  1. Multipurpose bench

    looks cheap as. best I've seen to date is the iron master super bench. not cheap though and out of stock / not shippable.
  2. Multipurpose bench

    Hey guys I’m considering training from home, again… What I need is a solid bench that can do: Incline DB bench flat DB bench decline DB bench Overhead DB press Leg extension Leg curl that is all but has anyone found a bench as above that will actually give a good quad and hamstring workout With good tension throughout the Entire range of motion? I need something that will have good resistance at the bottom of the leg extension and at the top of the leg curl. my plan is to have a good bench like this and a good set of adjustable dumbbells. Pretty sure that’s all I need for a full body workout these days. I don’t care if it’s new or old, it just has to be fully functional. any suggestions? cheers
  3. Hi, I have no gear, only my car to lift. one of the PT's has a Tyre and some ropes in the carpark. we could take some weights down and do a firemans walk too. Ive wanted to do strangman training for many years but always told myself that Im not strong enough. but it doesnt matter what you lift, just to get involved have some fun. Anyone from Cityfitness Newmarket keen? maybe just once a week? Cheers Stephen
  4. Dimethyltryptamine

    good to know your average bodybuilder is into something else other than MMA... but that's stereo typing.. Been a while since I watched it but i was interested in the fact that human evolution could come in many forms, if it meant re opening the files on DMT for scientific research then why not. the fact that a large percentage of participants received "communications" was very interesting. maybe it could help unlock those unused brain cells, pathways, whatever you want to call it. must watch it again one of these days.
  5. Dimethyltryptamine

    Great Doco that, apparently shamanistic stuff DMT. would love to try it at least once but if it messed with my ceratonin levels i wouldn't go near the stuff! over a week without ceratonin is just bad bad bad.
  6. Hypertrophy Specific Training (HST)

    hmm thats an old school program for sure, not discounting it though. what it does have in common is the full body workout 3 x a week, maybe in this way the body is forced to adapt. could do with a weeks rest after 6 weeks of it though ("strategic deconditioning") and instead of working up to your 5, 10, 15RM's I guess you could just add an extra rep to your RM's each time. I guess just choose a whole bunch of compound exercises.
  7. Hypertrophy Specific Training (HST)

    oops heres the article btw http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/ridgely1.htm
  8. damn it i just lost the lot.. here we go again.. if anyones familiar with this kind of training can you help me understand this..: according to HST you find your 5 10 and 15RM's then you subtract 5% so say your 15RM is 100kg workout 1:77.38 workout 2:81.45 workout 3:85.74 workout 4:90.25 workout 5:95 workout 6:100 so you start with 77.38kg 15RM and finish with 100kg and at the end of the 2 week 15RM mesocycle youre still no stronger...? I dont get it.
  9. flavoured Creatine Mono in a paper/plastic bag??

    Thanks guys, thats awesome, I havent come across eatme before. "Caring for our environment Eat Me products are packed in environmentally friendly zip lock foil bags. And you won’t find a plastic scoop in your bag, because we know you already have a spoon at home somewhere." yeah I'll just add some flavour, it just helps get down the water as well.
  10. flavoured Creatine Mono in a paper/plastic bag??

    so I'll take that as an "I dont know" to a flavoured creatine mono in a food grade bag...
  11. flavoured Creatine Mono in a paper/plastic bag??

    of course I Recycle but thats a joke, ever watched Addicted to Plastic.
  12. Hey Guys, Im starting to feel a bit guilty about buying supps and going thru all these plastic containers... does anyone know of a Flavoured Creatine Mono source that comes in a "food grade" bag? Ive looked at trueprotein but there shipping cost is thru the roof.. Cheers
  13. yeah careful with the ol ligament AlBundy, i forget what its called, you can live without it.. but your "lifting" days will be over... I noticed a rapid strength gain on var, muscles will strengthen but tendons will struggle.
  14. mmm good memories. thats good tendon ripping shit... ping!
  15. training a muscle twice consecutively

    yeah well it wouldnt be overtraining if you got a full weeks rest... say 2 days of chest/bis the 2 days of back/tris and so on... proof is in the pudding though i guess, def sounds like a shock tactic though. i'll have to try it in a few weeks, just something to add to the arsenal i guess..
