Training for a Wheelchair race?
Think about when do you ever hear young lads say, "I was in the gym yesterday and I just slaughtered my legs out of it", or "I want to get bigger stronger Legs"!No lads just gravited toward the bench, bicep curls, and sit ups. Well sorry ladies, but unfortunlately we don't use our arms to run. But in fairness just doing the bench, bicep curls and sits ups are not that bad (huh)? Thats if your goal is shit posture, shoulder problems, back problems, and to stay weak!
When will guys figure out that to get strong and bulid size you need to do heavy compound lifts CONSISENTLY. Deadlifts, Squats, Split Squats, Lunges, Chins, Bench, Push Ups, Rows, Overhead presses. Notice there is no pink dumbbell isolation exercise mention there (ie, curls, tricep extensions). Most guys just have a SERVRE CASE OF WEAKNESS, and badly need to start incorporating these lifts into their programs in a progressive manner.
Another thing our little weaklings need to recogonise also, is that the squat rack is might to be used for..... what for it..... SQUATTING, and its variations. So please, stop curling in the rack!!
So the moral of the story is, if you want to get strong and put on some size also. you need to start training your WHOLE body. Really hammer you LOWER body, and upper back in the process, and you will be ahead of 99% of guys out there.
