What I Consider Bad Habits

I consider these bad habits and bad addictions that people have. And in my opinion I think it’s better for people to break free from them. I don’t think any of them are healthy or necessary to function. 1. Pornography This is like one of the number one addictions people have today. Young men watch

Excuses

We all make excuses and even I make excuses from time to time. However, if you make up an excuse sometimes you are lying to yourself. You need to level with yourself sometimes. Do I really have a legitimate reason not to do something? Or just an excuse? Am I really tired or just lazy?

Time

Time is your most valuable resource in life and one day you’ll simply run out of it. You get in your car to go somewhere and it has a gas tank with a certain amount of gas in it. Imagine you just keep driving; well someday it’s just going to stop. Just like all of

Failing

Failure to do something you’ve always wanted to do simply sucks. There’s no other way to put it. It sucks so much that for some people they really cannot deal with it and they end up committing suicide. Just imagine something you’ve always wanted in life and you just failed to do it. And people

Reverse Pyramid Training

Reverse Pyramid Training or RPT is similar to drop sets and kind of basically is drop sets. Your first set is your heaviest set (that doesn’t mean you don’t warm up first). Your second set is 10% lighter and your third set is 10% lighter than your second set. Some people are really promoting reverse

Rest-Pause Training

Rest-Pause training is something you can use to break strength and mass plateaus. But it can also cause you to overtrain if you go to failure all the time. Rest-pause training dates back to the 60s and alot of bodybuilders have used it to train or are at least aware of it. There have been

100s Training

This is a strange type of routine where you do 100 total reps of one exercise. It’s not the same as 10×10 or GVT however. Take your 10 rep max and use 40-50% of that. Rest between sets is 10-30s. I just recomend you use it for bodybuilding purposes ie if your arms aren’t growing

German Volume Training

German Volume Training or 10x10s is a good routine for both strengrh and size. You have to monitor overtraining on it and I don’t recommend it much for novices. I believe it was popularized first by Charles Poliquin. Phase 1 This is done for six cycles, so after you’ve done every workout 6 times you

Agonist/Antagonist

I like to split this one up as: Chest/Back, Shoulders/Arms and Legs. So the set up will be similar to a push/pull/leg routine. If you can’t do chin ups or pull ups do lat pulldowns. If you can’t do barbell or dumbbell rows do seated cable rows. Examples Chest/Back: Bench 3 x 8-12 Incline DB

Upper/Lower

The upper/lower split is another good split and its straightforward. Upper is your upper body focus and lower is your lower body focus. Example Routine Upper body (Strength-focus) Bench Press 3×5 Seated DB Press 3 x 8-12 Barbell Row 3 x 5 Weighted Chinup 3 x 5 EZ Bar Curls 3 x 8-12 Upper body
