Thanks, that looks really helpful. I appreciate it. You might want to get a second opinion here . Someone told me years ago that narrow grip movements worked the outer (lateral) tricep head more, while shoulder width or wider grips worked the medial (inner head). To isolate the long head, you have ...

I was wondering what exercise I should do to focus on the lateral head of the triceps?
According to this, narrow grip pressdowns and dumbbell kickbacks.

P.S. I heard recently that Yao Ming has cut his BF% to 6... 6! On a 300 pound 7'6" guy!
A 300 lb person who is 7' 6" has a BMI of 26, while a person who weighs the same but is 6' 3" has a BMI of 37.5 . That's a big difference

basically i want to know if i can be big and strong ( like 250-300 lbs at 10% body fat or lower) and still be able to run around playing rugby and other cardio intensive stuff I don't follow rugby, so I don't know the size of the players. You do. How many good 250 - 300 lb rugby players do you see?...

I never use the weights themselves for more than an hour (that's about all it takes to do what I want in a day), but I've sometimes played racquetball or basketball immediately after a weight session. Is that likely to be a problem? Michael If you're a hard-core lifter looking to bulk up, yes. But ...

Re: 1 hour rule

For example, what factors might effect the optimal duration of a workout? Do individual factors like age and level of training change the equation? Age definitely plays a factor in workout duration. Recent studies indicates that cortisol levels rise markedly in trainers over 40 after 60 - 75 minute...

Keeping it real. ;-)

No leg work though - even thugs are wimps when it comes to squatting

I noticed on an article linked in a thread about wide/close grip curls that the author mentioned quit doing an exercise after 2 to 3 months and change to a new one.

Jerry Brainum's Take

I posed my question on HIIT vs LSD to Jerry Brainum of Ironman Magazine. His answer is here . The short of it: For training the cardiovascular system, HIT interval training is without question superior to LSD style of endurance training. The reason relates to the same reason why you gain muscle when...

VoK is the one who's trying to get ripped, not me. But if you must know, I'm 6' 6" and I weigh 225. I have no idea what my body fat percentage is, but it must not be too high, since I can see my abs ;-)

Here is more info on PHA workouts

I've done circuit training before (most recently using the XpressLine at NYSC), but never with the upper-body/lower body switch. It makes sense though - it avoids local fatigue.

Thanks for the heads up
