    Being a real lifter is not about a number, or a medal, or somebody else telling you that you are a real lifter. It is about commitment to the iron and strength of purpose.

    Unfortunately I see women doing these all the time. I'm sure they think they're "burning" the fat (love handles) when in fact, all they're doing is adding size to their waist. You will NOT catch me doing these anytime

    It's any move that starts with you lying on the floor with a weight (or two) and end with you standing on your feet.

    No matter what exercise you do, somebody will come along and say that it's bad for you because of _________. Like they've read the most recent "research" that suddenly proclaims that that exercise will cause you a great deal of harm and is bad for your _______.

    The only time I've had an injury from doing any exercise was when I was squatting and a hot girl walked by with her ass hanging out of her shorts and breasts bursting out. I instinctively turned to get a better look while squatting and wrenched the hell out of my back.

    Other than that incident, I've done all harmful exercises without injury.

    Not at all sure what they are called. I saw a guy who was in pretty good shape doing them at my old gym so I incorporated them in my shoulder/trap day. Works really well and I've never seen anyone else doing them.


    Take 20's in each hand and let your arms dangle by your sides. Raise them straight up with elbows locked until the weights are about mouth high (your hands should be facing each other). After that expand your arms out to the sides mimicking a cross (elbows still locked). Keep them extended for a 3 count then come back in and then down.


    Hopefully that will make sense.

    Cambered bar presses; flat, incline or decline. A few of the guys use it now & then for incline & decline same, myself. You really need to be careful not to go too deep.

    Just talked to a guy that used to belong to Planet Fitness. He quit that gym. They wouldn't let him do standing military presses. The presses had to be seated.

    Being a real lifter is not about a number, or a medal, or somebody else telling you that you are a real lifter. It is about commitment to the iron and strength of purpose.

    Weighted pull ups.

    I've seen lots of people doing different types of cable pull downs on machines, but I've rarely seen many people hook weights to a dip belt and proceed to do pull ups.

    I love'em.

    The reason you don't see very many peeps doing weighted pullups is because most peeps have a hard time with just bw......let alone adding weight....

    As for me.......I've just worked my way up to a 25lb and 2 1/2lb plate for 9 reps.....

    Not to long ago (maybe 1 1/2 years or so I could only get 11 with just bw..

    maybe...

    That might be true but the simple fact is you're causing, according to soft tissue expert and frequent contributor to ironman mag, Joseph Horrigan, a good deal of shearing to the cartilage in your knees by artificially stopping the the lift where stress on that cartilage hits it at a weak and thin area.

    To be honest I was just being a smart a$$ because we can get some pretty heated arguements going over this subject. I admit i have curled in the squat rack but only after making sure nobody was doing legs at the time. I see your new around here, so I'm sure you will see one of these disputes soon. welcome to the O35!

    WTF?

    I left when I saw that the biggest dumbells were 70s. Or maybe it was 60s.

    ummm.....

    ...but the point was that there is no need for a non-PLer to do them. You could get the same pump by doing partials with dbells in that range with out adding to the wear and tear to the shoulders of initiating the lift at such an artificial starting point. Actually since the the fibers in the pecs don't fire as effectively in that range, you'd probably get an even better pump by doing dbell partials from the bottom portion of the stroke, ie. x-reps ala Steve Holman and Jonathan Lawson.
