    Yes it is better. If you understood the concept of the slingshot, you wouldn't have asked in this manner. Ill tell you, it allows you to lift weighty your capable of controlling. It helps to get you out the bottom and you can practice pause reps. Yes it means I'm capable of handling 495 but not at the bottom. If used properly you eventually get there. It allows an overload.
    Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

    Thanks for the compliment. I definitely push to impress MYSELF and MYSELF ONLY. I don't do this for anyone else. I do it to stay strong and I do it compete against myself. Ill be 40...June 22. Lets see where TITANIUM takes me. I also will be competing soon in Powerlifting event #14. This year had to take a backseat since my wife is preggers again. Have to save the days for when my son is born.

It allows an overload, a TOOL. That's all it is.

    Rather than post or attempt to create a following of criticism why not just commend someone on effort rather than attempting poor humor. This is why I choose to keep a lot of things I find out to myself. I'm in the business of uplifting and not tearing down people. I don't have time to argue or explain to everyone satisfaction of why and how something works. I found what works for me. I'm a bit confused because in one statement you say it's impressive, the next you question with a lol. Last you ask where the program is from.

    Well I don't respond to negativity, and I don't care to argue on line. I hope you do well with all your goals. If I misunderstood I Apologize but you listed your lol comment twice and I find it condescending. .

    ^^^^ This.

    Hookie, If anything I am impressed beyond words at the numbers you can put up. My comment of '495 lol'. Was the equivalent of 495 holy f**kin sh*t...

    I actually watched your youtube video performing it, and now understand the concept. (I think the band supports your elbows?) All the same, I was just extremely impressed. And appologize if it came across any other way.

    Called it a day! I'm reving up for the final 10 day stretch. Guess what? I'm going back to the RIG. Modification time. So this will be a total 22 day CHEST SPECIALIZATION, I'm going to the gym for 5 days straight, no days in between. This coming Saturday/Sunday will be off since I'm working 12 hour shifts and gym closes by the time in off. Look out I gained inches with this program. On my birthday I will take a side shot and felt shot.

    Happy to report, not a chance of soreness!

    June 17, 2013

    Delts triset:
    Side:Front:Rear
    20lbsx4x10

    Bench Press:
    135x30,
    225x20
    315x8
    405x2
    Slingshot Reps:
    425x4x4

    Machine Flys:
    100x5x30 {60sec rest}

    Notes: Completed this training without a hitch. Damn, my boobies are getting bigger! I lay down and see two raised mounds! More prevalent than before I started this training. I should have time tomorrow to lay it out for everyone. Trust me, it's not for the faint of heart. I read post after post on these boards where people speak of felt problems or how impossible it is to bench a certain weight unless your on AAS or overweight! Wow, they haven't met me. I can assure you the only thing I attribute to my Gainz is bad eating and MCDs. It was a really bad compounding affect when I broker ankle playing intramural Basketball one night in college as a senior. Kept eating as if I was still running and balling 6 days a week and the weight piled on.

    Anyways, 2013 I'm on a lifetime cut and looking to get defined and maintain my power and muscle as I enter the next decade of my life. If your here following, stay with me because I have a lot to tell.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the routine

    This looks killer, not sure how far in the 20 days I could make it, I feel like not a lot of people could complete something like this, but I'll sure give it a shot to see how many days I can make into it

    HokiePride is the name I chose after living in Tazewell Cty in Va for 5.5 yrs. While there the shooting occured and I felt sympathy for those students because they didn't ask for it to happen. They were just trying to get an education. Following this, a buddy of mine worked at the VT games as security. He asked me if I wanted to do it. At first I thought it was a joke. When I found out he was serious I joined the staff. I worked East Side, section 3 for the last 4 years and sadly had to give up my position. I coined the name because of those events. Believe it or not I never followed college football, let alone the Divisions, ACC until I worked there. Of course, I became very beloved and was invited to come back anytime by a few fans who respects me and has season tickets for life!

    Thank you so much. I try to make them interesting, I train this way. It's highly unconventional from what people read in mags. Yes, I get ideas from them but I stick to the basics, nothing fancy and it has worked extremely well. I'm praying I get sponsored one day!

    I know I said this before but I actually did not bring the mag with me but I have a skeleton of it. Now since it's not the true program I will come back and make the mods to it one I get back home, which should be tomorrow or Thursday evening. Undertand it's the same premise but I will lay it out FULLY from the original program in a day or two. Here you go!

  20. 20 Day Chest Speialization!


    First 10 Days are consecutive. The last 10 are a day apart.

    Day 1
    Do this on your first training day of the week, and make bench presses your main exercises, because you'll be strongest after resting over the weekend. Work up to a heavy set of three to six repetitions, and try to set a new personal record each week. After benching, do flat dumbbell presses and cable crossovers for three sets of 20 reps each.

    Day 2
    This session is focused on chest width, so includes wider grip and isolation exercises. Start with parallel bar dips. Do five sets of five reps, adding extra weight if you need to, then perform dumbbell flyes, wide grip pushups and machine flyes for four sets of 25 to 30 reps each.

    Day 3
    This is your upper chest day, with everything done on an incline, except your first exercise. Start with dynamic bench presses. These help refine your technique, and build explosive power on the bench press. Use around 50 percent of your single rep maximum, and do eight sets of three reps, lifting the bar as quickly as possible. Incline barbell presses come next, for five sets of eight reps. Follow these up with three sets of 12 on incline dumbbell presses, then 4 sets of 20 incline cable flyes.

    Day 4 {Will write this in a few days}

    Day 5 {I will write this in a few days}

    Notes.
    How this works is you repeat Day 1-5 twice. Take a day of rest and reset and do every other day of 1-5 for a total 20 days including the rest rest days on the second half of the specialization plan. Please do not get upset if your boobies hurt, lactate {j/k} or you snap a muscle. I go hard on my chest and I love to bench. I found it's a special muscle on my body and mine alone. I fortunately have a huge support of muscle groups which allows me to train this way. If I were to take an extended period of time from lifting then sure I would be sore but that's what supplemets are for.
