This came up before, but I couldn't find it.

This routine was posted a while back on the Sherdog forums. Basically, "if your routine looks more like this than like Starting Strength, you need to fix your routine."

http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f13/pleas ... ne-425640/

I'm re-posting it because I'm not sure everyone saw it. Also, I suggest Jungledoc do this routine until I catch up to his lifts.

"Leg curls (3 sets of 15-20): These work the back of your quads."

Hahaha thanks Peter. I love stuff like this. This one was an absolute classic.

I'll start right away. I've been looking for something to kick-start my gunz, and to make my upper pecs really pop, and I think this is just the ticket. I will add some hammer curls once in a while, though, just for completeness.

Good point, Dr. J. It's sadly lacking in hammer curls, too. You need those for the peak.

But the guy has a good point - dumbbells are dangerous. With no machine to keep you in the right ROM you can get hurt. Better to stick with a E-Z curl with a couple nickles on it and just rep out for the burn than get hurt with DBs. DBs for DBs, I say. ;)

Of course, you can always do 21s for guns.

They've got wide-ranging boards, including ones that discuss strength and conditioning methods for fighters.

I don't even know what to call this. It's not a strength program. It's not a conditioning program. It's not a bodybuilding program. It's not a general fitness program. It's not sport-specific.

Well, it's really all of those things. You get bigger, stronger, faster, imcrease your endurance. It also helps to reverse male-pattern baldness, probably because it generates so much testosterone.

SWEET! I'm gonna switch to that routine. I started losing my hair at 16 and was completely bald at 25.

I've finally found that miracle routine that does ALL !
