WHO IS JOHN DAVIES, YOU MAY ASK!
He was doing 20 rep squats before your parents even met. He was deadlifting, cleaning & snatching his pro athletes to Olympic Gold & World Championships before it was cool to be a strength coach. Even just a few years ago, he was ridiculed for using tires, sleds, bands & chains. He's forgotten more about training than most of us will ever know. And he could care less how big his biceps are or if you "like" him. But if you're smart and you want results, you'll soak up every word he says as if they were rain drops in the desert. His name is John Davies. He's known as "The Renegade". He IS Training.

Keith has always been in shape since he joined the US Army in 2005, enlisting as a Cannon Crewmember. He was always fairly small though, capping it at 140 lbs. A few short months ago, while in Iraq, Keith decided to get more serious about being in shape, and to get huge instead of just "in shape" so he googled a bunch of routines, and stumbled upon AM.com. After reading for hours upon hours, he finally decided on an HST full body routine to strengthen his body in preparation for a more serious routine. In just two months his DEADLIFT went from 100 lbs being difficult, to 250lbs being easy. All of his other excercises increased drastically as well, but his DEADLIFT is by far his favorite, because he can, for the first time ever, see a huge V starting to develop. His back is growing off the hook and outpacing the rest of his body, when he faces the mirror his back sticks out on the sides and makes his chest look puny. Keith is in love with the DEADLIFT and thinks that if it was a woman, it would have the looks of Pamela Anderson, the brains of Natalie Portman, and the attitude of Reese Witherspoon. Keith will never stop the DEADLIFT
In 2 months I have gained close to 8 pounds. In addition, not only does the DEADLIFT just make you look like a badass in the gym, just the name DEADLIFT evokes a certain badassery every time you say it...
^ I couldn't tell if the John Davies was the "example" entry or not lol, so I just made mine in the same style! Deadlifts are the ****, and I have seriously seen the most impressive gains of my life doing them
Edit: After a closer read I can tell that it was not the example. But I like how my little story reads, so I will leave it like that
Edit2: Also, if I won that pile of goodies, I would log the crap out of everything, even the gym bag :P

The exercise that helps me most with my grappling and athletic career is definitely SQUATS. I have been doing sets of 20-25 rep squats for at least 4-5 years and there is no going back. I love the burn one gets from doing them not too mention the crazy pumps you get when your legs finally go somewhat catabolic. I do not know what it is but if I am unable to squat at least 3 times a week I feel like something ain't right. Squating gives me a sense of athletic security, it lets me know that I am working hard and it pushes me to the next level. I also tend to sprint pre/post squats to enhance the fast twitch muscle fibers, all my squat reps are quick reps as well. I have noticed that I am able to keep up easily with collegiate wrestlers due to my leg strength, this goes to show me that squats are a MUST!

My favorite Exercise is one i semi-made up, but i know others have probably done it before.
I used it for golf, to have a more stable base as well as strengthen my back and improve my traps.
So you stand in golf posture and do BentOver Rows, then when you hit failure, you do shrugs till failure, then you do deadlifts to failure. When you fail with the Bent Over Rows, you tend to cheat less on the traps IMO, then Deadlifts to keep the cardio so i would not have to do cardio!
I called it the TriRow. Yea kind of corny, but i got 4th in 2007 Golf state championship shooting 73 70 and i attritube my stable base and strong back to helping get out of the rough! as well as keep my CV ability due to the deadlifts in tact, making walking 18 holes with clubs on my back a breeze!
So yea thats my story No homo/hate

Wow this is serious promo.
The best exercise for me is squats. Now I have a love hate relationship with them. When I first started lifting 5+ years ago I didn't take them serious. I would just rep 135 and call it a day. But now I focus on them and put in the energy. Slowly got up to 225 and now I'm hitting well over 350. I have seen and increase in over all muscle development since I have made squats my focus. The width in my legs has enabled me to add serious weight to my frame and IMO the best overall excerise one can do to add the size they are wanting. They are fastest growing muscle in the body so put them to good use an I love walking like I nee a wheel chair the next few days after leg training.
Thanks for the AWESOME promo. Good luck to all!

My favorite exercise has to be the BarBell Flat Bench Press:
No I'm not a "what are you doing today" "oh chest" guy, nor do I favor chest over any other bodypart. The reason the Flat BB is my favorite exercise is because it truly pits you against the Iron! Other exercises there are so many ways to bail by safely dumping the weight. Squats, you bail out through the back and duck out. Curls you can just drop the weight into the rack, deads you can just drop the weight to the floor etc etc. With the Flat BarBell Bench, there is no where for the weight to go but UP! The strongest muscle in the body is your mind and you have to create the connection with the weight in order to make sure the weight goes where it belongs. Knowing you can get buried by the BarBell when benching, you have to have a powerful mindset! It all begins there...
The Flat Bench is the "King" of exercises also because it is a full body equalizer. Just about every muscle and bodypart from your feet, to your glutes, to your shoulders tris and chest (there are more) are involved in a proper press! When done correctly, one can garner some serious mass and total body power!
So many people shy away from the Flat BB Press (because they dont know how to press properly), or think they are getting everything out of it when there is so much more to be gained. I was never a fan of this exercise untill recently. Reason being, it always hurt my shoulder, I was very weak in this movement compared to "any" other exercise and I just didn't feel comfortable doing it. After realizing this is such a "bread and butter" movement and that I am truly missing out by not utilizing this exercise in my regimine, I went to the drawing boards and spent hours digging deep into the "basics" of how to bench taught by powerlifters that would explain the difference between benching for power and benching for bodybuilding or hypertrophy (yes there are differences between benching for raw strength and creating hypertrophy). Not giving up on this as I'm always looking to improve my physique, I've spent numerous days taking steps back and leaving my ego at the door. Dropping weight to very light numbers so I can find the "perfect position". Getting looks and stares, "thats all he can lift?" I knew in the back of my mind though, this was happening for a reason so I kept at it. Sure enough, after slowing things down and taking it step by step, I was then able to find that "perfect position" and get locked into the bench.
Since then...this has been the number one exercise to improve my physique overall!

For me the exercise that changed everything that I am is the Barrel Curl... let me explain:
in Iraq in 2004 I discovered that I was near 30% BF and was a mess. One day I picked up the barrel to our .50 caliber machine gun. I started doing curls with it. This activated muscles that hadn't been used in years. I was re-addicted and recommitted. I did these curls for the rest of the deployment, and have since moved to BB curls... So this is it for me, not that it changed the muscles as much as changed my life

Man this is hard to come up with one exercise BUT I know what it is after a short perusal of the mind.
Incline DB Press - This was something from age 14 on I was told I would never be able to do (any chest exercises but specifically incline) because of the impingement problems I have in both shoulders (congenital defect that I have fought my entire life and more so during my swimming/water polo career). That being said, once I started seriously training with my friend [who has mentored me from day 1] I told him I can't do chest exercises; he looked at me and smiled. From that point on, he taught me how to start light, build strength in the joint and be patient most importantly. My 8-10 rep max has gone from 70 DB to 105 in two years (110 if I'm doing 5 reps, see pink magic log). This is really what I use as a major motivator in my training because I [one] was told I could not do it and proved that wrong and [two] have since surpassed my friend in weight that I can move at that rep level. It is something special when you surpass a goal and the student starts to outlift the teacher; let's just say he is quite proud of his protege. Also, I used to have some serious man boobs at 235, now my chest is proportionate to the rest of my body and expanding to be lean and mean (enough that my GF is pissed my chest is bigger than hers!).

I would have to say squats. My senior year of high school my wrestling coach would have us do 20 rep sets of squats. Before that I would do decent squats considering I was in a high school weight training class. But after squatting with my coach I would get that low perfect squat. Then I knew what it meant to squat. Hell after that I knew what it meant to train. My coach made my life hell at practice but I thank him for really getting me to squat and kicking my ass daily at practice. U have to have a great base to have great body and that starts with the legs.

The exercise that changed my life was down/ups or sprawl/get ups. I was overweight until I was 15 and wrestled. The conditioning in wrestling from moves like that changed my life and got me addicted to fitness. I joined the weight lifting team at my high school where I competed at the 169 pound weight class and would legal press up to 285 and clean/jerk 240 at 16 in high school.

Best move for me has to be POWER CLEANS. I do lots of squats, bench and shoulder press. I was strong and at a stand still. An old school guy told me to start doing power cleans and man has it helped. Yes it is a lot of technique, but once I got it down and moverd up in weight, my bench has gone up, squat is up, shoulder press is up, and I no longer have lower back pain. Yes everyone looks at ya like your crazy when you are doing them, but man they work
NOT an IFORCE rep, but their new VMS Protean is amazing. I also dropped 15lbs on the testabolan2 and rev2 stack last month.

It's not fancy, it doesn't involve weights it's the PUSH UP!
When I started martial arts last year, it's the first thing they get you to do, 10 knuckle press ups are a sylabus requirement for White belts. Sounds easy and yes I could them, but I learnt a whole new respect for bodyweight exercises. I was just in awe as I watched the rest of class do a solid 20 -30 mins of every press up imaginable, diamonds to crucifix, staged (pause and hold from start, same mid-way, top, mid-way, back to start), single, double claps and explosive pressups where you explode upwards with all limbs leaving the floor (sorry can't remember the technical name for these) and divebombers.
Yes that first lesson was a lfe changng moment, no matter how strong I thought I was and looked, learning how important your core strength is was humbling.
PUSH UPS have improved my core strength, Muscle definition, my posture, my sex life, my weight training and have given me a sense of acheivement, I love being able to hang with the big boys at taekwondo now, well for the most part... One handed still has me beat but I'm getting there!
PUSH UP, PINK MAGIC, PERFECT!!!!

Dead lifts for sure helped with my over all physique. Just the strenth and size that I have put on. I remember when 135 was insain to lift from the ground and now fast forward and Im topping 315 like its no bodys business. Dead lifts are a staple of my diet and workout regimn.
