"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

thought I'd post a couple. the deadlift this week was practice, just playing with my opener. I'll do the same next week with probably 495-500 and then the meet the week after that.

It's been a long time since I've been on the Pendulum. I was a little pissed. Heavier than I thought it was gonna be. Looks like it was only 30-40secs. Next week I'll murder it.

Great stuff! Where are you from? Tough to find Pendulum equipment. How do you set up your training when powerlifting?

Wayne,

I do wonder about your views on rep speed.

The pace of the reps in the hip press and incline press videos Stu posted above aren't really that different to the rep speed displayed by Mark Suffolk in his videos.

Both Mark and Stu use rep speeds that fall within the realms of what I would consider safe, controlled and smooth, yet you're there going on about how great they are because they're accelerated.

Great videos anyway Stu. Incline press was a great display of intensity.

Thank you for the comments.

Mike,

I live in Grand rapids, MI. i am only doing a deadlift meet Nov. 7th. I have always had good success with a Black's Gym/Mike Bridges format if I was to prep for a full meet. Something like this:

Day 1 Moderate weights on powerlifts w/ some "assistance"

Day 2 building up weaknesses, strength imbalances

Day 3 heavy powerlifts

Hit27,

I am 6'0" and weigh 206

Great pull on the deadlift. That weight is no joke.
That hip press is a really nice piece. I enjoyed one of those for several months up my way.

All the best with your training.

Hi spud,

Glad in a way you brought that up, as to be honest most of the times that I chat about rep speed has been on my speed, but and its a big but, but in the past I was referring to my 30, 20 or 15RMs.

And when I do my pullovers {and please note this is a long ROM exercise, thus its the more slower of my reps} I timed them, and my average on my 30 reps was .85/.85, and surprisingly it was an average of .85/.85, and even more surprisingly it was still .85/.85 on the 15 rep set.

I think the reason for the average rep speed being just about the same, is that after the first set and the rest, your totally warmed up and far stronger relative.

But if you note Mark and Stu reps were only in the 4 to 6 range.

Stu average rep for 6 reps on the press was 2.5/2.5. But his concentric was more like 2 seconds and eccentric 3 seconds

This means that if I was going to time my reps in that range my reps must be slower. However as I like to make the negative as result producing as possible for a few reason.

1,
As its under loaded I do not control the first half of the negative, thus making the second half feel far heaver.

2,
Then at the transition from negative to positive, I explode out of it, making the MMMTs {Momentary Maximum Muscle Tensions, great to see you back John} what they are called MMMTs, as these tensions now will be reaching roughly as high as 140%

In a controled rep, they will be as low as 80%

3,
What maybe Mark and Stu do not realise is that they are missing out so much on the negative, as the negative will give more size and strength than the positive, because you are 40% stronger there. This is another reason why lots have sticking points so soon, as they are hardily working their negative strength.

I will try and do, and time some low reps tomorrow.

I still misunderstand why you think my reps are not smooth, controlled and safe ??? As I am doing the exact same thing but faster. Ok as I am doing them faster there is MORE force used, and thus MORE tension to the muscles, but as tension is the primary stimuli for hypertrophy and strength, I want the highest tension I can get. I don?t see how injury can be had, well there can be, but as long as your warmed up and know what your doing.

Nice ROM on the Hip Press! I've never had the pleasure of using a Pendulum Hip Press... Looks comparable to the old Hammer Strength Leg Press?
