  1. Unusual training approach: "EOD feeder exercises for ALL muscles"


    "What? Your left biceps is smaller than your right? Do feeder exercises."


    You surely have heard of this. Its a bro-science approach to get you into symmetry. Example: After arms day, train the lagging left biceps the following day with high reps/low weight.

    Well, I thought:

    "If this works for lagging body parts, why not train the whole body this way -and bring EVERYTHING up, right?"

    Here the breakdown:

    Monday: - Legs/Shoulders
    Tuesday: - Feeders of Legs/Shoulders
    Wednesday: -Chest
    Thursday: -Feeder of Chest
    Friday: -Back
    Saturday: -Feeder of Back
    Sunday: OFF

    I'm 50 years old.
    Regular workout days will be intense -but only once a month brutal. The feeder workouts will focus on pump. Absolutely NOT to failure or fatigue. High rep/low weight, short pauses -stopping at perceived 80% to failure.

  4. There maybe something to this. Lately as my recovery from the seizure improved and endurance came back i started to spent more time upto 1.5 hrs now (could barely survive a solid hour, at first) I've just started weak spot training thru off days. Extra sets for weak, sore stuff. Helps I think.

    Curious to see if applied more rigorously how it goes! Down.

    The theory seems sound, lets see if it holds up in real life. In conjunction with "magical juice" it will almost certainly work!

  6. This will never work. You are wasting your time.

  7. My new thing is VERY slow negatives and sometimes even slow positives. I've found that, for my chest in particular, going very slow really allows me to burn the muscle way more than if I'm just focused on lifting weights and doing reps. I've always been a slow rep guy, but I'm talking like 10 seconds down, 5 seconds up on a bench press and maybe 5-6 seconds down and 3 seconds up on most other movements.

    What is the worst that could happen? My testicle shrinking? They are already raisins, LOL. I'm confident it will work well, the question is:
    Can I keep the pace? Its 6 times x week training...

    That I do already.... Ha! At least every second week. Will keep doing it, especially chest, like you mentioned, slow DB flies and partials for the burn!

    I mean if you really hate your balls, go for it. But, what did they do to you?

  12. Interested to see how this goes.

    The worst that can happen? You will lose all your muscle, get fat and drop a weight on your toes after nicking one of your raisin nuts with a dumbbell.

    Nope. You can't keep it up. You are going to FAIL!

    Of course you do. Actually, I like it better on bench presses. I have to use a really light weight but come the 10th rep or so, I feel it in my chest like a mutha.

    I think the idea is if it helps weak areas... why not try it to make everything grow?

    ^^^ Exactly. Lets grow EVERYTHING with feeding! Penis and all!

  18. Iíve been doing this for a couple weeks for my arms and legs. My biceps, triceps, hammies, and quads definitely stay harder longer. I call it the Cialis effect.

    Seriously, I enjoy doing feeder workouts for the pump. My muscles are harder and mildly sore. I usually donít experience soreness with my regular workouts. I should have a read on hypertrophy after a few more weeks of this.

    Everybody on the internet and AM has bigger muscles than me. Iíll try anything.
