Alright heres an interesting argument which might stimulate some debate,
If training with goal of constant progression, doing the same exercises, training the same muscle fiber proportions, and same goals is the key to gaining mass, strengh losing fat, why in the hell did Gym Jones, trainer of the actors for “300” train them otherwise with great success? Honestly, I believe the quote I heard Charles Staley present which was"Everything works, and nothing works" it went something like that.
SO these dudes who some never trained before, started a rigoruos training regimine in which they never repeated the same regimine, sometimes worked on pysocological training where they deadlift blinded folded with unknown weights to themselves! and made monster like progression not ever repeating the same workout twice or so I have read, I sure they used some like movements, but literally no two workouts were identical in the true sense of the word.
So here at T-Nation, are we doing it all incorrectly?
MAybe we’d be better off training for battle, think about it, if you had to go to hand to hand combat, or the fight of your lives where brute power and force were what you needed, excellent conditioning, how the hell would you train, Probably a lot different then you do now. 3 sets of 10 maybe, I think not!
these guys actually trained with the intensity as if they were training to save their lives. Think about this the next time your going to train your forearm extensor muscles or maybe you’d rather not look like thats all you ever do.
