Re: Overtraining the Deltoid, Anterior?

How come they count as vertical in this regard, when the muscles used aren't (exactly) the same? Well, maybe "over training" is frased wrong. I just wondered, that the Anterior Deltoid seemed to play an important part in a lot of upper body exercises. And I wasn't sure, if that meant, that I should ...

The exercises are: Military Press, Pulldown, Triceps Dips, Upright Row, Bench Pres...

Strength vs. endurance training

Hello. Today I read two different articles on some scientific findings from 2010 and 2012, which showed that if you trained until fatigue, then the muscles would get the same amount of fiber growth whether you did a 80% or 30% RM. It was the fatigue that mattered. So my question is, why runners don'...

Re: Basic Movement Patterns + more

Sorry for the late answer. Holiday time. :smile: stuward: Thank you for the link. Interesting reading. Dub: I don't want to go to the gym that often, which a split program requires, so I just have to try and see, how much time it will take me to do the exercises I have planned, and then refining the...

Basic Movement Patterns + more

First off, I know that this is a huge post, but I don't expect anyone to answer everything, and even a very short answer is appreciated. Not a long ago I came across the philosophy of the six basic movement patterns on this site, and after searching the web, it seems to me, that there are some varia...

Re: Target, Synergist ratio

No, I don't think you can define any of those ratios. It doesn't really matter. Just train all the major movements, and then synergists and stabilizers with get as much training as they need. They don't need as much training as the prime movers for the major lifts. So just to be sure I understand y...

Target, Synergist ratio

Hello. I couldn't find a similar topic, so pardon me if there already is one. After spending a lot of time browsing through the different types of exercises, I am wondering, if anyone know how the ratio is between the Target and Synergist muscles in terms of total amount of effort (english is not my...
