How Many Sets And Reps For Biceps And Triceps

May 30, 2007 | Comments Off

Trent posed this question to me “How many sets and reps should I do each for Biceps and Triceps?”

The answer is 6 sets…. or less. Anymore and you will be overtraining your biceps or triceps.

Reps is a bit different, this varies upon what you want to achieve and there are various theories on this, and they all work.

So which is right for your, and why only 6 sets for biceps or triceps?

Don’t Dirty Bulk

Dirty Bulking: The process of a bodybuilding bulking diet eating ‘dirty’ or ‘unclean’ foods

What this means is when you dirty bulk you eat anything. Fats, sugars, anything you can shove down your throat. Dirty bulkers eat pizza, KFC, McDonalds, Soda pops, candy bars, in general the more calorie the better according to them. The saying “A calorie is a calorie” is often bandied around.

Yeah, but what about your micronutrients, a stable muscle growth promoting insulin level and minimising health threatening fats such as Trans Fats that significantly increase the chance of heart disease and is responsible for depositing fatty layers around your internal organs, giving you a pot belly or beer belly in the process.

Anyone who thinks eating 5000 calories of junk foods a day is the same as eating 5000 calories of lean steak, vegetables and fruits is an idiot.

Chins And Pulldowns For A Wide Back

May 21, 2007 | Comments Off

If you want to get a wide back you need to concentrate on Chin Ups and Lat Pulldowns.

These two exercises target the lat muscles. The lat muscles are the muscles you see sticking out under your arms from the front and are the muscles you see when you do a front lat spread, they are the muscles that give you the appearance of having a wide back.

Don’t forget to do your Deadlift or Bent Over Rows first as these are your mass exercises, then hit into either of these width exercises to fill out your soon to be wide back…

Correct Squatting Technique

May 21, 2007 | Comments Off

Correct Squatting technique or form is often a topic of debate between powerlifters and bodybuilders but there is one thing both muscle groups agree upon – that 1/2 squats aren’t going to help anyone.

Read this email I recieved from Tyranez the other day

Read your post on leg training on your picturethread and it helped me a great deal, as I have been stuck in that heavy weight, short dip thing for years.

When I read that you keep yours up with doing slowreps, 3 sets of 15 I figured  I would give that a try,and “holy cow!!!”, I went from doing short 4 rep sets of 400lbs with a crap range of movement, to finding out I start to black out at 12 deep reps with only 200 pounds. I was shocked as to how much my heavy weight with bad form was killing my gains. So I put the weight down even lower, to the point I could hit 15 reps for solid 3 sets, and now I can hardly walk. I know I can make good gains doing this.

This is the same feeling that I experienced when I first started using a correct squatting technique with good form…

Lower Chest Exercises

May 20, 2007 | Comments Off

How do you grow your lower chest?

I have been asked that question a  few times now. My first thought is what is the pre-occupation with growing your lower chest?

I mean personally I think decline presses are a waste of space in the gym and should be thrown out to make room for more useful equipment.

Maybe some people do have deficient lower chests, but I have never seen it, either way here is the best lower chest exercises you can do…

300 Workout

May 17, 2007 | Comments Off

I have seen the 300 workout written up in many places on the web as being the new magical workout to get fit quick and look like the Spartans in the 300 movie.

Personally I think the 300 workout is a bunch of teenage boys getting over excited at their keyboards. For an unfit fat nerdy kid to think that he could transform his body by this magic workout in less than 2 months is selling fantasies to the desperate.
