You’re not rambling, your responding. I appreciate it Doyle.
If Sympathetic wasn’t the right word I apologize, synergistic? I’m not sure.
I didn’t ask about these two different styles because one or both is “trendy”… I asked if any of you have used these methods and to what end. The formula around here seems to be:
- Someone asks something.
- Prof X shows up and says something dismissive.
- Everyone else shows up and says “haha this was great x2”… oh wait, that was just Nate.
I think it’s a fair question. Thib has written about antagonistic pairings (Beast Building).
Don’t just work hard, work smart and hard. I come on here to get smarter. I agree that some people over think, but if I’ve got 15 minutes at work to ask a refining question to try to train smarter, whats the harm?
And for the predictable, “Prof wasn’t being dismissive, what are you talking about” comment:
“even using those terms in that way is to miss the point completely.”
“What I DON’T do is base how I train off of some arbitrary pairing of muscle groups as if this is magic.”
I don’t see where in my post I said anything about magic, and it sure as heck isn’t an “arbitrary pairing”, the whole point of this question was to learn more about pairings and see what has worked for whom. So far in 7 responses only Doyle has managed to actually answer my question.
I thought it was funny…and I gave my own opinion also. Way to douche up my morning.[/quote]
Was this your opinion, “never fall for a new trend man”… because it was actually just a paraphrase of what Prof X said as well. I’m sure if you ask real nice he will let you follow him around and repeat some other things too.

There was another half to that sentence, you sound like you may have an insecurity problem or something, I read your other thread and it seems like you have a hatred for anyone bigger than you or in better shape.
edit: It’s an online forum, don’t take things to personally, shit gets repeated and stupid things are said. If you want to possibly take something from it, take that I said listen to your body.
