Re: Whilst having sciatica at the moment...

@Harry Hayfield: Take full body pictures, now, and don't post them until, five years hence, you can use them as the "before" photos, once you achieve your physical development goals. At that point, everyone will congratulate you for your success!

Re: The problem with MUSCLE CONTROL

@billypopowski: The best way of stopping your mind from wandering, while you are exercising, is to focus entirely on what you are doing. Concentrating on what you are doing for exercise, will also give you excellent mind/muscle connections.

Re: Energy and Maxalding/Sandow

@pm24: Let me get right to your question: Do Maxalding and Sandow's 5lb. dumbbell routines work? Yes they do! You've been reading the fine information on this excellent website, for at least one year, so you said. Did you try doing it? I suspect No, you did not. Had you done the work , then you woul...

Re: The problem with MUSCLE CONTROL

@Giles: Welcome to HOPC. Reps and sets, aren't important with Muscle Control. What matters is doing the form correctly. Once you have the form down completely, then 20 reps will do fine, for both strength and hypertrophy. You go from extreme relaxation of the muscles, to extreme contraction of the m...

Re: Blood Flow Restriction Training

Blood Flow Restriction is dangerous, and can lead to strokes and arterial damage. On reading the whole link that Diane posted, the first "clue" was the KAATSU kit for ONLY $899!!! Yeah Right! You can always spot a hyped fad scam, by the high priced gizmos that go with the ripoff. And to disagree wit...

Re: Blood Flow Restriction Training

It appears to be a completely bogus system. Total hype, to create a fad. It is not what I recommend, nor what I do.

However, I shall do some research on the matter, and get back to the forum, to report on what I can find.

I wish all of you a Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous New Year!

I'll be raising a glass tonight, to honor the memory of our late friend, Chris "Sticks" Bostick, who we unfortunately lost this year.

@Tom K: You say that there is an MMA fighter that is going around China, beating the crap out of traditional martial artists? You say he is being censored? By Whom? And, who is he anyway?

Re: Bruce Lee

@Peter: Yes the vacuum pose does have Hindi names now, however did it exist before Maxick? Most of what are called yoga positions, poses, and movements today, really didn't exist even a hundred years ago. Yoga has been evolving for thousands of years. For instance the Sun Salutation, or Surya Namask...

Re: Bruce Lee

@Peter: I do not believe Monte Saldo was influenced by anyone after Maxick. Saldo was a student of Sandow, and when he discovered Maxick, he brought Maxick to see Sandow. Maxick did is muscle control routine for Sandow, and Sandow said that Maxick was the best example of someone with the best natura...
