I don’t know. Why don’t you ask them? And I have worked out with pros before. I can not speak for every pro but one I know of can attribute the base of his size and strength was gained using a lot of old school methods. Once he got a good base of size and strength he started getting fancy, so to speak, but old school methods were good enough to earn him an IFBB pro card as a natural. And I am not disparaging anyone’s program or even saying this is better than the other what I am saying is just because it isn’t new doesn’t mean it isn’t valid or effective.
Why are you so opposed to him trying something different? It’s like this has actually gotten to be a trigger point for you.
A trigger point? I don’t think so. He asked for opinions on a program. I gave him my opinion and the logic behind it. So did a couple others. I also directed him to some links with how some of the bigger, stronger guys on this site got that way. He can make up his own mind on whether he wants to try it out. It’s not like I’m taking away his gym membership and forcing him not to do it.
[quote] I have tried a lot of old school methods, just to see what they would do and all I can say is I am bigger and stronger than you, so the proof is in the pudding.
So what? And there are guys bigger and stronger than you that have never heard of this 20 rep squat 3 days a week method. You admitted yourself that you didn’t try it, so it’s not like it was responsible for your size today. I didn’t even say all old school methods were worthless. I’m specifically talking about the 20 rep squat method the OP outlined in his 1st post.
Well, Cronus said he has tried it and it worked. Why the automatic assumption it isn’t good for the OP? It’s a learning process.
And if you look at your previous posts, your contention is that newer methods are intrinsically better, which anyone who has lifted for an appreciable amount of time and kept an open mind would tell you is not a definitively true statement or assumption.
Anyway, adrenalinx try it out and let us know what happens and don’t be afraid to try different things than other sheeple. Life’s about learning and growing, IMO.
