Since no one else is commenting or interested in discussing strength training without controversy (apparently), I will discuss this and other topics amongst myself and hopefully be able to spark some interest.
Yes, I have noticed, self, that rolling, lifting, and carrying heavy objects leads to increased strength in other strength/power movements. This is just my experience but it seemed to work pretty well. I’m thinking about implementing some heavy rock carrying into my schedule, may be once a week for starters. I think I’ll use heavy enough rocks so that when I pick them up I will nearly crap myself, in the very least I hope to rip out the crotch of my newest pair of khaki’s. Some will be so heavy and ackward that I will only be able to roll them. Why is that self? I think that this will help develop another dimension of strength that my barbell workouts do not address. What a great complimentary workout idea. Keep us posted on the results. Will do.
That’s stupid, picking up rocks won’t make you strong. You have to go to a gym, wear spandex or at least think about wearing spandex, tighten up your weight belt between sets of everything, grunt alot - especially after a set is over and you are drinking your carbo-power koolaid, then go stand behind the girl on the hammy curl machine and wait your turn. Then, you have to do rack pulls from just below your nutsack with 1000lbs or 455 kilos because that is teaching you how to strain. Superset that with heavy deadlift singles from the floor of around 250lbs in a sumo style, grunting constantly. Then workout in a canyon to help develop your grunting tone and volume. This method will develop confidence which will allow you to freely grunt whenever and where ever you wish. After you complete a series of grunts, which by week two should be roars, you should consume 1/2 gallons of breast milk from any non-human bi-ped. Studies have shown that mountain gorilla colostrum is truly superior to any other colostrum so milking a female mountain gorilla, in the wild of course, should then be the next step in your training to producing ultimate strength, power, and beauty.
On neck training,
Here is a method that has worked great for me to increase the measurement of my neck, and consequentially my head, that’s the head above my shoulders: Go to a quiet, comfortable room with a mirror hanging on the wall, floor or ceiling. Look deeply into the eyes of your reflection, which isn’t really you because you are you, you are not a reflection so if anyone ever tells you that you can see yourself in a mirror they are lying to you and are plotting something against you, for which you need to take pre-emptive measures, typically in the form of murder. While looking at your reflection, use both hands to squeeze the front half your neck. If you do this long enough lymph fluid will fill your neck and cranium and you will now be a jelly head with a thicker neck, dead, but you’ll look better, bigger, whatever.
LAME, LAME, LAME
You can not become bigger, sexier, musclier, whateverer without training to failure. I read on the internet the best one rep to failure movement that will produce better results than anything. I’ll tell you all but make sure you remember where you heard this: Stand fully erect under the loader of a large tractor, with your hands on the underside of the loader bucket arms are fully extended upwards. Now, have someone drop the loader bucket on top of you but have them do it as a surprise to you because this increases the excitability of your muscle fibres. In this single rep you will strain more than you have in your entire life and have acheived complete failure in approximately one second. After all you must train to failure to make gains. It is impossible to fail more on any other exercise.
Edit: Please do not actually attempt to milk a gorilla, choke yourself, or drop a hydrolic loader bucket on your head. These are all very advanced exercises and can be dangerous to under-trained inexperienced lifters.
P.S. murder is never the right answer in the above mentioned training recommendation. Sorry for the confusion.
LAME, you suck.
