So, sometime around 1925 I promised to make a thread about training routines/systems/methods I've found useful out of the fucking ocean of the things out there.
There aren't really THAT many (surprise), and this is all ultimately stuff for guys who want to get big and strong and are willing to eat for that etc (and have enough brain cells to figure out how to adjust things to keep progressing/not getting flat-out fat etc)... Lots of things for beginners (90% of T-Nation) and intermediates (8% of T-Nation) especially...
This feels like work. That's bad.
Also, if you feel that no drug-free trainee (or no trainee at all) should eat 1.5-2 grams of protein per lb of bodyweight... That lifting big doesn't have anything to do with bodybuilding... And that a 405 lb bench is somehow a near-impossible achievement for a natural bodybuilder rather than a stepping stone you fully expect to take after 2-4 (or 5, you long-armed snail) years of serious training... If you'd rather curl the 50's for 4 sets of whatever rather than the 100's for one set... If you have a love affair with C.P. and Lyle MacD and Casey Butt and all those guys... Then this will definitely not be of any interest to you.
So I'd like to know if there are still guys around (well, I know there are, but most of those seem to be fairly well set-up routine and diet wise by now i.e. H4M, Way, Josh, Bug and co) who would be interested in the, well, whatever you call it, Powerbuilding? -approach.
