Re: Bench press is worst chest excercise?

I was going to quote messages seperately but I was thinking that it really doesn't matter and this like allmost all my threads in here comes down to just one thing: Compound vs Isolation. Maybe I should just made that named topic instead being hostile to certain movements. Now here are two choices: ...

Re: massage reccomendations?

I consider doing self massage doing it 2x/day everyday 100x more effective than going once per month by doing it someone else. (no offense for people who work there) I actually abandoned it completely. One can argue if self massage is as effective but it works wonders for me. If you bother stretch/m...

Re: Bench press is worst chest excercise?

Well I am done here. I'm tired of this bb.com mentality "if you don't squat/bench then you're phaggot". Guess what? Dorian Yates won 6x mr.olympia without barbell squats. Here is Dorian comment about bench press: " 95 % of bodybuilders, athletes, powerlifters, that have a pec tear, I don’t even need...

Re: Bench press is worst chest excercise?

I dont think its just that here but everywhere. I just dont see logical reason for doing half reps for chest with big weights when you can do full range with less. I think with pec dec machine that has horrible design is worst because you can replace them with safer excercises. Bench is second worst...

Bench press is worst chest excercise?

So many people with shoulder problems its not even funny.

Bench press is basically doing only 20% range of motion of flyes movement. Why not do flyes on cable 100% movement instead and do seperate anterior delt push excercises with less weights? Your rotator cuffs will thank you.

Leg extension machine vs rest

In hack/barbell front squat/leg press you basically assist your thights with your glutes. Problem is pritty much none of it is good glute excercise as you go long long time failure on quads. Movement itself is not good for glutes. People say squat is #1 excercise for glutes but that's totally rubbis...

Re: New and need help.

The way I see whole bodybuilding (hypertrophy) type training is to train 70-90% of your 1 rep max weight. So if you bench 150lbs 1x times then you do sets of 70lbs x 8 reps, 8 reps, 8 reps. Normally I can do 4 sets before going failure. After this I stop because this is not endurance contest. Your j...

Re: Is squat and deadlift replacable trough isolation?

Lots of post. Knew I was going to get heat from this. @hoosegow I wasn't talking about normal leg press and I do not agree with leg presses with bill desimone eather. I never did them in my life because I can put crapload of weights because angle of that machine is doing halfsquats. Because of weigh...

Re: Is squat and deadlift replacable trough isolation?

I guess its best for athlethic purpouse where you need get full body for maximal force. But for regular joe who trains for health and looks I would avoid doing them alltogether. I consider squats extremely bad excercise. Whats point doing only 20% of hyperextension? I rather do it 100% in good morni...

Meal freqvency+casein

If I consume large amount of cottage cheese/milk/casein whey before sleep will it effect results optimally? This is old bodybuilding trick but I think its myth. I think there is no advantage of casein at all. I think meal freqvency is not that important compared total calories consumed. But how much...

Re: food vs synthetic

I counted that I actually get more than enough calcium from food sources. I dont remember exact from which I got it mostly. You can find it in allmost any product unlike D which is mostly in fat poisoned fish.

Anyway im not going to use anything
