Re: Barbell complexes - supplementary ?

There's a new article on t-nation about complexes, it's written by Thibaudeau, so it's definitely worth trying. He's really blurring the line between barbell complexes, complex training (aka contrast training - one speed/power + one strength exercise), and circuits. As if they weren't all blurry al...

Re: Setting Safety Bars

A 5-rep max can be as hard to re-rack as a 1-rep max. Yes, it can.. I was pinned at least once while doing the SS routine at the gym. That was when I learned to NOT use the clips to hold the weight on the bar and slide the weight off in a bad situation. Now, at home in the cage, I can just let the ...

Re: Setting Safety Bars

maybe I'm just not understanding what you mean, but I don't see how you can really use safety bars for benching. The bar should be touching your chest at the bottom, so either your safety bars'll be lower than your chest, in which case there'd be no point because the bar'll stop at your chest anywa...

Re: pendulum quadruped hip extensions

Wow, I must be a cheap SOB, but I only see about $300 in steel and bearings. Then maybe a couple of hours to cut and weld (if only doing 1).

Why so expensive.

But more importantly, it's huge (almost the size of a power cage).

Re: My local gym is......

Our local World's Gym sold out to Gold's Gym in the early 2000's. Then about 2007-8 or so, the Gold's Went out of business/sold out to Urban Active. Nothing ever changed, except the name on the buildings and they all resemble more of a "Health Club" than a meathead Gym. Pool 3 - rooms for the Cardio...

Re: What do you do for triceps?

You might want to consider and try Bench Dips instead of the Parallel bar Dips. In my experience, it's easier to focus on the tricep doing these. It's easy to add weight doing them this way also. http://exrx.net/WeightExercises/Triceps/BWBenchDip.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I...

There are currently two themes available for use. Subsilver2 which looks almost identical to the old forum, with just a few minor changes. AND ProSilver which is completely different, has the Usernames and profile pics on the right, colors are different, does not have the running man at the top I'm ...

Re: This New Board Format SUCKS!

Ironman, why you returned that funeral color for stickies? What about this color? I can probably make you some gifs transparent, but then they must be in png format. I don't know if it works for you... Transparant Gifs are fine, and even PNG's would work, but still wouldn't show correctly in most I...

Re: This New Board Format SUCKS!

For the record, I'm not against the ads at all, I just think the ads need a facelift, both in Forum Presentation and Overall Design.

Re: This New Board Format SUCKS!

What happened to the other "Running Man" logo at the top? The current one with the white background is tacky and needs a transparant background. Also, I fully understand the need for Ads and stuff, but WOW, did they increase about 5 fold in the last day or so? They are typically more effective if ce...

Pretty sure they must have 10 or so posts before they can post any links, use the signature line, and a few other items.

Re: Intermittent Fasting

Thanks

Does the benefit come from timing the workout during a fasted state, or the nutrient breakdown around working out.
