  1. Damn 3 hours is a heck of a long time to workout.
  2. Do you mean like Arnold Presses? Or like swinging your arm in a windmill fashion?
  3. Pro's and Con's Please... What are the main benefits to doing a double workout split routine. I've seen a lot of bodybuilders do this gearing up for a competition but can this be done successfully normally to help increase development. Can it hurt and be over training. I am planning are giving myself a goal that by Jan. 1st 2011 I will have packed on 20 lbs of good clean muscle. I am wondering if sticking to my 5 day single workout routine would be better or working to split that up with maybe a 2x day workout for a few months or longer Thanks for you input

  5. Thanks for the info. I'm gonna try pistol squats and stationary lunges. I just have a real hard time with the pistol squats for some reason maybe its balance or who knows I never can get them down right. Guess I just have to practice them more.
  6. I have a strong tendency to favor my right side. My right quad is larger than my left so I am trying to even them out. I do normal squats heavily I just always notice that I push more with my right leg, I figure if I throw in on isolation exercise it will help out.
  7. Yeah fantastic numbers. I wish I was hitting that mark. Keep it up!
  8. Not Pistol. Lunge Squats. Same thing as a regular Barbell Squat except I balance my leg on the bench behind me. This is it one not on a smith machine. http://videos.bodybuilding.com/watch/29901/exercise-guides-one-leg-barbell-squat-maleshort-clip
  9. I've added the One Legged Squat to my leg routine, however I truly hate it due to the fact I need to use the Smith Machine to balance myself since doing it with the barbell just ain't gonna cut it. I am not a fan of how the Smith makes my back feel when doing this exercise. I am wondering would I get nearly the same isolation on an individual leg with a stationary lunge?
  10. I like VeganEssentials use Anytime Fitness. Its a great place and their key cards can be used anywhere in there is a location. With regards to Canada. If I am not mistaken Snap Fitness is based out of Canada so there cards will work here and there. There is a Snap Fitness down the road from me as well and they actually do have alot of free weights. Only thing the don't have is a power rack. How busy one place is varies on its location and the time you go. If I hit the gym around 3-4pm its packed. But get there around 7pm and its me and maybe 2 other people. Friday nights and nearly anytime on Saturday and Sunday a handful of people. I think I weight to use a bench once is the year I've been going there.
  11. I will vary use of both. I like to use dumbells in conjunction on my chest and arms due to the fact that I have a tendency to over push/press/pull with my right arm. With dumbells I can even the weight out and get a distributed lift with both my arms. I would never just use one or the other unless I had no other choice.
  12. This weekend i came across an old edition of Flex Magazine. It was February 2010. I don't normally read Flex but I figured hey what the hell it was a throwback to Arnold and his days. All that aside there was an article about Jay Cutler and his leg workout that it did this year to help him get ready for Olympia. What i thought was odd was the fact that he said he did not do conventional squats anymore that he used a smith machine. Now my question is this...why? Why would he use the Smith machine, I was my impression that a Smith puts your body in an unnatural angle when doing squats and that it is potentially more harmful. Am I wrong? Does working a Smith on squats actually just work your legs more than your entire body when doing conventional squats. Thoughts?
  13. Anyone doing this? I am thinking about trying to go back to a 4 day split. Right now I'm doing a 5x5 program which is 3 days. I enjoy the 5x5 but I am thinking that a 4 day split will work better for me. My question is how would you incorporate a 4 day with more compound lifts. Most 4 day splits seem to use alot more isolation it seems rather than compound. For me working out a muscle group once per week doesn't show the results I am looking for I need twice a week per group it seems.
  14. Ephedra or Ephdrenie never really had the potential in my opinion for weight loss / fat loss. It works great for sinuses I used to take it alot when my allergies were kicking my ass. But I used to know alot of people who took the pure form prior to its ban and they never really noticed anything. Its something you don't want to over use and since it doesn't show that good of results I would say don't bother with it since it does has side effects.
  15. I used to train 5 days a week. I saw some results but not many. I was training some compound but mostly isolation. I moved to a 3 day 95% compound routine and I have noticed the best gains so far. In my opinion as others have stated and has been stated alot here time and time again is get yourself a good 5 x 5 program (Stronglifts, Starting Strenght, etc.) If you hit a good strong high weight compound routine every say Mon, Wed, Fri and you eat right your gonna notice the gains.
