At long last the much awaited Scott report, which was inspired by the Levrone report, is here!! Now you can see how the "real" champs workout, ha ha...Please view this sitting down as I don't want any law suits from people who fainted in disbelief at the gargantuan size and intensity revealed in this video. These exercises are what I am doing at the moment except for a few hand stands. I vary the routine slightly now and then.

Not much leg work here as recently I hurt my knee doing extensions, so I'm giving them a long break. More video's will come as soon as I take them. Any comments or advice is welcome!

Thanks,
Scott

Hey SCott! Great job on the vid, I applaud you for posting it!

I was left wondering why you choose to do the chins verses just working on the pull downs? I only ask because of the speed in which they are done is faster and your negatives were not as long as just doing the neg. only for the typical recommended 8-10 sec.

I'm not critizing, just curious. Are you doing them just to ck. progress in using your body weight?

Keep up with more vids, it's always fun to watch the demostrations!

Thanks!

Scott,

I suspect you will be getting a lot of positive feedback. Your form, as far as I am concerned, was great. You had a FROM and a slight pause at the top of each rep. Your effort level was top notch; especially with the NO chins. I think you'll find that if you wrap your thumbs around the bar you will squeeze out an extra rep or two. Make sure you crush the bar with your hands on each chin.

BTW, if you are really interested in building up your chins I would suggest doing multiple sets of NTF chins on some of your workouts. I know that is "not in line" with traditional HIT protocol, but it has worked well for many aspiring chinners over the years. Good video and I commend you for sharing it with us!

P.S. Southbeach, I think I speak for the forum when I say we fully expect to see YOUR chinning video when you are 56.

Nice video, good ROM and technique. If I were you I would stop doing the negatives afterwards, and just focus on adding 1 rep at a time to your set.

Scott, if you get some bikini girls as spotters, you could probably have your own TV show. By all means post more video.

Brain damage from lack of essential minerals and amino acids found in meat, combined with an ultimately terminal overdose of estrogen from all the soybeans.

Nice work Scott and thanks for the shout out ;)

Do you often make use negatives as set extenders on the chins or is this a recent addition?

Liked the tools in your shop too - saw a lathe, drill press and a monster tool chest (looks like the stanely or craftsman model).

Also liked the little hulk you had perched behind you for motivation on the negatives (just don't expect to look like the green guy any more than Zane).

Looking fwd to seeing the rest of your training vids.


SB,

Lift some weights.

Hi Scott,

You seem like a very humor-oriented guy, and I appreciate that.

I like the gym set-up in your garage.

Good form on the chins, and very good muscularity in the upper body.

Keep them coming!

Woohoo, great stuff, but you forgot my name boohoo.

You did fine, and believe it of not I thought your rep speed was fine, I myself would have gone a bit faster, but I will not turn this into one of those debates, as its your progress report.

Look forward to more videos; I will also make some more videos, as I have a nice new HD camera.

Great video Scott, the chin is my favoutite exercise.
My 5 year old daughter was watching it and she wants to know if you are the strongest guy in the whole world.
I made progress for a while by not going to failure and adding a little bit of exta weight.

Yahoo! The dang thing finally worked! I've been fusing with these dang videos for some time now and could not get one posted for nothing. I know, only 4 chins but I already told you I could only do 4. I'm working on 5. I just do the negatives after as I thought they would help as that's all I can do in strict form. I start out on the bar hanging from the ceiling as it's thinner and I seem to be able to do more than on the Nautilus Multi machine which has a very thick handle and I find harder to use. I'll post my behind the neck machine efforts soon.

Excellent start... I am impressed that you could speak as clearly as you did at the end of negatives... I want to see the shot after the camera was off....

Great vid, Scott and very full ROM on those reps.

On this "Only 4 reps?" business, a suggestion (or series of). Simon Says:

1. Take a week off from chins.

2. When you come back drop the negatives (temporarily).

3. Work that partial 5th rep a little more each week.

4. Bet you'll see a full 5th rep in 2- 4 sessions.

5. Do the negatives for a couple of sessions after you hit 5 and then repeat steps 1-4.

I believe if you do those negs all the time, you're making too much damage for recovery AND supercompensation to occur between chin workouts.

As you can tell, these are just my usual thoughts on the dangers of turning up the intensity knob "up" too far all the time.

Best Regards,
Scott

Great video Scott you are in great shape not just for your age either there would be plenty of other younger men envious of you as well

keep the videos coming Levrone should watch yours to see how its done properly

That was a great workout. That is HIT.

Did you ever think about performing a static hold followed by a slow negative at the end of that fourth rep?

Congratulations, and we must remember there are many people who cannot do a single chin... of course not only being a function of strength but of bodyweight obviously... one thing, as far as advice about how to get more chins... shouldn't the advice be how to get bigger lats and/or biceps rather than more reps per se... and I think this might involve doing partials focused on just barely clearing the chin over bar, and not going to a dead hang at the bottom, in fact, not that much below where upper arms are parralel to floor, (moment arm exercise)... find a weight that will have you failing in about 40 seconds or less, and rather than add reps, add weight to a belt and get heavier within same tul... just my two cents... great humor in video... and you look great for any age.... thanks for posting...

Better then Santa! ;)

Scott, as far as I remember you want to bring up your lats via the chins. To do this I would advice to retract your scapula (shrug shoulders down) in the dead hang position and start moving up after that. To do that easier you should use a grip a bit wider so that the hands are covering your front delts in the top position.
You also want to hold top contraction for a second, already when your chin just clears the bar (there was kinda hitch at top when you cleared the bar, avoid that).
Also gripping with the thumb may help with the recommended hand position.

The form you displayed in the vid was more biceps emphasis then lats.

Best,

Franco

Great stage presence there, Scott. You may become an internet-celebrity if you keep up with that show! Hell, even a tv-chanel may call you sooner or later (I'm not yet speaking about Hollywood but who knows...). :)

Hi Scott,

Great video, and I think this is valuable to forums like these to be able to put a face and body to the names and tiny avatars, as well as posts on the forums.

Seems some are offering training advice.

Where you looking for "advice/conversation" or where you just posting to simply communicate your routine and "style" to the list?

One thing that DOES come through is the fact that you LOVE to TRAIN and talk training. Keeping that alive and well is key to achieving your goals.
