The after-effects are BEYOND worth it.
Woke up swollen but not sore.
~20 hours afterwards: Less swollen, a little sore.
500 Dumbbell Curls (20#)
500 Sit-Ups (minimum, old-school style)
250 Squats with 2x-20# dumbbells.
FOR ME, this method is more effective at building size than lifting heavy. Son & employees noticed after last month's challenge.
Lifting Heavy = Small incremental gains (mini-plateaus).
Added bonus: STAMINA
Something strange about this...
Consider Navy Seal training.
Guys are stronger than sh!t, hard as rock, WITH STAMINA.
This reminds me of something I forgot about, from 15+ years ago:
One year I sponsored Paintball games w/ Customers & Employees.
Capture the Flag, 20 Men, TRENCH WARFARE
A BRUTAL blood-bath
Guys shooting each other @ point blank range
4-6 hours DUCK-WALKING in trenches
Toughest Working MoFo's in America, now waddling like old geezers.
Why you walking funny?
LOL You too?
Next week, most us joked pants were tighter around our quads.
What works best to gain both strength AND size?
Conventional= "Lift Heavy, Fewer Reps"
Fine but I don't need Pro BB "bulges on top of my bulges".
I need USEFUL strength.
Wanna be able to scratch my own chin.
If I can't hang on for a minimum 4 hours (sometimes >12), it's going to hurt.
If I can get (back) there sooner, without waiting in line for the squat cage or the incline bench at the gym, FANTASTIC.
Also curious if you want to try out this endurance challenge game we just did yesterday?
Say, like once or twice a week?
