1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Serious traning advice wanted...just this once. on: May 19, 2012, 01:54:39 PM
Ok, lately I took it (too) easy. Tomorrow I'm gonna hit the gym, 12 weeks until summer beach holyday...

I haven't made up my mind about which program. It'll be...
- FB every 3rd day
- half body every other day
- 4 or 5 or 6 day split once-a-week 

Just seriously this once: what should I do ?

C absolutely

unless you can muster super-human intensity, which requires heavy androgens, in which case C is your only alternative.

NO.  Do not get that.  You will be making a fool of yourself.  You would be mixing Roman/Greek and Egyptian Mythologies. 

Anubis is the Egyptian God of the Underworld.  Cerberus (the dogs) is the Greek Guardian of Hades.  Do you see where this is going? 

Now, instead of using Anubis with the dogs, you could use Hermanubis, who was a Greek combination of Hermes and Anubis.  Anubis later became Osiris by the way.  Use Hermanubis and make him hold the chain of one dog but with three heads (Cerberus).  But, before you do anything like that, study and know your Egyptian and Greek mythology, the tattoo's and symbolism will mean a lot more to you.  You might also find out what they really mean and see if the whole thing even fits you.

But don't use Anubis with Cerberus.  Cerberus being a Greek creation or myth, would conflict with Anubis.  The Greeks thought the Egyptians were primitive and ridiculous because their deities wore animal headdresses.  So putting an Egyptian God with a Greek myth offshoot (the dogs) wouldn't make much since.  It would be like getting a tattoo of Jesus fighting Hades when it should be Satan.  See what I'm saying? 

Now, I know the dogs your posting are not necessarily Cerberus, but those dogs are an offshoot of that, especially with Anubis holding the chains or like your wanting it to be.  Study your mythology closely.

I'm Thoth, the God of Wisdom adorning the Baboon headdress, but I like to think of myself as a Vanilla-Gorilla with some serious wisdom, HAHAHAHAHAHA







My first year of bodybuilding was back when I was 15 and still in high school.  In order to get our drivers license we have to pass physical education.  Its' required by the state.  So this was one of my classes for the first semester or 18 weeks.  The only thing the class involved was running everyday for 40 minutes. 

Well I had to get my drivers license and I had to grow some big ol' chunky thick legs to haul around these massive lats, pecs, arms, delts, etc.  So what was I to do?  I had no choice.  I made it work.  The first two or three weeks were rough.  Even at the young age of 15 I went all out on leg training.  I was taught how to bodybuild at a very young age by a very good up and coming bodybuilder.  The first workout he ever took me through was Leg extensions, Leg Press, Hack Squats, Smith Machine Squats, Leg Curls, stiff leg deadlifts.  This was the first time I EVER trained legs.  Had only been lifting weights period for about 4 weeks.  Every exercise consisted of 4 sets and rep ranges in the 15 to 20's.  I couldn't quit or give up or take it easy because I knew what he (my bodybuilding trainer) was doing.  He was testing me.  I was the youngest guy in a gym full of seasoned and competitive bodybuilders.  I knew I could learn a lot.  I knew If I completed this I'd be one of them.  When he took me through this workout several of the other bodybuilders were standing around watching and laughing.  But I never gave up.  After that I earned their respect and that was all that mattered to me.  A 15 yr old in the company of 21-45 year old bodybuilders who decided to take me under their wing.

So even though I had to run everyday for school, it was state required, I was going to let my new "family" down either.  I forced myself to run everyday with severely sore legs.  Once my body started getting used to weights the running got a lot easier.  I just got use to it.  After a while it was nothing.

Honestly though, nothing is better for leg development then some hardcore strength training to build up those white fibers, then some running to activate those red fibers.  You should have some phenomenal looking legs after a couple months or so.  The only thing I'd try to be careful of is making sure you plan both types of training out to where one doesn't hinder the other.  Recuperation is up to you.  The more your body gets accustomed to this type of trauma the faster you'll recuperate week from week.  So I wouldn't be to concerned about one or the other effecting the others gains.  Just make sure they're not performed so close together that they hamper each other's training though.  See what I'm saying? 

Good luck with everything. 






When I first began bodybuilding and leg training my legs and glutes would both be sore the next day.  The leg press I used in the begining was the Cybex leg press, the same one in Dorian's Blood and Guts movie.  Still to this day I have not found a better leg press.  Anyway, when I use to use that one I knew back then that if your feet were placed higher up on the platform your hamstrings and glutes were hit and if your feet were placed lower your quads were hit.  I always kept my feet were my heels were lined up with the black traction material thingy, at the very bottom.  In other words I know my feet placement was good.  But every time I'd have a leg workout my legs would be fried the next day, the second day even worse.  Loved it.

Now of course the gym I train at doesn't have this leg press.  They have one of the more modern ones, not sure who it's made by.  But it's not just this leg press.  It's the leg press at other gyms in my area as well.  Every time I complete a leg workout the next day my quads are never sore, only my glutes.  And believe me, it's not my feet placement.  I never go to high with them.  I usually always keep my feet spread apart about shoulder width or just inside shoulder width.  I do this for all leg training, well except for hacks, ever so often I'll move my feet in a little closer for those.

I know I said "Leg Press", but it's really not just the leg press that's causing this.  I usually always start off with a few sets of extensions, then do about 4 to 6 sets of leg press.  Then I'll do hack squats.  I guess I say leg press because it's the bread and butter of my workouts.  At times I'll start off with leg presses then hacks, then finish off with extensions.  But no matter what I do, the next day, it's always glutes that are sore, never my quads like they use to be.

So, I'm almost 100% positive it's not my feet placement, at least not on leg presses.  So that leaves two, maybe three other things.  This is what I wanted to get your opinion on.  We'll go ahead and say 3 things just to make it look official.  Okay, so lets look at what 3 things it could be:

1.  Shoes.  I always push through my heels on all leg workouts.  I also always wear Nike Shox or something similar to train in.  You know, your basic jacked up-in-the-heels tennis shoe.  Could this be the problem?  I don't think so, I was actually going to leave this one out, but still figured I'd ask.  Seemed like when my quads did get sore back in the day I still wore a similar shoe though.  Thoughts?  Or what's the best tennis shoe or training shoe to wear for training legs?

2.  This one could be a possibility.  Not my feet placement vertically, but horizontally.  In other words, could the width of my feet placement be causing this?  I know that this usually has to do with hiting certain parts of the thigh (close feet=outer quad, wide feet=inner, narrow/insider shoulder width=whole quad, etc).  So surely this couldn't be why, but then again maybe there's something i'm overlooking.  Thoughts?  Is it feet width distance?

3.  Personally, this is what I think it is.  Want to hear your opinion's especially on this one.  Okay, knee placement.  When I place my feet on the platform I do turn my toes out slightly, then I let my knees align with them, possibly even letting them point further outside then they should.  Don't get me wrong, it's not extreme or anything like that, but still this could make a huge difference, even an ALL quad exercises. 

Lets use this as an example.  Lets say your knees are pointed outward to the point where if you were to go all the way down, instead of your knees stopping on your chest or stomach, they would naturally flow out towards your arms or sides.  The other way would be their not pointed out, nor in.  Just to the point were they are pointed straight up to the ceiling and if your were to have your feet spaced shoulder width apart and let your legs go all the way down they would basically touch your chest or delts.  If your feet were closer together then of course your stomach or chest would stop them.  See what i'm saying?

So if the knees are just ever so slightly pointed out, could this be what's bringing the glutes more into play instead of the quads?  Should I focus on keeping my knees more "center" or pointed up to the ceiling and not let them jut out even ever so slightly?  What do you guys think?  Is this the problem?

Now of course if I didn't name something or I'm leaving something out, please feel free to share.  This is driving me crazy and seriously impending my leg development/training.  Any help you guys can offer would truly be a blessing in disguise.  I think it's because of the knee thing, and I think something that little has a greater impact then I ever realized hence the reason I never really paid that much attention to it.  But, like I said, I open for all suggestions or help to get this problem fixed.  Remember, it's not just leg press, it seems to be doing this no matter what I do.

Thanks guys,
Thoth




Since I've admited to my gimmickery, can you guys just forgive me.  You know I love you so much.  Especially you monkeylove, and besides you know how I'm big into apes and monkey frolicking.






Of course I can go out.  My god, do you all really believe the Mighty Thoth doesn't know that? 

But you amatuers seem to forget one thing, going out costs money, and money is NOT to be spent on fucking.  No, I'll let you fools get caught up in that game. 

You see, I have a brain that can seduce any woman on this planet.  Problem is, I just need them to be ready and set in the right environment for it.  They're obviously not going to be when you run across them on their favorite cross knitting forum or on facebook we're they have an image to maintain because that's were they actually know a lot of people at from the real world.  Sure, you can get pussy on Facebook, but they're not always going to be in the mood there.

 When a woman put ups a profile looking for men, she's wanting to be "fucked" discretely.   Who knows why.  Husband maybe.  Boyfriend, that keeps on her on a tight chain.  Can't get out of the house because they have kids.  Who knows and it doesn't really matter.  Why should we let these poor women go another second longer without dick when they are sitting at home, horny, begging to be fucked.  Dating sites is their medium.  And of course your going to see the place littered with shit.  But if you weed through the shit, you can find a diamond.  You just have to put in a little bit of work.  But I promise you, there's quite a few fuckable chicks hanging on those sites.

If you really believe only "fat guys" or "losers" play these dating sites, well...just keep thinking that.  Because your seriously missing out.  And look at the money you save.  All these chicks want to do is want a break in their bored lives.  They create a profile, want you to talk to them all day, prove to them your worthy, then before the nights over with, your meeting them at their house.  I'm serious, it's really that easy.  Most of them are doing this while their husbands or boyfriends are away.  Or because their bored at the office and want someone to fuck them while they go to lunch.  This is what these dating sites are.

I'll leave all that money spending, going to clubs to compete with 100's of other douche bags up to you all that think dating sites is for the "ugly" haha.  Whatever.  In the meantime, I'll spend my day at the office or home chatting up some horny females that are ready to fuck.

I will gladly send you the plane ticket and have access to Renzo Gracie's gym for sparring at any time, as I have been a member of his gym for well over 7 years.

I have no black belt in Tae Kwon Do or Karate, but I do have a brown belt under Renzo Gracie and started boxing at the age of 14.

I WILL GLADLY PAY FOR YOUR TICKET, SET YOU UP IN THE RITZ CARLTON AND HAVE RENZO ALLOW FOR US TO FIGHT ALL OUT FOR AS LONG AS YOU WANT IN HIS GYM.

Put your money where your mouth is.  I will gladly contact Ron over the phone and set this up so that they can video tape a faggot like myself getting killed by you in less than a minute.

The same tough guy act was played by Craig Titus over at MuscleMayhem with me back in 2003, he said he would come over to Victor's gym to fight me.  He showed up, I was there and once he saw me in person, he tried to become all buddy-buddy and shit and said that it was internet nonsense.

You said you can kill me in less than a minute, I would pay you to do that..

Come fight me or you are a cowardly piece of shit.

Thanks! Birthday was May 15th, and spent it working for 10 hours, like I usually do Monday through Friday. But last weekend, spent one day getting some cool presents, and the other day taking care of Mother's day.

So what did I get for my birthday!   1. Target Gift Cards from family.   2) The Clone Wars Season Two (so I can watch them with my son, who loves Star Wars).  3.  Three more Skylanders for our family (which brings the total that we own to 34 of them).  

Other than my family's love and handwritten cards, I really did not want anything else.  I alraedy got a new car, computers, cameras.  And oh yeah... we already booked a week cruise in a mini-suite to Alaska, along with a helicopter rider to the glaciers and dog sledding!





!!!!!!

Saved the best for last I see!

Only a man with class and style would have a trip like THAT penned on the calendar

"SO YA DAWG, I PLAN TO HAM IT OUT WITH THE FAM U KNOW, GRAB SOME PIZZA, AND SOME KIDS ARE GOING TO HUG ME AND OH SHIT IS THAT-IT IS, MY FUCKING HELICOPTER PILOT SAYS WE'RE LOW ON FUEL DAWG, AND OUR TEAM OF HUSKIES IS GETTING HUNGRY, I HATE TO LET YOU GO BUT GLACIERS DON'T CLIMB THEMSELVES, CATCH YA LATER?

Ron Avidan is and has been, for at least a decade now, the president CEO and HAMMER of bodybuilding, both overtly as well as covertly.

Cheers Ron, and may you enjoy many more, and all the happiness and prosperity thus far times infinite.

To be perfectly honestly even if i knew I could win it, I'd still prefer to stay home.

That's not saying much considering I say nearly the same thing about NFL games (minus the winning).

Some sporting events are just better while in front of the tv, no shame in admitting that.

Flex was a very different bodybuilder when DRY. That seemed to be the biggest thing for him- could he get dry? A dry to the bone flex wheeler NEVER lost. His natural genetic shape was just hard to imagine, hard to see, he had to be bone dry to get the full effect. When he was on, he was top 3 all time easily. Not for size, not for mass, but for the perfect balance of everything all at once, including a flow to his body that no one has ever been able to come close to. One in a billion genetics, as has been said.

19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ron Avidan wins the "Bodybuilding Media" Award! on: December 14, 2011, 06:59:21 PM
Wow - I truly am honored.  Getbig was started as a place for information, discussion, and to meet a lot of interesting people who somehow enjoyed bodybuilding, the industry and wanted to know more about things.  At the time, there was no place to get contest information, contest results, magazine information and simple knowledge about bodybuilding and its history.  Tried to start that, with very little advertising, and still keep many parts, including the boards, advertisement free.  

Over the years, I have met a lot of people from the boards, from all over the world, and some of my very good friends too.  Getbig keeps me entertained, happy, sometimes riles me up, but in the end, I still like to come back and work on it, check out the latest happenings and see what is up.

Most important, without various personalities who come here and post,  it wouldnt be Getbig. Without many of you, some new, some very old from years past, there wouldnt be a place to visit.  And it wouldnt have let me take pictures, write articles, and meet some of you who are in the supplement industry or not.  I thank you all.

I have learned that in order to have balance in life, family, friends, work, play and getbig are all important.  With every negative there are usually a lot more positives.  

Thank you Dan for the award, it is very much appreciated.   As I like to, I stay behind the scenes when I can, but I am also a big fan of bodybuilding (and always bikini and figure).  As it should be.




SO FUNNY that you mention the fact that at the time Getbig was started, it was the only place to get up to date contest info. I found getbig hunting around the internet trying to find out if Ronnie had won the 98 Olympia. I remember the morning results were posted, pacing around the office waiting for my computer to boot up and when I saw he had one I lamely brofisted the entire office. That is definitely a morning I will never forget!!!

Also yes I believe it was americanbodybuilding.com at the time, and not getbig, though I could be wrong.

Much thanks for what you do here Ron, it is appreciated by MANY. Sometimes the voices of the few drown us out, but largely we are all very appreciative.

20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Steriod overdose!! on: December 12, 2011, 09:07:23 PM
so he shot 4grams of test a day? I pondered getting a hundred grams and doing 5-10grams week just for shits and giggles

He was/is an idiot. Straight from texas, good ol boy, bout 6ft4 tall and somewhat lanky.

Once took x every day for almost 6 months "cuz I liked the feelin" was literally his answer. Just out and out stupid. He just wasn't able to put together cause and consequence.

Anyway, he survived just fine, didn't drop dead, and thats a dosage you would never even consider.

Also numerous plifters are for sure pumping grams of suspension and my Lord, 400mgs drol if not more. You'd think they would have dropped dead at any minute, but they are still alive and kicking so...
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Steriod overdose!! on: December 12, 2011, 06:59:11 PM
With steroids more you take more side effects you encounter plain and simple. Also you will see
your body become more and more efficient at ridding the excess. TRUST me, there are
guys out there who have mega mega mega dosed. I knew personally a guy who shot
a FULL BOTTLE of t-400 every day for almost two weeks before ending up in the hospital
with a very bad fever. Now, this guy wasn't the brightest, not a bodybuilder. His reasoning
was that "well, when I shot it, I thought it felt pretty good, and then i got impatient, so i
shot a little bit more. Then I got more impatient, I knew it should be doin somethin, so
I shot some more- then it turned out to be the whole bottle!" He had some cheap connect.
Anyway, he got sick and even still put on a solid 10-12 lbs. This stuff isn't really going to hurt you,
it's nothing I would worry about. High BP, yeah that's a problem, but otherwise, you will be fine.
Hepatoxicity is vastly overrated with 17aa's. You have to REALLY PUSH IT to mess yourself up.

Haha I am and was a huge Clairmonte fan. I get to stir the pot too! FWIW I still have an old Flex where he went into biceps training (was his best bodypart) and it was standing alternate curls, incline db curls and ez bar preachers. Not groundbreaking per se, but did the job (for him). Ah the good ol days. Now everyone wants to shoot esiclene and synthol and do cable everythings to get big. Where have the good days gone eh?
