    Since resources are limited they have to find other ways to get it in. Inmates are forcibly innovative, use a lot of volume, never miss workouts(they don't have much else to do), are peer pressured...

    It's a standing around the world(though it has many other names and ways of being done). Good exercise, not commonly seen much these days. A real shame cause they're pretty effective haha.

    Because full body is hard to get an ideal amount of volume and seems to prioritize frequency, when I do those routines I use the opposite end of the spectrum - going to failure. Allows to stay...

    A muscle that works longer, works harder. But, growth needs more than just that factor in play.

    The way I heard it, any rep range can produce a similar hypertrophic result so long as it's taken close enough to failure on each set. And actually, some of the craziest burns I ever got for legs was...

    Push pressing is quite a valuable tool to keep on the backburner for breaking stalls, and there's gonna be quite a few of them that happen with this exercise. Learning the technique to it is such a...

    Failure is the body naturally telling us what our limits are as human beings, and when to stop the current activity. It's a great system, requires no planning/programming, just pick a weight and lift...

    If you're actually going to failure, the point where that muscle has absolutely nothing left to contribute to the exercise anymore - one set of that is like doing 4 or 5 sets using rep ranges. One...

    I was doing upper/lower for months but thought i'd check out a synergist type split for awhile to see how I respond to it:

    (16 sets a muscle group, rest 1-2 days after every 7 days are complete)...

    Like barbell curls, pullups, shrugs, rows, etc - the press thankfully is another lift you can use a supplemental technique on when your strength leaves you, to finish the rep target. Do the strict...

    Farmer's walks, power cleans, high pulls, power shrugs, monkey rows(safer than uprights and targets same areas) there's a number of ways. Question is if you want to directly work them or not, traps...

    Can't say much about DC as i've never used that program, but for the longest time all i'd ever use was full body(for years all I ever did was deadlift, squat, pullup, clean n press, bench, row, dips,...

    For the most part I tend to avoid machines, and stick with free weights and bodyweight exercises(so I have something of a bias towards any machine ever), but I did try it out of curiosity once....

    Just my opinion, but beyond 2 minutes between sets and it's like you're not trying anymore, waste of time and efforts. Maybe it's a thing in strength based activities like powerlifting and strongman,...

    Being front loaded alone is reason enough to nail quads more than back squats do. It's hip dominant, the glutes move back, a tendency of forward lean instead of an upright lean like front squats...
