"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Right now I'm tired of set routines so like Brian I sort of do what fancies me at the moment.

I alternate exercises now and then for certain body parts to break the boredom of doing the same thing over and over again.

Things only become monotonous and `boring` when they don't work.

T.

==Scott==
I find that even when things work out perfectly if I do the same thing too often I get bored with it. ha ha..


When was the last time your training ( as that is the topic ) was perfect and your progress was ongoing?

You have posted on here often enough about your lack of gains and how you could change things up.

T.


==Scott==
I never said my training was perfect.In fact my training has been very hap hazard as late as life always seems to get in the way of "perfect " training. I used that music analogy as an example of how doing the same thing can get boring no matter how much you like doing it if you just do the same thing all the time.

Regardless of whether I'm making progress or not my enthusiasm never ceases for working out.In fact I often think I have too much enthusiasm for working out. I can't recall a time I didn't feel like working out and giving it my all, even when I've been sick. Unlike some on here I lift because I love the process, the feel, the enjoyment of the task!

If I make gains that's great and if not I can live with that as well. Like I've said before on here, if my motivation was based on continual strength or visual progress I'd have quit long ago.

Sack your trainer, your results are poor.

T.

I'd say judging from my height verses your lack of, my results in actual muscle gain...are far superior.


`Twiggy` you are what 5` 8" ? .. versus my 5` 6" .... not much of a difference.
My arms 17" ( cold ) yours 15"-15 1/2" ?

Legs ? ... mine are bigger , more defined and of superior shape/proportion than yours even when YOU claim to be in competition shape ( see your pics ) .
In fact Id say I am muscularly more proportionate & bigger overall than you `Twiggy`

You have nothing .... really !

T.




Oh but I have you...

I'm glad you have now accepted and are responding to your call name of `Twiggy` , you know it makes sense ;)

T.


==Scott==
It's nice to see that Andrew hasn't descended to your level by making up stupid names for you like you have him. When you think about it there's a whole host of dumb names that would fit you like a glove if one chose to drop to your level of name calling and derogatory statements.

Actually I'm sure he's a real hit at the prison he works at.I can imagine the names and harassing words he jeers at the inmates when he's on the other side of the jail door. For his family's sake I hope he is well armed.

I never read all these posts... but again, this is a clear example of why I don't frequent these boards and will again leave. NO, I never said every aspect of life. And with even a basic understanding of physics, all things have their limitations (what happens when you can't squat any more and that comes to an end?).

Motivation has more to do than simply lifting progressively heavier weights, but improving function for an activity, decreasing body-fat levels, improving or maintaining muscle mass as one ages, etc.

I don't give a rat's behind if some people on here want to do the same routine for the rest of their lives... it's not for me... and it's not for a lot of my clients who love it when I change their program to new exercises and new methods of doing those exercises. To each his or her own. Now, bicker among yourselves.

I once repeated the same routine over and over again week in week out, with little to show for results in either muscular growth or increased resistance.

I figured at that time of my life, I was doing too much, So I cut back, at one point, working out only, once per week. I thought, mistakenly this would be the solution to my problems.

I realized over time that I had to incorporate diversity into my training. To keep myself motivated, but more importantly produce results.

I suppose, for some people, repeating the same basic routine over and over must work. Otherwise, they wouldn't do it or they are deluded. I also think, however that this is dependent on individual factors.

Hypothetically, its impossible to judge one person against another, so I this is why I see this as much an art as a science. But, for this same reason I dont see why an ABC routine for all will work.

I have been described as having a strong type a personality. Though I may find something monotonous (such as training or eating) my personality and beleif in my goals enables me to keep plugging away.

I have also been able to consistently achieve the goals I set for myself. My training doesn't very much, but it is productive. Most often I enjoy it, sometimes I do not. I do not change it during those times, I work through it and reap the positive benefits of consistency that is the path to achieving my goals. I do not beleive in instinctive training. My first instinct is not to train, LOL. The value I have placed on my goals dictates that I do train. The knowledge and experience that I have has proven to me that consistency is my ally.

===Scott==
Brian, I found it a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day when I saw your return to this site but staying off this board and many others is an intelligent decision! It's become non stop bickering and fussing and name calling with little to be learned.To top that off it's the same old arguments, over and over again. Why do I stay? I guess I'm not as smart as I'd like to think I am but I guess I stay out of my respect for DR. Darden, I still think he's "The Man" and then there's the entertainment that goes with stupid posts!With the departure of several troublesome members lately it has gotten a tad better than it has been in a while so maybe there is hope though??

Scott,
read back and see my post.

Brian,
injuries aside, why should an athlete ever have to stop squatting?

Fine to mix it up for motivation but using Andrew as an example, since he is both an already advanced athlete and under your training, I would venture to say you could put more muscle on him with a lot of milk and basic heavy compounds like squats and push presses.

You are in fantastic shape yourself, let's see you take Andrew to the next level too; he's been getting slapped around the forum and it's time you stepped up to the plate to show what you can do with J-Rep training for an already advanced athlete or go back to basics.

Andrew, here is a motivating story that may help encourage you to pursue this experiment:

Not to long ago the Son of Hercules was on the forum claiming he could build a bigger David - and David went out and put more muscle on himself at an already advanced level. Quite impressive, but the point is he did it with his own training method and the Son of Hercules had to eat his words.

My current best is 185 pounds of lean body mass but I have around 70 pounds of fat so am usually about 255 pounds when I lift. I have to lift consistantly to be at that amount of lean body mass.

And here are my altime best lifts when I was natural at 18 years old. I hadn't been lifting consistantly during my teens so my strength could probably be a lot more if I was able to really get organized.

Bench Press 285Lbs.
Squats 454Lbs.
Deadlift 505Lbs.
Cheating Bicep Curl 185Lbs.
Strict Barbell Rows 123Lbs. can't remember, probably got a lot more. T-bar was over 300 pounds, could have been 400 pounds.
Clean and Jerk 225Lbs.

When I was 275 pounds, I think I was 33% bodyfat, wasn't lifting much at the time: Neck 18" Chest 46" Forearms 14" Hips 50" Calves 18" Shoulders 56" Arms 17" Waist 42" Thighs 28.5"
