I think he's referring to Mixed grip, not hook grip......I hope.

And people tear their biceps when they try doing the deadlift too fast with mixed grip. Calm yourself down and make sure the underhand grip is hanging.

Tears result when guys forget to have the underhand grip straight and have a slight bent/curl to it.

Think I pushed a little too hard today ... started with squats and ended up adding 15lbs to my PR ..felt good but heart rate was thru the roof and at the bottom of my heaviest set I saw stars, and on my last burn set I saw many stars lol (no PWO today though, just coffee).

By the time I got to my barbell hacksquats i was so tired that I collapsed on my second set at the bottom of my first rep. Got pissed off, got up, finished the set I failed and added another 50lbs and did 2 more sets. Then some more leg workouts but man ... I got such a pump in my legs today.

Then just for shits and giggles went over to the pulleys and loaded up the stack to do some douche curls.

... I can barely walk right now though...

Spoiler!









BTW did anyone else get the $14/month offer from SC thru email? It says its "exclusive" but i smell bullshit lol

Honestly, that won't work as well as you think it would, mainly because your body is genetically predetermined to store fat in certain areas. Instead of getting fat in areas where you would want it to go, you might just end up with a pot belly... If you want to bulk up, instead of eating junk food it might be good to eat food thats high in carbs/proteins... cus if your plan is to trim muscle after you get all that extra fat, you're not off to a better start than if you didn't eat all that junk food... It's very much possible to bulk & gain lean muscle mass at the same time. Essentially, what you're looking for is a higher lean muscle mass to fat ratio rather than an accumulation of fat... Just my 0.02 bro

I also got the same email as Dhillion.

+1 on marketing tactic on first 100 people. But it's fooling me. Heads up though, I wouldn't give a void check, just in case they have the same techniques as golds and other shady gyms.

Too bad the deadline is 31st, as it would have been smart to get a new credit card with a 500 dollar limit.

The main gym I go to only has 1 squat rack and 1 smith, and when its busy, I'll just use one of the flat benches to setup floor presses. Like this...

I got it too. I wanted to sign up for it but it requires a contract, which the email did not state.

Still a good deal though, may consider it.

About a year ago Mehdi removed them from the 5x5 routine because a lot of people weren't doing them. I did them everytime and had great results. It used to be:

Day 1

Squat 5x5
Bench 5x5
Barbell row 5x5
Push ups
Dips (weighted)

Day 2

Squat 5x5
Overhead Press 5x5
Deadlift 1x5
Pull ups (weighted)
Chin ups (weighted)

im sure cutting my carbs and replacing with fat and protein would net me better results, i just like my carbs too mch

im not really worried about the gut tho, im still very lean, i show abs anytime that im not bloated from eating my face off

Good luck! They are killer. I am trying to do them at the end of my workouts again.

Did GOMAD twice. Started with 4L. Gained about 15lbs the first time and 10lbs the second time. Highly recommend it. You will get lots of questions and people giving you advice about it especially at work. Be sure to lift heavy while doing it.

Doubtful, 2500 calories in a jug of homo. If your still eating 3 square meals a day, your gaining weight. It may be fat (if you don't train), but it will be weight

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.

I've only been lifting for 2 years and the first year of lifting I went from 165 to 175. 2nd year I did GOMAD twice and went from 175 to 200. I have started cutting, doing more cardio, eating primarily lean protein and veggies and am sitting at about 190lbs at 6'0".

Doing GOMAD trains you to eat more.
