    Charles Poliquin increased my bench press in 30 seconds or so using dry point needle techniques.

    Cross friction massage to connective tissue can be very effective if you have someone who knows what they are doing. Deep tissue massage/anything that improves tissue quality between sessions.

    1) Taking 5 to 7 days off from all physical activity 2 to 3 times a year.

    2) If not in an overtrained state - 4 to 6 weeks of eccentric-only training.

    That's all I got for now....

    Gotta love that retard freak strength! New research is showing that it may not be so bad for long term memory. Might even be a neuroprotective. I know their are some people out their who would wake up and smoke everyday, get good grades, and they still don't seem like idiots. I think other drugs will damage your brain more than pot.

    Myofascial Release, as mentioned is a life-saver.

    Also, you can never squat too often.

    Lots of heavy "negatives" work. May require a spotter to really push this. Do this for a couple months and you'll be amazed at your strength increases.

    I've heard this. More info pls.. Does this mean eating it early in the day helps expand your stomach so you can eat more during the day, or does this mean eat salad before your meal to get more down?

    Stretching!

    Lengthens your muscles, you look bigger and get better seperation
    You also avoid injury!

    Doing pullups as WIDE as possible will make your shoulders broader over time...I know, my completely slack and un pumped chest measurement is about 38, I wear a 42 suit jacket because of my shoulders
