I see growth with DOMS....also "feels" like I'm progressing......pain acts like a psychological stimulant. If it doesn't kill you...... Grin

At least you are seeing progress. I personally didn't see any progress in my lower body size and strength until I started training it more frequently, and no DOMS. Have you ever trained arms couple of days after hitting chest and when doing dips or close grip benches everything feels tight and "springy" and you just fall right into the groove during your presses?  Imagine that same feeling with squats or deads.

Yes, backing up what I experienced.  Twice a week and I had no DOMS.

The only reason I quit doing twice a week, was that I got a cold twice in two months (and I never ever get sick) so I figured it was related and went back to once a week.

Huh

I don't know that much about Layne's PHAT protocol but I do know that too many heavy workouts (weights at or above 90% of 1rm) in a short period of time can wreak havoc on the CNS and the immune system. Especially for naturals with regular jobs and other obligations outside of the gym.

I have been expirementing on and off  with 3 days a week full body training for almost two years now. No DOMS during the 3 days a week split, when I switched back to a pull/push/lower split started getting DOMS again after several weeks. It is a bit tricky to get the 3 days a week full body split right with the amount of volume and intensity so that you can continue to make progress, more so with people who have been lifting for years and have a good amount of strength. Let me tell you it was quite a bitch at first.

This is one of the reasons I have switched from the traditional once a week per body part training. The main reason being that it didn't do anything for my progress. IMO consistent  extreme soreness is not a sign of a good workout but of the body's inability to properly adapt to the workouts. 
Tedim you mentioned that by hitting legs on Wed you are good to go by Sun, then why wait until next Wednesday to train them again.

It remains steady over the long term because "people" manage the markets.

FFS its just a bit of shiny metal.

It remains steady in relation to other commodities which follow supply and demand. In relation to the dollar? Well let's see... Average price of gold in 1952 $34.60 per ounce, in 2012 about $1830. But to be fair let's go back to before the financial meltdown say 2006, about $605. And let's not forget that the dollar is the strongest of the fiat currencies. What's even more interesting is that the price of gold has been pretty steady up until around 1914 and has been climbing ever since. What happened around this time? Oh yeah, the birth of the Federal Reserve.
56  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Federal Reserve wont let Germany see all its gold...lolol on: August 15, 2013, 10:25:35 PM
yea, when gold goes up its because it rocks, when it goes down blame the currency  Roll Eyes

oh the retards.

really, im out.


No you moron. It rocks because it goes up and down but remains steady over the long term. Didn't your macro economics book teach you that?
57  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Federal Reserve wont let Germany see all its gold...lolol on: August 15, 2013, 10:20:02 PM
So you are going to tell the dudes that bought gold last year and are losing FOURTY FUCKING PERCENT of their savings to not worry because gold is "safe" and 12 months is too short of a sample? roflcopter

no matter what bs excuse you throw at it, there is no way something that can make you lose 40% in a year can be considered a safe bet. no fucking way.

It is the equivalent of you holding dolares for 12 months and the inflation rate shots up to 40% year. It is just crazy and it *never* happened during the whole history of the american currency. Never.

Holding dolars is much more safe than holding gold, period.

And you retards cant even grasp a very simple mathematical concept called historical volality. What a shame.


The reason you saw that much short term volatility in gold is due to your beloved fiat currency you fucking imbecile.
58  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Federal Reserve wont let Germany see all its gold...lolol on: August 15, 2013, 10:14:52 PM
haha its funny because galeniko knows his shit about a very broad range of different topics. There is something suspect about his background, or he maybe he is just smart.

There are plenty of reasons that fiat currency is superior to gold. One of them is that monetary supply must grow at the same pace of GDP. If monetary supply is stuck we would have DEFLATION. And deflation is 10x worse than inflation if you dont know. Since we cant controll well the supply of gold it is totally harmfull to a healthy growth of economies.


Are you even remotely serious with this?

59  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Federal Reserve wont let Germany see all its gold...lolol on: August 15, 2013, 09:55:42 PM
rofl, so let me show you a gold chart for the first time in your life.

As you can see, if you bought gold exactly 1 year ago you would be losing around 40% of your capital. Basically 3+ DECADES worth of inflation right in your culo in just 12 months. Great "value reserve" commodity...  Roll Eyes

Numbers dont lie, gold is one of the most volatile shits you could ever trade. And you dont know jack.

Wow 12 whole months, what a sample! Why don't you take the last couple hundred years and see how much steel, wheat, coal etc., and ounce of gold bought you. Then compare that to dollars. Your understanding of the financial system is the same of a 10 year old getting a weekly allowance.
60  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Federal Reserve wont let Germany see all its gold...lolol on: August 15, 2013, 09:48:05 PM
you realize that without fiat money we would be stuck kinda far back in time?esp the usa wouldnt exist as it does today.

are you saying there were no financial meltdowns before fiat currencys? Grin





You are correct, the USA would not exist as it is today without fiat currency, it would be better off. By the way fiat currency and fractional reserve banking go back a thousand years, but it has been taken to whole new level in the last century. Financial booms and busts happen due to expansion and contraction of the money supply and believe me there is a great amount of wealth to be accumulated in either scenario.

61  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / Re: Federal Reserve wont let Germany see all its gold...lolol on: August 15, 2013, 07:09:39 PM
Over thousands of years gold has proven to hold it's value versus the price of commodities. It is the most convenient and stable medium of barter that the world has ever seen. Financial meltdowns are created by fiat currency.

Good post...how are you? not seen you much on here in the last while...or have i just missed you? Grin I have also thought about doing a Basic full Body workout for a Change... after stiff deads the other day my lower back was still tired yesterday...i looked like an old man when i bent over...LOL still ya gotta do it... Wink

I am doing good, missed you guys  Smiley. I have been working on solving my shoulder dilemma that I started having in the fall of last year. Going back to the 3 days a week full body workouts, focusing on direct rear delt/upper back work, and doing shoulder mobility work has been a great combination.

64  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: What do you do to reduce/lessen DOMS.... on: July 11, 2013, 10:46:17 PM
I used to HATE the DOMS after lower body sessions. At the beginning of last year I started experimenting with 3 days a week full body type routines. The DOMS went away. At first, lower body was still sore for about two days but nothing like the 3-4 day soreness that I used to get which made walking up the stairs and kneeling down a challenge. Then as I got more used to it, the soreness lasts one day. By the time you are training again after the one day of rest you are good to go.

Anyone on this forum who  has successfully taken Galeniko's or Noone's advice that they volunteered up for free, spend the $20. If it got you the results you were looking for, $20 is a very small price. If you are curious about the book, read reviews or buy it, don't pirate it. These guys got approval from Ron, they aren't being shady about it soliciting members wIth PM's.

The most valuable thing a parent can give their kids financially is a good education. That coupled with teaching them responsibility and self-reliance will take them anywhere in life they want to go. All the other material bullshit does more harm than good. It's funny seeing the people that I went to school with that got brand new luxury cars for their 16th birthday still living off their parents into their 30's. While the "poor kids" were able to stand on their own within a year of finishing school. Of course there are always exceptions in life, but usually giving in to every whim of a child or teenager just builds a huge "mommy/daddy" security blanket that they hold dear to for as long as they can.
67  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Buying a car need help ! on: June 17, 2013, 05:04:02 PM
How much money do you want to spend on owning the car? Even if you get the Audi Care maintenance plan (which I highly recommend you do if you go the Audi route) it doesn't cover things like brakes and tires (which you will need before you go out of warranty). The RS5 brakes are not cheap, they are considerably more expensive than the A5 and even the S5 brakes. You will pay a fraction of the price for the upkeep of Honda vs the Audi. BUT.....if you are truly a connosieur and can truly afford it, then you go with the RS5. Also not sure where you are from and what exactly you are looking for, in the US you cannot get the RS5 with a manual, the S5 you can though.
68  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Sets on: May 27, 2013, 08:46:52 PM
I think the amount of reps really dictates the amount of sets and vice versa. I have 3 main rep ranges I work in: 8-12, 6-9, and 4-6.
3x8-12 (24-36) total reps
4x6-9 (24-36) total reps
6x4-6 (24-36) total reps

With big compound movements I will pyramid up in weight to one heavy set. With isolation movements I keep the weight the same for all sets.

I was wrong to question you experience with the car's, given the proof you have shown. I do apologize. Hope you accept this in good faith. If a man is wrong, than he is wrong..as I was.

So much is BS, on the internet, I tend to doubt other peoples claims to what they have done or who they are. So much role playing and the expanding of the ego. And the more they post, on line, the more they expose themselves to their lack of experience and knowledge.

On another point:

Never said I trained any Pro. Have had training conversations with some, at gyms and other placers. Have also watched them, and other top men, train. Gyms north, from Ventura, Orange county to San Diego county. First impression of most of them; it's drugs and the cycle phase they know the most about. The actual training, or exercise science, not much information there. If anyone thinks that Pro's are different in knowledge, ethics or any thing else...the surprise is on you. Most anyone who "trains" a Pro also has a good supply connection and advanced chemical knowledge.

                                       Good Luck

Good Luck

I can appreciate someone who is able to admit when they are wrong and apologize. I have been wrong many times and have done the same thing.

In my first post in this thread I wasn't trying to argue about the nervous system's fight or flight mechanism we all know it exists.
I was simply trying to create a discussion about how dramatic it is. While lifting up an end of a car several inches is a lot for an elderely grandma it's certaintly not beyond my realm of plausibility, but if we are talking about picking it up a foot of the ground that's in a whole different league.

For example if I was standing in a room and all of a sudden noticed a poisonous snake on the floor I can see someone jump onto a 4 foot table if their life depended on it even if the person hasn't jumped that high ever in their life. Those of us that train know that a 4 foot box jump is certaintly believable and completely plausible. But to the average person it might seem like a miracle. Now if this was 6 foot refrigirator that the person jumped on top of that's a whole different story.

I'm a sporting guy..... Smiley

I like to lift heavy shit and I also like to work on cars/trucks/bikes....so I was wondering...how do you lift a $120,000 car onto a floor jack or lift rack by hand without grabbing that expensive bumper? Surely you're not picking up a $120,000 car by the wheelwell?

Quickest and easiest way is by the fender. Like I tried to explain to our Mr. Know-it-all, it doesn't require very much force.

Also your hands don't damage the paint like a metal jack would which make it a much better option.

Another option is a go-jack, which fits around the tire without damaging the wheel, this is a very good option for cars with air suspension that has a leak or a malfunction since there is much less play in the suspension than you would have with a conventional coil spring set up.
73  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: WTF? Do you beleive this guy? Just another liar? on: March 29, 2013, 08:52:02 PM
Here we go again..way off subject:

I'm not rich, so not familiar with luxury cars. A bumper jack can be adapted to most any style/body of a car. Don't let the name bumper fool you. It can be a all around jack. I am more familiar with trucks, not the mechanical expert role playing game.

Seeing as how you gave you work resume:  Guessing you wash luxury cars, at a dealership...no doubt. The nearest you have come to actually working on one. Unless you consider a Yugo a luxury car, that's on blocks in your front yard.  Jack that baby up...did you?

My career is not training the elderly. I do it as a favor, and on a few occasion. This is a free form, so don't care for my suggestions, than don't read them...simple. I'm sure you never followed any suggestions I have made in the past, being the  cool guy that you are. You have you training ideas and I have mine.Why you getting way bent out of shape is a puzzle. As I am so ignorant, and you the superior, I leave this circular and pointless waste of space.

                                                               GOOD LUCK with the YUGO!

What's there to know. it's on the news, now and than, about normal people doing outstanding feats in times of emergency's, a few up there in age.  Not making this up.

Support stands/jacks must be part of your workout equipment, for all the times you have lifted the end of a car up. What's that, 6X10 reps, on days that end in the letter "Y"?  Even hear of a floor jack, I wonder, with all the many cars you lift up.  All the tires flat so a jack  can't be rolled under? How about a bumper jack (3-4ft), use  them quite a bit going off road.  Or even a Porta Power (look that one up, as the mechanic you seem to be), use that off road also.. And you have seen countless people do this car lifting thing too..impressive.

Seem a bit bitter, things not going you way I wonder. Are you under a 24 hour watch or something? Because your talking like someone under the influence and not quite stable.

And may I offer a extra great big GOOD LUCK to you and yours.

Wow you are beyond ignorant. A bumper jack? I work on luxury cars, do you know what that would do to a $120,000 car? Another bit of info for my car expert friend, in the last 10 or so years very few cars have actual bumpers, they are plastic covers and the actual bar that absorbs the hit is behind that cover.

As an expert like you might know, when a car is lowered it is sometimes necessary to lift it up several inches to get an arm of a lift underneath it, it's very quick and easy to do.

Ask any one who has ever worked on cars for a living and they will tell you that they have had to lift up a part of a car to get a jack underneath it at least once.

Bitter? That sounds like something you might be going through yourself and trying to project it onto others. Hey a career of training the elderely part time while giving useless advice on the internet is not so bad. Sure most people may consider suicide if they had to face a reality like this everyday, but you might just be ignorant and simple enough to hang on.
