Re: Chin up advice

Thank you so much.

Is it good to do only partial pullups instead of full range deadhang? Deadhangs are so hard on the elbow. But will partial pullups (where you start at midrange and then go to top) help in building lats?

Re: Chin up advice

thanks for the tip, eiji. But doing it throughout the day is not practical if you're a working person. Can GTG be done within a certain time, like any regular workout? For instance, doing 16 sets of 1 rep would be 16 reps. So can one do 16 reps in twenty minutes or so?

Chin up advice

Hi friends,

I can only do 3 chins max, so I am planning on doing just one rep at a time so that per day I'd have completed 20 reps. Is this a good method? If I do 3 in a row, I'd have exhausted myself - so I thought I could do only one at a time.

Will this eventually help me do more?

Thanks.

Re: Rob's High Intensity Training Log

Hi Rob, five pounds seem too little, Drew Baye says 25 pounds is possible in the first six months.

I follow BBS approach but use dips instead of bench sometimes, or rows instead of pulldowns.

Re: Rob's High Intensity Training Log

Hi Rob thanks again. I worked out last Sunday so if there is no increase in size by this Sunday does that mean I haven't fully recovered? Must I measure my arm or chest with tape to find out if overcompensation has taken place?

Re: Rob's High Intensity Training Log

Hi Rob, thanks for posting this, it is inspiring. I am training in the HIT style, one set to failure (sometimes with rest pause) but only once every week, 5 compound exercises. You said recovery is important but i feel even one week gap is not enough since I am an ectomorph with poor recovery capaci...

HIT for bodyweight exercises?

Hi Everybody, :D I understand that High intensity training is done for a brief period, low frequency and low volume. But I am experimenting with bodyweight movements like dips, atlas pushups, diamonds etc. I am doign two sets of each - so basically 6 sets for the chest . Is that overkill, considerin...

Re: Cutting while being thin

Hi CO, ppl say one shouldn't do ab exercises because it will increase belly size (and that's not good when one has belly fat).

Re: Cutting while being thin

Thanks, Gaia. Just two questions. Is white rice okay? Another thing occurred to me. At some point (let's say at 77 kilos), my caloric intake just won't be enough to add weight. So weight will naturally stop increasing at that point. But since my lifting will continue, will stomach fat automatically ...

Cutting while being thin

I weigh only 72 kilos but have a little fat around stomach. So I thought maybe I could go on a 500 calorie deficit while lifting weights. I am assuming this would target stomach fat (since i have no fat elsewhere). So even if I lose 3 kilos, at least those 3 kilos will be from stomach area. Once tha...

Gaining 2kg per month?

I want to clean bulk, not dirty bulk. In the last four months, I have gained 7 kilos ... so basically I've gained almost 2 kilos each month. Is this a good rate, good in the sense that the 7 kilos will be mostly muscle? I've been working out during those months. My point is, if a person gains too mu...

Do i ignore squats?

If I do legwork like squats or deadlifts my body feels tired. Sometimes I even get fever the next day probably because my body cant take the strain.

So do I just focus on upper body and ignore legs?

Eating too much?

If u eat too little, the body becomes tired etc. So u will know at once that u arent getting enough food. But how to know u r eating too much wthout counting calories or checking weight? Is there some indication in the body, like too much farting etc.?

Is 75 kg a good weight?

Is 75 kg a good weight for a guy 5'10 or 5'11? Good in the sense is it enough to do body recomp with that weight?
