Hi Dr Darden,
Continuing my strategy to combine three of your regimen in a repeated cycle two times a week. To keep the sessions interesting, I feel the need to add a new or different excercise here and there once in a while.
In your recent books, I notice that there aren’t that many dumbell excercises? Any specific reason for that, or just a coincidence? I would guess that the activation of separate arms makes the excercise harder for novice trainees, as well as put a larger amount of stress on the shoulders in general?
I used to love doing incline dumbbell presses for pecs for some reason, prior to getting into HIT with machines. Now, I was thinking about trying out the dumbbell flye press (as instructed by Christian Thibaudeau in a relevant article on T Nation) in a HIT manner (4-5 sec down, 4-5 sec up). I would love to hear your opinion on this, as well as any recommended excercise, that in your opinion work exceptionally well with two dumbbells?
Any other followers that have any favourable recommendations on Dumbbells on a Darden regimen?
