Posted this rant on facebook, thought I should post it here. Although for some reason no girls coem to this thread, maybe someone wants to share such a rant with girls they know who go to the gym:

I see it all the time at the gym, and feel I should point it out for any girls wanting to get in shape. The fact is, girls do NOT have to work out different than men. It doesn't work that way. Just think of it this way. If a guy does PERFECT training and has a PERFECT diet, he is going to have a great male physique. If a woman does perfect training with perfect diet, do you think she'll get a great male physique? NO! It doesn't work that way. HUMANS need to train the same way.

So if you want to get in shape, stop the million ab crunches and leg squeezes and weak ass cable pulls. Go do some squats and chinups and get HAWT!

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

That's what I would do! In fact probably should just drop BB bench unless you are getting into power lifting.

One of the many reasons I think im going to quit FW and make SC my permanent gym. Those trainers not only walk around like they own the goddamn place, but they give me shit for dropping weights and using chalk what do they do with their clients? All machines + smith .. because its easiest to teach.

If I was a newb, I wouldn't need a professional to tell me how to use a machine that has perfectly good instructions written on the side of it .. I'd want a trainer to show me deadlift/squat/bench/OHpress/cleans/powercleans etc.

Another new PB set tonight during my arm workout. Overhead tricep extension, full set of 8 with the 105lb dumbbell. That might not seem that big for most people but I have long ass arms (elbow tip to fingertip is 20").

It's always tough to stay motivated during the "offseason" of winter but this thread has really helped keep me focused. Thanks all.

i use to do oh tri extension with a DB (highest was 80) but it really bugged my shoulder so i started doing it with barbell, i thought it hit the spot a LOT more, have you tried it ?

@skinny : ok thanks! will do ! so i guess no 225 bench by the end of my 12 week stronglift =[

uhm no i haven't. But haven't been doing incline since starting stronglift. when i'm done with this, i'll be going back to a reg routine and will obviously incorporate incline and will try this. Thanks

Watching that makes me want to workout so bad..1 year and this is the first week I have had off since ive been sick..

Speaking of dead lifts though another good technique I started doing is using a Riser under my feet for deadlifts..Just heard about it a few weeks ago

Riser under your feet? Usually for DL you want your feet as low as possible to make the ROM a bit shorter. I take my shoes off personally

yeah dude thanks for that tip earlier, i thought my technique was wrong when doing squats and deadlifts, something didn't feel right in those running shoes. So much easier

Yeah man just like in the pic (except for that green elastic thing). cause if you think about it with the 45s on the bar that's like 8 inches or whatever above the ground you arent taking advantage of. And with the riser you can go that much lower, you should try it, it works really good.
