Re: Launch of Ray's Training Q & A

Here's a good question for ray: Have you found that your training has changed over the years i.e., reduced volume, less exercises, different exercises, less days training and such?? I found that due to a myriad of old injuries and such that I had to stop doing lots of different compound exrcises and...

Re: Shifting gears a bit...a new training approach

Hi Peter, Yeah, with me and now my wife both working the midnight shifts at our respective jobs, my routine very quickly morphed into an upper body/lower body routine. So, Mon, Wed, and Fri is upper body and a 5 sets of 5 reps concept with bench presses, some sort of heavy back exercise; power snatc...

Shifting gears a bit...a new training approach

So, over the past few months I've been using a very, very simple routine of bench presses and pull ups, the occasional overhead press and curl, plus lots of cardio....running and biking. I decided to shift gears a bit and switch things up a bit and try something different now. The Eastern Bloc routi...

Re: Update on bench press training

The leg extension / leg curl machine caused no problems for me . I did them as slow deliberate movements over a 6-8 rep range , pausing at the top of each movement . I never did the high rep high ballistic rocking back and forth reps I see in practice in a lot of training halls . I think that's wha...

Re: Update on bench press training

John, i admire your courage and tenacity. Just a tip for the bench press, and this is only if you have training buddies or spotters, try to load up in your bench racks a reallly high poundage eg about another 20 or more pounds than your best full lift, then just try to lift the bar,off the racks, d...

Re: Update on bench press training

John Have you ever considered getting a weighted vest and doing squats. The vest distributes the payload (20,40 or 60#) over the entire torso so no ecessive downward pressure on neck & spine . Also hipbelt squats are a nice alternative with payload dangling from the belt . You can rig the hip harne...
