"The athlete who can press 100 kg will out punch the athlete who can only press 50 kg. That is a fact." - Kenny Croxdale That's not neccissarily true. For example, at 5'10" and 150 lbs, I doubt Bruce Lee would have impressed anyone with his bench press, but he could hit VERY hard because he had bli...

When I was younger I did a lot of kickboxing. Every strike in kickboxing comes from the core of the body, thus developing just muscular strength for a roundhouse style kick (eg leg ext) will not develop strength for kicking, Karate is a power based movement. Research shows the greater the strength ...

I can see the stability benefits, my father is 82 with major neuropathy from the knees down, and he just finished a class with a physiotherapist who was working with him to help him walk better, and yes, they use balance boards and various things, and yes, they helped him a lot, with his balance in...

I don't know about weighted squatts, but unweighted they are great. But I mainly train for performance not for muscle gain. They are great for developing foot strength Instability devices such as the swiss ball are very poor at developing strength. I provide one research artcle, see above, the expl...

you will be using more muscles, even if they are not the ones directly related to the chest/shoulders or whatever. Kinda like squatting and deadlifting...using so many muscles is why it works. I understand what you are trying to say. However, a bench press on a solid bench is more akin to squat and...

Re: Swiss Ball Exercises?

Who here thinks it would build muscle better to do some Swiss Ball benches and seated presses? I am just wondering if it would only target my core more...or make my chest muscles do some more work! The Swiss ball works the stabilizer and core muscles. However, these unstable devices like this are n...

Re: crush grip and dip bar recommendations?

I'm looking for equipment to work my crush grip Not all forearm strength training builds "crush" grip. IronMind has a great article on the different kind of grip strength and the different products they sell to address the grip strength you want or need. IronMind even provides a list of sports indi...

Re: Snatches

Where would you place the snatch or hang snatch in a legs/push/pull split program? Would it be advisable to perform snatches late in ones workout after pressing or pulling movements, or would this be asking for a shoulder injury? Snatches are a power movement. Power movements are best performed at ...

Super Slow uses a 10 second eccentric and 5 second concentric movement. The turn around, amoritization phase, is slow...more like a 1-2. There appears to be several lifting tempos that lay claim to the name "Super Slow." I'm only familiar with this one : ' Stephen, Wikipedia (the source you quoted)...

With Super Slow, there is no rest during the rep...meaning no lockout at the top or resting of the ...

Re: Slower reps

To Kenny...do you know if it works just as good? I guess keep in mind right now I am looking to build muscle, not necessarily strength (although the two go hand and hand obviously...right now I am focusing more on muscle).
The Power Hooks work well.

Re: Slower reps

Very recently, my sister got me a book from the library. It is called The Home Workout Bible, I think it is made by Men's Fitness (I don't have it right here in front of me). I thought it was a fairly decent read (I don't know if anyone else has had a chance to check it out.) It has a whole section...
