overtraining notion.
[/quote]Yes, Ectomorphs appear to do well with higher repetition movements.
doesn't this contradict what you were saying about low volume?Evidently, you have you own definition of what volume is.
"Volume refers to the number of muscles worked, exercises, sets and reps during a single session"
Sounds like my definition was about right.
medication works by a totally different mechanism than weight training. Not a good comparison. And there is HUGE variation between how individuals can respond to a medication.
Really? So, each individual so different and unique that a custom made medication need to be developed and use by each individual.
different medications are contraindicated for different individuals.
I agree, it is interesting.
again, different people have different fibre make up, and will need different rep ranges. Dr Squat had a great article about how to find it for your individual bodyparts.
Yes, some individual have more of one muscle fiber type than another.
Great. Post it.
But then Dr Squat disagrees with you, so I guess he must be an idiot.You have provide nothing to to demonstrate that Hatfield and I disagree at this point.
it's on his website. Do your own homework
You have a limited amount of knowlege. You have present nothing to back up your points, just vague information that goes no where.
Perhaps you should use something to back up your point other than, "Because I said so."
I literally laughed out loud when I read this part. This was supposed to be funny, yes? It had to be a joke. You are accusing me of doing what you have been doing yourself all through this thread.
Some of your claims that have been unsubstantiated:
-"The LAST thing endomorphs (I assume you meant to say ectomorphs here...) need is more work. They have a high metabolism and their recovery rate is much longer"
-"this means ectomorphs "overreach"... and eventually "overtrain". "
-the biceps are overloaded long before the lats in a pulldown
-"For the most part, the majority of ectomorphs need to perform low volume-high intensity training. This will elict the greatest training response."
pot kettle black at all Kenny?
And then you round it all off by saying I have limited knowledge. Nice. You know what Kenny? I admit
that I have limited knowledge, that's why I drive myself to learn.
I will leave you with a quote from one of my university professors: "Only ignorant people know things, truly educated people accept they know very little."
I know which one of those I am Kenny, and now I see it's pretty clear which one you are (hint: the former).
