    I second this, although you can find them cheaper on craigslist and elsewhere. If you already have 400 lb weight this should work. If you plan to use the trap bar as an alternative to squats,...

    Next time, write better English. From what I gathered:

    Week 1: 2 sets of 5
    Week 2: 1 set of 6, 1 set of 5
    Week 3: 2 sets of 6

    If that's correct, then yes, it is a form of progressive...

    OP, don't listen to everyone else, they're just h8ers. Muscle confusion is real, it's just very difficult. That's because the muscles are wily and cunning. They're always watching out for your...

    Yeah... I see your point, but treadmill seems less preferable for a number of reasons.

    Technically speaking, the rectus abdominis is a single muscle -- no upper and lower. But aside from that point, to answer your question I'd go with reverse crunches or dragon flags.

    Me too, but for four minutes on a bike every time--the original tabata protocol. The highest I've seen HR go doing this is 188. Usually gets to low 180s.

    Not sure I understand what you mean. If you're suggesting that benching 100s is easier than putting 200lb on the bar, then I would guess you're in the minority though. I find I get deeper stretches...

    Didn't you ask the same question like two days ago? Short answer, sweating doesn't matter. Just follow the program and keep adding weight with each session in the gym. If you feel like you're not...

    I think the analogue is whether you can bench 225 on a barbell with nothing but a barbell and a free-standing bench. I.e., the bench you'd normally use to do DB pressing with. By your logic, if you...
