Re: per cent body fat and strength

Yea thats it, with this hypothetical question you cannot consider other factors (i.e. both have the same ability to recruit fibres equally, they both "have experience") I would say all that mattered would be the muscle mass in this example The general trend towards fatter guys (but with equal muscle...

Re: Tough Mudder in October: Need a training Plan

OooOoO looks harsh, but yea shame theres so much VO2 involved - I'd love to do something like this but I think the year after is a more sensible target for me, I just can't run :) (cycling is getting there but very much a novice there too) There's a "routine" on the website it seems but really... an...

Re: Hamstring and Tibialis Anterior stretching/inflexibilty

Cheers guys Does your tibialis muscle hurt when running/walking? No never - strictly downhill walking, yes it helps to use the plates under my heels, I struggle with front squats and would find them very very difficult without heel support. @Stephen - Yea I'm such a lazy git with those, I should get...

Hamstring and Tibialis Anterior stretching/inflexibilty

Hello all, Two muscles are quite tight on my body, and as you may have guessed from the title, it's my hamstrings and, after a quick google/muscle map check, my tibalis anterior (shin muscles/the long ankle flexors) When browsing the net generally I find that there's far too many places which claim ...

Re: Pull-up Challenge, 2012

Hmm, I'm pretty sure my max is 12 but I bet I didn't max extend them all (but diminish quickly - 12/8/6/6/4-6 [1.5 min rest ala GVT]) I'll test the extension again next Thursday on back day (and I'll do em before deads!) I think 15 (or +3 pending my test) would be fantastic, and since I am cutting m...

Re: Random crap

Can't sleep uncovered unless I am totally oblitterated (booze/"other")

I once apparently went for boob in my sleep and when she moved me I pulled my face and called her a "f'ing dick" - made me laugh hearing about it, fortunately she was ok too.

Re: the biggest loser appreciation thread!

Re: Pressing with Volume

I just accessorise 5x10 dumbell bench on my 5/3/1 bench day, basically boring but big but with DBS instead of the bar. Does both *shrug* seems to have helped - plus volume pressing tends to reduce my need for multiple tricep isolation exercises (still isolate the long head specifically though)
