Had the most peculiar conversation today at the gym.
Was doing a standard heavy back workout - lots of heavy rows, deads, and weighted pull-ups. (using a 4-6 rep protocol)…
anyway, this (much smaller) guy approaches me and tells me that I am doing everything all wrong. He proceeds to show me these weird ass partials on the power rack for chest and then he tells me that he won’t train again for 8-9 days - and that he’s overloading his pecs into new growth.
I tried not to laugh at him, so I pressed him for more info on the source of this interesting training philosophy. I thanked him for the demonstration in partials and went on my way. I was too tired to argue with him, besides what the hell do I care?
The guy told me he’s following this book:
Frankly, to me, this sounsd like some psuedo-Mentzer “Heavy Duty” bullshit. But I figure I’d throw it out to the board and see if they’ve had people in their gyms spouting this stuff off.
I figure if this stuff really works I’d have heard about it on T-Nation by now, don’t you think?
