Tim: You have to stop posting while drunk, I picked up several spelling mistakes!
Glex: There are some big guys that just seem to have big calves regardless. A friend of mine has huge calves, especially for a petite girl. She claims its from ballet!
Philo: Yes I have read that one. I think the goal with that is slightly different, as it aims at post tentanic facilitation. This is more Ian King style training.
Serb: And rightly so!!! In pounds that would even be too light for a backoff day. Although it wasn't that long ago that a leg day involved really light stuff. Its been two years since my knee injury. Since that time I went from not being able to squat (or bend my knee) to doing parallel squats with 180kgx8, to then doing ATG with my current stuff (the 132.5kg would be ~5RM). I think that the ATG is so much harder to do, and seems a more natural squat.
Did an upper body workout last night.
But you know I'm not going to comment on it. Instead I'm going to have a brief shot at all the recent knockers on this board. This is all addressed to those that have been critical of "lightweights" giving advice.
I weigh roughly 185lbs (at 12%). Last November I had hit a peak of 190 (didn't test but I thought I was leaner than 12%) when I was touring the USA. I soon after crashed from a double allergic reaction and have only gained back half the weight I lost. Now on my light frame anywhere between 180 and 190 looks quite muscular, but well proportioned. Any heavier and my head starts looking too small.
Of late there has been a number of posts by people condemning lifters for not being heavy enough. These posters are usually naive, stupid, ignorant, or just plain arseholes, but where do they get off having a go at me?! Just because I choose not to be 220lbs this somehow makes my knowledge and experience invalid. By this logic there isn't a trainer on Earth qualified to help some of these guys.
So I'd just like to say; If you think you are so hardcore, if you think you are so big and strong, come and train with me for a week!! If even one of you pathetic losers can walk in my shoes for a week I doubt any of you would open your big fat mouths again!
