Can I have some lean muscle & strength please? – My Training Journal
Interesting article, cant say that I have performed any of these exercises, but I may incorporate them
A good read, no offense to the writer in the slightest but they're trying to get people to incorporate these lifts by dissing the way a majority of people train, and not by backing up the theories with evidence...sure someone bent pressed 370lbs by training this way...which is very very impressive, but if they trained as hard at military press i'm sure their genetics for strong shoulders would also show through. The undebatable truth is....that bodybuilders are now bigger than ever....powerlifters are more powerful than ever...and strongmen are stronger than ever. I'm not saying old school exercises like these don't have their place among weight lifting, as evidently they do...but i personally wouldn't advise anyone to train solely in this manner.
What does 'solely in this matter' mean? With weights? With speed? Through chains of motion instead of body parts? How do you think strength competitors train?
Any of the mentioned exercises can supplement any program greatly. Traditional bodybuilding is as functionless as can be (who cares how big they are if they can't actually move?), but powerlifters and strongmen are utilizing old school techniques more and more (Heck, those sports ARE old school, where do you think their sport originated? The swing and bent press were both Oly lifts at one time.).
