re blocks: one method i know is using about a 2 inch tall block right where the bar would hit your chest. this placement allows focus on the 'quick twitch' muscles. i know a lot of fighters, not power lifter, use this to increase over all speed of arm motion.

 

word.

 

in the strength game, in addition to working your lock out, it allows you fix sticking points.

if you stall at mid range on the press for instance you set the board so you rest right on that sticking spot then press.

 

another famous board press movement is the 'tricep hell' routine.

close grip board presses (1 finger on smooth part of the bar) and press till failure, switch board out, press till failure, switch board, press till failure, and so on.

 

its killer

Someone please answer me this:

 

Why is it that we are only supposed to be able to pack on 5-10 pounds of muscle a year

via weight training but folks fresh out of basic training (which is 12 or 16 weeks?) come out looking muscular?

 

I don't get it.

For me it was 12 weeks it can be longer depending on your job. Work out 2 times (mostly cardio and calisthenics) a day for 5 days a week. Some people are allowed weight training others are not its up to the drill sergeants. I think the biggest reason may be because of the diet. They strictly enforce 3 meals a day and you HAVE to finish everything on your tray and you are never allowed any cake. pie or any other desert.

What was the big difference between the deadlifts and the RDLs at the end. I noticed there was not as much bend in the knees for the RDL's, other than that Im missing what the difference is.

IF YOU'RE SKINNY AND ONLY GAINING 5 LBS PER YEAR. YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG. ALOT OF PEOPLE GAIN 30-40 EVEN 50 LBS IN THEIR FIRST YEAR OF WEIGHTLIFTING. OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN'T KEEP UP THAT UP FOREVER THOUGH OR EVERYONE WOULD WEIGH 300 LBS AFTER A FEW YEARS.

 

RDL'S ARE LIKE A STRAIGHT LEG DEADLIFT EXCEPT YOU KEEP THE BARBELL AGAINST YOUR LEGS AND PUSH YOUR HIPS BACK AS FAR AS YOU CAN AND ON THE REVERSE YOU EXTEND YOUR HIPS FORWARD AND FLEX YOUR HAMS AND GLUTES.

probably mostly to do with body fat percentage dropping... Hence looking more "jacked"

but also probably has a lot to do with dudes with no muscle at all and never doing chins, etc at all before

 

I think gaining weight is largely genetic and everyone is different

 

rdl... Legs don't have to be straight, They can be slightly bent....but as stated push your ass back and don't work the knee joint keep it stationary at all times. Pull from hamstrings.

 

Light fast partial romanian deads are great squat assistance work

^This, also they are constantly exercising.

 

Whenever i start a new sport i see my muscle building shift to the harder worked areas. Its probably similar with basic too.
