Who uses smelling salts?
and for which lifts?
I tried them the first time last week on squats, I was going to go for 4-5 reps but I got so shaky on the 3rd rep that I pitched forward a bit out of my groove and had to rack it.
Is it normal to be a bit jittery after ammonia or was I just...
100 total reps done over a series of sets with the final sets requiring maximum effort. Maximum effort leads to maximum muscle recruitment.
How does this work?
Performing high reps with a lighter load close to muscular exhaustion will add size to your muscles. This is made possible due...
My humble view is that deadlifts are overrated as an exercise, beyond their importance to powerlifting.
I tend to agree with this article
I also say this despite that lift being probably my best lift of the three powerlifts. as a...
This coming weekend, I'd be doing one exercise for the biceps and one for the triceps. These would include 100 reps for each muscle group, made up of sets of around / between 20-40 reps, depending on the rest time between sets and the load. Yes, an increase in intracellular hydration is my aim...
What would you consider as a light workout week?. Slowing the reps down?, 12 rep exercises just lifting enough not to failure and reducing your volume?.
just asking as my light weeks are still creating me doms due to always contracting and using TOT technique but not as much strain as a...
Kirill Sarychev. Raw bench. Pretty clean reps.
No bench shirt? Tick.
Decent judging? Tick.
Spotters not helping? Tick.
Proper weights and equipment? Tick.
Natty? Um, prolly not. But dayyyyham. Thats a good bench.
Hi guys, I have something I would like to get comments/input please.
I was training in my gym the other day with my nephew Paul. He is 30 about 6 foot 3 inches tall, around 95 kilos and works in a maintenance crew falling trees. He is the climber whereby he climbs to the tops of the trees...
Everyone knows the effectiveness of a giant set, where more than two exercises targeting the same muscle or muscle group are done one after another. Similarly, everyone is familiar with drop sets and the burning pump they give a worked muscle. This triceps' giant set does have three exercises...
AUSBB- Australian Bodybuilding Forum Challenge Board!
Here you can post videos of your impressive feats of strength. The name of the game is to perform as many strict reps as you can with a given weight. Film the whole set, and get a close up of the plates used so we can verify the weight...
The day before yesterday, I went to do some pull-ups - the kind where you grab the bar from behind, palms facing you - and as I started, there was this horrible ripping noise* from inside of the elbow of my right arm. It definitely sounded (and felt - although the pain wasn't much) as though...
This is yet an experiment within an experiment. Most of you are aware of what I'm doing in my training journal, and that I no longer squat..., or do any leg pressing/lunging movements. So the question is this: do you think I can build my legs to a respectable size (or at least to their former...
Wasn't sure if I should put this in the body building or power lifting section, so I just put it here.
Not sure if such a program exists, but I was thinking the other day while driving to work for an hour, I might give Squats and Deadlifts daily a run for a little while and see.
Yes, how far into your cut (time length or bf% reduction progress) before you realised you can no longer progressively overload OR its affecting your training performance in terms of reps and sets?? And so begins the dreaded strength loss.
Or would it be reasonable to say that as long as the...
