A large part of this issue seems to be a lack of communication capabilities. Although I may not agree with everything Bob does, he seems to be doing the best he can in what is essentially herding cats; there's no shows with greater pro attendence than the Arnold and Olympia, and it's not like Bob isn't easy to get a hold of if there are changes you want to see made. Milos does have a point abot the international community, and it's no secret that they are marginalized and have more obstacles ot overcome than American pros. Perhaps a solution would be to establish a pros-only forum on the IFBB website itself, and on top of that have a monthly newsletter sent out to all IFBB pros that would inform them of upcoming meetings. This way they would have a venue for proposing ideas for all to vote on, as well as being able to hash it out among each other without the interference of outsiders. Have anon-disclosure agreement of some kind to keep things from being reposted outside of the site just to be safe. As well, you could then have absentee ballots so that athletes that cannot make the big meetings for one reason or another can cast their voteson issues, just have the vote close say about a week after the official meetings. Milos, Melvin and Bob, you and any other pros could work together to hash out how you'd want this set up, and I think it would address most of the issues at stake here.

The other big part of this seems to be Shawn's involvement, and he has yet to speak on that, but it appears that he was acting like scum. I think it's noteable that Bob has only been defending his actions, not Shawn's in this, so Shawn still has a lot to answer for.

I've made a pitch to Dave Palumbo and Steve Blechman to start a women's digital MD magazine using their Zinio software. If you haven't seen it yet, it's like an actual magazine, just flash based, so it wouldn't be just a website or newsletter. Dave really liked the idea, and there's a support campaign and petition to get this thing off the ground. There are more details on the MD boards here:
http://www.musculardevelopment.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5803
and the petition is here:
http://www.petitiononline.com/FBBMD/petition.html
Please help us make this a reality. I think it should be obvious what a huge boon to the women's side of the sport it would be to have a magazine, even a digital one.
Thank you, and let's make this happen!

looking cool spiko
Out of curiosity, why do you feel the need to follow me around and post old pictures of me? Yes, I was bi at one point in my past. I've never denied that and it doesn't bother me, so I don;'t see why it bothers you. I took a stupid looking picture in my kung fu uniform, ok whatever. And the other pic is more than three years old and I've posted it on these boards before as well as an even older pic and a newer one that show the progress I made. So why do you feel the need to hate on me when I've never done anything to you nor denied any of this?

The first time I saw a pic of him doing a side tri I thought it was morphed. His triceps are unreal! I'd recommend checking out the Dave Draper/ Bill Pearl DVD that came out last year, it's fascinating and a nice breathe of fresh air and positive attitude for bodybuilding.

True their are lots of guys that on volume training look like nothing. Just like on HIT training. Same guys that come in day in day out looking the same. A real bodybuilder will succeed
ed with and training protocol and would be wise to experiment with all varieties.

Here's a different, scientific approach to overtraining.

Volume training is not only a waste of time and effort, but is actually counterproductive. You draw from your energy reserves during training. And it doesn't take 5 minutes after your workout to restore the energy that was used up. It takes days. And It's far more important for your body to restore it's energy reserves than it is to use energy for building new muscle tissue because those energy reserves are necessary for survival, while building a 20 inch arm is not.

Imagine each set performed is like digging a hole into your energy reserves. The more sets performed, the deeper the hole and the longer that hole takes to fill up during rest. The first thing your body must do after the workout is not build a mountain, i.e., the new muscle growth on top, but fill the hole you've made below. That is, it must recover, overcome the deficit, compensate for the exhaustive effects of the workout. And so because it takes several days before that hole is filled up, it takes even longer to start building the mountain.

With that in mind, we're able to see just how and why HIT is as effective as it is. When volume is lowered, and energy reserves are spared, we are able to restore our energy reserves faster and enter the muscle building process sooner. Not only do we enter the muscle process sooner, but we also have a greater amount of energy which can be used to build new muscles.

Then there's the issue of intensity. The relationship of training intensity and duration exist on an inverse ratio. You can either train hard or long, but you can't do both. Honestly, I think people on high volume programs simply can't push themselves to the extent of absolute failure. I really do. If you did that, your body would force you to lower volume. And arguments like this is just for people to falsely reassure themselves that their lack of efforts in the gym is working. HA!

HIT is a workout program that was the result of one man's use of of a specific method of thought. One of logic and reasoning. Mike Mentzer was perhaps the greatest bodybuilder of all time. He dedicated his life to making a science out of bodybuilding. And that he did. It's called HIT. And I strongly suggest it.
While i agree to a degree, I think that it is very individual what kind of exercise works best. I resond well to HIT style workouts for most of my bodyparts, but it was something that I had to learn after training with lots of volume and really figuring out how to get more and more intensity out of a set. As i learned to bring more intensity on individual sets I did less sets per workout as I just could not continue an exercise after a high intensity set. On the other hand, my workout partner responds best to volume. He's a tall guy with long limbs, so it's a lot harder for him to use enough weight with good form to be able to generate the intenisty necessary for a hit style workout. But if he uses a lower weight that allows him good form with higher reps he responds much more. I think that it's a combination of genetics and structural differences. Look at Mentzer compared to say Lou Ferrigno. I don't think that Lou, with his long frame would have been able to respond well on a HIT program. Also, in his later years I think Mentzer's ideas moved out of the realm of what could be applied in reality and were purely theoretical.

check out this site John Matrix.. www.robthoburn.com . This guy has some interesting philosophy for training.


I recently read some of Rob Thoburn's training methodology and have been trying it out at the end of my workouts. Sometimes I do his recommeneded 6 sets with brief rests and descending weights, but I've also just gone for complete burnout just doing rest-pause on my last exercise until I can only get out a couple reps with decent form. If possible I like to use an exercise that puts constant tension on the muscle as i feel I get more out of that long extended set that way, and as an added benefit it tends to hit ancillary and stabilizer muscles better. Again, this is just how it's worked for me. Right now I've been Dorian HIT style training for my larger bodyparts, and adding the high volume set at the end has seemed to get me better results. i do train every bodypart more than once a week though, usually twice every 10 days.

12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: So what do you think of MD now? Heres my 2 cents. on: November 10, 2006, 08:11:12 AM
I like a lot of the info in MD, the articles on new research and new developements in supps and steroids. Also, MD gives coverage to a lot of the guys that you'll never see in Flex and i find that being more familiar with more of the bodybuilders out there, especially the international guys, makes contests a lot more exciting. They totally houldn't have dropped Lee, but I didn't think they did? Ron Harris was just talking about an interview with Lee that's going ot be in the next issue I thought?

HAHAHHAHAHHAAA

nice dodge puss. he was standing 10ft. from you obviously doin nothing(on your clip). why didnt you say the same shit you to him in person as you did on here....tough guy  Roll Eyes


TA infront of a real threat= scared shitless
Was I the only one that noticed TA wasn't wearing one of his patented "True Adonis" screen name shirts at this show? I think the footage of JS would have been quite different if he had seen TA in one of those Grin

And TA, what is with all the "commoners" crap lately? Did you play too much D+D or something? Or do you really want to further promote the image that you come from inbred stock?

You are a joke.  I was the most visible person at that show.  Going up and down, backstage, lobby and having front Row seats.

Johnny was 2 inches away from me at all times and I have video with him....Do you REALLY want to get owned again?


I suggest you shut your mouth from here on out and delete your account.  You and Vince Goodrum are just pathetic,lying, excuses for the cowards that both of you are.

Your physiques are horrible as well.
Hey, where's the clip of you deadlifting 225 for 100 reps? Or how about an explantion for why you were falsifying research and lying about your bodyfat and how much muscle you lost? Or those physics formulas for your 'gravity training"? I mean, before you'd go around telling people to shut their mouths and delete their accounts because they didn't back their shit up, I'd assume you'd have made good on your claims and explained your lies Grin
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Help me Out here--did Adonis,......? on: November 07, 2006, 03:26:19 PM
Yep and Yep.

I have uploaded several videos and have a few interviews including Branch Warren.  Branch Warren even comments on Vince Goodrums poor physique.  Check the long thread out.  You will enjoy.

Also, stay tuned for more Videos and pictures!
Are any of those the video of you deadlifting 225 for 112 reps? Or deadlifting 600? Or deep squatting 520+? Or of the top of your head to prove you're not balding?
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: TA interview threads on: November 06, 2006, 03:44:03 PM
LOL sorry man, I don't know, but, I also don't care enough to check. This maybe fight is more than enough to keep my ADHD brain in check Tongue
What about a video of him deadlifting 600 lbs? Or deep squatting 500+? I mean, since he's posting all these videos, and he had a camera, and someone to operate it, I figured he must have made good on all of the others claims he's been throwing out there right?

P.S. Did he post the formulas for his gravity training anywhere in this thread?
 Grin
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: TA interview threads on: November 06, 2006, 03:38:34 PM
I don't think it exists.
Oh ok. Well he at least took a pic or shot some footage to prove he's not balding right? I mean he said he was going to do that weeks ago, but I understand he gets busy doing. . . ummm I don't know what, but he posted that right?
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: TA interview threads on: November 06, 2006, 03:34:02 PM
Which one's the link to the clip of TA deadlifting 225 for 100 reps?
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: LARRY from GETBIG INTERVIEW:Another Vince Owning! on: November 06, 2006, 09:20:26 AM
TA, I usually think you're a delusional tool, but you did a really good job at the elite. Good job man Smiley

Triple H, you looked awesome. Good luck at your next show!
