Using the programme outlined here (part 1): http://www.impulseadventure.com/weights/bench-rick.html I found a spreadsheet online and used it. (it is attached as a zip because the forum will not allow me to upload xls files). My 1-RM on the bench press was 87.5 kg. I entered it and the following was ...

Re: My 3 Weeks of Smolov Jr. - Results And Comments

For your other lifts, did you push them hard, or were you in a sort of maintenance mode for those? I often wonder when I see specialization routines what I'd do about the rest of my body while concentrating on a particular lift. I was running stronglifts prior to doing this. So I just tried to get ...

My 3 Weeks of Smolov Jr. - Results And Comments

Using a calculator I found floating on the internet I entered my 1RM as 80kg and did three weeks. This was the three weeks of programming: http://i42.tinypic.com/20krh1l.png I got all the sets and all the reps on my own without a spot because I varied my rest between 2 to 5 minutes depending on how ...

Re: Choosing a Heart Rate Monitor

What do you all use and why? Loves? hates? When I was interested in cardio I used one to measure progress. I would run at the exact same speed for the same distance and write down my avg, max heart rate etc. It was encouraging to see my heart rate figures go down, and it provided me with more motiv...

Questions about the Good Morning Exercise?

I'm thinking about putting this exercise in my routine to get some hamstring development. Would just like to hear some other people's opinions/experiences with it. I also have a question: Q: Is is better to have the bar placed high (on traps) or low (on rear delts) for maximal development? Thanks!

Re: Height Gaining Training

Just by assuming better posture you could probably increase your height by an inch.
But that is not adding anything; just utilising your current height to the fullest.

Re: supplementing magnesium

It's my opinion that there is no need to supplement with magnesium. I have tried a zma supplement before and felt no difference to when I was not taking it. Same with 5-Methyl-7-Methoxy-Isoflavone. The two supplements are bogus in my opinion. If you feel like you are stalling in a lift then I sugges...

Question About Developing A Specific Muscle

Pretty sure that is the tricep, not sure of which head though.

How can I target this muscle in particular?

Re: SL progress

don't understand this part, do you mean you warmup with a push press then use a normal press for work sets? Robert I have done a deload several times. The OH press is very difficult for me with anything over 50#. I think when I posted something before about using my legs it was my understanding tha...

How did you go about strengthening the Rhomboids? Any exercises in particular?
