    Chest Simplified!

    During earlier posts, despite popular belief, I was asked and did reply that I used various training methods, almost all applying intensity, but not necessarily volume!

    I was asked to post some and replied that I would as time went on....BUT, it was also suggested that I place a warning on all of my W/Os

    WARNING:

    There is a severve disease orginating in New Castle UK, it started amongst the Chicken Population, especially those POHM Chickens. It's what happens when you go past Wasted , you become WUSSTED . Now remember this only happens in Chickens, it has affectionately been named WUSSINGTON'S DISEASE!

    Symptoms are:

    Endless chirpping and flapping of the Chickens smaller appendages called wings......

    Frequent defication on other's posts, he also shits where he eats!

    Ruffled feathers everywhere, the brutality of a W/O tears the little Chicken up so much...he needs twice....err..no quadruple times the amount of rest that the big Sliver Back Gorilla needs.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    So short on time and limited spotting?

    Try this:

    4 SETS (back to back, one exercise then the other equals one set) ALL WEIGHTS PYRAMIDED UP!

    Pre-exhaust with one arm BB bench presses 8 reps, near failure on sets 3 & 4, this is a self spotting exercise, so go heavy but be warmed up.

    30 second rest

    Incline bench press 8, 6, 6, then very heavy to failure on the last two sets, single drop on set 4.... 3-4 reps to failure, then 6-8 for a second failure!

    Then three minutes rest, then repeat!

    So for example 8 reps one arm BB press, 30 seconds rest, 8 reps incline BB, three minutes rest, that's ONE SET!


    Last set, (set 4) looks like failure near 8 reps on OABBBP, 30 seconds rest, failure between 3-4 reps IBBBP, then immediate drop, failure near 6-8!

    Finish

    4 sets super slow Swiss Ball flyes, extra wide, increase weights each set, 15, 12, 10, 8 reps...pyramiding weights, 2 minute rest!

    That's all

    What's a one-arm BB bench?

    Anyhoo, that actually isn't so bad.

    I'm still not sure why you call two, quite obviously different sets, "one" set, but alas...

    P.s. Newcastle is one word.

    And just for shits and giggles, no I don't agree 100%, but think about it the way it was intended and prefaced....

    How can there be OT if there is Complete Recovery?

    Because complete recovery can take longer than people rest for.

    That's their problem if they don't take enough time to rest. In the book "Power Factor Training", it is stated that complete recovery can take as long as 2 weeks between W/O sessions. (with this type of training)

    Exactly rob, hence why lower volume approaches are a much better method.

    You can expect close to full recovery for bodyparts within the 7 days that (most) people rest for.

    This is actually a reason i'm not a big fan of 4 day splits cause it usually entails the delts being hit hard at least thrice weekly, resulting in a lack of "optimum" growth.


    W8, why rest more when you can take a lower volume approach and be recovered within the week so you can then do the workout again only this time doing more reps or using more weight?

    I found it mildy amusing.

    It started off with a lot of potential, but his lack of imagination ruined it.

    I don't mind being made fun of, especially when the humour is good, but it was nothing worth commending him on, which is why i've only mentioned it now.

    To each his own. I tend to be easily amused anyway.

    I will eventually post on one arm BB curls, but a one arm Barbell Bench press is as the title suggest...
    done with a Barbell, lying flat on a bench, holding it in the middle, and getting a full range press!

    It is about 2-3 times more difficult, especially with weight, than a DB press! You won't believe how much stabilization this movement requires! (because 3 .5 feet of bar is extended from each side of your hand, rhe leverage in effect, is incredible)

    THAT'S A VERY IRRESPONSIBLE COMMENT TO MAKE

    I'M IN THE BUSINESS, I HAVE A LOT OF COLLEGUES, I DON'T NECESSARILY BELIEVE IN THEIR METHODS OR PRINCIPLES!

    I HAVE BEEN CONSULTING FOR THE HEALTH FOOD BIZ FOR OVER 20 YEARS....I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED POSTING ON SUPPS YET.
    JUDGING ME BY A FEW POSTS IS VERY IMMATURE.

    TWICE NOW I HAVE STATED THAT I EMPLOY A LOT OF TRAINING METHODS. I TRAIN TRAINERS, AND ADVISE ATHLETES OF NATIONAL, INTERNATIONAL, PROFESSIONAL AND OLYMPLIC CALIPER.

    MAYBE YOU SHOULD SHOW MORE RESPECT, YOU MAY GET MORE IN RETURN!

    15 Years, started 1987 for about 6 months WT, then shifted to triathlon and ultra distance running, 1992 became very serious!
    The body became it's function, but only when I concentrated on Nutrtion (and recovery) did the gains solidify!.

    Taught in the PE Dept at UNLV for a few years, although Finance is my field (have taiught academics also)


    DP


    p.s On this issue, a friend once asked "How long does it take to go from intermediate to advanced BB?"

    I had to answer, "For some it's only a matter of several months to a few years, but for others, 20 years to a lifetime, and they still won't get it right!"
