While I’m whining about stuff that’s been mildly aggravating me, here’s another one.
Where did the belief get started that training like someone will give you their physique? Their physique is THEIR physique. Using their methods will, at best, get you a better version of YOUR physique.
IT,s true that just about ANY remotely sound routine, worked hard, will produce some results for just about anybody. It may even be a fact that just about any remotely sound routine, WORKED HARD, will produce decent results for most people.
It is, however, absolutely untrue that because somebody else got excellent results with something that you will too.
Look guys, there are hundreds of variations on everything. If you spend your life trying whatever the last impressive looking guy you saw does you will one day find yourself past your prime with half ass results, fumbling around wondering what went wrong and no philosophy of your own.[/quote]
That belief has been around since people started training. Add to that, Weider mags from the past with front cover blurbs saying build bicep peaks like Robby Robinson or how to have upper pecs like Franco. It’s voodoo that people want to believe. I know did when I first started training as a kid and didn’t have anyone to tell me different.
I like kettlebells as a conditioning tool. I’m a low rep guy basically. If I have to add reps to an exercise I will first add weight. With kettlebells it isn’t really possible to add weight so it has to be reps or buy a new one and I won’t do that when more reps will suffice. Besides that, they are fun to throw.
