I don't know how sound this theory is but I wanted to put it out there. It's possible that the people who set records or are the best at their particular sport are not geneticly the best at their pursuit of choice. Like what if the person who could be the greatest squater is playing football where h...

I know that they are not equivalent in terms of body areas worked. I was mostly just trying to determine in terms of effort demanded whether it qualifies as a major movement e.g. bench, military press, cleans. I stopped doing full deadlifts a while back due to messing my back up doing something non-...

Rack pulls as a major

I currently do full body three days a week, Back squats, Heavy BB lunges, and front squats are in the mix right now. I'm thinking of dumping front squats for rack pulls. Thoughts?

Fats aren't bad for you!?

Interesting article concerning information that everyone on this site already knows. This again shows how the government is willing to misinform us because they think we are too stupid to digest the correct information. Fats...Good.

KEEERIST! My passive aggresive tenedencies get me in trouble. So let me explain the quotes. I got irritated at a lame ass jab at Americans. Instead of going off on a kid who is running his mouth I thought it would be better to have a little fun and come up with a bunch of quotes about winning. I wa...

This movie is very well done and should be seen by all. As for the topic, steroids and winning are not just an American thing, the drive to win is experienced by everyone in the world. Is this drive felt more by Americans, maybe but I think that is just a sterotype that the rest of the world puts on...

So after reading this article one could get the idea that this is how you should lift everytime you workout which seems reaoneable. My issuse here is he makes it seem like grinding out reps is useless which I have a hard time believing.

So, would yall say that about 100 reps per week is the ceiling for lifing with 70-80% of your maximum?

My question it light of this data is, would training in both high and low rep ranges in the same workout for the same muscle group alievate the problems? For instance say you would do a bench press 2x3 then 3x10, would strength be maintained or gained while gaining size?

I have to say that these findings don't suprise me. From my own experience I have always noticed after completeing a higher volume routine that when I go back to a more strength oriented program I am either weaker or hopefully equal to what I was before the high volume. All that being said, I think ...

Dude are you natural? I'm not even being a wise ass, well sort of... I mean you are a total volume junky (not that there is anything wrong with that), and how on earth are you able to move any significant weight by the time you get around to chest working at that intensity? No way after warm ups, a...

They are but it's simply for varieties sake as well as one is used with a more strength oriented load and rep scheme and the other a hypertrophy scheme.
