Beretta 391 is a brilliant gun as well. I won 3 of them at various national Sporting Clays competitions in the US as a kid. I love semi-autos.

You must know your shotguns if you competed. I will check the Beretta out.

I think this is a good method for us older Trainers. I used this before to spur a muscle Group into new growth. The Volume is low in most workouts and would maybe appeal to guys like Oldtimer because itīs easier on the Joints than Heavy Duty workouts.. while keeping Training time down.

I am familiar with Steve Holman's thoughts on lifting. He was a HIT guy and a low set guy forever as reflected in his magazine articles and books.  Now he has changed into a volume guy and said he believes this the right way to train.  He believes in general the use of 4 sets of 10 with short rests in between sets with only the last set closing in on failure. He changed his position from HIT to volume talking to guys like David Young who told him his observations from working out with some of the biggest stars of the classic period of Gold's gym. Young told him about such stars as Danny Padilla who experimented with Heavy Duty but got better results with 5 sets of 12 reps in general with moderate weights.

The Remington 870 is a legendary shotgun. If you get the Wingmaster version. The wood and the metal look 1st rate. The economical Express 870 while using cheaper wood and the mental doesn't have a great finish operationally it works perfect. There are so many out there that any option you can think of is easily available. With hard cast Brenneke slugs you could hunt any big game in America within 125 yards or so with a 870 with a smooth bore. Those slugs also have been used in Africa.

 The 870 was the standard police shotgun forever but now it seems many top shelf Police departments are going to the Benelli auto. The action takes a lot of the sting out of shooting heavy loads out of it. It's relatively easy to get good groupings with standard slugs with it's smooth bore with it's rifle sights. The smooth bore allows you to switch between buckshot and slugs.  It also never has jammed on me.

When is the fight? I give Canelo all the credit for not ducking anyone. I predict Lara is going to win this fight. He is a top shelf fighter and no one wants to fight him. I am really surprised that Canelo let this fight be made.

Trained legs today. No cardio. I must have done something to my neck and trap training chest and biceps yesterday. Feeling pain. My wife works in the office of a chiropractor. I haven't been to one in decades. I told the doc my trap and neck are giving me pain. He sends in this 110lb woman massage therapist in to massage the area. It was a deep tissue massage. Sadly no happy ending. LOL. After the massage he came back and gave my neck a couple twists and I swear I feel better.

Yesterday after I finished my chest and bicep workout I did an interval workout on the treadmill. After warm up I did 8 x 400 meters with a 200 meter fast walk rest interval in between sets. It felt great. I haven't been able to do speed work for a long time due to injuries and almost every 400 meter set I increased the speed. The last lap was in 6:59 mile pace. I know that's nothing special but just being able to do that is a victory for me. Every interval day I hope to keep bringing down my times. Tomorrow I will do a 5 miler but now that intervals are back in my arsenal I feel my times are going to drop quickly when I race a charity 5k road race.
56  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Who has the greatest muscle builder genes, NFL or the Mr O? on: July 11, 2014, 11:15:45 AM
The only bodybuilder who played in the NFL that I know of was Mike Katz for the NY Jets. He was injured I believe the year before the Super Bowl win. 

Lou Ferrigno and the power lifter Bill Kazmaier both tried to play pro but couldn't cut it. There is rumors about someone being interested in Casey Viator but I don't believe it.

I was by the NY Giants when they were training on their practice field. The are monsters. Bigger than any pro bodybuilder that I have ever seen. They were explosive and incredibly fast. Bodybuilders are bloated drug muscles and should never be confused with these elite athletes.

57  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: just did my first burpee/pullup reps on: July 10, 2014, 01:20:27 PM
Burpee can be really tough if you do a push up with a the rep and jump for height when you get up. I see a lot of people doing the exercise in the easiest way they can figure out how to do it.
58  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Death toll rises to 16 in Chicago's bloody 4th of July weekend; 82 shot on: July 10, 2014, 01:17:48 PM
So the mayor wants tougher gun laws when he already has some of the toughest gun laws in America. He was already caught manipulating stats to show lower crime in Chicago but he can't play with these crazy shooting statistics. He wants better policing but he will be the first to handcuff the police in the name of liberalism.

 In NY city the cops would stop and frisk groups of guys hanging out at 3AM.  It reduced crime because thugs knew they couldn't get away with carrying a gun. In the name of civil rights the new mayor got rid of stop and frisk for the most part and violence stats went up. In some neighborhoods drastically.

That's fantastic news. Seriously is, but who is going to pay your mortgage and bills while you do this? Medical school is more than a full time job.

61  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: one of the finest rock songs... on: July 10, 2014, 07:13:27 AM
I lived through the 60's, 70's and 80's.  Where are the current new rock bands? They don't exist anymore.  It's just sad. Music that started with a garage band can't make it anymore with pop auto tune and computer generated music. So much of the pop music today is disposable. Where are he rock bands with 20 something year old members who can sell out a stadium?

 I appreciate groups of the past still rocking but where is the new music from up and coming rock musicians? It's gotten to the point where a 20 something will hear an actual live band and say they stink because they don't have a clue what live real music sounds like. The would prefer a band pretending to play to tracks.
62  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: JAY CUTLERS EX WIFE LOOKING HOT on: July 10, 2014, 06:36:37 AM
I recall him being in real estate as far back as '97... so he was making money and not just eating, sleeping and training.

and she left him.. right? like she didn't know what she was getting into 20+ yrs ago.

BTW.. yea, I'm 12..

and it goes both ways... you think he didn't stick by her when she was going to school?

... and how many guys do what Jay's done when they're suddenly single after 20yrs? hairstyles that they should've outgrown, cars they probably don't need (fuck the ghost, should've stuck with the S550 and leased the Rover).... and he's been with this girl for a while.. and you think just because she's young and Mexican, that' she's a whore and gonna drain his account? you think after 20+yrs of being with the same woman, a financially secure woman, not to mention himself being financially secure and educated, that he's NOT gonna notice when a girl is gonna try to bleed him dry?

Are YOU 12?

You really think Jay is financially secure? I think his money flow is just about done. He went from earning money in videos, supplement contracts, appearances to just about nothing now. I seriously wonder if he is making 60K right now and by judging from his life style leaves him in negative money.

64  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Best Jobs for bodybuilding on: July 09, 2014, 09:55:08 AM
Construction worker is the worse job for a bodybuilder. A union laborer can have to do mandatory 16 hour shifts many times. Also between all the carrying, shoveling, and moving stuff it's exhausting work.  There is no way you're going to the gym after working on a bridge  for 14 hours.

Physical therapist is a great idea. Acceptance into a school demands high academics and SAT. That is something most bodybuilders are lacking.  Grin In NJ many are making over 100K. I know in rural states it's less but then so is the cost of living.

Many competing bodybuilders in the 70's that I knew from the gyms were steroid dealers. It's a felony and that could land you in prison now for years. Many of the pro's in the past didn't have jobs but were connected the paying gay crowd. Some even made enough money to buy gyms. Not that there's anything wrong with that. (Seinfeld)

Get yourself a part time Job in the gym .. i remember a while back you wanted to get a Trainer licence...or certification. i also remember you saying you learned Anatomy too in College ? Go for it..Training all the chicks  Grin

I think the majority of personal trainers are just used to confront new people who walk into a gym to sign on for a membership. I don't think there is much personal training going on from what I have seen in the chain gyms. One gym by me makes it mandatory that you have a free session with a personal trainer who tells you for 45 minutes why you can't do it without him. He pushed my daughter so hard she thought she ripped a bicep tendon but it was only strained. When she didn't sign on his whole demeanor changed and he had nothing to say to her. What a jerk.

I faded in the intense heat today. Ran so slow today. Near the end of my run my wife's friend was going on the board walk. Nice mature milf in a bikini.  Tongue 

Sitting here typing drinking rum on ice. I feel really good now. Tomorrow is a kayak day in the bay. Hopefully it isn't to choppy.  Yes, tomorrow no running or lifting, yes! If anyone is wondering why I have all this free time I am retired. Currently looking for job and not a career just to have a job to report to.  I have been thinking about posting a picture of myself. Not a physique shot but knowing this board I know it will be photo shopped with some porn thing.  I just wonder what everyone looks like and I assume you do too.
67  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: JAY CUTLERS EX WIFE LOOKING HOT on: July 08, 2014, 06:09:32 PM
She is a real lady, good education, kept her mouth shut while her husband lied his ass off and never turned bimbo/sponge despite his lifestyle. That, more than looks, is wife material. Doesn't translate over the internet, only a real man appreciates such qualities.

Wow, a well thought out post on getbig. Just shocking.
68  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Enough with the Basilie blue stars nonsense... on: July 08, 2014, 06:07:33 PM
He has been a gym owner. He has designed some impressive equipment. The guy has competed which is more than majority of posters here. He personally has been around many legends of the game. He has some definite credentials to give his opinions.

I agree you can't insult the owner of the board and ask for favors. Really though, who the hell cares about blue stars by your name? It's a bodybuilding board in a sub culture of a sport that isn't even recognized as a sport globally. Post here and have a little fun with your spare time. Maybe see a thick ass chick that Bradistan puts up and enjoy your day.
69  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Random pics on: July 08, 2014, 05:39:25 PM
As much as I appreciate Bradistani, I think a little visit to timeout is in order next time he posts that shit.

How dare you. Bradistani posts the best pictures on this site. From his old time pictures to thick chicks and the rest. Okay I admit that one you talk about is a little much but he is an artist. Leave him alone to create art. I like big butts and I cannot lie. You other brothers can't deny.

I was just on her page. She has a lot better pictures than that. She isn't as bad as some of you have written. She probably making 6 figure salary as a nurse with advanced degrees and I wonder if Cutler is going broke now.

This is a lunatic asylum. I guess that's insulting to people with mental illness that shouldn't be put into the same category.  OMR has always seemed more than fair as a moderator and his posts always reflect an intelligent man. No, I'm not kissing his ass. As far as Ron he posts so infrequently that I don't even know where he stands on anything. I don't know how you can say anything negative about him. I'll say this about him, he lets this place be the wild west of bodybuilding boards. When I hear someone got banned I can't imagine what they did? Did they kick a puppy? Did they take away grandma's vibrator?
72  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Training Q&A / Re: The Mature thread on: July 08, 2014, 10:28:33 AM
Worked delt and triceps today. Staying with one set to failure for now. Right shoulder just feels destroyed. It makes pop corn noise along with the pain.

Press behind neck 1 x 8 (had to warm up a lot.)
Dumbbell press 1 x 9 (I went all the way down. No upper arm parallel to the floor half presses)
Dumbbell laterals 1 x 14
Single arm d ring pulley lateral 1 x 12
Rear delt laterals 1 x 15
Barbell shrugs 1 x 12

Weighted dips 1 x 9 ( went really deep stretching everything. Used a 25lbs plate. Could have used a lot more if I went shallow.)
Traditional straight bar pushdowns 1 x 15
Rope pushdows 1 x 15
Reverse D ring pulley tricep 1 x 14

weighted crunches feet on a bench 1 x 50
Pulley crunches 1 x 35 ( I sit reverse in a lat pull down machine. Using a V bar I do seated crunches. Very effective movement.)

Just a little rant. Doing laundry waiting for a break before I head to the beach board walk for a run. It's so damn hot out. Never feared heat exhaustion in my younger years but I know I'm playing with fire at my age. Just been hearing a lot about in shape guys I use to work with who are in their 40's, 50's and 60's dropping dead working out lately. I know of 4 in the past 5 years. One played division I basketball and was in his 40's. He went for a run on the board walk and dropped dead. Another went for a run during a lunch break at work and no one could find him. He was found dead on a running trail. Another retired guy became the local high school football coach. He died in the weight room. The last every always talked about what fantastic shape the guy was in. Looked like an Adonis and he had a fatal heart attack. I know exercise has helped more people avoid a heart attack than it has caused.  It's the number one killer of man. If bodybuilders could show off their heart muscle they would train it like crazy instead of walking slow at a zombie pace on a treadmill. Wish me luck in this 90 degree pure sun day here.

My squat racks. Those bumper plates are 55lbs each. When I Olympic lift they are so thick they will bounce if dropped. I have enough bumper plates for the limited Olympic lifts I do. I either power clean or use the old fashion split technique. I never in my life could do a squat snatch.  The split gives me all the athletic attributes of the Olympic lift.
