    the frat boy routine


    i go to a big state university. lets just say my gym is comprised of 3 or 4 serious lifters and then about 1000 jackass frat boys that do a chest/bicep everyday type routine. the thing is, some of these guys do have impressive arms. and we all know how they train, 40 sets for biceps, 60 sets for chest, everyday.

    so my question is, how do these guys not overtrain their arms? probably gear, but still. makes me wonder if the whole high-volume will lead to overtraining is overblown.

    If all you are training is arms and chest then you could do a high volume. Both muscles are not that large so they do not tax the body to much when worked. Wheres if you squat and dead then you are taxing your systems much much more.

    In my opinion, they are overtrained and when they quit the juice they will have nothing to show for it.

    because usually you can move the entire stack by doing the exercise incorrectly.

    I lasted working out a week at my schools rec center, before I went and got a membership at a real gym in town. Now I go back there about once a month to train, just to show those idiots how much the girls like big legs too!!

    Delta Tau Delta is all about the "half bench press w/ ass off bench and spotter getting a simultaneous trap workout from doing upright rows" lazy bastards only go half way down while the spotter practically upright rows the weight since the bencher cant handle it. He may get two reps on his own, but the spotter helps him through 8 more lol

    At my school I see them hitting up cable crossovers, cable curls, cable kickbacks, cable this and that. I think these exercises can be incorporated into a routine but I never see some of these guys on anything but the cable center!

    LOL. This is a funny thread.

    A lot of my friends at the school gym, some serious some not, now think I'M not serious b/c they see me doing the full body HST workouts now... i try to explain to them what it is! grrrr haha... they all think I'm a Newb

    Most common thing at my school is the guys who throw all the weights and scream as they lift, even though it is a tiny amount of weight, and their screaming could be better put towards breathing correctly on the lift. Oh, and squatting down about two inches instead of all the way

    My dad was a beta all through college, but I decided not to go through with the whole greek thing. I have several friends that are in fraternities that are pretty cool, but most I dont really care for.

    Just wondering, why do you guys care about what others are doing? It seems to me to be a waste of energy to even be concerned about how and why others train a particular way. If you know what works, stick with it and have fun.

    comic relief
    im certainly not the person to tell them what they should be doing, what they should be wearing, how they should eat.
    I don't like people telling me how to train, how to eat, etc. So I would never tell that to anyone else.

    I have respect for 95% of all people in the gym, the 5% are the kids that talk for 15minutes between, don't take the plates off the equipment, are sitting on machines talking on their cell phones about how drunk they got last night...
    kids that are in the gym because it's socially cool - i'm in a college town and you can't help but notice.

    same here, I go to a college where guys do not know anything about training. Matter of fact my friend acted like he hasn't even seen a person warm up with 185 on incline bench. I also really hate the guys who make sure they are matching and looking cool when they go to the gym like it is a fashion show. And lastly, the guys that stare at you when you work out. LOL. J/K!

    And while we're chatting, I think Virtual Bodybuilding is dead. It's still not up. I think the guy who created it said **** it and moved on.

    I keep pretty much to myself with the exception of the other bros that actually work hard.

    I do however get a kick out of the local frat types who ask me for advice yet never follow it.

    Like

    Q: "How do I hit upper chest?"

    A: "Try incline barbell press, then weighted dips, then finish out with incline flys and cable flys, works for me"

    Q: "Yeah, but I like machines"

    A: "Ok, just do that then" *sigh* Don't ask for advice if you're not willing to try it.

    Then the frat guys go on to do their eighteen different exercises for chest and wonder why they never get any bigger or stronger.

    Whatever.
