    What’s going on?

    In the 1970's "fitness" came of age. One of the major reasons was the work done by Kenneth Cooper,M.D. His book "Aerobics" and its systematic approach to fitness were a huge factor in "fitness" being accepted by the mainstream public. On the heels Dr. Cooper came Arthur Jones and his...

    Yes. Face up to it. Things are not good. Everything is changing...a lot of it changes before our eyes. And yes, things were always changing but "animal faith" taught us that there was an evolution towards the good going on...I get no deep feeling that that is happening now. OK, I'm an old...

    What’s going on?

    Let’s get rid of all these categories; bodybuilders, powerlifters, nutrition let’s keep it simple, coz it is, it should be a healthy endeavour, but more than ever this industry is full of corruption and criminals. Let’s start talking truth, lifting is (to me) a very personal thing, whatever you...

    Tips to get this place thriving again ?

    Lots of ways to get strong but too many people telling others it’s the only way. Tired of the bodybuilder, powerlifters, CrossFit and such, it’s really given proper strength training a poor reputation. Too many choices (usually bad ones) having all the categories under the banner AUSBB is...

    Box / platform for stiff legged deadlifts

    It doesn’t need to be anything overly complicated, I’d just make something out of timber, so you can at least do exercise whilst keeping an eye out on FB market place or eBay. After time you might just be happy with box you made.

    You’ve picked a very good option in the Chin Rack, if you can pick a line where the srtart resembles an OH press and the finish resembles the squat (back on bar) don’t worry too much about hand positions but try the one where the biomechanics are right (for you), the important part is where the...

    Before the machine version old timers would lie the length of the bench head hanging over the edge using a dumbbell which was preferable , the goal was to touch the floor with the dumbbell to achieve the all important stretch, raise the DB up only just short of where the resistance falls off

    It’s not easy. It’s why Arthur Jones designed the “machine” pullover but that machine is more like an upper body squat. I have a question for you 0ni Why do you want to do them? I believe a combination of various types of pulling over time is a good practice. Chin-ups, all types or rowing. The...

    On its own (for a low back exercise) not ideal as the loading throughout the ROM is not good, as you raise the load is too fast. but using it as an adjunct to squatting and deadlifts from time to time is a good practice the movement loads the low back at full extension whereas the squat and...

    rehabbing lower back

    Stiff legged deadlifts but you gotta do it right otherwise it’ll make matters worse, the proper way to do this; Like any exercise one set once a week will produce very quick results if the exercise is done with full range of motion and resistance is there from full extension to full...
