26  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Australian ad featuring bodybuilder Phill Pace on: May 08, 2012, 10:01:19 AM
I’m not sure if this has already been posted but the ending is hilarious.

What goes in must come out.  Here's a truly different way to advertise toilet cleaner, from Droga5 Sydney. A short film profiles a bodybuilder, who due to his profession, eats a rather large amount. The story is told by his significant other, who ensures that the entire house, including the toilet, are kept ship-shape.

Sorry to hear about this. I have pictures of my black lab from when I was growing up right here on my desk.

But... what was that crap about drowning kittens? Tell me that wasn't true?!

I guess that's what I'm asking, the friendships forged in the gym became bigger than just workout buddies. The good old days.

Very true Chaos. When I trained at Gold's Venice, Monday nights at Dinah's all you can eat chicken (Culver City) was like bodybuilding old home day... Roger Callard, Dave Dupree, Samir, Larry Jackson... there was a wait to get in and bodybuilders were all over the place even though it was fried chicken... who cared... it was cheap and it was protein, same with Swedish Inn Smörgåsbord in Weschester, CA. When I trained at Ray Mentzers Muscle Mill... Mike/Ray, Benny Podda and 4 or 5 of us would go to a local dinner afterward and have a late dinner while we listened to Mike and Ray's training advice. It was great. That's rare now.    

Wes... possibly Jacques Neuville on the far right (their left) in a print shirt. Leon Brown in the center in front of Franco. Yes that may be Dale Adrian but hard to tell. I think the guy in the center in front of Arnold was a Mr. Europe or Mr. Belgium but I don’t remember his name… maybe Serge Jacobs? I’m just not sure.

Great photo’s in this thread.

Wesley? Maxwell? Either care to answer the question?

I don't know about being friends before we trained together. Most of us became friends while we trained. You know pushing each other you form friendships. I don't even understand what these people do today.

Hazbin... Jeez put me to shame my friend. I don't know why you say you were afraid because any of the guys would have loved to train with you and guide you... many of them would have taken advice from you.

Tim... c'mon man those are the obvious ones. I'll ad Dan Howard (I think) in the back row between Waller and Arnold.  
32  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Bob Chick and cancer on: March 24, 2012, 02:08:22 PM
it's been brought to my attention that there was a thread about me having colon cancer...not true.

While I don't share most of my private life for obvious reasons, I appreciate the concern from people in my well being

As most of you know, my father recently passed away ( Dec 26) from advanced prostate cancer...he was diagnosed  about 13 years ago

One year ago, I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of prostate cancer, and the Gleason score indicated it was pretty aggressive...just like my fathers.

My father elected to go the radiation route, as it was the newest treatment back then...obviously, it didn't work

My choice was fairly obvious, prostate removal, with the newest technology...divinci robot assisted radical prostatectomy...which I did.

Surgery was successful, I'm cancer free ( for now)....and a series of follow up PSA's will let us know if I remain cancer free...

I thank God I was able to heal quickly in order to help my father and family through  what would be, his last 6 months with us...

First PSA resulted in an undetectable score ( best case scenario)....I'm due for another one now....

All good boys....

Good news Bob!

This is why you should know the law, the cops were like; "well.... ehm.... uhm........"

Butter smooth outing, look how the cops just wanted to use excessive violence and spray mace on his face all day but they couldn't do shit, the power of intellect  Cool


<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

The clip probably came in after he identified himself a Sovereign citizen. His statements of “I am not a 14th amendment corporate person” and “I do not consent to your private corporate law” indicate this. The cops clearly did not want to touch him or engage him as he is correct that he would own them if they did. In court a judge would tell him “The court does not wish to enter into a contract with you” which basically means “I as a judge do not want you to sue me for everything I own because I know you will win”.

I am not paying any more god damn taxes, not abiding by the law, and gonna follow this cult.

I am not a U.S citizen. I am a sovereign citizen


A friend of mine did that and was trying to get me to do it several years ago.

I thought Anthony Weiner was the guy who exposed HIMSELF?
38  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: serious thread about dick size on: February 28, 2012, 06:38:31 PM
at what age the dick stop growing ? I'm at 8inch and 19yo and I want to know if it can grab to 9inch some day

On getbig 9 inch dicks are as common as 400 pound benches, black belts in 5 martial arts systems and 185k a year incomes. In other words--90% of getbiggers have achieved 90% of these goals by 22 years old. So there you have your goals set.

I just wish I knew what do do with these pesky 30k a month bonus checks Ron Avidan keeps sending me. They're wrecking havoc on my accountants sleep schedule.

Wes I was able to figure out a set-up to do the high bench rows last night. I forgot how good those really are. The mentally pulling back that you described sounds almost exactly like what I was trying to describe with how I do pulldowns.

40  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Deadlifts are not the best back exercise on: February 24, 2012, 02:30:28 PM
thi is how to work back,,

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Time under tension was about .5 seconds up and .5 seconds down with 1-2 seconds rest between reps. Hey, if it works for him great. I do love T-bars and do use kind of form when I want to pump up my ego... my legs... my hips... my lower back and make believe I'm strong.

Seriously I do believe there is a place for this. Just not all the time or as a staple.  
41  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Deadlifts are not the best back exercise on: February 24, 2012, 01:55:56 PM

I swear by pausing at the contraction for most back movements.  Not for a full 6 seconds, but about 2 seconds. 

I think it’s key.

It’s nice to think that when you don't see that part outside of mirror arrangements + photos

Hey, I’m entitled to my own reality of grandeur. Since I’m not interested in competing (standing on stage in thongs for a panel of “judges”with the eyesight of Mr. Magoo) and I’m only in having a “good physique” for a guy in his late 50’s I’ll take it as reality. Now if I were interested in competing then yes I would have to look with a more discerning eye. 
42  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Deadlifts are not the best back exercise on: February 24, 2012, 12:41:58 PM

Hurt my back years ago doing heavy hacks.................wa s training for several contests and my back was acting up so I threw in lying barbell rows..............lie on a high bench and row.

Takes legs and any heaving out of the exercise.........really a great movement, give them a shot.

That’s Vince Gironda style right there Tim. I almost forgot about that movement. I used to do it all the time when I trained at a gym that had a bench you could adjust on BOTH ends. Now all the gyms have bolted their benches down so you can’t prop them up so the closest you can come to duplicating this movement would be low inclines face down. Good movement but not the same as you are getting.

I guess that's where we differ uberman.  I"m 33 and have been lifting since 13.  I still feel that I am slowly putting on size without super heavy weights.  Back is one bodypart that I feel you need control and form with.  Most "hardcore mass builders" for back are performed with lousy technique and a lot of cheating, i.e. bent rows.  Most perform these with horrible form.

Some back movements I like that still add size imo:

1.  Seated ONE arm cable rows--Pause them at peak contraction (where hand is at your side).  I toss these in sometimes second on my list of exercises.  
2.  Seated two arm cable rows
3.  Underhand pulldowns.  Again, strict movement with just a little leaning back during the rep.  Higher rep, around 12-13.  Need to squeeze the back.
4.  DB rows.  Again, paused at peak contraction.  Not too heavy (in able to pause for that brief moment).  

Key number one for building a good back is to feel the back working and filling with blood.  Also getting that stretch during the movement.  

Great post. I’ve been getting back to doing a controlled 1 second positive and 4 second negative on almost every movement in the gym. By controlled I mean I have to initiate the movement with the target muscle. For back that means ZERO lower back swing or leg hitch.

Gironda used to recommend––if you were having trouble with back growth––that you hold the contracted position for 6 seconds. I found this a bit excessive but it definitely seems to increase your muscle/nerve acuity in any muscle where this does not occur for you IF you select and exercise that offers the maximum resistance in the contracted position which most rowing or pulling movements do yet Deadlifts do NOT offer.  

Fortunately for me back has been one of my easy growing body parts. Almost everyone who meets me in person, comments about how wide I am or how wide my shoulders are. However, it’s not my delt development that they’re commenting on but my back width.

One thing that I do a little different than what is mentioned here is how I perform pulldowns with either a close or wide grip overhand or underhand. I always start fully upright and S-L-O-W-L-Y lean back to about a 45% upper body angle––there is ZERO swinging or momentum the way I do this. Therefore the resistance curve mimics what was achieved with a Nautilus Pullover and my elbows go through a wide range of motion in relation to my torso.

For me DL targets mostly hamstring, glutes, spinal erector & traps...lats not as much.
I believe it's still a beneficial excercise for BB, so I wouldn't throw the baby out with the bath water.

For back I could get by with Pull ups/chins BB rows and DL that's really all I do for back anyway...

That's you? Really great back and conditioning. Of course this post gets the Getbig disclaimer... no homo.
44  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: Deadlifts are not the best back exercise on: February 22, 2012, 12:25:35 AM
Maybe 1 out of every 20 people you see working out back at the gym does barbell rows. It's pathetic. I do barbell rows on my heavy, thickness back workout and on my width, separation, mostly machine-oriented back workout. For overall thickness and development, I think both deadlifts and barbell rows are essential. The exclusion of either I think is why so many pros and gym rats have mediocre or downright shitty backs.

I love barbell rows but also love T-Bars.

  99.9999% of conspiracy theories are illogical bullshit. You want a conspiracy theory that is real? Here you have it: a 1960's ad for Ritalin, catecholaminergic, non-amine dopamine re-uptake inhibitor, that turns rebellious kids into obedient robots with no personalities of their own. By blocking the reuptake of dopamine in the pre-frontal cortex, it sustains focus and decreases cerebral "noise" thus making a child hypnotized by whatever is in front of him. Truly scary shit...


100% true... I've been saying it for about 5 years.

Dude is a genuine nice man. The way he speaks of his class act IMO

That's good to hear. Bodybuilding needs that.

the thing is evan actually trains hard. i was kind of impressed. you don't see alot of pro's training legs like this anymore. it seems like training hard went out in the 90's or early 2000's

I think that's the first time I've seen anyone use a full range of motion on leg presses and hacks (lead out clip). Rare to see that these days as well.
48  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dexter Jackson Crushes Quads 3 Weeks Out from the Arnold! on: February 19, 2012, 11:44:34 PM
what is the sartorius?
49  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dexter Jackson Crushes Quads 3 Weeks Out from the Arnold! on: February 19, 2012, 12:40:47 PM
Yes, that's true. I train at the Venice Gold's. There must be a reason why they select the front facing hacks over this machine. I've never tried the front facing hacks. Perhaps it's worth a shot for comparison

I've done that front facing hacks on occasion and did them yesterday since it was leg day and we have the discussion going on. It does have a different feel to where it his the quads. I also felt it strongly in the sartorius but that nay have been because of the stance. I think it's a good variation. 
50  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dexter Jackson Crushes Quads 3 Weeks Out from the Arnold! on: February 19, 2012, 01:59:38 AM

You and I know training isn't the most important so when you say farah I hope you are being sarcastic.

Dexter said in the clip something about George had him dialed in. I don’t know what George he was talking about so I asked if it was Farah. Notice the difference between asking and making a statement.

I prefer using the front squat machine for such movements

What's the difference between a front squat and doing the hacks facing?

Okay nice if you have that machine. And if you don’t?
