MAG-10 Almost Gone

Not many bottles left. Tick-tock, tick-tock…

Reading TC’s column, I came to a frightening realization - my political views are almost exactly in line with his. I agree with what he said about kids and TV - as parents, we should have more influence over our kids than the media.

All those self-righteous blow hards in Washington need to go out and get themselves some good schnookie-pookie.

Reading the article by Clay Hyght had me thinking, “Wow, cliff note versions of John Berardi Articles”.

Great issue guys

Ian King, man what a leg work out that sounds like fun.
But some one help me out so I can go do this work out on tuesday. What is the rep scheme for this is it just one set for each exercise at what ever level you deam yourself or did I read it wrong?

Well either way I can’t wait my legs are going to be crying for days and I like that.

observation wrapped in pee-your-pants
humor. You are an artist!

Suicide by Squat:
1- if squats are building my quads, what would I use to develop my hamstings and glutes?
2 - Squats or substitute leg press.
Yes, that’s what I do too. leg press and squat are pretty much the same thing: that’s why my 900 lb leg press (4x6) equates to a 320 lb 1RM squat AND why whether I leg press or not, it doesn’t affect my squat strength.
What am I missing here?
do any other Westsiders wonder what Ian is talking about?

I like ians ideas on mantaining body balance and stuff…but leg press…please…

The leg press is for those than can’t squat due to injury. Ian explained this in detail in his injury articles. I’m sure he prefers the squat if the person can squat.
